  1. Really… REALLY. As you say, each to their own.
  2. I wouldn’t watch England if they were playing on my front lawn. ( except if they were playing Wednesday)
  3. There has GOT to be some serious meltdown rants on the Rotherham forums.
  4. There was an earthquake in Rotherham last week… it did £75,000 worth of improvements.
  5. It’s alright…. Blue and white stripes, that’s the main thing.
  6. Watched his interview after he signed. He seems very driven and focused…. and if he’s 36 then I want some of whatever he’s rubbing in. I showed my wife a clip of him being interviewed and asked her “ how old do you think this guy is ?” …. “22” she said ! ( mind you she’s so used to looking at my decrepit 66 year old body that I’m sure that any professional footballer would look like a kid to her , even a goalie)
  7. Only missed five games in forty years, fell off the top of a seven story tower block and only scratched his elbow, signs for Wednesday and is crocked after two games and out until February.
  8. I was at Millwall the day we went 2-0 up and looked fantastic…. then Roland did his ligaments right in front of me, I could hear him screaming. Went on the lose 4-2….. Teddy Sherringham and all that…. crap day out.
  9. Christ, I’d forgotten about him. A friend of mine went to see Sparks a few days ago, said that they were brilliant.
  10. We’ll replace him with a 36 year old .
  11. Is that what he was doing on the physios couch ? No wonder he was always sore.
  12. Carlton’s wife has infiltrated his social media.
  13. Showing my age here but Paul Cooper who played for Ipswich in the late 70,s had an unrivalled reputation for saving penalties and he was five feet ten. Also, I played with a keeper who was nineteen stone and he was diabolical, especially on a Sunday morning after a heavy night. On many occasions he was late for kick off .
  14. 47 games for Plymouth…. If he signs for us he’d be crocked after six games, come back for the Christmas fixtures , aggravate his injury and be sidelined for the rest of the season. ( sorry about the negativity but I’m still grumpy, I’ll be full of the joys of spring after our first signing)
  15. Excellent post. I agree that the refereeing has been sub standard, I’m convinced that some of the officials have never played football in their lives and are just doing it to get out of the house for the weekend. The other modern day affectation that you didn’t mention was the hilarious sight of defenders with limited ball skills trying to play it out from the back with often calamitous results. Premier league defenders often come to grief with this pompous strategy so god only knows why third tier managers would instruct their defenders to give it a go.
  16. I’m just plodding through the day without the extra zing that a win would have brought. I keep getting flashbacks of Gregory’s goal and their equaliser. I have to say though at no point did I think that we would win the tie, either of them, not even when we scored . I absolutely expected them to nick the winner.
  17. I’m looking forward to signing some players that I’ve barely heard of who turn out to be real match winners.
  18. Definitely…I hope that we can bring in some young players with pace and tenacity.
