Any football fans running VLM? If so, what about a regular chat on your team/training  over the winter months.

Im up for it Bluebird.What sort of time you expecting? I,m looking for 4/4.15. Did it in 06 and managed 4.40.Going to put in more miles this time and go for 22/23mile longest runs instead of 20,as really suffered in last few miles last time.ON THE BALL CITY.........

   ROY KEANE is a football genius  HA..HA..HA.

Hi Canary, i'm going for 3;45 or therabouts. I last ran it in 2007 & was on for 3:30 at the 18 mile mark but suffered badly in the last few miles & scraped a sub 4 by 13 seconds! So i'll be aiming for a few more longer runs as well. As for football, watched the game against Leeds  on Sky & was well impressed with Norwich, they got the ball down & played some good football.Definately look like play off contenders after the worst possible start.As for Cardiff, we're one point off the leaders & playing well, but after last seasons fiasco i won't get excited until VLM comes around & we're 7 points clear! As for Roy Keane he's definately seemed to have lost the midas touch & to think he was being tipped to replace Fergie!

Keep on running.

Davey Jones has got you boys going well.You were unlucky last season.Like to see Peterboro stay up but looks unlikely.As for us,we pay 3grand aweek to a bloke who cant even kick a ball properly.

Cheek......we are averaging 6000+ at home this season (and some teams bring less than 80 supporters!) and we have had over 10,000 for a Tuesday night game this season. Not bad for a non-league team!

Oh, and we are currently 6 points clear at the top of the Premier Non-League League!

Bloody hell, that's cracking crowds for the conference, who've you got tomorrow?

F**king hate Cardiff.

Have had horrible experiences with their 'fans' over the years, No doubt the OP is one of the nice ones, but believe me, that club has a disproportionate number of nasty followers.

Running commentary, sorry to hear about your experiences with Cardiff.Unfortunately we have been hijacked by a nasty element who seem to come out of the woodwork against certain opposition.The majority of City fans are probably some of the nicest & passionate fans you could meet but it's the same old story of a minority spoiling it for the majority.In truth,there's rarely any major incidents these days & CCS is probably one of the safer grounds to visit these days with coaches arriving straight outside the away end.Unfortunately innocent fans (scarfers) have been targeted just for being Cardiff , thankfully the days of Cardiff being a no go area seem to be a thing of the past & you can now see opposition colours walking to the ground alongside City fans, this would have been unknown 10 years ago.By the way, what's your team?

We have Thurrock from Conference South at home tomorrow Bluebird in the 4th Qualifying round of the F.A. Cup..........fingers crossed!

Won't be much of a crowd, probably about 3500 i would guess as they won't bring more than about 80!

Then Sw*ndon away in the next round if you please!

Good incentive for you to win today! Do you still play at the Manor ground?Wnt there a few times with Cardiff & with it being compact it always generated a good atmosphere. All the best.

Keep on running,

No we have a new stadium now about 2 miles away.....a bit modern and souless if I am honest!

Maybe we should play Cardiff after we knock Sw*ndon out!  

24/10/2009 at 16:07
We've also moved to a new stadium & to be honest i find it bland & souless,they're all starting to look the same.

Yeah, it's a shame as I'm sure there are plenty of decent Cardiff fans but I've had the misfortune of coming up against some of the not-so-nice both in london and Cardiff, and unfortunately it does colour one's feelings towards the club. Unfair, but that's human nature I guess.
