    PlayOff Finals NOT at Wembley?

    I didn't realise till today that should we reach the play off finals they are likely NOT to be played at Wembley and probably at Old Trafford, as Wembley is double booked...
  2. Westcliff Shrimper


    Need a bit of clarification - apologies all, but haven't been to a game this season, so a bit out of the loop. At the moment, I believe we have the following centre backs signed to the first team squad: Graham Coughlan - also reserve team coach Chris Barker - ex-Plymouth, who can also play...

    Memory Lane Eddie Firmani v Eddie Clayton 1:5 - poll now added

    As voting draws to a close in McAlinden v McCrory, it's time to introduce our next tie which is one of the most eagerly anticipated clashes of the round, for me at least, as the two Eddies battle it out. As usual, I'll give you a chance to post up your memories, and before I add the poll.

    Football League Team of the Week

    Congratulations to Josh Simpson and Anthony Grant for being our first players to make it onto the FL Team of the Week this season - slightly more kudos than the NotW or Sunday Mirror's I think! :clap: http://www.football-league.co.uk/staticFiles/a5/55/0,,10794~152997,00.pdf

    The Blues or The Shrimpers?

    I know that this has been discussed before, but with the current positive vibes emenating from RH, is it time to consider moving back to "The Shrimpers" rather than the rather generic "The Blues"? I don't follow "The Blues", I follow "The Shrimpers". The club's nickname should relate to its...

    A little competition

    Ok we have added something new to the Zone today..it is not prominent but the first person to find it and get it right wins a Zone mug and coaster set.....God we are so generous to you lot.:smiles:
  11. Sturrock on Simpson.....

    Anyone else encouraged by Sturrock saying Simpson should be able to get us 10 goals this season? To get 10 you'd think he'd be talking about the whole campaign.....Luggy must therefore be pretty confident about signing him in January. :clap:
  12. Northampton - Who's going?

    After the great away performance at Bradford, who's going on Saturday? Stockport Shrimpers will be there.

    How far can blues go this season?

    I know its relatively early days and we havent seen too much of our new side , but i got to thinking that in order for us to have a shout at the end of the season we just have to be in a position were there are not 7 teams that are better than us. I think this is perfectly doable. Providing...

    Blair Sturrock

    Fellow Posters, Got to say I thought he was excellent saturday. I cant help but think if he wasnt the managers son he would get a lot more praise. I thought he held the ball up so well, showed some really intelligent touches to bring others in and did the dirty job upfront on his own well. I...
