Re: play-off run in

It's not the despair, Laura. I can take the despair. It's the hope I can't stand.

Re: Give Us A (Stratfield) Brake

In as far as I could hear the discussion it was argued that (a) it would be easier to enforce covenants if it were a lease not freehold and (b) there was an argument that it protected the club from a separation of the club and the ground owner. It caused a lengthy and slightly worrying delay while t...

Re: Going down?

On Jan 1st, there was a thread about us having blown the playoffs and I posted this (I don't know if the html works to make it look like a quote): So you think we're safe from a relegation battle? Do you have any confidence in our strengthening in the January window or in Robinson improving our perf...

Re: All over bar the shouting

So you think we're safe from a relegation battle? Do you have any confidence in our strengthening in the January window or in Robinson improving our performances?

One advantage of being a pessimist is that you're rarely confronted with nasty shocks! Happy New Year all.

Re: Tumbleweed

Thank you - as an exile who rarely gets to matches now (this may change from October as my ancientness has employment consequences) and is somewhat remote from the local news and rumours, these are the precisely the sorts of issues I'd love to see debated, along with the differing views on games, to...

Tumbleweed

Other than a couple of "where are they now" posts by Slappy, nothing for ten days. Have people gone elsewhere? Just using "the other place" now it's slightly more civilised? Do forums just run out of energy like a dying sun that's burnt off all its fuel (I'm sure that's not quite...

Re: Fixtures

I was wondering when, if ever, we've been scheduled to start the league season in July? I've always rather resented it starting in August given sports clashes ... Couldn't find a relevant ad hoc query on the RageOn stats pages, can't find my Complete Record and haven't the energy to go through seaso...

Re: New York, New York it's a helluva boot.

So (1) Oxford (false dawn); (2) Sunderland; (3) Sunderland and Plymouth; (4) Sunderland; (5) Oxford, TB 10. The differently proportioned person identifying as female has cleared their throat and warbled.

AColi and Geoff nul points
Radley one point
GPTom four points (and closest on the undeeded TB).

New York, New York it's a helluva boot.

Me again? Achhh Clotho and her sisters are spinning the fate of Wednesday, Plymouth, Wycombe, Sunderland and Oxford. Pick a side for each question, one point if correct (it's possible that there'll be more than one correct answer). You may (but are not obliged to) play one joker: if correct three po...
