Town Topic: Memories of The Beat
at 18:17:19

I never had the privilege of seeing him play, his last game in the 1981 Semi was a year or two before I started going to games.

But in the early 00’s, I was secretary of our Sunday league club in the LTL, and he was part of the committee from one of the other teams and I knew someone who knew him who was also at the League meetings.
He was a friendly guy, very down-to-earth and would talk to anyone - no airs or graces whatsoever. If you didn’t know who he was and what he had done as a younger man, you’d have just thought he was just another guy.

More recently, I’ve seen him in the Fanzone, again, talking to anyone who would come up for a chat, including men 10+ years older than me who were proper star-struck and could barely get their words out.

RIP The Beat.

Sam Allardyce – The Sensible Choice?
at 10:18:56

One minor point of order.... Allardyce wasn't Bolton manager for the PO Semis in 1999, Colin Todd was, Fat Sam didn't take over until Sept 1999.

Wigan Game Set for Sunday Switch
at 20:14:07

Chicago... That was due to Sept 11th... We should have played the week before, but UEFA put the games back a week due to the air chaos and uncertainty following 9/11.

As for TV games, the less the better. They're a pain in the arse.

Early Start at Burnley
at 18:36:26

Because Sat 3pm games can't be shown on tv.

I know Burnley v ITFC probably be won't be screened, but all games on last day of the season have to kick-off at the same time.

Clearly signed as CB cover for the rest of this month as we only have 2 CBs at the moment while MM works on a deal for longer-term signing.

Blues Face Luton in Pre-Season
at 12:25:10

Wally, we usually only have one home pre-season game and loads of away ones, what's the problem?
We usually get such small crowds to home pre-season games, we probably make a loss on them.
Where as for lower league clubs, playing bigger clubs in pre-season is a valuable source of income for them.

Excellent - I think you've covered every point that has led us to this point, highlighted the mess, identified what we all want and how we could do it.

Usually when I read a post / blog on here, I agree with some of it, but not all. I'm struggling to find a single sentence I don't agree with in this one. One nail you've hit on the head in particular is the one regarding fitting a system around our current big-earning midfielders, not the other way round.

TractorMan, have you seen how fans get to the Upper Tier? Through the same turnstiles as the Lower tier and past the entrance to Legends. It can't work.
