  1. He's got a f***** knee in Bakes' back there, ffs, to go with the leverage from both hands on his shoulders.
  2. "i" before "e" kid, that's my phil-os-o-phee
  3. Not a chance he could, mate. He's 69 now, nowhere near fit enough to keep up with play (and blow a whistle. Think he would've disallowed their third, mind)
  4. You might want to tweak those expectations of yours. 1. It is September. The play-offs are way off (about as far away as Preston). 2. It is Preston. More than two hours away. We don't really do away trips requiring more than two hours on the motorway or a train. We will follow the City, but only so far. There is a limit. We "do" West to Swansea, North to Birmingham, East to this side of London, and that's about it. Back home by 7.30, latest). 3. It's Preston. It'll be disappointing. 4. For many of us, getting to - and parking close to - and getting from Ashton Gate is enou
  5. Everyone wants to go, when there aren't enough tickets to go round; no-one wants to go, when there's thousands of tickets going spare/it's Preston.
  6. Blimey, Dave. Job keeping up with all this. Your like @Never to the dark side only he does early dawes and you does evening doors
  7. We played Lincoln in 85 and 86. I remember going there in a transit; no seats, no windows, everyone sprawling and rolling around in the back. Long way travelling like that. Think it was 1:1.
  8. So it was just Bright (and Pardew) but no Wright? That's how cup runs get going, I suppose
  9. 1. Let the centre halves know you are there, early doors 2. Knock it in the channels 3. Get across the near post 4. Stand it up at the back stick and don't die wondering 5. Keep on letting the centre halves know you are there 6. All of the above, but if it can be enacted by someone who knows where the goal is, happy days
  10. You'r ongoing daily apostrophe catastrophe i's doing my blinkin' head in, sir. Can you' not sort it? '
  11. Because we've got serious bloody injury problems! Because the spine - and the quality - of the team is crocked. For months. Because you need a good splodge of good fortune to be promoted - and having half your nailed on starters out for months leaves you lacking in the good fortune stakes. Because we look short of goals now. Just because ok?
  12. That's why we went all out to get the kid Eddie - to have a bit of "spectacular" where you want it: up top, popping the ball in the net. Without him, and with Afobe, we were not spectacular, merely jolly good. Remains to be seen what we will be without Eddie and Afobe.
  13. Not as good as Beauden Barrett, Col. Like to see Lansdown pull his finger out and splash the cash on the boy Barrett in January.
  14. Did he know his bruv was there today, singing it too?
  15. There's "much crying" here, but it's all about our injured starters (Kalas, Dasilva, Nagy, Afobe, Smith and, er, Capn Wright) and nothing to do with your tame swans....
  16. Because the spine of the team is crocked, mate.
  17. Saturday's ref lives life with insults, mate. Drinks lots of beer and waits for half-time ree-sults. La la la la la la la la.....
  18. To also be fair: 735 Janners at Port Vale. In L2. Bristol to Lincoln: 183 miles; 3 hours 4 mins. Plymouth to the Potteries: 240 miles; 3 hours 54 mins.
  19. Hope this pushes him - them both - forward. Onwards and upwards (and backwards and sideways)
  20. He's a parent, to three children, and his eldest is 9. Nine! Compared to most footballers, he's practically an adult/grown up.
  21. Surely we're bigger than them ... er, silly me! What am I thinking? Surely we're bigger than that?
  22. You mention "realistic" there and I think this is the key:- reality (ie that which cannot be denied or fibbed about or dreamed up or manipulated or massaged in the mind: the league table, which does not lie remember) has them wedged between Mk Dons and Shrewsbury, and trailing "the likes of" Wycombe, Fleetwood, Burton and Rochdale. Who wants to dwell on and inhabit that reality, that undeniable, unbearable truth? When you can dream up your own more pleasant, alternative "reality" where your support could be up there with West Ham or Blackburn (imagine imagining your support could be "righ
