  1. Chapel Down Sparkling Wine - SUFC branded!

    I recently went to a wine tasting at the Pipe of Port (well worth doing, £10 and you get try loads and if you have dinner they knock the tenner off the bill) and the first one I tried was a sparkling English wine called Chapel Down Blanc de Blanc. When I looked at the bottle I noticed it had an...

    The EFL

    So The Football League is being re-branded as the English Football League (EFL). Don't like it myself; sounds a bit too much like the EDL. And The Football League had worked ok as a name for quite a while I thought.... 664827510484529156

    Questionnaire pop up

    Hi guys, I logged into SZ late last night and I got an SZ branded pop up asking me to fill in a questionnaire. I did so then was offered a free trial of a product which I declined. Reading the small print of the offer, it is a bit of a con as if you don't cancel you get a big charge out of your...

    Quality club merchandise.

    Nothing is going to beat the SUFC branded car footwear carpets but can anyone beat these for understated style and quality?

    We Will Rock You Parody

    Our industry (promotional merchandise) has a "week" each year to promote all that is great about branded giveaways. Everyone does there bit and this year the theme was Promotional Merchandise ROCKS. Here is my company's effort, what do you think? http://youtu.be/aWi7SHVtB0w
  6. Ok so 'B' teams are out. Feeder clubs are out. What SHOULD we do?

    So the FA have come up with their master plan for improving the quality of the English game and as a result the England side. And predictably their suggestions have found themselves the victim of an almighty backlash...

    Blue Voice/Fans Group - Re-launch?...

    Is it time for TBV to make a comeback? - perhaps slightly re-branded, with a renewed focus and direction. Would you welcome it and would you support it? Is a fans group focussed on improving the atmosphere needed at RH and eventually (maybe) FF? Are any of you willing to get involved and help...

    Worst club shop item.

    Does anyone remember the SUFC branded mountain bikes (Universal I believe) that used to be on sale in the club shop. Did anyone buy one and if so did your son/daughter start crying when they received it as a Christmas/birthday gift?

If there not - remove them.. I have posted them in the Echo thread, but people might not see them in there...

    Official Match Thread HMRC v SUFC

    Ok, so this is in effect a match. So I thought I would start a match thread. Beautiful conditions at The High Court today, perfect for silky style of play. People's thought's on how the match will go? I personally think the bill will be part paid this morning and an agreement reached for...

    The Ballad of Balloon Boy

    No matter how lethargic and fuzzy-headed you feel this Monday morning, no matter how unenthusiastic you were about the idea of leaving your bed, console yourself with the knowledge that at least one person out there is having it worse than you. Somewhere, presumably on Merseyside, one little boy...

    Pistol-Whip The Cheats

    Nothing irritates me more than diving. Seriously, it's right up there above noisy eating, people who play tinny R'n'B through their cellphones on the bus and that invisible scratch on my West Wing DVD that smashes straight through the important bit ten minutes into every episode when you're...

    Taxing Times For EPL

    Have you noticed anything strange about this transfer window? Usually by this stage of the summer the Premier League is awash with new superstars from every corner of the planet, all clutching whopping great contracts and glibly swearing their allegiance to the cause, but with the exception of...

  19. Branded clothes

    Simple, do you care if they've got a "name" on them? Me, I get clothes when I have to in sales in cut price clearance Next in MK or only when there are sales on. £5 is the max I'd pay for a perfectly good T-shirt! So, do you blow your dosh on clothes just because they've got a little symbol and...

    Kate Lawler - Hottie or Munter

    After heated debate in the Woodgate thread with regards the general good looking nature of the above female - I was amazed to see nobody agreed with me...'Munter Alert' and other such things were branded towards the lovely Miss Lawler :( So the question i put to SZ is - what do you think?
