  1. 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.

    So are we saying this could be a masterstroke by Boris?!

    Haven't heard much about Rugby? They still being played?

    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.

    b) I'm not sure that any British person is in a position to criticise any other country over the exploitation of countries across the African or Indian sub continents.

    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.....

    Hopefully that scabby country has learnt a lesson. Doubt it though.

    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.

  5. 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. 

  6. 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’?

    What’s the matter with the guy? Is he made of glass ffs.........:disapointed2se:

    Im struggling to remember when he last played a full 90 mins

    I did hear from a reliable source that Baker had the same injury issues at Villa and they felt that his injuries were in his head and they wanted him to see a psychologist but he refused...................:cool2:.

    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?

    I'm not a football chairman or a manager so I dont worry about how much profit or loss lansdown makes each season


    Also fyi, we have a better squad than most teams in the league and one filled with quality, flair and goals.


    However, all this has been coached out of the players by our saviour lee johnson and thanks to him we dont see any of this week in week out because he can't pick a settled team and no one on the pitch has a clue what they're meant to be doing.

    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!

    I rest my case

    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.

  10. 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. 

  11. 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?

    There was only one side who were armed, and one child who had his head cracked open.

    I'll never understand how a football fan could reflexively take the side of South Yorkshire Police given their history.

    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 meathead in W5 (UL) who at the end of yesterday’s game when we were all well p*****d off should have kept his fat mouth shut and have avoided the torrent of abuse towards the pitch whilst very young kids were exiting from the family stand. His justification that he pays as much as anyone else and can do what he wants was selfish to say the least.

    I hope his BMW broke down on the way home...

  13. 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. 

  14. 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.

  15. Loads of decent bars and pubs along North St and on along past Ashton Park. 

    My personal choice would be here:-


    its a real ale brewery tap which suits me. 

    The choice of beers and ciders in the ground is also very good these days and you can can stroll around 3 sides of the ground if you want. 


    Saturday night in town? Spoilt for choice of venues, mostly focused around Corn St and King St and anywhere in between plus bars like the Stable Bar on the harbour side itself which gets very lively  

    All depends where you’ll be staying to make it easier to crawl back!

    Ok my little china girl. When did we change manager then? I must have missed that. 

    My comments were about the changes season to season in whatever league we are playing in -  not specifically to just us. 

    Everything all around us in the league evolves and changes so nothing is a ‘given’, if it was my betting slips would be in profit...

    Ok I will play ..Yes thanks to MA's hard work in the transfer market..

    No - everything is different. 


    Different teams

    Different players in those teams

    Different managers

    Different refs

    Different decisions

    Different weather

    Different luck. 


    and thats exactly why it’s such a frustrating and exciting sport to watch let alone to predict. 

    Let’s try to be different ourselves - get behind the team & stop criticising each and every comment some forum members make, if you don’t like them just hit the ignore button - try to contribute in a more constructive way?

    On the day Jon Lansdown breaks earth on our new training ground at Failand it can't  be long until Wally does the same at St Phillips.......eh Saggys.

    What they all fail to understand about the fruit market site is it’s a real business and if they sell up to the Fewers they’ll need a new site - ready to move into on day one, from when they move out of St Phillips. So before they even agree to move they’ve got to find a site themselves, design it, get planning permission and then build it - and only then can the Fewers start to even think about cutting turf for a new home.  

    Timescale - about 5 years end to end?
