  1. Fisty cuffs in the South Upper

    Saw some very unpleasant scenes in the south upper at the end of the game. Words were exchanged, a flat cap knocked off and some punches thrown. Don’t expect to see this on a Saturday afternoon. Someone must take action!

  3. Does Uncle Ron know?

    Rumour has it that PB has thrown tantrums that have seen the back of several key players over 2 or 3 seasons, and that critical decisions about starting line-up and substitutions have sometimes not been dispassionate but rather a reflection on PB's relationship at the time with individual squad...

    Conservative Leadership Contest

    Gove has just thrown his hat in the ring - doesn't believe BoJo is the man for the job. Never saw that coming.

    Piotr Malarczyk - Will he get a game

    Piotr Malarczyk has been signed until the end of the season, which is now only 6 games away. I read in the match day programme that he wanted to see what we were about before he agreed to play for us but what is the point in signing someone that has to see us play before he decides if he wants...

    Abuse on the streets

    I do a lot of cycling and it has occurred to me that I get a lot of abuse whilst out and about. Recent examples: Car passenger shouting the C word at me on Southend Seafront Half a can of Lager thrown from a car on Canvey. Drunken tattooed lout jumping in front of me and making dog barking...

    Players best bits

    So now the season is over and we have been promoted, let's have peoples views on what sticks out for them for different players throughout the season. I'll start with with Prosser's last ditch tackle against Luton at home. He had come on as a sub when Coker got sent off and he was thrown in at...
  9. Gerrard set to retire?

    Hereford United

    Hereford have this afternoon been thrown out of the Football Conference. Terrible shame, I have been to Edgar Street on a couple of occasions and it was a very friendly and welcoming football club. Lets hope they can find a league to play in and work their way back up to the Football League.

    BOXING: Weeknds Results

    Marcos Maidan Bt Broner by UD Boy was I happy to see this result come in. Big mouthed, self proclaimed heir to Mayweather's thrown sent crashing back down to earth by Maidana. Broner wasn't just beaten, he was crushed, rocked in the first and down in the second, and bar a couple of rounds in the...
  12. BOXING: Khan vs Mayweather

    From what I've heard (as I said on another thread) this fight is apparently signed, and they're due to announce it soon, so I thought i'd create this for the build-up to the fight next May. So how do people see this going? Anyone give Khan a chance at all? I'm saying Mayweather wins by...

    Just heard that apparently Paul Smith has thrown his toys out his pram again cos Bentley been picked over him, and PB is considering putting Bentley as no.1 with Ted Smith/Luke Chambers as no.2 and shipping Paul Smith out.
  16. There's plenty of room if any of you wish to join me.

    It’s another time in Southend United’s history where there are events occurring off the pitch. Inevitably, Shrimperzone is feeling the full heat of fans’ opinions and their many vents. I don’t often post on here, and when I do, I only seem to do it when I believe a point which is being made is...
  17. Its not just injuries, suspensions...

    ...and Sturrock's "Tic-Tacs" that has F**ked Southend this year, but also the decision to not have any reserve team football. This year has proved, IMO, how important reserve team football is. Keeping "fringe" players, players out suspended, and players coming back from injury, vital match time...

    Time to spice it up?

    Hopefully we will sign a quality holding midfielder this week. . . but if we dont, maybe the answer is already in our squad? Last night it was blatantly obvious we were again trying to put square pegs into round holes... and the holes in the midfield were massive! Phillips is a quality defender...
