Mikey M  ;Das the right idea.

WHU when they're good and Swansea are sh*te
Swansea when they're good and WHU are sh*te
F*ck knows what to do though when they're both sh*te   ;D

Anyway Oakers, look on the bright side.

England, Wales, N.Ireland, and Eire got to the Euro's. Thank the Lord you're not Allan Heron  ;D   ;D   ;D

To be fair Scotland are the only ones with a 100% record.

Allan, you may well have "brought football to Iceland"


It's a pity they never gave it you back...      ;D   not good but it was the best i could come up with.


Incidentally, to find a bargain, I see Joe Hart went shopping at Iceland. He saved nothing

I know we are empathising with Wales, Rob - but eating plankton is taking this way too far.

Sorry, you probably can't read this 😉

I repled to Robs post but it seems to  have failed. It went along the lines of ' I've followed both Swans and WHU since the 60's through thick and thin with equal and consistent passion and will continue to do so. I will hold his comments in the contempt they deserve. At least until about 9.45 on Friday.

Mikey, Mikey,  Mike. As i keep telling you, blokes can have more than one wife, women can have more than one husband, some have dual nationality, Jeez, you can even have more than one religion. But no one must ever, ever,  have more than one football team.

That said, you are forgiven. I still see you in that Moore, Hurst, Peters, 60's WHU shirt.  :)

It's a small club thing. Growing up, we had bigger class sizes than the Swans had crowds, hence we all followed the Swans but had ouf 'big club' as well.
Never strayed from WHU but some moved from Pool to Man u, which I never understood.
Also used to follow a Scottish club which shall go unnamed unless it uosets Mr H.

No googling, but he moved to WHU in the late 60's early 70's  for the then record price for a keeper of 65k.
Name that keeper!

I just got a Bonnie Tyler DVD of goalkeeping blunders.

It's totally clips of Joe Hart!

Apologies if you have heard it before

Phil Parkes is the only GK I know of. What I do know is that WHU once beat a team 10-0, then went and brought their centre half!

Allan Heron will be amused to see half of Scotland is heading down to Plymouth Argyle according to the transfer news! Bit mild down this way I would have thought. They'll all be going back home for Christmas with suntans!

Shakers have just signed a forward from Glasgow Rangers.

Don't know about suntans, it's piggin' freezing here and it's June!

Don't need to be in Wales.  I think all of England and Scotland is Wales at the moment

We'll see how long before the repugnant Mr Adams gets found out.

Make that 9.45 on Wednesday. But then again, Portugal haven't been on fire.

Still underdogs but Portugal have not looked great. If the Welsh get in amongst them then it could be promising.

There's a few nervous Welsh bookies I should imagine....
They've won the singing hands down already.
Portugal won't be looking forward to this...even without Ramsey if they play like they did the other night anything is possible.
