I was at that game, went with Frank. I think Hardwood scored for us?

We were two down and drew 2 2. I thought Weimann hit both?

No recollection of the match whatsoever, even having Googled it. Whatever happened to that Colchester manager?

McGurk's been decent in the lower divisions, scored a few for likes of Burton and Morecambe although don't know who he plays for now.

I used to drink with a bloke who worked with Adam McGurk's dad. He reckoned the Villa had bought the family a house to get him to sign for us as a youngster.

I don't know if its the same now (and it;'s probably worse) but the amount of money thrown at young kids is incredible. Harry Forrester was, apparently, given a million pound contract when he was 14.

Adam McGurks dad sold my parents a new kitchen and bathroom, absolute fucking cowboy.
