Re: Small clubs in the north west

Should the Neville brothers have been supporting their home town team rather than Salford? In their position, I would have been supporting DFC, not the area of a City I had been employed. I worked in Newcastle and would go to home games at St James, with financial clout available to them I would not...

Re: English cricket.

My problem with English cricket is we play all types of game in the same manner. Test cricket is a specialist element of the game, our players train for it by playing T20 and one day cricket. What is wrong with playing 4-day championship cricket in preparation for test cricket?

Especially when we have a blatant penalty turned down against Gateshead, for a tackle on Thompson. I have in the past not criticized referees, howev...

Re: Jimmy Lawton

I saw Jimmy Lawton play many times, however, my comments are about a chance meeting with Jimmy and his partner, in a Cafe on Redcar seafront last year.
