Oh…..it was you!

In troubling times I'm calling on your football memories

Someone mentioned ’74 which would be great. I was two so not really tuning in.

In troubling times I'm calling on your football memories

Thoroughly enjoyable read. Great stuff Buddy. What I would have given to be there. Although I was only 7 at the time. Really sad when we lost to Liverpool in 2006 after leading twice. My Dad was dying a pretty slow and painful death at the time and we looked to have it won. Gerrard produced some sheer magic.

Just watched the 1987 FA Cup celebrity game. Amazing stuff.

And for those people playing along at home, Mike Tuckerman has selected a draw between the Jets and City on Monday night.

The Roar's A-League expert tips and predictions: Round 24 (sort of!)

City by 2 or 3. They were my tip for the title by the length of the straight. When Sydney lost some their talent overseas it became a one horse race. Trust me, mortgage the house and get on at anything more than $1.40. Doubt you’ll get that but ya never now.

The David’s have not been good for the clarets. Although after 40 odd years of pain, I’m a little non-plussed. ‘Shoot me now’ is officially the most quoted phrase at the Olympic Stadium.

They are one of twenty teams to not win the league this season. Funny stuff really. West Ham were about to charge.

Yeah, such a shame.

I think I predicted them as second or third for another publication at the start of the season. I really thought they would be a competitive side this season. Pickett is my fave, best left footed cross in the country in my view.

Wife gets a little annoyed when I do that stuff. Especially with a commentary accent.

He is God though…..unfair advantage.

A slow start is more than acceptable for a new manager with a new squad. Have a look at the last ten weeks and note that Brisbane have a fair claim on the championship. As good as anyone statistically.

Shame they didn’t win the league, they were well in front.

Australian football in a nutshell. Show great promise and farewell. Not ideal or terrible, just the way things are.

You should and I know are, proud of your boys this season. The girls let you down a bit. I thought they would do better. Hot on Sydney FC’s heels if the win the next 1 or 2. A great transformation up north. PS I’ll send through my gambling stats on them at season’s end. I don’t think they will be too bad.

Pig-headedness. Can’t see it happening. Clause 66 will be enacted for the 4th time in history.

Olympic organisers insist Tokyo games will go ahead

THE form team right now and they have CCM this week. Top four?

And leading.

This is getting juicy, I love it. Will Mike fold and jump on the City train or hold firm?

I’ve tipped your boys. Trust me, I’m an expert when the Roar are involved! 😂 😂

Piscopo has really impressed me. Always loved McGree and Thurgate has some nice talent. If McGree does head abroad again, we’ll never, ever see the best of him. Class act in my view.

A-League parity causes havoc in a frantic run to the finals

Mmmmm, surprising. Oh well, just opens the door for the Hammers charge into the top six with others weakening. ⚽ ⚽ 😛 😛

Excellent FA Cup result this morning. Great news to wake up to. Did they play the B squad?
