THE SOUTHERN JOHN GWYNNE, TONY MILLARD R.I.P. HEAD-IN-HANDS LEAGUE
As this link from his beloved Brighton & Hove albion site, points out, the broadcasting world lost a shouty, but somewhat unsung hero… (LINK)
The piece of string between two cups, one in Sheffield and one in Penzance snapped at the weekend, leaving me with no pre-done categories.
(EDIT) Fortunately(…or not…) it came back, texts bursting forth from my phone, voicemails galore, and so here…
However, in true showbiz fashion, the show must go on. Here are a few snippets of Categories for this week that might have been…
DARWINISM IN ACTION
ARE YOU MY FAG?
Keanu (the male chav-equivalent of Chelsea) Marsh-Brown at Barnet
IT DON’T MEAN NUTHIN’
Adam Currington (Cambridge United) against former club Tamworth, and more impressively, a double I.D.M.N. by Yann Kermorgant and Michael Morrison, who both scored for Charlton Athletic against their old club Leicester City.
LIVE FROM THE PHONE BOX
Failed. Obviously the BBC can afford better telephony. However, I didn’t hear any reports on Sky either…
None detected on Sky, but as for the BBC’s pale imitation of Soccer Saturday, take it away Mr Bell….
Here are the other categories that would’ve made it, but for the (LATE!) official selection courtesy of young Neil…
DAY TRIP TO BRIGHTON
Andy Procter (Bury) scoring an own goal for Cheltenham Town as well as scoring at the right end
FIGHTING LIKE BEAVERS
Not sure if this counts, but Ayr United, who went down to nine men 55 minutes into their game with Airdrieonians, managed to hold on for a 2-2 draw .
Again, not sure if he’s famous enough (he does have his own Wikipedia entry though!) – Paul Quinn (Singer / East Stirlingshire forward)
And after all that……
Chris O’Grady (Barnsley), Michael Morrison (Charlton Athletic), Ryan Ulysees Lowe (Tranmere Rovers), Nile Ranger (Swindon Town), Danny Mayor (Bury) and Mickael Antoine-Curier (Hamilton Academical)
Jermaine Pennant (Stoke City), Anthony Stokes (Celtic)
Andy Reid (Nottingham Forest), Sam Vokes (Burnley), Kevin McDonald (Wolverhampton Wanderers) and Kyel Reid (Bradford City)
Andy Reid (Nottingham Forest), Kevin Lisbie (Leyton Orient), David Mooney (Leyton Orient) and Kyel Reid (Bradford City)
Dwight Gayle (Crystal Palace), Kieran Agard (Rotherham United), Reuben Reid (Plymouth Argyle) and Ben Wright (Salisbury City)
There seems to be an unexpected, but welcome return – A TRIALIST. He’s a busy man – scoring in Rangers’ gubbing of East Fife and getting booked in the Clyde game, which featured A’s brother B playing for the opposing side Elgin. B Trialist also ended up in the referee’s book. “How do you spell ‘B’…”
OVERALL RESULT: A WIN OUTRIGHT FOR CHRIS’ OWLS! WELL DONE, SIR…
