    David Gold vs TB (and other fun sightings)


    2 Not allowed!
    In one car journey tonight I’m pretty sure I saw the talented mr Potter and our once rumoured potential owner mr David Gold, some 15 miles apart.

    The former was being dropped off outside the salt rooms in town (accuracy of sighting rating 75%), the latter was having a nice meal in Hurstpierpoint (accuracy of sighting rating 100%).

    The potential sighting of Potter was a momentary excitement.

    The definite sighting of gold was thought provoking.

    He arrived in one hell of a blinged up rolls, monogrammed upholstery, driver (who waited in the car obviously) and proper look at me number plates.

    Got me thinking that once upon a pre-TB era, some thought Gold would be the answer to getting the Amex built and taking the Albion forward, as he is known to live in GOSBTS.

    This has only strengthened my feelings that we are wildly fortunate to have a billionaire chairman who takes the train to away games, who is clearly a fan and who has married business acumen with fan values (most of the time).

    Here’s a photo to prove that my waffle is not entirely b******s!

      I thought I saw Sean Bean in Brighton today.
      On closer inspection I realised it wasn’t him.
      Which famous people have you thought you have seen but were mistaken.
      now my friends have gone,
      and my hair is grey,
      and I ache in the places that I used to play.

      Which surely makes the use of the rolls and a driver even more ostentatious. Wreaks of a seriously well established Ego!

      No occurrences of mistaken identity but I once met Ian Brown (a hero of my Stone Roses obsessed youth). Unfortunately I was so banjoed that all I could do was squeek and offer my little finger as a handshake. I know the cliche is never meet your idols but I think that night it was more a case of never meet your fans....

      I've never seen Sid Little or anyone that looks like him.

      Pretty sure TB has a nice little motor with a private plate, L122 ARD.

      Edit. Or maybe that's someone else's motor I saw near the training ground.

      I don’t believe you there Stat.
