Just managed to squeeze all relevant action into 8 x 1 hr discs Alan .. from the 1950s to the league 2 away 0 -1 win over the codheads in Feb 2020.

So Graham Swann the gobby chairman of Scunthorpe United FC has his own point of view reference footballers and clubs during the C19 crisis .. thus bringing shame onto this great Northern tourist and world sporting hotspot .. and by the sounds of it has really revved up Gary Neville.

Just how the hell Swann thinks hes gonna get any decent player to sign for the club in the future with this attitude is blooming crazy .. WAFT

heres the article and vid ..

Mr Swanns response now is different from what he said initially ie"if the league's are suspended then players wages should be suspended "
Now he is saying even if some are furloughed they will get paid 100%.
Take my local club Macclesfield.... the players weren't paid on time even before Covid 19.
I fear the club will fold after nearly 140 years.

Swann always has been a jerk and now hes back tracking on what he actually said and Neville pulled him on .., he needs to move on and make way for some one whose heart is in the club as his ego n self importance holds no bounds .. i for will dance a jig when he does go , ever since he sacked Graham Alexander and changed the ground name with no fan consultation many dislike him .

I was watching an old movie on the internet, Desert Mice, starring Sidney James, 1959. Sid was playing the leader of a hapless vaudeville group entertaining the troops (WWII) in N. Africa. Halfway through the movie Sid said "things could be worse remember Scunthorpe".

There are several great things to come out of Scunthorpe, The Rd to Messingham, the Rd to Winterton, the Rd to Keadby...... I remember driving past in May '74 and was taken with it's overwhelming lack of anything nice.

Enoch Powell had fond memories of the place, real simpatico with the natives he later claimed....

They're at it again.
I was reading a blog on Stickboy Bangkok about a farang in quarantine in Bangkok:
https://www.stickboybkk.com/opinion/a-s ... ng-part-2/
and then this came up,
"Mentally process the odds of them actually checking me out at 8am. Decide Scunthorpe winning the FA Cup would be more likely (edit: I was right)."
