  1. 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.
  2. Countryfile


    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.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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?
  6. 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.
  7. Kingswood isn’t in Bristol either, so why the Gas opened a Club shop outside Bristol Is beyond me.
  8. Just stuck in my mind, unlike everything else I should remember
  9. Were you by any chance on crutches at the time? I seem to remember a lad being ejected for waving his crutches in the air, probably near the end of the game thinking about it.
  10. You can see an estimate for future bills (3months?) on line to check what they intend to charge you.
  11. Steve is a good man...for Bristol sport, but he’s also a business man. For some perspective I understand one player is on £35K per week...basic 100 zero hours staff earning £50 a game = £5,000, 1 days pay for that person. I believe Mr Ashton (not the fire alarm one) is paid £500,000 per year, £9,600 per week. I don’t begrudge those two their money, I’m sure they earn it, however if there were no zero hours staff there would be no game.
  12. This. I would suggest a prompt apology from the club, and a promise to do it correctly at the last home game against Preston, which will be the last regular game of the 125th Anniversary season. Could be a lot riding on that game and a possible full house, just the time for the powers that be to show they can actually do something right, I won’t however be holding my breath waiting for that to happen.
  13. Quite unbelievable that this could have been so disorganised. Who ever was responsible for this shambles should be banned form AG. Still I expect they sold a few more poorly made shirts.
  14. Interesting work Dave, but not as interesting as the stat just given in the Leeds game. Leeds have scored first away from home on 19 occasions, and won all 19. That is some record.
  15. Like you I have been in a similar situation, and I would agree it’s down to the individual to perform. However if the leadership is lacking the drive, cohesion or ability to take things forward and the employees sense this it’s bound to have a detrimental effect on performance. I know my performance suffered, there does come a point where you think ‘this is not right’ and as an individual you need to make a decision wether to go along with things or get out (I chose to leave).
