    That was a lucky escape! I nearly got sucked into a social whirlpool there, diverted from my lofty ideals into a life of debauchery! The flesh-pots of West London have been cheated of another victim! Eve has proffered the apple and Adam has slung it straight back at her!"

  1. 2 poor sides, one fighting for their lives the other 2 points from the last available 15. Don't think it will be one for the purists , just hope that we show a bit of fight and determination and don't get blown away by their predictable all round aggression. Hoping for a draw but fear the worse. This season has been a complete non event.
  2. Barnsley are the epitome of bang average, I couldn't name one of their players yet their manager has produced a team greater than the sum of their parts. As others have said it is not footballing ability we lack but ,organization, attitude and desire. I am hopeful that NP, an experienced manager knows what is required rather than the last 5 years of haphazard recruitment with players being discarded at an alarming rate.
  3. Those were the days. These threads come up as regularly as Norman Wisdom' s Blackburn connection but in fairness still worth a read. https://www.otib.co.uk/index.php?/topic/184345-wanted-your-memorys-of-playing-nottingham-forest-in-1989/
  4. R.I.P Prince Philip. 1 run short of his century, a remarkable innings. It's a strange feeling when a figure who has been present your entire life passes away. Imagine its the same for all of us on this thread. I don't know that we've got many 100 year old users.
  5. A wide variety of accusations are levelled at accountant managers, ranging from short-termism, a lack of interest in long-term investment, a penny-pinching attitude and, above all, an unwillingness to take risks. The logic is flawless. Accountants are trained from the start to apply the principle of prudence to company accounts so they will be equally cautious when they become managers. The trouble with this argument is that there is no evidence for it. https://www.accountancyage.com/1997/10/17/the-myth-of-the-cautious-manager/
  6. LJ said judge me after 4 transfer windows now we have Big Nige saying something similar, it really is all smoke and mirrors. Most championship players are of a very similar standard ,the trick seems to be to play them in their best positions and for the sum of the team to be greater than the parts. Look at our play off team not exactly galaticos but we were very effective. NP has the experience to do this and I hope the remainder of the season irrespective of results he decides on how we should play and those who don't match up are shown the door, it is not a chicken or egg s
  7. What with our poor run of home form and that is being generous perhaps we should take heart from this :- Having lost 16 times in a row to Jimmy Connors, Vitas Gerulaitis finally triumphed and offered his reason as to why he didn't lose: "Nobody beats Vitas Gerulaitis 17 times in a row." Or hopefully we can all take solace from these words of wisdom It's quite clear that Virginia Wade is thriving on the pressure now that the pressure on her to do well is off."
  8. Bobby Charlton - for a time arguably the most famous footballer in the world ,saw that goal against Mexico in the 66 world cup live. Lasting memory sat next to 2 Mexicans wearing sombreros in the cheap seats. Fred Truman turned up at a local charity cricket match ,asked for his autograph he refused ,miserable sod , found out later he made it a point never to sign for anyone. Not a fan of rugby so I'll go for Jimmy Greaves or Dave Mckay (attended this match)
  9. No she went by plane My wife’s band went on tour in South East Asia’ ~ ‘Singapore?’ ~ ‘Yes, and the bassist’s rubbish too
  10. Surely then they should just pass to the opposition full back.
  11. As alluded to by NTTDS Norman Wisdom was big in Albania and not a lot of people can say that, In 2001, with the England team playing Albania in Tirana, Wisdom's appearance at the training ground overshadowed that of David Beckham. He appeared on the pitch before the start of the Albania v England match wearing a half-Albanian and half-English football shirt. He was well received by the crowd, especially when he performed one of his trademark trips on his way out to the centre circle. In 1995 Wisdom was made an honorary citizen of Tirana. (Not a fan myself but one does what one
  12. Perhaps someone could organise a poll ,I know how I'd vote
  13. Blimey hadn't thought of that. You maybe on to something here, who would have thought a full time professional manager has a different perspective to us OTIB experts . What ever next, you surely aren't suggesting that each matchday thread isn't essential reading for our manager to find out where we are going wrong and how to correct it.
  14. Do try and keep up!. Blackburn away is the catalyst for Norman Wisdom, banned Norman Wisdom films and the Talking pictures Tv channel. Also 4,000 holes in the road mentioned in The Day in the Life song on the Beatles Sgt Pepper Album. Happens every visit ,you could set your watch by it.
