  1. This is the sort of thing you hear most weeks said by muppets at football grounds but very rarely see it written down. Really enjoyable.
  2. Josh Brownhill is less than two years older than Liam Walsh and clocked up 150+ more league appearances. It’s not rocket science, he has to play football.
  3. I feel so pleased for him, I really do, because he’s had to do it the hard way for us. Within half an hour of the Leeds game I thought he looked a completely different player to what we’d seen before, despite people pouncing on him for a couple of poor mistakes. He’s not perfect - and neither was Adam Webster, by the way - but he seems to be learning quickly and you can’t ask for more than that. If he keeps improving, with his very obvious leadership qualities and demeanour, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if this time next year he was Bristol City captain.
  4. In fairness, we were 13th last Christmas and went on to finish eighth.
  5. Call me a cynic but I’d love to know what’s gone on that’s led to him joining us.
  6. I see this written a lot and, while we’ve spent money, it also has to be acknowledged that we’ve also sold/lost our best player(s) every summer. So, yes, he’s been backed but the club have still raked in more than they’ve spent in terms of transfer fees. As a side note - and I’m not suggesting this is your particular point, but others do obsess over it - it’s completely irrelevant and out of context to compare the fees we’re spending now to any other period in our history. Spending £1m on Lee Trundle and £2.5m on Nicky Maynard were, at the time, fairly big deals!
  7. So... this one's actually happening.
  8. Steve Lansdown needs to pop it in holiday mode and come back to it again tomorrow, I think.
  9. I should add to this - Arsenal are expecting him to go on loan, which is good news for us!
  10. "Talks are ongoing" as far as Arsenal are concerned, but apparently we're not the only club still in for him.
  11. Right, I’ve held out long enough, I’ve taken the plunge and asked some questions at the Arsenal end... keep your fingers crossed.
  12. Having been really complimentary about the way we started our summer business, I’ve found the last 48 hours pretty concerning, honestly. We’re about to lose our best player, which is understandable considering the money involved but not ideal for a promotion-chasing team who’ve built their entire pre-season around a defence that’ll never play a competitive game together. The first name mooted to be coming in since that news broke? A man who couldn’t get in our side last season, but who the head coach was convinced would be an exciting addition on the condition of a full pre-season working together... Only the football season starts tomorrow and he’s still not signed. Look, we have to reserve judgment until 17:00 on 8 August. We’ll have to continue to give the benefit of the doubt until a good while after that to allow the dust to settle. But while Lee Johnson is “less confident” of keeping Adam Webster, I’m definitely less confident of us delivering everything we’ve promised to since last May.
  13. No set extra time and penalties, just next goal wins. Every 5 minutes during the extra period both teams lose a player.
  14. Not bought my ticket yet. Although I'm not going, so that'd make sense.
