    They'd just have to buy the land off Taylor Wimpey first.
  2. City - Joint 3rd highest spenders compared to turnover

    Those figures were without the considerable revenue stream of the West Stand. Last seasons figures will be the interesting ones as that'll be spend versus turnover inclusive of a 20k average crowd and all the hospitality being full every week. FWIW I still think we'll be up near the top of that table this time next year given what we've spent, but we shall wait and see.

  4. CSF book (Merged)

    The last 15 minutes of Inside Out West on BBC One last night had a feature on a former City hooligan John Nation. Heard he followed Villa/England around Europe too before being banged up. He came out of prison and became a youth worker and looked after the likes of Banksy and Inkie at Barton Hill youth club. Now runs his own street art tours around Bristol... http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b097ywn5/inside-out-west-09102017 https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowUserReviews-g186220-d4080089-r474727222-Bristol_Street_Art_Tours-Bristol_England.html
  5. Ipswich match report: ridiculously easy

    Great report, Rob. I wholeheartedly agree with everything you say. Some of our football, and I mean proper passing football in the first half, was sublime. Even better, we weren't a one trick pony and mixed things up with a more direct approach at times that was equally effective. Ipswich could count themselves lucky to be only 2-1 down at HT. I was there with 3 neutrals today and all commented on how good Reid was. Been banging on about what a complete footballer he could be for some time and it's great to see him finally living up to his full potential. Some player we have on our hands.
  6. The third goal

    Was taking a few snaps on my phone, now that's what you call timing...
  7. Ipswich

    I thought we were outstanding for the first 20 minutes and outplayed you for most of the first half. Second, both teams reverted to a more direct style but all day I saw nothing from Ipswich that impressed me. I suppose you were well organised so will grind out results on that basis but still poor quality overall. Blaming the officials is a lame excuse, we were just a better side than you on the day and fully deserved the win at Portman Rd (finally).
  8. Ipswich forum

    I would be interested to know if Ipswich fans have seen a better team at Portman Road this season in the first half than us. Especially the first 20 minutes I thought we humiliated them, quite frankly. For 90 minutes they had no passing game to speak of, were lucky to come in at HT 2-1 down, and will not be top 6 come the end of the season playing like that.
  9. Saturday's Odds

    That truly is unfathomable odds. It's not like Ipswich are poor at home or we have some amazing away record either. They should 100% be favourites to win this game...very strange.
  10. 3,700 Leeds fans heading for the Gate on October 21st

    First sell-out at the 'new' AG if us and them are still up near the top? Should be really...

    Fists are a weapon too mate. Throwing a big right hand on someone who isn't defending themselves could have had devastating consequences. The same, if not worse, than a bottle.
  12. Lee Johnson dividing opinion on SWFC's Owlstalk

    I suspect all our managers feel the same spud, LJ (who has spent more than all of them put together ) included. Bit harsh to single out GJ. He actually got us promoted by spending pretty much sod all and his biggest signing of our most successful season in donkeys years was Trundle at £1m. If anything there was a school of thought that in the January transfer window that season we didn't spend enough (only £300k on Adebola) whereas our nearest rivals at the time Stoke City spent a few million and ended up getting promoted automatically. His other 'big money' signing was Maynard who can be considered a success as he scored about 50 goals for us making him one of our most successful strikers of all-time. GJ certainly preferred 'experience' over 'youth' though and long-term that will not be beneficial to a football club. In the end he just ran out of ideas I think as was demonstrated by the number of loan players he kept bringing in.
  13. Test Cricket

    Having just watched it again, it isn't even the lad who had the bottle who Stokes ends up attacking! The lad with the bottle has a black hoodie on and that's who Stokes initially jumps on but then he moved on to start whacking the lads mate who doesn't appear to throw a single punch the whole time and is instead backing away and seems to be trying to calm things down whilst Stokes continues to throw punches and eventually ko him. He'll surely get done for this and rightfully so IMO.
  14. Ipswich

    350 tickets sold? Surely that's not right. According to the ticketing web site we've sold nearly 750 which sounds about right.
  15. Test Cricket

    Yes, you can see the lad going to throw the bottle towards Stokes' mate but Stokes intervenes and starts fighting the lad. I think the problem is that after that there is a full 30 seconds of Stokes launching punches/kicks at the lad whilst he is backing away and throwing no punches. He has no right to claim self-defence at this point as the bottle is no longer in play. The court will just say at this point he should've walked away. He'll be off to the magistrates court and get a fine would be my guess and he won't be going to the Ashes.
