    Southend United all time mean machine 11

    The team that no one wants to play. None of them shirked a tackle, most of them loved a header and a flying elbow. If you knew he was coming, you knew you'd get clattered if you still had the ball. Unusually for me, i'm going for 2x attacking fullbacks in a 5- 2- 3 fomation. The fallen over...

    Your all-time greatest 2nd XI

    There will be a lot of names in your all-time XI who write themselves in. For example those of us who were lucky enough to see Chrissy Powell wiggle it for us in his playing days :Worthy: are almost certainly going to be including him at left-back in their all-time XI. But figuring out the...

    Pre-season friendlies

    It's pretty quite on "The Zone" so why not start the perennial discussion about pre-season friendlies? What are you hoping for? Who are you hoping to see at Roots Hall? What changes (if any) do you think C.P. will bring in? Pre-season tour anyone?
  6. Dagenham in Trouble

    A Dagenham supporting friend of mine has said they are in serious financial difficulty. He normally has his finger on the pulse, so not just a wild rumour. Anybody else heard anything?

    Zone Update New Forum platform questions and answers

    Cricko has given us the good news, the infrastructure that keeps the Zone rolling along is soon approaching it’s death throes, and like Roots Hall it needs replacing. So at some time in the not too distant future we’re off to a new platform, and with it new bits to try out and to...

    Zone Update The new season as far as The Zone goes

    We once again thank you for all you do to support these forums. We have to make some costly changes over the next 12 months as we have to change format and will no longer be with Vbulletin after so many years as they no longer offer security or help with us...They moved on to vB5 which does not...

    Average weekly wage in League 1

    Not sure where they’ve got the figures from but https://t.co/fwBUl1ypH6?amp=1 We pay the 17th highest average weekly wage, around half of what Northampton and MK Dons pay, not much less than half of Bury and still less than Oldham. Only Shrewsbury and Plymouth finished above us paying less...

    OS - Through the Years with the Gaffer

    Forgive me if I missed someone else posting this, I'm not the most observant of fans; but there's a great interview with CP on OS talking about his time here as both a player & manager. He mentioned when Webby first signed from Aldershot after a 5-0 drubbing when he was MOTM, I remember that...

    The youth/reserve teamers

    It seems that the club is bearing fruit in terms of youth coming through to the u23s and the first team. A good few have had an opportunity in the first team this season with one becoming a real find. Who else is there to look out for? I don't watch the youth or u23s but read the reports...
  14. First Trip to Roots Hall

  19. Clean Sheets under SCP

    Heard on Saturday that Oxley kept 16 clean sheets last season - equivalent to 1/3 of our league season. 10 (2/3ish) of those clean sheets were under SCP, which was essentially just the final third of the season. Exciting for next season to think we are twice as likely to keep a clean sheet under...
