    I think said person would have to be potentially in NZ (South Island) or even maybe the Falklands? .. if the latter is the case, I claim Jan - May 96 ha ha Edit : just checked on a website and i was kinda right! For populations of 100k+ it's Dunedin NZ (19,004 kms) with the 1million + as Auckland NZ (18,133 kms) So there's a few that have answered my initial posts that know people in that locality to claim that 'title' lol

    Thanks for all the helps ... Christchurch is on the South Island - and as much as I know that if my parents managed to get from Royton to Howick, it's possible that someone could travel north from the South Island! .. my dad is a complete eeejut at times, chats away with someone, tells them his 'story' but doesn't bother to ask theirs! He got the impression (please see above statement) that they were locals - Howick is about the size of Royton so being across from Auckland City is believable? Ah well ... maybe next time!
  3. I've been meaning to ask - who's the Latics fan that my dad was chatting to in Howick, New Zealand a couple of weeks ago?

    New Manager Thread

    If you watch the 1st series of that Salford City, quite early on during a meeting he has a little moan and says " what the f**k have we bought a football club for? " or something along those lines! We don't need some ex premier league footballer who's bored, we need someone that wants to put his all into it! He doesn't strike me as being 100% committed to us ..

    Fane

    Yeah fair point, he may be abroad but he's done plenty through the season whilst he's been over here! Who knows, may have always been a passenger, but even looking at the still (I've watched the clip) shows he's got is seat belt behind his head and not across his chest! Ah well each to their own

    Fane

    As much as I've enjoyed this lad playing for us - and I sincerely believe he's given his all in games ... Is he a complete idiot going around driving and sending Instagram clips to whoever's interested? There's enough dickheads driving along without some bloke rattling away to his phone whilst driving!

    I just hope whoever makes them plans to make a few 'bigger' sizes than the tangerine ones!

    Kean Bryan Returns

    Hence the last sentence ha ha

    Kean Bryan Returns

    Probably nothing more than a final sign off before he returns to them - ie it probably doesn't bode well to simply return players to their clubs with a note saying "sorry we broke him!" .. That said, and this is literally a pie in the sky comment .. does anyone really believe he'll pull on a sky blue shirt anytime soon? They're not that kind of club anymore imho! .. maybe he's sat down with someone (Agent/RW/PG/whoever) and realises he needs to put himself in the shop window a bit! I know our 'window' needs more than just cleaning .. but he may believe that he's better getting a decent - this is the tricky bit - season under his belt having been told he's a guarantee on the team sheet? Who knows? Is it too early to dream yet?

    The Pitch

    Maybe they've/they'll take up what's left of the grass and lay down the sand for a bedding/drainage layer then put soil/turf on top? I've literally no idea about grass as mine's artificial .. so who knows what the sand is for lol
