  2. At least Spurs should be happy if this season gets cancelled as all it would mean to them is just another year of failure.

    A little quiz for those of you already bored senseless self isolating.

    What do the following figures represent for our noisy neighbours?

    58 would of become 59.

    35 would of become 36.

    28 would of become 29.

    11 would of become 12.

    Good luck.

    But in all seriousness, in these difficult times I would like to wish all our hosts on Untold all good health, as well as all the regulars and occasionals, no matter who they are, freind or foe.

    These are tough times so I just want to wish evryone the best of health. Keep safe.

  4. 62 months ago, Graham Poll I believe had this in the Daily Mail:

    If referees’ chief Mike Riley was a manager he would be sacked

    Do you have a similar headline?

    If referees’ chief Mike Riley was a officer in the armed forces, he would be shot for treason.
