  1. Showed plenty of potential but was sold to soon without being given the opportunity to develope into a top class striker with us. Big mistake by Chris Turner (?), given the chance I'm sure he would have gone on to fill your username.
  2. This is Owlstalk. You'll get used to it.
  3. Yea it's still the "Cottage" but I don't remember it ever changing its name, could be wrong though. Finished up in there on the very first date with the missus. Never been in the place since. (true story)
  4. Where abouts was that? Lived in Crookes/Walkley area all my life but can't recall "The Walkley Tavern" Maybe "The Walkley Cottage"?
  5. Just had a txt from my daughter telling me she had backed the winner. "How the bloody hell did you pick that out" says me. Well just look at it's name she says. Feck me !!! POTTERS CORNER !!!!!!!
  6. Didn't K8 logo appear on the shirts instead of 'Chansiri' for the pre-season friendly against Espanyol? Thought at the time that we had got a "proper" shirt sponsor for this season.
  7. Scrap this season altogether. Start a new season next August (or whenever possible) but:- Teams to start the new season with the points they have at the moment. This would preserve some fairness for the teams doing well at the moment, allowing them to start the new season with the same advantage that they hold at present. Likewise teams not doing so well (like us at the moment) would still have it all to do. Not ideal I know, but at least it would avoid an extension of this season, to who knows when, causing further ongoing disruption to next seasons league, European and World cup competitions.
  8. I'm pretty sure that these are the original shareholder match day passes. IIRC these passes admitted the shareholder plus one juvenile, I seem to remember seeing a row of kids behind the South Stand hoping to be taken in by one of the 'wealthy' When I was a lad (long time ago) the father of one of my mates was friendly with an original shareholder and if, for any reason, he wasn't going to the game he used to lend him the token. So off we would go with the token securely chained to my mates belt and him threatened with the good hiding of his life if he lost it.
  9. Hated that Terry Henfleet. Can't remember him having one decent game all the time he played for us.
  10. Possibly due to a serious ankle injury picked up last September, followed by another serious injury to the same ankle on Boxing day for which he required surgery.
  11. Lincoln City 27th December 1959. Won 1 - 0 (Roy Shiner IIRC) Remember being disappointed because we had beaten them 7 - 0 the previous day (boxing day) and I fully expected a similar score again.
  12. Only thing about Chris Waddle that has ever disappointed me is That bloody haircut !!!!!!!!
  13. Just getting used to being able to go out on a Saturday night with a smile on my face. Then the bloody government shut the pubs.
  14. Don't drink it all at once. Enjoy !! and keep safe, pal.
  15. Hi Lanzarote, I presume your business is under lockdown like many others. I would be delighted to help support you as a member of the OT family. I am prepared to buy a couple of crates of San Miguel on a take out basis (if this is allowed, as it is in the UK). Just let me know a price. Er...... you do provide a free home delivery service don't you?
  16. Yea, so many great old pubs lost over the years. I wonder just how many of our remaining pubs will not re-open after the present COVD19 lockdowns are relaxed.
  17. Oh Bugger !! Look what happened after he gave them a day off for Christmas.
  18. They were at it again yesterday morning. I think one of 'em had just grabbed the last pack of toilet rolls.
  19. Please don't let anyone post a picture of Chris Waddle's new hair cut.
  20. Home and awy masks would be OK, as long as they don't start with bloody Half 'n Half masks.
  21. Yea, always said we would be better off playing our football in the summer. Just think, watching your team on a summer afternoon or evening, whilst dressed in T-shirt and shorts instead of all togged up in balaclavas and scarves. Bring it on.🦉
  22. So season to be extended indefinitely but no indication as to whether players contracts ending in June will be automatically extended. A reyt can 'o worms innit. Just scrap this season (sorry Liverpool and pigs) and start anew as and when the virus is under control.
