    RIP.Peter Shaffer.

    https://www.theguardian.com/stage/2016/jun/06/peter-shaffer-equus-amadeus-playwright-dies-aged-90 RIP but I suppose 90's not a bad age to go though,really. I have fond memories of seeing his Amadeus (the night that Charles and Di got hitched) and Equus performed in London. Also remember when...

    Best Tinned Soup

    I don't think you can beat Heinz Cream Of Tomato although I am fond of Oxtail as well.
  3. Memory Lane The late, great, Reverend Bob - 12 years on!

    Many will read this and think "who?"... However I'm sure there are also plenty here that will think, "crikey there's a name from the past". It's been 12 years since Bob passed away. Many of us will have fond memories and stories to tell... Hopefully some will share them here. And what an...

    Goobye Golden Lion

    Whilst driving by, I have noticed refurb work being done on the Golden Lion and I wondered whether it would open as a pub again. I now know, courtesy of the Echo. It is being turned into bed-sits with the new owner's business (vintage cars) operating from the ground floor. Bit of a shame, but no...
  5. So when will RM give us all an update on FF?

    Anyone know when work starts on the new ground?
  6. Gerry Fell

    Saturday's match v Newport County evokes fond memories of one of my favourite Blues games ever. I may need some help from more aged 'zoners here, but, IIRC, it was around 1978, not too long before Newport went out of the FL and a few of their fans had actually walked to Southend and paraded...

    Memory Lane Any fond memories of the Alan Little era?

    Just wondered if anyone had any fond memories of the last time we appointed a northern manager. Little had at least played for us.
  8. Strike through

    Am I being thick, but I can't see how to do the strike through text like Yorkie is fond of using. Help please!

    Old season review videos???

    Bit of a random request but just wondering if anyone has a copy of the 98/99 season review VHS tape? I used to have a copy but got rid of it years ago, looking to get another one as 98/99 was my first season watching southend. Even though it was an awful season I have many fond memories of it...
  10. Welcome back Shrimperos brother.

    A thread to mark the return of the wonderful poster know as barnablue after a month ban,have you missed him? Are you chomping at the bit to read what great films he has watched or read his great links to left wing stories in his fav paper. Or are you looking forward to reasoned debate which he...
  11. Steve Tilson

    Breaks my hearts to have to post this in 'Ex-Shrimpers'.... Now the Tilson-era is over, what do you consider to be his greatest achievement at Southend United Football Club?

    RIP Fellow Shrimper

    Yesterday i learned some sad news at the passing after long term ill health of fellow Southend fan and good mate Barry Smith known to many friends and fellow supporters as "Slim". He was also involved for many years helping run the Southend Sceptre Sunday League. Barry was a lovely fella i met...

    Rollerball pens

    This might seem a really stupid question, but here goes. I normally use my fountain pens for day to day use, and fond them extremely reliable etc. However, I've also got a Rollerball for when I travel by plane and need to have something a bit nicer than a parker pen. Because this doesn't get...
  15. Ben Abbey

    I was on the tube this morning travelling into the City, when the guy next to me noticed by SUFC coat and asked if I was a fan and if I remembered him from 10 years ago (which I was, having been at Brisbane Road when he got both goals in the 2-0 win). Now works as a foreign currency trader in...
  16. Accountant help needed for dimwitted wife.

    Alas my wife has fluffed up yet again and being fond of fresh air i would rather not go to prison for non payment of tax so are there any brilliant or even rubbish accountants on the zone that could help her fill in a CT600 form,this is very urgent so any help would be great. Thanks.
  17. The Mark of a ChampiYong

    Ok, Ok, I know this is late... But I was on my travels while this happened. While your reading this, there's no doubt in my mind that Tiger Woods is on a golf course somewhere, meticulously tinkering away with his swing and clubs, trying to identify just what went wrong at Hazeltine. After...

    White Hart Lane

    I always enjoy a trip to White Hart Lane. Sure, it's in the middle of the north-east London badlands, a destination made even more remote by London Transport's fascination with shutting down the tube on match day, but there are consolations. For starters, there's the stadium itself, a hulking...

    Walsall Manager @ SUFC?

    Quote from Walsall manager, Chris Hutchings on the BBC Website: I've got no recollection of him ever being at the club - has anyone else? Nothing in the stats books so guess he must have been a youth teamer. Unless he means he played his first game against us - although "fond memories" seems...
  20. ex shrimpers
