  1. I wonder if any of this years intake will try and take their own life like many previous "contestants" - after being publicly humiliated,  and realising the illusion of the perfect life is just that and that they have  been used as gleening , preening entertainment  puppets. 


    It's vacuous bullshít,  no better than a victorian freakshow.

  2. Don't really have a second team as such.

    Certainly none of the big uns. 

    Me hate for most em ingrained. 


    Always looked for the other local sides in the Green Un as a kid.   Read all  their reports too. 

    Didn't realise at that time that most em didn't like us. But I was always interested what they were doing. 


    Sometimes even now the odd name will suddenly pop in me head from back in them days of poring over the Green Un reports.  Owen Archdeacon...  Brendan Ormsby.... Clive Mendonca ...Jamie Hewitt...Rufus Brevitt. Proper names them. 


    I always have a look for Cowdenbeath as they were once on Saint and Greavsie.

    There was some old bloke up there did everything.

    Marked the pitch, painted the stands. Worked on the turnstile.  He even made all the pies for half time. Ran off and turned the ovens on once he'd finished flogging programmes. So I've always kept an eye out for them. 



    Them and Stranraer. Me mate supported them. He was from there. 


    So them two and Keith FC.

    Because, well, a team called Keith. It piques yer interest really. Wondering If they were named after an actual bloke. 

    Also, due to a smudge in me Rothmans year book I inadvertently thought their nickname was 'The Morons' for about 3 years, till I realised they were actually  The Maroons.


    Had a soft spot for Barcelona when Lineker went there. I loved Gary Lineker when I was a kid. But went off em when everyone started w'nking about em all along. The slavering makes me badly.


    That and mebbe I'm just accustomed to failure and can't resonate wi success.


    Anyway, I think the thing with me is, they can't really  be an English proffesional club. 

    Unless one is playing one if the big teams in the cup, then obviously I'll support em.


    I like to get along and watch Hallam and Club when I get a minute. You can't beat a game, a pie, a proper brew and being able to stand where you want for under a tenner can you really?

    Fixture congestion. Wtf is that.

    10 games in 31 days. 

    Thank goodness we don't have a history of injuries to important players. 







    That could be a reight spanner in the works

    Me too, it’s become part of my Sunday morning ritual now and I look forward to it. I always like to do myself a fry up or a bacon butty and sit and watch the review on a Sunday morning with a brew. Bonus this week is that we got two videos to watch! 😅


    Black pudding, sausage, bacon, fried bread, yolky eggs. Right hungry now.
