    Swindon has no soul. Except those of the arse variety.
  2. FAN meeting - TONIGHT (Merged)

    Not happy with answer about lights kept on for evening games. - The rake of the stand. Personally I think there should have been handrails incorporated into the original design as elderly and people with some mobility issues find the rake (and the resultant narrowness of the steps) challenging. Having the lights on does not help in any way or if it does it's very marginal. - Late comers to the game. They don't leave the ceiling lights on in a cinema to accommodate late arrivals. This would spoil the experience of other cinema goers so why are lights left on at the game so it spoils it for everyone else? The response from the club (which I don't buy) is that it's about adequate lighting. I guess it's too late/expensive to do this now, but if that is their. stance some discrete lighting of the steps themselves as they do in cinema would be a solution that does not detract from the experience of everyone else. I would like to know.... - How many recorded injuries have occurred by individuals as a result of the lights being off. Surely this was in response to actual evidence? If there are any injuries were they attributed to it being too dark or was it more to do with lack of handrails? Have there been less incidents since the light.have been kept on? If there have been no incidents, then leave the lights off and monitor how things go. - How many other clubs leave the lights during the game? Really pisses me off.

    Funny how it seems.

    Thanks @ZiderEyed Kind of enough that he's a City fan, really. Surely no need to sticker him.
  5. Trust...'DNA'...Everyone working in the same direction...

    Fair point. Johnson acknowledged this himself in his post season review. With a full season and another preseason under their belts, I think players understand better what is expected. I'm sure players have been given simpler instructions. They all understand their roles and the way we play I think players (and fans) appreciate better the need for rest and rotation when it comes. Getting rid of the odd rotten apple has helped too.
  6. Trust...'DNA'...Everyone working in the same direction...

    LJ aside I cannot think of anything happening off field that I don't whole heartedly support. - Radical overhaul of scouting and analysis. Getting players before others spot them. - Recruiting young hungry players with good attitude and character. Cherishing local lads in particular. - Developing a club identity and recruiting players at all levels to deliver it. - An identity that is attack minded high pressing game and encouraging players to be brave on the ball. - Getting the most promising premier league talent on loan without inhibiting our own. - Recruiting best youngsters for the U23s, both local and from afar. - Loaning youngsters out for crucial first team experience. (Even if they don't succeed with city we will only continue to attract top talent if we can prove we can secure them some kind of career in football). - Succession planning to replace players that may be sold if the price is right (and not being afraid to do so). I continue to support LJ, but to me what is much more important is that we know who we are as a club now. The time will come when we will need to replace LJ, for whatever reason, and it's the things being put in place behind the scenes that will mean we can continue to progress whoever comes in. You cannot understand the impact of having the kind of stability that SL provides in helping us think and plan long term. Personally I have never been more excited about the future of the club. COYR.

    I don't have any idea about the blue few these days. Is that really him? What's the story? Is he really a City fan?

    Gotta be the ultimate sell out taking Murdochs filthy money for your daughters name. Can imagine the local pantomime would have paid much for the other though. He needs a better agent.
  10. Life outside of being a footballer!

    Good read. Thanks for posting posting. All too easy to dismiss footballers as overpaid prima donas, but life can deal a poor hand to anyone. I couldn't comprehend the pain of losing a child. Glad him and his family are piecing things back together.
  11. Rory Holden

    Wish knew the answer. I do recall LJ talking about a player (not sure which one) being highly regarded within the game so I guess that'll be anyone that may worked with him in the past or scouted him. Family background, I guess would count. So going to see Tammy's family may not just have been about convincing them about Bristol City but also finding out more about their values and how Tammy was with his family. I'm sure I read an article someone posted on here about checking out a potential players' social media profile. Does he have picture of flash cars and nights on the lash or holiday snaps with his girlfriend and or family? As I say I don't know how they check this out, but I have been impressed with how genuine alot of our recent signing have been and how well they come across. As far a Engvall goes, I dont think anyone could foresee he would find it difficult to settle here. Most Scandinavians seem to settle well in the UK, though he's supposed to be from quite a small community. Any foreign player carries this risk but I would not in any way see being homesick as being a character flaw in itself.
  12. Two new signings - Bakinson and Holden

    'Do I did', true. My family are from Donegal so I used to know a fair few from Derry up on their holidays and 'mucker' was pretty standard. Was a while ago now though. Yes, he was talking slowly for a Derryman. Maybe he's slowed it down for the English audience. Great accent all the same. And as other has said comes across as a good lad. Hope he settles and makes a go of things here.
  13. Rory Holden

    Yes, and to be fair to LJ he said at the time he didn't fit the mould but was will to take the chance. Can't see that happening again.
  14. Rory Holden

    Tyreeq seems pretty excited to be here too. I'm impressed with how all of our recent signings come across, including Steele. Seems like the club are staying true to their Dna mantra, and interesting to hear LJ talk about players being first and foremost 'good people' as well having talent.
  15. Two new signings - Bakinson and Holden

    Wrong part of Ireland. More 'Aye. Dead on, mucker'. Lots of grumbling about some going to Cheltenham on loan, but getting U23s good loan moves to league clubs must help attract these promising young lads. Obvoliously, they have City's first team as an aim, but forging any kind of career in football would be an achievement so this kind of experience is invaluable to their development. Good to see LJ getting involved in persuading these signings to come to the club. Hopefully, theyll be a couple of gems amongst them.
