  2. Paul Smith - thankyou

    People know I'm a big smithy fan. Last week I sent a letter to Paul Smith 'fan mail' i sent it to roots hall and to my delight this morning a pair of his gloves were sent to me. With a message to Neil best wishes signed Paul Smith. Top bloke. Thankyou.

    Anyone remember the last time a popular Scottish manager was fired?

    Dave Smith in about 1983 or 84. In his case - he also didn't just leave. Rather than being asked back "a la PS" he refused to acknowledge the decision and continued to turn up for work every day for a couple of weeks. Fantastic! Sacked, absolutely no influence, no work load ...but still went to...
  4. Ron and Phil.

    Hats off to PS,Good job under difficult circumstances. In fairness to Ron he has only sacked 2 managers in 10 years so RM deserves plaudits for not pressing the manager panic button! PB will he appease the fans by making Freddy the skipper,corner taker,and the only blue allowed to score?.Will...
  5. Paul Smith - deserves mention.....

    Smithy has been superb this past month and has proven what a good keeper he is. To have kept so many clean sheets is no coincidence, glad to see the fans have got behind him. Long may it continue. :thumbsup:
  6. Poetry Tribute to Paul Smith

    (Ahem) Oh Smithy, They tell me you're iffy, It turns out you're great, Nice penalty save mate. Thank you. Mrs Baylock.

    Now I know how Smithy felt.

    Was making love to my wife last night and just as we were reaching the best bit, she threw me out the bed and got Daniel Bentley in. I was not happy to say the least. I walked straight out the room and didn't even high five Dan on my way out. I have now apologised for my petulant behaviour and...

Another Tilly and Brushy rollacoster, we have a new stadium being built, No we aint, Yes we have...... and today being the anniversary since my life threatening adventure in Basildon Hospital, I love the nurses! it now seems right to see who's in the frame this year...

    Our little trip to Chelsea

    I awoke at 4am in need of a wee and stumbled out of bed. One empty bladder later I attempted to get back to the land of nod, no chance. So I surfaced, got dressed and tip toed into the kitchen for a cuppa. Got bored with the telly so tormented the cat for a while by making out I was going to let...

    Interview with an Exile: Part 1 - Aberdeen Shrimper

    The life of an SUFC exile can be a lonely one at times - and one which is a difficult existence to understand for some. I thought by setting up this weekly thread, we would get the opportunity to get to know some of the exiled posters on SZ a bit better. This week, Aberdeen Shrimper goes under...
  12. Ow my god.......Just read reag through a thread on here

    Ow my god.......Just read through a thread on here I am sitting here with my wife trying to explain the Thread "Boo Boys" She does not get it at all and frankly neither do I. I tried to explain to her that Football is an emotive subject and that not only rival supporters fall out but also...
  13. Committed players

    I dunno about you lot but its so refreshing to hear Richie Foran talk about not caring whether he's on the bench or in the starting lineup as long as Southend get the 3 points and stay up. I know this could change if he didnt break into the starting lineup but after players such as Gutts...

    Absolutely disgraceful

    I have managed to somehow refrain from posting hours after the final whistle in previous weeks, purely because I felt the need to try and sit back and evaluate what I had just witnessed before saying things which werent necessary, but no more. What I witnessed this afternoon was one of the most...

    Collis 6 not much to do, one good palm away, not sure he wants the crosses either. Che 5 first half distribution awful, come in your time is up. No.2 3 don't know his name, don't wanna know his name, awful. Sodje 7 That's how you head a ball Peter Clarke, must start saturday. Prior 6...
  16. Jay Smith

    I cant belive jay hasnt started a game yet this league suits him down to the ground and we have been playing with 2 defensive midfielders for ages. I f you watch when we attack normally one midfielder should go we have none. Smithy should get a chance!!!!!!!!!
  17. palexander

    Jay Smith...

    Played 90 mins for Oxford (beat Posh 1-0) and played very well by all accounts... Snippet 'Smith, industrious throughout, blasted in a shot from twenty yards on the hour which the flying Tyler tipped away...' He had a few shots and 'deft' touches. Well done Smithy! Keep...
  18. wiggy


    Chesterfield! Why have we reverted to hoof ball with the worst headerers of a ball in the division. Flavs 6 nothing to do except watch the sh!t in front of him. Che 6 done o.k Hunt 5 got out of position and poor distribution is not quiet what we are looking for. Barrett 7 sponsors m.o.m...
  19. shrimper loz


    Is maher suspeneded for the Mk Dons game as he picked up another yellow card at Vale yesterday? If so then hopefully Smithy will be able to cement his place in the side and barrett take over the captaincy.............
  20. FIFA 2006

    Fifa 06 is improved so much this season. The manager mode is quailty, you can watch the game, and interveen, or just play the game, If you hear carefully one of the chants is "ESSEX, ESSEX, ESSEX" , but obvisouly seeing the spanish shrimpers flag and one team in essex flag made me...
