    In the past often seen in Stringfellows handing out signed photos
    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. 321, Ted Rogers Dusty Bin. the late 70's early 80's was a zenith for Yorkshire TV. Anyone remember a programme called the Indoor league with Fred Trueman, pub games and TV was never a match made in heaven and watching the final of a shove ha'penny competition was unsurprisingly never the ratings winner they anticipated.
  2. It's all very well pandering to the cider drinking types who frequent the 3 Lions what about the artisan green, climate activists who frequent the Flip Vegan Deli and Cafe on North street until they have their chance to meet and greet DH I shall withhold judgement.
  3. Nail on the head. Hammer home to the players we have a defined high energy style of play and if they can't fit into that system they are surplus to requirements.
  4. He started his career at a club called Dandy Town Hornets is there a better name in football ?
  5. Oh I'm sorry, is this a five minute argument, or the full half hour?
  6. In its literal sense, bourgeois in Old French (burgeis, borjois) means "town dweller". However the ex Russian striker Anton Chekhov in a moment of rare lucidity said "There is nothing more vulgar than a petty bourgeois life with its halfpence, its victuals, its futile talk, and its useless conventional virtue." I don't think any of us can argue with that.
  7. Good point well made but surely those pesky pedants would have held their head in their hands over the spelling of satellite. I align with the more anarchic approach to grammar and have no time for such petty bourgeois attitudes. Pedants Out
  8. You cannot be Sirius. (one for the astronomer's )
  9. In my view football took a turn for the worse when we lost the Corinthian spirit :- if only modern teams behave liked the Corinthians used to do, back in the 1900s. They were the totally amateur, public-school, Oxbridge team that put fair play and moral values above such sordid, vulgar things as winning. They never argued with the ref or entered any competition where there was a prize. If by chance the other team lost a man, either sent off or through injury, they immediately and voluntarily sent off one of their own men, just to keep things even.'
  10. Enoch Showunmi's goal against Scunthorpe for some reason sticks in my mind.that and the previously mentioned Millwall game .
  11. "Was a hot afternoon, the last day of June ,the sun was a demon." How's that to get the ball rolling
  12. " Not in my case, average in training and worse during matches, have to say it was never a good idea to meet up at a pub.
  13. Anyone who can name City players from the turn of the last century off the top of their head surely deserves a blue plaque on their house.
  14. Collecting football programmes is definitely a generational divide, us old boys use to lovingly buy "interesting " programmes store away in shoe boxes whilst dreaming of the fortune which would materialise when sold in later life as they appreciated in value and rarity. Having said that had all the Beatles singles but turned those into ashtrays at the behest of Blue Peter.
