Parallels With 1976

Recommended Posts

Rovers were crud in 1976, and below us in the pecking order; with a small contingent of bitter, deluded, scruffily dressed oddballs for a home crowd (and an away following about four times the size), prone to telling fibs. 

Elsewhere, the country was coming to terms with a momentous referendum, referred to around these 'ere parts as "Brentry."

She flashed her shreddies in my direction, so not bad after having a crush on her nigh on 40 years ago.

Wendy James wasn't fit to lace up Debbie Harry's corset.

Can't agree. Although she looks terrible now.. in '89 she was on fire (we're talking looks, Blondie had the tunes for sure)

and we're back to Jack Hunt  :laugh:

Stop for a moment to admire Ms Harry in her prime: had this poster with the Best of Blondie album.

My first proper crush. Looking back she was trashy as hell but the time, smoking hot!

Transvision Vamp certainly sold more records than they were musically entitled to with her fronting them.

If Massengo had gone with a handlebar tache for Movember, I would say 100% we'll be promoted!

In 76 I was slim, a lightning quick forward in the suburban league and could keep going all night long.

Now Ive put a bit of weight on and haven't put a pair of football boots on in over 30 years. Still, 1 out of 3 ain't too bad!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mrs Downend does now tell me  that if I'm going to keep going  all night long it might be a good idea to invest in some incontinence pants!  :)

Sorry but for a nailed on promotion we need a No 1 hit from the Wurzels.

Ah 1976....... the long hot summer

Top music from that year (from memory - no google) included:

ABBA - Knowing me knowing you

Billy Ocean - Red Light Spells Danger

Steve Miller - Abracadabra 

Stevie Wonder - Isn’t she Lovely 

what a fantastic year that was! I remember Chew Valley Lake emptying to the level where you could see the old road into Morton appear!

I remember Football Focus (if it was called that back in 1976) ran a feature on City prior to the 1-0 victory at Carlisle in March 1976.  It showed the lads being interviewed on a fishing trip.  What is the most famous running gag about a fishing trip in a British sit-com? Yes, Uncle Bryn's fishing trip with his nephew Jason in Gavin and Stacey.  What sit-com is making a long awaited return in a Christmas special this season? You guessed it, Gavin and Stacey!! Must be an omen!!

1+9+7+6 = 23

2+0+1+9 = 12

12 is 52% of 23

52 will be my age at the end of the 2019/2020 season

Only a few years before 1976, we improved the ground massively by building the Dolman Stand. Now the ground has been renovated again.

Every stand other than the South Stand has a name, so I think it's time that it is renamed after the manager who took us to the top flight.

To quote the late great Fred Wedlock:

from the Oldest Swinger in Town....

My own Mrs R&W now admits looking back that she should have said ‘yes’ more often - all those wasted moments!!!!!!

You mean call the South Stand “The Dicks Stand”.

If he was manager and we won the Champions League he would be the king of Ashton Gate. I can envisage the chants ringing around the ground - “Wang King, Wang King, Wang King”
