  1. Sounds like he couldn’t have worked harder for the club and for that, and all he’s done to take the club forwards, thank you. Absolutely time for a change though.
  2. Roy DeAlien has a long history on twitter of writing unsubstantiated rumours and regurgitating transfer news. (Read: Complete Bull****) He tweets about general football rumours, but often goes into more detail on Bristol City, so guessing is a City fan and certainly not ITK. Onto today - a massive one for LJ, symbolically against Cardiff and being a derby, a loss will be even harder to stomach. COYR
  3. It’s churlish IMO to not at least acknowledge the massive progress we’ve made under this current set up. But on the other hand, do we want to settle for mediocre? Because for me, that’s what we’ve become. Good runs, bad runs. Mediocre. That is what SL needs to ask himself. Of course as a stable championship club now, the gamble of a new manager may well set us back or even reverse that progress, but the increasing sense is that the right new manager is what we need to find the spark for the final push. Don’t know if this has been said already - but with a quick count, I
  4. Not sure physicality is the only solution. Talking of midfielders, off the top of my head, some of the championship recent best are hardly ‘physical’ as a key attribute: Bannan Cairney Hernandez Benrahma Phillips Bowen Knockaert Grealish Norwood To name a few... Two of our most recent top scorers, Bobby and Tammy, again, hardly all physicality. Work rate for Bobby yes, and he made the best of what he had, but not dominant physically.
  5. Agreed. Not sure if posted elsewhere but I heard our next opponents Blackburn lost 6-0 to Liverpool in their warm up....
  6. Seemed to be going through exactly the same training as Wells and Fam in the training videos on social media and looked either fully fit or very close to....
  7. The last sentence was ambiguous to me, could have been confirmed infected (you could have correct me earlier when I replied), but fine, you now mean't deaths. Either way, kind of sums up a major part of the problem for me. You casually banding around these huge figures, the number of deaths the government expect, up to 50, 000 people and still think they got their policy "spot on"? Well, i'm not really sure what to say to that, other than that is an unacceptable figure on any level and I hope to God people who make these kind of statements, or agree with them as somehow being
  8. 200 Deaths - He wrote 20,000 infected, 1% mortality rate.
  9. Personally don’t think they got it ‘spot on’ given the policy U-turn and the contradicting advice at times. But happy to agree to disagree. I guess only time will tell when the dust settles - but I’ll be astonished, and you can hopefully refer back to this and gladly tell me I was wrong, if the death toll at the end of this is only 200 in the UK.
  10. Yes who knows what the exact figures are. That % may be less than you suggest, given rough predictions that 10’s if not 100’s of thousands of people will have it, not show symptoms, or have mild ones, self isolate and therefore never be recorded as one of the statistics. Awful to think that we won’t have a true reflection of the figures, because the world’s governments weren’t able, prepared or worse willing to, test everyone.
  11. I’m no expert but I’d simply want them to learn from the countries 5/6 weeks ahead of us. We had a chance to act earlier, ahead of the curve, yet our experts and government wasted at least 2 weeks on a policy they’ve now totally u-turned on, despite being able to see what was happening elsewhere in the world. So going back to the failed ‘herd immunity’ disaster policy; the experts said they expected 60% of the country to get the virus with this method, and we know the death rate is around 1% - so basically the experts and government thought it was acceptable to sacrifice up to 400,00
  12. Yeah I read it....still think, "hope", it's a typo. It's not being reported as 2 years on any other articles i've read - if it was true I think more people would be picking up on and talking about it! That's a very long time!
  13. Surely that's a typo. 2 months? If we've gone from a 'carry on and self isolate' to a 2 year ban on all large sporting events, concerts and conferences etc that's a rather large escalation in a few days.
  14. As long as we see the Fulham ‘team’ and not the Huddersfield ‘team’, performance wise, I think we can be confident of sneaking points in a large number of those games, we’ll see. Encouraging that a few key players, Kalas and Smith, for example, finding form. I’m hoping too that being part of the chasing pack will help, pressure on Preston and Forest to fight off that pack, we’ve seen how a long season mentally and physically of being chased can add a pressure to great for some teams.
