  1. Clumsy or sinister ?

    Why do terrorists always leave their documents at the crime scene ?? 9/11 Everything was obliterated,yet a pristine passport was found. United 93 ....nothing remained at the crash site apart from the red bandana. Stade de France suicide bomber's passport was by his body. Lorry attack in France...

    Political censorship and control on facebook?

    Looks as though a post I attempted to put up concerning my right to a voice in the forthcoming referendum has been prevented from being viewed. I got a notice this morning, stating that it had been submitted for approval by an admin; since then, nothing at all. It apears you can swear as...

    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...
  4. Thailand

    Anyone else feel uneasy about this terrible event. The bomber decided to dress in stand out clothing a bright yellow top,but for me the camera operator was either eagle eyed or something slightly sinister. How on earth did the operator pick the bomber out from the crowd?He/she then captured...

    Faul McCartney

    Now, as we are all very well aware the original Paul McCartney was decapitated in a car crash in November 1966 and replaced by a (vague) lookee-likee, albeit with a different shaped face thanks to M15 intervention. Obviously the clues were all there in Beatles songs, album covers and...

    Best time ever to be a Southend fan

    As opposed to Bluebloods thread which, whilst no doubt a decent discussion point, is only going to create more negativity. Look people, if there are negative thoughts and vibes then that is what will transpire to be. If you look for a sinister motive or negative point, you will find one. It...

    A considered opinion

    There is an air of inevitability about defeat against Bradford on Friday evening, and when (not if) this occurs the time for big decisions will have been reached. That will be six games without a win, and, at least 12 without a good performance. For a team that was top of the league, two games...

    Top Gear: Alan Partridge Speaks Out

    Good column here from Steve Coogan. "As a huge fan of Top Gear. I normally regard the presenters' brand of irreverence as a part of the rough and tumble that goes with having a sense of humour. I've been on the show three times and had a go at their celebrity-lap challenge, and I would love to...

    Cheated Chelsea Lose The Plot

    It was a night that should have been memorable for the beauty of Michael Essien's opening goal, but it is a raging Didier Drogba who will linger in the mind's eye. Furious with the referee's failure to award any one of four possible penalties, he shouted and screamed in his face before being...

    Gave me a liitle chortle!

    I'm sure that upon reading this, you'll nod your head in agreement as you will all have experienced most, if not all of the scenarios listed. If you haven't you need more fiber..... The Perfect Dump Every once in a while everyone experiences the perfect dump. It's rare but a real thing of...

    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...

    Rafa's Poisonous Glow

    There is a frog in Central America, the strawberry poison dart frog, that is born bright red as a warning to predators of the poison that lurks in its blood stream. It is not the only creature whose colour signifies danger. Certain snakes, insects and the oft-spotted Rafa Benitez all share the...
  14. Zone Update Apology from "The REAL Southend United Fans"

    As a member of that Facebook group I'd just like to try and clarify a few things. Firstly it was mainly created for a laugh last year when the crowd started boo-ing our own team early in the season. The group was made to take a satirical view of the situation and show how fickle the roots hall...
  15. Question Black gunk

    Ok Shrimperzonians, have a small query... Yesterday I had an electrical fault at home that I had to rectify and when open up the junction box it was full of a tarry, black gunk. Now I've noticed this stuff in the cellar on the central heating pipes and (strangely) underneath the bath. Now I...

    Avram Grant’s so-called press conference

    When I saw the transcript of Avram Grant’s so-called press conference I wondered what all the fuss was about. That’s what he’s always like. Not for nothing does he always dress in black. Every Chelsea game I’ve covered this season, and for my sins there have been many, he shuffles into the room...

    Lowering the tone a bit here but it is an essential discussion topic IMO: To whom it may concern: Taking A Dump... I'm sure that upon reading this, you'll nod your head in agreement as you will all have experienced most, if not all of the scenarios listed. If you haven't you need more...

    Ron: The day my family home was raided by the police

    Apologies if it's already been posted, but Ron's article on the echo website makes for interesting reading... Link: http://www.echo-news.co.uk/display.var.1263579.0.the_day_my_family_home_was_raided_by_the_police.php
  19. The colour green

    I have a 5 year old boy who will be going to his 2nd Southend match on Saturday. His 1st match was at Yeovil last season, his old man decided that a big open terrace to let him run about in was infinitely preferable to begging him to sit in the same seat for 90 minutes! Anyway the game at...

    The Boxer Rebellion

    I just wanted to say I've now managed to get hold of a copy of The Boxer Rebellion's album "Exits" and it is an absolute blinder. Seeing as we have their drummer on here as a regular poster, I can thoroughly recommend it to anyone who's a bit of a music freak. Got to be...
