  1. I’m exactly the same Glos, after nearly 40 years of watching City home and away, I now don’t go, and I don’t miss it at all. I never ever thought I would be saying this. I do know others that feel the same. I now get more of a buzz watching local non league games. I will always love the City and all the City supporting mates I made over the years, but I don’t feel any affinity towards the players on the pitch,, and the new breed of supporter that now goes to AG. I totally understand that times have changed, but it’s not for me anymore.
  2. That was a great day at NP, I genuinely miss days like that, really raw. I haven’t watched a City game for 18 months now, last time I was at the Gate it felt like I was in amongst a cricket crowd. I’m not condoning crowd trouble, but we have gone from one extreme to another, football has become far too sanitised imo.
  3. A person he hasn’t signed, then complains he didn’t have one available!!
  4. I know one of the officials who was due to officiate at Truro City today, that game was called off at 8am!
  5. I’ve received my letter, haven’t got many shares, but I don’t really want to sell them tbh. I will wait for a reminder!!
  6. I hated the idea of it, I don’t want any technology in football at all, tv cameras and companies are now running the game. The only thing I like about VAR,is that the majority who wanted it now can see just how farcical it is. Just let the officials get back to officiating,, yes mistakes happen, but does anyone really want the game to be perfect. It never has been, but we all still enjoyed it.
  7. I would be interested in other people’s opinions, to me as soon as I saw it I thought that’s Paul Stevens.
  8. But, is that a picture of Jon, it looks more like Paul Stevens to me?
  9. Add on stylish, he also had the look of a terrace lad at the time, the casual look. Very sad news, it really hits home, it feels like I grew up with him in a strange sort of way, him and the rest of the young players gave us such pride on the terraces in those days. They gave on the pitch what we felt as City fans, after an horrendous 3 relegations and nearly losing our club, Jon and his team mates gave us back our pride. Someone on this thread mentioned one of our chants from back in those days, “ we’re proud of you” was the chant, I certainly was when watching what Jon gave to us, r.i.p Jon.
  10. I saw them at the Locarno a couple years later, the concert ended with more people on the stage than in the audience! A raucous night, good times I saw them again recently at Glastonbury abbey, they still have it, even though the energy levels aren’t the same!,
  11. I’ve read on a NZ news website that NZ offered to play the game against Italy on Friday, the day before the scheduled date, but World Rugby wouldn’t allow it.
  12. There was live football that you could have watched tonight, for instance, I’ve just got home after watching Ashton and Blackwell v Wincanton Town. An enjoyable passionate game.
  13. Portland United lost 0-1 at home to Salisbury . It was the furthest Portland had got in the FA Cup for 55 years!
  14. That is the general rule anyway. Referees have been told to be aware of this in all games.
