    Kevin Maher

    With most of the Oldham fans on 606 predicting a very comfortable win for us today, one of them mentioned that Kev's contract with them is up this summer. Poor old bloke, hope he finds something else if that's the case, and I do, really hope that he's down for Spinner's testimonial.

    Time of the month

    A study conducted by UCLA’s Department of Psychiatry has revealed that the kind of face a woman finds attractive on a man can differ depending on where she is in her menstrual cycle. For example: If she is ovulating, she is attracted to men with rugged and masculine features. However, if she...

    The Apprentice - week 1

    Whoever the 16th person was who "bottled it" before the tv stage, he enjoyed more air time than the majority of those on the men's team - Howard excepted. Tonight was all about the meltdown in the girls' team. Stepping up to the plate in week 1, Mona (surely the a and n are the wrong way round?)...

    Prove You're Not A Cheat

    As Cristiano Ronaldo lay on the frozen turf at St James Park watching a chorus line of tiny birds circling his head, I wonder if he had time to ponder the irony of his situation. After years spent convincing referees that he had been fouled when he hadn't, he now finds himself being cynically...

    A Sensitive Man

    A woman meets a man in a bar. They talk; they connect; they end up leaving together. They get back to his place, and as he shows her around his apartment she notices that one wall of his bedroom is completely filled with soft, sweet, cuddly teddy bears. There are three shelves in the...

    Guilty Secrets

    Mrs Slipperduke was away last weekend and, making use of the peace, the quiet and the chance to watch the telly for once I had a little flick through the channels. Spinning through the schedules, I chanced upon a show that I used to love when I was younger and I tuned in for 'just a couple of...

    The Fall of Roman's Empire?

    The rumours that Roman Abramovich is attempting to sell Chelsea may have been quickly denied by the club, but when you stack up the numbers, it's all too plausible. Stamford Bridge has been a black hole for the Russian oligarch's cash and, in a year when he's lost so much money elsewhere, it...

    Supporting a club like Southend United

    As I sat high up in the Shed End at Stamford Bridge enjoying our moment in the sun on the greyest of winter days, soaking up the Blue Voice inspired atmosphere, taking in the flag-waving travelling Shrimper army bedecked in yellow and coping with the perforation of my ear-drums from an incessant...

    Thirty Years On - The Parallels

    Thirty years ago today we played Liverpool at Roots Hall in Round 3 of the FA Cup. I was relieved. It was a game that should have been played the previous weekend but had been postponed due to the arctic conditions that were gripping the country at that time. That weekend had been due to go on...

    A 'Blonde' joke I really found quite funny...

    A blind man enters a lesbian bar by mistake. He finds his way to a bar stool and orders a drink. After sitting there for a while, he yells to the bartender in a loud voice, "Hey bartender, you wanna hear a dumb blonde joke?"!!! The bar immediately falls deathly quiet. In a very deep, husky...

    Shrimpers United in Brisbane

    Statski77 (Matt) is currently over here on holiday visiting his family who live in Brisbane now and last night we met up for the Queensland Roar game. We had a few beers pre-match in Caxton Street and into the ground where he took a few photo's which I'm sure will be posted on here when he...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 3 Colchester 3

    If it can ever really be said that we scored (twice!) too early, then it could be said about this one. After the midweek heroics against Leeds, it was always going to be difficult to raise ourselves a second time in such quick succession. With the visiting Ewes enjoying a rest during the week...
  15. Why bother francis?

    from what i've seen of the guy in past seasons compared to this season, is there any point of him even turning up to games at the weekend? theres no passion, no commitment and no concentration. Does anyone know any reason why this sudden drop in form has occured? He has gone from a solid...

    lefties protest at bank bailout

    http://uk.news.yahoo.com/ap/20081010/img/pbs-britain-markets-717896c-c6adbc03cf11.html am I the only one who finds it ironic that a bunch of students and soap dodging dole artists are complaining about others being bailed out?

    There's only two Lee Barnards

    Good to see that when Lee Barnard isn't busy firing in the goals for us he's busy running for Congress. Of course, he's not the only multi-tasking Shrimper (past or present). Jason Lee has starred in My Name Is Earl, whilst Mike Marsh was a very handy 200m runner In the warm glow of last...

    Wireless Internet...

    So, I got my Laptop back from the repair shop today and he had taken all my programs off of it becuase they were all messed up. This morning I installed a driver to allow my Belkin USB adaptor to work which it did, then when I plug in the USB it finds the network but gets stuck at "Acquiring...
