  1. Are things that bad?

    Being a bit of the exile living in the north I rely on reports on here and the odd away game to judge the performance of the team, the away games that I've got along to were Rotherham and Donny (which were fun). some of the reports on here seem to suggest that we are lucky not to be cut adrift...

    Ireland and Afghanistan now full ICC members

    Which means they have both been granted Test status. Good news. Best of luck to both of them, apart from when they are playing England! I assume Ireland's Test matches will be part of a 'British Isles Tour' whenever teams are coming over to play us. Would Afghanistan play at home, or in the...

    Gulf between peak and SUFC career

    Following on from Uxbridge's post - can we name an eleven of players who were amazing elsewhere but pants here? 1. Neville Southall (578 appearances for Everton, 92 caps, 2 titles, 2 FA Cups, 1 ECWC) 2. Chris Ramsey (FA Cup finallist with Brighton) 3 Frank Lampard snr (2 caps) 4 George Parris...

    Home Form...no real suprise?

    Having posed a question on the forum today as well as poking my nose into other interesting threads - I have to say that the huge gulf in opinions on here (no bad thing) does lead to verbal jousting. Myself being easily sucked into that too..having entered with the express aim of not doing so...

    Zone Update ShrimperZone.com Limited - minor admin details

    Folks, In the coming weeks, the more eagle-eyed amongst you (or at least those with nothing better to do than to check up SZ's listing at Companies House) may notice a minor administrative change. The registered address of the company will be moving from its current address - 20 Shell Road, in...
  8. US Taxpayers to pay for rest of clean up not BP or other companies involved

    The US district court (forgive my ignorance on that if Rusty or other USA peeps could equate it to our judicial system ?) has decide thus http://blog.alexanderhiggins.com/2011/06/18/unbelievable-courts-rule-taxpayers-bp-transocean-liable-gulf-oil-spill-clean-costs-29071/ .

    Slithering To The Brink

    The swelling band of English football clubs in crisis has a new member and it's my own team, Southend United. Late on Monday night, Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs (HRMC) cancelled a planned Winding Up Petition and elected to pursue an Administration instead. Put simply, the club were flicked...
  12. New TV...

    This one's more for the Techies on here who can point me in the right direction... I'm looking at getting a new TV, but because I'll be moving in the near future I plan to get a top of the range bit of kit. 40"+ HD LCD/Plasma with at least 2 HDMI inputs is what I'm after. I've just got a few...

    Liverpool Must Prove Themselves

    It is time. Time to discover whether or not Liverpool have what it takes to be champions. Not champions of Europe, that staggered and seeded competition, winnable with just the right balance of Alamo-style defending and quick goals on the break. Champions of England. A far harder accolade to...

    Rugby - Help Required

    Ah, Uxbridge is going to love this. I've recently signed a four-book deal with the publishers of Football Fables to produce wry, but informative, guides to the four major sports. It's not quite as glamourous as it sounds. At 30,000 words, the books are rough-guides rather than ground-breaking...

    The Fall of Roman's Empire?

    The rumours that Roman Abramovich is attempting to sell Chelsea may have been quickly denied by the club, but when you stack up the numbers, it's all too plausible. Stamford Bridge has been a black hole for the Russian oligarch's cash and, in a year when he's lost so much money elsewhere, it...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend Seek To Add To Scolari's Woes

    Don't panic on the first line, you haven't got the day wrong. This is for tomorrow's paper! Six months ago, who could have believed that Chelsea would see tonight’s trip to Southend as anything other than a formality? For just a brief period at the start of his reign, Luiz Felipe Scolari...

    Question At what time in your life were you truly terrified?

    I've been scared many times - first time you find out you're going to be a parent (especially when you're still at school) is a frightening moment, but there's plenty of joy mixed in. I would have to say my first live engagement in the Gulf. You think you're ready after months of training but...

    Scolari Still Not Happy

    Under ordinary circumstances with an ordinary manager, a 4-0 victory in the Champions League might be considered worthy of celebration. However, it is rapidly becoming apparent that Luiz Felipe Scolari is very far from ordinary. "We did not play very well," he complained afterwards. "We made...

    A new era for the inbreds...

    ...or maybe not. Their phenomenal attendance of 5,340 yesterday included 1,000 away fans, so according to my maths their star signings and world class arena succeeded in attracting all of 4,340 home fans. Pathetic, in a word. Given that they are still full of their prospects for becoming an...
