    This made me laugh

    Came across this on Wiki when looking for something else. So descriptive it's untrue: Egg Banjo Egg Banjos are so ingrained into the life of the Army that they warrant an entire thread on ARRSE; Egg Banjo's, God's Own Food A sandwich made from (usually) half stale white bread, spread on both...
  2. Best solo/dribble goal?

    Struggling to remember many solo goals scored by SUFC. I mean, take on 4 or 5 players and score. Loza's against Oxford (not many players, but great) What are the best ones that you remember? Bonus points if you have a youtube link
  3. A bit of Cheer!

    Reading through these posts, i'm not a regular poster granted but I in my opinion last nights result had been very over dramatised. I myself know how important it was to not lose supposedly any of the last three games and yes is totally unacceptable, especially the 3-1 to AFC. Reading some of...

    Euro2012: England

    For ENGLAND chat only .. ie Barna if you wanna dribble on about the Spaniards you can, BUT ONLY in direct reference to England :winking: So what do we think up to now ?? v France .. defensively very good against excellent ball players like Nasri, Benzema and Ribery, i thought that gave us a...
  5. Lyle Della Verde

    Kid is doing well. To date it has been another positive season for the Academy’s Under-18s, Kit Symons’ side catching the eye with their attacking philosophy and exciting brand of football. With no shortage of creative quality, Lyle Della Verde is one who has certainly attracted attention...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend 0-0 Exeter

    League 2 football for us next year then :'( Never really threatened and could probably count the amount of shots on target on one hand. Nothing on the bench to change the game, Scott Spencer the only attacking option on the bench. Paterson and Vernon didn't click, Paterson hardly ever ran onto...

    Wilkins Worried By Wobbles

    After a hard night at Roots Hall, Luis Felipe Scolari was in no mood to face the media. Perhaps he was locked in the dressing room with a blackboard, some chalk and a squad still struggling to understand the concept of zonal marking. Whatever the reason, it was Ray Wilkins who squeezed into the...

    Question Where are they now ?

    Can anyone tell me where these fine wizards of the dribble are now? : - John Gymer, Andy Rogers, Martin Robinson, Francisco Cagigao ? I like to keep up to date with all things Shrimper. Thanks awfully chaps.

    Anyone who is currently serving and has served in the past should be able to identify with many of these certain 'traits'; sadly I do! You know you've been Defence institutionalised (made military) when... You use target indication to point out hot chicks. You use the term 'chicks' You...
  11. Tuesday Night Ratings

    Collis - 8 - looked comfortable all evening and although his kicking sometimes left a little to be desired, the speed he released the ball form his hands to the full backs to begin a counter attack was very good. Fantastic penalty save to take it to ET Gilbert - 6 - did OK tonight nothing more...

    Vintage Shrimperzone: Retro Poll No.1

    Retro is in kids and to boost flagging morale I thought it might be an idea to revisit some 'classic' debates that have been ground out on Shrimperzone's pages over the last five or so years. First up is a question that for a few seconds intrigued the Shrimper world back in November 2002-...

    Five things that grip my t**d! What grips yours?

    Is there something that sends you totally insane? Are you able to loose all rational thought over something that may seem trivial to others but to you, sends you over the edge? Honestly I am a very tolerant and passive person but, just lately, I dont no how I have refraind from wanting to smash...

    Lost in Translation

    from the guardian What football-related terms are there in other languages that have no direct equivalent in English?" we asked last week. "Don't the Brazilians have a word for dinking the ball over an opponent's head and dashing around to collect it? And does anyone have a better name for the...

    The fbm view and ratings

    2005 came to an end at the Hall with a game against Bournemouth, who's first match in 8 days should have given them a distinct fitness advantage over Blues injury hit squad. For the first 20 minutes it showed as well, with Blues midfield looking overrun and Bournemouths full backs staying...
  18. southend4ever


    This is a bit of a different topic but one I think you will enjoy discussing and airing your views. Who would be in your 5 a side team? name your formation as well. disregard subs for now. FLAHAVAN in the small goal - invincible. BARRETT for his ability to dribble would be in defence going on...
