  1. The poster hates Chris Lines, and wanted a thread about a podcast featuring Lines removed from the Rovers section of the forum. Being childish, he created two posts stating that he was doing podcasts with Matty Taylor and Tyrone Mings. He doesn't do podcasts, and was just miffed and acting like an idiot because the Chris Lines thread wasn't removed. He's done disruptive stuff before when Chris Lines is mentioned - no idea why he's got such a downer on him.
  2. Sincere condolences on your loss. My late Father introduced me to football, and it creates a very special bond, sharing the excitement, disappointment, ups and downs. Glad that you have so many happy memories to look back on and treasure in the future. Holding positive thoughts for Mrs BT. x
  3. Both clubs would be good subject matter for an Amazon documentary next season. All or Nothing - A Tale of Two Bristols (aka A Tale of Two Titties)
  4. Thanks for the hospitality! At least we've finally been put out of our misery - this season seems to have gone on forever. I've suffered every game, and will watch the final 3 - it's what we do, isn't it?
  5. That's a horrible situation. Unfortunately, by the time someone decides to leave a relationship, they've already checked out emotionally - often because they've got somebody else lined up, but very rarely admit it. (I've got the t-shirt). Very tough for the one left behind, you've had all this come as a shock, plus the worry about your daughter. Do you think your wife would lie about how the bruise came about? I don't know your daughter's age, or if she could be coerced into covering up how it happened. It's early days, you must allow yourself to grieve for the relationship - you'll
  6. George Best - in his twilight years at Fulham, but you could still see what he had in his locker. Sublime. Seve Ballesteros - PGA at Wentworth - feel very privileged to have seen him playing live. Tiger Woods - Matchplay at Wentworth and The Open at Turnberry Watched him warming up on the range as well, an absolute machine.
  7. Sorry to hear that, puts some things in perspective - hope you get sorted soon.
  8. I watched the Roman Kemp documentary, "Our Silent Emergency", on BBC One last night, focusing on the high number of young men who commit suicide. Heartbreaking to hear from those who had lost a dear friend or loved one. I thought that it was a brave choice of topic, as suicide is still very much a taboo subject in ordinary conversation. It's available on i-Player if anybody is interested.
  9. Somebody upstairs started to stick their nose in a bit too much (not Wael)
  10. The mighty Tisdale's mistake was not checking that he'd be allowed to pick the team without any interference. Barton has been more savvy.
  11. True - I was just having a bit of fun with the picture.
  12. I see you've also gone for somebody who is a perfect role model for the youngsters.
  13. To be fair, I would imagine that a lot of clubs in their position would probably do the same. It's not their fault that the referee made a strange decision, the pitch inspection was at 12 o'clock so it's not like either of the managers would have been there getting in his ear.
  14. Heard that one of the medium bosses was trying to tinker with team selection.
  15. We've had 3 key players come back from injury, and got a rid of a manager who seemed to have lot the plot (although he may well have had reasons for that), and our opponents would have been fielding a weakened team - so no reason not to want to play. We will have Tuesday night games every week into April now, assuming there are no further postponements. I think the majority of teams just want to keep playing now, as most have been affected by having matches called off due to Covid. Hoping that we can all be back in the stadiums for next season.
  16. The covers were put on the pitch after the game on Tuesday night. When the covers were removed today, there was one small area of the pitch which was frozen - portable heaters were put around this area, which resolved the problem. There is a video of a groundsman inserting a probe in the ground, you can see that the ground is not frozen and the soil temperature is above freezing. Once the game had been called off, Rovers suggested that it could be played tomorrow, EFL were fine with this, it just needed Swindon to agree - but apparently they cannot travel to Bristol tomorrow (which is their
  17. No more random than your 4 players who were on the receiving end last season.
  18. Really - I presume you know the person who sent it then? Or maybe you're making an ill informed assumption. The "message" wasn't sent from within the UK. Over the last few months there has been an increase in racial abuse via social media, directed at black footballers who are being targeted by ignorant individuals from a handful of countries. Probably the same countries who get away with abusing black players at international matches.
  19. Pitch a tent on the lawn, get a portal-oo installed on the drive. Run an extension lead to the tent to make sure I get the big screen experience via the 14" portable TV - don't forget to tune into Babestation at half-time. Remove the top from the bottle of Fanta 24 hours before kick-off, so that it's authentically flat, and order in some out of date crisps. Good to go!
  20. I saw it on the BBC News channel, and enjoyed it. For some reason I thought that it was going to be a series, but obviously not.
  21. He kept MK up, the following season there were a lot of injuries, including the two main strikers. I was surprised that, given those circumstances, he wasn't given a bit more time, but you never can tell with football.
  22. From the CEO's interview today, I don't think it will be another Garner-type. Tisdale being appointed wouldn't surprise me - he lives in Bath, so no major upheaval for him re. family etc, and he fits the club's brief fairly well. Maybe he'll bring Andy Tilson in on the coaching staff, as they worked together at Exeter, and our defence needs sorting out.
  23. I don't think you need to lose any sleep - never going to happen.
  24. Not always! I think it was after the play-off game - a group of Gasheads were walking up a lane near the ground, and an old lady stepped out of her back gate and belted one of them around the head with a frying pan. Has to be one of the strangest "weapons" used in fv.
