  1. , How can the ‘Night of the Tulips’ become a vague memory? Up there with the best experience following City, on and off the pitch.
  2. Whoever has the ’Yate’ flag, hats off to them. Every televised away match, it makes an appearance in prime position. Bloke must be some form of advertising executive with his blindingly brilliant product placement. Southmead is/was an interesting one. Always had a fearsome reputation for us wimps in WoT but (fortunately) appeared mainly City in the 70’s, along with Lawerence Weston. Then did not both go over to the dark side? What caused that? Even a once staunchly red Shirehampton seemed to turn blue in the 80’s.
  3. Ah. The trials and tribulations of living North of the River. I was actually persuaded by my Rovers mates to do ballboy duties at Eastville for one game vs Reading as part of an indoctrination campaign. Massive fail I’m pleased to say, although I was shitting myself for most of that match in case any of the lads started shouting out ‘he’s a City fan’. Can also remember having a very dodgy night at Redland with me brazenly wearing my Bristol City blazer badge on a denim jacket in a Disco. Big mistake and there were 30 guys waiting for me outside the door. Lower profile in that neighbourhood from then on! Those on the South Side of the river had it easy!

    RIP Dave Fear

    RIP Dave one of life’s good guys.
  5. Met Les and his wife at my local in Shaldon a few years ago. A truly lovely couple. My only disappointment was my own performance - you know when someone looks really familiar and you can’t quite put a name to the person? Well we got talking about City - think I was wearing some form of City t shirt which he had spotted - he had (unsurprisingly) a detailed knowledge of City history, managers and players. Every story I came out with to try and impress him he trumped by a factor of 5! Wasn't until a couple of days later the penny dropped and I realised who I was speaking to. A true gent, humble and warm. Shame on me!
  6. If I was a social scientist, one might conclude that tougher sentencing combined with greater surveillance has resulted in less crime. Bit if I was an academic then I’d be left-wing, so that wouldn’t fit my PC narrative
  7. Amanda Walker Sky News America correspondence is simply stunning. Almost worth moving to America for. RedRock Washington USA
  8. Think the bird at Poole must be a right munter. She’s been flaunting herself for weeks with no bloke being remotely interested. Even laid 2 eggs to give a hint of availability but still no takers. The Rutland Water ospreys, on the other hand, are a different kettle of fish. The good news is the first chick hatched today. Been watching this pair for a few years. Gets slightly gruesome when they bring back live fish and peck them to bits while they’re still flapping around. Last year, one brought in a big carp that proceeded to slap the chicks around the nest in its death throws.
  9. Yep. The Police had no numbers and little organisation then. No escorts or segregation and freedom pretty much to do as you pleased in and outside grounds. Needed to be pretty street-wise in those days, quite a few dodgy moments has to be said. Seemed we were far from the best organised, but generally had the numbers when it mattered.
  10. Apparently in made it to Coleton Raleigh in East Devon, which is a mile or so from my partner’s house, before turning back home. The distances these birds travel in a day is amazing.
  11. In principle, not in favour of testimonials.... but for Scott genuinely think he is a worthy exception to the rule. What a brilliant idea to have it against our Dutch friends as well. Make it happen.
  12. Brighton was just awful. Brighton seemed more interested in their ground situation rather than the match result. ..and we still contrived to serve up a shite fest. Hull, disappointing but not at the same level. After fifty plus years, I can almost guarantee if we pull a big crowd whether by attraction of opposition, importance of result or reduced prices, we’ll fluff our lines. It’s our DNA.
  13. I played in the same primary school team as Jane Rodgers, the younger sister of David Rodgers, went to Sunday School with Jo Durie (who, I think we can add to our list of ‘famous’ City fans) and sat next to Robin Cousins in Biology in Secondary School. While I’m on tennis, also played tennis with Mark Sagers (then Sky, now Talksport) playing in kit given to him and signed by Andre Agassi. Basking in the glory of shared fame here!!! Nearly forgot. The pinnacle. Also had the entire City team sat on the garden wall of our house when their coach broke down one night on the way back from some away match. Have got a team picture with the entire squad having signed it somewhere in the loft.
  14. My tip would be not to bother to book your dream holiday based on any monetary value. I thought my England vs Hungary 1953 programme - a famous match - would be worth at least a few hundred. Nope, the price of a small round of drinks The only thing of any value I have is the England vs West Germany WC Final programme (original). They are fascinating records cords of a Club’s/social history though.
  15. Get yer hands off lads - she’s all mine (and she’s loaded!). Lovely jubbly.
