    Football and Music Names

    From the thread on Prime Minister names, it got me thinking on the link that can be formed when you put the names of footballers with bands or musicians. Or the other way round. Here's 11 I've arranged. Robbie Savage- Garden Debbie Harry - Kane Colin Todd - Rundgren George Curtis- Mayfield...

    Five years ago today that the great man passed away. My dad started taking me to watch us play at Highfield Road just after Jimmy had taken over. And it didn't take me long to become a fan of the Sky Blues as I loved everything about the place, the atmosphere and the football his teams would...

    The Best Decades ?

    Talking to a customer today who is the same age as me and we both went to Caludon Castle school . He commented at how things have changed over the years, and how life is strange these days etc. I agreed and it got me thinking that we both were lucky in a way to be born in the fifties, and grew...

    First 2 callers in to the phone- in have said they want their managers out. First up was an Arsenal fan saying their manager will get them relegated, and then on came a Wolves supporter saying time for a change at Molineux. Unbelievable even Chris Sutton said is this a wind up ? But no they...

    Haven't had a beard for some years but thought I'd grow one and see how it looks ? Bit of a shock at first seeing all the grey hair ! But thought sod it I'll keep it short and neat, and like it now. Had the Father Christmas jokes off customers, but mainly positive comments. Only downside is the...

    Tyson v Roy Jones Jr

    Not long now before Mike Tyson enters the ring verses Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition contest. Both fighters are in their fifties and past their best, but seem serious about putting on a real fight. As a boxing fan this fight intrigues me, more so to see if 2 ex top Pugilists can still perform in...

    ACDC New Album

    Got my sister to order me the new ACDC album on Amazon recently, and I felt like a kid on Christmas morning when it arrived. And it doesn't disappoint as its typical ACDC hard rock music, every track a winner. But it took me back to some years ago when I bought 2 tickets for me and my then...

    Handling Bereavement ?

    Went to a mate of mines funeral on Thursday, a friend of 40 plus years. And last night I watched the Vinnie Jones on Piers Morgan interview, where Vinnie really opened up about losing his wife, and at times got really emotional. Mega respect to him for showing his feelings on tv which couldnt...

    Favourite Ever Cov City Player ?

    In the pub on Saturday night a group of us were discussing great players who have turned out for us over the years. Taking it in turns we had to choose our favourite ever player not necessarily the best. I had a few players in mind but chose George Hudson as mine. A no nonsense centre forward...

    A friend of mine borrowed his mate a couple of hundred quid to help him out. Told he will get it back as he was waiting for money to paid into his account etc. Heard he ripped him off and a few other people too, a really lousy bastard. That happened to me a few years back, took ages to get my...

    Football The Best Day Out ?

    Since the lockdown has eased we are able to get out and about more. I've been to the pub a couple of times, been out for some good walks, and met up with friends and family. But I have to admit I'm really missing going to a match, in fact to me it is without doubt the best day out. Meet a few...
