Crazy Bob had Aiden Stone ring him today. Had a chin wag with him and wished him well. Aiden now has an order for a full hit on replacement windows and soffits and facias ........

They’ve not been great at all, and they’ve thoroughly deserved the stick they’ve got this season.

However, given where we’re at and the totally unique situation we’re in if any fan that’s fortunate enough to get a call from a member of the team gives them stick needs their head testing.

bang on Adam, but you know what some on here are like. it's easier to dish abuse out behind a keyboard and a screen. A nice gesture by the players. Would love to have a chinwag with Coughlan though!

I received a phone call from Aidan Stone about 20 minutes ago, he just asked how I was coping during the lockdown and if I was missing the football.

I got a football phone call this morning, completely out of the blue also. This is the transcript:
Caller : Hello, is that Stags Season ticket holder ‘******* *********’.
Me : Yes it is
Caller : It’s Alan Hardy here, former owner of Notts County. Have you had an accident in the last 18 months.......

I suppose he has to find work somewhere.

I was about to get one from Craig Davies but apparently he pulled up on the way across his living room.

DDR was about to call me, but someone entered the room and the draught blew him over.

Had one yesterday . Don't think it was a player . Said it was "Steve from China " . Just wanted to let us know he's ok, although he's laying off the duck spring rolls for a bit .

When you checked the caller ID afterwards did it have a Peterborough dialing code?
