    White Poppies

    Wonderful piece from the Telegraph on White Poppies: At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, I am sure the thoughts of all Telegraph readers will be with those British and Commonwealth Service men and women who fell in the defence of our liberty. But spare a thought, too, for the...

    The unsavoury side of football - racist chanting against Balotelli

    After the shaking of heads and wagging of fingers at the Chelsea fans for their singing about Anton Ferdinand (anyone else find this a really strange incident bearing in mind Terry has played alongside Rio Ferdinand for years at the heart of the England defence?) on Tuesday night against Genk...

    Happy 60th Birthday to one of our most dedicated fans ...

    ... mfurok. He's rarely missed a game, home or away, for a Methuselan amount of years and it's a shame that he doesn't post on here as much as I'd like as he knows the game and Blues history probably better than anyone I know. Hope you have a great day, Ray, and fingers crossed that the boys...

    BT20 - Season 19

    Opening match for me in Australia overnight (which stopped me having a friendly yesterday!) and a comfy win with HHH and BFG rested. Much tougher game tomorrow so both of those return and Diggers (who usually gets smacked about in BT20 anyway) resting. Looking forward to seeing the updated...

    Tonight's matches

    Some very important games, which will have an impact on us this evening. Torquay v Cheltenham Burton v Stevenage Crewe v Accrington Port Vale v Hereford Ideally then, we want a Cheltenham, Burton and Hereford win and maybe a draw between Crewe and Accy. Very unlikely of course, fingers...

    OD - Week 8

    ShrimperZone CC v Purple Dinosaurs 6 competitive matches without a win, officially our worst run since the game started. Attempting to break the run against a team we've never lost to in 5 OD matches. Benji rests after running him into the ground in the FC game in the expectation of him...

    FC - Match 5

    Gatley v ShrimperZone CC Two matches in a row against Gatley, lovely. In Lancashire it's PC&H today and sunny the next two days. Fingers crossed we can actually win the toss for once as Sandy's calling has been awful lately. Had considered resting all 5 of my bowlers and trying to bat out...

    Youth Pulls

    I'm assuming by the lack of thread there's nothing too exciting out there? Interesting one for me, I stuck a bit on batting hence the woeful but I think I might train to respectable then sell. Scuffer's tool tells me he's 6.97 so fingers crossed a single week pop and a nice sale price...

    Fantasy Football Team Names

    Ladies and gentleman, Tomorrow is the deadline for submitting my Fantasy Football team, and I've assembled a solid squad which, fingers crossed, will beat my placing of 3rd last year round. All I need is a funny football team name. So far I've had Olypmic Mayonesse, Cutmy Arshavin and FC Porto...
  12. NSFW Cybersex - You're doing it wrong (18+)

    taken from b3ta: Online computer users often engage in what is affectionately known as "cybersex". Often the fantasies typed into keyboards and shared through Internet phone lines get pretty raunchy. However, as you'll see below, one of the two cyber-surfers in the following transcript of an...

    FC - Match 6

    ShrimperZone CC v Fingers XI Return game from last week, we'll do well to repeat last week's hefty win, particularly after losing two early wickets on a Sunny day. Good toss to win though as bowling conditions forecast for days 2 and 3. End of Over 14 (3 runs). ShrimperZone CC: 42-2...

    FC - Match 5

    Fingers XI v ShrimperZone CC 3rd v 2nd, level on points. With sunny days in Middlesex today and tomorrow it all points to a draw, though they do have an uber all rounder capable of wiping us out so we need to be careful. Batting first hopefully.

    OD - Week 5

    ShrimperZone CC v Gatley Ouch. Existing FC champions Gatley roll up at Garon Park including 500k batsman Jenny. Muse managed to grind out a draw with them in FC last week with these ratings: Southend Gatley Top Order: masterful elite Middle Order: miraculous elite Lower Order: competent...

    Question What Makes You Proud To Be English?

    Nice and simple this one. What makes you proud to be English. Is it music? Literature? Ant and Dec? For me, it's our long and glorious history of dissent. Since the dawn of time, we've had the courage to stick it to The Man. All the way back to Chaucer and beyond, we've refused to take any ****...
  20. rons 3 word blog[106 meeting] v shrimpfans.

    The scene was the Civic Centre, the 106 meeting. As my friend and I were going into the meeting he happened to mention to me that I should turn off my phone as he had already turned his off. As we take centre stage in the public seating area he whips out his blues scarf from his pocket and...
