    Honda Civic feedback

    After selling my Fiesta TDCI Zetec S and buying a Focus Titanuim TDI, I have become bored very quickly so I have started looking at other cars. The Mk8 Honds Civic, 2006 onwards, has caught my eye. Lots of tech for the money, very nice V-Tec engine and a different look about it. The 1.8 petrol...
  2. Any of you bored should watch this

    Hi fellow shrimpers, my brother made a film few years ago which features heavily around a southend supporter, a comedy feature film which makes reference to Orient and follows his journey on making it back to getting in his team - there are 4 parts to it and it really is funny - situated in...

  4. Tenancy Advice... Damage not caused by us!

    I was looking to see if any of my fellow Shrimpers were able to offer some advice in regards to our tenancy (more for peace of mind as I think we are completely in the right). Part of our Tenancy Agreement is that we must maintain all white goods that have been supplied. Recently our washer...
  5. Famine...here we go again !

    The media now bombarding us with the "crisis" in many parts of the world with the term "children" in the forefront. Hmmmm all those charities and of course the hand outs by many countries all adds up to massive mountains of money BUT charities are pleading for another 5 billion dollars to halt...

    The Clock Ticks On

    From Mark Steyn: The world divides into those who sincerely believe in that "Coexist" sticker and those who think it's a delusional evasion. After all, if it weren't for that big Muslim crescent "C" at the front, you wouldn't need a bumper sticker at all: That peace-symbol "O"? It's Muslims...

    Full length program

    Can anyone who maybe sky+ the whole thing do a DVDs or put it on YouTube in parts? Really want to watch it all on tv and live it again from a different view. I wouldn't mind paying for a DVD if it can be done by someone.

    Indonesian Drug Executions

    I may be slightly controversial here but I'm in the let's get it over and done with camp. Before the knee jerks consider these points. Unlike some other examples the full and due legal process has been fully exhausted As travellers to many Asian countries know when you complete a landing card...
  12. with a heavy heart

    after many years with a season ticket at Roots Hall in various parts of the ground, I have had to take the tough decision to let the ticket go for next season and maybe for the next few years, with more family commitments on a Saturday and money having to used on other items I guess it was time...

The questionnaire has been split into two parts so please click...

    Last time a defender smashed in a header?

    I was wondering when was the last time we (S.U.F.C.) had a defender come forward for a set piece and thump in a header? In recent years we have had Philips and Cresswell (dare I mention Bilel? :nope:) and before that a number of defenders such as Shane Westley that you knew where a threat. And...

    A sad indictment of modernity

    Read this article from the Mail online which really saddened me. Two little girls "pretended" individually, to be lost in a shopping centre for an hour, both knew their mother was nearby and could see them, but both acted out their parts well. 616 people walked right by them!!! Only one...

    Photo editor apps?

    Does anyone know a good app (preferably free) that I can get where I can turn a photo black and white but keep certain parts of the photo colour. So for example a photo of a nice meal with a bunch of roses on table, have everything in black and white apart from the red of the roses. Thanks in...

    Welcome to the Thai League

    I couldn't make Northampton last weekend but found some local football to watch as Khon Kaen FC took on FC Phuket. The standard was pretty **** poor but the crowd (about 2500 - 3000) were really vociferous and it helped create a good atmosphere in the ground despite the sometimes haphazard...
