Surprised we’ve not heard anything about the 150th thing.

Isn’t our ‘birthday’ in November 1874 so would it be the season after?

Was it March or November 1874? Either way I think 2024-25 would be more apt, as Dave points out.

As a November baby and people lazily adding an extra number to my age for most of the year, I'm on-board with 2024/25.

For 150, I want a retro kit. Proper retro, no sponsor, no names on the back and very long shorts like trousers.

One match at VP should be played with a brown leather ball with the stitching on it.

Free top hats given out to supporters.

The team comes out to Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake music (came out in the 1870s so everyone back then would have been bopping their heads to it).

What food could be served at half time?

We should also play our home games in Perry Barr.

Maybe some 1870s food wouldn't be a bad thing.

Quote from: BBC
According to a study published in the Royal Society of Medicine, "How the Mid-Victorians Worked, Ate and Died", the combination of enormous amounts of physical activity (most people did physically demanding jobs which meant they were active for 50 to 60 hours a week) and a diet rich in fruits, whole grains, oily fish and vegetables meant that Victorians suffered less from chronic, degenerative diseases than we do.

Dr Paul Clayton, one of the authors of the study, claims that they were "90% less likely to develop cancer, dementia and coronary artery disease than we are today". It certainly meant that diseases like type-2 diabetes, which plague modern society, were vanishingly rare.

Doesn't the massively lower life expectancy back then rather undermine claims like 'there was less dementia'? Most people didn't live long enough to see if they developed it.

That's what I've always thought, but the Royal Society of Medicine likely know more about it than a couple of blokes on H&V.

I'm sure. And I hope so, as I'm unreasonably proud of my peasant-chic diet (you've got to hold on to what you've got). And I've seen other stuff about these diets helping with degenerative whatnot. It's just...yeah, there's the whole life-expectancy thing.

Now that Emery is here I’m planning on improving my lifestyle so I can stick around a bit longer to enjoy the good times. I figured had we kept Gerrard or appointed Dyche or Allardyce I’d be eating as many burgers, smoking as many fags and consuming as much chocolate and ice cream to ensure I don’t live to see much more of us. Between that diet and the football it should finish me off quickly.

The pedantic answer is it makes the claim more plausible. Would be interesting to know how much influence each factor has though.
