  1. :laugh: I’d forgotten so many of those! Carl Shutt was another (apologies if he’s already been mentioned and I missed it) - from my time in the East End all those years ago - we sometimes replaced a letter in his surname when he was having a bad game!!!!
  2. I’m a bit bored during the international break so I thought I’d share some names which amuse me: Danny Shittu (bet he took some stick at school) Kaka (means poo in French) Max Power Danny Invincible (played for Swindon in the 90s) ...... and my all time favourite; Naughty Naughty (I heard Jeff Stelling mention him one day on SSN and had to google him once I stopped laughing - he had just received a red card!!!!! (Spelt Nortei Nortey) http://www.doverathletic.com/player/nortei-nortey/
  3. Great for Fammys confidence that Mane didn’t take it - then even better that he scored. Great confidence boost - well done Fammy
  4. The impact our injuries have had on our campaign this season so far should act as a warning. I think we have been fortunate to be in the league position we are currently after losing Afobe - in a league where any of the top 10 teams could be right up there after one game. The Prem is merciless and we simply wouldn’t be able to cope with injuries with the current squad. We almost need 2 first team quality squads to be able to survive up there. I really thought with our summer dealings that we had a realistic chance of making top 2 - then the injury curse came along and wiped out arguably our most influential players. Of course, there is a lot of season still left to be played and another transfer window, so anything can still happen, but to respond to the OP; not without significant investment in the squad - and I don’t mean that the current first team are crap before anyone accuses me - I mean we would need to be able to cover injuries and bans better than we currently can to have a realistic chance of staying up, if we did get there.
  5. I had a Sandersons one which I was given by my colleagues when I left Somerfield. I still have it - although I don't keep it in the car!!!!
  6. I personally like contactless as a concept and use it almost all the time. No hassle with pockets full of change to drop all over the floor, or needing an ATM that's miles away - and for the retailers no need to keep loads of change on premis. It's particularly useful in London when using the underground as it works the same as Oysters and better than buying a zoned ticket because you only pay for what you use. I don't care if the bank (or the wife) knows when I've popped down the local for a couple of pints, or put £30 worth of fuel in my car. It also makes tax avoidance difficult so I'm surprised that the government isn't coming up with incentives to encourage more retailers to adopt it (they may have to be fair - I'm not a retailer so I don't know). I'm a bit suspicious of outlets that only deal in cash - but that's me! Anyway, it works for me - until there's a power cut of course - but the electronic cash registers would also fail so no difference - we'd all go without!!!!! I can see cash being phased out within the next 20 years - maybe sooner.
  7. I haven’t been to Griffin Park since the Joe Jordan days - is there still a pub at each corner of the ground? i May pop up to this one........
  8. Didn’t Norwich get him on a free? if so then there IS hope for us.......
  9. Anyone know if we can recall Taylor? Could give us another option with Afobe now gone.......
  10. I read this thread for the first time today and thought ‘fk it - not another injury....’ then I looked at the date........ idiot!!
  11. I’m not going, but if I was I’d have no problem joining in the clapping. 1 minute of tiny effort to assist with someone’s grieving - and to underline the camaraderie amongst the football community too. Thumbs up from me.
  12. Apologies if this has already been done to death on another post and the decision has been made so a moot point, but I wanted to be sure I got this right...... and it’s been debated on various forums and on Quest on Saturday......... Assombalonga was definitely in an offside position when the ball was kicked forward to him by a Boro player. If Moore had left the ball and BA touched it, BA would have been given offside and that would have been the end of it. However, he (Moore) headed the ball (albeit not where he intended to) and played BA back onside, hence no offside and the goal was given. The area for debate for me is the interpretation of the ‘interfering with play’ label. Was BA interfering with play whilst making his original run? Did Moore only try and cut the ball out because he know BA was there ready to receive? Boro certainly intended the ball to get to him (BA) and the ball was headed towards him, so Moore reacted to that move - thus BA most certainly WAS interfering with play and should have been given offside. I’ve tried to be unbiased but that is my considered opinion - or did Moore’s touch invalidate any ‘interfering with play’ situation? I don’t think it should, because you see it time and time on the goal line where a player is offside when a shot is blocked and the follow-up tap-in ‘goal’ disallowed for offside as the offside player was deemed to be interfering with play. Verdict: open to interpretation by the officials - who got it wrong this time imho.
  13. Ah yes. ‘Come on silver lady take my word....’ one of my favourites back in the day. I liked him in Starsky and Hutch too!!
  14. I agree with this but we have to be careful. Moore is growing, like you said - and it’s HOW we/he deal with his mistakes that is key. We don’t want his confidence to be destroyed. He will be fully aware of the part he played in both the Boro goals today (aside from the lino’s Contribution) and we all want him to react positively. It’s also important to point out that Boro are a good side despite their indifferent start to the season and Assombalonga is a seasoned pro at this level. Moore isn’t the first and won’t be the last who will be undone by them.
