    Terry's Touch Of Class

    If there were any question marks still lingering over John Terry's suitability to captain England, they were blown away in Berlin with a moment of grace and humility that is all too rare in a game poisoned by money and egos. Terry could have explained away Germany's comical equaliser by blaming...

    Woeful Reds Ravaged By Redknapp

    The Tottenham Hotspur revival continues. Not content with robbing Liverpool blind in the League ten days ago, Harry Redknapp's resurgent warriors battered them in the League Cup as well. This emphatic and fully deserved 4-2 victory means that the North London side have racked up an astonishing...

    Barton Pushes His Luck

    Sorry chaps, forgot to upload this last night... Well, that didn't take long, did it? Just one week after his composed, match-winning performance against West Bromwich Albion, the halo above Joey Barton's head began to slip. Like all the best horror films, the metamorphosis from man to beast...

    Was That Really England?

    As the hangovers ebb away and the clean-up begins, a nation struggles to reconcile their fuzzy memories of the game with what they believe they know about their team. Was that really England crashing home four goals against Croatia? Were those white shirts actually passing the ball around the...

    We all hate Leeds scum

    An interesting article on a Swindon website. I know you lot enjoy the odd verse or two of this song aswell. We All Hate Leeds Scum? From Vitalfootball SwindonAt the last 2 Swindon Town matches a section of Town fans have started chanting, 'We all hate Leeds scum' but why? Let's be honest...

    West Sham

    Sometimes in life, when faced with inexplicable stupidity, there is a temptation to assume that perhaps it is you who is being stupid. When Steve McClaren decided to play long-ball to Michael Owen and Wayne Rooney in Russia last year, I briefly toyed with the theory that maybe, with his years of...

    Stupid England Get There Slowly

    The signs of improvement are visible, but Fabio Capello's mission to revitalise the England team is still some way from completion. There were moments, during this frustrating, attritional non-contest, of class and sophistication, but sporadic style couldn't eclipse the fact that this side are...

    Is Football ****ed?

    They say that a week is a long time in politics but, in football, it's a veritable epoch. This time seven days ago, Manchester City were struggling to pay their players, West Ham were enjoying their best start to a season in nine years and, at a surprisingly perky and entertaining Newcastle...

    Javier Mascherano

    Javier Mascherano could not have contributed more to Manchester United’s victory without latching onto a Paul Scholes through-ball and rocketing it past Pepe Reina. So far this season, the Argentine midfielder has been the perfect example of a modern, defensive midfielder, but this weekend he...

    Ever missed an interview through stupidity?!

    I was to have a job interview at Essex County Council today a 2pm. That is the date and time I wrote on the calendar and my diary. But when I came to re-open the pack to complete medical questionnaire I noticed the date of interview was yesterday. So has anyone else done this?!
  11. Air horn

    A SUFC steward today came to me and wanted to take away my 10 year old son`s air horn (apparently because it was too noisy). This steward's attitude reflected all that could be said in favour of being nothing but a jobs worth, he served no purpose than to frighten my son, really **** me off, and...

    Ticket question

    Forgive me for my stupidity here... I haven't got round to getting a ticket for tonight's game yet, but will be making way down and getting one before heading to the Spread for some pre-match refreshment. However, it's just occurred to me that I've not bought a ticket on the day for years. So...

    Ok - I'm stupid !

    Sitting here on the train as I am mulling over life, love and SZFC it has just dawned on me how Benji91 got his username (and I was at the game !) :p Coming from the same person that only realised a few years ago that the tide doesn't go out to Kent and back that's hardly surprising. :D will...

    Phone & Broadband Providers

    Well, the monstrously incompetent Bulldog have really outdone themselves this time by closing my account and disconnecting my phone line... because they failed to put a £99 credit in my account which they've owed me since January. To be honest, part of me is quite pleased to be no longer...

    West Brom Surprise

    Last week it was my birthday and, as a great (and huge) surprise, my missus found a brilliant way of getting me to the airport last Friday and handing me tickets to fly over for the West Brom game. I was stunned. All had been arranged for a long time with my brother. Before I knew it, I was in...

    The fbm view and ratings

    LAST GASP GOWER MAKES A POINT Mark Gower was the stoppage time hero as he lashed home the 6th and equalising goal of a pulsating thriller under the lights at Roots Hall. This is a game that will live long in the memory of the 11000-plus fans who were fortunate enough to witness the 100 mph...
  18. Do You Live In 2006?

    You know it's 2006 when... 1. You go to a party, sit down and take MySpace pics. 2. You havent played solitaire with real cards in years. 3. The reason for not staying in touch with your friends is that they don't have AIM/MSN/MySpace. 4...
  19. The fears realised

    Here we go. Tilly has now said he has to dip into the transfer market to bring in two or three fringe players. We should already have them. They should have jelled with the team and be ready and raring to go. Now we have to hope that we can find something half committed or able that may have to...

    5,000 and counting ! I'd like to thank everyone for continuing to put up with my mindless drivel and stupidity. Amongst the 5,000 there is the odd serious post. No celebration of this milestone would be complete without:
