  1. Interesting idea. When he dropped out of the squad that seemed a particularly odd decision (injury time aside). Through the middle of the season (when we were shipping goals) it would have been dangerous to have him on the bench as that would have put even more pressure on a beleaguered Lee Johnson - selecting him but not playing him. But, I didn't think we were in a perilous financial situation where appearance related payments would hurt us - unless it was an absurd clause/charge. Would really like to see him back in the starting 11. He didn't do much wrong in the games I saw him play.
  2. The shadow from this (dated) aerial photo illustrates it pretty perfectly:
  3. When you look at corner of the Atyeo where it doesn't quite meet the media centre, it's clear that it was designed, approved and built to avoid a legal wrangle. The stand loses a few rows at that back corner in a staggered fashion to maintain a minimum distance to the houses behind (they aren't parallel with the stand). If the club were prepared to face the issue of compensation with the residents then there is plenty of room to build a south stand replica. If I lived in that terrace and was offered £100k or more to have a wall closer to my back garden fence, I would take the money in a heartbeat - it's not like they've got a great view at the moment.
  4. I presume his loan at Plymouth has officially ended but maybe they'll want him again next season. I could see us selling him for a small profit this summer. He looked pretty popular with the Home Park faithful when he was fit enough to play. But two goals in total last season....eight of their players scored more goals than him.
  5. He'll probably get a hatrick! After watching the recent clips of him playing in the Stockholm derby, I think City should not stop receiving criticism for signing him. He definitely looks a prospect albeit not easy to judge the standard of the teams in Sweden. If he comes back to us during the summer, I hope the club concentrate on getting him more settled in Bristol. When Kodjia was the only French player at the club, I'm certain we signed Paul Garita to give him some off the pitch support. If I was running the playing side of things, I would speak to Engvall about prospects in the Swedish league - especially players he knows and who could do a job for us (right back?!) History shows that teams with players who form a strong unit are the more likely to fight for the club. Look at our Scottish contingent in the 70s/80s. There would be no harm in having a couple of Swedish players in our squad.
  6. And Mark Cooper has been their most successful manager for years. Great decision these big name appointments.
  7. For City, Tomo had all the skill in the world but lacked trust in his teammates. Far too many performances where he dropped deep to collect the ball and then attempted to beat five players. When he inevitably lost possession it often hurt us because he was in a place where we didn't need or expect to surrender the ball. Lee, thanks for the good performances and glimpses of brilliance (especially at the end of 15/16). Don't do a 'Jet' and waste the amazing talent you have.
  8. Wasn't there a story that Tiny Penis signed players from his previous clubs knowing that he would receive a percentage of the sell-on that the the selling club would then owe him? Screwing both clubs with one transaction.
  9. Ouch! They'll be after you for that, when they get fed up with their new messiah owner (about 3 weeks into the new season).
  10. Ha ha ha, "Nottingham". Does his ambition include taking Notts County to the Premier League as well? Way to endear yourself....start off by calling your new club a name that the fans would never use!
  11. I know he knew you knew.
  12. Tammy already had it all before he came to us. We gave him a great platform to launch a mega-bucks career (hopefully) but you can tell he's been brought up the right way! I'm just relieved we didn't ruin him!! For those suggesting Sam Baldock, he singlehandedly gave the Championship to Newcastle with missed goal scoring opportunities at the weekend. Never look back.
  13. Although they didn't play together today. And when they did, we beat Rotherham.
  14. Say what you want, of course. But I don't think us football fans have done anything to line Steve Lansdown's pockets.
  15. Nice one! @Tim S Will be really good to hear Elbow again I can't remember looking forward to game this much since the end of the last promotion season.
