    Being patriotic doesn't make you a fascist

    An interesting read, especially considering some of our recent discussion and debates on here. I'm a firm believer in this idea, and thank you Mr Billy Bragg for writing about it in this morning's Telegraph. ----------- A poll published this week suggested that the English were the least...
  2. My Dave Webb Conspiracy Theory......

    I am beggining to think that Dave Webb's arrival at the club as "assistant manager" is a smoke screen for a more deeper role at the club. Let me explain my thought....Webb has previous Chief Exec status at L1 Yeovil, SUFC are up S&*t street and desperately need new investors- Dave Webb has...

    Bristol rovers at Exeter tonight.

    Now I normally refuse to back an away result but Bristol Rovers are at Exeter tonight. Now you can get with Hills 2.70 on an away or 1.60 on a X or Away. The second in particular seems to good to be true? Exeter were pretty **** on saturday and Rovers seem to be going like a bomb? Thoughts?

    Too much at stake to go bust......

    Folks, I've kept myself deliberately quiet this past week or so and been quite content to let everyone else post their thoughts and opinions about everything that's been going on around the club of late. That's not because I don't have opinions myself, far from it, I just didn't see the point of...

    Seeking opinions.....

    from the great and the good on SZ. Ok, as you probably may have picked up, things this summer have been pretty crap all round. My daughter has been invited by her boyfriend's parents to go on holiday to Spain with them at half term. Both of them are 15, his parents have booked a 3 bed villa...

    Refuse collection.

    I'm sure many homeowners, cats and foxes are aware that household refuse will be collected one day later this week due to the bank holiday. My question is how does refuse collection get back in sync? I have never seen a dustcart operating at a weekend so I can only assume refuse collectors...
  7. Question Most important pre-season question

    Ok, so it's a slow day at work! But still a question of vital importance. Towards the end of last season the club banned food i.e. large whale & chips from the Fish House, being taken into the ground, but then relented after 1 match IIRC. However it was stated, not for the 1st time, that only...

    Spain Pacify Iraqi Resistance

    Spain 1-0 Iraq Villa 55 The trouble with winning well is that it never goes unnoticed. For every barnstorming 5-0 victory, resplendent with glorious passing and breathtaking goals, there's always a coach out there somewhere who watches it and thinks, 'that's not going to happen to me.' More...

    A Recovery Nightmare

    It all started normally. Flat battery in South Woodham Ferrers, clutch gone on an VW Camper in Westcliff another flat battery at Southend Hospital. All run of the mill stuff. Then I got a call for an Ford Scorpio in Pitsea with a wheel bearing gone and needing recovery to Great Yarmouth. That'll...

    Windows Updates

    Is anybody else suffering from Windows Updates issues on XP? The past couple of weeks each time I've switched off the laptop it has defaulted to the Turn Off & Install Updates option but nothing ever seems to happen. I've had a check and it seems as if there are 3 updates that refuse to...

    Media Catch On To Redknapp's Failings - At Last

    It's taken about 10 years but finally someone working in the media has articulated the same opinion I have held about professional ****ney loudmouth Harry Redknapp. From today's Mirror. I watched an old fella suffer badly the other night. My 71-year-old father-in-law has followed Burnley...

    New Players - Midfield

    Just wondering after Wednesday Night. Do we need to strenghten the centre of the park? Ive said for a while that the likes of Moussa and Grant should be given a chance and in the past few weeks, Grant in particular has looked much better. With Macca and JFC as well i think we look ok in the...
  13. I need a plan...

    Slightly odd question... How do i convince my parentals to let me go on the train to the Stockport game? (I'm 16) I need to go in with a good tactic otherwise they'll flatly refuse and i won't get my fix of proper football! I'd be going with my Blackpool fan friend on account that no-one else i...
  14. If Trafalgar was today..

    Nelson: "Order the signal, Hardy!" Hardy: "Aye, aye sir." Nelson: "Hold on, that's not what I dictated to Flags. What's the meaning of this?" Hardy: "Sorry sir?" Nelson (reading aloud): "'England expects every person to do his or her duty, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation...

    Brighton's New Stadium

    Brighton's New Stadium starts on 17th Dec Dream will become a reality when work starts on Falmer Some dates are imprinted in the minds of Albion fans. May 21, 1983, and April 26, 1997, are two obvious examples. Now December 17, 2008, can be added to the list. A quarter of a century after...

    Waste Disposal

    What with the new refuse collection malarkey, which basically means you have to store waste food for up to a week, I was thinking a waste disposal unit might be a good idea. Obviously it needs to be plumbed in and fed with electric. Has anyone fitted one? Do they plug in or are they hard wired...
  17. Phil Jupitus/Brian Dear

    I don't know if anybody else has posted this from Phil Jupitus' column in today's The Game section of the Times:- "Recently I met Brian Dear, a West Ham great who, in April 1965 scored 5 times in a 6-1 trouncing of West Bromwich Albion, a record for the quickest 5 goals that still stands today...

    Brand disloyalty

    Passing through Heathrow the other day, I saw a lot of adverts for that airline XL. First thought was - "That's the mob who sponsor those tossers West Ham" That then got me thinking - would I avoid putting business their way because of that? I'd certainly not be inclined to go to their website...

    Cristiano Ronaldo

    Cristiano Ronaldo must be the luckiest man in football. Had it not been for that slippery patch next to the penalty spot, or for Nicolas Anelka's almost total absence of professionalism, his spot-kick miss at the Luzhniki Stadium would have cost Manchester United the European Cup. In this...

    The B.N.P.

    So, they have done extremely well again this year, coming 5th in the london Mayoral Vote. But do we really know the truth about the B.N.P? Have you actually read the manifesto and mission statements? Ok, so they are a bit far right of the middle, but they want the best for this country. In my...
