Game 39 Season 2 (6-9 Mar)

THE ‘EVIE CARNAHAM ELBOWED IN THE ANTARCTICS’ HEAD-IN-HANDS LEAGUE

So named because of the weekend birthdays of Rachel Weisz, who played Evie in The Mummy (45!?!), Guy Garvey of Elbow (41) and Ranulph (not too Ranulphs about these days) Fiennes (71).

“Ricky gives Dover a ‘Modeste’ lead” (Chris)
John Swift (of Swindon Town) gives Notts County the bird“, which then built up to “Preston are making MK Dons look like Ordinary Boys”¬† & was topped with¬† “Why is Brian Wilson being sent off for Oldham? God only knows!”(Howard)

All a “NO!” – the curse of the dread hand of Barney strikes again!

DON'T CALL ME SHIRLEYDon’t Call Me Shirley
No? Surely you can’t be serious…

Make Ya Ma ProudMake Ya Ma Proud
Fresh from the pen of Barney: “An impressive effort from Notts County’s Liam Noble. Yellow-carded, Noble then instructed the ref on what he could do with his card. Straight red ensued.”
But that wasn’t all: Matt McClure’s midweek red card after 70 seconds, after coming on as a substitute, and landing what is known in these parts as a ‘Shearer’ (flying elbow) will not now be going without comment. And ironic applause.

By choo-choo train, approximately THIRTY FOUR POUNDS RETURN on the day. On the field – nothing of note.

Kurtis Guthrie (Forest Green Rovers). Innit.
