  1. Too young to have been there but she was an utterly fascinating musician. Anyone who can write a song of the calibre of Wuthering Heights at 18 deserves all the respect in the world. Also love that she was really shy and had enough of the industry (and enough money) to say **** it all, I'm done with it. One of the few acts I haven't seen that I would love to have seen along with Prince and Bowie (I may have seen Bowie in early 2000's at Glastonbury but have no recollection although mates say we were there).
  2. A Day In The Life for me. My mum loved The Beatles so grew up listening to them. Fantastic band and were game-changers to the music industry. Personally, I preferred The Stones.
  3. https://footballleagueworld.co.uk/bristol-city-duo-close-to-agreeing-deals-at-ashton-gate/amp/ This article has just popped up on my recommendations and it made me think that are we really on the cusp of producing top quality footballers or is it just hyperbole from the club to justify it's expenditure on the academy? I admit, I know next to nothing about our youth players from U16's to U21's as apart from one interview with LJ recently, nobody at the club (or fans on social media) has ever really hyped up our youth players. Is this because we want to keep it low key or because we dont want to put too much pressure on the the better players or because we dont have any top prospects? I honestly dont know. For years our academy was poorly ran, but recently we have seen the likes of Reid, Bryan and Kelly move upwards and they were here before the restructuring and investment into the academy (and lower age groups) happened. This leads me to believe that considering the large investment we have put into it over the last 5-6 years we should start seeing returns on that over the next few years and onwards which will, hopefully, bear fruit. Does anyone have an opinion on our players or set-up when it comes down to our younger age groups? Genuinely interested.
  4. Teddy Sheringham for Millwall down AG around 1990ish. Lost 4-0 and he got a hat trick. Very special player Also, Ruud Gullit for Chelsea in a pre-season friendly. 50 yard passes with outside of both left and right feet to John Spencer's toes on the wing. Never seen anything like it before or since.
  5. My all time favourite game and was in the East End that night too. Utter mayhem. The G*s fans chanting in the minutes silence for Les Kew(?). I've never known the Gate that hostile before or since. Devon White diving for the penalty, Leaning saving it. Donowa scoring at the open end with a few minutes to go to finally put to an end the hoodoo they had over us at the time. Utter scenes.
  6. Dave 'Smudger' Smith for me with an honourable mention for Super Bob, Biff and Shaun Taylor.
  7. Ahem, 'according to friends', she can be found doing things Beverley Goodway would've blushed at on certain websites
  8. Sod this, I'm gonna watch Masterchef instead.
  9. 1-0 down and were lucky to have the Nil. I've watched some shit over the years but 45mins may have been the worst if the lot. Utterly inexcusable performance
  10. That parking ticket you got still rankles doesn't it? Let it go.
  11. https://www.bcfc.co.uk/news/city-sign-nahki-wells/ It's on the OS so now everyone on here can believe we've signed NW.
  12. Louis Britton has scored goals wherever he has played no matter the level. He's got a talent that cant be taught, and is the Academy player I have the most hope for to make it at first team level. A bit like Tammy but less all-round polished.
  13. Donated mate. Good on you and best of luck
  14. I actually used that very quote when in Ernest Hemingways favourite bar in Cuba (La Bodeguita Del Medio) this Christmas when my Mrs asked me if I've ever read any Hemingway
  15. Oh wow, that's shocking news. Absolutely devastating for the whole family. My thoughts and prayers go out to all concerned. RIP Amora.
