    Eurovision 2018

    I think the bookies have the UK entry at 200/1 and sadly this contest is currently being inflicted on me by virtue of the fact that I'm in the lounge. Assuming we will again get hammered by the East European cliques I do wonder whether there should be an award for the most commonly used language...

    My friendly invasion - Its was all big Bill Garners fault!

    My friendly invasion Many years ago, in fact it was 23rd July 1985 I was lounging in the sunshine in Southchurch Park in Southend it was a Sunday. The reason for me being prostrate on this beautiful Sunday was I was watching a one day match between Essex and it could have been Warwickshire or...

    Chance to win 4 tickets to watch Blackpool from the Centre Circle Lounge

    This is on SUFC's Twitter account. If you're interested and feeling in the mood to 'caption' then head over to www.Facebook.com/tradepricecars to enter. Obviously, if you win but you're stuffed to find 3 mates to go with you, I'm sure chums on here will be willing to oblige.

    Telephone Sockets

    We're currently having a lot of work done on our house. One of the jobs was to remove all the old telephone sockets and wiring, and install a new telephone socket in the lounge. The guy who did it has done a really good job. We now only have one cable from the junction box inside the house...
  5. More staff leave the club

    Just found out that some more staff have been given the push, including Sue Page. I always found her great to deal with, she's the very nice lady who organises the corporate deals in the Centre Circle and Blues lounge etc. Sue had previously worked for West Ham and Col U so had plenty of...

    The Rob Noxious 'Me, Myself & I' Thread

    Greetings to all my fans, friends and associates on ShrimperZone, old and new - and those yet to be discovered. I thought that it might help your ease of reference to know what great things I'm up to if I plonked the relevant information here on this new 'Me, Myself and I' thread. It's my...

    Long story, power cuts and a water dowser.

    If I had posted this when it started, it may have had the legs to match MK's fridge post. So i'll keep it short but you may get bored. Earlier this year, probably February time, I saw some damp patches on the left side outside wall of my house. Thought they would dry up but they didn't. We...

    HDMI cables and other electrical leads - I've got the arseache

    I've had been recently commissioned by the Goddess to move our television in the lounge to a more central position on a wall a fair bit further away from the existing cable entry points. This has required longer Fig 8 power cables, longer internet patch cables and most importantly for me, a...

    Things You've Broken at Home and Got Away With

    Years ago, when I was still at school I had an 18th birthday party in my parents' house. My parents were very sensible and booked into a hotel for the night. That was partly to do with noise, and partly to do with the fact that about 20-30 people stayed over because they had travelled long...

    Abuse on the streets

    I do a lot of cycling and it has occurred to me that I get a lot of abuse whilst out and about. Recent examples: Car passenger shouting the C word at me on Southend Seafront Half a can of Lager thrown from a car on Canvey. Drunken tattooed lout jumping in front of me and making dog barking...

    Wasps nests

    There appears to be a wasps nest under my lounge floor. I think it is quite a big one because in one minute I counted over 150 wasps entering/leaving the air brick at the front of my house. Any advice? I am a live and let live kind of person but don't want to risk them swarming into my...

    Question Football Books

    I'm heading off on my holidays for 10 days in July and looking at getting a couple of good football books to read whilst on my sunlounger. I've read Red Card Roy and Simon Jordan's (Ex-Palace chairman) autobiography on previous holidays and am nearly finished with The Nowhere Men, so looking...

    Recent DIY wins

    I recently noticed the pressure gauge reading low on my combi boiler. I re-pressurized the system only to notice the pressure drop off again over the next few days. This pointed to a leak in the central heating system which could have involved ripping up newly laid floors at worst and at best...

    A word of praise for the SUFC Commercial Dept

    I see on another thread that there was a screw up re tickets. The same happened to us - as a treat for my eldest's b'day we today used the always excellent Blues Lounge hosted by the genial David Crown. No issues re any of it bar the tickets which when I looked at them just before transferring...

    Lou Reed

    Reports on tweeter that Lou Reed has died. Russsian Market reporting this and he is amazingly good with his information. Also sorry to see that Marcia Wallace of The Simpsons fame has passed away from breast cancer.

    D&R Today

    I've been on a course in the players lounge today. I spent all day writing Southend United related post it notes and leaving them in every conceivable place. I genuinely think it'll take months to find them all... I'll take a bow for my stupid school boy behaviour at the grand ol' age of 29. Sorry!
