  1. Need to spend in it to compete? Well, until the last couple of weeks, Barnsley were in with a decent chance of competing for a play-off place. And have they spent? Well, this season they've sold Mawson, Bree, Hourihane and Winnall for combined fees of £11.5m, whilst buying Bradshaw, Moncur, Mowatt and Kpekawa for a total of £2.1m. So maybe it's not such a 'expensive division to compete in' after all? Unless, of course, you've got an extortionate wage bill for your players (which for the six strikers alone is over £200,000 per week!).
  2. I was just wondering what that 'bleeping' sound was coming from the S6 area? Then I realised that it was the open-top bus being reversed back into its' garage:hihi:
  3. D'ya remember the machines piled up in the far side of the livingroom, Sis? Sadly, the building he used to work in is now a pile of rubble. Ironically, we went to a job there only the other night, when a 'customer' wanted to 'obtain' some copper piping that (allegedly) didn't belong to him. A canine employee assisted in denying him the acquisition.......
  4. Myself and a fellow Sheffield Forum-er are thinking about organising a reunion for former pupils (who like us), went to the school in the mid/late 70's. Some of the lads we remember are :- Tim Paisley, Neil Johnson, Russell Turner, Michael Glenn, Paul Finney, Mark Elsdon, Andrew Cooper, Michael Wall, Paul Browning, Kerry Walker, Andrew Hague, Kieran O'Brien, Mark Ledger, Paul Bembrick, Mark Rhodes, Philip Dyson, Nigel Raven, Johnathan Coulter, Mark Simpson, Craig Skelton, Craig Shipman, Richard Prior, Michael Bullivant, Chris Stubbs, Patrick Walker, John Beighton, John Harrison, Michael Giles, Robert Mason, Neil Hadfield, Paul Shaw, David Ross, Ian Watson, Steven Cook, Karl Rotchell. And the lasses:- Gail Piper, Mandy Gray, Christine Miesczkak, Marie Holmes, Elaine Goddard, Anne Stenton, Karen Senior, Jill Froggatt, Caroline Parker, Prudence Cahill, Ruth Simms, Lisa Casson, Penny Loftus, Anne Benton, Caroline England, Tracey Sutton, Helen Parker, Juanita Porrill, Julie Dabbs, Jill Woodhead, Louise Harrop, Barbara Sellars. So, if you know any of these people, are related to any of them, work with any of them, or even ARE any of them(!), then please let me know - either by adding a line to this thread or sending me a private message. If we get enough interest, then there'll be a night of catching up to look forward to! Regards, Andrew Booth.
  5. Awww, I'm sorry to hear that, Tracey. As you say, very sad. Just like you, I've lost touch with many of them and only 'bump' in to a couple of them every now and again. However, I understand that Michelle now lives in Portugal, Jill in Sweden and Julie in Australia, so perhaps there's no wonder!! That teacher the girls used to line up and kiss - were his initials 'SW' by any chance?!
  6. Hi Tracey. As you were there between 75 and 79, I reckon that you'll remember many of these pupils then?:- Tim Paisley, Neil Johnson, Russell Turner, Mick Glenn, Paul Finney, Mark Elsdon, Warwick Ibbotson, Andrew Cooper, Mick Wall, Paul Browning, Mark Hartley, Kerry Walker, Andrew Hague, Kieran O'Brien, Dean Rogers, Mark Ledger, Paul Bembrick, Mark Rhodes, Philip Dyson, Nigel Raven, Jonathan Coulter, Mark Simpson. And the girls?:- Christine Miesczkak, Gail Piper, Michelle Holmes, Elaine Goddard, Anne Stenton, Karen Senior, Jill Froggatt, Caroline Parker, Prudence Cahill, Ruth Simms, Lisa Casson, Penny Loftus, Alex Hickerman (RIP), Anne Benton, Sonia Brown, Caroline England, Tracy Sutton, Helen Parker, Juanita Porrill, Julie Dabbs. I wonder what they're all doing now?
  7. After Ched's brilliant effort last night, any ideas folks?
  8. Yes, summat like that Mart thanks, although maybe a bit longer. D'ya know where I can get them from?
  9. Looking for a place that sells 6 foot stakes, to assist in securing a fence. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in anticipation.
  10. I've had the 'pleasure' of running up both of them quite recently and would say that the first stretch of Hagg Hill from Rivelin Valley Road is steeper than the similar stretch of Lodge Lane from the A57, but after their first right hand bends, then Lodge Lane is marginally the steeper. (Equally as knackered at the top of both, mind you!).
  11. Maybe if they had been made aware of the problem (by you possibly?), then they could have dealt with the situation.
  12. Who would report that? Not the scroat, I'm sure!
  13. Andy, let me assure that loads of work is going on behind the scenes throughout Sheffield to sort this crowd out. A lot more would be done daily on the streets by the lads and lasses in the patrol cars, but if I could begin to describe the amount and type of so-called "immediate" jobs they are directed to preventing them from doing so, I would still be typing this time tomorrow night.....
