    The price of Missiles!

    As quoted in todays paper "Defence expert Francis Tusa said yesterday Britain pays around £1.5million for a pair of air-launched Storm Shadow bombs. Each sea-launched Tomahawk sets us back about £900,000 a throw. And Mr Tusa, editor of Defence Analysis, said Tornado jets cost £40,000 to be in...

    Next season's home kit

    I've had a look back at the article on the OS when we launched the current home shirt and can't see any mention of the kit running for two seasons. I know some of you are not too keen on us having a new home shirt every season but I think there is a high likelihood we will have a new home...
  3. The Missing Gower

    The trouble with squad numbers is you don't know where they are supposed to be playing! Just watched Swansea on the league show, Gower played according to the pre match team sheet and i've just checked on the swansea website and he was on the pitch for the entire match. They talked on tv...

    Biggest win for over four years....

    Time for a positive amongst so many negative people and post's on here. Tonight's highly professional performance (IIRC) was our biggest competitive win for over 4 years. The last time we won by 4 or more goals was that fantastic demolition of QPR back on 9 Feb 2007. Well done Mr Sturrock...
  5. Friendly lincoln fan here.

    Hi folks, just thought i would register and say hi. As we all know, big game tomorrow. As they mentioned in the press call yesterday when tilly and brushy first joined us they knew what date they were playing you guys. From a personal point of view, having watched the imps for many years and...

    Cheltenham Festival 2011

    Anyone going? Any ante-post tickets being tightly clutched in anticipation? In answer to my own questions - (a) yes, on Gold Cup Day and (b) I've got Recession Proof at 16/1 (now around 10s) for the Supreme Novices Hurdle. If you are going to be punting during the Festival, please bear in mind...

    Iran threaten to boycott games in the name of anti-Semitism

    So the 2012 looks like Zion. And the Jews are running the whole show as normal. Very good analysis in Robin Shepherd's blog: In an anti-Semitic slur that would not have looked out of place in Germany in 1935, Iran has launched an official complaint over the logo for the London Olympics in 2012...
  8. Smash & Grab!

    Over the years of supporting the blues, which games spring to mind where we have snatched an unlikely/undeserved victory? A couple of games that spring to mind for myself - Northampton away during our league two promotion campaign where we scored two goals from corners (Barrett's length of the...

    How is it that Hooperman couldn't hit the proverbial whilst at Roots Hall, yet I have just watched him bang in 2 goals for Celtic in their little derby match?

    Asbo for teenager after booze-fuelled rampage

    I know this isn't directly linking to us as a club, but Ryan Hall kicks someone when they are on the ground, and allegedly goes inside to get a bottle which he DOESN'T use. Whereas... This guy has punched five different people in and around Wickford High Street in just 24 hours...

    The Qatar World Cup

    I was interested to see this in the news again with Sepp Blattering on about it. Apparently his comments were the strongest indication yet that it'll be held in the Summer. This came as a surprise to me, as I thought his comments were the strongest indication yet that it would be switched to...

    Pre-Match Thread Barnet v Southend

    So, we make the fairly short trip to Underhill this weekend. Which is traditionally a happy hunting ground for the Shrimpers. We should have a good travelling army well in excess of 1,000. So the atmosphere will be good. We have already gone there and put 4 past them this season in the JPT...

    Message to fans

    I have now spent some time since Monday reading the numerous posts on SZ and am dissapointed at how low the morale is on here. By all accounts we have not had a bad seasons, under the circumstances, yet the continuous bad feeling towards the players and PS amazes me. Hate, dislike RM all you...
  14. Not In Mohave Shrimper

    What have you watched on TV?

    As the original thread was lost in the ether after SZ's unexpected 'holiday', I thought it would be a good idea to kick it off again with Xmas TV upon us. Thoughts on the new series of Peep Show? Did anybody see Panorama last night on supermarkets/farming etc? On Tuesday I finally caught a...
  15. Ref Watch ...... Festive Cards

    Festive cards will not be in short supply if Boxing Day referee, Darren Deadman's last appearance at Roots Hall is anything to go by. Deadman, a civil servant from Cheshunt, showed 9 yellow cards in a staggering display of incompetence last season at home to Franchise FC. As it happens, we...
