    Kinnear Kickstarts Shola Show

    Could it be that Mike Ashley has actually made a sensible decision? The man whose baffling policies have crippled Newcastle United in little over a year doesn't get much right, but in the recruitment of Joe Kinnear, of all people, he might allow himself a smile. The forgotten man of English...

    Facebook Dilemma

    Just got a new friend request on Facebook. I put it to the good people of ShrimperZone, do I add him or not? Basically, the request is from a bloke I went to school with but lost touch at 16. Five or so years later, we bump into each other and go for a beer, he tells me how he's been engaged...

He went so far as to say that he would...

    Beware Belarus

    The Fabio Capello roadshow rolls into Minsk tonight with England endeavouring to make it four from four in Belarus. Few could have foreseen such a confident start to the World Cup qualifying campaign but, despite the promising progress, question marks still remain. Firstly there is the...

    Boo-Boys Blight Effective England

    With three wins out of three and a new-found ability to pass the ball about on the ground, the Fabio Capello revolution is gradually gaining momentum. A surprisingly perky Kazakhstan team were eventually swept aside at Wembley, crushed 5-1 with a late flurry of goals. The dark days of the former...

    Best Manager and Best Player - to prove Napster wrong.....

    In the Worst Manager/Player thread, Napster reckons there would only be a handful if it was Best Manager and Player being discussed. It's been done before, but I don't think together, and I like proving Napster to be wrong, so..... Graysblue has already nominated Tilly and Billy Best. For...

    Scolari Still Not Happy

    Under ordinary circumstances with an ordinary manager, a 4-0 victory in the Champions League might be considered worthy of celebration. However, it is rapidly becoming apparent that Luiz Felipe Scolari is very far from ordinary. "We did not play very well," he complained afterwards. "We made...

    Mildenhall MOM? - Absolutely - here's why.

    So we have had debates on whether Mildenhall was a good keeper or not, better than Flahavan or not and now whether he was MOM against Hereford or not. Well, I can sort of see both sides here. Often you hear someone talk about a "Man of the Match" performance and this is where a player...

    Trio Walcott!

    Call off the search and return the helicopters back to base. The England team, missing since the summer of 2004, have been found alive and well in Zagreb. After what had seemed like an eternity of dour, artless whimpering, the three lions found their voice and roared back into life against...

    Fear The Andorrans!

    The time for talking is over. Platitudes have no place on the pitch, especially when the going gets as tough as it will on Saturday night. Fabio Capello's England will be right up against it when they travel to Spain to face the butchers, bakers and candlestick-makers of Andorra's national...

    Question Battle of the Horror Films - Round 7

    Carrie (Old Blue Lady) versus The Ring (stevie g g g) Interesting battle, again old school versus new. Not sure if this is the Japanese original or the US remake. Even so, the US remake is fantastic The Ring is a worthy contender either way and gets my vote for being innovative, scary and...

    Do do , do do........

    Seeing Freddy on the tele tonight just made me think - who will 'inherit ' the song ? The mighty Zoltan Liptak flirted with it, it followed by number 23 Nicky ' the **** ' Bailey till we all realised he had ginger hair . So anyone worthy of the song ?

    Moan moan moan bloody moan!

    That is all a majority of people on here seem to do! Please just give new signings a chance, 2 games in and there 'cr@p'/not worthy of wearing the shirt, etc. No wonder a handful of new signings never produce for SUFC, cos no bloody idiot gives them a chance! They just get slagged off from day...

    This is a vital season for Arsenal

    At this time of year, particularly in the UK, it's not unusual to be struck down by the post-holiday blues. Everywhere you look you can see the sad, sun-tanned faces of those who have let their problems ebb away on a hot beach, only to return home to the sickening blow of normality. For some...
