    NHS Junior Doctors Industrial Action

    It's probably time to open up this particular issue. NHS Junior Doctors are taking industrial action for the first time in 40 years. So, is it ever right for medical staff to take this sort of action? The BBC took a poll very recently to see what patients' views towards this action were. Two...

    I don't often post on SZ, but this is a piece I wrote after we lost Martin 5-years ago. I hope Zone regulars don't mind me re-posting it. Miss you Martin - RIP mate, and to all the fellow Shrimpers we've lost who are still close to our hearts xxx It’s 4:40pm some Saturday afternoon... in the...

    Slipper of the Yard

    Wonderful article here by one of my favourite journalists/commentators, Mark Steyn: “He was always affable and very much a gentle giant,” said Bruce Reynolds. “He was one of the old school,” agreed one of Mr Reynolds’ colleagues. Gentlemen publishers? Art dealers? Yes, Mr Reynolds has a...

  9. My only roots hall vist this season

    Felt the need to write a quick note as i dont get to do this much living in Australia. You would think the older you get and the less you see of your team the more your interest wanes. How wrong! I was so excited and couldnt wait for the game to start. It was like being a teenager again. All...

    British Sign Language

    My wife is a teacher and she is learning BSL as part of her job as a languages teacher, and the fact that her school is the local Hearing Impaired Unit for the area. Anyway, as an act of solidarity I'm learning with her and would just like to say: Sorry for any offence and I shall...

    A bright new day dawns in Suffolk

    There is not a breath in the air, all is still as the sun starts its journey up into an expectant crystal clear blue sky only streaked with early plane trails off to foriegn lands (and Cole Ewe). An early morning frost is quickly burnt away - the chill dawn will soon warm up, and the first...

    Red Riding Hood - The PC Version

    There once was a young person named Little Red Riding Hood who lived on the edge of a large forest full of endangered owls and rare plants that would probably provide a cure for cancer if only someone took the time to study them. Red Riding Hood lived with a nurture giver whom she sometimes...

    How stupid do we want to appear?

    Let's see. We're struggling in the league - in no small way due to injuries and suspensions at key times. But we are mainly playing teams that have proven pedigree and quality. Yes, we're on a bad run and may well get a club record of successive games without a win. But we also...

    Fly the Flag with Pride

    The Podcast Issue

    Let me put something straight. I was NOT against the podcast; jokey comments might have been interpreted as such but I was not against it. My train of thought is as follows: Firstly, the concept of the podcast was indeed innovative, if not the first in the country or the world. But by limiting...

    Just seen the goals

    And thought I'd raise a few points from seeing it on telly. o First goal, Wayne times his run magnificently. Not much chance for the keeper and the defence will always struggle unless the late run is tracked Good work. o Their first. Disappointed that from a standing position the lad got...

    40 responses : 45% - WOULD return to the North Stand 55% - WOULD NOT return to the North Stand Of those who used to stand on the North Bank, just 50% would return, the other half quite happy to stay where they have migrated to. The older fans are also less inclined to move to the North Stand...
