Sam's a total machine at the moment… I am genuinely pleased for him. He’s even got a bit of swagger on him. Good lad, keep it going.

I noticed that too. I hope pride doesn't come before a fall.

I've just had a look a look too, they are commenting on how their match thread is 31 (now 32) pages long while ours is only 4. Yeah, because we had a bad 45 and then put it right whereas they have all this money to spend and are having a lousy season - I think they have a lot more to ponder than we do!

The Everton of League Two.

Lintott

No really outstanding performances. Stockport look pedestrian. I doubt they'll threaten.

Then you reach a point where actually you can no longer support the board decisions and resign.  Essentially wash your hands of the situation and walk away.  I'm saying what happened to doing the right thing for the club and supporters? 

For clarity, you can't wash your hands of acts or omissions carried out by the Board whilst you were a member of the Board. You may ask for an indemnity from the Board you have left but this may not be forthcoming or have legal force.

Sorry.

This match appears to be available as a video match pass on IFollow, presumably because of the international weekend (no premier league or Championship games).

He’s at it again the little tyke. Even better that he missed the pen then nodded it in. Counts as an open play goal, making his stats look even better. Good up the good work Sam…

He's a "keeper"!

I wonder if he's passed his driving test yet?

Does this help ?

Eastern Europen athlete setting unbelievable time in mid 80s...nothing to see here.  Grin

Slight sidetrack.  I remember reading an article a couple of years ago about this record when all the controversy was surrounding the South African Caster Semenya.  Only three people (one being Semenya) in the 2000s have got anywhere near this record and when I say near two were nearly a second behind it with one being two seconds which is still quite a way off. 

Funnily enough the only other runners that ran anywhere near that time were Russian and Cuban also in the 80's. 

They even looked at removing records set in that era due to the suspicious nature.

I remember reading that when one of the athletes breaking those records in the 1980s died (in the last few years or so) at the post mortem the pathologist couldn't be certain whether they were a woman or a man so significant the abuse of hormones had been.

I think we need to be far more skeptical about some of the achievements of our own down through the generations.

Now we know why Jimmy Floyd resigned.

Yes. Conditioning is on another planet compared to his era (even compared to 10-15 years ago).

See how many current athletics world records you can find which were set before Frank Large retired….


Medicinal interventions have had a huge impact some still not acknowledged.

Dont forget his starring role in Frankie goes to Hollywood finest video, Two Tribes.

Afraid not;

From Wiki;

The Godley & Creme-directed video depicted a wrestling match between then-US President Ronald Reagan and Konstantin Chernenko, then Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, in front of group members and an assembly of representatives from the world's nations. The match eventually degenerates into global destruction. Certain violent moments ("Reagan" is seen, for example, biting "Chernenko's" ear) were edited from the version shown on MTV.

Horsfall scored with a header from a Corner for Stockport earlier - some things never change.

Regarding the budget;

Did we ever get an official response about where the Carney Chukwuemeka fee is being spent or transferred to ?
14  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Summer Transfer window on: August 29, 2022, 23:08:58 pm
You are right and it looks like he's back at Villa. Unless he dramatically transforms into the next big thing he's unlikely to get a squad number let alone actually playing for the first team. Mind you those Villa fans that bought Chukwuemeka shirts last season have a slim thread of hope.

its £12 - how cheap are ours going to be?!

£5.00. They are both already on sale on the official site.

Michael O'Neill (the former Northern Ireland manager) has been sacked by Stoke City after just 5 league games (one win, one draw).

Jimmy Floyd appears to be on the brink at Burton and is giving out negative sound bites.

My recollection of the Carr/Banks era;

Football in the UK (particularly England) was in a desperate state. Plummeting gates, violence on the terraces, huge policing costs.

Then Derek Banks turned up with money (at a time that a lot of clubs were threatening to go part time) and Graham Carr with his extensive knowledge of the non-leagues and very personal way of going about things.

The first full season they showed enormous promise. The second they romped the title with glorious attacking football and a rush up to the half way line to catch your opponents offside defensive style (or at least that's how I remember it).

Don't forget Ian Benjamins goal scoring before and during this era. One of Carr's biggest mistakes - letting him go because he didn't think he'd be good enough for Division 3.

We had that Jon Millar from Chelsea on loan, he played in the cup tie at Newcastle. Wasn’t Irvin Gurnon on loan initially as well. Also there was a young striker from West Ham who had some connection with Warren Donald. I think he scored a couple and then it didn’t work out after that? My memory is not what it was so I may have got some of this arse-upards.

Paul McMenemy - Lawrie's nephew. He came on loan from West Ham.

That will horrify some!

Their silence is so much louder than words Evers
