Non footie related accepted .
Will start with canned laughter on TV shows, loud laughter and whooping sounds like the entire audience rolling about in the isles .

Best wishes to the England Rugby guys, bring the Webb Ellis Trophy back home tomorrow please.
Remember being in the LB limo to somewhere when we last won in 2003, so looked it up.
Most definitely grottiest hostery visited in our travels and a 4-0 away defeat ... Where?

|TV snippet |
at 06:51 22 Oct 2019
U's feature on the TV snippet on BBC regards Jeff Astle and the connection between dementia / football career.
For those without black and white the U's are not in the stripes !!
Black and white clip shows Bobby Cram beaten to the cross which Jeff Astle headers onto the upright, leaving goalie Graham Smith floundering . Close up of Jeff Astle then shows Eric Burgess (with large sideburns )in the foreground.
One thing to note the old club / borough badge .
|The walk off .|
at 07:50 19 Oct 2019
Now away from the full glare of international football, I wonder how many walk off will be triggered by racism in the domestic programme.
Heart say none, head says some .

|Hoarding . |
at 18:10 15 Aug 2019
With the eminent departure of KVY, it will now look unlikely that the scouts will be flocking down to JsCS for future investments, at least for the next couple seasons has time is required for any new blood to establish themselves .
Only Senior would be on anyone's radar, no hoarding here though, the cupboard is pretty much bare thereafter.

|A Millers Tale |
at 08:40 21 Jul 2019
Youngest debutant for the U's, Todd Miller has signed for the Seagulls.
U's Director of Football Tony Humes had mixed feelings about the news, explaining: "I'm torn between being delighted for Todd and disappointed we won't see more of him in a U's shirt."
"The element of disappointment is there because we want to develop our players and see them progress into the first team here in north Essex, that's the main aim of the Academy."
"But when a young player gets an opportunity to be at a Premier League side and feels that step is best for him, there's no way we would stand in his way and we all wish him the best of luck.
Could this become a worrying trend of academy players to jump first team football for a better step in development at PL level .
No detail of the transfer, do we get extras, upon appearances etc .
Was he just better than the rest within the club ?
