    Group A - Brazil, Croatia, Mexico and Cameroon

    Group A, the group of the host nation, and possibly even the favourites. It seems that the draw has been kind to Brazil, and they will be expected to qualify from the group easily. The battle for second place and qualification to the next round will be close, with all three of the other teams...

    Barney should have got a penalty v Wimbledon

    It quite clearly was not a penalty because he had already blasted it over the bar and wide before he was taken out. But for me he should have seen that challenge coming and just toe poked it forward a couple of foot. Then the challenge would have been a clear penalty. This is a skill in my...

    City Shrimpers - POLL ADDED

    It's time to resurrect this once proud tradition, not least as we need to formally raise a glass in memory of one more of our own who is so sadly no longer with us. For those who haven't been before, it involves us congregating in the Ship near Fenchurch St/Liverpool St and putting the world to...

    I'm sure you will have seen in the chit-chat forum the tragic news about Steve (Ldnfatso). I am totally devastated by the news and trying to come to terms with it. Steve was a close friend, we used to sit together in the South Upper, attended numerous away games by coach, train and car, used...
  13. Arsenal rip off scousers

    Seems the Liverpool fans are to be charged £93 for the forthcoming cup game at the Emirates with no concessions?,Told this so not sure if accurate but if true those prices are damn crazy add the travel costs food drink and a prog means a conservative £150 at least. Mindboggling.

    Collymore Racist Abuse

    Don't know if anyone has noticed but Sir Stanley is receiving some down right disgusting racist abuse from Liverpool fans after he claimed Suarez dived in their game against Villa. Have we go back to the 80s what is wrong with people? Just because you don't agree with someone opinion doesn't...
  15. Westcliff Shrimper


    The media seems to be dominated at the moment with the Premiership clubs signing different companies to be their official supplier of certain things - the latest one is Liverpool having Dunkin' Donuts as their official supplier of snacks (or something like that). Got me thinking why the club...
  16. Universally respected groups - The Beatles

    As per the other thread, I personally would find it bizarre that people wouldn't like the 4 Mop Tops from Liverpool - there's surely something for everyone? Simple poll, do you like The Beatles? And if not, why not? What's not to like?
