  1. Past hour
  2. 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.
  3. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

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

    Posting so I can lord it over @Fordy62 when he inevitably signs a contract
  5. Player Power...Is it slipping?

    Dembele to barca as well as coutinho and van dijk will go either Liverpool or Chelsea.
  6. Radio Bristol 6pm Monday night
  7. 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.
  8. Today
  9. 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...
  10. "Taxi for Johnson"

    What about Stacey Penton???...
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Yesterday
  16. Service into Diedhiou

    Got to get the ball to his feet around the box. Think he's got a similar trait to Harry Kane where he's stronge enough to get ball to feet on the edge of the box, turn and fire one low and hard to the corners. He's not Harry Kane of course but I saw signs of this against Twente and even further up the pitch he's comfortable getting it at his feet and turning to get up the pitch or play someone in. Basically he needs touches around the box(shocking!). Didn't happen Saturday and he's already getting the not worth it tag.
  17. Mid table

    That'll be the inflation Spud's post was a good one though
  18. cycle racing racing taking place central area on Saturday

    Hardly a fair race and probably not particularly safe either. Crap idea.
  19. One variable: Hegeler / Baker?

  20. Test Cricket

    Here's the real explanation.
  21. Louis Carey

    Exactly what I think. Not doubting his Legend status at the club but I have had my doubts that he really has ever supported the club following his decision to leave for Coventry. Also after his comments about 'Bristol United'.

    Whats happened to one for the Bristol city , the wurzels , Tim Shires . the ditte warm up when the players come out 2nd half , this season ? sorry If this does not meet with the majority but if DJ Downsey was to disappear and reintroduce the aforementioned I would be a happy red robin !
  23. team for Watford

    Lukic Vyner Wright Hegeler Kelly Eliasson O'neil Pack O'Dowda Hinds Diedhiou Magnússon to come on for Kelly Brownhill for Pack Reid for Diedhiou Back to the high press game hopefully, rather than the boot out from the back and hope for the best.
  24. Stewarding hits a new low...

    We don't have this in the south stand !!!! @Mkelly @AdamB hot water ? warm air driers ?
  25. Softest City Side Ever ?

    Is that it ?
  26. Villa Tickets - Lansdown Upper

    I think it will be open - they are going to get a good crowd so no reason for it not to be.
  27. People You Might Want To Contact by email (Merged)

    I apologise, I was only joshing good sir
