  1. It's going to be tight but yes!!! 6th place!

    Ok, time for an assessment of our play-off chances. 2 pieces of good news:- Scunthorpe's next 4 games are Oxford (a), Bradford (h), Millwall (a) Bolton (h). And secondly, Millwall's 3 rescheduled games are all away, including Sheff Utd and Rochdale. For what it's worth I think these are the 2...

  3. End of season League 1 prediction Table

    For those of you who might be interested, I came across this, end of season League 1 prediction table, last night. Link below: http://www.footballwebpages.co.uk/leagueone/league/predicted I haven't a clue what they've based the forthcoming results on, but it shows us finishing 7th. A few...

    Weston - what to do?

    I said in my earlier match report post that Weston would be the subject of a fair amount of debate and so it is proving. The various comments appear to be reasonably evenly balanced between the good and not so good, and let me say I don't have a problem with Weston's play apart from his...

  6. What are you drinking right now?

    Glenlivet Packed the family off to the inlaws for the weekend while I spent about 40 hrs in the office finishing off my draft thesis. Sent the draft off and got home at 11pm to spot a bottle of Glenlivet on the side and a note saying 'you deserve this' Not my favourite malt, and I spent about...
  7. Lets look at the playoffs so far

    I believe that so far all the playoffs has gone to finishing positions Middlesbourgh from the championship . Preston and Swindon league 1 Wycombe from our league The only non result so far is Ipswich and Norwich . But looking at it all the winning teams so far have either finished in the top 2...
  8. Remaining Games

    I thought I'd have a go at predicting the remaining games.These results have us finishing on 80 points. Whether that's enough? Anyone else think differently? Can someone shed some light on where else we could get points from? Never felt so deflated after Wycombe scored that 2nd goal yesterday...

    General Boxing Thread

    To save filling up the fight of the year thread with off topic stuff I thought I would start this. Interesting GBJ your views on AJ, I thought from what I've seen albeit he has had some pretty easy fighters but he looks the business and will go onto be one of the best heavyweights in the world...

    Combine any two players

    Watching young Coulthirst play, it's clear to me there's a talented footballer in there. At the moment, he's showing the old Eastwood ability for getting himself into a shooting position but the old Daniel Webb ability for finishing. If only we could combine his jinkiness* with the finishing of...

    How far can this side go?

    After a very solid start and a good performance by the fringe players against higher league opposition I was wondering how far this team can go. Personally think we have a stronger and more exciting squad than last year who really have a very good chance of finishing top 3. How does this team...

    Pre-Match Thread Stevenage (H)

    Thought i would get it going Based on the last two games i would go for: Bentley White, Prosser, Bolger, Coker Worrall, Leonard, Clifford Hurst, Barnard, Weston Think it will be a tough, physical game as is the norm with Stevenage. think Barnard after yesterday should get the nod over Corr...
  14. General World Cup thread

    I thought it was a good opener last night. Croatia looked a very strong team (Perisic is some player) and Brazil were lucky with a homer ref and some good finishing from Neymar and Oscar. They might struggle against teams who are strong in attack. Cesar and Luiz didn't play well and their full...

    Group A - Brazil, Croatia, Mexico and Cameroon

    Group A, the group of the host nation, and possibly even the favourites. It seems that the draw has been kind to Brazil, and they will be expected to qualify from the group easily. The battle for second place and qualification to the next round will be close, with all three of the other teams...

    Where will we end up?

    A guessing game for all on Shrimpers Zone. Cynics, optimists, regular attendees, now and agains and never goes, all are welcome. Quite simply, how many points do you think Blues will end up with by the end of their 46 games and what will their finishing position be pre -play offs. As...
  19. Jamie Stuart, Damian Scannell

    Both played for Sutton Utd yesterday vs Concord Rangers at the Aspect Arena. Scannell, who recently left Eastleigh, citing lack of guaranteed 1st team football, started on the right midfield. The one time terroriser of the Leeds Utd defence was subbed at half time due to injury. Stuart, used...
