  4. Excellent summary JBN - difficult to pick any holes in that to be fair.
  5. You're not wrong in the sense that all those things happened (there were others too - PNE away immediately springs to mind) - but I would imagine any club can look back over its previous 40 odd games and find similar ifs and buts. They are a fact of life for most teams, especially those near the bottom or top of leagues, and when you are in the mire each late goal's significance is enhanced. We've also scored one or two late goals as well as conceded them, so you can't just pick and choose which side of the coin to focus on. The bottom line is we haven't been good enough all season and in truth we deserve to go down.
  6. Blimey Mark, that's an unusual and fairly elongated triathlon mate!! For the first time in ages I recently checked myself against one of those height/weight charts, and apparently I should be 7'3".
  7. Oh God, no. Every time this happens it makes me appreciate how lucky I was to survive a similar incident in 2003. RIP big man. I hope he didn't suffer. His family will be all over the place.

  10. He has never, in his entire political career, shown any interest in leadership. He has never, in his entire political career, shown any loyalty to the party he now purports to lead. He has never respected the previous leaders in the party he now purports to lead. He still appears to have no interest in displaying any significant leadership qualities. He is cantankerous and passive-aggressive and short tempered, even under the most benign interrogation. He has only now started not dressing in the dark. He is an appalling orator, using 100 words when 10 would do. He has missed that many open goals at PMQs, against a Tory PM who is an equally poor speaker, he should be called Beamo. He has displayed none of the essential flexibility, empathy or emotional intelligence skills that would lead anyone with any objectivity to believe he can take a disparate group of people and make them into a force that can challenge the vicious right wing agenda we are currently suffering under. He is utterly hopeless in every single trait that a leader needs and it has nothing to do with how the press portray him.
  11. The Jam - All Around the World (Check out this live version of it from the Marc Bolan show in 1977 - Paul Weller was barely 19 at the time. This was my introduction to the group and it blew me away)
  12. I reckon about 6 or 7 is the best age to start going. My first game was a 0-0 draw at home to Tranmere I think in the late 60s, but my oldest son's first game was Lars Bohinen's debut at home to Southampton so he saw Shearer score. However, my younger son had the best start - his first three Rovers games went like this: Rovers 3 Barcelona 2 Rovers 7 West Ham 1 Rovers 5 Newcastle 2
