  1. The "embarrassing" is their assessment, I'm happy to go along with their thoughts on it. They like to label us as "arrogant," but I'm struggling to recall Engerlund heading off to a WC with the fanfare Scotland drummed up in '78. As the bbc documentary will no doubt attest .....
  2. Available on bbc iplayer thingy, once the bitter Jocks have watched it and wept tonight o'er the border. Where's Nev today - has he knocked off early doors? My first World Cup really (a few snippets of '74 remain, but was too young for that), the first I thoroughly absorbed, loved it. It was so exotic, so foreign, so fascinating. A proper crackly line from half a world away, David Coleman, a decent Scotland team messing up, the lively/cheating Argies (always liked them ever since; sorry Bulldogs!), the brilliant Dutch, and that confetti - oh, that reception in the River Plate. And the greatest ball of all time the Adidas '78 Tango. The football wasn't the best but to a kid already smitten with the game, this was mind blowing magic. But I guess the documentary will be mostly about the Jocks embarrassing themselves. Should be worth a look!
  3. You have overcome some challenges in life and been successful, which is a credit to you. Other people also face great challenges, but not the same ones as you. You - or I - have no idea what many of those challenges are like, what it is like to be black or non-majority growing up in this country and then looking for work etc. There is a lot of coverage of these issues, almost unrelenting, and like you, as a white/majority person, I too sometimes get tired of being hammered with this stuff. But I am of the opinion that until we - the white majority - are prepared or ready to see ourselves as we really are, and as we really have been, this will never go away or be any different. It will always follow us. If the biggest pisser in your life today is that everyone else seems to be blaming other people for their problems in life, then you are doing ok. I hope that it is.
  4. A valiant effort. But facts and statistics are never enough to overturn firmly held views and beliefs. Indeed, providing "evidence" can often only entrench these views and beliefs. We see this on here with football, let alone difficult issues like race and discrimination.
  5. So, racism/prejudice/discrimination is all fiction then, only exists in the imagination and minds of people who didn't work hard enough, or gave up too soon, is that what you are saying here?
  6. The eyes, ears, heads and toes, heads and toes, plus shoulders, knees etc?
  7. Looking at that job ad, I reckon I would be of more use to Bristol Sports as Head Coach of their Football Department First X1. Or even playing for it.
  8. Never mind that, 'mish, what about our tea lady? Who/how many blokes does she know? How many class keepers has she brought in? This is what you should be concerning yerself with. Tch!
  9. A bloke in a carpet shop down St. Blazey "knew the tea lady at Bristol Rovers." So there we have it: the tea lady is central to success/failure at every club, and the old bints deserve both barrells and should take a long, hard look at herself in the mirror (once she's cleaned it) when recruitment is shambolic and we go on long, winless runs. Gerry Francis paid him "£10 a week more than I was getting at St. Blazey." Incidentally, Nige said he prefers cricket to football.
  10. Dunder only happens when it's pissing it down....
  11. I feels better about them greedy south Yorkies now, Nev! Incidentally, I pays for me tickets up Wednesday on the never-never, Nev, but never again. Thieving tykes.
  12. How well after the event can refs at world cup show red cards, Nev?
  13. Flint started his first league game at Reading, our sixth game. In the 5 games he was left out we won one, lost one, and drew three, keeping one clean sheet in those 5. Flint returned at Reading, we kept a clean sheet and he scored the winner. In the five games including that one with Flint in the side, it was: W3 D2 L0 and three clean sheets.
  14. My understanding is he's had his head turnt again though. Although that might be by his missus's sister
  15. So who baby-sits Marlon's little lad when Marlon has a night out with his missus in Portishead - Ryan Kent? Louis Diony? Frankie Fielding???? People on here want to start thinking about these sorts of things.
