  1. I'll give you the Locarno's starry ceiling was a thing of beauty but never had time much to look at it given the requirement to constantly scan for thuggish bouncers who took delight in bouncing folks down the concrete stairs......for no reason whatsoever..... Kings I wouldn't know (never had the guts or Mac to go in) - more an Arts Centre or Arnolfini flicks watcher, me....
  2. I was right behind the goal at the Open End and as happened in those days the crowd was chatting with the keeper. My recollection is virtually nothing happened, there were large passages of play where one could vaguely see the outlines of figures toward the centre of the pitch apparently running around aimlessly. The only thing of note was the collective cries of "WTF" shortly before halftime when we all ducked as this orange object flashed our way. The ref and keeper had a conflab where the ref confirmed he switched balls about 25 minutes earlier and nobody at the Open End had a scooby t
  3. 'The Ram' - I recall it lasted a few seasons. There were also the 'odd shaped' programmes which I've in my collection in the attic. Man City's was square and later 'landscape' & didn't Norwich's programme have an odd shape for a short time?
  4. Perhaps he said some Gas player was a 'josher', as in no way could the ridiculing joker be a professional footballer?
  5. I can only reference those from the 70's (my teenage years) where Bristol's pubs and clubs we're dark, dingy, dirty, dilapidated and left one feeling like needing a long scrub in the bath having visited. A bit like experiencing Eastville, Twerton or The House of Tents....
  6. 3 goals in 64 league appearances and scored only in Div 2. Reason enough.
  7. Not when there were vouchers to collect, you're stood on the Open End, it's ****ing down and by the time you get home the contents of the pockets of your jeans is papier mache.
  8. The payment system was used as an illustration as to why things fail, that City's system is anything but City's and why it is never wholly within their control. With your experience you'll appreciate that queuing systems operate with similar parameters, often set to milliseconds. If the system checks you are still there or attempts to link for the call and doesn't receive a feedback response it can default to thinking you've left the queue. Could be the various VoIP settings down the chain hold (or segment) calls longer than that of the queuing system. From the systems I've installed the
  9. Plus Ca change, but before letting the club have both barrels there are some fundamental IT concepts folks need to grasp. For one the club (like most entities) doesn't have a single system, they'll operate a modular system (front end access, Several DBase, Payment Module, Allocation & Updating Module, Comms module) some of which will be bespoke and owned by City, others of which are external. I know from bitter experience there are 'optimal' ways in which to interface with the club (and what you assume may be the fastest isn't always.) It's also meaningless saying I have a 'X' ki
  10. With operating losses topping £30m a season for mid-table stasis, I think those who need to know realise WeeLee's lasting legacy.
  11. Yeah, because like Pitman you buy a quality 'box striker' and then proceed to play him out wide else isolated upfront on his own with absolutely ZERO service..... And despite the above the stats bear you out - with us he only notched 51 times in 128 appearances. - Jeez compared to what we've had since that's woeful.....
  12. Like nearly all our ex-managers it's time to forget WeeLee. When next his name crops up, like SoD, Coppell, Lousy Pint or Benny, the response MUST be: "Who?"
  13. Why, that's nearer than where he is now? I understand Timbuktu United (Reserves) are looking for players and that would be a far better fit.....
  14. If he's working under/with somebody that'll be a nightmare scenario. With WeeLee it's his way or the highway, no matter how correct or talented his critic might be. Napoleon Complex, as with his father that's his signal weakness. You have been warned. PS - don't fall for the BS or gimmicks. Drones and grass measuring are pointless if you can't implement the basics.
  15. I recall on the terrace we'd heard some Sky stat that it was the most one sided first 45 they'd ever covered. Restart, when we at last got into their half we started singing to that effect..... We're in you half, we're in your half.......we are in your half.....
