lolz ...

Does that clown post on here? Anyone would think he was some miserable old sod dribbling into his Thermos of soup from the confines of the Lower West stand rather than a young man.

Somebody expose this fraud immediately

Actually ashamed to admit I found this one mildly amusing.

Imagine if we got relegated with that :lol:

He's a very low risk signing and I'd say a fairly big improvement on McShane. Would be sensible to make Liam Moore the new permanent captain with McShane seemingly out for a considerable period.

I quite enjoyed this

As per my earlier posting, you have to be of a certain age (for both of your cryptic postings).....and we are.

You have to be of a certain age to appreciate that one.


Indeed, I'm just glad there is someone of a certain age who does appreciate it. I'm wasted on here.


I was old enough to appreciate it on Page 1.

Let's hope he makes a better start than Upson did.

Apologies for not giving you the credit-I blame Norfolk for not picking up on it first. :wink:

BTW isn't it great when your club signs a player that you actually like.?
I felt the same about Barrow but might have to go back to McCleary and much earlier to Jamie Cureton for feeling that way before.
Possibly did about Grabban but after a couple of games saw that he had become soft since his bad injury.

Let's hope it's not a case of three up two down on his debut.
