    Moving to Bristol and need advice

    Would be a bit too much for me personally. I know quite a few friends and acquaintances from Cornwall who have tried living in London and they've really not taken to it whatsoever. l I enjoy visiting London but find it overwhelming by the end of my visit, and find that the commuting is a whole new level of depressing. Bristol seems a bit more cycle-friendly, nearer the countryside and more conducive to my values. An annoying bit of being Cornish is that you need a bit of countryside nearby, whether you like it or not!

    Moving to Bristol and need advice

    I have lived in Exeter for the last three years as I go to uni here. Love the place but would probably like to move somewhere else for a bit for a change. Still looking at roles around Devon though despite that completely betraying my roots. The plan is to just go somewhere in the South (excluding East Anglia and the London commuter belt), wherever a suitable job is really

    Out of interest, have you ever lived in Cornwall?

    Moving to Bristol and need advice

    It's what pretty much every 22 year old Cornish graduate does. There's just no opportunities there whatsoever and I've had my share of living in small towns, great to grow up in but I want to live in the city at least for a bit; especially if I snag a good grad scheme

    Matty Taylor

    He made me look a right mug in the match thread and I hope he continues to do so.

    Moving to Bristol and need advice

    I've been looking at properties in Nailsea actually and it ticks quite a few of the boxes. Can't drive yet but will be able to do so in a month, and I like the fact there's a cycle route into Bristol too. Only concern is that part of me wants to live in the city while I'm still young, but on the other hand I could probably get myself a season ticket purely on the rent I would save. Tough decisions!
  7. Once I graduate, the missus and I are intending to move to Bristol and start our lives in the real world. We would be looking for a 1 bed flat to rent, preferably not in an absolute ****hole and also preferably in the south of the city for reasons I hope are evident. We would probably look at £900pcm as an absolute maximum, but would prefer a little bit less if possible. We would like an area that is reasonably quiet and accessible by bicycle without having to venture on main roads on the entire way to the city centre. Which areas do you all recommend? Also, are there any commuter towns that you would recommend? I would be really grateful for absolutely any information about living in the city in general, including places to live, utility providers to choose and some of the best local pubs and cycle routes, but definitely not limited to just that either. Obviously I'm going to be combing other areas of the internet to find information so if there are things that can only be learnt from living in the city for a while, I'd love to hear those too. Thanks!

    Undoubtedly a mistake by Kelly, but it is our toothless attack that has caused this situation. Simply would not have happened otherwise

    This is excruciating enough to listen to so I'd hate to think what it is like to watch

    I am still not sure what Weimann is meant to bring other than running. Shame as he started so well but these complaints about his game were very evident from fans of his previous clubs. For £2m, not good enough.

    He scored 5 in his first 29, which was not considered good enough given his fee. Plus, it was particularly poor for a striker that functioned best as a pure off-the-shoulder poacher. Numerous articles wrote about how he initially struggled to cope with his newfound wealth, profile and expectation set upon him. There was even a point where he wanted to quit football altogether following his first season at Leicester. It is easy to look at it from hindsight, but really he did not have the smoothest transition initially, which is why we need to be patient with Mo. I have left you some articles to prove everything that I have said despite the fact that the news section of the Independent is now like a left-wing version of the Daily Mail. https://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/premier-league/jamie-vardy-used-to-turn-up-drunk-claims-leicester-vice-chairman-a7014666.html https://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/premier-league/jamie-vardy-nearly-quit-leicester-city-become-ibiza-party-rep-craig-shakespeare-a7665606.html https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11712/10824212/craig-shakespeare-says-leicesters-jamie-vardy-once-had-to-be-talked-out-of-quitting-game

    Rumours gone quiet

    Heard something going on at Failand recently... Apparently the first team have been doing a 'mini-competition' with each other during training. 1v1 games, small pitch, around fifteen minutes per game. Pretty standard. They've only just finished the first round and apparently it's been an absolute goal fest; the only goalless draw so far has been between Matty Taylor and a training mannequin

    It is also important to note that Vardy didn't exactly take to the Championship like a duck to water when he first arrived at Leicester. That being said, I still feel like Mo should be given more of a chance in the first team; even if it's just to come on and tire out some defenders while gaining an understanding of what is required of him. Taylor isn't getting any younger nor is he getting any more prolific, so I think we should be looking to Eisa in these situations instead.

    Thank you very much! Glad we could discuss it properly and resolve it. If only more of the internet were like it eh?
