    Derby County - Financial Problems

    It’s offered to Derby in order to avoid the cost of further hearings and no appeal etc. A kind of out of court settlement. I’m casting my mind back to Sheffield Wednesday’s case last season, when their points deduction was halved, on appeal. I’m guessing that the 3 suspended points is a carrot...

    Weird Things that have happened this week in football?

    Ah, so that’s why Warburton lost the plot.

    NEWS COVID-19 Ground Entry Requirements

    Haha, yes. it wasn’t my intention to understate the consequences of the Covid pandemic, but we can only go far in the prevention of the spread of it. In my opinion, employing (and delegating the checks to) stewards is a waste of money and time. To me, it’s merely paying lip service to it. It’s...

    NEWS COVID-19 Ground Entry Requirements

    I don’t get why the chemist insists on a mask still, but Marks and Spencer doesn’t. You don’t need any proof of vaccs on the bus going to Brentford, but you do need it to get in! What’s going on?

    NEWS COVID-19 Ground Entry Requirements

    A long, long time ago, when we were in the EU, we had a big issue with having to have Identity cards like they have on the continent. They have seamless borders and can pass fr

    NEWS COVID-19 Ground Entry Requirements

    I predict a riot! Well, maybe not, but it looks like checking verification for everyone is going to prove to be impractical, and a quick flash of your pass is, dare I say it, meaningless. We had enough trouble getting people into the BCS for the league cup game without all this.

    Best Grounds

    Yes, I went to Layer Road once. The only thing that stopped you falling backwards onto the main road was the sheets of corrugated iron (used for roofing on your garden shed), hung vertically to make a wall. I think they’ve got a new ground now. I hope we never go there.

    General Last Day of Transfer Window Documented

    Yes! I gave up in the end. What’s that story, about the goose that laid the golden egg?

    Hungary v England World Cup Qualifier

    Whilst we’re at it with colours, where were our navy blue shorts in Euro 2020? Was this part of the ‘one colour’ football strip regime so beloved by Uefa and fifa? We looked like Leeds in all-white. Not a good look!

    GONE Halil Dervisoglu

    The Turkish Lira isn’t the strongest currency in the world. Their gate money is in Lira. I rest my case.

    General Transfer Rumours (Summer 2021)

    A year ago I thought we got a good deal from Aston Villa for Ollie. Now, it looks pretty average. Every player seems to be valued in terms of millions. Meanwhile, we have to endure several minutes of adverts throughout Sky’s programmes whilst paying a fortune to them for their channels. That’s...

    Final Score Aston Villa 1 Brentford 1 (Toney)

    You’ve made a good point there. Do you remember the penalty we were awarded against Wycombe last year, when Sergei Canos nicked the ball from the Wycombe bloke at the last second, and the Wycombe bloke caught Sergei instead of the ball. They were both moving away from the goal at the time! It...

    Parking ST for BCS - Lionel Primary School

    Yes, that’s what I do. I live about 20 miles away and it would involve 3 changes by train, so I park up in the Carlisle Road area at the moment, and walk the rest. Sometimes I have a pint in the Lord Nelson. I’m half expecting parking restrictions to be introduced here too, on match days...
