    What're the odds of the EFL responding to this by fining Chichester £36,000?

    I can't believe the number of ex FL teams as I peruse the National League results these days!

    One of the nicest men you could wish to meet and incredibly modest too. I feel very lucky to have met him a couple of times & also his wife & grandson. He enjoyed chatting & I had the pleasure of telling him he was the best manager we'd ever had to which he shook his head in a no,no no mode <laugh> I think that was 1982 when we won the cup with Keith Burkenshaw who was also a really nice guy. I was lucky enough to be at the reception after the bus parade which is where my avatar was taken. Clive was so patient 'cos this was pre digital cameras & the prehistorical flash bulbs kept failing. It took at least three bulbs but we got there in the end. I still have that CF programme, signed by all the team, Bill N & Chas & Dave. I have many photos of everyone there including me holding up the CUP. Lovely, happy days, I could ramble on for hours <laugh>

    I got a reminder earlier that I was on holiday in the lake district 32 years ago this week, Which got me thinking, we went to Bloomfield Road that week to see Blackpool v Northampton we got in all 4 of us for a fiver through a side gate. That was first league match that I went to. I have now been to about 500 and visited 38 different grounds. There are only 3 league teams that I haven't seen live, 2 of them have only been in the league for a short time Forest Green and Salford and the other is Liverpool.

    Have you deliberately avoided the Scousers or something?

    It's not really something I was aware of until yesterday, when as a result of reminiscing about the trip to Blackpool, we started to compare notes on where we had been and who we had and hadn't seen.

    I think that I have documented here before that I have attended more Gills matches than Spurs, hence seeing all the lower league clubs who have been in the league for more than 2 years (and a few who have gone by the wayside), so I haven't deliberately avoided Liverpool, but just not been in the right place at the right time, and no cup ties for the scousers in Kent!

    Seems as good reason as any :emoticon-0119-puke:

    Could also be that neither Spurs or the Gills have ever played a competitive fixture with Forest Green (or Salford)
