    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

    The furious self-flagellation of Premiership clubs in their desperation to stay at that level has gone way past the point of being rational. Burnley remain the blueprint, don't fear going down, simply see it as an opportunity to further strengthen the foundations for the next assault, and develop the leadership experience for more sustained success the next time round. But no, for most clubs struggling in the Premiership involves blowing everything up at repeated intervals as some kind of bizarre defence mechanism against having to return to the Championship. When in fact what they're really achieving is a World War 2 style "scorched earth" policy of not just being relegated, but ensuring everything is destroyed before they return. Odd behaviour, but makes it more amusing when they get back here and really have to start from scratch.

    Ah you must mean like “the only good City fan is a dead one!!!” Blokes a ******* prat and an embarrassment to Bristol!

    There would be no sentiment if he was offered a huge pay rise to go elsewhere - the fluffy world, full of loyalty and gratitude, of which you speak doesn’t exist in football ...

    And be out of a job by Christmas if he doesn't get off to great start. He'd be mad to leave when he is allowed to build here.

    Yes, I’m sure there were some strikers available ‘in world football’, but how do you know they would have done well in the Championship? We took a striker on loan in the January window in 2018 who appeared to fit the bill and look how that turned out. The important thing is not to sign ‘any striker in world football’ but the right striker for Bristol City and, yes, maybe that striker wasn’t available in January. How many strikers changed hands this January? How many of them have been an instant success? The important thing was not to affect the momentum that was building by making signings that would have been destructive to the team morale. If the right striker wasn’t available then I completely back the decision not to sign any striker at all.

    Bigotry (like "racist" and "fascist") is a word that is thrown around and misused, like confetti. It has lost any sort of currency. BTW...how would you describe the narky snidery you aimed at one of our most successful modern day managers? You know...the one that pulled your drawers down and smacked you round the shitter? (FAO The troll)

    Thing is nearly every manager Tomlin has had has failed to deal with him, its not an LJ exclusive club.

    What a great day yesterday..... it all started off in the city center with the bus with the players passing by too. Great moment that was and it has given the players the right vibe for the match too. After that with a corteo to the stadium for a pre party over there too. the match itself was not of a very good standard, but hwo cares? The penalties were indeed very bad taken, but who gives a toss? We are through to the final!!!! That will be a very hard game to win, but at least it will be a fun day out!!!

    Of course there were decent strikers available in January , it is more a question of clubs , finally, deciding not to make eye watering offers to get them in .

    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.

    What is it with these self victimising names? What’s empowering about wanting an equal playing field and then constantly undermining the sport with patronising titles?

    Some random thoughts The pitch was appalling without the Rugger Buggers playing on it . Classique two wingers , big fella , little fella up front . The crowd loud and proud . I was there.

    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.

    There's as much chance of this as us ever signing the England keeper.

    I think we’ve generally had better managers than the club deserved.

    Plenty of good quality championship strikers would have been available, club like us just decided they weren't financially sensible, difference between not available and not wanting to pay the stupid prices

    1. The topic is about Leeds. 2. You did not mention price: "no decent strikers available in the winter window". The second is indeed factually incorrect.

    I need my eyes tested. I sit dead in line, and I was convinced the ball bounced a good foot our side of the line. Blimey, no wonder Adams thought it was in.

    Too promising too young is a familiar story. Unfortunately early promise doesn’t always translate into a successful career. Anyone remember Sean Penny, a City youth player from the early 70s? He was an England schoolboy international and City funded his education at Millfield school, but he never made it as an adult player. Lots of other examples - eg Marvin Brown

    I just watched 5 minutes of the france vs china. France just got a free kick just outside the box and the chinese built a great wall.

    Assuming all 3 stay....that’s one less position to recruit. Niki and Frank as 1 and 2. Max out on loan with Sesay or Jo-Jo providing back up.

    Decent result for England women in their first match beating Brazil 2-1 last night, absolutely shocking decision in awarding Brazil a first half penalty, decent equaliser by England, then a winning goal the scorer will always claim as a shot but everyone else will claim it as a cross. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/47283692 One noticeable odd thing was the road bridge passing over the roof of the main stand

    If this is what retirement reduces people to, I'm tempted to keep working until the day I drop.

    Agree, McBurnie has a very good all round game...is also used to playing on his own up-top. That’s one thing I’ve not seen from Adams. Callum would be best off (imho) staying here and continuing to develop. I don’t think he’s anywhere near ready for a big move. If he does move he’ll have less clubs after him than if he becomes a key player with us next season. I would call him a “first team regular” - He is not a “first name on the team sheet” player yet.

    . Wael has until recently been carried up and down the Glos Rd by appreciative Gas heads and has become used to not having to pay for a bus ticket, but now Rovers fans seem reluctant to transport him to the city centre using his favourite method. Not put off by this, Wael discovered gangs of semi-tumescent Sunderland fans wandering around pointing at all things Bristol Rovers and commenting on how much more they love the Gas in comparison to the Ted's in fact they were more than happy to carry the president where he wanted to go... His usual destination was Dixons because he wanted to buy a big screen TV. But was unable to because they didn't sell the bracket that went with it, plus he went in about six shops and none of them sold training grounds...

    I teally like Reece James (Wigan loan from Chelsea - who else) too. Just a good allround modern day RB. I like Ajayi at Rotherham, 25, coming into his peak. Physical and can play (assumes no Kalas) I’d have a look at Tyler Walker (Mansfield loan from Forest - Des’s son) if Eisa isn’t gonna make it here - unlikely I reckon. Che Adams - If I was gonna break the bank...don’t think he’d come here though. Diedhiou i’d try to move on if we got Adams.

    Good news for Oskar and his family. Best wishes for when you get to "big school". I'm always amazed at the resilience, determination shown by those with disabilities of so many different types. They have my total admiration.

    Aww, that’s lovely to hear. Please thank Lizzy and remind her what a great job she must be doing. Yes there are bound to be upsets and setbacks but as ever the positives certainly outweigh them. I’m sure many people will be happy to see this update.

    Hang in there, Oskar. Every true Red is cheering on your progress.
