  1. Weller wouldn’t sell it out. The club/stadium have to look at this dispassionately - not who is good but who is popular (not always the same thing and especially not in music!) To give a steer, Wellers playing Westonbirt this coming Friday. Going to that one - but there are still tickets available. The only way he’d come close to selling out or even getting close to at AG is if he brought Foxton and Buckler with him.
  2. They’d never sell it out. I don’t mind Bastille, but when they play places like Plymouth Pavillions, it’s pretty easy to get tickets. Unless their new album rips them to a new level, or they piggyback on a stage for a bigger band on a different day, you have close to no hope. Bands/Artists who could sell it out who are likely to tour stadiums in 2020 (some may be too big): - Springsteen - Madonna - Kasabian - Kings of Leon - Foo Fighters - Killers - Metallica - Ariana Grande - Taylor Swift Take your pick...
  3. Springsteen has announced recently that he’ll tour in 2020. Can’t wait for the Portway to be jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive...
  4. I agree that the part in bold is the problem, but I come back to wherever the thread was (and our resident troll has proved this), if people want to interject then they will. Pinning a WWC thread or a secondary forum won’t change that. It’s the people who have the issue, not the content. Parallell here - you’re at AG, in the fanzone. They put a falafel stand there. It’s not burgers, fish and chips, pizza or any other normal accepted pre match food. But it’s pre match food. Do you stand in front of the falafel stand arguing that even though it’s food, and it’s not offensive, you don’t care about it or think it’s any good - or do you say “meh, not for me” and get a burger leaving people to enjoy their falafel. For people who don’t care about it - get the proverbial burger... (again, I do really get where you’re coming from and understand the problem you’re trying to solve. But I think moving something because people can’t help but comment even though they so say don’t care when it belongs in this forum is a real slippery slope)
  5. The bottom line for me is that this is a football forum. Threads on the women’s game belong here as much as threads on the CL final, threads on Bristol Manor Farm and threads on Bath City - all of which we’ve had in the past and have nothing to do with the men’s team at BCFC. Moving it to another forum solves nothing - Robbored hates speculation but trolls the transfer forum relentlessly. If idiots want to derail threads they will irrespective. For me, it’s on all of us. Same as if you have no interest in a thread on Marlon Pack moving house, what Tommy Black is doing these days and a random incident in the African CL. Don’t comment. It’s a special kind of person to get bothered about other people discussing something they have no interest in when they’re not forced to be in the conversation. But it’s football chat so should be here! (NB fully agree with points re equal pay and equal representation being nonsense where income generation is what it is and history nowhere near as established. This for me - and I have always stated the women’s game is a good thing - is about forum etiquette- no more, no less)
  6. Pen given to Portugal. Pulled back for VAR check at other end and pen given to Switzerland. Mental scenes
  7. Don’t worry...they’re looking in the normal place for a replacement...
  8. Bad news mate - the gig may be off She was found unconscious in a Madrid apartment last night owned by a French footballer. Police believe its murder on Zidanes floor
  9. I remember that. I was at King Eddies at the time and Monday night was youth night at Spirals. Loads of people hanging round outside the school gates handing out flyers for free entry to see the ‘that’ - either 90 or 91 Still didn’t go. Every chance Ronnie Butler would have taken offence to my shoes on the door
  10. I’m going “bold”. For several reasons: - I genuinely believe we have a manager (or head coach) who is growing and improving. I’d back LJ to get a lower mid table side to mid table, mid table to top 8 and so on. Common consensus is at worst, with no additions, we have a lower mid table squad so mid table is minimum - The division is genuinely weaker than it has been for some time. None of the three coming down look in great shape, those down from the prior year (Stoke/Swansea) are in flux and this years PO contenders, with the possible exception of WBA, feel in trouble. I don’t think anyone really expects Luton, Barnsley or Charlton to make a serious run so unless someone unexpectedly comes out of mid table, we may not have a better opportunity - I know it’s pre deals but I do think we’ll spend - and big. LJ is independent wealthy so has no need to commit for 4 years unless he’s sure he can get job satisfaction - I.e, achieve. To do that he needs backing, and I’d be shocked if it’s not there. I’m adamant Jay is back. I’m hopeful Tomas is back and then it’s plus two/three. People are keen (including our own fans) to talk us down, but as a top 8 promotion challenging championship side we are TK/JDS level currently- and with the relationship, I reckon they’ll come. So, yeah, top two or playoffs. Because I’m pretty sure what’s coming in the next six weeks
  11. Using the player analogy, and the current example of COD. If you read the O’Dowda thread, a common theme is that he’s not excelled here (good in patches) and needs to develop/ isn’t ready to move to a higher placed side. If he was, then I think people would be more understanding of why he felt (allegedly) it was time to move on. For example, if it was Josh in Callum’s shoes and angling for a move, there would be more understanding because he is a top six/lower prem based on what he’s shown to date. Now take Lee. He’s proven to be a manager that can get sides in the last two years around the playoffs and with a good cup run. He’s shown undoubted potential to be better than our current level - so on that basis, more Josh than Callum. With that in mind, isn’t it reasonable to see if the clubs ambition matches his own?
  12. Partially agree. All I’ve seen of Callum as a person in interviews, interactions etc suggests he’s a decent guy. And, actually, I think you can judge a man by his friends - and his best mates are the totally committed Brownhill and Taylor. I don’t think he’s the problem - and I said this on a prior thread having seen the Sky “Phenoms” series - I think, as has been brought up here, Daddy O’Dowda is the problem. Unfortunately COD is not ready to go into a prem side, or be an automatic starter for a top 8 championship side (including us). So, IMO, because Dad thinks he’s better than he is, he’s likely moving from a management team who have a record for developing and improving young players (Bobby, Joe, Josh, Lloyd, Nic amongst others) and making a sideways move where he may not get the same long term benefit. In the words of Elton John “It’s a sad sad situation”. And COD will only realise his potential (which is there), by listening to himself.
  13. Both unfortunately mate. Between those and Match Attax I’m nigh on bankrupt!
  14. Browsing the Guardian this evening, I seem to have missed it was the annual Subbuteo convention...! https://www.theguardian.com/games/2019/may/19/subbuteo-table-football-game-collectors-fair-renishaw-derbyshire?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other My 7 year old is into this already and keeps pestering me for a Bristol City set. Was it @spudski who paints these as a hobby?
