    Syria air strikes

    http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-34950778 Think this topic now deserves its own dedicated thread. Always been impressed by Mark Rylance -either on the stage or in front of the cameras. Good video here on which countries are actually bombing in Syria already.Must be getting fairly crowded in Syrian...

    Help for Hullbridge

    Afternoon SZ'ers If you get 2 minutes can you please vote to help Riverside Primary School receive £25,000 to repair, refurbish and reinvent the school swimming pool. By fixing the swimming pool we would be able to offer swimming lessons to all of the children at the primary school as well as...

    The Clock Ticks On

    From Mark Steyn: The world divides into those who sincerely believe in that "Coexist" sticker and those who think it's a delusional evasion. After all, if it weren't for that big Muslim crescent "C" at the front, you wouldn't need a bumper sticker at all: That peace-symbol "O"? It's Muslims...

    Primary Education

    Throwing this question out to the SZ family.... My daughter who is now 4/5 months needs a placement at a primary school as you need to look at options early to get a place, we live in Rayleigh (as hockleys favourite son I am only on loan to Rayleigh and some day to return) and we are looking at...

    Impartial life advice :-)

    Afternoon all! Been a while since I last posted (but I'm a regular "lurker"). I'm after some impartial advice... Basically, I live in Rochford with our two young children. One is in pre-school, the other in year one at primary. Although we like where we live, we've often considered...

    The Lets Expose The Labour Party Wrong'uns Thread

    As some of those who like to post in this forum seem to really enjoy taking swings at UKIP, I thought it was about time the favour was returned in spades just to show that there are plenty of wrong'uns who nail their colours to The Labour Party mast. Here's a couple of links to be getting on...
  9. Ref Watch ..... Bristol Rovers

    I'm glad I didn't do this yesterday; the referee has been changed from the original appointment of David Coote (who looked a little out of his depth in the admittedly not easy home match against Stevenage which gave him his first ever red card). So instead of one full-time FA employee, it's...

    Battle of the Bobbys

    SBH's thread which listed Bobby Moore as a legend but not Bobby Charlton got me thinking. My understanding was that in the 1960s or 1970s if you said you were English to a foreigner, the foreigner would reply "aah, Bobby Charlton!" How come Moore has replaced him as the iconic English...

  13. Howdy everybody

    Hi everyone I'm Mark, 25 and have been a Blues fan since I got a cheapo ticket at Primary School and made my Celtic supporting Dad take me nearly every week from then on. I've been exiled to Surrey for about 7 years now so getting to games is few and far between these days. Mostly away days...
  14. Ref Watch ........ Swindon away

    Interesting (well, slightly) referee appointment for our visit to the Paolo di Canio circus on Saturday. Man in charge, Dean Mohareb from Stockport, is in his first season as a League referee. The former primary schoolteacher has moved swiftly through the refereeing ranks and he won't have been...

    Teaching Assistants - no good!

    Apparently Teaching assistants are a waste of time and teaching on the cheap! Teaching assistants 'do not help improve grades', report into Pupil Premium spending finds Teaching assistants have 'no effect' on improving grades, an influential report has suggested. A study into how best to...

    The 1953 Floods

    I hope the following is of some interest, on a Saturday afternoon in 1953 Southend United played a poor game of football, the crowd had a good old moan and then went home totally unaware of the disaster that would hit locally in a few hours time. Saturday 31st January 1953 Southend United 1-0...

    Trolling has been defined as: "In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking other users into a desired emotional response or of...

    The Blues or The Shrimpers?

    I know that this has been discussed before, but with the current positive vibes emenating from RH, is it time to consider moving back to "The Shrimpers" rather than the rather generic "The Blues"? I don't follow "The Blues", I follow "The Shrimpers". The club's nickname should relate to its...
