  1. Much as I would love it, I just can''t see Sheringham scoring a winner against Ip***ch this weekend so for me Diss week it has to be Carlisle v Yeovil - Home win. Carlisle did lose at home to Forest the other night, but that was their first defeat in 13, and they are still looking at automatic promotion. Yeovil are mid table and safe with only 2 wins in 9. A couple of Buxton this should see us home.
  2. This will be my 18th visit to Portaloo Road and I would agree with Bury Green that it certainly ain''t what it used to be. However it is still the one trip of the season that I really can''t wait for. Still get a buzz from the march from the station to the ground with plenty of noise. (Sad really in that I''m now 39!!) April 13th - Bring it on. Canary Ryan - Just let yourself go, be loud and proud and enjoy it.
  3. Wasn''t sure where to go for a selection this week, then thought somethames you have to look down. So, Yare why not the Conference. Stafford v Aldershot, away win. Stafford on the way down, Shots on the verge of a return to the League. Good luck Trent, hope for a Buretiful sum of money.  
  4. One that stands out for me was Robert Flecks 20 yard volley against Millwall at the Old Den in 1988. Last minute of the game, they''d battered us for the entire 2nd half, the Flecky won it with a beauty. Made leaving the ground a bit scary though!!
  5. Greetings once more. Into League 2 this week, Chester v Darlington, away win. Darlo are still sniffing automatic promotion, 1 defeat in 6 and 10 away wins this season. Chester on the other hand seem to be in freefall, only 1 win in 15 and 12 defeats at home, including the last 6. Good Luck CanaryGeorge.
  6. 1. 1985 Milk Cup Semi Final 2nd Leg City 2 Ip***ch 0  2. Thierry Henry 3. Robert Fleck 4. Darel Russell 5. Wembley - the new one (with City, the San Siro or the Millenium) 6. Ronaldinho
  7. G''day fellow pickers. This week I''m dropping into the Conference, or Blue Square Premier, or whatever its called, and going for Exeter to beat Droylsden. Exeter are pushing for a play off place, have a decent home record and only 1 defeat in 11. Droylsden on the other hand are rock bottom with 2 draws and 14 defeats away from home, and have 5 defeats in a row. Good luck Shack.
  8. Greetings again one and all. Some good looking games this week and my pick is in the Championship. Blackpool to win at home to Southampton. Blackpool have 1 defeat in their last 7 and looked a decent side at the Carra last week. Saints on the other hand have 1 win in 11 and that was against Bury in the Cup!! All the best NYC.
  9. Dropping into the Conference myself this week and going for Exeter to beat Altringham. Exeter 8 unbeaten, including victory over Stevenage and Cambridge. Altringham have 1 win in 7. Add to that a top v bottom clash with Exeter pushing for the play offs, Home win for me. Good luck YC.
  10. As has already been mentioned, the English leagues look tricky this week. However, I''m still going to League 2 for my pick: Rotherham to beat Lincoln No science to this one, just fancy Rotherham to get back on the promotion path this week. Good luck Pboro.
  11. Greetings all, first time picker here. Darlington to win at home to Mansfield. Something that may produce longer odds, Doncaster to beat Leeds> Good luck LGT.
  12. Anyone else reckon he''s a nailed on certainty to score at the Carra on Feb 2 when PNE come to visit?
  13. [quote user="Hissing Sid"] [quote user="lobster catcher"][quote user="a1canary"]It''ll be Pattison and Foz in the middle on Saturday with Russell''s suspension, but i''d also like to see Lappin restored to left midfield. He had a great game in the reserves and he''s been unfortunate to fall out of favour on account of his performances at left back rather than left midfield where he has always looked useful to me. He also gives more protection to the full back - huckerby on the left of a 4-4-2 makes me increasingly nervous these days. I''d like to see Hucks and Evans start up front. Although this deprives us of a target man, when we are playing confidently we can cope without a target man and concentrate on passing to feet and playing in what will be one of the paciest front pairings in the league. Then if we can get a lead or we need to change things, we can bring on Dion. [/quote]This post sums up this board,full of people who know very little about football,as i have said before simon lappin would struggle to get a game for sheringham![/quote] A bit harsh isn''t it? Surely what sums this board up is being full of people who have differing opinions about football. Personally I''d have Pattison in the centre, Chadwick on the right, Hucks in a free role behind / alongside Evans with Lappin on the left on Saturday. As Lobster said, he''s been unlucky that he''s been judged on his performances as a make-shift left back. [/quote] Oops, should have read A1 obviously!!!
  14. [quote user="Vern "][quote user="sam"] i heard that grant went back to school to do some PE lessons and duffy is now a roadsweeper i think, swear i saw him the other day [/quote]  They are touring theatres around the country doing a rival show to the chuckle brothers. Very amusing double act apparently. Had me in stitches with their football management show they performed in Norwich recently. [/quote] I wasn''t laughing at the time!!

  16. [quote user="1st Wizard"]I have a unique ''charm'' spell just right for this occassion, well? should I cast it?.[*-)][/quote] Do it Wiz, you''re clearly on a roll after Coventry and Blackpool!!!
  17. [quote user="jas the barclay king"][quote user="chris nunn"]   Beckham to score 91 mins - England 2-2 croatia [/quote] wouldnt be enough if Russia score a hatful vs Andorra jas :) [/quote] A draw will be enough, no matter how many Russia score. In the event of 2 teams finishing level, they are divided by the head to head record so 1 win each, England 4 Russia 2 on agg. I''ll get me coat!!!!
  18. [quote user="ncfcfaithful"]I have to say that the pressure had built up and the first spontaneous protest was the year we got relagated at home to Notts Forest.  We lost one nil to a late goal and i remember staying in the Barclays with about 200 others for about half an hour protesting, then as we were kicked out of the ground we turned on to Carrow Road to see about 300 more sat on the road protesting!!  it received front page coverage in the Evening News the next day and was the first of a few protests that year!!  The site of horses knocking people down outside the city stand still makes me laugh!! [/quote] Glad you found it funny, cause it scared the life out of me at the time.
  19. [quote user="Smudger"] Fantastic... are we becoming Newcastle Reserves???? Am sure the usual crew will be singing his praises before he has done absolutely anything for us. [/quote] And the usual suspects will slating him before he''s done anything wrong!!
  20. We visited the Hoe last season, a group of us were just wondering around and we noticed a wedding party nearby. They were having photos done and were having to keep moving around to avoid getting a bunch of mad City fans dressed in bright yellow shirts in the background of the photos of their big day!! Of course we kept moving around to make sure we were in the photos!
  21. Myself and Mrs Sid will be making the journey. Despite the distance and travelling time, for some strange reason this is a trip I always look forward to, I just can''t think why. If you''re right in what you say Polar, then hopefully our lot can show Sundays spirit and pick up an away win (remember those?)!
  22. 2-1 City with a last minute own goal by Wilnis in front of the Barclay!!!
  23. [quote user="OTBC"]I''m a little out of the loop, so if any of these players are injured/unavailable please tell me! Marshall Ostemobor Dublin Murray Lappin Croft Brellier Smith Huckerby Strihavka Cureton This game is massive, irrespective of the opposition, we need a win. We must be positive, take the game to Ipswich by playing attack minded players. What do people think? [/quote] Would go with that but I would have Russell for Brellier. 4-4-2 with fast attacking footie and Hux embarrassing Wilnis in front of the pit. Am I hoping for too much?
