I actually wonder how Humberside police ever managed to control the Grimsby hordes at the recent pre season “ friendly” against Cleethorpes, they probably had the metropolitan polices horse mounted unit and a couple of squads of SAS at the ready.

I was once told a while back that the reason the police like early kick-offs is that they can utilise officers within there shift pattern and not have to pay them overtime.

I suspect it’s to reduce the pre-match alcohol intake.

Apparently, Mike Newell hated them  


The wife was going away for a girly weekend.
I jokingly remarked  'I don't know whether to spend it watching porn or watching football'
'you may as well spend it watching porn' she replied
That's understanding darling what makes you say that? I asked

She said 'Well you already know how to play football'

In that case it’s a good idea, you don’t want drunk coppers in charge of public safety.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Remember the Donny game, kick off was brought forward to stop us drinking? Donny pubs were rammed with Town fans by 10!!!  That worked well didn't it?
