    Season preview for GJ Sports Blog

    My name was put forward, very kindly, by our good friend Kent Shrimper - not normally one to do this sort of thing, but I thought some of you might be interested to read my thoughts on the season ahead. The idea was to have a preview from each of the clubs in the EFL on the blog...

  6. Bentleys performance yesterday.

    Here's a quick write up I did on Bentley's performance yesterday. https://thisonesakeeperblog.wordpress.com/2016/04/16/713/ Although he has not necessarily been at his best for the whole season I still believe without some of his performances we could be further down the table than we are...

    Sort of New

    Hey everyone. My name is Andrew and I joined Shrimperzone back in 2013 but sort of forgot about it as I was busy with Uni work etc. Anyway, I have been supporting Southend since the age of 6 (I'm now 22) and sit with my parents and friends in the East Stand Yellow. Also, I have a blog where I...
  10. Uncle Leo


    More in hope than expectation here but worth a try given the success we've had with Panini swapping over the years... Does anyone here know any girls (yes, there could be some boys, but let's face it, unlikely) who are collecting the 'My Sister My Hero' frozen stickers? If so, drop me a DM, my...

  12. Alternative match report: Southend v. Wycombe

    Hello Shrimpers! I'm The Luxury Fan, and I write mildly bizarre lower-league match reports. I was at Wembley yesterday, and here's my write up of the play-off final: https://theluxuryfan.wordpress.com/2015/05/24/not-with-a-bang-but-a-shrimper/. Congratulations on promotion, and what a game...

  15. Memory Lane Old Photos of Southend United.

    As I can only relive my time following Southend in my head, thank God this internet thingy came along and I can look up old videos and Photo's. I have found some great stuff and thought it would be nice to put some on here. I bought the DVD ''The Team We Call United'' two weeks ago and really...

    Labour looking strong?

    My old colleagues at the Magic Sign have priced up loads more constituencies for next year's general election. Makes good reading for Labour supporters... http://politicalbookie.wordpress.com/2014/07/08/the-seven-seats-labour-are-set-to-gain-in-the-west-midlands/ Then follow links below for...
  17. Looking back and forwards

    Quite impressed with Phils interview before going to Spain - at the least physical preparation of the squad has improved noticably under him.... perhaps a slight short coming of Sir Steves.... Sir Steve pops into my mind every time the manager of Brasil, Scolari, show up on the box - remember...
