  1. and we got him cheap.. and we got him cheap......
  2. You've forgotten the twins, Kevin and Kev Rougier
  3. I've rung up before and they have reset my password there and then for me
  4. Do you know something going on or is it just rumour? please PM me if there really is something
  5. Give them a ring, I'm sure you'd be able to transfer up there if you wanted to.
  6. I would imagine that the friendship, if it really existed to that extent, would indeed have been a factor in both his appointment and retention. This doesn't make LJ a bad manager, SL has faith in him and only time will tell if that is misplaced or not. In fact, the friendship having an influence on the retention rather than sacking, could turn out to be one of the best things to have ever happened to us if that faith is proved to be worthwhile. Only time will tell for sure....
  7. The feeling of disconnection from the club is something I went through a few years ago, around the time that Bristol Sport first appeared. I was very critical on here around that time but now I look back I'm really not convinced that Bristol Sport was the reason for my disconnect. When I was younger/single the football was a huge part of my life, meeting friends at the pub, going to away games......but getting married, having kids etc. means that as time goes on it becomes less important. I had all this going on at the time and I suspect that that was a larger part of my feelings towards the club than the appearance of Bristol Sport. I obviously have no idea about other people's lives or their reasons but I am just saying that is what is was for me. I am now back with a ST after a few years of intermittent attendance at best, and am enjoying it again. I can even see the sense in the Bristol Sport model as a way of making the club (eventually) more successful.
  8. I'm pretty sure that hasn't been a club owner in history that would want the fans of their club booing and criticising, and SL is quite within his rights to suggest he doesn't like it. On the other hand, your right to do so has never been suppressed and people regularly do, it's all part of the healthy debate that goes on around the team.
  9. When exactly was this utopian fan driven ownership of Bristol City ever a reality? Yes, everyone chipped in and dragged the club out of the gutter in the period following '82, but this was because the club had no choice. It was on it's arse and desperately needed those fans to be an active part of the club to survive. The reality is, that both before and since that time, the supporters have had no real say in how the club is run. We have always been at the mercy and whims of whoever is running the club at the time. Fortunately for us City have always been run by fairly decent local people who want the best for the club, and Steve Lansdown is just the latest in a long line. I personally have no problem with people choosing to not attend any more if they aren't enjoying it, but to call it some kind of boycott is ridiculous. People come and go, it's the way it has always been. Just that people these days get to talk about it publicly on forums (or is it fora?) such as this, an option never really available in the past. If you were to go and look at the fanzines of the 80s and 90s you would find just as much bitching and moaning about the people in charge of the club then. The old gits sitting in the stand moaning about everything about the club, from the owners to the players, has been a caricature for years. I really don't think there's anything much different going on from what there always has been, apart from the fact that football in general is changing due to the amount of money sloshing around, forcing any club with ambition to put itself onto a more business footing than in the past. But that really isn't Steve Lansdowns fault, it's what has to be done. If anything he is bucking the trend by sticking with a manager he obviously has faith in and we will all hopefully reap the benefits of that over the next few seasons. If it all goes wrong and we end up having to sack Lee Johnson anyway, then dropping a division and starting over isn't anything new to anyone that has supported this club for more than 5 years or so. Season Ticket sales may be down a little on last season, but that is because another season of struggle has knocked some of the confidence out of the supporters. Even so, sales will still be the second highest ever seen at Ashton Gate and will soon rise again if we start to move up the table, which I'm sure is what we all hope will happen, even if some are predicting it won't.
  10. Yep, that half was shown as completely sold from day one
  11. I've also noticed that only half of S24 is on sale. There don't appear to be any tickets being sold in the half of the block closest to the singing section so it would appear there is going to be quite a large gap between the singers and the rest of the SS for some reason.
  12. I think the bold part may well be the reason. There will always be people who ARE silly about it.
  13. I know it's a common perception that the skilful players are also the most difficult to manage, but I've seen nothing, unsubstantiated rumours aside, to suggest that Lee Tomlin is in any way a disruptive influence. He even gave a public interview giving his full support to LJ at the height of the poor run, not sure how much more he can do apart from keeping his head down and keeping on working.
  14. Isn't that how a league works rather than luck? To win the league, you have 23 teams somehow worse than you. We currently have six teams somehow worse than us, though this can of course change over the last three games. The most likely outcome is we will end up more or less where we are now.
