    How lucrative for the Shrimpers Trust is the affiliate scheme?

    Hi Quick question for someone in the know at the trust. How lucrative is the "buy.at" affiliate scheme for the trust? I'm working with a charity who are investigating something similar and wanted to know if it was worth the bother. If you want to keep this off the forum, you can e-mail me...

    2022 World Cup

    This BBC blog makes Convictland favourites to host the 2022. I just can't see it myself. 1. Financially - A US world cup is that much more lucrative than an Australian one. 1994 was the most profitable World Cup ever. The historical strength of the dollar, the size of the US stadiums, the...
  4. The Idiot's Guide to Shrimperzone and SUFC

    Welcome to the Idiot's Guide to Shrimperzone and SUFC. There is a clear need for this guide, as we have so many "newbies" (see guide) joining, and many of our regular members seem to have become confused as to the purpose of Shrimperzone. This is guide is intended to be expanded, and people are...

    West Ham. Not Good.

    WEST HAM ARE DOOMED After the excitement and drama of the weekend, here was the comedown. Manchester City against Manchester United was a tense, gritty battle of attrition. Tottenham against Chelsea was an explosive clash, packed with action. This was like watching a game of chicken between a...

    Best Comedy series of the 00s?

    Further to MK's thread about the state of comedy, I thought it might be good to discuss which comedy show was your favourite from the last decade. Many of the choices speak for themselves; The Office was a critical smash over here and developed the fly-on-wall feel of Ianucci / Morris' early...

    City Must Be Patient

    There's no doubt about the identity of this weekend's biggest fixture, is there? It is, as we have said many times already this campaign, 'a big weekend for Rafa Benitez'. Mind you, it's an even bigger one for Mark Hughes. After splashing more money than Victoria Beckham and Coleen Rooney...

    Cost cutting measures

    Ok, so let's assume we are in administration, and, in these serious times, Let's have your best (legal or Illegal) cost cutting measures just for fun! Please NOT getting rid of the Blue belles. But any other funny, serious or downright lucrative suggestions welcome. Some, any or none of the...
  9. What Becomes of the Broke and Shafted

    Someone great once said that Football isn't a matter of life or death, it's much more than that. Which would explain the pain felt by those when their football club is ripped away from them. As a Southend United supporter, I've had the good grace of never witnessing non-league football and...

    Dwight Yorke - Born to Score

    BORN TO SCORE? What would you do if you were a professional footballer? How would you act? I know what you're going to say, you're going to say the same as me. You're going to say that you'd give it everything. You're going to say that you'd be tee-total, that you'd train hard, that you'd...
  11. ESB's Champions League Run Down

    It's that time of year again. The time when the Giants of European football clamour together for one big orgy of tactical football and self-congratulation. yes, it's the Champions League group stages, and here is my run down of the groups and who to look out for. Group A On the face of it...
  12. Can of Worms Opened, Europe turns on the Premier League Bully Boys

    Like the Headmaster at a School, FIFA are now rounding up the bullies of the football world and taking them to task... Manchester City the latest club to be investigated for illegal transfer activity. When Lens were succesful in their pursuit of a just punishment for Chelsea FC over the Gael...

    FIFA Spank Chelsea

    When the Powers That Be come after the English clubs, they certainly don't mess about. Last week UEFA slapped Arsenal's Eduardo with what appeared to be an arbitary two-match ban for diving and last night FIFA weighed in, smashing Chelsea to the floor with an unprecedented two transfer window...

    Perez is Real-y Wrong

    Fresh from capturing the signatures of Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka, Florentino Perez is now bent on global domination, according to reports in Spanish football newspaper, AS. It has been claimed that the Real Madrid President is rapidly drawing up plans to shift his club's kick-off times from...

    Question Johnny Herd

    Could someone please fill me in on what is the latest regarding JH. The guy put in some very competent displays against Chelski and Weeds and his long throw gave us an extra attacking option (and helped us earn a very lucrative cup replay). He is one of the few players we have who can put...

    Maybe Just A Shandy

    Harry Redknapp has always had a slightly jaundiced take on modern football. He doesn't care much for vitamin supplements and sports psychology, he'd rather talk old fashioned motivation than 'visualisation' and he doesn't feel bad about swearing at his players. Earlier this season I saw him...

    The Apprentice - week 1

    Whoever the 16th person was who "bottled it" before the tv stage, he enjoyed more air time than the majority of those on the men's team - Howard excepted. Tonight was all about the meltdown in the girls' team. Stepping up to the plate in week 1, Mona (surely the a and n are the wrong way round?)...

    Rusty Shackleford's X-Files: SUFC Special

    I thought I would depart from the normal RSXF theme of carl, steveo and I arguing with all the Godless lefties and discuss something which really doesn’t belong in the Pub section – my view on the current state of Southend United, both on and off the field. Steve Tilson has presided over one...

    ...Chain Reaction is a song by Diana Ross. Ross was the front for The Supremes. Supreme were the Kings of coaches and they served Southend United for years. kings wear crowns and David Crown played for Southend during the 1987-89 season when the Blues beat Derby County over two legs only to lose...

    Question Interactive Novel Writing

    Ok, bit of a weird one this. I have here the first 1,500 words of a story, battered out in an afternoon to no distinct end or conclusion. It's a first draft, it hasn't been polished or checked and, critically, it doesn't have a direction. I was thinking of a British version of Lost/Journey To...
