  1. Usually find them on my head alongside my car keys
  2. IMHO it isn't until we or someone close to us is touched by a particular problem that we can begin to understand and empathise with a stranger who has these problems
  3. Well said mate. I'm also an intolerant bugger. I think things have moved on considerably since Hunt was with us as many of the comments in the thread about David Cotterill seem to show. And looking much further back, how many of us now feel ashamed for things we said and did as kids to the kids that we would now recognise as having head problems? Throughout our lives the pressure to keep in with our mates by laughing at things that they laugh at is ever present
  4. To say mental health issues are a fashion is insensitive at the very least What's new is that people are now prepared to talk about it and admit they are ill in this way, rather than hide it. In many cases admitting you are ill in this way this is an act of considerable bravery. Therefore we are not qualified to talk about this unless we have experienced it or someone close to us has experienced it.
  5. Sorry mate but It's easy to say that until we suffer with mental illness. Either oneself or a loved-one
  6. It's possible they have an agreement after all the problems LJ faced after the Taylor move
  7. Surprised at some comments about Rowe because what I hope we can all see that he offers the guts and determination (of an ex-captain at Doncaster) as well as football skills and nowse, proved by his assists and goals. We could do with this throughout the team if we are to be credible promotion candidates. We just need to be harder. Whereas COD has shown us lack of guts and determination. Hope this changes but Rowe already has these attributes.
  8. I was convinced Adge was from Nailsea as well mate. I looked it up and although he spent most of his years there he was born in Portishead. This really surprised me as you would think he was from the heart of Somerset. For a non-Bristolian the bloke had amazing ears for the Bristolian dialect. Like Geoffrey Woodruff he could make the authentic phonetics for Bristolian, unlike that prat Dirk Robson whose piffle misled many - "Krek Waiters peak Bristle" - what a ****ing joke and travesty. Shed a tear for Adge everytime I go near Chepstow where he tragically died in a car crash.
  9. That's it mate. Brilliant header in the 87th minute for a 0 - 1 win. GJ said he rose majestically "like Dixie Dean or John Toshack" to nod it in. The other amazing thing was how the other players climbed all over him while he was still stood up after the goal. Looked like he was carrying about 5 of them around. Brilliant. What a season 2007 - 8 was.
  10. Kalas (and Webster , not sure how much he cost?) We've spent big money on strikers before but I can't remember us spending out on the most important part of the team before. The biggest/ most successful Clubs start at the back. Weimann - we've had a fair few players who would run through brick walls for City but how many like him have had the skills and footballing brain to go with this level of dedication. Most be totally inspiring for the squad, especially the younger players to have Andi. (As an aside I loved JET. The most naturally talented attacker I've seen playing for City, all credit to SOD for getting the best out of him)
  11. Loved boom-boom. The brilliant saving tackle up at Carlisle is lodged away in my locker of precious City memories. Good luck Jamie.
  12. Fair play to LJ if he has made a significant impact on COD. Really hoping that he can show that he really wants to go for it on the pitch. The assist for Rowe's goal against Middlesborough was a very encouraging sign
  13. Makes I wee wen they gets they sounds wrong like that w***er Derek Robinson did ****in yurs ago.I blame 'ee for startin all this ****in "bristle" bollocks. Av a look at Geoffrey Woodruff for proper job Bristuh https://www.wyastone.co.uk/geoffrey-woodruff-entertains.html
  14. R.I.P Peter. Proper writer. Represented the best of journalism when it meant something. An educated, erudite master of the type-written football article. Like someone else above, I remember his headlines "Atyeo answers his critics". Proper bloke. Condolences to his family.
