    Remaining Fixtures

    Just had a little look at the remaining fixtures, both for ourselves and those around us. Just a reminder that ours are: Torquay (H) Cheltenham (A) Wimbledon (H) Rochdale (A) Accrington (H) Fleetwood (A) Burton (H) Of those you have to say that Rochdale and Fleetwood away are both tricky and...
  3. Question Dougie Freedman

    Confession: I support Palace first, Southend second. I have just got hold of a copy of the new Dougie Freedman book from ebay. It starts and ends with his time at Roots Hall. Very interesting. Was he of much use as a Shrimper? He seemed to get off to a flying start, then fade.

    Spain Pacify Iraqi Resistance

    Spain 1-0 Iraq Villa 55 The trouble with winning well is that it never goes unnoticed. For every barnstorming 5-0 victory, resplendent with glorious passing and breathtaking goals, there's always a coach out there somewhere who watches it and thinks, 'that's not going to happen to me.' More...

    SZ Novella - Chapter Four

    Chapter Four - We Fade To Grays "Old Blue Lady," grinned Shackleford as she approached the table, holding Ricey carefully by the earlobe. "You came." Old Blue Lady lowered her squirming guest gently onto a barstool and stepped away, leaving him clutching his ear in annoyance and glaring up at...

    2 True Stories!

    STORY NUMBER ONE Many years ago, Al Capone virtually owned Chicago . Capone wasn't famous for anything heroic. He was notorious for enmeshing the windy city in everything from bootlegged booze and prostitution to murder. Capone had a lawyer nicknamed "Easy Eddie." He was...
  7. Fave US/Canadian Sports Teams

    From the Superbowl thread I can see a lot of interest in the NFL amongst Zoners, wondered if this spread to other US sports. Having spent 5 years in Canada and the US, I am a big fan of all four major US sports, and I follow these teams: NHL: Montreal Canadiens. (Seen them live twice)...
  8. 9 games down, 16 points...

    So come on then. We're nine games into the season now. Everybody always says give it ten games and then you'll know how the season's going to go so where does everybody think we'll end up...? We had a poor start, but seem to be finding our feet of late, even if Leon Clarke is the only striker...

    LCD TV's

    Bit of advice please from the techys on here. Almost 2 and a half years ago I bought a Panasonic Viera LCD TV. Recently (well basically since I had an inept Sky engineer round to fit a new Sky+ box) I've noticed there's a part of the screen which produces a kind of a shadow on certain colours...
  10. new song suggestion ..

    New Franz Ferdinand Album

    I'm now in possession of the new Franz Ferdinand album due to it being "leaked" over the weekend. My advice, if you like the first album buy it. If you didn't like it or you didn't really have an opinion then don't bother. It doesn't really rip up new ground...
  12. You are my Southend

    You are my Southend Ooh, my only Southend Ooh, you make me happy when skies are gray, when skies are gray, you'll never know dear how much I love you until you take-ah my Southend away. Na na na na na Ohh, na na na na na ohh repeat to fade. That is all I thankyou

    Over three years ago, myself and Scriv launched ShrimperZone onto an unsuspecting public. Neither of us expected the site (and its forums) to take off as well as it did, nor to find ourselves running a site that attracted a hit count that was regularly hitting the 250,000 mark each week. It has...

    Ginger's to become extinct

    <span style='font-family:comic sans ms'>Seriously&#33; Not a joke&#33;&#33; According to scientists, ginger hair will fade out due to more racially mixed relations... Apparently blondes will be going the same way, but at a much slower rate... So, MF, you have even more in common with a Dodo.</span>
