    References, Wages and P45s

    Due to this poxy ressesion and a few other bits and bobs I have had to put the Motorcycle Recovery on hold and attempt to get out of this hellhole that is work. Now I have an interview coming up in the very near future and I am quietly convident of landing the post. Vastly better money, hours...
  4. Stand up if you like southend

    Went to the palace theatre tonite to see the shrimpers own Terry Alderton. Xcellent. very funny. lots of references to sufc. even came on at the end with an sufc shirt: rebus sponsor, number 24, players name - newman. £350 it cost him, apparently. Any one else there? or...
  5. Memory Lane Life as a football supporter in the 60's.

    I'm currently midway through an assignment on Subculture's during the 60's (No, I'm not a history student), and was wondering if anybody could give me an insight, personal experiences or simply a description of what being a Southend Supporter was during the 60's. Any references to the Mods...

    Southend fans could set a standard

    This season has started as we all wanted but are the fans setting the same standards as the team? Instead of moronic chants of "We pay your benefit" to Northern clubs and references to rioting recently, why not set a standard for others to admire and chant only for Southend United. Yes, ignore...
  7. Financial Cat amongst the Pigeons??

    I am informed by someone with absolutely impeccable contacts (at the highest levels) in Southend planning circles that Sainsburys failed to complete the planned purchase of the former Prospects College site which was scheduled to happen last Friday. I wonder if this has any connection to...

    The Rob Noxious Retro Radio Show

    My fellow 'Zoners, I just wanted to let you know that I'm going on air this Saturday at noon for my first radio programme. I don't think that I'll be able to get any SUFC references in there just yet, but I do hope to be saying a little bit about the Leigh Folk Festival from last week-end. I'll...

    5 years on and we're still considered racists

    Found this little gem of a quote on the Southend Yahoo email group. Take from a Bradford blog (I assume it's www.boyfrombrazil.co.uk) Now, I don't usually condone threatening messages but if my memory serves me right, didn't this guy seem to have it in for our support after the disgusting...

    Players wages last season

    Sorry if this has been covered before, I try to read as many of the posts that I can, but some will inevitably get missed. There are still constant references to the players last season under-performing because they weren't getting paid and who can afford to work for nothing. But I was under...

    TV for tonight

    Guys and girls, Just wanted to point out something on the TV tonight that will get you that little bit more excited about the World Cup. After the England hopefuls, including the likes of Hart, Johnson, Huddlestone et all take on Mexico, on Channel 5 they will be showing Mike Bassett:England...

    United for Southend

    Does anyone else remember the United for Southend campaign that was quite prominent in the early 90s? For reference, Jobson had started talks with Basildon Council in January 1992 over a new 25,000 all-seater stadium in the New Town; I seem to recall that he had even submitted an outline...
  14. Zoners names in adverts.

    It looks like Mcdonald's have kidnapped our very own Ken and added him to their menu, that should keep the kids from starving for a year or so..:stunned: I wonder how many other adds out there contain references to Zoners?

    A Big Cheer For Little Clubs

    Bit of a new one this, it's for the Irish Examiner's football supplement, currently rolling off the presses as I type. Bit more wordy than the usual fare and with more Anglo-centric references. Anyway, give it a go and let me know what you think, it helps to have feedback with new stuff... If...

    Tenant Liability Insurance

    Just about to get first flat with the missus, and put deposit down etc. Getting all the references and so on together and one of the conditions is that we have Tenant Liability Insurance. Just wondered if anyone could shed any light on this, tried google and not had great joy! Is it likely to...
  17. ShrimperZone Accounts

    Seen a few references on here recently to ShrimperZone accounts. What are these? Are they available only to the select few? When you close them can you convert your rep into cash?
  18. Uncle Leo

    Front page updated...

    ...with Baileytheblue's season review. You'll be glad to see there are no references to masturbation anywhere in the article. Unless there is a particularly good double entendre that I have missed. If you'd like to write something for the site - especially during the quieter summer months -...
  19. OldBlueLady

    The Brits

    Surprised not to have seen any references to it anywhere or was everyone watching football elsewhere? FWIW, my opinion was that a certain lady tried to hijack the whole proceedings and turn it from a family affair into a one woman show and failed miserably. And what was with her face? She...
