  1. It is 92% accurate according to lie detector test practitioners. It's a good job they aren't connected to their machines when providing this figure. The true figure, supplied by independent sources is far less. Indeed, I heard a lie detector test practitioner state that the accuracy is 92% if a response to one, straightforward question is required, but reduces to about 60% if the question has a couple of clauses or more. I've heard American cops state that they only use the polygraph test as a form of pressure on a suspect to see how they will react before and during the examination, or if they will choose not to take one at all (heightening suspicion). There have been countless times where a suspect has been ruled out by passing a polygraph only to emerge as the likely criminal years later when DNA is used in the reopened case where it wasn't available in the original one, and unfortunately, vice-versa too. Even if it was 92% accurate, for Kyle to go out on a limb accusing a guest of being an out and out lying scumbag when there is a one in ten chance that they're actually telling the truth is careless and uncaring in the extreme.
  2. Much that I hate to say it but I admire Villa's bold tactical innovation. To counter the high press they are simply giving the ball away in their own half under no pressure whatsoever. If other teams copy this style it will make the high press redundant.
  3. I think his name was Palmer. Possibly John Palmer. Played in the 4th Division days. He came on as sub in a game at the Gate. Reminded me, in stature, of Atyeo. Sorry, put it the wrong way. I meant to write Reminded me of the Atyeo statue.
  4. John Shaw played local cricket I'm sure. Recall seeing a pic of him balling in the E Post years ago. There was more shine left on his head than the ball.
  5. I cannot help but feel that Manchester United's popularity in the Far East will take a nosedive now Norwich have been promoted!
  6. That would be nearly 1 million per home match and our ground only holds 27,000.
  7. I cannot believe that you were at Bristol Manor Farm watching City reserves, Ole. I do not recall ever seeing, let alone reading, your in depth analytical report of this away game including player ratings. Sorry and all that, but for this reason I cannot believe you were there.
  8. Dave, shouldn't you be placing the picture of Frankie's replacement on the Transfer Forum?
  9. If LJ does leave and join Fulham or WBA will there be a version of Thatch35 at Craven Cottage/The Hawthornes to boo him before a ball is even kicked under his management?
  10. Thanks Ole for your insightful reports this season. To be fair to yesterday's officials farcically deliberating about whether to allow City's two goals, they reached the ground late and didn't have time to deliberate in the dressing rooms before kick-off whether to allow any City goals/give opponents a dodgy pen/send A City player off or even all three as the refs and linos normally do.
  11. I've just realized that if you put a row of z's on here it automatically defaults to I just don't have the words to express how much I like this post!. Obviously done to nullify the great Robbored.
  12. So if an ex-City player opened an Indian restaurant then you would be interested in what an ex player does after he leaves Ashton Gate, but if he doesn't open an Indian restaurant and instead signs for Barcelona and takes the world by storm then your reaction would be that you don't give a fig?
  13. We have to beat Hull to make the playoffs for the first time since we were beaten by Hull. FLDC's last playoff game wasn't against WBA. Middlesbrough's last playoff game wasn't against Rotherham. Our colours don't clash with Hull City's at all. FLDC's clash with WBA and Middlesbrough's clash with Rotherham. If you add the letters up of the full names of each club, there are fewer letters in our fixture v Hull. Hull has cream coloured phoneboxes and has done for donkeys years. Rotherham usually have a few donkeys in their teams for years and WBA fans are well acquainted with the donkeys at Weston-super-Mare where they have been visiting for years. The omens are on our side...unfortunately, the refs generally aren't.
  14. That was before Derby County amalgamated with Frank Lampard. FLDC much bigger club than D.C..
  15. It is difficult seeing that you are a librarian. I don't want to get banned from all the Bristol and South Glos libraries for flouting their Silence Please rule.
