  1. Make social media companies jointly and severally liable for anything posted (published) through their medium, aimed at any citizen or resident of the UK. They would then be jumping over backward to verify all user accounts to help protect themselves, as it would be in their financial interests to see that miscreants were prosecuted for any wrongdoings. If you feel strongly about an issue that social media companies refuse to address, then you can always boycott them. You won't catch me on twitter, snapchat, instagram, or facebook or anything 'social media like' except youtube (or a couple of internet forums if we're counting them).
  2. Yep. Hopefully we can all draw a line under that and COD can now crack on.

    I'm the last person to ask about that sort of thing - but the Barnsley game was similar to how we played against Boro, but against a massively inferior opposition. I don't think there was much in the way of patterns of play/tactics and we just seemed to rely on having several players that were a couple or three of notches ahead of the very young Barnsley opposition. It wasn't really a contest. Walsh was in a central midfield two with Bakinson (or so I thought). He seemed to give the ball away a few times under no real pressure. I could see why he's not considered a Championship starter by LJ. It's been a week and my memory is a bit flaky, so take what I say with a large pinch of salt!Insert other media

    You're spot on. I watched him last week v Barnsley U23s. A long way from starting in a decent Championship side, but the potential is there. If he can get 25+ starts at Coventry it's going to push him on much better than sitting in the U23s. A win all round I'd say.
  5. Didn't we have Leko on loan from WBA the first half of that season? And did we still have that young Swede (I really have forgotten his name) on the books. We weren't thinking straight in them days.
  6. Deserved start for Niclus Eliasson. Getting excited. Catch you all on the other side.
  7. They will know what they capacity they need, what they can afford, and what any site can accommodate. It's always a case of compromise. Better to bite off what you know can chew though.
  8. Everyone knew about Pele, Eusébio, Best, Cryuff, Beckenbauer, Ronaldo and Messi.
  9. Come the end of December we'll just be arguing about the one or two backup players we need to maintain our EFL dominance
  10. You're right about Mitrovic. Worked and moved very well for their goal. The bit I liked best was when he brought the ball down with his shoulder to get a shot in. Joe Bryan got beat by his man a few times, but his passing and forward movement were pretty good. All I remember about Flint was his dive - why wasn't he booked like Arter? And if that was Tomlin's best, I don't think we have that much to worry about from him when we play them. He'll have probably thrown a tantrum or two by then anyway.
  11. So sad. Was only thinking of him earlier this week whiIst was musing on the state of local sports reporting. Hopefully there will be a piece on the official site soon and an acknowledgement of his services to Bristol City at tomorrows game.
  12. Tony Thorpe used to refer to himself in the third person. "Tony Thorpe takes the biscuit", as he would no doubt tell you.
  13. I thought I'd bump this thread - an especially poignant read given the current circumstances of Bolton and Bury - link per original post: https://thesefootballtimes.co/2017/09/20/the-story-of-bristol-citys-three-relegations-in-747-days/
  14. I remember going on a stadium tour sometime in the 90s. I think Deryn Coller might have hosted it, but it's so long ago and all I really remember is seeing the boardroom table and the replica world cup! The training ground might be more of an interesting destination for youngsters nowadays. Anyway, good luck with this Dave.
