  1. Yes Ronnie! A Pistols/Thin Lizzy collaboration, originally called the Greedy Bastards IIRC! Loved this and bought the single at the time, in fact I might still have it.
  2. I would take issue with the fabled acoustics of the old East End. Yes it sounded fantastic when you were actually in there, but nowhere near as audible from the rest of the ground. The fact is that the high apex and low roof line kept much of the noise INSIDE the stand. The roof was like a tunnel, meaning that it sounded absolutely deafening to those fans who were in there making the noise. Which was great because it encouraged us and made it easier to sing all the more. But the truth is it sounded rather muted if you were in any of the other stands. What's more, that low roof meant that those in the East End couldn't hear any sound from the rest of the stadium, no matter how loud it was. Summed up by a guy I used to know back in the 90s, a Bournemouth fan who visited Ashton Gate for the first time when away fans only were placed in the East End. Chatted to him after the game and he was of the opinion that the AFCB lot had made a ferocious wall of noise all afternoon and that the home support had been silent. "Why didn't you sing?", he asked me. Well the next day he realised how wrong he was. The highlights were on HTV's The West Match and my mate (who was lucky enough to live in Bristol) watched in confusion as all you could hear was the City fans in the Atyeo singing loudly, with just the occasional Bournemouth chant. Modern stadia (including the remodelled Ashton Gate, I believe) are designed scientifically to project sound out onto the pitch, which means no more tunnel-like roofs. Of course, the occupants of the stands do actually have to generate some sound for this to happen!
  3. See, there's another thing that's wrong with modern football. Apparently we can't hit people with umbrellas any more? Political correctness gone mad I tells ya.
  4. One-nil down, two-one up, we knocked Rovers out the cup. I came incredibly close to getting a kicking in the South Enclosure at Eastville that day, but thankfully A&S finest looked after me in the end
  5. From another planet, to miss-quote John Motson.
  6. We always win when I go to Fulham. The other thing that always seems to happen there is a red smoke bomb regularly lands at my feet following a goal. "We've scored, what shall I do with this smoke bomb?" "Chuck it at that tall bloke again". Thanks lads
  7. All of the above. I would just add to that list Christmas Time (Don't Let The Bells End) by the Darkness, which I heard on the radio today. Oh, and Jona Lewie's Stop The Cavalry. More an anti war song than a Christmas song, that one though. Anyway, it's all bollocks innit.
  8. That Seven Nation Army loop is a really amateur edit job as well. Anyone else noticed the end of the eighth bar is cut a fraction of a beat early? So irritating. No? Just me then
  9. I've lived near the Mem for many years and I can tell you it's got progressively quieter and quieter. These days you'd scarcely know there's a game on. You just know to stay away from the Glos Road and local pubs on a match day, as we're generally a rather pleasant neighbourhood and they tend to be a bit, well, ill-mannered and scruffy to be honest.
  10. Cocu: lager. Johnson: lager, sometimes cider.
  11. When The Listening Bank turns a deaf ear. And The Bank That Likes To Say Yes tells you to "do one" and has you escorted from the premises.
  12. I still managed to buy a full price ticket at 10:37am. Wow, that was stressful. Managed to get two tickets in two separate transactions - double the postage cost - after about half an hour of refreshing the browser repeatedly. Also the seats won't be next to each other - hopefully it will still be possible to stand where you want as normal, despite the reduced allocation. First World problems!
  13. No, as mentioned above, you are not. I would absolutely love to watch the Manics at the Gate, but am not prepared to go and see them opening for the Killers, who just leave me cold. I got soul but I.... no, actually I haven't.
  14. Yeah, saw Adam and the Ants at the Locarno as well. Duran Duran didn't have enough guitars for me.
  15. Ah, yer not. I saw U2 in 1981 at the Locarno when they were still edgy Clash wannabes, before they went to shit. Now that's ancient
