  1. Yep. Even though it said I wasn't logged in, I still had the "Logout" option. Took that, logged back in again and all was ok.

  3. Obviously the chorus is more relevant to Rovers recent history than us.. All the more reason to grab it now before they notice.
  4. He did a certain type of job and was always more likely to score than our keeper. Now about that walk. One of my favourites is off-topic.
  5. It may seem crazy to you @JonDolman, it did to me at first, but look deeper. "A recent study with more than 12,000 participants found just 8.2% were left footed." (Psychology Today - Always a fun read.) - That's an even lower proportion than left handers. The Law of averages doesn't get decimated by accident. It's planned development. Brian "Mr Nice Guy" Tinnion is clearly building an Uber Lefty Sleeper Army of physically fit warriors, hiding in plain sight at a Football Club. You may laugh but think about it. If my Timeline is correct, he was involved in the training of J
  6. Some good points there, but footballers' versions of Linkedin are agents, words from contacts in the industry and videos. Potential employers seeing them be crap, won't help their prospects, just get them moved on with nowhere to go but down. Would you look at someone and think "They're really rubbish, I must employ them" Many forget about the family aspects you mention, moving home schools etc. and how unsettling it can be. Although difficult, isn't that even more reason to put the effort in when things go bad? When Andy Weimann joined, part of the reason was the oppo
  7. The only thing I know to be true is when he and some friends came in the Coronation Tap when I was working, he had 1, maybe 2 drinks, consumed at a very moderate pace. (The same can not be said of Steve Jones on a different occasion. Possibly a story for a another time.) I'm not sure of the timeline. Did their times at the club overlap at all? Could it all be Stevie J's fault? Either way, sadly he didn't volunteer to keep me informed of his future locations, activities and consumption. The Bastard!
  8. Congratulations are due to us all. Although we lost the chase for Joey Barton to Rovers, we have faced defeat with dignity and grace. No bitter moaning of disappointment, no cries of what could have/should have been, just a cautious hope and warm welcome for this Pearson guy. I'm proud of everyone. Well done all you brave, brave soldiers.
  9. Reported as some mystery virus that caused T.D. to rapidly lose 2 stone in a matter of weeks. Some claiming to be i.t.k. said that due to boredom and frustration during a lengthy lay off, he went off the rails a bit and shall we say, didn't lead a healthy lifestyle. I know of this only as rumour. Whatever the cause, it seemed a different player returned.
  10. As stated, I was talking pre illness. He was spectacular that night and fully justified all the talk of a future star. However, we didn't see that player again after the illness. I would agree later opinions of him were more based on him being "One of our own." than his actual performances.
  11. I was wondering if I needed to clarify the situation regarding Bentley. I know (We all do.) we must keep Bentley, but it's "No previous knowledge of City and last 3 matches only." I initially thought Kalas and Bentley, but then realised I wasn't doing the above. If as a neutral I watched a keeper let in 6 goals in one match, and 3 in the next, without making loads of spectacular saves, there would be nothing to suggest he was an essential keeper. I know it wasn't his fault. It's a difficult and different situation for a G.K. to look great. They don't have the control t
  12. Many moons ago I took a Palace supporting mate, new to Bristol, down to watch a City match. After the game he volunteered our 4 best players. "Tinnion, (Of course) Greg Goodridge, a pre illness Tommy D and another." In my opinion, a very accurate assessment of the night. After reading the Keep/Go thread by @Dredd, I decided to play "Let's pretend." I decided to play "Let's pretend." Let's pretend I'm the one new to Bristol, and have no knowledge of City apart from watching the last 3 matches. Out of the 14-15 players i had watched each game, more in total, which would I tell
  13. Not only would his running provide a safe forward outlet option for our defence, apart from A.S.'s occasional direct runs, we have no one to panic the opposition defence. Result, a confident opposition defence and midfield with time on the ball, happy to camp in our half. He seemed to set the bar in terms of effort and work rate for the rest of the team. Many seemed not to notice how many goals came as a result of him chasing "lost causes" (Known by some on here as "Pointless running round.") from the half way line. Even if he didn't win the ball, get a corner etc, it would
  14. When we started the season with a high press - "We aim to be one of the fittest teams in the league." That worked out well.
  15. 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.
