    I got this note from Gordon (Pistonbroke), from his hospital bed in Bielefeld, and he asked me to pass it on to "the lads": After a rough night I'm feeling a bit better, being on drips with liquid medicine is having an effect. Had all tests done for corona and have to wait 48 hours or thereabouts for the results. 8 people were taken to the city hospital with the same symptoms, but none of us has a high fever. So we are all lined up to have a camera shoved down our airways to check on them and lungs. That is planned for today as I'm nil by mouth. I'll let you know more once I get the results from both the camera and the corona test...

    The kids asked what was for dinner and I told them “Scraps”. They started crying. Spoiled brats, it’s really hard to find fresh food at the moment due to all the panic buying. And it was a stupid name for a dog anyway.

    With things being quiet on the footy front at some point soon I'll close the site for a day or two to upgrade the software. Not sure when I'll do it but I'll give you plenty of notice. In terms of content for the subscribers, there's obviously no match reports or round ups on the immediate horizon but I will try to keep the diary going as long as there's stuff to comment on. I want to try and keep giving you value for money though so to replace the match reports I've had an idea. "Time Machine Match Reports" Basically I'm going to do reports on memorable games from the past but I'll be writing them as though I'm there at that time and have no knowledge of what happens over the following years. So, for example. The first one is going to be the 1986 FA Cup Final. I'll be writing a report on that game as though I'm writing it in 1986. Obviously these will be a lot harder to write than current reports because I need to do some research to see what was happening in and around these games as I want to write them in the same style I would do games taking place now. The reports aren't going to be "after ten minutes Dalglish put one on a plate for Rush and we took the lead" as that's not my style. I want to make them as close to how I'd write it normally, so to do that I'll actually need to do some background research. I'd like to do one a week but that might be overly ambitious depending on what resources are available, so in terms of the frequency we'll play that by ear. The biggest complication is that I'll only do reports on games where I have access to the full 90 minutes, but getting the full 90 minutes of old games isn't easy. I've got various cup finals from the 60s, 70s and 80s (ideally I don't want to do anything later than those anyway) and I've got the Forest 5-0, but other than that I'll be struggling so if anyone can point me in the direction of full 90 minute videos then that would be great. I'll hopefully have the first one ready to post in a few days.

    The Grand Old Team you hear them exclaim. Subsidised tickets to get to the game. The Peoples Club another myth exposed. A decrepit stadium needing to be bulldozed. The Old Lady we are and they say it every day. Pity that team is really Juve. Bitter and Proud their usual retort. While really they’d be better following another sport. Jealous, deluded, nasty and vile. Redshite Murderers their usual bile. They say we’re victims and always to blame. The stuff they come out with puts them to shame. Now I could go on, wax lyrical and bluster. Get wound up and all in a fluster. I reconcile myself with a little ditty. The world is ours, and so is the City. Tony Kirkdale. Aka VD.

    He's got mates on here - including me - who have been on sites like this together for over 20 years. Now may not be the time for your special brand of humor.

    Thanks all, and Barry in particular I’m embarrassed to not have known (or at least remember) what you’ve already been through - but delighted to hear its positive. we talked her through it, and she cried with us, but we also giggled at things and laughed at photos her mum showed of when she was a little girl, and then we went through our wedding photos. me and my girl then played in two parks, and we went for tea with my mum and dad and my girlfriend tonight. we just had another little cry together at bed time but then giggled our way through a chapter of Winnie-the-pooh which is one of our favourite books. thanks for all your words.

    The guy in my local shop. It was my day off on Friday so I took the kids to school, I called in my local corner shop to try and get some bread and milk but i was in before they had their delivery, the man said it would be about 45 minutes, I said I would try and get back later on. Forgot all about it, went home went out for a few hours on my bike and went back to the shop in the afternoon to get some other bits I needed, unsurprisingly they had no milk or bread left. Went to the counter and the guy popped into the back and came back with a 4 pint of semi skimmed and a wholemeal loaf. Not only did he keep them for me, he remembered what types of milk and bread I usually buy. Not much but it is the little things.

