Good afternoon gents.

Joel, the commentator said at one point during the Melbourne's Nathan Jones clip that he was 'inspirational', well that's just what Stoke's Nathan Jones is!

I bloody love the bloke already!

After 2 disappointing results, The Mighty Potters absolutely blitzed Championship leaders Leeds at the Bet 365 last Saturday!
It was wonderful to listen to on the radio and Nathan's tactics, team selection and subs were all spot-on.

It's not just that though, it's the bloke himself. He's so genuine, avid, enthusiastic, honest and 'real' that you can't help but think he may turn out to be Stoke's best manager ever - even at this very early stage.

I'm not getting carried away and even if Stoke finish nowhere this season, I truly believe he's the bloke to take the club forward.

Without doubt, he's been 'gone too long' - and I hope he stays forever!

Seems like the Supremes were ahead of their time!
But that's great that you like him and is getting a result and you are happy with him! The Swans have been lucky enough to have had only 2 coaches in the last 16 years or so, both a very very good, but it could have been a lot different of people power had not spoken....

Hello GOG!
It's very good to see you again after all this time.
Hope all is going well with you.

Joel, it would be great if you managed to get across to Stoke again - and we could go to the Monkey Forest (as previously mentioned) and Trentham Gardens, so you could see Stoke does have a few good places to visit and it isn't as big a doss hole as it looks from 'the inner'!

If you have 10 mins or so to spare, have a look at the highlights of Nathan Jones' Stoke V Leeds last Saturday, or cut to 5:55 to get to the nitty-gritty.

Just look at Nathan's response to the crowd at the end of the match. It's like he's been there for years, not 3 games!

Bloody love the bloke!

Hi Joel!

It's good to know Tommy S is settled in Australia. He was a cracking bloke and an excellent goalie.

It's such a pleasure to read The Oatcake at the moment with all the Stoke fans bathing in the love-in with Nathan!
They're a terrible moaning bunch when things are going wrong - and as they have been at Stoke for the last 2 and a half years plus, it's been nothing but a drudge to read at times - but when they're happy it's one of the most optimistic places to go, with some of the funniest comments going!

At the moment they've decided not only do they love Nathan - but also his jacket!
Speculation has been mounting what make it is and it's been decided it's a Barbour, so now they're wondering if they should all buy said jacket and turn up looking like Nathan at the next home match.
Wouldn't surprise me if they did!

Soon after our second child was born back in 1993 my wife decided there was no further need for STROKES- vinegar or otherwise. By the time I'd realised the FULL PORTENT of this CHASMIC shift in the POWER STRUGGLE I was already DEFEATED!! Like a combined Australian Cricket XI/Wallabies XV circa 2018 I speak earnestly of putting in the hard yards at training,keeping to my structures,looking forward to the challenges ahead but deep down I know it's over.

The Magpies are easily the most dominant bird. I saw a 'baby' Magpie chase away an adult Currawong the other day despite the Currawong being an adult and larger.


The Magpies don't like me sharing food with other birds and do their best to thwart me. Often very successfully. The Magpies are the boldest and fearless and take food from my hand while the Butcher Birds and others are more timid. They get very close but not as close as the Magpies. I think if the Magpies didn't get infuriated by competitors and chase them off then the other birds would get to the hand feed stage. As it stands they look like German troops in Normandy 1944 forever staring up at the sky!!

Kamikazee's Australia Day Trip Report

I've been sinkin' Tinnies like Barry Mackenzie in Earls Court 1972 for the last decade in preparation for Australia Day 2019. I read in the paper the other day that Green Activists (that's a pseudonym for CXNTS) consider the Australian flag to be a symbol for White Supremacists. So I'm off to K-Mart to stock up. I've got Aussie flag t-shirts,reg grundies, hat,thongs,stubby holder plus an Aussie flag that I've tied around my neck and flows out behind me majestically like a cape. Also comes in handy if there's no bog roll at the Royal Albert pub.

Something is missing though. A TATTOO. That's what I need to be truly authentic. Unfortunately there is no Tattoo Parlour in my vicinity. My suburb is much too middle class to have any of those scumbags. Btw why is it a Tattoo Parlour? What's Parlour about an overweight biker defacing the skin of teenage girls? Anyway. Fxck it. Where was I? Oh yeah so I headed out to St Mary's to a "Parlour" to get myself INKED!! This is how it went.

Me: Were you in Sons Of Anarchy?

Tattoo Bloke (TB): No.

Me: You sure? You really look that fat cxnt in it. That ugly fxcker.

TB: Are you serious?

Me: Forget it. I need a big Australian flag tattooed across my back. It's a symbol of White Supremacy apparently.

TB: Indeed.

Me: And of the White Nationalist Patriarchy. (I took a long swig out of my can of Pale Ale and eyed him smugly.)

TB: So I've heard.

