  1. Pitch Invader

    I was very reassured to see armed officers patrolling the route of the Bristol Half Marathon yesterday. As I toiled up the steep hill on Broad Weir after 11 miles of running, I did ask one of them to put me out of my misery and shoot me, but he just laughed :-)
  2. Happy 20th Birthday OTIB

    She was his mum, not his Gran. Lovely lady. Lee was a nice guy too.
  3. Watching On The Moon

    Terrible pub. No atmosphere
  4. What does Lansdown see that most of us can't ?

    I'll tell you what Steve sees that the rest of us don't. Nice place Guernsey.
  5. Matty Taylor

    I don't get it. What did Matty Taylor's father do?
  6. Jamie McCombe - Interview

    Of all the players I got to know a little in my time at AG, Jamie was one of the nicest, friendliest most genuine men you could wish to meet. I remember arriving early at Wembley for the play off final as I was due to do a bit of pre match announcing. An hour or so before kick off I was standing in the tunnel as the players came out onto the pitch to warm up. To my surprise, Jamie was standing there in his matchday suit. 'Why aren't you playing?' I asked, mystified as to why our defensive linchpin wasn't in the team. 'I've not been well', he replied, simply. I'll never forget the look in his eyes as he stood there, watching his mates warming up on the pitch, knowing that his chance of playing at Wembley and competing for a place in the Premier League had been cruelly snatched away. It was a frozen moment in time that will last long in the memory. Great interview.
  7. Smoke

    And that is the situation in a nutshell, and why the club is obliged to take it seriously and act accordingly. They don't have the luxury of being able to pick and choose which laws they obey and which they choose to ignore. There are clearly differing views on smoke devices, but this isn't about whether or not they are a 'good' or a 'bad' thing. It's about obeying the law. Presumably those who think it's OK to break that law because they believe smoke is harmless and they get enjoyment from it, will have no objection if I come to their houses while they're out and walk away with their TVs and laptops while chanting 'I'm Dave L, I do what I want'. I'd quite enjoy that, and I need a new laptop.
  8. Scotty's Guide to The Gate Mk2

    Both. Actually pretty busy at the moment, and a couple of interesting ventures coming up.
  9. Re.Timothy Bird

    He used to give me a load of grief on here, but I always felt that it came from his passion for the club, and I took it in good part. Get well soon Tim.
  10. Scotty's Guide to The Gate Mk2

    No I'm not. Great video though. Well done to all concerned.

  12. Tim Shires sacked?

    That's a real shame, and a very puzzling decision. I always enjoyed working with Tim and felt he had a great fan's perspective of what's required on a matchday.
  13. Downsy

    I didn't, but each to their own. I'd just like to say that I think Downsy does a good job. When I started 10 years ago I got some stick for not being like my predecessor, and Ian has unfortunately had a similar reaction from some. Although it's flattering for me that some people want me to come back, I'm very happy having reverted to being an everyday fan. It was a buzz doing the awards yesterday, but I wish Downsy all the best as your new man on the mic.
  14. Wurzels at Ashton Gate - Sunday 7th May

    I have a season ticket in S18 so I've been a regular this season.
