  1. I’m not. I don’t know who those clubs would be but as I’ve said elsewhere the table does lie. We aren’t good enough to go up, or compete with others who are. Our league position masks where we really are. As does a few winning streaks and “success” in recent seasons. We can all get hard ons when we beat Man Utd and take Man City close. We get even harder when we buy cheap and sell on and make a profit on players. We might even get harder still when we take our seats and gaze in awe at the stadium we now enjoy. Thing is the Emperors are naked. They aren’t wearing clothes. They’re stark bollock naked. Every one of them. But strap yourself in. As long as The Messiah and “his men” surround him this is as good as it gets. Is it better than it’s been in recent years? Possibly. Could it have been better? Too ******* right it could have been.
  2. Christ. I’m worried.... I agree with everything you’ve said We were poor at Leeds and we were poor today. In fact we’ve been poor all season. Our league position has flattered us for too long. As did our Carabao cup run. Under Lansdown, Ashton and Johnson this will be as good as it gets. Papered over cracks, mediocrity football. Time to arrange some talking therapy I think. Under these clowns we’re going nowhere. Fast.
  3. Spot on. We were very lucky to be only one down. We kept looking at the clock on the screen and thinking it was only a matter of time. They came through AW and JD like a knife through butter. And made Ayling look like a world beater. And talking of dear old Luke. Did you see his face on the banner outside the shop? Luke Ayling. The face of Leeds United. Christ alive
  4. Sorry. Don’t agree. I think with us it’s more to do with a lack of confidence or ability. Opposition and conditions might have some impact but to the extent you seem to be suggesting. Fact of the matter from my old eyes is that we simply ain’t good enough. Leeds weren’t that good today. But we were more poor - what terrible grammar.....
  5. How we needed a Taylor Moore type today. Conditions were tough. What did we have? A very lightweight midfield. Eliasson and Paterson for most of it with the introduction of O Dowda. All very lightweight and sadly ineffective and absent for most of the 90 minutes....... Massengo did ok but first touch wasn’t good enough and he didn’t demonstrate enough drive or “toughness” either. Last 15 minutes with Ashley W pushing forward and we started to look more of a threat but by then it was all over.
  6. I’d say that’s spot on. I thought it used to be Marlon that liked to go backwards when there was another option but we seem to be doing that more and more now. Noticeable today too. When we were losing and should have been pressing we weren’t. Too many times we went backwards. And I’d love to know what the instructions are when DB gets the ball and so often looks for a quick ball away. I can’t think of a time when he’s been able get the bell away. To me if he’s looking to do that then it’s not something he’s been told not to do. And yet no one I’m front of him seems to either want it or makes themselves available to receive it. I’ve come to the conclusion that our league position is flattering us. Leeds today were a different class....
  7. We were there. Poor down our left hand side. JD wasn’t good enough defensively and had little cover from Paterson/Eliasson/O Dowda for most of the game. Midfield was too lightweight for most of the game. Bentley was by far MotM. Train delayed in Leeds and connection in Sheffield looking under threat. What an afternoon...,
  8. Never mind meeting Beckham. Nick Wilson has now achieved his closet dream - being pictured in a OTIB thread See I knows Nick well. He’s been in his closet for far too long. Despite naming his boy after BRFC’s finest ever manager I’ve always suspected he’d prefer to watch his football in BS3..... So welcome Mr Wilson. You’re now one of us. Beckham who.......
  9. @JerrySLO Yes please. 2. And space for the flag...
  10. So we’ve got our tickets. Now need to get there. 2 of us from Frome. Any spare seats? Happy to chip in for petrol and meet up en route. Train seems to be £130+. Christ alive..... Suggestions welcome. Ta
  11. I did a tenner for top two finish. Less about winning or losing. All about added spice to the end of the season. Same last year and went away for last half a dozen games. Middlesbrough in the rain midweek. Christ. Boy wants to do the same. Imagine. Secured on penultimate game at Swansea....
  12. No way Mr Fevs was Fammy an 8. He might have done all you say but the thing is he didn’t score. His trademark attempted and failed bicycle kick says it all for me. He’s a trier and god loves them but to my mind he simply isn’t good enough as a centre forward. Agree about AW and with what @BobBobSuperBob has said. Again AW might not score but what he does, he does well. Overall though it was another poor performance. Wins like this whilst we’d all “take them” simply mask how poor we are. And sadly I don’t see that changing. No way Mr Fevs was Fammy an 8. He might have done all you say but the thing is he didn’t score.

  13. I have never called for his head. In fact I’ve mocked those with their painted bedsheets many times in the past. But I’m no fool. As others have said when you compare our progress with that of others we’ve at best stood still. At worst we’ve gone backwards. We all got wrapped up in drinking energy drinks and beating Man Utd and taking City so bloody close. We got excited by the prospect of Tammy and getting JD, Kalas and the bloke who can shag my wife. Christ almighty I even forked our £300 for a bloody flag for the boy from Father ******* Christmas. And yet here we are again. A draw in the FA cup against Shrewsbury. Dire performances for months before that. Week in week out we have to endure this sort of shit. And then we win away at Fulham and we go again..... Consistency. That’s all I want. With some passion and effort. And a manager or head coach who can I still that in his chosen 11. I’m afraid I don’t see LJ doing that any time soon. He’s accountable for this mess. And SL is ultimately accountable for that. And as for no more sheep pies.......
  14. Absolutely spot on. Join one of the few who have been saying this for years. Be lambasted for daring to think it let alone say it. Buck stops at the top. Lansdown has done a lot for Bristol Sport - not BCFC - but anything he’s done is driven by whatever personal motive he has for doing it. LJ was his choice. It’s Lansdown’s ball and at the moment I don’t see him taking it, or LJ away. The football and lack of real desire is up there with the worst I’ve ever seen.
  15. So Jerry introduced himself to us before the game. The now unbanned banner took pride of place - not that it did any good today - Christ Almighty... I’m sure Jerry will introduce himself to us all in time but he struck me as being a “fans’ fan” rather than a “club man”. Told us of all the years supporting BCFC and the number of consecutive home and away games he’s been to. Jerry thanks again and it was good to met you!
