How does one explain the difference from the 50's

Apart from being in Division 1 {Premier} for a blink of the eyelid to being in the lowest division for a short spell, nothing much really.

 

The world has changed. Humans have walked on the moon; the music world changed with an Elvis and one can ask Alexa any question and be assured of an answer while sat anywhere on the Karzee. 

However, our team is in the same spot every year, same ground, with similar talent, albeit with different formation, running down the same wings, depressed or unhappy we aren't going up. And we sing the same song about a wee bird with a red chest, which we all get excited about.

How many people jump off an infamous bridge?

City played on the third tier for much of that decade, and were inferior to Rovers for some of it.

Now we're pretty cemented in the second tier and are chasms apart from the Fewers.

We were in the top flight for 4/5 years, thats more than many clubs have managed.

I think we were top flight for a period around the start of the 20th century, too, certainly around our sole FA Cup final appearance.

Obviously no one alive now who saw it.

When the Premier League started everyone thought it would become an elite club for the rich clubs only.

29 years later a staggering 49 clubs have played in it……but not us.

50 sounds a nice round number

 

Brentford are the 50th club to play in the  Prem, I believe.

More Canadian Club required, I think.

An old line about Dean Martin.

On seeing an advert that said “ drink Canada Dry”, he went there and he did!

Watched a documentary on him the other day where they said that the drunken bum routine was all for the camera. Sinatra was even quoted as saying he rarely saw him take a drink away from the stage.

That appears to be correct. The drink in his hand on stage was actually apple juice. Searching the internet, past, less known, supporting acts all said the same thing years after DM's death. Engelbert Humperdink joked about the same thing during his Hawaii concert in 2018.
