  1. Past hour
  2. Louis Carey

    Believe Matt Hale is involved at Southampton (or was). Used to play together in the youth set up here perhaps, hence the opportunity.
  3. What does Lansdown see that most of us can't ?

    Take a step back; he isn't a UK resident anymore. He s not using Bristol sport to mitigate tax, because he's tax resident in Guernsey in the first place
  4. Bobby Reid off to Everton ?

    :laugh:, there is -100% chances of this happening.
  5. Michele Lepore

    I notice this in the comments section (translated): "It sounds like a fairy tale, but I cannot imagine it happening. Even if there is a lack of good coaches in England, there are very good professional coaches in the (higher) regional leagues in Germany. So one does not resort to a district league trainer." So even the Germans think it is far-fetched. The only thing that gives this credence is he is 34 and non-league. Insecure 'leaders' often hire beneath themselves on age and experience so as not to feel threatened. After Holden and McAllister (young, little or no experience) this sounds about right.
  6. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    Sponsoring the East Stand - Poplar Insulation East Stand - although, sadly the pies these days leave a lot to be desired.
  7. Bobby Reid off to Everton ?

    Posting so I can lord it over @Fordy62 when he inevitably signs a contract
  8. Bobby Reid off to Everton ?

    If Bobby goes to Everton, I'll eat my hat.
  9. Player Power...Is it slipping?

    Dembele to barca as well as coutinho and van dijk will go either Liverpool or Chelsea.
  10. Radio Bristol 6pm Monday night
  11. Difficult question, or is it..?

    It's the solitary thing as a club that they have over us (unless you're a tentaphile). Clarke has achieved in the face of extreme adversity. Johnson has not achieved in the face of a blank cheque book.
  12. Today
  13. What does Lansdown see that most of us can't ?

    1.2 million was a lot of money for us back then indeed we spunked a lot that summer and we got relegated, so no doesnt negate the point... Spending money doesnt equal success nor does it give us the right for it. if you think other wise great for you. however i'll disagree as we have done it loads of times and it hasnt meant that we are world beaters or that we will win, lots... however lots of fans includig yourself seem to think otherwise, we are 'rich' so surely that means we should be better than we are.. We dont have that right and have to earn it...
  14. What does Lansdown see that most of us can't ?

    In your previous post you said it was a decent result now its average. If you are saying they mean the same then you are happy with mediocrity. Or you are being slowly persuaded it was not up to much. Many will be happy with mid table. I have no idea why. I doubt even SL will be happy with that.
  15. "Taxi for Johnson"

    What about Stacey Penton???...
  16. "Taxi for Johnson"

    I'm sure Lee will chip in with petrol money..
  17. Engvall scoring

    Tfl would be your best bet for the answer there Pongo. ! Be interesting to compare the stats of Engval and the new kid from Fulham. Not that it really means much or you can take much from it I suppose. Clearly LJ does not look at stats or he would not have gone back to Sweden. All very bizarre and yet another example of how making an error with a player, that is what this is, does have a knock on effect in so many ways. It was and not taking anything away from him but not a great deal of defending going on to be fair.

    Google negative gearing real estate as used in Australia
  19. Engvall scoring

    Đurić out until(at least)november-as regards cTaylor;its all gone quiet on that front...hope this means he's due back & not silence to be broken with "out until November"!!....as regards the evasive Gus this all goes only in 'one direction.
  20. Michele Lepore

    I was feeling more positive until I saw his age; at 34 he could very well add a dimension but i was dreaming he was going to be brought in to make a seismic change; I mentioned a couple of German coaches in the close season and before that when many of us were desperate for LJ to walk. There are some very good coaches in Bundesliga 2. Now, someone to help LJ, if this rumour is true is a step in the right direction but currently with 3 coaches all novices and all in their mid 30's the club needs someone in their mid 40's. This will have the impact required to properly bolster the coaching ranks.
  21. Michele Lepore

    Would make sense if for the youth side Of imagine if we're attempting to give a different philosophy to press upon the youngsters a more pressing style ala Wagner possibly? Seems a long shot tho.
  22. Forget Watford... Villa Friday night...

    HA ha yeah - to be honest I don't know what's happening at our club recently concerning keepers. FF is a good shop stopper, but that's the bread and butter of all keepers. Championship and above keepers need to bring a little more to the table, and I am not sure what FF does, collecting crosses, distribution, commanding the area marshalling the defence - I don't know.
  23. Boxing

    I've avoided all the build up and haven't watched a second of any of it. To be honest its mainly due to the fact I can't stand either of them. I'll stream the fight out of curiosity but I don't think for a second that McGregor stands any chance whatsoever. I'm amazed anybody thinks otherwise.
  24. Engvall scoring

    It Must've Been Love But It's Over Now, this is just a Joyride at the moment Tone.... all we can do is hang on for now and see where takes us... Meanwhile why not enjoy some Roxette? ....
  25. The Millwall Debacle

    The point I am making is that MM start at Ipswich was pretty much the same and as LJ has been for us. They picked a manager they believed in, he took over and gave an immediate improvement. Then the following season was disappointing and showed very little progress, the fans wanted him gone thought he was vastly overrated but the board stuck with him and things got better. The board had faith where the fans did not. Whether our board ends up being right or not Ipswich are a team that shows sticking with someone can pay off. People talk about him having had time already (used to be you'd get at least two full seasons but hey ho) and wanting to judge him on his overall performance, not just this season. But part of that seems to forget out about the good spells and pretty much fixate on that terrible run. This is his record P 74 W 28 D 15 L 31 That a total of 99 points which is about 1.337 a game which over a season is 61.5 points a high mid table in pretty much every season for the last 5 years. That is his record, I suggest if you are not happy with his overall performance it's because of one of three things - 1. you never liked him or wanted him 2. You are completely fixated on the terrible run and cannot see past it. Or 3. You actually deep down are expecting too much. You are expecting us to be minimum in the playoffs and would see mid table stability as a failure. I'm pleased we are a club sticking with their manager and backing them. I wish we'd started earlier (still think Cotts could have improved things). It's not blind allegiance, it's looking at the overall picture and giving the manager a fair amount of time. He has a very acceptable record overall and 4 games into the season it's crazy to call for him to go. Give it to at least 10 games and then see where we are.
  26. "Taxi for Johnson"

    All will be well when Taylor returns. As long as LJ plays him of course.
