  1. If you're not in denial, and in France.... You're in seine!
  2. Apparently my Stoke City mates already know of this rumour. I cheekily suggested that even with one leg, Benik couldn't do any worse for them up front. Back came this response... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BIjhrlWdFa4 Well worth a watch....

    And the only way I can find the audio channel on the main site via laptop is to go into the FAQs and find the audio button there. Anyone else have problems finding it? Also, who decided to make the dog digital on screen graphic) is Robins TV that big in top right hand corner? No wonder it's now free to watch if that is the quality of the video.
  4. Phew! At first I thought you were referring to OTIB!
  5. Purely for selfish reasons I wanted this game postponed so that I could attend the rearranged fixture. The odds of snow, floodlight failure, waterlogged pitch weren't in my favour! However, just like a couple of years ago when Briz were playing rugby in an Anglo Welsh cup match and at half time a hole appeared in the middle of the pitch, I'll go for something similar. The ground is built above old mine shafts. I'll go for something similar and the match will be abandoned at half time!
  6. My SCFC mate who has been to most home and away matches since the 70s has refused to buy his season ticket this year. He's got disillusioned and bored watching them over the past year or so. He's decided to pick and choose his home matches should be have the will power to watch them. Does this mean then that as a result of my mate's thoughts on their current plight that they are so bad we'll win at a canter? Eventually, SCFC will have to win. Their manager gave up that winning feeling at Luton Town to take on the role at the A50/A500. Nathan Jones has had to deal with overpaid, underperforming players who think they know better. Yet, he is honest in press conferences and wants to get the club moving upwards. They can't move downwards until May! I personally don't want him sacked just because it seems to be the norm these days. Stoke deserve s decent team and given time, Nathan will deliver. Their owner is similar to ours and it's a family run club but without basketball and rugby involved. Hopefully the Coates family will do SL and give Nathan Jones more time do that he can turn this great potteries football club justice. I lived in Stoke for eleven years which is the same number as how many City players will be starting at 3pm! It will be a tough game with Taylor Moore showing that he is more than capable of handling any Stoke City attack. I can't see it being a 0-0 though. Whatever the result, enjoy the game and give the lads a shout from me. As the baddy would've said at the end of Scooby Doo, "I'd have been there if it hadn't been for the kid (going to University for first time)!"
  7. Thanks Robin. It's good to see that their quiz actually exists! If only they had checked to see that their quiz worked! I scored 70% and none of my questions were on there!
  8. Has anyone been able to access their quiz? I've tried both the mobile and PC versions but there is nowhere to click onto. Has anyone been able to do the quiz? I was there so I thought it would be good to test my memory. For those that were also there but can't access the quiz either, here are a few other questions... Q1 Name the former City player, who together with his daughter, sat with the City fans? Q2 What was the fitting tribute that was played at half time on their big screens? Q3 During the match, how many times was Delilah sung? Q4 Who was the City player that was subbed in the first half but didn't want to leave the pitch, even though it looked as if he'd lost six pints of blood? Q5 Which City chant did the Stoke City manager take exception to in a post match interview?
  9. But yours isn't the 'Official' match day thread!
  10. I know we are in the year 2019 but until the 1990s, it was the 'thing' to wear your own team shirt to watch England. I do remember wearing an England shirt to all the Euro 96 matches at Wembley apart from the Final when I reverted to a City top!
  11. Well done Phantom and Ronnie for posting. I'm sure there are many on here who will take encouragement from what you have said. Counselling is no longer a stigma. How we used to scoff at the Americans for having therapists. No longer. We can go to a physiotherapist if we have a bad back but can't go to a therapist for instance if we have bad episode(s) from our past still haunting us? Football for me has at times been my lifeline. I felt accepted being part of a tribe. It was my escape. It got me through the week until Saturday. Well done Marvin Sordell for going public. Well done Marcus Trescothick for going public as he's not only a top sportsman who reached the ultimate in playing for England but is also one of us, a City fan. If Marcus and Marvin can get help and then help others by talking about the ex-stigma, and they were players then so can we as fans. Keep going Phantom and Ronnie. You're good eggs and no doubt will help others on OTIB now and in the future.

    Is there such a thing as ugly french?
  13. If you watch the goal, the extra yard BA had on TM meant that had he been level (even with the flick), he would have been tackled.
  14. Brilliant Peg! A superb summary of the past week for Adriano and his place of employment. You've got a great writing style. You ought to seriously think about writing a book. Meanwhile, only eight lines on a thread about today's opposite team. Must be a record!
  15. In the 80s, I once saw Bobby Gould coming out of Rumbelows with a video camera. I had to have a chat with him and asked Bobby about his new tech. "I got it for the team." He replied. "Sounds like you got a good deal."
