RIP Mr Barney Curley.

A place to chat about anything thats not football related. Most of the threads in here are completely pointless which is why people keep coming back and back. As the forum title suggests, feel free to make any post you want on any subject you wish. It also has Adult jokes (so be warned) which is the other reason people keep coming back.

He was a legend I remember one day a horse he trained was running and one bookmaker in our town gave early prices for every race, so I got someone I know to have £10 win and take the early price he came back so pleased he got 14/1 then told me he had £5 each way because it was such a good price, it won at 5/2.👍🤣.
