  1. Past hour
  2. Cant see Lansdown doing that, besides who'd buy 'em?
  3. Reminds me of Sheffield United last game of season in 89 .give them block a Of the dolman and naff all stewards all of a sudden no away fans in the dolman ...
  4. Correct, but respect of the referee is a straight line influence from professional football down. As parents/coaches we absolutely encourage respect, but having three boys who have played up through junior football, it’s is the actions of the professionals that has by far the greatest influence on the kids.
  5. During 1883 there was a Bristol Rover Bicycle Club from Stapleton, even before Eastville Rovers, so in 1899 they were named after a cycling club.
  6. I'm still salty. However a regular on the Wuss forum who likes his stats has put up finishing positions IF current form from the previous 5 is maintained; Exeter 81 Saracens 74 Gloucester 64 Harlequins 62 Saints 52 Bath 50 Sale 49 Bristol 46 Wasps 43 Warriors 41 Falcons 39 Tigers 38 Doubt it would happen but I would giggle and expect no relegation to arrive at the last minute. What's interesting to me is that Rugby Pass' RPI had a similar projection on form before the break (Bris were 6th then though after the Northampton win). Maybe that will cheer some up.
  7. Yep your right, didn't see that one
  8. Walked out of the ground yesterday feeling like the world had ended! Gutted. And then for Newcastle to win as well.
  9. It will be very interesting to see how this develops with this Worcester supporter. Takes me back to my point earlier in the thread, how police / courts treat football fans differently
  10. Football isn't grown-up enough to implement anything in the game that will promote integrity.
  11. The real irony, as I see it, is this.... Wimbledon were a financially struggling club with woeful levels of support. Against ALL odds they rose to the top level of the English game and even won the nations showpiece domestic cup. Even after that glorious achievement, they used to get levels of support that would even embarrass the Gas. Inevitably, eventually, they spiralled into financial oblivion and began to drop back down the football pyramid. At that point, an entrepreneur cited the idea of taking over that club but felt they would have a far better chance of sustainability if based elsewhere. Leaving the spiritual base that failed to sufficiently support the old “Dons” and move the club to the rapidly growing catchment area of Milton Keynes, with the promise of a wonderful stadium, eventually. Until that point they battled on in a not fit for purpose hockey stadium, whilst the owner kept his promise of delivering a new stadium. Rovers on the other hand are actively looking to uproot from their spiritual home City and move beyond the county boarders, because apparently, Bristol has no development options (apart, of course, from the vast delelopment projects, regeneration and abundance of unused spaces) yet nobody wants to have them. Despite this they continue to look to move away to where they can obtain land on the cheap. Which they continue to struggle to obtain. so, MK Dons have carried out a plan & vision, enhanced their facilities and increased the numbers of their support, yet are ridiculed as a “franchise” whereas Rovers hope to do the same thing, but are some sort of ambitious heroes..?!
  12. This thread should probably be closed.
  13. Today
  14. A paedophile is someone sexually attracted to children.....how ever much you want to want to dress it down a 15 year old is a child. So it's completely correct to call him this. A 28 year old male shouldn't be grooming, kissing or touching a 15 year old child.
  15. It's for all premiership games, home and away. So for instance, when Worcester had a try disallowed yesterday I heard the whole discussion between referee and TMO. It's also interesting to hear the TMO in the referees war all the time, telling him when teams are offside or if its a forward pass etc
  16. Every Scottish footballer or fan desperately want to beat England. The players all raise their game and play with a heady passion that is missing in other games they play. That game was a one off for that reason.
  17. Yes, could well be. They were certainly bellends but how it was policed and the numbers and types of stewards too- seems inconceivably poor. Throw in the 200 late arrivals...? Almost as if they 'let' it happen. Best time to prevent trouble is before it begins. Won't always work but it gives you the best possible chance. Through cockup or conspiracy they failed this aspect big time here. By happy coincidence, more police at the football?
  18. Norn Iron

    Alan Walsh

    Or as we called it, The Walshy Shuffle!
  19. Bloody stalkers! By the way his son Stuart is quite active on social media and can be found at the skate board shop on West Hill (another stalker! )
  20. The guy is a scumbag and in no way am I defending him but he isn't a paedophile, he is a sex offendeer. Paedophile are attracted to pre-pubescent forms. Johnsons victim was a teenager. It does not make the crime more palatable, but does reflect society attitude in seeing all offences of this type as the same.
  21. Just thirty miles or so ought to do it. None of their `loyal and true` fans would be arsed to travel that far so crowds would plummet to sub 3k and they`d fold in no time. Bring it on I say.
  22. Don’t think they did. The only thing FIFA trialled from rugby was the 10 yard rule. That died a death....
  23. It's about who can make the worst/ lame / immature joke that gets them as many likes as possible. Cringe.
  24. Player: Ref , what would you do if I called you a *** ? Ref: I'd send you off . Player : What if I only thought it ? Ref: Well , I couldn't do anything for something you're thinking. Player : I think you're a *** !
  25. For games at the Gate ? That would be interesting, I don't go often but that could help things. Went for the first time against Worcester a couple of years ago, the game where Bristol had a player sent off. Replay on the screen , still debated where I was but at last you can understand what's going on a little more.
  26. I hate the idea of MK style franchise clubs but I’ll make an exception if the 15ers ever want to bugger off a few hundred miles away.
  27. That’s a bit harsh, I was at Plymouth with a working day of 0700-2200hrs!
