  2. helloooo

    Hey all, newbie here (obviously) Who am I? A bit about myself, I live in Australia, unfortunately quite a fair distance from Roots Hall. Or any League two ground for that matter so I cant claim to have actually seen a Southend match live. I have a shockingly poor knowledge of football in...

    Afternoon zones, Me and the missus are currently looking at getting some new PVC doors for our humble abode. Can anyone recommend any good local companies or tradesmen in the southend/hockley/rayleigh area? Cheers!
  7. Zonal marking ...

    Zonal marking backfires so often I really can't see why anyone entertains the idea. With zonal marking, rather than stick to a player, you guard a certain zone. The six-yard box, when defending a corner, comprises of three or four zones in which defenders will position themselves. If the ball...

  9. What does Bale know ?

    There has been a lot of angst over the last few weeks at our poor results, and lots of soul searching as to the reasons why. Obviously Laird's absence is a major factor but what other club could lose their two (very talented) top scorers and hope to prosper, without replacing them, or even one...

  11. Reasons to be cheerful...

    ...one, two, three. !) The team is playing a much more entertaining style of football this season. 2) No sign of the Tax/axe man. 3) the embargo has been lifted. Amid the gloom and doom that so often swirls around RH, at least in the mind of the supporters, there are many things to be glad...

    Tweet That, Darren

    Have you ever Twittered? I have to confess that, like European federalism, gardening and 'Jedward', I always thought it was something for other people to worry about. Twitter, I found out this week, is a chance to spurt 140 characters of whatever you're doing at the world, or at least those...
  18. Ronnie Biggs

    What are the Zones thoughts on this? Jack Straw says Biggs is wholly unrepentant and will not grant parole to a very sick, elderly man who is obviously now no threat to anyone. Is it sour grapes on behalf of the establishment or should he be made to stay inside until his final breath?
