THE “Two Knights at Wiggy’s” HEAD-IN-HANDS LEAGUE
So named because of the weekend birthdays of ‘Sir’ [?] Les Ferdinand (56), Sir Geoff Hurst (77) and the great, powerful ruler of all he surveys Lord Jeff Stelling (64; and his winter syrup, 24)…..
[As this is held under lock and key at Barney’s vault, there is only one option]: “Toure’s goal was a ‘Gime'”. There – and I hope you’re satisfied!
Alfredo Morelos at Rangers (NO), Rhys Murphy at Yeovil Town (NO-Didn’t play) and Armand Gnanduillet at Blackpool (YES. Scored the 3rd goal in their Unpleasant Local Derby with Fleetwood Town) are the latest to hope, like Chris Rea, they’ll be home for Christmas…
…it was looking like a clean sweep until Gnanduillet popped up in the 65th minute. He will be stuck in eternal tail-backs…
It was at “stormy” game at Stark’s Park, as home side Raith Rovers (or as Wiggy would say, “Roath Ravers”) beat Airdrieonians 1-0. In a game with 3 red cards, two were six minutes apart. It’s the closest we could find.
We need look no further here than Blackpool v Fleetwood Town here, although there is also Tranmere Rovers v Accrington Stanley and Stockport County (grrr..with it’s stupid platform ZERO?!) v Chorley possibly filling up the runner-up slot(s). There were also the Glasgow and Manchester derbies, but the unpleasantness there goes without saying.
Too many to list (in December too – good planning there, EFL!), I make the winner to be Newcastle United v Southampton – 322 miles ground to ground by road (or 5hrs 43min). That’s a long way back. Harrogate Town to Torquay United [312 miles, 2-1] and Gillingham to Sunderland [302 miles, 1-0] were runners-up.
Diogo Jota’s brace in Wolverhampton Wanderers’ draw with Brighton and Hove Albion were his first since 22 September, where he scored Wanderers’ only goal in a 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace, ending an 11-game blank. Good enough?
[To be filled in later – if Barney can excavate it]!
Gillingham v Sunderland [1-0] was the best I could find, although they are a regular here.
Brechin City goalkeeper Lewis McMinn scored a 90-yard goal in their 4-2 win over Stirling Albion – LINK. Good job this isn’t a Category…
Oh and Mike Fondop-Talom scored. That is all.
