    South(north)end united football club

    Is Phil Brown northern bias ? Since he's been the gaffer Smith (northerner) has replaced Bentley(southerner). Cresswell (t' northerner) immediately installed as captain. He took off at half time then dropped Reeves (southerner) Put Mohsni (northern France) in midfield alongside Hurst,Lund...

    Academy Schools

    Does anyone on here have some knowledge on Academy school's? I ask because in a certain Academies case I find the whole set-up a bit worrying. In question for me is The Basildon Academies. I have a daughter at the lower site since September 2011 and my dealings with it have led me to go as far...

  4. The Reasons Why?

    A wee birdie told me to explain why certain players not signed up yet. Our new chief exec and the gaffer have been on holiday and the physio is also sunning himself. Plus some of his targets are holidaying and negotiating over the phone. Which means one or two of the main ingredients for players...
  5. Hmmm....it's a quandary

    Inspired by a Richard Bacon podcast with Johnny Vaughan. Now, if you have two Iphones (A & B), identical in every way apart from the fact that Iphone B has Angry Birds installed on it, does it weight heavier than Iphone A?

    Getting on my pips.

    So if the clinic that fitted/installed them wont remove them, the NHS will, which means because some woman wanted bigger tits weve all got to pay for her to get rid of them. ****ing ridiculous.
  7. The Craziest Parking Ticket you got or heard of.

    Lorry driver Michael Collins was on his way to collect a skip in London's Belsize Park when the road beneath him collapsed. A burst water main had created a deep hole where the front wheels of his 17-tonne lorry were stuck. While he was waiting for roadside assistance, a traffic warden appeared...

    Tickets for Bristol Rovers

    Oxford was my first game this season and as a season ticket holder until last season I feel deeply ashamed at this! But on two occasions over the last couple of weeks I've tried to buy tickets for the Bristol Rovers game on 26 November, only to be told by staff at the ticket office that they are...

    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...

    Lets try to crash The Zone

    Now that may seem daft to a lot of you, but as it is Tuesday and a quiet day on The Zone now seems as good a time as any to try this...As some of you are aware The Chat room has been causing problems on Match days by creating a leak on the server and eventually crashing the Zone. It has now...

    Club to experiment with free admission ?

    With attendances starting to dwindle, I understand that the Club is to look at possible ways to entice the so called 'marginal supporters' who might otherwise be tempted by the lure of neighbouring clubs such as Canvey , Chelmsford and even Braintree Town, to visit Roots Hall. It is not thought...
  12. I-Phone update

    All, Bit of a warning: Just updated the missus' I-phone which was working perfectly fine before this update. However once installed, the "Insert SIM" error message came up. Tried my SIM (not 3G) in her phone and it's fine. I've no idea how a software update ****s up hardware, but there's no...

    Football manager problem

    Anybody else ever installed the game and it doesnt create a link to the desktop. I cant play the game without uninstalling it and reloading and going with my saved game. Really annoying

    Broadband advice

    Guys Finally, just 9 days left until I can say my divorce is completely over. Unfortunately, in a last bit of spite, as himself is moving out of the family home, he has contacted all the utility companies and suppliers to cancel all the accounts payable by direct debit under his bank account...

    Plane Crazy!

    After every flight, UPS pilots fill out a form, called a 'gripe sheet,' which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft. The mechanics correct the problems, document their repairs on the form, and then pilots review the gripe sheets before the next flight. Never let it be said that...

    Virus/Trojan Removal

    Help needed from the more technically minded of zone folk. I appear to have a problem with my laptop, with my works remote access scanner picking up some random trojan?? Anyone any ideas how I get rid?? It's slowed my laptop down a lot! I have McAfee installed but it seems to be stalling when I...

  18. Car trouble...

    We have a 52 Renault Clio. Really reliable motor, until recently. Been finding that occasionally (maybe once a fortnight) it won't start. It'll crank but it never catches. However every time after about 5 mins of trying it'll finally start. I'm fairly relaxed about it, but Mrs Pubey isn't. It's...
  19. What's with the beer and the scoreboard?

    Now, I know it was the first game of the season and all that, but...... I've seen comments on here that the Shrimpers Bar only had bottled beer, and that it was warm bottled beer at that. Same went for the West as well except that the more astute of you would have noticed that it was also...

    FAO all Ron Martin believers, apologists, apathists: why I shall be voting option 5..

    Posters on this forum such as mcnasty & pboreham have questioned what a protest against ron will achieve & questioned the commitment of those participating, whilst also taking enjoyment from lampooning poor jack in the process. I don't claim to have the right...
