  1. Past hour
  2. I found it! by trawling the Observer archives, so thank you @Final 3 Starfor pointing me in the right direction
  3. Last nights comments from Pearson questioning the players desire etc reminded me of Barton doing the same the night before. Whilst I think the current contractual situations of many players is contributing to these god awful performances we're currently seeing, it is sort of a blessing in disguise that no effort will be required to shift them in the summer. Joey Barton mentioned the amount of players left from his squad now, that will be in his squad next season will be in single figures. This must worry Wael because after looking, only 4 of their squad are OOC. I think
  4. All this proves though is that too many footballers really have nothing, zilch, zero between those ears of theirs. Them and their Agents must have this notion that "nothing will change"..........well you try telling Chairman at clubs like Rochdale, Crawley, Carlisle and the like that nothing is changing and that they will remain more than happy to hoover up failing players at Sheffield Wednesday, Derby, Bristol City and the like on half decent wages. It really isn't happening and when the cloth is finally cut a number of these players are going to be gobsmacked when they are either out of work
  5. Pledgeball may be good intentioned but in reality it’s crackpot. How will anyone know if the pledges made are actually actioned? Imagine if Rovers took park. They would have pledges from their 200k plus fan base that would save the world by themselves
  6. I'm always astonished at how poor some professional players are at controlling a ball. It's basic stuff. Even at amateur level...if you couldn't do the basics you wouldn't play. I do think with some, it's complacency. Others...just not able to do it. It really is bizarre. As a coach you'd be ripping your hair out. How can you spend millions on a player and they can't do the basics, not even under pressure. How the hell can't you cross a ball accurately...it's not hard with practice. Some of the technical ability of some of our players is absolutely appalling. Ev
  7. If everyone was in agreement apart from the fans, they’d paint them as mindless yobs...the fans haven’t had any influence on decisions over the last 30 years. It’s very naive to think so, and will be used to manipulate them over decisions in the future.
  8. I love the OP from @Numero Uno as it is an example of the sort of decisive action that the club needs. Unfortunately, in recent years, decisive action is the attribute that Steve Lansdown lacks. In his early years at the club he seemed to be a different person - eg appointing Gary Johnson and sticking with him. Since he’s stepped back and moved to Guernsey he’s slipped into semi retirement mode, which at 68 is a bit too early to put your feet up and watch TV
  9. Were just not very good and that is the legacy left by Mr Ashton and his recruitment process. It is a massive job and it needs a man with a massive personality to do it. They should appoint Pearson now and let him do it. As far as these players are concerned, get rid of them now. They havent done nearly enough, although what business lets its assets run down there contracts. Again, shocking from Ashton, who really should be doing some gardening leave. If the club need a CEO, I am available until the end of July. I am quite happy to fire alot of people.
  10. It's a good point. I guess it's different personalities and different management styles - and maybe that's part of our problem. It wouldn't be the first time in SLs tenure that he's tried to change the style of management without apparently realising the impact on players - motivationally, tactically etc. I don't really know enough about NP and I'm not quite sure he's up there in the Neil Warnock 'old school' type, but its quite likely that we've got a lot of players who don't respond to NPs style - in the way you wouldn't. One of the OSIB 'cider with' episodes featured David Noble,
  11. Sturny

    This team

    And was quite decent in midfield for a time
  12. Sincere condolences on your loss. My late Father introduced me to football, and it creates a very special bond, sharing the excitement, disappointment, ups and downs. Glad that you have so many happy memories to look back on and treasure in the future. Holding positive thoughts for Mrs BT. x
  13. Leaders within a group will often challenge those they report into - LJ wouldn't like that
  14. @The Constant Rabbit Good on yer City supporter and fan. Anyone who travels 24,000 miles to watch this very average club, deserves better than your current state. Keep going in spite of all the problems and misery as it's not a rehearsal and sincerely hope your family and you get through this. Next time you come over I'll buy you a beer at The Gate. But only one, cos I'm a tight fisted miserable old git!
  15. Ouch ...........WTF was that ,that just fell on my head ?
  16. Today
  17. .... especially when you consider how many £millions have been spent assembling our supposedly strengthened current squad!
  18. Yep... burgers are definitely better at hungry jacks!
  19. Another good listen, as always. Agree mostly with what's said but couldn't put it as succinctly. Wish you and Ian were on the board, that would stir things up.
  20. Would any person having any form of Bristol City allegiance not spotted this before its release and corrected it? A (very) small issue, but for me just shows how far we’ve sunk as a Club imo. We’re supposed to be professional, but people just don’t care - the whole structure seems to have broken down. This is what happens when ‘leadership’ goes awol in a business.
  21. That really is going a bit too far !
  22. Imagine the unthinkable. Gas stage a miraculous escape, and we get relegated. I would have to go into lockdown again.
  23. Thought Mark Selby was particularly impressive and ruthless to lead Kurt Maflin 8-1 overnight.....
  24. I got the following email, not sure if of interest to anyone CLICK HERE TO ACCESS
  25. Britton been told to get his shooting boots ready for this Sunday’s match vs Luton
