  1. Not “ The Colonel” this is TP of The Wanted.
  2. Knew he featured somehere!
  3. On the beach in Bermuda sipping Pina Coladas?
  4. @Tom F Can I replace with Tom Parker please?
  5. The cynic in me wonders whether Pride Park being included within the transaction to purchase the football club will avoid the need for the value of the stadium being detailed, thereby avoiding any embarrassment if the value is substantially different from that used to avoid ffp sanctions.
  6. Absolutely. That run of scoring from the 8th was mind - blowingly spectacular. Perhaps now might be a good time to ask Bryson to remind everyone what the par is at Augusta National. Also ask Rory just why he felt he needed to chase distance, a la De Chambeau, as Justin seems to manage scoring quite well without piling on the pounds and pummelling the ball off the tee, just to gain a few extra yards.
  7. As soon as I heard about the club being sold I wondered how Pride Park would feature. As Derby County FC sold the ground to a third party company, then I cannot see how the ground can be included within the sale of DCFC to Alonso - it’s not DCFC’s to sell. Especially given the contentious nature of the sale of the ground, i.e. to circumvent ffp rules, then I think one of 2 things should happen. Either Derby County purchase Pride Park back from whichever of Mel Morris’s companies that now owns it, with that expenditure contributing to Derby’s cumulative losses and counting towards f
  8. Heard part of an interview with the new owner on the radio earlier. He used the phrase “ sleeping giant” ( although I don't know if he was referring to Rooney or DCFC) but that’s them b******d then!
  9. Smiley face at the end was meant to indicate that it was tongue in cheek comment - I doubt that anyone could match RR’s “relationship” with GJ! In fairness, I get that you feel the club is in a mess ( Pearson not yet being appointed full time being symptomatic of that) as I alluded to in the OP, with many issues in need of resolution just now. For what it’s worth, and as touched on by another poster in this thread, I think one of the problems ( among many!) that Pearson has had to contend with is that there are probably players with serious commitment/attitude issues but he cannot bi
  10. Atticus/ Nigel Pearson could be the new Robbered/Gary Johnson pairing. For “experienced” read “conference” and Nigel’s invitation to meet him in his office will be in the post...............
  11. We’ve had 5 years of appointments from within the Bristol City family with appointees unlikely to want to rock the boat by speaking out about issues at the club. For Sl to have become personally involved in Pearson’s appointment is a clear indication as to how worried he was about the real threat of relegation, and while the relegation threat might be slight, compared to when N was appointed, recent results and in particular performances must be of major concern to the owner. Accordingly might it just be the case that S might welcome an outsider telling him how it really is within t
  12. A lot of unknowns at the moment, the most important ( as fas as I can see) is exactly what SL sees his future at and with the club. There has to be a question mark over Jon’s future with the club, given his apparent emigration out to Bermuda to make a new home. While it is perhaps acceptable for the owner to reside in the channel islands, it is a little more impractical for the club chairman, who I presume would be expected to have a more hands on role than the owner, to be domiciled five and a half thousand miles away. If Jon no longer sees his future with us, then will SL be reviewing h
  13. Remember reading a commentator saying of Ronald Regan, that when he came to a fork in the road he took it!
  14. The Pearson situation is waiting to be resolved, we have a large number of players out of contract and very likely to leave, especially on the back of some of the worst performances for a very long time. Add in the chairman being lost in the Bermuda Triangle, the CEO possibly going to be lost in the Suffolk Triangle and the owner looking to bring in new investment. Does anyone else feel that we are on the cusp of some pretty huge changes at the club- for better or worse?
  15. Either that or he’s gone back to using photoshop on his ZX Spectrum!
  16. Have to say that your latest graphics software isn't as good as the previous one Dave.
