  1. Today's bets......

    You're gonna have to guide me in on how to place that bet please. Is it one goal per team? Or one goal per game?
  2. Bookended by Hav & Olé. Hahahahaha.
  3. You're limited to £37-50? i tried to put a ton on it today but it'd only let me do £25. You must be a fave of theirs.
  4. Next 5 League Games

    If you offered me 9 I'd snap your hand off. But do you know what, we could just be capable of better. Were starting to see that on our day we could beat anyone.
  5. I'll admit that I didn't see the second half as quite as one sided as you did, but I'll admit that we're finally starting to see the answer to the age old question... "What does Johnson have to do..."
  6. Yeh. The skybet one. How often do you think it comes in?
  7. Decent point. Not amazing but not terrible. I'm taking it as a plus against Johnson's name.
  8. Thanks for this mate. I put £25 on it because of you!
  9. Join Facebook. Join Bristol city til I doe Facebook page and watch.
  10. The signs are there. Reminds me of the Reading game. Leko having a poor game, but we're well in it. Set pieces are a complete disaster and Norwich look good on the break. Hopefully step it up a gear second half.
  11. I though Palace to win and BTTS looked fairly decent at 40/1. Lets face it, Palace aren't going to keep a clean sheet, so it's essentially 40/1 on a Palace win!
  12. Have we under estimated LJ ?

    I don't disagree with any of that. However, my comments are set against a backdrop of people who use LJ's net spend as defence against the inordinate amount he's spent. He has spent masses. Now, the fact that the transfer market has got silly, or the squad needed that spending on it is neither here nor there, the fact is that LJ has spent an awful lot and the money coming in from Kodjia and Bolasie is largely irrelevant in this debate. Now, as I said before, this isn't anti LJ. It really isn't. Merely a balanced view of his spending.
  13. So, I've gone with an impossible Acca... all 11 Championship games! Brentford Derby Boro Fulham draw Leeds City Preston QPR Reading Sunderland Cardiff draw Wolves Villa 462 6 folds at 5p each. £10 on the 11 game acca. 4,300/1 im going part time if it comes in!
  14. Have we under estimated LJ ?

    Hi Phil, You've mentioned net spend a couple of times in this thread and youre not the only one who does it. I have just a small problem with it. Kodjia & Bolasie weren't LJ's assets. So he can't really claim any slack (against the backdrop of spending a small fortune) for selling them. I suppose the only comparison I can make is taking over a club that are 9 points clear and finishing 4th. And then claiming that the new manager did well to finish 4th. I'm very conscious that the above paragraphs may read as anti LJ. And I've never been shy in saying that I didn't think he was the right man for the job... however, they're not supposed to come across anti LJ, it just sticks in my throat a little when people use signings other than his own to offset his massive spend. In answer to the original question... have we underestimated LJ? Maybe. Nothing will ever change my mind that he should've been sacked but SL didn't and as much as I disagreed (and still do), that decision is proving a good one. Long may LJ continue to prove me wrong. I always just craved a little more consistency. And in fairness, this current purple patch is giving us well beyond that. Many have said that this season feels different. We're not scraping wins, we're actually playing well. That Derby game was the pinnacle of several years. God I hope this continues.
  15. BBC - Equality Overload?

    Funnily enough I thought the same thing yesterday evening. I just wanted to check the FGR vs Swindon score and had to click a load of buttons to get past the WPL score. Part of me wonders whether they're trying to over compensate for the much higher wages their paying Gary Linekar & Chris Evans versus their female stars.
