  1. Good luck from me and credit for giving it a go , good team you have and play some very good football , it just proves that the combo league has improved over the last two to three seasons and clubs are willing to seek promotion and try to pit their skills at the next level . Just look at Ludgvan and Wendron both doing well in the Swpl .

    We're all kids really
  3. Now now older play nicely or no fag ash and chips for you .
  4. Ospina kept the score down , he played out of his skin , Maitland , played well but the rest let the club down and the fans , the so called senior players with over 600 premiership league appearances between them , the defence were shown up by an eighteen years old championship player , Forrest average age was less than Arsenal and the caretaker manager out thought Arsene . The better side won on the day and could have scored more but for the keeper , agree with Mangle not arrogance from Arsene but he gambled and it failed badly so as manager he carries the can and reserves the stick especially on 8 million squid a year .

  6. Paying Players

    Haven't mentioned any team or how recent or insinuated which clubs were involved .
  7. Paying Players

    Sorry Keith but it does go on , recently a team played against Hayle and after the game there were envelopes left in the changing room , have that from a very reliable source . Several seasons back an away fixture in the senior cup , my mate saw several opposition players being given envelopes in the club house , having had a few sips of ale , he tapped one of them on the shoulder and asked what was in the envelope he replied what was it to him , he replied he worked for the inland revenue ( he didn't ) and had he declare it , quickly he moved over to the other players and they all looked pretty worried and kept glancing over to my mate , who was by this time p.....ng himself .
  8. Keep it coming , have broad shoulders , have to at the moment 😱
  9. Well at least have some experience on the bench. And we are the cupholders , Arsene has picked the team ,it failed badly , time has come for him to step down at the season end and bring in some fresh ideas to move the club forward .His time is over he has been a big part of Arsenal history but his tactics are no longer good enough at the top level and it pains me to say that . Trouble is some fans still think he can still cut it at the top level but in my opinion he can't . Very good older , you have been a bit quiet recently
  10. this has to one of the most embarrassing defeats under Arsene. Forrest were the better side

  12. I would like to believe what you say , but how many players at the top level of they don't like a manager basically disruptive to a squad , eg Anelka when at Arsenal .
  13. Now that is a big statement ! Common Sense ? Now what you say might make sense to some but to others it might not , so each person can interpret Common sense differently , I know baffling but just my take on it . Back to sin bins, anything that can help the game and give refs an option to maybe take the heat out of a situation is a good tool surely , hope the combo takes it on board as it might shut one or two up in the league who questions everything during a game , funny a few seasons back there was raised eyebrows about rolling subs now nobody takes any notice .
  14. No chance today if any manager went to a player like that today they would be on to their agent and get a transfer , I don't think when Jimmy Hill helped to abolish to maximum wage he thought the power would end up with players and their agents .
  15. No promotion?

    Sorry forgot Madron x2 teams . In the not to distance future , I can see that you can pay for a televised season ticket for which ever team you support and can watch any of their games live , a bit like pay per view for your favorite boxer .
  16. No promotion?

    BHD you are right , a lot of teams from the West penwith leagues joined the old mining league as teams were getting less and less and teams were playing each other several times in various cup games to get matches . From memory teams that made up the West Penwith / Amor shield were , Mousehole (2 ) Marazion (2) St Buryan (2) Sennen Ludgvan(2) Gulval (2) Longrock (2) Penwith social club , Penzance 3rds, Porthcurnoe exiles , St.Just , Pendeen , Rosudgeon (2) Hayle , some short lived teams were Shirehorse, Heamoor ., At one stage Longrock had three teams one in West Penwith , Amor and mining leagues but this didn't last for long . The above list of teams most have now folded so this is not a new problem , the main difference was players didn't change clubs to often .
  17. Transfer window about to open , Liverpool out the blocks with 75 million for **** Van Dyke, the premiership has gone mad , which club will be the first to pay a 100 million in the premiership ? Crazy world of football , I can remember when Arsenal paid 333 thousand for Malcom Macdonald , .Trevor Francis the first 1 million pound player in 1978 bought by a certain Brian Clough , how much longer can football sustain this amount of money .
  18. Hayle v Caharrack

    You could be right there , the first time the combo side has played a game on it but the reserves and third team have both hosted games this season .
  19. Thanks Keith and a happy and healthy New Year to yourself and all fellow posters 🎺
  20. Tottenham Hotspur

    Please don't copy Mangle 😈 Now that would be a miracle Older as Arsenal have the record for being in the top flight 😇
  21. Tottenham Hotspur

    Ok sss , Middlesex finest , here goes who has won most FA cups ? When was the last league title for spurs , when was your last trophy ? And at present you are just above a under performing Arsenal on goal difference . So that is probably your clubs ambition at present .Arsenal from the board is to make money . So while gooners fans are unhappy you seem to be happy with your lot .
  22. So don't listen to them , mind you when you play on your main pitch the home fans can shall we say are not the most genteel of folks to the opposition .
  23. Hayle v Caharrack

    A first for Hayle combo , pity a loss . The ball seems to move a bit quicker but both sides got to grips with it very early on , and at least both teams got a game this afternoon .
  24. Hayle 0-4 carharrack ,0-2 halftime , approx 50 watching , played on the 3 g pitch , first time for the combo team this season , Carharrack deserved winners more clinical in front of goal , Hayle made some chances but didn't breach the defense , some good football on show and we'll reffed by George in the middle , played advantage and if none pulled it back for the free kick , played in a good spirit overall , apart from the usual suspects Moaning about descions , just wish players would play to the whistle and get on with their game . A bit of disagreement over in the dug outs late on about a flag for offside , from the away team but advantage was given to them and the ball was played out of danger so no harm done . Some good passing on show from both teams but Hayle lacked the cutting edge up front .
