... signs a new 2-year deal for Essex . Marvelous .
Non-league derbies
at 09:41 28 Nov 2021

I saw that Macclesfield took about 700 fans to Northwich Vic. for the Cheshire derby. (Won 4-3) .
Got me wondering, what have been the biggest non-league rivalries in E.Anglia? By which I mean, which games have generated big crowds? ('Big' being a relative term of course - I realise that Cheshire and the north west has plenty of fallen 'giants' in the way that Suffolk does not. )
Brentford shirt
at 11:23 25 Nov 2021

Says in the paper that Brentford have announced they won't have a new shirt next season. "Fans have told us that they would be in favour of the savings a 2-season shirt would provide" said the CEO.

Good for them, I say, - and my guess is they''ll be rewarded for this with good sales at Christmas, given how they're going.

Dobra update

He's certainly improving week by week, taking much more defensive responsibility, and getting the full 90 minutes. Exquisite pass to set up the third goal. (1.26 on the video.)

Tidy finish by the lad up front as well
Top action!

That footage on the highlights of Wycombe's festival of wild swipes and mis-kicks in the Town area is surely going to be getting a lot of showings here and there. Whoever was doing the 'shots off target' count must have been busy.
Home Park

I went to Home Park a couple of years ago, and thought it looked kind of like Portman Road, ( more from the outside than the inside) but put Portman R. to shame in terms of general upkeep. If you’ll excuse the kind of pun, Home Park looked ship-shape, and showed how shabby PR had become. Is that fair?

Modern English language question.

Is it only footballers and other 'sports people' doing interviews, or can other people begin sentences with 'listen' (or 'look' for that matter) and it not be seen as confrontational?

By which I mean that until a few years ago people would only start with 'listen' if they wanted to show they were irritated. e.g 'Listen, get that car back to me by tomorrow or I'm taking my business elsewhere from now on', or 'Listen here, young man, how many times have I told you...' etc

What I'm asking is (and it's a genuine question), do normal people answer civil questions with 'Listen,...'. e.g. 'Did you have a good day out in London?' 'Listen, everyone had a great time.'

Or is it something footballers and football managers have learned from each other. (A bit like always referring to 'this football club' when 'this club' would do for the rest of us.)

"Your profession shouldn't define you as a person, and I realise that cricket is just a sport and that Essex is just one cog in the wheel of county cricket. But I'm not ashamed to say that for 19 summers Essex has been my purpose and focus."

What a class act he is.
The National League today

... some fun results . 50 goals in 11 games, and one was a O-O draw and most games were close. I hope it’s part of a trend for more goals .

The Sheriff Tiraspol squad

...must have the most colourful collection of national flags of any in history.

Not too shabby to beat Red Star Belgrade and Dynamo Zagreb.
