  1. First time I've listened to this, a really enjoyable listen.
  2. I remember one Greg Goodridge performance against Millwall in the cup when he tore them to shreds - it was an outstanding performance that goes forgotten. Andy Cole in the 5-1 against Cardiff in the cup was different class. Even blindfolded you could tell he was destined to become a huge name. And what about this for a random choice: Junior against Liverpool at AG. Bloody hell he gave them absolute hell, from memory he absolutely blinded them with his pace. And the highest scoring game I've seen, the 9-2 against, admitedly, St. Albans, where I think Agostino banged four or five in. Opposition players - ooof Sheringham and Collymore get another vote from me, though I also remember David Kelly repeatedly roasting us! (he sucks a horse's ****!).
  3. apparently genuinely very feisty is there rivalry with Gillingham, dates from a match in the 70s i think. Love a random, weird hatred!
  4. Same here, I've always just thought of them as a local-ish team so the chance of a bigger attendance both home and away - but a rival, no way! I consider Millwall more a rival! I think there's a temptation to invent rivalries when you're deprived of your more traditional derbies, and that's kind of happened over the course of this century. I'm not buying it!
  5. In all seriousness, it's not something I take any joy in hearing. No matter how much you dislike a club (and I even include the gas in this), not only are livelihoods at risk but also something deeper, that being the sacred emotional bond fans have to their clubs (no matter how distasteful that club might be to us). Wouldn't wish for anyone to crash out of existence, and with our history we should know better than most!
  6. If my memory serves me correctly (and there's no guarantee it does), then my mate even had a few pints with you the evening we lost to the gas 4-0 as I'm certain I remember him telling me at school the next day (blimey, it really is a long time!) how he bumped into you at a Carter concert later that night!? I've had a few chats with you but never knew your name and vice versa (I also worked in the coronation tap when I was 18 or so and remember chatting to you a few times in there!).
  7. Haha, we spoke on one thread a few months ago about how we must have stood in the open end right next to each other, have just worked out now exactly who you are And yes, we did stand right next to each other (my mate I'd go down with was also into Carter USM )
  8. great player at Forest, I'm pretty sure I wasn't the only one who thought he would be a perfect fit for Liverpool - didn't work out like that and his career seemed to progressively sink deeper with each year. Hard to fathom why as he was such a tidy player with a great football brain. As a manager I'm sure we're still to see the best of him.
  9. when will people learn that skips and football don't mix well reminds me of the Charlton match
  10. Well put and I would be otherwise in total agreement were it not for the one nasty story that does the rounds (sorry to be vague, but I don't want to get booted off here for repeating it!)
  11. no, the 3-3 I think was Garland's benefit in 92 or 93ish (United had just won the title for the first time in years). That was a belting night! Great atmosphere for a friendly! BUster's Man U match I have no further details other than what I've gleaned from the net - apparently it was a largely U21 team they faced with Wes Brown the name that stands out. I have no recollection of this game at all and would love to know further details!!
  12. I stand completely corrected - I had totally no idea, but just googled and it appears you're spot on. More so, it appears he had a couple of games (one held at Clevedon Town, and another at AG where apparently we played a Man Utd select XI. I have no memory of either game whatsoever! Nonetheless, no idea what his personal situation is (I'm imaging he's not the sort to spunk his money on birds, booze and gambling!), but I think a servant like that working so diligently and passionately behind the scenes is more deserving of a benefit than a former player given the rewards are likely to be have been far more modest. Then again, I don't want to deflect from the actual point of this thread which is to wish him well and a speedy recovery!
  13. I think if some of the stories are to be believed then you wouldn't question the statement.
  14. when I first started going down it felt like the club was built on three pillars beginning with B: Buster, Beryl and (Super) Bob! Get well Buster, a real legend. Saw there was a thread on here not long back campaigning to give Scott Murray a testimonial, but I honestly think (and whilst not knocking Scotty's own immense contribution to the club), that there are other great servants to Bristol City who would probably benefit more from such a gesture: Buster is an ideal example!
  15. I've no idea if this has been posted before, but just come across an article detailing how Mourinho, Moyes and Beattie have also been helping - Mourinho I'm gobsmacked by: there was me presuming he's some heartless, bitter grouch. Jeez, when people prove you totally and utterly wrong, eh: https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/52405305
