  1. Blimey. Hugh McIlvaney write a thousand words to go with it?
  2. Why would he "fancy a new challenge" at this moment in time, as a matter of interest? Has a "goal" been achieved, a "journey" reached its desired end? What was Ashton's "challenge" here? Finish 8th and it's "job done" ? Was the "project" finish 8th, then 12th, then fall apart? No wonder they shipped Johnson out then, what with his "Premier League club in waiting" and "Europa League" in 5 years lofty ideals.
  3. sag, 1. Sink, subside or bulge downwards under weight or pressure or through lack of strength. 2. Decline to a lower level, usually temporarily * And 3. (From the Oxford online 'learner' dictionary) to hang or bend down in the middle, especially because of weight or pressure, a sagging roof. 'The tent began to sag under the weight of the rain'**. 'Her shoulders sagged in defeat' ***. "The tent began to sag because of the weight of the rain/League One" So, sag: sink, subside, decline, down.**** * "usually"
  4. I did, once. Walsall away, early doors, 84/85 season. Gave it the big 'un in their enclosure under the main stand. Never again (getting a bit old for it, now).
  5. What if you were at the zoo, say, and you got an urgent call to meet someone at Imperial Retail Park - would you go down Park Street then head for Temple Meads and up the Wells Road to Knowle, then take a right at the Broadwalk traffic lights and get to it that way? Be a proper bugger not being able to nip down Bridge Valley Road, up over the Cumberland, then veer left on to Winterstoke road. Fully respect your choice though, mate ...
  6. He missed the boat - the boat Madjeski and Dave Whelan and others hopped on - did Steve. Probably truer to say Steve missed the alarm that would've woken him up in time to catch the taxi that would've got him to the train station in time to catch the (gravy) train that would've got him to the port to board the boat that Madjeski, Whelan et al were waving from as it tooted its horn as it and sailed off into the filthy rich Prem sunset, leaving Steve to watch us at home to Gillingham, again.
  7. The Spirit of Shankly (1965) v The Spirit of Irving Scholar (1983). With Steve Lansdown caught/lost somewhere in the middle/between the two, not quite sure where to turn/trying to sell quick.
  8. Many years ago I saw SW- Bristol City3-1, someoneorother. It was (the day before) ascension day (appropriately, for them), SW was promoted. We weren't at a pub after the game and it was (undoubtedly) like a party of course.
  9. And finish oiling yer decking .....
  10. ....and Barnsley. Let's try and do better than (the likes of) Barnsley, Millwall, Preston, Cardiff, QPR, Luton first. That'd be a start
