  1. Preview vs Sheffield United

    Hi all, A few weeks ago I wrote about your game vs Coventry for my betting blog (a good 3-1 win that day). I have previewed the match vs Sheffield United for this weekend - you can read it here. I hope the preview is of interest to the forum and you don't mind me posting! They look quite...

    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:
  3. Time for SUFC fans to revolt against the owners!

    I have been on holiday for last 2 weeks so only just catching up with everything that has been happening with in detail so apologies if i am repeating what others have said. I am so unhappy with how the club has been run and see no way forward with Ron Martin in control. He has proved he is not...

    Greece Manager: Otto Rehhagel Captain: Giorgos Karagounis FIFA Ranking: 12 Group B Background: This is only Greece's second World Cup, although a European Championships win and two other appearances often mask that. Before the appointment of Otto Rehhagel in 2001, Greece had only qualified for...
  5. Xavi Takes Centre Stage in Football Spectacle

    When two teams of the highest calibre collide, it wouldn’t be beyond the realms of possibility that they negate each other and the feature becomes something of an anti-climax. Not when Arsene Wenger and Pep Guardiola are around. No. This was special. Barcelona flew out of the traps as if to...

    Made Up Facts

    This is perhaps one to liven up an otherwise dull Friday. Made Up Facts seems to be sweeping various forms of media just now (popularised by Dominic Byrne off the R1 breakfast show). I'd imagine some of the more creative members of SZ will encompass this with all their talents... For example...
  7. Lee Barnard?

    I may be merely repeating previous comments/threads but.. selling Barnard may cost us survival (despite committed performances from both Vernon and Patterson). Barnard's ability cannot be replaced and 150k? Surely relegation would see greater losses than 150k? Ok we may have gone at the end of...
  8. You've got to hand it to him

    I've never met the man, so haven't seen his skills first hand, but you've got to hand it to him. Ron Martin must have incredibly slick PR skills. He seems to be like teflon. Whenever there is something bad to face, either someone else is put forward to take the flak or he somehow wins people...

    Silvio Berlusconi was criticised for again calling Barack Obama "suntanned" and extending the insult to his wife, Michelle. At a rally last night Berlusconi said: "I have to bring you some greetings, greetings from a man, what is his name, what is his name - just a minute it was someone with a...

    MILLWALL nothing changes.

    A little bit of history repeating itself perhaps? Div 3(S) No. 10 Saturday 6th October 1923 SOUTHEND UNITED 0-0 MILLWALL Millwall came to the Kursaal with very negative hard aggressive tactics, trying to spoil the game and they succeeded in so far as they gained a point, but in the 1920s...

    Gerrard Is The Write Stuff

    Steven Gerrard is the Football Writer's Player of the Year. That's better. You see, if you want something done properly, ask a journalist. Admittedly, that saying only holds water if what you want is to have someone drink all the beer in your fridge, or spell something incorrectly, but for once...

    Leon Constantine

    Has been released by Northampton. He played for two clubs that went down this season (Northampton and Cheltenham), repeating his trick of a few years back when he turned out for Peterborough and Torquay the year they both got relegated.

    Is Ashley The April Fool?

    When the watching world assumes that your latest managerial recruitment is an April Fool's prank, it doesn't exactly bode well for the future. Alan Shearer must have often dreamed about the reaction he would get if he ever slipped into the St James Park hotseat, but I bet he didn't expect...

    The Apprentice - week 1

    Whoever the 16th person was who "bottled it" before the tv stage, he enjoyed more air time than the majority of those on the men's team - Howard excepted. Tonight was all about the meltdown in the girls' team. Stepping up to the plate in week 1, Mona (surely the a and n are the wrong way round?)...
  15. Breaking News Ron's blog 24/02/09

    Whilst the rest of us were watching the match, Ron was emailing us his latest thoughts: I want to begin this week by thanking all our supporters who were able to attend the match at Colchester this weekend. The 1800 or so who made the journey across Essex showed, once again, what passion is...

    The Stiffs at Ipswich

    Well, not a patch on the 5-4 game last year and in many ways it was all a bit tame. They scored either side of the half time break, the second being from the spot after Lokando was sent off (deservedly really, though as it was only the stiffs the ref could maybe have bben lenient as it then...
