  1. Yes, my mistake, had been out during the evening and hadn't noticed the Glos stuff. Looks like today's T20 at Cheltenham v Glamorgan could be affected by the weather (severe understatement!), shame as this one sold out weeks ago
  2. Never mind that team from Taunton, the official "One Team in Bristol" of County Cricket, the mighty Glos, had a fantastic last over win in their 4 day home game against Leicestershire (albeit at Cheltenham!!)
  3. IIRC correctly Lee Peacock scored for us twice in the 2nd half, did it end up 2-7 or something like that? Also remember we played Steaua Bucharest in 1991, think we were outclassed and lost 0-2, they had won the European Cup a few years before and were still a top European side. There was some sort of sour controversy in that SB were taking the mick a bit as they were receiving the ball, and pretending to tie their laces to show how much time they had on the ball (or something a bit showboaty like that). https://www.bristolcityprogrammes.com/p/bristol-city-v-steaua-bucharest-12-08-1991-programme
  4. Could be some Stoke fans in town!
  5. Sat in our garden in St George area, Indian home delivery ordered via Just Eat, Beer and Wine poured, and now being serenaded by Tom Jones, currently belting out "Delilah" from the County Ground, must be about 4 miles away! Anyone else hearing Sir Tom for free?
  6. Agreed, she totally outplayed her. Serena looked out of sorts, but 95% of that was due to the onslaught of Simona. Not sure how it ended up on the unforced errors stats, but at one point in the 2nd set she had 2 to Serena's 20+.
  7. I remember Stan Bowles playing for Brentford in what was then the 3rd Division in 81/82, when we were on our consecutive relegation "journey". Probably the most famous trio of brilliant players who dropped down from the top flight was when Bobby Moore, George Best and Rodney Marsh all played for Fulham in the 2nd Division (when we were in the 1st!).
  8. I think that (but stand to be corrected) that it is one per innings, so yes one for fielding and one for batting. The weird thing is that if you lose a review ie LBW because it would just have hit the stumps but it remains the Umpire's call you keep that review for future use (if that makes sense!) What I really don't get is that if ball tracking shows that on an lbw the ball would have hit the stumps (even only just) that should surely be given out, whatever decision the Umpire has originally given. The Jason Roy incident today showed that, whatever system is used, their will still seems to be some controversy with the review system used, be it cricket, football or whatever. I am pretty sure the Umpire was not totally convinced he had made the right decision, but (unlike with a run out or stumping or a catch that might have hit the ground) he could not refer it directly to the 3rd Umpire, which seems a nonsense as surely they want to get as many decisions as correct as possible and that one would have been proven wrong in about 15 seconds.
  9. I am pretty sure every single WC game has been streamed live on hesgoal.com, which I guess I was only aware of because of the live football streaming sites threads we always get when City are away. I always find this the best streaming site as you don't have to "register" and having Norton always fends off any dodgy virus things. You also get the Sky commentary (rather than Bulgarian, Swedish or Russian etc that you sometimes get for the footie), all for free. I do pay Virgin Media for all the Sky Sports etc anyway but having said that, in this warm summer it is nice to watch it on the old laptop in the garden. But it does show that you don't have to pay and subscribe for anything and still watch it for free. I realise that this bit of advice is of absolutely no use now to anyone who wanted to watch the WC tournament but couldn't afford it or didn't want to pay for Sky, sorry about that!
  10. Brilliant, was going to miss this as going to a wedding on the Saturday!!
  11. What made me laugh as well as the reviews for this place (never been there, but it is obviously an absolute shithole) was that there were 2 "excellent" reviews! Not sure I'd like to meet those people who gave 5 stars, or was it members of staff on a wind up perhaps?
  12. Agree with that, he had very dodgy political views, no regard for anything PC, a bit of a prat, but bags of charisma. Also seemed to get the sack a lot but kept bouncing back. Found this on his Wiki page: "In October 2012, it was announced by Channel 4 that McCririck would not be included in the team presenting racing from January 2013,[4] which McCririck blamed on ageism,[5] taking Channel 4 to an employment tribunal. On 13 November, the tribunal ruled against McCririck: "The unanimous judgement of the Tribunal is that the Claimant's claim of direct age discrimination fails."[6] It continued, "All the evidence is that Mr McCririck's pantomime persona, as demonstrated on the celebrity television appearances and his persona when appearing on Channel 4 Racing, together with his self-described bigoted and male chauvinist views, were clearly unpalatable to a wider potential audience." The panel was told by witnesses from the television station and IMG (the production company) that he was dropped because he was "offensive" and "disgusting".[7] Oh well, at least we would never get someone like that running the country!!
  13. Gary Duncan of Quicksilver Messenger Service passed away, I can't profess to be an expert on QMS but remember owning the "Shady Grove" album, "Happy Trails" was always referenced as their classic album. I am more acquainted with ex QMS member David Freiberg because of his work with Jefferson Airplane/Jefferson Starship who he still tours with (saw them twice in the last 5 or 6 years), but, going to back to Gary, another of that era and California 60s scene to leave us.. RIP.
  14. Playing the 02 Academy in Bristol in August. Unfortunately (if you don't already have a ticket) the gig has sold out.
