  1. iFollow streaming service for next season

    I've been having a quick look at the iFollow service, so this may be of interest to overseas fans, especially those based in Ireland. When the new service offering, for overseas supporters, live streaming of all league games next season was announced, I then went from ecstasy to agony within a...

    Eva Carneiro

    This story has been a bit weird from the day Jose got the hump with Eva Carneiro up to the tribunal case now. I'm not sure whether she is now pursuing a point of principle against Chelsea and Jose, or just going for gold. The settlement offer made by Chelsea seems a pretty good one to me...

The proposed date is 7th June 2016 and you should receive an email telling you very soon. If you are fortunate enough to have another mail account, gmail etc, then you will need to...

    Clement Attlee

    I'm going away for the weekend but my nomination for British hero is up for the first round this afternoon so here's why you should vote for him: Clement Attlee served as Winston Churchill's deputy in the War Coalition before winning the 1945 election and leading the most...

    Transfer Deadline Day, bit by bit.

    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 set his alarm clock early, power up his Blackberry, stay tuned to the news and scour the internet for rumours...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend Seek To Add To Scolari's Woes

    Don't panic on the first line, you haven't got the day wrong. This is for tomorrow's paper! Six months ago, who could have believed that Chelsea would see tonight’s trip to Southend as anything other than a formality? For just a brief period at the start of his reign, Luiz Felipe Scolari...

    Work dilemma

    Not been paid yet this month (second month out of three that it's been late). No warning given that it was going to happen; no apology that it has and no explanation as to why. Spoken to Nationwide and they say that there's no payment pending, so it isn't even being processed. As far as I'm...

    Chelsea Fall To Resurgent Roma

    This wasn't in the script. Chelsea were supposed to go to Italy, ease their way past a struggling Roma side and secure their place in the knock-out stages with two games to spare. The side that had suffered five consecutive defeats and were hovering above Serie A's relegation zone were supposed...

    Feed The Animals - Girl Talk

    If you like 2ManyDJs then you'll love this mash-up album. Here is the Rolling Stone review (they gave it 4 stars) "Big ups to the fair-use principle of United States copyright law: Pittsburgh DJ Gregg Gillis says that's what allows him to use hundreds of unlicensed samples in his music. On...

    Sepp Blatter

    You can say what you like about Sepp Blatter, and most people do, but he certainly doesn't lack the courage of his convictions. His proposal that football clubs should limit themselves to just five foreign players by 2012 is going to upset some very powerful people. Not that Blatter cares, of...
  13. A review from Neverland

    Well it all began last night at about 10pm with the suggestion of making the trip along the M25 and M4 to Swindon. Clearance was received from our driver's girlfriend and waking up after 6 hours sleep (watched the test match) to the tune of "we are going to Swindon", the excitment set in and...
  14. SUFC vs Swindon - Player ratings

    tough game and Swindon put up a good fight... we were rubbish in the first half but turn the screw in the 2nd and were good for the win. a lot of improvement in all areas is needed if we want to challenge for promotion but the weather was a leveller and so the 3 points were the main thing today...

    This is what we do with smartarses round here

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBXv5FISzjg I could watch this all day. You know how your mum always told you that if your budgie escaped it would be pecked to death by the crows who would be jealous of its beauty? This is that principle, applied to football.

    Would you support a readers wives section on Szone?

    Last night after I would say 6-7 pints at the SZBC, Josh C came up with the brilliant idea of a readers wives style section on the zone. This would of course be a 16+ area so as not to enrage the many younger readers parents. The basic principle is that we would have a adults only section where...

    Mortgage advice

    We're first time buyers and have recently received an "Agreement in Principle" for a mortgage. Does this mean that we have more or less for the mortgage or are there still more checks to be done?

    Southend United - How far have we come? Part 1

    Cast your mind back almost ten years; could you honestly see us reaching this pivotal moment in the history of Southend United? Back in 1998 the football club was skint; it couldn't pay its players, it couldn't pay its creditors, it couldn't pay the Inland Revenue; the future was so bleak that...
