  1. You've pretty much covered my thoughts on it. The whingeing fans who think they have it tough, the marketing guy who sounds like he might think David Brent is a role model but as you say the transfer deadline day was interesting and maybe should make fans think twice before they hurl abuse at chairmen for not spending the money. For those who didn't see it, star striker's Maja demands (or at least his agents demands) were met, but the player still left enabling the agent to make himself a sum of money that most of us would only see if we won the lottery.
  2. Its the last time I will say it was a hypothetical question that if Lansdown suggested in a spirit of altruism would you support it. I'm not suggesting it, or advocating it, I wish I hadn't asked
  3. That is a good shout actually, or at least have a truncated version of it.
  4. The fact is most people there refer to it as Derry anyway, protestants and catholics.
  5. Yes, that was the point, I was imagining Lansdown doing it as some altruistic gesture. I think I have my answer anyway
  6. There is no reason, it was a hypothetical question, and Lansdown would be acting purely out of a desire to reunite people. True, but like I said, it was purely hypothetical.
  7. I've a spare case if you need some.
  8. IF, and although this is obviously hypothetical it suddenly doesn't seem so far fetched, football & society is devastated by this virus, with thousands of deaths and dozens of clubs Rovers being one of them, go to the wall. If then City survive and the league is reformed into a much smaller number of clubs, what would you think if Lansdown announced a proposal to merge the clubs, call them Bristol United , play in red and blue etc, and he is doing it purely as a gesture to bring people together after a catastrophic period of history, what would you think? I'm not trying to be flippant about the current awful situation and I really don't think the outcome will be as bad as the picture I have painted, but I am really interested in genuine answers. There has been a lot of talk that this virus could bring everyone together and that we will all learn a lesson from this in many other areas of life, but would this be a step too far for you?
  9. The problem, as ever, is extremes. Every November my Facebook goes into meltdown with mates going ballistic over this guy's decision not to wear a poppy, yet the same mates often post 'jokes' about the British Army killing various different nationalities and members of certain religions. It's a two way street, for every action there is a reaction. There is absolutely no doubt that Britain has a shameful past when it comes to Ireland, but that goes back hundreds of years and people have to move on. Its now over 20 years since the Good Friday agreement and I don;'t think anyone could argue that things have definitely improved, draw a line under it all, if Martin McGuiness and Ian paisley were able to do that, then so should those on both sides of the divide. McClean might have a wider point on the fact that people need to be more aware of the history but his post was a dumb way of getting that across.
  10. Admins , this poster needs banning.
  11. Me too, I cannot believe my luck, just about to cash out on my 25% (I was 55 in December) and my fund has been devastated.
  12. The difference between City 18 years ago and now is immeasurable, he took on a long term project and you will reap the benefits one day. The closest club I could compare it to is Celtic, When Fergus McCann took over in the early 90s the club was in a right state and about to move away from Celtic Park. He ignored the fan's abuse who just wanted him to chuck money at the team (this was in the days of Rangers 9 in a row) and insisted the club needed long term infrastructure investment instead. He was right and Celtic are enjoying the rewards now.
  13. Yes, I think with Lansdown around it is inevitable.
  14. I'm willing to bet that most people on this forum, faced with losing a holiday that probably cost around £2K, with no possibility of recompense , would still go on that holiday after considering what would appear to be a minimal health risk to themselves.
