  1. Sorry Older, Mr. H has obviously been reading my posts!!!
  2. Q). How do footballers keep their cool during a match? A) They stand near the fans! Boom boom!🦊
  3. Spot on 100%, that’s why I’ve been advocating the roll over, so we don’t get caught out again by a new winter variant as some virologists are predicting. But no, the FA will plod on as usual, losing the plot as they look backwards over their shoulders rather than forwards to what might be coming (Oh no, I’m beginning to sound like BIG AL again!).
  4. Don’t despair 100%, the FA will sort it all out. Hmmm, on second thoughts, do despair!
  5. Consistency has never been a strong point with human beings, particularly when they’re given power! What do they say? Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely!
  6. While the England football team were visiting Brazil for the World Cup they went to visit a local orphanage. ”It was heart-breaking seeing their sad little faces with no hope” said João, aged 6!
  7. I’m amazed that Truro have the finances to pay (probably furlough) their squad of players and a league quality manager along with all the other outgoings that don’t disappear just because there’s a pandemic. They obviously have a more stable financial position than in previous incarnations, but even so, when you see established Clubs several leagues above them struggle and fail it’s surprising that, as a little club in the far flung west of the country, they’re able to carry on.
  8. Don’t all these opinions show that we need more technology to aid hard pressed referees, not less. It just has to work! Is that too much to ask? (I eagerly anticipate a “yes” from someone!)
  9. I do hope you’re right Teflon, at least about the players. St. Blazey have been east of the Tamar for far too many years as far as the playing squad are concerned, the managers as well on many occasions. They used to train in Devon a couple of years back to save anyone having to travel!
  10. Keith, I am sorry if I offended you or indeed anybody else. I specifically didn’t mention which God I was referring to, although from the context it would certainly be monoatheistic which could still cover a number of world religions. Either way, if there is a god, and I’m still on the fence on that one, I would certainly hope that he/she has a sense of humour.
  11. Up in the far beyond, God and the Devil were having yet another dispute. “Let us settle it with a football match” said Satan. “You’re on”, said the all-mighty, “but why? Up in heaven we have all the very best players!” “Aha”, replied the evil one “but we have all the referees!”
  12. To all the “Start again next season” warriors: Think mutations, the Scientists are already developing a new vaccine to combat the new variants that the current vaccines won’t stop completely, they haven’t started on a vaccine for the mutations that haven’t happened yet (But they will). Expect regular winter lockdowns and seasonal jabs for the foreseeable future. Why start yet another season which might end in a third abandonment? Roll over this season, arrange a COVID Cup to fill the gaps and let’s see if we can play a season to conclusion! Oh, and just for Older and his gang, look a
  13. Once you’ve made a stand you’ve got to stick with it or you’ll be seen as woolly minded. Enough sports and sportspeople have made their opinions on discrimination clear without the need to publicly discriminate between the causes you support, be it racism, sexism, homophobia or any other ism’s and the like. Enough is enough, the point has been proved, I think it’s safe to get off the knee and go for a Hakka, that’ll wind up the players, the opposition and the fans. Just tell everyone that it’s a pan-phobia support stance!
  14. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU AS INTERESTING YOU DO YOU’VE KEPT US SANE THROUGH THE PANDEMIC HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU 💥🍸🍾🎂1️⃣ YEAR OLD TODAY🎂🍾🥂💥 NEARLY 888 POSTS (certainly will be before the day is out) and congratulations to Older, the instigator with nearly 500 gems of knowledge. Must be some records on there!
  15. I was dozing a couple of hours ago, The cat came in and sat in my lap. I thought I’d wet myself🛋🐈🌧❗️
  16. Just pop up to Scotland with an “I ♥️ Boris” badge on, you’ll see (and feel) grade A animosity🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿. Glasgow kiss anyone 🤛❗️
  17. I quite agree PP, since when have new entities been allowed to jump straight into senior football without an apprenticeship in the lower leagues, particularly when they’re up against teams who have done it the hard (proper) way! What happens if they don’t get in? Have they applied to join any other leagues, or will they fade away and try again next year? Agree with you too WOTP, absurd to try to cram another team on to your pitch. They should apply to the Trelawny league and take their chances on a pitch at Malpas!
  18. Incidentally, does anybody know if the CONIFA Cup competitions are seeded❓
  19. You are an Englishman/woman firstly, if your birth certificate says so, and secondly, if you pay your taxes in full and on time!
  20. We’re overdue a monsoon season Older. Almost semi-tropical! It’s a jungle out there⛈🦍🌳🐆🌴🦧☀️️(or will be soon)❗️
  21. My goodness Keith, you are absolutely the fount of all knowledge of all things Ladies football (I wouldn’t have known that (or many other things) without you. Incidentally do you know if Cornwall (men and women) have dispensation from the F.A. to play if (the rules are still in force by then)?
  22. Yep Follower, both opponents in group C are from the South Caucasus (South Ossetia, Georgia. Artsakh, South-West Azerbaijan), but they’ll be sitting at home thinking Cornwall (or Kernow), I’ll have to look that up............Ahh tiny little place on the edge of England, they don’t even have a league football club! EASEEEY. A, seems to be the group of death (based only on the fact that I’ve heard of them all!) and it contains the hosts. I wonder if the teams were seeded?
  23. Gee thanks Dave, couldn’t you have just left it for a day or two before battering me with further evidence of my ignorance? Back to the depths of Google/Wikipedia 📖📚‼️
  24. Thanks Roy, being a mid-Cornwaller I don’t get news from darkest Falmouth and beyond, but am impressed, both with his journalism and your knowledge. Perhaps I should just shut up about things I know nothing about (it’ll never happen)!
