  1. Knowing how jammy they are I thought even the sags won't cock that up. I tuned in at 4.30pm and started to get mildly excited when I saw the scores and that grew steadily as time seem to stand still so by the time hit 4.50pm I was stood on the sofa shouting at the TV. Outside it was like a carnival, every car that went by was tooting horns. Drivers were slowing down and gleefully informing passers by of the good news. Happy days!
  2. Er . . . That's subject to a confidentiality agreement.
  3. I hope the lovely people over at Bath City or Forest Green Rovers have some nice strong padlocks on their gates because they could be soon getting an unwelcome visit in the night.
  4. Just guessing, but it looks like wally doesn't want anyone around asking awkward questions. With the many broken promises and lack of direction and information the future looks decidedly bleak which will be a great shame as no matter how bad a day I'm having, a quick catch up on the dustbin thread makes me feel a million dollars.
  5. Just as well they purchased that 80's night club canopy to go over the top then
  6. . . . and don't forget the sags fell out of the league in 1939 and that's after borrowing players off of us. Hitler saved them from applying for re election
  7. You hit the nail on the head. Without large investment and ultimately sustainable investment the majority of football league clubs would be in the same predicament. That is why our ground's had investment, that's why the training facility is being built, that's why there's plans for the arena and further developments to help to offset future investment in the Football/Rugby to make it more sustainable. In other words there's a massive difference between the two professional (in its broadist sense) football clubs of Bristol, and the gap is getting wider. In fact I would further go on to say that the more we progress both on and off the field only goes to further highlight those inadequacies.
  8. As usual, this type of post brings out "best" in people. I do not profess to know the guy, his family or his religious beliefs but with his talent he was quite happy to become a professional football player in England and take considerable payment in this country for it. It has also enabled him to play at international level for his country. His beliefs are his own and as such should be kept that way and not put into the public domain. Why bite the hand that feeds you?
  9. Cancel the season? Imagine for a moment yorkshire's most loved team missing out and having to start all over again . . . What a lovely thought.
  10. He is looking at his exit strategy and has been for some time. Now that he has extricated his investment out of the club all that will be left behind will be an empty shell of nothing which he is looking to offload to anyone although the better option would be a supporter type group of investors so that he can move on to the next club.
  11. The debt amounting is internal debt so doesn't affect the day-to-day running of the club, and my commitment to the club and its long-term aims remains as strong as ever. I think he's got that wrong. "Internal debt" IS the day to day running costs. I would say "external debt" (using his terminology) would be the UWE facility that the university agreed to proceed on, or new training ground he's building, or the various planning applications and studies he's carried out, or the re build of the memorial ground stand by stand he's currently undertaking. All of which are tied up in confidentiality agreements so unfortunately he can't talk about them. Their day to day running costs are completely unsustainable without continually propping up with new investment and he can't keep borrowing on the only asset they have which is the run down stadium. Pot and pi55 in comes to mind
  12. "Jizzless" although I doubt that very much. It's what stops it going completely flat and they all lap it up.
  13. Never mind "where's Wally" where's row M?
  14. its a no brainer for me. We would be top 3 or 4 with a fit Benik Afobe. He is the way we want to set up with strong runs and angles for the likes of KP45. He would be back to his best playing for us rather than not enjoying his time in the potteries. I really like Dhiedhiou and think he has been one of the players of the season but if we want to progress Afobe is the way forward and I think Fam will be off at the end of the season along with Eliasson in any case
  15. I've just worked it out! With statements of fact like that you're definitely a Leeds United fan!
