  1. I fully agree and have been saying it for a few years now. I think we missed a massive trick in the summer of 2015 not trying to pack our squad out with some quality loans rather than chucking £9m at players with £40k p/w wage demands, we were a young, attacking side that would’ve been an attractive proposition for clubs to send their players to. The next year we signed Abraham, which worked out perfectly. If you take Derby for an example — previous overspenders in this league... go and appoint Frank Lampard. Would Derby have appointed a name like this without knowing the contacts he has
  2. He’s signed on a new long term deal. That gives me reassurance that he’s been promised that his ambition will be matched. Exciting summer ahead chaps.
  3. I loved (and still do) Cotterill, but there's a big difference between not being backed and not caving into 40k per week demands on strikers we've just agreed a £9m fee for, which at the time was over four times our current transfer record. You've got to remember at the time we were averaging 12k and couldn't have predicted with absolute certainty the massive rise in revenue from both ticket sales and money that Ashton Gate is producing. I think we should've been a bit more savvy. In League One we were a big fish and had the most resources so had the pick of the bunch, a bit like clu
  4. The 24-year-old is yet to start a Championship match for City since joining them from Cheltenham last July in a deal worth £800,000 up front, with another £200,000 due this summer - a record fee received for the League Two club. - https://www.gloucestershirelive.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/bristol-city-boss-lee-johnson-2889696 That's from Jon Palmer who broke the story of Eisa joining us, mate.
  5. Jack Hunt's the best right back we've had since Orr, whereas Bailey Wright in that position is absolute tripe.
  6. "Ex-Prem" means nothing to me — football wasn't created in '92, a better stat is that we have competed in nine top flight seasons compared to Barnsley's one. They average about 8,000 less home fans than we do, their away support isn't as good as ours when you factor in mileage (see below, credit to SoutheySWFC from 1FF for the table), our ground holds about 4,000 more seats than theirs, the population of Bristol is over double that of Barnsley's so the potential of our fanbase is far greater as evidenced at Wembley when we take 42,000 for a JPT final and they managed less than what we ave
  7. Undermines Johnson I think so I wouldn't bother.
  8. Likely to be a lengthy and boring read if you don't pay much attention to attendances in football, but I was having a discussion on the weekend with a Rovers fan who was speaking about their game with Barnsley on the final day. His claim was that Rovers raise their game when the "bigger" sides come to the Mem (without wanting to overrule his opinion on his own team, I was quick to point out that they lost at home to Sunderland and Pompey) and it had me thinking, if Barnsley are considered a draw in League One then are Bristol City, and if so is that reflected in the attendance figures at games
  9. My mate's brother is Cundy's centre half partner (Jack Batten) and I've spoken to him about him before and he thinks he's a fantastic player. Bit of an odd signing given his age though. Also spoke very highly of Semenyo, said he's going to the very top.
  10. Lines has joined Northampton. Clarke tried to hijack it and all, think they'd have all gone and gotten cheap season tickets at Walsall instead of paying the extortionate rates Wael charges if he'd have gone there.
  11. Coughlan's 1/2 on for the Plymouth job. Amazing. The global institution of Bristol Rovers potentially about to lose their manager to a fourth tier rival club of theirs.
  12. Bit early to be on the booze on a weekday isn't it mate?
  13. I do mate yes, not pedantic at all that's a clear error Glad I mentioned Holden in the same post otherwise would've looked a right muppet. He's not so chirpy on Twitter anymore you'll be surprised to hear, neither is his girlfriend by the looks of things...
  14. You're not far off. He occasionally gets off the bench for Rochdale. He has less league starts than our very own Rory Holden who's on loan there - worked out quite funnily hasn't it.
