    Call Sam!

    It must be hard being Sam Allardyce. Whenever I imagine him, I see him in a big country house in the north of England, in a well-furnished front room where the only noise is the metronomic ticking of a towering grandfather clock in the corner. He sits alone in his armchair, surrounded by...

    A good clean Thursday afternoon joke.

    I never quite figured out why the sexual urge of men and women differ so much. And I never have figured out the whole Venus and Mars thing. I have never figured out why men think with their head and women with their heart. FOR EXAMPLE: One evening last week, my girlfriend and I were...

    Live Chat Thread

    Just had a look through the last few pages (I know, shouldn't stick my nose in where it doesn't belong). There are a number of comments that I am sure wouldn't be made in front of the subjects (thankfully not involving me). A few should just remember that their pictures of their faces, and...

    Col U, the very wet Irish, and SZ rogues gallery

    Saturday started off as any other of our travels over to see Southend: Leaving for the airport at 4am. Conditions were cold, but no rain. Yet. Arrived at the very rain swept Stansted at 7:55am to grab the bus later to Southend, and got dropped off on Victoria Avenue at 10:50. Rain was so bad...

    Interview with an Exile: Part 1 - Aberdeen Shrimper

    The life of an SUFC exile can be a lonely one at times - and one which is a difficult existence to understand for some. I thought by setting up this weekly thread, we would get the opportunity to get to know some of the exiled posters on SZ a bit better. This week, Aberdeen Shrimper goes under...

    Barry Fry

    Seems like we could be up against him in Pre Season, as its rumoured he's interested in the available job at The Daggers! I haven't heard anything about it myself, but their board is full of posts about him and it's supposed to have been mentioned on Sky Sports News.
  16. "Where's the money gone"...

    ... was one of the chants sung last night by those naughty boys in the West. However, the reality of the situation is that we are saving our pennies for the future (e.g. fossetts farm) and therefore sacrificing singing quality players. The obvious argument is there's no point having a...

    Question Agenda

    Guys and girls, Has anyone on here been to "Agenda" on Fernchurch Street? I'm off there tomorrow night for a mates birthday and was thinking of wearing a polo shirt, jeans and shoes. Is this acceptable up in the "City" or should I really be wearing a shirt?

    Smooth Operator: 27 ways to make girls smile.... NOT SUITABLE FOR EVERYONE

    Number 22 makes me laugh... 1. When she asks how she looks, shrug and say "could be better" - this will keep her on her toes. And girls love that. 2. Never hold her hand. This can be interpreted as a sign of weakness, (or if she grabs your hand, squeeze hers really really hard until she...

    A man enters a confessional and says to the Irish Priest, "Father I have sinned, it has been one month since my last confession. "I've had sex with Fanny Green every week for the last month." The Priest tells the sinner, "You are forgiven. Go out and say three 'Hail Mary's'." Soon...
