  1. We have generally finished mid table so I'm not sure how that would be progression, but I get where your coming from, our form for the last third of the season was terrible the way we were winning a game at home would be progression.
  2. There used to be as saying that went round a few years ago that went "you can't educate pork" Big P is one of those examples, the facts stare him in the face yet still he doesn't want to accept them.
  3. But a lot less people who have had the vaccine get very ill compared to those that have not had it, how can you not see that? the facts are there for all to see hospital admissions with a similar number of cases are down 90% I mean come on.
  4. Because those with one are less likely to infect those around them, surely you can see the good in that.
  5. It's to try and encourage you to have it that's all, the final decision is still yours, and are you really going to cut your nose off to spite your face? The vaccine has been proven categorically to have a positive effect on passing it or actually catching it and vastly lessens the effect of covid if you are unlucky enough to have caught it why you wouldn't want to take it is beyond me but again it will be your choice.
  6. We are nearly the same age, my first job in 1972 at Bell and Nicholson in the carpet dept paid £7.50 a week, less than 18 and a half pence an hour!! I may have been a bit hazy on the admission price at the gate. I knew there was a half crown price as I remember it was painted on the wall by the turnstile, I do remember when decimal currency came in in 1970 the club used the old chestnut of making it easier for the turnstile operators by increasing the price to 15p so they didn't have to handle so much change and it would make getting in quicker, that was good of them wasn't it.
  7. From a farthing? what year was that 1894!
  8. 40p! they must have seen you coming, when I started going with my uncle in 1968 he paid 2s/6p and my child's ticket was 1s/6p (7 and a half new pence) by the time I was paying adult prices in 1972 it was an outrageous 30p beat that! (and no I used to climb over the park end wall for nothing :laugh:.)
  9. There is always the exception, I'm wondering if we could keep a team of talented young players with us for long enough to make it again, the odds are against it, you just have to see how many of our promising players have left us for clubs arguably no bigger than us that get parachute payments, it's going to be hard for us going forward, we have to hope though don't we.
  10. Oh I hope you are right but we have been here before "with a talented group of youngsters coming through" it nearly always seems to end up with half of them being poached and us having to start yet again, let's hope your right and this time it's different.
  11. Let's hope that howler hasn't in any way knocked his confidence what a shame it was right at the end.
  12. Try telling that to the Celtic fans didn't they call us animals? I'm assuming from that we took it a little TOO seriously.
  13. Having it away with his own brothers partner tells me all I need to know about him.
  14. You already are, in the winter just gone mostly before people had been vaccinated the chances of dying if you got covid were one in sixty it's currently one in one thousand so what conclusion would anyone with any sense make?
  15. Currently 85% of adults have had first vaccination and nearly 70% their second, hardly barely half is it. I don't know if you are including children in your figure though.
  16. I think if restrictions on unvaccinated people come in (and it's beginning to look inevitable) expect a big rush of people currently saying they don't want the vaccine.
  17. Well at half time you certainly could I used to go for a beer in the sports bar at half time. Sorry if this has already been pointed out.
  18. Potentially though we are a much bigger club than Swansea which makes the fact we haven't been in the top flight since I was in my twenties even harder to stomach.
  19. Yes but they won't keep rising will they, if they do then there is something seriously wrong unless the vaccines do nothing and everyone can get covid multiple times then it will run out of people to infect and at the rate it's going that will be soon, with covid passports now being touted for sports grounds as well just watch the young suddenly flock to get vaccinated then watch the numbers plummet I think there is far too much negativity on here mostly picked up from scare stories that mostly seem to come from the BBC or the Guardian.
  20. Funny how me and you can see that, hope those that can't don't pay the ultimate price, they can't say they weren't warned.
  21. Well if you think the BBC are not biased towards the left wing of British politics I'm afraid we will have to agree to disagree.
  22. Well if the vaccine works as expected they won't will they, by then every adult that wants a vaccine will have had one I think you are getting carried away with all this BBC hype.
  23. ???? ?????? superstar how many goals have you scored so far!
  24. Hope you don't run out of toilet paper!
