  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Released in the summer, so his future will be elsewhere whatever the outcome.
  7. Can I just once again stress my THEORY was one of several expressed as happens daily on any forum. it is very different from a rumour that alleges to have a basis in fact. Yes it evolved into a rumour (never my intention) and became so because other people either tried to take ownership of its source by claiming ITK knowledge or found the theory credible. I think in future that maybe I should refrain from speculating on plausible scenarios in forum discussions less my humour is again mistaken for attacks on individuals or the clubs reputation . Maybe I should also write to NASA and apologise for retweeting that the Moon Landing was fake in case I have damaged their credibility or that the Gas are getting a new stadium which is the wildest and most ridiculous theory yet. Now if I could just get back to enjoying my teams good start to the season perhaps we can put the Theory to bed, at least until our little French Prince himself moves on anyway.
  8. Sadly not. I am writing about an album (rap) that I’m currently producing with a young man with Aspergers who has a talent for words, alongside a few stories of other interesting young people that I have mentored over the years. Rest assured that there will be one or two mentions of the mighty reds in the book though.
  9. At my age I’m happy to accept any award given. Having said that I am currently writing a book ( non-fiction) and beginning to wonder if I shouldn’t stick to fiction after my imaginary Chelsea Theory . Its a mad world in Social media.
  10. Just don’t understand why LJ, MA and our 30 strong recruitment team, ( plus the Wales manager) with all the stats and figures available for almost every player in Europe should blatantly ignore the OTIB experts who clearly know that his legs have gone.
  11. As was said about Afobe. If we are to challenge for top 6 then we need a Centre back (and left back). Taylor Moore has done well so far but to expect too much of him could damage him long term. We have lost 2 big leaders (Pack and Wright) and maybe a back 4 option (TM more comfortable/trusted in a 3) so Williams ticks a few boxes for us.
  12. Yes purely conjecture and no disrespect intended to LJ but knowing how we analyse everything with the finest of details it will not have gone unnoticed if Leeds pitch was conducted by a ‘suit’ maybe their equivalent of MA. Ar the end of the day even with MA it may well have come down to the ‘big club’ syndrome as others have said. However it is good to know the sort of respect we now have in the football world and how close we came. In my opinion Afobe may just turn out to be a better option, with a chance to buy if it works out.
  13. It sounds like LJ, whilst impressing was ‘flying solo’ on the pitch and maybe MA was ,not surprisingly, busy on other deals. If MA (our best closer of deals) wasn’t there then maybe that was a mistake on our part. If that was the case then I think we can be confident that next time he will be there for such a crucial deal.
  14. I think it could work although it will take a few games to see if Moore is up to it.
  15. That would be my thought as Webster used to, although he didn’t have the benefit of 2 CB’s behind him or Nagy in front of him. If we play 4 then Nagy can provide cover or be an easy out for Baker and or Wright with their limited distribution skills. The danger of keeping either or both in is we tend to resort to just lumping it and bypassing our midfield where possession could be one of our greatest strengths this year.
