  1. No. The Chaddy End is the Home End. The Zig-a-Zag-a song fkin says so......
  2. ...I've noticed Shrewsbury playing him Centre Half on more than one occasion this season.....
  3. I know.... was just speaking out aloud. Does Marco fancy swapping it back, so long as we can get some booze and food in their somehow....?
  4. The Chaddy End will always be the Home End to me Billy.
  5. 50% of which is owed to Everton. Just like 50% of any fee received for Hunt would be owed to Brighton. Corney deals.
  6. ....Preston, Sunderland & Stoke also rumoured by some. Best thing we could do is encourage a bit of an auction.
  7. He seemed to be enjoying the notoriety from what I could see though....
  8. This thread by the impressive owner of Accy Stanley is well worth a read....
  9. I’d like someone to tell me what happened to Sohny Sefil’s loan spell at Ashton United? One assumes this is who Marco wanted to play in place of Clarke.....!?!
  10. It was more than suggested.... Scholes practically said so in his BT Sport interview. Do you not think it would be a little more difficult - without attracting more negative attention for himself - for AL to insist on it following Scholes’ departure.... and subsequently impossible given the run we’ve been on. We’ll know where they both stand/their relationship stands after the Northampton game.
  11. Notts County, 4th game of the 1994/95 season after we'd been relegated from the Premier League. Won 3-1. Sean McCarthy hat-trick. Was as sure as I could be we were going straight back up after this game. We lost the next 4 on the bounce and I went to every one.... in fact, I only missed 1 of the first 11.
  12. Bloody hell, what a shame that's so young. I remember him as a tough no-nonsense centre half. Struggled a bit on the plastic from what I remember though, not quite quick enough. Did we get him from Hull? I seem to remember us nicking a few players off them during that time. Bunn & Jobson as well.
  13. 👍 The official club Twitter account only joined Twitter on 22nd Feb 2011, which was exactly 1 week after this game. Interesting to note that there were c1,200 more home fans in for a game that cost £2 vs one that was Free. We were 7th in League One in Dickov's fist season in Feb 2011 compared to 2nd bottom v Peterborough during Shezurrection II in Jan 2017. Just shows you what could happen with on-field success. Imagine if that was coupled with good governance?
  14. ....it's also pretty normal to chose a safer path to reach that height.... & he might want to run a Premier League Academy?
  15. We had 6,782 home fans in midweek when it was free to get in v Peterborough in 2016/17 There were 8,564 in total [dunno Home?] for another midweek v Carlisle in 2010/11 when is was £2 to get in.
  16. Why, until club legend Tony Philliskirk was fired, the average tenure of the Academy head was over a decade. The average tenure of the seniors was about 10 weeks.
  17. Spot on. The Scholes saga publicly damaged him. The Wellens, Rhodes & Bunn saga's merely add weight to Scholes' public proclamations. He's [AL] attempted to refute Scholes' claims.... the Trust have openly written to him..... he replied [late] and offered to meet only after the season has finished. Season ticket sales are reportedly down. He appears to be gambling everything on the long shot of promotion to solve his problems..... as opposed to addressing the governance issues raised in the Trust's letter, which could solve his problems, regardless of on-field performance.
  18. Last 3 visits to Exeter, all in League 1; 2011/12 Exeter 2 Latics 0 2010/11 Exeter 2 Latics 0 2009/10 Exeter 1 Latics 1 Last time we won there Nick Henry scored the winner when we were in the Premier League. Last time we won there in the League, was in our 4th division promotion season in 1970/71. 🙏
  19. His hand might be forced if the youth set up is disbanded & Mo Lemsagam runs the foreign import reserves. Head Coach or out of work. This all assumes of course HMRC get paid.
  20. I know.... that why I’m asking. A flat cap is a heavy piece of ammo in 23 degrees for a native. Reckon he can handle 40? (I wouldn’t know - never seen without it on, no matter what the weather)
  21. Is it sewn in to his head? I wonder how hot it’s got to be for him to take it off?
  22. Spot on this. He looked class today. I went to Cheltenham. He was a liability for much if it.
  23. Mr Bipolar is OWTB’s very own @oafcprozac and I agree with the sentiment of his post. Mansfield last competed in the 3rd tier 17 seasons ago, having spent 5 of those in the conference and appear to have spent only 1 season in the 2nd tier in their history. It would indeed be depressing as fook watching a team with such a record taking their place above us in the Football League, just like Accrington, Rochdale, Wycombe, Burton, Fleetwood.
