  1. Surely clubs have some sort of insurance, I read the Michael Owen thread recently and saw that NUFC had received £10 mil when he messed his knee up. Not sure how true this is though. Wonder if City would be that savvy to have insurance on a player?
  2. That Gas striker looks like he’s banging them in for fun and has a release clause.... Go on Lee let’s have another laugh at them! Great shame about Afobe when it’s announced, he was the perfect fit for us and seemed to gel well with the squad.
  3. Understand your points however this is a forum to discuss anything City related! If we don’t discuss anything then what’s the OS says then how dead would this place be?
  4. Exiled Robin stated on Twitter it’s to do with an injury. Really hope it’s not Afobe.
  5. Wouldn’t give him the attention he clearly needs to function.
  6. I disagree, find his content a enjoyable read but in this case I do ask the question why post when you know you’re going to get some nibbles.
  7. Any ideas what this could be about? I’m totally stumped!!
  8. Can get some decent tents for £4million..... They are a thick bunch, how can a club in their situation turn down £4 million in the first place! IF a club even offered £500,000 + they would snap their hands off!!!
  9. BP site is awful. Here is the commentary of the pre match conference. 15:49 LJ on Stoke I think Stoke, their squad is up there with the best in the league. I knew it would be a tough game up there. It’s sorcery how they’ve only got one point in the league so far. 15:48 LJ on Joe Morrell The pathway is there for Joe. I like him, he’s a really good player. At one point it looked like he might not have had a career but we asked Cheltenham to take him because we knew once he got in the door he’d make the most of it. He would have been frustrated he didn’t get more games (last season). Jamie McCombe has taken charge at Lincoln and I’m in regular contact with him mainly cos he’s a mate but also I’m interested to know how Joe’s doing. Delighted with the Wales call-up, especially as a few years ago it looked like he was going out to America to be part of the college scene. 15:44 Selection dilemmas We’ve got a lot of decisions. Callum signed his new contract, that changes the mindset a bit. The Likes of Sammie Szmodics and Pereira have been excellent in training. The competition is strong. In training, people have been performing very, very well. The lads that are playing know they can’t rest on their laurels. 15:42 LJ on Kalas No, he’s going to be a bit longer. We don’t want to rush that one. He’s going to get re-scanned to see if the tear has decreased, as it should have done. 15:41 LJ on injuries Bailey Wright is back in training. Adam (Nagy), we will test Friday. He’s still a bit thick around the ankle but he is on the mend. 15:37 More on Cooper First signs are good, he’s got the team playing well - the Swansea way if you like. There are a few now (young English coaches). It’s a great league, he’s going to learn so much from playing against the foreign managers and the different problems and influences that they bring. It’s the best league in the world to competitively have to learn the 1% to get wins. 15:36 LJ on Steve Cooper They’ve been excellent. I’ve known Coops for quite a while, we were on a leadership course together. He’s making us all look like fools - one month in the job and he’s manager of the month! 15:35 Lee's up The head coach is in the chair 15:29 That's all from Williams LJ will be up imminently 15:28 Ashley Williams on Veganism I started it two years ago. It came about after I watched a documentary ‘what the health?’ I just felt that I had more energy and didn’t need a nap in the afternoon like footballers often do. In terms of athletes it works for us. I feel better for it now than when I did at Everton. I can’t say it’s for everyone but it works for me. 15:23 Working up to full fitness When I first signed, we earmarked Stoke as a game to be available to be play so we had two weeks to work on my fitness. Then Kalas got injured so that made an opening for a centre-half. So in that two weeks I made a point of getting as much fitness in my legs and my lungs. 15:21 LJ's comparison with Brendan Rodgers I can see where you’re coming from with that but I don’t like to compare people. The way he goes about his working day, with his attention to detail, the way he encourages and provides such a nice environment to work. It does bear similarities to Brendan Rodgers. 15:20 Working with Lee Johnson Having spoken to the gaffer that week, it was more he needed to see me a bit. I was saying I was in shape but he wanted to see me. He’s been really respectful of me, my age, and he left it open that both sides would suss it out and then we’d come to a decision. I came up to the Derby game - a brilliant win - and then we spoke all week. 15:19 Why choose Bristol City There’s a few lads in the dressing rom: Walshy from Everton, Benik from last season, Marley Watkins from Wales, Tommy Rowe from my Stockport days. For me, it was what the gaffer’s built here, the culture and the way they go about it. It’s a young team and they’ve got big ambitions and when I spoke to the manager on the phone I knew that’s where I want to be. It’s a young team not that many older players and maybe my presence would be welcome in the dressing room. 15:14 Whether he got an offer from Swansea this summer No, not really. Not that I knew about 15:14 Williams on early fixtures ... You couldn’t make it up, it’s strange and interesting. Especially with my early game against Stoke, all those familiar faces. But why not, try and get up and running as soon as possible 15:13 Early jokes Fielding a question from BBC Wales, Williams jokes, “I thought I had got away from you lot” 15:12 Ashley Williams on life at City I’ve enjoyed my first few weeks, and obviously it’s about trying to get as much fitness as I can
  10. Can see the faces of the Gasheads now when we offer Matty Taylor for Clarke-Harris on transfer deadline day!
  11. I don't think getting a ticket is that hard, the SA post code covers the whole of Swansea, Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion. I grew up in Pembrokeshire and before I had a season ticket or any booking history I had no issues getting a ticket for games against Cardiff/Swansea. I just thought with last season's antics, top end clash, local(ish) game and general sale tickets that the Jacks would come up with a big following!
  12. Easy drive up the M4, tickets on general sale and a sold out away end.
