    X-Files Special: The Teflon Ron

    Reading through many of the posts regarding our current financial woes, one thought has struck me over and over again: How the hell does Ron Martin do it? Mr Martin has been proven to be a liar. That’s a fact that cannot be disputed. I was thinking of prefacing that with an ‘IMHO’, but I...
  4. A lot worse than our club folding

    Dts and myself after discussing the possible demise of our beloved SUFC on Friday night realised an even more disturbing fact..It has been over a month now and the Spurs fan Lndfasto still remains in the Green. It shook us to the core and we had no idea as to why such a major thing could occur...

    Question Was it really that warm last night???

    I was chatting to a mate last night who reckoned it was 17c which came as a bit of a shock because last night in my back garden it was -1c. After watching the weather forecast this morning, his comments seemed to be confirmed. A difference of 18c between here (Strichen) and my beloved Essex...

    Silence from Tilly, Brush and Ron

    Not a word from any of them since saturdays match, not one comment from yesterday or indeed today. Whilst Geoff King has made himself a numpty, shouldnt our beloved chairman have made some sort of statement? Surely he can see that King is making a fool of himself and shouldve intervened...

    Latest Rumours Motor racing 'baron' to take major stake in SUFC

    As if we haven't had enough going on today, I have heard from a mate of mine who was at the Belgian Grand Prix at the weekend that he heard from a 'fountain of knowledge' that a prominent figure in the world of Motor Racing is about to take a major slice of our beloved Blues. I have tried to...

    The dreaded blue screen of death

    About a week ago, my beloved laptop choked on its porridge when I tried to shut the thing down. Using the usual Start-Shut Down method didn't work so I eventually resorted to the power off button. For that sin, it rewarded me with the following and now won't launch windows even in safe mode...

    One SUFC game/day you could erase from memory happily.

    Following on from my single best day/moment thread I am now asking for the single worst game you have ever endured. A day so bad you would gladly wipe it from your memory forever. Mine was Boston at home on a cold and wet Tuesday night. Probably about 2003/2004 time. The lead up to the game...

    Terry's Disingenuous Pledge

    If you ever wanted to capture the essence of modern football in just one page, you could do a lot worse than paying a visit to Chelsea's website. Here, behind the splash of adverts for a new kit that looks more like a women's cycling top than a football jersey, you will find John Terry's...

    Question When will even the loyalists start to panic?

    A number of posters, including myself, have expressed dissatisfaction with the lack of transfer activity at our beloved club this summer, and there have been further murmurings regarding the club's perilous financial situation. My feeling is that SZ is by and large a pro-Ron community (it's...
  15. Mr Chris Phillips and SUFC

    Now, before today i thought give him the benefit of the doubt, is he just an excited writer blah blah blah. But after reading todays echo i think the bloke is just really trying to stir the **** up between club and supporters. Most of you who have read his article will understand this point of...

    Sunderland Fans Celebrate Newcastle's Demise In The Cruellest Way Possible

    Think Col Ewe fans putting a relegation banner on Southend Pier and you get some way towards thinking how enraged and hurt Newcastle fans were yesterday morning when they awoke to see their beloved Tyne Bridge looking like this ... For the uninitiated, 'Mary Poppins' was how a Newcastle...

    RIP Paul Chidgey

    I hope you'll indulge me here - we said farewell today to a stalwart Blues supporter, a Trust member, a STH in South Upper and a colleague of mine up to only 4 months ago. Paul Chidgey died very suddenly on Maundy Thursday, aged just 50, having celebrated his 50th just a few days before. I...

    Dear RM and Tilly - can we get Freddy Eastwood back to lead our play-off push ?

    Chris Coleman knows that Coventry's season is over and they are safe. Freddy Eastwood is not one of his 'key' players and he might be thinking of offloading him at the end of the season . If he scores a few goals between now and then it is a win win for Coventry and us, and of course for Freddy...

    New Kits 09/10

    It's that time of year when the new Nike Teamwear catalogue is released and it gets me thinking what will our beloved team be wearing next season. I am assuming that we will remain Nike but am in the middle of composing an email about our kit choices to hopefully be answered on Ron's blog Q&A...
