  1. Annoying that Lineker believes it necessary to bore the public with his political views but he's good at his job, if massively overpaid like all the BBC's so called 'stars'. I don't watch MOTD anymore and I'd like to think the days of the BBC licence fee are numbered; I certainly resent paying it these days.
  2. Plus railings to get to that wall ( perhaps we didn't need to go over any but we did anyway!) and jumping over more railings after crossing the road to get into the park. First went to the Nova in about '76 and apart from the dartboard and fruit machine going, it hasn't changed. Even still got a bottle of promotion ale behind the bar. Of all the pubs I've been to in Bristol over the years it's the least changed, and long may it stay that way!
  3. Many years ago it was the Plume and/or the Nova Scotia followed by the assault course to the ground. These days it's still the Nova, but after the match rather than before - completely lost interest in drinking before the game.
  4. Ted's grin would be so wide at the moment it would never fit on the screen!
  5. Good to see enthusiasm for starting a match day thread early - Peg can always add her more in-depth version a bit later in the day. To put it in an OTIB historical context there was a time when no such keen competition for initiating the match thread existed - hence some of us persuading Havanatopia to take it on regularly, which he did with such an unexpectedly quirky gusto it quickly became a weekly must read on it's own. However his match thread duties faltered alarmingly due to exhausting prolonged extra 'lie ins' brought on by an extended honeymoon period (still going strong as far as we know, the fellow has enviable stamina) and he couldn't fit in both arduous tasks first thing in the morning to the satisfaction of all concerned, Something had to give, and it certainly wasn't going to be Havana's 'lie in', so a new reliable regular thread starter was needed. Peg enthusiastically grabbed Havana's baton and that's where things happily stand today.
  6. I'm sure we all feel every sympathy every time we hear these sad stories but a minutes applause at a game is another thing altogether. There was a time last season when it seemed to be happening every week. I would feel obliged to join in applause for the Stoke fan, but I'd prefer it if such an accolade was not happening in the first place. The increasing trend over recent seasons of paying such a tribute to individual fans, who sadly die every week, has become too much now imo.
  7. Agreed, had this discussion above. The player should have no say whatsoever - he's either passed 100% fit by a doctor, and can play, or he isn't, and immediately becomes unavailable for selection. The idea BCFC, or the Hungarian manager, would pander to a players (quite natural) wishes to play for his country if he's not 100% recovered from an injury that has seen him miss club matches is ridiculous and no doubt contrary to any agreement between BCFC and Hungary when they allowed him to go. National associations have the power to force clubs to release players they deem unfit so they themselves can validate that is the case but it works the other way round too - if he is found not fit on arrival the country must not play him, and in normal circumstances would send him back to continue treatment. Any decision must be totally removed from the player himself, however much it might piss him off! It sounds like, at the very least, Nagy was not 100%, and playing may have set back his recovery. I'd expect BCFC to be very upset with Hungary, and quite possibly the player himself, if that proves to be the case, and rightly so in both cases imo.
  8. I hope it's kept on the main forum. It's one of the most actively followed threads on here at the moment (6,397 views as things stand would seem to support that) and many will forget about it on non footy which most probably rarely visit. Keep the updates coming TR - all hoping for a happy outcome.
  9. Fans are motivated to play for amateur teams for no reward on sloping, rutted pitches on a bitterly cold Sunday morning and give it everything due to love of the game, competitive spirit, and a determination not to let down their team mates and their club. Please stop making excuses for highly paid professionals who choose not to do the same - there are none imo.
  10. Very sensible but I thought you were going to really boost their coffers? Even halves all round should help though with the sheer size of your gang!
  11. So you should be, hope he has a good game!
  12. I thought you and your many mates were meeting up at the Grain Barge today Rog?
  13. Really not interested in seeing all those in black track suits at the sides in the official team photo.. Far too many people included in total - let's at least have a separate photo limited to just the playing squad and 3 main coaches.
