  • Around the 98/99 mark I was in Tenerife and bumped into a girl I went to school with, we were having a chat and went to the bar and the barman was also in our year at school
  • My brother, sister and I were all born at ten past the hour on a Tuesday. My brother. sister and I all married people with double initials (e.g. AA, SS, MM). I did this twice. My two daughters were born at last orders time (ten to the hour) when pubs used to shut at 11pm and at 2pm on a Sunday. 
  • Since Lennie Lawrence left, hasn’t every time we’ve been promoted been when we’ve had an ex-player as manager ?

    And before Lennie............... Mike Bailey 
  • So, I usually take out the family for Christmas Day lunch. The pub we go to is in Kent so Tier 3. I took the decision to cancel the booking and opt for their cook at home option instead. This was a few days ago. Tonight, I get the result of my Covid test which was asymptomatic positive and we won’t now be able to go in any case. Premonition or what

  • The same number of people were at Charlton’s game as there were at other games...
  • Chizz said:
    Look carefully...


    Cue a newsagent complaining on Twitter that some bloke in a Charlton shirt came into the shop today, refolded all the newspapers, took a picture and left...?
  • Yesterday after JFC scored I said we could get two goals in a couple of minutes as Wimbledon had done, lo and behold Williams then scored.
    Spooky or what?
  • Whenever Charlton score 5 goals in a game, they usually win it...personally, I think that is just a coincidence

  • Many years ago I was on my way home from a game at the Valley and was dropping in to my mum and dads house on my way, they lived just outside Stockport.

    I was on the M25 when I noticed I had been behind the same car for a while. When we got to the M1 junction he went north and I followed and as he drove at a speed I normally drove at and and we had similar motorway driving styles I was happy enough to stay behind him. At J19 he took the M6 and I duly followed and I was now more than curious as to where he was heading and this curiosity increased when he indicated to come off for the M56 towards Manchester as did I. He then came off the motorway at my junction and headed towards Bramhall where my parents lived and by now I am sticking to him like glue to see where he ended up!

    As we neared my parents area I was getting close to where I would turn off and was laughing to myself at how far we had followed each other when his indicator went on to turn right, I was gobsmacked! We went down a couple of residential roads and then to my utter shock he turned in to my parents road - a cul de sac. At this point I actually hesitated before following him.

    As I turned in he slammed his brakes on, jumped out of his car, ran to my door and screamed 'ok, lets just have it out now, at what effing point did I piss you off?' 

    Turned out he lived four doors from my parents and was on his way back from working in Kent somewhere. He had clocked me in his mirror and was doing exactly the same, keeping a steady speed and as we got further in to the journey he was also curious as to how far I would follow. He only got concerned when I followed him in to Bramhall and when I followed him in to the cul de sac he was convinced I was some nutter on his case!  
    You really should take a break on a journey that long! 😉

    He couldn't, he was chasing someone.
  • Many years ago my wife and I traveled in a mini bus from Bangkok in Thailand, north to Chang Mia and Chang Rai.
    We shared the 5 day journey with Margret a very eccentric Australian lady from Melbourne. 
    Some years later we were in Vancouver airport waiting for a flight back to the U.K. when I spotted Margret waiting for a flight back to Australia. 
    She had apparently been touring Alaska in a motorhome.  
    Wow.
  • Was driving back from London earlier listening to LBC and then thought I really want to hear some christmas songs, particularly "Driving home for Christmas", changed the station to Magic and Chris Rea's song was playing.

    The other week was listening to an audiobook and heard the name Lorna Doone, never heard of her before and looked her up.

    The very next morning walking the kids to school and looked up at house that I must have passed 50 times and never looked at it before and sure enough they had called their house Lorna Doone.  Wasn't a case of not acknowledging it before,  I had genuinely never looked up at it before.

    Weird.

    Anyone else experience this sort of witchcraft?
    The name Lorna did not exist before the novel Lorna Doone written by R D Blackmore and published in 1869. My Grandfather came from Devon where the novel is set. My mother's name was Lorna. The Doone or Doune family are said to be an outlawed family connected to the Stuarts. 
    They are said to have made there way via London to the Lyn Valley in Exmoor. Lorna is said to be a corruption of Lorne , also in Scotland. After 70 odd years in exile the Doones accepted an offer to return to Scotland in about 1638.
    My mother told me the origins of her name and of Lorne Doone , the no else set in the 17th century some 170 years before. People  still try to determine what is fact and what is fiction in this Romantic novel. Blackmore was a lawyer.

    gave it's name to the square sausage.

    What did?
