    The Reason Don Masson Never Signed for us in 1972

    Just reading Don Masson's autobiography, one of my Christmas books, to while away lockdown. Masson's transfer from Notts County was seen at the time as the last piece of John Bond's jigsaw to get us promoted that season with Aston Villa.

    Keeper Sent Off In Penalty Shootout. (Non)

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/55032073 Orlando keeper gets a second yellow when moving off his line to save a New York City FC penalty. Their sub keeper is not allowed to come on so an outfield player goes in goal, doesn't save the retake but then saves the next penalty. How bizarre.

    Hope We Don't Make The Same Mistake As Arsenal On Our Away Travel Arrangements.

    I can't believe this. Pre-match at VIP lounge at Stansted Airport with a 5pm flight to Manchester into the eye of bad weather in the North West. What preparation was that. No wonder it was a lack lustre performance with injuries. Hope we learn from that.

    Last Time the Football Programme was Suspended

    This was on account of the weather. The Big Freeze of 1962/63. We had a blizzard on Boxing Day with six feet of snow and continued low temperatures afterwards and there was still snow on the ground right into March. It put paid to the Boxing Day programme and our next game was on the 23...

    The Dark Arts of Burnley FC

    Arteta complaining in his post match interview that the Turf Moor turf wasn't cut in the lead up to the game and the pitch wasn't watered either with the idea to prevent Arsenal pinging the ball about on the deck.
