Where’s Leigh exactly? Back at club tonight and there was a Leigh Harrier who has moved down south and was checking out the club. I said I had a few friends in running clubs up there. Nice to hear a northern accent again :)
It's a fleapit of a place on the way into Wigan.

Re: The future is hidden from all men and great events hang on small chances: Exeter (H) Sat 1/5/21 @ 3pm

Methinks Bruce is referring to which current Champ sides might be in L1 next term, no? As I’ve said before, I’m in no hurry to return to that fiscal suicide pact of a division - but if in a year’s time we are in the brink of promotion to it, I wouldn’t want us to lose... although I suspect we may n...

Re: What are you watching tonight?

Pretty much since the off I've been convinced that there'll be a twist involving Chloe Bishop - she's up to no good. Nobody's that thorough and that flawless in their work - operating to the letter of the law..... to the letter ;)

Re: Top 5 of all time...

1. Footy. Watching and playing 2. Fell running. Doing 3. Athletics. Watching 4 Boxing. Definitely watching 5. Not sure whether to opt for tennis, rugby or ice hockey, all of which were a decent watch but a long way behind the rest of my list. Never quite understood why hitting someone is considered...

The only BWFC team to be promoted without a single fan in attendance. What about that dude behind the goal at Cheltenham? (Asking for a pedant ;) ) I know I shouldn't have, but I've been checking out who's likely to be coming down out of The Championship, and who's likely to remain in League one. P...

Which one of is it that got a bet on at splendid odds? Was it you, Nico? That'll be me (unless someone else has, too). 20/1 when we were 19th in the league back in Jan. 4200 if/when we go up. Was very tempted to take the 3k cash out before kickoff. Superb. Yeah, that was the one. Will be delighted ...

Re: Be Wise and Ern it: Morecambe (A) Sat 24/4/21 @ 3pm

Interesting all the talk of a toss-up between Baptiste and Tommy Fleetwood for motm, because I have Jackson down as a shoe-in for it. Came in for John and played like John at his best. Plus, given the amount of fumbling, fecking about and falling over anything and everything in and around the box he...

Things I thought I'd never hear myself say - excellent use and timing of substitutes by Evatt this afternoon.

Santos has to score there really. Under pressure but inches above his man.
Thought he'd finally done it, to be fair, but yeah - has to at least hit the target.

Re: Be Wise and Ern it: Morecambe (A) Sat 24/4/21 @ 3pm

We’ve been fannying around with the ball just outside the box all game. Nobody seemed to want to shoot. Look what happens when we do! Good lad Ben! Found myself thinking 'fair enough' when Baptiste had a crack from outside the box earlier for that very reason. Been screaming for someone to take the...

Re: Be Wise and Ern it: Morecambe (A) Sat 24/4/21 @ 3pm

And I was just going to call him a c*nt for hitting his free-kick into the centre of the wall :D

He's looked like he's wanted a goal all half. Had a cracking effort saved earlier.

Great stuff. 1-0 at H-T.

Couldn't be better

My lack of optimism has dissipated and I've decided we're going to shit em. The pressure and need to perform will bring the best out in them. COYW!!! Likewise. We'll go at them from the off and they won't know what's fecking hit them. All those half chances will go the right side of the post and ou...