Me. I also want something on my forehead. Get this. You'll love it. MADE IN AUSTRALIA. Eh? Eh? Whaddya reckon?

TB: Hilarious.


He told me the price and I passed out. That was a good thing and a bad thing. The good thing was I didn't feel a thing. The bad thing was I wasn't there to correct a small error. When I woke up I surveyed my new tatts.

TB. (holding a mirror) How do you like your new Aussie Flag back tattoo? Looks to be oozing Nationalism to me. It's very hostile.

Me: You don't think it's too hostile do you? It's borderline Fascist from this angle. (Twisting around to get a better look)

TB: Not at all. I'm thinking Captain Cook meets National Front. Navigational yet intolerant. And the navy blue has really hidden your back pimples.

Me: True but I'm not seeing any Patriarchy here. Where does it say "Get me a beer B1TCH". How can anyone tell that I've been paid more than women all my life and that my mother LOVED ME and HATED my sister.

TB: Eh?

Me: I'm only nitpicking. It's amazing. It truly is. I don't know how you cxnts do it. I mean how exactly do you do tattoos.

After a brief explanation I'm embarrassed to say I passed out for a while. When I come around the convo continues.


TB: You alright there Kamikazee? You still look a bit green. Sorry.

Me: BEER!!!!!!!!  (He gets me a TINNIE)

TB: So anyway let's check out the forehead. (He flourishes a mirror).

Me: WHAT THE FXCK????!!!!

TB: Problem?

Me: It says MADE IN LONDON. LONDON??? It's meant to be Australia. What the FXCK is London? I look like a fxcking skinhead!!

TB: I kind of thought you were. All your mad right wing chat I just assumed you were a skinhead.

Me: What? That's called PATRIOTISM mate. Anyway Skinheads are all BALD CXNTS.

TB: And your point is?

Me: AAAaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrgggghhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!

I remember back in the summer of 2015/16 I was renovating my father's house and Kerry O'Keefe had a radio show on Saturday afternoon. That's when I fell in love with him. His mad humour. Anyway one day he had Jeff Thompson on for an interview. So Thommo tells this great yarn. Back in the day he gets invited to this super rich dude's house for lunch at his country estate. The other guest is Donald Bradman.It's the 1970s and alongside Dennis Lillee, Jeff Thomson is the most feared bowler in the world. So Jeff enjoys lunch with some banker or whatever he is and his wife and his teenage sons and the Don telling stories and boozing up. (Not Bradman. He never drank alcohol) After lunch the banker suggests they play a bit of cricket out in the backyard. So they troop out and find the backyard is about an acre of mowed lawn with a pitch and stumps. So Thommo bowls some slow lobs over to the Don who is in his late 60s by this time and hasn't played competitive cricket in decades.

So Thommo thinks this is great. Lobbing over a few softies for the Don to whack. It's a dream come true. So anyway the Banker insists his boys have a bowl at the great man. Thommo looks in alarm as this 17yo walks back about 30 metres before charging into bowl a missile with as much velocity as he can. Thommo can't fxcking believe it. He looks around. The Dad is nodding approvingly as the ball sails past the Don. As do a few others.

Thommo is about to say "hey come on" when the Don puts up a hand to silence him and takes off his suit coat. Next ball he smashes for four. And every other delivery that comes his way. The Banker is a mixture of absolute awe of the Don and disappointed his Representitve cricketer sons got smashed by a man approaching 70!!

Does anyone have any memories of when they were five or six years old? I remember my Mum and Dad visiting their friends on a Friday or Saturday night. Dad would play snooker or whatever in the garage of his mate's place. My mum would sit in the kitchen with the other wife and chatter like machine guns. The best bit was this. The bit I remember most. About midnight we'd go home. We'd get in my parent's VW Beetle me in the back seat. My Dad OUTRAGEOUSLY over the legal limit for alcohol. Not that anyone cared much in 1970. It was a windy back road home only 2 kilometres. I'd go to sleep.

I'd pretend to be a asleep when we pulled up at home. My eyes shut but listening. My Mum and Dad saying,"he's asleep carry him in." My Dad picking me up and putting me in bed. Wrapping the blankets around me and giving me a little kiss on the forehead. A faint waft of KB Lager. My Dad was my world then. He'd been at sea. He'd played Rugby League for Easts. He'd been a boxer. While he sat on the bed next to me patting my back I went to sleep as happy as any person has ever been.

Nuh. Some good stuff there including an Australian made guitar owned by Keith that apparently fell apart while he was playing it.

I remember seeing Enter The Dragon back in about 1975/76. The Bruce Lee Kung Fu flick. I was about 11 or 12 at the time. My sister took me. She is 12 years older than me so she would've been 23 or 24. She's a good sister. I can't imagine she would want to see a Kung Fu movie. She topped the State in her HSC exams in 1969 or whatever so she is a massive egghead. It turns out that intelligence is a fleeting thing because these days I'm loads smarter than that old ****.