    How's about he sells his fucking island and puts the proceeds from that, along with the money he sued the NHS for, into the kitty? Cheeky fucking parasite!

    Can’t we just criticise her without the misogynist shit. She’s a dickhead. No need to suggest anything else.

    Merseyside Derby I: Liverpool put out a makeshift team and still net 5 goals, courtesy of their old nemesis, Div! Merseyside Derby II: Liverpool eliminate the blues from the FA Cup with a team of U/23s, a born-and-bred Scouser with a memorable winner. Merseyside Derby III: Liverpool officially seal the title win, breaking a 30-year drought, at Goodison Park? It'd be a boxset to rival the Rocky movies.

    NHS aside, people working in shops. I weigh up if it’s worth the risk of nipping in, grabbing my bits, self serve and tapping the card but these heroes are there working overtime, being moaned at and interacting with hundreds of people a day.

    Massive shock to find people wanting state support for them and theirs when misfortune strikes, dressed up as concern for others, having not been quite so forthcoming about other people needing it in the recent past when they weren’t themselves affected. Cunts.

    These celebs with the virus that are posting videos probably mean well but they must be completely oblivious to the sheer anxiety and financial implications that this could have on a very high percentage of population. It's easy to be positive when you have enough money to never have to work again. If they really want to help they should be helping people financially, if not shut the fuck up. No one cares about you, when the whole worlds going tits up.

    They had a full house for that game when Pele busted his shoulder too. John Wark played in that one.

    If this league is voided and for some reason a new season is considered more important than finishing a league that is 75 percent complete then I'm done with football. As soon as it's safe to start a new season it's safe to finish this one first.

    I'm really gutted for you Bob. Fucking hell. I'm not sure how relevent my advice is, but I'll share anyway. My kids were 7 & 10 when my stuff started. Once I got my terminal prognosis, I wasn't quite sure how to deal with it with the kids. Up till then they just knew I wasn't well and the doctors were trying to find out why. Once it was clear it was cancer and I was stage 4, I obviously had a choice to make on what to tell them. Because they were young, I decided I didn't need to tell them right then how dire the situation was. I just told them I was really ill, but the doctors were going to give me some treatment to improve it. I actually ended up using that line with everyone. It just felt there would be a point when I knew there was nowhere to turn and the fight was done, I could tell them then. As it turns out, I feel I made the right choice because I was lucky and I turned around all the doctors expectations, so I didn't put the kids through unnecessary anguish, almost like they'd need to go through dealing with my death twice. As it turns out up to now, they've not had to deal with it once. But obviously it could have been very different. I don't think there's a right or wrong to this. Everyone's prognosis is different even if it's terminal and all kids will be different (and different ages), so need to be dealt with for your own unique case. The underlying thing for me was never to lie to them, just perhaps only show them as much truth as I absolutely had to.

    Plane with 5 passengers on board, Donald Trump, Boris Johnson, the Pope, Nicola Sturgeon and a ten year old school boy. The plane is about to crash and theres only 4 parachutes. Trump said I need one. I’ve to sort out the USA!’ Takes one and jumps. The pope said ‘I need one, I've to sort out the Catholic Church.’ He takes one and jumps. Boris said ‘I’m the smartest man in England.’ He takes one and jumps. Nicola said to the ten year old "you can have the last parachute. I've lived my life, yours is only starting". The 10 year old said "Don’t worry, there are 2 parachutes left. The smartest man in England took my school bag"

    Panic in the streets of Conway. Panic in the streets off County Rd. I worry to myself. Will life ever be the same again. The Walton side streets that you shit down. I worry to myself. Hopes may rise in the Wilmslow. But for Koppites it’s a no go. So you walk down. For a pint by the ground. But there’s panic on the streets Connahs Quay. Colwyn Bay, Rhyl and Anglesey. Burn down the Brick now. Hang the bastard DJ. Because he played that song today. It’s go nothing to do with my life. Hang the bastard DJ. Because he played that song today. Void the season, void the season. Void the season, void the season. Void the season, void the season. Void the season.
