  1. I’m currently eyeing up the Brittians Chocolate and chilli vodka that my Mrs gave me for Xmas.
  2. So far I haven’t seen his name mentioned as our next manager, a left field appointment who has done a cracking job at Östersunds FK. I’ll probably get torn to shreds by the hounds on here for not posting much and being an Owkstalk voyeur. Quite frankly I don’t care as I’ve had a bottle of Chateauneuf du Pape this evening. UTO
  3. A Norwich support mate at work emailed this regarding Turner - He's never been blessed with pace but not much gets past him in the air so he definitely has his uses. He scores the odd goal but in the Premier league he was always at risk of being turned by pacey players with a bit of skill - you know, the type of player that the Premiership is full of. I can imagine opposing managers saying to the likes of Raheem Sterling and Eden Hazard, 'Keep the ball on the floor and run at Turner, you'll tie him in knots' and that, sadly, is what happened all too often at that level. In the Championship he started last season alongside Russell Martin and did relatively well as the Canaries started the campaign like a train. I remember Robin Sainty commenting that Turner would soon be unable to get off the ground to head the ball, due to the number of opposing strikers that he had in his pockets - including Daryl Murphy! Then though, it all started to go wrong for Norwich in the autumn of 2014 and a series of nervous performances saw him dropped when Neil Adams reign came to an end and Alex Neil's started. His last appearance in a Norwich City shirt was in the same game as we last saw Carlos Cuellar. The two were used as a pairing when injury struck and Steven Whittaker was infamously asked to play central midfield against Brentford in late January at Carrow Road. Russell Martin moved across to right back and it was carnage as Cuellar and Turner didn't speak to each other throughout the game and basically helped end each other's City careers. They were both terrible that day and Turner's distribution sticks in my mind as appalling from that game. Late on I remember him on the left, under no pressure, attempt to play a long ball forwards with his left (wrong) foot and just shank it out of the ground and onto Carrow Road. Alex Neil turned away in frustration and I swore that Turner should never play for us again. A couple of weeks later, with Seb Bassong back in the fold, Turner was loaned to Fulham and by all accounts he did okay, scoring a goal in the Cottager's 4-3 win over Middlesbrough to make sure 'Boro ended up in the play-offs.

  4. I live and work in York and the rumour going around the York fans is that Nigel could be approached.
  5. He's a div 3 player at best. I watched him many a time when he was on York's books and was awesome in the Conference. He has pace but not as much as he did have before his leg break a few seasons back. He's not that strong either and I don't fancy another a arm waver in the blue and white when the right ball it not played.
  6. York away would be good as it is on my doorstep. It won't be at the new ground though as planning permission was only granted last month, with it hopefully being completed in 3 years. Unfortunately though, the "tourist" businesses want the planning process referred to Eric (The Pork Pie) Pickles because they believe the new stadium will take trade away from the city centre and hate any form of progress in the City. So it'll be Bootham Crescent if we do draw them

  8. My was 1988/89 season. Coming from York I was taken to my first (proper) football game for my best mates birthday, who was a Wednesday support. I'd watched York a number of times with my dad but had never been to a big stadium. We were 12 at the time and we lost to Tottenham 4-2, with i think old jug ears (Lineker) scoring a couple for Spurs. I fell in love with the atmosphere and deafening noise from the old standing Kop and I have been suffering (apart the promotion season) ever since!
  9. GK - Grant LB - Jones RB - Ostembor DC - Beevers DC - Purse © LM - Teale* RM - Sedgewick* CM - Coke CM - Miller CF - Tudgay CF - Mellor Subs O'Donnell Spurr Potter Johnson Heffernan Buxton O'Connor * Potential to switch wings during the game. My main concern is cover at CB. I'm not convinced by Hinds in that position. Ball watches to often , easily turned and lacks that turn of pace he had before his ankle injury.

