  1. It's hard for Fulham fans, because when they lose a game, they can't cheer themselves up a bit by kicking the opposition fans' heads in afterwards - not even Reading fans - because they are a bunch of wet jessies.
  2. I've noticed this too. I think it's because we are no longer not buying well, and instead, buying well
  3. ....boot the grime of this Championship in the crotch, lad (as they say oop your way, Josh)
  4. We have had worse, in his position, at this level... we've had better as well, to be fair
  5. People forget how old he is - or is that, er, thingy whatsisname?
  6. Those that went in the 40s, when we got to the top in the 70s, and drew large crowds, might, being 30 years older, have fancied a seat, for the view, the guaranteed spot, the roof over your head, a bit of comfort, and being away from the young people that chanted obscenities and fought with each other; only, in a 37,000 capacity, there were a mere 7000 seats, many already sold to season ticket holders. So, if it was raining, you couldn't get a seat, what did you do? Many didn’t bother. If you go back and read the programmes from 75 to 80, there's a lot of mention of crowd behaviour impacting attendances and improving "facilities," often in Alan Dicks words to supporters. What AD didn't mention was the standard of football but it is well documented elsewhere. Compared to the post war and 50s it was negative, cynical and too "professional."
  7. The football wasn't "great" or any sort of "golden age" in the 70s; being 15 to 25 is what lots of (now) overweight, middle aged blokes are remembering as a "golden age," without quite realising it. That's the point
  8. They weren't though. Crowds were dwindling steadily throughout that decade, as violence - off and on the pitch - increasingly negative and cynical football (hence the back pass law and three points for a win in the early 80s), and abysmal facilities turned hundreds of thousands off. By the early 80s, the game was on its knees, the crowds were dire (huge unemployment contributed to this too,mind), and the nadir was fast approaching. Things happen for a reason and we have the game we have now, because of the way the game was before. As I mentioned earlier in this thread, being 15 - 25 is a "golden age" not the football particularly. Today's 15 to 25 years olds will, in 30 years time, be looking back on their own "golden age" of 2019/20, while youngsters about them roll their eyes and yawn
  9. Things Wrong With Modern Football : middle and old aged blokes banging on about the football of their youth, oblivious to the probability that they are, instead, sad and grieving for their lost youth, for the days when they were 15/18/21, and everything was new and fresh and to be explored and experienced. And finding the young fellows of 15/18/21/25 around them in the crowd and out there on the pitch in 2019 difficult to warm to or understand. It has ever been thus, at football. Mind you, that Downsey is a ****ing m***n and this whole Bristol Sport s**t gets on my ****ing ***s
  10. There are no flies or insects hitting car windscreens and bumpers and reg plates anymore - because there are no flies or insects anymore.
  11. Liverpool were champions in 1976....
  12. It doesn't work like that, mate...
  13. There's plenty more fish in the sea, surely? No, silly me, that metaphor doesn't work now, does it.....plenty more plastic in the sea?
  14. Rovers were crud in 1976, and below us in the pecking order; with a small contingent of bitter, deluded, scruffily dressed oddballs for a home crowd (and an away following about four times the size), prone to telling fibs. Elsewhere, the country was coming to terms with a momentous referendum, referred to around these 'ere parts as "Brentry."
  15. Currently considerably more leaky/worse than the much derided Flint, Wright and Magnússon and the non-tracking back Joe Bryan (and the covering midfield of Pack and co) and Frankie too, of 2017/18 after the same number of games (19). Yes, they went to pieces after Christmas but only after a long cup run, and a dismal/disastrous/disruptive January transfer window.
  16. We have conceded 27 goals in 19 games - only the bottom four plus Huddersfield and QPR have conceded more - I wonder if your critical focus is aimed at the wrong end of the pitch?
  17. What about: next week, Joe Bryan cleans him out with a tasty two footed, red card, 20 man brawl instigating lunge and HNM breaks both ankles, thus ruling him out until next autumn?
  18. You still extrapolate, at this time of year, with this club, and this head coach? After all we've been through? Don't worry, mate. Try again. What you thinking? Going up?
  19. Yes, we were. Same as about six or seven other sides at the bottom at that time, only three of whom actually did go down of course
  20. Worse than us? Blimey....
  21. He was appointed on 6 Feb, the day of the Charlton game. He watched from the director's box in the stand alongside SL. Wade Elliott spoke to the press after the win. That sound like Lee in charge? Nope? Charlton was the last of 4 games that Pemberton "managed."
  22. LJ took over after the win at Charlton, which left us 20th in the Championship, three points above the drop.
  23. Cheers, mate. Some lovely thoughts there. This is what I'm going to remember when we go 0:1 down after 5 minutes on Saturday.....
