  1. Usain Bolt loses a Gold

    Oops, he ain't going to be happy. The fastest man ever (probably) has lost a gold medal due to Nesta Carter taking a banned substance. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/athletics/38744846
  2. Does Phil play politics ?

    I was very shocked a good while ago when some-one suggested to me that Phil was quite suggestible and susceptible to listening to opinions on selection and players form from the Chairman and his circle. Given that we have not got a keeper fit for purpose and given RMs love of transfer fees I...
  3. Style or Substance?

    Following on from the surprising number of 'zoners who claim that they would prefer to see us play good football and fall short of promotion rather than "win ugly", I wondered if they were still of that opinion when promotion is now in our own hands, to win or lose.....

    Latest Rumours PB to Derby

    And a placeholder for the next dozen manager sackings. This is no more a waste of a post than other PB out/manager vacancy threads more a plea to link all of them together for the time being as there is no substance or viability in any of them.
  5. Food for thought

    Pompey Supporters' Trust chairman Ashley Brown says the group has proved it is capable of running Portsmouth. A year since former Pompey owner Balram Chainrai dismissed the group's bid as having "no substance", the PST has 2,170 shareholders, owns 59.3% of the club and has raised nearly £2.5m...

    Actor Michael Clarke Duncan of Green Mile dies aged 54

    Actor Michael Clarke Duncan dies. (like the cloth colouring substance but spelt different) of heart attack. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-19472267

    Hi guy`s ! I have been exiled in cornwall for the last 26 years, although i now only get to see one or two matches a season. I still have strong Essex contacts who are blues followers, so i get plenty of info and feedback on whats rumoured to be going on around the club. Do you guy`s think...

    Cricket World Cup (50 Overs)

    England have announced their squad, with Prior coming in, somewhat out of the blue, for Davies being the main surprise. Also very disappointed that Tredwell and Wright have made the cut. They seem like good pro's to go on a tour where they may not play and spend most of their time fielding as...

    Are we that surprised really?

    My first post for a while, have been lurking and reading with interest. Is this the worst state the club has ever been in? Well, I remember the dark days of the 1980's when we were hours from extinction. It was different. I can't remember if it was worse, but it was different. The only...

    Stubborn Floaters

    Evening Chaps! I've had a few pints of Dublins finest and to put it bluntly, it loosened my bowels and caused me to have a gargantuan movement. As expected, it was a mixture of gravy and meatballs, but this time, things are eerily different. I flushed the carzie, washed my hands and settled...

    SZ team of the year

    Following on from the SZ Annual Awards, here's my team of the year: GK - Firestorm, his consistency and the fact that very little gets past him makes him a natural to go in goal. RB - Martin Carruthers, his username may suggest a role up front but given his versatility across the board...

    Ron Martin - Big ideas and small pockets.

    The last few days has been a massive shock. I dont think in my heart of hearts that the club will go under but I have had to face the maybe slim reality of life without SUFC. I started to think about all the things Ron has told us and what has actually happened. When you start to think back...

    Clement Attlee

    I'm going away for the weekend but my nomination for British hero is up for the first round this afternoon so here's why you should vote for him: Clement Attlee served as Winston Churchill's deputy in the War Coalition before winning the 1945 election and leading the most...

    Back In Business

    The roar, when the whistle finally came, was loud enough to shake the stadium to its foundations. A late Rafael strike and six minutes of injury time almost proved too much for the Arsenal fans who were in anguish at the prospect of another late capitulation, clutching their heads in their...
  17. The Zone Christmas Raffle & Donations thread!

    This is it ............I know it is a bit early, but if you can't beat em,join em. The Owners have spent over £800 rebuilding the website these past few months ( we hope you appreciate it :) ) We are having a Mega Raffle this year at Xmas and the draw will take place on Boxing Day after the...

    Apprentice week 9

    Don't know how many were watching what with some football match going on in Russia, thought this was going to be a pretty naff task this week, but what a shock at the end. Teams were shaken up again, pitching Alex as SAS's choice of PM with Lee and Lucinda in Alpha against PM Raef (again...

    Positivity article

    Did anyone else read it and think it was just a lot of comments with no real substance? I was hoping for "We've sold x tickets" or something more than "The Government will hopefully give the green light later in the year". Must be slow season. I should really just wait for things to appear on...
  20. Eastwood & Kightly up front?......

    I have heard a disturbing but reliable rumour that Eastwood will be talking to a number of clubs this week, with Wolves being the favourites to sign him in a deal between £1m and £1.5m! I would be dissapointed with this on a number of counts but I suppose we have to be realistic int hat the lad...
