Strange places you have celebrated a goal
at 14:39 30 May 2024

Not a goal celebration but a double result celebration.

Last match of the season 1994 we needed to get a point more than Sheff Utd (playing at Chelsea) to avoid the drop from the Premiership. We were playing Blackburn at Ewood Park.

Listening to the classified football results read by the James Alexander Gordon on a shortwave radio in a tent in the pouring rain in the Cameron Highlands in Malaysia.

Blackburn Rovers nil; Ipswich Town nil
Chelsea 3; Sheffield United 2

Pandemonium. Instant noodles everywhere.

"It was mostly irrelevant rubbish, but somehow it was comforting."

Norwich has built a whole football team, fanbase and community around the existence of this very fact.

Thanks for that comment. The only problem I have with these DDN videos is that their title images verge on the partizan and sensational - which is a shame because the speakers are almost always very balanced, compassionate and quite frequently Jewish.

"The sad thing is that this ultimately serves no purpose other than to increase the incorrect conflation between ordinary peace loving jews and the outrageous actions of the state."

There are literally hundreds of articles and videos online where Jewish people are disassociating themselves completely from the Zionist government in Israel. They tend not to be religious fanatics, just normal people who appreciate the sanctity of life normally borne out of their own history of persecution.

Swings and roundabouts. Their stores in Huddersfield and Sheffield will need all the stock they can get their hands on.

Even extremists can't operate without financial support. Citizens of the countries who support the extremists on BOTH sides need to stand up against their leaders to end their support.

There will never be peace in Palestine if we say that we truly stand for peace but allow our governments to continue to arm the aggressors.

South African Jew, Andrew Feinstein, son of a holocaust survivor - who features in the last video I posted to this thread - offers us little bit of hope based on the recent history of South Africa. See 5:55-6:40 if you don't want to watch the whole video.

I think it's a regional problem affecting certain areas. Try moving to Norfolk or West Yorkshire where you'll be able to watch the Premier League remotely for the 2024/5 season.

Not an easy read at all. I'm struggling to understand how people can revel in the death of innocent human beings. NEVER AGAIN means "Never again for everybody".

Looks like a good time to remind people of these posts too:
Please for the love of god will people stop... by ChorleyBoy 21 May 10:31
Phil's words are fairly ominous and there's little doubt that he's more in the know than anyone else posing here. Also, I never said it was "idle speculation", but it is still speculation. I think Phil chose his words carefully but many posters here have interpreted it as a fait accompli.


Please for the love of god will people stop... by ChorleyBoy 21 May 15:06
I trust Phil to report

a) that there's increasing likelihood that Brighton will sign McKenna
and
b) that Kieran has agreed a deal with Brighton
or
c) that Kieran is staying with Town

Just because "a" has been reported doesn't mean that "b" will follow. Do you think it does?

Do we think McK was actually serious about leaving?
at 07:05 28 May 2024

Agree with this.

KMcK is a bright bloke and it's clear he's managing his own price very effectively.

In the space of 2 years, at the age of 38, he's now one of the hottest properties in world football.

If Kompany is anything to go by, Kieran's reputation can't really go down even if we finish in the relegation places next season.

This meteoric rise comes on the back of him being targeted by premier league clubs and there's no reason to doubt that he and his agent managed that to some extent while all the time staying risk free while with us.

It may have appeared from the outside that Kieran was close to leaving for Palace and perhaps even for Brighton, and in truth we'll never know for sure because even the man himself isn't going to admit that if it wasn't true.

Regardless, I'm happy we have a smart manager for a little while longer at least and there's no doubt that until now the Club and Kieran McKenna have been very good for each other..

Reputation is important for a manger at the highest level, so I suspect that both parties will continue to respect each other next time there is speculation over his future.

While KMcK has somewhat stolen the headlines this last week, my admiration, gratitude and faith in Mark Ashton has gone through the roof.

Yes, apologies for the edits, I kept finding correct predictions in my post history but modesty forced me to limit it to just a handful of posts. Needless to say I'll also include all the gaffes I make too.

Thanks Chris for this opportunity

League 1
Do people on here still think we will be top 2 by ChorleyBoy 25 Feb 2023 18:43
Yes and I always have done.

We've got a really deep squad and over the next 10 weeks is when that comes into play.

Yes we drew a bunch of "ought to win" games but we kept picking up points and what's more it didn't dent our goal difference.

Today was a great result. COYB

Worth pointing out also that I predicted we'd beat QPR 0:5 at Loftus Road

And of course this one:
BBC saying McKenna and Pert want to move on by ChorleyBoy 22 May 21:33
My take:
KMcK is staying at Town for another year (minimum), though most likely just a year.
Ashton and the owners have known this for a while.
KMcK isn't leaving Town in the lurch, Ashton has a whole year to find a replacement for the 2025/06 season in the Premier League.
KMcK's next club is ManUre, and they are fully briefed on KMcK's plan.
Brighton was used to drum up interest in KMcK and increase his price.
Chelsea was used to further increase his stock.
KMcK can walk away from Town having taken them to the Premier and in a healthy position where we have a year to find a replacement. KMcK's commitment to ManUre is untarnished too.
Town need not panic about the season ahead from a management point of view.

I don't like Maguire's face at all, but he would be a cult figure at PR if KMcK ever brought him here - and that would be "so McKenna".

I'm really hoping the budgies do that countdown clock where each day they say how many more days we have left in the division, only for them to quietly bin it at Christmas time.

Anyway, this appears to be great news for us which I think it worth at least 6 places in the Premier League. Let's see.
