  1. Good for them. Playing football in lockdown sends completely the wrong message nationally, exposes players, officials, backroom staff and emergency services (not to mention their families) to Covid, unnecessarily so, and provides the perfect excuse for deniers not to wear masks/comply with government guidance. I appreciate they are not refusing to play for altruistic but for more practical financial reasons, but even so, it's about time so called elite clubs called a halt to this lunacy.
  2. How unlike a ref to be full of their own importance! Actually that's stereotypical, seen some good and some bad at this level, only a couple I would classify as Manwairing-esque. FWIW PetetheGreek is very good on the line, got a sense of humour too (essential if the match involves Jets and the industrial language of Mr Atkins
  3. It's a relatively recent name, and stems from the fact their red and white stripes resemble a barbers pole (hence Sweeney Todd, not to be confused with rhyming slang of the same or the brilliant TV programme). They were a very decent non league side until the early 70s.
  4. The first was the Rec's highest gate, 19,138, and was before I was born. The second I had the programme for, but was a baby then. Also played Man Utd around this time in the League Cup with the holy trinity on display, losing 1-3. Have never played any of the big London clubs competitively. Rhodes you are always making sly digs at people, eg that very untoward remark to Pete the Greek on Christmas Eve, you know and I know you were implying I was born with a silver spoon in my mouth, and that's a red rag to this particular bull which is why I called you out on it. Here endeth the lesson.
  5. Bringing us back on topic, Sim played in the epic 3-3 draw between Jets and NGU earlier this month
  6. Yes, a 'leafy Surrey man', from a council house, surrounded by rich kids so you really knew you were poor. Hope that addresses your patronising preconceptions. I moved away to go to university and never went back, and have lived in 10 counties but mainly Herts in the last 20 years. I currently live in Soxhey and have followed Jets since the great escape season where the drop was avoided at Stotfold's expense, having previously followed St Albans City for 5 years but became disillusioned by many things such as money grabbing owners, obvious match fixing I witnessed (3 players sacked but swept u
  7. To paraphrase John Elliott, a merry Christmas to both your readers
  8. With the imperious Jets storming towards the summit, I hope not
  9. 1 all at the interval in the game of the day, Jets picking up where they left off with Cameron netting inside 3, Putman's also hit the post and it's all the visitors. Sloppy goal conceded though on 9, Giordamaina with a sloppy pass on the edge of the BU box, from which they broke quickly only to seemingly give up possession centre field but some more sloppy play at the back saw the hosts gifted an opportunity, which was despatched. Jets camped in the opposition half but with only 1 goal to show for it, I expect Mr Atkins will be peeling the dressing room walls as I type. Edit whatever he

  11. Further to my communications with the Jets and Biggleswade Utd, the hosts will be streaming Saturday's game, and all involved have been an absolute pleasure to deal with. Two fantastic clubs, I'm sure they will put on a spectacle so if you can't physically get to a game for whatever reason then let this one come to you https://m.twitch.tv/biggleswadeutd/profile
  12. I've contacted Biggleswade's Club Secretary for clarification on this, as obviously I'd love to go but equally I don't want to have a wasted journey, let's see what they say.
  13. So much for petering out, final score 10-0, Stead x2, Putnam x2, Giordama x2, Bircham x2, Cameron and Speer. Colney ended with 9, for a bit of afters near the end but was already double figures by then. Great credit to LC, they kept going and had a lot of shots second half, but it was just wave after wave at the other end and could have been anything. Putnam in particular unlucky not to have the match ball as the makeshift keeper pulled off 2 sensational saves to deny him. Pick of the goals a worldie from young Sean which raised the roof. 16 goals in 4 days at the Jets will have to sustain me
  14. Shooting gallery here tonight, 4-0 and could've been 12, Colney's keeper sent off midway through. Stead x2, Putnam and Cameron on target. Feel for LC but think this might peter out.
  15. The Met Office should get down there to look into this microclimate. They should be expelled from the SSML if they keep cheating, because that's what this is. 😡
