    Rest of the season

    Having just looked at the fixtures and table for the rest of this season we seem to have a challenging next 6 weeks, playing most of the divisions top teams BUT then for the rest of the season we have games against mid table teams and a run at the current bottom 6 in the last month and a half...

  3. Fan's Forum Public Meeting Wednesday 17/8/16

    The Club have arranged a Fan's Forum on Wednesday to discuss the EFL proposal regarding 4 divisions covering 80 clubs. I am sure there will be no questions allowed on our current poor start to the season. Details here...

    As per the link below - a new highlights show on Saturday evenings at 9pm covering all three divisions. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/article-2873856/BBC-Sport-lose-Football-League-highlights-rights-Channel-5-hammer-blow.html

    As many don't predict till late it is difficult to judge how many will be taking part in the coming session but we should have 30 taking part in Division One and 30 plus in Division Two. Clearly from the recent poll the majority want three Divisions not two so this is the plan. Ideally I think...

    PL Fixtures No.1 for NEW SESSION Saturday 11th October 2014

    Yes it's the start of the second session of the season and it's back to square one all round. The difference is that at the end of this session the Main Prediction league will almost certainly be split into Three Divisions, so if you have been thinking of predicting NOW is the time to start when...

    Changes? YOU DECIDE

    While I am away (for No. 10, 11 and 12 Fixtures) a couple of proposed changes for the next session, it’s your Prediction League so I will abide by the majority decision. It makes no difference to me and very little extra work so let me have your views: A Division Three? We have now increased to...

    Football Manager 2014 - Phoenix Club Scenario

    Had a mess around with the data editor. Imagine Ronald's dream failed and the club's mounting debts and inability to meet monetary obligations led to liquidation. A new fan-owned phoenix club, AFC Southend United, have been entered into Ryman League Division 1 North. No debts of any kind...

  12. Barney RuMble

    I can't help thinking its time for a Barney Rumble and a Freddy Fracas. These players are capable of goals at this level but only if the team play to their strengths. Loza comes in and the team try to find him and exploit his pace. Corr comes on and the team always look for him. Barney and Fred...

    New Session of the PL THE PLAN

    As I'm sure you are aware the current session of the Prediction League ends next Tuesday and a new one will start on Saturday week well this is the basic plan: Firstly rather than call them sessions this will be the ninth time the SZ Prediction League has been contested so will simply call it...
  14. New Football Blog

    Hey guys, I've decided to start up my own football blog. I'm aiming on covering issues across all divisions but will most likely focus on the lower leagues as there's traditionally less written about clubs such as ours. I've just finished my first article so feedback would be helpful. Either...
  15. Kevin Davies - just saying

    From Sky Sports interview. You have to reckon on us being one of the clubs he is talking to. So who knows. Might not be as unrealistic as it might seem: What's your mindset heading into the summer? How are you approaching being a free agent? I've just been working on part one of my A license...
  16. Ben Greenhalgh

    The guy who won Football next star on sky, playing for Concord, has a great set piece delivery, can beat a player & his crossing is very good indeed. He has certainly made quite a difference down at Thames Rd, & could well play higher. Could be a great feed for Barry Corr like he has done for...

    Phil Brown - Moonlighting

    Phil Brown at Upton Park, BBC 5 live pundit"It ended up a great finish from Robin van Persie, it was a very tight angle. It was getting a little congested in the West Ham penalty area and United are going for the win now."

    Sky's Footballers Football Show

    Just in case this hasn't been mentioned elsewhere Phil Brown was on tonights show, which is repeated at 1.30 on SS1 (I think). I only saw about half of the show, but the two SUFC points that came out of it were that he was impressed with the quality of the players at the club. He then hinted...
  20. Question What would the Trust achieve with a seat on the Board?

    I have been reading the "Tour Discussion" with some interest. If the Trust achieve their aim and obtain a seat on the Board what will realistically be achieved? How would the Trust member vote? In my experience of Board Meetings Directors vote during the meeting so there will be no opportunity...
