TAPIBAW No 61 - Palmerstown Rangers (Ireland)
Welcome to the Athletic Union League Division 2A (Saturday), where alongside Palmerston play such renowned teams as Inchicore Athletic, Green Park* and the two Uniteds of Ballydun and Baldoyle.
* we don't think that there is any link between this team and the London Underground station of the same name...
The lads of Palmerstown were bottom of the league last time we looked, but seem to have been playing their games in a good spirit, unlike some of the teams in the more senior AUL divisions as their press release shows:
"The League has
decided to send out Match Observers to all Premier A and Premier B games
due to the level of abuse coming from the touchline. Any club official or
club whose supporters are found guilty of abusing a Referee will be dealt
with very severely. You have been warned".
TAPIBAW No 63 - Sports Interactive (England)
The phrase motley crew springs to mind but pictured above is the Sports Interactive XI based in Islington, North London. On the far right of the picture is Morpeth-born Toon fan and NUFC.com regular, Grant Appleyard.
We suspect the burger van lurking in the background is actually the team bus, judging by the physique of some squad members. And we know who ate all the pies, eh Mr Woolly Hat??
Grant and his associates are the people responsible for Championship Manager, the popular footie management game. Judging by recent results it seems that our lads simulate a better game than actually play it....
TAPIBAW No 64 - Badgers (England)
A typical Saturday morning, and while many of us are on the road to wherever the Mags are playing or shivering by some touchline watching the juniors, a fair few are tuning in to Skysports for their "Soccer AM" show.
hosted by Chelsea/Torquay fans and featuring non-celebrity
guests like Neil Ruddock, "AM" remains consistently
entertaining and amusing. And, in the case of the Brian
Kilcline arm-wrestling challenge, frankly bizarre.
TAPIBAW No 65 - Carterton Town (England)
to the boys from Kilkenny Lane in deepest Oxfordshire we turn this time
out, collectively known as Carterton Town,
