    The Squad of 1989-90

    Three weeks ago, The Football League Paper featured our 4th Division promotion-winning squad of 1989-90 in their Where Are They Now? feature. The article was based on Bernie Friend's book Red Card Roy, with quotes from the book from Roy, and then the article went on to report where all the...

    OD - Week 2

    Imagine this will be a pretty quiet thread today! Kev, BB and I will no doubt be refreshing our phones frequently at the Spread! Anyway, we're playing the sold up team. Annoyingly their one remaining good player is still there so I can't totally rest however we are resting HHH, Mario, BFG and...

    FC - Match 4

    Dobcross v ShrimperZone CC Handy fixture to have after a GFI, they still have an NT bowler and a few other decent players but nonetheless, it should be a reasonably safe win. Rested Mario and BFG and hopefully can win it safely inside 2 days. If they play their main bowling line up we may...
  12. Mario Balotelli: Mental

    Balotelli is quickly becoming my favourite ever Premier League player... Quickly exceeding Chris Samba in the Bat**** Mental stakes. When he's not busy wearing rival shirts for television interviews, singing rival songs in hospital or taking on Italian Ultras, he's turning up for games wearing...

    FC - Match 6

    ShrimperZone CC v Gatley A comfortable draw last time out. With the cup in mind we're attempting to draw again by resting all 5 bowlers and hoping our batsmen can last long enough. Mario and Benji play as batsmen only. PCH next two days so might be a bit tough and in attempting to get from...

    Boxing Day Pops

    Will probably give Macca a few fielding nets once Graham and Mario have popped to superb* stamina to get his secondary more in line with his bowling. Another quiet phase coming on the pop front. Bob Mcleod - 20 yo, BT Rating=40,209 RH Batsman, RM Bowler. He is a destructive player with feeble...

    FC - Match 9

    ShrimperZone CC v Zanarkand Abes 1st v 3rd, win required to set up a final week showdown with Muse for promotion. Mario at energetic, everyone else sublime (other than Graham of course). Sunny in Essex today and tomorrow so asking to bat. They have the legend that is Mcleod in their line up...

    In honour of the Gillingham manager.....

    ....can we come up with a Southend Slow XI Obviously Stimson at left-back and probably captain, pushing out Che Wilson (FACT: Che could run quicker backwards than forwards) and recent loanee, George Friend. Centre-halves - we've had a few who could be outsprinted by a crippled, asthmatic ant...
