    Wow!That is absolutely incredible. You have gone on the internet and admitted to the whole world that you read the Daily Star.

    Many replies on here criticising the ref for a poor decision. How can the ref have given anything but a penalty. It’s cheating. By the WBA player. We should all call it out and condemn it rather than blame the ref. The consensus view should be “the player cheated and won his team the game. This is wrong, he’s conned the officials and cheated, and the FA should apply a retrospective 3 game ban”.

    There are so many parallels between this season and the last time we achieved promotion to the top flight in 1976. It must be a good omen. 1. We had the longest serving manager in the second tier in Alan Dicks and now have that in Lee Johnson. 2. We had a goalkeeper who started his career as a defender in Ray Cashley and now have that with Daniel Bentley. 3. We had a clever young winger in Clive Whitehead and now have that in Niclas Elliason. Niclas Elliason is almost an anagram of Clive Whitehead. 4. We had a midfielder who was hear, he was there, he was every ******* where in Gerry Gow. We now have that in Han Noah Massengo. If you take the last two letters of Massengo and add the first letter but turn it upside down, it miraculously spells Gow!!!! 5. We scored a hatful of goals against a team from Yorkshire that season. 6. The President of the USA was a ********. 7. We had the name of one of the most popular TV shows of the day in our side, Sweeney. Now we have one of the most popular TV shows of this era on our books in Louis Britton, although he's now on loan at Bath (Britains Got Talent). 8. 2 years earlier we caused a big upset in a cup competition. 9. It was a leap year in 1976, 2020 will also be a leap year. 10. I can't think of any others and couldn't back then either. So all bodes well. The only thing that wasn't like this season was that we beat WBA at The Hawthorns

    Sky sports news confirm Sheffield Wednesday owner among three people charged by EFL with misconduct. Dejphon Chansiri charged following investigation into sale of Hillsborough Stadium. Sale of Hillsborough for £60m to Chansiri allowed Sheffield Wednesday to post a profit for 2017/18 season. Without Stadium sale Sheffield Wednesday would have failed the EFLs profitability and sustainability rules. Sheffield Wednesday finance director John Redgate and former Chief Executive Katrien Meire also charged

    Aston Villa. Done a bit more work on this. Looked for a piece I saw a while ago. Seems there could have been some sort of Transfer across of Villa Park and maybe more as in 2015/16 it was listed under Recon Sports, formerly known as Reform Acquisitions Limited and possibly in 2016/17 also. In 2017/18, it was back under Aston Villa Limited- NOT to be confused with Aston Villa Football Club Limited, or Aston Villa FC Limited. If you add back on the depreciation then maybe it looks alright as far as £56.7m for Villa Park goes- unfortunately. Still questions about the Impairment in 2015/16. Curiously, though it only came through in March 2019, Recon Football Limited and Aston Villa Limited swapped names on January 23rd 2019. In March 2019, Recon Football Limited seemed to have had its name changed back to Aston Villa Limited- but they still owned the ground at this time. Person/Party with Significant control is and was NSWE UK- aka Recon Group, Xia's parent company or top one in the UK. In May 2019- May 16th in fact, Aston Villa Limited no longer controlled NSWE Stadium Limited, but instead the owners were now in direct control. Owners purchased the ground- seemed to have been removed from the group...? Genuinely shit like this and the fact that they had 3 years with the Parachute Payments makes it significantly worse, merits serious consideration given to a suspension from the League pending action/votes/disciplinary as and when they come back down IMO! Oh yeah, the piece. Don't want to read about those pricks, epitomised by the King ***** Purslow really so I'll pull out two key bits...the two bits below were written by Yorkshire AVFC, a prolific FFP blogger and especially on Aston Villa and unsure who wrote the original piece, maybe his work too. This is very much I think, what is called taking the piss and I'd be interested genuinely to see how clubs would vote on a suspension of membership for Aston Villa on return if put to them? Or perhaps a suspension vote that gets shelved in return for a large FFP points related penalty? Why we helped the ******* with Baker instalment- given what their fans are like, let alone in particular Purslow- I'll never know! Yes, it's common in the corporate world (possibly) these sorts of renaming, restructuring, juggling- but this is a very clear but yet complex attempt to flout and get round the regulations. To summarise, NSWE Stadium Limited was founded in 2017/18 but was nonetheless part of the group. Had multiple names, including curiously, Vilden Limited. Club removed it from the Group it would appear, let the owners take it over then sold the ground to this company controlled by the owners but not the club/the group.

    Read up the thread; I was doing it as a time loop by repeating OneTeaminBristol's comments to see if anyone would notice but @Bar BS3 caught me out first post!

    Our away form can not really be criticised , so to be fair, what ever LJ saids , he has earnt the right. As to home form, the more aggressive line up used against Huddersfield gets my vote every day of the week

    In fairness Spud, I misread your post. Sorry, I thought you’d said we were unbeaten 442 or 4231....so my fault, I thought you were insinuating we never lose with a back 4, and draw with a back 5.

    :laugh:...maybe...I watch with my eyes and also use whoscored...who track how we set up at start and they note every formation change during a game and at what time. I find them to be the most reliable for game stats. Forgot to add...they have people at every game who supply the stats. Which are used by betting companies...so very reliable.

