    Any Toyota or Diesel Specialist Mechanics on here?

    Not sure if this is the right area, so mods please move if needed... I need help with my wife's Toyota, it is a MY2008 Verso T180 D4D About a year ago we started experiencing problems with v.poor MPG, and poor performance with the car eventually going into 'limp' mode. I booked it into a...

    Midi blog

    I see the blog section appears just to deal with football, so I've stuck mine here. Don't know whether it will interest anyone but it was good therapy, unwinding after an exhausting weekend. MIDI BLOG Today is one of the few days I can sit in front of the computer with absolutely no guilt...

    Latest Rumours Matt Sparrow in talks?

    Flashed up on Twitter tonight and then deleted. Has left Crawley so free to talk to other clubs, could be a possibility.

    Been flashed by a speed camera?

    Forget the fine and points... the biggest deterrent must be to not have to attend a speed awareness course. Read about my experience here http://sowhogetscustodyofthenectarpoints.blogspot.co.uk/
  6. Southend Airport threat to Blenheim school

    According to an article in today's Echo (so must be true) my old primary school is threatened with closure if Southend Airport gets any busier as its under the flightpath. http://www.echo-news.co.uk/news/4775511.Updated__Southend_Airport__a_threat_to_Blenheim_School_/?ref=mr The LibDem...

    Arsenal's Better Half

    Ask a new convert to Arsenal what the club's greatest weakness is and you'll get a variety of answers. You might hear that the players are too young, or that there's no cover in defensive midfield, or even that Nicklas Bendtner is a lumbering oaf incapable of even the simplest of motor skills...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Ricky Otto

    Next up for election to the Hall of Fame is Ricky Otto. Ricky Otto had it all: skill, flair and funny looking hair. He was signed by B****y F*y for £100,000, a fee that seems suspiciously high for a Leyton Orient reserve. I won't make any libellous suggestions about brown envelopes...

    SZ Novella - Chapter Two

    Chapter One here http://www.shrimperzone.com/vb/showthread.php?t=49964 Chapter Two - Making Your Way In This World Today, Takes Everything You've Got. Shackleford glanced back down the alleyway and patted Ricey on the back. "It's too dangerous to talk here. Come on, I'll take you somewhere...

    Proof that some footballers are thick as **** !!

    Boring Boro Fall To Chelsea

    The Chelsea rehabilitation continues, but the road to recovery is never easy. This, the fourth consecutive win since their violation at the hands of Manchester United, takes them to second place in the table, but they were certainly made to work for it by a Middlesbrough side who were...

    Funny email

    Yes, it's that magical time of year again when the Darwin Awards are bestowed, honouring the least evolved among us. Here is the glorious winner: 1.

    No Faith In Liverpool

    Liverpool Have Not Earned My Faith Alan Hansen ruined it for everyone. Before his infamous "you'll not win anything with kids" moment on the BBC in the mid-90s, football writers and pundits had the freedom to be as damning as they liked without the fear of a nasty comeuppance. But...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Chris Powell

    Fighting Talk on Radio 5 Live has a segment called Defending the Indefensible where pundits or comedians (note Mark Lawrensen the two are separate) are given an outrageous statement that they have to somehow justify for 30 seconds of airtime. Now I've always fancied my chances of playing devil's...

    Back In Business

    The roar, when the whistle finally came, was loud enough to shake the stadium to its foundations. A late Rafael strike and six minutes of injury time almost proved too much for the Arsenal fans who were in anguish at the prospect of another late capitulation, clutching their heads in their...

    Europe; van Der Vaart to Madrid

  17. CLUB SHOP - SEASON CARD DISCOUNT? Not any more..

    Made a visit to the club shop Saturday morning to purchase my new shirt - went to the till, flashed my season card expecting the 10% discount I was promised when I bought my season card to be told NO! You now have to be a club-blues member or something... Maybe I missed something, and if I...

    Saturday (Early) The alarm went off bang on 5 and hit the wall at 1 second past, my reflexes are still pretty quick even at this god awful hour. Get up and stand on clock. Scream and kick clock. Scream louder as I remember I have nothing on my feet. Clock looks all smug as I limp to the...

  20. The ESB Report (Sorry FBM)

    Had to write an 800 word report on the game last night for an assesment, and here it is: DONCASTER held Southend to a goal-less draw at Roots Hall to take a slight advantage in the League One play-off semi final. Rovers, who finished three places and four points ahead of their Essex...
