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: Tonight's Football

Very well done to my 2nd team, Chorley, on coming back from 2-0 down to put Wiggin art ert th'eff aaay cup 3-2. And from what I saw of it - thoroughly deserved. Amazing, one point all bloody season (although, to be fair, not much of a season!) in the 6th tier and they stuffed Wigan at their place, ...

I agree with Trump - Let's stop the count. As it stands that means he'll lose by 253 to 214 :)

Re: Pragmatism vs Perseverance

The best footy I've seen from us in my lifetime was that 96/97 season. Exciting, free scoring, fast flowing football with no lack of steel in there. Seeing Jamie Pollock managing to play on the wing made me realise that nobody has a decent excuse for not taking up some form of physical exercise :)

Re: Growing a pair at the UniBol. Man(up)sfield at home. Tuesday 3rd Nov 7pm.

I'm absolutely baffled by Evatt's post match comment that Mansfield have a budget twice as much as ours - how can that possibly be ? They are either breaking the salary cap substantially or we are penny pinching and are nowhere the salary cap limit. Or Evatt's talking absolute bollocks. I know wher...

Re: Tobias Phoenix

I seem to recall at the time of his appointment that he has no previous experience of any similar director of football position, apart from a spell at Macclesfield and that he was actually a football agent prior to this, but I could be wrong. I have absolutely no idea why & on what basis FV employe...

Well, that was shit! Not the complete humiliation they deserved thanks to Crawford and Sarcevic in the end.
And, I have to say, their keeper, who's so slow to react to Sarcevic's appalling first touch that I thought we'd swapped him for ours.

I dunno, Bruce, from "fully 30 yards" it's quite hard to hit a free-kick that's still rising as it enters the stand :mrgreen:

Was rather hoping that Crawford might've nipped his radar into the menders, but clearly not.

It's hard to disagree with 'if it affects you, come off it'
Whereas hanging your young goalie out to dry in public sees him 'man-up' and metamorphosise into a budding Lev Yashin, of course.

Wey heeeeeeey - It's Twitter's fault that we're shit now. Whatever next? The more Evatt looks to deflect blame onto anything and anyone, the more he draws attention to the fact that he hasn't a fecking clue as to what he's doing, and that he's no idea how to get us out of it.
