    O/T A Grand Week On The English Riviera

    Cracking the flags all but two days and a marvelous week was had , fine hotel , good food and many daytime pints sunk in perfect sunshine at the harbour side .

    Some nice trips out to Dartmouth , Sidmouth , Plymouth and Exeter completed a perfect break .

    Nice to see the country strong and stable and at total peace with itself and Stendel is still our HC on my return this afternoon .

    I could do a Moeen Ali minus the beard , talking of which JLO was in need of some retail therapy on Thursday and I had the unfortunate experience of watching the cheat despatch the England bowling to all parts of Old Trafford , the good thing was the bar was full and the beer relatively cheap by Torquay standards , only 4.10 a pop !!! .

    By mid afternoon I'd had enough of the tw@t and made for the harbour , sunshine and people watching at @ 4.90 a pint ........ for Carlsberg !!

    Talking to a couple of Hartlepool fans in the bar on sunday night who'd come down on a friday to monday gig for their game at Torquay the previous day , they won 2-1 with a late winner .

    We instantly connected with Craig Hignett as their manager who they seem to rate and were very complimentary about us and hoped we beat Boro when we meet , some hope I thought .

    They'd settle to be financially secure and back in league two which kind of puts our present standing in perspective I thought .

    The owners ev set the agenda that "success" is a good bank balance at the end of each year.

    Football--who cares ? Let's be happy if the new recruits this "best transfer window in our history" bring in a profit in two years.
