    Memory Lane Those Away Trip Pub Stops

    Right, having dissected the match for about 10 minutes in the pub after the game, conversation turned to those great pub stops back in the day. We talked vividly about the trip back from the 2-0 FA Cup win at Bournemouth in 1982, where we pulled up at what turned out to be The Caxton Arms in...

    Browns time must be up!

    I never thought he was one of "Us"..He just fitted a bill of RM's picture. As usual RM promised him the earth with dreams of the new stadium etc...In fairness RM has backed him to the hilt these past few seasons with money for old timers. I have always felt he was Rm's Doppelganger..RM loves to...
  3. Lift up your top Ladies, and show us your Bra. Said the stewards.

    So Grimsby were playing at Stevenage in August. Some Stevenage stewards were asking the Grimsby Ladies and young Ladies to lift up or open their tops to show if pyrotechnics were hidden in their Bra's. This all sounds a bit perverted by the stewards as I'm sure they wouldn't have been instructed...
  4. Plumbing advice needed.

    Thought i'd ask on here, before phoning someone ( fingers x! ). Son currently lives alone in family house since my 'estranged' passed away. He spends time away re his job. When he does this & no water is being used in the house, after a couple of days the overflow pipe under the gutter...
  5. The Big Dady


    Is the Zone protected from the latest ransomware called "WannaCry" that attacks Windows operating systems and infecting them around the world? Serious question, as I do not want to loose my Shrimpers football fix. Is this Pandemic which has now spread to over 100 countries, is it that...

    Microsoft Office v the free stuff

    My 2003 version of Office has finally reached the point where I can't install it on my Windows 10 laptop as it's been installed on far too many other laptops over the years. So.......what to do, buy a recent edition of Office or have a look at free packages. I've chosen the latter option and...

    Question Travel to Malaysia

    A question for those who are much more seasoned travellers than I am, to help my daughter out. She's travelling out to Malaysia next month with her father for a visit, which includes a wedding (her dad's mum is Malaysian so there's a lot of family out there). It's difficult for her to take...

    Happy Birthday to ........

    Bob Cratchitt if still lurking. Oh and me :smile: The BIG 50 today. Honoured my last day in the forties by playing football, our season has started. I don't celebrate birthdays. Not miserable but I think it is second only in being overrated as an event to New Year's Eve. I do celebrate other...

    Question Wot no carrot tops?

    Just a quickie, do we have any "gingers" in the 1st team playing squad? If no, there lies the problem! These rusty nuts are like five leafed clover. I reckon we need to get Ron's son down to Boots and Laces to kick a few balls. He fits the bill and better still, he has a Kevin Keegan perm...

    Windows 10 - Good, bad or indifferent?

    So far I have only managed to upgrade one of the household's 3 laptops to Windows 10, that was from 8.1. The one with Windows 7 on does all the early stuff, downloading etc and then fails with permissions failure when trying to install. The third and final laptop has Windows 8 on it so can't go...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United vs Southport 1974

    'Alright lads. Big game coming up Friday night. Just back from the High Street. Popped in Owen Wallis but they still haven't got the new Battling Tops in.:thumbdown: Also got some new clobber from Mr Byrite for the game. Should be a good one. Anyone else going?

    Let the train take the strain?

    So I've just started at a new job and am trying to work out what will be my best commute. There are two decent options for the journey from Hemel Hempstead to Camden. Option 1 - short drive to my local station (buses in Hemel are infrequent and unreliable), pay for parking, get a train to...
  13. BoyWonder2


    I'm after a little bit of help, and was hoping someone amongst us knows more about laptops than me. I'm looking to get one that will be suitable for web surfing, playing the odd game (FM 2015), storing music and photos, that can have Microsoft Office installed and isn't too expensive. Ideally...

    Interesting Sun Newspaper Facts

    According to the current bun, we have amassed 132 shots with 60 being on target We top the table by 5 with total shots and are 4 shots off top for on target.(takes L1 & L2 into account) For a team that has scored 12 goals in the league this is pretty poor but Fleetwood , second with 127 have...
  15. Shrimperzone away tickets idea/help??

    So away tickets might be a bit of a nightmare. Especially for non seaso/shareholder exiles. I'd happily pay a bit more if someone was able to go down to the office and pick up tickets and meet outside the ground. It could be arranged via SZ/PayPal and an 'admin fee' could go towards SZ running...

    Can anyone recommend a good supplier / fitter of granite worktops? Cheers

    Refereeing questions.

    1. Why in the milwall game didn't the fourth official hold up the board with 25 added minutes? 2. In a penalty shoot out, when is the ball deemed to be dead? Reason I ask, there are clips on youtube in which the ball hits the bar, whizzes into the air (cue goalie celebration) yet the ball comes...
  18. Latest Rumours Sturrock to Torquay?

    Despite his links to Plymouth, Luggy has already been linked to the vacant manager's position at Torquay after they sacked Alan Knill yesterday. He is living back down there and would be a decent appointment for them. He would be linking up with Benyon again should he join. Sturrock tops a list...
  19. Universally respected groups - The Beatles

    As per the other thread, I personally would find it bizarre that people wouldn't like the 4 Mop Tops from Liverpool - there's surely something for everyone? Simple poll, do you like The Beatles? And if not, why not? What's not to like?
