  2. Article needed - someone who travelled away regularly 1996-1998 and now

    Hi all, I'm trying to fill the latest issue of AAS (deadline Sunday, eek) and I had an idea for an article this afternoon which I'll need someone else to write. I'd love to get a piece from someone who travelled away on a regular basis during the two seasons 1996-1998. During this period, we...

    Hello, fellow football fans! I am here as part of my research into a new project, looking at ways to help supporters reduce the cost off attending modern day football. Would you mind taking a moment to complete the attached simple survey. We are looking at potential ways to help football...

    A Shrimper till I die!

    Am still on my endless travels (Malta for now) but will always be Southend! Priceless memories, great people, laughs, lots of miles, the odd injury, a few wins, a few more draws and lots of defeats! Ha ha. Am loving seeing Southend United top of the league - still as proud as ever. C'Mon You...
  6. Shrimpers fans, who travels by train?

    So bascially I am a massive Southend Utd fan and a big ShrimperZone reader (very rarely post, more of an observer). I travel to work by train and I hate it so much I created the website www.trainrage.com last October (not sure about posting links, I'm sure it will be removed if it's against the...
  7. Suffolk Shrimper In Dorset

    Question Why don't Sammy and Elvis travel?

    Just happened to click on the Col Ewe half-time vid from a couple of seasons back. Bar trips to Ewe I cannot recall other occasions when our mascots have been at away games, (reckon they are just part-timers). We sometimes see it with other clubs at Roots and personally I think it always adds...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Crewe Alexandra

    Thought I would start this one early, as there is not much else to talk about at the moment! What is your starting XI? What will the score be? Will the Blue Monday deal, boost the attendance? Will Corr & Sturrock be fit? Is this Timlin's last game before going back to Swindon? Here...
  10. Ref Watch ........ Hereford away

    Well, there can't be a team in the land we have a better recent record against than Hereford. Seven straight League wins, the last six (including three away matches) without conceding a goal. Can the shambolic affairs of the summer mean that we can no longer rely on beating even Hereford...

  12. The Big Shrimp

    Grottiest Town/City

    Having just completed a 800+ miles trip up & around the north, I was astounded how much of a depressed dump Middlesborough is. Both my partner & I thought this is the worst place we've seen in our travels around the country. Consider that I've been to places like Hartlepool, Manchester, Leeds...

    3 year ban for doing the ****** sign to the colchester fans

    Just heard back from my mate who was at court today and he as recieved a 3 year home and away ban for doing the ****** sign. Its a ****ing joke i bet there is not one club or police liason team in the whole country that will push for a fan who travels from Kent every game to be banned for doing...
  14. Robinho: The £32.5m Advert

    When Manchester City pipped Chelsea to the signing of Robinho 18 months ago, it was dubbed as the transfer that would make the whole world take notice. It has, we’ve now noticed just how petulant a footballer can possibly be. The Brazilian forward come winger come child has had what can only be...

    A Stirring Match - A Warcry for Tomorrow.

    Col Ewe tomorrow and I'm sure we don't need a WarCry but sometimes it's worth remembering who and what we are. We are Southenders, Southend United supporters with a proud history and love for our town and our club, not dependent on success (unlike our deluded premiership counterparts) but we...
