  1. And your professional qualification(s) qualifying you to utter such a 'profound' statement is/are....?
  2. Unfortunately, I believe AD was quite correct, as are you with your perception that referees seem to be 'hiding' behing VAR, rather than taking control of the match, which, after all, is their purpose - the pitch side monitor is available should they wish to check a tight decision, but, much like cricket umpires and front foot no-ball decisions, referees seem to be shirking their responsibility and relying on a third party watching on a screen to make a decision for them. I am pretty sure it was Michael Oliver who refereed the Sheffield United/Aston Villa match where an 'obvious' goal was
  3. He has certainly come a long way since he got caught up in those mercenary activities in Equatorial Guinea and Africa in general. Mind you, those QEH boys with their black gowns and yellow socks were always a bit of a weird bunch .
  4. As the late Zig Ziglar and, perhaps, @Port Said Red, might have said: “If you go looking for a friend, you’re going to find they’re scarce. If you go out to be a friend, you’ll find them everywhere.” Finally, and far be it for me to poke my nose in, but if you treat women in the same way as the character in your avatar, then that might explain your dilemma as (most) women don't really like that sort of thing, especially on a first date.....
  5. It's just because the French have a certain dislike for Thatcher....
  6. Hmmm, and just a little bit closer to home, a certain Louis Carey is the player with the most appearances for City. When the one club man and England international, the late John Atyeo, was playing for City, substitutes were not even allowed....
  7. Indeed, although, interestingly, our generation is frequently considered more racist than that of today....
  8. I checked on WIKI, I know.... He also served as caretaker manager on two separate occasions. With Hughton on board, Tottenham finished in fifth place for two consecutive seasons (2005–06 and 2006–07), while also winning the Football League Cup in 1998–99. On 25 October 2007, Hughton was dismissed as assistant manager along with then manager Jol, following a UEFA Cup home defeat, in the group stages, to Getafe. Perhaps CH was 'only' Assistant Manager to Martin Jol, hence the allocade remaining with Tony Collins.
  9. I saw this article earlier today and thought it might be of interest to some of our more senior readers. https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11095/12054240/tony-collins-the-first-black-manager-in-english-professional-football Whilst I recall him being a scout and assistant, later caretaker, manager for City, I never realised that, if the article is accurate, he was the first black English manager to lead a club to a major UK final and remains the only* black British manager to do so. *I thought that Chris Hughton was manager at Spurs when they got to the league cup final bac
  10. Ironic really, because the late Wilfred Brambell was 'allegedly' an extremely 'dirty old man'.
  11. I shouldn't think so - the curfew only takes effect from midnight on Friday evening.
  12. Any idea why Tom Conway didn’t play?
