Re: On this day

8 October1994 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XBrm7iRlkUU I could watch Simon Osborn's volley forever. Brilliant goal by a brilliant player. I was oop north in Blackpool that weekend for a stag-do, but took some time out to see Burnley v Bolton at Turf Moor. Remember thinking how good Bolton were. ...

Re: League Cup 2nd round draw

Fond memories of a 2nd round 2-2 draw at Vicarage Road in September 92. One of the first signs that Mark McGhee was beginning to put together something special. Jimmy Quinn and Adie Williams notched IIRC. A biblical downpour flooded the away end and I was sodden by the time I got back to the car par...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sweden (n) sponsored by Pippy Longstocking

Watched the game at the Three Lions in Milwaukee and a local Fox 6 News team were there throughout. Brilliant day mixing it with ex-pats from Blackburn, Manchester, Rochdale, Stockport, Bromley, Birmingham and all over. Bar was at its three hundred capacity an hour before kick off. The cameraman (or...

Re: World Cup 2018

My fourteenth World Cup and the best ever. 1970? Yep. 2014? Yep; but this World Cup has been a sheer delight and we have not yet got to the QFs. Two breathtaking games today and the shock was there were no shocks - eventually.

If Belgium play with a back three vs Brazil they will get destroyed.

Re: World Cup 2018

2-0. Game over. A wonderful finish by Falcao. I said before the start of the World Cup that the team I would like to avoid in the last 16 was Colombia.

Re: World Cup 2018

Loved the Colombia fans going totally hatstand. Superb goal and James, Cuadrado and Quintero are totally bossing it. What a lovely player James is.

Re: Ingerlund Vs Tunisia

Deserved win after missing a shed load in the first half. Really positive subs by Southgate a contributing factor. Please, please drop Young for Rose for the Panama game. Nothing wide left today.
