  1. Whilst I agree, his work rate Is still amazing, and he has what, 9 goals thus season? Great header off the line in the first half as well.
  2. I don't think we were dreadful in that game, just not particularly good at times. Barnsley looked neat, and tidy; and should have taken at least one of their good chances. That said not many saves for either keeper in the game. Great save to push Williams header onto the crossbar in the 1st half though, after we had already hit the post througb one if tbeir players. Yes, we rode our luck at times; but then so did they. Two teams who looked far from clinical in their respective finishing. Reminded me of the home game against Hull last year (93rd min Fammy winner) after countless misses for both teams. You could see the First team to score would won the game. 3 wins in 4 (yes I know against the bottom 3, but you still have to win them), and all clean sheets. 10 days break, followed by a winnable game at Reading. It's a funny old season; even Wed got hammered at home to Blackburn. Most teams are much of a muchness. Hopefully a couple of signings, and Afobe back in March; and we might sneak in there with Kalas back to his best as well. I'm not a LJ supporter, but hard to make the argument for change at the moment, whilst still being able to grind out results (in the league of course.)
  3. Good points @Phileas Fogg Although results have of course been woeful over the last couple of months; lots of other teams have gone through similar runs (Preston,Forest,Fulham etc). I think the main difference with our situation is a lot to do with LJ's personality. Fans have just become tired of his chopping, and changing; bizarre selections, transfers and attempted humour. Over time the same old sound bites start to really grate. The apparent lack of passion, determination; and emotional intelligence of the man come to the fore. He seems to have run out of ideas at the moment, with regard to the team on the pitch. He's certainly run out of things to say in interviews. As others have said, if we hadn't played the two worst teams in the division recently; it would have been 8 losses in a row; and a cup home draw against a lower league team. Whereas in the past, when we went on these awful runs; there was a core willing to support him; now I think that's been eroded. SL won't get rid of him. Like a load of teams we are still in with a mathematical chance of the playoffs; and half way through the transfer window. We won't go down this season, but I would be amazed if we start next season with LJ in charge. In the summer, when emotions have settled down, and a full review is done. I'm sure the hierarchy will recognise what changes need to be done.
  4. Dave, growing up in Houston (as well as numerous other places). I used to go to the Summit to watch the Rockets play. I think with the diversity in Bristol, I'm confident we could grow the Flyers; like the Bears are at the moment; into the largest average attendance in the league. I'm not sure what the other teams averages are. But we seem to out grown our present place
  5. It would be good if the basketball arena goes ahead as planned at least. I'm not sure what the budgets are for teams in the BBL. But with a decent side, I'm confident we would be able to fill 4,000. Could also be used for smaller concerts as well of course.
  6. Silence is golden though isn't it. I think we're already making plans for his departure. Who knows, it may come in this window; if we can replace him.
  7. Agreed, he eems to be a little bit better this season with the ball at his feet. At times last season he had the touch of a concrete wall. Great header against Shrewsbury in the cup,and reading at home though. I just don't think he actually gets up into the air particularly well, particularly to diagonal balls that we seemed intent on hitting at him.
  8. Big fan of Preston as well, and the amount of penalties they've had this season.
  9. Very devisive player of course with fans, and can have games that go horribly wrong. But from the opinions of the fans that i respect, they recognise the effort he puts in; and when he plays well, and is on form; he's a top player. Will miss Dave, when he's not here.
  10. I agree Jon. The club haven't bought him up in any contract conversations with Gregor. I can only assume he will off to pastures new. I think we'll miss him. Particularly, strangely enough from a defensive point of view. The games when he was suspended, we got hammered at set pieces.
  11. Reg, as we all sit together at football; I can safely say he keeps my boys entertained with his constant abuse of the ref; and linesman. He mentioned to me, that he's aware of what the forums say; but wants to stay off them, as apart from a few; they are full of idiots nowadays. Got as much chance of Eddie signing, of Graham coming back in the short term.
  12. Whilst the focus has been on Brownhill's contract being up summer 2021. The fact that Fammys is up as well seems to have been overlooked. I know there will always be views of his performances. But in the last month, I'd have him down as our most in form player. He's been in double figures for the last 3 seasons, and to replace him properly would arguably cost a lot more than the £5.5 m he cost. Rumours abound of foreign interest (Turkey, Portugal etc). They obviously see a player who has performed at an International stage. Like Brownhill, and Eliason; I think we're going to have to pay him top dollar to stay with us going into his last year. Whether he fancies a change of scenery is another matter of course.
  13. How does the womans game work with regard to budgets etc? We've done well to keep going in the Super League for the last few years; and unlike Yeovil or Notts County we of course wont go bust. But what is the goal or objective? Any decent player we get; only stays for a year or so; Lucy Graham being a good recent example. Whilst being glad we have a woman's team. I wonder what the plan is for the next 5 years is with the team? We seem to be naturally drifting downwards; in lieu of the top flight teams finally getting their act together.

    Really really pleased for him, that hes doing so well for Plymouth at the moment. There have been times in the past, when I've watched him, and thought there's such a player in there; just waiting to burst out. Unfortunately the first part of this season; he seemed to be stagnating. We were obviously waiting for the right loan for team. The heirachy obviously believe in him, and as theyve given him a new 3 year contract. My only criticism from the times I've watched him, is his contribution off the ball. He sometimes switches off; and doesn't track his man back. Hopefully that'll improve with age..
  15. Best get him to sign a contract then. Or at least offer one.
