Bizarre situation
at 19:42 26 Dec 2019

We remain in a very good league position- as good as anyone could really demand. Our form and performances have been poor for a prolonged period. It would be much easier to stick with it, were I not utterly baffled by the refusal to try to settle a system and personal, and by some of the selections. Usually when it comes to selections, people have different opinions and one has to accept that one's views on a choice are not clear cut and definitive. But here...

Is there ANYONE on the board who thinks that Nsiala deserves to start over Wilson?

Or that dropping Downes in a game we clearly should (and need to) win is rational.

Or is it, in reality, an indication that childishness continues to lurk in the corners of most decent people- which is a good thing?

at least we got clarity on nuses last night qt
at 08:38 29 Nov 2019

I thought maybe the cons had been saying that they were losing x number each year and therefore adding 50k had to include stopping that to add 50k to the total. But expressing it very badly.

But no. It was very clearly put. 50k more than there would otherwise have been in 10 years but for the proposed measures. So it has indeed been a wilfully and cynically dishonest claim.

Credit to the Man City women's team
at 18:00 24 Nov 2019

The time and effort they spent after the match to make sure everyone waiting got signatrues and pictures was excellent.

The match itself (Bristol City v Man City) was pleasant enough, but the reduced physicality and speed is very notable as against the semi-pro non league fayre I routinely watch. Movement and angles were impressive and the passing ethos very much apparent.

Jill Scott was impressive- probably the only one there physically quick and robust enough, with sharp movement and feet to really stand out. She would do okay in a men's game, at a reasonable level I suspect.

Daughter has photos and signatures from her heroines so all good.

party leader bigotry?
at 13:46 20 Nov 2019

Whilst it is reasonable to continue to criticise one leader on anti semitism issues, it seems right to note and discuss his opponent's extraordinary history of overtly discriminatory comments.

Boris is a man who referred, in print, to gay friends of peter mandelson as 'tank topped bumboys'. Who has made the assertion that women are inherently fickle. And who talks of muslim women in burkgas as looking like pillar boxes.

Most people are aware of that last one. But how about the other two?

Mundane UK Travel advice...
at 18:48 10 Nov 2019

At the back end of this week, I am trekking from the South West up to Pocklington in Yorkshire, for a lovely weekend of guitar related tomfoolery.

I have decided it is stupid to start a 4h 15m journey on Friday morning as the event starts at 1pm (and I need to check in first). I would therefore have to battle Bristol motorway rush hour traffic adding at least an hour and making for a very early start on a day which is supposed to be relaxed and fun.

So- I thought I'd stop in Brum and visit a couple of places- stay overnight for a Balti and then travel up int he morning. However, I have left it late, and even the Hagley Road Premier Inn is £76. So I was wondering if there was somewhere on route people would recommend as a nice stop - either somewhere lovely to stay but keenly priced (ideally with a pool!) or somewhere that is fun for a bloke on his own to potter round, or have a drink etc before returning to hotel.

Ill probably end up paying the £76 but en route, I could stop at Bromsgrove, Nottingham, Derby or even further north- and still make my planned stops in Brum to visit things.

Any clever ideas?

My fridge died
at 19:38 3 Nov 2019

It felt quite new but we think its probably about 9 years old now. Fridges used to live forever. Is this normal now?

Anyone ever bothered repairing one or does the price usually end up being pointless?
