  1. He's a friend of a friend. Or at least is a friend of my friend's ex-boyfriend. She and I bumped into Steve James (as he's still known in Bournemouth) with D Albarn once, while out walking in London, about 1993. "Steve" was chatty and pleasant, but Damon just stood there looking bored and picking his nose. Anyway, back on topic. About a month ago I sat near Kasey Palmer at Yo Sushi! in Cabot Circus. I was too shy to say anything though...
  2. As long as he doesn't wear a suit, he'll be OK
  3. Always an outdated concept. I haven't booked through a high street travel agent since the mid-90s. Poor management and the B word didn't help however. One interesting fact I read today in the BBC coverage of this crash is that the 800,000sq ft of retail space that this now might empty is added to 20 million sq ft that has emptied since 2018. Our high streets are dying as fast as they did during the last recession. Not so sure they'll come back this time...
  4. AJP Taylor is history, Major. * Must resist obscure references in future*
  5. A great result for the 10 - and every fan who travels to away games. Thanks for sticking at it guys.
  6. And also that sometimes faces don't fit at a club and players might have a non-footballing problem that impairs their performance here. We've certainly seen a few of those here over the years.
  7. We will need to get some coaching at the Old Vic if we go up.
  8. Careful Evil Twin. Sensible posts like that will lose you your status as the board's favourite WUM/Troll.
  9. Whether it was a yellow or red it was definitely a foul and Niclas was definitely tripped. One thing he didn't do was roll around clutching his head when he went down like some Swansea players did at any encouragement. You can always tell the clubs that've been in the PL recently by this sort of theatrics.
  10. I loved the way that interception and tackle got the entire City crowd clapping and singing. Not often a bit of defensive play does that!
  11. Falls into the serious foul category AFAIC. Bidwell was completely out-of-control as he slid in at speed and Eliasson could've been badly injured had it fully connected. Perhaps Cooper should be happy that Ayew and Byers didn't receive caution for simulation after both tried to feign head injuries to make innocuous fouls seem more serious.
  12. The thing the old East End had in common with the Atyeo was a lower roof than the rest of the ground. I suppose it's only if and when the Atyeo is replaced will we be able to resolve the acoustic debate. And, of course, it's relative: From mid-Dolman, you hear Dolman A much louder than S82 but that doesn't mean they are louder overall. Generally speaking, whoever we play, the away supporters sing more - and that's simply because they are away supporters. City regularly out-sing home supports when we're on the road. I don't think it's a case of Bristolians being naturally quiet. (We certainly aren't in my family! ) Swansea supporters, just like their team, seemed to wear themselves out by the end of the game. The silence of the lambs.
  13. I think we've had this debate extensively and while some dispute it, my answer would be when the "singing section" had the corner of the Atyeo they sounded so much louder than they do in S82. High semi-open roofs lose crowd noise.
  14. We got louder as the game went on and Swansea got quieter. A goal would've really ignited the touchpaper. The away fans, travelling in numbers, on the back of a successful run and sitting in a stand that amplifies rather than deadens noise, were predictably loud at first.
  15. We all had similar age-related worries over Wilbs - and that didn't work out too shabbily, in a more free running role! A good, experienced professional will make up for lack of pace when they move into their 30s, with guile and positioning. AW was spot on yesterday. Barely put a foot wrong. He was, as @bcfc01 says, calm and composed throughout.
