  1. Other Country you would like to live in.

    If you didn't have family, work ties etc etc, which Country would you like to live in? I thought about this when seeing the list below for the most peaceful Countries. Your choice doesn't have to be on that list of course. Top 10 Most Peaceful Countries In The World 2018. Rank 1 Iceland 2...

  4. Roma 'penalty'

    I didn't watch the match but Graham Poll is quoted in today's DM that Roma were denied a clear penalty when the Liverpool player handled in the box. I'm not querying whether it was a penalty - except to say I still think some referees haven't a clue about 'intent' - but he then goes on to say...
  5. How important is the first goal.

    You may well be surprised how much the first goal has influenced our results this season. We have now ended the bizarre run of not scoring in the second half but did you know but we have not gained single point away from home if the opposition has scored first.....11 games, 9 of which we didn't...

    Sponsors Dinner last night

    A good evening at the Arlington Rooms, well done to the new Commercial team on their organisation. A very different regime to previous ones, players not allowed a drink - although I did see one or two having a glass of red! Saw a few Zoners and regular TZers there and had a chat with some of...

    Best currently at the club?

    Best Header Interesting for me to see the two people I rate as the best headers of the ball at our club score with their heads this weekend. Turner's goal was a peach. Unmarked as he may have been, that was a great connection and a beautifully placed finish right past the keeper. Didn't need...
  8. Just realized I never introduced myself

    Hi all, I'm 30 odd posts in already but I didn't introduce myself when I joined which was rude so here goes. From the age of 2 until nearly 7 my family lived in The Hague so, when we came back to live in Saarfend, I knew nothing of english football. A school friend showed me book that had...

    What a plonker in Basildon

    Last Saturday in my local bookies, I guy won £ 7,500 on a football £ 500 outlay bet Yesterday he laid out £ 5,000 on Real Madrid/Liverpool double, Liverpool to win single and PSG to draw to cover in case Real Madrid didn't win Easy come, easy go I suspect And he's not a regular punter in the...
  10. Big Thanks

    On behalf of all members of the Zone we would like to thank everyone for their efforts today in helping the club to clear the pitch to enable today's game to go ahead. I know that there are Zone members present wielding shovels and brooms ------ Cricko would have turned up but the club had...

    Latest Rumours You're probably paying too much on your mortgage!

    Hi all As a mortgage broker and financial adviser, I have spoken to so many people in the past who hadn't realised that there was anything better for their mortgage than the interest rate that they were being charged. Some didn't think that anyone could help them, so just carried on paying the...

    Away fans treatment

    Is it just me (quite likely) or is anyone else a tad miffed about how away supporters are generally treated as second-class? Poorer view, ghastly toilets, can't see the scoreboard, higher price tickets (£28 at Peterborough for some) just some examples. Not everywhere I agree but certainly some...

    The gambling Gods are trying to tell me something!

    Yesterday (Northampton (a)). I thought "Hmmm, curse of the ex-player. I'll put £2 on O'Toole to score". I didn't, he did. I thought Id put £2 on Demetriou to score. He did, I didn't. BONG!

    Boots and Laces

    My old man has been a fairly regular visitor recently at Boots and Laces until he was turned away last Thursday by a builder. He was told that he wouldn't be able to watch training sessions in the short term. Unfortunately he didn't think to ask why... anyone know what the works are and when he...
  16. EEEP from a players perspective!

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/41839083 I found this an interesting. I initially clicked on it because I thought 'It really is, Finley Burns cost £175k' but it wasn't what I thought at all. If a player needs to move to a lower category academy for whatever reason, the new club could be...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend United 1-0 Reading U21

    :tumbleweed: In the absence of Manor15 :spread: and that fella from Doncaster, who is frankly slacking, let's be honest, I thought I'd get the ball rolling. I didn't go, but I know someone who did, so let's hear it. Was it as dire as it sounded?

    Seems his face didn't fit someone was out to get in out.Players seem to like not all though.Hope the FA get the right man or woman in as they have a decent squad.

    Theresa May - Dead woman walking?

    The old adage of keeping your friends close and your enemies closer appears to have finally backfired for Theresa May where Boris Johnson is concerned. I don't pay anywhere near as much attention to politics as I used to, but it does look as if Theresa has lost a lot of confidence and respect...
