I spent a very pleasurable evening at Twerton Park, taking in Bath City vs Bristol City and the plethora of former Grecians...

Scott Golbourne for Bristol, tidy enough game but likely to be second choice LB behind d the highly rated Joe Bryan.

Frankie Artus for Bath, subbed after a suspected dislocated elbow. Looked nasty, could be looking at a few weeks out.

Stuart Fleetwood, second half sub. Looked his usual self (disinterested, lazy, summed up by one counter attack ending with the Bristol keeper catching a cross as Fleetwood slowly jogged across the halfway line)

Danny Coles in the stand. Had 2 big fellas with him, Bristol fans hate him more than we do. Looked in fantastic condition though.

My memory ain't the best, but I thought Cooper was a class act. As I recall, at one-point he went on trial Liverpool – while it's entirely conceivable this may have occurred when his dad's mate Souness was the Anfield manager, I'm not sure too many other City midfielders from that era would have been adjudged of a sufficient calibre. With regard to the suggestion that he was lazy, I'm, reasonably sure that it came to light after he'd stopped playing that he had a previously undiagnosed medical condition – ME or something not dissimilar – which may have been responsible for this.

That aside, I'm reliably informed, by someone whose opinion I respect greatly, that he's a thoroughly decent bloke.

Seen Scott Golborne play for Bristol City against Portsmouth on Saturday. He had a poor game, but then again the whole Bristol City team seemed to struggle
