  1. Listening to Frank's half time comments v Tunisia, talked about energy and movement and speed so I guess we'll need 4 quick and tidy front men with end product. Counts out Jerome/Nuge and Martin doesn't it? Weimann as well maybe because of his end product?

    I'm sure he can hit a note and his band are capable players but no, not for me.

    U2 Aerosmith Meat Loaf Guns n Roses Genesis Duran Duran Boy George (and his band) Bon Jovi I would say Springsteen but that wouldn't be fair as I'm not familiar with most of his work. Born in the USA was poo and I tuned out. Wet Wet Wet. - awful.

    Depeche Mode of course. Oh, @WhiteHorseRam, I saw Ultravox at the Southampton Gaumont in 1981 was it? Always preferred the John Foxx variant myself. I'll give you Stiff Little Fingers.

    New chants.

    I really really hope that when Stoke come to town everyone does the Badger song, nice and simple. Badger Badger Badger Badger etc, Snake! ooh Snake! Cue lots of pointing at Rowett.
  8. Just got back from a trip to San Francisco with the missus, great place so go if you can. One evening we stopped for Fish and Chips at No9 Fishermans Grotto and lo and behold the guy serving us not only recognised the Ram on my T shirt but knew we were in the "second division" and that Frank Lampard was our new coach. This 2 for 2 for me because in the autumn of 2016 we went to New York. On day 2 we went to the Empire State, as you do, took the lift up as far as it goes to find a photographer doing the old tourist booth. He recognised my Ram on my sweatshirt and said he was aware of us from when we had our nightmare season. On the same trip also had an Australian guy recognise it at Grand Union Station but not sure if that counts as he was also a tourist. Anyone else had a pleasant surprise like this abroad?

    Maybe we can get Hendrick back on the cheap?

    Hudds came back didn't he?

    The Dirties

    Bruce would be a sensible appointment for Leeds, for that reason it won't happen.

    Aston Villa

    As far as i can tell, the Chinese rules about investment that have changed only apply to 300m or more so wouldn't be relevant in Xia's case with regard to Villa.

    Aston Villa

    An awful lot of 'em seem to think they'll get £40m for Grealish and reckon they won't have to sell him if they're offered way less. I think that's deluded but hey, I ain't seen the books. I think all the ones they need to get rid of are the ones on high wages or have injury problems or a combination of both, in other words, the ones no-one else wants.

    If your reading this Mel.........

    Ok genius, tell me where it says I think they'll be top 2? I'll give you a clue, it doesn't. What I was saying is that they need to be top 2, not will be.
