A Tribute to 2 Legends

Hi Chaps and Chapesses, not been on the forum for a while but I wanted to share this with you.I recently started a new job in a carpet warehouse in Tooting. The owner (who happens to live a stone's throw from Imperial Fields) is a Gooner, but in spite of that he is a football lover.  He rebrands all the carpets that arrive from suppliers with combinations of footballer's names, obviously lots of Arsenal, Chelsea, Fulham, Man Utd, there's even a QPR carpet, Bowles & Marsh obviously as these are the only 2 QPR players anyone has ever heard of. Now, thanks to me you can purchase a lovely bit of carpet from the Juneman & Ives range ! Trade carpet, unit 7, Summers town, SW17 0BQ.

Blimey, handy for the Corner Pin (Wimbledon Dons Speedway's favourite pub) and the By the Horns Brewery !!  Mind you, they brew proper beer, none of that yellow chemical stuff ! (LoL) https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons2/big-grin.png

I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left !

Can't wait for the Darlington & Emery range.

Well done, BEU ! I've recently been in contact with Alan so will let him know. Last weekend he represented Surrey in the Badminton Inter Counties Championship in Wolverhampton. Age Group 70 - 75 !
I have heard nothing about Dave Juneman for years. Any one got any updates ?

Re: A Tribute to 2 Legends

Your wish is my command, Endo old son. Now available from Tradecarpet is a roll of Darlington & Emery. Fittingly (if you'll pardon the pun) it is a remnant available at a knocked down price.
Refresh my memory Endo, is Emery the geezer who Frank Wilson spoke of in glowing terms when we signed him ? said something like "One of the most gifted individuals I've ever had the privilege of working with." Turned out to be a plank. If it's the bloke I'm thinking of his Tooting career lasted about 45 minutes before he was substituted having had about 2 touches of the ball in the entire half, one a Crossfield pass that landed in Poulters Park and the other to toss a ball that had gone out of play back to our full back to take a throw-in. 

Yes DeePee, I'm working beneath the shadows of the cranes constructing AFC Norbiton's new stadium, a few doors down from the brewery where you can by a pint of warm, murky brown 'Witche's Minge' that you real ale snobs are so fond of https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons2/vomit.png

Re: A Tribute to 2 Legends

Yes - it was Charlie Emery.  I feel a bit sorry for the player actually.  He was set up badly by Frank Wilson's introduction.  I think there may have been a reference to Gascoigne - not sure.

Turns out he has been a very good player for Colliers Wood and Sutton Common Rovers and possibly had the talent to move up a division.  But reading between the lines I think he was one of those players who couldn't commit to the huge amount of time that is needed to play at our level.

As for his 55 minutes as a Terror, my memory is of the ball just bypassing him all evening.  If he moved to the left, the ball went right.  And vice versa.  I don't remember him touching the ball!  His substitution was a mercy.

Not saying he was the worst player we've ever had - we even had another 1 game wonder that season in the 7-2 defeat by Chatham.  I had to look him up - Josh Taylor.  He had a similar impact in that game, but he hadn't joined the club under a huge fanfare.

I think Frank must've been referring to Bamber rather than Paul https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons2/thinking.png
