  1. At least you won't have to buy a face mask!
  2. Someone who can sort out what the club seems to have been dogged by for the last 40 years, the softest of soft underbellies. Even in our best season, in terms of the highest finishing position in the league since we were last in the top flight, ie 2008 with GJ, we had already blown what should have been automatic promotion to the Prem, and then we bottled it in the final v Hull. Either side of that we had what seemed to be good managers (Ward and Cotterill) who both won brilliant promotions, only for it all to go pear shaped once we arrived in the Championship. Chuck the likes of Copp
  3. At least Walsh is capable of a "box entry", bodes well for next season..
  4. The old adage is that a successful team are able to win/grind out a good result, even when they play poorly or not to their best level of performance. The one thing we have been able to do under LJ's managerial time (which must surely be over very soon) is an ability, when on a good LJ streak, to grind out a good result, especially away from home in the last 2 seasons. And that is fine, results are everything. But when you lose that ability ie we took the lead against Blackburn against the run of play then capitulated, and in the last 2 games we have started brightly, not had the ruthlessnes
  5. I want him gone as you do, but I totally agree that the good and bad streaks are such a "thing" about his managerial career, that we should not discount the possibility. The streaks have pretty much been present through his entire time in management, but the one thing we can't be totally sure of is that, just because our current form has been abysmal plus the fact that the last 2 seem to have blown our play off chances does not mean we can't get back on a winning run (with a little caveat at the end of this!) To check out our most current history we started our most recent good run after
  6. Yes, fair point SOD's dead cat bounce was a bit longer than the Watford game, but by the time we had gone through a "no win" period with a relegation between March and October, I was just willing the board to take action, so felt that, especially after the "stupid question" interview, the writing was on the wall. So I have no problem with the concept of wishing the team to take a defeat or 2 to speed up the process. However, at the moment, for me, that time has not quite arrived, but we are only a couple of shockers away from thinking that the time is right for not wanting a win, to push the
  7. I definitely felt like I couldn't care less about results prior to SOD's sacking, knowing that he was only a bad result or 2 from getting kicked out anyway, so I have been there before. But SOD was a total disaster after his 1st game against Watford, and had the club perilously close to getting relegated to the bottom league. So it is a different situation. We still have a chance of getting into the Premier League. But if things don't improve beginning on Wednesday, we will soon have no chance. I voted for LJ to get sacked in today's poll, for all the reasons we all know about. But i
  8. Any OTIB people go to this, the festival that Michael Eavis attended and decided to start his own festival at Worthy Farm, Pilton, AKA Glastonbury a few months later in September 1970. I was at this one as a 14 year old with 2 school-mates, a brilliant event music wise, albeit chaotic organisation. Jefferson Airplane, Frank Zappa, Canned Heat, Fairport, Pink Floyd, Led Zep, Santana, Colisseum, Steppenwolf, John Mayall/Peter Green, the list goes on. 50 bloody years ago this weekend!!!!! http://www.ukrockfestivals.com/bA1.html https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bath_Festival_of_Blues_
  9. To correct my own mistake, it was The Stockholm Strings and Horns!
  10. Totally agree, as per my post above, just watched it, amazing!
  11. Just watched it, absolutely brilliant, don't know how I missed this back in 2003. Arthur died 3 years later. They were backed by the Stockholm Strings and Brass, who also backed Brian Wilson's Band during the mid to late 2000s, notably when they toured the long awaited Smile album with him in 2004, and carried on touring with him for a few years after. One of them was unfortunately killed in the Tsunami. Getting back to Love, Forever Changes is a fantastic album, to see it performed live (albeit on TV) makes you realise just how sophisticated a piece of music it is, with the orchestrate
  12. Sorry to be pedantic in correcting my own post, but that should read 4 and a half years, which makes it worse!
  13. It is probably the most insulting comment that a manager can come out with, directly towards the players (especially those who don't get picked for the next line up), and indirectly insulting the intelligence of us fans, as we should be able to assume that he has trust in his squad, after 3 and a half years of "the right DNA" recruitment, as a given. I ask this as someone who really wants our head coach/manager to bring success to the club, and with the knowledge of LJ's history of going from a really bad streak to a winning streak for no apparent reason, but how would LJ feel if Jon or S
