Putting this here because I can't think where else to put it, but it's tinpottery on an international level, which is always fun.
Hallam Hope has been turning out for Barbados this year as his dad's from there. He scored two goals in a 2-2 draw with Guyana. The Guyanese football association clearly haven't read the rules on this, because they're appealing to CONCACAF to void the result because they think the fact Hope once played for England's under 19s will make him ineligible.
To be fair, a 12:30 kickoff with away coaches departing at 6 am, there's no way that there would be a big away following, especially with our current form and the expectation of a cupset. I'm surprised that 300 or so got there what with the train strike AGAIN. Me? Surfaced at 10am following an 11pm finish at work plus travel the night before. Drove over to Kingsmeadow to watch on BT Sport. Got caught in traffic and had to listen to the first 25 minutes on iFollow. WE WERE DIRE. Thankfully things got better in the second half although that's the 5th own goal we've conceded this season.
Gateshead announcing on Christmas Eve that our Boxing Day game at their place is now no longer all ticket and will be £15 on the door, tickets cost £15.00 with a £1.50 'handling fee' cos you could only get tickets online, we took 2,000 there last season, so at this point in time, everyone who wanted to go already has a ticket.
'Visit North Korea' have brought an advertising board at @Blyth_Spartans! They say they're "proud to help support the great English game" adding "we aim to help people broaden their horizons & think differently about the world." Pic: @Nonleaguenomads
