  1. What a video... Towler is as Bristolian as they get...

  2. From now on I want Riley Towler to be filmed every day being asked his opinion on some sort of philosophical question. The world would instantly be a better place.

  3. Surely it is a case of trying to keep the pub afloat, rather than just trying to rip off supporters. The rest of the week they seem to be extremely cheap, which is to try and just get punters through the door. I am only guessing, but at those prices all year round there is probably a fair chance that they would not be opening at all. If it is £4.20 then that seems to be fairly cheap in todays market regardless, and they will certainly have higher costs due to the football with bar staff, door staff etc. I'd rather go in there at £4.20 (any day of the week) than the Tobacco Factory myself. Bottom line is if anyone doesn't like their policy then they can choose to go elsewhere, and pay the other places standard prices, which are a lot more expensive.

  6. The assets have been frozen, not confiscated. This is about preserving the status quo pending eventual legal proceedings so that justice can be done. Without the freezing of assets, there is a high probability that they will be moved out of the jurisdiction avoiding justice.

  8. Hi All, apologies in advance if this is the wrong home for this thread, if so, admin please re-house to the correct place! Am based in Warsaw, and we've obviously been hit by a huge wave of people fleeing the war. The response has been amazing from both Poles and expats here, but it remains utterly heartbreaking seeing this first-hand. The news does not tell even a fraction of the stories. Anyhow, many of the kids are arriving with nothing; have been raising toys and suchlike for some of them, but was thinking it would be great to give out some City (or other teams!) related stuff - NOT kits or scarves. This being Poland, it's not inconceivable some moron will mistake theses colours for a rival Polish team! Instead, am thinking of little things kids can keep private and just treasure as something personal: key fobs, stickers, penants, even any old programmes. Obviously any postage fees would be covered by myself in advance. If you can help, please drop me a private message. Thanks!

  15. How precisely is his freedom being taken away, other than his freedom to sell Chelsea for megabucks then - checks notes - ah, yes, "donate" the money to war victims? He isn't being detained. He lives in unabashed luxury in Israel and Monte Carlo. See my other post on what a massive gangster he is. He should never have been allowed into the UK in the first place, let alone be passed a fit and proper person to own a major English football club. Still, he'll appreciate your concern.

  16. He should never have been allowed to take ownership of a UK football club. Definitely not a "fit and proper" person. In 1990, he had a market stall in Moscow selling Russian dolls, in 1992 he went to prison for a year for stealing state assets, by 1995 he is a billionaire in charge of the entire Russian denationalised aluminium industry and its second largest oil company. At no point would he and Berezovsky have had the assets to buy the refineries, mines, resources that they "acquired". In his rise are murdered aluminium and oil workers, murdered commodity brokers and murdered journalists who investigated the racket. He's perhaps the biggest crook to ever own an English club, and considering Maxwell, Oyston and some of the other previous owners, I don't make that statement lightly.

  19. Tautology that’ll work. The fact is it’s borderline senseless in a serious statement. As I said. It is there duty to get the best offer (in your words the best deal for the creditors which I’m sure is accurate) not the best valuation. This stuff is just indicative of how unprofessional they are. Yes the third paragraph is of course my point. This company appears so far out of their league it’s laughable. Unfortunately Derby will be out of their league too before very long because of it!

  21. You are correct where the criminal law is concerned of course but that doesn't apply to civil matters. Official bodies make all sorts of decisions all the time. So e.g. if you claim benefits the courts don't decide the claim DWP does on the basis of social security law. If you believe the decision to be wrong in law you can appeal to a tribunal and from there, if granted leave, can appeal to the upper tribunal and so on up the hierarchy.

  22. If you've not already done so then please write to your MP and ask them to support the fan led review's recommendation of introducing a football regulator. Ask them to speak to Richard Gould and Steve Lansdown about our club supporting the fan led review. If your MP is a Conservative then ask them to lobby Johnson and Dorries to get the regulator into the Queen's speech. If your MP is not a Conservative ask them to set aside party rivalries and support the fan led review. Make it clear that your vote hangs on football being reformed. The fan led review may not be a perfect set of recommendations, but it is something that has a) happened, b) has support, and c) now needs backing to ensure it actually has a chance to bring about some meaningful change.

