  1. Back in “this parish” on trial at Cheltenham https://www.bristolpost.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/former-arsenal-bristol-city-striker-3759863 Not put in transfer forum as more of an ex player thing (sorry Robbo) as opposed to a target
  2. I think the problem is that we’re now fishing in a different pond. So although we’ve got people looking over the fence asking what’s going on at Bristol City, all that really leads to us some more plates spinning while we wait our place at the table. Ultimately, we’re only interested in fantastic humans who are world class at the basics, and people with that DNA we aren’t always at the front of the queue for. So, I think we can understand the lack of movement but we’re continuing to fish hard behind the scenes.
  3. Herbie Kane. Youre Welcome.
  4. I’m not having that. We’re World Class at the basics.
  5. Didn’t Darren Fletcher have that? I wonder if there’s anything he used to manage it while playing football which could be used as a readacross? I think we’ve all been at the HMs this week - congrats! I think @mozo nailed one today as well. Although whoever on Strava did the 5k on the Maldives wins this week, undoubtedly...
  6. I suppose the point I should also make here is that good relationships can also bear fruit by things like using other teams training facilities, leveraging off their scouting network etc - ie the unseen stuff.
  7. Just thinking on this factor this morning. Something that MA and LJ have stressed in interviews is that we have strong relationships with the bigger clubs in the country. My wonder is (a) How true this is and (b) How much it actually matters If you take the current biggest/best team in the country, by all accounts the Ryan Kent saga harmed that and we’d probably be reticent to loan from them with the non playing penalties, as they may also be reticent to loan to us With EN, I understand that the decisions changed, but the way the club appear to have been on strings for the last six months would make me wary of dealing with them again Man U/Man C/Spurs - We’ve done no business in recent years. Even after LJs link up with Man C/Marwood in his earlier management years, and the good impression on the League cup ties, we haven’t secured (if we’ve asked) loan prospects So, the only Big club where we appear to have a good relationship is Chelsea. Even there, are we really currently at the front of the queue for their best and brightest? And if you take the signings, undoubtedly we got a good deal with JD but we paid market value for TK and the jury’s out on KP So, do we have these fabled “Good Relationships”?
  8. Cue anyone under 40 on here wondering just what the match thread has descended into...
  9. Well I don’t care - cause she’s a sl*g and he’s a creep
  10. Yeah, but Barry’s a mate of Gordon’s isn’t he?
  11. Partially agree, but what you’re describing there requires that much more time and physical effort. That in itself reduces the “impulse time” you have to act and in itself, may prevent the act. I’m not saying it’s a “cure all” - however if you start from the basis that credit card gamblers are more likely to be problem gamblers, and this stops - say - 20% of them, it’s got to be worthwhile? If 100 people need help it’s better to help 20 than none?
  12. In a 4-4-2 I’d go... Bentley Orr - Carey - Kalas - DaSilva Eliasson - Elliott - Brownhill - McIndoe Weimann - Adebola Surprised myself with 5 from one team, 6 from the other, but a bit of logic: - Carey has to be CH based on that season. Nobody we have currently is performing to that level - The balance between full backs/wide men is right. McIndoe put a real shift in defensively and would allow JD to overlap, on the other side you have Orrs solidity making up for the naturally more attacking, but still able to work back, Elliasson - Midfield. Ignore his subsequent drop off. Marvin Elliott was phenomenal that year. Better performances than any midfielder we currently have has managed consistently for a season. The other choice is Brownhill based on the ability Marv would give him to go box to box but if he’d been fit and firing, Korey would be close - Up front. Adebola played the big man role consistently better than Fam. And he might be able to play with Weimann (!). AW would be replaced by a fit Afobe, but again, basing on balance and consistency, probably AW currently. However, tells a story that the position where I’m forcing people in as opposed to making a choice from a strong group is up front both in 2007-8 and now...
  13. I joined a bowls forum once and it was just as bad. Some bloke kept saying he didn’t believe anything that happened until it was on the bowls website, moaned continually about not being able to hear when it was his turn to stick up from his seat and then, to put the tin lid on it, he took the other local bowls team on a day out. Our captain confronted him but he denied any knowledge. Glad it’s only bowls people that happens with and not football fans.
  14. Don’t mean to be pedantic, but strictly speaking you’ve given two alternate explanations
