  1. Those Millwall fans might inflict thousands of pounds of improvement on the mem
  2. I dont care
  3. The language barrier and current political climate are certainly the 2 biggest issues. Though most of the higher up clubs have at least one player with experience in the premier league which would help with one of those slightly. Fenerbache have van Persie, Eminike and Jermain Lens Basaksehir only have Adebayor, but are on a club on a huge upwards trend despite being thrust into the unknown (they had an agreement with the council to rent the stadium, were struggling, possibly relegated when the council told them to find a new ground. Now they are second in the league, own their own ground, attendances up a massive amount and the council are begging them to move back). A few years ago they were struggling to hit 100 in attendance, now they sell out just under 18,000. Those numbers dropped hugely when the council threw them out, but even before that I think they only got 2-3000 in an 80k stadium. Germany would certainly be a preferable option, but outside of Germany/Spain/Italy then Turkey wouldnt be a bad option. Though iirc there was a poster on here who was Tammys driving instructor (or something along those lines) who said Tammy has already ruled out going to Galatasaray. There are some really good players in Turkey, but most at the end of their careers
  4. What if we won with that side? They can hardly say "that team wasnt good enough" if you turn a team over
  5. Turkish league is far stronger than the Scottish one. In the scheme of things in Europe its not amazing, certainly worse than the German/Spanish/Italian, but wouldnt be far behind the next strongest ones
  6. The atmosphere is incredible though! Went to a Galatasaray game circa 2011. Non stop bouncing around the ground, everyones arms around peoples shoulders- like a poznan facing the pitch for 90 minutes. After the game there were Fenerbache fans celebrating because Galatasaray drew against a mid table side! The ground (the old Ali Sami Yen) had a cauldron in each corner which had pyro before the game and the Gala 'Keeper almost jumped into the crowd trying to hype them up (as if it was needed) when his name was called out. Definitely plan on going to another game over there once the political situation calms down a bit
  7. I dont think so, but I can remember Dave L (I think, maybe someone else who had a role with the club) saying about the website deal and time remaing in a response to a thread about how shite the layout was (this was about 2-3 years ago now) and I got the impression the club are waiting for it to end and will make more effort with the new one (I got a feeling it might just all be on the Bristol Sport one or we will see the same layout for the City website). Doesnt excuse the state of the current one mind
  8. It will be shown, just seen their tweet
  9. I do think that system can be better, if implemented properly. A mini league perhaps Thankfully not!
  10. The site. Its a contractual one all clubs outside the prem have*. The deal/contract ends soon (this season?) so we wont be tied into it after that. *clubs that were in the Prem, like Villa, dont have to use it because they werent in the 2nd-4th division at the time. Not sure if teams that got promoted were able to change the site early.
  11. Apparently I used to cry every time we conceded, bare in mind my first few seasons were 97-98ish!
  12. Farm made a vast amount of money (for that level) on their cup runs last season. Though after they lost in the quarter final of the FA Vase their season petered out.
  13. That is an incredibly simple one He is, largely, using the players who helped avoid relegation last season. He can "trust" them to do the job. The others being picked have performed consistently. The ones being left out are, in the main, not his signing, young, or lost their place through injury.
  14. After he said "Europa League" he explicetly stated he wasnt being serious. He did say he thought it could happen, but even so, he had outright said that it was a joke Also dont see the issue with him making a comment in jest when the entire evening had a very casual feel and there had been funny stories about the players and such before hand, from each of the coaches of each team in attendance
  15. I never suggested there was anything harmful in what you put, or that Cotterill is out of his depth. I just don't think he was the right person for them to bring in. As for Redknapp- utter fraud who only does a good job when he has big money to spend/waste
