  1. It's surprising just how many more people you can squeeze in when standing versus seating and yes it was a crush but weren't we all slimmer in those days
  2. Didn't they sell it around 1938 because the directors saw a quick buck for themselves? Nothing changed then
  3. Isn't some of the debt still owed to the old owners?
  4. Has everyone gone to sleep around the world?
  5. I’m of an era when I saw the likes of Norman Hunter and Jo Jordan on their way down from what is now the Premier League. Off the pace (if they ever had it!!) but with intelligence and experience way above and beyond their Championship piers and rivals. Sadly something that we will never see again, as the Premiership “gods” have no need to play out their careers in the lower leagues, just to make a living. So back to the topic, Williams was probably a good punt in today's market, but as you rightly question, should he be a first choice?
  6. So run that by me again? 4 of us club together and get a taxi from our houses to the ground for £10.00 each (£20 there & £20 back) or we walk half a mile in all weather to get a coach for £10.00 plus £1.50 booking fee! Doesn’t make sense? Ah, got you, there aren’t any fellow supporters living near me and of course we could organise the proverbial in a brewery anyway – so Gas Travel makes sense. I see where you are coming from now.
  7. Why would there be any Police costs when you are talking about the best and most obedient fans in the world?
  8. You mean JCH who didn't play today because he got injured on Tuesday because if the dodgy soure face they had to play on as per Cockman Radio Bristol interview?
  9. Was in hospitality a few years ago when JLC was there with a few mates. Asked to give a speech and declared he was City through and through. If you cut him he even bled red - his words not mine, but I did laugh
  10. And where do we sign up for the AG8 statues? Top marks again @Shtanley for another exceptional podcast and one and a half hours of my life well spent
  11. Very sad about Stuart, never heard a bad word about the man, even if he was a blue . He had been suffering from degenerative brain disease for several years and went down hill fast, ended up just a shadow of his former self. Never diagnosed as chronic traumatic encephalopathy (once known as punch drunk syndrome), but surely no coincidence given his occupation, playing style and the footballs of old, as the family of Jeff Astle are only too aware and of which Geoff Twentyman has highlighted, to his credit. The sooner that this condition is officially recognised the better, espe
  12. Is it just me or is the buy it button missing?
  13. So who can rightfully and genuinely claim to have first used and coined the wonderful expression of “mind the gap”. Not a challenge or knock down, but just intrigued to know if we can actually identify and thank who created (OK London underground might have a shout here) when they first used the accurate and amusing analogy between ourselves and the Gas?
  14. In summary So anything regarding development and investing in the future is no more. What a surprise
  15. It's called Can you beat the bookies BBC 3 And it's coming up on I-player
