    I had doubts from the start. Just looking through wikipedia almost every spell ends in a fall out and bad (ish) blood.

    You can say that about nearly every single manager apart from the very top ones like Pep or Klopp or Fergie, even Jose ends up falling out but we’d all take him, name a proven manager we could realistically get who hasn’t ended jobs without getting sacked?  Won’t be many names

    You'll be hard pressed to find anyone genuinely working class in the post-punk scene at the moment, with the exception of Sleaford Mods. Nothing wrong with it mind, Joe Strummer was privately educated and grew up in middle class surroundings.

    I’ve played in the same band (now called Levi Valentino) since 1997, and I think it’s probably a rich mans game now playing in bands, the equipments expensive, the practicing is expensive, you get next to no money from gigs (in comparison to the time you spend getting there, setting up, playing, packing up) you get no money from streaming.  If you were genuinely from a poor working class background, the last thing you’d do (or be able to do) is form a band, much better going solo or doing more electronic stuff

    I`m not having that - it shows them getting eight more points. That`s crazy talk!

    True!  They have 34 points from 38 games so 0.89 ppg so 7 more points if they keep that form going, so will end with 41.  I think even increasing that ppg to 1 to end on 46 points would mean 12 points from final 8 so 4 wins, never happening with the team they have, and even if it did would 46 be enough, not sure if would although some equally terrible teams down there

    GasChat is a must Grubby. I have no qualms about making regular visits. Fantastic entertainment. Truly the gift that keeps giving!

    My fave thing on Gaschat is if they are talking about a keeper they say ‘Goalie’, don’t know why but it amuses me greatly

    There’s a similar thread in the Archive section. Sadly I suspect this sort of thing was - and might well be - rife.

    The individual of whom I was aware of as a child was a prominent figure who was involved in the local boys’ league, worked at what would now be known as South Glos leisure facilities and raised awareness of child abuse through fund raising for the League of Pity - part of the NSPCC.

    Innuendo and inference was common but it wasn’t until many years later was David Lawrence prosecuted and imprisoned.

    Yet this was a monster who appeared to be closely associated and presumably welcomed by organisations who should have known more and frankly did better.

    But I guess what better way to present yourself as a figure of respectability by working within the community and organisations who you’d assume would have the best interests of children at the forefront of everything they do.

    Those that stand up and expose these individuals for the type of people they are deserve all our respect and thanks.

    And as for that ****** on a Vespa? I hope he’s been able to live with himself.

    I played for North Bristol Colts when Dave Lawrence was the manager, I was about 11 at the time and everyone called him ‘Gay Dave’, this was early 90’s so I think it was known that he had previous, I can’t believe he was allowed to have anything to do with football.  He took my mate to watch Rovers on that moped and my mate said he drove past Twerton to a field overlooking the ground and he was there on his own with him.  Nothing happened to my mate but could have done, shocking

    The last time we visited our place of worship, unless you’ve been vaccinated there.

    I can remember thinking things were getting a bit serious and we might have to miss a couple matches. I was aware that maybe we shouldn’t do our usual handshakes with those in neighbouring seats, though that soon went out of the window.

    As I walked out after a very enjoyable game I wouldn’t have thought in a million years that one year on we hadn’t returned and won’t for at least 5 more months.

    Anyone else remember their feelings at that time?


    The Coronavirus thread on OTIB is quite an interesting read

    Possibly, but if you look at the overall benefits of the 2012 Olympics, I would say these things are worth it.

    There is an intrinsic value to hosting these events. The 2012 Olympics were unbelievable, the scenes in Hanham when the torch came through will live with me forever. 

    When I look back on my life the 2012 Olympics were and are, a source of pride and excitement, a high point that I will look back on and treasure forever.

    Sometimes you have to do something that just makes you happy.

    If you don’t, if you just count beans and attribute value that way, it’s a very unfulfilled existence.

    I was in Bordeaux airport in June 2005 when they announced who won the 2012 Olympic bid.  They happened to be showing it in the terminal on TV’s, I think France had also bid, and when they announced London as the winner you could here loads of British people cheering including me, even though at that point I wasn’t that bothered either way.  And forward to 2012 it was a great event, the opening ceremony was brilliant (I got wasted watching it which helped!), and people still talk about it now.  You cannot put a price on these moments, especially when we already have the infrastructure to run a World Cup tomorrow (COVID aside).  Hopefully FIFA being less corrupt will help our bid?

    Just heard that Glenn Roeder has died after a long battle with a brain tumour. Heartfelt condolences and prayers to his family and friends. 

    My father in law died of a brain tumour within 6 months of diagnosis and another good friend also had a ten year battle with brain tumours, horrible stuff, RIP Glenn

    Am I happy that we've got Nigel in, yes of course.

    Am I happy that we stopped the rot tonight, yes or course.

    Am I happy with the players, like **** am I.

    Dumb and Dumber picked the team against Barnsley and we lost at a whimper like the previous games!

    Dumb and Dumber picked the team tonight?

    So Nigel popped in and said hello, then they played like that, really!

    They play when they want, and the point of this rant is I feel so sorry for Dean, why couldn't they play like that for him?

    I think DH had long enough to get the players to play for him and he couldn’t do it,  I don’t believe the players downed tools for months on end, maybe the last couple of games, but DH was not up to the job

  10. Ultimately staying up is number 1, after that I want to see Nigel and the players enjoying being at the club, and hopefully this leading to a contract extension for Nigel and a very exciting period in our history.

    If there has been a decent appointment before next game I will happily wear the fool’s hat. I’m still betting it won’t be me!! 
    Mood music of long lists, short lists, interviews, discussions etc etc etc doesn’t suggest that anything’s going to happen quick. 

    Happy to be wrong!!!
