Re: Your top six favourite guitar players

There have been so many guitar performances that have transported me to heaven, including some punk.

But I will go for the music I love and how the playing supported the song - so its Joe Messina.

Ry Cooder should be in any reasonably long list.

Re: Tark - transfer

The club will sell him if the income covers a replacement and generates a surplus to balance the books. Tarks may have moved to the point where he has reached max value. He should be sold. That's the only business model that works for BFC if we want to remain effectively a community club. In this ca...

If Gibson goes back to Boro and we fund most of his wages I would be disappointed. He thinks he can have it all his way. No he can't, and I am sure the board and management at Burnley think the same. He has to believe he will not play another game for the next two years to come to his senses.

There could be an interesting stand off. If the Cricket Club believed that the club would move they might well sell as I suspect a fair slice of its income is from parking and the bar on match days. Anyone care to estimate what it might be?
