Re: Sal-Destroying. Home. Friday 13th. 7:45. On the tele.

Crawford seems to have changed his boots during half time - hopefully these are his shooting boots Those of a certain age will recall how Billy Dane discovered the boots previously worn by the prolific striker, Dead-Shot Keane, and whenever young Dane wore them in Billy's Boots', imbued by the unex...

Defence looking more of a cohesive unit. Change of keeper?

It means they're waterproof. I'd imagine it'll be an expanded PTFE membrane, or summat very similar. :)
Why couldn't they just call them waterproof pumps then? :D
Oh trust me, they won't be getting referred to as being anything other than 'waterproof pumps' by yours truly :D

Re: The Masters

Absolutely loving seeing the approach shots stopping dead on the greens, like the players have just thrown a dart. I'm expecting good things from our lads this time out. Chiefly because these are the conditions they learned to play in; wet grass, rough is up (not that you can call it rough but you k...

Is that marketing speak for a pair of trainers?
I believe it is, yes. :D
I'd be intrigued to find out what exactly a plasma guard is/does if they come with an instruction manual :D

Re: Crellin vs Rachubka

I'm struggling to recall a keeper by the name of Mark Walton, btw?! Played three times for us in 94.

I vaguely remember us getting Gerry Peyton on loan from Everton but can't remember who he played against. :conf:

Re: The athletics/running thread

I’m so unfit at the moment, I’ll defo need a breather on Sunday. I’ll be reet going from 0 to 10k, won’t I? 😬 Having had to teeter down the steep hill by mine last night through wet leaves at roughly the same 'speed' I went up it, I'd say that trial shoes might be in order for Sunday if you have a ...

Re: Crellin vs Rachubka

Who'd taken Aiden Davidson or Kevin Poole right now? Was it 93/94 when Aidan Davison played for most of the season? Not that I've any inclination to do this, but my mate reckons that if you watch the video back, you'll see that Davison is at fault in some way for every goal he let in. Sounds a bit ...

Grim tales drifting through - Nicky Hunt is reported to have suffered an injury to his back and/or neck whilst playing for Darlington this evening, causing the game to be abandoned in the latter stages. Apparently he was being treated on the pitch for over an hour. Hope to feck he's OK. He must live...

Just about to re-start my abs workouts again. If I never post again it may be that I didn’t survive. Need to trim down this lockdown tummy somehow. :?

Re: Crellin vs Rachubka

It’s certainly between the two of them for the goalkeeper spot in my all time worst XI. For those golden oldie posters - who gets in the worst XI from the pre Rioch era? Mine (all pretty modern on the basis I only started watching in the early 90s) is: Crellin Grounds Butterfield CID Gordon Twatdic...

Re: Crellin vs Rachubka

Pre Rioch, theres a few contenders for the goalkeeper's shirt, but since he's similar to Crellin (decent shot stopper, hopeless in the air), I'll start with wee Simon. Farnworth Whitworth Sutton Lydiate Deakin Bell Cantello Train Storer Rudge Moores I'd be squeezing Paul Comstive into that midfield...
