  1. Can I just say a big up to the CLDC Forestry Gang of '79 I'd spent months trying to lure those fellas into a works outing and this game ^ was eventually it Chosen in part because one of 'em ('Fat John') was a Millwall fan who'd moved up north from Lewisham - only he bottled out at the last minute Not so the others - Pete, Nat & Kiwi Bryan - we had a blinding night A good win followed by a session in The Travellers at Oxspring before a failed search for a late fish supper *actually screeched to a halt outside a shop in Huddersfield that still had their lights on bloke let us in but guessed the fryers would be cold - to prove it, he took a chip out, bit it in half, shook his head and then spat it back in
  2. Couple of tidy strikes there 4th goal reminds me of Monty Python's Gynaecologists v Long John Silver Impersonators sketch
  3. 8th March SV Sandhausen 2-2 St Pauli (att: 9,872) St Pauli were looking for their third straight win and things were looking good when they went ahead midway through the 1st half But they conceded an equaliser from the spot on the stroke of half time - seems like Matt Penney was the culprit as he was also booked Whether it was the foul, the booking or else injuring himself in the challenge? He didn't appear for the second half When Sandhausen took the lead after 63mins it had been on the cards, but then St Pauli found an equaliser with about 15mins remaining and hung on to claim a valuable away point
  4. If Aue (p. 5) is the smallest city to have a side in the 2nd tier of German football then Sandhausen must be the smallest town The population is listed at around 15k but the town itself is situated just a few short miles south of Heidelberg, a city roughly ten times bigger In fact Heidelberg, being a world-famous university city, favours Rugby Union so perhaps those who prefer to watch football happily travel down to Sandhausen to get their fix ... No.11 SV Sandhausen ... which might explain why their home stadium has a capacity capable of accommodating the whole town Or maybe not, that part of SW Germany is fairly densely populated as it is and as their closest rivals appear to be Karlsruher (p.27) - and that's about 30 mile away - then perhaps they're at the heart of a thriving catchment area anyway Still a small town club though, who had to wait until 2012 to gain promotion to 2.Bundesliga for the first time in their history They've held their own at that level since then but are struggling a bit this season - currently 14th That's 3pts above the relegation playoff place and 1pt behind today's visitors: St Pauli
  5. I'll keep this thread going for those of us who might welcome a break from all the turmoil 7th March Plymouth 3-0 Macclesfield (att: 12,310) Home side maintain their push for automatic promotion while the visitors' lousy run of form continues Connor Kirby started as usual, got booked early on and was then subbed off on 77mins with his side trailing 2-0 Plymouth added a third almost immediately afterwards and that's how it finished Unless things improve, Macc's season is going to depend on how Stevenage get on and as luck would have it (!) they lost again as well
  6. Excellent result against a side with one eye on the playoffs Kind of makes up for losing 1-0 at home to the dingles in midweek - a match our OS has so far failed to mention
  7. News from Middlewood Road, U18s v Burnley ....
  8. Pelupessy v Man C being another example of this It's alright Upson (or whoever) counting his touches, but it would be more telling to see how much ground he'd covered over 90mins
  9. 8.32 Owls substitution OFF: Jordan O'Brien ON: Jack Stobbs
  10. I see Millwall are 3-0 up at Forest after 34 mins What a weird league the Championship is
  11. 8.09 WEDNESDAY LEAD! Fraser Preston doubles the advantage for the Owls with another very good finish.
  12. The Stir's half time summary .... It was not the most sparkling of performance from either side but a pair of excellent finishes sees the game all square and finely in the balance heading into the second half. Wednesday started really well, passing the ball with patience and composure to push up the pitch without creating much of a threat. United showed just that when Leo Gaxha sprung clear and finished superbly with the visitors' first real attack. The Owls struggled after falling behind, losing that quality on the ball as the game became more urgent. Play became sloppy and both sides struggled to create. But then came another moment of magic on the stroke of half time when Fraser Preston was put in clear and finished superbly.
