    Best Comedy series of the 00s?

    Further to MK's thread about the state of comedy, I thought it might be good to discuss which comedy show was your favourite from the last decade. Many of the choices speak for themselves; The Office was a critical smash over here and developed the fly-on-wall feel of Ianucci / Morris' early...

    City Must Be Patient

    There's no doubt about the identity of this weekend's biggest fixture, is there? It is, as we have said many times already this campaign, 'a big weekend for Rafa Benitez'. Mind you, it's an even bigger one for Mark Hughes. After splashing more money than Victoria Beckham and Coleen Rooney...
  4. A lot worse than our club folding

    Dts and myself after discussing the possible demise of our beloved SUFC on Friday night realised an even more disturbing fact..It has been over a month now and the Spurs fan Lndfasto still remains in the Green. It shook us to the core and we had no idea as to why such a major thing could occur...
  5. Music question for music nuts

    this is a tough question... it's inevitable that someone will google it in the end, but anyways... Who was the only guest on the John Peel show to do a session and get asked by the great man himself for an encore? Green to whoever gets it:)

    SZ Novella - Chapter 8

    Chapter Eight - The Reduced Hypertherpia of the Closed Mancharia Osymandus pulled on a pair of heavy trousers and sucked the fetid air in through his teeth. Behind him, Rick Astley's body congealed silently on the floor, but of all the contributory factors to the awful smell in the room, he was...

    Question When and what made you sign up to ShrimperZone?

    After digging out some old posts from yesteryear, got me thinking about the all these posters who seem to be part of the furniture now but were no where to be seen back then. I think it would be good to see what drove us to join and when. My own story is that I used to frequent Shrimpers.Net...
  8. Roll call for the fans.

    If everything we have heard or read about the current state of The Blues finances is true then it is time to stop pointing the finger and lift our butt cheeks from the cosy armchair and do something/anything to be of positive assitance to our club. Many suggest RM is guilty of mismanagement of...

    Leyton Orient in possible Basildon move

    From the Sun today 'East Londoners Leyton Orient may say farewell to Brisbane Road. Owner Barry Hearn admitted. "We may look at moving to Harlow or Basildon, for instance, where a lot of our core support has moved out to" Surely he is not serious.

  13. Drop The Champions League and Step Away from the Football, ITV...

    Right, i've just about had my fill of ITV attempting to fumble their way through a live sports coverage now. Everything, right down to the very core, is just downright awful on ITV, but let's start with a few of the major errors that have struck me. 1) The presenting team and pundits. Steve...

    Why England Bother

    If you happen to be in possession of a British passport and you're in Berlin tonight, it might be worth taking your football boots with you. Given the speed at which England's stars are dropping out of contention, you'll probably get a game. Frank Lampard, Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand, Ashley...

    Hottest Burger In The World (some rude words)

    This is in Brisbane, shall I have a go when I get there in a months time and report back? Yeah, like f*** I will! was digging around the zGeek forums the other day when I stumbled across one of the funniest post-hot-food-eating articles I've ever read. "Cranky" had heard about the "Off the...
