Their manager sounds like a manic depressive on the radio but he won't tolerate defeat at any cost which I like.

Nah you're thinking of Paul Cox pal, listening to him and Evatt are like chalk and cheese.

No it's Evatt I'm talking about. Has a very monotone voice. Sounds depressed.

I remember Paul Cox and his endless waffle. A lunatic by all accounts.

I hope they go up. Also be nice if wukkie came back in the league. Think it might liven up our lot a bit.

I would have Evatt over Pressley any day. He’s done well on a small budget at club that is no one’s first choice to play. He signs proven players with a mix of youth at experience and I like how he appreciates the fan base

An away trip to Barrow on the train would be good
2h 45 minutes on a Pacer train covering the length of Cumbria. Bring it on.

Say for example we stay up and Barrow get promoted into the league, I wonder what the crowd would be for the home fixture as their place only holds around 5k so would no doubt sell out but on a Saturday at our place I would imagine a 12k crowd and possibly more if we could get the fixture played on Boxing Day - would be like getting a decent draw in the cup as far as attendances go.

Am I aiming too high with those figures and it would be more like 10k?

6 or 7k would be nearer the mark. Barrow isn't a big draw.

Barrow travelled 6-7k in the cup a few years ago so quite plausible they would bring a good number here.

Barrow consider themselves more Lancashire than Cumbrian.

Exactly, just listen to them speak for a start. Not an ounce of Cumbrian dialect in there.

The only reason why the spot was included into the formation of Cumbria was because Lancashire wanted nowt to do with them.

Barrow tickets were free today?

They'll also be miffed as they would have got 3 points today - can't believe Dover didn't stay overnight - it would take a full day to get there - more than 6 hours.

Surprised you can do Dover to Barrow setting off at 9.30 even without any holdups

There's only one way of life and that's your own!!!

I think they were on the 09:30 from Euston, due in Preston at 11:38.

It arrived at 14:19...

2 hours 41 minutes late is not bad for Virgin.

Earlier Evatt Tweet deleted, seems he took a few pelters as the delay on the West Coast was due to a fatality:

Must still be a few of us around who remember seeing Barrow at Brunton Park in the old Div 3N, and then Div 4. It wasn’t thought of as any sort of derby in those days, that was strictly reserved for Workington games.

No surprise there the railways are a shambles with so many ticket prices between A and B and the first announcement you get on a train that is overcrowded with no seats for your overpriced ticket is "if your ticket isn't for a X train then you'll need to pay a supplemental ticket charge"

Renationalise the railways now...

Their delay on a Sat was due to a particularly bad fatality (Happened in the earlier hours but only discovered when light broke)...

That Peado Richard Huckle has just been stabbed to death in prison,sounds to me like a "particular good fatality".
