  1. Perhaps it's local Jersey dialect?
  2. At the time of his injury Super Bob had scored 27 in 37 League games. 34 in all competitions, including 5 goals in 7 FA Cup games. Not sure how many games he had missed up til then, or exactly how many to go, but with the form he was in he must have been on course to challenge Don Clark's all time City record of 36 in 46-47. In fact he may have only been a few away because it's not clear if Clark's total is League goals only or all competitions. No doubt at all that hamstring injury cost us the title.
  3. City's promotion season of 75-76 coincided with my 'A' Levels, unfortunate in a way because I was far more interested in following City home & away than school work and revising. One of the perks of being in the 6th form was occasional lectures from local people of note. It was announced one week that the lecture was to be given by local TV personality Roger Malone and we could hand in questions to be put to him after he'd finished. I can't remember much about the talk - it was more about his life and career than City/Rovers but went down well iirc - but I do remember my question. "How would you compare the respective qualities of John Atyeo ( who I never saw) John Galley ( my first City CF) and Paul Cheesley ( rapidly improving and playing brilliantly that season, and very much my hero at the time) and do you think Cheesley will emulate Atyeo and ever play for England?" His insight would have been interesting ( and made this a better story) but unfortunately I'll never know because my question wasn't chosen!! Also saw RM in Rediffusion, Blackboy Hill once and the way he was talking amiably at length to the counter staff he came over as a good bloke. I did feel obliged to join in with the, 'we all agree...' towards him stuck up in the gantry box that time we were all on the pitch celebrating at the end of the season though.
  4. Sounds like the 4-1 evening game at AG in April '90 when Super Bob got injured after scoring a hat trick (?) and missed the run in to the end of the season.
  5. Not missing football - as things stand I'm treating this break as the close season. As for OTIB, hope the more amusing and light hearted posters will continue to post regularly, and those not normally of that mindset will make an effort to be so. No end of websites to go on and be depressed, it would be great if we all try to ensure (as far as possible) that OTIB isn't one of them. Not surprisingly quiet on here though - a good time for those who have never started a thread to rack their brains and break their duck.
  6. Yep, and we had to adapt the traditional West Brom song for a while. 'Oh, I do like to stroll along the prom, prom, prom, when the brass band plays **** off West Brom - apart from SuperBob'
  7. Many of us will remember the chants SuperCheese SuperMann and later Bob Bob Super Bob..... Super Bobby Taylor and 'Super' has been used for other players' chants since. SuperMann, with a nod to Clark Kent is understandable but I'm pretty sure SuperCheese came first. 'Super' is hardly a word or exclamation you'd associate being used by your average football fan, and neither was it in the 70's, 80's and 90's when these heroes wore the Red shirt. It might be thought of, then as now, as either a word used by absurd Hooray Henry's, or just a bit naff. It 'fits' the chants, but so do other words, so of all the descriptive words that could have been chosen to hail our heroes, why would the seething, cussing and anything but posh denizens of the EE, with all it's F-word chants, be content shouting out the namby pamby 'Super'? An intriguing matter many will have thoughts on I'm sure, but especially interested in the views of @Super.
  8. Could you somehow be mixing it up with this? Easily done!
  9. Agreed. Always wanted City to rebuild AG rather than move to Ashton Vale but the lack of red and BCFC identity is the one major disappointment, and one I didn't foresee at all.
  10. No mentions for New Manager? Hard to imagine what the great Rob Elstob will make of this.
  11. Interesting to know how many have not renewed - like many others I suspect I forgot all about it. Prices have gone up - quite considerably in my case - from the initial prices for existing STH's so clearly no extended deadlines. Hard to believe really.
  12. No doubt he was quite philosophical about it.
  13. Same here. One of life's pleasures afaic. is a pint of real ale in a pub but I'm really not interested in drinking at home. As soon as the pubs reopen I'll be straight down the Nova Scotia but until that joyous day I'll probably be teetotal.
  14. An erstwhile friend of mine from Bristol moved up to London in '77 and happened to share a house in Whitechapel with Kate Bush when she was on the brink of becoming famous. His claim to fame for many years. Like just about everyone else, I should imagine, I thought she was beguiling when Wuthering Heights came out - as did my then new girlfriend (now my wife) and one of the first presents I bought her was a Kate Bush badge from Focus in Clifton, which she's still got.
  15. The 'lad' was actually a lady. Pretty sure she's having a lengthy break from OTIB.
