  1. I'm sure that's what they would intend to do (as they did last time in the 70's) but when you're faced with going down or splashing the cash to try and stay there it's difficult to resist, especially now as sites like this would pressurise the club to spend their way out of trouble which would be a big gamble.
  2. I'd like to see how we coped with Prem football but if we came back down there's a risk we could end up like Sunderland, Huddersfield/Stoke this season and be fighting a relegation battle, that's what happened last time we went up and we ended up in Div 4, there's no guarantee we'd be ok in the Championship following a relegation
  3. I remember a sequence of them hitting the woodwork 2 or 3 times in a row but the ball somehow stayed out, it was one of those nights when luck was on our side. WBA had a Scottish winger Willie Johnstone in those days who always got loads of stick from our fans and usually had a shocker when they played us. It was good in those days (as others have remarked) that you could pull into the services or a pub on the way home and the team coach was there! Players were also often present in the old supporters club bar in the Williams stand after a game.
  4. I can remember that one being played so must have carried on to the 70's. Going back to the Russ Conway version I don't know if he performed it specifically for BCFC as he was local, it wasn't released as a single as far as I'm aware. The "Robins" nickname was used a lot more in those days, I can remember fans chanting "Come on you Robins" (sounds quite quaint now)
  5. I think the "strange piano music" was "When the Red Red Robin" by Russ Conway (who was a Bristolian). Conway was regularly in the top 20 in the late 50's and early 60's and a regular guest on TV shows at the time. That record was played from when I started watching them in 1970 through all the 1st Division years and onto the 80's. "Drink up thee cider", the original Adge Cutler version was also played once the team were on the pitch during that period. Here's the Russ Conway song:
  6. We must be better than that as it can't be a fluke over the whole season that we were only 3 points behind them this morning. We just don't seem to have any belief against big name teams like Leeds WBA Villa etc I can't understand it
  7. I hope I'm wrong but the weather forecast is dreadful for Saturday in Leeds - torrential rain and 50mph wind, when we had the previous storm recently nearly all the games were called off.
  8. With 5 wins in the last 6 games we're officially doing better than anyone else in the league on current form, you wouldn't believe it on reading some of the comments on here recently!
  9. We might get him if we go up
  10. Sl's aware he won't be around forever and he's trying to make the club able to exist without his handouts so it can stand on it's own two feet, I'm sure the income from food and drink outlets, the concerts etc all go towards paying the massive bill for the players wages but if you want to know the finer detail you'll have to wade through the company accounts.
  11. Oscar's article says how the club is only interested in making money yet it's losing money nearly every season, SL is putting money in not taking it out the commercial initiatives are just so the club can keep it's head above water
  12. Most fans go home happy if the team wins no matter how it's done, although I wasn't implying we'd have to play at home the way we do away just if we'd got that set of results
  13. I think a lot of the fans complaining on here would be happy if our away record was our home record and vice versa, we'd have the same number of points but the fans who only go to home games would have witnessed more wins.
  14. My original post which you responded to was that top managers don't want to come here, so Moyes pre-Everton wasn't a top manager
