    Haha πŸ˜† Celtic would be the only team who could hold their own in the Premier league Dave. Think they would get quite a few points at home. Would say the top half of the Premier league would compare to the Championship. Aberdeen, Hibernian, Hearts and possibly Motherwell on their day. The bottom half of the Prem more like league 1. Would say the likes of Dundee, Accies, Kilmarnock be on a par with Argyle. The Championship with the likes of Dundee Utd, Partick Thistle, Falkirk etc is more bottom end League 1/ League 2 standard. League 1 and 2 would be non league in England as its semi pro. Know the chairmen at Albion Rovers and Stirling Albion and the players are on Β£200-300 a week in those leagues Dave. Would say the tempo up there is faster and more physical in general but not quite as technical as England. Seen some cracking games up there over the years though mate πŸ‘βš½οΈ

    Yeah that’s not really Scottish football as a whole though Dave. I agree Celtic are 20 points better than anyone else in the Premier league but I’ve watched some really good matches up there in the lower divisions including the Highland and Lowland leagues and it’s really competitive. Clubs like Dundee United can’t get out the Championship and Rangers took a couple of attempts. It’s decent football and very physical, should take the mrs up there for a little holiday and have a look Dave, reckon you would be surprised at the standard mate πŸ‘

    Great move for Cody Dave! The ground only 8 miles from the bro and sis in laws so will pop over and watch him next season. Tom Owen-Evans signed for Falkirk as well, half hour up the road. Both lovely little new stadiums, hope the lads do well, no more than Cody deserves after his performances last season. Watched a lot of Scottish football and I reckon he will do really well. Tom next maybe!? πŸ€”
  4. Like the new badge!! πŸ‘. Glad the cathedral is back in, got to have that!! Always reminds me of home as I’m sure it does for any Truro boy. Promoting the Cornwall flag as well spot on when City are travelling all over the south of England πŸ‘ Still not sure what a tiger has got to do with Truro though!?! 13 mile trek from Newquay zoo!! πŸ˜€ Think the club should β€œpaws” on that one! πŸ˜‚
  5. 15 years ago this September since the great man left us Mike. Hard to believe really, not a day goes by where he’s not in our thoughts. George Turbo Torrance does a great job arranging the fixtures for Daves tournament every pre season. Hope the clubs put out strong sides, Dave was a legend on and off the pitch, great to see his name live on in Cornish football ⚽️ πŸ‘Œ
  6. Think that might not just be a rumour!? Be a shame after the great job Macca did this season. Would have thought some great players be up for grabs for the vultures, young Cam Turner is improving all the time, a really silky midfielder and the talented Jack Bray-Evans who’s a match winner on his day. DannyO still a top player to have around any club on and off the pitch, great example and can still play a bit getting man of the match most weeks last season! Hope it is a rumour though and Macca stays and carries on the good work. Up the Peppermints πŸ‘βš½οΈ
  7. Well explained Dave!! I quite like the look of it if that’s the case. Think it might work better with less teams in the lower leagues with no floodlights, might not get the crazy fixture schedule that a lot of teams were faced with at the end of this season with our ridiculous wet winter we had. As Dave mentioned the Combo and ECPL leagues still look similar and competitive. Maybe promote 4 teams at the end of the Trelawny season to make both leagues up to 16. Give the chance for good clubs like Holmans and Goonhavern the chance to bounce straight back up with two others maybe? At first glance think it will work well, especially in the Premier league, lot of very good Cornish teams with good facilities these days including floodlights and to be honest it’s only missing Tavistock as Parkway were up anyway. πŸ‘βš½οΈ
  8. Good luck to Damo!! πŸ‘βš½ Great first job, a club like St.Austell that he knows well. With Parkway promoted, think the league will be wide open and well contested next season! πŸ‘

    Perkins Matthews.

    Following on after his career he had a son to make him very proud as well Tom. An inspiration to his team mates on and off the field who puts 100% into anything he does and my dads favourite player (centre halves club)! Cherish the memories mate πŸ‘βš½οΈ

    I’m still waiting patiently Sticker!!! There was talk of something at the end of last season but I know they are busy people at the County FA!! I did get an invite to last seasons Senior Cup final at Helston and the tea and choccy biscuits went down well πŸ‘ I had 52 games for Cornwall over the years but there were no caps back then so I was secretly hoping for a Cornwall cap with maybe 2000 on it!?! πŸ‘Œ Alas I live in hope! πŸ˜€βš½οΈ Superb from Nick and Michelle, all that loyalty to one club over 3 decades is amazing πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘β€οΈπŸ–€

    Fergie, Wenger, now Nick!!! Bout 75 years service to one club between them!! Had the pleasure of playing for Nick for a couple of seasons after I stepped down from senior football. Enjoyed it every bit as much and had some great times! Echo all that’s been said by the lads, be surprised if we ever see the like of Nick and Michelle again to be honest. Lovely people, put in thousands of hours for the Frogs, unbelievable commitment!! Reckon we should all chip in and build a statue of them both just inside the gate at the Richard Jory Fields! πŸ‘Œβš½οΈ Absolute legends, hope you enjoy the rest on a Saturday Nick and Michelle, no one deserves it more πŸ‘πŸ‘Œβš½οΈπŸ†πŸ‘πŸΌ Hope the Cornwall FA does a little something in recognition for two great people x
  14. Jarvo has brought through some really talented players in his time at Penryn, would like to know how many have gone on to be first team regulars? Always talks sense win or lose and can always see the bigger picture, liked his teams to play football the right way. No mean player in his day himself, will miss our Combo chats on a Saturday. All the best and enjoy the rest Jarvo! πŸ‘πŸ‘Œβš½οΈ
  15. Really enjoyed today!! Fantastic to see so many of the old Town faces in the crowd! Reckon there was about 300/400 there and about 50 from Tavi!! Thought the lads really deserved it, looked fit and lively and took the game to Tavi who I thought went ahead against the run of play when Town just switched off from a free kick. Superb volley from Jordy for the equaliser and when Luke blocked a clearance to see the ball fly in the net it was magic! Had the smile wiped off my face by Sullivan who hit a worldy to take the game to extra time though. Looked like Tavi might go on and win it from there dominating the first half of extra time but the boys dug in and we scored against the run of play this time just virtually before the half time of extra time whistle. A cock up at the back saw Jordy pounce to complete his hat-trick, thought he was a right old handful all game getting in behind their defence for two hours even when he was a bit isolated up top, some shift mate!!! πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ Absolutely superb to see some of the F Troop legends at the game as well, making a right old racket second half, thanks to big Rick and the lads for singing a few old Rappo songs as well, made an old cripple very happy! Best days and memories of my life, thanks lads. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜€πŸ‘ Massive congrats to Westy, Milchy and Charlie for putting that young side together and getting them to play like that, if I wasn’t here at work I would have had a couple shandies tonight! Falmouth boys that love the club and will always be remembered for today. That’s the end of my break but still smiling 9 hours later!! All roads lead to Bickland Park a wise man (and pissed up man) once said!!! πŸ†πŸ’›πŸ–€
