"In The Summertime..."

Whilst pondering the question as to whether or not last seasons on field exploits could have been any worse, the end of the 2006/07 campaign also threw up another conundrum - what to do with a blog about a football team who won’t be playing for the best part of three months?

After initially toying with the idea of doing a season review (and quickly coming to the conclusion that living it once was bad enough) I've decided to keep the blog ticking over for the summer by bringing you a few things from elsewhere on the world wide web; clips and links that may help pass the odd minute or two until Mossley v2007.08 take to the sun baked earth of Seel Park and once again do battle with our highly regarded peers. And Woodley and Curzon too.

Not all of the stuff that’s posted will be football related but it will hopefully amuse or at the very least be a pleasant diversion whilst the clocks slowly tick towards the new season. I will give advance warning though if any of the videos or links offered up for your perusal should only be viewed by people with strong constitutions and not those who are very easily offended or at work!

With all that preamble out of the way it’s on to the inaugural selection: two and a bit minutes of footballers hilariously being hit in the groin...

At this point I'd like to say that no-one featured in any of these clips was severely injured. Probably.

On a related note you might want to check out this clip from the Curzon Ashton - Squires Gate game in March. Whilst Wayne Cahill 'hitting the post' is undoubtedly the reason why the M.E.N. posted the video on the web, the real highlight is the refusal of Curzon's PA announcer to show the slightest bit of sympathy. As Cahill lies there having his testicles retracted from his body with the aid of a torch and an ice cream scoop, Mr Announcer presses on with the clubs official goal celebrations, no matter how inappropriate it may be...

Till next time. Complaints not withstanding...
