  1. News just in - Matt Hancock has turned down the Spurs job.
  2. The first gig I had cancelled (19 March 2020) was Ian Prowse at Appletrewwick and the first gig that I have booked when the UK is scheduled to unlock on 21 June is the rescheduled gig on 25 June. Hopefully this is a positive sign! Other gigs 'booked':- Tom Brooksby, Sheffield, 25 September Jesse Malin, Sheffield, 3 October, The Waterboys, Sheffield, 10 October Jason Isbell, Manchester, 17 November Ian Prowse, Liverpool, 11 December, now double booked with rescheduled Glory Days, Sheffield . I like a bit of tribute Bruce, but Prowsey wins every time.
  3. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/formula1/48583803 Good article on the BBC by former F1 driver Jolyon Palmer. In summary, blame the rules, not the stewards. There's another piece on BBC by Alexander Wurz which basically says the drivers and teams have created this by demanading a rule (and consistency) for every eventuality. According to the rules, the stwards were correct. The rules suck. F1 has become far too sanitised. Safety, yes, but they need to be able to race. And if they are racing hard, there will be crashes. If you penalise every incident that may result in a crash, you end up with what we have now - a very expensive Scalextic.
  4. We've seen him loads of times - about 30 now (the first one was in York) and haven't been disappointed once, be that full band or small acoustic shows. Off to Leeds in a couple of weeks time, Sheffield in November and Liverpool for the annual Christmas gig.
  5. Bruce is a big fan of Prowsie. I know for a fact that he has a copy of his ‘Very Best Of’ album.
  6. Prowsey (seen swimming in this Lake from time to time) has just released his new solo album, which is excellent. Available to stream free (for a limited period). If you get the chance to see him live, do it - you will not be disappointed https://www.kitchendiscorecords.com/ian-prowse?fbclid=IwAR1Z7RMWyOb7nLT96jCoeenJhWzzOO7tuTp3tyY7j3dKIkhiKuYoImJnnU0
  7. I love lots of his music and hate lots of it, especially the later poppy stuff. I think he was a great drummer and having just read his autobiography, he appears to be a decent bloke. I think the problem was that, for a time, you just couldn't move without either seeing him on TV or hearing him on the radio/movie tracks. He just became uncool due to over saturation. And Live Aid. As for the Gabriel v Collins thing, I think Gabriel had the better voice but 'A Trick of the Tail' is my favourite Genesis album. The 'competition' between them is clearly in the fans' minds, not theirs - they still appear to be good mates.
  8. A real toss up between side 2 of WIESS and side 2 of BTR. In the end I went with BTR because there is one more track.
  9. I remember being very disappointed with these albums when they came out, although I enjoyed the shows I saw. I lost interest in Bruce for a long time afterwards (tbh, I lost interest in most music). Thankfully The Rising fixed that. And I'm really enjoying the new archive release.
  10. Taking Gin Kid #4 and his GF to the London gig later this month. They loved Southside a few weeks ago (although they were the youngest there 'by about 100 years' - sorry Cabby) and I'm sure they'll love this too.
  11. If anyone ever asks which is the biggest, best supported club in the North East, here is the answer.
  12. He's very good, but he's not even Scotland's greatest ever sportsperson (Chris Hoy).
  13. A god day. When the Toon went down, we were optimistic of coming back up providing Rafa stayed. We had plenty of players who we could sell to raise money too (thanks Spuds). But the mackems are in a different state. Their manager is clueless, their players are old and knackered and I can't see anyone offering big money for any of them. I can't see them bouncing back
  14. Two great goals as well. After the game, Messi and Ronaldo both 'phoned Atsu to get tips on taking free kicks.
  15. I really enjoyed the gig and it was good to meet up with people too. Very much a 'greatest hits' show (nothing wrong with that) and some very good musicians, especially the guitarist. I was a bit surprised though. I thought they were a UK band, but the 'Bruce' dialogue between songs was in Russian or some other unrecognizable language.
  16. If we do go up, then maybe this stumbling squeaky bum promotion is good for us. If we'd run away with it, then the FCB would have broken every promise and kept his money in his wallet. But there is no way this squad is anywhere near good enough to stay in the top flight - he's going to have to splash the cash if he wants us to cash in on the telly money.
  17. Lionel Messi still has a Peter Beardsley poster on his bedroom wall. And wears Peter Beardsley pajamas.
  18. Straightforward win this evening. Uddersfield had plenty of the ball but were clueless with it. Rafa is a tactical genius.
  19. Our strip next season includes crotchless shorts.
  20. Good to see Shelvey back and pulling the strings. The best player in the Championship by a mile. If the rumours around Townsend are true, that would be another massive plus. I'll forgive the twat for fucking off and leaving us in the clarts. And yet another Andy Carrol rumour. Which means he'll be picking up another long term injury next weekend.
