  1. You have an interesting interpretation of the word ‘fact’. What I would suggest to you is that City’s transfer policy has been as you have described, but also had a rider, that being “In the case of unforeseen injury crises, experienced short-term cover should be signed as soon as possible”. To suggest that City should stick to a policy of signing young players who can be developed even in a short-term crisis is, if you’ll forgive me, rather ridiculous.

  2. Famous Blue Raincoat ... Leonard Cohen
  3. Are you sure about that? I know a bit about what went on when Scott and particularly John Laycock were in the Chair, and let’s just say that I was very pleased when Steve Lansdown bought them out....
  4. That’s a little disingenuous. Rodri and Ash were essentially short term emergency signings. Mariappa was only signed because of the injury crisis and Brunt was only a short term deal (and has gone). That only leaves Chris Martin and Nakhi Wells and my only gripe with those is that I simply don’t think Wells is good enough.
  5. ‘Obviously’? Didn’t stop Ashton talking about it though, did it?
  6. Is that the same Carl Shutt who scored all four goals in a league win for us against Fulham??
  7. It can’t have been Semenyo - “He can’t score”.
  8. Agreed. Very interesting interview. Amazed that so many people in this thread are already accusing him of lying. It seems that anything that contradicts people’s pet conspiracy theories is automatically dismissed as lies. Now where have we seen that in the last four years?
  9. I would certainly play the strongest possibly team. We know who our 5th round opponents would be and we can see a route to the quarter finals. We’re unlikely to make the playoffs or get relegated so this is an ideal season for a cup run. Let’s go for it.
  10. Well of course it is. He is a shrewd businessman and therefore he isn’t going to simply burn money, but given that, it strikes me as though he is looking to achieve two aims, to make good investments that will enable his money to grow in the future, and also to further the interests of sport in Bristol and Bristol City FC in particular. Anyone who has ever met and talked to Steve Lansdown will know that he loves the game and he loves Bristol City. The notion that he is only in it for the money is ridiculous and insulting.
  11. Just wondered whether if you were a Liverpool supporter you would be calling for Klopp to be sacked this morning?
  12. Erm, have you noticed that the first four I mentioned are all injured?
  13. We don’t lack pace with Weimann, Paterson, O’Dowda and Dasilva in the squad. Semenyo ain’t slow, and nor are the Edwards brothers, and even Jack Hunt is quick. With a fully fit squad we have a lot of pace.
