Feeling whimsical
at 12:28 26 Mar 2020

Do you ever walk down the street and bump into the guy that used to be you ?
Leggin' it to Paddy Power's clutching a poorly worked out but optimistic Lucky 15 then zooming into the pub for four or five pints and telling all and sundry that the Rangers will put six past Forest in the forthcoming game.
Already it seems like a lifetime ago...

Oi, Ref !

Are referees salaried these days or are they paid game by game ? I'd hate to think of poor Keith Stroud going short.....

Just reading an article in the paper about Ollie at Grimsby. Apparently they have a chant of just one word - FISH. What would our one-word chant be ?

Another stormy Saturday

Storm Jorge due to spoil the game tomorrow. I dunno, I remember when storms had proper names like Storm Alf or Storm Eric. I walked through Richmond Park this morning. Beverley Brook has burst its banks. Shocking damage.

Norton motorcycles

In administration. It doesn't seem so long ago that British motorbikes ruled the world, although it is of course about 50 years ago. I had a number of them in my youth, Triumphs, Royal Enfields, Ariel etc. Oh, and a BSA. Bloody Sore Arse we used to call them.
Anyone else with fond memories of British bikes ? They were leaky and vibrated but they had style.

Monkey House

Don't get to hear a lot of bands these days. Just heard Monkey House. Obviously superb musicians but just a Steely Dan tribute band or a fine band on their own account ?

Work 'til you're 75
at 19:11 22 Aug 2019

Suggested by a right wing think-tank the other day. I thought someone on here might have commented, so I've put it up. Depends on the sort of job. If heavy labouring it'd be work 'til you drop. Then there's the effect it would have on employment prospects for younger workers. Me, I wouldn't mind a few extra years, dunno about 75 though !

Bolton
at 21:13 19 Aug 2019

Bolton, with only three senior players available have postponed their match with Doncaster scheduled for tomorrow. This won't go down well with the EFL, but it's anout time the EFL took responsibilty for what is happening to some of the clubs under its umbrella. They'll probably just punish Bolton and wash their hands of it.

Famous Last Words

I suppose the two most famous are King George V who is supposed to have said “Bugger Bognor” and Franco who, when told that the people wanted say goodbye said “Why, where are they going ?”
My favourite is Adam Faith who said “ 'ere, that Channel 5's shit innit? “

Favourite pub names
at 22:42 14 Jul 2019

Not having anything else to occupy what I call my mind, I suddenly started to think of my favourite pub names. I find the Ship Aground very evocative and I also like the Dog And Muffler and The World Turned Upside Down. Any good 'uns ? Not made up ones please.

Anyone know when the latest QPR accounts, the ones up to May 31st 2019 are due to be released? I know the ones up to May 31st 2018 showed a 22 million loss. I just wonder how much we can afford to lose in the current year to avoid another FFP fiasco.

Fishy titles

In an idle moment, I was thinking of the influence of fish in popular music. Songs such as Thank You For The Dace, Salmonchanted evening, Twist And Trout etc, performed by wonderful entertainers like Pike and Tina Turner, The Carp-enters and Gill Scott Heron.

An absolutely roasting day, but just thankfully for the one day. The poor sods on the Continent have had temps in the mid forties all week. Good boozing weather though.....

Room 101

Not a great fan of the TV programme of that name, but there are things that really irritate me and should be consigned to Room 101. My pet hate is people who blow their noses on serviettes in a restaurant and leave it on the table. I witness this all the time.

BBC Licence
at 12:04 11 Jun 2019

Well, bang goes the free TV licence just as I near the age to qualify for it. To be fair, most pensioners can afford to pay, and those on pension credit still get it free. What bugs me is the way the Beeb has become dumbed down to commercial TV level recently. The BBC's integrity has gone by the board supposedly in pursuit of ratings. There should be one channel that retains some dignity and sadly the Beeb is slipping away from that position.

Salary Cap ?
at 09:50 1 Jun 2019

I read in my morning rag that a salary cap is to be discussed at Championship clubs' end of season meeting. I hadn't realised that such a cap is in operation in Leagues 1&2.
I suppose it would help but wonder what level wages will be capped. They'll probably cap the wages of turnstile operators !

92 clubs' profit and loss
at 08:42 25 May 2019

A table published it yesterday's Times showing the profit/loss for all 92 clubs in the season before last. There we are in 90th place with only Fulham and Wolves below us in 91 and 92 and they both went up.
Obviously we already knew about that season's losses but disturbing to see it in such stark reality and shows how difficult things are for the club.

EFL attendances
at 17:53 9 May 2019

Apparently this season attendances in the second to fourth tiers of the game reached a 60 year high. I find this surprising. Most of us tend to think that youngsters, beguiled by Premier football on TV would desert their EFL teams. Certainly in our league the standard of football isn't great and marred by “game management”
Very surprising.

Line Of Duty

Although not a fan of the tellybox, I, like millions of others have been following Line Of Duty. Bit disappointed with the last episode. I was convinced DS Arnott was “H”

We were left in limbo by the last episode. There will be a further series though.
