  1. This competition is going to become a joke. Prem teams are really not going to take it seriously and it will just die a slow, long, lingering death.
  2. Based on this, It won’t be long before they call themselves the famous quarters.
  3. I strongly suspect that Holden was not the Board’s first choice. If this was the case, he would have been offered the role weeks ago. Instead, I suspect that the Board have been involved in detailed conversations with potentially a number of different people, but have unable to come to an agreement (whether due to salary, transfer budgets or recruitment control, we can only speculate). However, it can’t be good for Holden’s confidence to know the Board didn’t really want him and is considered the cheap option by most fans. Not exactly the best start to a new job, and he hasn’t
  4. ... plus the revenue generated from Europa League football next season.
  5. Yes, they’re due to move into their new stadium next year. Wael said so. https://www.bristolpost.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/full-transcript-wael-al-qadis-3180637
  6. We would have to officially change our name to ‘Steven Gerrard’s Bristol City’. That would really piss me off every time time I heard it. For that reason alone, it’s a ‘no’ for me. On a more serious point, I’m not sure how much he’ll buy into ‘the project’. He’ll be out to maximise points in the short term and move on.
  7. It’s a great way to get the EFL to abandon the league. Therefore, my only request is to wait until we’re in the play offs before doing so.
  8. If you don’t pay your employees’ wages (albeit temporarily) because you claim you’ve got cash flow issue, but then splash the cash buying new players, I can understand the concern. However, in this case, I understand that the wage deferrals have been agreed by the players, so I don’t think any external sanctions are required - unless the club have misled the players in any way... To be honest, I would be more upset if clubs were furloughing staff, claiming Govt subsidies and not topping up their employees wages, whilst still finding the funds for new signings.
  9. Good on him if he does a lot for charity, and I genuinely mean that. However, him donating a picture that he painted whilst tax payers were paying 80% of his wages is not really doing it for me. it would be interesting to know how long it took to paint his picture, and how much it therefore cost the tax payer for him to paint it. We could then compare it to how much he raised for the NHS to find out who the real winner is.
  10. I’ve just read the latest column from Hollowhead. This is usually good for a laugh, but has left me sick in the stomach this time. https://www.bristolpost.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/ian-holloway-bristol-rovers-debt-4035810 He starts by talking about how clubs are reacting to Coronavirus and says “Greed is evident everywhere and we need to get back to a mentality of looking out for one another, rather than grasping for everything we can get. Nowhere is the need for change more obvious than in professional football where the rich continue to get richer at the expense of t

  12. A workman is only as good as the tools he has to work with. Let’s face it, we don’t have a stream of Premier League managers looking to poach (and play) many of our 1st team anymore. Even where a Prem team have come in for one of our players in recent years, all too few of them make a success of it. It’s all too easy to blame the manager, but we simply don’t have the resources to compete at the top end of the table. A change of manager will not change that position, and I really cannot see any other manager we could reasonably expect to recruit doing much better than LJ without significan
  13. Personally, I don’t mind the language. However, I’m not sure about bringing my youngest kid to an away match now, when I wouldn’t have minded a couple of years ago when their older sibling was the same age.
  14. I don’t think it helps when it was after the whistle had been blown.
