Nothing to write about....

Sorry that this blog is not being updated as regularly as it should be .....there is no "On The Road" football to report on, just "On The Road" misery....
Why, oh why does this flippin country come to a grinding halt when we get snow. OK - I realise that the amount of snow just recently has been unusual, but all the roads are truly knackered -- and is there a gritter to be seen? Also, over 350 schools in Nottinghamshire are closed - they never closed them when I was at school. Even in the winter of '63 when it was so cold the bloody sea froze, we had to go to school.....and let me tell you, that was a very, very cold winter.
So, no non-league football because there is snow on the pitches. We used to clear the lines and play with an orange ball when I were a lad... have we all gone soft? Snoods, gloves, ladies tights -- whatever next, players running around wrapped in duvets? I have just been bought some long johns by my travelling buddy Kev, but now his wife wants me to model them for her! Believe me Sue - me in them long johns is not a pretty sight..you know the old saying about "looking like a bag of shit tied in the middle"? That's me!!!! A body that's only suitable for radio!!! So -- we wait for the thaw.....and hope that we are soon back " On The Road" and our visits around the local grounds can resume. Last year we lost almost three weeks after Christmas, here's hoping that doesn't happen again.

    As for the long johns - she said they've got to be better than the lace briefs you normally wear..............
