The one with COCKS
17 February 2004
Another week, another postbag. But this time: Letter of the Week. There's no prize for it yet, but you never know when we might start giving free stuff away. So direct your blatherings and blitherings to email@example.com for your chance to win free stuff (perhaps)
Rowson row goes on
In reference to your postscript, I don't normally date 'Jeffs' but if we can sit and slag off that prick Rowson for a couple of hours then I will happily oblige. His nadir? Something along he lines of "Ver(n)on, Johnson and Zola might have been the scorers but it wasn't Chelsea." No shit Sherlock, mainly because they haven't got any players with brackets in their name, or anyone called Zola. I might have to buy the Hull Daily Mail just to get my fix.

I can see it now, a Steve Livingstone-run side: do fuck all for 89 minutes then try and get in a fight in the last minute to try and show you have a bit of heart. Still, I suppose it sounds like a mild improvement?
from Paul Wright
Letters Ed responds: Looks like Davo took that advice on Saturday... do you think Livvo is already pulling the strings behind the scenes?
In last week's letters someone said they had found a mug commemorating Town's rise to Division Two in 1982, you commented that it was a good find. Damn right it is. Town got promoted to Division Two in 1980 and didn't get relegated again until Mike Lyons took over. I would suggest either the mug is a fake or someone got their dates mixed up.
P.S. I don't like Alan Buckley, he is not very tall and he speaks funny.
from Mr B.L.Ackandwhite-Barmy
Letters Ed responds: Doh!
How about Kevin Drinkell for Town manager? He has experience with Stirling and Montrose, is a Town legend and is currently writing a column for my local rag the Stirling Observer.
from Tim Smith
Letters Ed responds: This is for entry in to the worst suggestions list, yeah?
Letters Ed responds: Congratulations on winning the first ever 'Letter of the Week'. And I can finally finish off that crossword now: Faucets or valves by which the flow of a liquid or gas can be regulated (5)
Gordon is a moron
I have been avidly following the search for a new scapegoat for next season's demise to the Conference. Having read the whole world's theories on who will take over our beloved church of the 89 minutes I have come up with a new suggestion: Mr Gordon Strachan has indicated he wishes to have a couple of years away from football... what better place to see very little football played than our own beloved BP? Mr Furneaux start brushing up on the gaelic, you know it makes sense... which is more than Gordon does.

A smug git writes
Me and Mrs. Genius are in Gran Canaria, it's boiling! Hear it's chucking it down there. Shame! According to what limited papers we can get here Jevons' goal was a bit lucky. Mr McGhee certainly wasn't happy. Hope it chucks it down at the match tomorrow.
from Sir Michael Shelton OBE
Letters Ed responds: Yeah, cheers. Actually it's 30 degrees here and they're giving away three free pints at the match tonight. Maybe.
