  1. Past hour
  2. Looks like the Cumberland Basin. Do you know the difference between a buffalo and a bison ? You can’t wash your hands in a Buffalo.
  3. Your not suggesting Freeman is on Bannan's level surely?
  4. It had abut three different titles in the space of two minuets !
  5. I have mentioned in another post that Ajax have finally realised that they needed experienced heads to help out their talented youngsters and they are now reaping the benefits. Age has nothing to do with skill but experience has a helluva lot to do with maximising skill .
  6. Almost a full season of watching Jack Hunt.... we can do a lot better. Hope he is back-up to a much better right back next season
  7. https://www.theguardian.com/football/ng-interactive/2019/apr/23/david-squires-on-wayne-hennessey-and-the-nazis
  8. not sure what we've thrown away? Relegation? Yep, threw that away well and proper. Well done LJ and the lads. I'm guessing the belters and bellends we have that are moaning about us not going up in May, are the same belters and bellends who thought we were going down in December.
  9. Who would have thought that one day on a football forum supporters would be discussing rhetorical questions ? I love OTIB.
  10. Hi mate, I don't think @AshtonPark is trying to tie himself in knots. As a Bristolian who's recently moved to Wales, I sympathise with a lot of what he's saying and think I might be able to explain it a tad clearer. If a Welsh person approaches me and calls me a 'wurzel', 'another bl00dy Bristolian stealing our houses' or quite simply an 'English c***' this would be viewed upon as simply part and parcel of inter-UK rivalry, tribalist 'banter' of which the Police, more than likely, have little interest in following up on such grounds. Now, take the above insults, which I have received since moving across the bridge, and change the words Bristolian/English, to 'Black', 'Pakistani' etc. You'd have 3 squad cars and a helicopter overhead within seconds, followed by the press and a well publicized crown prosecution trial.
  11. Today
  12. I wouldn’t drop Pack but I would give him more help by playing Walsh who can take more of the play making load. I also think Walsh should be allowed to play further forward than Brownhill; Walsh has a good forward passing range. Personally v Derby I would go 4-3-1-2. Pack, Brownhill and Walsh in midfield. Palmer in a roving role behind Fam and Weimann.
  13. Yeah sells slowed right down. The hardcore have brought who’d of gone anyway imo the rest are awaiting Saturdays result
  14. The same fixation that some have to state the obvious I reckon!
  15. Again in thread I posted about a team playing that is offensively conservative and the emphasis on the full backs is on defending v getting forward. It is not necessarily what I would want to watch but given the squad, transfer windows it is what I suggested would get results by being tighter defensively. I could argue that the second goal City conceded yesterday was due to too much change. Numerous players were at fault or unsure of their roles. A ball has travelled forty metres in the air and nobody even attempts to put a forehead on it. The team collectively are not high, low or compact. Error as a result of change is predictable, Mr Johnson has chosen to alter the teams shape.
  16. It's not necessarily going to the wire. If we lose to derby we'll be 4pts adrift of them and our hopes will be all but dashed. The Derby game is about keeping our chances alive.
  17. He said ‘ psychological ‘ issues with the knee. As I understand it , meaning , perhaps he doesn’t want to push it too hard in rehabilitation and risk it breaking down again or it is a smokescreen because he is not going to feature for the first team again if he doesn’t sign his new contract offer.
  18. As has been mentioned above, many people don’t take their seats until the last minute. This isn’t surprising as the concourse and fans village are more interesting if you want to talk to fellow supporters. To get people to get to their seat early we need something interesting pre-match, such as Monkey Tennis
  19. His loan history is interesting and may explain why he mistakes some of his mistakes. If he was / is regarded as a first team player, why wasn’t he on loan to a League 1 or 2 club last season. I know he’s relatively young but he would have progressed more if he’d had a few games in League 1 or 2
  20. Well, sending Millwall down a start!
  21. Billy McNeill the Celtic legend has passed away aged 79 I read earlier https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/41685748
  22. She ceratinly seemed pissed Jon has a claim to the throne. That was her first thought, not "oh i've been shagging my nephew, that's gross".
  23. I think it’s down to a lack of real quality. We need our players to be at their maximum week in week out to compete in this league. Other teams don’t necessarily need the same from their players and can afford 75% from players of real proven quality. We have a fairly young side who are improving, but they lack experience of getting to and playing in the Premier League. Is anyone really surprised that we have now dropped out of the playoffs? It was a very tall order to dispatch so many quality teams and remain firmly in the playoffs. I also agree with others that we suffer most in the middle of the park. We lack someone who is experienced, a real battler and creative outlet. From the games I have seen we have rarely dictated in the middle. We can ping it around in defence and get forward down the flanks, but we are often second to the ball in the middle of the park or jockeying. We lack physical strength. If we make the playoffs then that would be a marvellous achievement, but realistically we have over-achieved with the squad we have and we are too reliant on certain players and when you look at the bench we don’t have any like for like options. We’re not going down though so that is a relief.
  24. If only it was live on sky. We seem to turn up more often than not when the spotlight is on at AG.
  25. Totally agree. What could possibly go wrong?
