  1. Superb, congratulations to all but especially Mr Landsdown
  2. I think the location thing can also be a good thing for us. I think players willing to move away from home And out of their comfort zones to further their careers Will be more mature than those who stay locally. My opinion isn’t based on a vast survey, just on my cousins son who played from 7 for his hometown club, resisted going out on loan repeatedly and finally was ‘encouraged’ to go to Yeovil and a London club. He liked Yeovil but absolutely hated the London club, but I think it was the making of him, he went back, won a place and played in the championship for a couple of seasons befor
  3. Pitch at the Mem looks in better nick than recent times
  4. Take the ******* job Dean, prove the doubters wrong and show us that you are worthy of the position. I will support your teams , hope for victory and sing your name when you get it right. It’s a ******* tough job, it rarely ends well but make it your own, do your best and get us up...this is your chance to write your own history...and ours. Good luck sir
  5. I honestly don’t know if they’ve handled it well, there’s been next to nothing released officially by the club, probable there’s been leaks to the press and definitely a lot of speculation. I enjoy reading people’s views, guesses and insider knowledge during transfers but until the player is on the roof it’s just that, similarly with this manager appointment. using the F1 analogy, Lando Norris hasn’t been doing badly this season but would Lewis Hamilton do better in the same car? (I don’t know, probably) Would Houghton get more out of our squad than Dean Ashton? Maybe? That’s the thing
  6. Are the 2 things not both possible?
  7. I hope whoever gets the job does well and I’ve not seen anything that suggests any of the candidates are guaranteed success or failure. I have no input into the selection process so have no choice but to trust in those who do, and they’ll see and learn a lot more about the candidates than I will and therefore are better placed to make the right appointment Will the appointment stop me going to watch City? No, Covid 19 will, and that’s probably a good thing in some ways as it allows the new manager play his team and prove his worth without the toxicity an angry crowd can bring - whoe
  8. Whilst they can read reports, achievements and past records of the applicants if it were my club I’d want to meet them, see the whites of their eyes, hear their enthusiasm and vision, share my vision and really get a feel for the candidate and determine whether I can trust them with the stewardship of my club. Just because someone did something in the past doesn’t mean they will do it again.
  9. The problem with diluting the content across a larger number of platforms is that the consumer normally needs to spend more to access all of the matches...even with fewer matches I don’t see Sky or BT reducing their prices (many are already on 18 month contracts)
  10. I was there, had the potential to be a great day...my reality was a little different. searched approaching Temple Meads so missed train! When finally got in the ground some **** was trying to rip down the advertising hoarding above the terrace causing a surge and I was one of a few people crushed (cider and heat didn’t help things). Finally got over the wall (police tried to come over to get me but kept getting attacked by our fans) got stretchered to the first aid facility (a garden shed!) Left the shed at the end of the game and walked to the small station down the road (Oldfield
  11. Gutted, just gutted...so f*****g sad