    To be fair this does piss me off. Scroll the Football page on BBC sport, see "England beating Scotland 19-0", think Oh shit I've missed that there was a game on and then realise that of course it's that England. I don't have anything against women playing but let's not try and mislead people into being interested. I don't see why we'd need a subforum on here though.

    Startling news. I had completely forgotten we had a player called Szmodics. Genuinely. Is he any good?
  22. 1 point
    I'd be surprised if Szmodics left permanently in the Summer. He's not really had a fair crack in the first team proper and Johnson has a record of giving players quite a long time in order to find their place. Eliasson, Brownhill, Moore, COD and even Engvall all had at least one full season on the fringes or out on loan before becoming embedded in the matchday squad (or being let go in Engvall's case). Szmodics seems to have bedded in well in the dressing room and we've heard no rumblings about a poor attitude - so there's no reason to let him go from that perspective. A loan at championship level would be perfect for Szmodics imo, even if it is as back up to Bowen at Hull or Pritchard at Huddersfield. As for Adelakun...I think he may get one more season here. Note - all this is without checking the length of contracts, and all assuming we are a Championship team next season.

    But you care enough to click on the thread which is clearly marked Women and reply to it?

    I watched several women's World Cup games and enjoyed them. Women's football does work as a spectator sport and that an U16 men's team, or whatever, could beat them has no bearing at all upon that.

    Just meh! I class them as Bristol City as thats the badge and name they are representing so they have every given right to be discussed on here and the BCFC website. But it doesn't bother me in the slightest if they win or lose unlike the men's team.

    I was just trying to argue that unlike tennis and possibly darts women don’t get an advantage for being women ( and rightly so). Yes the area of the goal might be easier to score in due to the height of the keepers, but to counteract that they aren’t defending against 6’5” players on the whole either?

    I would like to think that with injured players returning and an almost full squad available, LJ can start to select teams based on playing to our strengths, rather than countering the opposition.

    I'm certainly not ITK, but the below may be of interest? These were the top 5 earners in the World in April 2019 ** The report below was written in June 2019 ** The growth of full-time professionals in women's football in the country is seeing a rise in pay. More money is coming into the game through the FA, sponsors and TV companies as everybody looks to build on the attention garnered from England's World Cup achievements in 2015. How much is more though, what are the current realities, and how is it changing? The first rule of player salaries is that not many are willing to talk about player salaries (as in the men's game), and it is not at all straightforward to draw clear comparisons. Nevertheless, it is possible to piece together information about the range of amounts players are paid in the Women's Super League and look at the different factors involved at the moment. Here's a basic look. How much money is there in the Women's Super League? Top earners can receive around £35,000 for the year, but there is a significant disparity between top and bottom and any middle may not be that useful to know. While clubs such as Manchester City are in the majority in WSL1 in having full-time squads, there are still a few teams not yet there and youth players rarely get a meaningful wage, which would considerably skew any average. "They range dramatically," says Matthew Buck, director of player management at the PFA. "Over the last couple of years more and more players and teams have gone professional and it's still catching up the system really. "They range from anywhere from £5000-£10000 on the lower spectrum for players who aren't professional up to around the £35,000 mark for the top earners." How does the salary cap work? Having observed what happened with a franchise league in the United States, the FA opted to enforce a salary cap for the WSL. Basically, all clubs can use only 40 per cent of their turnovers on the wage bill. There are no minimum or maximum limits for individual salaries and the aim is to help clubs grow sustainably and try to keep a degree of equality, even if there will naturally be disparities between the clubs. If teams can attract more sponsors and bigger crowds, their cap will go up to reflect that. Do England pay anything? England internationals have been paid for the last five years through central contracts. As it stands, 30 players have been awarded central contracts that sit separately from their club contracts. Each of them is given a minimum of £25,000 a year, rising to £30,000 through things such as appearance bonuses. The player pool has grown since they were first introduced and the money has increased every year.

    I have done this several times for groups from 20 - 150 +. Contact the community trust. Prices have varied but they have organised the tickets and provided assistance in the ground.

    Agree with this, keeper should never have given the ref a decision to make, looked a poor decision but definitely a dive so the blame lies with the Albion player for conning the ref.

    Depends on the context, I really have no interest in women’s football, don’t click on the threads usually, so you could say I don’t give a shit about them. That said, I hope they enjoy what they do, if it encourages girls to get out and exercise and learn some lessons in life that team sports teach, then fine.

    Good draw in fairness. Maybe its just me but i now look at the FA and league cups with a genuine desire to go as far as we can and heaven forbid even get to a semi or final (We almost got to a final in 17/18 so why not dream big..) I’d much rather progress to the later stages and meet the big boys there.. cant help but think with how far we have come in the last few years that wanting a big team early on is really only what the tinpot lower league outfits are striving for!

    We’ve failed to get the best out of home because of LJs system/tactics. Away he’s been decent. Overall in his time here he’s been good - which is what he is. A good but not outstanding striker at this level and he isn’t going to get any better really.
