  4. One thing Rovers used to have at Eastville, that we’ve never had, is flower beds behind the goals. I often think, when I go to City’s modern stadium, that the one thing missing is flower beds. I think SL missed a golden opportunity, regarding flowers, when the ground was redeveloped. We could have had John Otway instead of the Wurzels and a new song - “Beware of the flowers cos I’m sure they’re gonna get you, yeah”

  9. “I’ve been through two divorces and the Thatcher years Geoff....but this is the worst..” Who will ever forget that call to Twentyman after Sir, Lord, Legend Colin Daniel spanked home the last nail in their league coffin with a gas badge upon his chest?!

  10. That sort of thing happens a lot as you get older mate. I can rattle of stuff about games in the 60s and 70s but can’t remember where I parked the car....

  16. No a cat in hells chance, imagine the uproar another club being relegated because another team at another game conceding the match to a relegation rival, also imagine Mansfield would of been in deep trouble with the FA, I believe there are strict rules regarding timing etc of the last match of the season!

  17. Photos of him were instantly splashed all over the media celebrating his goal. Many Gasheads thought he was one of theirs and had saved them from relegation. Some are still confused today...

  18. Or “The Vultures” - they were sniffing around Ashton Gate when we were in trouble in ‘82, trying to steal our home....and then when Holloway was gas manager and Pompey were in dire financial straits, The Vultures were right there, sniffing around again trying to get players on the cheap....and they soon had their feet under the table at The Memorial...to the detriment of the rugby club....and one of the deluded idiots even said to me recently that he was “livid that Bristol Sport had stolen Bristol Rugby Club” - stolen them?! From who?! Given them the opportunity to play in a decent stadium more like... Talking of stealing, I quite like the fact they stole our insulting name for them and have managed to make it their nickname....because when people around the country ask me why they are called the gas and I tell them the whole story, they think it’s hilarious and the word ‘tinpot’ has been widely used by those widespread folks to describe them for stealing an insult....yet the gas think everyone around the world loves them and hates us?! It’s soooooo hilarious! They just don’t get it! PS....and don’t forget the t-shirts they were selling: “It’s saturday, it’s five to three, I smell gas...” - you can’t make up comedy quite like that!!

  19. I agree about it being what you've done for your club. My reference was to his time spent in the lower leagues, with less media attention, so less chance of him being known. As for legends, while with that pile of shyte, he managed to be a part of a team that won two promotions, was also part of a team that was relegated and, spent four years staying in the same division. So, he's in credit to being one part of a promotion team, hardly the stuff of legends. Then you compare him to Terry Cooper, who played for us in the first division of the English league, managed us in the fourth tier while gaining promotion and, managed in the third tier and, took us to our first ever Wembley final, winning our first trophy. At the time, a marvelous achievement, given the restrictions placed on his management, = Legend.
