  1. The bloody speakers hardly ever work properly, so this bloke must have ears like a bat if he heard something.
  2. To make it really authentic, I'm buying 5,000, with the proviso that they are placed outside the gates.
  3. Not condoning violence at all, but I have to confess that there were a couple of occasions when I was relieved to see our "nutters" appear over the horizon.
  4. I don't think so, the only ref I can remember watching Rovers is Lee Probert, that might be because he used to train with the players.
  5. Not guilty - it's a "Yes" from me. Amazed to learn that he hadn't had one.
  6. I passed a football to Marcus Stewart at Wembley. My son was selected to play on the pitch in a pre-match competition before our play-off game with Huddersfield, and I was allowed to stand pitchside and watch. Before it finished, the players came out to warm up, and a ball being passed between Stewart and Gareth Taylor went astray and landed at my feet, I did a nice little side-footed pass to Stewie, and was rewarded with "Cheers luv". Had Nigel Mansell do that thing where somebody taps you on the shoulder from behind, then moves to the other side, so they're not there when you look ar
  7. That put me off too - not having a go at your fans, as it's one bloke saying it, just sickened me as an animal lover. (Same goes for people injuring horses too, in case anybody's wondering)
  8. Just finished reading his book, my first thought was, what a lovely bloke he is - I found it quite an emotional read, given his current state of health. Very honest account of his career, such a shame his naivety was taken advantage of with regard to contracts, there was no bitterness about this (unlike other footballer biographies I've read), he just wishes he'd been a bit wiser back then. He is obviously thought very highly of by a lot of people within the game, given the names who have kept in touch with him, and stepped in to support his fund raising. Having read his story, I'm glad
  9. Bought this recently, need to move it up my TBR pile. Best wishes to Chris and his family at this difficult time.
  10. Wishing Buster a speedy recovery - I remember him well from the "old" days, a real character.
  11. Went to that match with my Dad, it was just after the start of the season, and we were desperate for a football fix. After the game, we were stuck in traffic - I think it was along Coronation Road - with fans battling amongst the cars, dustbins being thrown, along with anything else people could get their hands on. Luckily our car remained unscathed. I believe it was the son of John Charles who was amongst those arrested.
  12. Loved it - used to go to Eastville and Swindon with my parents, then in later years to Poole with my husband, if we were on holiday in that area. Great times.
  13. What about the late Ivan Mauger?
  14. No, strangely the "unnamed barman" saw her leave the pub, punch a horse outside, and then saw her back inside the pub finishing her drink - yet the CCTV didn't pick up a trace of her!
  15. He is called Brian, so I can understand the confusion regarding who he is. He's an old Tote Ender, I think he's on Twitter as Tote End Brian (or something similar) - I don't know him personally. Brian Seymour Smith used to post on there under his own name. Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right - happy days!
  16. It certainly isn't Brian Seymour Smith.
  17. The cars parked behind the goal at Stamford Bridge during matches always fascinated me.
  18. Surprised that nobody's mentioned the mid-week FA Cup replay at Elland Road in the 1970's. During the 3 day week, so was played in the afternoon I believe. Leeds were top of the old Division One, and I remember that Donnie Gillies had his picture on the front of The Times the following day. Surely that must have been a memorable day out?
  19. I wondered if the brothers now have more individual financial autonomy, following the passing of their father last month.
