  1. Painful to watch. We cannot keep the ball for more than a few seconds. If we get away with this I will be amazed and happy. I'll keep my gob shut.
  2. What can we expect? Should I buy £10 tv ticket or take dog for a walk on the beach? We've already lost at home to our jinx teams, Birmingham and Millwall, so why should it be any different today? Even the great god, Cotterill could not achieve a win! Maybe I will be proved totally wrong but why should another game against PNE be any different to the last ten years?
  3. This is the umpteeth serious injury in the last five/six years since Cotterell left us. Bristol City have a serious problem and it need rectification without delay. If it is allowed to continue, the result will be that we end up in a much lower place than now.
  4. Great win at a place where we rarely get anything. I drove to the game and parked a bit away from the stadium near Garrison Lane. As I got out of the car, a boy asked if he could mind my car. I was feeling generous so paid my 50 pence. He immediately counted the money in his pocket and smiled when he said he had enough to go to the game! I asked about minding the car and he pointed at a little lad aged about three. "That's my brother and he will look after the car". I smiled and set off to the game. Brilliant 4-0 win. When I got back to the car, the little boy was still the
  5. As second poster so rightly says there is a big difference in rugby toward referees. However as one who has followed both codes since 1950, it's not all rosy and squeaky clean in rugby. Since, or in fact just a few years before, the advent of professionalism, it was clear to me and many others, that the players were pushing the limits in a way not previously seen. Now, time wasting is rampant, the forward pass is considered acceptable except when it's over obvious. Line outs don't have a gap anymore, ball thrown "slightly" away from the centre. Scrum halves feed the second row of the
  6. Depends on how far back you go. When I started watching, replays took place in the midweek immediately after the drawn game. Second replays, if required, then played on following Monday and third replays if needed, on the Thursday of the same week. Replay dates were changed in 1970's or 1980's due to the police insisting on ten days to organise themselves! Parker is simply getting his reasons for defeat before the match.
  7. All Lives Matter! And that includes every animal, vegetation, tree and anything else that is born and finally dies.
  8. He did OK. Do we know how to use him? We didn't involve him enough in our attacks, IMO. But needs to be more aware of his defensive responsibility.
  9. The type of player that we could do with now - a leader who led by example and a very good footballer. Thanks Bobby.
  10. @Davefevs Hit nail on head above. We have a team of non leaders, a majority of whom do not want to lead, bully whatever you call it. Even Kalas, our captain, is not a leader. Today he just played his own game because alongside were Mariappa and Mawson to do the organising. He looked far better and comfortable than the last four months. In the rest of the field, we have a collection of individuals, not a team at all. You are correct about Bakinson and Nagy doing their own thing. The seniority should sit with Nagy but there appears to be little contact between them. (Difficult to
