  • Do we have another young striker we could bring on Apr 11th, 2009 at 1: 26 pm its unlukcy that were gonna be missing our two top goal scorers, but after yesterday we showed we can score goals from all parts of our team. keogh may not of been the best player in the team, but he chases down the ball, puts players under pressure. vokes started to look very tired an maybe isnt ready to play a full match. i really hope we dont sign harewood next season, hes not a good enough striker.

  • "In the 18th century airwood came to be used by marqueteurs; for most artificial colours they used holly, which takes vegetable dyes very well, but airwood was employed either in its natural off-white state or stained with iron sulphate to produce a range of silver and silver-grey hues. The reason that airwood was preferred to holly for this colour was that it gave a metallic sheen or lustre, while holly dyed by the same process turned a rather dead grey. The use of airwood in this way meant that by the 19th century it was associated specifically with that colour, and at the same time name gradually changed from airwood to harewood."
