  1. Rigsby

    This forum is significantly the poorer for not having Rigsby giving Brown's take on stuff. Rigsby was stroppy, disagreeable and generally wrong but always interesting. Great shame.

    A team where we got the lesser known relative

    Seeing Yorkies Mac Thread , and always having a thing about us getting the poorer relative, here is my 11 Daryl Flahavan Bob Worthington Peter Watson Tom Jordan Frank Lampard Colin Morris Terry Nicholl Alan Little Tes Bramble Danny Greaves Jimmy Shankly Subs Chris Guthrie Dave Worthington...
  3. Long overdue!

    There was I thinking Social Media provided everything I needed when I finally realised there was even more to be gained from being a part of ShrimperZone too! Attending games since the seventies, when you could rattle around the enormous south bank and watching the European Champions Liverpool...

    10 games in...

    So at the beginning of the season most say let's wait till 10 games to see where we are, and here we are. Lots of doom forseen early on in the season which isn't surprising since we didn't win a game in August so how do people think we are doing against their expectations? Obviously after 3...

    The Rich get Richer whilst the Poor get Poorer.

    Hardly a surprise really but shocking stats none the less and it''s not even from a left wing paper :winking: Britain's divided decade: the rich are 64% richer than before the recession, while the poor are 57% poorer...

    James Blunt and the Jealous Shadow Minister

    Anyone else see this? Chris Bryant,the shadow Culture Minister took a direct swipe at James Blunt by name dropping him while bitching about too many people from boarding school backgrounds being in music, films and TV, etc. Blunt rightly took offence and below is his reply...
  7. Fat Gary Barlow

    Naughty boy. Always thought was a bit of a dick. Looks like he's going to be quite a lot poorer now. Should he have his OBE taken away? I don't think tax avoidance is in keeping with the principles of getting an honour like that.

    Sports Personality of the Year 2012

    So the shortlist was announced last night, I'm sure there will be a few on here complaining about the number of Paralympians on it. In such a great sporting year there was always going to be some notable names left out even though it's been extended to 12, but I think if any of those shortlisted...

    My thoughts..for what they are worth...

    Firstly, I am more disappointed tonight than I can remember being as a Southend United supporter ...and that includes relegations and watching much, much poorer teams. I am eating a Sainsbury's Cheese & Tomato sandwich when I should be celebrating. A great many of you will have more valid...

    My Theory for Promotion.

    I have a theory that you only have to beat the poorer sides to win promotion. If you were to lose against the top 8 clubs but beat the bottom 15 sides home and away you would have 90 points enough for automatic promotion and possibly the title. In the last 7 years in League 2 ninety points would...

    Death of the Euro?

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/comment/jeremy-warner/8913884/Death-of-a-currency-as-eurogeddon-approaches.html What do people make of the ongoing Euro crisis, could it really all come crashing down? I'm pretty ignorant to the cause and effect of financial crisis, but it appears to me...

    Teaching Assistants - no good!

    Apparently Teaching assistants are a waste of time and teaching on the cheap! Teaching assistants 'do not help improve grades', report into Pupil Premium spending finds Teaching assistants have 'no effect' on improving grades, an influential report has suggested. A study into how best to...
  13. The problem with football...

    Hi all...these days I usually respond to threads something around 7-pages in which takes about 2 seconds thought and isn't very serious, just the usual tired crap of taking the **** out of RM, (which lets face it isn't hard, I mean every time he opens his mouth to the press it's bloody hilarous...

    Most amazing match I've ever seen

    I'll always be a Shrimper first and foremost and if they ever played Brisbane I'd be wearing blue not orange. However yesterdays Grand Final is the most amazing bit of drama I've ever seen at a football match in my 30 years of going to games. For anyone who didn't get up at 6am to watch it on...

Apparently when they signed Kamil Zayatte from Young Boys for £2.5M on 23 January this year, there had been...

    PL Weekly Points Round 49

    Another pretty average week tbh ... though i think we've been spoilt by some excellent predictions lately, so when we have a below average week like this the scores seem poorer than they probably are Hats off to Drastic Sturgeon and Brettie Angell for sharing top billing anyway, with Ozzer...

    Volunteering

    I am almost finished at Uni and when I leave in a few months I will be taking a gap year to earn some money and go travelling. However, I would also like to do some volunteer work in some poorer, less fortunate countries. I have looked at a few charity websites at their opportunities but just...

    Young Guns Hit Five

    There is a swagger about Arsenal in Europe this year. Since the inception of the Champions League, the Gunners have struggled to take their domestic form with them when they go to the airport, reaching the final just once and crashing out early every other year. In that same time Manchester...

    Faith Schools

    Apparently there is to be a new report out on Monday trying to persuade Ed Balls to get rid of faith schools (including Catholic, CoE as well as Jewish, Muslim, Sikh, and even Greek Orthodox and Seventh Day Adventist). BBC Radio Essex have asked me to briefly speak on their Sunday morning show...
