Football Manager 2020 | Bristol City vs Charlton - Season 1 Carabao Cup Round 4

Tuesday 29th October 2019

It seems like only yesterday when we last beat Charlton Athletic and here we are again. This time they play host and our team has some very important players out of action due to injury. That said, the squad is in very good spirits and have the skills necessary to take us through to the next round.

We still have numerous key players out with injuries but our medical team tell me that a couple of players are about ready to play again
Palmer is a very effective midfielder so if he's ready I think we'll try and play him but I think we'll give Pereira a little more recovery time.
Whatever our team on the day, the informed opinion is that we can, once again, best our Championship opposition  
To shake things up a little, I've decided that we'll start this cup match in one of our alternate formations and give our newly acquired goalkeeper Mark Gillespie another match.

Ready? Let's kick off!

The Result

Not a bad game at all, we had the lion's share of possession and plenty of a chances in front of goal. Disappointed that we didn't convert more of those chances but, at the end of the day, it only takes one goal for a win.
And this win is significant in that we are now through to the quarter finals and rather likely to play Premier League opposition. How far can we go this year?


However. Once again, our midfield squad is hit with another injury, this time one of our most impressive players this season, Han-Noah Massengo who will be out of action for several weeks now.
Oh, it appears there was a well-known figure watching this game...

Suspenders at the ready on this day Before The Lockdown: in 2003 Oh dear, this is rather embarrassing! I loved the film, it's iconic and a standard reference point for all of us who do not believe in conformity. Yet. I've only seen the stage show, on which the film was based, once. What is even worse is that I remember so very little of the Rocky Horror Show when I did get to see at the Wimbledon Theatre in London! It must have been fun, how could it not be? But no, I recall nothing. 😢 For some reason, I do not have a programme for this show, and I am almost fanatical in getting programmes! so the image here is one I have found on the Internet and, as far as I can tell, is correct for this particular tour An interesting side-note to this is that when searching for that image I discovered that at the time this show was running Wimbledon Theatre was in severe financial difficulties and did, in fact close for several months until it was rescued by the Ambassador Thea

On This Day: 25th May

It's time, once again, for the amateurs on this day Before The Lockdown: in 2018 Having seen quite a few amateur productions in Bath and Bristol, by both community groups and also theatre students in training, I thought it time to check out what London might be able to offer. The community based Putney Theatre Company at the Putney Arts Theatre created an evening devoted to new writing in a showcase of seven short pieces produced and performed by the PTC. Under the umbrella title of Fate Expectations each piece offered a moment in time, either realistic or fantastical, where everything could change. in 2019 The last of this year's Bristol Old Vic Theatre School Directors' Cuts season at the Wardrobe Theatre was How My Light Is Spent . A surreal tale of how one man's life literally starts to disappear. Having lost a 'proper job' and then been replaced by a coin-bin at a zero-hours fast-food joint his disappearing prospects become a physical reality
