  1. that gets a bit awkward if they live 300 miles away - or a continent

    Yes but what's the need? I lived overseas for a good number of years, there weren't even faxes at the time never mind anti-social sites. I moved in to my house, met some of the locals and blended in with society. I kept in touch with my folks by mail and the odd 'phone call every now and again if I could get one of the lines available, there weren't that many. I'm tech and have always been tech but social sites I just don't get. I have two grandchildren I've never seen so I'm going to Canada in September to see them, that's much better than anything FB can offer.

    My opinion of course.

  2. You could always act as ball boy.

    I can act as almost anything but ball boy? I don't have to act, I'm a natural :biggrin:

    I'm still working so Thursdays are pretty much out of the question but come August 26th, new season, I'm there!!

  3. I play once a week at Merthyr Town

    Really, I'm only down the road. I'd offer to pop up and give some support but you'd try to recruit me. In any case, it looks like I'll be getting a contract offer with NFC (Nottstalgia FC)

    If I'm playing I want to use my speed-walking on the wing, I'm not big enough to be a midfielder.

    It's not if, it's how when and as long as it's not on MY wing, there's enough of us there already :laugh:

    . . . or bring on the half time oranges?

    Will there be a Mars bar option? I have a high metabolic rate, just sitting here thinking I'm burning a cream egg an hour.

  4. Stewy was a super hero in my eyes but Kenny Burns is my all time favourite.

    I don't wish I was playing now but I had great times. My footy career finished early, birds, booze and bifta's put an end to that :glare:

    Yep if you need a flying right winger (No.7 please) or an almost un-useable right back I'm your boy, left leg (barely) standing room only.

  5. We always used to play on the Hemlock Stone but last time I saw it, many moons ago, they fenced it off because of vandalism, same as the major Oak I expect, but it looks, from the pictures, like the area has been tidied up now. I'm sure I used to play footy across the road from there as well.

    Me and the old fella used to drink in the Hemlock Stone pub on occasion, wasn't it a Mansfield Ales house at one time?
