  1. If you are going to make up words you should at least spell them correctly. I'm not sure how you and the ref knew that Brownhill wasn't seriously injured. The tackle was a proper leg (ankle) breaker. I thought the Bryan foul was more debatable but looked like a foul only having seen it once. As per usual, our midfield backed off and then a soft shot went past Fielding (again).
  2. So, to be clear, you are saying that the club losing a game is not wanting the club to fail. How many games does that count for. Let's say the club lose 2 games in a row so that means LJ gets the sack, is that OK? What about 10 games in a row? Note that we know what kind of woman you are, now we are just negotiating the price.
  3. I guess you are sick of that Marina what with it being Harry's stand and all. What's that? Acceptable type of nepotism. Gotcha! Just as countless years of Lge 1 and 2 were the acceptable type of failure.
  4. Problem is that Norwich are very good at home. Someone please make it end...
  5. So, in summary, Jee Lohnson Out!
  6. I'm thick. What on earth are you on about?
  7. "Young" brings a freshness and ability to re-evaluate standard practices that an "old dog" won't do. I don't know if he will get better but i suspect he will. I like Johnson as he comes across as an intelligent man willing to learn. A "Holloway" or "Pardew" or "Allardyce" is unlikely to change their ways. Someone who has a passion for their work will perform far better than someone who doesn't. I suspect Johnson has a deep affection for City with us being the location of his best footballing years. I guess he was being serious. The fact that you can only say "Are you actually being serious" rather makes his point. I would add 1 extra to @1bristolcitylist 5. Johnson is not Sean O'Driscoll. However bad things get, we all should never forget that.
  8. Especially when you consider that being 2-0 up with 15 minutes to go is no guarantee of a victory.
  9. In fairness to the OTIB Mods, if, over the phone, I heard someone say "And finally, I want my handle to be 'One Team in Cayman'", I think I might have misheard it, especially with a bit of crackle and hiss.
  10. Yes please. Retype it. [I'm assuming no charge is made for this service]
  11. That's much better than the piles excuse. Thanks!
  12. Sitting in the South Stand, I get an uninterrupted view of the pitch. Now, I've spent 30 years bobbing and weaving in my seat to see past the (tall,always tall) guy in front of me. I maintain the same body swerves, out of habit, even though they aren't needed now. Makes me look a right charlie. Any chance Bristol Sport could scrunch the rows up together? No chance! They never listen.
  13. That's a great idea. The videos could be shared with referees also! I like the re-use suggestion. Perhaps they (the refereeing body) could use some of the high profile pundits like Savage, Lawrenson etc. to make the videos. Then they'd know they've already ticked off one set of people who don't seem to know the rules ("..not a foul because he took the ball first...", "...he's entitled to go down there...").
  14. Well, whilst we are all debating the rules of the game can anyone tell me if the 6-second rule still applies? It seems that Frank takes about 40 seconds to get rid of the ball...
  15. We had another outburst of outrage from the crowd last night when the Huddersfield defender clearly passed the ball back to the goalie. Foul! I must admit to sitting smugly thinking "doesn't everyone know the rules"? Well, I didn't last year when exactly the same thing happened. I was up and shouting at the ref. Then someone came on here and explained that "above the knee" is now OK [I think! But that's the point of the post...] I remember 2 years of all of us screeching at the linesman whenever a player placed the ball just outside the triangle at a corner. Then, someone on here explained that it's OK as long as any part of the ball is over the line. And, earlier in the season, Tammy was given offside inside his own half!! Doesn't the ref know the rules? Then someone on here pointed out that the offence is given where the player touches the ball, not where the offside occurred. UtOh, OK (sorry ref). Firstly, why don't we get the club to provide a couple of pages, in the first match programme, when major rules are changed? Perhaps they could also throughout the season put the wording for different rules on the screens before the game. This might at least help Tammy and Flint. Secondly, why on earth has FIFA changed all these rules? It makes intuitive, natural sense to say the ball must be entirely enclosed within the triangle at a corner? Surely, it makes sense to say that offside is given from the place of the offence? And, the pass back is OK with chest and head but otherwise not. What advantage has football gained from these rule changes? I suggest refs are getting unfairly criticised because FIFA are making stupid, pointless amendments.
