  1. SL told us not to get too attached to players, and generally I don't, but Fammy is not only a good player but an endearing character who has earned the affection of the fans. I'd rather not have 8 different players each season and a team we can hardly identify with, so imo characters like Fammy who have proved their worth should be kept if possible. We might replace with better but a good chance we wouldn't so go all out to keep him within reason.
  2. Yep, Brownhill was often in poor form in the months before he left and a smattering of goals didn't mask that afaic. It may have been his mind was elsewhere knowing a move was in the offing, either way his performances were noticeably below his previous standards. Good for Josh that he's acclimatised so well to PL football - he's take his chance superbly.
  3. I can't remember anyone saying that. I've seen several posters saying 'he's not the Messiah', when nobody has said he would be. Nobody I've seen has said he would get us dominating games week in week out either - that would be a ridiculous expectation to put on one player. He showed he had matured in to a consistent player with regular games at Coventry, at a level below, and if he could take that sort of form and consistency into Championship football he would definitely be an asset to us. Many of us remain keen to see if he could do just that because we're lacking creative, co
  4. Since signing for City he's made 19 apps. for us - plus 34 out on loan - according to wiki. So 53 appearances overall. After a very successful loan last season it's very likely he'd have been a regular this season, along with Williams, but for injury. That seemed to be what Holden had in mind so it's fair to say that those at the club do rate him as good enough.
  5. Yet you seem to have your own conspiracy theory about Walsh, Tone - that 'he just wants out'. Nothing to back that up., all we know is that, no doubt to the huge frustration of all involved, he remains injured. Whether he's good enough, from what we've seen here and at Coventry, is of course a matter of opinion. I happen to think he almost certainly is, and so does Holden unless he was fibbing when he made a big thing that he planned for Walsh to play a big part for us this season.
  6. The weather is far too good for them to be from that game - they'll be from the 0-0 draw in 75/76. Seen the bottom photo many times, but never seen the boy on the bench holding the banner before. He must be in his 50's now.
  7. Sorry to 'keep on', but any joy on the back cover programme pic. 77/78? @Big Al, @Moments of Pleasure, anyone?
  8. Is it possible to just put the back cover on?
  9. You could be right. Never mind doubling his tally today, I'm looking for a hat trick.
  10. Understand that but you called Wells 'prolific' and I see this as a misconception. He doesn't score any more than Fammy at Championship level yet I rarely hear Fammy described as prolific. I view Wells as overrated and Fammy underrated - neither is anything special at this level but Fammy offers more overall to the team than Wells imo.
  11. Fammy is also prolific then - the 2 players have very similar goalscoring records at Championship level.
  12. Not liking the thread is one thing. Telling posters off in an attempt to impose your own boundaries and sensitivities on others is quite another.
  13. From @Offside's front cover above looks like 77/78.
  14. @Lanterne Rouge has confirmed there was another picture of fans on the back cover, hopefully someone who's got a programme from that season can put that picture up here.
  15. Thanks. I remember that one but it was a closer up picture of fans I had in mind (or certainly a different one as the people I knew aren't on this one) Was there a picture of fans on the back cover as well?
  16. Not good news today on young Cam Pring We're told he's out with a nasty torn hamstring No problems at Pompey, he was injury free But he's knackered after training with BCFC A farce to rival Carry On Camping!
  17. I remember that cover photo, and recognised a few on it at the time. Wonder how many of them are still going down the Gate? Interested to see it again if you, or someone else - @BigAl&Toby? - could put the full picture up?
  18. Always remember the bloke who took the money in the corridor - name escapes me but quite a character. I never thought he liked me very much!!
  19. One of my first experiences of Bristol nightlife. Met up with some schoolmates in Mad Harry's to go to the Hofbrauhaus one night - all underage, but we got in no problem. Really enjoyed ourselves - in fact so much so we all ended up flat out on the pavement the moment we got outside! Went to the lunchtime stripper session not long after - an eye opener indeed - and got (roughly) chucked out for 'overdoing things' again!
  20. Went to Vicky's a few times - most memorably to finish off my stag night pub crawl. Well, actually I don't remember that much about it! Always an unusual woman taking money at the door iirc, she must have been in her '70's with long hair dyed black - always wondered if it was Vicky herself?
  21. Remember Plymouth home followed by Portsmouth away the next day in the mid 70's. Football was always first and foremost entertainment for the masses so more games were played at holiday times when fans were able to get out and watch in the biggest numbers possible. Players have always said they like to play games (not on consecutive days very often, granted) rather than train, saying that several hours training was often just as arduous as playing a match. Maybe it's not these days?
  22. Thanks @Rooster. Watched the whole 11+ minutes. Very funny - how I miss entertainment like Benny Hill. Maybe just my sense of humour but apart from 'Not going out' the other night - a really funny episode I thought - there's almost nothing on TV that makes me laugh these days.
