I see, was it the beautiful New Forest on the doorstep that tempted you? All those lovely ponies, just ripe for attacking.

They are too small, no challenge in those. Give me a working shirehorse as something to aim for. That’s a proper horse, none of your southern microhorse shite.

Well another trip to Wemberleee booked. Credit to Yernited who somehow didn't concede a goal and nearly pulled off the ultimate smash and grab. Bizarre decision to disallow Citeh's equaliser because of a foul throw by Yernited though.

Am I allowed to claim a moral victory by saying we beat the squatters in their council house twice within the last 2 months

The shot was saved. What was bizarre was the length of time play went on...United had the ball, played a couple passes, knocked it forward and lost it. City then played a couple of passes and then you can see Friend's attention being drawn to something...presumably one of his assistants telling him. It couldn't have been VAR telling him...although the way that's been going this season, who knows?

A foul throw is still a foul throw whichever side took it. Rules of the game, bud....

I’m listening to Peter Crouch’s podcast - it’s making me giggle. I reckon Scamp especially would like it.

Yeah, New Forest ponies are tiny compared to those famously giant Northern horses - the Shetland Pony.
Shire horses are for pulling your house or barges on canals. We don't do either of those things in the modern world mate.

It's ****ing hilarious. It's one of my favourite podcasts to listen to full stop, but especially for football related 'bants'..... Along with, Football Ramble (the main ones, the daily bit has spoiled it) and the one with Kelly Cate - Liquid Football.

l.
We also use them for pulling proper beer that us Northerners and real men drink not that Southern Shandy or other garbage the South produces. There again I suppose a New Forest pony could be trained to carry a 6 pack of an eco friendly fair trade beer,
