Watford v Dale 1986.

Funny Old Game
at 18:07 7 May 2019

When Oldham beat Fulham in the FA Cup, their fans were singing "Dale are falling apart again" and to be honest, I thought they had a point.

Roll on a few months and here we are, still a division above them, as the news breaks tonight that Pete Wild has resigned and a number of first-team regulars are leaving.

Very much the Alan Parry of his time, KK (aka Cliff Barnes) has shuffled off this mortal oil.
National League North Update
at 08:08 21 Apr 2019

1. Chorley beat Stockport 2-0 in yesterday's top of the table clash to go two points clear.
2. Bradford (Park Avenue) must be the only team with punctuation in their name AND....
3. If they get through the play-offs, they would only be one division away from Bradford (City).
4. Looks like relegation to the Northern Prem for FCUM.
5. Plenty of former league teams in the table below:

Football Spoonerisms
at 14:39 4 Nov 2018

Named after Nicky Spooner who used to mix up the first letters of words.

Randy Odes - he left Latics to focus on erotic poetry
Low Jolly - he scored but Forest lost
Bony Tuck - he was never asked to share his chicken butties at Maine Road

Just been on their site ahead of tomorrow's game and found these anecdotes. Would any of the older generation care to explain themselves?

we got onto the front page of the national press after a game at rochdale early 70's lots of trouble mostly caused by the police. one mounted copper rode his horse into the luton fans on the terracing.
one fan at the back of the crowd shouted out to a friend at the front so the police waded in and dragged him out, the next i saw him was at the train station and he had been well battered, he had done nothing, the cops caused all the trouble that day and we got the blame.
That was a pretty terrifying day to be honest, the police lost control from the start. Thought it started with a kid being knocked down by a police car as they marched several special train loads up the hill - that's what we were told anyhow.

I also seem to recall that the Riot Act was read out on the pitch which meant they could ride horses into the crowd (coming from that muddy bank at the other end).

The Sun (not the rag it became then) had a large picture of the trouble, thought it was centre spread? I had to make sure my old man didn't see it as I was clearly visible - not too many people in that crowd with long hair and glasses!

There was still LTFC graffiti on the station until they completely refurbed it.

There's some quite clever stuff going on there, especially Grampian's effort.
Granada is conspicuous by its absence due to it just being a picture of a G with an arrow pointing north.
I'm torn between LWT and Thames with HTV West a close third, possibly because we used to be able to get a fuzzy version of it which came in handy for Batman.

Decent Bury/Oldham Players
at 10:50 6 May 2018

Wouldn't mind Miller from Bury/Boro if he's going out on loan again. He won't learn much in division 4 and knows where the net is. Mayor also looks like a player Hill could get the best out of, injuries permitting.

Latics have some up and coming defenders but if McGahey goes, I'd prefer an experienced centre-half to bring Delaney on. No one else from there looks up to standard.
Who do we want from div 2 and 4?
at 23:01 5 May 2018

Two from Bolton, Burton, Birmingham, Barnsley and Breading.
One from Exeter, Cov, Lincoln and Notts.

Bolton, Birmingham and Notts for me.

1. Stockport County made it to the play offs in the National League North but were knocked out by Chorley last night.

2. Here's a nice goal from Jason Peake.

In and out of the Kitching
at 18:09 28 Apr 2018

Kitching and Humphrys both disappeared at h-t on Tuesday; neither was even on the bench today. I don't subscribe to the news feeds so the answer might already be out there but please can someone tell me if

a) they were both injured
b) they were deselected due to being substandard
c) something else is the reason?
at 09:48 8 Apr 2018

Does anyone know why we can no longer exit stage left at the Sandy/Wilbutts corner at the end of the game? There's been no way out there for the past four or five games.

Is it punishment for the end of season do revolt?
Just seen this
at 18:02 19 Mar 2018

1. Is this the end of season awards evening?
2. Shouldn't they be celebrating the 1969 promotion next year?
