  1. The strange thing is it looks just as easy for the guy to head the ball into the net, he seems to choose to use his hand. Maybe he has been influenced by the dementia reports?
  2. In all seriousness, they were 7th in the table 1 point off the play off positions and playing a team they had every right to believe were lambs to the slaughter. Taking all that into account, just over 6.5k is a shocking performance for a team playing in a city as large as Bristol, especially as that number probably includes season ticket holders who didn’t attend. I have no doubt that there are ‘loyal and true’ diehard gasheads, but these dwindling crowds seem to show that, their numbers are becoming fewer and fewer. The hope for a new ground is desperate because in their hearts they know this themselves, but my feeling is that the best it would offer them is a “dead cat bounce”, unless it was instantly followed by a modicum of success. Wael of Fortune, must be getting so much grief from his family, as they watch their wealth dwindle away down the plug hole.
  3. Yes you're right, here's the actual transcript. Harry Redknapps dog, the then director of football at Derby, and Neil Warnock's wife Sharon, Cardiff City manager, “needed looking after” while brokering deals, according to the agents.
  4. Easy to lose track as there are so many possibilities.
  5. Good suggestion. It might be too early to add George DOwling, he might go down the Tyrone Mings route yet. I really thought that Ashley Kington was going to be a good player, also around that time Stephen Gillespie should have played at much higher level.
  6. I wasn't there Bob but I am still upset at the actions of a small minority at the game. You know as well as I do that it takes very little for people to go from "small minority" to "all" when talking about groups of people. You can't be surprised surely at the need for people to distance themselves from the actions of a few idiots as quickly as possible? You rightly ask about who is reporting the incidents and some say that there were reports made at the time, and we can only hope there will be people supplying evidence now it's being requested.
  7. 16 for me although I have a feeling I went to Filbert St as a lad, but I haven't included that one. I went to Both the old Brighton grounds, but I don't think the Withdean should really count as it was never really a permanent ground.
  8. Investment for the extension of the stadium complex?
  9. It may not be the oldest football rivalry, but the rivalry between the two cities is very long standing and is a very political one. In the late 1800's Manchester had cotton mills desperate for raw materials which were coming in through the port of Liverpool. The Liverpool merchants kept pushing up the prices of bringing in the cargo to the point that the mill owners clubbed together to build the Manchester Ship Canal to take the Liverpool port out of the equation. The canal was built mainly by Irish workers known as Navigators (navvies), part of the reason for the large Irish influence in Liverpool to this day, and there were many fights between workers throughout the dispute and the period of canal being built. There are a few football rivalries that transcend the game itself, and this is one of them.
  10. It's amazing, the pitches the kits, the number of tackles where you wince and hardly seem to get a free kick given let alone a card. I watched the Manchester City thing over the last couple of days on your recommendation, by the way. It was ok, I thought it could have been even more indepth but there were some interesting things there. I think it highlighted why Johnson talks about DNA so much, Pep clearly felt that his best motivation tactic was to appeal to the players own belief/will to be the best. "I know you want this", I know you can be the best" etc. If you can get those kind of characters into a team it's easier. I would have liked to have heard something about him explaining to players why they were playing or not, and how he sold them his selection decisions. I liked the bit where he was explaining to Arteta how upset Sterling was with himself for missing an easy chance and how he was going to use it as motivation. I would like to have seen the conversation with Sterling first though. I have one question though....... how the hell do the players which of those magnetic markers on the board are them? I was expecting something with their faces on at least!!
  11. Also 2 of our games have been televised which is supposed to effect attendances.
  12. From the Sky bet pages. A difference of 14,851
  13. It's amazing how quickly we have all got used to it too. Sometimes when I watch the old videos that are posted on here, the ball gets passed back and my immediate thought is "ooh that looks tight" and then the keeper picks it up and I suddenly remember that that was perfectly acceptable. Imagine the time wasting (sorry Game Management) that would take place if that was till the case.
  14. Yes it appears to be completely new, I expected it to just update the existing app, but I ended up with two different apps initially. Seems smooth on my phone so far though.
