  1. The old hyper-religious guy who paraded outside the turnstiles before every big game wearing a sandwich board that declared "the End is Nigh. Repent Now or Face your Grim Consequences" (or words to that effect)
  2. Bloody cheek. They've been jealous of us for years.
  3. Toulouse were brilliant against the Bulls last season. Metaphorically, kicked sand in our faces. They might struggle up front in Superleague but their creativity in attack will be a breath of fresh air.
  4. The microchip shortage is sending the motor industry into crisis. The shortage of new cars is sending the used-car prices sky-high. I could get more for my four-year-old 2018 Spacetourer than the £16500 I paid when I bought it second-hand two years ago. https://www.motorpoint.co.uk/vehicle-search/citroen/space tourer/options/-peoplecarrier_bs=on Buy an old banger till the prices come down. Indulge yourself in an aged prestige motor or van with a diesel engine ... far more reliable than petrol.
  5. Kelvin Skerret v Harvey Howard would be a good contrast. Kevin Ward v Anyone? Only one winner.
  6. It's a shame that the forward v forward situation isn't being played out much nowadays. Bradford Northern were a good team but could be bullied. Then we signed Jimmy Thompson, Ian van Bellen and Jeff Grayshon. Problem solved. I can't remember Jimmy Thompson ever starting off any rough play ... but he always remembered; especially remembering Mike Nicholas. In the age of semi-pro players, he and Jeff Grayshon had really honed physiques.
  7. A Christmas Number One on Sky. Really good comedy and a bit of a tear jerker as well.
  8. B & Q £11.95 https://www.diy.com/departments/dicon-mains-battery-smoke-alarm-670mbx/29971_BQ.prd
  9. The trouble with the Claque is that they think their opinion is more important than anyone else's. Then they snivel to the Moderators when it's challenged. Anyone who wanted Brexit was regarded as an imbecile and completely out of step with the zeitgeist (). Then the working class twice proved them wrong at the ballot box. The second time, the working class were even prepared to vote Tory in protest about the way the Labour Party was ignoring its core voting stock. I presume Claquers are still whingeing about all this on the Politics Thread. If only the Public had listened to them.
  10. I can rember when we just had 2 channels and ITV didn't show anything before about 4pm every day ... Crossroads
  11. A badge of honour or, alternatively, guilty of having a different viewpoint than the TRL claque. Anyway, someone who I thought would be alive and would eventually record again. Unfortunately, he died two years ago ... Mark Hollis of Talk Talk.
  12. The competition could have split the teams into two groups ... The M62 and the A1.
  13. He once did a show at Oakenshaw Park in Bradford. Fell off.
  14. None of those RL grounds have got anything other than a few scrub trees around them. Pontypool Park boasts dozens of different tree species, including this one: A national competition to name Wales' most beautiful trees has just come to an end. And the winner of the Woodland Trust competition is a 400-year-old chestnut tree in Pontypool Park. Proper Game of Thrones tree if I ever saw one.
  15. If nothing else, Pontypool have the most picturesque ground in either code of rugby. Their decline, just like that of Newbridge, Cross Keys and Ebbw Vale, owes much to the favouritism showed to Newport by the WRU.
  16. Didn't see the game ... working and telly disconnected for associated purpose. However, I have some confidence in thinking that we won't get promoted with John Kear at the helm. "Not getting relegated " is our style of play these days. We have no mavericks and I think we play what amounts to stereotype rugby. The worst thing about today's result is that I'm not right bothered about it. I'm bored stiff with relentles five drives and a kick. Mind you, it makes the fans' pubtime reminiscences much more fun than they were when we actually won stuff. Stockholm syndrome has kicked in and, yes. I'll be renewing season tickets. To be fair, I've had forty-odd years of paying Income Tax and I'm never been overjoyed about that either.
  17. Fleeting Return: Not sure if it was a one-off performance but Lachlan Walmsley was the best player I've seen this season the Championship.
  18. Funny how times change. Three former giants of Australian RL have not made the playoffs ... Manly, Broncos and St George.
  19. To be fair, for a couple of years I had Sweet Child o' Mine as my ringtone.
