I've got BBC sport bookmarked but is it time for the BBC to cancel the page till whenever? The latest page has at its main headline that NFL's Brady leaves Brisbane Broncos or whoever he plays for and lets be honest if you know who he plays for we probably wont get on. It also includes iEliud Kipchoge -never heard of him- isolation diary and world snooker championship postponed updates, all this when I'm expected to self isolate for 4 months.
Did you buy one? Im not a fan of them although I have one from the playoff final v Stockport hidden in the bottom of a drawer somewhere however I would have one maybe even wear it v United and a mug with score on it.
I just stumbled on this song never heard it until a few minutes ago but it has evoked such strong feeling both bitter and sweet. I know Spotland road I walked it or traveled it for some 20 odd years to school to church to work, to go to the pubs Bowling Green, Victoria and Golden Ball and when missing the last bus home and of course to watch the Dale. As a boy I played in Heally Dell on Spotland Rec the moors Caldershaw and Lanehead. listening to this song gave me a lump in my throat it made me nostalgic misty eyed and more than a little emotional. Im steeped in Rochdale I identify with the town its a large part of who I am it's sounds and smells its culture its humour and character. When I left in 1978 I brought with me sounds the Town hall clock chimes St Chads church bells, its smells of pipe tobacco and liniment from Spotland, Lenny Barn and Firgrove and I brought many many memories with me. It saddens me when people knock it and what has happened to the town since I left. My children were born in Birch Hill, my grandson who was born here 20 odd years after I left states on his Facebook page that he is from Rochdale. We are planning a visit next year just the two of us at his request he wants to visit the town he has heard so much about, it will my first return visit since leaving in 78. Yesterday I caught up and chatted with some old friends first on Facebook and then Messenger friends I lost contact with almost 50 yrs ago it was like yesterday an instant connection happy yet tinged with sadness to hear that some old friends are no longer with us. It kinda makes squabbling on a message board whether it be politics or just a different opinion silly when we have so much in common.
I'm trying to determined who the winners are in the demise of Bury?
HM Customs and excise. NO The town of Bury and wider community. NO Sundry Creditors. NO Bury football club. NO Bury supporters. NO Rochdale football club. NO Rochdale Supporters. NO... although you might wonder reading the other thread. The other 22 div1 clubs. NO Division 1 in general. NO Football in general. NO The Football League, NO The Game itself. NO Tradition/History. NO
Did anybody win?
Stewie Day did. he trousered some cash both personally and for his other business's Steve Dale will no doubt make a quid out of the carcass. Will he put anything back in? what do you think?
Have lessons been learned? NO it will happen again and again, has anybody emerged with any credit NO certainly not the EFL not fit for purpose is an apt description. Just what has been achieved by expelling Bury from the EFL? actually nothing has been achieved. The EFL have expelled Bury but not Bolton but will readmit Bury in a few years under another name containing the name Bury it mightb take a few years but it will happen. Could it have been done differently? of course it could, suspending Bury for the remainder of this season would have made far more sense than expulsion giving all interested parties enough time to unravel the mess to see if a solution could be found. The EFL have made a right pigs ear of this by setting a false deadline after deadline after deadline when the only deadline needed would be before the start next season say June 30th. Division one is now a complete shambles more so because of the Bolton fiasco that might see a resurgent Bolton take points off Rochdale or any other team that may cost them a relegation or promotion. Bury and Bolton should have received the same penalty suspension for the rest of this season. Bolton were allowed to start the season with kids and Bury weren't? only the clowns at the EFL know why.
He's not a full quid is he so leave him alone, obviously he's not all there, the lights are on but nobody is home, one sandwich short of a picnic, the lift doesn't go to the top floor, the wheel is spinning but the hampster has fooked off. The EFL must have a clause on here about kids welfare when playing against adults or summat.
We're leaving together, But still it's farewell And maybe we'll come back To earth, who can tell? I guess there is no one to blame <---- now that Stewie has done a runner. We're leaving ground leaving ground <---- Gigg lane Will things ever be the same again? It's the final countdown The final countdown
