Harry's Heroes

Apologies if there has already been a thread on this, but I've not been on here for a while.

Have just finished watching the 3rd and final episode of the 2nd series and wondered what others thought of it.

Quite good from a Saints perspective (love em or hate em) - Redknapp, Le Tiss, Ruddock, Wright and cameos from Beasant and Phillips.

Without spoiling anything for people who want to, but haven't watched it yet, I personally didn't enjoy it as much as the first Series, apart from the actual games. There was too much emphasis on the one idiot in the group, players initially showing potential but then having to leave, too many injuries and too much emphasis on the culture of the places they visited, rather than the training and the actual football.

It was great to see Le Tiss introducing Merson (after all his troubles) to golf, but unfortunately he is no longer the goalkeeper he once was in that Testimonial at the Dell !!

19/20 Season Saints Kit Going Cheap
at 12:48 15 May 2020

Got an email from the club today, stating that all kit from the 19/20 season is going for half price.

Tempted to get a shirt with Covid and the number 19 on it, just for a little keepsake and reminder from this season !!
May The Fourth Be With You

So as it is Star Wars day today, is anyone 'celebrating' in any way ?

Apparently you can just about watch all 11 films in one day, if you miss out the masses of credits at the end of each film.

I am planning to watch The Rise of Skywalker tonight, but may whizz through a couple of others before hand, whilst the missus is out for her run.

Will also give The Mandalorian a go, now that all 8 episodes are available from the first series. What are people's opinions on this ? A few mates really love it and another said it was like the makers were asking each other what they should do with all the old Star Wars sets, creatures and vehicles - and decided to create a lower budget spin off. I'll reserve judgement.
Basingstoke Pubs
at 12:40 1 May 2020

After the mention of certain Basingstoke pubs in the Will Smallbone thread, I decided to do a separate piece on them !!

Having previously lived and worked in Basingstoke for a few years, I'd like to think that I visited a few in my time, but I also went on a 'ShitPubCrawl' in Basingstoke, as part of a mate's stag celebrations. This was basically a little tour around the outskirts of the town centre, visiting the shall we say, less popular drinking establishments.

The Queens - by the station, popular for pre and post game meet ups
Great Western - round the back of the station
Bass House - in town, but now Tesco
Hare and Hounds - near the Tech college (once painted pink !!)
New Inn - virtually next door to the Hare and Hounds
King of Wessex
The Wheatsheaf - think it changed to Winton
The Bounty - near the cricket club
The Lamb - 5 mins from the Bounty
White Hart - opposite the old? police station
We were going to visit the Riverdene pub Skewers but ran out of time

Roughest - Probably the 9 Saxons. Only went there once with a guy I used to play football with, who lived close by. For fighting, never went there, but the Pen and Parchment in Popley was dubbed the Pen and Punch Up. The Barbican in Popley was also an absolute shithole. Lived in Chineham so went to a recommended Chinese takeaway next to the pub and popped in for a swift half whilst I waited - never again. Think this has been flattened now as last time I drove close to there, a new place had been built.

There are some nice ones as well. My in town favourite was The George at the top of town and the Chineham Arms was decent enough as a temporary local.

Vote For Man United v Saints
at 14:39 23 Apr 2020

Football Focus currently have a vote open to decide which game they show the highlights of, this coming Saturday.

The 2 options available are:

1999 - Man Utd 3 -3 Saints
2004 - Spurs 4 - 5 Arsenal

Vote for Saints on the BBC Football website and get the chance to see a brilliant Pahars opener and 2 differing finishes from Le Tiss - 1 quality and the other a 25 yard back pass that somehow squirms under Taibi (remember him ?)
Hair Cuts
at 15:15 21 Apr 2020

As all the barbers are all currently closed, what is everyone on here doing for hair cuts during the lockdown ?

I know some of us will be follically challenged and not require the services of a barber, or likewise have hair styles that can be cut / clippered / shaved at home.

I got the clippers out and with a little help from the missus, managed a Grade 1 back and sides and a Grade 6 on top. Looks quite good considering I used to use the clippers for an all over same grade cut. No aspirations to become a barber though !!

You can take the boy out of Portsmouth...
at 15:41 17 Mar 2020

But you can't take Portsmouth out of the boy.

What a thick, utterly stupid CVNT that Mason Mount really is.

His team mate has Corona Virus and he has been told to self isolate for a week, so what does he do ?

Goes and has a kick around with Declan Rice !!

Hopefully Chelsea and the FA will severely reprimand him, fine him and ban him.
