  1. At training.....Latest report.

    At training today....5th Sept. I was able to go and watch training today. They played an 8 v 8 with the youth goalies in goal. All the injured centre backs and Hendrie weren't there. Cox was almost back to his best, Smashing them in, I just hope he can bring that to the 1st team games...

    Mr Kettle caused a little steam to be let off yesterday....

    Really surprised this hasn't popped up on here as yet - at least, not as far as I've seen. AFC Wimbledon v Accrington Stanley, our friend, Trevor Kettle the ref. So, resident refs and members of SZ, what do we make of this? Was he right or was he wrong? Certainly I think the majority of refs...
  3. Comparisons to 10 years ago

    The thread earlier about the 2004-2005 promotion team got me thinking and it occurred to me there are quite a few comparisons currently to our situation 10 seasons ago. Some of these are: - Recent LDV / JPT final appearance losing 2-0 to a league 1 team from the north west - Blowing automatic...

    If the game had finished at half time today...

    ...we would be saying how well we played. I could totally understand the system switch; we played narrower, with no wingers, because Weston and Coulthirst are not going to win aerial battles. With those two plus Payne and Clifford we have players with quick feet that can switch the ball about...

    Theme Tune

    Hi, Just passing some boring time at work. I was at a fight night last night and the amount of fighters coming out to "blowing bubbles" (Turns my stomach) i wonder if we will ever have a "Theme" tune that can become iconic to the club for generations?
  6. Have we blown promotion already?

    Now, don't get me wrong, Luggy was brilliant last season after what he had to contend with when he came to the club. Also, the squad he had built up this term is extremely strong for this level and the away record this year has been very good also. However, I'm wondering as to whether he can...

    The Smell of BO

    I thought I'd share this story with you all. I was walking from the office to the train station on the way home one night last week, and in front of me were two people. The wind was blowing into my face and I could smell awful BO. One of the people in front was a smartly dressed woman who had...
  8. Great opposition goals..............

    We must have seen some goals from the opposition which stick in the memory........... I remember Exeter City at the Hall, October 1983, Gerry Francis was their player/manager. Ex-England captain, QPR, Spurs. Pouring with rain, gale blowing, he picked up the ball in his own half. A couple of...

    Memory Lane A nod to last year's unfortunately relegated superstars...

    They were too good to go down and merely relegated because the nasty chairman wouldn't pay them, so with the season go, let's look at each player and how they've done since obviously going off to better things as they were so good... 1. Steve Mildenhall - Millwall, appearances 0, enjoying...
  10. Random pipe thread.

    All, Need a bit of building advice - I've been bashing off (ooer) some quite revolting plasterwork that the previous owner put over two fireplaces in my house. Now on the side of one, I uncovered a copper pipe that doesn't get hot when I put the central heating on. There's no gas fire nearby...

Sturrock took the training today and was blowing his whistle alot and throwing his arms around before sending the squad on a run whilst he was...

    Conservative How Did Cameron Screw This Up?

    He was up against an anonymous public-schooled Am-Dram nobody and a one-eyed bear with all the charm of genital herpes. He had almost every popular newspaper throwing muck at his rivals and calling him a Man Of Steel or Our Last Great Hope, blowing the horn of bullpoop in the ears of the nation...
  15. Volcano Jokes

    Kids Just Don't Know Their Born

    While having a wonder around the shop today it suddenly struck me just how little kids know of the real world and what they are missing out on. It started when my missus mentioned our niece and how it must cost her mum a fortune so she can wear all the clobber and make-up yet she hasn't two...

    Just got a txt from my sister apparently they are blowing up ww2 bomb at Pitsea at 5pm, and line between pitsea and benfleet will be temporarily closed. (that said, i cant see anything about it on c2c website!)

    Cheryl Cole. Grrrr.

    There are a million and one reasons to dislike Cheryl Cole. There’s her colour, for starters, a curious orangey glow that smacks of either too much Sunny Delight or too many quid-a-minute South Shields tanning salons. There’s her husband, the odious little skraeling who earns more money in the...

    Found this on QPR's Messageboard

    Ok, so it was sent to me by someone on QPR's messageboard. I have to say that for the most part of this fan rant, I kind of have to agree! Of course, things are bad at QPR, so you can understand where this guy is coming from, but this is rage I have not witnessed very often!

    7/7 Conspiracy Theory

    Did anyone watch the programme on BBC2 last night? I thought it was going to subscribe to the idea that 7/7 was a conspiracy, but it kept blowing the arguments out of the water. That said, I am watching the 7/7 Ripple effect on youtube. It's in seven parts, and its so blatently a load of...
