    Question Bristol Rovers confirm take over and not us, why?

    Bristol Rovers confirm takeover and not us, why? I see that Bristol Rovers have been taken over by a Jordanian billionaire and he wants to get the stadium under way. They did have planning permission in place I believe, so that may be the attraction for said businessman. Maybe we would be as...
  2. Ebou Adams-a missed opportunity?

    This young "box-to-box midfielder" has just moved from Dartford to Norwich City for a fee. Now I am not suggesting for one minute that in a straight fight we have more attraction than City. But there are, as we all know, some gems out there. The Thames basin is a fertile ground for talent. Once...

    What is it about not scoring goals?

    I have to be honest here, I rarely go to any games these days..due to the fact of boredom mostly. I always thought football was about scoring goals not being the best at conceding less.. Is that not what entertains people? For the PB era we seem to be quite good at defensive but have hardly...

    England Not the Big Attraction?

    I have been watching the sky sports transfer centre and BBC sport like a hawk. Reading rumours and all the transfer news. But one thing is starting to show. England and the Premier League is slowly becoming less of an attraction for big players. Now my question is why? Falcao has chosen to...

    The greatest asset

    Seeing how the ultimate sexual combo thread is taking shape I wanted to establish what the ultimate bloke attraction is. I was mortified when I did a sweep with mates the other day and arse beat tits 7-1. So, I put it to you Shrimperzone with the added inclusion of legs... What is the greatest...

    How our Parents/Grandparents coped with the War.

    Here we are it’s DoDtS’s summer saga. Totally non football related, but my attempt to understand how and what our forebears had to endure through the war in a series of extracts from the Southend Standards of the times. Not everybody’s cup of tea but if your not interested then don’t read it...

    Trio of ex-Shrimpers at Hornchurch

    On Saturday I went ot Lewes vs Hornchurch as a mate of mine is a Urchins fan and Lewes is only 15 mins away. Half the attraction what that there was a selection of ex Shrimpers to watch - Johnny Hunt, Dave McSweeney and Tommy Black. All three were on the bench. Hunt came on and scored a 25...
  10. 'Happy Hour'? last night

    Really don't want to put a downer on last night but the Club really needs to get its act together on the promotions side. I thought the £1 a pint idea was a good one and the timings right, £1 a pint 6-6:45 which then means you've got a crowd in with an hour to go before kick off who will then...

    Scrap the Monarchy - Solve the financial crisis ?

    Seeing that the Queen has scrapped the annual staff party to graciously save the nation 50k (why can't she use her own savings) led me to think. I'm a confirmed anti-royalist so my arguments would probably not be balanced. I've never seen the attraction or the proven benefit to the country...

    Question Why did you start smoking?

    Following on from Hil's giving up smoking thread, it got me thinking, what made people start smoking in the first place? I've tried it, but never, ever seen the attraction, I just don't get it.

    Striker in The Sun

    Apart from the obvious attraction of Page 3, the only reason I look at the Sun is to see the latest adventures of Nick Jarvis and Warbury Warriors, however it seems to have disappeared recently. Any ideas what has happened to it?

    It all started normally. Flat battery in South Woodham Ferrers, clutch gone on an VW Camper in Westcliff another flat battery at Southend Hospital. All run of the mill stuff. Then I got a call for an Ford Scorpio in Pitsea with a wheel bearing gone and needing recovery to Great Yarmouth. That'll...
