    I am truely surprised you can summons some Bbo. 

    It’s a balancing act od !

    Dictated largely by whether I guzzle large amounts of vin ordinaire or The Manor’s budget allowing me to savour a higher quality Shiraz

  2. I like our selected side. I reckon we will win comfortably 

    I am particularly looking forward to watching Bennell and an improved VDB, now that he has a couple of games under his belt

    In a joyous celebration of my returned optimism, I shall give the maid a jolly good pre game rollicking !

    The coach coaches then during the week, he sends them out at the weekend and watches them make appalling skill errors and decisions for AFL Standard players, knowing it will reflect on him, as it always does, rather than the the players who have practiced and practiced, but still make the same appalling errors

    This is the issue Saty !

    How many times can we watch " the same appalling errors" and not ask the question as to whether what the " coach coaches during the week"   is having any impact, effect or use?  

    Based on performance, it seems none. 

    Next obvious question. Is said coach of any [censored] use at all ?

    Hey Uncle, if you drop the drawbridge over the croc infested moat, I could be persuaded to drop on over and share a beverage or 5 with you and we can analyse the game then report on Demonland!? Then for afters you could show me your Im sure amazing man cave, complete with every extra sublety and "Must have" item! Hows that for a once in a lifetime offer??😎

    How very delightful of you picket, to invite yourself to my humble abode.

    However, and I'm trying to be gentle here, Romsey is a rather exclusive locale. Ruffians like your goodself would be barely  allowed within the postcode much less the genteel confines of The Manor.

  5. We need to win this one or it's getting very close to goodbye finals.

    Unfortunately, my totally despondent and bitter self just does not see it happening! 

    Last week's side could only manage an under 14's score. What has changed?

    This season has been [censored] up but that doesn't account for the fact that two problems that continually plague us remain. These are - The inability to play 4 ( even shortened) quarters of decent footy and the inability to turn inside 50's into scores.

    How or why is it going to change today?

    Bah! I'm so depressed, I can't even be bothered giving the maid a jolly good thrashing.

    And what does that say about the MFC FD we extend his contract last year? 

    It's a tricky one od ! 

    He's shown glimpses of being a player but also looked hopeless at times. Before this season got derailled by corona, I recall posting that now was the time Weid had to put up or [censored] off.

    However, with what's happened this year it's almost impossible to make judgements based on a decent amount of evidence
