Hartey seems to have recovered from his walk last week to play in Liam Miller’s tribute game today, alongside Stephen McPhail and Robbie Keane. Sadly Smithy played for the Scum XI they were up against :(

Can't see any comments on what actually happened but stretchered off and there was a 7 minute stoppage while he got treatment.

CBJ made a miraculous recovery from this concussion and has tonight scored twice, scunny currently 4-3 up at home to Charlton.

I do. It’s shows the quality of Australian footy when that Usain Bolt with limited experience can score two albeit in a friendly. It’s also highlights how much McCormack has underachieved in his career due to his character flaws.

Aye, interesting read, that.
One question occurred to me.
There's no shortage of rich blokes ready to stick there hand in their pockets to put money into men's football.
Why are there no rich women prepared to do the same for women's football and stop clubs from folding?

There isn't an opportunity to make money?

It isn't popular enough for any real celebrity status?

Nah, autocorrect doesn't make that kind of mistake, people do.
Autocorrect doesn't allow a possessive adjective followed by a copula verb.

But apology accepted, and I also apologise, shouldn't be so picky.

It does on my phone but clearly my mistake Im not in the habit of checking a post for grammatical errors.

But don't apologise for who you are(within reason). Nothing wrong with being picky.

A curiosity for anyone who was attending games in the mid-eighties. I was idly scrolling down our list of managers on Wiki.

Apparently, on 11 October 1985, one Peter Gunby was manager for a single day between the sacking of Eddie and the appointment of Billy. He’s listed as having been a player for us without a single appearance, and had no other managerial career.

Anyone remember anything about the circumstances around this?

i rememer gunby well enough, had a nice 'tasche, stayed on as a coach for maybe all of bremner's time as manager. not sure what he did before or after his time at leeds.

[edit]

that's him, #16 - pretty much as i remember... according to wiki he was already in his 50s then, maybe used grecian2000 or similar?

The (mildly) interesting bit is that we had three managers on one day according to Wiki - a Friday without a match. So I guess Eddie was sacked in the morning, Gunby appointed to take training, then by the end of the day we'd robbed Billy from Donny Rovers.
