    Exeter City hooligan fan in sex change shocker

    My word. I don't want to be too flippant about what I'm sure has been a heartfelt and difficult, etc decision, but she looks about as feminine as Merv Hughes.

    Given we have two of Exeter City's finest on CW and being a grecian is a pretty exclusive club I would if either has come across her when she was still a him on Exeweb or elsewhere?

    Nah, don't know of him/her. It actually says later in the article he only went to a few games at City, mainly ING-ER-LAND.

    Anyway Alphington is Plymouth side of the river

    Palace vs Stoke today is as good an excuse as any to post this footage, including Don Rogers in his pomp at 6: 40. ITV's goal of the season in 1973, apparently.

    Was all downhill from him after he left Swindon

    Anyway, what a weird season, another away win, 9 in total, 5 in a row, but abject at home.

    Oh well done fred's team for beating the Crawlies, more exhaustive ****ing coverage from the meedja about the plucky underdogs, forgetting they're massively bank-rolled.

    tbf he looked as if he needed to be running downhill, given how much weight he was carrying. But he did give us a glorious 3 months or so.

    It was odd that no-one came in for him after the 1969 League Cup Final actually.

    Conflicted here, love Joey Cole, hate Allardyce, but on adding it all up, I'm pretty happy about this, mainly because of the stick the Twatteratti and Liverpool fans have given Joe. He's been mentioned along with Bogarde as terrible free transfers. Yet he was injured most of the time, and recently he did okay, but Rodgers wanted rid. Fair Enough, not his signing, but not really anywhere close in the recent Liverpool transfer disasters.

    He'll still end up with League winners medals, whilst Stevie G will end up with none, suck it deluded 'pool fans.

    Oh and man u are losing, which I've been known to like

    Hammers can count themselves unlucky there. I thought they did enough to win it - I was particularly impressed by their ability to score the exact same goal twice - though I won't deny that I do love United being able to bring the best player in the country off the bench to do something like that. Wonderful ball from Giggsy too.

    CPR would probably still prefer to sign Barton than van Persie....

    At one point, my 10 year old asked me about Trevor Brooking, who was shown watching the game. After being told that he was a very fine midfielder, he asked if I meant like Gerrard, or Lampard. To which the answer was in the negative. At which point I was struggling, as English football stopped producing midfielders like Brooking a couple of decades ago. Then Cole sent in those lovely crosses for the West Ham goals, and I had some sort of basis for comparison, remembering how often Brooking did that for Keegan in their England days and any number of Hammers forwards. Much more of this quality of supply, and maybe Andy Carroll will break his duck this season.
