    An opportunity to relive one of the greatest moments in sporting history.

    A chance to tell the good people of Bristol how much you laughed at the Thatcher years, a dog dying and how we were all there in the away end.


    Any one asked for Spurs v Rovers ? 
    1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 Tottenham.

    Stick to facts, Wuhan is opening itself up from quarantine today.

    Anyway sorry to digress off topic

    It has been reported that four  million people left Wuhan at the start of the year . I’ll just write that again, four million .

    Where did they go ? 

    Did they take the virus with them ? 



  3. The shutdown of sport worldwide has revealed, in particularly , for football,  the precarious nature of the business.

    Will the governing bodies take the opportunity to reset the rules ? 

    Will clubs now realise that paying more for wages than you bring in must stop and now ?

    Will players accept less money in the future    to ensure that their sport survives ? 

    Will TV companies reduce their offers ?

    Will Joe Public stop paying ridiculous percentages of their household budget for Sky and company ? 

    I really hope the answer to all these questions is a resounding ‘ yes ‘ and that some ‘ good ‘ can come out of this crisis.


    This is a wake up call.

  4. I am not missing football at all . 

    Since the start of the new season , sponsored by Corona, Mrs Isewater and I have been training well .

    There are no injuries to report .

    Today we kicked off early at 7.30 am and had breakfast as normal, Four sausages , four tomatoes and two eggs leaving us just a little short at the back . 

    At half time, Mrs Isewater did some essential food shopping away from home .

    She bought in some reserves , which was the goal. Chicken drumsticks gave us some fresh legs . 

    When we restarted we lined up in an attacking formation. All was going well until our Italian wine went down in the box and we had to open a new one. 

    The steaks were high but we hung in there and finished them off in extra time .

    All in all a good performance and we go again tomorrow.

    Couple of remarks from asschat

    Because rest assured, this club is on the edge of oblivion. 

    Even genuine City fans sympathise with us at the moment with the people running our club

    Um I don’t think we do 


    I think they’re mistaking ‘ sympathise with ‘ for ‘ laughing at ‘ .

  6. A local journalist hears a story of a pig that can do Maths .

    He calls the farmer and arranges to come and see the beast.

    On arriving at the farm he is greeted by the proud owner who takes him directly to the sty to show off the pig’s prowess.

    So 2 + 2 ? 

    The pig taps his trotter four times on the ground.

    3 - 1 ?

    The pig taps his trotter twice on the ground .

    The questions continue a little until the journalist has seen enough to be convinced.

    Excitedly he returns to his office with the Scoop . Being the ambitious type he contacts the editor of a big daily newspaper who demands proof before buying the story so a new appointment is made with the farmer to show the pig to the editor from Fleet St . 

    The two journalists arrive at the farm and once again the farmer accompanies the scribes to the sty .

    Before the spectacle starts the men notice that the pig is missing a leg .

    ’ My god , whatever happened to his leg ‘ they demanded.

    ’ Oh , with a pig this intelligent you don’t eat him all at once ‘ replied the farmer .

    She lived  opposite where I used to work, in Eltham SE London, and I would often see her out and about. WIth her striking appearance she certainly couldn't walk around without being instantly recognised.

    And on that bombshell...

  8. The first parachute jump for a group of new recruits .

    Reaching 10,000 feet the sergeant explains the routine .

    On the signal , you jump .

    You count , one thousand and one , one thousand and two , one thousand and three . 

    Then you pull your rip cord .

    Look up to check your chute is open.

    If the chute isn’t open pull your emergency rip cord .

    A nervous lad calls out ‘ what if the reserve chute doesn’t open , Serge ? ‘

    ‘ Well , then you flap your bloody arms and shout Geronimo.‘ 

    The door opens , and one by one the soldiers jump from the plane ;

    ’ one thousand and one ... ‘

    When they’ve all leapt out the sergeant closes the door . 

    He then hears a strange knocking . He can’t figure out where it’s coming from . He hears the knocking again. 

     Perturbed , he reopens the door to see the nervous lad flapping his arms ‘ What was that Indian fella’s name , Sarge ? ‘ 

  9. Firstly the Beatles themselves were like a breath of fresh air in society when they arrived on the scene. 

    They were humourous and irreverent. They expressed the hope of a new generation and made young people believe that they were the future.

    Their music has always been around since my earliest memories and it is only really since I have been involved in playing music that I realise just how good the Beatles were. 

    A lot of their output seems simple  but it is in fact , subtle and unbelievably clever .

    As Bigtone wrote there were some strange songs such as Yellow Submarine , Octupusses Garden , I am the Walrus ... certain written whilst under the influence but who doesn’t dream of a ‘ team of Ivan Sproules ‘ ? 

    That is to say that the melody lives on .

    They wrote some amazingly tender and insightful songs on so many different subjects, She’s leaving Home , Eleanor Rigby,  Yesterday ... and it was , for me , the sheer variety and output of this group of ‘ kids ‘,  because that what they were , over the short period of time that they were together that remains so impressive. 

    It was a moment of undeniable magic ,  not one of them achieved anything like it as solo artists, despite Alan Partridge claiming

    ‘ Wings , the band the Beatles could have been ‘.

    Much derided, but **** off.. there is some brilliant music from this genre in music history.

    Close to the Edge

    Supper's Ready


    That one that Jethro Tull did whose name escapes me

    Procol Harum did one

    Noooooo, the dreaded "concept" album too

    Come on, younger ppl, Muse are even this evil thing arent they?

    This is likely to go nowhere, I know. But there is a war on. And talk of the old days is good.


    Hippy .
