  8. First Post - Take a step back

    Have been a supporter of the club for about 40 years and now attend with my 10 year old son. Have been a passive SZ member for a while but felt the need to add my thoughts after this season so this is my first post. Like everyone was bitterly disappointed not to seal a Wembley spot last night...

    PC help please.....

    Since Wednesday, for absolutely no reason at all as far as I can work out, my PC has decided to log itself out of my regular pages so it doesn't retain the passwords and stuff any more. I don't think anyone has done anything to it to make it do this, and I've re-selected the option for IE to...

    Has Tara's Season ticket gamble backfired

    I for one thought the hike in season ticket prices was a big mistake after all the negatives of the last couple of seasons.Without the definate start of Fossetts before the season ,thought it was imperitive to try and retain as many of the core supporters until things on and off the pitch...

    Question If you could hand pick next season side..

    If you were given the option of who to retain and who to cut for next season (Forget contracts for the sake of debate) who would be in and who would you lose. In light of the fact going down to me seems certain I am going to wield the axe. I am not including the kids in my in/outs either. GK...
