  1. Craig Bellamy favourite for the Oxford manager`s job

    Haha, you’re welcome, but no I don’t think he has been... Kitson, as a player, didn’t rate Cotterill. Phileas, presumably, does rate Cotterill for what he achieved here. I have no information, as of yet, on who does or doesn’t rate Kitson (but Phileas likes his books). Cotterill is probably less enthused about the books. Warnock is “actually quite good” at reading. Bellamy had something to do with this to begin with, but I’ve lost track as to what. Kieran Agard is king.
  2. Craig Bellamy favourite for the Oxford manager`s job

    Pretty sure he means Kitson didn’t rate him, based on the books...
  3. New England Kits

    Haha, I’m just explaining where the blue comes from. I know it’s not on our flag, but it’s on our crest. Not saying it’s right or wrong, was just trying to help. And hence it was a genuine question if you disagree with the three lions - you may well do, and that’s fine.
  4. New England Kits

    I don’t know if it’s “represented by colours” as such, more that the logo forms the crest of the England football team and thus some colour is taken from that to inform the kit. Not sure it’s a massive statement or anything... unless you disagree with the three lions?
  5. New England Kits

    It’s got blue because that’s the colours of the FA (i.e. the three lions). So it represents the flag and the football.
  6. Liverpool coming to town...

    Will Luke Williams be there?
  7. This Penalty nonsense...

    Yeah, I guess so, at least on the penalty front. I just think the subjective lines would be a little clearer, perhaps, and the punishment would fit the crime better. Think it removes a lot of subjectivity from handball decisions though. No longer would you have a cross hitting a hand from 5 yards as a penalty in one game, and not in another - it’d just be a free kick every time. Totally with you on enforcing the rules better in general. Half of every team would be sent off simply for what they say to the referee if they stuck to their guns. I’m all for that - they’d soon learn.
  8. This Penalty nonsense...

    Yes @spudski, and yes @LondonBristolian. Often have the exact same conversation about penalties and handballs. Hits a hand: free kick. Player clearly handballs deliberately: free kick and yellow card. Deliberate handball denying a clear shot/goal: penalty and red card*. Normal foul in the box: free kick. Deny a clear shot on goal, in or out of the box: penalty. There’s nothing more nonsensical than a player being clean through on goal, but then getting hacked down a yard outside the box and thus only getting a free kick. That’s far more deserving of a penalty than, as @spudski says, being clipped in the corner of the box by the byline. Only rules I’d change about football, I think. Other than “Bristol City win by default”, of course. Oh, and golden goal, because it’s awesome. *I’d actually be in favour of awarding penalty goals in some cases, such as bloody Suarez against Ghana.
  9. Assistant Referees

    Was late 2013, in South London (Bexley I think). Can’t remember exactly how many sessions it was - 2 or 3 full days, and an evening perhaps, followed by the exam. Something like that.
  10. Assistant Referees

    At my referee training, the teachers couldn’t even explain that element of the offside rule. There were two video examples they used, one in which the defender tried to kick the ball clear, the other in which the defender tried to head it. In both cases, they mistimed it and ended up flicking the through ball on to the attacker (the intended recipient of the pass). According to them, one was onside, the other was offside, and we all ripped up our notes and decided to play Cluedo instead. It was a shambles. Ever since that course, I’ve never been surprised when referees make mistakes.

    “We need to make sure anyone we bring in has the right attitude, commitment, values, off field persona, social life, family set up, lifestyle, etc. for Bristol City. Everyone we have here now has proven themselves to have the right attitude, commitment, values, off field persona, social life, family set up, lifestyle, etc. for Bristol City, and we’re really aiming to establish a clear attitude, commitment, set of values, off field persona, social life, family set up, lifestyle, etc. that becomes synonymous with Bristol City” Or... ”We need to make sure anyone we bring in has the right DNA. Everyone we have here now has proven themselves to have the right DNA, and we’re really aiming to establish it as the expected ‘Bristol City DNA’.” Nope, me neither. I’d understand if it were a new-fangled term that we’d invented and were pushing, but ‘DNA’ has been used to mean “the fundamental characteristics” of things or people for generations. Bristol City haven’t coined this usage. It’s become a buzzword for us, sure, but it means what it means.
  12. penalty takers???

    Not many have lasted long, and he joined us last June - how much longer will he stay? Just trying to preempt @dunsteral‘s next move
  13. How long will Luke Williams stay?

    Someone’s only just come down from the celebrations v Manchester... So far, @dunsteral, you tucked your first penalty away neatly but have slammed this one into orbit. We await your third with nervous anticipation...
  14. Liverpool's Jon Flanigan signs for Bolton plus other signings

    No, they sold him to Cardiff.
  15. Lucic

    I really hope nobody’s been listening to Mark Ashton’s interviews and genuinely believed he’s talking about actual DNA. If so, they should probably make it a priority to buy themselves some new jeans...
