  1. Apparently he was doing one on ones with the keeper this morning and hit the target ten times out of ten. The coaching staff instantly realised that he wasn't his usual self and sent him home as a precaution.
  2. Without wishing to put a dampner on your creditable attempt at humour, by 1904 photography had been around for nearly 70 years and train services for nearly 75 years. It's quite feasible that several players in that photograph had had grandfathers (at a push even great grandfathers)who had been a passenger on a train and/or had their photograph taken at a younger age than their descendants were in that picture.
  3. Strange fact. When Accrington Stanley went out of the League in 1962 they were replaced by Oxford United. When they were promoted back to the Football League in 2006 they replaced relegated back to the non league Oxford United!!!
  4. As we prepared to play Man Utd at Old Trafford in the 76-77 season he said that he wouldn't cross the road to watch Bristol City. I felt affronted. However, these days I would cross the road but that's to avoid watching them. Even if it was the M4. RIP a character.
  5. A thunderstorm cloud with lightning could symbolise an electric performance. Two streaks of lightning hitting someone beneath the cloud could mean a great pair of strikers.
  6. You ******* I spent nearly ten minutes making that game.
  7. Tbf that's one point from 27 more than I can see Holden getting for us at present.
  8. I remember reading his weekly column in Shoot Magazine and he was always complimentary about Bristol City and said what a difficult place it was to go and get a result as the fans were passionate and tight to the pitch. A great keeper as I was not entirely sold on the Peter Shilton is God argument. I recall being down the Open End when City beat Liverpool 2-1 with two Garland goals in 1977 on the Monday before the last game at Coventry on the Thursday and ribbing him about the shot from Dalglish that went through his legs when Scotland beat England at Hampden. RIP Ray Clemence

    I cannot agree more with you. However, we need to take into account the sensitivities of those who are shocked by the fact that she hasn't complained. I feel that she should've realised this and at least looked disgusted and perhaps could've then be seen to be discussing the incident with her agent with a view to appearing in a documentary about the horrors of having been touched on the neck or shoulder by someone else. I often feel that when I was being taught the horrors of the trenches in World War I, that I was being fed a diversionary narrative so that I wouldn't learn about the abso
  10. I actually think our performances in the 1970s at international level are unfairly maligned. For the 1974 World Cup we were pipped in qualifying by Poland who finished 3rd at the Finals having thrown the kitchen sink at them at Wembley in a very very fortunate 1-1 draw for the Poles, and in the 1978 qualifying campaign we lost out in qualification to Italy who finished 4th at the Finals on goal difference having beaten them at Wembley. Only 16 teams went to the Finals back then. Scotland qualified in 78 by topping a group consisting of themselves Wales and Czechoslovakia. England had some worl
  11. Actually I think City played a game in the Isle of Man Cup against the home side. As it was considered an international game of sorts the Isle of Man insisted on having their flag embedded into the pitch. If I recall correctly, the game was played over three legs.
  12. No it was actually followed by a 1-1 draw home to Stoke, nil-nil at Newcastle, 1-0 defeat to Coventry in the League Cup then the 4-1 thumping of Sunderland.
  13. Had dealings with Gordon in the mid 1980s when he was Rovers secretary. What a smashing bloke and I have to say, due to his like and Keith Brookman, I don't harbour the anti-gas sentimentality other City supporters do. That isn't to denigrate those fans it's more a reflection on Mr Bennett and Mr Brookman. Two passionate fans of their club but also very nice and decent people. If you made their acquaintance, you couldn't then hate. RIP Gordon.
  14. Nogbad, you say that there don't seem to be any entries from female posters. This doesn't surprise me at all. Most of the women I have known have all shown a great talent for being very wise AFTER the event.
