    Underperforming Telly !!!

    I realise i'm leaving myself open to the undeniable "wit" of the Shrimper nation here, but nonetheless i have a problem and quite frankly don't really know where to turn I have lost the picture on my tv .. i can still hear it ok so i'm loathe to just bin it and buy another straight off, its not...
  2. 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...
  3. "Players not delivering"

    As I've posted in the 'Betsy' thread too, now the club policy is to dump players that 'are not performing', then who next? The loan window re-opens next week, so expect more departures I would guess? Heres the runners and riders - who next is up to hangman King's trap-door for underperforming...

    Scolari's Not To Blame

    Luis Felipe Scolari may have paid the price for Chelsea's bleak midwinter, but who was really to blame for the club's decline in form? The Brazilian boss may have made mistakes in his short reign at Stamford Bridge, but he was never given the tools he needed to rebuild an ageing squad. It was...
  5. Yorkshire Blue

    Standing at the cross-roads - read this Ron Martin!

    I think the club is currently at a cross roads. We can either spend money and try and buy our way out of possible trouble with expensive short term solutions, or we can struggle on with what we've got, topped up by loan signings and the occasional more expensive signing when the right player...

    There are no flags on cars and no posters in windows.

    There are no flags on cars and no posters in windows. No sweeping advertising campaigns and no collectable badges. Here in the UK, you wouldn't guess that we're just hours away from the start of a major football tournament. Ok, so the nearest that the England team can get to European involvement...

    Everton Down On Their Luck

    There are times in my life when I’m incredibly grateful to my Dad for taking me to see Southend United on my 11th birthday. It was freezing cold, everything smelt of fried onions, someone urinated on my trainers and Huddersfield won 1-0, but somehow it felt so right. It was the start of an...
  9. So at what point would you sack Tilson?

    I've been reading the posts with interest as I am as disappointed with the start to the season mirroring the end to last season,losing. There surely comes a point in any job where you face the prospect of the sack for continually underperforming, so my question for the 'Tilson can do no wrong...
  10. Good Job we have a bad run of form

    Just seen that Norwich have lost there manager, In some ways its a good job that we are off the boil - Tilly has been mentioned in regards to the above postion before - hopefuly as we are underperforming they will stay away!!
  11. Mark 'God' Gower

    This season we are not so ravaged by injuries, touch wood it remains that way, and Tilly has spoke of the competition for places. If this is true, why does he keep playing Gower?. I too believe he is an enormous talent, still with the potential to go much further in the game, but this season he...
