    Old Barclay Memories

    Boily burgers, and the rush 10 minutes before kick off to get to the top right hand corner near the fence...
  2. Yep, an Ipswich shirt from a local in Douala Cameroon, for 5 Dollars, a pair of used work boots and my Digital phone company Championship winner T shirt. It was ceremonially stuffed with aerosol cans, dumped in the incinerator and blown apart. Not sure who was more surprised, me to see a filthy Fisons shirt in Africa, or the chap to see his shirt blown to smithereens!

    Took it all quite serious back then.....

    Four hours and counting

    So, it''s 19.00, 4 hours to go before the window slams shut. It''s been very quiet today with no usual statement saying, not to expect players coming in, going with what we''ve got etc.

    It''s now emerging that players are on their way out, either on loan or perms., with probably a couple more to go before the deadline.

    So, what are the chances of the odd inbound player coming in before 23.00, and even longer odds of a surprise marquee player at that?

    Transfer Window

    Waccoe''s gone into meltdown. Tried to log on for a bit of a gloat, but no chance. Snodgrass also having a medical at Blackburn allegedly.

    Bellamy to Liverpool on a free

    Teletext, thats a blast from the past.

    I remember driving everyone mad as a kid checking every 5 minutes pre-Internet for the odd bit of news, which usually turned out to be squit.. Page 604, if i''m sad enough to remember rightly.

    whats this all about

    ''cruising - is the act of walking or driving about a locality in search of a sex partner, usually of the anonymous, casual, one-time variety'',

    In Ipswich? either you have very low standards, or lost, for your sake i trust it was the latter.

    Retro Shirts

    To be honest i had to look up if it was ''The football League'' at the time, as they looked in real good nick and unusual to see both of them up for sale together . Out of curiosity, was the medium really a medium, or were they more of a small as were most of the replica shirts back then?

    ''I got my Asiscs for £72 last week, Same seller had the away one too, that went for £78''

    Ahh, so that was you?, i Bid on both at £70 right up until the last 20 minutes then lost connection. Couldn''t believe they hung around at that price so long. Hope they were in as good condition as they looked on Ebay

    A new quote from Pacheco

    He doesn''t know him, apparently he was with a group of young players, and parents. Got talking to a couple of the players, one who used to play for his home town club and apparently a conversation was struck with a couple of the fathers, thats all i know.

    This all happened about 3 weeks ago, and to be honest i took it with a pinch of salt, as there were lots of rumors about him joining at the time. Also thought he''d been primed by a Leeds fan we work with to wind me up, but apparently he had told somebody else before me. Like i said, could just be wishful thinking on his Dads part, and I don''t think this guys telling porkies.

    Deliberately havent put this guys name on here who told me, as what little credibility this rumor has would go up in flames!!

    A new quote from Pacheco

    Man i know i''m gonna get slated for this if it doesn''t happen. But......One of the Spanish guys who i work with, a Barca fan who, up until i showed him a photo of DP with us at the riverside after the end of the season game, had never heard of him, which surprised me.

    Anyway according to him, he had met his Farther at an airport, (not sure which one), while he was waiting for his flight to join the vessel we work on. Anyway, apparently his Farther wasn''t happy with the way he had been treated by Liverpool, and didn''t get the game time he was assured of when he joined. He went on to say, that he was hoping that his son would complete ''the'' deal with Norwich. Also said that the club treated them very well when they came over for the last game of the season.

    Like i say, this maybe total squit, but would seem very odd for someone to make such an elaborate story up, considering he didn''t even know who he was until i showed his goal on youtube! I''ll get me flack jacket now.
