  1. If all fails, backup followed by factory reset
  2. @BigTone I lost my father to cancer a few years back and I feel for you. In this difficult time, I wish I had the words to bring comfort. Alas, I don't do flowers and soft things, so hopefully someone else words might do the job: In your thoughts we will touch. In your dreams we will meet. Now our hearts beat as one. I am your shadow. I'll always be close. Hear my voice in the wind. See our dance in a song. Feel my warmth in the sun. Remember, my love, I'll always be close. Do not weep for my loss. Time will pass... Pain will fade... You will laugh, and
  3. You supplied information I was to read and learn from as I was clearly stupid in your eyes. I really really tried to see 2013 in the factual information you supplied, but as much as I tried, it simply wasn't there. Damn those inconsistencies. It turns out I should be consulting the musings of @Harry, who in turn indicates that MA was't here in 2013 after all. You guys need to get together and start singing from the same hymn sheet. These emails tend to show (redaction is in place) emails received from the club. Hardly proof of involvement e.g. I could send
  4. I think you need to tell everyone what you think the 'chief operating officer role' entails? Along with a description of what 'day to day football operations' means to you. This goes to @CodeRed and @Harry as well. It's an opportunity for you guys to help others to understand, what appears to be, a bad trip on a conspiracy pill.
  5. You cut and pasted this: https://www.bcfc.co.uk/news/bristol-city-appoint-mark-ashton-as-chief-operating-officer/ You seemed to want to use it as proof of my stupidity of not knowing that MA was there is 2013. I simply responded that you point out where 2013 is mentioned in that piece. Instead of putting me right in your own words and showing me where 2013 is mentioned on this webpage, you stand up @Harry as proof of 2013. This tends to indicate that you can't answer things for yourself. Does this help you to keep up?
  6. The little distortions that you've introduced: You said: '... he controls all day to day football matters. Which makes him the employee with most power' What was actually announced was: 'Ashton assumes control of all day-to-day football operations...' You distorted the announcement so things aren't as 'unequivocal' as you claim, but actually subtle changes that then allow you to create some illusion of an all mighty Mark Ashton mwah ha ha. I think the old sock has a typo by the way.
  7. There are plenty of people on otib who claim to be in the know. And when pushed further for 'proof', the general response is 'trust me' or 'I've been right in the past', and believing that is enough 'proof' (conveniently skipping over the inconvenient truths of when they've been wrong). This is the typical MO of a tabloid journalist and I don't trust them as far as I could throw them. I don't know @Harry. He might be a nice fella who has genuine first hand knowledge of City or he could be some anonymous WUM who knows how to push the buttons of angry people who will hang on his every word
  8. You provided a verifiable post and when put on the spot, instead of answering for yourself, you ask me to start chasing another posters delusion to prove your point. Have you thought about answering for yourself?
  9. At least CR made an attempt to bring some verifiable facts to his argument and failed when it was put under scrutiny. When someone starts introducing the words 'fact', 'propoganda', 'I know' etc., any reader who cares to pause and think what is being said can get the salt grinder out. As to the personal involvement with people, it all points to someone who has a personal axe to grind rather than someone who is taking a unemotional, clear eyed approach to our current situation. But hey ho, do keep it up.
  10. BT, you are right, you can't argue with facts. Look at the dates i.e. 2014 and the word 'temporary'. The cut and paste nicely provided by numpty bollocks (I can engage in name calling too) indicates he was here temporarily on a consultancy basis early 2014, left to Join Oxford in 2014, and then returned 2016. Nothing else, other than normal press release announcements. Others are trying to extend this to 2013 (and maybe trying to indicate other times as well). Just why would they want to do that?
  11. Now now, no need for name calling. As to your point... Consultancy is not control, it is bringing expertise to the table with a view of helping to improve things. By the looks of it, his expertise (this is the purpose of consultancy) was talent identification and recruitment. It appears that he stopped being a consultant in 2014 (it was temporary, as you've kindly highlighted) and returned for the 'full time' position in 2016 as the chief operating officer. So, he had nothing to do with the club from 2014-16. It is not clear if the 'talent identification and recruitment' was just pla
  12. Is Trump influencing your thinking? Has the Illuminati taken hold of City? Is Ike a 'consultant' to the conspiracies that regularly frequent otib? Just at what time is your ability to think suspended, just to create some theory that supports your beliefs?
  13. Monty Python springs to mind and 'When I were a lad...' I suspect there are people who have different recollections to 82 and they wouldn't be paintng rosy pictures or have strings in their pants like some do. My view, our biggest problem at the moment is the injury list. This isn't anyones fault. As a consequence, the football is dire at the moment and that is patently obvious. Now on to some of the plain old BS I'm seeing on this post. I suspect DH got the job because he is a 'known', he must have had an interview and a half (I'd like some pointers DH as I've just been
