    Slipperduke's Slippery Euro08 Coverage

    I thought I'd wander out over here for the next few weeks, as it's all going to get a bit busy. Here's the first of many..... He may be the best player in the world, but Cristiano Ronaldo certainly isn't the smartest. His refusal to pledge his loyalty to Manchester United has led to intense...

    Bristol City v Hull City

    There can’t be many people who, when the Championship season began, thought that today’s SG$120m Play-Off Final would be contested between newly promoted Bristol City and almost relegated Hull City. In fact, if you’d have asked an expert, or even if you’d just have asked me, you’d have been told...

    Northampton - from an ex-exiled shrimper!

    Evening all, I don't post on any messageboards anymore but browse from time to time and use to post on here a bit. Anyway, I've been away travelling for a year or so, Swansea was first game since being back, and today my second. To maybe give a bit of perspective I thought I'd leave my thoughts...

    Chelsea scramble through

    Chelsea scrambled into the semi-finals of the Champions League with a 2-0 victory over Zico's Fenerbahce that was anything but comfortable, either for the club or for those unfortunate enough to be watching. The continual criticism of their minimalist style of football can be tedious, but you...

  9. Ref Watch .... Crewe

    After Danny McD actually came up trumps with a decent performance, we are back to a first year referee (albeit slightly older than most first year referees these days). Man in charge at Gresty Road is Andy Haines from Tyne and Wear. It will be his 22nd League match and the first 21 appear to...

    They said what now?

    Good god what a slow morning, some of these made me laugh. "I've got all the passion, but no idea of tactics. I'd be like a black Kevin Keegan" - Ian Wright, when asked if he'd be interested in the England job. "I hear Glenn Hoddle has found God. That must have been one hell of a pass." - Bob...

    Least boneable Spice Girl?

    So as to move away from all the arguements on other topics I have gone back to the lowest common denominator - Who would you least like to bone. Before you are the five spice girls - But who is the runt of the litter. I know it is tempting to vote for Emma to get revenge on ORM for all this...
  16. The True Embarrassment

    I never thought id see the day when i became disgusted withthe majority of my own fans - especially on Shrimperzone. The number of people on here who are telling Col******r fans to stay away and not to comment is completly childish and really does tarnish a club's fanbase who on the whole...

    Orient Promoted

    Following Borient's 3-0 demise last night history suggests they will win promotion. If memory serves me last season a newly promoted League One side took on and lost at the same stage of the Carling Cup to a newly relegated Premiership side 3-0. The game was shown live on Sky, the score line...
