  1. Good news for us anyway, and no excuses for us not to be the fresher of the two teams, even if they will likely rest a number of players for the cup game.
  2. Reading must have been bonkers to agree to play us on the 28th given they play this Wednesday, Saturday and then the Friday after they play us. Four games in 10 days! Genuinely can't understand it...
  3. He was recommended to City by someone I know when he was a 16 year old at Pompey... Finally filling his potential.
  4. LJ was on £500k pa before he signed his last contract renewal so I expect he got a decent pay rise but still wouldn't have thought he's anywhere near £1m pa. Even a generous 20% pay rise would only have him on £600k (I say "only" you know what I mean!) £4m pa would represent a sizeable and not insignificant % of our annual wage budget. As you say, getting in a global name as coach and investing him is one way of doing things. Don't get me wrong I wouldn't be completely against the idea providing it was the right man however you and I both know it simply won't happen as long as SL is running the club, so imo pretty pointless debating the idea!
  5. About eight times as much as what Johnson gets paid. Is Bielsa eight times better?!
  6. Mmm interesting. How is the current owner's position tenable? Surely he has to go. When they come back up to the Prem there is going to be some serious scrutiny over their book-keeping again. Apparently the Prem are already insisting on accounts having to be published on a half-season basis.
  7. "Stay of execution"? I must admit it is kinda cute that people actually think LJ has been, or is close to being, fired at any point this season. He didn't get the sack when we'd lost nine games on the spin and were plummeting towards relegation in March 2017. He's hardly going to get sacked after three wins in four with us in the play-off hunt with pretty much zero chance of going down.
  8. Confirmed they'll be relegated this season! Some weight off Bristol's shoulders with no threat of relegation. Now, any good players we can pinch?? I can't believe that the Farrell and Vunipolas of this world will stick around in the Championship, even if it's only for one season? Inevitably they'll manage to retain a fair chunk of their squad though and will piss promotion. Will still set them back years from their current position though. Those players must surely be feeling very let down by the Saracens management...
  9. Mr Average. But still our best performing manager at this level since his Dad. Better than five other Lansdown picks: Coppell, Millen, McInnes, O'Driscoll and Cotterill. In the context of the club's history, over the past two years we've been a solid top 10 Championship side teetering on the edge of the play-offs, or in fact spending a fair bit of time in the top 6. Beating Mourinho's Manchester United and reaching the semi-finals of a major domestic cup competition. In the context of the club's history these are not "average" achievements, they are very good ones. Even his time spent as manager - four years - is not average, it's well above average. So excuse me whilst I call bullshit on your "forget who he is the day after he's left" claim.
  10. Surely not a surprise given the prize on offer? It's turned into quite a big game for the club now.
  11. Arsenal do want his loan sorted asap. Problem is, like most players, Nketiah has an agent. And a greedy one at that; who wants to squeeze every last penny out of the deal for himself.
  12. "We understand he is going out on loan to Bristol City"
