  1. We look so static up front. None of our players seem to create space or draw defenders with them. We have been quite positive pushing into the final third but then it all seems to stop. Marriapa and Rowe have been getting into some wide space but lack options in the box. The Bakinson chance was probably the best from wide and he got nowhere near it. Fammy has done well running at them.
  2. Enjoyable game from Chorley. Wayne Rooney's Derby had the kids out but Chorley played well and were worth the win. Best cup run in their clubs history.
  3. The Est 94 makes it seem like 1994 not 1894. Horrible.
  4. 10 years ago Bristol Rugby were languishing in the middle of the Championship. All the best players had been moved on to save money, after the team had failed to bounce back into the Premiership immediately, and the situation as a Bris fan was pretty dreadful. I love and have been a season ticket holder at both Bris and City. The question I would ask fellow reds is if they would be prepared to give up as much as the Rugby fans have had to in order to achieve success? Bris have lost their traditional home (though that was stolen by the Sags long before), had a rediculous name
  5. Sorry for the emoji misunderstanding and thanks for the compliment. All the best. MR.
  6. Cheers for the explanation Fordy. I'm not emoji savvy.
  7. Why the flames on my post? I wasn't having go at Phantom. I absolutely agree with his post. I was just pointing out that some people, and they may be friends of yours, won't call you so it's a reminder to us all that while we are always available to our mates, take a moment to give them a call. I'm sorry if it seems I was negative. I genuinely believe that sometimes it's better to check in rather than wait too long for a call that may not come.
  8. Great post. One thing I'd like to add to this, everyone, it's great to tell people you are always there to lend an ear and talk but please, please make sure if you know anyone who is struggling, has struggled in the past or you have any concerns, pick up the phone and give them a call. I see a lot of people who say "I'm there for you, call me if you need" but a lot of people facing dark times won't do that. They will be too worried they'll be judged, won't want to bother you or are so down they can't even face the effort of picking up the phone. Give your friends a call. Give
  9. My album additions to the list: Album - Public Image Limited The Gift - The Jam Appetite for Destruction - Guns and Roses Change - The Alarm And many many more.
  10. Junior is now 50. That makes me feel old. According to Wiki he's a youth team coach at Preston.
  11. I posted this a few weeks back after the reading game: "As I sad mid-week, we lack that explosive burst upfront that scares defences and creates chances and space. " Several posters disagreed with me at the time but I stand by it even more now. We are so ponderous going forward. We can't find the gaps. It's fine to pass the ball about for a bit around the midfield but we should be looking for a runner. Who pulls opposition defences about and opens space? No movement, no pace, no invention. Not good
  12. Wouldn't be without my accompanying soundtrack to the post Sunday roast washing up, win lose or draw.
  13. It would be absolutely perfect if we went up at the end of this season by winning the Championship play-offs. If Rowe played in that game it would mean he'd have won the play-offs in all 3 divisions. I doubt there's many players who have done that. I will admit I did consider voting for him as player of the season in last seasons Supporters Club awards but I talked myself out of it. I thought the way he came in to the side, played in every position he was asked to, worked hard and went about his football in a very professional way was a credit to him. A great signing.
  14. It's a brave move to lift his family all the way up to the North East. Sunderland have masses of potential.
  15. I've got a vague memory of it getting a bit fruity in Block A of the Dolman. Cider'eds and Pompey fans struggling to work out where to sit so kindly assisting each other with an aerial seat exchange.
