    Site plans during the lockdown

    Thought I was over it when I posted the update on here, but it came back with a vengeance and I've been in bed ever since. Feel much better this morning so hopefully this time I am coming out of it.
  2. Netflix with Guardiola. Grim for him that, having to sit there looking at my glorious, thick head of hair. The one person on that list I'd want to be with is Maradona. We'd just be trolling Shilton on twitter the whole time.

    Site plans during the lockdown

    Been laid low with this bastard virus. All three of us have had it. Adrianna is fine but me and Gail have barely been able to move since Thursday. I was doing the diary last week but was too ill to finish it. The last hour or so I've suddenly started feeling more like normal so hopefully I've turned the corner now. Will try and get it finished when I'm up to it, so will probably just do a two week diary and post up this weekend. I'd started on the match report from the 86 final too. Was making good progress on it until I got sick. Looking at posting that next Monday, as the plan is to post the reports up on Mondays just like normal.
  4. Fake news. I said 'day or two' (to cover myself, really it should be no more than an hour or two) and now Stig is scaremongering with 'a few days'. How long before he's telling people it's 'a week or two'? You all should really neg him to teach him a lesson.
  5. They had a full house for that game when Pele busted his shoulder too. John Wark played in that one.

    That website is great. I watched a bit of a game against Chelsea (1987 I think) before and there's a tackle by Venison that's absolutely horrific. Shin high, over the ball, absolutely nails the fella. Free kick, no yellow card and the commentators not really arsed about it.

    Nice one Rob, that's an absolute gold mine!

    Yeah they're defo on here somewhere. They won't be listed int he match report index though. That's something I might get stuck into while there are no games as the archive really should be easier to access than it currently is.

    I actually wrote reports on all of those at the time, Cain. So kind of defeating the object there! The 96 Cup Final is the exception as that was before TLW, but I've never watched that since and have no intention of doing so now!
  11. 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.
  12. Pretty sure that players won't shit on their own clubs like that. They'd finish the season with their existing clubs I reckon, probably on week to week deals.
  13. It's all well and good saying have a 22 team league with Leeds and West Brom, but neither of them had secured automatic promotion, and even if they had, what of the third promotion place via the playoffs? All those teams in contention for that would be suing the PL for potential lost earnings. The season has to be completed before a new one starts. It's the only way to avoid all kinds of legal proceedings.
  14. Almost all of it is written on the day (usually that night). Sometimes if not much has happened on a particular day I'll go back at the end of the week and check newsnow to see if there's anything I can add to it to pad it out a bit. There was virtually nothing going on last Sunday though, hence the lack of content for that day.
  15. Genuinely don't even know what that is. And seeing as you brought it up, I'm assuming I'm better off not knowing!
