  1. Past hour
  2. DOF at a club can mean so many different things, depending on the Club. And some Clubs have a few few DOF...not just one. The main point of a DOF is to be the go between. From Coach to Board. Within our own Club, right now, we have a very healthy environment, where Coaches, CEO and Board members and owner can all speak freely with one another. LJ and all his coaching staff concentrate on the footballing side of things. MA as CEO acts as go between and deals with everything financial...budgets, contracts, negotiations etc. He's also a Board member...which as a go between is unusual imo. The Club has decided on its structure and how it will run, both financially and in recruitment, type of player 'dna', and to extent a way of playing. I still think we are evolving. Still finding our way a little. So things change. It will change even further if we were to get promotion. Then further if relegated or established. Continual tweeks depending on circumstance. With a Dof...you need someone totally compliant, with an understanding and good relationship with board, owner, it's fan base and traditions of Club. The ideal scenario imo, is that we stuck with LJ... hopefully had seasons ahead together...gaining Promotion and becoming established. If it became stale...who better to become Dofs than LJ and BT. Keeping 'our way' going...with someone else coming in as coach. Just a thought
  3. Yeah it's the UEFA rules. They're two independent codes of conduct but its just that the UEFA one is mainly administered by the PL (who have no actual say in the rules themselves).
  4. To be honest that does make sense to me. I've noticed some keepers pull down on the bar, giving it a pretty signifcant wobble. It probably moves up and down by at least 2-3cm on some occasions. If a penalty taker was to hit the bar on its downward wobble, it could be the difference between bar and in, and bar and out. A tiny and unlikely margin I know, but a margin nonetheless!
  5. Didn't see this one, thanks for sharing
  6. I mean its not as if they have we've had 5 years of year on year progress (the only team in the football league to do so). It's not as if they have made around £30m on transfer fees. I mean, what a pair of idiots!!
  7. Ha but a reprieve for Colin. Or Bryan (not too bad granted). Would provide a fair solution though and denial of promotion the ultimate realistic punishment. One bit I don't quite get in UEFA FFP PL limit split. PL loss limit the aforementioned £35m plus costs. UEFA loss limit is quite a bit lower IIRC. Which one takes precedence for obtaining a European license- UEFA I assume.
  8. It would be kind of ironic if someone registered the colony field as a town village green, now THAT would be karma!
  9. Sorry, I do agree he’s involved/oversees each process, but I don’t think it’s him that is identifying players for particular positions, so for people to claim we need to judge HIM on the in signings is wrong imo. I would judge him on if we get turned down by lots of players or over spend on players, but not who the particular players are or if they are not very good once they sign as that is down to LJ coaches and scouting team. Similarly I wouldn’t blame LJ if we spent £8m on a player when if negotiated properly we could have got them for £6m as that would be MAs area.
  10. Couldn't agree more. I like him, and I'd like him to stay, but if he can't sign a contract right now he needs to go, and ideally before the rest of the lads come back from holiday.
  11. One thing that you might find slightly interesting is that the UEFA have their FFP rules which are different to the Premier League (as you're aware). UEFA sets the rules and each nation has a licensing body, which is the Premier League in England. Any team that wishes to compete in a European competition has to submit a number of reports through the UEFA portal to show that they are in compliance with these rules. All clubs are encouraged to submit these documents to UEFA regardless of their league position but in reality it would only be beneficial for any clubs with a shot of getting into CL/EL in April. These documents are submitted through the portal but are actually detail reviewed and audited by the Premier League (or whoever the local licensing body is). If the test is passed, the club are then issued with the UEFA license. If there are any issues, such as Man City/PSG, UEFA will then step in.
  12. Do wonder whether we've signed someone and they'll announce a couple of hours before the interview to drum up interest 'hear more when Johnson is on BBC Bristol later' sort of thing.
  13. No they got fined for breaking FFP rules, they took the gamble they'd make the premier league then screw the consequences because they did. If they had stayed down it would be a very different story.
  14. Meeeeeehhhhhhhhhhhhhhh D&D ****** over the series by wanting to move on before the start of series 7 when they got asked to do Star Wars, HBO and GRRM wanted 10 episode seasons (which HBO was willing to fund) but D&D wanted done asap but they were the ones with the exclusive rights so they would be the ones doing it, they said they only had content for shortened seasons so we got shortened seasons.
  15. one flaw with that argument, they weren`t always in the prem....., how did they get there in the first place, did they sell their best players to do so, if they did they would of had to buy better players than they sold or had a better manager and chairman who wanted it more?
  16. In terms of quality it's miles behind obviously but you do get some good watchable games in the FL apart from that Sunderland v Pompey game which was one of the worst games I have ever seen!
  17. Alright GT, I'll wait till later to tell you...
  18. Does anyone seriously think we are smaller club than Barnsley
  19. O'Dowda's goal at Norwich wasn't as good as people make out. Kodjia is the best player I've seen play for City in the past 20 years. Heaton was nothing more than an average keeper for us. Overrated by many because of what he's gone on to achieve since. Can't believe some people say he was better than Basso.
  20. If I was him I would be pondering Wolves- as competition at minimum for Jonny. If I was Wolves I would be thinking about him too as Wing backs an area they need more depth in. Or Sheffield United with their back 3 system, him as a wing back could be quite good IMO. I hope not though, but I have a bad feeling we won't be signing him this summer...
  21. FWIW, historic League table I saw a couple of years ago shows us above Barnsley. One place though- that will have improved the last couple of seasons and I think we are bigger than Barnsley but club size can be subjective.
  22. How does that happen then, or does it mean when a player is jumping?
  23. Thanks for that LJ but the BBC probably want you to wait until later to explain this stuff
  24. I think the way you create equality is to cut out the weeds and separate them from the roots for good.
