    Judging by the picture in that article, it looks as though said squirrell has taken refuge in his trousers.

    I got the feeling when it was mentioned on the tv today that the squirrell didn't make it.

    Had there been another then this may have been the order of the day -


    Sautéed squirrel, chanterelle mushrooms and autumn vegetables
    in season


    Try this cheap, ethical - and delicious - autumnal recipe for squirrel with chanterelle mushrooms.
    Ingredients

    2 squirrels, skinned and gutted, chopped into quarters
    1 tbsp flour
    200ml/7fl oz red wine, preferably claret
    2 tbsp unsalted butter
    1 onion, finely chopped
    1 garlic clove, finely chopped
    2 tbsp chopped pancetta
    1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme leaves
    ½ bay leaf, finely chopped
    1 tsp lemon zest
    sea salt
    pinch cayenne pepper

    For the mushrooms
    50g/2oz unsalted butter
    1 shallot, finely chopped
    1 garlic clove, finely chopped
    100g/3½oz chanterelle mushrooms
    salt and freshly ground black pepper
    2 tbsp chopped fresh flatleaf parsley, plus extra to serve

    For the autumnal vegetables

    300ml/10fl oz chicken stock
    1 butternut squash, peeled, seeds removed, sliced thinly
    1 celeriac, peeled, sliced thinly
    2 turnips, peeled, sliced thinly
    1 tbsp clear honey
    2 beetroot, cooked, peeled, sliced thinly
    3 onions, sliced thinly
    2 tbsp olive oil
    1 fresh bay leaf
    sprig fresh thyme
    salt and freshly ground black pepper
    50g/2oz pine nuts, toasted, to serve

    Preparation method

    Dredge the squirrel pieces in the flour and set aside.
    Warm the claret in a saucepan.
    Heat the butter in a frying pan over a medium heat and fry the onion and garlic for 2-3 minutes, or until softened. Add the pancetta and squirrel pieces and fry for 4-5 minutes, turning regularly, until golden-brown all over.
    Add the warmed claret, thyme, bay leaf and lemon zest to the saucepan containing the squirrel and simmer for 5-10 minutes, or until the squirrel is cooked through. Season, to taste, with sea salt and a pinch of cayenne pepper.
    Meanwhile, for the mushrooms, heat the butter in a frying pan over a medium heat and fry the shallot, garlic and mushrooms for 4-5 minutes, or until golden-brown. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and stir in the parsley.
    For the autumnal vegetables, preheat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas 7.
    Bring the chicken stock to the boil in a saucepan then turn off the heat. Add the butternut squash, celeriac and turnip. Heat for five minutes, or until slightly softened. Remove the vegetables from the stock using a slotted spoon and set aside.
    Add the honey to the stock, return the mixture to the boil and continue to boil until the volume of liquid has reduced in volume and resembles syrup.
    Arrange the butternut squash, celeriac, turnip, beetroot and onion on a large baking tray. Drizzle with the olive oil and pour over the reduced stock mixture. Add the bay leaf and thyme and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
    Bake the vegetables in the oven for 18-20 minutes, or until tender.
    To serve, arrange the vegetable slices on the serving plates. Top with the squirrel pieces and spoon over the mushrooms. Sprinkle with the flatleaf parsley and toasted pine nuts.

    Default Why has LTLF Forum got it in for Scunthorpe boss Alan Knill?

    The world demands to know the whereabouts of LTLF mods when the below incident occured?

    I blame Flaggers.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    I was hiding up a tree, lobbing squirrels at passing cyclists.

    By "relegation battle", do you mean 7th, 12th or 14th?

    Scunny's latest run of form.....

    http://uk.soccerway.com/teams/englan...rpe-united-fc/

    Poor bloke's lost 5 on the spin in L1, will be fearing for his job, and has now killed a squirrel

    Still, interesting that someone so out of form can still get his team to put 5 past Derby and knock them out the cup.

    LOL. That would be the Flaggers Elite Trained Kamakazi Flying Squirrel Squad. Not to be trifled with.

    Their run will end today. We have not won there since 1959 and fail to win there even when we play half decent. First defeat of the season on the way!

    Edit - seems I was a bit harsh there. 9 men and still got a point. Not a good few weeks for Scunny's manager!
