  1. Time to close things down for a while. Surely the Government and FA will act now or else in a few weeks time our services will not be able to cope. Hard though it is to accept there are more important things than football.
  2. So if the same self isolating applies Forest players first day clear would be the day of their match with us. Not sure they would be happy playing a game on their first day back
  3. They would get tested but it takes 5-6 days to emerge and it seems that anyone that has any contact with a carrier (whether or not they get it) have to self isolate.
  4. If he met the team as reported then it is likely they will have to self-isolate for 14 days one assumes so match in doubt
  5. The fans may not notice a difference but the owners will. All clubs will lose crucial revenue and some will probably fold as they would not be able to pay their players/staff. It must be a worry for poor Wally.
  6. All the talk this week has been about the January signings either not being up to speed or not yet adapting to our system. This is what you get with January signings so really should be no surprise that they are left out. It doesn’t mean that they won’t be good enough but some things can’t be rushed and their inclusion is a problem at the moment. Korey back is a bonus but seen nothing to warrant Callum being in.
  7. It comes with the luxury of having to constantly sell your best players. We are in the play off positions, just won 4 on the bounce and keep improving year on year despite having to sell our best assets every year. One defeat on the bounce though proves the point that 4 wins don’t, but I suppose when angry fingers have been patiently waiting weeks to bash their keyboards we should not be surprised.
  8. 150/1 gotta be worth a bet at that price. Get the new guys settled in and anything is possible in this league.
  9. I think that they are very serious about Brownhill which has brought Wells/Vydra into play. QPR can not afford to buy Wells and Burnley like ourselves need to wheel and deal to get what they want. It could get interesting.
  10. Or maybe Vydra and Wells as we need 2 strikers
  11. This was not a dig at the ‘younger’ singing section who do a great job pushed into a single section and have come up with their own classics in recent years. It was an observation that at least at the other end of the South Stand there was more atmosphere yesterday and that is for the hierarchy to consider. Personally when I was young I never sang and I never have (just not my thing) but I appreciate those who do of whatever age. I don’t get this divisive thing people are trying to create, it doesn’t matter whether we have 2 singing sections the more the merrier because what makes Ashton Gate special is people having a great day out. If mine was better yesterday hearing some old classics then what’s the problem. Some people are just a little too sensitive and insecure these days. It’s not a competition it’s about sharing the love for the club we support. I enjoy coffee and I hate cider but that doesn’t mean that I can’t go down the Gate and enjoy the experience.
  12. I was really not looking forward to yesterday half expecting a really toxic atmosphere if we struggled. It was cold and not particularly inspiring in S20 and then the singers started behind us. It was like going back in time to days of old, like going to a gig with a tribute band only to find the original band had reformed and turned up. It transformed the atmosphere and gave everyone a lift. No disrespect to the singing section but this was proper old skool and suddenly the Gate felt like home again. To all those that were singing back up there thank you. It’s the most fun some of us oldies have had down there for a long time. Whilst the players were taking the applause at the end it was you lot that made the day for many of us. As the game went on talk amongst us turned to the likes of Gerry Gow and Norman Hunter amongst others. I think if the former was looking down on us yesterday he would have had that smile and a glint in his eye that he had as he introduced himself to the opposition with his opening tackle. Ah memories but also a lesson to the hierarchy about creating an atmosphere at the Gate.
  13. Deals can be agreed pre-window and lined up only for an unexpected factor such as a change of agent to mess it all up. That’s the nature of football these days even with the best planning deals can fall through. January is the same every year and yet people seem surprised and eager to blame recruitment. It is what it is.
  14. In these days of click bait it is mostly smoke without fire. The smoke comes from a mixture of uninformed gossip and agents stirring the pot during the window. Any stick to beat the manager with is quickly used by those who have had to wait longer than usual for a bad run to return to their agenda. As others have noticed the majority of supporters that don’t use the forum tend to be oblivious to the annual ‘Johnson out’ campaign that will have as much impact on the owner as an extra couple of pence on the price of petrol.
  15. To be honest I feel singing the ‘gas song’ almost makes them relevant these days and they probably love the attention on national tv. I’m not sure if many of the kids (anyone under 18) understand the rivalry as it’s not really been an issue in their entire lives. We have aspirations of Premier League and singing about some tinpot team seems needless these days. There again I suppose this thread keeps us amused but it’s almost like a secret pleasure that we don’t need to share with other clubs.
