    Do the youth of today have the same passion for SUFC

    Maybe I am getting old, well I am, but it seems to me the youth of today do not have the same passion for our club as us oldies do and The Zone ...I guess times have changed and there is a new world out there with social media filling up every crevice in peoples lives. There is no guessing...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 1-0 Reading U21

    :tumbleweed: In the absence of Manor15 :spread: and that fella from Doncaster, who is frankly slacking, let's be honest, I thought I'd get the ball rolling. I didn't go, but I know someone who did, so let's hear it. Was it as dire as it sounded?
  5. The Big Dady


    Is the Zone protected from the latest ransomware called "WannaCry" that attacks Windows operating systems and infecting them around the world? Serious question, as I do not want to loose my Shrimpers football fix. Is this Pandemic which has now spread to over 100 countries, is it that...

  9. Sad News. Another Great Shrimper gone.

    I am very sad to tell you that we lost another long term Shrimper yesterday. His name was Tony Livermore from Kent Avenue Leigh. He somehow got the nickname weasel. Tony started watching Southend in the late Sixties. Tony was a great guy, quite harmless. Fit as a fiddle as a teenager, but the...

    SUFC First Team Squad Photograph

    The centre spread of the Echo today has the full technicolour photograph of this year's 1st team squad. It looks pretty recent as everyone is in it including O'Neill. Highlights for me are the haircuts, some of which are truly monstrous and will probably go down as the best in bad hair taste...
