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

In 1893, we had consecutive games against Arsenal, Aston Villa, Accrington and Aardvark United. FACT. Was that last game at the long forgotten Aardvark Park? Yes indeed. Arthur Blinkinsop scored a hat-trick for us in a 5-5 draw. Billy Crellin was in goal. The "A" sequence was broken when we drew Ba...

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

A 7:45pm kick off was always going to be too late a start for the nipper. I bet he's on the bench in his onesie and doesn't appear for the second half.

Small Claims Court - Me and my mate were the first people to get Jim McDonagh's autograph after he'd signed for us. :) :pray: :pray: I think he held the club record for fewest conceded in a league season (know that's not just Keeper, you ain't winning that badge with Zat Knight and Gerald Cid in fr...

Good news. I've had a bit of an idea.

Whatever the result, after the match, we all go on twitter and declare we won. BIGLY.

:lol: I'm having that. I'll throw in that VAR stole the result.

Re: Crellin vs Rachubka

I was at Reading in the 96-97 season when they beat us 3-2 with Jimmy Quinn in goal for most of the second half.

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: Summer 2020 transfers

I don't think he'll get sacked for a long time. Too much invested. Ordinarily, yes. But boards do weird things when there is publicity. FV have given him a contract for 138 league matches plus some cup games. He's roughly 10% of the way through the contract; can't see either party calling it a day ...

I always thought he was one of Kawri's signings. It felt like he was anyway. It seemed clear it wasn't going to work out here so I'm not surprised he's been moved on. Good luck to him.

Nailed on he'll score a hat-trick against us next season.

Well, it used to be, but what about Bolton......? We don't want a return ticket there, so, can we turn the train round at home....? .....

No replays in the Cup this season. We're either on the Wembley Express or getting off at Horwich tomorrow evening.

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

No shots at home to a team that hasn't won until tonight is poor. Still don't see FV pressing the eject button. They have hired him for 138 league games and we're only 11 in. Yonks to go before he sees the exit door.

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

Genuinely no idea what Evatt will do, what the players will do, what I would do, what Mansfield will do or what will happen. Except that I’ll be paying my tenner and watching along with hope in my heart. I paid my first tenner of the season on Saturday. As I expected, I found it very stressful. So ...

Brocky should have done better there.

First game I've seen this season; we look awful.

Re: We three kings of Orient (A)re. Saturday 31 @ 15:00

I was at Brisbane Rd the last time we played Orient and, in normal times, this would have been very high on my list of "must attend" fixtures of the season. I'll console myself with my first iFollow instead. 0-2 to Ian Evatt's Super White Army.
