  2. ShrimperZone's greatest posts - 2012

    Shamelessly stole this idea from another board. If you feel a post is worthy of consideration as a 2012 great post, then quote it in here. At the end we could have a poll or something...

    Direct football - the associated benefits

    Reading Jack Sampsons interview in todays Echo, it's clear he only came to us because of our league position. I quote - "I had a few different options and a few clubs came in for me but one look at the league table will tell you why I chose to come here." Now I know that many have moaned about...

    Taxing Festive Cheer - a new lowI do hope you all enjoyed the festivities over Christmas. Perhaps, like I, you drank a fine wine with friends, or smoked a cigar with your Cognac to celebrate one of the few remaining holidays the taxman allows us revenue producing drones. No sooner have we put...

    Memory Lane Aldershot game off Old News

    Not to make light of the fiasco of yesterday, history tends to repeat itself, the game at Aldershot is certainly proof of this as the following from the 1949-50 season proves: Div.3 (South) Saturday 19th November 1949 Aldershot v Southend United Abandoned. This match is best forgotten, it was...
  7. Shrimpers are Magic


    Did anyone else notice how thoroughly cheesed off Johnson looked at the half time kick about with the other subs. To be honest I had to look away as it was too cringe worthy.

    You do know Brighton are top of the Championship ?

    Have a look at the table. I'm wetting myself here. Gus Poyet :Worthy:
  9. Two wingers

    Now that we seem to have two wingers worthy of the name, could we afford to play both wide players, espcially if clubs come here and play five in the middle with only one up front, my thinking is its possible we could be slightly outguned with only two central midfielders. Personally id like to...

    Health reforms 'will benefit most vulnerable in society'

    In a letter published in The Daily Telegraph, 42 family doctors, who together lead 1,100 practices across England, call on the Government to press ahead with the Health and Social Care Bill, and not withdraw support for Andrew Lansley, the embattled Health Secretary. Read the full article here...

    Eng V SL

    Was really looking forward to this summer's series against Sri Lanka but Sri Lanka have pretty much named a second string bowling attack. Murali has of course retired (as did Vaas a year or two back), but Malinga is being kept back for limited overs cricket, as is Angelo Mathews and there is no...

    Latest Rumours Tilson still not seen his money?

    Thought this was worthy of being in the main forum for now, rather than in the 'Ex-Shrimpers' forum where hardly anyone will see it. A little birdie told me recently that Mr. Tilson still hasn't seen any of the monies that he is owed by the club. That includes wages for 3 months before he was...

    Best ever individual displays

    Following on from Yorkshire Blue's thread about inept displays, I thought I might as well start one about towering displays of immenseness. Off the top of my head, I have to nominate Freddy Eastwood's debut, on Sat 16 Oct 04. If scoring after 7 seconds of your debut isn't enough, he finishes...

    Now I Know What the Helmets For.

    Since joining my new company things have moved along in the recovery world for me. My gaffer is one of these chaps who wont ask you to do something he wouldn't or couldn't do himself which is in sharp contrast to the last lot. He loaths paperwork and if the true is told, sitting in his office...

    PL Weekly Points Round 15

    I can only assume the high scores enjoyed in the week were a false dawn as it was back to below par this time around .. S2tc makes a rare appearance at the top table, along with The Big Shrimp who emerged from a poor trot of form to share the lead this week .. though being honest 7 isn't really...
