  1. Maybe Villa going up will trigger one of the add-ons in the Kodjia deal. If so I want them to go up as it benefits us. If not I don't give a flying **** which team goes up. There are valid reasons to dislike all of them.
  2. According to Forbes SL is worth $2.6 which is nearer £2bn. Just another guesstimate. https://www.forbes.com/profile/stephen-lansdown/
  3. Will the Champions League final be on BT Sport only or is it one of those that has to be on free tv? I should be able to remember from last season but am clearly getting senile....
  4. From the bit I heard of SL on the radio pre-match he seemed to say there was no intention to change the strategy. You can interpret that different ways but it didn't sound like they are about to start a new phase, or make some kind of significant splurge on new players. I'm sure people will say it is better to do it all in secrecy. I just don't get the impression that SL plays games like that though.
  5. That'd how I started off. 10gb sounds plenty but if you torrent a lot it soon runs out. I just wanted the convenience and for a year it's worth it imho.
  6. Maybe the EFL read OTIB and saw my post? Is it just me btw who can't insert smileys any more. If I click on the smiley icon on my phone it just locks up. Smileys eventually appear but can't select one or get any further from there. Only option is closing the window and starting again.
  7. Rather than make Brentford play them after Sunday, why not award the points to Brentford. It's a meaningless match and Bolton have been unable to field a side before the end of the season. Seems unfair to the Brentford fans to make them play next week.
  8. Remind me. How much did Norwich spend on 'Championship Player of the Season' Pukki? Oh yes - free transfer. It's more about having good scouts and having a style of play plus knowing what players will work in that style imo. Not sure we could spot a Pukki and I don't know what LJ's plan is and I don't think he does either. I suspect that's partly why half the signings don't work out. He signs loads of wingers then plays with wing backs being just one example.
  9. My request is to score three goals in the first 18 minutes. Might just explain a good atmosphere more than the music played or whether an extra pint is consumed before taking your seat.
  10. If only it was live on sky. We seem to turn up more often than not when the spotlight is on at AG.
  11. All this talk of Pack being tired baffles me. It's Monday. He doesn't play again now until Saturday. If a professional sportsman in his prime can't play two games in 5 days there is something seriously wrong.
  12. SL is clearly of the opinion that clubs should stay within the FFP rules. The extent to which we can spend this summer will presumably depend on how much room there is within the FFP limits. While we sold big last summer I'm not clear whether the full amount from those sales are accounted in that year. Given that payments are usually in instalments, do they appear in our accounts as and when the payments are made? I guess if the full amounts are counted in the year we sold there should be scope to spend a reasonable chunk in the summer.
  13. Try talking to a Fulham fan WW - that might give you some perspective. All clubs have good and bad signings. For the amount spent we have done well to be pushing for the play offs. Fulham spent over £100m in the summer and arguably made their team worse.
  14. So you reckon we could bring in a new player, put him on £45k/week and the rest of the squad would all nod happily and go along with it? That, imo, would be a bit of a recipe for disaster. Team spirit out the window on day one. It ain't that simple although I get the idea.
  15. Hoping to see Korey Smith back today as I think he makes a huge difference. Will be interesting to see what formation LJ goes with. Weimann needs to be up front not out wide imo. Not sure how we'll set up so I doubt Reading are either, which can't be bad.
  16. I expect SL wants to maximise sales so gave it a thumbs down.
  17. Imo it peaked at Season 4. Up until then it is driven by the characters and the actual books. Since they got beyond the books it has become a bit more of an action-fest. More focus on dragons and the army of the dead. While I still love watching it that is mainly because of being invested in the characters developed in those earlier series for me.
  18. LJ did say they won the game in the first 20 mins of the second half. Which was about right. First half was pretty even although I thought we looked the more likely. I think the penalty and all the biased yellow cards changed the game. Fouls by City players seemed an automatic yellow while Villa's just got waved on. Anyone who couldn't see that ref changed the game needs to take a good look at themselves. Once booked a player has to hold back in the tackle and half our team got booked.

    Thought Palmer did even less than Taylor when he came on. Would rather Semenyo got a chance from the bench.
  20. Talking of grey AG ...I wonder if there are any plans to re-paint the underside of the Dolman roof which is decidely off-white. Not sure it was ever done as part of the re-fit. Maybe while they're up there fixing the PA system?
  21. Turns out there was a big black button to click on and download the app. Only problem was that it was totally invisible in Gmail on my android phone. Looking on my laptop I could see it. If I then clicked in that area of the email on my phone it took me to the link. So it was embedded in the email but totally invisible on my phone. Flaming IT eh....supporter services were very helpful though
  22. Thanks for taking time to answer. Supporter services emailed me the link. It definitely wasn't on my phone already. Just think putting that link in their confirmation email instructions is a no-brainer really.
  23. Looking for a bit of help from one of you who's a bit younger than me and more tech savvy. I have a members card so can load tickets on there. I bought one for someone who isn't and opted for a mobile ticket. In the confirmation email it says Android users who opt for a Passbook Ticket must download 'this app' before downloading from a link. That's it.....no link to the app....nothing saying exactly which app they mean. Presumably not the Bristol City app as there ain't anything in there. In Play Store there are a load of different apps for ticket wallets etc. I thought I was savvy enough to do whatever was needed but feel a right dinosaur now. Have to say the instructions in the email are somewhat unclear imo.
  24. Wish the Derby game was away rather than at 'Fortress AG'. Have a feeling that game might decide it. Unless it's a draw in which case it won't. In other words who the hell knows what could happen - this is a crazy league which is why it's so great.
