  1. Just because a few of our fancied names have actually applied for the job doesn’t mean the process is over, even better applicants may yet show their interest? There’ll be a deadline for applicants before the short list and interviews before final selection - who knows maybe Pep will fancy a real challenge .
  2. One of our neighbours kids who is four has been learning Spanish during the lockdown. But he still can’t say please in Spanish, which I think is poor for four.
  3. I’ve had a recurring dream where I think I’m a horse. 5 nights on the trot.
  4. That really is a great song to possibly run out to at our first home fixture after the lock down but could we also play the theme music to The Great Escape?
  5. Something else for the conspiracy theorists out there.... https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/books/2020/mar/05/theres-something-out-there-spread-of-disease
  6. It might just implode for a month or two- then it’ll be back with slightly higher prices to recoup their losses. No doubt the new contracts the sports channels offer will also be changed to prevent any future losses.
  7. Is the racing at Cheltenham still going ahead? I appreciate they’ve already had a few days of tens of thousands rolling around having a great time but it’s a bit odd that the ‘Sport of Kings’ gets the go ahead yet football in the same town gets cancelled.
  8. Maybe the club would be generous enough to make the Robins TV (or whatever it’s called) free to everyone during this difficult time? Those who have subscribed should get a few free months next season.
  9. Funnily enough the retired army major who gave us the lecture on Chinese espionage yesterday concluded his talk by saying we were probably doing the same thing when we created the empire.....
  10. That’s what happens when you eat bats and rats. Rather than push their agenda of extracting valuable minerals from African countries where they build roads and railways etc as a way to get covert information, they should put the effort in to producing proper food for their overpopulated country.
  11. In the ‘60’s (1968?) East St was really badly hit by flooding with loads of fags from Wills being deemed to risky to sell. So the fags were thrown away at the tip (now Imperial Park retail outlet) where lots of people found, sorted the best ones out and sold them! I don’t recall Ashton Gate itself getting flooded but I think Duckmoor Road and Luckwell Road may have done? Lots of flooding also occurred around the Malago in the area at the junction of St John’s Lane and Sheen Road.
  12. As per the OP’s name - where is the joy? Random, almost desperate attempt to find words which almost rhyme even if they don’t quite convey the intended message. I am so glad I’m way too old to have to listen to (c)rap ‘music like this . Everyone to their own but will this generation really look back misty eyed in their twilight years on this sort of shouty ‘music’?
  13. Another COBRA meeting today and looking ominous that major sporting events and other social distancing measures will be introduced? Bad news for the Sags on social distancing - no more marrying your sisters.
  14. I have the misfortune to work with a Villa supporter - who said exactly that when they sold him to us. He does get injured more than most but he also seems more than willing to put a shift in, maybe some of it is just in his head?
  15. Couple of things to point out to you here:- we - along with almost every other professional football team don’t make an operating profit. How come you acknowledge we have all these players with quality, flair and goals yet we don’t see it during the games we play - are you some sort of Bielsa type of spy at the training ground where all these players exhibit their talents? You seemed more confused than LJ on a match day!
  16. Look at other results in this league (e.g. West Brom v Wigan) and try to accept this is a league where anyone can beat anyone, especially when teams finally start fighting for their lives to avoid the drop (and in their wages). A draw at Millwall is ok, a win would have been great but refer to above. Of course what you really wanted to say was was LJ out - but you didn’t quite have the nerve to start another thread on the subject thankfully because we’ve heard it all before and nothing will happen until the season is over.
  17. I see Newcastle United have banned players from shaking hands at the training ground - something they’ve always done at the start of each session, to limit the risk of cross infection. Seems a bit extreme at first but when you consider the players are multi million pound ‘assets’ you wouldn’t want to risk losing one, let alone be the poor individual who gets infected. I’d have thought they would have made it mandatory to wash hands in sanitising gel before any contact amongst the players.
  18. Anything short of a win tonight and the other children will also be getting their crayons out to ask for Lee to be moved on. Then watch as 6 months down the line we have slid back to mid table and that manager gets a nice gardening leave package - to add to FFP, before we spin the tombola to find someone else who can talk the talk. No changes need to be made until after the season is finished. Better of trying and add some positive vibe to the atmosphere around the club, it might just get us where we’d like to be?
  19. Did the team fly up yesterday or are they scheduled to fly this morning?
  20. Has Storm Ciara done the Fewers a favour and relocated to Tent End to the proposed site of their new stadium?
  21. Have you evidence you can share with us ‘the child’ (sure his mummy will like that) that he wasn’t armed or maybe just why the nasty policeman randomly picked on him? South York’s police did have a bad reputation and no no doubt due to that they’re under more scrutiny than other forces so hopefully they’ve learnt from it. Maybe if the idiots who kicked off outside the Spanish Bar yesterday took their aggression into a boxing ring or somewhere more appropriate it would allow us scale back the police presence at our games - and keep our costs down. Also goes the selfish m
  22. I don’t think you could call him stupid. You wouldn’t like to be called stupid in whatever profession you earn a crust and yet LJ - love him or hate him, probably earns more in one year than you will in ten. We all want him and the entire club to be be successful and calling a person with his integrity stupid is just disrespectful.
  23. As always there are two sides to every story - so before we all judge on the ‘heavy hand of the police’ against a 16 yr old (and some 16yr olds these days are bigger than Desperate Dan) the least you can do is reserve judgement until you hear or see the other side - which you probably won’t until it possibly ends up in court.
