Surprised to see the news that Marlon King has been arrested again!

Marlon King-he's no prince!

 

IIRC, King has been convicted for a driving offence previously. Given his record with other convictions and prison sentences, the implications for him are serious if he is found guilty of an offence of failing to stop, or whatever the legal definition is...

 

Obviously the important matter is the health of the chap who was injured in the hit and run.

One of the Coventry City companies...apparently the structure is somewhat complicated.

It was explained to me a while ago. Bent as a nine bob note.

Allegedly.

 

The absence of notes does appear to be an issue.

There is a team in the Polish Football league called Podbeskidzie Bielsko-Biala, I hope they never play an English side & Ray French is chosen to commentate!

James Alexander Gordon's replacement as reader of the Football scores? It's Charlotte Green!

I'm off to AFC Emley v Wigan Robin Park on the 18th in the Extra Preliminery Round, moved from Saturday the 17th due to a clash with Emley Cricket Club, unknown at this stage if it was shared facilities or playing resources that caused the issue!

Watched Mainz 05 vs VFB Stuttgart and FC Schalke 04 vs SV Hamburg on BT Sports. The Bundesliga is great! First time since the 90's I've enjoyed a football match (well 2 actually) that didn't involve either Swindon Town or my lad.

I've been a very casual Werder Bremen fan since I went there on a German exchange and the boys in green did the decent thing and won the Cup-Winners Cup - so it was nice to be flicking between the channels on the weekend just in time to see them score a rather splendid goal against the run of play against Braunshweig.

 

Also on Saturday for the first time in a very long time I actually made it to a game and stayed for the whole time.  Chalfont Wasps kicked off their Hellenic League season against Maidenhead United Reserves.  One of those games that came close to having pretty much everything - although two late goals made it look easier than it was.  Maidenhead winning 3-1.

 

Here's a photie:

The FA's new "respect" campaign.  Very good :D

 

I think that referees in all sports should be given teddy bears to hand out to players who lose theirs on the field.

I followed a  bus in Leeds today with a poster on the back that read "let's forget about the past and be United"  it also had the LUFC logo on it. Presumably someone somewhere feels they need to apologise!

The good thing was that the ref was far more tolerant than a non-UK ref usually is.  He clearly did his research and understood that the game would have more bite than the typical international friendly.

 

Quite enjoyable for a football match...
