  1. Past hour
  2. Aah here we go, the new player to slag off now Diedhiou isn't playing. **** off down the R*vers.
  3. Fair enough: on reflection I actually don't disagree with you about much of that. As you will have gathered, I was quite pissed off when I wrote the original post. I've calmed down a bit now (a process helped considerably by a couple of fairly promising performances from Afobe). That said, I do stick with the view that whilst it may be accepted by many as par for the course in the modern game, certain aspects of Arsenal's behaviour don't sit comfortably with me and still seem, let's just say, pretty shabby as far as I'm concerned. You could, I suppose, put it like this: sometimes, it's not what's done, it's how it's done.
  4. Is it hard typing with your tongue wedged in your cheek like that?
  5. I'm glad you brought this up. I don't have a wife and have felt excluded from joining in. I was gonna start a separate thread about being discrimination. If it is this song, I really don't know what to make of her comment. If it was complaining about a song like 'Get your tits out for that lads' then that does belong in the bin.
  6. Quoted myself so I know whom I've picked but as I missed the Brum game because I have such a poor memory, I can now use my picks from the Leeds game? Defender - Baker (Moore sub) Midfield - Brownhill (Nagy sub) Striker - Fam (Antoine sub) Captain - Brownhill. Vice Capt - Baker Sod it, chip me up like an old Telewest box @RedYoshi (Overload chip and Best of MF chip)
  7. Walked out of the ground on Saturday behind three burly guys wearing red Hungarian national team shirts bearing the names of players - ‘Gera’, the only one I can recall. Perhaps we should be opening up a market to actively target the sale of City merchandise to Hungarian supporters? That’s how the top Premier League clubs operate. Strike while the vas is forró.
  8. ummm, don't think I would get those two mixed up . I know what you are saying though.
  9. Loosey Boy

    Afobe

    Seems to be loving life with us - long may it continue https://www.bristolpost.co.uk/sport/football/afobe-bristol-city-stoke-derby-3224777
  10. Good. Absolutely moronic behaviour.
  11. Today
  12. The experience is not helped by the Ashton Gate cameras being suspended about 10,000 feet above ground level. I would have thought this could have been taken into account when the ground was redeveloped.
  13. I remember our brilliant away support , Shutts diving header , a young Peter Beadle and spending most of the game stood balanced on a barrier behind the goal (1980s safe standing !) Brilliant night
  14. What the Sky pundits about Archers action is that it’s so simple. Shortish run up not a huge leap. Most of his pace comes from his arm/shoulder rather than from his back. Holding was saying just how easy it looks for Archer to generate such pace and that’s there’s very little wrong with his delivery and won’t need coaching.
  15. @REDOXO and @Dan Robin you're obviously late but I'm inclined to accept your entries anyway - It's only a bit of fun after all. I'm pretty sure that brings us up to 30 entries, the number aimed for, so that's good.. I'm not sure why @Never to the dark side invited you REDOXO but great to see Ted was enthusiastically advocating the competition behind the scenes, even if unfortunately he didn't enter himself! That really will have to be it for entries though - we're well into the season now. COMPETITION CLOSED. Back in May. COYR.
  16. Well I am disgusted that modern fashion looks awful. We should go back to the days where people wore sensible clothes like this: Damn modern men and their feminine dress sense!
  17. The big disadvantage is that the CB carries the ball out leaving a gap that one of the midfielders has to fill to avoid leaving the team too open at the back . Opposition teams closed down Webster high up the pitch towards the end of last season and he was much less affective. I actually don’t think that it’s a bad thing that he’s gone because now we are less predictable in our game. What I don’t want to witness ever again is Kalas and Baker hoofing the ball up the field more in hope than purpose. All players at this level should be comfortable on the ball , able to receive and recycle it quickly and accurately.
  18. Permanent plaque on Beezers chair now in the SC&T bar. The funeral is this Friday at South Bristol crem at 1:30 in case anyone needed a reminder, the wake is at Ashton Gate immediately afterwards.
  19. When you break it down the top 7 maybe 8 now are out there with wage bills over 150 million. Even clubs like Everton and West Ham are spending 200 million on players etc. So you are left with about 10 trying to stay out of the bottom 3. A huge jump for those coming up unless you do what maybe wolves did and loan a team but that season they lost 80 million going up! Even Brighton spent a bit this season and I thought they might struggle with the 3 promoted clubs. Yo yoing is ok but at some point you will probably overspend and be in the shit, a bit like the little club down the m4, still paying a few players 70k a week.
  20. I think the real key is that he is standing up after he has won the tackle, ready to play the ball. Incredible technique. My abiding memory of the World Cup in 70, (I was 8 ) were the two commentary staples of PELE! and Great tackle by Moore. It’s the **** em up get into them mentality that makes me cringe. Surely anyone who really watches the modern will see that it’s more important to keep shape and remain between the opponent and their forward options? It annoys me when I see our players defending the way they are taught, only to hear moans from the crowd.
  21. Its probably going to be a little like the season Flint stayed here for him. If i remember Flint almost left but we'd already signed Wright and Baker to replace him, after a spell on the bench he ended up back in the team for the season with Wright only getting game time at right-back due to injury. Only difference is Dunk is in the team from the start and Webster now finds his place blocked by the bloke he was supposed to replace.
  22. I'm in!....a great poet, 'Reynard The Fox' or 'The Ghost Heath Run' is just sublime!
  23. Yesterday
  24. Having heard about Palmer's sliding tackle, Rudolph wants to know if this is something he can have done on the NHS.
