    Your Non-football sporting hero?

    We were discussing at work our sporting heroes and it was pretty much all footballers and from the clubs we support, which was a bit boring and predictable. So then we changed it to "non-football" and it was really quite interesting. So lets hear your non-football sporting heroes and the reason...

We have to make some costly changes over the next 12 months as we have to change format and will no longer be with Vbulletin after so many years as they no longer offer security or help with us...They moved on to vB5 which does not...

    Free MK Dons tickets

    If you are fortunate to be season ticket holder then you will also have had 3 free guest passes to be used in home games of choice. However there is small print, in that the final game, (Bris R) is NOT included in the deal: so MK is the LAST opportunity to avail yourself of this ST bonus. It is...

  8. Deep Regret

    It is with deep regret that, after 14 years, I am stepping down from my involvement in running the Zone. I have suffered from health problems for the last 6 years, culminating in a total relapse that means I cannot function to the high standards I set myself. My support for Southend United and...

  10. Supershrimper


    Noticed on Saturday he headed straight down the tunnel at the final whistle, and I noticed it again last night at Bury. Is he starting to get irritated by fans that criticise him when he is going round after the final whistle thanking them for their support. At Bury yesterday there was one...

    Zone Update We keep on rocking

    We have lived for 17 years now as one collective ShrimperZone....We have seen many sites (God bless them) trying to support SUFC as we do on The Zone, We have faced them all off, or rather you have, to make this site one of the best outside the Prem.. Most of those Prem sites are either owned...

  13. Get Behind All the Players

    I have read various threads and posts regarding "get rid of this one" , "he is over the hill", "too old" or "not good enough" I feel it is time to get behind ALL the players from now on and raise the mood ----- let our new bossman decide who stays and who goes. I am sure if we support all the...

    Anton Ferdinand

    Rare for me to start a thread but I am genuinely curious to hear other fans opinions. It seems most people would agree that he has had a shocker of a season and he seems well past it. My Question is, what are other fans opinion of the man constantly on twitter talking about West Ham nearly...
  15. Southend United vs Fleetwood Town

    It has been a disappointing last few days with plenty of transfer talk and no action, club meetings with the Chairman trying to sort out problems and many posts wanting the manager out. For the next few hours we need to get behind the team, whether you agree with selection, tactics etc to...

    Which do you dislike more? Brown or league 2?

    I have long since been saying that the management of the club needs changing. This has now been done to death, but what is clear is that Ron is sticking by his man. How this will pan out I'm not sure, but I would like to see some new faces and a change in fortunes. What worries me more than...

    Catchment and support

    Sorry if this has been posted before but i chanced across a map of catchment areas by club, which shows some interesting stats, for example we have (according to this report) a larger catchment than Manure, Wham and Chelsea. 600k potential plus fans on our doorstep... where were they last...
  20. Question Other clubs fans forums

    Whilst I have only been to most home games and sporadic more local away games last season and this season, I like to think I possess at least the same knowledge and experience as others on the forum. A reasonably long family history of playing at professional level has enabled many hours of...
