  1. One night will hardly damage a school career... When I look back to '72 I honestly cant remember one days exam revision but I do remember the night Ashton Gate hosted England vs East Germany under 23's … the Germans won 1 -0 in front of a 20,000 crowd. Future England stars that night included, K Keegan, F Lampard, M McDonald, Mick Channon, ex Gas Liverpools Larry Lloyd, etc.. Like I said, cant remember suffering from lack of a nights school revision but can well remember going to The Gate that night in 1972 and exchanging waves with the East Germans as their coach went past us in Bedminster after the game on their way back to behind the 'Iron Curtain' . Remember feeling so sorry for them and their lack of freedom compared to us in the West despite them being first class athletes. So I say C Red if you and anyone else wishing to go can get tickets, sod school, don't let that deny the kids a possible lifetime memory, it wont harm 'em, will it? All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy (Jack Nicholson 1980)
  2. Hmm, geography not a strong point then Z ?
  3. ….stick a hook on that and I bet it'd catch trout!
  4. O'Reilly IS a character though.... an Irish cowboy builder in Fawlty Towers. :)
  5. 'Hollywood Pass' eh? bloody nonsense. Not forgetting the South African 2010 World Cup ….….. Vuvuzela! ( arrgghhh if I don't see or hear another one of them for as long as I live it'll be too f'ing soon!)
  6. Sometimes, (& we've had our fair share of 'em) ….. From top Internationals to the Downs.Leagues … Only here for the beer!
  7. Not a cliché or at all modern …. One word that's ancient but probably 'newish' to most of us came to our attention during the The Gate redevelopment... Heard a lot in the footballing world in recent years due to all the new stadium builds. It doesn't particularly bother me but apparently makes one Otiber feel sick to her stomach … (don't look @Dollymarie) . I give you - Vomitory!
  8. blimey, to think that's been laying dormer all this time.
  9. Bet if LJ spots the header, it'll get his attention for a moment or two...
  10. Not if harassing the ref gets you an automatic yellow it won't... I do think the var should be there as an aid for the ref (and maybe his assistants) to pause and take a second look at it, not to overrule the ref … his decisions should and must remain final. Some you win some you lose.. so be it.
  11. N.B. Mr Lee Johnson..... (all we are saying is Give Us Some Goals, please)
  12. Player could've passed away and is in the process of being interred…. (unlikely granted, but possible)
  13. They might though if we play our Kiwi keeper up front, all we need to do is get him on the end of a cross to feet from three or four yards out.. One touch and boom it'll be in the back of the net before he knows what's hit him!!! We need to play to our strengths!
