    Football teams not named after where they play

    It’s the old river boundary thing again. In Bristol the Avon traditionally divided that part of south Bristol in Somerset from the majority of the city in Gloucestershire. In Nottingham the Trent divided the city of Nottingham from the outlying suburbs in the wider Nottinghamshire. In the old days you’d have rushed over the bridge from West Bridgford to Nottingham to get an extra half hours drinking time.

    Leeds Emergency Press Conference 5pm

    I find myself totally ambivalent to this. There are many more important issues regarding the state of modern football to feel righteous indignation about than watching the odd training session of opponents.

    Crystal Palce don’t play in the area of London known as Crystal Palace. Grimsby play in Cleethorpes.

    Next 6 games.

    No it doesn’t. It just confirms it. 57 points to play for. Darn it! We’ll fall 2 points short of a 100.

    Warnock

    Very apt.

    Forest Away - NO POTD

    If you’re going by car park in Trent Bridge cricket ground. It’s only a 5 minute walk to the City Ground, and an even shorter walk (albeit away from the City Ground) to the best pub in the area, the Stratford Haven. Friendly Castle Rock local beer pub with plenty of guest ales and superb food, and mix of clientele. Out of Trent Brudge turn left and walk up to the crossing. Cross over, pass a restaurant/bar and you will see the Stratford Haven down the side street to your right.

    Forest

    The red cards may hurt them but I wouldn’t get carried away by their failure to get what should have been a ‘nailed on’ result at Reading. We should have been ‘nailed on’ there too, but, oh yeah.

    Tannoy

    The public address system was poor yesterday, but in all honesty how many football grounds have you been to where you have praised their system. To provide a public address system that is clear at all times in all parts of the ground is notoriously difficult to achieve.

    John Atyeo testimonial ticket

    Great find. Does anyone know why Leeds?

    Bolton (FA Cup) Tickets - 7:45 Kick-Off, Friday 25th January

    Another bloody Friday night game! I know a lot of people like them, but personally I dislike night games. I’d have sooner played on the Sunday, not the least because I have a ticket to see Skid Row at the O2 academy on the Friday. I am doomed not to see them it seems. First they cancelled the gig last year, then I was ill on the rearranged date and now a bloody rugby game gets in the way. Proper fed up.

    Dirty Leeds !

    I suspect so too. I dislike Leeds with a passion but, other than possibly trespass, there is no offence here other than a moral affront to fair play in football. Or to refer to another sport ‘it’s not cricket old boy!’

    Southend United

    No doubt yet another ineffectual winding up order from HMRC. I sometimes wonder why they bother as you know they will come an accommodation to reschedule payments.

    more (and more) Bolton troubles

    I’m not sure that a court challenge would succeed. The civil courts have historically been reluctant to involve themselves in football, being content to let the sports authorities regulate themselves. I wonder what the arguments would be. Being barred from owning a football club could hardly be described as a restraint of trade.

    Bolton (FA Cup) Tickets - 7:45 Kick-Off, Friday 25th January

    Football should be played at 3pm on a Saturday and occasionally at 7.45 on a Tuesday night end of.

    Bolton (FA Cup) Tickets - 7:45 Kick-Off, Friday 25th January

    So it’s another pointless cup game in a sport that has more cups than a tea shop. Sod the yanks! Who’s watching rugby on a Saturday morning in the US. The FA Cup is THE premier cup competition in the world and should take precedence. The Bears seem to have precedence over Saturday afternoon fixtures and that needs to be reversed.
