    [Albion] Least away attendance that you’ve been part of

    Arrived in the car park at Ewood for a Championship game at Blackburn to discover the game had just been called off, a very local cloudburst had flooded the pitch. Rather than turn around and head straight home we popped up the road to Accrington Stanley for their game against Plymouth. A few...

    [Albion] "I think he's an Albion fan", Amsterdam/Ajax edition

    Another thanks for the heads up. Two of us booked on KLM out of Norwich Weds PM. I note their flight tracker shows some cancellations each day this week but also some flights reinstated. Curious, as generally this is a reliable route.

    [Albion] 15 Years Ago Today, I Took This Photo...

    Why does that bloody Viper's Bugloss keep appearing all over the building site...! :ROFLMAO::bloom:

    [Albion] RIP Gerry Ryan

    RIP Gerry. I recall his debut at The Goldstone. That mane of hair. Didn't know a lot about him but hoping he'd fit into the team. More of a wide player back then and he duly gave his marker a torrid time. Hmm, this guy's going to be OK... Those goals against Liverpool will always stand out in...

    [Politics] Are baby boomers taxed enough?

    Rather than targeting more taxes - why not hold the Govt to account and focus on the existing tax revenue already wasted / lost within its departments? The National Audit Office has already identified £60 billion of 'our' money is 'lost' per annum! Comprised of £26bn 'fraud & error' in the tax...

    [Music] ALERT. Bruce Springsteen and Mary's Place.

    Saw Bruce in Edinburgh a couple of weeks ago. Thought the venue and organisation was good. Was unseasonably hot at Murrayfield- but the stewards seemed switched on, allowing early access into the shaded parts of the stadium and handing out drinking water to whoever needed it. Having seen him a...

    [Politics] Tory meltdown finally arrived [was: incoming]...

    This timescale was suggested in a discussion between political commentators last week and whether any preliminary findings might be allowed. I do agree that it seems rather optimistic for a forensic and fully objective report to be completed... I'd prefer the latter but also understand that...

    [Politics] Tory meltdown finally arrived [was: incoming]...

    With commentators suggesting the Covid Inquiry will take 2 years to report back and questionable what, if any, sanctions may arise, let alone register on Johnson's 'give a shit' o-meter, He's survived a lifetime of lies. Inquiries into his liaisons with Jennifer Acuri, playing tennis with...

    [Football] How big is Mitoma back in Japan

    Tend to agree and also suggest what currently places Mitoma apart from any Albion wide player I've see over the years is that he's consistently delivering at a very high level in the Premier League (and internationally for Japan). :mitoma:

    [Albion] Modestly good moments at the Amex

    Albion v Charlton in the Championship: December 2015. A barnstorming late Albion win, coming back from being 0-2 down after 5 mins. A goal back by James Wilson after 50 mins but still trailing 1-2 with 10 mins to go, then late goals in the last 5 mins from Zamora & Hemed. Great Amex...

    [Misc] 5 attempts to get blood sample at hospital - anybody beat that?

    My elderly Mum recently fractured her pelvis and was in considerable pain, while on an ambulance waiting outside A&E.. Fortunately, she was in the care of an advanced paramedic who was brilliant with her, except on this occasion he struggled to get a needle into either arm. To be fair, she had...

    [Football] Was that our best ever League performance?

    Yep. On balance the best league game I'v seen, given the quality of opponent. I kept waiting for Liverpool to go up a gear or two but it never happened - and mostly because we dominated them, with fluid, incisive football, at pace and with clinical finishing. Heady days. We no longer fear any...

    [Albion] Substitutions

    We badly missed Mitoma. His pace and direct running would have shredded the Forest defence. So, I agree - an opportunity to give Sarmiento or Encisco 30 mins.

    [News] Battle of Britain Sunday

    A local churchyard here at Bircham and near the former RAF Bircham Newton airbase, features a fine Commonwealth War Grave memorial garden, containing several rows of neatly tended WW2 RAF graves. Several from 1940. Many from New Zealand. Rather poignantly, off to one side, but sharing the same...

    [Misc] Libraries-How long will they last?

    I prefer to a hold a book rather than the digital variety. I'm an occasional library user but also happy to buy and occasionally pass on or donate books for charity in the community. Locally, we have several 'open libraries' where by punters can let themselves into the library outside of...

    [Misc] The what’s the temperature or heat feel where you are at the moment thread

    36c here in NW Norfolk. Just been to visit my dear old Mum, currently in Kings Lynn hospital having broken her pelvis. The wards are all in darkness with curtains closed and lights turned off to reduce heat output. No air-con and the ward is just below a fat roof so its still rather toasty...

    [Misc] Interesting or Famous Ancestors

    Maybe an interesting story, with some current context: My Grandfather served in a small Royal Navy Air Service (RNAS) unit sent to assist our then Tzarist Russian allies along the Eastern front during WW1, where he was credited with the first shooting down of an (enemy) aircraft - from a...

    [Albion] Are games against Palace the ones you want to win the most?

    No. Yes, there is spice to our rivalry and certainly do not wish to lose to 'them'. But I'd rather savour victory by little old Brighton over the true elite. That still feels magical. Back in the late 60's / early 70's, when I first followed BHA, Palace were not on my radar. Our games...

    [Albion] Plans for tonight's match.

    No trains so will be setting off from north-west Norfolk shortly, then a circuitous drive via Woodbridge (Suffolk) to share the journey south with another STH. Followed by a further detour via Hailsham for a festive call on another STH who cannot make the game. Finally, to the Amex via the...

    [Politics] Tory meltdown finally arrived [was: incoming]...

    I suspect BJ will try his usual denials, evasion, bullshit and bluster at PMQs later... not sure he is capable of owning up or showing true gravitas & honesty, let alone the right calibre of leadership. Not that anyone really believes what he says. He is so deeply immersed in his own swamp of...
