  1. Hasn’t had too bad a career: 250 or so games in the lower divisions, and presently at Ipswich. No one has mentioned Cole Skuse as perhaps our most successful academy product of the last twenty years.
  2. But he wasn’t brought through as a striker. Who was the last genuine centre forward we brought through the ranks? Dominic Barclay, and look how he turned out?
  3. Have we really not produced a decent homegrown striker for nearly 50 years?? Kayode Odejayi has had a decent career in the lower divisions I suppose...
  4. A Matter of Life & Death Some Like It Hot The Godfather (any part, even three!) Fatal Attraction Never could understand the acclaim accorded to Shawshank... Respect to Swanker for a great list above.

  6. Someone tell me why we didn’t sign James Tavernier...
  7. Really interesting post. The question of why Bristol had underachieved at sport for over 100 years is fascinating, and I’m no nearer to knowing the answer. They used to say that more people played sport in Bristol, hence fewer supporters putting money into the club; or that it is a commercial city with no substantial grassroots for sport. I think geography might come into it. Bristol is slightly isolated and maybe we’ve been seen as an outlier for decades, whereas the likes of Leicester are part of a hub of football clubs.

  10. There’s more to life than CVs. The awkward fact for me is that earlier in the season, when Holden was in charge and the injury crisis was at its peak, we were playing better than we are now and occasionally producing some decent results. When things started going seriously wrong, the blame was put entirely on Holden and the coaches, and the players were absolved from all responsibility. Every single mistake a player made was put down to poor coaching. Now the tables have turned and the players are held entirely responsible for our current abysmal form. While I certainly don’t absolve the
  11. Tommy has been a hero at times this season. Totally unfair to condemn him after one mistake. Not even the worst mistake in the match - that goes to the Coventry player who put Nakhi Wells through.
  12. I don’t buy that - well not entirely anyway. This squad is better than the performance we saw today, and has shown itself capable of some decent results. That squad, playing to the best of their abilities, should be capable of better. Something is very wrong, and you cannot put it down simply to the quality of the players. How many internationals did we have on show today?
