Well done Phil getting one over on the bookies, probably won't get such good odds now.phil_in_npton wrote: August 14th, 2023, 9:59 pm Good Evening!
Well done Geoff, your effort deserves support!
I have a distant historic claim to coining the term “Exiles Grandstand “ back in Conference South days, the forum was a much more jovial and amicable place back then.
Then it was commentary only and one joined in with others commenting through the match. Now it is available to watch on I-follow, inevitably the goal flash comes up on the Grandstand before I’ve seen it on the screen so I don’t look at it during the game.
After a wonderful 4-0 result on Saturday I can only see us repeating it again tomorrow night! My pound says we can do it!

The conference south, the days when everyone agreed that the objective was getting back to the football league, and anger was purely directed at Alun Evans. The days when no one Internet connected knew the score until ringing the 'hotline' for Wallace Brown to give a brief description of the match for your quid. The days when fans bought season tickets knowing they would only be able to watch a few home games, to ballance to fact that they would attend away games closer to them, and wanted to make sure they were still funding County more than the opposition. The days of Alex Jones pages of rants, and Rob Santwis' rumours. Off to the King after the game, and eventually bar Amber.
Then to the Conference and Rodney Parade, where the pitch became the enemy. Beating Luton in their lowest league ever, with a young Oli Mc Burnie on loan from Swansea scoring a hattrick. Then Luton trying to scupper Lotto Les buying Christian Jolley. They didn't, and he scored in the playoff final, taking us back to the football league.
Luton may be back in the top division, but that's where they started.............
