  1. Also, he may have been instructed to stay deeper, but he does seem slower than usual. That may be due to the surface though. Not one to go charging in on.
  2. He was limping badly during a water break earlier.
  3. Nothing I've heard suggests D.H. is anything but sincere. However, this doesn't exclude starting the match to win, having to reassess as the match progresses, and settling for a draw.
  4. Yesterday, my Forest fan flatmate returned and defiantly waved a betting slip in my face. He had the team that hasn't scored this season to win 5-0 at 150-1. (He was done. Those are fair odds for them to just score twice.) On the plus side, when he reflects on his latest stupidity, he might just realise how far his drink and drug addictions have taken him. Here's hoping.
  5. Me too. Black Satin really shows the stains so badly. (Yes. I have been drinking)
  6. Sorry. The sarcastic pedant in me was agreeing with you and applauding your hurt. Perhaps my large consumption of Stella this afternoon doesn't make me as amusing as I think.
  7. They're not the same. WIP means stuff is being done towards the goal. "It's a Working Process" points out that to make progress, work will be necessary. It's possible they can't be bothered with the work thing, so no progress will be made. e.g. "No way! Don't you realise that lots of work would be involved to achieve that." Could be???????
  8. Although not tipped to last the whole season, Messrs Pride, Hope and Optimism, have come through Pre Season relatively unscathed, after a few knocks and niggles. (Or at least in my world they have.)
  9. Here's a wild idea, shall we pause this thread until we actually know if he will miss a match? "Additionally, centre-back Nathan Baker is a doubt" Has anyone witnessed the "strong challenge" quoted, or know who it was made by before criticising? The same article states "Some sources have even suggested that Williams (Joe) is out for a lengthy amount of time - up to 12 weeks." It also mentions Liam Walsh being out having picked up "a knock." That's just from training' without even managing a friendly. J.W. hasn't even played for us yet. Should we look to move him on along wit
  10. Regularly beaten as I remember. Anyway, football stuff. I feel a Happy New Year coming on. (Opinion may change by 3.10pm)
  11. I have to take issue with "with what Johnson has had to spend." without considering what has been lost in terms of cash and outgoing players. For 2019, as per http://priceoffootball.com/bristol-city-2018-19-empty-skies/ Player signings £10.2 million Player sales £39.7 million So a net spend on the squad of almost minus 30m. To add to this, most of the money has been spent not on improving the squad, but retaining the Chelsea guys from the previous season. In addition, two of these have been out for most of the season thus far. I'm sure there were "Johnson Out
  12. A good and often overlooked point that I agree with JD, although the number of attempts can't be questioned. This wasn't intended a criticism of TM. As stated, I am very glad he's here and also amazed at how quickly he has adapted to the Championship. To make it clear, not only do I feel he is a valuable player for us now, given his ability, age and perceived attitude, I feel he will either become a long term stalwart of the club, or return a very handsome profit in the future. My point (Badly made) was many on here have players who will always be vilified, and those that will
  13. I agree with much of the above post, and would like to add a few "damn statistics," Apologies for memory failures, but it went roughly something like this, Aerial duels won. TM - 43% Baker/Kalas - 72 & 78% To add to this, TM only attempted approx 55 & 60% of each of the other two. No matter how well he played in the previous match, if you are expecting to face a long ball aerial bombardment or decent wingers, TM should be way down the pecking order. If Bailey Wright was chosen in the above scenario with those stats, I feel it would be another case of
  14. His Career from YTS to now, both on and off the field. Includes a new angle on Piss-Gate, A Tattooed, Cross Dressing Mark Little, and it was Marshmallows not Pies that Lee Tomlin ate. Also useful male grooming tips. Excerpt - One of the interviewers when he contacted Alby for the first time. "So you've knocked football on the head?" Alby. - "I played Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday, and scored a penalty at Old Trafford last week." Must be nice to be a famous player.
