    Although not really in the Christmas spirit the word schadenfreude springs into mind though I only really wish it for those who have already done the dirty on others. Especially if they thought they would get away with it!

    No. I am at home in Radcliffe with my iPad and a not too joyous wife. I can only get to games now when my beautiful granddaughters shove me in a car and drive me there. I wish we could have a Turfites Talk meet up sometime but what venue?

    The Brun Lea on Manchester Road is a good spot, beer is cheap, food not bad and you can keep adding tables when extra guests arrive!
