  1. It's a much underrated sport, are playing numbers declining?
  2. Poor title. Wild addresses the point fully in a recent interview in the courier. He doesn't want the wrong personality because that will upset the balance. Sounds like he is looking upwards for a temporary replacement. Sensible management.
  3. To be fair, your coding was very advanced for 1933
  4. Another player might have coughed to it
  5. You are always right sunshine, it's instinctive for you. We all know and accept that.
  6. Alf Ramsey? Did ok with England and not had a job for years.
  7. He pulled us out of the mire and dropped us back in it. His effect was temporary and his team failed at the crucial moments in the league, the opportunity to stay up presented itself well before the final game. Just 3 wins from the last 10 matches, comical Kelly got 2 in 10! Then when that final, final chance came on the last day of the season his team went out on a whimper against average opponents who had nothing to play for. The Trophy win was memorable but only almost keeping us up after promising more was the complete opposite. I expect the reality is that he has zero chance o
  8. Don't worry about that, he'll be selling off all that stolen art from World War 2 to fund a promotion putsch.
  9. Did he not play at York for a while? Remember him being in court for something up there.
  10. I wouldn't say poor. They worked hard, they had a plan that worked on this day but wouldn't work week-in, week-out. Macdonald was the only really outlet, cut the supply line to Denton and then we would have been stumped. We were big, we were aggressive, we had tempo, that might be what you get out of a Heath team.
  11. You could, but looking at the context of at least one of those assists, not sure it makes him somebody I would want in the centre of my attack. Overall, I didn't come away impressed with his contribution. You have several much, much better players out there. For us I always thought him too light weight, certainly for the rigours of week in week out Conference National. He hasn't had a serious run in competitive football, the next couple of months might give you that and only then will you really know if he is up to it.
  12. It was an interesting first outing for us. I thought going forward there were long periods where we were simply relentless and with some better finishing in the first half the margin of victory would have been much greater. Denton was everything that people have described, Peni & Burrow were mobile and dangerous, Macdonald really did rip them apart and also provided some excellent balls into the box. Nuneaton weren't a bad side at all. However, they didn't seem as fit as we did and also there were points in the game where their heads went down, particularly the very moment they slump
  13. Agree about the decision, marginal at best, reffing to the home crowd perhaps! That said, Germany losing is quite nice. Thought France were very poor up to point of getting a leg up from the ref.
  14. Am in Nimes tonight, crazy here, thousands in the streets, bleeding car horns going like mad! Quite an experience, almost like going to the Shay on a Tuesday in February.
  15. Sort of like a cross between Ninian Park and the Den you mean?
  16. If tnis goes on several major teams are going to get kicked out. Am assuming that includes France after their local youths seem to have been involved too.
  17. I was thinking the third against Chasetown is the one that sticks in my mind. Goal of the season I believe that year and of course around the time of Trevor Storton's death which added a strong emotional element.
  18. Which one of you is speaking now?
