  1. A point I had already covered with, "but sadly Leeds aren't stupid." and "There's plenty of game time between now and January to placate Arsenal." Apologies if that wasn't clear, but it meant Leeds will ensure Arsenal are happy with his development, and anything else Arsenal's little heart desires before January, so they keep him and a promotion rival doesn't get him. With regard to your "no loyalty" point, there is the Directorial Friendship between the clubs, that was meant to be beneficial in the move in the first place. Bare minimum, this should mean Leeds are exactly aware of how Arsenal feel about the current arrangement. Bearing in mind that promotion is won over a whole season, indulge me in "Let's Pretend." Tammy has just arrived on loan this season, as was. Also pretend we wouldn't be top if that were the case, we're where we are now. Remember LJ had him as sub for the first 4-6 matches, let's pretend that's still the case at this point of the season. Even if not his preferred choice, do you not think LJ would not find him more game time if it meant losing him, and him going to Leeds or other promotion rival in January? Let's face it, Tammy and Nketiah, weren't/aren't exactly weak links if you need to include them.
  2. A lovely thought, but sadly Leeds aren't stupid. They will be aware that we would probably be above them if we had Nketiah. No way would they be prepared to not only lose him, but boost the chances of a promotion rival. There's plenty of game time between now and January to placate Arsenal. The only way this would happen is if, 1. He hated it there and pushed for the move himself. 2. Arsenal were bloody minded and petty, and wanted to "Teach Leeds a Lesson." Both of the above would make far better stories if there were even the faintest hint of truth. However, just to make sure, I shall consult my psychic and get back to you if there's any more news. p.s. I will be delighted to have this thrown back in my face in January, with large helpings of insults and humble pie.
  3. Fine on https://buffstream.stream/watch-bristol-city-stream-1 and in English.
  4. Agree our position is great under the circumstances. In addition, I am very pleasantly surprised by the performances of Williams, Rowe and Hunt when we really need them. My naturally pessimistic nature, (have watched City for decades.) was concerned that the new guys would be weak links, for dire emergency use only. That pessimistic **** knows nothing. Hey. Started an argument with myself. How OITB.
  5. Assuming this to be true, let's spare a thought for the man himself. From being written off and abused by his own supporters, to seemingly being happy and making a name for himself again, over before it had begun. Devastating personally for him and his family, as well as his career. Best wishes to him from us all I'm sure. Ok, back to self-interest. Trying to be positive, I feel there are a lot of goals to come from A.W. when played centrally, as we now have midfielders who can not only spot/anticipate his runs, but have the ability to get the ball to him. On that note, can we please stop the criticism of him for, 1. Pointless runs. He makes the right runs. It's not his fault if no one can get the ball to him. Also it creates space for others. (A good thing) Fam would get hammered on here (and rightly so) if he didn't bother going in the box because 4/5 crosses didn't go near him. 2. Runs a lot but no end product. Well I'm very happy with 2 goals in 2 games resulting from him pressuring the keeper. One of these came from him chasing a "lost cause" from the centre circle. Also, I wouldn't call it pointless to stop defenders feeling comfortable on the ball and stopping them from dictating the pace of the game. (Another good thing)
  6. First day with new employer. He gets the usual initial duties, "Stand there, do this, wear this, look happy." from the media people. He managed 3 out of 4. Unless you really need to be outraged, give him a break.

  8. None of you guys think we'll need a replacement for Webster? I do hope you're right.
  9. It didn't matter, we had a pre-agreed option at a set price when he first arrived. If we wanted him, the only thing to stop the deal would have been Jay not wanting to come, irrespective of how much more other clubs offered. There is the same arrangement with one of the other two Chelsea loanees. (Not sure, but I think it's Palmer.) I imagine the low fee spread over 3 years, would also allow a signing on fee that made us more attractive, whilst sticking within the wage budget. Great work from all involved in the deal. Welcome back Jay.
  10. Stream - https://vipbox.fi/watch-swansea-city-vs-bristol-city-stream-1 - (Although I have no sound at the moment.)
  11. Good point Loon Plague. However, my understanding is that the Republicans didn't share the Stalin idealism, but rejected the Fascism of the Nationalists who did share Hitler's ideology. Although they gladly accepted arms and volunteers from Stalin, they would have preferred military support from France (Who were considering it) Britain, US etc. Atrocities committed by both sides but there is a simplistic good v evil there. Football Forum....oh.....nice shirt.
  12. Even I'm not old enough to dispute the Atyeo claim, (although old enough to have seen him and dribble in my own lap.) but the earliest I've witnessed is Colin Cramb after 12 seconds. Loved his attitude and work rate that day. We were 2 - 0 up soon after, and he went for a huge sliding tackle to win the ball in their half on 19 minutes. It was the sort of effort normally reserved for the last minute winner/equaliser. Well, you can't keep the punters happy if you're only 2-0 up after 20 minutes can you?
  13. You can stream the rest of RB but it won't let you have match commentary on the internet.
  14. MAGGERS IS INNOCENT - OFFICIAL (In an unofficial way) VAR shows (and verified by that nice Mr Clattenburg) that it was the striker shoving his legs into Mags that caused the tangle.
  15. A few times he has been their most forward player including when they scored. A goal coming for him surely?
