    R2 - Kaley Cuoco v Danielle Lloyd

    2 strong victories in R1 saw these two through, although Danielle had the tougher of the two ties up against Lauren Laverne. Knowing DtS, he's kept some convincing arguments back for the later stages, can Mr Gilbo and his girl convince SZ otherwise?
  2. Lester Bangs

    Turning the corner.

    Just been looking at the 'who will play against Tranmere' thread and with the options available to Sir Tilly we really do have quite a decent side on paper assuming all are fit and ready for action. Now, for the first time in a while, I think we have the potential to ride out the storm and...

    Slipperduke Review of 2009

    Welcome, my very dear friends, to a very special presentation. It's that time of year again, you see. A chance to sift through the wreckage of twelve months of English football, to reward the noble and to eviscerate the terrible. Bigger than the Ballon D'or, more prestigious than the PFA, these...

    Films that mapped your youth.

    I have got Quadrophenia on the box at the moment which never siezes to entertain me but it got me thinking. When it came out the mod revival was in full swing and as an stroppy short haired, button down Ben Sherman, Staypressed strids and Hush Puppies wearing trend setter, 'Quad' was my bible...

    City Must Be Patient

    There's no doubt about the identity of this weekend's biggest fixture, is there? It is, as we have said many times already this campaign, 'a big weekend for Rafa Benitez'. Mind you, it's an even bigger one for Mark Hughes. After splashing more money than Victoria Beckham and Coleen Rooney...

    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...
  7. You've got to hand it to him

    I've never met the man, so haven't seen his skills first hand, but you've got to hand it to him. Ron Martin must have incredibly slick PR skills. He seems to be like teflon. Whenever there is something bad to face, either someone else is put forward to take the flak or he somehow wins people...
  8. Surviving Scudamore

    When Richard Scudamore announced the new home-grown quota system that will come into place for the start of the 2010/11 campaign, you could almost hear the penny drop in boardrooms across the country. From August 2010, a Premier League club will have it's squad capped at 25 players, containing...

    Grays.. more weird goings on

    From the BBC site, that is one weird club. Grays look to appoint new manager Grays Athletic are holding interviews for a new manager even though current boss Gary Phillips has not been sacked. Phillips and his assistants Alan Lewer and John Yems are among those to have applied for the...
  10. Breaking News:Albion sign another two today

    Albion's 9th and 10th signings... Alan Navarro has signed a two-year deal with Albion after impressing while on trial during pre-season. The 28-year-old former MK Dons, Macclesfield Town and Tranmere Rovers midfielder becomes Russell Slade's eighth new face of the summer. The Albion boss...

    Question Could you find a bride/groom in seven days...

    With just seven sleeps to go until my life sentance begins tension at home is at a climax. Mrs DtS is worrying about every little detail of the wedding from what colour the name tags should be to what songs the DJ plans to play over his four hour set list. I have similar worries such as who is...

    Money Can't Buy Honour

    Footballers are a funny lot. Sometimes, it's like they have their own language. In their world an 'egg' or a 'nugget' means a foolish person, 'beans-on-toast' means the goalpost and 'I want to play Champions League football,' actually means, 'To hell with that, I want to earn more money in a...

    Worst date ever?

    Come on then ladies and gentlemen. We have all had some pretty terrible dates - so give us your horror stories. Mine dates back to 2006 time. I was doing a mortgage for a SZ poster who I wont name for fear of dating the data protection act or something similar. We met up at London Bridge where...

    Maybe Just A Shandy

    Harry Redknapp has always had a slightly jaundiced take on modern football. He doesn't care much for vitamin supplements and sports psychology, he'd rather talk old fashioned motivation than 'visualisation' and he doesn't feel bad about swearing at his players. Earlier this season I saw him...

    Question Your experiences of taking the other half to the football...

    I was talking to my boss today who failed to convince his wife to come with him and watch the Chelsea vs Liverpool CL match last night, as she thought it'd be a 'dull game'. But it reminded me of my own experiences when trying to convince the better half of what makes going to the football so...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Ronnie Pountney 2nd vote

    Up for the second time is Ronnie Pountney The first individual to be nominated 6 times, this still wasn't enough to make him a first ballot hall of famer, as his vote seemed to have got lost in the Christmas period. The idea that Pountney didn't make it was met by incredulity from those who...

    The Fall of Roman's Empire?

    The rumours that Roman Abramovich is attempting to sell Chelsea may have been quickly denied by the club, but when you stack up the numbers, it's all too plausible. Stamford Bridge has been a black hole for the Russian oligarch's cash and, in a year when he's lost so much money elsewhere, it...
  18. I need a plan...

    Slightly odd question... How do i convince my parentals to let me go on the train to the Stockport game? (I'm 16) I need to go in with a good tactic otherwise they'll flatly refuse and i won't get my fix of proper football! I'd be going with my Blackpool fan friend on account that no-one else i...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Ronnie Pountney

    There are many ways to measure greatness: appearances, medals, honours, popularity. Well Ron Pountney sits third in the all-time appearance list, was an integral part of the club's first major title (Division 4, 1980-81) and won the player of the year award a record three times. Ronnie...

    Question For FM 09 fans - club colours

    I know that this is probably a fairly trivial detail for most of you FM players, but I'm having a little debate right now with my Head Researcher. Most of you will know that the title bar that displays your name or your teams name in game is in the club's home colours. Based on our home shirt...
