    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...

    Question Does BarnaBlue talk bollocks?

    http://www.shrimperzone.com/vb/showthread.php?64961-Does-Cyberbullying-exist-on-SZ/page9 Barnablue reckons that there are only half a dozen people that think he talks bollocks. I reckon twenty. Private poll, so nobody feels peer pressure from either side :hilarious:

    Southend's 4 goal plus wins

    Your memory plays tricks, but I seem to remember in my younger days that we would thrash sides on a regular basis compared todays scraping through by a single goal, but is this true or is just my rose tinted glasses? Below I've listed every victory by four goals or more since 1958 (apolgies...

    I have to wonder...

    We, as fans of a lower league club, often complain (well, moan) about the way the lower leagues are pretty much shafted by the television stations. Yes, the BBC has a deal to show X amount of Championship games and their lower league highlights show is most certainly better than that piece of...

    It's Official: Southend United Owe The Taxman Less Than A Week's Wages

    Details are now emerging of the frankly obscene deal that took Barcelona bit-part player Yaya Toure to Manchester City. The £24m transfer fee is nothing out of the ordinary for the money-no-object clubs. What is the real shocker is the weekly wage of £221,000 given to an average top-flight...

    Bad Korea Vs Ivory Coast

    Ivory Coast need a 9 or 10 goal swing in their favour and Portugal to lose to go through, and twenty minutes in, they've scored two, hit the woodwork twice and had one rules out for offside. This will be much better than Brazil vs Portugal.

  12. Only one man to blame.......

    I'm not even worried about relegation now, as far as I'm concerned we're down and I don't blame Tilson or the players one bit. How the hell can we expect the playing and coaching staff to be motivated when we're not paying them??? The way Ron Martin has shockingly mis-managed our beloved club -...

    Harry's Nostalgia - North Bank Memories

    With the imminent return to the North Bank, albeit for two games I thought I'd share a few memories with you, while I still have them that is. Firstly though a big well done to Smiffy, TrueBlue and all the others who have worked hard to achieve this. :clap: From the first day I stepped into...

    Question What are 'the consortium' waiting for ?

    Twenty something days left to save the club yet we still await full details of the so called consortium's identity and proposals. What is stopping them from revealing these to the fans ?

    Jose - Up Close and Personal

    Jose Mourinho smoulders. I wanted to get through this feature without writing anything that might worry my new wife, but there you go, I’ve blown it in the first line. But he really does. He smoulders. He walks into the sweaty, over-crowded press room and sits there in front of the lights...

    Kids Just Don't Know Their Born

    While having a wonder around the shop today it suddenly struck me just how little kids know of the real world and what they are missing out on. It started when my missus mentioned our niece and how it must cost her mum a fortune so she can wear all the clobber and make-up yet she hasn't two...

  19. 50 games which defined a decade - Part 1 (2000-2004)

    As we've had our last game of the decade, I had planned to do something about the top twenty matches of the ten years just gone but I found it very difficult to leave some matches out, plus in truth it's some of the defeats which have stuck with me the most. And rather than doing a countdown I...
