  1. Excuse me if this has already been posted.....Joe Bryan moves for circa £6m while Lloyd Kelly realises circa £13m. Seems odd to me. Both are good players, JB that bit older and more experienced. I can not figure out why there was such a discrepancy in their transfer fees. Discuss.
  2. Echo, echo: https://www.bournemouthecho.co.uk/sport/17649443.who-is-lloyd-kelly-a-closer-look-at-afc-bournemouths-new-recruit/
  3. Good statement from the club: https://www.bcfc.co.uk/news/kelly-departs-for-the-premier-league/ Wishing good luck to Lloyd.
  4. Good signing for @afcbournemouth - @BristolCity left back Lloyd Kelly joins club - £13million deal. Other clubs, including @LFC were keen. I’m delighted for Lloyd and BCFC. He joins a good club where his undoubted potential can be developed, we get a decent fee which, and this is the crucial bit....if invested well, will strengthen the squad. LJ spoke about being bold in the closed season, so let’s see how that translates. Hopefully it’s not just a pre-season friendly against the Cherries Thank you LLoyd and I look forward to Bournemouth v City in the Premiership in the near future.
  5. If this happens I will pleased for Lloyd and BCFC, as: LK has great potential and Bournemouth would be an ideal move for him City cash in and - provided they invest it well - have every opportunity to strengthen the squad overall
  6. BBC had posted that Doncaster had won on pens! Although have since corrected it....imagine seeing that and being a Charlton or Doncaster fan and not knowing the outcome!
  8. Alan Skirton has passed away, aged 80, another one of my boyhood hero’s is no more. Alan played for us 68-71, born in Bath he was a tricky fast winger. RIP Alan.
  9. They have made a swift start one up after 12 minutes
  10. On the subject of stats, today on the OS the club have posted our season in numbers: https://www.bcfc.co.uk/news/citys-201819-season-in-numbers/
  11. How about all us bored City fans get behind Forest Green Rovers (and just try to forgive the R bit of their name) in their play-off game(s)? Starting with their game away to Tranmere on Friday. Personally I’d be delighted if they get promoted.
  12. Last night and again tonight has been a superb advertisement for English football. In this era of the global game it’s so refreshing and absolutely delightful to see Liverpool and Spurs turn games around in such remarkable circumstances. Just brilliant stuff!
  13. Certainly game on now with half an hour left.
  14. As the final whistle is blown and our season ends, here are my immediate thoughts. Overall, it’s been a really positive season. We finished in eighth place with 70 points, with the possibility of a play-off place only being extinguished on the final day of the season. There have, of course, been highs and lows along the way.... Highs include: Tremendous support throughout the season Beating Sheffield United home and away Adam Webster Our away form Max’s emergence and particularly his performance at Villa The excellent unbeaten run Callum’s goal at Norwich Our discipline Finishing eighth Some of the banter on here Andi’s hat-trick at Sheffield United Ashton Gate Stadium Lows include: Our home form Korey’s season being lost to injury Just missing out on the play-offs Failing to beat Stoke at home, despite battering them in the second half Fammy being unavailable at the start of the season Not beating Derby at Ashton Gate Frank and Nicki both being injured Conceding so late against Wigan Some of the banter on here Not scoring more goals Reflecting on all of this - injuries are part of the game, so can’t really be down too much about them. Therefore, in the cold light of day, my biggest single regret is our poor home results (winning just 8 out of 23) if our home form had matched our away form (we won 11 away games) we would have been comfortably in the play-offs. So now it’s the barren closed-season with the inevitable transfer speculation and the anticipation of next season. A few things are already guaranteed next season; the miles travelled will reduce as trips to places including Norwich, Sheffield, Bolton, Ipswich and Rotherham will be replaced with Fulham, Cardiff and Luton and of course being its the Championship and Bristol City there will be a fresh set of highs, lows - and hopefully no regrets - to look forward to! See you later and have fun.
