  1. SL says to NP "you've one hell of a task on your hands. Have you got what it takes and are you prepared to do what is required to turn the club around?" Hopefully NP replies, " Yes I have and I am, but have and are you?"
  2. ..... And that he has should be the cause of deep enbassement to older, more experienced players who haven't. Except that it won't be, and that's why we are in the mess that we are!
  3. The players want an easy ride? The National Express from Ashton Gate to anywhere else will be a piece of cake then!
  4. I find that we score just after Ive got up to put the kettle on, but each to their own..
  5. You know what you’ve just gone and done, don’t you?!
  6. How’s this for “any other owner”, who just happens to be the owner of one of the clubs behind the ESL project. The Glazers bought a debt free club 10 years or so ago.

During these calls I am also sure the players will be urging their agents to do their bit by taking much red
  9. It’s because they cancelled Callan.
  10. No, it’s just after twenty past eight this evening!
  11. Ideally, and equitably, the clubs should be chucked out of the premier league, but can never see that happening.
  12. You can bet that the owners/chief execs of the prodigal clubs will be apologetic and pleading that they realised that the best way to achieve the reforms that are “for the good of the wider game” was from within the established premier and EFL structure. They will also say something along the lines that they want to be fully involved in full and frank discussion wit their fellow premier league cubs and other “stakeholders” as to how those reforms can best be achieved, but will conveniently avoid saying anything about how they also want to see how they can squeeze more money out of the sy
  13. Next it will be Rudolph pulling out!
  14. Just waiting for teams to announce their roster of players for the first ESL season.
