    I agree but I wonder if he gave one last chance to Jordy? Surely he has to move on in January now, if he wants to resurrect his career.

    :biggrin: Watching youth team players take his place won't help his confidence, so he'd be Wijs to move on.

    I do like to think outside of the box, which should make my funeral interesting.

    But only from Wednesday, and if you are eating a "substantial meal" (in Tier 2).

    Been lurking since we dropped out of the PL eons ago. Courtesy of the BBC watched the game. First for many years. If that all I have missed then I guess I dd not waste a lot of time previously. Thought it was a poor game lots of kick and run with a ton of mistakes. Clearly I need to stop watching Liverpoor or Man C hightlghts on YouTube etc. Was hoping I am sure like the rest of you for a lot more. I had been gettng excited about City again up to that point. And yes its just the Cup but a good run into the higher rounds would have been a chance for fringe players to shine in competiive matches and for the club to make some money. That chance has gone and now for some there is only the training ground. All in all a missed opportunity for the club and for some players.

    You can still drink to your heart's content at home. The anti alcohol fanatics at PHE would restrict that if they could find a way of doing it.

    That wasn't the team that play the league games though. I reckon the regular team would have beaten Stevenage 3-0.

    Alcohol will never be banned. Think guns in the USA. Its a huge money spinner and as you know, money is boss.

    They banned alcohol there. Worked well, didn't it? It is banned in some countries.Might be here if the demographics change though we won't be around by then.
    How's the non-smoking going?

    Govt minister has declared that a scotch egg, served to the table, counts as a substantial meal! You couldn't make it up.

    Sod that. The buggers might start hatching. We'd end up with a bar filled with little scotch peoples.

    The smoking? I'm afraid I have the will power of a thing without willpower. Every time I think about quitting, I want one more than I usually do. I'm weak.

    Drink, Alcohol, Guns, whatever. They make a lot of money for powerful companies.

    These people have a lot of power.

    As a mate of nine said 30 years ago after I had started smoking again after stopping for about 10 months "All you need is a backbone instead of a wishbone". Now we are 70 and I stopped 19 years ago, used to smoke 50-60 a day, and he is still smoking. Mind you, he inherited over £4 million when he was 60 so money is no longer a reason for him to stop. Can afford better quality drinks he gets through prodigious quantities of as well.

    I’m off to see an old mate tomorrow hopefully. Heavy smoker all his life. He had a stroke age 57 8 years ago.
    Been in a wheelchair since has never been able to speak properly again.
    Diagnosed with terminal stomach cancer now, was touch and go in hri a few weeks ago but has managed to keep some stuff down. Palliative care at his flat now
    nappy changed every hour and a half by carers. All the old lads allowed to visit him as covid isn’t a concern anymore. I want to go but not looking forward to it at all
    Gonna talk about the old days and how he looked after me 40 years ago when I first started playing men’s football.
    I know one person on here who went to school with him, an old endike lad off quaddy
    He was on city’s books at 16.

    Give it up mate before it’s too late

    I'll give it up, Chazz. I know I'm capable of it. They say it's best to pick a date to stop smoking, so I'm going to try that.

    We break up early this Christmas, 18th December until the 4th January. I plan to stop on 19th December.

    I owe it my own.

    I'm really sorry about your mate and what you just said there will go a long way to kicking me up the arse.

    Thanks, Chazz.

    I was once talking to a bloke that was a hypnotist in his spare time, and I couldn't relay the story face to face, so I won't even attempt it on here, but the basic story he told in a very conversational way to a group of us that had asked about it, got you to imagine being content and peaceful, and imagining that you are surrounded by all the people you love and care for. He built this up to a nice feeling, and then added in the realisation that those people are there because you are in bed, dying, and it was the cigarettes that had put you there, and smoking that was taking you away from those loved ones.

    It hit home quite hard. It didn't actually make me stop at that point, but that imagery has certainly stayed with me, and played a part in my stopping several years ago now.

    I actually lied about when I was going to stop, even to myself, because as soon as I put a date to it, it put pressure on, which made me smoke. I set a date, and then stopped smoking a week or two before, so that if I did weaken and take one, I hadn't 'failed', as I was only practicing. After that, it was minute by minute, then hour by hour, etc, and now I rarely fancy one, and if ever I do, that first taste is enough to make me give it back. It's also interesting how much you can tell someone is a smoker when they walk past, as the smell is very strong, especially if they've just had one, and that helps with stopping, along with the freedom of not having pockets filled with fags and matches, and fag burns in stuff.
