  1. I comment not about Nibor's post just this line that I landed on. Like a few others I never even knew who Caroline Flack was - now her life as was is everywhere and on every news channel etc - so just why do people find this twitter/Instagram world so impossible to ignore? Why do people want to read these expose's? I seem to be able to live without this and the pursuit of instant fame and stardom but many people who lament and criticise must be part of the whole thing - just give it all up is my view - stop twittering or inst whatevering - this forum is the only thing like that I take part in and if ended tomorrow I could cope - I watched City long before we had this and lived happily enough I genuinely fear for my little granddaughter who is 5 and the world she will grow up in - she already wants a phone FFS Sigh
  2. Back in the day - we knew these people (footballers) as supporters - they were not that different to us We knew where Chris lived and actually looked him up in the phone book. Rang up and did what all kids do "Hello is that Chris Garland" - "Yes" - silence and then with nothing to say we hung up - he was a top bloke
  3. See - I am not really a Lee in or Lee out person - he is our Manager and on cold stats we are not doing too bad - could have been 3rd. On paper why would we want him to go. In first hand viewing last night I thought it was all going sort of ok until they scored - then it went downhill. On second hand viewing this morning it looked via SKY that actually after about 5 mins we were totally bossed - and then on through the whole game. Brum were quicker, better more tactically astute So for me the enigma is on paper we look like we are doing well but if people harbor the dream of promotion or play-offs - then if you are totally bossed by a side (in form) at home who are or were 17th or 18th then really is Top 6 going to happen? I can understand the frustration but how can you really argue about being Top 6 and still will be Top 6th (or equal) even if Teams below win their games in hand but then we have to watch a performance like that It's a strange season
  4. VAR Ah - see this was my great idea - I have invented DAVE - (Digital Assistant VAR Enhancer) - so when VAR makes a tight or tough decision the VAR Referees can then refer to DAVE. DAVE can overrule VAR or the original REF Decision or agree with either of them or make its own new decision. The Digital DAVE with its even greater enhanced Graphics Upgrade Technology (or GUT) instinctive decision making process will make sure our football is enjoyed in a completely sterile and unemotive environment with nothing that ever needs discussing. DAVE is in the early stages of development( especially working on the GUT) and if there are any would be financiers out there who want to climb on board of Dave and his GUT in the early prototype stage and before we all make millions - pm me DAVE - you know it makes sense
  5. as an old git - I was into Prog, Blues then Punk and New wave and just about anything really (except Jazz) - last year (this year) I thought the Blinders would make it big - not sure who to look out for and might play the Thekla/Louisiana/Fleece etc any suggestions?
  6. Moving my 200l tank to an external filter - so many options but I do want a quiet pump - any one keep fish and can make a recommendation? Looking at the Fluval 307?
  7. Here's hoping :laugh:
  8. Ok - before I go on line and try and look this up - the good Lady Markman does a lot of crafts and our house is full of them - she wondered about setting up a web page and maybe selling some? But - can you just create a webpage/site - do you have to pay - is it best to pay someone to do it etc A quick search on Google came up with millions of pages and just totaly confused me - anyone know? (Ta - most of her work is recycled stuff and a load sold or given to Charity normally)
  9. which is exactly why we should have never taken this path. It should be abandoned. Two wrongs NEVER make a right. It is worse than ever now. A bad or incorrect decision is just that - live with it. (and yes if it happened to City as it has in the past I would be annoyed but I would move on) - VAR will kill football as I know it
  10. funny is it not - we were "that" club - I still have the framed original shares I bought - worth nothing but the club survived - just
  11. Ah - the Bath Pavilion - saw a few there myself inc The Jam (79 ish)
  12. would have liked to have seen the Dead Kennedys - one of my best gigs was the Cramps (bit after punk really) 1980 at Trinity Hall - about a year after they supported the Police at the Locarno
  13. Becki B was from Bristol I think? Clem Burke (Drummer Blondie) is playing at the Thunderbolt next week (Thursday I think) with a band called the Tearaways - I shall pop up for a visit - certainly worth the £12 or so - I will wear colours in case any other City turn up (the emoji is a safety pin)!
