Caught this as the Javelin emerged from the Tunnel outside St. Pancras this morning. OK, the quality is pretty poor, that’s what you get from Camera Phones.

One of those times you wished you had a “proper” camera to hand.

The weather looks as though it’s going to do it’s best to prevent play on Saturday. Hopefully it’ll still be on as we like playing Millwall in the Snow!


Cabbage Patch

OK, didn’t make the trip up to the Northwest today, after last time I thought it wise to stay well away! Instead had a “fun” time round at my youngest’s school erecting Santa’s grotto and getting the festive music ready for the Christmas Fayre tomorrow.

Earlier in the week, doubt had been cast as to whether or not the match would go ahead today. Stockport “share” the ground with rugger buggers Sale Sharks. As most of us will agree Football and Rugby are not ideal bed mates. The beautiful game should be played on a snooker table surface, whilst rugger buggers can play on a cabbage patch.

So the pitch was passed as playable and most of us would admit we feared our chances playing on such a surface, memories of Stamford Beach still being fresh in the memory. Thankfully we needn’t have worried as the Addicks came away with all the points, despite Rob Elliott scoring in his own goal in the last few minutes.

With the first of those crucial periods just around the corner, the lads have played themselves into a strong position. Two points behind Leeds and six clear of the chasing pack. The visit of our near neighbours should prove a good test for the squad and the fans. It’ll be an interesting day at the Valley next Saturday.

Free pens as well

Here at the Arsenal Goonerdome, which is built on the site of the old municipal tip, they give away branded pens that make no mention of the original franchise football team.

Have to say the coffee is good, but the biscuits at the Valley are far classier and tastier!
