  1. Would guess it comes down to the offers they receive. Can only guess what the transfer market will look like this summer, Championship in particular.
  2. As I said.... And evidently can't link! Give Holden a shot, he does okay, says he loves the project, £££££££s saved.
  3. Joey Deacon was a fantastic orator compared to these two. Even without his mate Ernie there to translate.
  4. A few early nights, and 3 balanced meals a day and a bit of exercise thrown in will do that.
  5. Yet they consider our signing of Taylor as purely an attempt to screw them over. Taylor did okay for us, he was only ever going to be a bit-part player, one of those busy players who would chase everything in the last 20 minutes. They claim he wasn't given a chance, but the reality is he wasn't quite good enough for 90 minutes against a solid Championship back 4, but could put in a solid 20 or 30 minutes against a tiring back 4 in the latter stages of a game. Whilst he has had injury problems, it seems to be a similar tale for one of their other big money movers, Bodin who hasn'
  6. Dear 12/18/24 month appointment, Any chance of getting some seats in the concourse, chips sold by some of the internal concessions and the PA fixed in the Dolman? Also, can you spend a load of money (it's a sign of intent), make things universally cheaper (it's our right), keep our best players (naturally)- but at the same time as keeping our best players, and spending a fortune please sell enough players for an inflated price so we make a massive profit (enough money generated each window that it would pay for a new stadium for a lower league team to thrive). On a personal leve
  7. I was about to ask similar! Back when the Doncaster Belles were the all conquering ladies side, the qualification being being Keeper seemed to be restricted to; Can you flap at everything? if something is too easy a save for you to flap at, do you promise to let it in anyway? Should you have the ball in hand, and therefore have nothing to flap at, so you promise to either throw it in to your own net, or throw it to the opposition and then revisit all flapping opportunities? Thankfully, the standard is a million times better now. So basically, the keeping position
  8. Pals of mine bought a flat a while back and used whoever it was their mortgage broker recommend, flat was in Bristol, legals done via some firm in Manchester. Never spoke to the same person twice, they were pretty convinced it was a generic call centre with one legally trained person per 250 agents. Don't know their name, but evidently they were shit as well.
  9. My personal account manager won't be. I'll have to go back to sending real ones again!* *for the record, I DON'T actually post poo to people. So if you wanted one, you're out of luck, and if you are my personal account manager, in the words of Shaggy; 'It wasn't me.
  10. Lodging money with the EFL would be a good thing, I agree. But that then makes clubs in financial distress all the more difficult to sell, not all owners would be able to raise that sort of money. But i agree that something needs to be done.
  11. Difficult decision, especially as the forum is well moderated and because of that, most people abide by the rules. So allowing a negative response likely saves a lot of time trying to wade through a lot of the nonsense and deciding if it's a post or poster who is getting grief. Would it not be an idea - just for the next week or so, to see how many positive reactions are posted, and how many negatives, can't say I have seen too many negatives, but then I don't read every post. Or maybe cap the number of negative reactions people can make? I have seen people say they have run out
  12. I think if the EFL had any inkling that the new buyer was going to spend circa 41m on buying the club, undertaking the 28mil debt etc and then immediately pull the plug, they would have blocked the sale and called in the men* with white coats. It makes no logical sense. *Other genders, including fluid may be summoned.
  13. User generated content keeps this place active and flowing, and in a sea of opinions there will be views that are the polar opposite to how someone else views a particular situation. Emojis are useful for those who have a view and either don't have time or indeed the inclination to articulate there point. That said, if someone is in disagreement, maybe ignoring a post you don't have time for is a better plan than visually trying to rubbish it. It could be that some posters are mindful that a debate could lead to personal insults (attack the post, not the poster), could be they t
  14. Nah, they want to give a caretaker time to impress, then they can take the cheap option!
  15. despite my previous post delighting at my improved diet, I do miss going out for breakfast on a Saturday morning still. That said, EAT A PITTA reopened on Saturday! Have been looking forward to that since lockdown. (Haven't been yet, it's only a couple of minutes away), because I still have fresh food here!
  16. We (the Royal 'we') have seen our diet improve beyond all recognition since lockdown. With me and the Doris both working from home we are both more likely to be in at the same time, so eating at the same time has been a lot easier. Add to that the panic buying that too place in the first couple of weeks, our shopping habits have changed massively. 3 visits a week to a local butchers, 1 or 2 visits to a green grocers for fresh produce and pretty much no waste, no spoiled food due to buying stuff we never had time to cook and no meals out and we have been saving a fortune, eating
  17. Didn't think it was worth starting a new thread, but.... The smart money is going on Paulo Sousa. Think about it. Manages in France. Mark Ashton likes a bit of an annual trade with a French club. Bristol and Bordeaux are twinned. He is Portuguese, which probably means something, somehow. Oh, and he did say he intends to resign at the end of the season. Makes perfect sense.
  18. I caught this the moment I saw the words 'fans' and 'supporters'. We are customers/wallets/contact-less consumers. Cracking post however!
  19. Don't thing they are listed, very few football teams are these days, they are worth what someone is stupid enough to buy the debts for!
  20. My local is anything but safe, sensible or measured! There are, however pubs that meet this criteria not too far away, so i might book a midweek table for a meal in a week or two, as it would be nice to go out fora couple of hours.
  21. I am thinking or leaving it another 21/28 days, with some reporting saying that around 40% of people display no symptoms, you wonder just how long it will be until the R rate changes and we are back to another kickdown situation.
  22. Did you go to a pub this weekend, if so, how was it? I am still thinking I'll leave it a few more weeks yet, there was something strangely nice about not going to the pub and it being my decision.
