  1. Sorry misread the 5-6, nevertheless an easy commute when he needs too.
  2. They don’t train every day, and certainly not for 5-6 hours. can probably afford a driver at £120 a day for 8 hrs.
  3. Definitely this. when you suffer the kind of heartache he and his family have then family must come first. However he did apply, and presumably JM didn’t, and he will have seen the commitment LJ put into the job first hand. Sometimes you need to be careful what you wish for, I hope he doesn’t take the job for his and his family’s sake.
  4. “If the former club does not offer the player a contract, no training compensation is payable unless the former club can justify that it is entitled to such compensation. The former club must offer the player a contract in writing via registered post at least 60 days before the expiry of his current contract. Such an offer shall furthermore be at least of an equivalent value to his current contract. This provision is without prejudice to the right to training and compensation of the player’s previous club(s)” Failure to meet those requirements will not affect a right to compensation for a
  5. Well maybe this is the problem. You think the main aim is sustainability, I think promotion should be the main aim, from which sustainability can be achieved and maintained. If for instance we had told Brownhill that he could leave at the end of the season if we didn’t achieve promotion, do you think we might now be in the play offs at least? I genuinely don’t think he would have thrown his toys out of the pram with that promise In place and we would have a better chance of achieving my main aim.
  6. Exactly, they could have been offered deals worth 50% less than they are getting now. It’s all about the compo.
  7. A change to the set Up is required, it’s failed miserably to achieve its aim (if promotion is the aim). Just seven weeks until the season starts, loan players gone back, OOC players have left, a lot of work to do to get a squad together to challenge from day one and the CEO and owner have wasted time on pursuing a manager who was never going to leave his current club for us. If there are seriously eight potential managers / coaches to be considered I’d love to know their names.
  8. Listened to some football reporters this morning on sky saying how it was interesting listening to the shouts from the dugout at various games, they were surprised that most of it you can hear at any parks games most weekends, not particularly scientific or out of the ordinary, and therein is our problem, over coaching, over thinking, and over complicating what is a simple game, and being surprised when the players seem confused.

    With everything that has gone on today to play Afobe wide left has to be the ultimate example of LJ’s poor management. SL must remove him.
  10. Neither can I. Completely agree about DaSilva as an attacking threat, three CBs would mean leaving COD and or Elliason out, we set up, not for the first time, to keep a clean sheet and try and snatch a goal, which in fairness we did, then forgot to keep it tight, and could have let five in by the end, while millions of pounds worth of attacking talent which could and should have been used from the start were only bit part players. We may still turn this around, but I’m not betting on it, and while I applaud the progress LJ has made I think SL needs to bite the bullet and recruit someone w
  11. I’m not, all managers set up to nullify the oppositions threats, the best managers also set up to pose a greater threat to the opposition, and put that at the forefront of the teams tactics. We don’t.
  12. Nagy? I’ll keep that one to myself - LJ. Could be a positive Covid, why else would LJ say that except for patient confidentiality? Or am I misreading the situation?
  13. Caught a ferry from Greece to Italy, booked deck accommodation, spread out my sleeping bag on the floor of the ‘lounge’ and got myself comfortable, called into Corfu to discharge/pick up passengers, watched proceedings from the deck and then we left port, went back to my berth to find a lad in a City shirt had set up next to me.....with a litre bottle of Ouzo at the ready.
  14. Kingswood isn’t in Bristol either, so why the Gas opened a Club shop outside Bristol Is beyond me.
  15. Just stuck in my mind, unlike everything else I should remember
