KJ has asked me to post on here on her behalf as I'm on here more often than her these days...
She's looking for a local band/singer that might be willing to provide warm up (probably something like 30-45 mins I think, but she could confirm that) at a community fun day being organised in Bourne Park on Saturday 24th May (I will let her know I'll be thinking of her doing it if I'm at Wembley myself!)
It would be a good opportunity to raise your profile as there should be a good number there - there is a fair bit going on: another band, drumming & circus workshops, bouncy castles, jousting and carnival stalls, pet advice, grooming and microchipping and several other local organisations, large range of refreshments available. It's a free event (with the exception of food and drink and craft/gift stalls etc)
If you know anyone who may be interested, please PM me and I can give you/them details and a number to call or get KJ to call them.
And if so, has yours shunted all future games this season forward by one day, or is it just mine playing up? All previous games are in the right place with the correct scores etc, it's only from Blackburn onwards. Very strange.
"They came even nearer three minutes later when they broke after the Blues surrendered possession on midway and Forsyth brought the ball forward before hitting a powerful shot which struck the outside of Gerken’s right post. Soon after, Nouble picked up a yellow card for a foul."
At the time, from our position just behind the goal it actually looked as though, and everyone else around us were saying so too, that Gerken actually got his fingers to it and put it onto the post. He also gave a wry smile when it was given as a goal kick not a corner, but looked like it was a very good save rather than just hitting the post.
Having looked at it again on the highlights, I'm still not convinced he didn't get a touch, and if he did - what a massive save it was in the whole scheme of things!
Had a quote from Chips Away at Martlesham to repair some paintwork that has come off where it got knocked, leaving the bodywork exposed on the edge of the door, but wondered if anyone used anywhere that might potentially do a better job/price than them - I've not used them to know if they're any good anyway.
Any advice for writing a speech? I've been best man a couple of times before, but they were for first timers - didn't know if anyone had any experience or if there were any tips what to or what not to include that you might do first time around?
KJ and I can't go to the Wigan game on the 15th as we're going to be away, so we've got 1 x adult, 1 x under 16 and 4 x under 11 tickets in Sir Alf Ramsey Lower (a few rows from the front and slightly to the left of the goal as you view it from the stand) that are available for use if anyone would like to use either one, some or all of them.
PM me for details to arrange to let you have tickets between now and then.
But a massive well done to Textbackup and Dan for the banners - thought they looked excellent when I popped up to the SAR Upper from Legends on Saturday to have a look. I'm sure I'm late to the party in giving praise, but couldn't be bothered to trawl through and find a thread that had already been started to say so.
