    Just an idle query. Tom Shelby is frequently seen lighting a fresh cigarette. Accepting that whilst filming some scenes have to be reshot; how many cigarettes does he get through in filming an entire series?
  2. Babes and Sucklings!

    "Babes & sucklings". When City were first formed, being a new club, they were nicknamed The Babes. I thought at first you were suggesting The Sucklings was a nickname for some other club.

    Yet that stadium obviously appeals to some. Remember when England was bidding to host the World Cup? MK was placed in the South West group of grounds that would be considered as match venues. At a guess IF England had bribed more, sorry had been selected to host the World Cup, MK being in the South West would have been preferred to AG (perhaps cuz it's closer to London)

    For me Bristol rovers are at a crossraod, one way will either allow us to progress to a sustainable club, or the other to our eventual extinction. I say this because we are, as much as people hate to admit it massively effected by our friends across the river. I talk in terms of future potential generations of fans. At the moment we are tinpot...yes I said it, but we do offset that by only being one league behind, plus if we had plans to build a new stadium, regardless of our league position we would capture the hearts of Bristol’s youth by having the underdog appeal. If we were in the championship but still at the Mem we would match their level thus also attracting future fans. Even if they got promoted to the prem and we stayed in league 1 but still had the prospect of a new state of the art ground, we would still recruit support.

    Nothing on SSN yet.
  6. Priority Poll - Forest or Manchester?

    Turning this thread on it's head. As Man C appear to be heading for the title this season, Man U may decide to play their reserves against WBA on Saturday so their best players are rested for the Cup QF against "lowly Bristol City" and progress to the semis. I wonder which game will be the priority for Man U fans?
  7. Priority Poll - Forest or Manchester?

    +1. If City did beat Man U, they've still not won anything.
  8. Wanna dispose of your woolen red and white City scarves?

    There won't be room to put our red & white scarves in as the bins will be overflowing with blue & white scarves.
  9. Team for Saturday (and Wednesday)

    Family tradition; during WW2 his grandfather served with bomber command as a pilot and rear gunner.
  10. Stoke fans vent anger at players at stoke rail station

    And yet still their fans travel; incurable optimists?
  11. Stoke fans vent anger at players at stoke rail station

    I read how one Italian club lost their local derby 5-0 at home. Fans turned up at the training ground on Monday and beat up their players. Afterwards one fan demanded film of the attack be shown to all new signings so they know how much that derby means to the fans.

    "The proposed extension to its base includes a 500-seat floodlit show pitch, That could be just the thing Rovers need

    Some clubs insist anyone they loan out must play a minimum of games during their loan spell or else a minimum of so many minutes per game so they do get the required experience.

    I didn't realise FFP only applied to the gas. I thought it affected all clubs.
