  1. Ref Watch ........ Morecambe H

    Not much to say this week as we have a Roots Hall debutant in his first season. The man in charge of our attempt at a first ever victory over Morecambe is Charles Breakspear from Walton-on-Thames.

  3. Red Card Roy

    Finally got round to reading the above while on holiday in Spain, and a fascinating read it was too. Apologies if this book has been covered before, but the following caught my eye ; McDonough thought that that Dave Smith was ‘a nervous odd bod’ who he described as ‘Mister Magoo’ (he was sacked...

    Football quotations

    What's your favourite?

  8. Important Club Statement: Juveniles break into Roots Hall

  9. Shrimp and two veg

    So how will we get on ?

    Real difficult team to predict and with a new manager too, looks like we are about 7-1 to win the title. A few players in the squad with the talent yes, but can they all gel together and make it work? Get a few lucky goals and I can see a strong belief will build quickly. I think we are a dark...

    Decision reviews Cricket V football

    I am watching the NZ 1st innings at Headingly and England have just called the 2nd successful review of a LBW; a huge game changer that has given two wickets and two important, reviewed correct decisions. Interestingly NZ made their appeals and didn't call them right. What is wanted is the...

    Biggest load of drivel I've ever heard

    Not sure how they got my details, but some loons have sent me an email suggesting I sign a petition to protest about there being no women (other than HM The Queen) on British bank notes.
