  1. Thoughts? We’re on a bad run and have failings / shortcomings as a team (as do every team). But 6 games ago we were 4th - which was a sign of success. IMO you can’t sack your manager after 5 losses that is knee jerk, fickle, foolish, deluded etc. If you wanted Johnson out 6 games ago when we were fourth then there’s no hope for you. LJ needs backing in Jan and for the rest of the season then we’ll see where we’re at.
  2. Recently, there was a local news report along the lines of City/Rovers developing a closer relationship regarding loans etc. Today, Semenyo is linked as favourite to join them on loan. Sending a loan player down the road is appealing for obvious reasons but considering Rovers are pushing for the play-offs isn’t it a terrible commercial idea to help them out? In terms of attracting new fans/tourists in Bristol, don’t you want your rivals as far away from you as possible? Rovers in the championship (humongous if still!) wouldn’t be great for BCFC - would it?
  3. 1) Presumably it’s accepted by all parties that Keogh was, along with the other two, in breach of contract (not that any of us know his contract). 2) Can Derby legally punish employees differently who are all in breach of contract in the same way? Yes, then bye bye Keogh. No, then he has a case to appeal. 3) Regardless of the morality of this decision, football is big business. The other two lads have a chance to repair the damage they’ve caused by performing well on the pitch, bringing success and being saleable assets. Keogh, on the other hand, essentially has a self-inflicted injury through his misconduct meaning he can’t actually do his job for the remainder of his contract and has zero market value. Therefore it’s understandable that derby would sack him and save £24k a week for the next 18 months. What a bonkers industry football is. Money talks. Interesting how this plays out over the coming weeks.
  4. There’s definitely a delay. All gone very quiet and GM reporting that work to start early next year. Ashton said in Jan about work starting this summer.
  5. DM said in video that they have broken their transfer record. Anyone know what it was previously? Good business all round. Mo wasn’t going to get a look in any time soon and sounds like we’ve recouped our £1m and maybe made a bit of profit. I wonder if he’ll become a championship striker in a few years and come back to haunt us though?
  6. It was said in jest. I too think JDS will play in prem, as does LJ I’m sure. It is true that some clubs/managers would be put off from a defender based on height.
  7. Agreed. Remember, with the exception of a striker (Bobby), we’ve had a stronger squad this year, improved and had far more money in the bank. That will still be the case if we’re lucky enough to sign JDS and TS permanently.
  8. Shame - but if he wants out, let him go. Can’t see us getting £6m but we’ll make a healthy profit on what we bought him for (club recruitment strategy in action) and move on.
  9. Excellent points made here. We may well miss out on JDS and TS, particularly the latter. LJ also made a good point before, however, that regardless of ability some clubs will be put off by Da Silva’s height considering he’s a full-back. This might help us.
  10. Some people are stupid and you, sir, are one of them. Go and support Rovers please.
  11. Been a great season. Fair play to the players and staff. Play-offs just a bit beyond us in the end. Important we end the season strongly now in the last 2 games to finish as high as possible as we go into the summer.
  12. That stance is arguably fair enough when out and about on a day to day basis but it doesn’t take a genius to realise that practically the whole stadium goes for a wee at half time including the disabled supporters in the ground. ”I was just going to be quick and didn’t think anyone would need to use it,” is illogical in a football stadium.
  13. Nothing worse than adults moaning about people being a ‘snitch’. Proper embarrassing. I get why people wouldn’t ‘tell on’ their mate or a family member for doing something wrong. But if you saw an old lady getting mugged or someone receiving homophobic or racial abuse then you’d do something about it. If you wouldn’t then you’re a massive bell-end. Nothing different in a football stadium. This isn’t about singing, standing or being a bit sweary.
  14. Went to a designated away pub 2 years ago (Fernhurst). It’s a short walk away from the ground down the main road (Bolton road) behind the away end. Can’t miss it.
