    Saturday 12th May sees me play my last competitive football game. That will have been 42 years of league football since my old teacher at Westleigh Junior School entered us in the Southend Junior league back in 1976. Since then I make it I have played for 16 different clubs in 15 different...

    Husband needed

    I apologise for the length of the post but I'm curious to see if anyone fits the bill. ​** This marriage advert is clear, legit & real. ** When the true fate brings someone special related to your soul, distance is not an issue with cars & airplanes. I am looking for a true nice...

    Monday Night Noxious Club

    At the risk of upsetting Berrichonne Shrimper with my unfettered ego, I'd like to tell you about a radio show that I'm kicking off tomorrow night on The Source 96.1FM. As TravelZoners will know, I like to get a bit of Shrimpers-related stuff into my public service broadcasting and I hope to find...

    http://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/north-east-lincolnshire-council-support-for-a-community-stadium-and-leisure-complex-at-peaks-parkway Now this below is well worth a read, done over four years ago upon relegation to non league.

    The box set thread

    What are you watching, what would you recommend? I am currently watching King Of The Hill. Fantastically well observed. Not laugh out loud stuff but very subtle and clever - 9.5/10 I recently watched Sons of Anarchy and gave up 25 minutes into the first episode. It could only have been more...

    Question What if.........................we get promoted?

    Can we afford it? The back bone of a new squad would be required on higher wages that we may not be able to afford. Would the crowd increase significantly thus bringing in the revenue? Could we afford to wait an extra year whilst the new ground gets built? Now I admit my finger isnt on...

    Jamie Rednapp is 'literally' tickling my funny bone.....

    Does Jamie Redknapp understand the meaning of the word 'literally?' Picture some of these situations: "These balls now - they literally explode off your feet." "Alonso and Sissoko have been picked to literally sit in front of the back four." "He's literally left Ben Haim for dead there."...

    Top Gear: Alan Partridge Speaks Out

    Good column here from Steve Coogan. "As a huge fan of Top Gear. I normally regard the presenters' brand of irreverence as a part of the rough and tumble that goes with having a sense of humour. I've been on the show three times and had a go at their celebrity-lap challenge, and I would love to...

    Bullies and Bullying

    Now bare with me good readers, this is going somewhere but I want to give it some background first. When I was a kid I was bullied, bad. My first taste of it was at the grand old age of 4 years old at nursery school where a phycotic 5 year old used to attack the entire fraturnity. He would rip...

    Cheryl Cole. Grrrr.

    There are a million and one reasons to dislike Cheryl Cole. There’s her colour, for starters, a curious orangey glow that smacks of either too much Sunny Delight or too many quid-a-minute South Shields tanning salons. There’s her husband, the odious little skraeling who earns more money in the...

    Question Football related injuries?

    On Boxing Day over here I went to see Brisbane away at Gold Coast. In line with many away days watching Southend it was a cracking day out (however I've never drunk beer overlooking a beach like Surfers Paradise whilst watching the Mighty Shrimpers) spoiled only by the football (we got beat...

    Having left Maidstone and joined Croydon Athletic , he's up to his old bone breaking tricks. This time an arm which will keep him out for a month, according to their website.
  20. Question Testicles

    After just taking a clean flick to my testes and spending the last 10mins doubled over feeling sick, it made me wonder.....why do they hang in such a thin skin sack, outside the frame of the body when they are so sensitive! why are they not incased in bone or up inside us with the rest of us...
