  1. Paul Tisdale has been spotted at the Avon Gorge hotel. unfortunately for him, it’s closed.
  2. You may have conditioned yourself to forget, so I apologise if I bring back painful memories. Do you remember the Russell Osman era. Utter tedium. However, I was younger then, so was more able to cope with disappointment. I’ve been ground down in the years since.
  3. I have to admit to being a “recovering City fan”. I decided not to renew my ST 2 seasons ago, due to the lack of entertainment under LJ. It was boring and tedious, so much so that I used to get headaches watching the games. I decided to spend my Saturdays with other friends and family and haven’t looked back. Obviously I’m still on here writing about City, but you don’t get rid of the bug completely. What I’m trying to say is that I what tried 2 years ago is now being forced onto the rest of the fan base. I prefer it now, even though I still keep an eye out. I suspect that many othe
  4. As I see it, the business model risks the post COVID recovery. As others have mentioned, it’s about the social side, sometimes more so than the game. Now that both have been taken away, many will be tempted to go to the pub to see friends, once we can do that again. It’s cheaper and more convenient for most. The main thing that would persuade people to come back the AG is if they saw the club playing attractive, expansive, free flowing (etc etc) football on TV. As it stands, I think many will quite rightly prefer Saturdays on their sofa with a few cans, than going out to watch 90 mins of
  5. I tried to follow the club on MySpace, but they don’t have an account. They’re not really trying are they? Not even a page on Friends Reunited. Sheesh...
  6. For someone who doesn’t have an interest in sport, I’d say that Rovers would be the ideal fit for Hargreaves. As far as Bristol United is concerned, why would you merge with a weaker club to make a club that’s weaker/worse than City? I can understand Rovers supporters suggesting this, but City supporters? That would be deliberately sabotaging your own club. I don’t understand why this makes sense in an way whatsoever.
  7. The other question is whether the OP meant to say “deluded” or “delusional”. If people are deluded, they have been tricked, which implies that a third party has intentionally tricked them. This would probably be the club. I suspect she/he means “delusional”. Ahem...
  8. “The reality is...”. There isn’t a single reality, it’s the reality from their point of view.
  9. Some may think it’s a con-tench-ious appointment, but it’s a big oppor-tuna-ty. He’s the sole survivor of the previous team, he must feel as though he’s between a rock and a hard plaice. It started of as a fish-ous rumour, but hopefully he turns out to be krill. We may be a small fish in a big bowl, but Carp e diem Dean, carp e diem... (seize the cray)
  10. Hopefully his and LJ’s management styles aren’t I-tentacle. I’ll get my coat.
  11. I don't look upon this like it's the end, I look upon it like it's moving on you know. It's almost like my work here's done. I can't imagine Jesus going 'Oh, I've told a few people in Bethlehem I'm the son of Gary, can I just stay here with Mum and Dad now?' No. You gotta move on. You gotta spread the word. You gotta go to Nazareth, please. And that's, very much like... me. My world does not end within these four walls, Bristol’s a big place. And when I've finished with Bristol, there's Reading, Oxford, Swindon, you know I've got to Exeter, You know. My Plymouth, Cardiff. Because I am my own b
  12. Let’s hope he can raise the squad to a higher level.
  13. Trust, encouragement, loyalty, reward, satisfaction. At least 3 of those are important to both LJ and DB.
