  1. As a very young lad who started going with my dad in the early 50s I can remember the great days when Dooley was at it and Quixall was the dogs . The sale of Quixall was a real downer at that time and when Billy Griffin came along also with his blond hair and eye for goal it was as if we had a redeemer , loved the feller . Couple of seasons ago Billy was introduced to the crowd at half time to do the draw . Only one person cheered and clapped him in the South Stand ---me . Got a few funny looks and had a lot of explaining to do with those around me to just how good he was .
  2. Can you please let me know what is the difference between this tackle and the one that saw Shaw sent off. Both defenders got the ball first, were off the ground (ergo out of control) one was deemed a booking, the other went unpunished. The main difference for me was that Harris got up and tried to get the ball back, the other laid on the ground and only decided to grab his leg and ***** when card had been shown.
  3. This could square the circle for us, a sort of redemption day. It all started at half time at Stoke on boxing day and we have been in strife ever since. Of course we could be heading for groundhog day.
  4. Saturday will be a vastly different game to last night . It will be all about stopping crosses into our box . Lots of physicality in both areas and wide players who can cross from most angles . I will be shocked if Millwall play through the thirds as Bournmouth did last night .
  5. Its being so cheerful that keeps yer going. By the way hows that Job bloke you were comforting ?
  6. Not wanting to dowse your fire Gramps but I`ve been around for a long time and have learnt that although the club means everything to a lot of supporters its a small part of life really . I had my first CV jab yesterday , and the relief I felt was unbelievable . Actually sat in the car and wept with the strain of it all . God knows how I would have felt if it had been cancelled. I have lived through the sale of Quixall , 1966 Cup Final defeat , all were ,to a young lad , devastating at the time but have learnt what really matters .
  7. Please don't ask me to make any decisions, I've had the first CV jab today and the feeling of relief was a heady mixture. But I've just been knocked sideways by seeing Lady Gaga singing the US anthem at Bidens inauguration. I thought the lunnie toons had slunk off to Florida in a huff but now I'm not so sure.
  8. Soon have them odds down , Just bought a scratch card with my morning paper and won £20. Will lump that on him and he will be odds on by lunch time.
  9. Just said to ar lass arv just farnd a good way er decoratin ar small bedroom. Told me to ballacks!!
  10. There I was thinking they don`t put bay windows on sh###houses.
  11. If Sibley plays for them we will have top weight on to get a point . Saw him play against Brum on TV was just like watching Brookes for the pigs.
  12. You will get a long way on here with that, you have rounded off the thread nicely. Bit like 2020!
  13. Read that as Glasschopper, but thats just me like .
  14. Read what he did at Palace, that will tell you a lot about him.
  15. So Dave --- It appears you are not a DC fan ? You have been up all night ,Iv`e been up since half 3 . Best if we both take a deep breath and let it wash over us a bit . At least I knew we were at home today
  16. Interesting description of someone who could be in the frame? Martin OhNeil.
  17. Got woken up at 0300, by a scrabbling sound on the roof and Bobby the dog going barmy downstairs . Went outside and saw the cause ---- shouted out " don`t who yer are get them blasted reindeer off mi roof " The old 2@ got a right strop on !! When "I told him to " come darn here an say that " he finally beggered off. Fancy at that time of night trying to train reindeer for steeplechasing .
  18. Here's a view of me fishing without wasting energy, ladder peg on Gunthorpe Island. Thought the left rod could do with a little bit more of a bend in the tip. Instead of getting off my seat it looks like I'm turning the handle with my foot. Also a foot shot for Simon - seasons greetings to all.
  19. Correct ,4-0 but it was on the 27th (assume boxing day was on a sunday). We played the arse next day away and lost 5-2 and Hickton scored again. Interesting was the crowd 33101@ home only 21035 away
  20. Don`t get too far in front of yourself Snoots Finding out what went off at half time last boxing day at Stoke is the root cause surely, not seen owt anywhere but thats when we fell off a cliff . Promotion form pre game -- relegation form thereafter . We deserve to be told .
  21. Now that's what I call avant guard planning. Just the sort of thing you want at S6.
  22. That’s too much like common sense which appears not common in our hierarchy.
  23. Very good by the club , but it made me laugh that Westwood had the crown jewels covered in case he rang the doorbell of a supporter who might be p****d off by his antics.
  24. The way we are playing you will be over qualified to be a supporter as your normal self . Can you find time to give Tom Lees some one to one coaching on ball control and finding a player in the same colour shirt when he passes would be nice . You can convince him he would not have got studs in his thigh if he could actually kick the bag of wind with his left foot. Oh and he was at fault on the first goal as well - turned his back on the shot aint any sort of defending in my book . You can also ask him why when we are being pressed by the opposition they dont press him ? it
