Spurs eliminate themselves from secondary competition

January 30, 2011


With two goals beautifully crafted by Dawson starting things off, and then a combination of the efforts messrs Assou-Ekotto, Gomes and finally Bassong, we created four memorable finishes that the opposition must have loved watching. Judging by Redknapp’s stupid team selection, it was quite clear that the club had no intention of letting a decent […]

Blackburn KGH celebrates 16 years ,what a night!

January 30, 2011


Over 1300 were at The King Georges Hall last night to celebrate our 16th anniversary. A truly memorable night with all 3 rooms working really well. I spent most of the time upstairs in the Northern Room where BBC Radio Lancashire’s Keith Fletcher got the night off to a great start with a superb selection […]

January 25, 2011


This coming Saturday night, January 29th, we celebrate 16 years of Soul Nights at the King Georges Hall, Northgate, Blackburn. Since we started back in 1995, initially with JAZZ FM and more latterly SMOOTH RADIO we have run approaching 100 soul nights and attracted over 100,00 soul lovers from all around the UK. On behalf […]

A useful point gained, Barcodes 1-1 Spurs

January 23, 2011


On a pitch clearly not suited to our passing game, we eventually switched our method of play away from close passing to long ball, and from a great flick on by Peter Crouch and good work by man-of-the-match Steven Piennar , Aaron Lennon was able to brilliantly send two Newcastle defenders the wrong way and […]

An interesting weekend of football…0-0 v Man U

January 17, 2011


In isolation, probably a decent point and another clean sheet, but you’ll see now why the 2 points needlessly dropped at Birmingham and 3 thrown away at Everton recently have now become so harmful. Those poor results put the pressure on us and mean that in our remaining fixtures we need to compensate by beating […]

Luxury Soul weekender #15, Blackpool

January 12, 2011


Thanks to everyone who attended yet another tremendous event at Blackpool last weekend. Highlights for me were the fab Cool Million show on the Friday and Michael Henderson with Jean Carne on the Saturday, in particular when they performed “At the Concert”. The Saturday afternoon Latin/Jazz session with Tony Cooney and Super Friends worked a […]

Oh please …not Fulham again!

January 11, 2011


Well, it’s what you might call a hiding to nothing encounter as we once again meet Fulham in the 4th round later this month. Sooner or later they are going to beat us, and it was only last week I was consoling myself at the prospect of not meeting them again as they strengthen they […]

Everton 2, Spurs 1 …new faces required?

January 6, 2011


So the run comes to an end with two extremely poor defensive lapses by our goalkeeper against a mediocre Everton side costing us big-time. David Moyes looked the most surprised man in the ground when they grabbed a late winner after Gomes had failed to deal with a straightforward shot by Saha, and the defence […]
