  1. 3 home games in 11 days

    Expect nothing in football, and one game at at a time. Burton will not be easy. They have an experienced squad who will have their legs back after two weeks off. There's also the monkey of the manager of the month curse to contend with!
  2. New Goal GIFs! (Merged)

    Could it be the same person who inputs the league table data on Bristol Sport TV, who also does the scores on screen at halftime? Someone else must have noticed this at home games?
  3. Callum O'Dowda

    This. Reminds me of Joe Bryan in that sense. It's taken Joe a couple of seasons, but now he's excelling at this level.
  4. Tomlin to Cardiff - CONFIRMED

    I read this as he was available for loan. The thing is Tomlin still had substantial market value for a club like us, which would have depreciated rapidly by the end of a season long loan. I assume that's why they were made to dig extra deep to secure a loan, so ended up buying him in the end. Sounds like we've recouped most if not all the transfer fee for someone who didn't quite fit into our way of playing. Fantastic player to watch at times, and a little sad to see him leave, but seems like good business.
  5. Tomlin to Cardiff - CONFIRMED

    Quote from Colin: "It's funny how things work. You think you've lost a player and you're disappointed," Warnock added. "And out of the blue your number one target becomes available. That's fate at times and let's hope they've played us a good hand. "Although Jonny Hayes was top of my list, he was more of a wide player. This player (Tomlin) specialises in that middle area, creating something for our wide players and strikers. "I've been looking at certain areas and certain players because we need goals. We're a difficult side to play against, but you still need a player who can unlock the door and get the you the three points. "He was top of my list at one stage. But I didn't think we'd be able to get him from Bristol City at the time. "We were going to have to pay a substantial loan fee for him. But in the end I don't think Bristol City fancied that idea, so Mehmet (Dalman) decided to go in and buy him." He's not available, then he suddenly is. We surely have some sort of replacement lined up?
  6. Leeds Away Beamback

    If there's beamback, would there also be a chance of a stream on Kodi?
  7. What next for DC

    Now we have him back, I'm hoping he's going to whip some quality balls in for Tammy, Taylor and Duric to feed off!
  8. Luke Ayling

    I think this could have been a major factor. Im in amongst a lot of Yeovil fans where I live, and I've heard he wasn't the most mature of characters whilst at Huish Park, and although he wasn't the main culprit, they weren't surprised at all to hear he was involved in that Cheltenham incident. I know Matthews was likely to be first choice RB, but with Taylor Moore not ready, and Ekstrand a gamble on his sick note history, Ayling was the only one who could play in a back 3, or even fill in at centre half. Certainly a better option than Matthews regarding the Reading home game. I'd have thought LJ would've wanted to keep hold of him. Half decent money came in, and it was done and dusted very quickly, so maybe an ulterior motive behind it.
  9. Open Letter to The Players

    Thank you George. Sorry to hear the news by the way. Kind Regards Mr W Wallace

    "Freeeeedom!"
  11. When your two highest paid players complain...

    Fantastic. Everyone looks for a reason for failure, so someone conjures a conspiracy theory, which only creates more divide and acts as a catalyst for even more failure. I've a theory which probably has more legs than this one. Approximately 70 mins after Bristol City Football Club take the field, an invisible sphincter fairy appears, and steals all the players sphincters. Even though they try hard for the remainder of the game, inevitably they can't prevent their a**ehole from falling out. Now, most of the preparation time for the following match, is solely focused on collectively repairing all the players sphincters. Knowing the fairy will undoubtedly return, the coaches devise a fairy repellent (something the fairy is allergic to, maybe garlic, or perhaps peanut butter), and apply it to every sphincter the day before match day. Unfortunely this particular fairy is a hardy little b*****d, and thus far hasn't been deterred from its wicked ways. However, one day an effective repellent will be devised, we will gain 3 points, and more importantly the sphincter fairy will be gone forevermore... It's a crazy thought I know, but you try telling a squad as young as ours that fairies don't exist.
  12. Winning ugly.

    Already giving the dodgy penalty might have had something to do with their leniency. From where I was sat from (W12 Lansdown Stand), there may have been late contact for the penalty, but the ball was in row Z of the Atyeo by that time, so was a little surprised it was given. We had a shocker given against us last week. Swings and roundabouts.
  13. Kodija - Departs for 11 Million (Merged)

    I can picture it. The usual family roast at the Lansdowns last Sunday.. Jon: Dad, I'm sorry to say that Kodjia definitely wants to leave. We've received a £10m bid from Hull, and a £15m bid from Villa. I'd imagine he'll choose Villa as its more financially viable for him, and to be honest...it's by far the best option financially for the club as well. Steve: For **** sake son, did you not hear what I said on the radio last month!? I don't care if it's gonna cost us £5 million. His only option is Hull, and if doesn't want to go there, then he'll just have to rot in the reserves until another Premiership club comes in for him, or until his contract runs out. Crikey, have I not taught you anything boy. I mean whatever will the fans think of me!? I can't believe our owner lied to us? Get a grip some people.
  14. Stuart Pearce

    Some geezer wanted 2.5 (6/4) on betfair for Pearce to be named next manager. My 75 against this 50 he won't be. Surely we have better options...
  15. Steve Clarke

    Forgot to say I also thought Reading were impressive when they beat us at the Gate earlier in the season. The more I think about it, the more I think it could be a possibility. So much so I've just had £10 @ 25-1 on betfair sports book, and they have already trimmed the price in to 18-1. Goes to show how little money you need to stake to move prices in an unpopular market.
