Vamps

Actually it would be a big help if we could do the Tap after all. My daughter and grand-daughter are here from LA and they're off to London for a couple of nights before flying home. They're going down on the train on Saturday at 2:20 so that gives me a chance to nip out of the Tap, say goodbye and get back in just in time for the last 'un  ;D ;D ;D

No worries - Tap it is. Seton joining us. We’re meeting at 12:30, but guess you’ll be after 1 so you can wash your hair!!

Each one individually :DD :DD

Scotland have sacked Strachan apparently.  Serves him right for overlooking the two on fire midfielders he had at his disposal...  :DD

Is it Saturday yet - god I need a Blades fix........aint it great to feel that and be looking forward to a game rather than thinking I wonder if we might turn up this week and make my weekend!!

Pre match plans anyone?
Is the Donkey joining us?
Is that nutter from the south coast avoiding a sore arse and actually going to attend a match (have to say the extra elbow room has been quite nice  :DD?)

Back to The Bath or frequenting somewhere else?


I don't mind where we go Vamps - I guess Bath or Tap but I'm happy to frequent an alternative hostelry too.

Let's go to the Bath then - at least we know it's a) a decent pint and b) we'll get served no problem.

Sadly I can't make the next 2 home games but I can make Dull on 4th Nov  :ok:

Landlord, may I please take you up on your offer?  :ok: :DB

No problem. Rather than peeing about getting the card back and forth, do you wanna get a replacement paper one for the match if I send you my details?

I've got a loose idea for a script - bit far-fetched but the best stories often are:

It's about a young lad with a sticky-up hair cut.  He realises his dream to be ball boy at his favourite football club.  He then goes for a trial with the same club and they like what they see.  He then works his way trough the school boy ranks, making his professional debut at age 20.  He then plays over 200 games for his beloved club.

Later, after he retired from football, he gets his coaching badge then lands a role as assistant manager of a club in a small, industrial, smokey town in Lancashire.  He forms a bond with his boss but when a job to be in charge of his own team, albeit a non-league side, comes up he has to take his chances.  After a while he realises he needs some help from one experienced head and his old boss has just been sacked, so he persuades him to become his assistant - the roles are reversed.

The partnership works and the two of them form a cohesive, effective unit. They guide their non-league side into the football league but then the fans get restless, wanting more of the same but quicker.  He ends up being replaced and moves on to another side in the same division.  They win the league in their first year despite financial problems and the club almost folding.

Then, the dream comes true.  His old boyhood club has fallen on hard times.  It's fans are revolting, the team is struggling in the old 3rd division.  He takes over his old club, and together with his loyal, quiet assistant they win the league with record points at the first attempt.

Then there's a sequel.  In the follow on film the young manager takes his beloved team up to the Premier League the following year, setting the Championship alight with his flowing football...

That's what I thought - too unrealistic - no one would ever buy the concept...
