  1. So has my daughter and she was reading her instructions for her lateral flow test last night which she will be doing today and has to provide a negative test result at the ground tonight.
  2. Me too. Loved them days hanging on the railings and being close to Stanley Mathews.
  4. No, Dolman is out far earlier than the bus men used to be.
  5. Ice lollies had a stronger flavour than the lemonade. As you say happy days.
  6. After a day in Victoria Park round to Sid Gill's for a penny(old type) bottle of weak lemonade with a fizzy stick in it.
  7. See you chose your words carefully in the last paragraph.
  8. My mum's favourite, all us kids knew all the words. Sat around the wireless, no telly then, listening to dramas like Quatermas and Cabin in the clearing. My abiding memory of the football results was following a 1958 6-1 opening day win at home to Rotherham the Tuesday night game result was read out. Barnsley 4 Bristol City SEVEN Then we lost 4-0 away to Sheffield United on the Saturday. Result heard on the trannie whilst bathing in the Pool ( Tropicana ) at W-S-M. Bloody useful them new fangled transistors.
  9. Probably not what you were thinking but now that things are easing and the weather's turning spare a thought for the kids. In my day, back in the 50s, I know..., we would spend as many hours as we possibly could playing football in the park. When it came to sides there was always the shout " bags I Atyeo" and then try to emulate "Big John" with our goal scoring feats. What have the poor souls got now, forgetting the plastics, how many would be clamouring to get out the shout "bags I Wells or Diedhiou"
  10. All the aspects mentioned above I have been crying out about for years especially at the ground. Now watching games on TV I am driving "her indoors" up the wall with my incessant cursing and I'm now being threatened! Guess I watched my last game of the season yesterday.
  11. Apologies if I appeared to insult your intelligence but it appeared that you favoured only moving on Wells and Palmer from the players with contracts. There's so much to be done and I suppose we all have differing opinions on player's level of performance. Without going into individuals I feel we have very few at the level required, unproven youngsters accepted, when compared to what we are playing agains in this league and that includes bottom of the league Wycombe.
  12. Blimey, is that the only changes you feel need to be made.
  13. I'll feed the lines, you just ........
  14. Also made a brilliant diving save with my right hand to deflect the drive over the bar. Not sent off in those days for something as petty. Trouble was they scored the pen and for the last 55 years I have had a dodgy right wrist and unable to grip as well as my left one.
