  1. They are applying to go into the Gloucestershire County Women’s Football League, with a separate U-18 side too. It will be a few rungs below the WSL and I dare say will not be the full professional outfit as required at the top these days.
  2. Not ITK but I did see a tweet from Man Utd Ladies in amongst the general praise - maybe that's the move? Man Utd won the race to the WSL for next season, so it could be familiar faces time. Lucy has certainly been one of the better players in the squad this past season and an international too, so not perhaps surprising that she has left. The pattern appears all too obvious that City Women are not the sort of club that can keep that sort of talent in the face of much better funded teams (the usual suspects are to be found in both genders). Shame but that's the law in this jungle. We sit awaiting the player movements in the close season here too.
  3. The Victorians used to have travelling circuses that often included some sort of 'freak show'. It strikes me that the same ethos is here in the twenty-first century with these sorts of public shows. They were divisive and ignorant in that time, pandering to certain tastes. Little changed until the light was shone on it, be it the Elephant Man or the Kyle Show...
  4. He might be if the stewards aren't careful. Be a strange one if he invaded the pitch with the rest of the Tran fans, got arrested and given a banning order.
  5. Loren has been one of the old hands at the club who has undoubtedly been vital in bringing on all the young players that have arrived this season. She recently earned her 100th cap for Wales and is perhaps the last of the old 'Smurf Army' days of the old Academy. On top of being a great team member and role model, she also happens to be a genuinely nice person.
  6. The better driver will have a good look and appreciate what is going on around them, modern electronic gizmos or not. Shoulder checks (both sides) are good practice before moving, either on the motorway or in an urban crawl. Awareness and anticipating other road users is a key component of safe motoring. Of course, the main focus is ahead as that is the normal direction of travel, moving across lanes or other hazards simply adds to the emphasis on observation. The person who says they don't need to check at 70mph is heading for a sudden and severe education. Perhaps they are a WUM. Perhaps they are a problem waiting to happen, with the Grim Reaper riding shotgun. Motorbikers are taught to use the shoulder check, but they know it as The Lifesaver - because that is what it does!
  7. Good squad, no real surprises about the selection - just a little concerned about the depth in midfield. The opener against the Jocks will be a cruncher, and we must be shortish odds for winning the competition.
  8. Seems like there might be enough support for a game! If we include the Police (assuming a full side) then perhaps it could well work as we would only need the 15. I'd be up for a runout on the pitch - the last time I was on it was 1976-77, no prizes for guessing why. So when would people prefer - midweek or weekend? If there is enough desire then let's get the ball rolling!
  9. Experts forecast that in a few decades time Bristol and Bath will meet in the middle. Perhaps the citizens of the Roman city want to get nearer the seaside?
  10. Niners select Ohio State DE Nick Bosa. He doesn't do pink.
  11. Cards look to a QB to replace the incumbent Josh Rosen. Kyler Murray, the first to wear a pink outfit tonight.
  12. Nashville is looking, er, colourful tonight. The Commissioner is about to start the clock - it's Draft Time! Wonder who will have the broadest smile, or the smile that says it's Plan B.
  13. Always struck me how often an ambulance has to work its way through the traffic after the whistle. Are they doing it for training?
  14. A touch of the Pumpidos, I fancy.
  15. Hmm, £¾ million for some furniture or art? That puts Ikea into the shade. Or you could buy it and try to outrun the Bloodhound Project. Get a shed at Avonmouth and really hack them off...
