  1. How to spend $100,000

    A 33-year-old man has spent five years and $100,000 in an effort to look like his hero - teenage pop idol Justin Bieber Toby Sheldon is a songwriter from Los Angeles who has used Bieber's youthful features as the inspiration for numerous surgeries, including face fillers, a chin reduction and...

    World Cup 2014

    Deserving of its own thread now I think. I'll kick things off by saying I've backed Uruguay at 50/1. I don't think they will win it but they are slightly overpriced and could be a good trading opportunity.
  3. Ref Watch ...... Burton A

    As we look to improve on our miserable record of one win in six matches against Burton, we have, for the third League match running, a second year ref with a below average card count. This time it's Tony Harrington from Cleveland. His first season went well enough and this season seems to be...

    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...
  5. Question What are the 'football related debt' that we have not paid exactly?

    Apologies if I have missed it, but does anyone know what debt we haven't paid and how much (and if you have a crystal ball when we will be paying it !). I know someone suggested months ago that we had not paid the Wembley money, but I can't recall if it was a throw away comment or not.

    Question Was it a penalty?

    I know it's irrelevant now, but was Jack Payne in or out of the box when he was caught? I couldn't be sure from where I was on the night (although I did scream for the pen) and Blues player still isn't definitive enough for me to decide. Was anyone near enough to clarify? After all, goal...

    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...

    From the Land of My Fathers

    For those of you with a spare 40 minutes, in view of the continuing perilous state of our football club, please watch this programme broadcast on BBC One Wales last night. http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01skh66/Swansea_City_The_Fall_and_Rise/ This is exactly what the trust should be...
  11. Mystery Shopping

    Anyone do it? I signed up to one the other week and I'm pretty impressed. Had a few free meals, and a few free bets so far. For those who don't know what's involved, you basically get set a scenario which involves purchasing an item. For example, I picked up a task in Holborn today of going to...

    worse case senario?

    I am a tilsonite and have never hid that fact but talk of removing luggy from his job is just crazy. He is exactly what we need at the moment to try and get us up the league, an experienced manager who has been there seen it and done it. Sure I question somethings he does and don't particulary...

    Possible new managers

    I would like to know who exactly people think would come and manage this team if Sturrock quits or is pushed? Coughlan is a possibility but of course he might not want the job Harris is a good bet, but he might want more security Tilson is a no-no whilst Ron is here I can only think of maybe...

    Anton Ferdinand loan move to Bursaspor

    How long before he encounters some racial comment with real threat and menace? Must say, I'm surprised he took a move to Turkey, they're not exactly renowned for their tolerance. Am sure it won't be too long before he'll take the context of what Terry allegedly said as actually not that...
  15. Where do we need to strengthen?

    After watching Southend sign players this transfer window, where do we need to strengthen exactly? The release of Martin has left the gap of left midfield, and Timlin isn't a natural left midfielder, surely one of the places we need to strengthen?
  16. Those who wanted Tilson out have got what they deserved

    Before Tilson we were a poor league 2 side with a average League 2 budget playing poor quality football. What have we got now? Exactly the same

    The guy who abused Phillips

    Re the Gillingham no-mark thug who abused Phillips whilst walking alongside him: the stewards weren't exactly rushing over - I hope to hear that he has been banned from all home fixtures for his behaviour.

    For those with an optimistic nature

    Southend 0 Cheltenham 2 Lincoln 1 Southend 1 Rochdale 2 Southend 0 Southend 0 Cambride 0 Bristol Rovers 2 Southend 1 24th after 5 games and only 2 goals. That's how we started our season in 2004/5 and we eventually gained promotion via the play offs. This sseason 2 defeats in 2 games, but (and...

    Is the National Minimum Wage Ageist?

    http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/employment/employees/thenationalminimumwage/dg_10027201 should an 18-20 year old who is doing exactly the same job/task as a 21 year old be paid £1.10 an hour less? In this day and age could this be considered ageist?

    Players from the past you had an irrational hatred for, part 94

    Jamie Moralee. Despised him, can't remember exactly why but I'm sure it will have been completely justifiable. Now to be found spouting ***** on the radio claiming that Roy Hodgson had "disrespected" Rio Ferdinand by not picking him. I'd already shouted at the idiot to **** off before I'd even...
