This Week .....

Well - obviously didn't make Hyde 3 Solihul Moors 0 last night - have to say it's a real pain getting to Ewen Fields on a weekday by public transport (actually it's more the "getting back" !) - still a good win for the Tigers with "new boy" Morley getting off the mark too.

As I'm scribbling this at 2130, I'm obviously not at Glossop tonight for their Derbyshire Senior Cup game against Staveley Miners Welfare - don't know why but Glossop does often seem a "possible" on a weekday by public transport ..and has been done in the past ... but not tonight.

England plc FC are on the telly tomorrow - having lent their "Get out of Jail Free" card to Israel on Saturday - they've got it back (apparently) and are fighting for the point which will have the Finance Directors / Licensors at the FA rubbing their grubby money stained hands together (think I'll give that a miss, just in case we get the odd £150,000 a week player running towards a camera clutching the "three lions" shirt badge in his similarly money-stained hand). If it all goes pear-shaped - you may like to get your head round this document - if you've more money than sense - or your name is Jeff Tesco...

Mossley are away at Ossett Albion tomorrow night - one of those where you can get there via public transport on a weekday, but you're dependent on a lift back after the game if you want to get back to Mossley before 0645 the following day !!

However - me tomorrow - straight from work to the MEN Arena - doors open 1700 - first band on 1800 - yes it's the ....



My "raison d'etre" here is naturally DragonForce (http://dragonforce.com/main.html) but I've seen a few of t'other bands as well (certainly remember Shadows Fall and Machine Head from Download this year (they both need to do something to impress me - cus they didn't at Download !) - and there's a few Trivium CDs knocking about the house) - fingers crossed that DragonForce can do it indoors - seen 'em twice outdoors - last two Download Festivals - and the sound has been "less than good" - saw them at Manchester Academy last December - sound was A1 ! Hope it all works well in that big shed next to Victoria Station. Naturally with it being "big venue" the big camera stays at home and we are reduced to the "baby Fuji" - we'll see how it goes...

Fingers naturally crossed for Mossley - of course - an important local derby on Saturday at Curzon Ashton awaits .....

Oh - nearly forgot - train information system at Stalybridge is "still under test" i.e. (expensive) bag of shyte - promise some pix of the toilets/waiting room - soon - let's see where the rest of this £1.5 million has gone !!

Would it be at all possible to use some of the money to kit out the barmaid at the buffet bar in a station masters uniform from Ann Summers.
