  1. Bring back Dave Llo ..... on second thoughts, no. Good luck in your new role Matt, and good luck to your successor.
  2. Certainly did, and he remains a good friend. In fact we're working on something together at the moment.
  3. Here's my Take That claim to fame. Back in the early 90s, when I was very nearly almost famous for playing a stupid Norman soldier on the kids show Maid Marian and her Merry Men, some of the cast did a guest appearance on a TV show called Hangar 17, which was a sort of variety show for kids. As I recall, we were in a showbiz quiz against a team from East Enders. Other guests on the show were Take That. I'd never heard of them, but my 13 year old niece begged me to get their autographs. They were in the dressing room over the corridor and only too happy to oblige. Nice lads. There was something about the reaction they got in the studio that day that made me think they might do well for a year or two
  4. When I was SLO we had a scheme in place where disabled supporters could park at Ashton Park school and then use a free shuttle minibus to the ground. I think that's still going. Gareth Torpey in the Supporter Services team looks after disabled supporters, and he should definitely be your first port of call.
  5. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://www.bbc.co.uk/bristol/content/image_galleries/cablecarplan_gallery.shtml%3F2&ved=2ahUKEwjCrZ3C_tPhAhVlqHEKHT81BJ4QFjACegQIARAB&usg=AOvVaw2AjCpzdq8C8eXugYqACdhA
  6. When I was last involved with this a couple of years ago, the planned site for the AG station was just behind the car showroom on the Winterstoke Rd. But there were real doubts at the time as to whether there would be a station there as part of the first phase of the new line development. Not sure how up to date this site is, but you can get full info here: http://ashtongatestation.org.uk/?page_id=82
  7. Interesting stuff. I am generally supportive of stewards at football, who often have a thankless task, but I have often thought that the desperate attempt of a man in a high vis jacket to get between celebrating players and fans is a ridiculous over-reaction that is far more likely to cause trouble rather than reduce it. It certainly is time for a review of some of the regulations which govern the policing of football.
  8. I thought s82 did a great job on Tuesday, keeping the songs going in the face of some less than inspiring football. Talking of simple songs that everyone knows the tune to, whatever happened to the Hey Jude / Diedhiou song?
  9. Brian Clough. He lasted 2 months. Followed by Jimmy Armfield.
  10. I was 11 when England won the World Cup, and it ignited in me a passion for football that had only really smouldered up until that point. As others have said, the word legend is overused, but that team fully deserve that status. I can unhesitatingly name the entire side (and the clubs they played for) as if I was reciting my 10 times table. As for Gordon Banks, he was the keeper everybody wanted to be in our playground kickabouts. I have a framed photo of 'that' save, signed by both Banks and Pele. It's one of my most treasured possessions. RIP.
  11. We have away fans in hospitality for most games. Not usually very many, and we make a point of asking them to keep any goal celebrations to a minimum. There is rarely an issue with 'over-celebrating', as like the vast majority of people in the stadium they are just there to watch a game of football, and understand that they need to be reasonably discreet about how they do it.
  12. You are of course entirely entitled to your point of view, but don't presume to tell me what mine is. There is nothing 'politically correct' about my view on Downsy. It just happens to be what I think.
  13. For the record, I love my new role up in hospitality, and I think Downsy does a good job too.
