I find it difficult to believe that you're the oldest one there - is this a game between two care homes?

 Oldest one there because he's the only one there, the "others" are delusions...

I thought the most contrived and shoehorned pun I'd see today on here was Goatser's Kafka reference on the Prague thread.

I was wrong.

Me! Me!

Been looking for an excuse to play without having to commit to a Sunday league team. You're going to love* my new astros.

*Not love.

Cheers ant.

Ok, so the Flyd Owl has thrown his (Panama) hat in the ring too via text. 

I'm guessing your astros are still tamer than the Flyds, ant. Unless yours also have stiletto 'studs'. 

His are the equivalent of a go faster exhaust on a petrol-engined generator.

He's put slicks on a mobility scooter.

Tsk, tsk. If you'd like a go on it you only have to ask. Goes like a fucking bomb with the slicks on.

Fedora, you fuckwit. A Panama at this time of year? Ye gods. No wonder you liked that hat in the Bookshop.

OK, I'm thinking about getting the banned(sic) back together. 

Wednesday nights through the summer for an Old Blokes' 5/6 a side.

Who would be up for a kickabout and a beer in the Eastleigh area?

I've sent a memo around the calf, hamstring, groin and shoulder departments to see if there's enough interest - I think they'll be up for it.

Is that really really old guy who has the first touch of a rapist and the football vision of a housebrick, going to be there?

His flowery shirts cracked me up!

You see, I pick Wednesdays so @THE Goalhanger could make it, and that's how I get treated.

@The FlydOwl and I play on Mondays and that is pausing for the summer (lots of players work in schools) so I know he'll be there when he can.

@Goatster?

P.S. I've found some lovely Boden high-wicking football tops. Paisley and player names here we come.

Duplicate post 57 minutes apart?? Are you the new Timepeer @Goatboy?

@ant, it's great that you've struggled through to the other side of that 6-month alcohol fog you've been trapped in to respond to my quiz, but now you need to read this and reply saying "Yes, Bletch. I'll play".

Thanks, ta.

I've time-travelled 6 days into the future to say "go on then".

Actually I've barely been drinking over the past month and therefore shed a little weight. Which bodes well for making you like you're standing still even when at full pace. wink

Ok so this could be a goer...except for me. 

I've managed to bugger my knee and am struggling to walk let alone run rings around you again ant (the first 38mm are in the mind, you know).

After my last game with our Monday group I asked if any of them fancied a run out on Wednesdays through the summer and a load said they would. 

So being the big hearted, selfless type I'll try to set-up a game this Wednesday.

Watch this space.

Sad to report that this looks like a non-starter.

Only one of the blokes from Monday night footy expressed an interest (despite 5 or 6 previously saying they fancied it).

Reminds me why I stopped doing this in the first place; it's like herding cats.

So you asked ten people who know you, and only one considered seeing you a second time in a week?

I'd take the positives out of that, good result.