  11. I believe he signed a one year extension at the end of this season
  12. I'm buzzing too, my only concern is how long it will take the new team to gel?
  13. If this does happen we will certainly regret it and will confirm that AI will be playing the long ball next season. I would of preferred to have kept Clarke, if Parkin is the only realistic replacement within our budget. I live in York and watched him play a lot when he was on York City's books after being released on a free from Barnsley. He could never hold down a regular 1st team place (York were poo at the time) and whenever he had a spell out injured, he appeared to put a stone in weight on whenever he returned. He is not the quickest, he first touch is not the greatest, his awareness is often poor and I have seen people on J Kyle with more intelligence and his game play relies heavily on his presence and strength.
  14. BBC radio pig stated on Monday that C9S would submit a new bid for the club within 48 hours. Have they followed through on their word with another derisory offer or have they fooled us again with more of their corporate claptrap?
  15. An email I received about a Grimsby Town fan after their relegation to the Conference. It brought I PMSL at this and reflects on how I have felt over the years. Now I'm as optimistic as anyone when it comes to this tw*t of a football club, but after this afternoon's latest capitulation it's time to wake up and smell the coffee - we're f*cked. Down. Goners. Non-league. To be honest I didn't know how it would affect me, it's not like it hasn't been coming, but tonight I just feel absolutely deflated. Absolutely f*cking devastated. I can't get away from these emotions, I just want the whole world to just f*ck off and leave me alone. To help me come to terms with this whole mess, I've decided to compile a list of everyone and everything I want to f*ck off most of all. For starters, work can f*ck off. If they think I'm going to be there on Monday morning they've got another thing coming. No way am I going in to spend time dealing with c*nts that I can barely stand being with when I'm in a good mood, let alone this crushing feeling of anger, frustration and outright metaphorical-kicked-in-the-b*llocks-ness. Plastic Premier League fans can f*ck off. I just spoke to my Manchester United supporting neighbour (who incidentally, has been to Old Trafford before - twice) about Town's predicament. You know what he said? "I know how you feel; it's like when we failed to win a trophy in '95". NO IT F*CKING WELL IS NOT! He no longer has a face. The girlfriend can definitely f*ck off. Her best attempt at consolation - "I don't know why you're bothered; you knew they were sh*t anyway". Yes love, but they're MY sh*t team. They've been MINE for pretty much as long as I've been able to wipe my own arse, and they'll be MINE for as long as I'm alive (or at least, until I'm no longer able to wipe my own arse). Truth is, watching my team win does things for me that no woman can. If push comes to shove and I'm horny, I can always have a w*nk. Barrow can f*ck off. I've been all over the country and beyond to watch my team, but frankly I just don't have the stomach to visit any town which makes Sflaphorpe look like f*cking St. Tropez. Dad, you can f*ck off. This is your fault. Your idea. You introduced me to this shower of sh*t. "Come with me to Blundell Park", you said, "Come and support the boys". What could I do? I was f*cking four, what choice did I have? Why not get me hooked on Heroin whilst you were at it? I could have gone with mum shopping for bras and knickers at British Home Stores, but no, you knew best. Granted, I'd have probably grown up a homosexual but surely even being simultaneously buggered two guys named Seth and Quentin couldn't hurt like this. Seeing as we're on the subject of homosexuality, Gok Wan can f*ck off. No particular reason, I just plain don't like the annoying, goggle-eyed c*nt. The F.A. can f*ck off. Not for supplying us, week-in, week- out, with inept referee after inept referee, but for imposing sensible financial rules on all clubs in League Two. How many clubs in this division have been into administration this season? Not one. How many points deducted? Not one. How the f*ck else are we supposed to avoid relegation - footballing merit? We didn't have to last season, so why spoil the fun now? The World Cup can f*ck off - I don't care anymore. My local pizza shop can f*ck off. I ordered a 12" Pepperoni over an hour ago, and where the f*ck is it? Are they trying to f*cking fly it to me or something? Sky Sports can f*ck off. Nothing personal, but there'll be little need for me next season with no Town to be found anywhere. Ooh, Bolton versus Wolves, LIVE. I think I'll pass... The radio can f*ck off. On my way home from the match, whilst driving down the M180, I caught three completely separate stations playing 'Down' by Jay Sean at the exact same f*cking time. The song's the best part of a year old, how the f*ck does that happen by coincidence!? My nan's old lucky Buddha that used to sit in her front room can f*ck off. When I was a kid I held it in my hands and wished for Town to be in the Premier League. I meant the proper one you fat c*nt, not the one occupied by Histon, Eastbourne and for f*ck's sake, Ebbsfleet, wherever that is. Tonight can f*ck off. I've had enough of trying to cope with my emotions; the time has come for oblivion. I haven't kept any booze in the house since an occasion known only as 'That Night' by myself and the missus, but suffice to say that the toilet duck and luminous blue mouthwash are looking like stronger propositions by the minute. Most of all though, the last 10 years can f*ck off. In that time I've watched my team fall from the top of the Championship into non-league nothingness. We've gone from one great big f*ck up to the next without even coming up for air, and today is just the big, f*ck off cherry on top. One thing I'm sure of though is that we WILL be back. When it comes down to it, a football club is basically just a set of supporters, and frankly what I've learned in the last few years is that this one has some of the best. We've had to put up with some sh*t, haven't we boys, but in spite of all of that the future is still bright - it's f*cking black and white. Grimsby 'til I die...
