    Maybe I'll go there next after I'm done with the decade stint I've done in Australia.

    I dropped a flannel in the bath I was giving my two year old daughter earlier. I'm not sure what it is about that picture of Dodds but he looks exactly like that sad floating flannel floating in a bath filled with toddler pee.

    Pennywell.

    In the ‘60’s

    We had a back field over our garden fence.
    15 minute walk to play on Penshaw Ornament.
    5 minute walk to Hylton woods and the Wear.
    5 minute walk to the Sandhills.
    King Georgies playing fields beside the shopping crescent.
    A bus ride to Roker and Seaburn.
    Also by bus, places like Chester le Street with boats and the park area.

    Never had any money but I wouldn’t have changed a thing.
    The SAFC situation in those days was similar to now with us in the then Division two.
    Mostly not achieving much but when we did it was special.

    I'd be tempted to start Alese and bring Clarke straight back in too. Even if they only gives us 60 mins each

    Patterson
    Hume Ballard O'Nien Alese
    Rigg Neil
    Roberts Aouchiche Clarke
    Bellingham​

    Subs: Bishop, Hjelde, Pembele, Styles, Ba, Mundle, Hemir, Watson, Dack

    Although got a feeling Dack will start

    If it wasn't for my wife, I definitely wouldn't be here.

    Wouldn't get into that here in case there's any Australians on here it would offend. I am a guest here after all, I should really be more grateful.

    I only once experienced anything untoward when I walked into a bar and asked for a pint and a half of lager, "Its not a pint" "just give me the large one" no ****ing suggestion on what it was called, probably pissed off having to work Sunday afternoon and we were just enjoying ourselves, but he was being a prick

    They've really ****ed up their beer serving measurements. It varies from state to state and it'd quite convoluted. Pints, schooners, pots, midi's.

    Fark off you ****er. Poor it into a ****ing measuring jug and serve it in that if you must but give me a fecking pint.

    'Attacking set pieces' very strong who said that ? Bristol teams have a bogey over us another defeat i am afraid. International fans day as well what's the point.

    The stats say that. 2nd most shots in the league from set piece situations resulting in the 5th most xG. We are average at converting them shots but we still offer significant threat from them.

    More point than talking to a bunch of complete strangers on the Internet I'd imagine.

    agreed, that’s got to be it for Evans? Great pro, but seems increasingly pointless to us if all he can provide is dressing room support.
