Good day to you! Welcome to episode 50 of the Retirement Home – the final episode of the Retirement Home. We finished last week by winning the Champions League and it seems the absolutely perfect way to leave things. This will be a celebration of what has gone on over the past 49 weeks and a look forward to our new save in 2021, which has some similarities.Continue reading
Well good day to you! It may be winter outside but in my heart it’s spring. Technically it’s not yet winter, makes you think doesn’t it? Anyway, it is definitely the winter of these players’ career but nothing can take away the fact they are Premier League champions. Their title defence is about to come to an end but we won’t cry because it’s over. We’ll definitely smile because it happened. We’re also still in the Champions League of course, so let’s hope we aren’t sucked into a relegation battle.Continue reading
Hey there! Do you remember when the Retirement Home won the league? That was two weeks ago. We’re not doing a very good job of defending our title but for another 26 games, we’ll still be champions. Or maybe you’re about to see the greatest of all comebacks…
HELLO! We’ve been drinking for 7 solid days. The Retirement Home are the Premier League champions. Can you believe it? Let’s just remind ourselves before we deal with the reality that all of our centre backs retired after such a feat.
Well hello there. Happy Sunday. Season 15 is about to come to a close but it might be historic. It might be the greatest blog you’ll read. Ever? This week? This month? In the last 10 minutes? We’ll see. But LOOK AT THE TABLE. 13 games to become old champions. Beyond our wildest dreams.
Well good howdy to you all. Here in Retirement country, the old lads are doing themselves proud by sitting 4th. With relegation surely not even on the radar this year we are well placed to build on our high finish of 6th. Still, the cold winter months have been known to cause problems for the elderly and let me remind you, two of my centre backs are over 40.
Good day to you! Welcome back to the FIFTEENTH season of the Retirement Home. Who’d have thought we would get here eh? More to the point, who thought we’d be gearing up for a second consecutive season of European football? Here’s a reminder of how that happened:
Good morning! Welcome to another end of season write-up for the Retirement Home. As the curtain comes down on season 14, we have an unusually high amount of unsettled issues for the old lads to resolve. Firstly, we shouldn’t get relegated or even be in the scrap. So that’s nice. Secondly, we’re still in with a chance of defending the FA Cup. Finally, we are ludicrously still in Europe, the Cup Winners Cup quarter final will see us takes on Nantes and this week, I promise there’ll be no Take That gags.
The team that just keeps on giving. Welcome back to the Retirement Home, where you join us 12 games into season 14 and for once we aren’t clinging on for dear life in the bottom half of the table. I mean, let’s not go crazy, we’re still 11th, but 11th is not 18th and in the words of Take That, we’re still so young and we hope for more.
Well good day to you and welcome to yet another season of the Retirement Home. This will be a season with a difference – not only did we stay in the Premier League with our old lads, we only won the bloody FA Cup. Somebody call Rob Brydon because we’re going on a European cruise.
