  1. Tangled up in Blue

    The "like" button?

    (Not trying to be funny) but when do you tend to use it and why? Personally I tend to use it for a post that makes me laugh or that I agree with strongly. Sometimes also for a post that is well-written but expresses a different viewpoint to mine or makes me think. And you? Definitely prefer...
  2. 20 games in

    So with 20 games played, what do people think about the players so far. I say players because we have had endless PB threads so lets not go over the same old ground. Yes we started bad and we all know the reasons. The first 10 games we collected 11 points. In the last 10 games we have won 17...

    Just in case you want to know

    It's been a long hot summer so far and there has been some pretty strongly felt feelings posted on here, especially in Chit-Chat. As with all things, strongly held views can sometimes manifest themselves in a heated way. I've just reminded myself of what some of the SZ basic rules are, and I've...

    Question How much should? could? we strengthen

    I've just noticed that since the Ist October and the closed period only 4 clubs have not added to their squad, us being one of them. During this period, following the transfer deadline, clubs of course can only bring in loan or unattached players. Not exactly quiet, 43 players have been signed...

    John Bercow's expenses.

    It looks as if John Bercow is going to feature strongly in the news over the next few days. According to the BBC report below he has clocked up £34k of expenses over the past year. I don't think there is a suggestion of wrong doing, but you would think that the Speaker of the House would be a...
  8. Line Up for second leg

    Maybe I'm getting carried away here ; but I strongly feel that this line up for the second leg would destroy them (they simply cannot run/pass through teams); Bentley White Bolger Barrett Coker Weston Timlin (if fit) Payne Worrall Pigot Corr
  9. Question Should the FA allow smoke bombs?

    So I thought this question would start quite the debate, and as I know some people feel more strongly than others about this matter. But I am seeing more and more clubs every week with fans releasing smoke bombs, so I know it is extremely unlikely that they would allow them but would this be a...

    Do we think we are really doing enough to best develop our younger players?

    First off Quite an impressive debate has been raging about whether some of our youngsters in the development squad ( Layne, Brown , Williams) should get a shot at first team action for their development and experience and when. Equally strongly some take the view it is in their best interests...
  11. Bottom Half??

    I've got a 5 team ante-post accumulator on and 4 out of the 5 are strongly odds-on which leaves me with only one team likely to screw me over. The team in question is Southend and I took them at Evens to finish in the bottom half of league 2. A few weeks ago I had completely given up home but...

    Rotherham Council

  14. Payday and doorstep lenders

    Just seen Jo Swinson MP act as the coalition apologist for payday lenders. A truly sorry episode. Anyone considering taking a payday loan (eg wonga, quickquid etc) or doorstop loan (eg provident, pinewood, greenwood etc) should think extremely carefully before doing so. If you are in the sort...

    Charlie hebdo

    Pour calmer le jeu après le film Innocence of muslims, Charlie annonce avant tout le monde la sortie d'Intouchables 2! Également dans le journal, les paradis fiscaux de Bernard Arnault, les religieux qui s'engagent pour le mariage homo, et la presse lèche-cul qui remplace la presse...

    The unsavoury side of football - racist chanting against Balotelli

    After the shaking of heads and wagging of fingers at the Chelsea fans for their singing about Anton Ferdinand (anyone else find this a really strange incident bearing in mind Terry has played alongside Rio Ferdinand for years at the heart of the England defence?) on Tuesday night against Genk...

    Twitter followers...do you follow anybody you don't like and why???

    Following on from the Glasgow Shrimper thread in the main forum, and somebody mentioning the fact of why do people follow him if they don't agree or like his tweet's, I got stuck in a deep trance for all of five minutes at the desk, trying to understand why we follow people we don't like. The...
  18. (18+) The c-bomb in films/TV shows?

    So settling down to another HBO series (Game of Thrones) and it's clearly obvious that more and more US films and TV shows are dropping the c-bomb. We watched Bridesmaids (a 15) and it was dropped, and I commented that it seems to me to be more used and maybe more acceptable in the US, which is...

    The Fish Fight

    (Not sure if I have posted this in the correct Forum but if not am sure a Mod can move- thanks). Has anyone else been watching the various TV programmes hosted by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsey? I had read about the Discard practice before but did not realise the...
