I believe He is signing for Monica Star for this season.  They have a some good players.  Hendrie and Barry in midfield with Byfield and Luke Rogers up front will take some stopping.

Crikey!

Yes Petrov played for Wychall alongside Tommy Mooney and a few other Blues players.  My son played Midfield for them.
David Busst was the Manager but they have packed up now.
Some good players in that League.

That was a really good side! Great second goal. Even Curtis Davies looked completely at home in defence.

Pretty sure that Tarquin Arsenal fan came onto this forum straight after that game complaining they should've got a free kick before the second (which did look one).

Easily one of the best away games I've been to. We had a fantastic record at the Emirates in those times.

Where do they play? I assume you wouldn't need social distancing watching them in a field in the middle of nowhere.

Anyone know what the Moore brothers are up to? I'd love for The Athletic to do an article on Luke. It feels that he fell out of love with the game in his early-20's and went through the motions for a few years before disappearing. Such a shame, he had real talent.

Barry would be a good person to employ within the club.  Id hope he still has a connection with us and we could definitely benefit from harnessing his experience and work ethic, especially with the youth levels.

I half expected him to be announced as part of our backroom staff when Terry was being linked to the Bristol City job.

Gareth doing punditry for BT at Burnley v Everton match, saying he had 12 great years at Villa, apparently in a recent poll 92% said he was a Villa legend, should be 100%, but 92% ain't bad.

He's lucky to have got to 92% in my mind given that pathetic newspaper interview.

We all make mistakes. Enough water under the bridge by now. Was a great player for us for a long time.

Only just seen this Eam, this interview should fill a few of the gaps.

As for Barry my hunch is he'll make a really good manager but not sure if he's doing his coaching badges or wants to go into pundit role full time.

Cheers...Still retains a bit of the enigmatic quality about him. I don't understand his rationale for not turning up for pre-season training at Toronto. Something about being player-traded somewhere else with no say in the matter?

Sounds like he didn't push himself much throughout his 20's but that he's happy enough with his life - he invested in property when he was earning a lot. Between that and working as an agent, it doesn't sound the most stressful life ahead, suits him well I'm sure.

Good to read that interview about Luke Moore. Sounds like he is happy and content and has no regrets about his career in football, which is good.
