    From what I can see, it's just a crowd-funded blog with quasi-journalistic aspirations. The internet seems filled with them these days.

    That's interesting, elgin. I'd guess that perhaps the fairground proprietor was using what was, prossibly, an already well-known saying as a marketing ploy. According to Green's Dictionary Of Slang: [SE phr. close but no cigar] (US) a beauty, an attractive woman. 1940 J.H. O'Hara Pal Joey 60...

    Exeter City Women 2019/20 Season

    DB9, quite agree. (I'll not quote as it's a big post). Things have a long way to go but are far better than they were. I remember 10 years ago, as an exile, trying to follow ECFC Ladies (as they were then) but failing miserably to find any info about them at all. It was only through the good...

    Exeter City Women 2019/20 Season

    I understand several have privately expressed a desire to have SJP as their home and be treated equally. :censored: I think we're reading different posts, Mike. I'd say Danny's main gripe is the misogyny, the lack of awareness as to how difficult it is for girls to be free to play football...

    Carlisle v Exeter City Matchday Thread.

    Well done City, and hats off to Matt. Not often I see us described as the 'League pacesetters' and with the joint highest goal difference to boot.

    Exeter City Women 2019/20 Season

    Indeed. Good to see that you, and one or two others, are waving the banner for equality. Whilst it's clear that misogyny is alive and well amongst some of the football following dinosaurs, it should be obvious to all that change is coming. I have little doubt that, if the ECFC Women players were...

    To your first sentence, isca, I always vote with my conscience. To your second sentence, I'm genuinely taken aback you need to ask.

    Whilst I'm not a 'traditionalist' voter of any party, should a general election finally lurch into view and given the dearth of alternatives, I'd probably have to hold my nose and vote conservative. (In the unlikely event Hammond ever became leader, I'd more than likely just spoil my ballet...

    You're probably in for quite a wait, could I get you a sandwich whilst you loiter? It's comparatively rare for me to see a reply to any post I make. In a fast moving thread like this one, I simply have neither the energy nor the inclination to wade through the mire, back several pages, to...

    In the unlikely event you've included me in your 'et al', Mike, I'm most definitely not in denial. I've had my eyes wide open all along and am currently enjoying the ride. Interesting times and all that.

    Not yet. But if you go to PayPal and enter the above email address, together with the derisory sum of £8.00, that'll do well enough. (y)

    All done, merci. (The links weren't working after all, so used the email address for PayPal).

    SSD fanzine subscriptions 2019/20

    Ah, the SSD website is still knackered. Whilst the PayPal subscription links work fine, I can't recall how much an annual subscription is. Would someone be kind enough to remind me? On the subject of SSD, I appear to be over run with feral copies of the magazine loitering in the most unexpected...

    As a quick aside on WW2 (in general), I'd like to tip a (metaphorical) sunday afternoon glass in the general direction of the Indian Volunteer Army, the largest volunteer army in history. (y)
