Re: A goodbye message from Jeff

That goal at home to Bournemouth and the finish to that move at Everton should live long in the collective memory.

All the best, Jeff, except of course whenever you play against us in future.

We probably rated you more highly than you realised: it's just that we have a funny way of showing it.

Re: ***SPOT THE BALL*** Game 6

Hmm. I did previously finish ninth in the table, and can boast a cup semi-final appearance plus a win over Buxton already this time.

But nothing, surely, beats winning the league and qualifying for Europe...and it looks like even at this stage I've said goodbye to that.

In such a low scoring Game, you have to feel sorry for the Admiral. 3 goals and still lost :shock: Indeed, Ralphie, my opponent was the only player in the Brian O'Neil to score four. Well done to Steve56. As you imply, however, I'd rather have scraped a 1-0 result than have lost even in what clearl...
