    First Gigs

    Was looking at the Gigs thread and saw someone say they wish they could have gone to the Damned gig and got me thinking about the first gigs I went to. Was only just turned 16 for the first one, seems young to have travelled all the way to London with just a mate these days! First three: 1...

    Totally beyond belief????

    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-35773649 No, this is not about the veracity or otherwise, of these leaked papers..........it's a more important question than that. We live in a western democracy........freedom of the press and all that b******s. So, from that point of view and...
  3. Publish and be damned

    Something has been bothering me over the Charlie Hebdo cartoons that have caused to much grief of late...and why I believe in a free press and OBVIOUSLY condemn any hostile action in relation to them or any other piece of journalism/art, I have to say that some of the cartoons have gone beyond...

    What should we do with the Cresswell money?

    However much we get, what's people's preferred option for the club to take? Ron will be damned whatever he does, I'm just curious as to what everyone on here thinks
  5. SupaBlues


    Hi good people of SZ. Just after a bit of advice. I have a huge dilemma that will shape the rest of my life. I was with my partner for the best part of 20 years. About 5 years ago I found out that I had a daughter, who was 17 when I knew, and we had also discovered it was not possible for my ex...

    Stats, Stats & Damned Stats...

    According to Proffessor Wiki, PB's managerial career states are: Games: 246 Wins: 74 Draws: 71 Loss: 101 Win %: 30.08% Draws %: 28.86% Assuming he carrys those percenatages through to the next 7 games, it will mean 2 wins & 2 draws = 8 points. That will give us 63points. If we are very lucky...

    England - Selection headaches and unrealistic expectations

    Just reading through the Switzerland thread and can't help but feel a little bit sorry for Capello. I'm one of those that think he has been wrong tactically and selection wise, and given how much we're paying him to succeed, he's quite lucky to still be in a job - however with team selection...

    Brian Clough

    Been meaning to read one of Cloughies books for a while, finally had a bit of time come up and have gone to purchase one of the Cloughie based books and realised there are a small handful. Anyone read/recommend any of the following; Clough: The Autobiography B.Clough Provided you don't kiss...

    I have problems with work laptop so am trying to access work Webmail through my own laptop. I come up against Java problems (also preventing me from accessing SZ Chat Room) saying not installed on PC. I tried a few things then uninstalled + Reinstalled latest version of Java. I still can't get...

    The other Peter Taylor...

    Doc on BBC1 (East Mids) tonight Having watched A Damned United for the first time the other day, I might give this a look tonight - one for those with Sky I'm afraid, guessing BBC1 East Mids will be around the 970/980 mark in terms of channels.

    The Damned United

    Quick review as Mrs Slipperduke is waiting to be taken out and treated right. Exceptional. Utterly charming. There's loads of bits that are out of the timeline, loads of quotes that are attributed to the wrong people and loads of absolute fantasy, but after a while you stop caring. Besides...

    Listen To The Lessons Of Clough

    On the weekend that saw the UK release of the Brian Clough movie 'The Damned United', it was alarming to see Manchester United's discipline crumbling in a way that 'Old Big 'Ed' would never have tolerated. The legendary Nottingham Forest and Derby manager was rarely short of a quote and I can...

    The Damned United - Trailer online

    Looks pretty good. Michael Sheen is playing Clough after starring as Blair in 'The Queen' and Frost in 'Frost / Nixon'. Likes his character roles eh? http://www.empireonline.com/news/story.asp?NID=24072 Just have to get reading the book now! Its next on my list, so I should get round to it...
  15. screwed up by the loan system ... .... .... ..

    i remember the demand on this board for Tilson to get some decent players in and to use the loan system (which I hate) to our advanatge..... and hes done well in attracting some quality young players .... who then have to learn how to play in real games against experienced pros with a lot at...

    Benitez Must Improve

    It's two wins from two for Liverpool in the Premier League and European qualification has been secured, but has success ever been this abject? If the sign of a champion is the ability to win when you play badly, then Liverpool should have the title wrapped up by Christmas, because I don't think...

    Midweek Funnies

    There are two Mexicans who have been lost in the desert for weeks, and they're at death's door. As they stumble on, hoping for salvation in the form of an oasis or something similar, they suddenly spy, through the heat haze, a tree, off in the distance. As they get closer, they can see that...
  18. Mr. Benedict


    I just have to get this off my chest after struggling around it this afternoon on the way to Crawley. This is possibly the most annoying road in the history of roads. May it be damned for the rest of time: it should NOT take 2 hours to travel 20 miles unless someone's stuffed it into the...

    Geeky Game

    Ok, not everyone is going to like this one. It's heroically geeky and ultimaately rather pointless, but it's more addictive than Twiglets. You're a miner. You have to dig in a BoulderDash* kind of landscape for ore. Run out of fuel and you'll explode, fall off a ledge too hard and you'll...
  20. Punk Reunion------

    Went to Bar Lambs tonight for a punk reunion night and had the privilege of getting on stage and singing with Retrospex , a Southend Punk band. Headlining were the Doomed , with ex-Damned guitarist Roman Jugg. A really good loud night out.
