    Off to see Tes today

    Not gonna be able to make it to Chesterfield today but instead will get in a more local trip as Tes Bramble has turned up at Hadleigh United (in Suffolk) - at home in the FA Vase today - so only a mile to walk to a match for a change. He's played a few already and scoring shed loads fresh out of...
  5. Ref Watch ...... Wycombe (short ref alert!)

    Tomorrow night the officials are largely as per the original appointments which means we have Andy Woolmer from Northampton. He is a very short referee with even shorter hair and, as shorter officials sometimes do, he has the capacity to be slightly officious. Okay, not slightly but very...

    The ficticious village of Royston Vasey in that fantastic series 'The League of Gentlemen' is also the real name of comic stand up Roy 'Chubby' Brown Begs the question: Have the real names of any other people in the limelight been used in any way?
  7. Ref Watch ..... Norwich

    Our last three home games have produced no less than 24 yellow cards. Who is the man charged with keeping this impressive run going? Well, tomorrow night's match against Norwich will be refereed by the experienced official, Phil Crossley, from Bromley in Kent. This would be his eighth season...
  8. Ref Watch ... Oldham (H)

    Saturday's match against Oldham will be refereed by the experienced official, Phil Crossley, from Kent. This would be his seventh season as a League referee but as he missed all of last season through injury, I guess it's really his sixth. The two previous seasons were both interrupted by...

  11. American English or English English

    So what with Seth saying FALL when it's really AUTUMN and probably saying VAYSE when the rest of the world knows it's VARSE (vase), tow-mato/tomarto.....pants/trousers....which is better? There's only one way to find out.... .... Szone comedy poll! PS: Let's not turn this into an Anti-US...
