  1. 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
  2. funny is it not - we were "that" club - I still have the framed original shares I bought - worth nothing but the club survived - just
  3. Ah - the Bath Pavilion - saw a few there myself inc The Jam (79 ish)
  4. 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
  5. 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)!
  6. Saw loads - Stranglers Exhibition - I am sure there was spitting and Hugh leapt off stage and poleaxed some geezer with his guitar :laugh: - never saw the Clash (grrrrr) had (still have) a ticket for the Pistols at the Bamboo Club Can even remember seeing Siouxie at YATE and Blondie - saw the Damned backing T REX and left after the Damned (fool that I was)
  7. I could just go for a Clarks Pie - been ages since I had one - do they do Postal Deliveries!
  8. 2 millionth - I can only dream of such heights.........
  9. Crikey - I knew this might be popular but a month ago tickets were easy and as it was November I thought I would save my pennies and buy nearer the time - now I look and I cannot find tickets anywhere - has it sold out, has it been cancelled? Anyone know a link to somewhere where I can find 3 tickets?
  10. Trip-Advisor So - followed the good advice here and just drank in the centre - then ambled across to the Fiddlers and found the band we were off to see were not on for another hour - what do do? The Apple Tree The ambiance was somewhat let down by the fact that several of the windows were boarded up and we were not even sure it was open - but it was, and there were 4 of us, so in we went. In the course of our hour there we had quite a time. With no offence to anyone it did feel a little like the scene in American Werewolf when we walked in as nearly everyone turned and gave us a look that sort of said "who the **** are you". First joining us at our table were two young men who may have been physically present but whatever they were smoking or had imbibed meant there heads and thoughts were on a different planet if not in another galaxy. Buying the round - 4 pints of Thatchers - £12 not at all bad and a nice friendly barman. Slightly odd was one customer who was holding two cans of lager (not glasses - cans) and who did not let up on the slightly challenging stare all the time we were in there. Also slightly odd was given that the demographic of the clientele (including us) was one of "slightly older and all had seen better days" there was one young and really attractive young lady who just seemed out of place (I add here that a young really handsome young man would have looked equally out of place but there wasn't one). After a little while we had another enthusiastic young man singing and dancing to the juke box and then.............the almost inevitable punch up - not involving us and not sure what it was all about but quite impressive entertainment. After this on purchasing our next round (yes we stayed) the landlord apologised for the flare up and was the perfect host. Gents Loo was suitably aromatic Would we visit again? Yes - if attending the Fiddlers again a trip to the Apple Tree brings with it good value, a touch of nostalgia for pubs we used to know and a hint of trepidation.
  11. I tried to join the leagues - but it does not show me as joining - just stays on the page (and I know I am keying the codes in correctly) - any ideas what I am doing wrong?
  12. Yeah - it is a weird old venue - but normally I do as suggested drink in town and wander out - I just thought I might try a few places a bit closer - I shall submit my review of the Apple Tree to TripAdvisor!
  13. :laugh: - I just knew it was close...........
  14. Long Ryder's play there on Sunday (terrific live band) - but my Train arrives Bemmie at half four - 4 hours to kill so will need a few refreshers best suggestions? I think the Apple Tree is close by and was wondering in the Rope or the Windmill are worth a wander to?
