Re: Elvis....42 years since his death

I was in the Hop with my basketball mates, when a guy came up and said Elvis was dead. The whole pub, and it was busy, tried to cram into the back room where the television was to try and see if it was true.

Re: England vs Australia 2nd test

Nasser Hussein called the dismissal after he had been hit on the head. Basically saying he will try and paddle sweep the ball down on the leg side, which brings caught off the glove into play. Good call.

Re: ARTICLE: First Turf Moor floodlights switched on

I was on the game, as a 10 year old, with a couple of pals. I don't honestly remember anything about the game as such, though I do remember having to keep looking up at the many individual lamps shining so brightly in the night sky, illuminating my favourite place on Earth, Turf Moor.

Re: MIGHTY CLARETS versus Sainthampton

As usual our ball retention is poor, hence my call earlier for a fit Drinkwater. However, the conditions aren't easy, let's hope we pull it round in the second half.

Drinkwater, to me, would be like signing Joey Barton, a class act and simply better than what we have at the moment. If we sign Drinkwater, keep Tarks, plu...

Re: England v Australia 1st Ashes Test

The biggest issue is the batting. To be fair to Root, losing Anderson after 4 overs has had a massive impact on this match. Regarding our so called spinners, Moeen is simply not a test match spin bowler, I actually thought Denley bowled better than he did.

Re: England v Australia 1st Ashes Test

I've said it before, this test batting line up can not play under pressure (plus they simply aren't good enough). We simply don't have a Ken Barrington, Geoff Boycott, Graham Gooch or Alistair Cooke etc. It will be interesting to see what the selectors do for the next test.

Re: " Sunday Times ", Premier League predictions ...

I would feel more confident if we had signed a couple of midfielders who know how to retain the ball. A midfield of Westwood and Cork/Hendrick worries me: we will be overrun in midfield even by the likes of Soton, Palace, Newcastle etc.

Re: Old photograph of Harry Potts Way

My dad used to stand on the old long side when it was cinders and slag. He used to have to wear ankle covering boots because he said when it rained heavily, his feet used to sink down into the top surface and he would actually slide forward and downwards with his boots covered in the cinders and slag.

I went in there once, possibly twice, in about 1963 on my way to the Turf with my pals. To be honest, I don't remember much about the interior of the place. My only recollection is that it was a bit dark and dingy, and of course crammed with fans on a match day.

I haven't seen any of the pre-season games, so perhaps it's a bit unfair to comment, but I find it strange that some people do not want Wood in the starting line up, and even more crazy that one or two are going for Lennon as a starter.
