    Typical classic English media. Today they are reporting that the England Assistant Manager (AM) might have let slip the line up/tactics of the England team for Sunday because some *** has taken a photo of a sheet of paper. The photo I saw showed some attempt at the person trying to keep the sheet hidden and (im assuming) this person was within the confines of a training area - not in a bar so why has someone tried to photo it, other that to create a story and make money. What gets my goat most though and is another reason I dislike the whole England circus (and yes, I include the media in this because of the over hype and frequent negative stories during tournements) is because the Media are blaming the England AM for revealing it - WHO THE **** IS REPORTING IT/PRINTING IT!!!!!! THE ******* MEDIA SCUM. It's the media who are revealing it not the AM, it's the media who are at fault for making this pubic and yet they are blaming the AM. The media *****! I hate them with a passion as they never take accountability for their actions and blame everyone else. Not one of them has said in their reports - actually if it wasn't for the media, no one would have seen this photo. Dicks! This has really ruined by breakfast.

    Most of our ‘links’ with players are completely fabricated anyway. Almost all of our signings come out of the blue with no one having even heard a whisper that we were ever in for them.

    Ouch! I bloody hope he employs the right people to spend his money. All well and good for us fans seeing money thrown at the club but the amount he’s put in for mid table Championship is bloody frightening. Perhaps time to spend the money on a proper CEO who knows wtf to do with the cash.

    I really liked last seasons kit with the thin white stripes...Shame they moved away from that after only one year. Not a massive fan of the white band on this one

    Bunch of idiots in here, some of these comments ffs I'll agree the pundits aren't necessarily the best, same with the women commentators I've heard. But there are tons of absolutely crap male pundits and commentators too. With a smaller sample size, it's mathematically going to be slightly longer before you find a great female pundit purely because there are less of them. I think in general most pundits are a bit irritating or a bit crap to be fair.

    People seem to completely ignore the fact that direct investment creates wealth and revenue for the country. The employees of HL, BCFC, Bristol rugby, Bristol Sport will have created much more revenue than Mr Lansdown could ever have contributed, had he not been successful. People see a persons wealth and think they haven't paid a penny towards society, that's probably a long way from reality, would they bother if they had to pay massive amounts of tax and have someone else decide how it's invested. The money he has put into the stadium development alone has created long term stability in that area. It will sustain for example: Employment at the stadium on match day, for football and rugby. Investments in the sporting infrastructure at Failand. Employment within Bristol Sport on the admin side. Employment for all the events held there. Employment for the outside companies that service those events. People attending any event spending their money in the local economy. Anyone employed there paying their PAYE taxes and their council taxes. I'm sure there are numerous other benefits to the local community as well as a few negatives but, MR Lansdown could quite easily have paid over the same amount of money in taxes, and some blithering idiot would have squandered the majority of it on ill thought out schemes such as a flyover for buses in Ashton, which could quite easily have gone on the road.

    Rubbish. It wasn't a foul anywhere on the pitch. He wouldn't have even thought about falling over if that was in the centre circle.

    If only it was so simple. These quotas only exsist because of 100s of years of inequality. You only have to look at some of the responses on this thread to see that some people would still not give a woman a chance if they were responsible for hiring comentators/pundits regardless of their qualifications. Truth is Men would more than Likely hire men. It's a barrier that needed help to be broken... And it still does. Men have had a 100 years head start on Women and It's what we are used to- it is odd for us to hear female comentators. If we had grown up with it then it wouldnt be an issue at all. Future generations probably wont give a shit- And that is what these quotas are aiming for in the long run. Just for balance... Id rather listen to pundits that have experienced the situation they are talking about. At present there are no female football players who can have experienced the weight of a nation and 100s of millions watching on tv etc.... But despite that i understand why they are (and need to be) there. And for what it's worth id rather listen to (and look at) alex scott than the likes of evra and lawrenson. At least she prepares for games rather than winging it as those two do. The best pundits imo are male... But so are the worst.

    No one seems to have noticed that Gabby Logan is also a woman and has been an exceptional broadcaster in football for years. She was a gymnast.

    Down in the Nizhny fan zone for the 2nd half of the Iceland game: strong showing of Panama fans. Two English fans near us, but Walsall supporters and can't be arsed hearing about David Kelly, swerved them.

