  1. Whenever I used to get fed up in the old days I'd get my copy down and read a few chapters. it always cheered me up. That and " The Good Soldier Schwiek " by Jaroslav Hasek.
  2. It's funny how different people's experiences are. I couldn't put it down. It was lent to me by a guy I used to know in the pub. Real Tory, old ex military type - I was amazed when I read it that he'd loved it as well.
  3. I can't argue with that. I wasn't there but looking at the teamsheet York shouldn't be 60-0 better than that team we had out. There's obviously something drastically wrong behind the scenes.
  4. I didn't have problem with it back in the day when I read it, and I wasn't on drugs any stronger than a pint of Robbie's mild.
  5. I'm looking forward to the TV version of " Catch 22 " this week. It's got to be better than the film they made" The series on Mrs Thatcher has been good although I couldn't bring myself to watch the episode covering The Miners Strike. This week it's the last episode dealing with her downfall so that'll put a smile on my face. The bottom line is she was every bit as awful as we thought she was.
  6. Tell that to that French guy who blew the Open a few years ago.
  7. He's only passing through. Give him a year or two and he'll find his rightful home.
  8. I've been struggling to get off to sleep lately. I think I'll record this and play it at bedtime.
  9. It is one member one vote. The only members of the board will be the ones that are voted on by the membership. Martin Hall is the only ex player standing that I am aware of so it's possible he will be a successful candidate.
  10. The only ex player I can recall seeing at the club in recent times is Martin Hall. Tony Pratt was a regular until a few years ago but he seems to have taken his ball home. He had a group of ex players in the box he had but when Tony bailed out they stopped coming also. I'd like to know who these people with " strong connections to the club " are and where have they been until now ?
  11. I look forward to seeing them all at the AGM. The cynic in me wonders why, with one or two exceptions, they're all suddenly interested in events at the club when they've never shown the slightest interest in the club over the years.
  12. " You can always tell a Yorkshireman, but you can't tell him much ".
  13. Manchester Lions it is then, or for the really cynical Manchester Lie ons.
