Oh, and don't waste your cash on digital radios!

I listened to my first match on one yesterday and despite the promised "better quality" and "improved performance" Notts County still managed to lose despite twice taking the lead!

Mastermind at 8.30 tonight (6th) has "Football League Grounds" as a specialised subject...

Just as a fad over Xmas, I looked at the current 92 clubs and compared it to when I "did" the 92 back in the 70's/80's..  32 clubs have either changed grounds (most I now need to revist) or have disappeared into the lower, lower reaches of non-league  (Workington for instance).

Just reminded me Phil of a good mate of mine who in the 80`s did the 92. He used to plan his family hols round devon in April and Norfork in August Etc just so he could get the ground visits in. Anyway knowing the local Rivalry ( Sometimes Hatred) between Blackburn Rovers and Burnley (he is a lifelong and staunch clarets fan) I asked him that he must have visited Ewood park to complete his Quest, yes I did he said, I waited 3 years for them to stage an England Youth International there and went to see that!! As you will know it is the ground that you have to visit and not the team, he couldn`t for shame watch Rovers in case anyone found out!

A guy that I know did them all 3 times...

Once to do the ground. Once to see the home team play and then once to sample the atmosphere.. Then he did all the Scots League ground, then the conference.  Mind you he is weird (Supports BHA and in the 70's/80's also had a season ticket at Palace at the same time).

Also know a guy from Dover who supports Burnley and goes /went to all the home games and 90% of the aways in the 80's/90..  Poor bugger though, his name is Nigel Blackburn...  True story.

Believe it or not there are loads of people with the surname Blackburn in Burnley and east lancs, also Preston is a very common surname.

May make an indifferent trudge along to The Den tonight to hopefully watch us see off mighty Dag & Redbridge in the FA Cup.

Not expecting us to make anything other than a hard slog of it  :-\

You will note that I've been rather silent on this subject recently...

NCFC - 1 point in the last 6 league games. Why do we do it to ourselves I wonder?

Nice one!

We did have knocking Doncaster Rovers out of the cup during this current bad run to sustain us.

With Henry returning to Arsenal and Scholes coming out of retirements for Mancs, Leeds looked at getting Speed back. The FA said noe as he was still suspended.



Too soon??

Apparantly Lionel Ritchie was the cabaret on the Costa Concordia.  He literally ended up Dancing on the ceiling..


They had a model of the ship in my local shop at the weekend, they only had 1 so I asked the guy to put it on one side.


I'm on a roll.....


George Michael has come out in sympathy with the C.Concordia..  He says that many a time he has been laid on his side, with his bottom ripped after a nights cruising...

I thank you (available for weddings, birthdays, bar Mizfars).....

5 Premiership managers sitting in a bar, Wenger, Coyle (sorry Claret), Pulis, Redknapp, Ferguson.

Wenger gets a pint in for them all and so they take it in turns  all the way up to Ferguson.  Wenger pipes up and says that Fergie can no longer take part as....

...

he is not in the 5th round...
