First goal keeper howler with our defender. Second goal a penalty when it shouldn't have been as our defender Adam Jackson played the ball. Third goal sloppy marking. Poor display with it being our 130th anniversary game, celebrating our terminally ill owner who was in the stand Patrick Cryne and nobody making themselves a cert to start at Oakwell South on tuesday night.

John Terry is 36 and played his third 90 minutes in a week. So do we play it on the floor and have our pacey players speed past his aching and ageing bones and limbs? No we played everything near him up in the air and he didn't lose an header all afternoon which should come as a surprise to nobody because on the field (not so much off it) he's a class act still.

Weird that Billy Beane got played by Brad Pitt in 2011 movie Moneyball and is expected to be on our new board when Chinese billionaire Chien Lee buys the club shortly.

we've had a half decent start to the season and now with a potential taker over - maybe after many years we will have a memorable season for positive reasons

Great to see Stefan Payne still banging them in for Shrewsbury Town. Rather they got promoted than same old yoyo teams with much bigger budgets like Wigan Athletic for example.

Worth a mention for Scarborough Athletic. The rebirth football club of my favourite seaside resort are in the 4th FA Cup qualifying round in a few weeks home to Hyde United (Manchester for those shit at Geography). Could be in the first round proper.

The biggest non league side in Barnsley are also in the 4th and final round Shaw Lane Aquaforce who play Barrow two leagues above them but struggling so can be beat.

Man City have had an unreal start to the season and look absolutely unbeatable

The frightening thing is that it is quite common for them to score 5 or 6 in a game .... we have the pleasure of playing them on boxing day Cry

Sky Bet offering 2/1 on both teams in the England and ROI games to get 10+ booking points.

10 points for a yellow and 25 for a red so all it needs is 1 booking per team and that's not asking alot.

Depends on how fussy refs are in friendlies but it still looks a cracking bet to me.

its an absolute certainty in the ROI game but the England game will all depend on how much they actually decide to play or if they just go through the motions

Some sublime acting in the Wales U21's vs Romania U21's game. One of the Romanian players rolled about 10 yards off the pitch after being fouled, another did a sublime dive...got himself booked..then sent off as it was a second booking....then their other striker got rugby tackles, elbowed the Welsh player to get him off, then put his head to the same player infront of the ref...naturally got sent off haha, what a last 10 mins that was.

Surprised the friendly had bookings for me but the intensity of a qualifier didn't.

No surprise Wales finally scored when they got on a couple of the Super Reds, including our 4th choice winger LOL

Speaking of our wingers our best one Harvey Barnes of Leicester City scored again today as England under 20s lost 2-1 to Germany. The goal is in Twitter tweets if you search his name and was top corner again.
