  1. He was SUPERB. First time I seen him in the flesh today. Although I was impressed by what I've seen on TV coverage at Derby and home to Middlesbrough I did wonder if he might've been a bit overhyped. I can unequivocally say that he hasn't been. He is a brilliant player and has an engine on him that is supersonic. It's like he does the work of 2 players. When Swansea went down to ten men the chap next to me said that we didn't have much time to capitalize on the extra man. I thought to myself that it's 2 extra men now as we've had an extra man all match because we've got Massengo.
  2. Ten days in November, five matches from the Championship on Sky...and not one involving Leeds United!!!
  3. Sorry, have just read this and would've replied earlier. Bob took his Ford Fiesta to a scrapyard in, iirc, St Philip's in the early 1990s. Unfortunately, the crane's electromagnet picked him up instead and he was last seen swinging about 60 feet above the Fruit Market.
  4. Hard luck, Davefevs and thanks for the explanation. It would've sounded better though had you embellished the tale by instead of stating that you went up for an unchallenged header, you instead stated you were in an aerial challenge with Peter Shilton. Then the rumour would've spread that there was a serial football career terminator on the loose and parents all over the West Country would be keeping their offspring from leaping for a ball outdoors until the evil miscreant was apprehended.
  5. I'm guessing Swansea must be in a quandary about all of this, especially without any official confirmation. Afobe could be absent on Saturday and not face them at all. Afobe could be present on Saturday and be his dynamic self against them. Afobe could be present on Saturday but have an ACL injury. He would play in his usual position on the shoulder of the last defender, but this would be because he needs to be carried around the pitch using a fireman's lift.
  6. If this is a load of Bull Crap then it is a further instance of LJ's brilliant use of modern methods to help gain a result. He will go down in history as the first manager in world soccer to use Fake News. This will start a trend and players of all clubs will train behind closed doors during the week and then don faux plaster casts and walk on crutches the rest of the week in public.
  7. They will be bringing in retrospective VAR in 2026 sssshhhhh for gawd's sake.
  8. My Great, Great Grandad made an appointment to see the first female doctor as he was feeling under the weather back in the day. It's Monday week at 3.15.
  9. I'm hoping they'd be in the same qualification group as Scotland and get knocked out by them so they wouldn't be there either, :laugh:.
  10. I say put us in a group with Germany, Spain, Portugal and France then we can knock them out in the qualifiers and then enter the tournament with a chance of winning the thing as the big four won't be there!
  11. Quite agree. I've had 3 cats who've died, one being run over aged 3 in 1974. All of these occasions have been deeply upsetting. However, the cat that went missing in 1991 aged 2 (on the anniversary of the cat's death in 1974), I never seen again. I don't know if he died that day, or died of hunger weeks or months later, or if he found a new home and lived a happy and contented life for years thereafter. I still wonder to this day what happened to him. A week or so later in the Bristol Journal an article appeared stating that some gits were going around Bristol killing cats for their fur which was then sent to Germany, so I even have thoughts that his fate could have been associated with this. One thing that has brought me some solace is that over the years, when I was with my ex, and now, we put food out for the foxes and hedgehogs at night and from time to time a stray cat would alight upon it and eventually befriend us. We reunited a few cats with their owners that way and took on three cats ourselves when we couldn't locate their owners and they had no chips etc. Where I am now, I've taken on a stray cat, Perseus, who kept hanging around the food I put out. So that's four. Having experienced this I like to think that my cat in 1991 fell upon a similar source of food and was taken on by caring souls.
  12. Joe Jordans Teeth stated that a comment was about as funny as cancer. He's correct. Cancer isn't at all funny. If I was to state that something was as funny as the plague, or a tsunami wiping out half a million people I'd be stating, in a round about way, that it wasn't at all funny. I cannot see what your problem is? Jeez, is someone with constipation going to take offence at your moniker on here?
  13. That's the same 'joke' I was told by the 'comedians' who phoned me when I lost my cat back in 1991.
  14. Rather like the Test Match and Steve Smith in particular the second half saw us throwing everything but the kitchen sink at them and them somehow surviving effortlessly intact.
  15. I'm the PA at Mangotsfield and I was tempted, for a laugh, to award the mom to the Blackfield & Langley goalkeeper for keeping Mangotsfield single handedly at bay. Thought that would get up their noses. Tbf he did pull off 3 great saves to deny the Mangos and the Mangos also hit the bar in the first few seconds of the 2nd half. But B & L were a stronger team physically and had a fair few speed merchants at their disposal.
