  1. Shaun Goater

    Just noticed that Shaun Goater has been appointed as manager of the newly re-formed (after liquidation) Ilkeston FC.

    Jemal Johnson

    Plays for Jacksonville Armada in the NASL. His career took off again after he moved back to the US after leaving Tamworth - he played for the Fort Lauderdale Strikers and the NY Cosmos before joining Armada in 2014. In December 2014, Johnson made the move to newly formed NASL club Jacksonville...

    Steve Bruce: Hull City manager leaves newly promoted club

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/36868495 Cue even more threads where PB will deny/show interest and more Zoners will get themselves in a state. For the moment this is General Football Forum fodder until the inevitable TV/Radio interview.
  4. Ref Watch ..... Bradford City H

    We haven't beaten Bradford City at home on a Saturday for over 50 years when goals from Firmani and Beanland got us off to a winning start on the opening day of the season. The referee in charge of tomorrow's match is fifth year official, James Adcock a 31 year old PE teacher from Long Eaton in...
  5. Three Wise (Dutch)Men from the East

    Had the pleasure of having a chat with three Dutchmen in the Spread after the game last night. Three friends on a football and rugby watching 10 day break in the UK, they'd managed to time it so they get to see 9 football games, at various levels, sandwiched around a trip to the Millenium...

    Two in running for under 21 manager role

    TWO coaches are in the running to become manager of Southend United's newly created under 21 team. More...

    Recent DIY wins

    I recently noticed the pressure gauge reading low on my combi boiler. I re-pressurized the system only to notice the pressure drop off again over the next few days. This pointed to a leak in the central heating system which could have involved ripping up newly laid floors at worst and at best...

    Cardiff City - The Bluebirds are back

    Cardiff have announced that they will be changing back to blue kits with immediate effect. Newly re-designed badge, with the bluebird returning, to follow shortly thereafter. Good news for Cardiff - wonder what mental stuff Vincent Tan will come up with next though....
  10. Ref Watch ....... The quintuple is still on! Leverstock Green FA Youth Cup

    Can we go out of all 5 cup competitions at the first hurdle ? Or will the youths save us from that embarrassment? Well it's ideal opposition; some would call it a straightforward home tie, at least one person would refer to it as a "banana skin". Leverstock Green, a village just outside Hemel...
  11. Ref Watch ......... Newport A

    Continuing our series of "We haven't won at ...... since ....", we don't have the best of records in Newport. We have won just once in 50 years and that was over 35 years ago when our 2-1 victory brought the curtain down on our successful 1977/8 promotion campaign. We only conceded 21 away...
  12. Ref Watch ......... Luton A

    "Little Red Rooster" was top of the pops; Harold Wilson had just become Prime Minister; the first ever Match of the Day (featuring Phil Chisnall) had just been aired on BBC2 which had itself only just started this year; the death penalty was in the throes of being abolished; Nigel Farage had...
  13. Ref Watch ....... Carlisle (A)

    A very long trip but a very short refwatch. Tomorrow's referee is newly promoted Chris Kavanagh from Manchester. He is, I believe, one of four such newly promoted referees. This will be his second ever League match the first one being Dagenham's defeat at Burton last Saturday which was...

    Names on seats

    So in despite of having a 'seaso' for donkeys years at Southend United, and the name on my season card being spealt correctly, the newly stuck on sticker on the back of my seat has my name on it spealt wrongly! I don't mind nor am I complaining, just wondered if this has happened to anyone...
  15. Ref Watch The Return of Refwatch Accrington (A)

    A new season dawns with our fifth consecutive year in this dreadful division which requires us to go to places like Accrington, as we embark on three away matches in 22 days with a combined distance of over 1,700 miles. There is an element of Groundhog Day about this match as for the third year...
  16. Did anyone else notice....

    Last night on BT sports watching the Gills crash out to Brackley (featuring Brett Solkhon who grew up on Canvey) I'm certain I saw Phil Brown lurking outside the makeshift commentary box up the precarious looking ladder. He wasn't under cover with the BT commentators one of whom was "Mad Dog"...

    Memory Lane Olympic 2012 Memories

    A lot of mine revolve around being a GamesMaker. I got to drive golf buggies and mobility scooters around Lee Valley, the OP and Hadleigh Farm. Quite special to be part of the Olympic team but also to undertake a mobility project of this size. Nothing comparable had ever been done anywhere in...

    England Not the Big Attraction?

    I have been watching the sky sports transfer centre and BBC sport like a hawk. Reading rumours and all the transfer news. But one thing is starting to show. England and the Premier League is slowly becoming less of an attraction for big players. Now my question is why? Falcao has chosen to...

    Dilemma

    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...
  20. Ron's Masterplan?

    I was pleasantly surprised to hear that Dave Penney has signed as Assistant Manager and that we have kept Graham Coughlan in a newly created post, First Team Coach. At a time when we were again late in paying our tax bill and some players, this appointment was , for me, quite a shock. In Brown...
