  1. Football League Show

    Not sure if it's been mentioned elsewhere, but for those of you that enjoy the show and getting their 1st fix of Southend's matchday highlights... I've seen that the Football League Show on currently on Channel 5 has been dumped by them at the end of the season, and from next next season will...

    I seem to have unintentionally acquired a cat...

    Slightly random, I know. But about 3 months ago, a cat started appearing in our back garden on a pretty consistent basis. He then started noticing when we were getting home from work and waiting for the back gate to open before darting in and sitting in/rolling around in the garden wanting us to...

    Daytrippers Special

    I commented earlier on another thread about Bury and Col U fans responding to a Stevenage fan on SZ. That appears completely normal in comparison to this little gem appearing on the Wycombe Board. WTF is going on to normality today: Early day motion 43 SOUTHEND UNITED FOOTBALL CLUB...

    Multimedia websites

    Am I just being curmudgeonly in disliking the new look cricinfo web-site with its "multimedia" focus? Don't get me wrong, I'm not at all against highlight reels showing actual sporting action appearing on web-sites, or illustrating written articles with photographs, diagrams and the like. It's...
  5. Can PB solve the problem?

    It seems to me that PB isn't a problem solver... According to stats we have had this goal scoring problem for a long time, and a solution to this doesn't seem any closer to appearing. Take Jack Payne, a lot of us would have played him more last season as he seems to offer something different...

    Repeated advertising pop-ups - how can I stop them?

    I keep getting a pop-up - well more of a slide-in from the side - advertising "Hot Deals". I assume they are something to do with tracking cookies as they are usually something to do with a thread I'm reading - trainers, even "chit-chat" wild bird seed! How can I stop these ad's appearing?

    Adverts on SZ

    Hi all, am suddenly getting a load of adverts from "Jump Flip" appearing on the right hand side of SZ at times, there's an arrow and about 4 adverts for perfectly ordinary stuff. You can "send it back" to the side or "close" it but it doesn't stop it re=appearing. Cleared my cache and cookies...
  8. Petition on Huntington's Disease - Bit Long-Winded but Please Read

    As some of you will already know, my wife suffers from Huntington's Disease. This is an inherited genetic condition with symptoms generally appearing in early middle age, though a proportion of sufferers get Juvenile Huntington's. It is one of the worst genetic conditions to get, and has been...

    Random word links in posts

    Guys, I mentioned this within a thread but just in case none of you have seen it, I wondered what is going on with the fact that some random words are appearing as if they are linkys (I never have worked out how to do them) and when you hover over them, they link to "text enhance" adverts. Take...
  12. Why the doubts suddenly ?

    Having studied the debates over the past two days it now appears most on here are now having doubts about whether we can hold onto the likes of Hall and Ferdinand. Now in September, October and last month I was constantly told with sarcasm that these two would not be going anywhere and that was...

All the recent trialists have apparently gone and maybe some others will get a chance tonight. Rumoured to be appearing is former Stoke forward Vincent Pericard who was most...

    Are the seasons changing?

    Have the seasons fallen out of line?... We are now basking in way above average temperatures for Spring almost record breaking infact. Very little in the way of rain for weeks and weeks. Serious record breaking cold and snow in November/Early December. Spring arriving in January. Some...

    After Aldershot (A)

    This weeks Pringello Index is dominated by Glenn Morris. Despite conceding a late goal, a good display from the number 1, including some good reflex saves and handling in tricky conditions, have seen Morris pick up not only the Top Player Award but also the Most Improved Player Award for his...

    Is Martin *that*bad...

    Christ, shrimperzone suicide coming up.... I've begun to take stock of the situation we find ourselves in. Probably because things looked so bleak and I was so angry and frustrated (as are we all no doubt) that i almost gave up completely on the club and in doing so, probably removed the...
