  1. Humphrey William Dolman, known as Bill. Goalkeeper in seasons 34/35 & 35/36. Dodgy debut (although we won the game): "Dolman was left red-faced as Barnett's low centre struck his feet as he bent down to pick up the ball, which rolled between his legs and into the net"! Played in the FA Cup run to R5 in 34/35 that included our record home attendance of 43,000 .v. Portsmouth
  2. I remember playing darts and not being able to see the board after several too many of those vodkas! Deary me. This thread's gone off topic somewhat, hasn't it.
  3. A noose! Can't imagine the ABV on that one, more than the Bush I shouldn't wonder. What the heck were we thinking!
  4. Was reading today that Barnsley average more long balls per game than any other team in the division.
  5. Thanks. Is there one called Bush as well??!
  6. Still my favourite pub, I think! What's the beer with the pink elephant? That one definitely got the better of me. Sadly not but we weren't in a fit state even if there had been!
  7. "Lively"? Seeing as you and @77 punk saw virtually every single game of that first stint, I prefer the description "HEROIC" (capital letters intended), to coin a phrase initially, er, coined, by @77 punk himself!
  8. I approve of your post. Because I ****ing love Joe, too. What a bloke, what a team, what a time. I repeat. I approve of your post. Forza Joe! Forza City! Forza Meeeelano!
  9. We aspire to be a Premier League club. Look at the structure of your standard Premier League club - it will include CEO, Head of recruitment, Manager, and I dare say a Director of Football too. We're simply looking to replicate most of that and in doing so become fit for purpose, just for a change.
  10. No indeed, especially when you consider the Oval hosts Ashes test matches - a hugely high profile event in world sport, not just cricket. Gould's willingness to leave a much higher profile role, and one based in London for that matter, for Championship football in the provinces indicates one thing to me - he's been convinced of the owner's vision and determination for Premier League football. You could argue that appointing Pearson was a serious statement of intent and that persuading the CEO of Surrey CCC to come on board too only backs this up even more. If Pearson can get hol
  11. In my opinion, the world is not flat. And Pato was inconsistent (much as I liked him).
  12. Nice one - and what a sh!t team it is. Which tells us quite a lot.
  13. So long as we appoint a Head of recruitment/scouting to work alongside Pearson and leave everything else to Gould, this looks like good appointment. Although it comes as no surprise that the owner has appointed someone he already knows and is comfortable with. Still, it feels like a good appointment to me - if nothing else, this fella is in tune with the club's supporters far more than The Snake.
