I remember drawing these a few season's back, when it had a certain novelty value.... Rodney Parade, a new ground, and we hadn't played them for years..... we took a few and won quite easily... now they do the double over us  Sad

C'mon Reg, you used to be all about the cricket season in July...

Indeed... but something very strange is happening in cricket.  The county championship has been shunted to either end of the season, no Tests in June July.  So we've had this glorious weather and hardly any cricket played except a few one dayers.  Even then England played a sub standard Aussie side and thrashed them.... when we could have been playing an excellent Indian side.

There has been quite a lot of women's stuff on Sky, which whilst OK in small doses, doesn't satisfy.  Cheltenham Festival starts on Monday, which may well be worth a visit, but throw in the distraction of the WC, and I haven't been able to lose my football head, as should rightfully happen.

Not entirely down to them, but fucking West Ham and that stadium again.... So after pissing all our money up the wall to find a sponsor West Ham then get a cut above a certain level.... They really are the peoples club, in that we are all funding them!

Update:  It's the Chelski kids again, apparently.  Which means they'll get a crowd for one game.

Religion and football isn't a great mix.... think of Peter Knowles.

Calm down Gary, sore subject?  Usually quite like him but he's come across as a bit of a prat here.

I think it's been blown out of proportion a bit, as I think some of it (particularly from the Accy chairman) was a bit tongue in cheek.

He has a point though, it's annoying to see these small clubs get lucky, bankrolled and ultimately overtake us. Wish it was us, though. I'd happily take the class of 92's money!

There will come a point when they start making huge losses (unless the fanbase grows dramatically or they really do shoot through the leagues) and I imagine the funding will start to be withdrawn a little.

I'm with Gary Neville. And unless the Acrington chairman is running break even he should shut the fuck up.

the amount of money spent is only an issue when it's not you spending it.

it is what it is. An unsustainable and unbalanced mess that won't change, because the 'haves' have all the power and the money.

That's one hell of a journey to have to make on a regular basis!  Doesn't sound as if they'll get their long-awaited new home for a couple of years, at least.
