  1. Can a laptop be restored to its former glory?

    Basically I've had my lap top since about the end of 2013. Sadly it seems to be winding down. It's getting slower and slower and things like logging on take longer. Anyone got any tips to try to get it back in decent shape again or is it looking at the knackers yard with the next year or so...
  2. Close Season Speculation Rules

    Not the first time I have posted this, but as this is our first transition to a higher division since 2005-6 perhaps you will forgive me reminding you of the Rules of Engagement: I love this time of year, it's always the same: 1. Random names are posted on SZ with the assurance that "inside...

    BBBC - the legend

    Great to see Corr:Worthy: restored as the focal point of our attack. It's no coincidence that him being belatedly restored to the line-up has seen us improve. Some stats for you: Games the legend that is Barry Corr:Worthy: starts W 6 D 2 L 2* Games the legend that is Barry Corr:Worthy: is...

  6. Just how far did we 'progress' this season?

    It's a word that I've seen bounded about on here and heard it mentioned by many post play offs. How we have progressed this year, Sturrock's second full season in charge. I suppose points wise and final placing in the table suggests we have improved under Luggy, but after five days since we drew...

    Memory Lane SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Ian Benjamin

    It's the answer to the most famous question in Southend United history: who put the ball in the Bury net? And as every Southend fan will gleefully tell you: Ian Benjamin, Ian Benjamin. Now this poll's been a long time coming*, but in some ways that's apt. *He received the required nominations...

    Breaking News Ron's Blog

    I feel that I should be letting you have my thoughts and feelings about the season now it is effectively at an end but I promised that I would answer all the questions that are put to me and I am continuing to do so. However I will need to bring this to an end soon as it was only meant to span...

    Terry's Touch Of Class

    If there were any question marks still lingering over John Terry's suitability to captain England, they were blown away in Berlin with a moment of grace and humility that is all too rare in a game poisoned by money and egos. Terry could have explained away Germany's comical equaliser by blaming...

    Mr Motivator

    No-one can be entirely sure of what is being said in the England dressing room at half-time, but if these second half performances are anything to go by, President Bush should consider hiring Fabio Capello to have a quiet word with Wall Street. That credit crunch would be turned around in no...

    One month loans

    Seeing as we have by my reckoning three of them (Sawyer, Christophe, Federici, possibly HRK) whatever happens next with these guys is going to be important in our season. Obviously we're keen to get high quality players in for as long as possible where normally we might not be able to prise...
  16. Morgan Tsvangirai Possibly Quitting...

    Since its the last day of term at uni, the task of packing has ultimately turned into a quest of procrastination for which the BBC News website comes in handy. However, their main headline really troubles me which concerns the possible resignation of Morgan Tsvangirai from Zimbabwe's election...

    The Olympics

    I went along this afternoon to see the Olympic Flame pass through our nation's fine capital. I for one, am excited about the prospect of the Olympics coming to Britain in 4 years time. For me there is something special about the Olympics going all the way back to its roots in Ancient Greece...
