  1. Our own Worst Enemy

    I wonder how many of us actually thought we'd finish in the top half of the table when the season began? have we as fans got carried away by the period of good results we had towards the end of the year and early part of this year? it its arguable that Wycombe deserved to be promoted off the...
  2. Fair play and thanks

    Didn't seem appropriate to jump on the other thread (now closed) but given I occasionally post on here only fair I come out of hiding and say fair play on both results in the Derby this season (unfortunately likely to be the last for a while I suspect) My main reason for posting though is to...

    The Guardian Exposed

    The next time a link to The Guardian is rammed down your neck by those that would eat the rich, demand socialism and deny choice, then consider this. A list of Guardian contributors who demand equality for the downtrodden but have, of course, never experienced hardship and never will. I give...

    Southend's future number one.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, I have just had a text from a very proud father (D.O.L.L) who has confirmed that Southend and Englands future number one Lucky Luca has been given yet another year by SUFC. This is a huge achievement for Luca as a few of his team mates have been released and it shows the...

    Post 10,000

    Well where do I start? Little did I think that in August 2005 when finding a site called Shrimperzone that some 7 years later I would still be looking at the site, let alone reaching my 10,000th post. What a ride though. The site is fantastic, has something for everyone. It has changed guise a...

  10. A team we call United

    For the older members out there, back in the late 60's, early 70's a couple of brothers, the Bushells made a film called 'A team called United'. I remember watching a reel to reel version in the Shrimpers club as a young lad. I have hunted everywhere to see see if the footage is anywhere on...

    Fifa rotten to the core?

    Civil war appears to have broken out in Fifa, a pretty unedifying spectacle. Whole organisation seems totally corrupt. Perhaps we should follow Australia in claiming our expenses back for the last hopeless and futile bid to hold the competition?
  12. Fat Lot of good that done, then...

    So, the day after Premier League squads had to announce their chosen 25 players, with 8 needing to be "Home Grown", and it's solved the square root of sod all. Manchester City's Balotelli qualifies as a given because he's 20 years old. The likes of Fabregas and Clichy count towards Arsenal's...

    How much can we read into contract lengths?

    I was really interested to hear Phillips say he was on a 2 year deal. I thought he would be our third centre-half, but now I'm not so sure. Paul Sturrock needed to assemble a squad quickly, so he may have had to compromise on quality in order to get bodies in. There appear to have been lots of...

  16. What would League 2 mean?

    For starters would the new ground be scrapped? If we're languising in the bottom 4 does administration now make more sense if we're going down anyway? Would we lose our core of talented new young players coming through? Having said that - we could still survive the drop ;) Discuss..

    hi all, I've got the option to pick a work laptop (within reason). I want something dual core with Windows 7, quick and compact... I'd guess a Sony would be too expensive, although I'm not exactly sure of a budget... just within reason. any suggestions? Whoops - i meant to say Notebook, not...

    Blair: Gaza's great betrayer

    It's more than a year since Israel launched its immoral attack on Gaza and Palestinians are still living on the verge of a humanitarian disaster. So what has Tony Blair done to further peace in the region? Virtually nothing, argues the historian Avi Shlaim Comments (98) Buzz up! Digg it Avi...

    Wenger Really Isn't A Paedo

    Sir Alex Ferguson has not exactly covered himself in glory in front of the press this season, but his spirited defence of Arsene Wenger's honour is to be applauded. The Manchester United boss has called on his own supporters to refrain from their sickening chants about Arsene Wenger when they...
