  1. I don't know about you but I will not be satisfied until he walks down the tunnel in tears, shunned by his team-mates, lamenting how he has let the fans down again by daring to *check notes* be injured.
  2. This needs some momentum, it's a disgrace. A total cash grab as others have said, a cynical way of making money out of people with literally no justification. If it wastes you some time and paper charge £1. No-one would have a problem with that. Can you take it forward @Dollymarie @Blagdon red
  3. I think in a lot of cases this place is antagonistic, as we saw when DaveL was doing the job, and yes there are a few odd balls... but yeah, the answer isn’t “ignore at all costs”.
  4. This sounds very Lisa Knights. The club going for “style” over substance when replacing AB isn’t miles away from this. All the image of wonderful PR and so on, without actually having to engage with the riff-raff. I know this place is held in contempt by some at AG and it is a little off the wall sometimes but they could do a lot better than looking down on their own fan base.
  5. I don’t give a monkeys about your opinion, that’s why I’ve made sure I reply to your post, to make doubly sure you know how few monkeys I give.
  6. Calm down @maxjak it was a compliment. I know he's the forum's darling for these insightful match reports but come on.
  7. Enjoy the red-tinted specs we always get with these reports. A non-City supporting mate saw the winner ruled out on Quest and said it looked a pretty sure foul.
  8. It might be, given everything that’s happened. We’ll never know, but anyone who says a definite ‘no’ is either Lee Johnson or must’ve been hiding in the bushes at training with Bielsa.
  9. Pearson, Foster, McManus, Wilson... Yes, only four, but all were dreadful and from speaking to people who were around the club at the time, all had bad attitudes and were on far more than they were worth.
  10. This might be obvious to some but reading a comment in the LJ interview thread about the ambition of the Lansdowns it got me thinking about where we are. It wasn’t long ago that they were being criticised for us having barely moved forwards since SL came in, and though that was harsh considering the investment on and off the pitch, we hadn’t had a great deal to show for it in terms of other clubs, with smaller budgets, passing us by en route to the Premier League. But then I thought, well, where are we now? A club with play-off ambitions who are starting to be taken seriously in the Championship. That’s ok after five years, but maybe unspectacular. Then I looked at it in contrast with where we were after five years last time we were in the Championship... McInnes, his team of Scotsmen, and Martyn Woodford. Finishing 20th and only staying up in the last home game. According to SoccerBase, our most regular team that season was: James, McGivern, Nyatanga, Fontaine, Carey, Adomah, Elliott, Pearson, Kilkenny, Cisse, Maynard. Compare that with the squad we’ve got today and where we’re already at and it feels like a totally different club. That may be totally obvious to some of you but... it made me feel proud.
  11. Funny how they always seem to do that.
  12. I still want to know what it was of the can's that he's talking about.
  13. Radio Bristol's sports budget does a disservice to the word pawltry. To have a properly tailored post-match from even two clubs would mean running a second studio, which in itself requires 2-3 people as well. And given that they are so desperate for callers that the delightful Ian is called by the producers before he's even had a chance to ring in, there would be a lot of airtime to fill when you filter out the callers from other clubs getting involved. At the end of the day, it's Radio Bristol, not Radio Bristol City. And totally get that you might not be interested in how the Blue Few, Yeovil or Mangotsfield have got on, but I think there's a fair few who do.
  14. No need to go on the attack Dave. He came to City with his career going firmly one way and some reviews from Stoke that made their assessment of Afobe look positive. Sure no one will be happier to eat humble pie than the people you mention if he keeps his early form up. I wasn’t too worried about him signing as at worst, he’d be a great head to have in the dressing room but you can’t blame people for looking at his last few years and being unimpressed.
  15. Bad reactions to this but how’s he wrong? If he had something to say he'd say it. He did it a few weeks ago with a tweet about his “theory” on Lee Johnson. It’s ‘u ok hun’ territory.
