  1. Wish I was going. I’m stuck in a Bulgarian hospital with septicaemia, hoping that the insurance will fly me home
  2. We have also been restricted by our own wage principles. Im not trying to preach to SL about how and how much he should be spending - I’m grateful for everything he has done so far and of course we mustn’t let things spiral out of control, but when we can’t land strikers due to wages that other clubs seem prepared to pay then we are always going to be at a disadvantage.
  3. Apologies if it’s mentioned earlier in this thread guys but did Swindon play many first teamers against us at Supermarine?
  4. I watched that game in the Steam Railway pub with some Swindon mates. I couldn’t really get as animated as I would have liked....!
  5. Well that’s what he said. Believe it or not - but Swindon didn’t turn up for that final and almost all their squad were purged.
  6. A good friend of mine is a steward at the County Ground on matchdays. I did wonder how a side that looked so exciting against Sheff U could be so poor against Preston in the final. My friend told me (and he’s not the sort to lie) that immediately after the semifinal win, Power went into the dressing room celebrations and said; “congratulations for getting to the final boys. Well done. Now, if you win the final and get to the Championship, the majority of you will never kick a ball there, because you’re not good enough ......” then turned and left them in silence. No idea if it’s true, but my friend isn’t the sort to lie about things like that - and it would explain the indifferent performance at Wembley. What a chairman!!!! Thank god we have Lansdown! Shame, because Preston beat us all the time - we could have done with them being in a different division!!!
  7. Oh that’s Il Capricorno. One of the ones I like (but never have pizza though). It’s just changed hands actually and Mrs R&W and I were there last week with some of her work colleagues - including the new owner’s cousin.
  8. Surprised about Fabios - but as I said, I never have pizza. Leonardo’s has gone. That was an upstairs place in Regents Circus. It wasn’t there long and I never ate there.
  9. I must admit I don’t eat pizza when I go for an Italian meal - I tend to go for a fillet steak. I quite like the Italian restaurants around Old Town; Fabios, Il Capricorno, Carbonara, Marios - I’ve had some fine food there!
  10. I can speak French and German relatively ok. I also speak a small amount of Spanish and Russian. Not good enough to hold a conversation but ok to ask for directions, order a beer and buy stuff in a shop.
  11. I’m probably in a minority of 1 here amongst my fellow fans, but I wanted Swindon to win the playoffs THAT season - so the local derbies would continue. I actually live in Old Town and it would have been nice to be able to walk to a championship game. That Sheffield United semifinal was really entertaining. Sheffield United - now there’s an example of how fortunes can change..... i’ve played at Supermarine - nice pitch!
  12. A wonderful player, worker and team member. A huge loss last season. I really hope he recovers in time to play a part in our promotion season.........
  13. The Euiighurs live up in the north - but I get what you are saying - hence my comment about not wanting their regime. I think there is a balance to be struck and the Chinese and ourselves are the extremes when it comes to engineering projects.
  14. This is one of the drawbacks to living in a modern democracy. When I was in China 2 years ago, our guide in Shanghai was quite ‘political’ and he said ‘you westerners value your democratic system where everyone has a say, but we built Shanghai into a huge metropolis in 30 years with fully functional everything. In your west you would still be arguing over where the first stone should be laid.’ although I wouldn’t swop his regime for ours quite yet (getting close recently) he has a point.
