  1. I have been invited onto Ross Ellis show this weekend to discuss Helston and Women’s Football in general. Another good opportunity to showcase the game and I would like to express my gratitude to @Dave Deacon for initially inviting me on the Podcast and giving us that initial exposure that allows Helston Women’s team and Women’s Football in Cornwall in general to get a little more coverage.

  2. Being sick to death of watching Premier League football on TV with all its diving (cheating), spitting, snot blowing and childish antics, yesterday I watched the Rugby Union match between Exeter Chiefs and Lyon in the Heineken Cup. What a great game of rugby. It was a ferocious - fast flowing game with rugby skills at their very best, and first class entertainment. No cheating, swearing at the officials or lunatic histrionics - just pure, hard and fierce rugby of the highest quality. A closely fought match with many tries scored, but no quarter given by either side. Exeter Chiefs won the

  3. Some wonderful games over the Easter weekend, the quarter finals look like mouthwatering prospects with Exeter v Leinster being something to look forward to. Despite the mega squads that Clermont, La Rochelle and Racing 92 have assembled, I fancy the relentless Chiefs retaining their title. While the Six Nations is pretty special, with the historical and national side certainly giving it plenty of flavour (especially this season), the Champions Cup rugby probably surpasses it for depth,quality and intensity.

    ECPL Cup

    Why didn’t they enter the ECPL cup if they wanted to play football seeing as they are in that league and not the Duchy , less travelling possibly ?

    Friendly matches

    Would it be Green and Black or just an off grey colour - the St Austell strip that has been through the wash a few too many times? Lol

  6. Our age has much to do with it Brian I'm sure. Yes, I agree Lingard is a good player .. but something else when it comes to celebrating a goal scored. Perhaps peer pressure ie, all or most of the other players do it, or something akin to it, maybe the answer. Personally I detest these goal celebrations. Dancing around the corner flag, dancing with his team mates, pulling ugly or stupid faces and all the other childish antics. Where on earth did all this come from ... no, I don't want to know ! They just need to grow up.

  7. I can't disagree with anything Darren says either, but it still seems strange to see an individual whose reputation and outside interests ( clothing design etc ) are based at least in part on a " cool " reputation and " street cred " would run around gurning and sticking his tongue out !! I quite like Lingard as a player and he comes across as a decent enough lad but the celebration bit baffles me Perhaps it's our age

    Goal celebrations.

    Football changed in 1992. It became an entertainment business rather than a sport. TV deals went through the roof, ticket prices went sky high as the rulers of the game tried to get rid of the working class from the terraces to make it a more family spectacle. I don't like it that much to be honest with you, but I have no problem with footballers earning what they do. Shall we talk about movie stars earning millions for a film?? Or bankers getting millions of pounds in bonuses? Players try to gain the advantage in any way possible, especially knowing they can influence a refe

    Goal celebrations.

    Again - Lingard is supposed to be an adult. His antics suggest otherwise. But he's not alone in these antics, 90% of them are at it. What bugs me also, is that these players get paid more per week, than the Prime Minister gets in a year. I give up, I'll watch the rugby instead - and live local football when it starts again.

  12. Cheers Asterix ! Shayners is a top man. Did wonders down west, he did. Half of St Just running round with Troon genes now ! Signing those Troon boys caused the biggest shift in the local population since the Spaniards burned Penzance in the sixteenth century ! Legends ! Tell him to ask Matt Harris when he's going to put the stand back up!

  13. Saw a funny thing yesterday , my neighbour had a problem with his central heating boiler . The plumber turned up and 20 minutes later came running out of the house , slid on his knees on the lawn , grabbed the neighbours standard rose bush and air guitared and then ran round with his thumb in his mouth . I said to my neighbour " what's up with him ?" he replied " he's just managed to get the fuel control valve out of the boiler but he's still got to fix the rest of it "

    What has happened?

    Refused to carry on fulfilling their fixtures basically Nige, saying they couldn’t afford too without crowds. All this seasons results expunged, a £40’000 fine and a 12 point deduction for the start of next season from the National League as far as i know mate
