  1. If they weren’t playing professionally they’d all be playing the game they love at the clubs most of them played at as juniors...and a few after game scoops with the opposition was always the highlight of the day for most of us.
  2. I would imagine any Downs League team would put double figures past which every women's team are currently ranked No 1 in the world but that really isn't the point...women generally are not good at sports broadcasting because firstly, they think they have a point to prove and secondly, they don't know when to shut up.
  3. They've been giving for so long!
  4. I remember an evening back in the early 70s when we played the Gloucestershire Senior Professional Cup Final at Eastville, in the days when it was a big deal and both teams put out a first team. Our forward line scored the first four leaving Skirton, no 7, the odd one out and they fed him until he got the fifth...happy days and not much has changed.
  5. I often wonder if we should adopt them as our development partners, we could lend them our promising juniors and squad players who can’t make the team sheet even on the bench, they could use last seasons away kit, we could loan them the LWB Transit van for away matches and let them sell off our out of date snacks with their fake Fanta...and as Red Army 75 suggests we could give them a charity game at Ashton Gate during the summer.
  6. Sadly it’s you who’s intolerant and illiberal and sadly out of touch with the realities of modern life, populism, a concept I’m sure you despise, is merely the voice of democracy in the new age of digital communication, watch out for more of it as the masses grasp and exercise its potential.
  7. Probably in one of the tolerant, liberal, non judgemental groups of listeners who find the presenters, callers and content entertaining.
  8. Anywhere to itself or if that’s not allowed Heathrow to London City flying West
  9. He’s an active member of my golf club and played behind my group on Sunday, as is Sammy Nelson.
  10. ...who wouldn’t be? Archers bowling at the end of Oz first innings and start of this is the most intimidating spell(s).I’ve ever seen by an England bowler.
  11. I attended my first game in the mid 60s, as an 11 year old all on my own I caught a bus, the number 19, in Stapleton to every home game for 20 years provided I wasn't playing football, cricket or rugby. Now I live in Sussex and travel to Bristol a couple of times a month to watch City or Bris...the badge is just a badge, my allegiance is much more profound and deep seated than worrying about something so superficial.
  12. I think it's pretty ordinary but who cares and does it really matter?
  13. No, because no one other than the fans of the two teams involved would give a toss but matches at Twickenham will always attract neutrals because it's a great day out. i seem to remember Quins v Bristol as the 16/17 season opener attracted double the combined attendance the two clubs would usually get for a home match.
  14. I'm sure your analysis is spot on, I just didn't remember us being that bad for that long but upon reflection, AD was here for a long time before our great youth team players filtered into the 1st XI...Merrick, Gow, Richie et all.
  15. It's an interesting analysis...thank you, I'm surprised AD isn't higher in Tier 2
