What with the BLM narrative - of which I personally feel has been high jacked by the looney left and other back door sneaks - in fact a lot of my black mates don’t give it the time of day as they realise what’s happening ...I ask the title thread question.
Because my ex wife was attacked in Grinstead by two knife welding Eastern European’s a few days ago - suffered a cut to the hand actually.
Made off with her shopping.
To me the influx of these types have really put us under a dark cloud and they are everywhere in London.
I don’t mind admitting I would have hunted them down if I wasn’t of the Christian persuasion ..
What has it got to do with BLM ? Not sure - maybe I’m connecting the old idea that only blacks get bad press for criminal activity and the subsequent booing might have racial over tones - and for some it might - but for others they don’t want to be dictated to for not complying with the knee.
As we have battled through Covid I am Introducing a new competition more akin to the old Happy cup as a one off knock out for next season. This will not go towards any historic points in the Happy League - but will be logged for posterity. It is a simple gesture of thanks to all participators over the years. This is a ONE off memorial cup/competition ..
This is in memory of our departed Yankee brother Peter who I had met on several occasions and found him to be a most generous man.
The prize is £50 and will buy 2 tickets for a Colchester United match in 2021 a choice of 3 matches or £25 cash.
I will not be entering myself (unless rule 743 needs to be activated) but my partner Gooner will enter as himself. (Who also knew Pete).
Do indicate your interest and entry - thank you
* rule 743 shortage of player ..
Mr Happy - your president.
RIP Peter mate. You were unique. You were like Marmite. I like Marmite.
15 years ago a wandering cockney who supported Derby County from the inner cities upped sticks and moved his family to Colchester in search of cheaper housing and a safer environment to bring up kids - and even though my marriage didn’t work out in the end and I found myself returning to the smoke after several years - I did leave a lasting legacy.
Having gone incognito on football hooligan sites for banter etc I thought how about starting a football prediction league - and somehow I stumbled upon THE USUAL.
In no time it was born - a divine appointment
Founder members included Wessex and Durham along with the late BarsidePete RIP
We had just 6.
Then it exploded ....
Mr Happy 😃. Is his name
Your president ...
Bless you all and now it is in the safe hands of a Col U diehard MFB and our best player ever- it will continue forever I should imagine ..
