    OT - EU straw poll...

    Sad news for all those losing their jobs. Redundancy is no fun especially for those over fifty, I've been there and know what it's like. The printing industry changed out of all recognition almost overnight thanks to computerised technology as KG will confirm. Those firms that couldn't change quick enough fell by the wayside Things move rapidly in the modern world and very few jobs are for life. Unless you are an MP in a safe seat

    Swindon, I read that most of the cars made at your plant were USA spec or right hand drive models. Wondered if you could throw some light on this.

    In the present climate I think Monster Raving Loony is looking like the sensible persons best bet.

    Makes you wonder how Japan can now access the EU tariff free and not have to follow any Single Market rules and without any kind of backstop but we can't

    Since they can supply direct from Japan without tarrifs then there isn't much of an advantage either in or out.

    From what I've read on the Internet Honda Swindon mostly make right hand drive models and USA specification. Perhaps Swindon Canary could confirm. There are no plants elsewhere in the EU which is largely supplied from Turkey. If Japan can now supply direct without tarrif's then hardly much of a surprise that they are consolidating. Be interesting to see how it all plays out.

    The net is certainly tightening. Around Corbyn's neck.

    It was a home game. The Brighton win was at the Goldstone ground and Sunderland was at Roker Pk.

    I was at the Dorchester Town game Bill. As I recall I stood in the Enclosure which was in front of the Main Stand. (3 pence extra for boys) In the game away at Sunderland I believe we led 2-1 at halftime

    Ralph Hunt

    My dad always said he was a bit of a carthorse but although not quick or tricky I thought he was pretty decent in front of goal. I remember him best converting a header at the Barclay End from a peach of a cross from Bobby Brennan. Can't for the life of me remember who it was against but certain things do stick in your mind. I can also remember him scoring against 1pswich in that 3-2 win I mentioned the other day. I'm pretty sure that one was at the River End.

    Terry Allcock got 26 in the '62/63 season and another 11 in the Cups (6 FA-5 LC) 37 in total which is the record.

    Ralph Hunt

    31 in the League and 2 in the FA Cup I expect I am one of the few left who can remember him in action. Division 3 (South) Big blonde guy, old fashioned type of centre forward who could run through a brick wall. Very good in the air, not so good on the ground. Played for a lot of clubs in the lower leagues. Tragically killed in a car accident sometime in the 1960's

    Penalties - Go High!

    I don't care how hard, just beat the keeper. Neil Adams always had the accuracy to find the corner while Ted Mac just sent the keeper the wrong way. No professional team should be missing six out of seven.
  22. great goal scorer, never seemed to miss when one on one. Never smashed it, just waltzed round the keeper and a sidefoot. great memories.
  23. Where's Ted McDougal when you need him.
  24. we'd have been better off with a corner.
  25. This could be a big result
