Spot the Ball - Starts Monday 23rd March

Post by RalphCoatesComb » Wed Mar 04, 2020 2:07 pm

For those who have been having withdrawal symptoms, me and Spot were thinking of running a small competition from Early April until the end of the season.

Due to technical difficulties, and the seizure of a Box Brownie at Old Trafford and The Ethiad, images are in short supply. Spot assures me that he can find some old ones that former competitors (including Buxton) would not remember.

No promises, as yet, anyone interested?

What an excellent response, especially in these troubled times of the Corona thingy.

Nice to see many of the "Usual Suspects" showing an interest.

Me and Spot, and the Toy Poodle from around the corner, are working on the rules for the End of Season Cup. At present, Spot's only contribution has been "**** the Rules; **** the VAR; Let's go for a walk" Very useful.

Effectively, there is no 'High Court of Arbitration' and NO VAR !!! :D :D :D

I'm in, after a late promotion push last time, I was certainly in form.

Forgot if I did the last few or where I finished in the end.

Was always fun

Yes; as long as the ball is on the ground during the recent Arsenal match.

Arteta has no chance of winning. :lol:
