THE ‘Learn To Fly from Weatherfield to Paddington’ HEAD-IN-HANDS LEAGUE

The Dread Hand Of BarneyThe Dread Hand of Barney
Was away last week as It had flown the thermals over to Washington DC, to make arrangements for the beginning of Armageddon, or as some are calling it, The Presidential Inauguration. Having made Its’ satisfied way back to Blighty, the mockers were put on Christian Benteke at Crystal Palace and Kurtis Guthrie at Colchester United, but Stevenage’s Matty (You’re Not A Kid Anymore) Godden’s very early goal probably happened whilst the evil one had put the kettle on.

DON'T CALL ME SHIRLEYDon’t Call Me Shirley
Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez netted here, which will do as no other unisex-named players were noted by your crack team of pundits…

Known To The AuthoritiesKnown To The Authorities
West Ham’s Andy Carroll (Punchy in a nightclub) easily makes the grade, but we also have the regrettably-named David Goodwillie of Plymouth and his not-rape-but-is-rapist court case to consider. If only he had a wealthy Welsh fiancee… :-/

It Dont Mean NuthinIt Don’t Mean Nuthin’
None of these players appeared to have scored against their old clubs, so clearly it meant something

Bendtner!Bendtner!
This has been something of a success since its thawing from the deep-freeze of categories, so there’s hope for Law Firm and Walk Of Fame yet, isn’t there Howard? [Edit: “No”]. Cameron Jerome got on the scoresheet for his first in 13 games for Norwich City, which is plenty good enough for this section.

Plymouth Argyle’s Arnold Garita is the winner from a closely-contested week, with honourable mention to Bury’s George Miller, who scored against Posh, outpacing Chris Turner and slotting the ball past Fred Barber.

Miscellany

Bury, who came into their home game against some collection of players called Peterborough United [United??] having not won in 20 games. Things started in grim fashion for the Shakers, going 1-0 down on 4 minutes, however, they then hit five unanswered goals, [*Barney makes Scooby-Doo noises at this point*] comfortably ending the winless streak.

Double whammy at Meadow Lane in the 0-0 draw between Notts County and Mansfield Town – not only an almost bespoke ‘Unpleasant Local Derby‘, but you can add a ‘Paul Robinson‘ as various news sources report both teams combined for either zero or one shot on target in the 90+ minutes.

Tyrone Mings has battled back from a serious injury which put him out of action for 16 months, his return from the bench was warmly greeted by the Bournemouth faithful. His subsequent own goal was less well received but does get a Make Ya Ma Proud award.

Over to North Wales for this week’s sponsor as we home in on Gap Connah’s Quay, but then we divert via the legal offices while Barney has a rant. So you may go and make a cup of tea…

Many people are under the idea that GAP, famed for their expensive advertisements and use of sweatshops in the Far East are sponsoring the Flintshire team. This is incorrect, it’s Gap Personnel, which recruits British people for zero hours jobs at poverty wages, which backs the Nomads, so that’s just fine.

Everyone alright now? Mine’s black with two sugars by the way….

Annan Athletic (an oxymoron?) had a fine first half in their away fixture against runaway leaders Forfar Athletic, holding the Station Park club to a 1-1 draw on 45 minutes. But the 403 spectators (including sheep) were in for yet more disappointment. Step forward Annan centre-back Callum Home, who had clearly had too much Bovril at half-time and scored the winning own-goal less than 90 seconds after the restart.

Pagga!Pagga!

Fresh Hell abounded in the FA Cup, with Messrs. Pulis (West Bromwich Albion 1-2 Derby County), Hughes (Stoke City 0-2 Wolverhampton Wanderers) and McCarthy (Ipswich Town 2-2 Lincoln City) all seeing their teams embarrassed by lower league outfits. McCarthy later commented: ‘I’m bitterly disappointed, Lincoln were unfortunate not to win the game’. However, Northampton Town’s Robert Page once again took the proverbial [which proverb is that again?] biscuit with this gem after the Cobblers (appropriately enough) 5-0 gubbing at the hands of Bristol Rovers:

‘Players were knocking on my door, saying they deserve a chance, so I gave them a chance to do their talking on the pitch. Actions speak louder than words, there were a couple giving that, it was men against girls, not boys. It was embarrassing, the players and staff all feel we let the club and the fans down today’

He had no further need to worry, as the Northampton board fired Page two days later.

Because the rules concerning player registration are different in Scottish Cup matches, this allows clubs to employ the never-unwelcome A Trialist. Arbroath did exactly this and the well-travelled Trialist took only 10 minutes to open the scoring against Edinburgh City.

This week’s sponsor is/are Arighi Bianchi, which to these ears sounds like a minor character in The Godfather trilogy (or the former manager of the Italian national team?) who probably got wiped after disrespecting one of the Made Men [note: only Barney can explain that one. Emails to the usual address]. It turns out they are a boutique (expensive) furniture store which now has its moniker emblazoned on Macclesfield Town FC shirts.

The floor is yours, Managing Director Nick Bianchi:

“This season we are once again enhancing our relationship with the Football Club and we are delighted to be doing so. Macclesfield Town play a massive part in the community and like Arighi Bianchi have a big role to play in the town. So it is really pleasing that the two of us can come together and grow our partnership.
The ultimate goal is of course to see the Arighi Bianchi logo on the front of a Macclesfield Town shirt in the Football League. Given the real success of the side over the last two seasons that is a major possibility!”

“Otherwise, the team will sleep wi’ de fishes” He did not add.

The Dread Hand Of BarneyThe Dread Hand of Barney
Accidentally saw the New Year in with some style, after having a senior moment and getting the recipe for brimstone all wrong. The resulting explosions and cordite in the air were passed off to the alarmed neighbours as a seasonal firework display. Friendly relations were maintained with next door via an invitation to a quiet get-together sometime. This unexpected occurrence did not prevent the sentient being continuing its recent run of fine form, as Cardiff City’s Peter Whittingham, Wycombe Wanderers’ Scott Kashket and Fulham’s Stefan Johansen all failed to find the net, the latter missing a penalty in the process.

It’s a no-no here, though Sheffield United’s Kieron Freeman (Nottingham Forest, Mansfield Town, Notts County, Derby County, Notts County, Sheffield United) looked good until the Portsmouth loan spell earlier in the season. Always one there to spoil it.

Fresh HellFresh Hell
Can it really be as far back as April 2015 when Carlisle United’s Keith Curle suggested he ‘Didn’t have enough players with male genitalia’ [not even in the women’s side?] to field a competitive team? It surely was, and his rant certainly did the trick as the Cumbrians rallied in their last few games and comfortably avoided relegation. This season has seen Carlisle regularly in the top 3 in Division 2, though losing their unbeaten home record to recently promoted Grimsby may have led to a verbal, rather than physical, emasculation by Curle.

Are You My Fag?Are You My Fag?
Wycombe Wanderers’ winger Paris Cowan-Hall’s goal certainly qualifies him for inclusion, though The Paris Cowan Hall may be also be where the head boys mass to sing the house song of whatever Public School they’re incarcerated in. [I feel the urge to shout “Socialist Work-ahh!” at this point…]

Darwinism In ActionDarwinism In Action
It’s that time of the year when the wheat is sorted from the chaff and teams eye up The Travel Pages with some degree of suspicion. Rotherham United are one such team who may find themselves amongst the boating holidays section of the local rag in a couple of months and that 3-0 loss at Leeds United won’t have helped matters.

Mike Phelan’s swan song as Hull City (NOT Hull Tigers) boss gets a double mention in despatches. His Reverse Churchill team talk when 0-1 up versus West Brom oversaw a second half meltdown and a 3-1 verdict. Phelan’s subsequent ‘Pretty boys not doing the basics’ rant is thought to have lost the players in a similar fashion to recent performances losing the board’s support and he was spared managing the team against The Blades next year.

El Barno’s regular anti-Premiership rant [this will change when Peterborough United get into the top division!] received another rendition to an audience of bored ears when Middlesbrough’s goalless draw with Leicester City contained a grand total of three shots on target.

This week’s sponsor? That would be the backers of Accrington Stanley{“Who are they?”}, who are The Plastic Box Shop – guess what they sell? Their website suggest you buy your offspring some boxes for Christmas – imagine the thrill on their faces on the morning of 25 December when your children tear open the wrapping paper and open the box to realise the box is their actual present, initiating a long-standing family schism between parent and progeny that, this being Accrington, only The Jeremy Kyle Show can solve.

s still cleaning up after the Christmas party, rather hoping the scorch marks can be removed from the skirting board after the charades got a little bit ‘tasty’ between Pestilence of the Four Horsemen and Hecate. After an unsuccessful search for a Stain Devil which could remove hellfire, our friend decided to book a table at a Harvester for Christmas 2017 and blame it all on Manchester United’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Huddersfield Town’s Elias Kachunga and Dagenham and Redbridge’s Oliver Hawkins, none of whom scored.

Reverse ChurchillReverse Churchill
Barnet recently lost their manager Martin Allen to the bright lights of Eastleigh and are now led by interim boss Ross Eames. His revitalising words during their Unpleasant Local Derby with Luton Town will have done much to replace the ‘interim’ tag with ‘former’ after the bees conceded two goals in the final 45 minutes in 3-1 defeat.

Local Boy Makes GoodLocal Boy Makes Good
Possibly Vas Karagiannis (Greece) of Maidstone United, Bira Dembele (France) of Barnet, or repeat offender Dylan Ngeune Bikey (France) at Stirling Albion. Out of 305 goals scored in this period, it’s pretty slim pickings.

Normally this is a fairly easy niche to fill, as there’s always some team’s fans who face a long journey with something approaching optimism and a longer journey back which confirmed their worst fears. But this is the New Year and the schedulers have been fairly kind to yon supporters, so there was only really one fixture which matched up and that finished Swansea 0-3 Bournemouth. 394 mile round trip.

You are Oldham Athletic, you’re dead last in Division One, can’t bring anyone in during transfer window due to an embargo and are facing a possible 10 point deduction for financial screw-ups. 2016 ends on an appropriate note when a determined defensive effort is unravelled by via a 90th minute Josh Law own goal in a 1-0 loss to Fleetwood. Mrs Law said to be ‘proud’. Maybe.

Not on this round’s category list but David Moyes’ comments after the 4-1 capitualtion (And boy’ is Burnley’s first goal a defensive masterclass) indicated much Fresh Hell erupted in Turf Moor’s away dressing room circa 4.50pm on New Year’s Eve:

“It was a poor performance – really, really bad – and defensively we were all over the place,” said Moyes. “The players have to take responsibility as well as me. We threatened at times going forward but we couldn’t defend,” added Moyes.
“We made the same mistakes time and time again; missed headers, missed bouncing balls, the same stuff. My players were well briefed on the opposition and you have to hope they take that into the game – but it was dire, as bad as anything I have been involved in here”.
He added: “You can ask me questions about myself and my future, that’s fine. We’re in the bottom three, I know that.”

Windsor FC have risen from the Ashes of Windsor & Eton, who went bust a few years back. Playing in the regional leagues and with a playing budget of zilch, Windsor were probably delighted when Thames Motor Group stepped in to sponsor the club. One small problem is that the shirts are in their new backer’s corporate colours, which make for a ‘diverting’ shirt:

Enjoyed a traditional Christmas celebration in the Netherworld (a bit like the Netherlands) with family and friends. The jovial atmosphere was further enhanced by the surprise arrival of Sean Dyche, who proved to be something of a whizz at Trivial Pursuit, narrowly defeating Seraphim and his . A post-Christmas let-down was averted by Blackburn’s Graham, Cheltenham’s Waters and Lincoln’s Arnold all failing to find the net.

Rumours the hand was spotted at Guiseley – Lincoln City game (finished 2-1) can’t be discounted, as Guiseley would be a reasonable place for our ethereal friend to live and Guiseley couldn’t beat Lincoln without some form of help from the dark side.

It’s all gone rather pear-shaped for Karl Robinson, whose success at Milton Keynes Dons seemed to dissipate when Dele Alli joined Spurs.

Quite a few candidates to receive a horrible checked cap in their Christmas stocking. As Barnsley’s in-demand striker Marley Watkins is becoming something of a perennial, we’ll go with Huddersfield Town’s Kasey Palmer, though Kemar Roofe at Leeds United, Bristol City’s Aden Flint and Watford’s Troy Deeney are strong contenders too. Just don’t tell Deeney I said that, he’s done ‘bird’ y’know.

Bendtner!Bendtner!
Troy Deeney’s admirable{?} honesty aside (he stated he deserved to be dropped after having ‘a stinker of a December’), his first goal in 11 games just passes muster for this category. But this is overshadowed by Ross McCormack’s first goal since early September – and 13 appearances – for Aston Villa. That’s what you pay £12m for.

Miscellany

A few players set out to Make Their Ma’s Proud over the festive period. Teddy Mezague’s own goal on his Leyton Orient debut was seen and raised by Nottingham Forest’s Michael Mancienne’s {remember him??) decisive own goal/red card combination. However, Jermaine Beckford’s red card, three minutes after coming on and returning after his three-match ban for the now-legendary ‘Internal Pagga’ easily takes the house money.

We’ll keep this week’s sponsor local, as Sheffield United’s shirt sponsors for 2016-17 are something called Alpharooms.com. It’s yet another hotel booking site so there’s no real need to trudge through the corporate blurb, I’ll just point out that the Blades’ new away shirt is in their new financial suitor’s corporate colours of black and orange. Sheffield Wednesday’s away kit is in new owners Chansiri group’s colours of black and orange, leading to the mutual non-amusement of both Steel City club’s fans. Got all that?
