    Are you an Optimist or a Pessimist?

    Lovely to see so many Pessimists turning into Optimists since Tuesday night's football results. Doesn't it make one feel a lot happier looking on the brightside? Even though we might be well-piffed off if we don't eventually "get to where we want to be" - FFS, I sound like Simon Grayson when...

    Is Beesley our top goal scorer?

    I see you've now edited your original post, changing 'Wes' to 'Was' ... WTF are you playing at...'Chain Letters' ?!😁 C U at Carlisle United😜

    Is Beesley our top goal scorer?

    That's the first time that I've seen Lavery and Wes used in the same sentence, let alone the same breath! Lavery will never be fit to lace The Magician's boots...

    King Kenny

    Behave Voyeur, you facetious old fart😜the subject was midfielders not strikers! 'Stevie G' definitely had a goal in him eg., 120 goals in 504 games for The Reds, that's about 1 every 4 games. Whereas King Kenny scored 8 in 129 games for our beloved Tangerines, that's about 1 every 16 games...

    King Kenny

    Let's not turn Kenny Dougall into some kind of Steve Gerrard. Apart from his never-to-be-forgotten two goals in the Play-Off Final victory, he only scored 6 goals in the other 128 games that he played for us! FFS, 20togo would've bagged a few more than that based on his remarkable goal-scoring...

    City v Arsenal

    I said to my daughters that Jesus looked sick at being taken off, but said that he'll be back... One replied that he looked more cross than sick!😱

    Are you an Optimist or a Pessimist?

    I thought the title of my thread was quite a simple question for anybody to answer! Only two options were available (which were the exact opposite of each other) yet quite a few failed miserably to answer either way and somewhat surprisingly opted for some other option. Possibly because having...

    Are you an Optimist or a Pessimist?

    I've always been an optimist and always looked on the bright side of life, I suppose it stems from my parents and my grandparents who had to endure two World Wars. My four 'kids' are the same and my six grandkids will (fortunately) be brought up the same way with the same outlooks and beliefs...

    Carlisle away Ticket details.

    Just left the club shop with two tickets for me and my eldest grandson.👍 Over one thousand left but couldn't afford them, so decided to leave them for some other reprobates...🧡

    Shout out for Beesley

    From what I've seen this season, if you take the best of Joseph and the best of Lavery I'd still choose Beesley to play in the team alongside Rhodes. I was talking yesterday with an old Pompey-suppporting mate and he was full of praise for our 'lanky lad' up front - and, despite Colby having a...
