    Games or goals you wished were on video but sadly aren't.

    So many great games over the years. Sadly not many great games or goals available to watch. Which games or goals would you love to see again. Who knows, maybe some of them will surface with help from fellow zoners. I'd love to see highlights of our promotion game at Swanseas liberty stadium.
  2. The Big Dady


    What an unusual statement Mark Warburton says he has not stood down as Rangers manager, despite a club statement that they have accepted the resignation of him and his staff. Rangers announced on Twitter that Warburton, assistant David Weir and head of recruitment, Frank McParland were leaving...
  3. Players You Wished had left the club

    In light of the last couple of days with some players declaring that they want out of the club, I thought it might be a bit of fun to discuss the players that we wish had left the club but who for whatever reason either outstayed their welcome or were given contract extensions. I'll start...

    Away game to forget

    Is there an away game which you wished you hadn't gone to, or one that you can't believe that you actually went to the bother of going to? For me I can't believe that I went to Burnley on 31st December 1994 in the Peter Taylor era and it was not a classic season, it had started with a 3-1...

    2015 seat by seat

    Ladbrokes have priced up every seat in the 2015 general election. In turn, someone has taken the current favourite for every single seat (if joint favourites, the incumbent gets the nod) to project how things might pan out in May. Obviously, plenty will change between now and then but I thought...

    Best young players in Europe

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/blog/2013/jun/20/european-under-21championships-team-tournament Bet Stuart Pearce wished he'd had some of these guys playing for him. On second thoughts, he probably still would have ****ed up, even with them in the England team.

    Paul Benson gets wish... but not how he wanted

    PAUL Benson achieved a life long dream by scoring at Roots Hall on Tuesday night. But the experienced forward wished it had been for Southend United and not Cheltenham Town. More...

    Question Opposing players you most enjoyed watching

    Is there an opposing player past or present that when they come to play at the home of football, Roots Hall , you actually have looked forward to watching ?. Please try to avoid ex Blues players as sometimes the emotions run too high!!! George Best i guess springs immediately to mind when he...

    Liverpool: bless them

    So one rule for them and one rule for everyone else. What would happen if somebody derided or wished dead Liverpool fans in such a way? http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/19703504

    Broncos Buck Losing Trend With Record Breaking Comeback

    An unbelievable 80 minutes at the Stoop this afternoon. Broncos ahead after 5 minutes then fall to bits. Opponents Salford City Reds hammer in six tries before half time, albeit with only two converted, one of them comically way wide from in front of the posts. Half time, Broncos 6, City Reds...

  13. AGM minutes

    Uncle Albert, boots shining like a cyclists tail light,strode into the foyer of the Palace Hotel. As he did so a smartly dressed youngman hesitantly came forward to greet him. His job was to welcome all the Bluesshareholders as they arrived for the clubs AGM and he’d obviously beenforewarned not...

    Rons new year blog

    BLOG FROM JAN 2008 JUST SHOWS HOW FAR WEV'E FALLEN IN SUCH A SHORT SPACE OF TIME!! The transfer windows favour the Premiership and larger clubs who can target players within this condensed period of opportunity and do not have the same financial constraints as might befall the smaller clubs...

    Multiculturalism in Germany

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/oct/17/angela-merkel-germany-multiculturalism-failures I remember saying to an IE Lecturer who declared to me (back in the early 90's)that Britain was now a multicultural society, that I wished it was, but I didn't think that this was true. It could well be...

    Up for election to the SZ Southend United Hall of Fame is manager Dave Smith. Smith came incredibly close last time, missing out by just 0.26%. Will he fare better at his second attempt? Here's what I wrote last time: ---------------------------------------------------- This poll is really a...

I sat in front of scott on the coach and he was really nice and gave me a bag of sweets not a steak meal. Scott is not happy when he is...
  18. Had a chat with Alex Revell last night......

    ....in Nando's (Brentwood). Key points: * He's doing well at Orient, 3 in 5 games so far. * Still speaks regularly to Granty, Franno and some of the others. * Said he'd have loved to stay but "certain people" made it impossible. * Was disgusted by the way RM ran the club. * Criticised Geoff...
