  1. But only if he had a chinese menu in his hand.
  2. My brewery? I need to know more and hopefully a sample!
  3. "However, you didn't state who the actual player was! You merely referred to him as NE which one person thought it meant N.Eliasson. NE are the first two letters of the word New. City have had a few new players in the past two seasons. You were obviously referring to one of them and it was just bad keyboarding skills on your part for omitting the W. I can confirm, therefore, that you didn't have a senior moment!" That's what a medical examiner would've surely said to prove you're this side of the senior moment line!
  4. I thought Ray was ok for us. Our final game of the season at Watford, saw the ref dish out a red card to any City player who's surname began with an A. We had 3 sent off including Ray. Got him on loan from Leeds? A left winger that we needed. I wanted him to do well as he had the pace. Problem was he never really used it.
  5. I've just finished season 1 of The Man In The High Castle (Amazon Prime). It's about how USA was carved up by the Japanese and Hitler had they won WW2. Superb thriller/drama. I must get out more because when I saw the above photo I thought it was the Nazi flag from the series!
  6. We have a Northern Irish fan club!
  7. And now they look they're here to stay, I don't believe in LJ OR But they don't look they're here to stay Oh I believe in LJ (Take your pick!)
  8. Hi, Until two years ago, to receive a legitimate commentary match we had to pay the annual fee to a company that handled all the EFL teams. The benefit of this was that we could also listen to other matches that didn't involve BCFC. For instance, there have been matches in the past that whoever won would affect City's chance of a promotion play-off. I would have listened to that game. Also, living here in Northern Ireland, there have been times when I wanted to listen to a Rovers match! All of the above were available until City decided to contract-out and provide the Radio Bristol feed themselves. Here are my annoyances. First, we have had to pay the same annual subscription fee but without the bonus of being able to choose other matches. It's City or nothing. Second, twice this season already the audio feed has been unavailable for up to 15 minutes. I missed the only goal as a consequence. The second time, we eventually got the TV commentary feed and not Radio Bristol's excellent service. Both times the broadcast failed, I immediately emailed with a limited response. After the second time, I phoned BCFC the following Monday and spoke to a helpful gentleman, who informed me that there were no technical people available on the match day! What's more I was then given an email to the company now responsible with my concerns. I'm still waiting for a reply three months later. The previous EFL system would give you extra week(s) credit should there be issues like the above. BCFC refuse to do this. My question is that as the current system is neither value for money nor as good as the previous product, can BCFC rejoin the EFL Broadcasting Version next season please? If not, why not? Looking forward to your response. Many thanks.
  9. I think Miah you're getting confused. When someone from Barcelona says 'Meh' they mean meh (a teenager expression which is marginally better than a grunt or a shrug of the shoulders) and not Miah! Enjoy Shrewsbury but don't grin too much!
  10. Don't forget he and his daughter were with us in the away end at Stoke, New Year's Day last year. The Rochdale game had been called off. Alby could have gone anywhere or could have stayed at home. Instead, he drove the 30 odd miles from his home to support the Purple and Limes and was more than happy to chat with supporters. Now that he has his B certificate in coaching, perhaps when he does eventually hang up his boots (having surpassed Sir Stanley Matthews' retirement age) he will return to us?
  11. Thanks for all the replies so far. All are thoughtful including the Major's who gives praise to the coaches. Personally, I flew with Easyjet and then used the tube that day! The thirty minutes of highlights showed how fast paced it was. The last five minutes was typical of that season as we never gave up and had a couple of half chances with Darren Byfield. If you listen to the commentary, they give praise to Lee Trundle. I never really thought he played at his best for us so am not surprised he hasn't been mentioned yet. Not only do I live now in the land that gave us Ivan Sproule but he was involved in a couple of moves that created the half chances. Would he have been faster than Eliasson? Most probably but maybe not as skillful? I'd certainly have him on the bench at least. Adriano Basso will always be a talking point on here. Personally, he gets my vote as does Bradley Orr and Marv.
  12. Flicking through the channels an hour ago and I came across a certain City match, so I decided I had to suffer and watch. This is the first time I've watched any version of that game since I was there etc.. It begs the question, hence the above title. Obviously, I'm not referring to their current age! Who would get into our current team, assuming our head coach had a best starting 11?
