  • Quite frankly I don't get how Millwall's treatment has done them or Fred any good whatsoever if their aim is to get as good a price as possible for Fred. Putting him in the shop window on loan at Wycombe is surely better than one single 8 minute ca…
  • The language of some people on here! @eric_plant - The commentary on the video clip was recorded after the game. There are still some clips of him in full flow on 1170am during the game on CotN - http://chairboys.co.uk/onthenet/linc_99p.htm
  • Classic Gasroom linking balls up like the good old days! The link to start at the Lincoln game should have been... Also featuring a classic Sanchez fashion disaster (right up there with the rainsoaked flasher mac at Leicester) and classic clu…
  • It's hard not to feel sorry for Tarpey and Barnet after that complete nightmare for both. No doubt any pro club will be wary of that bad knee injury, though if Gareth can find a role for him in his preferred 4-3-3/4-5-1 then he could definitely be a…
  • @bookertease You are certainly right to say that the FA and FL could have nipped the situation in the bud, but their panel of three on their appeals panel overturned the original unanimous decision to reject uprooting Wimbledon FC to Milton Keynes…
  • @ValleyWanderer said: MKD have a huge community program and development structure, including disabled sport which can only be a good thing for both football and the local community. They could have done that if they started from scratch a…
  • @Shev We'll have to agree to disagree. Taking a stand against something patently wrong isn't 'negative' where I come from. I choose to call them 'Franchise' as their use of the 'Dons' sobriquet is a permanent reminder of the club that they destroy…
  • @Shev said: I don't get having more negative passion towards another club than positive passion towards your own, but then football is a strange animal. I am just glad Allied soldiers did not refuse to fight in WW2 because "Hitler should not …
  • @StrongestTeam said: @ReadingMarginalista said: The home of Adnams is a good 35 miles away in Southwold. Basic Suffolk real ale knowledge... Yeah but like Bury and Bolton which are basically trips to Manchester and Sun…
  • @Wendoverman They might mention our result right at the end after in-depth analysis of Buckingham Athletic's Spartan League game.
  • The home of Adnams is a good 35 miles away in Southwold. Basic Suffolk real ale knowledge...
  • Apology accepted @OakwoodExile. I probably wouldn't have noticed if you hadn't told me!
  • It doesn't matter how irritatingly cretinous Wimbledon fans get, MK Franchise's very presence in the Football League is an affront to supporters of genuine football clubs everywhere. Any attempt to legitimise their existance by dignifying them by ca…
  • We bloody well earned our place in the Football League, anyone talking us down as not being 'big enough' to stay there needs to have a word with themself.
  • POTS has to be Sido Jombati. He's had what must be his best season as a pro, and has come a long way from the somewhat scrawny lad I saw play for Bath City in 2010 where he stood out as a player of real potential, if a bit raw. He's put in some hard…
  • @YorkExile There are fragments available at https://web.archive.org/web/*/smbu.co.uk . Some of the earliest snapshots of the site appear to be lost to mists of the blackhole that eventually consumes all superannuated internet content, though the…
  • @eric_plant I'll second that Eric, beats even SMBU in its pomp.
  • As a (relatively) younger fan who was too young to remember much about Wycombe Wanderers before the 92/93 season, I'm greatly indebted to the work of a small but dedicated band of lifelong Wanderers who have put together the Chairboys Archive websit…
  • @glasshalfempty Of course I'll be there tomorrow and glad of your company as always. You at pessimistic best/worst always makes me feel like a miraculous turnaround in fortunes is around the corner. It's when your optimism levels start to rise that…
  • @peterparrotface If only podcasts were a thing when SMBU were in their pomp
  • @Malone If we weren't up shit creek financially, I think he would have gone. GA himself has admitted that he would have been sacked at pretty much any other club. I'd be surprised if the FC board weren't going back to their periodic manager succes…
  • The Harman alternative bid situation could have been avoided if the Trust board were a bit more proactive in sounding him out when they decided that they were open for offers of investment. The delay in the meeting could be entirely incidental, or …
  • @Micra I thought I'd put 'got ourselves back into the game before half-time', you're right to pull me up on my lacking proof reading and failing to give credit to our rally at the end of the half.
  • @PBo - The spirit of the late Al the Pål lives on. I believe he also did some consultancy work for Belkin a few years back when advising on what spec resistance their surge protectors should have. "How many amps Mr Pål?" https://www.overclockers.c…
  • There was very heavy traffic all the way up to Handy Cross for a long while. I parked at my mum's in Castlefield and found some passive aggressively-driven enormous idiot tanks full of blue nylon replica football shirts blocking the end of Rutland A…
  • In the first half it looked like a cup tie with a Championship side visiting a League 2 or Conference side - such was the gulf in class, speed, strength, movement, technique and attacking ambition. Fortunately we managed to get ourselves back into t…
  • On the subject of AInsworth, if he lost the rest of the games this season I still think he'd avoid the sack. Expectations were so low at the start of the season, and difficulties replacing the vital loan players from earlier in the season so great …
  • @micra said: I’m miffed. Set the alarm last night to get me up in time to listen to GA on Talksport. Tuned in 8.40 and popped bread in toaster. I’d read somewhere yesterday (I thought it was the Gasroom) that he was due to be interviewed at …
  • Stanley played the sort of football that Sunderland fans seem to imagine they were playing on Saturday. A masterclass in reeling in a team and passing them to death before hitting them on the break with precision. Even without the mistakes for their…
  • #trolololol, as the youth of today would say.
