  1. Can we please bring back downvotes just for using the term "bang average"?
  2. Cameron Dummigan came on as a sub and scored the 4th goal in Dundalk's 4-0 win on Friday night.
  3. And I thought it was a unique look. Bah humbug.
  4. O'Grady held back in the box. Nowt given. Ref bokkled it.
  5. O'Grady on for Afolayan. I doubt we can score a winner now.
  6. Sounds like it. Big miss for Tuesday if so.
  7. Missilou on for Baxter. Injury? That's a blow.
  8. Cambridge fans sound a bit pissed off with the ref. Actually, very pissed off. Makes a change.
  9. With Swindon equalising at Carlisle, we're 5 points off the play offs. Crazy, this League.
  10. To me, that's a 4-3-3 that becomes a 4-5-1. It's a pretty attacking starting X1, but not so much on the bench; two left backs, two defensive midfielders, a winger and a striker. You go with what you've got, obviously, but it looks like Benteke and Vera aren't fancied.
  11. Hide behind the sofa and keep the kids away . It's for their own good. A bit of messing about this morning proves that a hairy face grows quicker than a hairy head. The three colours, taken from a Latics scarf, are all set for late November at @BristolaticMrs hairdresser. Before the dyeing (colour, that is) session, though, the manager of the local shopping precinct (Kings Chase in Kingswood, Bristol) has agreed to me having a table and fundraising display on 24th April (the middle of MS Awareness Week) and 21st August. I've never done anything like that before, so it should be interesting. Also, in August, after a visit to The Shard in London for a three course lunch (a present from son and daughter-in-law) @BristolaticMrs and I are going to the MS Trust's head office in Letchworth Garden City for an interview and video recording for the website. Starstruck? Me? Nah.
  12. That was the replay that also ended in a draw and a second replay was played at Nottingham Forest's City Ground. I was at that one. It was the first ever competitive Sunday game between two teams from the top four divisions. It was during Ted Heath's 3 day week malarkey when street lights went off early and clubs weren't allowed to use their floodlights. On reflection, was the game at Cambridge the Sunday one, or was it the one at Forest? Memory fades with age. You'd think I'd remember seeing as I went to the second one.
  13. He'll probably find a job somewhere, but not at BP thanks.
  14. I honestly wonder if keepers these days are discouraged from coming for everything. As far as I can recall, Pogliacomi was the last one we had came for practically every cross that came in. His defenders knew he was going to come for them. I know it's going back a long way, but in my playing days as a goalkeeper, I was told, "Go for the ball and take everyone out as well if you have to. At least the cross won't have done us any harm." The game has definitely changed in many ways, and I think that this is one of them. I may be in the minority here, but I thought even Peter Shilton often didn't come for crosses that he should have. Perhaps it's being coached as more of a defender's job now (any thoughts, @BP1960?), but I take the point that we, and every club really, should have a commanding keeper. Having said that, I think that Iversen is a very good keeper and, at 22/23 years of age, he has a lot more developing to do and will probably not hit his peak for another 4 or 5 years. The search will need to start fairly soon, as Iversen won't be here next season and De La Paz is a real unknown quantity.
  15. Yes, it's developing, although I'm not convinced that the tufty bits on the top of my head will amount to much. The beard, on the other hand, is doing quite well after its first couple of months. By the end of the year, I wonder if I could get a part in Only Fools and Horses if the BBC ever do a remake? "During the wowar". By December 2019, will I be in or will I be more of a A big THANK YOU to @BristolaticMrs for keeping on top all the various things that need to be done, especially right now as she is suffering with another of those offshoots of Multiple Sclerosis, Trigeminal Neuralgia which has hit her for the first time in years. The facial pain is excruciating, rather like having a tooth drilled and filled without the anaesthetic. Naturally, a huge THANK YOU as well to everyone who has contributed to 61% of our initial target .
  16. The daft thing is, when you talk to George, he can be a really nice, sensible lad. He knows he does stupid things and brings it on himself. Then he goes and does it all again. Madness; the kid doesn't seem to know how to help himself. Maybe he'll start learning now.
  17. I must have led a sheltered life. I've still no idea what some of this is all about.
  18. Geographically, you're the nearest one to him, so on your bike and get it sorted.
