  1. Thanks Dave Some good points which I agree with and my typing is not good/quick enough to go through them all! I think the overall feeling I have is precisely what you say " football looks bad" ( a comment usually reserved for an OTIB match day thread!). There are so many people who are going to suffer on so many levels that I just would like to see players - predominantly in the Championship and Premiership do more to either help their Club or Community. The wages in football are,imo, just far too high and transfer values of fast approaching quarter of a billion quid just silly. In terms of a number of business's - football or otherwise which are not going to survive, however sad and unfortunate, many are operating on a flawed business model or are paying the price for a previous gamble or over stretching. I really hope that this terrible period for us all has some silver linings- and I hope a re-boot of football is one.
  2. So a player aged 20 gets 5 years income? If you can't see that the workers at a Football Club getting furloughed or binned or have a zero hours contract whilst playing staff carry on earning more in a week than these people would earn in a year is morally bankrupt then you must be a Banker.
  3. "I had a family, three kids, a mortgage. I think I lost about a stone in weight, it was devastating. None of us wanted to leave - but everybody wanted Bristol City to remain."( Geoff Merrick) Premiership and Championship players please take note. Get your snout out of the trough right now and support your club and the community that pays you and make the same sacrifices as so many are making. My love affair with football is being severely tested Angry rant over
  4. Has no one realised that you can still watch Belarus League football??? In an incredible turn of events Neman beat Vitebk 2-0. Crazy result! This was obviously eclipsed yesterday when Dynamo Brest thumped Slutsk 1-0. Absolutely incredible- the worlds gone mad. As the Belarus authoritarian/dictator President says: " There is no Corona Virus if you drink vodka and do farm work". (*) Thank goodness for football and all those involved in making such great decisions. (*) he really did say that.
  5. I think for the Mods to 'takeaway Chinese' comments is plump with humour yet also makes me feel hungry.
  6. Were you there that one time when the Milwall fans just poured in, chinned a couple of locals , turned over a couple of tables and just ran our again? It was a surreal experience because it seemed to happen in slow motion yet was about 10 seconds from start to finish.
  7. years ago ( 3rd div days) the Landlord used to sell joints of lamb to certain customers on the very cheap-and 'on the quiet'- I bought some now and then after a game- no questions. I've always wondered WTF since that stopped. What the hell was he doing and where the hell did he get them from? ..... probably best not to know thinking about it.
  8. What's your favourite pre/post match footie pub and why? Mine used to be the Try Again in BS3- proper Bristol and usually a great atmosphere. I graduated to the Nova Scotia as it was easy to park near there, lovely looking at the boats/suspension bridge and an enjoyable walk across the train river bridge and Greville Park. Brilliant on a good day and got more exciting as you see The Gate looming before you. These days- it's often The George at Abbots Leigh- lovely old pub and you get a few ( well behaved) away supporters stopping there on way from M5 so you can have a friendly chat. Nice and handy to drive down through Failand and park by David Lloyd. I love pubs and these great places are as vulnerable as an a 93 yr old man with immune deficiency.Thanks to Steve Lansdown our club will survive but these Bristol institutions which have survived just about everything the world can throw at them including bombing may not be so lucky this time around.
  9. What a fantastic gesture by our players on as much as £20,000.00 per week (or more) to donate a small proportion of their salary ( which gets paid no matter what) to a help and assistance fund for the elderly and/or vulnerable long term loyal City fans to help ensure they get the provisions they need to get through this crisis. A wonderful gesture to those people who have supported City through thick and thin over decades despite their own personal circumstances. Or did I just make this up because that's what I'd most like to happen?
  10. A lot of posters agreed with you in November.
