"Paul Parker, also a full-back, and Ledley King are his uncle and cousin".

Wow - that's some pedigree!
Little known Europe-based players studying "history"
at 13:07 14 Jun 2024

According to the BBC Moroccan, Chadi Riad of Real Betis, having signed for Palace for £14m was reportedly "interested in coming here because of the history of the club".

This auspicious history includes 3 titles (two Championship equivalent and one L1. And seven as runners-up on all Leagues ). They also lost two Cup Finals, but won four Play-off finals. There is also the winning of the ZDS Cup in 1991, which was always known by my young son as the Zoids Cup (who remembers Zoids?).

So much for their new signing to take in then. I hope that any new player who eventually kisses that good old horse has been studying our history for several months before declaring himself one of our own.

Shark mentality
at 13:15 24 May 2024

A recent thread drew attention to the "David Brent speak" of our admired Mr Ashton. Today he suggests that, to survive in the Prem, Town need a "shark mentality".

So, possible visions of how that could play out leap into the imagination, but not all of it to the good: devouring Fulham and Palace; circling round and round with Burns ready tp tear you apart again; increasing the pre=match sprinkler volume and daring our opponents to go back in the water again. Where else migh a shark mentality take us?

Define "tinpot club"!
at 17:04 28 Jun 2023

In view of this phrase being bandied about in recent threads, can there really be auch a thing? If so, what are the parameters

N.B. simply NAMING a club (even THAT one) isn't a sufficient definition.
Norwich up to third............
at 16:47 31 Mar 2023 the E.F.L. Sustainabilty League, according to the B.B.C. This league includes such match winners as low carbon food and single-use cup removal.

Town are at 20th in the league maybe because we at least picked up some points for not having an airport. Although a thousand-year old cathedral would doubtless pick up several more points on account of having proved its sustainability.

Forest Green are of course top, managing to combine the highest xG for having the goal of removal of disposable cups despite the lowest for actual goals.

As the song rang out It occurred to me in the recesses of my memory that, regarding 1962, there was something not only about us, but them. I looked it up and, sure enough, 7 weeks before we were crowned champions of England, the previous iteration of Accrington Stanley folded and were unable to fulfill their season, all results involving them being scrubbed. Wiki mentions something about getting into debt via the building of a stand which seemed a tad familiar. It got worse as three years later they were eventually chucked out of some Northern Combination league.

60+ years on, here we are, and they, in spite of last night's result, have in recent times often been a match for us. We certainly do need to get out of this league.

According to Sky "Aberdeen have announced the signing of goalkeeper Jay Gorter, subject to successful completion of the UK immigration process. The 22-year-old arrives at Pittodrie until the end of the season from Eredivisie club Ajax."

Hladcky not going there then.

3.5 year deal with Saints. Quite a few on here didn't fancy him, and while he's certainly improved while at Luton, he was a better right back here than many players we've endured.
