  1. There's talk the clubs who have signed up for this should have their records expunged for the last 3 years and the competition retrospectively awarded to the highest place legitimate club. That makes Bristol City 2018 League Cup winners. Admittedly I am the one that started the talk.
  2. I also think it is unfair that the penalty kick was first introduced in 1891. Our club was formed in 1894 so there are quite a few clubs out there who have had three years extra practice.
  3. Liam Brady Malcolm Marshall Ian Botham (playing for Yeovil :laugh:)
  4. Norman Wisdom wasn't his real name he was the child of Mr and Mrs Park. Mrs Park asked which of them would think of a Christian name and Mr Park said 'Ewood'.
  5. As with the world wars, once everything returns to a semblance of normality once the pandemic is somewhat nullified will there be things that will have changed for ever, things that people will point to and say that pre-pandemic that was the case? For instance, will the football authorities continue to allow live domestic broadcasting of club matches once fans are allowed back into grounds as some supporters end up preferring that to attending in person having sampled it for a year? Some clubs might even find it's better financially to move into a smaller ground with room for just a few t
  6. I think we should eventually give Pearson a two year contract then give the job to Ranieri.
  7. I think on Tuesday night he will ask Simpson and Downing to pick the side, then when he gets the paper with their line up written on it he will laugh condescendingly then tear it in half screw each half up and stuff it down their throats.
  8. There's the possibility that being in the media spotlight will embolden the players to play out of their skins. It would certainly put Bristol City in the history books. A Hollywood blockbuster will surely follow. I can see Tom Hanks or Michael Caine as Steve Lansdown, Jim Carrey as Ashton and Nicole Kidman as Emma Hayes MBE. The players could be themselves in the film as it's never convincing when actors play footballers. Actually, second thoughts, it will be best to cast actors.
  9. I disagree. If they give Simpson the job they will be mindful of the Holden situation so will not give him a one year rolling contract like Deano but two six month rolling contracts to run concurrently.
  10. Must admit I don't know either whether it's a compliment or a dig. All I do know is it would be used in bad taste if Joan of Arc ever posted on here.
  11. When they ditched the 1897 on the badge etc and replaced with 1894 Jon Lansdown said that it was being stated that the reason 1897 was chosen over 1894 was because the board in 1997 weren't in situ in 1994 when the centenary wasn't celebrated so used 1897 for a marketing opportunity. That's what I kept harping on about on here. So it's great when they appear to listen to the fans. Well done SL and JL.
  12. Fair play to the man, he takes the blame. Looks like it won't be a quick process. I even wonder if some of these names on the list come from abroad. I got the impression that some are being considered who weren't in the summer.
  13. Jeez I forgot about Marinovic. How could I ever forget him??? That's like remembering Hardy but forgetting Laurel.
  14. The loan signing Fabian Geifer seems to be overlooked in all this despite being about six and a half feet tall. Currently the number one choice with Wurzburger Kickers.
  15. I would guess that was Danny Wilson who had been at Premier League Sheffield Wednesday in his previous job.
