  1. “Gosh. This is rather like giving Aunt Dahlia the push and drafting in Aunt Agatha. All does not bode well. What say you, Jeeves?” Bertie Wooster.
  2. That was by no means obvious from your original comments and there are a lot of people who won’t get this subtle a distinction.
  3. Not at all bothered. For me, rivalry is about bragging rights. As long as we are top dog, they can do relatively well. I don’t get the hatred thing at all. Personally I’d like England to win the World Cup and if the other British teams get to the finals, that’s a bonus. They’re rivals but I don’t dislike them at all. I’m half Welsh anyway, but since I was born in England and have spent 55 of my 63 years living here, I consider myself English. Similarly, I want the West Country teams generally to do well to improve the regions standing. So as long as City get to the Premier League, I’d have no problems with Rovers, Cheltenham, Yeovil, Exeter etc bettering themselves at the expense of clubs from say, the north west. I chuckle when the Gas struggle, but it causes me no angst when they do well
  4. I thought he was very balanced about LJ. Says what a good coach he is, but they fell out briefly when LJ assumed he was touting Joe Bryan to his agent. The manager he really didn’t trust seemed to be Phil Parkinson.
  5. You’re not talking about rivalry you’re talking about hatred, and it’s pretty unpleasant.
  6. Mine too. We’re all British. As far as I’m concerned our big rivals are Germany, France. Spain etc. But I don’t hate any of them as some seem to on here.
  7. Fine if you live near Ashton Gate and don’t work!

    True 235 died out in the 1950s after Hungary and Brazil started playing more like 424. By my time (1960s), 2 and 3 were right and left back, 5 and 6 were centre backs, 4 and 8 were generally midfielders, while the four upfront were two wingers (7 and 11) ant two strikers (usually 9 and 10). 9 would be a big centre forward and 10 a goal poacher. I’m generalising - I think Jimmy Greaves played number eight. So of the three “half backs” in 235, one became a midfielder and two were centre backs. Of the two “ inside forwards “ in the 5, one became a midfielder and one a striker.
  9. I've certainly seen Chilcott. Many have seen Tony Robinson.
  10. Probably best known recently as Lestrade in Sherlock.
  11. A famous actor from WSM is Rupert Graves (you’d know his face) and I’ve seen him say he’s a City fan.
  12. Seems pretty clear to me. Warnock isn’t our manager - for which, much thanks.
  13. Whoosh. You’re replying to a Cardiff fan’s comments on THEIR season!
  14. I can’t link it, but there’s a very detailed Twitter thread on our finances now by Swiss Ramble.
  15. I wonder if a manager has ever resigned from a league’s top club to voluntarily join its bottom club.
