      Something Wicked This Way Comes...   10/09/2019

      The Autumn Supporter Giveaway!       Welcome to the very first of the seasonal BCF supporter giveaways! This month also marks one year since I took on the forum, so I want to say an extra huge thank you to all of you for keeping this place going. I have a little bit more to say about that later but, for now, let's get to the giveaway!     The Autumn Giveaway winner will be getting two Penguin Little Black Classics, The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe and To Be Read At Dusk by Charles Dickens. Both of these little books contain three atmospheric short stories, perfect for autumnal evenings. The winner will also get Mary Shelley tea (a lavender and vanilla black tea) from Rosie Lea Tea's Literary Tea Collection (https://www.rosieleatea.co.uk/collections/literary-tea-collection) and a chocolate skull, to really get that spooky atmosphere .   and...   A special treat for a special month. The winner will choose one of the following recent paperback releases from the independent bookshop Big Green Bookshop:       The Wych Elm by Tana French A House of Ghosts by W.C. Ryan Melmoth by Sarah Perry The Familiars by Stacey Halls  The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White   The winner will be chosen via the usual random selection process in one week. Patreon supporters are entered automatically. If you aren't a patreon supporter but you'd like to join in with this giveaway, you can support here: https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum.   I really hope you're all going to like this introduction to the seasonal giveaways. It's been a lot of fun to put together. Other chocolate skulls may have been harmed during the selection process…

Preston are host to a small time team today, you've probably not heard of them before but they are called Chelski or somthing.

 

Should be a breeze really :console:

Sedge.....Hoorah....Andy and his team actually managed to get a game of footie today, despite the yucky weather, pouring rain! I actually watched the game from the car...lol.

 

Was a local cup game and they won it 5-0. All I can say is I'm glad I wasn't washing the strips :console: Looked like they had been playing rugby instead of footie :blush:

 

How did you get on Sedge?

Excellent news for Andy Inver!

 

We continued our defence of the Cornwall Senior Cup with a 2-1 win at Premier Division Liskeard Athletic! We also knocked them out of the League Cup, so they must be getting mighty sick of us by now!

 

Good times at Poltair Park - the committee have announced their intention to apply for promotion to the Premier Divison!:)

I now don't care who wins the FA Cup as long as it's not West Brom :)

 

:lol: I think you may be safe on that one. My money is on Manchester City as much as it pains me to say it.

I'd like to see Spurs in the final, it'd be better than seeing Chelsea or City in it. They just have to get past Leeds first, i would have laughed at that statement a month ago, not now lol

I don't know, but at least it's better than constantly hearing about how Rooney is off to Spain because the club can't afford to stay afloat. They may as well pack up business if they have to sell Rooney just to ''balance the books''.

It's time for something other than protests to happen at games now. The situation is out of control and action needs to be taken to make the Glazers sell up.

I don't understand what business plan they could possibly have :S I know that a club with that stature and history deserves better ownership, no matter the state modern football is in, you can't run a club the way these people are, it's the same as Liverpool, it's an insult.

I don't see how they can make any profit at all, they are idiots.

When they pay the interest on the debt everything else is profit, while they take the money and only pay interest the debt gets higher and higher.

Leeches :) What do you think about the game tomorrow? It's winnable of course, we should have won at Eastlands but the team kind of fell apart after our friend went on a deluded rampage :D

I can feel a win :) It'll be intense, the FA have spoken to both clubs about controlling the players but there is bound to be drama. I never had anything against Tevez until last week but i hope the boo boys are out in force to put him off tomorrow night.

I think we need to win, not because it's the Carling Cup so much, but because they have not won a thing for so long and it could be dangerous to give them some success, especially with the ridiculous money backing them now. It could be seen as a springboard, and we need that springboard to push us on the the bigger prizes at the end of the season. Tevez, i like the guy, i think he's a great player, not immensely talented, but a great forward. He just seems a little dense at times and the agent probably has a hand in his decisions.

33 years since City won anything :):lol::D and if they win one trophy, especially The Carling Cup after all the money they have spent and call that a success, well....
