  1. Convert, or Always a Shrimper?

    Simple choice really. Supporting another club as a kid counts as conversion, BTW. Remember this is an anonymous poll if you are considering choices 4 or 5. Feel free to elaborate. Unlike OS, I don't mind people posting on my polls..

    SUFC v Yeovil

    A mate of mine has told me that because he couldn't get tickets for any of the home sections he has bought some for the away end. With so much depending upon the outcome of this game for both teams emotions are bound to run high during the game. I hope he, his mates and any others who may...

    I was suprememly confident about todays match until I passed a sign near Cowley, about 2 miles from the ground. It said "LDV - Maxus". A bad omen, I thought. Still, I took my seat in one of the strangest settings I have ever been in (only 3 sides and an open end that gives the...

    Few points

    After arriving late to the game (again!) we missed the first five minutes but not, it seemed from the atmosphere, a great deal. The game was trudging along with a few half chances before Wayne Gray picked up a tidy crossed pass from Eastwood and superbly opened up space before lashing the...

    It's difficult to know exactly where to start. Was the truly appalling refereeing decision that cost us a clear penalty to blame for us dropping 2 points at the Hall? Or was it Bentleys double miss in the last few minutes followed by Pettefers air shot? Or was it the fact that we were...
  6. Nearly Two Points Dropped

    Failure to convert chances nearly cost us in this play-off challenging game, with the Shrimpers having about 5 real-good opportunities with which to take the lead. Early on it could be seen that Darlo were going to play hoof ball all game, but instead away for the podgy Wingehard as opposed to...

    Griemink 7 - secure as ever, my only criticism would be that he and Eagle seemed to lack an understanding at the back, hopefully this will improve as they get use to playing alongside each other Hunt 7 - quietish game, but did everything asked of him Wilson 7 - one of his better games, a...

  10. ShrimperZone Prediction League 04/05

    ** Confession Time : My PC crashed and lost all the specific data for this match. Those who gained extra bonus points for spot-on scoreline, attendance, and time of first goal are OK but everyone else's data was lost. Therefore the only fair thing to do was award everyone who predicted for this...

    "It's a good job they're rubbish"

    That was the cry from someone behind me after Grimsby fluffed another chance, and how true it was. Pathetic sums up last nights performance from us. It showed that Tilly is kidding himself if he thinks he doesn't need to strengthen certain areas to get us promoted. Hunt got showed up...

    I blame the Internet...

    We are not unique. Up and down the country, the majority of clubs have a message board like this one, populated by some who wish to have a reasoned sensible debate about football, some who are like manic depressives who believe their club is relagation bound when they lose and promotion bound...

    West Ham kicked off and set a fantastic pace.  In the first minute Harewood was set loose in the box and bought a fine save from Bartman.  It was about 3 minutes before we touched the ball and to be fair the movement from the opposition pulled us all over the pitch.  We were however to have a...
