    THE EXEWEB ADVENT CALENDAR QUIZ XVI

    Oh, and Scott Golbourne got a mention on the latest FA Cup MOTD highlights for putting over a cross for Shrewsbury. Have I merited a yellow card yet ?

    What date will we be back watching live football at SJP Thread.

    Not surprised. Plymouth Parkway have only issued 100 tickets for their game against Newton Abbot in the Vase. Seems social distancing may be a problem. Other local league clubs postponing games because they won't be able to open their bar and so not economically viable to play games.

    MOTD > first game Liverpool v Farcenal > City's farcical replay at Anfield City's first MOTD appearance v European Champions Man Utd in 1969 which some people <cough, cough> have a dodgy DVD of.

    My favourite story about Maradonnnnnnnnnnnnnna, from Martin Samuel's tribute in the Daily Mail. "For this was an astonishing talent. He was eight when he went to Argentinos Juniors to trial. The club thought he must be much older and a midget, but suffering malnourishment."

    Grimsby (away) Tue 1st Dec

    Think there was a bit of a fuss that a recently set up equivalent of City's Bond scheme draw seemed to be almost always won by a member of staff. Rumour was that take up was so low they could only afford to give away the prize every other month, hence the 'winner' being someone who didn't get...

    Grimsby (away) Tue 1st Dec

    Reminds me of when Bally was City's manager and the Monday after a First Round win came into the office buzzing. "Can't wait for the draw. We might go on a Cup run," says Bally. Steve Birley, then Commercial Manager and a long suffering City fan replied "We've won one game. This is a Cup run."

    Little things that amuse you

    Been on Exeweb a number of years and only, to my knowledge, had posts reported to the mods twice. Both by me.

    And you do need basic literacy to express an opinion on a forum in the written word. Opinions should be based on facts. When someone differs in opinion from you they are not "denying you the right to an opinion". They are disagreeing with you. At a time when the name Maradona was all over the...
