    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?

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United vs Bristol Rovers

    Last game of the season, it seems like only yesterday that we were getting excited for the start of this one. Where does time go? Anyway, to business. After 3 wins on the trot we entertain Bristol rovers at Roots Hall. We got stuffed 3-0 at their gaff in December so it might be fitting if we...
