    Hello everyone, Someone asked in another thread how Oskar was getting on. I’ve contacted Lizzy his mum and she’s given me permission to post the following.

    So in world football there were no strikers available in Jan that could do well in the Championship? Utter nonsense

    If you can get past your one eyed bigotry you’d realise that Holloway can and often does talk some proper sense. Loads of football fans nationwide tweet in to TS about how much they rate his contributions and insight into the beautiful game.

    Why not? Free hit of Prem football for a few months, can start implementing his style of play and seeing who he wants to keep. Can join a club with big money to spend, some quality players, a superb academy, and a club his family supports. As long as he’s realistic at the start, and they agree it’ll be 2 years til he aims for promotion to the Prem rather than instant then IMO it’ll be a great move for him.

    I'm gonna sound like a negative Nigel now, but I don't see the top four as being within reach. For me it's 6th or nothing.

    I think the only reason LJ would leave City would be because he got sacked.... He knows that he owes a debt of gratitude to SL who as we all know stuck by LJ when almost everyone was calling for his head. Add to that the project he’s been set that SL knows won’t happen overnight. He’ll want to see that through 100%

    Great news - absolutely adored him when I was a kid (not a Spurs fan) - goal against Watford was sublime brilliance. Never, ever thought England utilised him properly (Greenwood) - he was a magician with the ball & could ping or place it almost anywhere. Shame he made a mistake with England & was inevitably hounded out. We could have achieved somethimg under him - top players will tell you that. Decent man & good to see him back.

    LJ better send one of his staff to have a sneaky peek at Leeds' training to find out! A good result for us is beating Preston.

    Because the club run on a 'lucky to be here' 'punching above our weight' attitude rather than the determination that it is where we should be and it is deserved. need a whole mindset change if we're are to get promoted imo. Psychological as much as it is tactical and technical.

    Surely they'll have that many locked out?! Went there Dec 14 when we won 3-1. Freezing cold, December 28th match yet we took a lot, lot more than that sorry show.

    Partly blame the Metropolitan Police and Millwall who both did not want the rearranged game on either 5th or 6th March. Apparently, despite knowing of the fixture change from 16th February onwards, they both agreed there was insufficient time to put the necessary "security" in place. What a load of cobblers.

    Yeah agree, would like to see that, may surprise the opposition as well. Would also counter Preston’s niggly nature too

    My local pussies have completely changed their behaviour:- - zero shit in my garden; - no disrespecting looks from the bottom of the garden (what is your problem??); - they have started fighting with each other; - one sits in the road apparently waiting to be run over. Quadruple win. Do you have to run it on plain water??

    Often wondered this myself. But all teams (club and international) do this. As you can see, Gloucester have also announced their team:

    That's what I jokingly meant Dave. City were either unable to give a transfer target assurances that they would be the main striker, or we declined to pay an exhorbitant fee for the likes of Assombalonga. Leon Clarke would have been a great fit, but having been relegated to the Blades' bench this season, 'headlining' Wigan's attack was likely a more attractive option.

    I think he might have become one in 2016. Three trips there that year, three wins, 8-2 aggregate score!

    Agree with most of this we wont get kalas a bigger club that pay championship wages will sign him 40 000 a week?

    Nottingham Forest headline loss £5,596,000 HOWEVER that includes a debt write off of £5m which under FFP does not count so add £5m to that. I looked back at my own projections for their losses last season- and only around £2m out which I think given no publicly given wage figures for new signings not a bad effort. I had it about £12.4m for their losses last season inclusive of transfer profit, changes in amortisation etc- and the primary reason for that was I overestimated their transfer profit by about £2.4m.

    Absolutely right. No way would LJ consider a move to a relegation bound Fulham.

    Sounds like this may be a case of being too promising? I'd rather get a couple of years of first team value than have them head off at 16/17 for a million or so.

    Thanks for the heads up. If I ever become a referee, I shall tell them that I support Darlington, or someone obscure, in the hope that I’ll get to Referee some City & Rovers matches. Just hope they don’t notice the tattoos..!

    Personally think players will go for the money rather than how "big" they feel a club is.

    Like it. If tickets available many will cross the north sea rather than view it from Costa del Ull.

    His situation in the summer could be interesting, think Birmingham will have to sell him, if no team from the prem wants him either a big championship team will take him and shift one of their own strikers down their pecking order or a team our level could be the one to get him in, given our striker situation we should be a tempting prospect for strikers in the summer and the game time we could give them.

    It`ll depend on what Frankie wants to do IMO. There are often rumours about him wanting to move back oop north so if an opportunity came up and he fancied it I doubt we`d stand in his way - a bit like we let Wilbs go with our best wishes.

    Yate tradionally was a Gas area without a doubt. However, when the town expanded (mostly during the 70s + 80s) families relocated from all over Bristol and thankfully tipped the balance which is now firmly in City's favour. Having gone through secondry school (early 90's) my age group was always majority of City fans - but the older generations more Gas. When my age group hit the pub scene in the mid 90's and on to the 00's you could see a big change with City fanbase getting larger and the Gas reducing. I think the worrying thing for the Gas now is the lack of new fans coming through for them. It is evident that for the youngsters, City shirts are a far more common site than Gas shirts - there is a definate lack of blue shirts being worn in an around Yate nowadays -

    Greetings. Good game on Saturday. We weren't at our best first half but in no small part due to the fact you played very well. think we just had a bit too much firepower for you in the end but it would be nice not to have to rely on coming back from behind so much by defending a bit better! I think we missed Vrancic and Leitner who were on the bench as Farke kept faith with Mclean. They are our playmakers and help us to control games and keep the ball better although of course mclean got two goals so that selection dilemma doesn't get any easier! In terms of our fans I think we probably do have a higher than average percentage of both elderly and female fans which has pros and cons in terms of the atmosphere although that view is probably heightened by the stand the away fans are in which tends to have more older fans and families in it. Setting up the obvious Norfolk joke we do have quite a lot of families where there will often be three generations sitting next to each other. Delia has an influence in terms of the famale fans I think. There is an issue in terms of "season ticket churn" in that season tickets have essentially been sold out for about a decade now which i think is a challenge in terms of getting the younger generation along. I still have my season ticket because I don;t really dare give it up even though due to family commitments I can only get to half a dozen home games a season so I offload it for most games. We do though have a lot of season ticket holders in their 20's and early 30's as back in the days we were really struggling in the late 90's/00's we were one of the first clubs to introduce really affordable season tickets for kids and students (think it was about £15 for a long time for U12s and about £40 for U16's) who have remained season ticket holders ever since. Its a habit thing isn't it and once you get into the habit of going you keep going. Anyway best of luck for the rest of the season and if you could take some points off Leeds and Shef U for us it would be very much appreciated! i think you are good enough to do so. I think Bristol and Norwich are quite similar cities in terms of the fact they are proper provincial cities with a strong identity. Have been impressed with how your owner has gone about building the club on a sustainable basis, improved the ground etc and it all seems to be there for you to have a crack at the prem even if it doesn't happen this year!

    It’s just yet another schoolboy attempt at an insult from TM................. Its water off a ducks back to me Tony. I really couldn’t give a shit. It does gets very dull and repetitive tho............. I’m sure several other posters feel the same way.
