  2. This is a bit of a long shot as I can't find anything with via Google, but I have a vivid recollection of a remake that Adge did of "Drink Up Thy Zider". It was definitely Adge and the Wurzels (rather than a Wurzels only version) and I am thinking late 60s/early 70s. The chorus of DUTZ had been changed to:- "Play up The City, Play up The City, Bang 'em in there one, two, three" I can't remember any more of the changed lyrics. I am pretty sure that it was just played over the tannoy at Ashton Gate and never released in a commercial sense, but I am not even sure of that. A
  3. This is so true, as i alluded to earlier he has been targetted by most teams we have played lately, he got away with that early one against Luton when the ref gave a free kick, but not all refs will give those. I think there was almost an identical incident in another match that day when the goal was given. Any manager worth his salt will be insisting that all corners/set pieces are right in DB's discomfort zone ie right on or as near as possible to the goal line and just under the crossbar. The common wisdom (apart from us!) at a set piece just outside the box is to keep it away from the k
  4. That was an incredible win for Glos, well done lads.
  5. I agree with all of this, and I have noticed that many opposition teams are aware of his weakness in commanding the area, and have been targetting corners and free kicks to stick the ball just under the bar. This is the precise area where DB should be claiming the ball, but rarely does, resulting in totoal chaos. Before a corner is taken you will always see a shot of him, arms stretched upwards and outwards, the kick gets taken into the 6 yard box, and Bents is nowhere, resulting in total chaos, often with Fam heading off the line or Kalas having to block on the line due to the ensuing panic
  6. Not related to holding the ball up as per original post, but "getting the basics right" reminded me of the Wycombe short corner when we only had one player out by the corner flag and were exposed yet again. I have never coached a team in my life, but surely even for an amateur pub team, that is inexcusable.
  7. I remember when John made a return to the 1st team late in the 81/82 season it was a bit of a shock for the fans, as the mullet he previously sported had been decimated and was looking like a bad lockdown haircut, a sort of Bobby Charlton "combover" (but not as well organised) with random clumps all over his head. By the time the team started the 82/83 season (now in Div. 4) he was totally bald. I remember he joked about it to a local hack saying "you spend 6 years behind Bristol City's defence and see what your hair looks like!"
  8. Yes, when I heard the name I wondered if it was our ex-player. One of 3 signings from Chesterfield(IIRC) from the late 90s that did not have a great time with injuries during their time here (the others being Sean Dyche and Billy Mercer). Some things don't change! I was pretty sure he had the assist for our goal against Stoke at Wembley, thinking the last touch was from Damian Spencer, but according to Wiki it was his goal. He mentioned that he got injured playing for us at 26 and that ended his career, which i must have forgotten about.
  9. Well played Glos, won by 8 wickets.
  10. Players back out in bright sunshine, 29 needed. Brilliant 100 from Van Buuren.
  11. The commentators were right about the weather...typical!
  12. Yes, watching it on the live stream, wishing I was watching from one of the flats. Van Buuren is showing a lot of aggression, lets hope that is the right tactic (seems to have works so far).
  13. Glos needing 101 with 8 wickets in hand. All looking good, Van Buuren and Dent well set. What could possibly go wrong? Well the commentators are convinced that bad light could be an issue!
  14. Very sad news. Loved Nikki, tantrums and all, from the golden age of Big Brother. "Who IS she?", "Where did you find her?!". RIP.
  15. Very sad news. Friday Night Dinner is a comedy classic, loved his portrayal of the eccentric Dad. RIP.
