Re: This weeks RIP's........

Got Prince P’s funeral on in the background. Not a royalist particularly but the old guy served his country well in war time and pretty much gave up massive chunks of his life to support the queen. Sad for her. She’s a good old stick even if some of the rest of her family leave a little to be desir...

Re: Time to batter the fish wives? Grimsby (A) - Sat 17th Apr 12:30 KO

I don't care how well Grimsby played & fought today and that they deserved the win, they are bottom of the league for a reason i.e. they are the worst team in the division, but they outplayed & outfought us and wanted it more than our players. A case of every dog having its day maybe? If we played ...

Re: Time to batter the fish wives? Grimsby (A) - Sat 17th Apr 12:30 KO

We lost a game after winning a lot; one battle not the war. Not world's end and still all to play for. Evatt needs to get the belief back in the lads, oh, and get some shooting practise in before Tuesday. This result will give those around us fresh heart. We can still do this COME ON YOU WHITES , ge...

Re: Time to batter the fish wives? Grimsby (A) - Sat 17th Apr 12:30 KO

Despite about what we care about winning, being entertained etc, etc, there isn't one true Bolton fan who doesn't want the wins, and never more than right now.. It's what we exist for football wise for me, for those of my era,70 years of supporting one team only through all the roller-coaster rides ...

Re: Time to batter the fish wives? Grimsby (A) - Sat 17th Apr 12:30 KO

Surest sign yet that Grimsby have given up the ghost and are preparing for life in the National League. You don't limit your resources if you think there's any chance of staying up. 3-0. Don't believe it Tony, They're professionals earning a living, including the manager, and Grimsby still need a t...

Sue we'll be looking to win and the beauty of it is both Cheltenham and Cambridge have tough aways at Crawley and Newport respectively.

As a follow on to a thread in The Trotter about the importance of winning: We all like to win, but how important is it in the grand scheme?

Re: Tonight's Football

Watched two women's international foot ball matches this last week, England v France and Canada.(friendlies) They lost both and looked pretty second rate, although they were without captain Steph Houghton and several key players.

Re: Time to batter the fish wives? Grimsby (A) - Sat 17th Apr 12:30 KO

Going off previous of late, a 1-0 win is most likely what we'll get. Anything else is bonus. To end our season not relegated would have been a pipe dream not too long back. Even the most rose-tinted optimists (like me) would hardly dare to hope for where we are now.. Team spirit, good management and...

Re: What are you watching tonight?

Still enjoying Line of Duty, tbf I eat that kind of stuff up. Does feel like the Hastings character has to get one catchphrase in per episode, which grates mildly. Think they've played Ted Hastings character down somewhat this series. He seems to spend a lot of time just space-gazing, nodding wisel...
