  2. So, after leaving the drive thru I took my sandwich out of the bag and saw THIS!! Seriously? I went back to the restaurant, went INSIDE (already fuming), asked to speak to the manager. I asked him for an explanation. The manager looked confused, so I pointed at the writing on the sandwich and demanded that he tell me why someone felt the need to write THAT on my sandwich . He answered, "because you ordered a BLT (bacon lettuce tomato) with cheese??” To which i replied “Oh”.

  5. A fitting and genuinely touching thread which is a credit to the man, the memories and the fans. In my lifetime I have had the privilege of seeing and hearing from a number of City ‘legends’, although some fans may use a different term I’m using ‘legend’ to describe individuals whose contribution and commitment to our Club is significantly over-and-above that of others. Each fan will have their own such list of City ‘legends’. My list, based on those I have seen in person, is: John Atyeo, Harry Dolman, Alan Dicks, The Ashton Gate Eight, Steve Lansdown and Terry Cooper. I appreciate there are others that some may add. I’m looking forward to adding Nigel Pearson to this list, in a few years, when he takes us to the Premiership. The Club has recognised, in one or another (albeit sometimes belatedly), the immense contributions of most of these people, the exceptions being Alan Dicks and Terry Cooper. I trust and hope that this will be appropriately rectified by those currently in a position to do so. RIP Terry, condolences to your family and friends and thank you for everything you did for my Club.
  6. Hi Jerry As you may already have spotted there is yet another thread today on the awful sound system at AG, is this something that can be addressed or at the very least can fans be informed re what is planned to rectify things please. Thank you.
  7. As per the title…..https://www.blackpoolgazette.co.uk/sport/football/blackpool-fc/morecambe-1-1-blackpool-cj-hamilton-rescues-the-seasiders-a-draw-in-final-pre-season-friendly-ahead-of-bristol-city-opener-3330305 Lost someone to injury and looked susceptible on the counter attack.

  9. Second half reflections…..greater intensity from us with quicker closing down/ pressing and therefore denying AV the time/space they had in the first half. Scott and Bell looked mature beyond their years. Could have had a pen on 57 minutes, following a good ball from AW to CM. On the hour Villa demonstrate clinical finishing with their first chance of the half, which rather took the shine off our promising start to the half. On several occasions El Ghazi provided them with an outlet who quickly turned defence into attack. We created several half chances without ever really looking like scoring. Thought Matty James had a solid game (subbed on 75 mins). Thankfully no sign of any injuries. Simpson, Nagy, Bell and Wells (playing central) all got at least 30 minutes. With Pring and Bakinson both getting 15 minutes. All-in-all a good training game for us which showed our improvements/strengths and weaknesses. Compared with last season a more entertaining watch, with us more workmanlike, in better shape physically and with a greater balance throughout. As we know creativity, and even more so, goal scoring remain key unresolved concerns.
  10. First half reflections. Brilliant to have fans back! Good training experience. Villa very comfortable with lots of time / space and playing well within themselves. Looks like if they stepped it up a bit they could add to their lead. We look well organized and have kept our shape. Predictably there’s been very little from us going forward. Atkinson has looked at home, Palmer has had a couple of moments, James looks comfortable. We are giving them the freedom of AG in their half and so it’s a bit attack against defence at times. Overall that half illustrates the gulf between Championship and Premiership teams.

  15. Dhamaka in Clare Street is the place for superb Indian street food.
  16. Slightly wider afield, Noggins chippy in Nailsea is consistently excellent.
  17. Just learnt that Bells Diner is permanently closed. Recent trip back home meant a bit of eating out all these were good, Quay Street Diner, Franco Manco, Honest, the last two are both in Clare Street.
  18. Got baked today, so will be staying indoors tomorrow.
  19. No idea, but I remember Gordon Low
  20. I’ve just had a call from Fammy, who said he’s been thinking about what Bakes did…….
  21. Stick a caption on this. First prize a Robins TV pass - that won’t work - for the Pompey game.
  22. Got me thinking if I had a cheese plate comprising of ex-players who would I go for, decided on Jay Emmental Thomas, Gerry Gouda, Edam Webster and Paul Cheesley.
