You're truly not just scraping the barrel, Mike...you've taken the bottom off it completely... 1931.... I'm embarrassed for you.

This from the fan of a club who had a LOWER attendance (3,007...) than that at a home game within the last 20 years.... Personally, in those circumstances, I'd keep my fingers off the keyboard....

nope just thinking it has to be 1998 during the dark times. not sure when else it might have been

it is not easy being a fan of a small club with no history playing in a half empty council house with no atmosphere and worst of all it turns out we have a Utd fan as manager

I think I missed the first one as I was having my first hip replacement.

International break. I’m bored already. Although I’m glad my FF jinx is clearly a real thing with Morata now apparently (hopefully) out for 6-8 weeks. Right, who else can I injure? Time for Kane to trip over his enormous bottom lip and slip a disc.

I missed most of that season as I was working on the Empire State Building
May 1 In New York City, the 1-year and 45-day construction of 102-story Empire State Building has been completed, and the building is dedicated.

I think Ed did his hip in falling over his lunch box.

Snap. I'm coming to the UK for a week and there's no actual football to watch. Thought I might sneak in a Saints game. We can't possibly be selling the place out.

That generates 2 questions:

1. Who are you?

2. What have you done with FL?
