However, I did...

    Shepherd's Bush Shrimper's Scunny Report

    Apologies for the delay with this one. Makes less depressing reading than reports of our humping in Bristol though.... It’s fair to say that the North Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire region is not a happy hunting ground for us Shrimpers. We very rarely seem to pick up points at the lovely...

    Battle of the Sitcoms - Quarter Final Draw

    Finally we're about to have the draw for the Quarter Finals ... a day later than promised, and instead of it being from the home of cricket its from the home of BLUEBLOOD ... both venues equally salubrious of course :unsure: BLUEBLOOD Junior will be drawing all the ties, so complaints should be...

    walthamstow dog track

    Having been to the Stow at the weekend and not seeing any other threads about this I have to post what a massive void the loss of this stadium will leave not just in greyhound racing but for london's sporting venues as a whole. Ok the art deco style of the main stand looks pretty dated, the...

    Great sports stadia

    Sitting at Lord's yesterday watching Middlesex vs Essex I was reminded of just how much I love the place. It's certainly one of my very favourite sports venues. Which then got me thinking...this could make a good SZ thread. So come on, favourite non-football sports stadia here please. I'd also...

    Ideal Fathers Dad Present?

    Dave the Shrimper, god bless him, has given me the choice of the following Fathers Day presents, which would you chose? 1) A serious nights drinking followed by a curry at any of London Bridges dubious venues. 2) £50 to blow in the Club shop on anything that takes my fancy 3) An away day to...

    SZ Cup

    Final: Crabby's Crunchers v ShrimperZone FC 3rd Place Play Off: Quackers v Southsea Commoners To be played at neutral venues, I propose playing the final at ORM's stadium as the outgoing champ, I assume it will be free!

    Southend Paintballing XII

    Me and my mates are going paintballing in a few weeks and have been calling venues across Sussex looking for a place to go. One bloke I spoke to said we could enter in a league which is basically a 7 a side. So my question to you would be: "Which Seven Players would you have in your...
  13. National Anthems

    Am I the only person who dislikes the National Anthem sung at venues such as Mill Stad by Opera style Singers. This infuriating scenario oringinated in the US with the Stars and Stripes being sung at Super Bowl, Boxing matches, but has now has been adopted as the norm over here for high profile...
  14. Our Last 10 League Two Games

    Yeovil Away 1-3 - Possibly the best team in the league at the moment and we may have won it! Oxford Home 4-0 - Oxford had there chances in the first half, but we murdered them in the second! Northampton Home 2-1 - Possibly only deserved a draw at best from this one! Shrewsbury Away...
  15. Queen are rubbish

    Amid all this talk of whether or not it's a good idea to have the fans playing kazoos/drums/trumpets/etc I can think of one musical idea that is most definitely NOT good. Playing "We Will Rock You" by Queen during the half-time interval. It's an awful song, they're an...
