There is nothing we love more here at Jammy Toast than listening to some of our favourite tunes. From time to time we will post a music video from an artist or genre that we think will be enjoyable to you; our friends. We often feature music that you may not have come across before, or music that maybe you just missed the first time around. Try and listen with an open mind, you never know, you may find something you can add to your iPod. If you have any music videos you would like us to feature then drop us a line – we are always happy to listen to requests but we cannot promise to feature everyone’s favourite…
Hi everyone, it is nice to be back after our little break. I thought I would change the name of my column because I am not just covering Tranmere but any sports I like. The past couple of days I have been glued to Sky Sports watching the Ryder Cup Golf. It has been really exciting and Europe are doing really well and I have enjoyed booing every time USA plays at half-decent shot – which hasn’t been very often. Anyway, back to the Tranmere games during the past week.
Some of you may have been wondering where the hell we have been after we disappeared so quickly and without much notice last weekend. As many of you would have been aware, before we vanished we had been working on restoring all our archive and classic posts – a big job in itself as we have 3,791 posts with over 70,000 comments stretching back to 2006. The frustrating part was how long the whole process was taking. Edward and I were getting through about a dozen posts a day – on a good day – checking them, replacing missing media and solving layout problems. This meant it was going to take over a year to complete. We were also being slowed down by having to write new posts and moderate comments, etc. We needed a cunning plan!
Tranmere felt the rebound from Newport’s hammering last week with a hard-fought defeat at Prenton Park. Fraser Franks’ fifth-minute goal was enough for the Exiles to register a third successive away league win. It was also Franks who ensured Newport held on to the win as he got his body in the way of James Norwood’s thunderous effort in injury time. Newport remain third in League Two but open up a three-point gap to fourth; Tranmere drop a place to 14th.
Chas Hodges – one half of our all-time favourite sing-a-long group, Chas & Dave – has died at the age of 74. The duo’s Twitter account said he recently received treatment for oesophageal cancer but died peacefully in his sleep in the early hours of this morning. Known for their Rock ‘n’ Cockney style, the pair enjoyed the height of their fame in the 1970s and 1980s with hits such as Rabbit, The Sideboard Song, Margate, Gertcha, Snooker Loopy and even the theme song to In Sickness And In Health. They also performed four FA Cup final songs with Tottenham Hotspur FC.
Hello, its 12 O’clock and time for some funnies. Unfortunately, Andreaa has skived off on another holiday to Turkey because she enjoyed the last one so much. So it is left to me to cover her backside as always. Last time she went away she gave me a couple of posts for me to post in her absence. No such luck this time. To be fair though, she doesn’t half work some hours for that shop of hers so maybe we can let her off this time. Unfortunately, it means you will have to put up with me for the next couple of weeks.
Today we are going to ask everyone who visits Jammy Toast to just “Talk Shit” for the day. We ask that anyone who visits Jammy Toast leaves a comment on just about any subject they choose. Funny or sad, true or false, real or fake; we don’t give a shit as long as it is entertaining and doesn’t really hurt anyone. We ask you to do this because we are too busy to think of anything else to post – hopefully everyone will like the freedom to whine and bitch. The rules are pretty simple to explain – basically, anything goes!
