  1. I guess this is the risk of the ‘sell to balance the books and reinvest’ model. If the recruitment goes wrong, or that next pool of talent isn’t there, then you’ve spent beyond your means and the player sales aren’t there to plug those gaps anymore. So imagine we kept Bobby and Joe, at the risk of their contracts running down, sold Flint and replaced with Webster. That would have been a team ready for a real go at promotion. The club goes into the Prem and with frugal spending theres 100m in the coffers and three seasons of parachute payments. Plus you likely convince Bobby and Joe to sign
  2. Literally broke into a government building, while the entirety of the American congress was there, through the doors and windows after building a gallows outside, while armed. So yes they were rioters. If you don’t think it deserves the condemnation it’s got then I’ve got nothing for you. Ashley Babbitt broke into a federal building illegally, and got shot while trying to climb through the window of the Congressional Hall that was locked and barricaded. I’d expect that to happen in the UK if she broke into parliament let alone in a country where everyone and his dog is armed.
  3. Still waiting on this
  4. Yes the pro Brexit, anti Corbyn, pro Boris crowd are famously well up for reasoned debate. Let’s face it if someone feels strongly about a topic if they are fixed on their view point, whatever it may be, they aren’t going to change their views based on strangers on a football forum.
  5. Actually, educate us then. Link us some credible sources to these claims.
  6. Really? You honestly believe that?
  7. 20 years with a season ticket and I’ll be honest I will be picking and choosing games going forward. I’ve not missed it as much as I assumed I would. The match day experience has been stripped back to just the football now and it’s opened my eyes a bit. It’s not entertaining or exciting. None of the players on the team entertain me like a Murray, a Goater, or even a Tomlin it’s just turgid football. To add to that unfortunately I feel disengaged with the club, I don’t feel valued and after 20 years, whatever your opinion is, that’s important to me

    Enjoyment

    A mixture of things has completely killed off my enjoyment of watching football. Not being able to go to the stadium with friends and have a few beers was sht enough. Watching it through Robins TV was a novelty at first but it really strips the product back to its basics and being honest it’s become a chore. It’s boring, uninspiring, dull football. Essentially I’m locked up in my house paying a tenner for some entertainment and it now just feels like a sense of obligation rather than something to look forward to. So I’ll be honest. I’ve stopped watching. I haven’t paid for a game s
  9. Of course. But apparently we can’t convince players that the best place for them is Ashton Gate. That’s concerning, no? We keep hearing Fam loves it here and has a big smile on his face, but we can’t get him to put pen to paper. Walsh’s stock is high at the moment due to superb season last year yet unless we can convince him his development is best served here then he’s gone for nothing in the summer or a paltry sum in January
  10. Absolutely. But we didn’t and it’s still his job to negotiate contract renewals. I’m sure someone will correct me but bar Brownhill around the time of the United game, I can’t remember a new contract for someone that I was delighted/relieved with.
  11. Personally I can’t see Walsh signing a new contract with us now. The club are seemingly happy to give him and extension despite the injury (ie not like Korey who was expected to prove fitness/ability post injury - rightly so after two big ones), so the questions have to come from Walsh’s side. He’s either money oriented and wants to see what’s on the table in January for a summer free transfer, or he’s been burnt by ruddy Johnsons refusal to give him any sort of run in the team before shipping him out on loan, and wants assurances on playing time that we won’t give? Ashton is very very go
  12. Got that same rejection message 6 times now. Been trying on and off since they went on sale at 10am. Been seeing the same issue over social media too. So, I tried, I really want to watch some football but if the club can’t organise a working ticketing system after 9 months then I can’t be bothered to keep trying. Football Club of The Year apparently
  13. I’d love him to turn into a top quality player but at the moment you are right. Mariappa has to start. Moore and Vyner for me started the season at the same level, ones kicked on and one hasnt
