  1. Filwood Baths long gone which maybe appropriate for the subject of your second paragraph.
  2. I always thought the stock answer to the consultant when he informed you of heart problems and advised not to do anything that caused excitement was " it's alright doc I only go to watch the City".
  3. redysteadygo


    And both poorly positioned for the first.
  4. Will the tide turn today? Think that should read. Will the side turn up today?
  5. My daughter who goes to rugby surprised me with a Robins key ring and car fresheners from the shop ( as well as other things). She just laughed when I told her that due to current form/entertainment I was contemplating disowning my 66 year relationship with City. But I know I won't, although I haven't even considered the upcoming FA Cup game.
  6. Two thirds, really. I consider the offensive middle third to be more lacking than the final third. Hence the problem at both ends.
  7. Sorry to resurrect this thread but blimey Holden's banging on about it now. His description of how we play and the ability of our players is at odds with the way I see things and I'm not just talking about the last three games.
  8. Told this story before on here. 1968 Princess of Wales darts team mystery outing. Roy Savage, the landlord, arranges for us to go to Eastville to watch Rovers v Swindon knowing we are all City fans. But to get us all seated together we are booked in as Swindon supporters in the stand on the left looking from the gas works/tote end. Swindon do us proud by winning 2-1. After a few drinks in their supporters club it's off up the A38 to the now defunct Newport Towers and meal and plenty to drink.
  9. 1972 met the lads in the Venture at lunchtime to catch a coach to the ABA finals at Wembley to cheer on local Knowle Wester Malcolm Jones. About six lads had tickets for the FA cup final next day Leeds v Arsenal. By some chance there was a spare ticket so I grabbed it. Disappointingly Malcom lost and after a few bevvies we squatted down in a Shepherds Bush doss house with my cup final ticket safely tucked in my underpants. The next disappointment was bloody Leeds winning. Watched many games when working in London and a local derby Hibs v Livingstone just after they had morphed from Meadowbsnk Thistle.
  10. Always thought the actual pitch was on the large side, comparatively. Well up to Sunnyside Lane.
  11. Will we soon have a new column for the league tables? Points deducted.
  12. Same for me, and I mean me as well as my dad. Also had to look after the brown leather ball maintenance. Unlace the ball, pull out the bladder "dickie" and untie the lace that ensured the air didn't escape, pump up the bladder to the required size then retie and relocate the dickie, relace the ball with a lacing tool and finally coat the ball with dubbin to try and keep the leather waterproof. That was weekly through the season for Locomotive Sports in the Wednesday League.
  13. Whilst I entirely agree about Brownhill's pass, one of the many misplaced during the last two matches, Massengo should have made sure their player went nowhere by whatever means it took. He's not a hardened pro yet.
