    Owls v Boro

    That move's working out really badly for Flinty ain't it...

    Seeing city players in public

    Saw Korey about a week ago and he's off the crutches but still hobbling.

    Well, he's going to be busy on Saturday that's for sure.

    Michelle Owen - Unity not Negativity

    Clearly you do mate, and it's interesting...since I've taken a backseat from watching games at City (second season without an ST after 10-ish with one) I just can't get as worked up about the current situation as you and others. What is happening is entirely predictable as far as I can see and given the apparent ambitions of the owner I sit back and just think 'we are where we deserve to be'. We pay middling wages at this level, we sold our three best players this summer and didn't really replace them with any significant quality. So, what are our expectations supposed to be this season? You can't keep asking your manager to overachieve every season, can you? What is happening now is a direct result of various **** ups over the last few years, starting with the shambolic summer of recruitment after our promotion from L1. Most recently it was January that is to blame. Zero ambition shown, and three shite signings which led the likes of Joe Bryan to effectively down tools and our promotion push was over before it had started. Now we have seen three key players on and off the pitch depart and you just can't lose that kind of influence in the team and expect to improve the following season unless you get lucky/invest properly. I'm sure LJ continues to make errors and I still don't think he has the required leadership abilities that get you consistent results at this level but for me the buck still stops at the very top. The overall plan and recruitment still seems muddled and I honestly think SL is either quite content with mid/top half C'ship football or he still doesn't understand what it is going to take to get out of this division.

    Buying a car, helpful advice required.

    It shouldn't influence your decision. If anything my thinking on buying a diesel this year was that in 5+ years I will likely be offered a generous scrappage deal for more than what the car will be worth to get it off the road.

    Arya Stark is a City fan

    As I commented on another thread, she pretty much said the opposite. She has no interest in football, didn't like going to football and therefore can hardly be classed as a City fan. It's just her Dad Gary is a big fan who still goes home and away.

    Are Wetherspoons pubs that bad?

    There will always be people abusing the system but thankfully they are a significant minority as the vast majority of people work hard and pay taxes all their lives. What's a real shame is that people don't seem to feel the same anger for people abusing the system at the top where it actually makes a significant difference, not your neighbour who's blagging a few hundred quid out the system but the bankers and fund managers fixing the markets. The massive corporations paying NO tax; only today it's been revealed Cadburys made £185m profit last year in this country and paid NO corporation tax because they are able to play the system. That is frankly disgusting. Instead of getting angry about people at the bottom of society, who have little impact on 'the system' anyway, it'd be nice if people turned their attentions to the con artists at the top who are the ones really screwing us ALL over. It just stinks of the same attitude of Brexiters 'blame the immigrants'. The most vulnerable. The easy target. Oh, hang on, EU migrants actually contribute more economically per person than the average Brit - d'oh! Anyway, what was the fruit juice starter like? Anyone?

    Yeah, sounds like her Dad (Gary is it?) did a good job of putting her off football for life!

    I had no idea who Malessa was...our sub keeper at the time apparently

    If you think you are a Bristol City senior red

    Fruit juice, cheese or ham salad and ice cream sounds like something you'd order a two year old off the kids menu.

    Change Of Ownership

    I was always under the impression the shares were split 50/50 between Steve and Maggie anyway. Sure Steve said this at a Q&A many years ago.

    Oh dear. Bristol getting well and truly dicked at Worcester. Currently 45-7 down after scoring first. Shocking result.
