    Thought this was the annual call to sign him :(

    There will no doubt be some dewy eyed individuals who would want us to sign him, but we've moved on, and he's shown he's sadly not really up to league football in this country anymore

    2 goals in 15 games in a league worse than the Scotch one.
    Hardly ripping it up.

    Indeed, and neither of his two goals are in the league either. Sadly, he's just turned out to be a bit shit.

    The £3M we got for him, now, looks to have been pretty good business.

    The 100 is something you're more likely to take your kids to watch than go with your mates for a piss-up. Similar to women's football.

    One of our customers said similar, I think he referred to it as "Cricket for people who don't like cricket" and another customer said he didn't want to watch cricket with loads of screaming kids.

    I've not watched any of it at all, I just imagine it's the same as 20/20, but purely designed to try and get young children into the game isn't it?

  4. For some reason, my work "acquired" 20 tickets for The Oval (Tuesday 23rd August) - at present we honestly can't give them away, absolutely zero interest from anybody so far. They might go nearer the day, but at present, we can't get any customers or staff to even consider it.

    Any tickets we get for a 50 over match, or a day at a proper test, generally go in about 10 minutes as customers are all over them

    I saw a guy use his watch in the bay horse last week.


    My mate always uses his watch. On occasion, people look at him like he's an alien for doing so.

    Ah yes - forgot about that small issue - can't get anything on Vodephone. That is a massive issue if you do use everything on your phone.

    Mind you, I go with my Dad and he's tight as. He buys Hunters pasties, warms them up and puts them in tinfoil for halftime. He says they're good handwarmers as well when it's cold 😁

    I think @L/H White wraps his cans of beer in tinfoil to keep them cold when he's on an away day

    The amount of whining about this on social media is amazing. What’s wrong with people. 

    They just like having something to moan about

  8. You know what, I went to all of them....but I don't remember any postponement at all.

    The first game, the 3:3, I remember us getting there early, in the back of an HB Electronics van (as I worked there at the time) -  I vaguely recall  Mark Came with a 90th minute equaliser - the rest of the game a complete blank.

    I also recall, the home game and thinking, for years, that Cowdrill had thwacked from a fair distance out, and at far more of an angle than it actually was (similar to the Van Basten goal in the Euro Cup Final) - funny how the mind plays tricks

    I must make a note. If ever I get to know anyone called Sandy I'd better not ever leave a package for her at Morrisons's customer service desk.

    unless it's some sanitary products of course

    Haha, surely he's a plumber now? Can't still be playing?

    Jumper for Goalposts stuff now, AFC Fylde, with another former Bolton "favourite" Stephen Dobbie who must be about 50 now

    Sadly those days are no more. Living my best life, I was.

    I think I shook my head the second most times in the world that day, only beaten by @L/H White after Tom Walker's corner at Brentford.

    I remember that fondly. He just said "That's poor" shook his head a few times and then walked off back under the stand 🙂

    Interesting that as I think I spend loads less Cashless. 

    Save a fortune in flying Scotsman too.

    Sadly it's not what it once was.


    I think @L/H Whiteis still in mourning, he loved it in there

    See, I pay by card mostly but always carry a ton in my other pocket for when the technology fails, or cash only.

    You cheeky fucker. 😁

    I do this, try to pay by card when possible, but always have an emergency £50/£100 in cash

    It won’t increase sales. Sales will only diminish.

    Our local village club recently went to cashless.....in the last couple of weeks, sales have gone up. The general thought is that turnover has gone up, because people don't just have £10 in their pocket, have three pints and then go home, they stay longer and spend more now that they're not using "real cash"

    You do now see people giving other people cash now, and then those other people using their cards, which can look a bit like clandestine drug deals. Still, it seems to be working for them

    The Beeb are pushing their agenda to promote it, in the same way they kept telling us about the magic of the FA cup, when the only footy coverage they had was Hartlepool vs Borehamwood in a 1st round replay. 


    Get out!

    Be good to see Bury back at Gigg Lane. Heard though stand behind goal( not away end) has failed safety checks and can’t be used? Will cost a few quid to sort? But I suppose they will not fill it anyway?? 

    They won't be getting 1000 on in whatever jumper for goalposts league they end up in

    I doubt they'll get anywhere near the league for decades now, unless they get back massively rolled (and that's quite unlikely I'd have thought) 


    I always wondered, and I'm sure @Carloswill be able to explain it. Why when they were in trouble, did they not attempt to merge with FCUM, to save themselves and also to get FCUM into the league....
