  1. At Southend, Shrimpers v Whimpers.
  2. You are not reading between the lines! Pat Lam achieved what he set out to do at the beginnings of the season; to keep Bristol out of the relegation spot. In fact he did much better as Bristol's point total was the highest for any newly promoted team in eleven years. City had a terrible home record especially after the turn of the year and once again, missed out on playoffs. Do you understand why I'm not his biggest fan? I want him to do well because City are my club, but he has yet to convince me and many others.
  3. So have the Class of 92 done a good thing with Salford City or should they have helped Bury instead? Abd when the Man U players lose interest in Salford, will they be another club to fold? I cannot see why they thought that Greater Manchester needed another League club, especially one that is figuratively speaking, only a goal kick away from Old Trafford.
  4. I would be surprised if we are promoted in next four years. But that is for many reasons and not solely based on my opinion of Johnson. The major change in club philosophy is that we INTEND to win promotion rather than we HOPE TO. I fully understand how FFP impacts on our ambitions and that it is highly unlikely that we would knowingly break the rules and hope to get away with it, unlike some other clubs. So we aren't going to buy our way up like some clubs. I'm pleased that Lansdown has given a very good degree of security for both Lam and Johnson, but one has produced a much greater degree of consistency with results and improved team performance while the other, in my opinion, has not. If LJ can go a season without Boom & Bust results, provide us with a decent home record, then I may be able to feel more comfortable about him. I now await with interest, how good our transfer dealings are, both in and out.
  5. I got one of those at home. And a step daughter in law who is going to a Muse herself at another concert.
  6. That could be a case of separating the football club from the stadium. Like we did many years ago. Not sticking up for Villa, by the way but it could be totally innocent.
  7. Who cares anything about Chelsea and/or Lampard?
  8. Ref your first paragraph. Is that "did mention tonight (on the programme)" Or is it " spending a club record fee Tonight" Which is it please?
  9. Reading between the lines or considering what LJ did not say about Liam Walsh, it's not that he can't play, but a case of knuckling down and doing the right things. I remember when Houllier reportedly took one young Steven Gerrard aside and told him some home truths about himself and his attitude. The result was the making of a very good career. I guess that Walsh is probably at the same fork in the road and it's his decisions now which will determine if he takes the best direction for his career.
  10. Scrap the Champions League format and go back to champions only. Scrap the Premier League and go back to all Football League, including National League, with a fairer share out of the TV money. No parachute payments. I know it will never happen, but with the number of clubs in the country, it's the only fair way to go. We have to remember that our professional league system is unique in so many ways. All other countries are regionalised by league three, many of their second league teams are Top Tier second teams and attendance's at all of the four divisions below current Premier League are much higher than any comparable level in Europe. It would do some of the big clubs in England, good to fall from grace occasionally as Man U, Chelsea and Spurs did in the 1970/1980's. End of rant and dream for more equality in our football leagues.
  11. Freshen up midfield by selling Pack, Paterson, keep Brownhill, buy in a top quality midfield general and use Walsh and/or Morrell.
  12. Roy Bentley to Newcastle United in 1947. Born in Shirehampton. Went on to play for England twelve times scoring nine goals and captained Chelsea when they won their first First Division title in mid 1950's. Career record around 600 games and 175 goals.
  13. Do you think Rudolf has been there already?
