    Question What is the surname of the current Southend United Manager?

    Not a trick question. My friend is trying to register on here, but this question is stopping her from joining. As far as I was aware its Brown (Phil) unless he has walked already (staying in Spain to top up his tan). I've also told her to try Sturrock and Tilson but neither are working?

    The Squad of 1989-90

    Three weeks ago, The Football League Paper featured our 4th Division promotion-winning squad of 1989-90 in their Where Are They Now? feature. The article was based on Bernie Friend's book Red Card Roy, with quotes from the book from Roy, and then the article went on to report where all the...

    Tax avoidance

    Is it time to put tax avoidance in the same category as tax evasion? Personally I think so. "Accountants are often hired as auditors by the same companies they are providing tax advice to." At least it would be a start for the Goverment (if they as are serious as they claim to be about...
  4. Dundee Utd boss Peter Houston brings forward Tannadice exit

    Might as well start a paranoia thread. Dundee United is now without a manager. I'm sure PS now appreciates the lure of the Essex Riviera as appoosed to his first love.

    Question Accounts and the Umbongo - Update!

    So I was thinking last night about the reason that the embargo was in place was that the Accountants would not release the completed Financial Statements until they had received payments (and rightly so, they aren't a charity and they provided a service). Now this got me worried again as it...

    Embargo Talk .. Are We / Aren't We ???

    It is a fact that we are under one hence all the bollocks that we are looking at this player looking at that one, one thing that ****es me of about our club is how they try to hide the facts under the radar. It's simple here, the accountants are apparently waiting to be paid and until they are...
  7. Tour

    A wee birdie told me the tour will be made public very soon,and suntan lotion and sunglasses will be needed. And the two teams we play will be a pleasant surprise, keep the faith.

    David Crown, who I used to pretend to be when playing footy as a young lad, has been my accountant for quite a few years.

    Ryan hall --- tonight is your night

    Ryan Hall , if you are reading this ... tonight is your night. Crewe are petrified of your abilities as were most of the defences in Div 2 this season. You have the skills to tease tantalise + rip apart a really average defence tonight. You are at your best when you make space + attack at...

    Thank you...

    to the wonderful people who stopped (along with a group of scooter boys we virtually blocked the motorway) on the hard shoulder of the M25 near Brentwood and gave me a lift 21 years ago this weekend. After a frantic couple of hours (I missed the minibus to Bury) of pure panic, I was handed a...

    Help Me Work from Home!

    After a number of health issues, it has highlighted that health is my number 1 priority. I have a great job in the City but am sure the stress of it all is not helping my health. I am at a stage of thinking that work away from a desk or working from home would be the way forward. It is...

However I was chatting to my friends about our Ibiza plans...

    Zone Update The Secret of our Success

    Well it's fairly simple really, it is YOU! It is however worth explaining to all where we are now. In the past 2 years we have nearly trebled the amount of members that use the Zone and this has now caused us to face up to the fact our server space is to small.....Recent issues with crashes...

    Well its been a fortnight since Bilel's latest tantrum. Not a lkot has been commented on since. Anyone what the Club intend to do? Or what you suspect they will do?

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Aldersh*t v Southend United-Abandoned at HT

    An eventful day for sure, allegedly some spoon went walkabout in the fast lane on the M25 (not for long i'm sure you appreciate) and the ensuing congestion meant a lovely detour up the M40 to Wycombe, a short hop over to the M4 westbound towards Reading, through Bracknell and onto the M3 back...

    SZ/TZ Player Sponsorship 2011/2012

    All, the new season may be a few months away, but the club are already (!) looking to sell their player sponsorship packages. ShrimperZone/TravelZone has, for the last few seasons, sponsored one of the first team and we're looking to see if people would be interested in clubbing together for...
