And yes it's good to be back for Summer, it's been very warm pretty much every day I've been back, 35 today, though sadly it's going to get cold and wet on the weekend when the Picnic Races are on near me

I'd probably like Fitz then Joel. I used to love luncheon met when I was a kid. It had to be cut very thin though and smothered in Daddies tomato ketchup.
Bloody yum yum!

Better take your brolly to the Picnic CUP!

It's very cold at the moment over here - and getting colder. Raining heavily on and off too.
Ahh...the delights of Stoke...

Mind you, I took a mate of mine out for a drink last week to my place of work. We had 3 double rum and cokes, two double vodka and cokes and a pint of lager.
Price, to me, only 20 bleedin' quid!

Some things ARE a delight in Stoke!

Stoke City 2-1 Swansea

I was loitering near the ground earlier today when I got caught short and desperately need to use a loo. So I naturally jumped over the nearest local resident's garden fence and used their outside toilet, admittedly without their permission.

Anyway, as I sat there emptying my bladder and bowels, I could hear the supporters leaving the ground,  all singing the following refrain like heroes :

"We thrilled and wanna put our money into some sort of Investment Scheme, maybe a Ponzi
Cha, cha-cha-cha, cha-cha-cha, cha-cha-cha-cha
We've just had a home win against relegation-bound Swansea
Cha, cha-cha-cha, cha-cha-cha, cha-cha-cha-cha."

I must admit, I wept openly at this touching faith in complex financial instruments.

Hello there Kami.

I've been feeling pretty low about how in-bloody-sane women are in all aspects of life (just WHAT the hell is wrong with them?)and their propensity to destroy everyone's humour,in the true sense of the word -  then I've just come here and seen your picture of Tommy - and it really made me smile.

Talking of animals can I put in a good word for the horse named TOMMY T that won the 18.18 at Aqueduct on 30/11/17.

A result that not only pleased his connections and backers, but surely will also have brought a smile to the lips of men too busy stocking their gigantic freezers full of Peppa Pig ice-cream lollies to attend the race in person.

Good evening gents.

Alun, well done to Tommy T!

Hope you've won all the CUPS Joel!

Now then, a particular radio favourite of mine is about to come up on The Sports Bar on TalkSport radio: "You're The Reason Our Kids Are Ugly".

It's where Jason Cundy has to guess whether a song title is a real of fake Country & Western song.
Always makes me laugh.

A catastrophic result for Stoke City as they lose 2-1 away in the third round of the FA Cup to the Isthmian League's perennial strugglers Coventry City, at the Man With No Knees In His Shabby Trousers Stadium.

I walked back to the railway station with the despondent travelling Stoke fans, and for the entire walk and subsequent train journey back to Oatcake Temple Meads, this chant held sway :

'We want Hughes sacked and we’re feeling cranky.
cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-
The time has come to sign the Dream Ticket of LORD TOMMY TOES and the MISSPELLED COUNT EDWARD HANKEY
cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-"

I don’t mind admitting I wept openly at hearing such a moving and profound display of collective good judgement. The sooner that Stoke City employ these innovative thinkers ad inspired man-managers the better. 

You will find no greater admirer that myself of their 1-1-1-1-1-1-1-3  'Big T' formation, probably the finest footballing leap of the mind since Keith Weller played in his tights.

And if the players don't deliver, I am sure they can be 'disappeared' to Tommy's special abattoir.

Hello Joel!

Hope you've won all THE CUPS going in the last few weeks!

Alun, the way it's going, with 'proper' managers turning Stoke down left right and centre it might very well be me and the Count at the helm come Monday!

Dear oh dear, what a particularly Stoke-type pickle has transpired lately.

Realms of discontents moaning their heads off about Hughes on Radio Stoke - without a nanosecond's thought on who could replace him, other than thicko ruminating of "Er, well Sean Dyche would be good" etc etc, without having any idea whatsoever about the way contracts work, personnel, ambition, bloody personal happiness comes into the equation with any managerial job!

A quote from tonights's Oatcake, under the topic 'Depressing Day' has really made me smile:

"Not everyone’s had a bad day, Mark Hughes is probably sat at home in his pants with a massive Cuban cigar and a very fine glass of red wine with the biggest daftest grin you’ve ever seen..."

And so he bloody should have!

If only people could think with a bit of intelligence in Stoke, it might do the place the world of good - but it never happens.

I suppose that's what makes Stoke "Stoke".

Which leads me to another quote from The Oatcake if Roy Keane and MON take the job::

"Shaqiri’s calves will pop the minute that Roy unleashes his icy glare. And as for Nigel’s inane post match questioning...
[Nigel is Radio Stoke's long standing match commentator and after-match interviewer]

F**k it, i’m going to try and enjoy it all in a perverse kind of way. This is the looney tunes club that I fell in love with. I’ve had enough of sensible and stable crap. Bring on the madness and despair

There was more to that post than has appeared.
