    Web site down - 2 suspects identified

    The loss of the Shrimperzone site has been put down to 2 main suspects. Either a group of disgruntled Blackburn Rovers computer hackers or North Korean special agents looking to gain revenge for the United Kingdom's support of increased sanctions. My money's on The Glorious Leader ...

    YouTube - Full screen.

    Whenever I click on a YouTube vid on the Zone I can never make it full screen. I've tried in IE, FireFox and Chrome and its always the same. I get the message 'Your browser does not support full screen. Is this peculiar to SZ or am I the only one that gets it?

    ShrimperZone FC

    Brown on Ranger

    There's an interesting article in the Echo today on PB's views on Nile Ranger and what the future may hold. I've copied the main quotes from Chris Phillips twitter page below. Maybe he has run out of patience? or maybe he wants Nile to get the message? Brown: “When Nile comes out of...

    Premship truths or rabble rousing

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/39874533 Accers Chairman has a valid point AND the response is both true (in financial support terms) and bullying. FWIW I don't have anything to do with Prem anymore; I won't go to their games, watch MofD, Sky etc as all that they are doing is enriching...
  8. The Eternal Optimist

    It's my fault I said Millwall away would haunt us!

    How annoying things you say in jest have an annoying habit of biting you on the arse. I said to my mate on the way to the game that the premiershite quality ref would bottle it in front of the hostile home support. Not only did he send Atkinson off for a challenge that he only gave a yellow a...
  9. Let's all support a Colu fan

    https://www.gofundme.com/alfiesvision/thankyou?d=&step=share# I am sure a lot of you will remember last season's home game against the scum when colu fan Tom Leggett ran from Colchester to Southend to raise funds for his young son who suffers from a rare disease well today he us running from...

    On yer 'ead 'arry!

    Goals such as our two last night at Oxford could be things of the past if this report gains enough support in the game. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-38971750 I personally couldn't imagine the game without head contact to the ball, but I can also see the risks the report is highlighting. A...

    Embarrassing post on Facebook Re our captain at Millwall

    The fact that a post explaining how the captain of Southend United showed his support for WHU at Millwall and the fact that it is a West Ham post "liked" by Shrimpers leaves me aghast. Add to that comments left by Southend United fans glorifying in singing "Millwall run from West...
  12. The Big Dady


    What an unusual statement Mark Warburton says he has not stood down as Rangers manager, despite a club statement that they have accepted the resignation of him and his staff. Rangers announced on Twitter that Warburton, assistant David Weir and head of recruitment, Frank McParland were leaving...

    French presidential election 2017

    The job of writing a long article to explain the race to l'elysée up to now had prevented me from starting a thread. Happily, this article from the Independent does most of it for me. I would agree with the majority of what is written (apart from liking Le Pen to Clinton!)......thank God we...
  14. For Those Not Going to Fleetwood

    An offer from the Chairman of Great Wakering Rovers for any fans not going oop North on Saturday. "Any @SUFC_fans @shrimperstrust cant go to Fleetwood on Sat - pop to @GWRovers. Wear your SUFC shirt and get in for £5 - We want your support"

    Millwall FC - CPO on The Den

    I am surprised no-one has brought this up as yet, our former CEO has inherited one almighty challenge as the new CEO at Millwall FC, and was on Talk Sport yesterday discussing it and galvanising support - which has been pretty forthcoming from the football world in general. Basically, Lewisham...

    Would championship football bring forward the stadium build?

    It's obviously a very big ask of this team to gain championship football, but would championship football affect the build of the new stadium. It would certainly highlight a greater need to house bigger support. It would definately put us in a greater shop window to seek additional investment...
  18. Meaningless Stat

    What is it with this obsession by the media of a manager's "win percentage"? Don't they realise that this figure only shows part of the story. An example (if indeed we should need one):- Manager A. 20 games as manager, Won 10 Lost 10. Win % 50%. Manager B. 20 games as manager, Won 8 Drawn 8...
  19. Millwall vs Southend

    Aside from the result, we can all surely agree how good our away fans were last night. I know some people grumble about the home support, but our away support is pure class imo - couldn't hear a thing from the Millwall also. Your opinions on Home and Away support?

    Maidstone v Macclesfield

    Maidstone v Macclesfield Went to this game on Saturday with one of my staff. Nice stadium, good clubhouse, decent support. Three ex-shrimpers in the squads: Macclesfield: Jack Sampson - well he's found his level. Won every header, got stuck in, but rubbish on the ground, can't control the ball...
