    SZ Novella - Chapter Six

    Chapter Six - South Of The ShrimperZone? At This Time Of Night? Ricey edged away from Stokes, carefully keeping his eyes shielded from the Red Tube. As tempting as it was to allow himself to wallow in the intense glow of some very, very naughty thoughts, he knew from...well...erm, first hand...

    SZ Novella - Chapter Five

    Chapter Five - Red Sky At Night, Stokes' Delight Ricey sprinted down the back-alley, feet slipping and sliding on the wet concrete as he went. The sound of a gunshot echoed off the walls and he instinctively ducked, almost falling to the ground. Reaching the end of the passageway, he turned...

    Chapter Four - We Fade To Grays "Old Blue Lady," grinned Shackleford as she approached the table, holding Ricey carefully by the earlobe. "You came." Old Blue Lady lowered her squirming guest gently onto a barstool and stepped away, leaving him clutching his ear in annoyance and glaring up at...

    SZ Novella - Chapter One

    Inspired by the truly awesome work of the Shrimperzone Writer's Bureau, I've been clattering away on a full version of this dystopian nightmare, attempting to give it the depth that it deserves. MK Shrimper planted a bug in my head and I really hope that I can do it justice, not least because...
  9. Breaking News Ron's blog 24/02/09

    Whilst the rest of us were watching the match, Ron was emailing us his latest thoughts: I want to begin this week by thanking all our supporters who were able to attend the match at Colchester this weekend. The 1800 or so who made the journey across Essex showed, once again, what passion is...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - David Webb

    For 84 years Southend was a team that bounced around the lower divisions. The opening words of the official club history are: "Other teams dreamt of Wembley, some hankered for the first division championship or a place in Europe - but Southend only ever wanted second division status." We'd...

    Chelsea Need To Look In The Mirror

    Mike Riley may have cost them the game, but it is Chelsea's under-performing superstars who have cost themselves the title. Even before the ludicrous dismissal of Frank Lampard, the Blues had barely threatened Liverpool's goal and some of their players need to ask themselves some serious...

    Boring Boro Fall To Chelsea

    The Chelsea rehabilitation continues, but the road to recovery is never easy. This, the fourth consecutive win since their violation at the hands of Manchester United, takes them to second place in the table, but they were certainly made to work for it by a Middlesbrough side who were...

    You Lucky *******s

    Only Tottenham could make such a simple task so ludicrously difficult. Only Tottenham could take an unloseable game and almost throw it away. Harry Redknapp has booked his place at Wembley for a second season running, but he won't kid himself that his team deserves it. Two late goals from Roman...

    Pietersen gone?

    Reports are suggesting Pieterson has stepped down as captain following his row with Peter Moores. This seems to have been prompted by reports both were to be sacked. With the ashes coming up this year I find it a shame as I wouldnt really want our best batter disrupted or unhappy with his...

    Sir Alex Ferguson's relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo.

    Likening your guidance, as an employer, to the counsel of a father is a tactic that very few football managers could get away with, but what might sound melodramatic and over-familiar in some cases is perfectly suitable for Sir Alex Ferguson's relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo. "If you are...
