    Lucky dip!

    To celebrate (commiserate?) my arrival at the big 70, the wife and I decided to return to see the family towards the end of the year. Originally, I found a cheap flight out of Lourdes for the 15th November and was warming to the idea of seeing our quick return game against the Bantams. That...
  2. Donny summary ;

    The complete performance’ is how Darren Ferguson described this win, and it’s hard to disagree.Rovers were the better side in the first half; more fluid and open than their hosts, and went in at the break with a deserved lead. Nathan Tyson’s deftly weighted pass, slotted into the roof of the net...

    The Clock Ticks On

    From Mark Steyn: The world divides into those who sincerely believe in that "Coexist" sticker and those who think it's a delusional evasion. After all, if it weren't for that big Muslim crescent "C" at the front, you wouldn't need a bumper sticker at all: That peace-symbol "O"? It's Muslims...

    Indonesian Drug Executions

    I may be slightly controversial here but I'm in the let's get it over and done with camp. Before the knee jerks consider these points.

    Manager statue

    Arriving at Tranmere on Saturday, I saw a statue of ex manage Johnny King and wondered who would we choose as justifying such a tribute. Tilson, Fry, Webb, Smith, Taylor, Sturrock ....................................
  7. Best performance in blues shirt

    Appreciate that this is probably the wrong time to do this, what with a number of new signings arriving at the club, but wondered on peoples thoughts of our current squads best individual games for the club. I've obviously left out the new arrivals and a few others who have barely featured...

    Phil Brown and Southend on Barclays Premier League World

    At the end of 'Barclays Premier League World' on Sky, there's a 5 minute piece on Phil Brown & Southend/Hull. He mentions "a promise of the new stadium and investment" was all in place for him before arriving, and, "firm backing from RM". Wonder if he still genuinely believes that? Anyway...

  11. Trial Game

    A wee birdie has told me that the game will be open house for the fans and that only stipulation will be that he would appreciate the fans arriving between 2.45 and kick off time 3.00. With the first team squad having a double session and 33 trialists its going to be hectic,another stipulation...

    Terra ferma

    I don't know whether I'm alone here but on reflection this morning I do think that there is a need, not for optimism or pesimism, but for a good dose of realism. First of all, congratulations to the Luggy and the squad, for the preparation of our play-off campaign. In a matter of weeks we...

    New W Block Drummer Required

    Due to the current drummer getting a bit old and clearly lacking rythym, a vacancy has arisen for a new RH drummer. You must be capable of playing the bass drum with rythym and not just banging ten barrells of **** out of it. Someone preferably with pro experience would be ideal. The role...

    Now I Know What the Helmets For.

    Since joining my new company things have moved along in the recovery world for me. My gaffer is one of these chaps who wont ask you to do something he wouldn't or couldn't do himself which is in sharp contrast to the last lot. He loaths paperwork and if the true is told, sitting in his office...