    Spot on @Redsox. Sadly that particular point is far too subtle for the majority on here. As long as Steve is investing in making us proud very few give a shit about those that go hungry or without a safe roof over their heads. But when the NHS/Justice/Education system/s are well and truly ****** no one will point a finger at those who avoid and evade paying their fair share of tax. Oh now. We’ll all clap and be grateful.

    OPs like this remind me of Bristol Live reporting. There is no concrete evidence we ever wanted McQueen in the first place and he hasn’t gone somewhere else, so how can anyone claim we have “missed out”? Henderson may well be a different matter but once he signed a new deal with Man U I was happy that we are presumably looking to bring in a keeper who will actually be our player. There are still three weeks before they go to Marbella and I’d be very surprised if we don’t have three new players plus Watkins who has already signed, here by then. I got slagged off for saying this a while back, but I don’t expect us to have any net spend this summer once the likes of Reid & Bryan leave and I think that is a factor too.

    Nothing to worry about, we'll sign who we need. Surely this summer our stock is as high as it has ever been, and we must be quite attractive to the pool of players we are aiming for. There are so many reasons why we should be able to recruit the players we are after: Stable club, top class stadium, League Cup run and improved profile, good management and ownership, play a decent standard of football, etc.

    After seeing the away kit, no surprise. That white band makes me think of Boro', and their history of vile, nasty kits

    You can have an opinion that's fine. But if you think that saying all women's commentary is shit isn't sexist then that's ridiculous. By definition it literally is.

    Ok I am going to sound controversial but need to get off my chest how does everyone feel about the tick box on diversity and inclusion In respect of women now being a part of commentary teams and panels? i am trying hard to be objective but not sure how much Alex Scott, eni eluko and Jacqui oatley add to the party and it all appears a little awkward when they are sat next to true footballing greats. i may be slaughtered for this but meh I can take it but world has gone pc mad

    It's rugby fans that make me laugh. Anything that happens in rugby is "you wouldn't see that in football" or "football players don't do that". If the best thing about the sport is another sport doesn't do it, then it's not a very good sport. Love winding rugby fans up.

    Pretty sure he would have paid tax on the sale of the shares. As for contribution, the recent stadium improvements alone were around 40 million, that money went to companies / supply chains for parts and materials filtering from electricians working on the stadium to port handlers / miners digging up/transporting goods. People who need to earn money to feed themselves kids and families - it's not like the money he spends is just being set on fire. The employees of HL (over a thousand) , Bristol Rugby, Bristol City all earning a wage, and all their money also trickling down to shops / businesses. As for the Tax and NI paid by those companies and employees, probably exceeds in one year the combined contribution of all the rest of Bristol City supporters in a life time. SL's probably contributed more to the welfare of everyone on this forum than the posters themselves, just due to the sums involved.

    That was the case until January. Good management? I don’t think so. Play a decent standard of football? Not in many games since January. All of the points you have made were absolutely the case prior to January. That was when are stock was high and we were an attractive proposition for signings. Golden opportunity to bring in players sadly missed.

    As Jim Bowen would have said - let's see what you could have won! A wider white band, but the red picked up in the shorts. This idea was rejected as the sponsor wasn't happy that there was no where to put their name and the club wasn't happy with such a small amount of red in the kit and they wanted a model with a beard.. I do apologise for reposting this photograph and it's sexist nature.

    Presumably with Henderson, we were beaten to his signing by Man U as opposed to Sheffield Utd. I don't think we'd have been interested in taking him on loan, we wanted him on a permanent but Henderson decided to sign a new deal with Man U over a permanent move elsewhere. No real shame in that from our point of view.

    I'd say that every year there will be at least 5 clubs permanently ahead of us in the race to sign players if they are looking at the same targets as we are. That would be 2 or 3 of the clubs coming down from the Prem, providing they are not complete basket cases, and 2 or 3 clubs pushing for the prem at the top of the Championship. Until we have been around the top of the championship and really are a side that can press for the play offs / automatic promotion year on year we won't get a look in. I feel a player would compromise on wages a little if he thought that the long term chances of promotion were good but, as we enter our 4th season back in the Championship, we are still not in a position to show that.

    If you have to explain why you love football to someone they will never understand. Those who understand will never require an explanation.
