Don't know if anyone's aware of this (maybe @Steve_Peart), but by my reckoning, having played on Tuesday night, JJ moved into the top 20 WWFC first team appearance makers with 377 appearances. That's 20th out of 1,560 players to make at least one first team appearance. Five more and he'll overtake Mark West.
That's a fantastic achievement. Well done JJ!
Testimonial season next year isn’t it?
Absolute legend! Another that needs a statue.
Testimonial yes. Statue ridiculous. There is no statue of Martin O'Neill at Adams Park
If there was a memorial to JJ, it would be..shit his pants at Hillsborough
Get in the queue! My statue of this moment is first.
Hopefully this was one of your utterly addled evening posts rather than acually meaning to disrespect one of our all time top players.
Are you having another one of your episodes?
We need to do an Ainsworth statue first. I suggest buying The Angel of the North and dragging it down south, draping a gigantic cheap leather motorcycle jacket over it and calling it The Jesus of the South.
Or we could use this as a template with Ainsworth and O'Neill sitting under Bluey with four Wycombe legends at the base.
Totally disrespectful and surely can’t be a Wycombe supporter really. However, there does seem to be a pattern regarding the timing of his episodes.
The only statue I want to see is the Jason Cousins triptych.
What a work of art that would be.
I don't have appearance stats bang up to date, the official Media team are usually hot on this.
Jason Cousins over the fence should be on the banner that replaces Wild Thing.
To us old'uns, Noel Ashford is "God, Dave Carroll is "Jesus", Martin is "St. Martin". Gareth will have to settle for being a Saint, although St. Gareth does really sound right.
I meant to say St. Gareth does not sound right, but it could never be the Unbeliever, has to be the Believer!
St Gareth the Believer - patron saint of tight purses.
Might have to look for a high-res image of that. Absolute scenes!
@our_frank That picture of Sanchez's rant at the lino, the rain-spattered coat and everything it stands for in the context of that day, is just magnificent. Especially with Gupps being the player in the background...
Fair. It was that game when I just thought he was past it. He has been brilliant and still has a role to play (hopefully scoring a winning corner at Wembley). But we need to look for a replacement imho
John Motson in that coat on the Adams Park pitch with the snow belting down.
Posted it before, but this is art....
In oil, in water colour, in bronze, in marble. This is football, this is our club, this is sport.
Let's get it done. A tenner from everyone on the gasroom will cover it
@TheAndyGrahamFanClub Yes, yes, yes... That there manager of ours.... Just in case anyone ever wondered what this club means to him...!! I can't imagine there is any sane fan who has any doubt, mind.
I still remember on 'Torquay Day' when we found out we'd survived, a few seconds before our final whistle went... 3-0 up, survival achieved, Blooms did a controlled skip and air punch, whilst continuing to the last second, to close his man down.
Lol, good memory @LeedsBlue it had an element of the David Pleat about it but he just couldn’t control himself from celebrating whilst simultaneously not allowing himself to shirk his defensive duties.
What I should have said is that Gasman is usually hot on this!
Scroll down for the top five.
It would be amazing if he followed up being the first man to captain us into the second tier by being the second manager to get us there!
And I’d be able to point to that and say I was there.
Unreal noise that someone described as a "guttural roar".
Despite it being a million years into everyone having mobiles, seemingly everyone was awaiting one guy in the middle of the crowd giving the goahead too.
