Well we finally got out of that awful league and what a season it was - some quality football, excellent away days and some great memories.

2017/2018 sees us back in the Championship so it's time to start afresh. We'e created the new set of boards for the season and here they are.

Happy bantering Blades - here's to another fantastic season under Chrissy Wilders Red and White Army

Boro match at Riverside selected for Sky

Great test for us. They dropped from PL and are favourites to go back up, we're the new boys up from the lower league.

So, 2-0 Blades then  :ok:

The funny thing was Wilder trying to claim they put up a stern test!  ;D

In case you didn't see it on What's App, this is the current ST availability map.

Rumour has it that 20k have been sold so far.

It's going to be jumping at BDTBL next season...

1. Go and purchase a few San Miguel's and make sure they are chilled thoroughly in the freezer
2. Turn the central heating up so it's stupidly hot
3. Click this link and watch a stream of tonights match in Malaga http://www.malagacf.com/129171c5e4649e9dd05f2b6d3a332f77.html

It'll be just like being there, no doubt even the commentary will be in Spanish!!!

....put your feet in a tray of gravel but do all of this is some no-mark town in the middle of nowhere for that genuine feeling of actually being there.

I used to sell advertising for a newspaper on the Costa Del Sol and several of our customers were up in Coin. I can only assume the houses are WAY cheaper than on the coast because it's a bit like Louth or Worksop.

The fully-shaved weird couple who would greet you in bathrobes, pay you the bill for the ad and then drop bollock naked into their pool, weighed down with half a ton of scrap metal inserted through various body parts were entertaining though (no I never did take up the constant invitation to join them - VERY Alan Partridge!)



EDIT: The pitch actually looks eminently playable, and the live stream is excellent quality!

Cracking goal from Fleck, but in the 2nd half he makes a perfect tackle and not only does the ref give a foul, he gives Fleck a yellow! Every replay shows he timed his tackle perfectly.


Edit: Good workout overall, nice to see Evans back in the red and white, Brooks had a steady game apart from almost gifting a very late equaliser. Malaga technically very good but Moore hardly saw the ball. UTB!

Too one-footed for me :whi :whi

However, that little video will have done his career no harm whatsoever. Yes, it was against kids of his own age and he probably wouldn't get away with it against hairy arsed defenders in the FL.

Still, it does show that he has some talent which would be nice to see at BL.
