  1. Nothing sums our side up better than 30 stone Akinfenwa dancing around our whole defence only to be kept out by a great save by Bentley. It’s absolutely pathetic.
  2. This is fantastic and it shows that the voices of fans can still be heard. Those leading the project are going to lose a lot of money. As someone mentioned, surely the position of all owners and Chief Executives are pretty much untenable. They’ve shown their hand and it’s clear that they care little about the views of fans.
  3. If the Super League was a gif:
  4. He's probably getting a bit nervous that the value of the Premier League will be significantly devalued. I saw a stat a few years ago that the Premier League clubs, the league and players paid £3.3bn in tax which can have only increased in recent years. Whilst they will still pay tax, the amount coming into the coffers could decrease a fair bit. Additionally, it's an easy points score given the outrage of many fans. As you mention, I'm not really sure what he can do!
  5. Get in Bakinson. Forza the Robins High Performance Centre.
  6. Since we have moved to the Robins High Performance Centre, our results have been: Bristol City 0 - 2 Stoke City Coventry City 3 - 1 Bristol City Bristol City 0 - 0 Nottingham Forest Sheffield Wednesday 1 - 0 Bristol City Thank god we have the High Performance Centre. If it was just a training ground we would have no doubt failed to get a point from the Forest game.
  7. That's me done with this season after today. The players have been on the beach for weeks and I can't wait for half of them to leave in the summer. What a shambles this club is at the moment.
  8. It really is a summer of sink or swim for the club and it really could Lansdown's last roll of the dice. As he said, he's not getting any younger and the talk of welcoming external investors is the first signs that I've seen that he is thinking of the future of Bristol City with less of an involvement from the Lansdown family. The club has become a lot more corporate since Ashton has been involved with many negative sides to this but I don't think him moving on is the panacea for City. We need to bring in someone who is highly regarded in the football community and hopefully have more se
  9. Thankfully I’m not linking him to us as his loan spell was woeful. This stat from yesterday is pretty remarkable:
  10. As Downsy said, the excitement is building for the drive-in cinema - I'm sure most on here can't contain themselves. We can watch our favourite films in the car park of Ashton Gate. Perhaps we should just tarmac over the pitch and use it all year round so we want some entertainment in BS3.
  11. There's players out there with huge bonuses but those tend to be for more marquee signings. I know of a misfiring Premier League striker who is on £115k a week but has a bonus of £70k per goal (in case the weekly wage wasn't a big enough incentive to do the job he is paid to do!). Others have bonuses for finishing in the top half of the table etc. A more reasonable goal bonus would be 10 to 20 percent of the weekly wage and I'd expect the forward players at City to have a similar goal bonus in addition to promotion clauses which are standard for Championship squads.
  12. From my understanding of another club's finances, the wages quoted are quite far off the mark. The quoted figure for some is about 50% higher than their actual salary but a few aren't a million miles away.
  13. I could see Holden getting involved at Salford. He’s from there, his family have been based up north this whole time.
