Re: SAVE BURY

Gigg Lane was donated to Bury Football Club in 1895 by the Earl Of Derby. There are covenants on the land that state that the land can only be used for sporting purposes. I rent land from both the Earl of Wilton and Earl of Derby estates and have spoken to the land agents about Gigg Lane in the pas...

You're what? Where's Domingos? I'm afraid that this just won't do at all.

Re: Season 20-21

Small ground, be a sell out. Fat badger for a feed and several pints first 👍 Unfortunately Loch Fyne closed their Harrogate restaurant. There is an excellent Greek place (Mykonos) close to the Convention Centre - they do a splendid Mezze. I nominate Harrogate as being my new Fulham. Make a weekend ...

Re: SAVE BURY

Sadly, I cannot think of a single plot in our entire region more suited to conversion into housing than Gigg Lane; it ticks every single box. Dale knows this and that's his only interest.

Re: Summer 2020 transfers

Tom White on a season-long loan from Blackburn. 23 year old midfielder who apparently went to Barrow on loan for a couple of months last season. Well chuffed to be signing for the biggest club on Earth etc. He's more than well chuffed: he's "buzzing"! My mistake. I got caught up in the giddiness 😊

Re: SAVE BURY

Bury's phoenix set up has been accepted into the North West Counties Division One North. As such, they can possibly drive past the Bok on their way to Daisy Hill. :shock:

Re: Summer 2020 transfers

I agree whole heartedly with the point but brought Branagans career to an end? He was still giving us stirling service 7 years after the rule was introduced. Really? As I recall it buggered his legs up. His knee(s) was fecked in the end wasnt it? I'm not sure if that was as a result of the back pas...

Re: Summer 2020 transfers

I guess it could be a younger goalkeeper who's been brought up with the idea of playing out from the back. I think you're almost understating the importance of this. The old dogs / new tricks rule seems to plague goalkeepers. Let us not forget how the backpass rule and it's ultimate requirement tha...

Decent wag, there. Well played by Broady.

Re: Summer 2020 transfers

We still haven't plumbed sufficient depths as a club so as to have reached Dean Moxey's level. Remains the only ever Wanderer who I've been absolutely delighted to have seen go off injured.

Re: creeeeeeeekeeeeeet

Have they shown the tracking for Sibley's LBW? Looks high to me. Beautiful ball though. Not seen anything - I think the consensus was knee-roll + on front crease-line = half way up middle stump! See, I'd say 'top of off', if at all. Hopefully get to see some tracking later. Not that it alters anyth...

Yaya Toure's training with Orient. It's my birthday on Monday - maybe I can entice him up here with a slice of my birthday cake. We know how partial he is. :)

Obligatory YouTube clip (I can't seem to embed it): https://youtu.be/TFcW5npmdyo It might well only be me, but as soon as someone posts a YouTube piece which specifically highlights the merits of a player who we've either just signed or are reported to be interested in, I immediately think of Danie...
