The Genius Press - MOTD
at 10:53 24 Jan 2021

I know it sounds a bit Branfootish, but the press worked so well yesterday that I actually wondered if we should be going route 1 from the back and deliberately giving the ball to the Arsenal goalie. We looked capable of scoring every time he had the ball at his feet.

Not sure about the Shrewsbury game but the club didn't run a coach to Port Vale later in the season (and I recall the club admitting this was a bad error of judgement). It can't be understated how divided the club and the fans were at the time.

It was a new ground for me so I went. We were so dire at the time I'm not sure if the 2-0 defeat was actually a shock. The attendance for the game at The Dell for the first leg was only a little over 5,000 and was actually lower than the gate at Gay Meadow for the second leg.

The 'Denmark' design was ok close up but from a distance it did, as you say, look like the result of a washing disaster. That said, at least it did have stripes (albeit barely visible to the naked eye) and it was still 20 times better than the Patrick centenary kit that it replaced which was flimsy and horrible and looked nothing like any kit Saints had ever worn in its history (and on the shirt I bought, two of the letters in the sponsor's name fell off leaving just 'RAPE TOOLS'). Best thing about our Denmark shirt was the lovely velvety material. Looking through all my old shirts today I do think it remains the nicest to wear. As someone who grew up with the coarse, nipple grater material of the 1970s this was pure luxury.

I preferred the classic 1973-1981 vertical stripe.

According to my 'Roy of the Rovers - the Playing Years', Geoff Giles' transfer from Melchester Rovers to Melborough in 1981 broke a long tradition of no transfers between the rival clubs. He was replaced by 35 year old Nat 'Grandad' Gosden. I bet the Melchester message boards would have gone into meltdown if they'd existed back then and the whole thing wasn't just a figment of someone's imagination.

When I was a nipper I got Scorcher which was (I think) just about football. It merged with Tiger at some point and, as well as Roy of the Rovers, it also featured other sports such as wrestling (Johnny Cougar), F1 (Skid Solo) and even fishing (Rod and Line). Hot Shot Hamish was my favourite Scorcher character. He played for a struggling Scottish Div 2 club called Princess Park who had quite a big stadium which was invariably full. I was quite disappointed when I eventually discovered that most Scottish lower division clubs only get about 150 watching their matches at grounds that wouldn't look out of place in the Wessex League. Billy's Boots was good. Billy's antiquated old football boots had magical powers, but every storyline seemed to involve his boots being lost or stolen. If I had magical boots I'd definitely take more care of them.

Whos going to Clap tonight?
at 15:41 7 Jan 2021

I've missed the clap. I used to get my trainers on and run round the close at about two minutes to eight and milk the applause like Steve Ovett. I didn't like the bell thing last week as it meant I had to go round twice.

What a shame our old friend Dune isn't allowed on here anymore to give his views on his hero's antics. Actually, maybe Dune was the one with the horns who led the storming of the Capitol building. He looked the type who might live in a lorry.

The majority of fans are idiots. The clamour for Salisu to play was a great example. Some people genuinely wanted a bloke who no-one has ever seen play, and who hasn't played a game of any sort in I don't know how long, selected ahead of an experienced player with close on 100 Premier League appearances. Muppets.

Last night I kept getting pop-ups saying 'Local MILF 3m away wants to have sex with you now!'. I assumed the 'm' meant metres and not miles so I knew it was fake as the wife hasn't been interested in that sort of thing in a long time. Although the photo was a very good likeness.

3rd January Who Went To These Games
at 17:44 3 Jan 2021

Was at all pf them except Dagenham. As others have said, the Chelsea match was pretty hairy, which is ironic since Chelsea brought thousands of skinheads. The 1988 Pompey match was a very dark day. We were terrible and looked totally disinterested. At the time I thought Chris Nicholl should've been sacked after that performance. We went to Old Trafford the following Saturday and won 2-0. Summed up Nicholl's reign.

Le Tiss has been banging on for ages about faulty tests giving false positive results, although I cant think of any examples personally.

Why are these pundits allowed to travel from tier to tier to attend games? If the manager can watch a game from home I'm pretty sure Hargreaves, Jenas et al can as well.

I was there and seem to recall some sort of NASL-style shootout at the end where players dribbled from 35 yards out and had 5 seconds to get a shot away. I'm sure I remember Channon making a right pig's ear of his.

I wish I could have an in-depth discussion about football with my wife. As it is, we never get past the usual "so is 'offside' when the ball gets kicked into the crowd?". To be fair to her though, she tries to explain the rules but I just can't get the hang of it.
