Nice to see the Saints / Hummel retro kits. Have to say they certainly produced some of the all time greats. Seeing 'Draper' / 'Draper Tools' as the sponsor got me thinking at how it must be nice for them getting some free publicity, that said are Draper still going? Is their 'base' still in Eastleigh / Chandlers Ford?

Fair play, maybe all footballers are not complete thickos and some do have the odd brain cell.
Apparently the lad agreed a new contract / deal with City which he brokered all by himself and no agent involvement. You never know, perhaps this could catch on and wipe out at least a small portion of the greedy agent fees (probably wont however and the players will simply coin more cash for themselves).
Mind you, most footballers probably need an agent to write 'print' their names below the signatures.

United and Liverpool are again pushing for plans to reduce the PL to 18 and make the elite richer?
Crack on boys....how about instead though you all fcuk off to a new Euro Superleague and leave the rest of us to watch our teams continue to play other English clubs in a domestic league.
I seriuosly wonder if we are now at a crossroads whereby fans of non fashionable PL teams turn their backs for good?

.....or adopted the wonderful 'Southampton Way' of doing things, is anyone else asking themselves when we might see some similar results, i.e. us winning the league or pushing the top 6 (so when they fail we are there) to 'mop up' one of the European spots?
Just wondering if the wheels are still on the bus or not.......

Not sure if you have sky or not, but just seen (sky documentaries) there is a 2 hour doc on Everton - 'Howards Way'. I will watch it later but expect it to be interesting since it involves your halcyon years under Howard Kendall (all of course pre the day when football was 'officially created' circa 1992).

With no fans to boo the players nor show their contempt by walking out of St. Marys on 80 minutes, do we think this will have a major impact on the amount of goals we win these remaining matches by? I am fully expecting home wins for all our remaining games and a big bonus kitty for league positions climbed.

...so quick to want to dismiss or get rid of our players?
Genuine question as of late i see people saying how Bertrand might be too old, Hjolberg ain't all he's cracked up to be, Danso is useless etc. etc.
Whilst i am not saying i agree or disagree with the views sometimes posted, but i don't get it. Especially now as funds are tight and we rightly live within our means.
Bertrand is a case in example. This guy has one the Champions League, capped at international level and yet some want him gone. Question - if he goes who can we a) get better b) for similar monies and c) how do we know their attitude will be half decent?
Especially under the current financial climate i think some of our fan base are bonkers. If we had a sugar daddy then perhaps my views would be similar but we don't. Are we simply too quick to say get shot of our playing staff?

Just reminiscing and playing my way through a couple of Secret Machines albums, cracking band. Anyone lucky enough to see them in the day before one of the brothers sadly passed away?
I have seen my fair share of bands in my life but alas i never caught these guys. Bit gutted really now.
If you had to name one artist or act you would go back in time to see, who would it be?

I think i need to get in touch with Sky and ask them why i am paying daft money for the pleasure of being able to view some 'Live eSports Virtual F1 GP'. I mean, seriously, i have no interest in watching a bunch of sad sacks playing electronic games.
I know times are hard and sky have no live sports to show, but surely they could re schedule some old / older football or cricket matches
Rant over. Enjoy your Bank Holiday all.
|With ITV showing some old games|
at 17:32 23 May 2020
Why did it take the current situation to get them to show some old classics? OK, we all know football was invented with the formation of the PL, but some of us oldies remember the days when players were allowed to tackle, there were only a couple of cameras / angles being filmed, and most players didnt dive and roll round ala Tadic.
With ITV always showing games weekly back in the day there must be masses of games they could show again (regardless of COVID and other shows being canned whilst filming is paused) even if only aired on itv 3 or 4.
