  • Salford (Disgustingly Rich) Lads' Club - Conference National 2018/19

    So it seems the Class of 92 vanity project are not to be the only club in the 5th division to dabble in foreign ownership Ė Gateshead have been bought by a Hong Kong-based businessman, which just screams stability and progression, I'm sure.

    Heed suspended from National League. Subject to appeal, I suppose.

    Seems that the Heed may have had a reprieve, after a supporter-led takeover went through yesterday. AGM Cup: match postponed.

    Itís decision day for Gateshead today, and itís quite possible theyíll go to the wall, with the supporters waiting to form a phoenix club. If so, the first AGM Cup reprieve of the year could go to relegated Aldershot, with knock on effects down the pyramid.

    I do like the fact that this season's Conference Premier thread is winding down with a lot of discussion about Woking given their return next campaign.

    Woking FC possibly missing a trick here with nicknames

    The Martian tripod? It's in Woking, where Wells lived when he wrote 'War Of The Worlds'.

    I don't think that's Chertsey though, is it? I worked two or three days a week in Chertsey for almost ten years and don't recognise it.

    I managed to work in Chertsey for three years and completely missed that. I saw the ruined abbey though.

    Three games a week! Chuffing nora! You must have been as fit as a butcher's dog after that. Or a wreck. Could go either way.

    Yeh, lot of Chelsea in that neck of the woods.
    Still play fives now but at 60 it's fuckin hard.

    Always regretted not paying a visit to Alwyns Lane to watch Chertsey although I did play at a few non-league grounds while I was there.

    Oh well. Orient lost the Trophy final 1-0. Didnít play that well, but had enough chances to score. Not that bothered to be honest.

    I really donít like Wembley. Despite 20 odd thousand Oís fans there crammed into 1 quarter, the rest of the place looked empty. But maybe, just, maybe, Iíll see us win a bloody game there before I pop my clogs.

    Lived in the hospital for about three years and then made the mistake of moving to Woking for about the same.

    Woking and District on the Saturday. South Thameside on the Sunday and a London Hospital Cup on Wednesdays. Happy days.

    We had quite a few Chelsea lads play for us at weekends.

    The BBC match report has confirmed my suspicion from earlier in the season that Chertsey's Lubo Guentchev is indeed the son of Bontcho.
    Oh, you should have asked. Maybe you did. Lubo was on Ipswich's books for a while. We all hoped he'd make it, as Boncho was universally adored despite being, you know, not all that good. But he didn't.

    That's interesting, Torres. What did you do there? Did you live locally?

    What league did St. Peter's play in?

    I worked in St Peters for about five years. Played for them for about six seasons as well.

    And Rathcoole's Dave Anderson announces his retirement from football (again) after completing the league and Vase double today.

    Good old St. Peter's, not that I know that part of the county particularly well, though I did know a few people in Horsell which was the Martians starting point.

    Ha, I was thinking of posting that up as well. It freaked me out the first time I saw it until I worked out the link.

    My wife was born in Chertsey, because it had the nearest maternity hospital to where she's from, be she remains resolutely uninterested in its football team's progress.

    We'd have to bring the story forward 100 years, but I love the fact that the Martians planned landing spot is in the middle of the stockbroker belt and they go on to lay waste to the golf courses and French restaurants of NW Surrey as they march on the capital. But much like the dalek at the bottom of a flight of stairs, their plans for domination are severely hindered by their need to pick their way through the tight confines of suburban shopping centres:
