That makes no sense

Almost every reading fc official tweet that uses those stupid blue numbers don't come up correctly on my phone.
The Baldock one said
1 goals
2 promotions
1 Baldock
On my phone so I get why he had an issue.


What phones do you guys have? Nokia 3310's?

That makes no sense


20.00 = 8pm
22.00 = 10pm

He obvs assumed that the time was @ 22.00 - when infact it was @ 20.00

well, thats the way I read it..

I thought it was the little blue numbers in the tweet? Sometimes those numbers don't show up for me so I assumed the tweet read for him "in 2 hours"

But I may also be wrong.

Someone go ask him to clarify.

No I get that part, I just don’t know why you would be able to see the 2 but not the 4 on your phone

See above link. I can't get the photo to post here for some reason.

I constantly am missing numbers in reading fc official tweets like above.

I'm also experiencing this issue on my Android but not on my work iPhone.

Can someone put Russel Kempson out of his misery? Is there a single person that enjoys reading his miserable downbeat columns?

At least Courtney Friday seems to be more upbeat about the season ahead than Mr. Kempson does.

Remember googling Russell Kempson once. Other than looking like that neighbour you'd never let your kids near he is universally derived by any other football team he has written about, just a c*nt.

And, why does Russel Kempson's headline always start with Why? Is it a question, if so a question mark is missing or is there supposed to be an answer in the article, which there never is?

Since CF has said he's got a new job, his tweets seem to be fairly decent. No snide comments about the club, just tweets like a fan would but with more links to pieces from the Chron.

Gotta agree with the thoughts on Russell Kempson, anyone who makes an article suggesting that the home team in a league where anyone can beat anyone can only hope for a draw is a massive twat.

Yep I also hate that

Maybe his next one should be 'Why am I such a miserable boring old tw@t?'
