  1. (From Daily Mail) MANAGER Lee Johnson (Bristol City) Johnson has been manager since 2016. His club are seventh in the Championship, one point outside the play-offs. It has been nice to spend a bit of real time with my family because sometimes you can be there but not there; in the room but thinking about team selection. On the football side, we have a physical Zoom session with the lads on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The players have programmes to keep to and heart monitor apps. They have to weigh in twice a week so when they walk past their kids' Cadbury's Buttons it

  3. But the point of it was that he has knowledge of Premier League clubs giving players McDonalds vouchers, and so is valid as a point to how times change. Seems like just looking for a stick to beat him with. Apologies if it wasn't but that's certainly how it comes across.

  5. Dont think anyone is gambling with anyone's lives. We've been kept in for 7 weeks now which is an extraordinary amount of time and it's fine its job of helping the NHS cope. We now need to get back to normality as soon as we can without going overboard. If we extend lockdown further then this country will sink. Boris Johnsons doing the right thing for all of us going forward.

  7. It's mildly amusing / confusing that so many people who hate the very idea of this book have actually gone out and bought it - guess what, a book featuring a guy wielding a baseball bat on the cover isn't going to give you tips on tickling. I would agree that it's definitely not a memorable read compared to a few in the genre (would say that Scally, Steaming In and Naughty are by far the best in a pretty mediocre and one-dimensional field), but it is exactly what it promises to be on the sleeve - an inside look at our mob. It shan't be remembered as a work of great literary merit,

  10. Interesting interpretation by some, for me it reads as when I was at Watford (who were) in the premier league, he doesn't say 'when I was playing in the premier league), the reference to the premier league implies the level of professionalism you'd expect with regards to what he's saying.

  11. It’s funny how he mentions Lambert who apparently credits his goal against us as the reason why he went on to play for England. Thats the same Ricky Lambert who, after scoring on his debut for his country, thanked everyone from the Beetroot Factory to Southampton Football Club but totally forgot to mention Rovers. What is it with these ******* idiots pandering to 5000 insecure, fragile nob ends in North Bristol through the Evening Post?

  12. Not really....having to react quickly to Johnsin’s desire to be popular by announcing relaxing of some lockdown aspects (on Monday) in Parliament yesterday. And then leaking to the press to whip everyone up ahead of a dry / sunny bank holiday weekend. And then Raab having to back pedal today. Johnson is dangerously irresponsible. As for Sturgeon, I’m no great fan, but she isn’t gambling with our lives like Johnson is. If they are really worried about grandstanding, why not schedule press briefings at the same time.

  15. Or better still not claim that he was anywhere near that premier league squad because he wasn't. He could have referred to his experiences as a pro at Yeovil or Bristol City but strangely enough he chose to mention "Pemier League" Watford, where he was a youth player, coincidentally managed by his father.

  20. I think we’re very fortunate right now to be regarded as a modern, professional club with a modern, intelligent progressive manager. I think the players will trust the club to do the right thing, I know I’d have more confidence as a player staff member with our current set up than previous ones or where and when we’ve had an ‘old school’ manager at the helm. We’re also very lucky to have the financial ability take the necessary precautions, not many clubs at our level or below would be able to make offers of circa £10k per night to take over somewhere like Cadbury house for the players an

  22. Another few weeks of ‘pain’ will not hurt in the grand scheme of things. Rushing out of it just to placate the people who believe ‘enough is enough’ thus far will, with the greatest respect, be a complete disaster.

  24. Not really, you reap what you sow. I suppose if we had a solicitor to unearth information to feed to opposition groups that opposed all their plans for new stadia, supermarkets, or were the only professional sporting club in the region that failed to support Bristol's WC bid and then, tried to take their ground off of them for a paltry sum, then we'd be getting a bit closer.

  32. It is amazing though how many major music acts cite them as influences. For instance, I read an interview with Debbie Harry who said that Heart Of Glass was intended to be reggae - based a la The Tide Is High until they heard Kraftwerk and completely rearranged it. The list is endless, as you say, no Joy Division, New Order, The Smiths, OMD, Pet Shop Boys, The KLF, Human League, Soft Cell and so many more great bands.

  35. Demonstrates the immense cultural difference. Football is a social construct so it reflects the conditions of the society in which its played. If you have a problem with the game in the UK, then you have a problem with society in the UK. In my opinion, everyone should.

  38. A good read that. It`s an interesting insight to how clubs have been approaching this situation and it seems we`ll be ready to go when we`re told we can. The training in the stadium comment was an insight too - getting them used to playing with no crowd there. I imagine pretty much every club has been doing what we have and I can`t think of much we could be doing differently.

  43. Americans - Machinery Soviets - Bodies United Kingdom - Time One of the best (and simplistic, I’ll grant you) descriptions of the allied contributions to the war effort. Never underestimate how important holding out and resisting for that first 18 months was. If there’s no stubborn little island holding out and and causing problems in Northern Europe and North Africa, the frighteningly efficient and advanced German war machine goes very, very far, very quick. The US is in no position to defend the east coast.

  44. The trouble is that they`ll use the fact that Flapper said it as proof that they did take 50k despite all the evidence to the contrary. And the irony of him looking for a `fan` who went to Wembley but hasn`t been seen since...……………………..

  46. The reality is that, if the season cannot be completed, it will be shit, depressing for all involved and financially challenging for many people. But cancelling Glastonbury was shit, depressing for all involved and financially challenging for many people. Yet Glastonbury nonetheless took the decision. Ditto holidays being cancelled, events being cancelled, businesses, pubs and restaurants being closed. This is a depressing sacrifice but one that has rightly been deemed necessary. I've been fortunate in that I've kept working but everything I was looking forward to this year has been cance

  47. What would really lift morale is finding a vaccination so we can get to some form of normal life again. Allowing grandparents to hug their grandchildren, families to reunite, bars and restaurants to reopen so we can mix as a society once again. For us not to have to queue outside supermarkets , to be allowed outside other than essential shopping / exercise What will not improve my morale is seeing 20 football clubs playing games in empty stadiums, taking up recourse of the emergency services, taking up tests that could be used for front line staff / the general public to allow us to spee
