    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Peterborough United

    There's a game tomorrow and it's against our old friends Peterborough United. I say friends. More a sort of distant cousin who we occasionally visit but don't really like that much. In fact, they're a bit of a nuisance, really. The sort of team that comes here and scores in the last minute...
  3. Benfleet A1


    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...

  6. Smith Strop again

    Just heard that apparently Paul Smith has thrown his toys out his pram again cos Bentley been picked over him, and PB is considering putting Bentley as no.1 with Ted Smith/Luke Chambers as no.2 and shipping Paul Smith out.

    New Nominations Thread

    Bollox to it then. I'll start it off - add to the list, no videos, that comes in the competition. (Mods sorry, but I'm wanting to go out in a blaze of glory in the first round and then throw my toys out of the pram like usual :smile:) 1 - Crawliano - "Sledgehammer" - Peter Gabriel
  8. Gender stereotyping kids

    Rather than pervert to JT thread, I thought I'd start a new one. Talking to the missus last night we wondered if it's possible to get a child to follow a certain path in later years because of the colour of clothes you buy, or the toys they play with. Was Jamie Oliver bought a toy kitchen as...

  10. Question Southend the new Brighton?

    Odd title but here me out.... I have done alot of work with Brighton and Hove Albion and it has dawned on me that Southend find themselves very much in the same dangerous position that Brighton did back in 1997. At the time Brighton had a Chairman called Mr Bellotti (Ron with less lushious...
  11. Revd Dr Alan McCormack

    A few points

    1) I am no less gutted than anyone about the situation we are, but really there is no need for everybody on the forum to throw their toys out the pram and moan at each other, its not going to help is it. 2) Why do people even debate about Ron Martin. As far as I am concerned, he could be the...

    ShrimperZone Board Upgrade

    As many of you are aware, we've been planning a major upgrade to ShrimperZone for some time. Rather than a minor tweak here and there, the upgrade will see a significant number of new features, widgets, gizmos, bells and whistles for all of our users and a whole host of stuff for us owners to...

    The Wet Head Shave.

    I suffer from dry scalp. I have tried everything on the market, chineses herbal remedies, shampoo's, oils, the lot but nothing makes a blind bit of differance. I would walk into a barbers for a razor cut and the very second my head was touched the entire shop would disappear in a Sibierian...
  15. Whats your fine?

    Ok, here it is, the quiz that has swept through Facebook. If you've done any of the following you add it to your tally. (note- not the AMOUNT of times you have done any of them, just if you have then add once.) Then at the end you state what your fine is... (the maximum fine is £1665) Smoked...

    Why don't I feel Christmassy yet?.....

    .....because I've realise what a ******* Santa is, that's why. I mean, aside from the dubious idea of an elderly man entering the bedrooms of sleeping children and emptying his sacks, what else does he do? Think about it: 1) Parking offences - how many parking tickets must he pick up with his...
  17. Is Basildon close to Southend ?

    I thought it was, but I must be wrong. Had to go to Toys'r'us in Basildon today to pick up something for my daughter, and I was wearing my old Southend bobble hat which has the Southend crest and S.U.F.C on the side as well. This is something I sometimes wear in London when travelling on the...

  19. The I Phone and Technology

    I like to think of myself as a young pup at 23. Even since the 90s there has been a massive development in technology from the Sega Saturn and Mega Drive to X Box and Playstation and Wii. Brick like mobile phones with children lucky to have one and perhaps parents well off to almost all...

    Ta-raa Ronaldo!

    Beep beep! Come on Ronaldo, I'll drive you to the airport myself. It's long past time you left. I've had enough of the diving, the whining, the cheating, the feigning, the petulant tantrums and the rolling around on the ground and, you know what? I doubt I'm the only one. On behalf of my fellow...
