  3. Don't know If anyone is aware of this - a very sad story but worth a mention to set the record straight We all know that there were 33 victims in the Burnden Disaster Well - sort of Back in the day ( March 1946 ) there was no such thing as post traumatic stress and counselling - you just got on with things - or at least you were meant to - that was the way things were in the aftermath of the war Well sadly Robert Jones aged just 34 years old who lived in Bark Street was so traumatised by events at Burnden that day he did not get on with it - he gassed himself The Coroner recorded a suicide verdict on 15th March - 6 days after the disaster and said this "Without seeking in any way to minimise the tragedy at Burnden Park , it is difficult to understand why it should have had such an effect on this mans mind " To me he is the 34th Victim

  5. Just under a year ago I bumped into an old friend in Tesco (booze isle). He told me his lad hadn't played a game in six weeks. His team had too many players, and they were picking 6 year olds 'on merit'. I couldn't believe it, and agreed to help him out until he qualified as a coach. They played their first game in November in a kit I purchased for them. We lost count of the score in a very heavy defeat at Moss Bank (I think). Today, I was almost overcome with emotion- they played the best football I've seen from 7 year olds outside of an academy. We played most of the game with two players less than our opponents, won 12-1, and could've scored 20. Six different scorers, and the other two came close. We passed, communicated, fought and were ruthless. A year ago, these kids wouldn't shout their own name. Never been as proud as a coach... An hour earlier I was coaching another set of 7 year olds who are too shy to shout their own name... Football; I fucking love it

  12. That isn’t entirely accurate as Saturday services have invariably relied on over staff working overtime. The companies then banned overtime and then wondered why they had no staff at weekends. Given the whole dispute has been going on for 3-4 years, the only surprise is that it took so long to resort to strike action. The fact that the DfT have effectively been running the train companies for the last two and a half years should have been something they used to their advantage but they’re content to let it all rumble on with little will to resolve it. Whole thing is an absolute shitshow and the only people losing out are the paying customers.

  17. It'll only be his dad's second ever game in almost 50 years, doesn't like football but giving it a go for the sake of his lad who plays. I've told him if he uses phrases like: "there's always a mistake in him" "best technical player we have but legs are going" "needs to be further out left and cut in" "never get 20 goals while I've a hole in my arse" that everyone will think he's a OINO type.

  20. The article doesn't claim they are. The club are trying to get a new sponsor in, and speaking in positive terms about anyone does no harm. A PR exercise maybe, but better than him saying "we don't want Reebok they're cunts".

  25. There can't be many better penalty takers in world football than Kane. I can't remember him taking one that even gave the goalkeeper a chance, never mind missing.

  28. Bilic only got 18 months, so its basically promotion or he's out with best part of a year's comp. If they go up, they'll struggle (as he did at WBA) and when he gets sacked before Christmas they'll only have to pay up a few months.

  32. Ted Undies at his finest. "Well Ethel, you heard me say "Uncovered a clue. It may help for them with good memories" and guessed that the "good" bit referred to Goodison and hence Everton. Well, it was a good (pauses for laughter) answer but in fact wrong. I also mentioned "Memories", which is a famous song from the musical Cats. And who sang the version that made the charts? Well, it was Elaine Paige as you well know. And which ground shares the same two starting letters of her first name? Yes, it's Elland Road. Hard luck Ethel and Barry. Here's a Dusty Bin to take back to your modest East Midlands home in Syston, just behind the Pukka Pie factory. And here's what you could have won:

  35. Went yesterday and my first ever visit to Chorley FC. Really enjoyed it £10 to get in,programme £3 and decent meat and potato pie for £3. Stood behind the goal and chatted to a Chorley fan who told me all there was to know about the club,players and the budgets/teams in Conference North. He said he saw Santos play for Barnet there and was unplayable. He said he also saw Evatt’s Barrow there. Said they were part time whilst Gloucester City were full time. Reckoned they had budget of 250k when they were in the Conference. Said that cup run had helped them big time financially. That Billy Whitehouse looked a player and good to see Connor Hall score. All in all great to support your local non league team and be looking out for there results over the season.

  36. Tell me about it, the idea of us joining JPL was because we were meant to be using AJ bell as a central venue, that fell through and theres now no under 10 league, hence playing up a year. All home games 1pm at platt lane. The away games are everywhere. Barrow away is a 170 mile round trip for a grass roots game 😫😫 my wanderers season ticket will be getting lent out most weeks! Id love nothing more to get back into it, I loved it but I’ve just not got the time now, plus our Dennis is a rugby man now 🤦‍♂️😂

  39. Cant say Ive been less enthused about an England team. Only Bellingham and Grealish give me any kind of hope for Qatar. Said it before just imagine our back 3 against the pace of Rodrygo or Vin.Jnr? Or even Mbappe. Gives me actual nightmares. If you're going to be pragmatic and cautious you need to be rock solid. Its a disaster waiting to happen this. Really hope Im wrong, I like Southgate and bits of our sqaud are up there as the best in the world. That back line though

  42. Don't mind PNE as I know loads of Preston fans and they're generally alright. Also can't forget how they helped our staff out when the shit hit the fan a few years ago by donating £2000 worth of shopping vouchers, and tried to avoid any resulting publicity. https://www.lep.co.uk/sport/football/preston-north-end/pne-news/preston-north-end-believed-have-helped-out-unpaid-staff-bolton-wanderers-donating-ps2000-worth-shopping-vouchers-667023

  43. 5 Things to Look Out For if you’re going to Victory Park today. 1/ The Pitch. New grounds man started just after the pre season friendly with us when the grass was patchy and too long. He’s worked wonders in a short time and pitch looks fantastic now. 2/ Connor Hall. Likeable ex Wanderer is slimmer and fitter than ever, scoring for fun this season. 3/ A Pint. Have a pint in the sunshine whilst watching the match. 4/ Ustabasi. Chorley player who has pushed further forward this season and getting into the box more, quick and skilful, enjoy his performance, will probably score. 5/ Ice Cream. Celebrate a home win with a cheeky ice cream at Fredericks on the A6 after the game. Believe me, it’s worth queing for. ENJOY YOUR DAY 😁

  44. He spent the game romancing two locals in the pub outside I believe. This cannot go on. Shitting on your customers, costing hundreds of thousands of people a fortune and causing them serious disruption every few weeks is taking the piss. They've made their point, now they need to get back to offering the fucking substandard service they've inflicted on people for donkeys years.

  45. The Hemmings family issue a statement stating they are propping up Preston Norrh End to the tune of £12m per season and have cut back on their budget. The number of ungrateful twats in the comments is insane. It reminds me of us in about 2013/2014.
