    The man can certainly bullshit can't he?

    Short version: We planned to only sign Nketiah but Arsenal f'ucked us - again.

    It’s not bullshit, it’s him being honest about how he has to go about recruitment particularly in a January window. 

    Do you want him to lie and raise all our expectations to a frenzy i.e. like it has all by itself anyway?

    We could ask SL to find a few more coppers from down the back of the sofa but that’ll be just short term gain and we’ll be in the dock for FFP - as per the teams we’re all debating on here and enjoying being hopefully brought to account by the ever toothless EFL.

    LJ's been told to sell and generate his own funds...........even SL's pocket has it''s limits

    Over 50 signed.....1st team squad of 37....a big money summer signing from Chelsea not even making the bench and another summer arrival loaned out already. Understandable from SL.

    Ashton needs to move a few out but clearly hasn't managed to accomplish it yet.....hence the frustration from LJ and his barely concealed annoyance with MA.


    So you don’t know about  BW  going to Sunderland then?

    We hung on desperately for Nketiah until the last minute.

    It’s called negotiation - until a player makes their choice then it’s over  



    There was a reason we hadn't signed him earlier.

    Because we were after Eddie?

    Yes, Afobe looked good for us, and it was a cruel blow. 

    So, getting Adobe in was a good fit then after missing out on our primary target who turned us down!


    Will the club learn from its mistakes and sign a proper striker in January? We watch and wait. 


    Just gave you a few answers to your questions to help you sleep tonight.

    Johnson, the little git, is a lucky sod.

    If nothing else comes of today I hope Niclas will decide to stay with us.

    Hey Ho.

    Strange you don’t pick on the other little chap at Ashton Gate who won us the game today - Jay Dasilva?

    Its pathetic how people get annoyed that someone smaller than the average height is not deemed good enough to be a boss / manager in most businesses. I’m not into physcology but maybe someone who is could explain why that is. 

    Its all about teamwork behind the team and I’m sure the average height of our backroom staff are, well, average height - just like myself.

    Looking at some of the comments I think people will start spontaneously combusting soon, so should calm down a bit.

    Exactly. How do they think Man Utd and Man City felt when we played them off the park - just how we did at Shrewsbury tonight- gutted!

    This is life, nothing is a given in football, yes it’s embarrassing but us beating Utd back then gave us all something to remember for the rest of our lives and tonight’s it’s Shrewsbury’s turn to have that dream. 

    Its time to get together and not self destruct.

  6. When  we went up to the old 1st Division, did we actually have or need an ‘identity’ or did we just try to win games?

    Too many people are on here are obsessed with an identity, move on - next season it’ll be a new buzz word!

    (and people like to play buzz word bingo when MA speaks yet when it’s on here...)

    I think uncle steve might be a little p****d off at the money he throwing at the football and rugby and both on poor run results, maybe hes told LJ no more money as you have 2 games to save your job 

    I’m sure he knows you can’t take it with you...not that we want him to go anywhere at all in the foreseeable future

    Being coached here would kill Walsh’s career. Massengo, Nagy and Palmer have got worse since they’ve had the benefit of City’s coaching team 

    Maybe that’s why Tammy Abraham’s career never really took off?

    That could be the reason but my mate who met Tommy Rowe in a pub tells me that Rowe and LJ had a blazing row over whether it is pronounced "scone" or "scone", LJ has exiled him from the team and now Tommy Rowe has told Bas Savage not to re-sign for us...

    The real reason Rowe and LJ have fallen out is the book Rowe got LJ for the clubs Secret Santa - ‘Build your own tombola in a day’.

    Got to laugh or you’d cry..

    But the RAF doesn't mind when it suits

    Last summer a chinock turned up at Alton Barnes(near devizies) to take white chalk to the top of the hill

    Think a similar thing happened at Uffington white horse and Glastonbury Tor

    Not to mention the river bridge crossing at Congresbury that I think was featured on a postage stamp

    If any of the above is incorrect,please let I know cos its all in my scrambled head.

    I think the RAF sees these opportunities to both help out the local communities and get some free TV advertising time for a career in the service? 

    Not a problem as far as I’m concerned as it’s really only costing some fuel as everything else - men and machines, has been paid for and it’s better than normal training exercises.

    come on mark what is your opinion on the last four games and the home form. you talk the talk when we are winning would be nice to hear what you are thinking about results and what are going to do about this situation. 

    So, if you worked in recruitment in a multi million pound business (Airbus etc) would you think it’s acceptable to publicly comment on a manager (coach in this case) in the same business but different area of the business, especially as you’re not even qualified in that area of the business? 

    Everyone is desperate for results - especially at home, to get back on track and putting up this thread as another standalone LJ out thread isn’t at all helpful.

    Good for them.


    Bonfire ‘fortnight’ was a while ago now, just selfish indulgent behaviour which will get the club fined again. Hopefully the children who let them off get identified, get a banning order and then get to stay home to let as many flares off in their garage as they like - just as well set firs to £10 notes.

    If you want a proper pub go to the Coopers on Ashton Road. 

    If you're into 'ales' you won't go far wrong with the Bristol Beer Factory (tap room) in North St, opposite Ashton Gate primary school, less than 10 minutes from the ground depending on how much you enjoy their beers!


    Plenty of other bars and pubs along North St to choose from, shouldn't be any trouble whatsoever along there.

    Don't forget to buy your Clarks pie from the van outside the ground to enjoy the whole Bristol gastro pub food experience on one day!

  14. Things do need to change but we need a viable and affordable alternative before this is considered yet another tax raising tactic. 

    Electric cars are a solution but no secondhand market exists yet and the thought of everyone who lives in flats having extension leads going way down to the parking area to recharge their car is another reality check the tree huggers of this world haven’t considered. 

    I usually ride my bike 5 miles to the ground but a time will come when that’s not an option for me and public transport is currently useless. 

    Many years ago (30?) I wrote into the EP letters page to suggest the government made all public transport free to minimise private car use but it obviously got ignored.

    The week before, home to Scunthorpe in the League Cup. Their goal went in off Cashley's rear end! Don't worry, we won that game 3-1 and the following Tuesday was that game against Hull. I don't remember foggy though. It was raining heavily and I was one of just a few on the Open End.

    The ball was brown and as mentioned, bounced once and passed over the head of Wealands who had come out of his goal to catch  the ball.

    I was also in the Open End that night, probably sheltering by the Hospital Broadcast box if it was still there at the time.

    I get Robbered can be annoying at times but the way people go out of their way to try and pick a fight with him after every comment he posts is embarrasing and says more about them. Plus he's right in this case. Seeking confirmation of something that has already happened is entirely different from speculating about something that may happen. 

    Exactly this.

    If his posts were by anyone else it would be accepted and almost ignored but once the R name is up there they seem to think they have a right to attack the poster - not the post. 

    It’s the same with certain players who get picked on - like Pato, some posters continuously looking for every minor mistake but ignoring other players who also may have had a bad game.

    Once the person who has been chosen as the latest incumbent to be selected for persecution leaves the club they’ll just pick on the next  ‘weakest’  player to vent their spleen and so it goes on. 

    People pay their money and have a right to criticise but being so negative to the point of bullying via the keyboard achieves nothing except adding a negative feel to the club.

    And no I’m not a happy clapper!
