    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...

    Rattle The Cage

    So the Wee Birdie has stopped his chirpings again after two dismal performances. I miss his Stats. and talk of 'knocking it to the right areas'. I guess he'll wait to we have another win before he raises his beak again. Well I think we should rattle his cage and get him airborne . Explanations...

    Rafa's Ridiculous Rant

    Eagle-eyed readers will know that I had Liverpool to beat Stoke 3-0 in my weekend predictions, a bold but fair shout given the collapse in form from Tony Pulis' side. What you won't know is that just three hours after filing that article, I was sat on my sofa watching Rafa Benitez's press...

    Evening Wasted On Pointless Big Cup

    Through, but only just. Chelsea survived a scare to book their place in the next round of the Champions League, but their progression was anything from straightforward on another nervy night for Luiz Felipe Scolari. Roma's victory over Bordeaux meant that this result was academic, but there was...

    Scolari Rattled

    Luiz Felipe Scolari may not be delivering the goods on the pitch, but off it he remains as dramatic as ever. In a chaotic post-match press conference, he demanded an apology from referee Mike Dean for Arsenal's opening goal and appeared to hint at a conspiracy against his team. A consummate...

    Is it Right or Wrong to complain to a moderator and request Bans?

    Or should we value their time and input and let them do the job themselves? I know that in the last week I have been "grassed" on twice publicly, possibly more privately. A quick glance in the profile messages of certain other users would suggest that there are some semi private complaints...

    Chelsea Fall To Resurgent Roma

    This wasn't in the script. Chelsea were supposed to go to Italy, ease their way past a struggling Roma side and secure their place in the knock-out stages with two games to spare. The side that had suffered five consecutive defeats and were hovering above Serie A's relegation zone were supposed...

    Stalemate at Stamford Bridge

    Apologies, it was such a rush to get this out in time that I forgot to SZ it! See if you can spot the ****-ups.... So near and yet so far. Manchester United came within ten minutes of ending Chelsea's extraordinary 85 game unbeaten run at Stamford Bridge, pegged back by that most unlikely of...

    Best Southend street entertainers.

    What is the best street act you have seen in Southend? I used to love it back in the 80's when there were lots of street artists doing robotic dancing but that seems to be a thing of the past. I saw a good one a couple of weeks ago. Two blokes dressed as native Americans. One was playing the...

    Southend United - How far have we come? Part 6

    “We’ve always said from the start that we’re not long-term football club owners.” In the middle of December 2004, Colin Wagman of Delancey Estates revealed that he had been approached by Ron Martin with the view to sell the company’s 50% stake in Southend United. Delancey had invested heavily in...

    Essex v Somerset

    Must win game in terms of promotion with Worcestershire in good form. Essex hit 252 yesterday which on the Garons wicket isn't too bad. Somerset 93-7 in reply, if we can get rid of the rest quickly and rattle up a decent second innings total we should be ok assuming the weather doesn't...

  13. Nice to hear Prior get a mention.

    There I was watching the Bayern / Chelsea game on Tuesday night when the famous stat of the only English team to beat Bayern at home was mentioned......................Norwich City. Then they went on to rattle of a few of the players who are still playing...............and yes Prior got a...
