  1. What an excellent window in the transfer market we have just witnessed Get our business done early; then take our time to sort out the 'deadwood,' then sell or loan out the fringe. Shame about Morrell, but where would he have played? Equal shame about Eliason but he was a poor man's Walshy shuffle and lacking in that arrogance in front of goal to be more than a left sided 'chipper' Shipping out KP Nuts is a great bit of business; always seemed too slow for us and for someone with so much ability he looked like he was walking through treacle. He never looked fit, if he
  2. We have always maintained that there is only one team in Bristol, what if we extend that to only one team in the Bristol area? Rovers fans would be dead against losing heir identity, so might we, but is it ridiculous to have Bristol United? Or if that doesn't suit why don't we collaborate much more, currently the must obvious club to loan out talented young players to would be the Gas. Why send them to Newport, Torquay, Plymouth et al when Brian Tinnion could keep closer tabs on them at the Memorial? We have started a loan or two with their ex managers Ian Holloway and Dar
  3. Reckon Dean bought his trousers on e bay and got the measurements wrong. Perhaps they are the right length for his son. But do we really care? No because he didn't panic when his team were being bossed by Coventry's midfield and the arrival of Bakinson and Martin gave us control down the spine Delighted for you Dean, well done
  4. Without streaky Johnson 'tombolaing' we have every chance of going up as champions and we should expect nothing less Holden has got good players into our weakest areas, tons of experience to keep the heads high through tough times. Morell will be the surprise package and a must play, Quick football played to feet, flood the midfield and believe in ourselves COYR PS all the other teams are poor, there is no other obvious pick to go up
  5. Gertie from Amsterdam, fantastic debut, fantastic song to a Max Bygraves tune, anonymous in every match afterwards
  6. I hope, and pray, that our owners have seen the value of hiring the best possible coach that they can, via their rugby club. A coach so well respected that players can be persuaded to join us simply because of the reputation of that person. Holden may be talented, he may enable us to play better, but i can't believe that he could attract high calibre players. So for that reason i believe that the club are keeping so quiet because they are tying up a stellar appointment, who will put 5000 extra season ticket sales on the books. The messiah is coming!!! always believe
  7. Most of us cannot comprehend the astronomic salaries of players (myself included); so we get told how much they earn a week as if somehow that makes it easier and keeps them in touch with 'the working man' because he gets paid a wage. LJ was earning between £4 to 600,000 as his salary, so i can't feel too sorry for him as he will still be being paid for his unexpired contract Because he has tasted premiership money Hughton will expect his salary to be in millions, while Cook will have been paid far less. Probably less than half. Much as we might want Hughton and he may be the b
  8. how come Preston are one of the cleanest, they are a really niggly side
  9. Now we know who the rag tag teams are 'basket casing' their way out of the premiership; and that the champions of the league below have lost their star player because he is coming back to us, who should we be afraid of? I can't see any other side to bully us like Leeds have been doing for the past few seasons, or outspend us illegally like the Villains. Sure there are some talented managers who can get the most out of limited resources like Alex Neil at PNE but whoever we appoint as new coach will have to hit the ground running, as this has to be our year. The field is wide open
  10. dear Steve, Get a grip, you are a very wealthy man, have built a magnificent home in which to pamper your next 'amour' and have more recognition and praise from anyone who knows you than most could ever dream of. Just find the best you can possibly find, because you are worth it.
  11. I never thought anyone would listen to this plea but letting LJ go now, with a little dignity still intact was the right thing to do. Finding a proven manager to transform the club into serial winners like a Clough, Revie or Shankly is the next significant task, Come on SL don't settle for mediocrity, find the best you can.......because you are worth it
  12. Can anyone please share the aggregate results for our home fixtures during LJ's reign? if he had never played games at Ashton Gate he might still be in a job. Indeed i used to look forward to going to away games rather than fear another drab show at home. So for the new bloke coming in whoever you are all you've got to do is get the spine of your team sorted and make your home ground a fortress. and for what its worth SL wants promotion badly, i think he will surprise us all by finding the very best he can, in the same way that he fully backed his rugby club we all wan
  13. In which season have we ever won the league and the cup before. in which season will we ever win it again? Yes i know it was third tier but we filled our end at Wembley, we won 6-0 at Bradford, and our centre half scored a hat trick at home to Walsall. The nearest i have seen was early on in the season when things finally clicked for Alan Dicks and we got promoted to division one. We had power in midfield, care and touch in defence and beef in attack. Right now all our best players are out on loan, and the manager would be more helpful to the team if he was on furlough......perm
  14. So you own two clubs, one rugby, one football. In one you get relegated trying to run things on the cheap; so you hire the best coach you can find and give him full authority. Suddenly your clubs in the running for the premiership title. The other club you get relegated and then take a punt on a stroppy, opinionated manager. Who gives you the best season the club has ever had Next season he asks for a top striker, no other big money recruits, just a striker to give you 20 goals. Not even a full subs bench You don't like him standing up to you, so you replace him with
  15. Images of our heroic players spitting away to their mouths content must become a thing of the past If any good comes out of the corona virus then not spitting on the pitch, or anywhere in Birmingham for that matter, has to be a real benefit Lusty spitters like Patrick Viera would soak his shirt back in the day by flobbing feebly down his shirt and who could forget when Holland v Germany met
