    Pre-Match Thread Gillingham v Southend

    The game is technically our closest this season barring a nightmare on the QE2 bridge. As we all know it is a hell hole of the highest order with a death trap of an away stand. £20 seems very steep to me for a ticket. It would be nice to get back on track with a win a cox goal and a 15 minute...

    Telephone Sockets

    We're currently having a lot of work done on our house. One of the jobs was to remove all the old telephone sockets and wiring, and install a new telephone socket in the lounge. The guy who did it has done a really good job. We now only have one cable from the junction box inside the house...

    Memory Lane Billy Best

    I had a phone call earlier this week from Billy Best and for all those misty eyed fans of a certain age Billy will be back at Roots Hall this weekend for our match against Northampton Town, just under 50 years since he joined us from the Cobblers back in January 1968. Billy...

    Question Travel to Malaysia

    A question for those who are much more seasoned travellers than I am, to help my daughter out. She's travelling out to Malaysia next month with her father for a visit, which includes a wedding (her dad's mum is Malaysian so there's a lot of family out there). It's difficult for her to take...

    Midi blog

    I see the blog section appears just to deal with football, so I've stuck mine here. Don't know whether it will interest anyone but it was good therapy, unwinding after an exhausting weekend. MIDI BLOG Today is one of the few days I can sit in front of the computer with absolutely no guilt...
  9. Away form woes

    The word 'inconsistency' has come up regularly, I've began to wonder if the biggest disparity recently is between playing at home and away. Our away record since the turn of the year is W2 D1 L6, that includes 5 defeats from the last 6:sad:, most (all?) I believe against teams who were below us...

    Any Statisticians Out There?

    I have a question for any statisticians. I am looking at a presentation given to us at work on a particular subject. (I can't go into details because it's confidential.) Anyway the presentation shows 4 user types for a product, but all four are above average users. I asked the people who...
  12. Page 8 of the Echo - Garons development

    Has anyone read page 8 of todays Echo? An interesting read which I'll try and find a link but the basics are as follows: The council are looking to turn Garons into a sporting village which (caught my eye) will include: Two football pitches to Ryman League standard. One football pitch with...

  15. 1966 and all that

    First of all I have to agree with PB and quite a few of the SZ contributors: in balance there wasn’t evidence enough to award a goal. Sorry Barry. But the mind goes back to 1966. I’ve looked into that, and I have to say the (West) Germans had a point. A 1996 study conducted by the engineering...

    I think defence is the biggest problem.

    I know we don't score enough but I think if PB can sort the defence out we have a chance. I am sorry but the defenders we have at the moment are not good enough with the exception of Coker. Virtually all the goals we have conceded are due to woeful defending. PB does not seem to know his best...

    Goal of the month

    Isnt it sad that t FIVE goals available o vote for in Augusts' goal of the month, includes Lee Barnards' penalty? Not enough others from free play to makeup the numbers. Also, how many included Corr in the set up, for all you knockers. he's still an important part of the team.

    Glasgow Commonwealth Games 2014

    Thought I should start a thread as the action begins today, which includes Wiggo back on the track. The Opening Ceremony was erm...interesting. Barrowman? Really? I really fancy a Tunnock's Teacake though...

    The Last 12 months of the Prediction League

    In the brief pause between the World Cup and the start of the new season I thought it me worth a quick review of the last eventful twelve months and gave praise again to the winners. It was a year ago that the Prediction League was split into four sessions each one of about 13 matches. First...
