    Greek Tragedy For King Otto

    South Korea 2-0 Greece EURO 2004 SEEMS AN AWFULLY LONG TIME AGO It’s hard to believe that Greece ever caused the European superpowers such headaches. Granted, they were never blessed with a generation of superstars, but they always had their composure, their organisation and their ability to...
  3. Real Outclassed in El Clasico to Forget

    Lionel Messi and Pedro Rodriguez sealed a dominant win for Barcelona in El Clasico, seemingly deciding the La Liga title race as Real were left out thought, out fought and out classed. This will, by no means, go down in history as an El Clasico to remember. Barcelona entered the contest coming...

    The Internet Is Rubbish

    If this is the future then build me a time machine because I preferred it in the past. If I ever have to watch another game of football on my laptop, then there's going to be trouble. Nothing violent obviously, I'm far too weedy for a public rampage, but I tell you what, there'll be some fairly...
  5. The Midfield Balance

    Last week, I posted this after the Brighton game. http://www.shrimperzone.com/vb/showpost.php?p=1027163&postcount=55 Now more than ever, after two dismal losses against run of the mill teams where we've created nothing, it's been made quite evident that the midfield we operate doesn't work...

    New 'battle of' idea

    Battle of the invention - be it printing press, innoculation, steam engine or Breville pie magic. What do you reckon? For the record my nomination is the number zero.

    Scottish history is riddled with “myth and falsehood”

    So Haggis was an English creation and it now seems that the humble Kilt was an English invention as well. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1982040/Kilts-invented-by-English-in-Lord-Dacres-book.html

    Ha-Ha this is amazing. so i hear (from the powers that be) a few select posters (though i suspect its just the one) have complained about rep comments that i have left recently. rep, what a fantasic invention. a dot on a computer screen, who knew it would shake people up so much? with the...

    Sad news

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/foodanddrink/4295701/The-man-who-invented-the-doner-kebab-has-died.html A very sad day for all of us that have enjoyed his invention on long, messy nights out Lettuce pray for him

    I played the new Pro Evo on the PS3 last night...

    Not very good, is it? As a die hard Pro Evo fan, it seemed fundamentally the same as the version of the game I bought on the PS2 4 years ago. But with slightly delayed controls. And a lack of speed. And a ref who sent you off for a slight "X" tackle. And with the ability to do short passes...

    Free-kick spray

    Genius or unneccesary lunacy? BBC I had surreally hoped this was some sort of trained skunk with a 10 yard spray range - maybe I shouldn't have watched Bedknobs and Broomsticks whilst hammered the other night. Given my initial disappointment I can't decide whether this is a really good idea...

    Squeezy Condiment bottles

    Does anyone have the same problem? Great invention for getting all most every drop of tomato sauce out he bottle, great for putting pay to the clogged up lid. The purest might say that they prefer the old style bottles that they can bash on the bottom. I personally prefer the old style glass...

    Is this taking the name of the Wii too far?

    An interesting invention but will it make an appearance at a Festival near you??? Clicky here!!
  14. The Value Of A Drink.

    The Value of a Drink "Sometimes when I reflect back on all the wine I drink I feel shame. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the vineyards and all of their hopes and dreams .. If I didn't drink this wine, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered...

    Southend vs Southampton

    BATTLING BLUES GET WIN AT LAST What a difference a week makes. Morale and spirit hit a new low after last Saturday's abject performance against a very ordinary Wolves side. The local press ran a feature through the week revolving around the supporters views on what had gone wrong. Some -...

    I really wish I had discovered Bath Robe's earlier in life. For years I messed about using a couple of towels that kept falling down, never drying me properly and generally were a waste of time. Then I went on a work trip about 3 years ago and discovered the sheer joy of a bath robe. Since...

    100 Favourite SUFC Goals

    So, topic is quite simple. One goal each in a similar style to the other thread. It might be the quality of the goal or the significance. Perhaps it was just the randomness of the goal. Either way, put down the scorer, date, venue (H/A) and opposition as well as a justification of it. Obviously...

    Help !

    I need help, can someone please explain to me who or what a second round is ? I have always been led to believe that the Carling Cup starts and ends with round 1, i cant get my head round this, is it a new invention or has it always existed but Southend United have censored it from us fans ...

    The Dragons Den

    I caught glimpse of that Dragons Den programme last night. I actually liked the last invention of a egg heater, even though it didn't work at the time. I remember the nutty proffessor from Vision On and wonder if any Shrimper Zone posters had ideas for inventions that I can tinker with in...
