A Quick Pint then it's off to Edgeley Park

The home of my local football club when for years in the shadow of two Manchester giants United and City but with new owners a sense of good times are just around the corner - - -

Last game there were four of us watching a hard fought battle on the pitch and enjoying good company - - -what I missed last season.
Some of those hot dogs with running red sauce are messy but not to be missed glad you liked Stephen.

Thanks, Nigel. A good read. I've been to a fair few non-league games where there's a lot of the same atmosphere but no chance of a crusty pie. Just a possibly live hot dog and a sugar spoon shared about 100 times. All good memories though.

I think at the moment we seem to be buying more and more players at a higher level. They will have to play as a team and the manager will be safe.
I fear for the Newcastle manager his job is on the line with the team on a poor run.

Always like a football poem, Nigel. I even have one about Stockport myself, though it's not like this one. I hope the new owners don't go in for dismemberment or torture, or I wouldn't fancy being the manager. As for Newcastle ... from Northern Rock and Wonga, to Mike Ashley and the Saudis.
