Season 7 Game 34 (21-24 Feb)

THE ‘Squeaky Fromme and Bough? Get Out!’ HEAD-IN-HANDS LEAGUE

So named because of the weekend birthdays of Dakota Fanning (26), Ben Miller (54) and Jordan Peele (32). In case of anyone out there wondering – Dakota played Lynette ‘Squeaky’ Fromme in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood”

Barney: [nothing recorded]
Chris: “(Jack, of Harrogate Town) Diamond has got his name in Lights”
Howard: [nothing recorded, and Chris’ rare recorded Zinger has meant there are no retro-generated ones from me]

Barney chose Stephen Dobbie at QoS, Lukas Jutkiewicz at Birmingham City and Harvey Knibbs at Cambridge United as fresh meat for the forsaken.
In order – No, Yes, No.

Aaron Taylor-Sinclair of Livingston (Doncaster Rovers to Plymouth Argyle to Motherwell) and Jordon Forster (East Fife to Plymouth Argyle to Cheltenham Town to Dundee). Textbook.

Mallik Wilks’ (Hull City) struggles with the law are well known (LINK). As an alternative, we have Barry Bannan (Sheffield Wednesday) who got collared for dangerous driving (80% over the limit) and also ran off from scene. A fine effort indeed. He’s no Gary Charles, mind you, but a worthy contender all the same.

I think we’ve seen Hal Robson-Kanu (West Bromwich Albion) and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton) here before, but Aaron Taylor-Sinclair of Livingston seems like the new boy. Now watch out for those big lads, and don’t get  Barney to explain the rules of the Biscuit Game…

In its most basic form – Watford [then 19th] losing 3-0 to Manchester United [5th]. Let’s leave that one there.

Barney – called East Fife v Stranraer at 3-0 on 50 min – Finished: 4-2 – FAILED!
– [nothing recorded -allegedly- so…] – FAILED!
– called Swindon Town v Grimsby Town at (maybe) 3-0 on 57 min – Finished: 3-1 – FAILED!

Plymouth Argyle’s bore-draw with Cambridge United seems to be the worst of the worst, with just 1 shot on target apiece [4 and 7 off-target, respectively]. According to Sky, 11,597 people were treated to this feast of football. Poor buggers.

Zachary “Zak” Dearnley (Oldham) – possibly qualifies as Old School.

Declan McManus (Falkirk) did the score and sent off thing.

Steven MacLean (Heart of Midlothian) retired at the end of the 19/20 season, but was still there to get a point on the board for Sheffield Wednesday. However, it was enough to take the weekly HiH crown away from the red half of Sheffield.

Steven MacLean (Heart of Midlothian)
Stevie May (St Johnstone)
Vadaine Oliver (Northampton Town)

Matty Godden (Coventry City)
Reuben Reid (Cheltenham Town)

Callum Harriott (Colchester United)
Joe Aribo (Rangers)

ArsenalOlivier Giroud (Chelsea)

Chris Porter (Crewe Alexandra)
Clayton Donaldson (Bradford City)
Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton)
James Hanson (Grimsby Town)
Jamie Murphy (Burton Albion on loan from Rangers)
John-Joe O’Toole (Burton Albion) Southend United
Lyle Taylor (Charlton Athletic) x2
Paul Gallagher (Preston North End)
Scott Hogan (Birmingham City on loan from Aston Villa)
