  2. News of the week

    So, where do I begin? We are to ground share with the Daggers and that titbit comes from a reliable source or at least a bloke on the sauce. Barry Corr wants to mark his hundredth Blues game with a goal and that's breaking news? Probably more newsy if he said he didn't want to score a goal...

  4. Question Are Crewe Northerners?

    A quick browse on the Crewe forum suggests they regard themselves as northerners. Most of the assorted Smoggies, Mackems and Geordies I endure on a daily basis would regard the idea of Cheshire being in the north as incomprehensible. They just about accept Yorkshire and Lancashire as being...

    Latest Rumours Pre Match Entertainment

    I’ve heard that Peterborough’s ‘firm’ is heading down for the weekends game. I wouldn’t worry about it though.. He's called Derek and he's not hard, just a bit fat with a gammy leg. In any case, I can conceal a whole bevy of assorted ‘tools’ in my hair in case things get a bit tasty.

    New ideas for TV shows

    Our five-a-side game at Mile End was one player short tonight so someone suggested having a reality TV show to find an extra player. Part of me found this so funny it needed sharing, part of it is undoubtedly self-indulgent but a big part of me is hopeful of getting more ideas from the good...
