    The state of policing

    A number of threads lately have had some serious police related postings as the main issue of the thread. I don't know how to generate a survey on here and IF some one can put one up with relevant questions please do. These are just a suggestion of some questions. Have the police lost control of...
  2. London Bridge incident.

    Sounds familiar to the Westminster Bridge incident. (Hopefully not). London Bridge station closed, and armed police on the scene. Early reports say there was a number of people being seriously injured by being hit by a white transit van on London Bridge, followed by knife attacks.........

    More local restaurant reviews.....

    IL Torrente, Benfleet. Food OK but overpriced and I think they are trying to cash in on an upmarket South Benfleet clientele. They didn't have Amaretto which is odd for an Italian restaurant and I saw them make an Irish coffee and stir the cream in. Don't think they will be around long unless...

    You dont sharpen a knife like that.....give it to me.

    Three hours later two fingers on my left hand are still bleeding although in my defence it was a fantastic roast and I had been on the red wine. Has anyone else made a spectacular tit of themselves recently? If so please provide full details.
  5. European music artists of any worth.

    Lets face it, most music from our European neighbours is dismal, so let's start a list of those bands/artists who's musical output is worthy of a spot for ShrimperZone's musical fascists :winking: Sweden - Abba, Wannadies, The Knife. France - Les Negresses Verte, Daft Punk. Iceland -...

  10. Mindless fans abusing players

    At the end of the Cheltenham game yesterday there was a small number of fans just putting the knife into Liam Dickenson. I think everyone in agreement it was a dreadful performance yesterday but the whole team had a poor game. Dickenson certainly did not deserve to be the only player singled out...

    The packed lunch thread.

    As part of a recent economy drive I have started taking packeed lunches to work. Today my sanwiches made it to 11:14am before I ate them - can anyone beat this. Also, can anyone beat the lack of effort I invested to make them - peanut butter with each slice of bread folded in half - not cut...
  13. Thrills, Spills and Unpaid Bills - The League One Review Part One

    So, another season bites the dust and it’s all over bar the fighting at the Wembley mud bath. As ever, ten months of football has served up more twists, turns and travesties than a Mail on Sunday honey trap and hopefully this should spread some light on the season just gone. Norwich Starting...

    Cricketers Wanted

    Good Morning All, Just been hit by news that a very good number three of ours is likely to be under the knife this summer, and what with two other batsmen moving on due to young families, it has left me utterly decimated for batsmen.... I run a local Chelmsford based club and looking to...

    Rubbish Arsenal Fans

    This is the uncut version of a column for tomorrow's Irish Examiner. I have to strip out 125 words before I can file, but I wanted the full version to get read before I took the knife to it. These people, they really, really grind my balls. The Arsenal fans. Not the Irish. They're lovely...

    Reasons to love Hitchcock

    1. In 'Psycho', where the guy is creeping up the stairs to check out the mother's bedroom, and the camera switches to an overhead view and then - out of nowhere - she rushes out knife in hand. ***** me up just thinking about it. 2. For that amazing shot in 'Frenzy' where you realise that the...
  18. Fight In Tottenham

    Anyone see crimewatch last night? Absolutely shocking. In Tottenham High Road, a few guys are hanging about after a night out, some are sitting down, looks like they are waiting for a taxi. One is staggering about and clearly drunk, he steps back without looking and knocks into a coloured...

    The MK Pledge

    Right this is a post I have never really attempted before, after receiving a nice message from DTS this morning I have decided to give it a go. We need as much support at MK as possible we need passion and we need people up the back who want to sing for 90 mins, Dave has kindly said he will be...
