    That was far from an awful Barnsley. Very impressed with them.

    Agree a Barnsley that have beaten millwall and drawn with Swansea and wba in the last month. For some reason we should always beat the bottom 3 in the championship 3 or 4 nil.  Although not the best performance some luck. Whilst out of form  you need to grind out results we are doing that. It is far from perfect but the ; league game losing run (brentford aside) addressed a previous 4 on the bounce losses. We are in the mix so enjoy the ride

    Petrol in Greenland costs the equivalent of about 9p a litre. It is the country with perhaps the biggest remaining oil reserves. Oil exploration across the Arctic circle is increasing all the time. 

    With all that said, I don't think we should really have to pay over the odds for our annual signing from either Barnsley or Preston.

    Good debating with you mate. I'm just concerned over how long this will take. We had an opportunity at Christmas the season before last to really go for it and instead we retreated. As a result three of our best players decided their future wasn't at Bristol City. I fear this pattern of developing good players and then losing them will continue and we will remain a Championship team unless a miracle occurs. We had a miracle with Alan Dicks but it took a hundred years for him to turn up. 

    Going back to comparing Bristol City and Man City there are several similiarities. Both formed in 1894 and both pre-eminent in the early 1900s. Both suffered a decline and dropped into the third level of League football. It was surely by emulating the models of the best Club set-ups in Europe that Man City achieved what they now. And they did it by hiring the very best people, not just players but business people, executives, coaches and of course the best Club manager in football? Bristol City have wasted millions on countless substandard players (even if we set aside the millions spent on the marquee striker signings), neglecting to appoint the most important element, the very best managers (with the exception of Dicks).

    A miracle imo is being in division 2. This is what is required to get to the premiership. We are an established as a competitive championship club which history cannot dictate future but it is based stability of management., development of academy and generally better success in signings. All clubs are selling clubs just where you are in the pecking order. Loyalty does not generally exist in football like any other professional business and that works both ways. 

    Like all pre seasons we await signings. Marquee names (excuse the gasism) but I do believe the structure management youth development gives us a great platform for the continual success we desire.
