  1. Since everyone is throwing names around I thought I’d I have my tuppence worth. Resigned from Velez Sarsfield in March after two successful seasons, qualifying for the Copa Sudamerica both times. Is a paid up member of the Bielsa fan club having played under him for Argentina. Bielsa also managed Velez Now looking for his first managerial job in Europe. Probably will go to Spain. He’s apparently friendly with Simeone and Guardiola, so very well connected. An absolute long shot, but I would imagine both Bielsa and Pep would speak reasonably highly of us as a club and a stable
  2. Championship clubs returned to training today with the head coach of Bristol City, Lee Johnson, having spoken to his black players to allay any fears they may have of resuming action and risking infection with Covid-19. Johnson has also been addressing the mental health of players cooped up during lockdown, with professional help on standby, and talked with his chief executive, Mark Ashton, about asking the EFL if they can pipe crowd music into Ashton Gate if and when they resume behind closed doors. Johnson read the report from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport pe
  3. Colin Cramb. Reserves against the Gas reserves. 6-0. He scored all 6. I lived on Cumberland Road at the time. Was supposed to be writing a report from home, but by good fortune sneaked to AG.
  4. That’s right. A night game. As stated above, they filmed in the corner of the East End next to the Dolman. We won 3-1. Late nineties I think.
  5. Read an article about Remdesivir today. As Wendyredrobin says the results from a non scientific trial look extremely promising. It doesn’t cure the virus but seems to reduce the severity of the symptoms and reduce the mortality rate significantly. The results of a world wide scientific study are due out in May. Could be a game changer. Fingers crossed.
  6. The problem is it only takes one player or club official to test positive and the whole club will have to be put in lockdown for 14 days. This will lead to the postponement of 2/3 games per club plus the time necessary to prepare for the next game. In addition, it’s unrealistic to expect a club to come out of lockdown and be expected to play a game the next Saturday or Tuesday. Given how infectious the virus is it’s likely that every club is going to be put into lockdown at least once, which is going to lead to a chaotic fixture backlog. For what purpose?. To quote Jock Stein
  7. I can’t see how any football will be played until the safety of the players can be guaranteed and any likelihood of cross infection from players training with each other, or from opposing team players, has been eliminated. That’s going to happen until there’s a vaccine or a drug which significantly reduces the severity of the virus.

  9. He’s getting part of his pay and he doesn’t have to watch the gas every week. What’s not to like.
  10. Yes but plenty, won’t and some clubs will have more immune players than others. You obviously can’t play those who have no immunity. So let’s say in our squad we have 20 immune players and, pick any other championship club you like, say PNE or example, only have 10 players with immunity. How are you going to organise a competitive league on that basis?
  11. The govt aren't going to allow football to restart until they’re certain that the risk of transmission of the virus has been reduced to a very low level. That effectively means a vaccine being available which according to the experts is 12 months away. Then you have think about mass production of the vaccine and inoculating the entire population which is going to take, I don’t know, say 3 months minimum. Even If you go down the route of playing behind closed doors you have to ensure the safety of the players, officials etc which you can’t do without an effective vaccine.
  12. The way things are going we’ll be scrapping next season as well. Can’t see any competitive football being played until August 2021 at the earliest.
  13. Larry Lloyd turned out to be quite useful. European Cup winner etc. From Henbury, hopefully no relation to you know who. I believe Harold Jarman was Ashton born and breed, but we didn’t offer him terms.
  14. As mentioned above Red Red Robin by Al Jolson was the traditional tune played when the team ran out on to the pitch. I can certainly remember it being played mid 60s and believe it was played as far back as the 50s as well, although would need older fans to corroborate that.
