  1. When my daughter passed her test a couple of years ago, we got her a Suzuki Swift. Even fairly new versions(5 -6 years old), can be picked up cheaply. Also, our insurance (Admiral), said it was the lowest category of car to insure for new drivers!
  2. I read that as 5 of you getting the Match day Mticket for £9.
  3. The Unigate club was up on the corner of Robertson Road. Became the white swan and now flats I think.
  4. My daughter gave me this.

    Thanks for the replies @BTRFTG and @redysteadygo1. I was looking up just after the war. Some amazing memories and stories we still have on this forum.

    Read through this thread in work and when I got home looked up the OP question to see if I could help. Unfortunately, There is no information on who was called up and where they served. There is an error though in either the book @Dave L has posted, which is Bristol City the first 100 years or Bristol City - a complete record 1894-1987? Oddly they both have the same co-author. In the complete record it says it was Bill Shankly and also Bob Paisley? All the other info is the same, including the Southampton game on Christmas Day 1941, where a car carrying 5 city players broke down in Warminster, so 3 city supporters and 2 Southampton staff had to make the numbers up for us. @BTRFTG The only Leeds player I can find reference to around this time was Jack Hargreaves who was with us in 1946-47. I wonder if any club historians have any more information? Good piece here about Alan Fowler who played for Swindon http://www.swindonweb.com/?m=8&s=116&ss=346&c=5603&t=D-Day+Hero
  7. Just donated to hit your target. Good luck.
  8. October 1971 as an 8 year old against Leyton Orient. We won 5-3, Always believed we were 0-3 down at half time? Galley got a couple that day. My old man was rovers and took me along to a few games, but in a neutral area. No joy or interest. His sister Deb was city mad and with her boyfriend Mick took me down the gate “to watch a proper football team”. Straight into the east end and it was brilliant. Hooked from then on. and followed home and away all through the 70’s. Group gradually got bigger and remember about 15 of us crammed into a blue Bedford van, for most away matches. Led across each other in the back, brilliant. Home matches were a whole day experience. Used to leave home in Kingswood about 10, meet up and head down to New Cheltenham to gather more, then back up to Greasy Erns chippie in Moravian Road, on down to Hanham bus station! Why I didn’t wait in Kingswood, I never understood, it just seemed part of the day, walking about 3 miles to end up metres from where I started
  9. That’s why I am going tomorrow! Got s strange feeling we are going to do it. Unless of course that feeling is wind? Some poor bugger is going to be sat next to me on the coach all the way to Hull
  10. Had to refresh several times and it became available. Think people might have them in their basket, so they go back on sale if the transaction is not complete in a certain amount of time?
  11. There are tickets still available. Just got one for N6. No information on coaches, so will give them a call in the morning. Feel the need to go!
  12. This is not a great time for bands of my youth! https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6750999/The-Cure-drummer-Andy-Anderson-dies-aged-68-cancer-battle.html
  13. Sad news indeed. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-47370626 Contains a link to his Obituary as well.
  14. I am pretty sure it was 1st August for this season.
