    Podcast 5: A collection of SUFC bits.

    Next up we have a small collection on offer. The end bid does not include P&P. A Nile Ranger shirt signed by most players, 2 SCP Mugs and an actual signed match ball from the old days....I am trying to recognise a signature to date it, but to little avail so far. Over to you lot to bid on this.

    Anyone recognise these names?

    Found some old reserve programmes from the early 90s- some of the names I'd not heard of before: Mal Grayburn Danny Sains Neil Rowbury any idea?

    Post a pic!

    It occurs to me that not being Man Utd or Arsenal - we all probably know or recognise plenty of SZ posters but have no idea who they are - re clever profile name game. So, post a pic and we will probably all recognise a few that we argue/banter with!

  6. Liam AAS


    Hi everyone, I recently wrote an article for www.thesetpieces.com about how much I hate timewasting. Having seen a lot of it by smaller teams over the last few years I hope it might chime with some of you. Most of you will recognise the reference to Timlin dribbling to ball into the corner at...

    FA Sunday cup- Priory Sports FC

    Thought i'd put a quick post on here as my sunday club are the only Essex side left in the FA sunday cup. This is a great competition and the football is very entertaining.

  9. Dear RM....

    Dear RM, oh exalted leader would it be at all possible to make a press release that involves nothing more than facts? Let the fans know a few things so that our debates are more informed. Is there an embargo? Does PB have a transfer kitty? Will the s106 be satisfied in the near...

    What are you going to do if you don't watch the Blues?

    There have been a lot of posts on here lately where posters have said 'enough is enough, I'm not watching this lot for the moment/ever again' (delete as appropriate). I often have moments when I think along those lines, but I'm still going. Of late I have been on decorating/tiling duty in the...

    My Aunt's Boyfriend

    I thought I'd tell you all a story. My uncle (my mum's brother) died in 2001. He had a heart transplant in around 1989-1990 and his new heart was finally rejected about 12 years on. He had got to a point where he was on the strongest anti-rejection drugs possible, so there was nothing more the...

    Question Overhead Kicks

    I was listening to Radio 5 last night after the England game, and they were talking about Sweden's fourth goal. Someone said that it wasn't the best overhead kick they had seen, and people should look on YouTube for Trevor Sinclair's for QPR. I did, and whilst doing so I came across this...

    Who was the player warming up with the 7 subs at half-time wearing No.25 on his shorts? Didn't recognise him, assume it must be one of the youths called up as cover.
