    Players known by their first name

    This occurred to me when listening to a US sports podcast and one of the hosts ripping another for calling a Patriots player 'Danny' as opposed to 'Amendola' or 'Danny Amendola'. The other defended it by saying that is just how he is known among the fan base - Danny. So which players over the...

    Long story, power cuts and a water dowser.

    If I had posted this when it started, it may have had the legs to match MK's fridge post. So i'll keep it short but you may get bored. Earlier this year, probably February time, I saw some damp patches on the left side outside wall of my house. Thought they would dry up but they didn't. We...

    In light of Pubey's latest request for advice, I am posting in the hope of someone being able to help us with the little problem we have with our porch. Basically, the old wooden side panels, doors and columns are all being replaced on 23rd with uPVC. The top part of our porch is still the...

    Recent DIY wins

    I recently noticed the pressure gauge reading low on my combi boiler. I re-pressurized the system only to notice the pressure drop off again over the next few days. This pointed to a leak in the central heating system which could have involved ripping up newly laid floors at worst and at best...

    Ripping DVDs

    Ahoy. Can anyone recommend decent free DVD ripping software for PC. My new laptop doesnt have a DVD drive so I plan to rip to a removable hard drive and transfer. What is the best file format to rip to. It would be good if I could maintain the menu etc. Cheers.

    So as far as I can see no one paid any money for Mohsni This means he is still a Southend player and under contract for 1 year. We were offered £150 000 from West Ham and turned it down. I would imagine we thought that offer would be improved upon but sadly it wasn't. I have not heard any...

    Splash some cash at the club today

    With apologies to the seaso's who have already paid over the odds to watch League two football out of their intense loyalty to the club, may I encourage all to dig deep into their pockets today and pay the inflated prices for burgers, coffees etc. If this 'experiment' with reduced admission...

    Comic Relief

    This has almost certainly been covered before, what's the SZ view on Comic Relief in particular as it's almost upon us, and charities in general? From a personal stand point I've never given a penny to Band Aid, Children in Need or Comic Relief. My personal belief is that charity should begin...

    Question Less than the sum of our parts...?

    The potential signing of Lee Sawyer (which I bloomin' well hope comes off) has got me thinking... why is it that we're not doing better in the League? What's not working with this side? After all, we now have a potential line-up as follows: ________________________Morris_____________________...
  14. A PLEA!! - Time to get off the players backs at home

    Right now we have shown what we can do away from home and BS has scored, can I make a plea to those who keep ripping in to our players? My plea is simple, please get off their backs and give them support so they see we are behind them and then their confidence may grow and we could start winning...

    Rebuilding the squad

    Rebuilding the squad has many implications, none more important than the fact that we've got no songs for any of the players. Even Granty, the one surviving first team player never had a proper song, despite being one of our best players. I therefore urge all SZ members to come up with an...

    Bullies and Bullying

    Now bare with me good readers, this is going somewhere but I want to give it some background first. When I was a kid I was bullied, bad. My first taste of it was at the grand old age of 4 years old at nursery school where a phycotic 5 year old used to attack the entire fraturnity. He would rip...
