  • Bond. Darren Bond?

    Not sure it would have had the same cultural impact

  • Gavin Ward and Darren England on the other matches featuring our friends from down the M40

  • Two Championship refs, phew. Their last games were both biggies as well: Leeds - Fulham and West Brom - Birmingham.

  • Three questions for you cognoscenti. Who was the player in red administering the subtle nudge with his elbow and what match was it? Secondly, what was the game with Elbow Abd trying to get Bayo’s attention?
    Where is he now ?

  • edited June 30

    That's Aleksandar Mitrović for Fulham (I'm told by a Leeds supporter that the incident was away from play, so I'll let the ref off).

  • I don't remember El-Abd elbowing anyone for us - or was this against us before he joined? His only red card for Wycombe was for hair-pulling at Barnsley. And in answer to your other question, he's just been released by Stevenage.

    What a strange move that turned out.
    Captain of a promoted team and still into league 1.
    Then suddenly dropped and shunted off to the team nearly bottom of league 2 - gets injured, but can barely get near the action at all even when not.

    Odd. Shows you have to enjoy the highs!

  • he obviously upset GA and was ruthlessly disposed of to our Burker King sponsored friends from Hertfordshire.

    Mmm. Maybe a massive stunt around the QE2 bridge but it doesn't quite work. Casino Royale or Sugar Hut?

  • 'Cajun burger please. Bacon, no curd.'

  • The photo with el-Abd and Bayo is from the checkatrade game against Stevenage back in October.

    Mitrovic incident was only away from play in the sense that he was so late the ball had travelled down the other end of the pitch. You can still see the ball in the clip, so it's not really an excuse for the ref or lino to miss it! A deserved 3 game ban.

  • A View to a Hill?

  • From Hillbottom with Love

  • The Living Downleys

  • Mousinho Royale?

  • The Living Bayolights

  • He has a powerful weapon
    His deadly magic left foot
    A left-back that's second to none
    It's Joey Jacobson

    Lurking on the edge of the area
    Or crouched by the penalty spot
    From the left corner, or even the right
    It's Joey Jacobson

    Love is required, whenever he's hired
    It comes just before the kill
    No one can catch him, no keeper can match him
    For his unrivalled left peg skill

    One golden shot means another poor victim
    Has come to a glittering end
    For Wycombe, he'll score against anyone
    It's Joey Jacobson

    His eye may be on Oxford or Pompey
    Who will he bang?
    We shall see, oh yeah!

    One golden shot means another poor victim
    Has come to a glittering end
    If you want to get rid of a team
    It's Joey Jacobson

    We'll get it done
    He'll shoot anyone
    It's Joey Jaaaaaacoooobsooon!

  • 'Gasroom sings in second goal in League One Play-off semi'

  • Does anyone have the running tally of JJ corners which either went in, were tapped in from an inch out, or hit the post/required a save? This is getting ridiculous!

    Tough to hear commentators like Benjamin Broom saying that JJ "couldn't have meant it to go in."

    Do your research!

    At Pompey, it was so windy he almost managed to score directly from an out-swinger.

    The day you worry about what a guy called "Benjamin Broom" says is the day to pack it all in.

  • you're just trying to sweep it under the carpet

  • He'll bristle at such a suggestion

  • It is entirely possible, and to my mind probable, that Joe Jacobson is the greatest corner taker in the history of the universe.
