  1. VAR - no thanks. Takes away the spontaneity of a goal celebration for starters.
  2. You may be disappointed! Presume the red card will be rescinded on appeal.
  3. Fair play; not easy playing 3/4 of the match with 10 men. Looked all over at 1-0 down with the sending off and Bannan about to take the pen.
  4. Kalas is far more comfortable right centre back than left.
  5. Not been all bad. We are actually stringing a few passes together for the first time in ages.
  6. Wonder if the issue is more at the Guernsey end, i.e. that SL would have to go into isolation on return to Guernsey (assuming the rules below apply to Guernsey residents as well). Sounds like there may be a relaxation of the Guernsey rules on 30 April. “On and after 22 March 2021, you no longer need to apply for an essential travel permit prior to arrival in the Bailiwick. Anyone wishing to travel between 22 March 2021 and 30 April 2021 will currently be subject to a mandatory 14 days of self-isolation on arrival in the Bailiwick. Non-essential travel on or after 30 April 2021 w
  7. It was just obstruction ref!
  8. Excellently done - Ashtongate at Ashton Gate! Need someone else in quickly given the number of contracts to negotiate.
  9. Ben B thought he could see the similarities between our home stands and the home stands at the Hawthorns anyway - concourses especially he mentioned.
  10. “for the two new stands at the East End and South..” (that’s not Ashton’s fault though!)
  11. Gregor will have been referring to this from his article yesterday. Basically Ashton helped us when he was at WBA by sharing Hawthorns development info: “One senior source told Bristol Live an important anecdote about the impact Ashton had in the boardroom during his earlier West Brom days that help show his value at corporate level and indicate why he is so highly regarded, when he was assistant to Baggies managing director John Wile many years ago. Wile and Ashton were described as exceptionally kind to the Bristol City directors on one visit, despite a late goal for the home side
  12. My only concern is the timing of this. We have a load of contract negotiations to sort out (be they current out of contract players or new recruits) and no one to do this as far as I can see. If Walsh is going to replace Ashton (see the other thread), I only hope that we can get him in earlier than 31 May. If Walsh isn't available, I have a concern that Pearson may not commit until he knows who is going to be Ashton’s replacement.
  13. Thought I’d have a look! I don’t have a clue as to how SL travels from Guernsey but there was this flight to Bristol at about 9.20am this morning so perhaps....
  14. Yes season tickets went on sale early for this season. I actually bought my season ticket on 24 Feb so probably explains why we sold as many as 12k despite COVID.
  15. I think you’re right. Which is why the stuff on here earlier in the season writing him off (at age 19!) was nonsense.
  16. The news reports this morning suggest that a negative test certificate would be an alternative to a vaccine certificate - so you show one or the other. The suggestion is that it will be a temporary measure (one year) so that large events can restart more quickly. Sounds like we’ll hear more at the Govt press conference tomorrow though.
  17. We’ll have to see how these upcoming trial events go I guess: Carabao Cup: Final between Tottenham & Man City to have 8,000 fans in stadium https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/56630189
  18. Who knows what is going on behind the scenes. For all we know, Pearson may have said that he wants to bring in his own assistant as a condition of taking the job and those discussions and negotiations are taking place. You’d like to think his appointment would be confirmed in the next couple of weeks though.
  19. HPC (Horrible Performance City)
  20. Really enjoyed that press conference. Really interesting and positive stuff.
