From When Saturday Comes club-by-club season review/preview. Jake Farrell identifies the best and worst moments for Stevenage last season:
Best Moment: The moment Ilias Chairs's loan from QPR was finalised. Scored or was involved in about 80 per cent of our goals after he came in, including several worldies.
Worst Moment: The moment Ilias Chair's loan from QPR ended. Slightly scared about where all of those goals and assists are going to come from. Remember the name — he'll be in the Premier League wirthin three years.
Nothing we hadn't heard before but nice to see it emphasised.
Watched LAFC, who were yet to drop a point, lose to the previously winless Whitecaps last night. Niko played sixty minutes for LA and acquitted himself well enough. He played left wing-back in a very high-press 3–5–2 set-up. Made no major errors, his passing and positioning were good, his crosses — though he only made a couple — a bit wild. He was pulled, I think, as LA were chasing the game and needed someone who was more confident taking players on.
I haven't checked but I wouldn't be surprised if Hemed's "goals per minutes played" is better than most of us realise. He looks deeply unimpressive: can't run, doesn't tackle, limited ball skills but he's occasionally in the right place for the garbage goals. Like today. I suspect most players would never have expected Scowen to turn that waist high pass back in front of goal, but Hemed was there waiting for it. He's maybe a bit like Sylla, a pure goal hanger who's useless at everything except scoring goals?
June Whitfield is gone at 93. A wonderful comedy actor, with immaculate timing and delivery. My first memory of her is as Ethel Glum ("Eth") with Jimmy Edwards. I hope she left with a smile. Ta ta love, and thanks for making the world a happier place.
They probably won't be the only potential venues to withdraw. So Morocco it is probably (Gawd knows how.) But protecting labour rights, taxation powers, international reputation and future negotiating potential with other global event organizers is more than enough reason to stand up to a uncompromising bully. FIFA really are an utterly shameless organization.
'When Saturday Comes' is after a colour picture of our Feyenoord-style red and white halved away shirt from the mid to late 70s (for a regular feature on notable shirts). The only one they can find online isn’t good enough quality to use and none of the regular agencies they use has one in colour (only black and white) . A scan from a programme would probably be OK.
Can anyone help? If so PM me and I'll tell you who to contact.
