  1. Don't be, or at least know you are not the only one. I was going to admonish BORF for being so sexist but I think I'll just leave it now.
  2. I can't remember thinking this myself, other than they were due another squad rebuild that obviously Fergie would not be around to oversee? Perhaps this is when they should have created a DOF role and put Fergie in it? Anyway, the real reason for replying was it reminded me I thought this way about Cloughie when he left Forest - weren't they relegated in his final season? I know he always had a 'thing' for chairmen so there might have been an F U going on, and his boozing might have been pretty bad at this stage which pickled his thinking...
  3. Was the country in an extended lockdown during the summer of '76? Just wondering what's going on with all the hair...
  4. Indeed. I was thinking maybe he could have said 'when I was in the youth squad at Watford and they were in the Premier League...'. As a modest person might choose to say. But perhaps he did, or something similar and the paper edited it as they are want to do for succinctness without giving any thought to how the remaining words would be interpreted by us OTIBers
  5. Season 2001-2002, Xmas / New Year's period due to play QPR at the Gate for the only game I could get to while back in blighty for the holidays. None of the players turned up. Literally, didn't turn up. Bastards. Mind you nobody else did either, something about a frozen pitch. Got to take my wife shopping in Broadmead instead. Happy Days.
  6. Careful, you can be fined and/or arrested for doing that in public at the mo
  7. The only time you will see these two words together in relation to any topic, post or conversation concerning the anniversary kit. Unless it's Seneca the Younger saying 'actually never mind, it is a damn good thing nobody was able to buy me one of these things'.
  8. I believe there is a mountain close by they could climb (or rather walk using the well worn path). And down again. And up. Down, and so on. That should tucker out the young chaps...
  9. Thanks for sharing Bristol 86 and no one should underestimate the bravery of this young man in reaching out for help and basically airing himself and his demons on social media, to Sammie's actions for actively helping and of course everyone one else who responded with help. Incredibly timely for me and helped bring out a much needed round of 'waterworks'. Literally within the last 24 hrs my own teenage son has been hospitalized for walking out into traffic in an apparent suicide attempt. Thankfully physically he is okay and now getting the help he needs. Look out for your loved one
  10. My most memorable oppo' player moment is not a stand out performance as such, though I do concur on Collymore for Forest in that 4-1. Remember him applauding all 4 sides of the ground after we 'inspired' his hat-trick. But, it was mid 90's ish not long after Atyeo stand opening and before relegation, a game against West Brom. In the corner by the Dolman and one of their players blocked a stinging low cross with his thigh. He turned to the Atyeo rubbing his thigh, with an exaggerated pained look and mouthing 'ooh that really hurt'. Much laughter all around. Always preferred those folks
  11. Yeah. Not that this stuff should be forgotten about or viewed with any kind of nostalgia, but exactly what relevance does this have to tonight's game? Is it something the post prints every time we play Reading away? Perhaps the writer is Gas and the six digits on each hand confused him when using them to erroneously determine it's the 25th anniversary this year...
  12. Assuming the premier league fellas don't want to also eat their cake then I think this is a perfectly logical condition to any agreement to scrap replays. I would go further and give the lower league team the option whether to play home or away if they are drawn at home, say up to the Quarters, and either way the premier team gives up their win bonus, or at least 50%, should they prevail... Playing during the winter break should then be a moot point, so yes then team has to be drawn from first team squad but with an allowance of youth players starting / in the match day squad. On th
  13. Did we are red, we are white, we are ******* dynamite la la la la la la etc make an appearance, even in an ironic kind of way? Would love to hear that next time I tune into Robins TV
  14. Indeed, he's been the best* 'guest' on Robins TV match commentary as well. His first comment after being welcomed was 'ok, I have never done this before so what do you want me to say'? You would have thought they would have chatted about that for 5 minutes beforehand! *Probably helped it was before the hilarious and not so private joke where the currently injured or not selected guest player inserts as many song titles during his co-commentating stint. Don't give up the day job just yet fellas...
  15. Apologies but due to my incredibly debilitating OCD, if we do manage a draw at Wigan then I am going to have to 'hope' for a defeat against Brentford. You see, I just cannot handle the imbalanced nature of a record that reads 10 9 8 (actually ok) but then 11 9 8. (And there's only one way I could go next with a record of 10 10 8) I could probably just about manage until QPR away especially as there is no delay for an international or FA cup weekend, but can we agree that game will be a loss to bring our record to a more orderly 11 9 9. Then we can all hope to win every game to the end
