  1. Gas in the next round anyone?

    No thanks, don't need the injuries we'd undoubtedly pick up smashing those non league dog fiddling cloggers.
  2. Wow, great to see Eliasson get on the scoresheet. Well done LJ and City! Bit of a selection dilemna for Friday now.
  3. Well done Bobby He's having a storming start to the season in front of goal.
  4. Seems the kind of selection which puts us in a no lose situation. Away against a Prem side with 9 changes and several youngsters - anything other than a thrashing is probably an achievement. It will be good experience for Hinds, Vyner, Eliasson and Kelly, maybe they can produce a bit of a turn up. Also intrigued to see how an experienced central midfield pair works.
  5. Barriers in the Winterstoke Rd car park

    If' you're ever taken to court for this it will be through the small claims court likely the automated processing centre in Northampton. You can log in to https://www.moneyclaim.gov.uk and file an acknowledgement of service and then a defence without having to pay anything. Your defence can basically cite the lack of signage, the fees being excessive and lots of other things. Defended cases where the sum claimed is less than several hundred pounds are very unlikely to be economical to contest because it goes from being automatic to requiring an actual solicitor, but the fees they can charge for solicitors are capped at well below what they are likely to cost. The claimant will often withdraw. If you've got a bill for thousands, yeah they probably will go for it.

    The key is that nobody except the police and the council can issue fines. Traffic wardens are police employees and can issue fines but don't deal with private car parks. I assumed Robbored meant parking attendant. Private companies cannot impose fines or penalties. All a private company running a car park can do is send you a bill for parking charges. They will try and make it look threatening and like a penalty, in particular by telling you it will double if you do not pay up quickly. If there was very clear signage you could be deemed to have entered into a contract by parking there if taken to court for it. They almost never do that though as it is not economical and extremely easy to defend.
  7. Man City v Everton

    He definitely touches Aguero before he takes the ball, only slightly but it's clear on the replay. It doesn't matter though. He doesn't even have to touch the player for it to be a bookable foul. Them's the rules.
  8. What does Lansdown see that most of us can't ?

    Once he has developed enough range...
  9. Man City v Everton

    Whether or not he takes the ball has no bearing on it being a foul or a booking. It was the correct decision, he hit the player with his right leg before he hit the ball and his left leg after, the speed he was moving at there was a clear risk of injury so it was excessive force and a really stupid thing to do in the middle of the park under no pressure having been booked already. Aguero should be sanctioned for exaggerating too.
  10. Barriers in the Winterstoke Rd car park

    Seems rather a churlish thing to whine about when you're getting free tickets. I doubt very much paying an employee is cheaper than putting barriers in, as evidenced by just about every other car park in the entire world.
  11. Barriers in the Winterstoke Rd car park

    I know the senior reds are, well, senior but why on earth would anybody hire a full time employee to look after a couple of hundred car parking spaces in this day and age? What a waste of money. Surely everyone driving a car has used a ticket machine before? It won't deter anyone using the cafe as they'll just get their ticket endorsed.
  12. What does Lansdown see that most of us can't ?

    Not sure I agree with that. SL clearly has little insight into the squad but the impression he gave was that he was talking about everyone. Flint may not have been so fed up when he signed, he may have assumed LJ would be gone soon anyway, and he may have assumed he was getting a whacking pay rise and could leave any time anyway. There's little reason not to sign a bigger contract. Happy to see a counter example but I don't think there are many clubs that bomb out expensive signings at the rate we have in the last few years. Nobody is disputing why he's manager, that's obvious. It's debating the merits of the view SL clearly holds. At the moment I think he's plain wrong, again, and it's just about how long it will take him to realise. And it's far from few people, IMO. There are very few who actually think he's the right man for the job, perhaps a majority who think we're stuck with him anyway so we may as well shut up and a substantial minority who think he's got to go. I waver between the latter two myself but as time drags on with no progress it only goes one way.
  13. Trouble vs Wall!!!!!!!!??????

    Yeah and I'd have some sympathy with that because it's highly annoying being delayed because 1% of a group are tits, but from a rights perspective it doesn't make any difference whether you're kettled in the street or in a nice safe stadium with toilets and facilities.
