  1. Can anyone remember the year? early 70's? The police just marched the Blues fans into the east end very early. They stood right behind the goal, with fights kicking off all around the edges, but we never got our 'rightful' places back i think they won 2-0, can't remember if Trevor Francis was playing, when he was 16/17 years old and ridiculously talented it was not a great day for us reds. here's hoping for better times today
  2. Ok i admit i was wrong, didn't think that promoting Holden was the right call, couldn't see us improving on the streaks of previous seasons. But fair play as i cannot praise the coaching staff enough for finding the right positions for key players. At last COD is tearing up a midfield role, Nagj looks so much better further forward and Bakinson looks so silky. We are getting results and showing some nouse when it comes to closing games out. We are not playing well for very long in games but we can string moves together and do just enough to shade a game; This is remar
  3. and that is why we sold one of our best players for diddly squat money sadly
  4. we need a central defender who is more comfortable using his left foot
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Gertie from Amsterdam, fantastic debut, fantastic song to a Max Bygraves tune, anonymous in every match afterwards
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. how come Preston are one of the cleanest, they are a really niggly side
  13. 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
  14. 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.
