    Divine right to promotion?

    Some on here and others elsewhere (perhaps RM?) appear to believe we should have a divine right to promotion. I wonder how many other clubs will be equally as gutted about not achieving League 1 status? Northampton Town? Might still make it but with the potential support and set-up - they will...

    Spectacular days out!

    A bit of self-promotion but I'm looking for other stories as well. My day has involved conquering my mortal fear of heights by doing the Skywalk at Macao Tower (google it). Started off badly when the daft bint I went with decided to tell me just when we'd handed over ferry tickets that she'd...

    Memory Lane Greatest Zone post/thread ever!

    Inspired by Pubey's thread about greatest posts of 2012, just spent some time hunting out some of my favourites from years gone by. Some cracking stuff out there... I'll kick off with a couple of gems... ****les adventures in Leyton (couldn't qoute so follow link!)...
  4. Odd Phrases Under Usernames

    On occasions, mainly when the forum is loading slowly/incrementally depending on what I'm doing, I'll see odd phrases or tags underneath usernames, very similar to the Custom User Title. They appear for about 15/20 seconds, then disappear. Cricko's one mentions something about being as Divine as...
  5. Paul Sturrock

    Whilst I have been signed up on SZ for sometime my posts are few and far between, I am more of an observer. Some recent posts particularly after defeats are so negative. In my opinion I think PS is a very good experienced manager at this level and we should be very grateful to have him...

    Rons new year blog

    BLOG FROM JAN 2008 JUST SHOWS HOW FAR WEV'E FALLEN IN SUCH A SHORT SPACE OF TIME!! The transfer windows favour the Premiership and larger clubs who can target players within this condensed period of opportunity and do not have the same financial constraints as might befall the smaller clubs...

    X-Files Special: Prince of Wales really is a Charlie

    From Mark Steyn writing on NRO: According to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, we only have 96 months left to save the planet. I’m impressed. 96 months. Not 95. Not 97. July 2017. Put it in your diary. Usually the warm-mongers stick to the same old drone that we only have ten years left...

    Champions League Reports

    Apologies, I've been rushed off my feet this week. Here's both games for you. Is it so inconceivable that Arsenal could end this strangest of seasons as Champions of Europe? Arsene Wenger described his side as 'super-outsiders' before the first leg of their clash with Villarreal, but even after...

    Rusty Shackleford's X-Files: SUFC Special

    I thought I would depart from the normal RSXF theme of carl, steveo and I arguing with all the Godless lefties and discuss something which really doesn’t belong in the Pub section – my view on the current state of Southend United, both on and off the field. Steve Tilson has presided over one...
  11. After 25 league games last season...

    ....we had 34 points and reached the play-offs. After 25 league games so far this season we have 31 points. I'm not saying we will reach the play-offs this season (but then I didn't think we would this time last year) but it does show that maybe our current position is not quite the pit of...

    When are most Shrimperzones going to wake up and smell the coffee

    Before I start this is not an anti Tilly thread, nor a sack the manager / board rant either. What I want to do is to open a discussion regarding the current state of the club and the direction it is going in. I have been supporting the club since 1986, so I am not one of the new fan's that is...

    Mr Motivator

    No-one can be entirely sure of what is being said in the England dressing room at half-time, but if these second half performances are anything to go by, President Bush should consider hiring Fabio Capello to have a quiet word with Wall Street. That credit crunch would be turned around in no...

    Perfect Steak

    The perfect steak The grill chefs from I'm Angus restaurant, Sydney, share the secret of the perfect steak with you. Choosing the right cut of meat is essential: Fillet, Rump or Sirloin, Porterhouse or T-bone are all excellent for pan cooking or char-grilling, depending on your personal...

    The battle for succession at Stamford Bridge

    With Avram Grant deposed, the battle for succession at Stamford Bridge is on and there's only man that I want to see given a chance in the hotseat. The enduring bone of contention with Chelsea is that, with limitless funds, they've spent five years building up a very good, but very workman-like...

    Barcelona

    Barcelona booked their place in the Champions League semi-finals with a 1-0 win over Schalke, but they were made to work for it in a game that could have been over by half-time, had the Germans taken their chances. Mirko Slomka's side were timid and over-cautious in the first leg in...

    Capello - Will He Be Allowed To Win?

    Judging by the amount of hastily cobbled together puns on Fabio Capello's name in this morning's British tabloids, it now seems certain that the former Real Madrid boss will be named as the new England manager by the time you read this. Either that, or the Football Association's press officer...
