  1. Interesting Videos

    Hmmm, interesting enough. But is it actually permitted to record and put this stuff into the public domain? Security and all that...
  2. RIP thread 2017 (Merged)

    Neither did Noel according to his interview tonight. Described him as his TV chum - one of but a few to that end.

    Cheggers was also prone to chugging the demon drink too as was widely reported and that can't have helped in the end. Shame, as another small part of many people's childhood has gone the way of all flesh.
  4. NFL 2017 Season

    The Eagles are in better position as they have already claimed the divisional title and have the Giants, Raiders and Cowboys left to complete their regular season. Wentz's ACL injury was not so bad as he was able to walk off the field but it's not certain yet if it will keep him out for a long time. If the Eagles do have to turn to Nick Foles then it will be interesting to see how that works out.
  5. NFL 2017 Season

    Some great football tonight: big teams slugging it out, big plays, big hits, fields so snowy you can't see the lines, tempers fraying and ejections. I love the NFL in December - you can taste the sanguine flavour of the playoffs.
  6. The advice is always the same: DON'T EAT IT!
  7. New Arena

    Used to work in one of those smaller units back in the day (early 90s) and it was a brand new build. The larger and much older building was Avoncolour, a photo lab when you had to have film processing. Think there are lots of little businesses there now. Not sure who owns it or how much it would cost to get the deeds for that lot, nor how useful the place would be in the grand scheme.
  8. How NOT to watch City beat Sheffield Utd

    There are various ways to define a true fanatic. You, Sir, are a particularly good example and I commend you to the house. When no woman can break or fill your heart like football, no ale can leave you so ecstatic or so low, no injury hurt like the pains of football nor the gush of pride then you will have become a true fanatic. Welcome.

    When MoTD id finished.
  10. BALLS!

    Best to you Bristolmoose. Let's not forget that no less a man than Sir Bobby Moore was the victim of this problem. Indeed, at one stage he would show off in the changing rooms his double-sized plum. If he could be so open about the disease then anyone should.
  11. Well done ladies!

    Currently third from bottom and above Yeovil and Everton; level with Birmingham on points but with worse GD. I think the gaffer had already intoned that WSL1 divides in two groups: the rich teams at the top (like the Premiership) and the rest below them. Important games coming up might have a real bearing on the season - Birmingham (A) 10 Dec; Everton (H) 6 Jan. Need to make a statement in these games going into the New Year. On top of that, the WSL is going to impose some new constraints for the next season: every team will have to reapply for their licence and increase the level of commitment to women's football to name a couple of items. City are in good position to fulfil those requirements, although teams like Yeovil are not. The 2018-19 season could look rather different.
  12. Well done ladies!

    Better performance from the Vixens I hear, although in fairness the run for the cup was badly damaged in the earlier games (especially the Spurs match). However, if the from book is kept then Chelsea will dent Spurs' hopes and allow City through into the knock-out stage. One thing that did cross my mind was how many would attend. Given that some will have been at the Gate at the same time it is notable that over 200 were there. Granted, when the fixture was announced it was not known that the men's game would be delayed for Sky, but there is a little disappointment that both teams play on the same day.
  13. Hengrove Athletic - a warm invitation!

    A good move by the clubs and the League authorities! As a local to both clubs I have been known to attend the odd fixture, as well as the Groundhopper Days. So I may well be looking to get both games in - oh, and the City!
  14. NFL 2017 Season

    Rarely fails to make me laugh when these highly trained and intensively coached sports professionals are shown to be little more than bar room brawlers and street urchins when the play stops and the fists start. Although the Bengals' WR receiver A.J. Green had a fairly more elegant choke and take-down on Jags' CB Jalen Ramsey recently...
  15. The problem with England: insight from former players

    Despite the antics of Leicester, I suspect the bookies will be offering longer odds for an English World Cup win than for City to take the EPL title at the present time...
