    Next Season - New Signings for 17/18

    OK, who would you like to see come in during the summer, and what positions do we need to improve, or cover? I'll start with a GK; Lawrence Vigouroux, Really impressed when we played Swindon, they have been relegated so am sure he will be looking to move on? Heard he's a bit 'temperamental'...
  2. Question Realistically how many players will sign before the transfer window closes?

    Just over 48 hours to go...... So being realistic how many players will PB/RM bring in? i think we need at least 4 and I'm going to be optimistic and say we will sign 4 CB CM FWD X 2 (one tall, one pacy who can double up as a mother winger if needed) surely we we will some arrivals starting...

    Is another Championship moment coming sooner than we thought?

    Since our kamikaze run of three defeats against Millwall, Doncaster and Swindon we have now picked up three wins, and a draw giving us a return of ten points, eight goals for and only one conceded. We also sit in 7th place in the FL1 table equal on points with Millwall and one behind Coventry...

    March: Make or Break?

    Four of our six games this month are away (Wimbledon, D&R, Burton and Bury) with tough games at home to Wycombe and an unpredictable Cambridge. If we can get through this period with 11/12 points and taking something at Burton, we could be set up nicely for April and the final game in May...
  7. What achievable improvements would you like to see?

    As you may recall, I attended a Supporters Groups Forum on behalf of the Zone a little while back, instigated by the Shrimpers Trust. At that meeting we discussed getting together a 'shopping/wish list' of things that the supporters in general feel could improve their experience of supporting...
  8. Tangled up in Blue


    http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/aug/01/conservative-voters-ukip-coalition-poll A new poll suggestst that 30% of Tory voters would like to go into coalition with UKIP after the next election. No suprises there then.It won't happen though. With only one or two MP's, (and hopefully...

    Were we ready anyway?

    In recent weeks, the lads have really shown the character and desire that should have been enough to take us to L1. But, and I hate to say it, would we realistically have been able to complete? We'd be dead and buried if we had a 13 match winless run in the league above. Just trying to find some...
  10. Question Play-Offs. Who would you prefer?

    Who would we all prefer to play in the play-offs, realistically? Personally, either Oxford or Burton for me. (If we get Burton it would mean playing them three times in a row)... Rochdale Scunthorpe Chesterfield Fleetwood Burton Oxford York Plymouth Dag & Red

    Win or bust tonight

    Just wondering what people think regarding the result tonight. We have spent the past few weeks saying 'today is a must win game' etc. Well now we have finally dropped out of the play off places we really can not afford anymore mistakes. Unfortunately however, it is very difficult to see an end...

    Current players values

    With Cresswell's bid for £50k turned down just wondering what people think realistically if we received bids for certain players at what price we would accept?
  13. Question Sturrock or who????

    So, loads of you are calling for Sturrocks head, but, seriously, who would you want to see come in and take over? We have no war chest, the players get paid late so motivating is a constant problem, Barker admits the boys are worried about off field issues, they have families & mortgages too &...

    Don, Torquay, Plymouth- realistically

    A lot of chatter about how we need 3 wins out of 3 over the next 3 fixtures but realistically, with this being Southend, I just can't see it happening. What is the general consensus on how many points we are going to pick up?

    Wembley - Just a day out?

    Is the thought of Wembley considered just a day out, or more important to you than that? For me its the one sporting dream that remains in my catalogue. I have done FA cup Finals, Ive been to the Wrold Cup, attended many England games at the new and old stadium, Ive seen Essex in Lords finals...
  16. January Shopping List

    Who do you realistically believe that we could bring in and who do you want? Also what players would you like to see leave this month?

    Exiled Shrimpers - Living Abroad

    So since I found out that I'm moving abroad myself in half a year's time, it has dawned on me that there are quite a lot of internationally-exiled Shrimpers on SZ. I've always known the fact, but never really thought about it until I found out that I'll be joining your ranks in supporting Blues...

    Best Home Atmospheres ?

    Prompted by the Brum thread we could do one of these every few days, so we don't dilute the current one. I can do 70s onwards. Plenty on here can do mid 50s to 70s when five figure attendee were the norm for a Div 3 South team tha had perhaps only once or twice realistically skirted with...
  19. Question What are you expecting from Freddy this season?

    Message Removed.
  20. Question What would the Trust achieve with a seat on the Board?

    I have been reading the "Tour Discussion" with some interest. If the Trust achieve their aim and obtain a seat on the Board what will realistically be achieved? How would the Trust member vote? In my experience of Board Meetings Directors vote during the meeting so there will be no opportunity...
