  1. Spoilt for choice but you could do worse than start off at Wapping Wharf where the Wild Beer brewery has a nice bar and there are lots of great eating places in the same area - not sure what time they stop serving food?, best to Google ‘’Wapping Wharf Bristol’ for detailed info. They do have a ‘silent disco’ on an evening which is really funny to watch from the sidelines! From there you could make your way across the bridge into Prince St and onto the endless bars in King St of which I think the Beer Emporium is the best choice of beers. Great atmosphere just down the road by the Old Duke (previously mentioned) where everyone just sits outside enjoying the vibe.
  2. Word on the street here close to Reading is that Mark Hughes is being lined up for the job....
  3. Has he got a brother called Rodney?
  4. Correct, I understand little but I have seen it close up with s family member and it’s scary as to what you can do to help. My main point is the suffering experienced by genuine people is diluted by others who feign the symptoms - and for lots of non professional onlookers it’s hard to believe them at times which makes it worse for the genuine ones. I’ve obviously not made my point clear enough so apologies if it came across uncaring, no mocking or denial intended.
  5. I’m not mocking I’m just saying why does every single worry has to be talked about? People worry about going to a place of work they don’t like but they still go without opening up. How on earth have we all coped so far and what has caused the increase in suicides, talking about it doesn’t seem to have reduced it much, even though every bit helps. It’s all about pressure and showing how much you’ve got - nice motor, all the gadgets and holidays - right now, if not you’re a failure. That’s where society needs to change, get fulfilment from a sense of achievement, be it saving for something nice or paying a bill off. Even helping out others on a voluntary basis can give great sense of pride and shows you’re contributing to making it a better society. Talking about it is just a small part of it.
  6. Good to hear the guy is getting treatment in hospital to help him recover, hope you makes a speedy recovery. As an aside to this issue, will the proposed new Flyers Arena development have an area set aside for air or VIP ambulance use - or will it have to use the pitch like the Leicester City incident?
  7. This seems to be the way the World has evolved. Example 1 - Years ago your granny would die quite often which got you a few days off work and some empathy from others, and was used by skivers on a regular basis. Example 2 - The old bad back routine, non visible injury but extremely painful (I’ve had the real deal so I do know this is true) excellent for weeks off work if you can get your BAFTA level act of injury past your doctor 3 weeks paid leave is guaranteed. Example 3 - Stress, lots of people suddenly realised they were stressed. Much more concerning than just worried this can be on a new level and be used frequently - and your ‘stress’ level increased if someone dares to suggest you’re pulling a fast one. This is the predecessor of proper mental health scam. Example 4 - Mental Health, the real deal and very much on trend this has become so much more common now we’re allowed to talk about our feelings. I’m not convinced talking about minor worries helps if it causes you to stress, worrying is part of human nature and is designed to help you learn and evaluate risks in life. All of the the above are sadly true but will annoy the genuine ones who have had these issues for real. So whilst I apologise to them I do hope they realise it’s the scammers and cheats who are the ones really discrediting their genuine illnesses and making them look like skivers when they’re not - which makes it very hard for those of us lucky enough not to have these issues very difficult to differentiate between them and the cheats. Just for the record, someone very close in my family has had - and still has to a lower degree, serious mental health issues losing his job (and all the financial implications of that) and going to the point of ending it all before he got the help he needed to stabilise his life. As for NB, as previously suggested I think he’s set himself that 100% fitness level and if at any time - however inconvenient a time it might be, he just feels if he’s not good enough to contribute he has to stand aside for a 100% fit player??
  8. Also reported in the Evil Post (I won’t paste a link to it to save your eyes from hurting too much)
  9. Maybe when the EFL /Prem managers have a get together they should agree to implement in all new contracts that any players assessed as unfit by an independant physio is not allowed to be released for internationals. If they all agreed that strategy and stuck by it if the players don’t like it would have no choice other than to move to play in a new country - and probably end up earning less.
  10. Not quite right, they plan on remaining clueless
  11. I think there’s also something going on at Bitton train station today, that’ll hit them hard.
  12. My daughter came up to me the other day and started drawing on my upper arm with some wax type pencils. I think she was looking for a shoulder to crayon.

    If you have parents who were not born in the country you were born in e.g. Jamaica, you’re of Jamacian descent but you are English and have English nationality. If we want to take our nationality back to our forebearers we’d all be eligible for the Viking national team?
  14. My niece in Dublin had her cat go missing for over 3 weeks and were desperate to find him. One night out on patrol looking for him in an area just half a mile from their home he popped out of a garden and strolled up to them like nothing had happened! He was a bit thin and rough looking but happy enough to go home where a GPS collar awaited him... He’s not gone missing since and the GPS collar allows them to track him and give them peace of mind he’s not to far away at anytime Sounds like he may be locked in a shed or similar so hopefully he’ll get released when the owners return after a few more days - don’t give up hope, as we all know cats are a law until themselves!
  15. All the cats we’ve ever had, including the two we have now, sleep most of the day so if possible it may be best to search late on an evening when they usually go out hunting?
  16. On a boring non football Saturday we could have pushed this thread to a new record number of pages if it had been entitled ‘Hunting for pussy in Ashton’?
  17. Make yourself useful, go look for the cat around Ashton Gat?
  18. Lots of people use the ‘Nextdoor’ app to notify people in the immediate areas of lost pets, seems to be quite successful. Best of luck.
  19. Who was the last ginger player we had in the team?
  20. They’ll be calling into the huge Trago Mills outside Merthyr Tydfil to buy clothes to suit their ‘style’
  21. You could come off at J18 for Bath, along the A46 turn right onto the A420 down Tog Hill for about 6 miles to the Ring Road and follow that all the way around to the back end of South Liberty Lane, park up and nip into the Robins for a quick refreshment.
  22. My mate who has a stutter was telling me about his Nana. By the time he was finished we were all signing Hey Jude
  23. I recall people standing there shouting ‘Dicks out’ - I didn’t hang about too long after I heard that...
  24. Maybe we should sing him a song tomorrow, any idea of one which might be suitable......
