    I do Thorpey, Mrs Thorpe (obviously) she did the best ham barms and custard pies 

    Had a fair few myself! And the bacon barms, bacon & egg barms, meat & potato pies, fruit pies.

    In my bloody element when she got an arcade of video machines put in the back storage room!  Happy days and a good old dear!

    you reckon wrong

    Only a little reference to the PFA dosh he got.

    Only experience I have is that a bet of £750 at 14/1 with Skybet for a manager to be sacked sent the odds down to 9/4 a few years back.

  4. One of the lads that works at Reading FC tells me that the club are coming up tomorrow to meet KA then Parky to discuss the Reading job.

    Compensation? - may be a good thing considering?

    Parky going? - done the best he can with what he has but may be time for a change imho

    Let's see what happens .........

    Still can't see why Whatmores goal was disallowed.

    That was when you were offside even if you were half dead by the corner flag.  Gary Jones off at the back of Whatmore I think.  Couldn't really see from where I was in the paddock at the time and I was only 10.

    What visa is he in the country with?

    last time I applied for a sponsors licence it was £500 and a right pain in the ass (4years ago)

    its all too much trouble imo

    Here on a visitor's visa until February.  They want over £2.4k for the licence which a club must get.

    He's got an offer from Malta today, a couple of conference clubs may take him or there's the chance to go to Scotland with a loan out to Belgium.

    Hopefully, get something sorted for the lad.

  7. Got a lad with me who is a senior international for Trinidad & Tobago and just released from a contract from a premier league club in Honduras.


    Aged 22 with a Trinidad & Tobago passport, he's here to be with his auntie as his mum died and doesn't know his dad.  Nice lad who just wants to play football.  Took him to Farnborough Town last week for training and stood out like a sore thumb.  A young JJ tbh and scored a screamer with fantastic balance just like the great man!  They asked him to play a friendly tonight against Kingstonian but his inclusion was denied by the FA.


    After speaking with FA and immigration turns out he needs any club with a sponsor licence to add him to it which may take ten months!


    Must be another round it?  Any ideas anyone as I'm getting fed up trying to sort this out!

  8. minibus coming down mate so have a fewpal


    Sounds like a few meeting up at my local pre match with you lot and a few of the London lot.


    Opens at 11.  Any idea what time you're due to arrive?

  9. From what reading fans said other week they seem to have bigger problems off the field than us


    Ironically I was talking about this with some Reading lads last night and they reckon the players are at the point of just ignoring Stam's negative tactics and just going out and playing their own game.  That could have been interesting if they actually ended up winning.  Could Stam have had a go at them for ignoring him even though they proved his tactics were crap?

  10. Chatting with some Reading lads tonight.


    Agree with them that we have average players who try their bollocks off for each other and Parky.  They have some big money names who don't do either.


    They would take Parky in a heartbeat to replace Stam and I can't blame them.

  11. 41 years ago. Jesus.


    Midweek or Saturday always remember as a kid; the drive from Farnworth and how far the cars were parked up Bradford Road meant how far we had to walk from a side street, the left turn out of Weston Street to see how big the queues were at the Lever End and whether the grey tele vans were parked up and then finally being passed over the turnstile as it was cheaper for my dad to bung the turnstile chap 10p rather than the extra 20p for a dad 'n' lad ticket at £1.10.


    I was gutted that night and can remember the big crowd atmospheres to this day.  Still no idea where my dad used to go for 2 hours during the game when I got left on the front fence though???!!!

  12. Do we do the non-league, next Jamie Vardy bit?


    I see that Roy Hodgson and his side-kick were at Farnborough yesterday watching Sam Smart from Basingstoke Town who fits the KA wish list for an attacker to run at defenders.  Very, very decent.


    Get in there quick Parky lad.  You must have some contacts down here.  Might be worth a quick ring.  

  13. Hopefully it was a good idea to put a few quid behind this little venture!
