  1. Wasn't much hugging and kissing going on in the Bristol and District in my day. Just banning that when players are still tackling each other, still jumping for the same ball, still hooking up for defensive walls seems pointless. If they are to strictly observe the rules then football must stop - it's a contact sport. Despite all the safeguards there still seem to be a lot of Covid cases on football, so precautions dont seem to be working that well. Of course it's good for us to watch the game, but then again you can see some not taking social distancing seriously when they see what h
  2. Oh dear. Was thinking about posting something about Rowe and Martin, but that would be no Laugh In matter.
  3. Crikey, this is just how major World religions start. She is ris! Hallelujah!
  4. A friend of mine was coming back from London on the train late with a mate one evening. They'd been at the bar for a while and had taken on more than a few beers when Tommy Doc turned up. Somehow they thought it funny to break into song: "Who's up Mrs Brown, who's up Mrs Brown". Hilarious eh? After a couple of sharp words, one of which was 'off' he bought them a drink and had a good long natter. Very decent old style football bloke by all accounts.

    .... and Fammy is a big asset in defence, as well as being a warrior with a good attitude.
  6. Exactly. Walls of Jericho are even mentioned in the Bible, along with Lyons of Judea.
  7. Well take it from someone who was actually there. Awful, awful decision. Bear in mind that New Zealand were very poor - Test Match canon fodder. It would be 1978 before they beat England for the first time and that was in New Zealand. Summarising, they were completely crap. In the event England won the Edrich Test Match by an innings and 187 runs. England weren't exactly pressed for time.
  8. This clove studded satsuma apparently going into mulled wine. Looks like the coronavirus to me. Merry Christmas all. COYR.
  9. I saw him score his 310 not out in the Test Match vs New Zealand at Headingley in 1965. Towards the end of innings he was totally dominant, scoring at will. A couple for hours more would have seen him break Hutton's record of 365. Unfortunately for him the captain, MJK Smith of Warwickshire, declared and England went on to win with almost a day to spare. A terrible decision for which MJK was rightly roundly booed that day. Edrich was a brilliant player (even if if he did play for Surrey) and am told a really good bloke. Sad news, RIP.
  10. On the same logic does this mean we shouldn't try to close down shots from 25 yards as well? (We do seem to have conceded a ridiculous number of deflections this year). The research is interesting but totally one sided and seems counter-intuitive to me. No stats on what happens if there is no wall - not a thing.
  11. Wow! Must admit I always enjoy watching Leeds these days - certainly no more the cynical bunch that I remember from my youth in Yorkshire. Oh, how I hated Revie's Leeds. Ayling definitely found the right manager. A better version of the player we had, but still rampaging forward and leaving huge gaps at the back. They'll need to tighten up a lot to get anywhere though...
  12. It's Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. Crikey, how difficult is it to get a name right?
  13. 41 years on and still with the same wife. Mind you, these days the leg shaver has been upgraded to petrol driven job.
  14. You think that's bad. The Christmas before we were married I bought my soon-to-be wife a Philips Ladyshave. On reflection I think that was a mistake.
  15. If you are Luke Skywalker you could have self-designated as female. Dont think we should be imposing your gender stereotypes here...
  16. Copied fromthe BBC site: The draw will take place on Monday, 30 November with Mark Chapman presenting live coverage on BBC One from 19:00 GMT
  17. I suppose it's not as bad as his dad not getting the job at City and seeing Tony Fawthrop appointed instead. That must have been quite annoying....
  18. Seem to remember McIndoe and Carle having good go at each other when Carle came back with Palace. I believe it continued afterwards and then into the car park...
  19. He'll want to see plenty of crosses...
  20. Thank you for posting that, and yes it was a clear penalty. Callum was clearly picking up the wider of the two players, and then seeing that the ball was going to the free one of the two came rushing in late from the wrong side. Certainly a poor challenge, but someone else wasn't picking up their man either. A pity, because up to that time he had looked good. Time to support that lad - he could be a good player for us this year.
  21. Sorry, absolutely no idea. Assume that these Smiths that you talk of are some popular beat combo?
