    A well-preserved mammoth has been discovered in (I think) Siberia. Apparently it is so well preserved its DNA could be used to clone a new mammoth! Should it happen....?

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Portsmouth

    I'll start this one early. A few years ago this would have been a mammoth task against top premier league opposition, but pompey are now a club in crisis having drop down the football league pyramid like a stone. I don't think pompey will go down but it will be a huge disappointment to there...

    A considered opinion

    There is an air of inevitability about defeat against Bradford on Friday evening, and when (not if) this occurs the time for big decisions will have been reached. That will be six games without a win, and, at least 12 without a good performance. For a team that was top of the league, two games...

    Can the club ever win?

    Well, as we near the end of another season, it is yet again time for reflection on what has been, what might have been, looking forward to what will be and - for a large majority of people - putting on their hindsight googles and viewing how it should have been. In my view we have had yet...

    Question What are you reading?

    Perhaps not quite as Facebook friendly as what music are you listening to but I imagine a few Zoners might be interested to know what their fellow Shrimpers are currently reading. To get the ball rolling I'm presently enjoying Ian Sinclair's mammoth "Hackney,That Rose-Red Empire". It's an...

    Supermarkets - What can be done to control their power?

    I've worked at, and for, a supermarket in the past and at first I thought all the scaremongering about 'Supermarket Power' was merely that. However, right now there are many, many things are I am becoming increasingly disillusioned by: • Supermarkets initially made money by using brands to get...

    World Series of Poker

    Finished this morning in London after a mammoth final table session. John Juanda eventually managed to beat the painfully slow (at times) Stanislav Alekhin. The Russian had played extremely well to build up a solid chip lead but after Juanda had bullied some of Alekhin's raises, it came down...

    Keeping some perspective

    I can't wait for tomorrow, it should be good. Well, except for the Roots Hall tea, but that's a given pain I will continue to bear until my memory starts working on match days. But I do find it odd that from the depths of despair 3 days ago we now have about 150 posts regarding our new arrivals...

    Injured in the throes of passion?

    My mate at work, as been limping and walking around all today,and yesterday due the mammoth session which involved" rabid copulation" that took place with his partner on Monday. He told me this morning that basically he feels that in the throws of passion he felt some thing give and as been...
  12. All singing from the same song sheet?

    I cannot believe that Steve Tilson and Paul Brush are 100% behind the recent events at Roots Hall. If some of the mentioned players do depart, it will leave the management team with a mammoth task to repace them, on maybe comparatively low wages. Be very careful Mr Martin, the day may come...

    The Blue Voice: Destination Championship

    This article will be in the Vale programme, so you guys have the pleasure (or not!) of reading exclusively first!... I have highlighted in RED the main points of interest. Apologies for the length. The lads have performed miracles in the second half of the season and have secured a...

    Internet keeps cutting out.

    After the mammoth saga with my dodgy computer I have been feeling a bit bored as since November my computer has been working perfectly. Which means I've had nothing to moan about. However since Orange took over Wannadoo around Dec' (my ISP) they increased my speed from 1Mb/s to 4Mb/s I have...
  16. Wow!

    The Aussies posted a mammoth 434-4 (Ponting 164 off 105 balls) after their 50 overs, beating the previous biggest ODI score by 39 runs. Now then, you'd think that would be enough to secure the match and series and after losing Dippenaar at just 3-1 it looked that way. However, Gibbs and...
  17. Official site

    What is the point of the official site if it cannot be bothered to update at crucial times?. I know it is the weekend but thats when football is at its peak. I have logged on for some team news or up to date positive comments or even an injury list, but no, zip! I thought we were to believe...
