Re: Ex Darlo players -unsporting behaviour?

Re: Cyrille Regis

It was my fault. I wore a new black PVC jacket to that match. Needless to say, it never went to another game... I also think - and correct me if I'm wrong - that we played that game in our home kit, instead of the blue and yellow away monstrosity, for the only time that season. I was always attached...

Re: Reece Styche

Obviously a clash player, I like how he comes back to help the defence, not many strikers will do that. Has anybody thought what would happen if Styche left as he hasn't got much of a history of staying with any of his previous clubs for long? I haven't seen a Clash player like him since Mick Jones...

Re: Salford City

I think that's kind of where I'm at Harry... Although the Chokers must have taken some pleasure in our troubles they are, at heart, what we are. A club that has bumbled along in the lower leagues representing the town for decades. My dislike for Salford hinges on the lack of humility that some of th...

Oh how I've agonised over it... On one hand there is a long history of rivalry. On the other I don't want the Salford hype to go on and they certainly don't need the money.

One of my funniest memories was of a blanket collection for the St. Johm's Ambulance that took place at Feethams in the 90s.

Re: Congratulations to Bristol Rovers

I was pleased too, and then I found myself trying to remember how they helped in our demise and why I was taking such satisfaction from them staying down. Wasn't it a complaint to the league that we were trying to sign a player as cover when we were under a transfer embargo?

The man is obviously a prick, but if we can stop the "act-now-think-later" type of tweeters from sending him abuse that would be a good thing. Anything said in anger will only convince him that his perceptions are correct.
