Whatever you do, don't ask an overenthusiastic newbie for an interview (I redirect you to the 20 minutes of me talking nonstop about nonsense 4 years ago for the 7th Annoversary) :shock: :lol:

/off-topic reminiscing ;) The verb to reminisce is a back-formation from reminiscence. A particularly odd-looking word.

"Back formation"?

Don't you just love it, guys, when sophisticated European women are prepared to discuss football? :D

Seriously, if you can get past what passed for late 1970s music video making, Australian group Little River Band's Reminiscing is actually quite a nice song.

I like the eleven-words idea! Simple and fun!

But I can see that might make a short podcast if that's all there is :hmm:

Maybe start with a lot of the 11-words bits, then in the middle do the news items (stats for the year, new developments like the telephone project, introduce the 2 new admins, etc), and then go back to another bunch of 11-word bits to finish it up.

(Now to get busy coming up with some idea for my brilliant 11-word contribution.....)

Don't you just love it, gals, when football borrows expressions from lexicography? I didn't think most footballers could read...

I already have my eleven words. Woe betide anyone who uses any of mine! :twisted:

But before we get onto this podcast... (I say cheekily butting in to advertise)

Whatever is decided it looks as though folks (at least a few) are interested in the 11th Anniversary. Is there a time line on when the podcast needs to be done, or whatever the result might be?

Well, we have a modicum of buy-in for this concept. I think, however, a somewhat wider interest might be advisable for it to proceed. I'll think about it for another fortnight and make a go/no-go decision then.

Thanks to all responders,

Don't be too discouraged by the lack of actual replies. A lot of people have read the thread, and when you come to ask for contributions, you may be pleasantly surprised at the response.
