Going up! First year and promotion via the play-off's to the 9th tier of English football!
Great to have a decent standard of football to go and watch with my boys, over 3200 there yesterday. They get criticised for a direct style of football, but scoring 123 goals in 38 league matches speaks for itself. One of only 2 fully amateur teams in the division, the other side got relegated with 2 points, so quite an achievement.

So onwards and upwards, one of next years opponents will be a certain vauxhall motors, i really f'cking hope we beat them...........

And in the FA cup for the first time, covid stymied it this year.

I wonder what visiting fans think, in a division where quite a few teams get double figure attendances, in the iom they are surrounded by the cream of our pimply youth giving them loads.....very amusing.

Funny moment yesterday, IOM under the cosh, take the lead. A minute later New Mills equalise. Tannoy announcer , sombre voiced after his ecstatic exclamations announcing our goal, "And the scorer for new mills was....if he'll just turn round so I can see his number...oh, I don't know, one of them scored anyway"
And his attempted pronunciations of non anglo-saxon surnames is magnificent, a kind of pub singer mumble and apology.

oh no, Mark Lanegan gone now

Might be the place to go to watch players we actually own.
SNP and the climate emergency
at 06:24 29 Apr 2019

Now, i believe that there is a climate emergency, although one rather wishes that the people who would lead us could have come to that conclusion themselves.

However, my wife made a valid point. If the SNP pushes forward and manages to hold and win a second independence referendum, can we assume that they won't be backing their economy on the extraction and sale of north sea oil?

have both given up international football to concentrate on club football. Meanwhile loftus-cheek appears to have given up club football in order to concentrate on international football

Conifa update..............
at 07:28 9 Jun 2018

Well, for those of you remotely interested, there is now a schism in the conifa family..............

Ellan Vannin were knocked out on the final day of the group stages by a 'surprising' 8 goal swing, which included them losing 2 - 0 to barawa.

Turns out barawa's star on the day, made 1 scored 1, is a full Libyan international and was a very late call-up, so late that he shouldn't be playing in the competition.

on finding this out, the IOM lodged an appeal, as you would, conifa turned it down on spurious grounds and our lot stormed off, taking their ball with them and refusing to play their best of the worst match.

conifa have now booted the IOM out of their confederation. Splitters!

I imagine the numbers can be made up by mother Russia annexing another area of someone else's country and entering them, alongside Donetsk and south ossetia
