  1. Sure they would and that would also be out of order
  2. Can’t believe Bruce Craig would agree such a thing; he always seems like a quiet unassuming man. Not argumentative and demanding he gets his own way all the time.
  3. Ta for the info. May be the case that people try and push the rules. I mentioned Bath although did hear that when the cap first started 10+ years ago there were a few clubs pushing it but then there was a general amnesty and ‘start again’. I just think that even if more are doing it now Saracens clearly are the biggest culprits simply based on the quality and depth of squad. Nobody else gets near them and they have rarely lost a player they wanted to keep to a rival. Could be close - 2 decent sides
  4. Ta! My old man was a Bris fan so happy for them to finish 2nd after Glaws!
  5. To paraphrase Fred Trueman, dunno but he’ll be bloody tired if there is.
  6. Accepted by who, out of interest? Any evidence?And which teams? I know the Tarquins at the wreck were the other team caught a few years ago but apart from that I’m not so sure. Just look at Saracen’s squad and it says a lot really....I speak as a Gloucester fan, for the record.
  7. Wasn't there but just watched Sky highlights, and I made it 5-4 to us (inc our goal) on good chances!
  8. That just made me laugh and is an example of what a poor article it is.
  9. It’s a very mediocre article really, not just the City bit. As for underachieving, 1 more win and we’d have been top 6 now. Above us are 3 teams with parachute payments WBA, Fulham and Swansea, 1 under FFP investigation I think - SWeds , the biggest team in the division Leeds, another who have spent tonnes in recent years - Forest. You could argue Brentford and Millwall are hugely overachieving but to say the complete opposite about us? Hmm.
  10. Fair. My view is that when we were top 5 with few defeats we weren’t as good as that suggested, but equally we’re not as bad as recent form suggests (should add that I’m not referring to how good we are to watch, just ‘effectiveness’). Most teams at this level have good and bad periods and yes, LJ’s history here suggests we’re more prone to that then most, but we’re not unique. We are quite capable of returning to form, and perhaps the break after Saturday will help. However, I do think we need an upgrade up front if we’re to really push on and if you know who arrives he may be the answer. A player with movement and who is more clinical than FD and AW (not knocking them, decent at this level without being great), I suspect will bring more out of a number of individuals (KP, AN etc).
  11. But when Afobe was fit I thought LJ said that it suited KP. So if he’d not got injured KP may have got that run of games?
  12. I certainly don’t have a prem team and I don’t buy half and half scarves!
