It’s also wrong!

I’d thought I’d read that they’d closed a few years after founding but they’re still going in the London amateur/old boys leagues.

Welching on your previous post eh?!

One of those days that remind you what it's actually like to be a Swindon Town fan 😒

I had a day which reminded you that sometimes non league football can be ... so bad you end up paying more attention to the kids kicking a bottle round and the rules they’re coming up with in their game.

Hastings won to return to the top of the table. But it was dour for long stretches. I have earned this pint.

Any Scottish football that doesn't involve the gruesome twosome I tend to be interested in. Been to Queen of the South a fair few times.

Queen of the South are live on BBC Scotland on Friday evening against Ayr. I'm looking forward to watching it.

We watch it on freeview down here on the BBC Scotland channel.

In the absence of a match, Southampton and Manchester City’s official Twitter feeds have been playing Noughts and Crosses this afternoon. That's the spirit that got us through the Blitz. :kolobok_biggrin:

My mistake; that should read professional football suspended in England, and professional fitba' suspended in Scotland.

🎶On this day in 1969,
On League Cup Final Day,
The Arsenal went to Wembley,
They walked the Wembley Way.
They thought they'd win it easy,
They thought they'd won the Cup,
But along come Swindon Town FC,
And fuc...🎶

...oh forgot. No swearing...

...Along come Swindon Town FC,
And become heroes forever. 

Arsenal 1-3 Swindon Town 😀

I got 8/10. Definitely knew 5 and totally guessed the rest.

I got 7/10. That Baseball Ground question was a stinker.

I taught a Belarussian language student who loved BATE, her father was part of the board.

Dynamo Brest are the current champions I think.

Interesting story doing the rounds concerning Premier League Clubs and their players living in a "Moral Vacuum" concerning their wages .It comes from Julian Knight who apparently is the chair of the Digital for Culture, Media and Sport committee , saying that players should be the first to sacrifice their wages in the current crisis . I`ve been thinking about this myself , as quite a lot of them as we know are on stupid money each week , surely they can`t just sit there for maybe 6 months taking the money for basically doing nowt , while businesses go to the wall and some families live hand to mouth , The NHS for one wouldn`t mind a little help with sourcing equipment etc. , surely a bit of common sense should prevail .

That's down to the players themselves, some of them have been donating, some of them have been bunkering.

I'm sure there are  examples of footballers (and "normal" people with money) being generous with their money at these times.

Personally I hope we don't hear about any of them because that means it's being done for the right reasons and not for self-seeking publicity.

Tottenham Hotspurs South Korean Son Hueng-min has been voted player of the year, but cant collect his trophy, because he's in S Korea doing some Natonal Service.

It will depend on who are the owners and directors surely? 🤔  Rule F. 1.6 of the Premier League Rules would seem to exclude people who are bad hats, regardless of the absence of criminal convictions, here or abroad.
