  1. The death of Phil Spector raises some contradictions in the way some of us who appreciated his career as an innovative producer viewed him bearing in mind how his life panned out in the latter years. I noticed that the BBC apologised for the way that his death was intitially announced on their website, and changed the headline from "Talented but flawed record producer dies" to something like "Pop producer jailed for murder dies at 81". A spokesman said that the original headline did not reflect the BBC's "very high jouralistic standards". You could argue the toss about this, but both headli
  2. "That was the beauty of Bristol City – they stick by people. And lots of the people who I got to know when I was playing there have stayed for a long time – they were still there when I got the opportunity to go back." The above may explain why the club is loved by many long-term employees, but, as a double-edged sword, may be a cause for the inevitable under-achievment over a number of years.
  3. Looks like it..bit of an odd one this, brilliant and influential producer not such a nice bloke. Jailed music producer Phil Spector dies at 81 - BBC News
  4. I had forgotten all about that, I remember a mate bringing a copy into the pub after the game (not sure why but I never managed to get to the Baseball Ground). IIRC correctly Oxford had a newspaper type programme, I bought one at the Manor Ground in our promotion season. They were not very "user-friendly", although I don't think that descriptive phrase had been invented in 1976!
  5. I remember seeing him playing for Bury against City at AG in the 2nd Division in early 1966, it was just before he left for Manchester City. I remember it distinctly as the crowd were buzzing about the chance to see Colin Bell, and the fact that he was almost certain to sign for Man City. As a footnote City won 2-1 (had to look that fact up as I remember seeing Colin Bell more than the match itself!). He was a great player for Man City and England, full of energy. RIP.
  6. There are 15 so-called adults in that photo (at least Father Christmas is wearing a face covering). I cannot see how any of them thought it was a good idea to gather in that house and then, as stated above, shop themselves with the photo. Surely someone must have thought at one point "this is not right". Actually, it is probably good that they put the photo on social media, as they will deserve all the ridicule that they get. I haven't bothered to look yet, but I am sure there will be a "caption" competition doing the rounds. I won't offer mine as it won't get by the swear filter!
  7. A couple of San Miguels, many glasses of Argentinian Malbec and/or Chilean Merlot, crack open a couple of bottles Prosecco to see in 2021. An Indian takeaway, or rather home delivery, arriving around 10.30. Happy New Year!
  8. What is worrying me is that some of the Johnson post bad match interview cliches are creeping in. "We go again" was used at least twice, making excuses and then claiming there are "no excuses", and as said above stating that we were the better team, when we clearly were not!
  9. Bentley rarely comes to claim a cross, if he does he just flaps at it and hopes the ref will give a free kick. He never seems to claim a corner or have any domination of the six yard box, which means the defence get nervous knowing they will have to atone for his lack of quality in commanding the box and handling (not faulting his shot-stopping, tonight's second goal excepted). I would be interested to see what has stats are for cleanly catching crosses when challenged.
  10. The way to win a football match is to score more goals than your opponents in whatever way possible. That is exactly what we did yesterday, scoring 2 well constructed goals which were both rounded off by ruthless finishing. How is that lucky? The only outrageous piece of good luck in that match was the wicked deflection that Wycombe had for their goal, other than that they did not trouble us. Looking on their forum, their seems to be a lot of disquiet about the fact that they have not scored from a cross this season (unbelievable as that may seem!). Armed with that knowledge, there
  11. I remember watching that 310 on the box (black and white of course!), also had the memory of when he was whacked on the head by a bouncer from South Africa's Peter Pollock. I did not remember (it being many years ago) until I just looked on Wikipedia, that the incident was only a week after the 310 not out. RIP.
  12. Rosalind Knight, aged 87. "Horrible Grandma" in Friday Night Dinner. I also remember her as Mrs Creswell, the "sinister" landlady of the Villa Bella Hotel that Del-Boy, Rodney and Uncle Albert stayed in on the "Jolly Boys Outing" Rosalind Knight: Friday Night Dinner and Carry On actress dies aged 87 - BBC News
  13. I don't normally renew until around July so I am not a current STH, but, given the chance, I would definitely go. I am a Bristol resident so no issues with the Tier system, but I was assuming my chances as a non STH would be nil, but I am wondering , judging by some people's (quite understandable) apprehension, and obviously the large number of STHs in South Glos (and no doubt other Tier 3 areas such as London) whether the take up will be that high initially. Realistically not holding my breath though (will do that in the stadium!) These days I go on my own as a Billy No-Mates, don't
