  1. Not only negative by your own admission, but bloody patronising as well. If we are honest with ourselves we will come to your conclusion that we are considerably weaker than last season. Well I for one am always honest with myself (what’s the point of being otherwise), have taken a considered view of the transfer window and concluded that we are not weaker.

    We can sum this season up in one word

    What a load of tosh! We may or may not finish in mid table but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring or mediocre. The season could be one of exciting football, high scoring matches, and nail biting finishes. I disagree that we’re weaker but time will tell which of us is right. A finish above 11th says we’re not. and the point is to support your team through Hell and high water. If you don’t want to bother go and glory hunt down the Bridge, or if your interested in a relegation battle go watch the Palace.

    Jay Dasilva Signed - NOW CONFIRMED

    Similar to last season then or maybe not. Not sure that either Joe Bryan or Hörður Magnússon could be called ‘specialist’ left backs. Or for that matter Kelly who, while being closest to the description may find his long term future lies at centre back. Who’s the second youth after Cameron Pring? Can’t be Kelly, he’s in the senior squad.

    Joe Bryan - Signed for Fulham CONFIRMED

    As Joe looks set to sign for Fulham now, disappointment at selling to a Championship club is moot. However, while supporters of all clubs would not generally wish to sell to their rivals intra-division sales are commonplace. We achieved promotion from league one by buying the best league one players available, and so far this window we have bought 4 players from Championship clubs. After all, if you want players with proven championship experience, they are usually found in the Championship. It should come as no surprise then that other championship teams share the same philosophy.

    Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    I understand that someone at GL Events has misplaced the spanner from the Meccano set.

    Tricky Trees , where did that come from ?

    Old school Irons you mean. No self respecting West Ham supporter ever refers to his team as the Hammers. You have the media and Johnny Speight, creator of Alf Garnett, to blame for that.

    It’s the media that are always coming up with new nicknames. Manchester City’s original nickname was the Citizens. Likewise Crystal Palace are the Glaziers not the Eagles, Chelsea the Pensioners not the Blues, Aston Villa the Villains not the Lions, Leeds the Peacocks not the Whites, and especially West Ham the Irons not the bloody Hammers, which was the nickname of the old West Ham speedway team. There are plenty more changed over the years. Perhaps we should have a be one, any suggestions.

    How long does LJ have?

    6 more seasons yet. It took Alan Dicks 9 seasons to take us to the promised land.

    I need to see more of Maenpaa before making a judgement. His kicking looks to be better than Frankie’s but I don’t know yet if he is a better shot stopper. He made one good save in the second half but it was at a good height for a keeper and I would have been disappointed if he hadn’t kept it out. We don’t know anything yet about his ability to cope in one on one situations, where Frankie excels.

    RIP “Twitcher”, a real honest professional footballer.

    Niki Mäenpää - Now Officially Signed (Merged)

    Hardly surprising. OTIB has more than its fair share of Statler and Waldorf’s.

    Is it a contractual requirement?

    Followed by Lilli Marlene ”underneath the lampard by the barrack Gate”

    Top (bottom) 3 signings!

    Gus Caesar. Thought he was overrated when he played for Arsenal, but by the time he came to us he was really crap. Julian Watts. Substitute Leicester for Arsenal above. Greg Goodridge. Controversial but I never rated him. Had I been a kid at the time I could have made a fortune by standing in the Winterstoke Road car park and selling footballs that flew over the East End from his crosses. There are many others but honourable mentions must go to Nicky Hunt, Michael Bridges and John Akinde.

    It’s typical of today’s modern football journalism. I took issue with Gregor McGregor still referring to LJ as the ex Oldham and Barnsley manager. As a journalist I would have thought he could have been more creative by now. Just as well Cotterill’s not still here. Column inches would certainly be taken up by the ex Sligo Rovers, Cheltenham Town, Stoke City, Burnley, Notts County, Portsmouth and Nottingham Forest manager.
