    A Merry Christmas from the SZ Prediction League

    Christmas was approaching and Ebenezer Shrimper-Scrooge received a message from DoDtS reminding him to post his predictions for Boxing Day and wishing him a happy Christmas. "Humbug" said scrooge "can't be bothered, I'll do it later!" Later that night after a healthy meal of a burger with no...
  2. Podcasts

    So what are you listening to? Any recommendations? Provide a summary if possible. This American Life My 'go to' podcast with almost 600 episodes (I've listened to 100 now, thanks to my commute!). Consistently high quality and interesting, but there are some exceptional pieces of investigative...

    A pub and restaurant at Garon Park?

    The Echo is carrying an article today revealing that a brewery chain is in Advanced talks with Southend Council to build a new pub and restaurant on the site which is currently used for overflow parking for Kids Kingdom. The location is a bit intriguing, especially as the old Rusty Bucket gave...

    A Review of the Current session

    Just one set of fixtures left in the current session and thought that perhaps time for a quick review of where we are: The first thing that strikes me is that predicting is down to luck with just a bit of common sense, for instance Oxford v Carlisle top v bottom, although in the JPT had to be a...

    Help wanted - iPod or other MP3?

    Morning chaps, any thoughts/advice on the following? I have had a 30gb iPod for about 10 years, and it is now giving up the ghost. I think I have managed to copy all the songs from it to my laptop, but looking at replacements, they no longer sell the classic iPods, only the iPod Touch, which I...

    Poorly Laptop and this weekends results

    My Laptop is everso poorly, and its s*d's law that it will give up the ghost just as I'm about to post the results on Saturday night! Hopefully it won't but if so please bear with me I will get the results up as quickly as I can (worst case is it could have wait till Monday). I'm getting it...
  9. Introduction of goal line technology

    How might this impact I wonder long term on non premier league football (which might have it in New Year). With estimates of it costing $250 k to introduce will lower league clubs eventually have to comply?? Will it be a condition of getting into the Prem league (I suggest still a few years off...

    A Mohsni Christmas Carol

    A MOHSNI CHRISTMAS CAROL A little bit of seasonal ShrimperZone Dickensish rubbish. It was Christmas Eve and Ebenezer Mohsni was home, alone tucking into his bowl of French Onion Soup mulling over the events of the past six months when he heard a clanking noise coming from another room. He...

    Monkey Tennis / Ghost Hunting with The Only Way is Essex

    Seeing the second of the two programmes in the title of the thread advertised on ITV2, I was reminded of a scene from Alan Partridge which (I've just found out spurred the phrase in the first part of the thread title). "In one scene the eponymous character of Partridge, a failed chat show...

    laptop display slowly dying on me - repair or replace (with PC or Mac)?

    The screen on my 4-year old laptop is finally going to give up the ghost in the next few days (hours!). I'm after some advice what to do next: 1. Pocket says, try to get the screen repaired (and the wireless card replaced as that doesn't work either)! 2. Head says replace with another...

    Battle of the 80s Films - Stand by Me v Ghost Busters

    Second tie. A masterpiece in the coming-of-age film, against a comedy classic which really delivered on music, quotes, and cool characters.
  15. Help needed

    Guys, Any techno whizzes out there who may be able to help me. My laptop blew up last month containing all the music held on I-tunes, now normally this wouldn't be a problem as I can just back it up from my i-pod to my new laptop. Unfortunately, about a week ago and before I got my new laptop...
  16. Dell laptops

    Are Dell laptops are any good? Need a new one as mine's finally given up the ghost, and I've seen an Inspiron 15 for 380 quid. Seems like a pretty good spec, just wondered if they were any good. Thanks.

    Found this on QPR's Messageboard

    Ok, so it was sent to me by someone on QPR's messageboard. I have to say that for the most part of this fan rant, I kind of have to agree! Of course, things are bad at QPR, so you can understand where this guy is coming from, but this is rage I have not witnessed very often!
  18. Films that have scared you

    When I saw the Blair Witch I wondered if I was watching the same film as the rest of the audience who were literally ******** a brick, and the Exorcist just made me laugh, however I'm not ashamed to say I'm still getting the shivers at some of the scenes in Paranormal Activity and there's a...
  19. Ron's Autobiography

    I've just finished ghost writing Ron's autobiography for Hodder. Apparently they're advancing him £2.1m tomorrow as they reckon future sales in the Southend area alone will be huge. Hodder have instructed me to ask the good fans of SUFC for a title for the book, as they are unhappy with the...

    X-Files Special: The Teflon Ron

    Reading through many of the posts regarding our current financial woes, one thought has struck me over and over again: How the hell does Ron Martin do it? Mr Martin has been proven to be a liar. That’s a fact that cannot be disputed. I was thinking of prefacing that with an ‘IMHO’, but I...
