  1. They won't give us all the bad news in one lump.
  2. I wonder if we will be told what that "clear vision " actually is?
  3. You are probably right. They seem to have some dreamy eyed vision that a strong youth policy is enough to see us through. Important though that is, leaving an unbalanced squad in the hands of a rookie chief coach leaves us very vulnerable.
  4. No not really. Germany and Italy and Holland are other examples of the kit not reflecting the flag.
  5. I was told they shouted Sheeetead at him. But I don't believe it myself.
  6. True, but the residents and the hotel will create extra demand too. Do those blocks have their own parking spaces underneath I wonder?
  7. They'll comfort themselves by saying Mr Pantsdown's flashy Trashton is all very well, but they're not Special like what we are.
  8. Almost certainly. Good thing too, the store is the only part of the original stadium redevelopment that was poorly thought out.
  9. Best: Norman Hunter (a member of two world cup squads, not whilst playing for us but class is permanent) Worst: Ryan McGivern (Somehow the owner of a Man City contract!)
  10. I am happy that they are getting a bumper crowd and as far as I'm concerned they are most welcome here. It's just a badly written article.
  11. There is an article on the Bristol Bears site that claims that the crowd for their forthcoming fixture with Bath will be a stadium record for a sporting fixture at Ashton Gate. Well that's nice for them, being in those 30,000+ crowds in the 70s must have just been a dream!
  12. What they really mean is the football club wouldn't put enough money in the pot!
  13. They give him airspace to be a contrarian and a "character". He's just delivering on his contract. Ignore.
  14. That could come in handy when they finally build their new ground.
  15. Don't know what they're worried about. It's not likely that they would hear it that often.
  16. Apparently he was impressed with the training ground. Nobody had the heart to tell him he was actually looking at the stadium.
  17. They did at Eastville, which didn't do them much good because they didn't own the land. If you pay for an extension to your neighbour's house, it's his not yours!
  18. Colin Howlett. Almost forgotten about him. Forever droning on about Rovers huuuge travelling support!
