    Question "The......."

    A lot of the latin star players seem to have nicknames begining with "The.." (when translated), eg: The Beast (Negredo) The Gunfighter (Suarez) The Little Pea (Hernandez) The Commander (Ronaldo) The Little Chief (Mascherano) etc.... So what "The..." nicknames would you give to our current...

    England Cricket 2013

    A huge year for our boys. NZ and Aus home and away (theme tune please)! How good do you think we will prove to be? I'm massively pleased for Compton getting back to back tons out in NZ but these wickets are as flat as pancakes. Taking nothing away from an International ton - I think the bloke...

    Shrimperzone's Honourable Gentlemen

    Just a bit of fun, it's election time and Shrimperzone has evolved into a national and global beast. The decision has been taken to field a candidate to fight every seat in the country and the opinion polls suggest a landslide for us. We have no elected leader but in anticipation that we will be...

    Darwin Awards 2012 Eighth Place In Detroit, a 41-year-old man got stuck and drowned in two feet of water after squeezing head first through an 18-inch-wide sewer grate to retrieve his car keys. Seventh Place A 49-year-old San Francisco stockbroker, who "totally zoned when he ran"...

    Coughlan postmatch interview:

    Graham Coughlan seemed to allude to the fact that some Southend players dislike playing at Roots Hall. Although he was keen to point out that he doesn't see that as an excuse. I thought the little Roots Hall crowd tonight were extremely restrained in their reactions to what was a gutless...

    Memory Lane Greatest Zone post/thread ever!

    Inspired by Pubey's thread about greatest posts of 2012, just spent some time hunting out some of my favourites from years gone by. Some cracking stuff out there... I'll kick off with a couple of gems... ****les adventures in Leyton (couldn't qoute so follow link!)...
  9. (18+) The c-bomb in films/TV shows?

    So settling down to another HBO series (Game of Thrones) and it's clearly obvious that more and more US films and TV shows are dropping the c-bomb. We watched Bridesmaids (a 15) and it was dropped, and I commented that it seems to me to be more used and maybe more acceptable in the US, which is...
  10. Serious thread, CS ****les is missing.

    Dear all. I dont normally post on here but i feel this is something important. I got a call from the big fellas old lady to say that he popped out to get a pint of milk and a paper yesterday and didnt come back. Now we have all done this in our life some more than others but he has been...

  12. rons 3 word blog[106 meeting] v shrimpfans.

    The scene was the Civic Centre, the 106 meeting. As my friend and I were going into the meeting he happened to mention to me that I should turn off my phone as he had already turned his off. As we take centre stage in the public seating area he whips out his blues scarf from his pocket and...

    HORSE TIP - 2.45 Fairyhouse

    This is it the day has arrived, time to dust off the bank card and bet like men. The Irish boys have waited months for this one and have decided with the money down to put Ruby on board to get the job done. Pay for your bird's boob job, your new car, holiday to Barbados or whatever.... This...

    fantasy premier league

    I've been romping up the table and now find myself 5th although expect I may be close with re-allocation of captain and players coming on to 2nd. 100 points to catch up Sean Thomas, the comeback starts here. Not sure who Adam Webb is but he might have had a bit of a beast with his wildcard in...

    England Not That Good

    Never let it be said that England's footballers are selfish divas, unwilling to lift a finger to help others. In Amsterdam, in front of 50,000 witnesses, these much-maligned millionaires generously donated two goals to their Dutch opponents, an act of charity that they'd prefer went entirely...

    Black panthers living in the wild

    I recall that some 20 years ago there used to be reports of black panther like cats being sighted in the woods out the back of Rochford. Whether it was real or just someone wanting to wind the OB up, I never knew. A couple of years ago, when the missus and I were on hols near the Pyrenées...

    Is it pikey to eat food in a supermarket before you have paid for it.

    Decided to treat Mrs DtS to a nice home cooked meal last night. Went to my local branch of Sainsburys and decided to purchase my produce (Some Squid, Salad and Fizzy Water for those of you that are interested). As I was in there I noticed a woman who was a larger lady and nature had not been...

    I wish I'd Gone To Hayes

    Barcelona 0-0 Chelsea So was it Guus Hiddink's tactics or Petr Cech's saves? Was it the referee and his failure to spot a late tug on Theirry Henry or was it Barcelona's inability to take their chances? Chelsea fans won't give two hoots. The net result of this rather grim affair was a scoreless...

    Fellow Shrimpers, lend me your ears (and eyes) for this is a rallying cry beyond the realms of any other before it... In a little under 24 hours, our hero's, proudly wearing the blue we love upon their chests, go into a true David and Goliath battle. In Goliath's corner, we have a squad...
