  1. Vodafone

    Found this on another forum, had me in stitches! Dear All I thought I would share my ongoing, and unresolved, problems with Vodafone in case anyone had never used their crummy tax-avoiding service before. In summary, I have spoken to a total of 14 (forteen) different customer services...
  2. Question Should Paul Sturrock Resume Contract Negotiations with Liam Dickinson?

    Warm greetings to all Shrimpers from Dunedin, New Zealand! This is my first post, but I feel I have got to know many of you because I have closely followed Shrimper Zone for some time.

    Typing and not all letters coming out

    Anyone else getting problems when typing posts and not all the letters you type are coming out? All of a sudden it'll cut out for a few letters and then resume and then cut out again. I type at a decent speed, but not so quick that the computer can't recognise the keys! At times only every other...

    Sri Lanka v England 3rd test at Galle

    Looks like thats it for the day. I've popped into a nearby internet cafe in case they decide to resume, but given there's now a spot of rain that's highly unlikely. Not sure what to make of today. I assume England won the toss and elected to field, but from my vantage point above the new gate...

    One to Start the Weekend (week 9)

    As Dave's on holiday I've been made caretaker manager of his "One to Start the Weekend" slot. First thing I thought when browsing YouTube for some classic tunage was "how on earth does he pick just one song each week?", so as the cat's away I'm going to spoil you with "Three to Start the...

    The fbm view and ratings

    BRIGHTON ROCK AS LATE SHOW SEALS BLUES PASSAGE Southend made heavy going of their 2nd round Carling Cup tie against Brighton at Roots Hall this evening, but in the end it was a naive managerial decision by Albion caretaker boss Dean Wilkins that showed Blues the way.  Tilly had made 2 changes...

    ..McCormack has another good game tommorow and his performance turns out to be influential to our win? Do you think Tilson would stick to his policy of "if you perform and impress, you keep your place in the starting lineup" - Or would Maher just come back and resume his duties as...
