  1. The coaches are not getting the best out of the players and causing friction, it seems. There are reports of Rumblings coming from AT&T. But then, with Jerry Jones in charge when has there not been? In an NFC East with little to cheer about it is especially depressing to be in such a poor shape.
  2. Went to watch Yate this weekend. Haven't been to Lodge Road for donkeys, but was pleasantly surprised at the set-up. Pity the team is not so encouraging - beaten 2-6 by a very good Poole team. They happened to have a few extra away fans that included a drummer, whom I believe would otherwise be at Pompey. Attendance was 237.
  3. Is the Patriots' a blip too? Or are we witnessing the demise of the dynasty? Shocking how limp they are looking tonight as the Niners run them out of Foxboro. And how does Todd Gurley manage to lose the game by scoring a late TD? Insane end to a game.
  4. One on a bus shelter in Whitchurch Lane, junction near Maggs Lane.
  5. Hopefully that means a dislocated knee-cap, not the entire knee - that would be a disaster if so. Her twitter seems quite optimistic so if the scans don't prove bad we could look forwards to her returning later this season. The 19-year-old had started every game thus far.
  6. Sounds like a nasty injury to Aimee Palmer. Hope it's not a serious one. Looking ahead, is this going to put more pressure on Oxtoby? After all, former coach Dave Edmondson was shown the door a while ago. Or is it the club is managing expectations and not looking to be too ambitious? It does seem a lifetime ago that the Vixens were reaching for the title and Europe.
  7. You would have seen two decent strikes and a late own goal to seal it for the Grove.
  8. Apparently the twit by Red Trousers is a load of tosh according to Marv. The money and the capability is there so he says. Maybe there will be an arena after all. <Does not hold breath>
  9. I dug up some old mapping and overlaid the present supermarket. Hope you can make out where everything is. Nailsea veterans can guide me if it's not quite right.
  10. Yes, Villa at home this Sunday. They won 1-0 at home to Sheffield United tonight - that after a 0-6 stuffing by a rampant Everton side last weekend. If the Man City/Arsenal games don't define our season, then these upcoming ones will. It would be great to see that they are 'getting themselves together' now.
  11. Getting back with Adge, no doubt. There'll be one on the bar waiting for him.
  12. Given the recent form, I feel the defeat at the Gooners is something of a significant improvement. Good to see the return of Abi Harrison after a long injury lay-off, too. Stats are one thing but don't tell the true story. Plenty of matches show a big possession bias but the scoreline told another. I don't doubt the game was one-way traffic for much of it. Ultimately, there is only one statistic. Yes, there will be a separate mini league at the bottom where the struggle to survive will be played out. Interesting to listen to Mr Lansdown on the latest interview that we know what we ar
  13. Strange to see real people in the bleachers. Not many, but real people making real noises. Sadly at AT&T it is mainly groans.
  14. Bristol's official motto: "I'll believe it when I see it." We seem to have heard this kind of story before...
  15. Another question is: how have the show ponies fared? Are there any players who can only play in front of a crowd and have since found form and performances dropping? Conversely are there any shy creatures who have blossomed without the fans breathing down their necks? I'm not sure there are any at the Gate, but elsewhere..? And do the players find themselves forming a stronger bond with their treammates now there is no scrutinty from the stands?
  16. 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.
  17. 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!!
  18. 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
  19. Might see you down there, then.
  20. 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.
  21. Interesting acquisition but not unexpected as previous back-up keeper Eartha Cumings has now gone to Charlton.
  22. 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
  23. 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?
  24. It might buy you a better class of misery. If I ever become rich I'll let everyone know.
