    Just wrong

    Think Fam was there, um, clearing his throat. Watkins must have slipped on it.

    Rumours gone quiet

    Have you twirled it around above your head, as prescribed by Bristol Sport? Or were you arrested before it got that far?

    Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    My aunt used to have a dog called Rover. Maybe they handed back all the canines that had disappeared from the streets adjacent the Nou Tent?

    Have that then you LJ haters !!

    "Humble".........defined as unassertive, submissive, meek. Any of that ring a bell with our recent performances? This our game plan for Saturday and, maybe, the rest of the season? Be grateful for the odd own goal cos there might not be much else. Well, maybe another winger! Uriah Heep. Ever so 'umble.

    Radio Bristol Interview

    I'm Lee Johnson, I say what I want. None of this will wash if we lose at Ipswich so he'd better have a script that says simply "Sorry, goodbye"

    Anybody else feeling better..?

    Worked on the areas they did wrong. Does this mean they're not happy with that level so they'll make sure it's even more wrong next time? Maybe so wrong that it'll actually be right? A coaching theory that LJ has just stumbled upon? When all else fails etc.

    Tough for refs over there, mind. All that loose canvas flapping around. "Is that me lino flagging, or is it that b tent come loose again?"

    Leeds fan in peace 2

    Continuing the Reggie Perrin & CJ theme (apologies if someone has already done this) but.......LJ didn't get where he is today by being an absolutely outstanding manager in the lower leagues. So I've been told, anyway.

    Our boss loves a player with a song. Pugh, Pugh, Barney McGrew will no doubt start, with their mates on the bench.
  10. Think the problem is that LJ sets it all up very nicely on the training ground. All set to go on Tuesday night or Saturday but then along comes the dreadful inconvenience of an opposing team/manager that may not let us play & (eventually) score the perfect goal. Well, sometimes an opponent will but maybe less often these days. Textbook stuff, innit? Some of it should stay there, too, and if anyone else says he's still learning..........I shall boo!

    European Super League

    It won't be a pyramid because the whole point is the big clubs grabbing more money from playing each other. They'll take the league to the Far East for a couple of rounds, North America a couple more. Would playing N European clubs put more bums on seats at AG than City v Leeds, for example? Unlikely IMO. Would French & Belgian clubs bring many fans or would we trot off over there? I suspect that in a couple of years it'll be Lampard's Chelsea taking part & Derby will have nicked LJ from us.

    Will football eat itself ?

    Laugh, off the original topic a bit Major but Downs League football early 1970s. Older chap always in the dressing room pre-match. The Chairman or some such position. Always ready to rub in the horse liniment to keep the cold out even on a very warm early season Aug/Sept Saturday. All very obvious & some of us even let him massage a calf muscle just for a laugh as he claimed to know all about muscles, ahem. Drew the line at thighs, though. No internet chat room to lurk anonymously in just a cold dressing room full of blokes effing, blinding & winding each other up.......and him.

    Will football eat itself ?

    I first watched City getting on for 60 years ago. I don't feel as connected to them these days but that's more a general disenchantment with football & the hype about it, especially the Prem. I never watch MOTD & will only take an interest in the Prem if City get there. So, maybe never. What I wonder is how a Chelsea or Arsenal fan who has followed them for 50-60 years feels about watching a team that may start with no English/British player on the field or maybe only one. Still their beloved Blues or Reds but without the likes of Chopper Harris, Osgood or Charlie George, Frank McLintock. Do they feel a real connection to their current players or do they pretend to whilst longing for the old days?

    bet no one got one of these from Reading last season

    Heard the Gas are handing out similar leaflets with # TentiesPlenty Yes, I have already got me coat

    Well done Bristol City

    Imagine Bloke in the Gas Ticket Office. Sits there all day, no one phones. He'd love the chance to even make a mistake. Mind you if he sold a ticket it would be to a Ted for the Away Tent.
