  1. This may get moved to the Transfer Forum but I'll post here initially as the departure of Ashton may open up a different approach to recruitment this summer, so it's quite topical. We have 14 players in the first team squad who are out of contract and coming off the wage bill (including the loans of Mawson & Sessegnon). This is a huge opportunity to completely reshape the squad in one window. We’ve heard Steve Lansdown say that covid-finances will make things tricky, and we’ve heard Pearson say that we will need to be very “clever” in the transfer market. With this in mind, I thou

  2. I’ve been watching City for 35 years and this is by quite some distance the city team I’ve disliked the most - I would not care one bit if i never saw the vast majority of this lot never pull on a City top again

  3. As soon as any breakaway is announced, the clubs concerned should be immediately banned from their domestic leagues and cup competitions. If they wish to come back, they start at level 10 in the pyramid of that country. **** 'em. Those clubs have lost all perspective and respect. Glad to see German and French clubs have refused to take part.

  4. There's talk the clubs who have signed up for this should have their records expunged for the last 3 years and the competition retrospectively awarded to the highest place legitimate club. That makes Bristol City 2018 League Cup winners. Admittedly I am the one that started the talk.

  5. At the end of the day it was the wrong decision, but not exactly a humongous gaffe. You can completely see why he's given the pen, and consequently the red card. HL gave the ref a decision to make and to be honest, at normal speed none of the tv replays were conclusive. You'd have to slow it down to frame by frame to be sure, which we presumably did do. On the pitch he didn't have that luxury. He saw the ball fired towards goal at pace, an outfield player throw his arms up towards the ball, coming very close to the crossbar and the ball deflected off something and went over. He had to mak

  6. Kick them out now. Expunge their records for this season. Get on with it Premier League. Don’t bother relegating anyone. 14 teams plus the 6 autos and playoff places....20 teams, make the other 3 x 22. 92 becomes 86. League Cup back to 2 legs for first two rounds. FA Cup Replays. The 20 PL teams can field proper sides because there’s no midweek European games. REAL football is back. **** the “greedy six”.

  7. I read OTIB every day. I read the latest on this thread every day. I read it at around 5:30pm yesterday evening then went out. Of course, I kept abreast of the scores and was well aware of the perfect storm swirling over the swamp. At around midnight, I looked at OTIB to see 15 unread pages on the newly renamed thread and it was past 1:30am before I reached the end. I'd like to thank each one of you utter bastards for keeping me awake so late and providing me with so many laughs!

  18. If my calculations are correct, Janneh is the twelfth academy player to appear for us this season, plus two more on the bench. That's obviously not including Moore or Massengo, or players like Nurse, Britton, Pring and Cundy who don't seem that far away from progressing next season. I know we've had a poor season but, giving that our youth output was pretty much Ribeiro and James Wilson in the period between Lita and Bryan, that's at least some sort of achievement. When was the last time we used that many academy products in a season?

  22. Thought he was absolutely class today. Him and Massengo very impressive. Very different types of players, but they look so good together. Only one game of course but that is what Bakinson is capable of. We saw it at the start of the season. With Semenyo being very quiet today and then taken off, I thought Bakinson was the only likely player to produce that bit of magic we needed. A great strike. Love how positive he is. Looks forward. A great first time passer of the ball. Always wants the ball. Got to stick with a player of his quality.

  23. American is better, because whatever your personal political views at least there is a decent chance it was made fairly ethically. When the Glazers took over Man Utd I did have a bit of a laugh at the owners, but at least I know where Walmart make their money. Russian owners like Abramovich & Demin are all basically thieves, mates of Putin who stole hugely from their people before getting out, whilst Chinese owners are going to be dodgy as **** if they are approved by their disgusting Government. Anyone who thinks anything to do with Dubai is going to be remotely ethical (he

  24. The gold standard of comedy relegations is where your fanbase has already celebrated staying up and have hung up banners to that effect, then you play an opponent wearing your away kit on the last day and from a combination of results that your shit-for-brains fans haven't foreseen you suddenly aren't staying up any more. Cue horse punching, tears, incoherent ranting etc. It's almost worth giving them hope - only to see it smashed like that.

  26. This is what you would generously call an embellished CV, or less generously, bull. Dave’s post above is the truth. But to add : Yes, he was here in a consultancy role throughout 2012. He essentially came in to set up a recruitment database (on behalf of his company Tactical Change). He sacked the head scout. He provided zero support to the then manager McInness resulting in what was a somewhat novice manager with a lack of Champ level contacts, and no head scout or scouting network to support him, leaving DMC to either source his own inferior players from Scotland and his limit

  34. A lot of the talk to stop this has been about sanctions against the clubs. But, as this shows, these "elite" clubs are but the money-spinning playthings for a collection of American, Russian and Arab billionaires who have as little interest in European football culture as my mum has in drum n' bass. Clear and wide-ranging sanctions need to be spelled out. 1) Clubs who take part will have their historic records expunged and need to return trophies won from Uefa-sanctioned competitions. There can be no readmittance. Once you're gone, you stay gone. 2) Players playing in this br

  36. I’d just like to briefly interrupt this chat about being cold to remind people that the Gas are shit, have virtually no fans left in Bristol, are not actually ‘coming for us’ like they claimed and may even go down before their own manager. What a bunch of utter clowns, no wonder we don’t take them seriously anymore As you were...

  38. Remember reading the overkill on here when he made that terrible mistake at Coventry “the worst player to ever play for us” apparently. Although he didn’t have the influence on today’s game of others I would be willing to bet that he is one of very few that are out of contract that we offer fresh terms to. There was one superb tackle on Harris second half & his availability, commitment & professionalism stands out. I do think we have real issues at right back (Hunt was poor again today & Simpson at 34 is merely a stop gap) but with Dasilva not someone you can bank on

  40. This 'incredible support' they talk of, is it numbers? No, we treble them numbers wise. Is it noise? No, their own supporters were moaning how quiet the mem has been. What do they base this constantly used delusional garbage on? Has a referee said their ground was so noisy it sounded like a full Nou Camp? No, that was us against Hartlepool. Is it numbers taken to Wembley? Can't be with a whole tier empty, which we filled easily for a game far less important than a play off final. They constantly spout it but I've no idea of it's basis.

  42. I agree the interviews are long, but never boring imo. Compared to our last 2 managers I could listen to NP all day. Imagine 30+ minutes of LJ - no, I'd rather not either! Nige is clearly a great bloke as well as a vastly experienced football man, who players with anything at all about them - so not every current City player by any means - will respond positively to. He's just the job for the club and the fans. Get it done SL.
