A new signing....Yeah!
at 17:01 22 Aug 2019

Calm down everyone. A new goalkeeping coach. What a waste of money. Do we really need one. Gerken is 36, been about for years and could easily pass on his experience to our younger keepers.
Use our newly acquired money wisely please.

They think it's all over...
at 18:57 23 Jun 2019

It is now...football as we knew it.
Just watched England v Macaroons. What a disaster totally ruined by delays for VAR. What happened to the prime rule of football, the referees decision is final..huh.
Accept that VAR can be used for obvious mistakes but when they use it and even the TV commentator suggests than an obvious penalty to England will probably be turned down as it would cause massive problems on the field. And the tackle 8 minutes into injury time? Red card every time without the use of six different TV views.
Today made me think if it is worth watching further games that is now totally controlled by invisible people hidden away in TV cabins uninterested in any emphasis on the game to a decision they take ...allegedly on behalf of the referee.

Europa League Final

Two English Premier teams containing...
ONE English player between them......
Not good enough but will it be much better Sarurday. I doubt it though. Something has to be done to restore English national football.

Pre-season.
at 17:40 26 May 2019

I see we are really looking to test ourselves in pre-season.
Tuesday 9th July - Dulwich Hamlet - Away
Tuesday 16th July - Wealdstone - Away
Friday 19th July - Ipswich Town - Home
Saturday 27th July - Dover Athletic - Away
Obviously one tricky fixture there though.
Yep.. Wealdstone.

What did you do Saturday?
at 18:23 12 May 2019

After the euphoria of the first half last Saturday but ultimately the late disappointment, what did you find to do this weekend guys...forgetting Premier league for which I have absolutely no interest being 90% foreign players and managers.
Well, Saturday serious shopping trip with Mrs Gerry (honestly) then a bowls match in the afternoon (again..honestly, playing not watching, and yes I'm old enough for bowls..just.) followed by a nice meal out in the evening. Sunday a pleasant and long walk along local sandy beach, uplifting but chilly.
So,that's my story,what's yours?
And when does the season start again? I'm bored already.

VAR? What a joke.
at 21:53 16 Mar 2019

No VAR at Swansea v City. Both the penalty and third goal would have proved goals should not have counted.

VAR at Wolves v United. Red card rescinded to yellow for United. Just seen the tackle and it's a brutal tackle, well worth the red card so cant believe it was overturned.

I still believe that the referee should be the only arbiter of fact on the pitch and the fact it is instantaneous means (hopefully) the "high" standing of the team is irrelevant. In both cases tonight VAR or no VAR worked in favour of the "top" teams.

How can you have two quarter finals, one with VAR and one without? Unbelievable. Kick it into touch and go back to the good old referee, or..referee the game from the stands with a TV screen. Phew...feel better now.

FG thread ... Is it me...
at 18:51 12 Mar 2019

...but has our defence tightened up since McG decided to return Eastman to his rightful place in the centre of defence? Hopefully we will find his name on the teamsheet this evening but nothing is ever certain with our method of team selection.

Eastman in the team...good omen.

Pretty much team selection as expected. Please do not go 1-0 up early as we are totally unable to get through a match defending it.
Good to see Junior on the bench. Circumstances permitting, I hope he gets a "reasonable" run out but I am taking bets on him coming on around 88 minutes, aka Macca Bonne. Nobody, even a genius, is unlikely to perform under those circumstances. Grumble over....now come on U's, today is ultra important. No pressure then.

Can't help thinking that the game would vastly improve if they made the football shirts totally without sleeves...not even the hole for the arms...or maybe just play in straight jackets. Would solve so many problems that are rife, especially in the Prem.

Port Vale today...

Same old same old team announced. Hopefully they can pull themselves together but would have hoped to have seen "new blood" to re-invigorate the team. Obviously Mr McG knows better. Next couple of hours are fundamental to the rest of our season.

What do I know? Senior puts us 1 up. (but remember last week!)

And again. Harry Pell ...now 2 up. Lots of shots, hope it continues.

A "No Stress" weekend.

Enjoy it guys.
What a nice thought to have no worry or stress this weekend about the U's: should we maybe drop out of the auto promotion places; or maybe foul up a winning position...its been known!
Losing in the FAC first round gives us the opportunity to relax and enjoy other's pain...Ippy maybe?

Concentrating on the league then!
at 21:13 13 Nov 2018

Out of two cups in four days continues our poor performance recently in cup competitions. Let us hope that our lighter work load in the coming weeks will be reflected in our league form although I am a believer in winning breeds more winning be it cup or league.
Oh well, back to league action Saturday and not an easy one.
