    My Bathroom

    Had my plumber come round last night to measure up my bathroom. Basically my current bathroom looks like it has escaped from darkest eastern europe or worse north essex. I have decided its time to update and have enlisted a family friend to do the work.I am basically having the whole thing...
  2. How others see us now...

    At the start of the season, a certain Northern manager was claiming "we should be beating the likes of Southend". Now, unless I am mistaken, we have been ceded the title by Swansea. I can see no reason why they would let us have Mcleod unless they no longer felt they could catch us at...
  3. Joke of t'day

    A Welsh man called daps buys several sheep, hoping to breed them for wool. After several weeks, he notices that none of the sheep are getting pregnant, and phones a vet for help. The vet tells him that he should try artificial insemination. The farmer doesn't have the slightest idea what...
  4. Bobby Robson autobiography

    On holiday in Durham 10 days ago, I went to a Bobby Robson signing session for his autobiography just come out. A real gent and made time to talk to everyone. Inevitably the Shrimpers were mentioned (with him being a Geordie I made sure I mentioned THAT New Years day game of course). He...

    Best and Worst in the same game award...

    The game that springs to mind for me, where I experienced the abolsute highs and absolute lows in equal measure was: Charlton Athletic The Valley 2 Apr 94 4-3 defeat Ansah (2), Hunt We'd gone 3-0 and were dead and buried... PT brought Ansah on to give us a bit more bite up front...

    Firewalls, anti virus etc.

    After moving house I have now re-subscribed to blueyonder. Because I am using a new laptop to connect to the internet I need to install new firewall, anti virus/spyware software before some Russian hacker targets my machine. I have installed the trial version of zone alarm pro as a stop gap...

    The fbm radio view

    It sounded as though we had all the possession but their direct football approach caused loads of problems. How good is it to nick a last minute goal... again! Special mentions - Jupp - had the measure of their wing back. At one point the radio guys likened it to a senior pro against a...

    I've just looked at the Rochdale highlights on Blues World. Some of the passing and movement for our 2nd and 3rd goals, plus the chances we missed, is fairly awesome. It is a real measure of how far we have come this season. We seem to be a cut above. Blue Army!
  9. * ORM *


    Forget the referee, forget Darryl and let's focus on everything from last night that demonstrates why it's sometimes fantastic to be a Shrimper. 1) The performance. Dominated the first half until the sending off. A bit cagey for 10 minutes of the second half but after that were simply...

    I have been using the C2C service now for about two months and it seems to be about one major disruption a fortnight. Is this typical of the C2C service? The FGE (One) service appeared much more reliable. I used it regularly for at least five years and would estimate that there was one major...

    Askey replaces Moss

    Following David Moss's dismissal from Macclesfield Town, chairman Rob Bickerton has wasted no time in appointing assistant manager John Askey as his replacement. The Silkmen have had a disappointing start to the season and are currently fifth from bottom, although they are level on points...
