  1. In my previous incarnation as a Head Teacher I once visited schools in New Zealand, all of which had their “ strap line” prominently displayed .... in a moment of ( possibly cider induced) flippancy I came up with “Striving for mediocrity “ as an idea... it kind of works for City too!!! Otherwise could we be “ The Babbers”, “Brunel’s best” or just ( actually true) “ The best in the west”....
  2. Bizarrely was only talking about this game in Turkey the other week- chatting to some chap from “ up north” who said he’d met the player who scored for us first in the 1st division... Paul Cheesley says i & proceeded to bemoan his ill fated career... no, no, this chap wasn’t having it.... until about 5 pints later when he suddenly shouted “ Paul Cheesley”... as if I hadn’t been telling him that for the last few hours!!
  3. Going to miss him so much, largely because of his ambition this year which is so clearly to have got to the Prem. My take is that he tried to do it, almost single handedly via his own hard work and attitude alongside the opportunities he was gifted last season by LJ et al. I believe the reason he didn’t sign a new contract was because he carried on hoping that it would be us who took him to the Prem and I imagine he was horribly disappointed by some of the players around him not giving their all in the same way he did. His message to us seems heartfelt. He gets to the Prem, he’s still near home and he’s still near the club he has been with for so many years. Yes, it’s Cardiff, but as we constantly bemoan we are a long way from any other Prem or indeed Championship club. Good Luck our Bobby
  4. That’s a bit how I feel- it would be like walking past your ex on the street....and trying not to cry ( until you’ve got round the corner!)
  5. In. Gave lots of reasons last season for this and none of them have changed. Haven’t commented much this season but have used my “ likes” to endorse my opinion. For whoever was interested in the demographic of who thinks what- I’m female, 56 and have been watching since I was about 7. I get the disappointment but still think we are genuinely improving year on year and feel more positive about the future than at any time I can remember since crying on holiday when I heard about Cheesley’s leg break and knowing it was all going to be downhill from there...
  6. You can still park there though- done it many times!
  7. Hounslow West is even better as the parking is free at the weekend!
  8. I expect it’s because it will mean payments come in before the end of this financial year and so can be accounted for as such.
  9. Oh dear- I read the title of this thread in a “ Welease Woderick” kind of way....
  10. This is absolutely true- because he is so tall and so committed he looks like an aggressive player which, in my opinion, he is not ( I consider him to be 100% focussed on the ball & playing his game, indeed these are his reasons, apparently, for not wanting to be captain). The refs see this fiercely determined giant of a man and automatically think he is likely to be the one dishing it out, when often the opposite is true. He has made a very noble apology on his Instagram account ( and I expect, elsewhere) and should be applauded for accepting the blame, wanting to learn from it and moving on. When he is back I expect him to be working doubly hard ( is this even possible!!) to make up for it!
  11. Would you be prepared to just sell just the adult one?? Orbs better for both to be used but if they’re still available I may well need just the one!! Ignore this message!! We’re sorted! Sorry!!
  12. STOP! I can’t play my CDs fast enough- still on The Specials!! To sum up this thread.... the music was fab the violence was not!!!
  13. Yes- in Redland too! https://www.bristolpost.co.uk/news/bristol-news/bristol-just-earthquake-1228253?utm_source=google_news&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=google_news&utm_content=sitemap
