Roy of the Rovers
at 13:39 15 Jan 2021

In the top picture he looks exactly like Billy Beaney did in his playing days in the 70s:

I must admit I was never a reader of the Tiger so didn't take much notice of Roy of the Rovers back then. My comic of choice as a boy was the Victor and my favourite character in it, Alf Tupper.

There must be quite a few other posters on here old enough to remember the anticipation of the day their weekly comics were delivered, which, as I recall was Wednesday. In most of them, there was usually a sports story and a Second World War one. They declined in the 80s and the internet finished them off.

I don't think you even hear football commentators saying, "It's a real Roy of the Rovers story" much any more.

I still remember the excitement of everyone who'd played football with him as a boy when Billy made his Saints debut. Nobody loved Saints more than Billy. A real Roy of the Rovers story.

Trump has incited his supporters to storm the Capitol to stop Biden being declared president. There are thousands of them and some have already broken into the building. There are reports of gunshots and bombs.

Grealish unsteady on his feet again
at 11:25 15 Dec 2020

"Jack Grealish stunk of alcohol and was slurring his words after he crashed his Range Rover, a witness said. The court also heard that the England and Aston Villa footballer was unsteady on his feet and was wearing mis-matching slippers."

I really wonder if he is going to follow in the footsteps of Gascoigne?

I was at St Mary's to watch an FA Youth Cup match. The result?

Southampton 7 Portsmouth 0

The last time I'd seen that same scoreline, it involved our first teams and was at Fratton Park in May, 1972.
