    OK, so do you moisturise?

    As I get older I'm getting more and more earache from Mrs RHB that I don't moisturise my skin enough/at all. She reckons I'll end up shrivelled like a prune (she is cruel at times). So on her behalf I am asking you Zone people whether you use moisturiser just so as I can prove my point that I do...

    More bad news for Barna

    So it seems that the UK is actually doing quite well for itself under the "Nasty Party"....What is the saying? "cruel to be kind"? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-25198125

    Satisfying (if cruel) moments...??

    I mentioned in an earlier post that I would really enjoy grinning at Crawley Town, their manager and fans if we were to beat them in a hypothetical Play-Off Final at Wembley. So, what has been your most satisfying (if almost certainly cruel & heartless) moment at your opponents expense? Mine...

    Morecambe - what changes would you make?

    After the debacle on Tuesday that can only be fully appreciated by the "Aldershot 461" (as referred to on another thread and plagiarised by me, so thanks to whoever thought of that. Sounds more like a book by Ray Bradbury!), what changes would you make to the team, either in personnel or...
  5. Cruelty to SUFC Gnome?!

    I am being informed that my xmas pressie from the offspring now has to depart, leave, evicted to the great outdoors..... Surely this shouldn't happen? Am I to believe my SUFC gnome to be safe, out in this kind of weather, or from thieves, or even from being gnome-knapped by other vindictive...

    Kia Abdullah's amusement at toffs' fatal crash

    Occasional Grauniad columnist Kia Abdullah really is a charming girl. She's taking 'class warfare' to a low that I'm sure certain SZ posters would enjoy. Is this the politics of envy? Seems like it to me. Make your own mind up - link Personally, despite my own abhorrence of her comments, I...

    Get Ready For More Bloodshed

    Saw this on facebook: THIS IS AN ANNOUNCEMENT TO ALL OF MY NON-ISRAELI FRIENDS: in the last 72 hours, more than 70 Kasam and Grad missiles where shot by Hamas organization in to Israel, probably Israel will have to react soon- probably it's gonna get ugly- PROBABLY you'll hear about it for the...

    What I can't understand

    What gets me is how laid back our support seems, had this situation been mirrored at any other club I am sure something would have been done action would have been taken, but time and time again Ron appears with a smoke screen something to dissolve the attitude and the dreamers (and yes I use to...

    Don't Make A Whipping Boy Of Green

    Even as I type these words, I can hear the scraping of a thousand knives being hastily sharpened in the offices of England’s national newspapers. By the time I’ve hit ‘send’ on my email, be assured that this country’s sports editors will have plunged them all into Rob Green’s back. Football can...

    Perma-Tanned Wally

    The sacking of a manager is usually a euphoric release for a struggling club’s fan base, but the only people who seem to be pleased about yesterday’s cruel dismissal of Phil Brown are Arsenal supporters. Still miffed about Brown’s involvement in ‘SpitGate’, they’re delighted to see the back of...

    Why don't I feel Christmassy yet?.....

    .....because I've realise what a ******* Santa is, that's why. I mean, aside from the dubious idea of an elderly man entering the bedrooms of sleeping children and emptying his sacks, what else does he do? Think about it: 1) Parking offences - how many parking tickets must he pick up with his...

    Tubby Alan Wiley

    There's no room for sentiment in football. Alan Wiley should remind himself of that this morning when he hauls himself out of bed and trudges to the mirror. He'll suck in his gut and puff out his chest, he'll flex his arms and stiffen his chin, he'll even do that thing where you try and lift...

    A Big Cheer For Little Clubs

    Bit of a new one this, it's for the Irish Examiner's football supplement, currently rolling off the presses as I type. Bit more wordy than the usual fare and with more Anglo-centric references. Anyway, give it a go and let me know what you think, it helps to have feedback with new stuff... If...

    Beautiful Brazil Spank The Yanks

    Brazil 3-0 USA Melo 7 Robinho 18 Maicon 62 As any Arsenal fan will tell you, it can be frustrating to support a team who are as capable of excellence as they are of ineptitude. Defeats are all the more frustrating when you know what your players are capable of producing at their peak. Imagine...

    A Woman's Week At The Gym

    Dear Diary, For my birthday this year, my daughter (the dear) purchased a week of personal training at the local health club for me. Although I am still in great shape since being a high school cheerleader 43 years ago, I decided it would be a good idea to go ahead and give it a try. I...

    SZFC - Why have we chosen the Angelina Our Star Appeal

    All, There's been a lot of hard work going into making the "Sunrise to Sunset Charity Match" a really successful event, and we are doing our best to raise as much money as we can for the Angelina Our Star Appeal.

    Rugby - Help Required

    Ah, Uxbridge is going to love this. I've recently signed a four-book deal with the publishers of Football Fables to produce wry, but informative, guides to the four major sports. It's not quite as glamourous as it sounds. At 30,000 words, the books are rough-guides rather than ground-breaking...

    Gerrard & Co Give Scolari The Blues

    Apologies for the lateness of this, chaps. Should have been up straight after full-time. They may have come back from the dead against Manchester United in September and they might have turned the game around against Arsenal in Easter, but of all the teams to end their 86 game unbeaten home...
