    Record Shops I Have Loved

    This was meant to go in another thread which is closed for a few more hours, but seeing that this is ready for 'release,' I just wanted to get it 'out there' for the record-buying public of ShrimperZone. This one's a tribute to 'Carmel Records'... "Van Morrison once said that Jackie Wilson...
  4. Dirty weeds staying down

    Great news, so nice to see the scum of Football staying in the Division they belong. I am no lover of Millwall but I'll take them over Leeds anytime. Will make League one even stronger next season. Just look forward to beating them again at Roots Hall.

    Random news story.

    A judge in Stuttgart, Germany, is currently trying to decide on a lawsuit in which a man hired his neighbour to impregnate his wife. It gets weirder. Demetrius Soupolos, 29, and his former beauty queen wife, Traute, were very keen to have a child together, but Demetrius was Sterile so they...
  6. Milan Mandaric

    ...was bizarrely on our train back to London last night. I think he was sitting with one of the directors. He received a call from Harry Redknapp wishing his congratulations and joked about loaning a few players for next year. I was a bit riled after reading his comments in The Sun that morning...

    Interesting article about new stadia

    I wasn't sure whether to put this is in the General Sports forum or here but I think the warnings about the sterility of a new stadium and its impact on die-hard supporters belong here. http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=simmons/partone/081121 The most worrying thing I noted was...

    Rusty Shackleford's X-Files: SUFC Special

    I thought I would depart from the normal RSXF theme of carl, steveo and I arguing with all the Godless lefties and discuss something which really doesn’t belong in the Pub section – my view on the current state of Southend United, both on and off the field. Steve Tilson has presided over one...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Ronnie Pountney 2nd vote

    Up for the second time is Ronnie Pountney The first individual to be nominated 6 times, this still wasn't enough to make him a first ballot hall of famer, as his vote seemed to have got lost in the Christmas period. The idea that Pountney didn't make it was met by incredulity from those who...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Ronnie Pountney

    There are many ways to measure greatness: appearances, medals, honours, popularity. Well Ron Pountney sits third in the all-time appearance list, was an integral part of the club's first major title (Division 4, 1980-81) and won the player of the year award a record three times. Ronnie...

    Live Chat Thread

    Just had a look through the last few pages (I know, shouldn't stick my nose in where it doesn't belong). There are a number of comments that I am sure wouldn't be made in front of the subjects (thankfully not involving me). A few should just remember that their pictures of their faces, and...

  19. Supporting Southend

    As a kid growing up I found myself supporting Arsenal. Watching them lift the Cup Winners Cup started this short love affair with a big gun. At this time I had never even heard of Southend United. Even tho my grandad supported them he never spoke of the mighty blues, having supported them...
