Still can’t understand the taker standing by the ball whilst all that time wasting crap is going on. Go and hide away from all that and come forward when the ref has it all sorted.

Re: Sad loss of three victories against Blackburn

Depending how long you have had your old box you own it. Don’t let them have it.
With modern boxes I believe you lease them.
We have our old uk default box still in use in the bedroom for free to view only, it’s 20yo. It is also your back up if your Q goes kaputt.

Re: Grounds That Burnley Haven't Had Much Change From

I’ve thought we seem to go by regions. Currently we are doing very nicely on the South Coast(BHA,Saints & B’mouth). We seem to either win or lose to every team in Yorkshire over spells. Same with London, although at PL level the field is not flat.
