  1. I rather liked that 'Edelweiss' we adapted for Flinty a year or two ago: "Aden Flint, Aden Flint Every match day you greet me Tall and white, keep it tight, You look happy to be here Blossom of SO'D may you bloom and grow, Bloom and grow for ever, Aden Flint, Aden Flint...." Brings tears to me eyes, now. Ashton Gate at its most tender....
  2. Anyone remember that season - very early 80s maybe? - when we were going to sign a couple of players linked with Luton's Bob Hatton, and we were away somewhere, and a chorus of "first we sign Bob Hatton, then we sign ...." someone or other, Mickey Ginn was it? Anyone remember that? No, me neither.
  3. Quelle surprise! Millwall owner: "Explain the slump from last season, Neil" Harris: "The standard of the Championship is improving massively." We haven't improved "massively" on last season, we have improved by one win, and three points. Winning at Millwall, for example, instead of losing like in 2017/18. People in football will say whatever serves their own personal interest before they say anything else.
  4. The circumstantial evidence is enough, for any one not needing to draw attention to themselves daily on a football forum to fill time between bowls matches, to draw the conclusion that Tomlin was a **** and "feuding" with anyone and everyone here, as he had been before us, and after: The interviews available online in which Tomlin discusses his troubles with previous managers. The interview available online where Tomlin goes into his childhood and issues re his father, or lack of one. Tomlin is insecure. The way he related to referees during games. Tomlin "feuds" with authority
  5. The newly-redundant behind-the-scenes "support" team from the popular/reviled/defunct television programme "Jeremy Kyle" could find some gainful employment in the Leeds/West Yorkshire area this evening/this summer....
  6. What were Leeds singing at Derby last weekend? "Stop crying, Frank Lampard" some oasis song?
  7. I predict a riot, I predict a riot....
  8. Swindon got to the final, and played Napoli, in the San Paolo. In front of 55,000. As Swindon went 0:3 up, the locals very understandably took exception, and decided they had seen enough, and, unlike the Dolman tifosi, they took the trouble to stick around and riot, tearing up their own ground and forcing the game to be abandoned. Somewhat unwisely, Swindon took receipt of the trophy on the pitch, hoisting the skipper onto someone's shoulders, thus enraging the locals further. Swindon were then hurried down the steps into the tunnel, under a hail of rocks, and with pitch invaders heading
  9. The "feuding" he refers to is in his "first full season" here, so therefore it means Tomlin. And any others that sided with him against the coach, or the L1 boys, if indeed they did (and that is what happened). Lee neglects to mention that his recruitment of Tomlin was a spectacular error (but one I am sure he has learned and benefitted from), that he was in part responsible for the problem, was unable to manage the problem (until finally washing his hands of him post Preston 0:5), and had Warnock to thank for resolving the problem. He bit off more than he could chew, with Lee Tomlin. Thi
  10. To lose CO'D will be a serious blow. Who else do we have with five syllables to his name? "Kee-ep Callum O'Dowda..... His boots too small to fit his feet, His body injured but his mind is free, Are you so blind that you cannot see (there's a player in there, with five syllables in his name) I say, keep Callum O'Dowda...." "Callum O'Dowda run down your contract for me ..... "
  11. Haven't they got homes to go to? We certainly have (buses to catch, traffic to beat, elderly aunts to visit and so on)
  12. For me, Preston North End (1888) are the greatest premiership team in history
  13. There's 40% more things to do in 2019, other than go to the match, than there were in 1958.
  14. In the "Museum of Tolerance" in Los Angeles, there is a room with interactive exhibits designed to identify the people (black people, women, Jews, gays, short people, fat people, disabled people, all sorts) you can't tolerate. You watch a video on the vast variety of prejudices designed to convince you that everyone has at least a few, and then you are invited to enter the museum proper through one of two doors, one marked PREJUDICED, and the other marked UNPREJUDICED. The latter door is locked, in case anyone misses the point.
  15. I was watching the snooker last week, and two of the semi-finalists (one winner, one loser) were blubbing like babbers straight after. Good job feelings and emotions hadn’t been invented in 1942, we'd never've seen off Jerry....
  16. I checked the Ajax team, expecting eleven new Dutch names to get me tongue around, only to find just four native Netherlanders in their starting line up. Same for Liverpool - four Brits - and Barcelona - four Spaniards. Tottenham started with three Ingerlunders, although that would've been four had Kane been fit.
  17. Brighton had exactly that, but it didn't derail them, long-term. Coming up into the Championship in 2012 they finished: 10th, 4th, 6th then 20th. They then fired their head coach, and their head of recruitment (or CEO). Then they went: 3rd, and 2nd. It's a concern but not necessarily going to be catastrophic - not for a strong club with strong direction and leadership. Bristol City prior to SL and the modernised ground would've collapsed at this level after such a summer/season, I like to think we are not so fragile now. Brighton endured some turbulence and hea
  18. Liverpool (1990) v Tottenham (1961), the final of the long-ago Champions. It might not be 0-0 though
  19. He's connected to the gas, our former gas striker with 40appearances?
  20. Where we lose a 3 goal lead and go out?
  21. If we sign Gayle, we score loads, but let loads in and struggle to hold on to leads. And finish 7th/8th. If we sign Kalas, we don't concede many, but struggle to score enough. And finish 7th/8th...
  22. Thanks for that. Did you write the 'Janet and John' books when we was kiddies?
  23. Who are the mods, who are the mods, who are, who are, who are the mods on this place these days?
  24. 4 wins in our last 15 matches, there's another problem.
