Just watched it back on BBC breakfast and Dan Walker definitely says Mark Clemmit is doing a piece on us and why we have been so successful in the championship.

Imagine them doing a big review of us, our ambitions and a profile on our billionaire owner, getting all the fans excited. Only to find out out, a year down the line that he’s actually got no money, it’s all been a big misunderstanding, and we’re very likely to be heading into administration during the coming new year. 

That would be harsh, but very amusing for our local rivals..! 

Are you trying to break something to us gently, Steve?

That's bordering on the ridiculous, if you wrote a film script like that it would be thrown straight out, that wouldn't happen at any club surely........... :whistle:

Feature has been planned for a number of weeks but got postponed due to the United cup draw. The club will be having a high media profile this week

Imagine thinking we'd got the backing of a mega-rich family from the middle east to find out that painting the toilets and moving the club shop was the limit of their ambition #livingnightmare

My comment was tongue in cheek dao, in view of comments on the Man U thread.

Thought the item painted us in a decent light, apart from Lawro's ludicrous take on the motto on LJ's wall - probably says a lot about why he never made it as a manager!

Lawrenson needs to be out out to pasture. Painfully out of touch with the modern game.

Dan Walker should have asked Lawrenson to tell the footballing world about his success as a football league manage! :whistle:

Lawro's "sucesso" was undoubtedly achieved because when things went wrong it was always the players' fault.

Very little time to talk about the piece when they went back to the studio, and instead of talking about us on or off the field, they just talk about a quote on the wall in the background.

Makes BBC football coverage look tinpot.

Lawrenson is a grizzled old dinosaur who should be be put out to pasture ..............he is well past his sell by date, and should be given his pension and ushered away.  Why is he still employed?  He is a grumpy old C***    who  should retire.  Bitter and Pointless?

Can't watch on iplayer for some stupid reason. Anybody know why? Had to leave home at 12:30pm so couldn't watch it FFS 

Repeated on iPlayer from midnight. Think because it's extended with highlights from MOTD which has to be shown first.

Don't know the reasoning behind it, but the BBC can only show the program from midnight after the broadcast. It is also only available for 7 days rather than the usual 30 days.

What did he say?

After the little video of talking to the manager and players, this was on the wall behind LJ and the show host asked what the pundits thought of it and Mark Lawrenson just said "I think its a load of baloney"

I like Lawro, but I thought he was harsh on LJ.  My take would be that he recognises his responsibility to the players to:

  • analyse the opposition to understand their weaknesses,
  • prepare the players in terms a game plan and tactics to exploit them, and 
  • rehearse the game plan so the players can execute it on the day. 

Its a shared responsibility to get the job done.

He still "owes" Bristol a walk around in his underpants or nude (can't quite remember and really don't want to) as he said  when he was a local HTV pundit that he would do that if Richard Dryden (who we sold to Southampton around 94/95) was still playing in the premiership by the end of that season, which he was, and did quite well for the Saints.

Not particularly perturbed by what he said on FF as he has always been a footballing dinosaur, and I would actually have been more irritated if he had actually "got" what our club is all about.  He is totally out of his depth in the modern game and it makes me wonder what he has got over the BBC that they still employ him...

Probably because everyone else goes to Sky? Why go on the Beeb when you can get more money being on Sky.
