    FOREST AWAY

    Regarding Jason Steele, Brighton have the misfortune of having him on their books. He signed for them in June 2018 and, so far, has made just the one appearance in the FA Cup.

    Interests me how many accents are unable to pronounce the letter r when it’s in the middle of a word, especially Mancs and Yorkshire folk. Car park becomes cah pahk, Mars Bar becomes Mahs Bah etc. Even the inbreds prounounce Ashley Barnes as Ashlah Bawnes.

    Carabao Cup 2018/19

    Just watching an interview with the Chelsea manager. He’s backed down. Lack of a spine me thinks.

    Carabao Cup 2018/19

    Can’t stand either side but I was willing City to win after that petulant refusal to come off by the Chelsea keeper I’d never heard of. Just sums up the power that players in the Top Flight have. I would have gone on and kicked the fecker off into the stands. Whilst I felt sorry for the Chelsea manager, he should have had the balls to assert his authority and put the little bar stuard in his place. Great that he let an easy penalty creep into the net under his body. Let’s hope there’s a hefty fine coming his way together with life in the reserves until the end of the season..

    Brexit Thread

    My feelings in a nutshell. Anyone who votes Tory needs their head examining but to vote for Corbyn and his crew would be a disaster. The calibre of the current crop of politicians, across all parties, is the worst in living memory.

    Mine mirrors the old Lancashire boundary (it’s still there but that’s another story) that includes Manchester, Liverpool and Barrow in Furness. The darkest area included East Lancs. A smidgin crept into West Yorkshire, I hate to admit. Now living in Northwich, Cheshire, I have yet to pick up any ‘posh twat’ phrases (tee, hee). They do say ‘eh up’ more than us Lancastrians which I found hard to believe.

    FA CUP

    Will probably suffer a narrow defeat but it is also a game that is winnable.

    Attendances

    Good point and something the club should take on board. It’s not totally applicable to football clubs as they have an element of their fan bases that will turn up, come what may. I am one who is fully p!ssed off with the surcharge. I face a one hundred mile round trip when I attend. I am also a season ticket holder at Wigan Warriors. I have a variety of hobbies, interests and commitments and sometimes make a last minute decision to make the trip to Ewood. I can afford the £3 surcharge and do sometimes pay it but it annoys me no end that someone who has bought a ticket a few hours before me gets in £3 cheaper. Get your act together Rovers.

    Went to watch Witton Albion today in the 4th qualifying round of the FA Cup. They were playing Solihull Moors of the National League, managed by none other than Tim Flowers. Witton have settled in nicely to the Northern Premier League (level 7) since their promotion a couple of seasons back but today was men against boys. Solihull were a big side, not big lumps but big, fit lads and Witton never really had a sniff. Just two or three half-chances and that was it. They held out until part way through the second half but ended up losing 2-0. The attendance was 600 odd which is roughly double the norm. Good to see Tim Flowers, still a big lad and gone grey now, quiet in the first half but barking out instructions constantly in the second.

    Rugby League

    Great win for Wigan last night and a superb send off for Shaun Wane, our departing Head Coach who is heading over to the ‘dark side’ and a coaching role with Scotland. It was a really tough game with both defences on top but Wigan having the edge on creativity and doing just enough to win it. Also leaving now are John Bateman and Ryan Sutton, both have signed on for Canberra in the NRL together with Sam Tomkins who is heading for Catalan Dragons. Special mention for Shaun Wane who has had his detractors over the last couple of seasons for a ‘less exciting’ brand of football. I have never wavered in my support of him and our trophy cabinet speaks volumes. Three Championships, one Challenge Cup, one League Leaders Shield and one World Club Challenge (winners) under his seven year tutelage. Legend.

    Rodwell signs

    I was born eight weeks premature, so I had to be delivered in Queens Park, Darwen North. Otherwise, it would have been Bull Hill, Darwen.

    Lancashire Clubs - Round Up

    According to Friends of Real Lancashire - see www.forl.co.uk - the government stated, back in 1974, that the new “counties” were administrative areas only and that the original boundaries of counties such as Lancashire were still in place. However, the media tended to refer to Greater Manchester and Merseyside etc as “counties.” Where I worked in Darwen, we used to get customers from far afield and we had a bit of fun with them as to which County they thought they were from. I once said to a guy, ah, Barrow in Furness, Lancashire and he had no idea it is technically still a part of the Red Rose. Generally, those from Liverpool and Widnes etc seemed to embrace Merseyside but those from places like Bolton, Bury and Wigan wanted nothing at all to do with Greater Manchester.
