rants

  1. Thatchers Children

    To save hi-jacking the Brexit thread I thought people might like to explain who they first voted for and why. Lets keep it to your personal reasons so no need to repeat to many grand and well covered anti Thatcher rants etc. I had left school in 1981 so my first vote was for Labour in 1983. If...
  2. Apprentice 2017

    Anyone for the usual yearly sweepstake (that I never win). Half to the zone, half to the winner. Probably 16 entrants....name below please. MK

    I'm a Celeb - sweepstake

    10 entrants plus some possible surprise contestants, so will do a wild card entry. anyone who picks the wild card gets all of the new people if there are any, or bad luck if there isn't. So we need to sell 11 tickets at a fiver, 30 quid to the winner £25 to the Zone. First come first served...

    X Factor Sweepstake?

    I thought I would test the water with this idea. We do the apprentice every year and I know people enjoy a cheeky bet and the hope of winning some money and it's always good because half the money goes to the running of the zone. Not sure how this one would go down as I don't know how many...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Chesterfield 2-1 Southend United

    Put your ratings and no doubts rants here. Please can someone who went explain to me where 6 mins added time came from?
  6. IMPORTANT - Fantasy Premier League

    Hi all, There seem to be a lot of 'random' entrants into the league. My guess is that someone is mining league codes and people are joining lots of them. So I've gone through the list of league players and have kicked out players who I don't think have any link at all to SZ/SUFC. If I've...
  7. Football rants

    http://www.theguardian.com/football/quiz/2013/aug/06/football-quiz-manager-rants I scored a measly 4/10 by some random guessing.

    PL Weekly Points Points for Round 57

    A disappointing "season low" of25 entrants this week, thanks to each of you for sticking by us whilst matters "on the field" become more crucial than at any time in the season I mentioned in the fixtures thread about the random nature of the play offs had meant some vastly different outcomes...

    PL Cup The SZ PL Christmas Cup 2011

    Regular players will be familiar with this little sideline, but for the forgetful (:harry:) and the newbies ... As players you do nothing different, each week H will slap the fixtures up (maybe even the full compliment of 6 even !!!) and you predict as ever you would, i'll wander along over the...

    Deadpool 2010 results - finally

    Finally decided to tally this up myself, so please check your own and let me know if I've made any glaring errors. We had 44 entrants. I'll start by listing all those with 0 points, then 1 point and so on... Original thread for checking results 0 points: East stand blue LDNFATSO Moody blues...

    The A13 from Tarpots to Kiln Road

    Blimey, I'm on a roll with rants atm! Anyone been up or down Bread and Cheese in the last few days? What a joke! There's bits of bus lanes being put in on different sides of the road, so there's a bus lane going west, down the hill but at the lights there's a bus lane on the Southend bound side...

    New John Sitton vid on Youtube...

    Anyone that has seen some of my posts on Facebook and Twitter will know that I am a big fan of former Orient manager, John Sitton - probably because he represents the nutter I would inevitably turn into if I too had to motivate a bunch of under-performing wasters at the bottom of the League...

  14. Pointless rants

    I don't come on SZ half as often as I used to. Partly because I'm a conscientious worker, but mainly because we keep having the same tired debates week in week out. So, my rant is this. Which 'rant' topics would you like to see banned from the board? I'll start off with: - We've got no money...

    Charity Killer Predictions

    Ok, following suggestions in the other thread and with that comp nearing a conclusion due to everyone's inept punditry, another comp has surfaced. This time the winner will get to nominate a charity to donate the prize to. It's £50 as it stands. As this is a new comp, I'm happy to take a few...

    PL Cup WC Cup Competition

    Alongside the WC League competition we will be running a knockout Cup comp too .. much like the Christmas Cup and Spring Trophy that regular Prediction Leaguers will be already familiar with, i'm not totally certain of how this particular cup will pan out as Harry has an idea up his sleeve which...

    We Few, We Happy Few...

    Come on now, let’s see those chins off the ground. This is what supporting Southend is all about, isn’t it? Agony, frustration and the feeling that the world is ganging up on you? That’s what we do. Ain’t none of us here who signed up for success, glory and blanket coverage on Sky Sports...