  23. Agreed, the ground is a rip off. Used to stay in the Sun all game at times and have a few beers with a few City. The Sun is a typical local pub trying to survive when 100s of other pubs have been closing. I hope the Sun does well. Don’t see it as a rip off on match days compared to AG drinks prices.

  30. Any batsman with an ounce of mental strength has booked themselves in for bed and breakfast on this pitch. Bairstow and Bonner dug in before cashing in, Lees lived up to my expectations. I’d have kept faith with Hameed. It made no sense to send him and his low hands onto the bouncy pitches Down Under, only to leave him out on slow, low docile decks like this. He’s one opener who can bat long.

  32. Gone to League 1 or 'proper' gone? "Potential purchasers that remain interested" is possibly a tautology rather than an oxymoron. An oxymoron is a statement that contradicts itself. The classic example is "Microsoft Works". A tautology is where you unnecessarily say the same thing twice in a different manner. "It is our duty to secure an appropriate valuation". They are slightly misusing the word 'valuation'. Their duty is to get the best deal for the creditors. Implicit in that duty is a requirement that they realise the sale of the club for the most money they can get. The words 'an appropriate valuation' are what they have chosen to replace the more vulgar truth that is 'the most money we can gouge out of a gullible bidder for this absolute car crash of a company'. As to your third paragraph. Yeh, seems like it maybe wasn't just evil old Steve Gibson preventing the glorious resurrection of Wayne Rooney's Derby County FC.

  33. Worth a read about why Roman didn't end up in Switzerland (where he wanted to move from London) but instead had to go to Israel, where an automatic right to citizenship is available to anyone with at least one Jewish parent. https://www.cityam.com/roman-abramovich-accused-money-laundering-and-crime-links/

  34. When is a door not a door? When it’s ajar. Are ajar doors really doors? Are jars doors? Also, what is a wheel? A Polo mint has a hole in the middle so put two on a pencil and you have two wheels on a shaft. Do donuts with a hole in the middle count as wheels? Is a revolving door just one door, or do you count every individual door that makes up the whole? Sometimes French doors are called French windows, so are they doors or windows. This is making feel like a lie down in a dark room

  35. Have they ever found anybody to not be fit and proper? Looking at the scumbags that have owned football clubs over the last few years, I don't think the guidelines are anywhere close to being fit and proper.

  36. Pearson as much as revealed that Kalas is out yesterday. He isn’t going to play a back four, either. Have a hunch we might see a first start for Cundy, he went off at a bit of a tangent with one answer & in it talked about a need for aerially dominant centre halves. My guess is Bentley Scott Klose Cundy Atkinson Dasilva Williams HNM Weimann Martin Semenyo

  42. Doors. Don't forget that although a car has 4 wheels, a standard "family car" is often referred to as a 5 door car. Then again the steering wheel would make 5, 6 if you have a spare as well. However, a house has many doors - front door, backdoor(s) bedroom doors, wardrobe doors, bathroom doors, bathroom cupboard. A kitchen has cupboard doors, washing machine has a door, dishwasher...... **** it. I'm off to bed

  43. I think that's a very naïve explanation of how he went from market stallholder and jailbird to billionaire in two years. It's Abramovich's account, but it doesn't square with multiple other accounts. No one is being executed by the British home secretary over this. This man should not have been allowed into the UK in the first place. I'm hopeful that our rep as the dodgy money capital of Europe may be over.

  48. Thanks for your support but I'll decide how to waste my own time thanks. There's some good stuff in there that can potentially help organisations to steer policy. People get incredibly hot and bothered on here about anti-social behaviour, cocaine use, finances in football, the role of the EFL, the atmosphere at the Gate, hell some weirdos even care about colourblindness. All of that is covered in the survey and people seem more than happy to waste their time arguing about those topics on here...so why not actually engage with the entities that control this stuff?
