Foul on Nicky Shorey at Man City in the last minute of our second relegation season match. Goal given, lost one nil.

On the positive side that ghost goal at home to Rochdale in 1975.

Make the players wear suits with a flower in their lapels on Cup Final day. Which must be a Saturday at 3pm. The players go out onto the hallowed turf at 1 pm, in their suits and get all nervous. No iPods/ headphones allowed.

Re: 2019/20 Season - How will it end?

I am a traditionalist, but the League Cup is a joke, not worth it. The premiership sides certainly do not take it seriously.

Same goes for the FA Cup tbh tbf. Unfortunately. Early rounds are good.

Re: The Bundesliga Hobnob battle thread 19/20

There is a problem with the chart, the path led me to Kaiserslautern , who are local to me, so great. But they are third division at the moment.

See also Frankfurt not being available as a choice, whereas they are Bundesliga

Re: Best XI in your lifetime. (Excluding the 106 team)

Difficult because obvs I’m gonna say Robin Friday, but he was basically a fourth division player. Whereas Le Fondre scored quite a few for us in the Premiership. Senior and Friday up front. Senior was not “that good”, he just could not help scoring. Similarly I’d be tempted to put Steve Death above ...

We used to just call them “the seats”.

I guess it was the North Stand, as it was opposite the South Bank.

“ Norfolk Road stand”?

The Royal Forester Sorry, but I can take being born (I was born at home, during WW 2) the nearest to the Mad. Stad. away from you. According to Google Maps, my former house in Greenfields Road is .4 of a mile closer.

Hang on, were you born at home as I was, or in a hospital?

Dad took me to EP in 1969, aged 8, v Port Vale or Mansfield (I think I saw both that season). Have followed the...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Did people catch the quiet comment that the Govt is going to publish a weekly number of people dying of Covid-19 OUTSIDE hospitals? It's not clear whether those deaths (Old people's homes etc) are included in the figures. I’ve just been asking about this on AE. It seems deaths are measured against ...
