    Money advice needed with administration

    Hi, I don't know if anyone can help with this but I recently put a substantial deposit down for a bed in Paul Simon with the rest to be paid over interest free credit. This was due to be delivered last month but the flat we are moving into wasn't finished so we delayed delivery. We called to...
  2. Question Why Bother?

    This may result in some "abuse" and of course, its possible this will be moved, which is understandable. I just wasn't sure of the best place to post this question...but just a quick question regarding Pre-match threads... Do i carry on with them or not? I thought i would start doing them...

    Decorating issue

    Had a load of work done including some plastering but some walls were ok so I painted them with emulsion. Wasn't happy with the finish on one wall s sanded it off. when I repainted it a load of tiny bubbles appeared in the paint, anything from 1mm to 3mm diam. Sanded it off and decided to wash...
  4. Another Shrimper Leaves us.

    I heard tonight of another Shrimper who has passed away. Derek Crabb died today shortly before his 80th birthday. He wasn't a member of the Zone but had been a fan for many many years, attending games until ill-health stopped him. He did make it to Wembley last year which, like many of us, was...

    Very important second half

    I know it wasn't a win, but to come back from 2-0 down against a team unbeaten in 19 and us without winning in 9 feels like we've turned a corner. The team has been changed, as will our luck. I predict 6 wins, 3 draws and 1 defeat from our last 10 games. Yes, this is probably the bottle of...

    PL Table No 11 Southend Prediction league Saturday 15th February 2014

    THIS IS THE TABLE FOR SOUTHEND PREDICTION LEAGUE (Southend score and scorers only) THE MAIN PREDICTION LEAGUE WILL FOLLOW This wasn't too difficult for me today scoring Chapperzuk one point, everybody else bugger all and I'm sure he would have willingly got that wrong. With...
  7. 4G on mobile phone

    Last week I was upgraded on O2 to 4G on my iPhone. Wasn't really that fussed but after setting it up - holy crap! It seems to be faster than my home broadband and I spent my ride on the tram this morning watching the winter olympics. #gamechanger
  8. Worst Stewards?

    I've seen all over the League 2 page on Facebook, away fans complaining that we have the worst stewards in the league. This baffles me, purely because they don't do too much in the away end, or anywhere else in the ground for that matter (mainly because we're all well behaved :smile:) Our...
  9. Attending Games: Entertaining football Vs. Results

    After the thread about booing Sturrock, I've been thinking, what do people prefer, honestly? I wasn't a massive fan of Sturrock, but had & still have a lot of respect for the man. He worked a minor miracle. But that doesn't take away from the fact, he's brand of football was absolutely dire...

    Now Here's a Dilema

    About 2 1/2 years ago we gave our last remaining cat away. The reason was that we suspected our youngest was allergic to him, although we couldn't be 100% sure. The vet helped us find someone to take him in. It was a friend of the vet and she assured us these people knew what they were doing...

    BOXING: Weeknds Results

    Marcos Maidan Bt Broner by UD Boy was I happy to see this result come in. Big mouthed, self proclaimed heir to Mayweather's thrown sent crashing back down to earth by Maidana. Broner wasn't just beaten, he was crushed, rocked in the first and down in the second, and bar a couple of rounds in the...

  13. Did anyone else notice....

    Last night on BT sports watching the Gills crash out to Brackley (featuring Brett Solkhon who grew up on Canvey) I'm certain I saw Phil Brown lurking outside the makeshift commentary box up the precarious looking ladder. He wasn't under cover with the BT commentators one of whom was "Mad Dog"...

    Worst. Bet. Ever.

    A new record for me on Saturday - backed Chelmsford at around 10/11 against Borehamwood. They lost 6-0. Thank goodness it wasn't a spread bet!
  15. Sir Alex Ferguson's book

    Ferguson's Autobiography is out today after a fair bit of build up. A few quotes have popped up here and there. Heard Brendon Rodgers come out and say Ferguson was wrong to say Gerrard wasn't a "top, top player". Roy Keane has also come out and commented. Anyone going to get it or got it?
  16. How to spend $100,000

    A 33-year-old man has spent five years and $100,000 in an effort to look like his hero - teenage pop idol Justin Bieber Toby Sheldon is a songwriter from Los Angeles who has used Bieber's youthful features as the inspiration for numerous surgeries, including face fillers, a chin reduction and...

    England for the English ?

    Not a BNP thread this one... The new rules state that a player who is resident in a nation for X amount of year (I believe 5) can play for that nation as long as they havent played for another. Therefore the likes of Arteta and Almunia have been touted for England in the past and now Januzaj...
