    Zone Update Our new site

    Hi all, just keeping you all in the loop. You have seen me drumming on about us having to move sites long enough. Before the new season starts we will have a new site, no longer a vBulletin site but an upgraded new one to Xenforo who are based in the UK and are lead by a guy who built vB a long...

    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...

    Eurovision 2018

    I think the bookies have the UK entry at 200/1 and sadly this contest is currently being inflicted on me by virtue of the fact that I'm in the lounge. Assuming we will again get hammered by the East European cliques I do wonder whether there should be an award for the most commonly used language...

  5. New Zealand vs England (Test series)

    Well that wasn't really the start we were after.

    Official Match Thread Scunthorpe United v Southend United

    It is the day before Christmas Eve, and before Santa's big day we have our final away game of 2017 which is a long trip up north against Scunthorpe United at Glanford Park. First a bit of good news Oxley passes a late fitness test and plays, Ferdinand returns to the starting lineup, but Ranger...
  7. Sackable offence surely...1 up front....

    .....when you badly need the points to give hope for the rest of the season, and to keep you in a job. Oh no....not our Phil.....lets not test there keeper when we are playing at home. Ron you ain't got the balls to sack the idiot in charge after last week so this week Phil confirms it for...

    Alan Moody Update

    Dear All, As so many of you gave so generously to the Moody Blues campaign in August (total raised was over £11,500 in the end) I thought you'd like a quick update on Alan as I've just received a card from him. The big news is that, after a number of lessons, he has just passed his test for a...

    2017 Ashes

    Now that the cricketing summer for Test's has been put to bed for another year it seems about the right time (although 3 CC matches still to play) to ponder who should be on the plane Down Under at the end of 2017. It will be quite interesting to find out who would get into people's squads (I...

    Interesting site.....http://www.speedypassword.com/articles/how-secure-is-my-password-test-your-password/ Bung your SZ password in and it'll tell you how quick a hacker could get into your account and start spreading the rumour that you're in love with Drewe Broughton.... 16 minutes here...

    Promotion & Relegation Teams for 2017/18 Season

    Simple enough - name the teams that you think will get promoted automatically (and play-offs if you wish) and the teams that you think will be relegated. Reasons why you have made your selection would be nice. :smile: Just putting Southend as Champions isn't really helping the discussion...
  12. At Training Today.

    I went to training quite looking forward to seeing Michael Kightly really. Unfortunately I got called away and only stayed about half an hour. The players weren't training on the pitch right in front of the car park, but much further down. So couldn't see as well as usual. Again confirmed that...

    What else do we need?

    Ok so we have managed to keep Lenny, which is equally as important to signing hendrie and kightly. We are led to believe that michael turner will be signing a contract soon. We have also invested heavily in youth with around 6 youth players getting pro deals. I hope they can get some game...

    Ireland and Afghanistan now full ICC members

    Which means they have both been granted Test status. Good news. Best of luck to both of them, apart from when they are playing England! I assume Ireland's Test matches will be part of a 'British Isles Tour' whenever teams are coming over to play us. Would Afghanistan play at home, or in the...
  15. 2017: England V South Africa & West Indies

    I thought we may as well get this thread underway, what with the upcoming tours over the summer from South Africa & the West Indies from now until the end of September, and our thoughts and opinions for who should make the grade for the up-coming ashes series. I will start with tonight's easy...

    SUFC Last Man Standing 2016/17

    Not a lot going on at the moment and obviously we have nothing better to do with our lives and summers than sit on ShrimperZone waiting for Mork to kick off about the new kit or whether or not our pre-season opponents are from Essex or not. Time to bring back an SZ classic. The rules, copied...

    Picking a Constituency

    Are there any rules about who can stand where other than paying your deposit? I know that people can be parachuted into constituencies to win safe seats, but it seems odd that say Paul Nuttal can contest Stoke and now Boston within in a few months. Are there any rules about living in the area...

    So, where will we end up this season?

    We have seven games of the FL1 season left and we appear to be in very reasonable form, so maybe its time to test the optimism/cynicism barometer on here. simple really, just vote for where you think we will finish pre play-off games. I've left the poll open for 10 days to take account of the...

    Pre-Match Thread Oxford United vs Southend United

    A disappointing result but only just under 54 hours to the next one now. PB claimed we would appeal Atkinson's red card, but assuming that he won't be available, I'd say bring McGlashan in as the only change. Smith, Demetriou, Thompson, Ferdinand, Coker, McGlashan, Leonard, Wordsworth, Timlin...

    Popularity Contest

    This board has been running for years, as we know by the sheer fact that Napster continues to dig posts out from almost before Fossetts Farm ever first got mentioned. In that time some users have clocked up a wealth of posts. In my opinion, they have all added plenty of value over the years for...
