i knew Sowerby was injured which is why he came off on Saturday Ö. but i didnít predict Hylton getting dropped i must admit .
Appere on his own up front doesnít inspire me i have to say .

Sammy alongside/ behind Appere?

This wages thing doesn't make sense. Why would Leicester loan him out for a season when its his last season there anyway?!!

If he is on 5k a week (so 250k for his remaining contract) - pay him orf 100k, then we sign him on a 3 year deal on 2.5k a week! With a big percentage clause in it if we sell him on for big wedge. Everyones a winner. Leicester save themselves 150k in wages for a player they don't want to keep, Cobblers get a promising player on their books within their wage structure and Eppiah takes a small hit £ wise for his first year but ensures he's got a decent wage coming in for 3 years.

Or something like the above!  Grin

Unless there are serious concerns with his long term fitness....

...which if that's the case, then a loan deal doesn't really benefit either Leicester or Cobblers. He turns out bloody brilliant and goes somewhere else for free at the end of it. Or he turns out sh1t and crocked and no one wants him!!

A 3 year contract with some clauses in it I reckon is the best way forward. But what do I know!!!  Grin

They are either confident in his ability or they are not, give him to us, to shop window him, with a decent sell on or buy back clause and they cover themselves.

Risk of power cuts this winter. At least driver's of EV's can queue for fuel at home. https://www.itv.com/news/2022-05-30/ministers-warned-of-millions-of-winter-power-cuts-and-rationed-supply


They'll be on candle power...  Grin

Deepest sympathy and condolences.  R.I.P.

For any making the trek down, the Horsham contingent will be taking a few pre-match liveners in the Old Punch Bowl and the White Hart. Both situated in Crawley High Street.

I'll drive across but I'll be in the club bar.   Wink

It's a strange one this, because we were told dating back to our school days that keepers had to wear long sleeves. A lad (part time referee) I later worked with told me that keepers could wear short sleeves but were required to wear gloves when doing so. I accept that keepers nearly always wear gloves these days, but do you know if the sleeve/glove thing is correct?

We used to have keepers jerseys long sleeved with padding on the elbows and chest without gloves.
It's never been a requirement either way.

They only have to be distinguishable from their own team, the opposition and the officials.
They should also be distinguishable from the other keeper but that isn't part of the Law.

Chucking it down down here at the moment, forecasted for thunder and lightning around 1700hrs.

In my later years I moved to CB from CM, I'm only 5'10" but there were very few forwards who beat me in the air. A lot to do with technique and a bit of experienced 'guile'.   Wink

Back in the 70/80's did not some players wear tights during some cold spells? Pretty sure no Cobblers player ever succumbed to this type of apparel.  Can also remember some Keepers wearing some form of tracksuit bottoms.

I remember watching Keith Weller at Filbert Street when he wore white tights.
Many keepers have and there's a few who still do today.
10  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Hartlepool Sat 13th Aug. on: Today at 08:51:09
Can outfield players wear tracky bottoms like goalies?

They can, as long as they are under the shorts/socks and the same colour as the main/lower colour of the shorts.
11  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Hartlepool Sat 13th Aug. on: Today at 00:31:08
I was told that keepers can’t wear short sleeve shirts or are allowed to roll their sleeves up. This is so the referee can more readily identify a handball in a crowded penalty area. I thought you’d get it, so I have an uneasy feeling you’re going to tell me it’s bóllocks:

Yes, it is bollox  Grin as demonstrated by a number of goalkeepers around the world.  Wink
Still doesn't look right to me but it is allowed.
12  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Hartlepool Sat 13th Aug. on: Yesterday at 22:31:05
We should have an obscure law of the week. To that end what can every player in the team wear bar one player and why?

That one has stumped me?  Either an obvious or obscure one but I assume that the one player is the keeper?
Even keepers can wear spectacles.

Regarding having an obscure Law of the week,  we normally have at least one provided by our games each week anyway.  Grin

yes use a vpn often
In uk though its hard to sign up as being overseas

Will Hill were the only bookies who would allow me an account when I lived in Germany,  even though we had a British address.

I look forward to that pint you promised me. It will have to be a different game though because I can't make tomorrow - I know I'm not a true supporter like you.

The tutorial wasn't to read, it was filmed showing supporters entering the stadium with different types of codes on phones, tickets, season tickets etc. You didn't watch it did you Evers?   

Someones pants are on fire?  Grin
15  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Hartlepool Sat 13th Aug. on: Yesterday at 18:24:22
He is indeed.

It would be on of those that would have most scratching their heads and shouting 'You don't know what you're doing " even though they do.

I hear people like that at most games... Grin
Recently I was sat behind a 'family/group' at Grimsby giving the Assistant Referee quite a bit of 'verbal' at each corner because the ball was outside of the quadrant at the corner, when we all know that the ball only has to be 'over' the line, it doesn't have to be actually touching it.   Cool

It couldn't have been anyone on here could it? Because everyone on here knows all of the Laws, don't they? Shocked
16  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Hartlepool Sat 13th Aug. on: Yesterday at 11:58:47
I'm waiting for Pete Walton to text in the answers  Grin

If as quoted,  he was incorrect on Saturday,  the on-field official was correct.  Wink
17  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Hartlepool Sat 13th Aug. on: Yesterday at 11:56:25
It's a goal because the goalkeeper touched it? Therefore, a restart from the centre circle. 


Correct.
Unfortunately Barrow were denied a point at Sutton on Saturday because the four officials were the only people in the ground who didn't see the goalkeeper touch it,  disallowed the goal and awarded a free kick to the defending team in the goal area.   Shocked
18  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Suggested team and formation for crawley away 16/08/22 on: Yesterday at 11:49:46
Grin

I was about to say, who is this new player called Keeper?

It'll be 'Midweek Maxted' tomorrow will it not?
19  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Hartlepool Sat 13th Aug. on: Yesterday at 11:46:58
Attacking Indirect free kick goes into the goal after the defending goalkeeper touches it with his fingertips.
How is the play restarted?
20  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Hartlepool Sat 13th Aug. on: Yesterday at 11:37:10

 The deciding opinion will come from B&S!

He can opinionate all he wants,  my answer is correct.  Cool
