  1. Reading the comments on here this evening it would appear that the arabs have finally realised that they have enough sand, and Mr Ashton can go and do one.
  2. Only City could completely **** something so simple. If we think it’s messy at the moment, it’s going to be a bloody car crash when things start to go badly.
  3. Perhaps they've got it all sorted and everyone's decided to go off on holiday before anything gets announced. Clutching at straws somewhat
  4. City not out of the blocks fast enough. No urgency, no passion or desire resulting in no points. Dreadful
  5. Guessing you’re not an accountant, but you’re suggesting the club should’ve had pandemic insurance. Whereas Steve Lansdown is an accountant and didn’t take it out. Perhaps you should’ve been the accountant or perhaps you’re just blessed with 20/20 hindsight. Although he’s a billionaire and I’m guessing you’re not. I’m sure the club will come up with something that will try to meet the needs and expectations of the majority, although there’s always going to be those who will find something to complain about. My only advice would be to try not to marry one them
  6. I think you’re right with most of what you said. It’s a crap situation and there’s no perfect way of getting out of this without someone paying for something. I understand your stance that it’s not going to be you who pays. I understand the players saying they have a contract that says they should be paid (although I’m not impressed at all that there’s been no other gesture on behalf of the players besides agreeing to receive the money a couple of months late) I do understand that you feel sense of entitlement that as a customer you have rights to get exact what you pay for irrespective o
  7. Think we all accept that the players wages need to be paid, and Steve Lansdown can’t pay for everything so the money’s going to have to come from somewhere. The government aren’t going to refund us, so it’s down to us to take this one on the chin or take one for the team. Yes we’ll be able to watch it on our screens at home, and yes it’ll be a bit crap, but in reality us all sharing equal amounts of pain is probably fair, albeit not perfect. Big shout out to the Lansdown family who will be almost definitely shouldering a disproportionate share of the costs once again. Thank you.
  8. Absolutely. I don’t like them, but I’d rather not like them, than not be able to not like them. Wouldn’t be football
  9. Although self employed, I had worked in Bristol for many years travelling in from Clevedon. The cost of actually going to work did mount up considerably with the cost of fuel, parking, clothing for work and peripherals like coffee, lunches etc would easily get close to and probably exceeded 20% of my income. As such, I would’ve been quite happy with an offer of 80% of my salary to stay at home and not to have to do any work at all. Steve undoubtedly shouldering the bill for the entire playing staff which will be eye watering sums of money, but I’d admit that I’m not impressed by th
  10. A mate of mine called them this morning, tricky getting hold of the number apparently 03442 414141 Hope you're successful
  11. Given that the government won’t call off the football, yet many footballers seem to be catching it from one another, perhaps the football authorities should just say no more football themselves, and not wait for the government to say what’s safe. Stadiums should be be shut to protect those who won’t stay away. Someone needs to take some responsibility for what could potentially happen here with this pandemic. The clubs need to look after the fans, their players and everyone employed and connected with the clubs. Football isn’t that important in the scheme of things. We can come ba
  12. With a massive stadium like that and loads of empty seats at every game, there’s massive potential for a club to be a little dodgy and to make up a load of names of phantom supporters that have bought these season tickets. The club would then show their a revenue on your balance sheet and it’ll be virtually impossible for the football financial regulators to work out if they actually exist. Meanwhile the football club can show millions of pounds worth of revenue and potentially avoid FFP penalties and points deductions. If you make up 300 names you can show £2,000,000 in revenue. When they don
  13. What a signing he was. Reckon the whole country would love him to score tonight.
  14. Slightly left field, but Benik Afobe has left the field and up to that point he made everything fit together. All these games we've been drawing recently may well have had a positive outcome. Being 5 points from second and with more draws than wins at home, the fine margins that dictate ultimate success or failure may well have been tipped in our favour with his inclusion. With 100 million pounds plus resting on the outcome I would argue for his inclusion
  15. You could start with Johnson being apoplectic after the last time it happened.
  16. I have some magic beans for sale. Something tells me you might be interested.
  17. Generally in life you won't go far wrong following the rule that If you think something's happening, it's because it is So if the club thinks Nagy's playing silly buggers with the club, cancel his contract and let some other club sign him, and they can finance him sitting on his arse. Last thing we need is the distraction of an undependable primadonna who's telling his national team bosses on thing and telling us another. We need players that turn up and put a shift in, week in week out. Thank you and **** Off
  18. Darn, some people are hard to satisfy. We got to semi finals of the last Football World Cup. That’s pretty good We currently hold the Cricket World Cup. We may win Rugby World Cup tomorrow We came second in the Olympic medal table at the last Summer Olympics. Personally pretty pleased with that.
  19. Well, everyone seems to be in agreement, which has been the case for years. So FFS start f*(king building it.
  20. Would be great, albeit the metal girder holding the stand up is already sagging in the middle.
  21. Regarding the training ground; As I drive past the site, there large fenced compound area with portacabins and the like that’s appeared over recent months, but no actual works seem to have started, albeit I’m not sure if I’d see anything anyway. Firstly. Anyone know if part of the development is to be in the field directly adjacent to the road or is it happening in the field behind the field? so to speak. Secondly. Knowing that most of us haven’t got anything better to do, any chance that the club can set up a webcam so we can watch it go up? Alternatively of course, we could alwa
  22. Great interview, loads of stuff I did didn’t know about him Really enjoyed listening to it. Thank you.
  23. Clearly United haven’t been the same since Sir Alex left, although their tail spin seemed to start with The City beating them at Ashton Gate. Until then their fans seemed to find it incredulous that such events could happen. Now they don’t. That was a good night
