That’s what I thought.

And I was right.

My ankles are like James Caan’s in Misery.

Bletch’s friendliness made me realise I should be over here more. I am basically lazy and easier to use saintsweb (Tapatalk) and forget about this place. Appears to be thriving.

so miss playing football but playing 3/4 times a week for 20+ years and subsequent impact to knees, ankles,hamstrings, groin I would be foolish to sign up.

Yeah, that describes most of us I’d say.

I was told about 7 years ago that my arthritic knee could only be fixed by a replacement. Physio, lots of walking and weight loss mean I’m still kicking a ball.

As someone once said to me…

You’re a long time stopped

By which I think he meant that once you decide not to play anymore, your life is full of those regrets embodied in your post.

See you Tuesday?

:lou_lol:

Re Tapatalk - papster has done some great work on mobile support for sotonians.com since the early days and it’s much better - albeit not as slick as Tapatalk.

So Bletch doesn’t take prisoners then, Goat? :lou_surprised:


#224

OK geriatrics, we’re looking really bad on numbers again for this week.

Can anyone scramble to get other players?

I need to make a decision about cancelling today so that I can get an 11-a-side game for Monday.

Will keep you posted…


#225

I’m on call this coming week, which tends to preclude leaving the house between the hours of 8pm and 8am. I can see if I can persuade a colleague to cover the hours of 8-11pm on Tuesday (I’m also going to have to see if anyone will take 12-6pm on Saturday so I can go to the Sunderland game); if I can’t do that I can’t turn up.


#226

I think the Bournemouth game all but scuppers Tuesday kickabout this week. Annoying clash…


#227

Going to cancel this week (1st) and will cancel next week too (8th).

Suggest we make the Old Blokes footy an as-and-when match.

What I’ll do is pick a date at some point in the future that we can all commit to, and then book.

Watch this space.


#228

Old Blokes, can I see how we are set for this Tuesday 8th?

I still have two bookings with Fleming Park and they won’t refund, so I will have to keep moving the bookings until they are used.

Show of hands?

If we have a core I’ll send out the text invite, if not I’ll move the booking again.

Cheers.


#229

OK for me.


#230

Yeah!


#231

The 8th is good for me.


#232

Not for me I’m afraid. Following week is grand.


#233

We’ve got 9 at the moment with 1 probably,so I reckon it’s on.

We’ve also got THE Cat joining us from t’other forum.

>playing (9): THE Cat, johnh, rallyboy+2, goatboy, fowllyd, rooney, bletch
>not playing (1): ant
>not sure (0):
>no response (6): ponty, mick, andy, javier, jamie, ed


#234

Can I be in Rooney’s team please? :lou_smiley:


#235

I can be upgraded to a ‘not sure’. My Tuesday’s clear now, but it’ll depend on whether I’m fighting fit.


#236

ant, can you reply to the text with a

?

In the message?

I need to test my code to see if sending multiple statuses works.


#237

Got the reply message, did it change my status your end? Very smart if so.


#238

Yep, that worked.

More importantly, I got a text to tell me that one of the players has changed their status. Pleased with that.

I might market this.

BTW if you text s or i to the number, you’ll get the current status back (s sends basic numbers, i sends back player names and so results in longer / multiple texts).

I’ve also bestowed upon the system a little artificial intelligence.

It was able to tell me that you’d be no great loss as all you can do is run *.

* That should ensure you turn up!


#239

If it was purely a case of my own choice, I’d be there like a shot! But I’ve had a migraine and fever since Wednesday. If I’m not better by Tuesday I’ve been advised to take a trip to the GP. :slight_frown:

So we’ll see!


#240

Yeah, I used to be a hypochondriac, but then…

Hope that clears, mate - migraines ain’t no fun, no way, not never.

Anyway, we’re at 10 with one probable (Jamie and his magic lung) + one possible (ant ran).
