  1. It was pointed out on the highlights show that these games against the elite teams 'will not define our season'. When we have played the likes of Brighton, Spurs and Villa we will see how level the playing fields are. A veritable mini-league. Sadly, the days when we could compete with anyone are gone, so we must focus on the important matches.
  2. Well here we are! There's a semblance of normality at last to the weekends. But look closer: Tom at Tampa, Cam in Tom's old office, the Vegas Raiders, Washington who?, no fans for the most part and some awkward displays with no pre-season. However, just when you thought it was going to be all change this year, there are some old familiar and comforting ever-presents: It's great to have the NFL back again!!
  3. Have to agree with some comments on here that the Vixens looked awful. I will accept that the money divide between us and Chelsea is a significant factor in attracting talent, but the performance was appalling. Only a couple of seasons ago they were able to take on the best and given them a game. Not now. It looked more like a cup game between two much different levels. The home side (and the other usual suspects) are going to fight it out amongst themselves for trophies again and the rest of the division will be engaged in the struggle to avoid the drop. The growing gulf is becoming a re
  4. Might see you down there, then.
  5. Opening game of the season and plenty to ponder over, it seems. Not sure where Everton will sit in the table but they look improved on recent years. Tanya Oxtoby praised the team for the application shown and accepting it is a significantly young new squad this time around, but the signs are a little concerning. Still, lots of games left to turn the effort into results.
  6. Interesting acquisition but not unexpected as previous back-up keeper Eartha Cumings has now gone to Charlton.
  7. I went to see Keynsham v Exmouth (145 there). The club had a temperature check and hand sanitiser at the entrance; they also had a fairly long queue to work through too. I stood at the wall with a two metre distance between other spectators and didn't look in to the clubhouse. The food hut was open too. It seemed pretty consistent with the regulations. The game was not one that Keynsham managed to get much of a grip on and the visitors went into the half 2-0 up. Better in the second but the one consolation was soon cancelled by a third for Exmouth. It was great to be at an actual gam
  8. Sounds like Dr Alice Roberts (she's one of our own) in her Channel 4 series: https://www.channel4.com/programmes/britains-most-historic-towns/on-demand/68435-002 If you haven't seen it and want to know a little more about our past then it's a good programme. The Queen Square riots were a savage episode where ignorance, brutality and senselessness all combined against a backdrop of elitism. The mural of the riots on the Bath Road near the Thunderbolt was painted over, sadly. Maybe we can find another place to revive it - or even use old Colston's plinth?
  9. It might buy you a better class of misery. If I ever become rich I'll let everyone know.
  10. If the coronavirus has made us rethink things and come up with better technologies then perhaps this method of discovery will be a bigger feature in time. There was an app or summat for the Aardman statues and a Pokemon thing that was interactive with smartphones if I remember correctly. The systems are already in place, just needs the effort.
  11. Is that the Gooners' new shirt? Maybe I'm still hungry but I immediately thought of raspberry ripple.
  12. I guess this will really boil down to what the club means to the fans when they can't go to the ground and actually be part of a match. Without the active participation things will certainly be re-evaluated. Given that many will have been seriously affected by the lockdown and will now be scrutinising the bank statements with great concern.
  13. I've often wondered about bikers' leathers - why are there so many odd lumps? Now I realise what some of them are filled with...
  14. it seems reassuringly familiar, that scene of the old ground. I can recall the view of it from the terraces and it still seems like an old friend even after all the modern structures have grown up. The wall in the front of the Dolman used to be open but then a small terrace was installed along the length of the pitch. That's now all gone underneath the new seating. Also miss the old floodlights. But gosh! Is it really fifty years? Better check my pension fund...
  15. An excellent bit of work by the team! Given the restrictions that are likely to still be in place by September and on, it's a good response to cancelling the usual Doors Open Days programmes. Hopefully the weather will be kind to the bookings - which are £6 per adult and are now starting to sell out! I reckon there will be an over-demand for tickets and hopefully the organisers will consider more releases; maybe if it proves really successful they might do more on a permanent basis. Just wish I had a smartphone.
