  1. If you intend to be present at any of these matches then Chorley Town Council are officially telling you that they don't want you in their town. They aren't being prejudiced against Bristol City fans as supporters of all clubs are equally unwanted. Football supporters are keeping people away from using the shops on their High Street on Saturday afternoons (I don't think they've considered it might be the growth of online shopping responsible for the reduce in footfall).

    Will Flint celebrate if he scores.

    Will we celebrate if he scores an own goal?

    Ben Stokes

    Oh the irony! Had Stokes been found guilty 150 years ago he would've been sent to Australia to improve their gene pool.

    Alex Hales.

    Ben Stokes

    Surely this exonerates Stokes. He put the safety of others before himself. OK, once he did so he possibly went a bit OTT. However, on occasions when burglars are killed in the home of someone who has the temerity to fight back (usually with a weapon to hand) the general consensus of opinion is that he deserved it. Furthermore, as was put forward in the case, there's a real possibility that the injuries Stokes was accused of inflicting upon Mr Ali were caused by Hales!

    Team v Plymouth

    For all you know everybody else might know what the team for tonight is as it is all scripted because you are the unaware subject of a global reality TV show. Rather like The Truman Show. So it might not be speculation at all on our part but simply a clever ploy to throw you off the scent by getting you to speculate that we are speculating.

    top flight football followers are not needed any more?

    I've also heard it mooted that in a few years from now fans will actually be paid to watch the game in the stadium. Others will be paid more to create an atmosphere etc. It has even been mooted that clubs will even pay out transfer fees for extra special supporters, for instance those who are especially talented with orchestrating witty chants, or bare the flesh on freezing cold nights. As TV companies will be drawn to their ground more by the atmosphere created by these eccentrics and talented supporters and provides the commentators and camera crews something to focus upon that is entertaining when there is a lull in the action.

    1970's Sitcoms

    I remember now, Andy Kaufmann. I know the film you are referring to. Yes, I think it was called Man On The Moon.

    1970's Sitcoms

    Didn't the guy from Taxi, Judd Hirsch or something like that, play the part of John in the US version? Which is a neat segway into Taxi. Great comedy. Danny Devito, Chris Lloyd, Judd Hirsch, that guy who played Latka, Marilu Jenner and Tony Danza who was actually a boxer in real life.

    Bolton Wanderers v Bristol City Match Day 2

    What a relief. When we signed GON we were told he was brilliant at protecting a scoreline. I can't recall him ever doing that for City. So on he comes for Bolton to protect their lead and fails to do so again. Thank goodness for that. Had it worked I would've been extremely miffed seeing he never achieved that for us.

    Did Brexit shape our new transfer policy?

    Am I correct in thinking that post Brexit, dependent upon what has and hasn't been agreed, the FA could bring in a quota system of say 8 players in any starting line up have to be British, whereas obviously they cannot presently under Euro laws impose such a quota as that would be seen as a restriction upon the rights of non-British Euro citizens to seek employment in a Euro zone nation?

    Man Utd v Leicester, I thought it was free,maybe not.

    Upon first reading I thought you'd written 'Lucky guy to still have a gob'.

    Steve Bruce on what happened with Joe yesterday

    Something I forgot is to inform you that I've signed up for Sky Sports now. Will be installed the day before QPR game. I thought I wouldn't be able to do it as still had 14 months left on my BT contract. But then BT put their prices up so I had 30 days to quit without penalty and did so straight away.

    Slightly wrong. He was a THIRD tier player at the time!
