Though Honeywood’s leg was in an offside position when the goal was scored, if we go back to the previous phase of play when the prosthetic was intact we find that the scoring limb was both onside and behind the ball. The goal stands - unlike the goal scorer immediately after. GOAL!

9 possible seaside away-days in the hat including two cracking ‘greased tea’ derbies.

Dulwich Hamlet v Carlisle United. Leyton Orient v Maldon & Tiptree Stevenage v Peterborough United Bristol Rovers v Bromley Macclesfield v Kingstonian
Bit of a journey for the Cumbrians - into the heart of beardy hipstersdom. Jammy draw for FA Cup Round One first-timers Maldon & Tiptree - should be happy with that. Newtown derby in the flatlands. Tough away day for the Bromley contingent. Likewise Kingstonian - congratulations btw didn’t realise it had been so long.
Day 15 of actively supporting QPR. So far so good. A six goal thriller at St*mf*rd Br*dg* and two home wins including a 3-1 demolishing of Spurs. D W W. This supporting QPR lark is pretty straightforward and bags of fun. Almost too easy really. Leicester will be straightforward, just hope we manage to avoid Liverpool in the semi-final.
Well we certainly managed that. This was more than an FA Cup Quarter Final home defeat. It was an omen. An early sup from the Milk Cup of human despair. In a way I’m thankful to Joe Waters for revealing the true nature of QPR to me so soon - the utter bastard.
Edit: And thank you too xtc for bringing this up for no apparent reason. You’re a card.
You don’t need a ladder to get up on a train. My eyes saw a man atop an ‘ivory train’ Despotically disrupting the plebeians who refuse to follow his orders The dam has been broken He won’t be the last to suffer And the times they are a-changing
