    Latest Rumours April fools day

    Traditionally today is a day when we poke fun at our ailing neighbours up the A12. However, I have heard some news that shows what a caring club they really are. Their Chairman, Robbie Cowling, has apparently offered to donate a large section of their little used car park for use as a...

    Shrimperzone's Honourable Gentlemen

    Just a bit of fun, it's election time and Shrimperzone has evolved into a national and global beast. The decision has been taken to field a candidate to fight every seat in the country and the opinion polls suggest a landslide for us. We have no elected leader but in anticipation that we will be...
  3. Question Do you ever post on other clubs forums?

    It seems that whenever we lose a game, a couple of fans from the opposing clubs turn up on here afterwards but with a few honourable exceptions we don't get any of them coming on here after we've won. So I was wondering whether anyone on here ever posts on other clubs forums? If you post...
  4. Memory Lane How the Hell Did We Win That? (League Games Only)

    Couldn't sleep last night and my mind started drifting back. I started thinking about Southend performances that just shouldn't have happened. Who else has not gone to a game knowing full well there is absolutely no chance of us getting a result, then heard the score and found out we have defied...
  5. No Guard of Honour Disappoints Steve Evans

    http://www.crawleytownfc.com/newsdetails.php?ID=1952 For a guard of honour, I'm fairly sure you have to be honourable, Steve. Now, Martin Allen's a bellend but Steve Evans usurps him in the Bellend Stakes.

    PL Weekly Points Round 5

    A lack of shocks (despite our lads very best efforts to provide one) meant points galore this week, with an unprecedented 13 of us getting 6/6 to earn a bonus. Pride of place goes to everyones favourite punchbag ldnfatso with something like the 3rd highest PL score ever, honourable mentions to...

    FAO all Ron Martin believers, apologists, apathists: why I shall be voting option 5..

    Posters on this forum such as mcnasty & pboreham have questioned what a protest against ron will achieve & questioned the commitment of those participating, whilst also taking enjoyment from lampooning poor jack in the process. I don't claim to have the right...

    Oddly Named Pubs

    Can anyone offer anything better than; ''The Dying Gladiator'' Seen in Brigg, North Lincolnshire. Also honourable mention for ''Dog & Rat'' in Broughton, North Lincolnshire.

    The trouble with right wingers is....

    ....they lack a sense of humour(with the honourable exception of Kenneth Clarke).:) Please complete the sentence stem with your own thoughts.:soapbox:
  10. Terry Scores...

    Football fans are historically fickle and it doesn’t take an awful lot for them to turn on you, but when a judge is calling your character into question, you know that something just might be wrong… Commendable as it might be to step onto the pitch on the same day your personal life begins to...

    Fans Consortium

    Surely there are 66 fans who could find £10k in return for board level representation of both SEL and SUFC, and appropriate shareholdings? Will prevent relegation (through points deduction), allow for a bit more transparancy, and will be the honourable thing to do.

    Geoff King MUST go and GO SOON !!!!

    Shamelessly taken this description from another thread posted by Napster "Geoffrey King is a member of the Chartered Institute of Secretaries and Administrators, a member of the Institute of Management and a Fellow of the Faculty of Builders. Prior to his involvement with Southend United he...

    I'd Have Booed Beckham

    I've been a little bit sniffy about football in America in the past. With their 'marquee' players and unbridled enthusiasm for the spectacular, there's always been a doubt in my mind as to whether they really 'get' what football is all about. That is until now. I'm sure I can't be the only...

    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...

    A man of honour

    I am many things, but I like to think myself honourable. In the thread about the game tonight being on, I said something along the lines of "if the game is on, I will sport an I love Thatcher sig for a month". Unless we have a blizzard of bibilical proportions or I can sneak into the ground...

    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. When his 38-calibre revolver failed to fire at his intended victim during a hold-up in Long Beach , California , would-be robber James Elliot did...

    Redknapp's "Mish Mash" Players

    Michael Dawson summed it up best in the post-match interview. Most players, having secured a place at Wembley would bound onto the screen with a broad grin, congratulate, "the lads," and then scamper off for a late night on the bubbles. Not this time. Instead Dawson hung his head in shame. How...

    Battle of the Sitcoms - First Round Review

    Well that was Round One ... i was going to review every tie, but in the end i thought i'd just present the votes as cast and the percentage of the vote gained by the winner ... i will just make honourable mention to the crushing victories gained by Only Fools and Horses and Blackadder, and offer...
  19. Top ten worst managers of all time

    1. U2 - 'Sunday Bloody Sunday' 2. The Bangles - 'Manic Monday' 3. Craig David - '7 Days' Also honourable mention to 'Solomon Bites The Worm' by The Bluetones which spectacularly mentions all the weekdays.
