  1. Thatch

    IN?????????!!!!!!!!!! That's one hell of a freudian slip.
  2. Burton in the black

    After last week's game I thought this was referring to Burton changing their strip so it would not clash with their twelfth player.
  3. Bristol City top on Holby City tonight.

    On the telly theme, happened to watch on old episode of The Bill this week from way back. One of the villains was called Terry Bush and am I right in thinking that a writer on one the shows ( was it the Bill?) was a City fan and used to use City players' names for his characters?

  6. Craig Shakespeare

    Before he was sacked , he walked into the board room and said "is that dagger I see before me".

    Send in the clowns then?
  9. What happened to the obstruction rule

    How many refs have actually played the game to any reasonable standard? Those of us that have played, can see what players get up to because we've been subject to the same things when playing. I wonder whether referees are so easily duped/conned because they know the rules/laws but don't understand things from a players point of view.
  10. Sunderland not won at home since December,and we are next team they play

    Corrected for complete accuracy.
  11. What happened to the obstruction rule

    A couple of seasons ago the football referees clamped down on this and at the start of the season we started to see penalties being given for attackers being "manhandled" at corners. Lots of debate on MOTD IIRC about this and managers moaning when it affected their team. However, as with so many of this type of "initiative" once the dust has settled after the initial fuss, things appear to have gone back to where they were previously, so corners and free kicks are once again the football equivalent of all in wrestling. On the obstruction issue, the one that makes me mad, is when a defender is "shepherding" the ball out for a goal kick. The ball can be 10 feet away from him, but he appears to be allowed to back in and hand off the attacker to prevent him getting past and anywhere near the ball. In my playing days making no attempt to play the ball and doing this would obstruction but it now constitutes a legitimate defending tactic. It seems to me that any physical contact now constitutes , not only a foul, but also a yellow card. I do wonder what type of challenge is a legitimate tackle, as every element of physical contact seems to be penalised. Perhaps Im just becoming a grumpy old man. One bit of good news - it was good to see Rooney wearing proper boots yesterday i.e. black ones!
  12. Embarrassed by your weak bladder?

    Did someone misinterpret when reporting that LJ said we would be in Europe, when he actually said fans would be in continent in 3 years?
  13. Embarrassed by your weak bladder?

    A cap is no good. To stop you going that many times in a game a stopper or a cork will probably work better.
  14. Johnson tell the players, Leeds ain't a Premier team any more

    The nerves are not because it's Leeds, it's because it's Bristol City.

    Caveat emptor?
