  1. Stubborn Phil throwing it away!

    Another defeat yet for whatever reason Phil will not change it and it's now become ridiculous . 2 months ago we looked capable of securing an auto spot but that has long since gone and now we are in grave danger of being mid table as the pack hunt us down. Game after game slips by whilst Phil...
  2. Football transfer to change?

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/25418135 Legal challenge has been made to end transfer fees. This means that contracts will literally be worthless and in theory and player can say "I'm off now", pay up his contract (or have his future club do that) and leave. I'm failing to see the point...

    Who do you want in the 2nd round?

    Failing a winnable tie at home I would take welling, Dover or Sheffield united away. Don't mind another localish non league game away. You?

    Skimming through a few threads, there seems to be a suggestion that wages haven't been paid. Does anyone have anything concrete on this, or is it just total speculation like Paul Sturrock's rapidly failing health?
  5. Will there be a new manager next season?

    Simple, will there be a new man at the helm next season? No discussion on whether he deserves the boot or not, just a simple yay or nay. I personally think Sturrock will walk before he's pushed, maybe due to failing health.

    Tour De Farce

    Sky Sports News are constantly dribbling on about cycling (yaaaaaaaawn) and usually about Team Sky .. now isn't there some sort of conflict of interest here ?? ... they even have banner headline/breaking news straps about how a Team Sky member has finished 47th (of 48 ??) in the Tour de Canvey...
  7. Kevin Hogg

    The club appears to be going forward.

    Whatever the rights & wrongs of taking a chance on Freddy...it really does look as though the club is determined to go forward. If you look at the investment in the playing staff (good and not so good) since January, it is difficult to criticise the club for lack of ambition or for failing to...

    Play-offs rethink?

    Yes like everyone else I'm still feeling deflated after failing to secure promotion after such a promising start to the season and searching for reasons to explain how and why we blew it, but something that crossed my mind before the Crewe games was shouldn't the team finishing in the highest...
  9. Bring Paterson or Flood in from the cold

    This Saturday against Bristol Rovers I think there needs to be a change and we need players in the side who want to be there and will fight for a place. Still for whatever reason PS does not rate Paterson but he should be given a go upfront with Benyon he is an aerial threat and is young and...

    Good Blog from Old_Holborn

    Taxing Festive Cheer - a new lowI do hope you all enjoyed the festivities over Christmas. Perhaps, like I, you drank a fine wine with friends, or smoked a cigar with your Cognac to celebrate one of the few remaining holidays the taxman allows us revenue producing drones. No sooner have we put...

    Inspired by a post Dick Bates Protege put up ....32 nominations are needed for IYO the best songwriter/s of all time. Any ridiculous nominees will not be included in the final 32. Please include joint efforts as one as in say Simon and Garfunkel or the Osmonds..(that should keep Kay on side)...

    Ladies Citizen gold plated watch - to repair or not?

    Guys, I know there are a few on here who know a bit about watches so I'm hoping for a bit of advice here. I have a watch as detailed above, brought for me some years ago by himself. Have repeatedly had problems with it over the years with batteries failing to last for any great length of time...

    Bellew v Cleverly. It's on.

    Tony bellew has finally got his dream fight against World Champion, after failing to make the weight when he stepped in to fight Cleverly in the summer. Bellew is already using Twitter to predict Cleverly's reign as world Champion will be short lived. Bellew is definitely the under dog, but...

    FC - Match 6

    Away to 3rd in a reverse of last weeks fixture where only the ME saw me failing to win. This time around I'm on a green track and I suspect their bowlers will exploit it. I have plenty of seamers but not in the same class. Toss could be vital here. I need to bat first to have any chance. PFL...

    Does Cyberbullying exist on SZ?

    Cyberbullying has been defined as- "the use of cell phones, instant messaging, e-mail, chat rooms or social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter to harass, threaten or intimidate someone." The question is does it exist on SZ and if so what can be done about it? IMO it certainly...

  19. Legacy shirt

    Please tell me I'm not the only who thinks the marketing bods at Roots Hall must be living in lala land creating this legacy shirt thing - and failing to realise that as far as fans are concerned the majority of us are fast coming round to the opinion that we aren't moving stadium any time soon...
  20. David Haye's next opponent will be.....

    ...Audley Harrison by all accounts. The announcement is due this week, (possibly tomorrow). After failing to agree terms with either of the Klitschko's, and with a lack of decent opponents, it's now looking set that it will be Harrison, who currently holds The European Heavyweight Title. Quick...
