    Billericay Town

    Well they are certainly flexing their financial muscle! Konchesky and O'Hara signed and strong rumours Carlton Cole is next. Will certainly be having a bet on them next season

    My dilemma

    Good folk of SZ I need your advice please. I have a serious problem. I have been invited to a lunch on 4th April where the guest speaker is one Alvin "Chipmunk" Martin. :stunned: What do I do? Do I accept and go along and listen to his "witty" stories about coming through the West Ham Academy...
  5. Gilbert and Leonard

    I didn’t think much of Gilbert’s reaction to the Oxford goal on Saturday. He started mouthing off at Leonard, and was still haranguing him well after the restart. I’m never happy when players have a go at their own team-mates, but what Gilbert did was a bit rich. Just look at the highlights...

    Muttiah Muralitharan

    Murali is playing his final test for Sri Lanka, and before start of play he need 8 wickets to reach 800 wickets in Test Cricket. He took a 5fer in India's first innings and has 1 of the 5 to fall so far in their second innings. I hope he gets there, and it is possible that his total may never be...

    2010 season

    Ah, spring training. The sound of rubber or cork wrapped in yarn and covered with leather thumping into leather mitts or the rifle crack of corked ash. Ahhh. There is something magical about the phrase "pitchers and catchers report". It sounds so innocent but at the same time so alluring. I'm...

    More "highlights" from Yeovil - thanks BBC!!!

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/eng_div_2/8328072.stm Oh dear, we really look like stalkers now! Just to explain, this came about because after that long journey and no stop (thanks Wino!), we ladies were desperate for a wee. With the facilities at the ground closed off due to the...

    Deadline Day Drama! (sort of)

    Transfer deadline day is one of the most exciting of the season and, with the window slamming shut right on our deadline, you're not going to miss a thing. We told Iain Macintosh to power up his Blackberry, stay tuned to the news and scour the internet for rumours. Here's how his day panned...

    You Lucky *******s

    Only Tottenham could make such a simple task so ludicrously difficult. Only Tottenham could take an unloseable game and almost throw it away. Harry Redknapp has booked his place at Wembley for a second season running, but he won't kid himself that his team deserves it. Two late goals from Roman...

    Score It, O'Hara!

    Someone really needs to find out what Harry Redknapp is saying at half-time, because if we can patent and market it, we'll make a fortune. After an abject first half at White Hart Lane, Tottenham burst into life in the second, scoring four goals in twenty minutes, helped in no small way by the...

    Rafa's Poisonous Glow

    There is a frog in Central America, the strawberry poison dart frog, that is born bright red as a warning to predators of the poison that lurks in its blood stream. It is not the only creature whose colour signifies danger. Certain snakes, insects and the oft-spotted Rafa Benitez all share the...

    Woeful Reds Ravaged By Redknapp

    The Tottenham Hotspur revival continues. Not content with robbing Liverpool blind in the League ten days ago, Harry Redknapp's resurgent warriors battered them in the League Cup as well. This emphatic and fully deserved 4-2 victory means that the North London side have racked up an astonishing...

    Spurs Self-Destruct Again

    Another day, another miserable result for Tottenham Hotspur. The pressure will continue to build on the beleaguered Juande Ramos, but with performances this self-destructive and stupid, is it really any wonder? Spurs were the architects of their own downfall on a cold, windy night in Northern...

    Lets all laugh at spurs!!

    http://www.skysports.com/football/match_commentary/0,19764,11065_3074942,00.html Lost 2-0 to Udinese and Jamie O'Hara got sent off. Nothing is going to great for them.

    I've just had two women call round asking what type of bread I eat. When I said white, the proceeded to harangue me about the benefits of brown bread for over 30 minutes. ****ing Hovis witnesses. :stunned:

    Ramos Must Take The Blame

    Tottenham Hotspur may have taken their place in the draw for the second round of the UEFA Cup, but not even the most ardent of their fans will have been convinced by this lacklustre, disjointed performance. Despite taking the lead in the second half and, in doing so, wiping out the danger of the...

    Poor old Spurs

    Juande Ramos' tilt at a third successive UEFA Cup ended in heartbreak at The Philips Stadium when Pascal Chimbonda dragged his spot-kick wide of the goal and sent PSV Eindhoven through by the narrowest of margins. Despite 210 minutes of football, these weary gladiators had to be separated by a...
