  1. Possibly, but if you look at the overall benefits of the 2012 Olympics, I would say these things are worth it. There is an intrinsic value to hosting these events. The 2012 Olympics were unbelievable, the scenes in Hanham when the torch came through will live with me forever. When I look back on my life the 2012 Olympics were and are, a source of pride and excitement, a high point that I will look back on and treasure forever. Sometimes you have to do something that just makes you happy. If you don’t, if you just count beans and attribute value that way, it’s a very unfulf

  2. Why Bristol - the most underachieving sports city in England - is finally stirring from its slumber Bristol is the biggest city never to have hosted Premier League football but under new boss Nigel Pearson, City may finally buck that trend ByTom Morgan, SPORTS NEWS CORRESPONDENT2 March 2021 • 8:00am Bristol City manager Nigel Pearson (right) celebrates with Famara Diedhiou after victory at Swansea CREDIT: PA Bristol has an uneasy relationship with success.

  4. In short yes, but a full answer in full i think: Life long Bristolian who loves all the sport in the city and I think watched both clubs in the early days, but when son Jon came along and followed him to footy, Jon was 100% city and Dad followed suit (very luckily for us I think!)... Top owners in my view and Jon gets unfair stick - city 100% through and through and a proper city fan with a wealthy dad..

  5. I'll pass on your expert opinion to my lifelong City supporting daughter who is shortly off to her nightshift where I am proud to say she will be one of the health professionals looking after Steve tonight. I cannot quote her directly but this occurrence of pneumonia after Covid is not at all uncommon and after a year of hellish experiences the doctors and nurses at the BRI are better able than ever to treat it. As for the above rant, I simply wish you had seen what she has seen over the last year as I think you might take a deep breath and get over yourself.

We wasted years, when we had money, and SC and Burt had given us a golden egg. Anyway. We finally have a decent guy, let's now give him the tools.

  16. For all of LJ's self-promotion and talk of spending time with the Marines. the NHS, other clubs abroad, drones, grass length, marginal gains etc for me he lost all credibility as a leader when he threw players under the bus (Magusson & Moore certainly, probably more?) - a proper leader just simply wouldn't do that. That would be kept behind closed doors no matter what your profession.

  18. Classic distraction tactic from the Govt, with the success of the vaccine rollout (which they will claim but really is the success of the NHS, Army logistics etc...) and no-one being able to go to football, what better way to make people forget about 122k dead and billions of pounds wasted throughout this pandemic with money to mates, people who run pubs, people who make jewellery, people who can't make PPE, apps that don't work......what better way to distract everyone than to go for a World Cup bid?

  25. This really, really disappoints me. I place my trust in Chris Witty, Patrick Vallance, Jonathan van Tam, et al, along with the opinions of those on the frontline who have been battling to keep mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, sons, daughters, alive for the last year. If you don't believe them, if you think that when they speak at press conferences they are somehow puppets of the mainstream media or of the government, then I'm sorry to say that seems pretty close to being brainwashed to me. Occam's razor, the simplest explanation is usually the right one. The entire world wouldn't

  27. I do wonder if the situation left Holden feeling he needed to risk players fitness. Experience shouldn't make a difference, being a player he should know what the dangers are, but in his first job and on a really poor run? Yes, player may have said he was fit, medical team may have said the same. But that bit where Pearson mentioned being fit to play was telling.

  29. Living in Southampton I heard on radio Bristol that City had some more tickets and would sale them the next morning. So I decided the only way I would get a ticket for the Hull City match was to drive up to Bristol a que. So I set off for Bristol at around 20.00 and got to the gate parked up about 22.00. Their were lots of people queuing up around the car park walls. Luckily it was a dry night and keep myself awake by talking to other fans and going for a walk, people keep your place in the que. We were expecting the tickets to go on sale around 09.00. As i got closer to the ticket office I h

  33. I fully expected the onslaught of the condescending backlash. Respect folks. I made the very point about Steve Cotterall in the start and end of the post so for me it was fine. Cider Red; one might suggest the same about main stream media where you lot seem to be basing your views. Fact of the matter is the world has been told the diagnosis is correct and the tests are accurate... tell it enough and back it up with 'statistics' based on nothing then people will obviously believe. if you take a step back for a moment and truly research these two points, and i stress TRULY researc

  34. For a poster that used to give some interesting facts, I cannot believe the drivel posted. Its Covid derived pneumonia and is a result of Covid, so to try and belittle something that could be fatal is disgusting. Yes we are fortunate that people are isolating and with the flu jab have prevented the annual deaths due to flu, this does not make it ok that people have died of Covid instead.

  36. Sorry to hear Steve C is unwell again. Covid pneumonia though? whatever next? Covid Flu of course, then Covid Cancer... what a bloody joke; Did anybody know that Health England has recorded zero, yes zero, flu deaths in the past year (according to even the busted flush of MSM 'The Spectator'). Everything is now covid. It is a crime to rename everything remotely approaching respiratory illnesses of which there are dozens so that it fits the agenda of ensuring as much funding is re-directed to those that administer the ill as well as those that make the equipment and the drugs; enriching al

  37. Strangely, I was talking to a member of that crew the other day and, he was telling me how green they are when other teams are getting advantages by getting in the ear of the ref and conning the officials. I said, I can't believe you're coming out with that f*****g rubbish and reminded him about the last few seasons of penalties and red cards awarded, due to pressure put on the referee from the touchline, by the players, the supporters and the dugout. Apart from their historical get in amongst them and kick them up in the air policy, that's been part of their profile since Gerry Francis took o

  38. It makes you wonder what on earth Holden and the coaches were thinking when sticking Paterson, Lansbury and Williams into the side when they clearly weren't fit. You would hope we don't start a player until they've completed 90 minutes for the under 23s. This really isn't difficult. It's just common sense.

  44. It's also a timely reminder that Covid is really something you need to avoid at all costs. It isn't minor, it isn't flu. Sadly, Cotts is following an altogether familiar path as being reported by doctors of patients, seemingly otherwise fit, who 'recover' from their infection only for two or three weeks later to relapse, often fatally (which clearly I trust won't happen in Cotts case.) There's a raft of identified associated 'long Covid' impacts and they're horrible, life-long, debilitating conditions. For those 'immortals' out there the bad news it's the younger and fitter folks who are
