    I think Stan Collymore is ace.

    He did us some damage during his career thats for certain. Southen then Forest then Liverpool. Always scored against us.

    Loved him on the radio in the glory days of feist night and game day.

    Does a good cameo on a Friday but nowhere near enough.

    Always speaks well for me and knows his shit.

    Not for me . Andy Todd had the right idea .

    Ps . He turned out to be a nutcase .

    Taking the muppet situation out of this which is a given.

    I’m with Daz on this.

    People of a certain age (45-50ish 🤣) had seen fuck all coming to Burnden up till that point - Keegan in 82/83 sticks out and Hagi in 93 (not sure whether that was before/after this) think it’s before. There will be others but very slim pickings.

    He was fantastic at that point and had some special talent.

    Old gits watching pre 82 need not reply 🤣

    Can I throw Martin Keown into the conversation. 

    Playing right back for Arsenal. 

    Completely ran the match .

    A master class in defending and support play

    What? At all?

    Traffic was never this bad when we were getting PL crowds.

    Buses don't get priority now, since the machines came in. They are just in the free for all melee. That's the reason I saw my arse over the buses. Apart from bringing them forward an hour for 3:00 KO that is.

    Buses not getting priority is now my reason for driving. 

    Park on Tesco , ( top end ) .

    Applaud team off ( win or lose)

    Jump in car ,negotiate roundabout,  cut in at the lights straight past Bonny Lasses .

    Park up at home , brisk 5 min walk to Brewery Tap .Arrival 17.32 .

    Loved that today. Shit first half but all us 2nd. Santos completely dictates the pace of the game, which just felt too slow today, but zero fucks we beat a local team finally which is a monkey off our back. 

    The first half wasn't shit . The players were carrying out instructions.  Not to go " gungho " and leave the back door open . Blackpool were a league above us last season and at times it showed .

    Evatts tactics payed off , substitutions spot on .

    That goal  was unbelievable. 

    He will never hit a ball more sweetly. 

    Roll on Tuesday. 

    And we continue in the same fashion against Exeter in 2 weeks time

    The last ever official release by The Beatles is being played on BBC Radio 2 at 2 o'clock. Got a very bitter sweet feeling about it as a Beatles fanatic. 


    Will it be yet another scouse Nursery Rhyme with  background music , like 83% of their back catalogue
