    The cost of living in the south east

    Is it me or does anyone else struggle with the cost of living in the south east. I work for the NHS and so does the wife. We effectively haven't had a pay rise for 7 years. We earn the same in our roles as someone in say Carlisle. The main difference being that you can buy a house there for...

    Striking Coaches

    This seems to pop up from time to time about our strikers not having an actual striking coach. Graham Coughlan taking striking drills and having PB as our manager who is allegedly a defensive expert, who should take our strikers for the drills? Have we ever actually had a coach who would work...

    Dave has the hump with his local council!

    This made me smile on the BBC news this morning. PM leaning on local Tories?, naughty boy! David Cameron is involved in a row with the Conservative leader of his local county council over cuts to services. The PM has written to Oxfordshire council leader Ian Hudspeth saying he is "disappointed"...

    Top ten Wes Craven

    That I've seen at least 1 ) The Last House on the Left - a great remake of a Strindberg film, this is two halves: the first half, gruesome at it seems, is only a set-up for the revenge in the finale. 2) A Nightmare on Elm Street - a perfect 80s slasher but it was much deeper symbolically and...

    Question Are the players training in this weather?

    If Roots Hall is unplayable does the bad weather just mean they are confined to the gym or will we be able to do take our new signing through his role and his colleagues' roles on the training field?

    Employment Law After Private Company Takes Over Civil Service Role

    I wonder if the good people of SZ could give my partner and I some advice. At the moment she is employed by the MOD in an armed forces careers office. However this is one of the roles that has been tendered out to a private sector company and they will soon be taking over. The problem my other...
  10. Players roles

    I wonder what part, if any, Woodyard, Stevens, Smith and Nesbitt will play within the first team this season. Good young players but may find first team action tough to come by this year. Seen alot of photos of Stevens though in the pre season
  11. Player: Sturrock after Bradford

    * Bonding is very important for the players, wins bond players * Players had a traumatic month, with the whole pre-contract thing and all the off field stuff, then a tough start. * Near a settled team now, everyone getting to grips with their roles and subs working well * Doesnt know why Grant...

    Generation Kill

    Well, a bit late to the party but just finished watching all 7 hours and must say I thought that was a colossal piece of work. Brilliantly acted, stunningly filmed, really funny / sad / gripping / interesting. It probably won't get raved about as much as The Wire or various other HBO shows but...
  14. England's Second String Made to Swelter.

    A second string England team fell to a single moment of brilliance in Doha, in an otherwise completely forgettable international friendly. As has become a familiar case for the meaningless friendlies outside of qualification matters, the England side consisted of Wayne Rooney, Gareth Barry...
  15. Who would you get rid of completely

    Purely Hypothetical, If you had the opportunity to bomb a player(s) out on loan or permenatly, who would it be and why? I'll start with Freedman and JFC. We've got players who can play their roles and be more effective than they can. Oh yeah, let's try and keep this thread peaceful shall...

    Time to Boycott Lloyds

    They are keeping open their overseas operations. So Southend shuts, India stays open. Vote with your feet people, Natwest closed their overseas call centres a while ago and now have people in the UK answering their phones. I just cancelled my house insurance with the Lloyds group. That'll get...
  18. actors Born to play THAT role

    Been discussed between me and my pals quite a lot, what actors have played their roles so well that it makes you believe they were born to play that character. i.e. Arnie was born to play The Terminator. I can't think of anyone who could/would have played it better than him Same goes for...
