  1. Big question is, if he got his big contract would his performance drop off At the moment he is in the shop window for a potential move and to encourage the best deal possible from us. So motivation is high. I would say that if he has not signed within 1 week it is clear he is running down his contract to get a great deal as a free agent. In this case better to sell for whatever we can get for him. We will not go down and we aren't going up so this is a low risk strategy. $1,5-2million instead of having him come of the bench for the rest of season looks sensible. For his salary p
  2. I wonder when we can read the "big clubs circling for Vyner" and "our business plan means we have to sell players" messages Sorry to be negative but when ever we unearth some real talent, you just know they will soon be on their way because young players see our lack of real ambition and selling our best talent is our policy.
  3. That is really interesting. I recently used the "people of colour" phrase thinking this was correct, only to be told of by a friend of my kids (who with Caribbean heritage should know) that this was insulting and I should use the term black ?? I can't keep up. I just don't understand why it is wrong to say "all lives matter"
  4. Great player, I remember him belting Gerry Gow as they were walking off at halftime because Gerry had got a bit lippy
  5. I would also question our fitness people. This season is seems that we do not have the energy to maintain a press. I have lost count of the number of times I have heard commentators comment that individuals in our team are running out of steam. If your basic level of fitness is not high enough muscle injuries increase when you play under fatigue
  6. I read this morning that Colins Middlesbrough are interested in Fam. I wonder what we should do here. In my opinion Fam is a player who realises that he has reached his best level and probably has 5-6 years of earning to set his family up for life. I know that Bristol is a nice place to live but I cannot imagine that being a sub in our current underperforming team is a particular draw to stay. As such I think there is a very good chance that he will move on at the end of this season. I guess the choice to sell or keep him for his sub goals will be decided by what we co
  7. DH will not do this Her is far too conservative and if we play well if gives him a selection question
  8. I watched the Swansea v Watford game yesterday Can only say the decision to let Corey go is right up their with the Luke Ayling decision. Corey would walk into our team at the moment
  9. Bears appoint a top coach and recognised high level signings. We get a cheap novice coach, sell our best players and replace them with bargain basement options. Summary it is cheaper to feed your ego in rugby than football and SL feels that one successful franchise is enough
  10. I think season ticket sales will force some action
  11. Could it be the other way and our fitness level is too low resulting in more orders Our inability to work an effective press when we don't have the ball and our lack of movement when we do has made me wonder is our fitness levels are a problem
  12. I just keep thinking about the atmosphere when we are ALL allowed back in So much is out of our hands at the moment but the atmosphere for the first gates open game is in ours. Keeps me going
  13. Lets face it we don't have a single player at the moment able to spot and execute a pass like Tinnion could. No wonder he is upset
  14. It is my opinion that the items I mention are fact
  15. Confidence is improved when you practice your weakness so much it becomes a strength. It becomes second nature and you can think about other things. I wonder how much the movement off the ball would improve if you got the whole squad back each afternoon to work on just this. I just wonder if we practice anything other than defence. Generally speaking in defence we look well drilled and fairly efficient. When we try to attack we look like it is a foreign concept. I am sick of seeing teams who play to their strengths in attack either with long balls and a big guy or with short passing
