  1. Mansfield Town demonstrated to our friends from Wiltshire that it doesn't matter how many fans you have if your team is pants and you attitude despicable. Long live Mansfield and a plague on Swindon.
  2. Bet you didn't have queue on the vale car park for that hotel room Booked it 2 months ago!!
  3. How many of Mansfield’s tickets have been sold to Forest fans making a weekend of it?

  5. Well said, Paul. Is it true that more children die from being shot in the US each year than die in road accidents?
  6. From another message board I use: "On the subject of Ted Cruz, I was once in a Q&A with some leading US CEOs, White House lawyers, heads of business groups and the like. This was early 2016 when Cruz was going against Trump. One of them said: "I went to college with Ted Cruz. I've considered him a personal friend for more than half my life and I know him very well. That is why I say he should not be allowed anywhere near political power." And that's his FRIEND talking. "

  9. I wonder if this will encourage Darrell and his family to move to the Midlands?
  10. Jumping ship at Swindon and off to Charlton.
  11. Lewis Cass has been offered an U23 contract by Newcastle.
  12. I don't think the Democrats want to repeal the 2nd Amendment. They want gun control - the sort of thing we have in this country that allows people like my brother to buy a gun for sporting purposes (clay pigeon shooting in his case) but prevents an 18 year old with mental health issues from walking into a shop and buying a military assault rifle. I can't see that such controls in any way lead to any sort of dictatorship??
  13. I've seen Joan at a number of away games this season Hartlepool being one of the recent examples
  14. Boris had no idea what that was about! Vale is the Latin for farewell - I wish Boris the Classicist would say that and beggar off.
  15. You can change any amendment to the constitution. The 18th amendment (prohibition) was repealed in 1933. The 2nd amendment which was ratified in 1791 stated “ A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed”. The desire for a well regulated Militia was understandable at a time when America had just won its independence and feared a backlash from Britain. The sort of arms which citizens could bear were muskets which fired a single shot and took ages to reload. There was no expectation that weapons which fired dozens of high velocity shots in a matter of seconds would become available 200 years later and brainless folk would imagine that the 2nd amendment referred to them.
  16. The last time we were at Wembley was a couple of years ago to do the stadium tour. It was fascinating. We were taken all round the dressing rooms, up to the media area, the posh seats and out onto tier 2 at one end of the stadium. The view from there was great and when the guide had stopped doing her chat, my better half just yelled VALE at the top of his voice! The rest of our party just laughed out loud.
  17. You can travel to whichever station you want and walk around the whole stadium. Bobby Moore is at the end of Wembley Way. If you haven't been to the new Wembley you'll be astonished how different it is from the old one, particularly all the buildings and shops round about.
  18. Texas shooting: Fifteen killed in attack at US primary school WWW.BBC.CO.UK Madness
