    9am training

    Why is training at 9am? http://www.echo-news.co.uk/sport/blues/15680199.Blues_striker_Ranger_to_be_recalled_if_he_turns_up_on_time/?ref=rss Players generally need to be primed to perform at 3pm or 7:45pm, so it would seem strange to me to have their routine so they turn up at 9am each morning...

    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...
  4. The Chimp

    Probably shouldn't start criticising a work colleague, but is there much evidence to really support Steve Peters and his Chimp theory/methods? The concept is persuasive and I can imagine it having short term benefits to help you regain focus. But then in many publicised cases where he's been...
  5. Drink Drive limit

    As Scotland has reduced the limit from 80mg/100ml to 50mg/100ml, which makes it close to the limit if you drink even 1 pint or 1 glass of wine, do you think England should follow suit? Personally I think it should be as close to zero as you can make it (taking into account naturally occuring...

    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...

    Ron's address on "Developments with the Council" from programme v Bristol Rovers As this had been requested by others on the match report thread, I thought I would post this so it's a bit more easily found for those interested... Includes Capital Letters where originally written! :winking:

    Grauniad/Stan Collymore

    So I just posted on the Guardian about meeting your football heroes. One of mine is Stan (naturally). I got grief from someone who posted their heroes were woman-beaters etc. I reported their comment, but if anyone wants to back me up within the comments, the link is...

    Peggy Lokando

    As a 16 year old, Clasford Stirling was quoted as saying, "Peggy Lokando is the most naturally gifted player I've ever seen. Even at the age of 10 he was so confident in his ability, his balance, his turn of pace - it was just poetry. I saw him after he'd been on the bench for the reserves...

    HK Ferry Crash

    Woke this morning to hear this 36 dead so far. Yesterday was a national holiday culminating in a firework display that was breathtaking. 25 minutes and just when you thought it can't get any better they kept coming bigger and better. Some of these people were on their way to it. The ferries...

    Weird atmosphere..naturally.

    Despite all our optimism and a relatively comfy ride for the team - the atmosphere was tense. Even when in the promtion position with 15 minutes to play, it was relatively subdued and nervous. That is how it is when, no matter what our team does, we were all waiting for bad news from Lancashire...

    I don't know how many of you have seen this film but it kind of reminded me of what Paul Sturrock has done here, created a team which performs better than the sum of it's parts. It is something Mr Sturrock has done before at other clubs too which makes me wonder if he has some kind of formula...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Freddy Eastwood

    With Freddy there's only one place to start: has there ever been a better debut? I very much doubt it, and I include fiction in that. Scoring after just 7.7 seconds of your professional debut against the top of the table team before going onto complete your hattrick is the type of story that...

    Question Who is the naughty Premier League Footballer...

    That's been going 20 toes / heels to Jebus with Imogen Thomas? Naturally, you won't be able to post it on here, but feel free to PM me. I've heard a couple of names mentioned, but I wonder if anyone on here is actually ITK...

    Guitarist Gary Moore found dead

    Gary Moore has been found dead in a hotel room in Spain whilst on holiday. Heart attack, aged 58. We all have our favourites I know but to me, the man was incomparable. Naturally left handed but played right, his career encompassed Skid Row, Gary Moore Band, Thin Lizzy, G-Force, Colosseum II as...
