  1. Off to a Toolstation game this afto. Not sure which at the moment - might depend on how long it takes for me to guzzle me grub.
  2. I understand the starting XI for Scotland have relatively few caps between them - essentially a rookie team - so perhaps it's not such a shock. Still pretty grim for the Jocks, though, as witnessed by the torrents on social media. I heard on the radio that some fans were planning to go to France to watch the Women's World Cup, rather than the men.
  3. Really enjoyed the game - it went by so quickly. Mind you, I am used to clinging on most times I'm at the Gate, so it's a pleasant change. Two good teams playing some high speed and skilled football (again, perhaps a marked change to the norm) made for a great occasion. Okay, it was a friendly and not a proper qualifier, but the passion was clearly on show from all the players. Well worth being there tonight. I hope (assume) that the FA suits are impressed and will look kindly on another such night for our Lions.
  4. Think he may have lost his bearings and thought the post was further behind him, expecting the ball to go wide or over. But he changed his opinion as the ball swung in and ended up flapping. Shame, but the keeper's job is to keep the ball out of the net.
  5. Don't know if this has been covered elsewhere, but North Ferriby United have been officially wound up yesterday. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/47585863 Shame that a 'little' club has gone this way and all over a sum of less than £8k - the size of which some pro clubs will get through in prawn sandwiches of a matchday.
  6. Terribly ironic that a man who has, perhaps almost single-handedly, pushed the medical aspects of F1 has departed at such a young age. Without his work we may well have had many more seriously injured or killed drivers along the way. Also so sad that it happened at the start of the new season.
  7. Really? Didn't expect that. I don't know if the Browns are a fully completed side just yet, but perhaps putting it out there for all to recognise. The question is whether OBJ jumped or was pushed.
  8. Another chance to see the programme about Concorde's history, particularly with reference to our new Bristol Aerospace museum. BBC4 tonight 8-9pm.
  9. I was there too, in the old East End bouncing around like a loon. Is it really 29 years ago? Blige...
  10. Important not to forget that this is a warm-up tournament for the forthcoming World Cup this summer in France. Good to see that we can give such opponents a game, but the real deal is to come. Hopefully we can work out some of the slow starting that was evident and perform from the first whistle. Incidentally, England's fist match is on 9th June - against the Auld Enemy.
  11. Seems Life is what he made it. Agree with the under-rated.

    A Pink Lady or Granny Smith? And whilst I'm here, surely a mention for the chimps' tea parties at half time.
  13. Some dealers have the lower end of the market in mind and have a selection of them out of popular view. Keep an eye out for sites as you travel around and give the interweb a good bash. Might even find a decent one in Winterstoke Road!
  14. Nice job, Phantom. Not sure I can dash over there in time, but I'll give it a try. Maybe a chance to combine it with a visit to aerospace Bristol?
  15. Yup, the turnpike house was a gated entrance to the city's south west. The Ashmead map of 1828 shows a sturdy barrier across the road in front of the house shown above, with two separate gates. At that time almost the whole of the area around here was open and undeveloped.
