Snook out last night ..

... at the last minute - went up to Stalybridge for the annual "Meet the Manager/Players/Usual Suspects" Night - some photos at

Good to see Hyde keeping their unbeaten run with a 0-0 draw at home to Barrow last night- not too much to read about at the moment, but it seems it was a fair result - shame to see on the Stalybridge "shout box" that they're comparing the Tigers to the Droylsden team that "hit the Prem" a few years back and ended up with a paltry 19 points (comments such as "only 17 to go" etc etc).  Unnecessary I feel - Hyde will do a lot better than that - guaranteed !

Tonight - a night in ... England game - you must be joking - banging out a friendly minutes before the season starts is little more than ridiculous ... but I suppose it helps to pay off the "Wembley Stadium debt" in some way - next thing you'll tell me is that they're doing an FA Cup round on the weekend before August Bank Holiday - thus creating the possibility that Bank Holiday Monday 'local derbies' get cancelled due to cup replays - oh yes that's what they ARE doing - well done F.A. - another winner - NOT !

QUICK UPDATE AT 1812 (!) - apparently it's not at Wembley ... it's at that stadium in Switzerland which makes many people giggle a little bit ...
