  1. seems to me that although it is the world we live in - if anyone is an active facebook, twitter (what ever that is) or forum poster - you have to know that you are going to get abuse even if you just say a lot of cider is lovely - just come off of those media forums and do what you believe - if you are happy with your own decisions then stuff everyone else but don't be fooled that what is happening at our club is different - it is the future that society has brought upon itself
  2. Wiggins (again)

    Funny thing is - I have had asthma all my life and whatever they give me has not turned me into a super being - cheap skate NHS! (attempted levity - I respect the NHS)
  3. Not read a single post in this thread just amazed it runs to 4 pages about a bloke most people can't stand and is nothing to do with us - bizarre?
  4. The megaphone

    Furious Custard is a beer is it not - Midlands?
  5. More VAR fun

    Robbored - you defeat your own argument - we are talking about football and not cricket - different sport different impact. And still no-one has said how a penalty affirmed by VAR came but from an incorrect throw in award 60 seconds early makes things right? If the throw in was to the wrong team and then the penalty was missed - it evens out - if you allow the penalty when the team should never have had the throw in how is that making it right. Football is not about absolutes - it is football played fast and quick and some decisions will be wrong . If the game is so flawed how did it become the greatest sport in the world without VAR?
  6. More VAR fun

    yep - and think of all the scenarios you can and I still am - I hate VAR - if we got to the Play Off Final because of a dodgy decision I would :laugh: - if we lost a play off final place because of a dodgy decision I would be gutted but I could move on - for me if you want VAR you may as well play FIFA - real football has incidents and some mistakes always has and that is why we have loved it since we were kids - VAR etc is all about money and TV - get rid
  7. Valentines Day

    I haven't mentioned the Ironing Stool I bought after the good lady had been in hospital and on coming home I was told she could not stand for long periods..some of us just have the touch (or we are touched)!
  8. Valentines Day

    when we were really skint living in a ghastly flat in Cranbrook - I bought my wife a frying pan (we needed one) for Valentine's day - that was only 40 years ago and every year I am reminded of that dreadful deed!
  9. Anybody had an omen today?

    Never really dream - forget them as soon as I wake up =- never dreamt (is that a word) of football Last night clear as crystal - Reid scores 1- 0 - not sure what happened then but think we won Sky Bet giving 16 - 1 Reid first goal - got to be done
  10. Senior reds ?

    if this thread is about Senior Reds - have some compassion for us elderly Reds - by the time I got to Warwickshire Red's Post I had forgotten what it started about!
  11. OMG "Tier 2" - perhaps technically correct but I still think we are in the "Second Division" (Premiership/Championship clap trap)
  12. It all kicked off in Bristol (Merged)

    Reading it now as Mrs Markman bought me the book for Xmas - so many memories and plenty more to come - it is entertaining to read about the pride of the CSF . Anyone can condemn the hooliganism and the thought of it. Many replies on here saying it is simply wrong - end of. Of course I understand that but I can also recall the sanctimonious thousands who would wail and criticise and yet as soon as something kicked off in a ground they would all watch and ignore the football and I can remember when the CSF hung a Chelsea flag they had taken over the front of the East End all 3 sides of the ground erupted into a City Chant as our Chelsea guests were being rather boisterous. Not justifying violence it was just the way it was. As I said when this thread first started I was only ever on the periphery as I followed City Home and away very week but I am grateful to the core CSF for saving me and my mate Pelly away against Leicester back in the day - the mentions of the Locarno and the Granary brought back a lot of good music memories as well
  13. went to see Purple in Cardiff on Monday - they were still brilliant
  14. Seen the Leylines a few times now - really good live - will look out for Watchet and Cropredy Events , thanks (Masala - is that not a Billy Bragg line in your sig)?
  15. Recently did Chagstock (Devon) and Kozfest (Devon) - and both had good bands and a really decent atmosphere (and a manageable sized attendance) - any others around the South West (or Midlands/towards London) that people know of and can recommend (I know no bands will be lined up yet but I can keep a look out) Chagstock is really good but it really hinges on the bands - Kozfest is an acquired taste (but I like it)
