    2017 General Election thread

    Quite the U-turn from her repeated denials... Surely only one result here to give her her beloved mandate to pursue a hard Brexit?

    RIP John Surtees

    A true champion and the only man to have won a championship at top level on two and four wheels. Something that I can never see being repeated. Horrible what happened to his son a few years back. A generally nice bloke and such a loss. RIP John Surtees.
  3. QPR the four year plan.

    If you haven't seen this programme, then you really should. Sky channel 117, London Live. It is being repeated on Sunday at 10:00 so set your sky+. It was a few years ago but follows the season when they had 5 mangers, eventually ending up with Neil Warnock and were promoted as champions the...
  4. Zone Update Starting Afresh Today

    Today it's League 1 again and during the close season we have allowed a lot of posts to be published that have caused concern to some members. We will not tolerate any abuse, trolling, pathetic attempts to justify repeated drivel or anything that lowers the enjoyment of the majority. I have...

    Pre-Match Thread Morecambe visit The Hall

    A week to go and we get the Shrimps to our house of the Shrimpers. Bits have been written already about out dreadful record against them & also what a pain in the arse Ellison can be. Sampson also scored his only "worldy" against us"..........never again to be repeated! Can we make it 5 from 5...
  6. BBC Essex Interview today

    I have just broadcast live to the people of Essex about the lack of a new stadium. Interviewed by James Whale and told him the thoughts of SZ. Should be repeated throughout the day. My parting words were "Get your purse out Ron"

    Repeated advertising pop-ups - how can I stop them?

    I keep getting a pop-up - well more of a slide-in from the side - advertising "Hot Deals". I assume they are something to do with tracking cookies as they are usually something to do with a thread I'm reading - trainers, even "chit-chat" wild bird seed! How can I stop these ad's appearing?

    Sky's Footballers Football Show

    Just in case this hasn't been mentioned elsewhere Phil Brown was on tonights show, which is repeated at 1.30 on SS1 (I think). I only saw about half of the show, but the two SUFC points that came out of it were that he was impressed with the quality of the players at the club. He then hinted...

    Another awful refereeing team

    At the start of the game today, when the ref moved a Shrewsbury player back to the correct position for a throw-in, I thought that it might be different today. However, leaving aside the inconsistency on disciplinary issues, the repeated warnings without any action resulting in further...

    Ticket office blues

    Anyone hoping to phone up and book Cheltenham tickets for Monday can expect a long wait. I've just spent 30 minutes waiting without success to get through, when I started as number 3 in the queue. (I'm sure this has been mentioned before but)why does the endlessly repeated answerphone message...

    Repeating words

    Noticed this a few times and assumed it was bad typing but it's happened enough to make me realise it's a bug. Words seem to be getting repeated when they cross the end of the last line of a post and the beginning of a next line. Yet if you quote it, only one is there:

    Gambling News

    Poor old skybet Lightning struck twice in successive days for one lucky punter as he netted himself more that £500,000 with two football accumulator bets with betting firm Sky Bet. Incredibly, the gambler wagered only £1,050 overall but was in luck as each of his ten teams delivered in the two...

    Articles Typed Up (For those who don't have access to them)

    For those of you that do not have access to the Echo, I have typed up some of the sections in the paper. I hope these are of interest to someone, and also hope it's OK to post them here. If there not - remove them.. I have posted them in the Echo thread, but people might not see them in there...
  15. Starsuckers

    Thought I'd give this docu/film it's own thread as it was one of the finest, eye opening bits of TV that I've ever seen. Originally on More 4 this week, it's a stunning expose of how the media manipulates everything from the Red Tops, up to our perceptions of politicians and their links to such...

    ESPN to air American Football on Monday Nights

    So it seems from Sept 14th ESPN will be showing the Monday Night match live as well as the 90 min pre-game programme Monday Night Countdown, in which host Chris Berman previews the evening's action. ESPN said they have taken this decision after the increase in UK fan base for NFL. The games...
  17. Ref Watch ..... Hartlepool away

    Saturday's big match will be refereed by Jock Waugh from Sheffield. He is in his first season as a League referee and has not previously refereed a Southend match although he did Hartlepool's 3-0 home win against Millwall back in December. He started his League career with two cardless games...

    Awkward moments at work

    Being aroused at work... Has this happened to you? So there we are sitting at the desk drifting after lunch on a cold winter's day as I normally do and I start thinking of smashing 7 shades out of Jennifer Lopez. I naturally get barred up and excited with a little smirk rising and a bulge in...

    Obviously the apparent perilous financial state is concerning me, but I have started to get niggling doubts about matters of integrity since rm's last blog. we owed around 6M according to the last accounts and RM went public around 6 months ago with a comment along the lines that the 2.4...
