They did play

There was a full programme in every league aside from the Premiership and Championship, as well as it being the First Qualifying Round (Round Three, as I have to explain to my son is not called that despite it being that) of the FA Cup.

They did it, AT LAST.

After 882 days, and 74 games Fort William finally won a League game 1-0 at home to Clachnacuddin. In August they won a North of Scotland Cup game 5-2 v Nairn after 840 days without any kind of win. They are on a roll now. OK, admittedly the FWFC team that won had 9 players on loan from Inverness Caledonian Thistle, but a win is a win, 12th April 2017 was their last League win

A few days ago was the 50th anniversary of Swindon Town beating AS Roma 4-0 (5-2 on aggregate) at The County Ground to win the League Cup Winners Cup.

The competition was created by the Football League, and their Italian counterparts, because, under league rules, 3rd Division Swindon were not allowed to enter the Fairs Cup (Europa League) after their League Cup win over Arsenal. 

The Italian FA were so impressed with Swindon's performance against Roma, the Anglo Italian Cup was created. Swindon won that too, beating Juventus twice (1-0 in Turin and 4-0 at home) on the way to the Final in Naples. Swindon beat Napoli 3-0 to lift the trophy.

Five months after the Napoli win, I was born and Swindon Town have never graced such heights again.

Possible connection? ?

I hate Tuesday night games! 

Four Tuesday games, four defeats. 

Unbeaten on all other days! 

 

 

I suppose I should tag @Bob8 for this as well. ?

No need. I am satisfied that Oxford are doing much better.

It's an interesting division to follow.

I look for Morecambe's results each week as I tend to like teams that always struggle, especially if they keep managing to survive.

As a Tottenham fan, I'm fearing the worst after Man Utd defeat. How long will Ole last? Will Pochetino go.if Solskaer is sacked.?

900 million spent since Sir Alex left!! How do you spend that amount and end up.with such dross.

They were too keen to appoint Solskjaer in the first place - caretaker managers have little pressure.

Still no Director of football in place.

have only ever heard of one arsenal player in tonites game, having said that I wouldn't know him if he walked up to me, alarming even for me!

Charlie George retired a few years back.
