    New kits for 2018/19

    A thread to chat about new kits coming on for next season. I'll start with this beaut, great effort by Palace and a nod to some of their iconic shirts from the 70s/80s.

    Fort Lauderdale airport shooting: Five people shot dead by Florida gunman

    I was going to put this into Homer's Bar but decided it probably belonged here. Leaving aside the immediate devastating impact of this event, I was absolutely astonished that passengers are allowed to carry guns in their luggage on American airlines. Listening to 'experts' yesterday it seems...
  3. 16/17 Kits

    Just seen that a few clubs in our league have already released their kits for next season... MILLWALL - AWAY - Obviously, could still go up ROCHDALE - HOME & AWAY More to follow as and when they're released I guess...
  4. Podcasts

    So what are you listening to? Any recommendations? Provide a summary if possible. This American Life My 'go to' podcast with almost 600 episodes (I've listened to 100 now, thanks to my commute!). Consistently high quality and interesting, but there are some exceptional pieces of investigative...
  5. Research on Policing at Football

    Dear all, Given that research is finding a more sanitised and gentrified culture of British football (see: https://www.academia.edu/18862556/Football_Fans_Views_of_Violence_in_British_Football_Evidence_of_a_Sanitized_and_Gentrified_Culture) , I am hoping you could spare a few minutes to share...

    James Blunt and the Jealous Shadow Minister

    Anyone else see this? Chris Bryant,the shadow Culture Minister took a direct swipe at James Blunt by name dropping him while bitching about too many people from boarding school backgrounds being in music, films and TV, etc. Blunt rightly took offence and below is his reply...
  8. Shrimpers are Magic

    Page 3

    Never worried me TBH and probably carried on so long as a bit of a two finger salute to the political correct brigade. Rebekah Brooks vowed to end it and in the end championed it but writing was on the wall when Murdoch implied it was outdated. Love it or hate it it has been part of our modern...

    Tipping and "Christmas Boxes" - do you, and if so, who to?

    Just following on from the discussions on the free travel thread, I thought I would open it up more for discussion. Back in the day it used to be common place to give your postman, your milkman, your window cleaner and your dustman a Christmas "box" or a "good drink", in a similar way in which...

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/cricket/kevinpietersen/11142212/Kevin-Pietersen-exclusive-interview-The-truth-about-Englands-bullying-culture.html While there probably were bullying issues in the England camp (there probably are in every sporting team). The 'woe me' attitude and claims that...

    Maria Miller

    How is is right that an MP steals money from her employer to the tune of 45k yet is then only asked to pay back 5k and say sorry. Surely any normal person who stole that amount would face jail for theft. This one rule for us in power and one for the plebs is disgusting.Cameron backing her...

    A Century United ripped off

    Hartlepool Utd have nicked our "A Century United" theme for their shirts this season. Nice kit though Either we should demand a commission off every shirt they sell, or Tom will need to register on MonkeyhangerZone ;)
  13. The Jobson Years

    Hi everyone I've been reading this forum with interest. I'm now ready to make my debut. Firstly, a big thank you to everyone associated with running Shrimperzone. One thing that strikes me is that most people's views on here are so black and white. So, I'm going to present a balanced view on...
  14. Possible New Kit Design?

    Someone posted a few weeks back the info that we would be getting a completely new kit design and possible new kit manufacturer as of next season, Believe it was as a result of the AGM. http://www.footballshirtculture.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=1022&Itemid=26 These are the...
  15. standupsitdown

    Lads, just wanted to bring your attention to standupsitdown.co.uk, there's a brilliant forum discussing the issues that are bringing our beloved game and football culture into decline. Being outsung by 4,000 Germans would have been unthought of not so long ago. they're trying to get a plan of...
  16. 2 Things Really Getting My Goat

    2 items of news this weekend from my favourite paper 1. An asian only festival in ealing over the weekend, purely and simply for asians, playing asian music, serving asian food, lots of comments from the organisers, pretty much putting in the face of people, celebrating their culture in our...

    Maybe Tilly should.....

    .... spend a day's session of pre-season teaching the players whenever we come up against this shirt, do NOT score own-goals! New O's shirt Any other ideas as to what he needs to drill into the boys this summer? :p

    Gotta love this shirt

    Inter Milan away 07/08 Other clearer pic I wonder if this is what Nike had in store for the England shirt if the FA hadn't been blined by the £££s Umbro offered them to continue their "special partnership"? Also, I see Fulham are the latest club to undertake a SUFC style kit deal with Nike...

    Football culture and match day scrap book

    Just had a thought about doing a photo / image scrapbook that shows pictures that are evocative of footy subculture and the whole match day experience for you all. This can be anything from any clubs that mean something to you not just Southend but others as well, grounds both old & new...

    New Spurs kits 07/08 - 125 year celebrations

    Spurs kit launch Well, despite being one of the most disliked teams in England by opposing fans, you have to give it to them, they've done it again by having some of the smartest playing kit around (although I'm not so sure about the one-off 125 year anniversary shirt). I also like the idea of...
