    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 1-1 Bristol Rovers

    Would have taken that at the start of the afternoon. Yet another set piece conceded which is worrying and we really didn't threaten going forwards so had a bit of luck to get the penalty and Cox did well to convert. Tactics frustrating, Brown's decisions were a little questionable for me, the...
  2. Close Season Speculation Rules

    Not the first time I have posted this, but as this is our first transition to a higher division since 2005-6 perhaps you will forgive me reminding you of the Rules of Engagement: I love this time of year, it's always the same: 1. Random names are posted on SZ with the assurance that "inside...
  3. Have some respect

    I was in the so called family area near the corner flag of the main stand last night. It saddens me to have to report that yet again some individuals have embarrassed our club once again. Five or six men decided to stand half way down the gang way and block the view of some families with...
  4. UKIP up to shenanigans...

    So a guy took this poster, and he decides to research all of the claims and polices with evidence: Normal response would be for a political party to say thanks to someone for making their proposed policies clear and public. However UKIPs reaction (either formally or via a supporter) is to...

    Pre match curries?

    For a while, when we go away, me and my mates tend to have a pre game curry somewhere. We always threaten to write about it and now we have... http://aroundthegroundsin80curries.blogspot.co.uk/ We will be adding to this with past experiences as well. It would be good in the future to see...

  11. Xavi Takes Centre Stage in Football Spectacle

    When two teams of the highest calibre collide, it wouldn’t be beyond the realms of possibility that they negate each other and the feature becomes something of an anti-climax. Not when Arsene Wenger and Pep Guardiola are around. No. This was special. Barcelona flew out of the traps as if to...

    Leeds Live The Dream

    DID LEEDS GET LUCKY? Absolutely not. This was a fully deserved win by a team who paid for their victory in blood and in sweat and in tears. Leeds United may have spent the last two and a half years in the third flight of English football, but if this result is anything to go by, they're on...
  13. Aren't we forgetting something here?

    If Ron Martin can organise the debts to be paid off, that will be terrific news but only a start. What is the position on that, by the way? Is there any more news to confirm whether HMRC are going to be paid and if so then how? What are the terms of the finance underpinning the payments? But...

  15. The Midfield Balance

    Last week, I posted this after the Brighton game. http://www.shrimperzone.com/vb/showpost.php?p=1027163&postcount=55 Now more than ever, after two dismal losses against run of the mill teams where we've created nothing, it's been made quite evident that the midfield we operate doesn't work...

    Another Rebel Twenty20 League?

    It seems as if there may be another unsanctioned Twenty20 competition being put together, this time in New York. The ICC have released a statement warning Cricketers not to take part, or risk sanctions such as those who appeared in the original rebel league, the Indian Cricket League. This...

    What would you do?

    Serious question, What would you do, if a member of your circle of friends is lying to you? I'll use an imaginary scenario for you all. Imagine you are good friends with a number of people, for this story, we'll call them, imaginary names, like Bambi, MrB, Scrounger, Chadded (apparantly, this...

    Hiddink's Hairdryer

    Juventus 2-2 Chelsea (2-3 agg) (Iaquinta 19) (Essien 45+1) (Del Piero 74) (Drogba 83) Guus Hiddink was hired to bring some tactical sophistication to an underwhelming team, but according to Ray Wilkins, it was an old-fashioned half-time hairdryer that carried Chelsea to the last eight of the...
