    Memory Lane John "Joe" Kurila

    I had a phone call earlier today from Billy Best who informed me that our former defender Big John Kurila had passed away aged 76. Fans of a certain age will remember John who was a tough no nonsense Scottish defender, who joined us in the summer of 1968 and played in every match of that...

    Council tax

    Need some advice. Moved into a 3 bed mid terrace new build last November and was allocated as band E. Obviously I queried this as it seemed high. Took 3 months and got told it was right. Did some research online at banding in the area and not only are my neighbours in the same build paying...

    Question 2016 - How Was It For You?

    Not spotted a similar thread so thought I'd start it for a bit of quick reflection before we properly get going with 2017. Have seen something similar I think in previous years and always find it interesting - we all have a common bond in SUFC but outside of that all have different lives with...

    Latest Rumours April fools day

    Traditionally today is a day when we poke fun at our ailing neighbours up the A12. However, I have heard some news that shows what a caring club they really are. Their Chairman, Robbie Cowling, has apparently offered to donate a large section of their little used car park for use as a...

  6. How To Fill An Empty Football Ground

    Our dear neighbours up the road are making their fans pay extra for the Spurs F.A. Cup game(Fair enough) but also making them buy tickets for their Chesterfield game on a Tuesday night, which most won't really want judging on attendances. So for example, £30 Spurs ticket plus £25 for the...

    Car Thieving Scum

    And so where do we always return...? Having had a period of lurking (partly due to the busy-ness of getting hitched on 15th Feb), I haven't been as active of late. I'm still here. And my reasons for posting? I woke up this morning to find my car stolen, from the drive. No signs of entry (broken...
  10. European music artists of any worth.

    Lets face it, most music from our European neighbours is dismal, so let's start a list of those bands/artists who's musical output is worthy of a spot for ShrimperZone's musical fascists :winking: Sweden - Abba, Wannadies, The Knife. France - Les Negresses Verte, Daft Punk. Iceland -...

    Taxing Festive Cheer - a new lowI do hope you all enjoyed the festivities over Christmas. Perhaps, like I, you drank a fine wine with friends, or smoked a cigar with your Cognac to celebrate one of the few remaining holidays the taxman allows us revenue producing drones. No sooner have we put...
  13. Latest scam, beware, very expensive.

    This is a warning from my daughters school. Can see lots of people falling for this one, unfortunately. “I have been reminded by Dorset Police of this postal scam, a particularly appropriate reminder with Christmas just around the corner. The Trading Standards Office are making people aware of...

    Hi all, I live in a 3rd floor flat, and in the last couple of days a large wet patch has appeared outside our front door (in the communal hall). Our front door has our neighbours front door next to it in an "r" shape, with our door the top of the "r". The wet patch seems to have spread right...

    after seeing the attendance of last nights England under 21's i dont think our near by neighbours will be getting any future England matches. If Southend had been given the opportunity to hold an under 21's i could guarantee we'd fill the whole ground. ONE TEAM IN ESSEX
