Re: Brackley away 14/9/21

8-) I hate to gloat but I have to say I'm gloating like mad (about another, partially, spot on prediction). I'd say the rest of the league will have noticed, not just because it was the only result to look at last night, but because it was such a good one. Regarding the sending off, it's well known ...

Re: Brackley away 14/9/21

:idea: One - nil to Darlo and Nelson will score, Why not? There's a history of Quakers unlikely away wins when we're struggling; York a couple of seasons ago, Swindon in the cup - I saw us prevail at Port Vale once after we'd been dull at Hull and a second half stinkeroo at home to Crewe. I enjoyed ...

A step forward but someone needs to tell the squad we’re not playing off a two goal handicap. LOL but at least the second half come back got us somewhere this time.

Re: "Biggest FA Cup shock of all time"

The daft back heel was Ron Harbertson - if we'd won there it would be in the history books. Jimmy Greaves played then but not in the replay when he was in their party. He gives a good account of the game in his auto-biography. My Father' Uncle and most of the town got the day off and the pathe news ...

Re: PC Tommy Wright

I posted some unkind comments about Tommy at the time but I still feel he was a bad manager and a rehabilitation wouldn't wash. Games when we were 2-0 up and ran out of steam before losing - players not training effectively - daft substitutions. Difficult for him to follow Gray but if we're going to...

Re: 25 years next week since Wembley 1996

I was late in thanks to Wembley's lousy stewarding and the first thing I saw was Matty running at their defence - he was so good and it must have been a just few inches wide. I think Painter went close with a header later on but their goal was well worked, Ronnie Mauge was fit as a fiddle after trai...

Re: Notts County away

As Notts are my second - by a long way- team I'd say Quakers would have had their chances. They can score notable goals but their back line isn't great. This was my fantasy final and it could have been a good one. :think: :x :(
