Stay strong guys. Tuned into SkyNews this morning to see the carnage in Westminster. Proud to be born a Londoner and to see plenty of jutting chins and stiff upper lips. Not much you can do about misguided nutters I'm afraid except never let them win. With you in spirit and thinking of all those impacted by a senseless act. Mulga Dave

Aynsie and others who played football for the OC's in the early 1960's. For a while we were coached on Wednesday evenings by Jimmy Wilson who played a few games as a professional for Chelsea in the 50's.
Training was in the school gym and usually preceded by a "bridges" run along the embankment. Jim's dad Andy who had a more distinguished football career owned a newsagents at the Putney Bridge Road end of New Kings. Just a few dim memories from my addled antipodean mind for your delectation (or not). I also seem to recall a Fulham and Scotland goal keeper, Ian Black, coaching the school side in the 1950's. Perhaps Aynsie or Dollar Johnson will be able to shed more light? Ooroo, Mulga Dave

Cobbers all, just for the record it's Australia Day here in Oz (26/1), when we commemorate the arrival of the First Fleet in Sydney Cove and the establishment of a penal colony. It's become increasingly controversial and politically fraught of late with some protesting that it insults the indigenous inhabitants and was more an invasion than the beginning of a nation. Regardless, for many it's a day to be a proud Australian, to remember our origins and heritage and enjoy some sun, good food and convivial company. Aussie, Aussie, Aussie; oi, oi, oi ! Mulga Dave

Tiny, Aynsie and other Old Cheyneans, now that the Mighty Blues are back on top of the EPL, the Aussies are finally winning a cricket match or two and it's only eight more sleeps to Christmas here in the antipodes, I thought it about time to return to the airwaves and wish you all the compliments of the season and the very best of fortunes in 2017! Unfortunately for the past couple of months I've been wrestling the black dog and finally with the help of the shrink, a caring and supportive wife and family and flushing the medication down the toilet I'm back on the horse although still at a canter rather than a gallop. Not sure if it was Brexit, Donald's election or the Aussie whitewashes in rugby and cricket that triggered my melt-down but whatever the cause it put me in a bad place for a while. Anyway, onwards and upwards as the bishop said...................................sorry folks but I promise to improve my sense of humour in the New Year. Meantime all the best to you and yours, value what you have and treasure your friends. Ooroo, Mulga Dave

Message for Brian Haynes - Aynsie, good news from the programmers (well maybe not so much 'good' as 'better'). I went to the top and got a positive response. Someone has been delegated to look into our problems immediately and although no promises have been made things are at last moving in the right direction. I'll keep you posted.

Aynsie and Co, sorting through my accumulated debris ready for downsizing (the house that is) I came across a couple of boxes of vinyl 33's. An eclectic collection but lo and behold I came across a pristine, almost mint, copy of a 1973 CBS copy of "Closer to it, Brian Auger's Oblivion Express". Just thought you might like to know as I gather the old Baggy is till going strong in the USA. Still recall his Winifred Attwell renditions at the Friday solo sessions. Cheers, Mulga Dave
