  1. He's taken his time to grow up into adult football. That is a fact and not meant in anyway as a derogatory comment. Not everyone can be a regular first teamer as someone like Gerry Gow. His performances for Lincoln and Wales show he is now ready to compete for a first team place. January would be good but we can wait until August.
  2. Same as me. Dad was watching City in the Wedlock era when he visited relatives in Bemmy. His family came from Claverham originally. City totally but when it comes to international football and rugby, there is only one country for me.
  3. Poor game. England don't seem the slightest bit interested. Ming's international quality?
  4. And Kiefer Moore is giving a good imitation of a carthorse!
  5. Looks comfortable in the Welsh midfield. IMO, better than Ampadu his midfield partner, who is well rated.
  6. John Atyeo for England and Dermot Curtis for Republic of Ireland in two World Cup Qualifying matches in 1957-58 season. Atyeo scored two goals and Curtis one in the 5-1 England win at Wembley. In the second leg, Atyeo's equaliser sent England to finals in Sweden. PS. Just saw other reply above.
  7. @Montpelierblue He might not be but I could be. With a Welsh father from Tonypandy who took me to Ninian in 1950 for a derby against Swansea TOWN. Also took me to the Arms Park. Hence why I support Wales rugby. And at least three games a season for the next five or six years. I could name the team that played when you were in the First Division then. Saw the top sides like Wolves, Pompey who won First Div in 1949 & 1950, Tottenham and Blackpool with Stan Matthews. Dad and I always wanted Bristol City to win against you, and for me it's a very close second to beating the other lot in north Bristol.
  8. It's impossible to do a best England players team, simply because most will never have heard of or seen those from the distant past. I did, from end of Second War, so will suggest. Billy Wright, Tom Finney, Geoff Hurst, Duncan Edwards, Sir Stanley Matthews, Jackie Milburn, Gordon Banks, Bobby Moore. I could go on but don't have the time. All of the above would be permanent selections in any modern International side.
  9. Chronic Depression is a silent assassin. It is difficult to detect it in others, even those so close to you like a wife, husband or child. I'm not talking about being down for a few days. We all go up and down in our lives but those with severe depression are similar to drinkers - they know how to cover it so nobody realises there is a problem. Even counselling and talking about to roots of the depression are not enough to deter or save some from ending their own life. I know, as I was married to one such person for twenty nine years. Only in the last ten years did I understand and even then I was helpless to stop the inevitable end. I'm happy with a new partner now for nearly twenty years but still feel a deep sadness for a life so shortened by this horrible illness. Talking about it will help some, so do not be afraid to confide in others.
  10. @Davefevs much as i'd like to think you are correct, where is the evidence of this? Too many draws at home, against sides that we should be beating, for us to be considered as genuine promotion candidates.
  11. Colin Walks. I thought his name is Colin manual manipulator. In his own mind.
  12. Free transfer. You beat me to him. I'd also add John Shaw, also free from Leeds. And what about Chris Garland coming back from Leicester? And after the 1982 fiasco, Forbes Phillipson-Masters, Glyn Riley, Alan Crawford, Steve Neville. In 1954, Tommy Burden. There are so many that have arrived at City and given us of their best, to mention. But as a final two, how about Big John and Jimmy Rogers, the last pairing to get over SIXTY GOALS in one season.
  13. Thank you so much Olé for the report. I was unable to listen to radio as wife's family turned up. A super three points. Thanks to all at City and the fans who travelled. @Olé
  14. Cardiff City 0 - 1 BRISTOL CITY Exeter Chiefs 17 - 20 BRISTOL BEARS The red wine will taste even better tonight. Well done everyone at both clubs.
  15. Wilder had won promotion twice in his fifteen year management career. Admittedly, all lower leagues but 15 years and 2 promotions. Johnson when he came to us? 2/3 years experience and no promotions.
