  1. Car Tax

    With the changes being implemented in October i believe as you will no longer have a physical disc to display, my question is : Isn't about time this was abolished perhaps in favour of adding a couple of pence per litre to fuel to cover the shortfall in revenue? My reasonings behind this are...

    Pre-Match Thread Stevenage (H)

    Thought i would get it going Based on the last two games i would go for: Bentley White, Prosser, Bolger, Coker Worrall, Leonard, Clifford Hurst, Barnard, Weston Think it will be a tough, physical game as is the norm with Stevenage. think Barnard after yesterday should get the nod over Corr...
  3. Looking back and forwards

    Quite impressed with Phils interview before going to Spain - at the least physical preparation of the squad has improved noticably under him.... perhaps a slight short coming of Sir Steves.... Sir Steve pops into my mind every time the manager of Brasil, Scolari, show up on the box - remember...
  4. Ref Watch ......... Hull Cup 4th round

    The referee for Saturday's big match is Lee Mason from Bolton (which is, of course, in Greater Manchester as Brendan Rodgers reminds everyone each time he referees Liverpool v a Manchester team - well not each time actually - only when Liverpool lose!). A Select Group referee since 2006, he is...

    Southend United's Phil Brown: Northampton Town will be a physical test

    NORTHAMPTON Town will provide us with a different kind of challenge this weekend and it’s one we’re going to have to stand up to. More...

    Start to the season

    Well here we are after the first few games of the Brown era. The ethos certainly seems to that of a hard working physical side that likes to play football when in possession. Many posters on here (including myself) had concerns about the back four as well as the possibility of our front two not...

    John Terry and the 'unacceptability of racism'

    Interesting updates from the trial. It's alleged that John Terry "used words based on Anton Ferdinand's membership of a racial group, allegedly said in response to a physical gesture from Ferdinand relating to his well publicised alleged affair with a teammate's wife". It's been claimed that...

    Morecambe - what changes would you make?

    After the debacle on Tuesday that can only be fully appreciated by the "Aldershot 461" (as referred to on another thread and plagiarised by me, so thanks to whoever thought of that. Sounds more like a book by Ray Bradbury!), what changes would you make to the team, either in personnel or...

    We should beat Crawley

    Went to the Crawley vs Redbridge game yesterday and really didn't see anything to fear. The 5-0 scoreline flattered them. Redbridge had done very well to get to round 2 but they are a very poor team and they actually managed to play some half decent football against Crawley in periods, this is...
  12. Does PS rate Sawyer or not ?

    So just what is the real reason PS won't play Sawyer ? Last night he brings on Mohsni with full knowledge that he isn't in either the correct mental or physical condition to play but leaves Sawyer out of the starting 11 again. Interesting how we get statements about Mohsni's issues but the...
  13. Can a footballer learn to control anger?

    Or for that matter can any human being learn to control anger? Well the simple answer is yes we can learn to control anger. But in general anger cannot be managed simply by someone trying harder next time to avoid getting angry (as some seem to think). I have never heard of footballers...

    Depression/Anxiety - Another Thank You

    Some months ago now I come onto this website and was very open and honest about how depression/anxiety was overtaking my life. Part of the reason was to get back into the swing of things on Shrimperzone and let people know where I have been but the other was to seek feedback and opinions on the...
  16. Gary Neville

    Couldn't put it better myself Oliver Kay On Thursday 3rd February 2011, @OliverKayTimes said: A 1,000-word tweet dedicated to Gary Neville, the great overachiever ... There was, it is fair to say, a lively response last night when, in tribute to Gary Neville, I called him "one of world...

    England Flatter To Deceive

    NOTHING FOR ENGLAND TO SHOUT ABOUT Forget about the result, this was not a good night for England. Fabio Capello has much to ponder before he makes his final squad selection for the World Cup. A 3-1 victory over a side of Mexico’s quality is a fine result on paper, but the performance that went...

    My worry for next season.

    Speaking to a lot of fans on saturday I was suprised by the amount of people that think were going to find it easy in L2 next season. Ron Martin kind of said the same in his "Morecombe" interview. I cant help but think Tilson is going to need a team of fighters next season. Having seen a lot of...

    FM2010 (iPhone) Review

    When I was young I used to dream, not of a career in professional football, or of great riches or even of a date with Kim Wilde. Nay, those were the dreams of weaker folk. I dreamed of a portable 'Tracksuit Manager', that mid 1980s Spectrum classic. I dreamed of whiling away long car journeys to...
  20. Shut Up Wenger...

    When Ryan Shawcross trudged off the field in tears, the last thing the lad needed was to be hounded by a sense of indignation from Arsene Wenger and a loud collage of journalists and Arsenal fans alike. So, imagine the disgust when the pitch forks and stakes came out... The challenge itself...
