    Looking ahead with Phil

    So chatting to my West Ham friend and drawing obvious parrallels with Sam Allardyce and Phil Brown, no suprise as they worked together that Phil's style should draw many similarities. Both managers have really racked up the wins and points when their squad and more importantly their best players...

    How British are you?

    Try this quiz and find out. http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/quiz/2014/jun/10/how-british-are-you-values-quiz-michael-gove Apparently (and rather to my suprise) "Excellent. Thanks to your comprehensive obliviousness and disregard for others, you’re very British."

    My missus has a old family friend who does house clearance and is a sometime antique dealer. He is also seriously mad as a brush and can bore for Britain but his heart is in the right place. He seems to have taken a shine to my kids and always sends something to them on birthdays and christmas...

    Home Form...no real suprise?

    Having posed a question on the forum today as well as poking my nose into other interesting threads - I have to say that the huge gulf in opinions on here (no bad thing) does lead to verbal jousting. Myself being easily sucked into that too..having entered with the express aim of not doing so...

    Ron Martin.

    Firstly, please appreciate I expect a barrage coming my way. However, I have to ask. As I have been mostly living abroad in the recent past (am back home in Southend wheeheeyy) I have followed The Shrimpers from afar. I see results, read match reports and new items and keep up with the gossip...
  9. Ron Manager

    Greetings from a chuffed exile

    It's been ages since I've posted on here, not that I've stopped supporting of course. I still read the forum regularly but not being able to watch the team I find it hard to contribute with anything meaningful. But have to express my delight (and suprise if I'm honest) at being top of the...

    Pikey/Cheap food that is actually ok?

    As many of you may recall I took over the shopping duties from the Mrs about a year ago. It wasn't an easy decision for us to reach but it was the right one. The basic problem is I would spend say £100 and come back with loads of meats, pasta,rice,veggies etc - where as the Mrs would come back...

    My betting dilemma

    Ladies and Gentleman, At the start of the season I decided to put £25 into a betting account with William Hills. As an incentive from them I also got a free £25 bet too. I decided to do my first bet and take a simple one so as to get me started with a small profit so I had £25 on Liverpool to...
