  1. If they want to go, let em. A common phrase in football is nobody is bigger than the club, well nobody is bigger than English football as a whole. Let them go play in a European Super League and price their fans out of away games. Arsenal, Spurs and currently United will find themselves currently unable to challenge near the top, maybe some even find themselves near the bottom of that sort of league, something they have not been used to for decades, some not at all.
  2. The guy is an idiot. Bought Sancho from Watford for circa 500k and sold him for 8m. A hefty profit for someone who they weren’t willing to give a chance to in the Prem. Now he’s worth 70m+ it’s all ‘poor little Man City’. They are not a club that develops players, they would much rather buy established players from abroad. Chelsea are the same. Hoover up talent from all over the country and then sell them on at a profit without giving them a chance (and before people start pointing out Tammy Mount James are getting games, the only reason they got a chance last season is Chelsea’s transfe
  3. I think given the small numbers it would be very easy to identify those not adhering to the rules that would be a condition of entry. Politely give them the option of masking up or ask them to leave. Then blacklist them for further reduced attendance games if they don’t want to get on board.
  4. Absolutely. I’d completely expect to have to wear a mask during the game as a condition of entry. And I’d accept that to be able to watch a game. My main point is that a stadium is infinitely more ventilated than an indoor cinema yet I can watch football in one but not another. So 1000 people at AG, less than 5% capacity, is worth a minimum of 16k to the club (£16 refund for a South Stand ticket). 16k x 20 odd remaining home games = £320k. That’s not a small chunk of change for a very very small amount of people in the ground. It’s madness how that can’t be allowed. If they
  5. Absolute madness. So I can go to the pub. Have a few beer with my mates. Then go to the cinema, indoors, and watch the football with another couple of beers, assuming plenty of shouting when goals go in, but I can’t go watch it in a stadium, outside, with even 1000 other people in a 26000 seater stadium. But I bet you if some of Boris’ rich mates owned football clubs we’d all be back there by now
  6. Only once though in a one off special game. It’s nice that they’re will do that but still isn’t a proper 3rd kit imo
  7. Shame it’s not a genuine third kit that might get worn a few times. Feels like more of a special edition so would have been nice seeing at a lower price, £30 maybe, even if just for the people who made the donation
  8. Remember going to Hillsborough on the back of a long winning run under Wilson, getting close to a record. Took loads up that day. Lost 1-0 late on. Of course.

    I agree with the exception of Paterson. He’s a game changer (same could be said about Palmer but Pato more consistently has an effect on a game than Palmer) and I would keep.
  10. It’s ridiculous there has to be some way now to get a small % of people into stadiums. I’m sure clubs don’t care if it’s 500 people at this point, that’s 500 refunds they don’t have to give. Be as militant as you like about the rules, masks during games, 5 seats between people, allocated entry/exit points, but start drip feeding people in. If I can go to a pub, cinema, restaurant indoors with 2m distancing then football should be less of a risk.
  11. Jesus, Brownhill shot from just about everywhere, including somehow ending up our free kick taker despite regularly smashing them into the South Stand/Atyeo. Yes he scored a couple, and a couple of long range beauties but don’t make out like Johnson had a leash on his shooting from distance because it’s absolute garbage.
  12. I thought he spoke fantastically well on the OSIB podcast episode and I think he does come over well sometimes. He’s more of a fan than a businessman as I bet he would say himself. But he has to start somewhere and he’s only going to get experience by getting grilled by Twentyman and the like.
  13. Completely agree. It’s not like we’ve got umpteen trophies to display. Was a pipe dream.
  14. Maybe the shop could be turned into the museum we we promised!
  15. Just read his interview from yesterday press conference in the Bristol Post and for a young lad who hasn’t exactly been given too much of a shot here, he seems to bloody love the club. Great to see. He’s been sent out on loan four times in four years, took a pay cut to show willing when signing a new contract, asked to be made captain for the cup game and now saying he sees his long term future here as a captain. I don’t remember him saying a bad word about us, even when LJ threw him under the bus a couple of times, then chose to send him out on loan and sign Benkovic/play Williams
