  1. "Eddie Nketiah it is cold, In your little corner of the, er, changing room, You could roll around the Championship / Bailey Wright, And never find a warmer soul to know .... Oh Nketiah you will never know, anything about our ground We'll never know how good it feels to hold/loan you, Nketiah we need you so ...... ........ Do you ever dream of us? Do you ever see the online forum things we write? ..... And if there ever comes a time Bielsa - bub no longer picks you , bud And if you're free to make a choice (and prepared attend a bloody medical) Just look toward the West and find a PL club in waiting (there will be some waiting involved) ...... Eddie Nketiah you will never know...." This is what singing is for, lads. It works. Getting angry, trying to explain and understand what happened : you - we - are just prolonging the pain, the hurt. Singing - together - and loving and supporting who we do have: I know it's not what we do, but unfortunately, what we do is not helping, and does not work.
  2. Agreed. What shall we do Saturday, then - get on Bailey Wright's back?
  3. Cos they're full of sh1t, like so many - it would appear - in top level football
  4. The more I get to know how the game works, the less I like it. I reckon being ignorant/deluded and keeping a distance is best (even if it means blaming, wrongly, LJ/MA/Bailey Wright for everything, poor sods). The fawning and bowing and scraping involved, while they demand an extortionate fee as well, to these almighty PL clubs, makes my skin crawl.
  5. Now, now Dave. That's not like you/you're better than that....
  6. Lesson 5, A Course In Miracles: I Am Never Upset For The Reason I Think. Very useful Yankee spiritual life advice for LJ, City fans and OTIB Otibers bothered by Bailey Wright, Fam fluffing chances, City flunking penalty shootouts, kiddies not turning up for medicals, centre halves not being replaced, parking problems around BS3, season ticket issues, posters posting stuff that's just plain bollocks, etc. Other Lessons include: 1. Nothing I See Means Anything. 2. I Have Given Everything I See - even Bailey Wright trying to pass a football - All The Meaning That It Has For Me. 3. I Do Not Understand Anything I See. 4. My Thoughts - about Bailey Wright - Do Not Mean Anything. 6. I Am Upset Because I See Something That Is Not There (ie Bailey Wright: why are you not in the penalty area cutting out that cross about to be swept past our keeper?) 7. I See Only The Past. 8. My Mind Is Preoccupied With Past Thoughts. And previous visits to Loftus Road, not including last season. And Bailey Wright, defending ineptly. At somewhere like Preston. Or Birmingham. Or a dozen other Championship venues. 9. I See Nothing As It Is Now. Which is why @Harry wisely re-watches matches, and stills crucial points in games, frame by frame, so he can see things as they were now/last night, not as my mind tells me they were/are. And so it, and we, go on. Meaningless thoughts, showing us a meaningless world, and thus, a meaningless life we lead. And so we are upset. But not for the reason we think. And so, Bailey Wright must have it: both barrells, this Saturday, and every Saturday/Tuesday /Saturday, it's all his fault, the useless, meaningless Aussie ****!
  7. I note your strong attachment to these two fine employees but am reminded of the owner's instruction to free ourselves from the sentimental attachment to itinerant players. You would do well to do the same.
  8. Wtf are you on about - Bailey Wright must be singled out, scapegoated, undermined, booed, jeered, slaughtered, sledged, remorselessly, psychologically dismantled and shred of any morsel of confidence until he is incapable of tying up his boots. Or even driving to Ashton Gate. Or getting out of his festering Aussie bed in the morning.
  9. ....we can now move on our bile and hate and groaning/moaning and scapegoating and general misguided and cutting-off-our-nose-to-spite-our-face team self-harm to Bailey Wright! Starting Saturday. Buzzing for it! COYRs!
  10. Callum is going to run his contract down, stop, then pass it back to someone behind him....
  11. Nice and succinct, lovely. Glad you and everyone up there were rewarded with a bit of a fightback and the kind of point that puts a spring in the step rather than deflates. You Reds!
  12. Great rhythm. Ace,even (someone already done this, surely?) Gonna sort the defence out (etc etc)
  13. Most will, a fair few won't though. I hope people will learn to "tumbleweed" those that are ridiculously and consistently and unrelentingly negative, but sadly, a few will but most won't
  14. He never showed up for the game, mate
  15. I think we can speculate that "all" has not been well in the group/camp, pre-season/up to end of transfer window ie that a few stalwarts/regulars were able to read the writing on the wall, and the performances up to and including Leeds, reflected this. The manner of the two defeats and draw, the performances, have been less than might be expected from a team that finished 8th last season. Leeds lost 13 league games last season and we made them look unplayable. As said elsewhere, I reckon our pre-season games start today, and the league proper sometime in September.
  16. This looks like being the year for someone "unfancied," someone without parachute payments, to grab one of the three promotion places. But having missed out on our top target and potentially that bit of magic up front - a game-changing centre forward and goalscorer - and with a lot of churn to manage, it'll be a surprise if it turns out to be our year. Unless all our new midfield options bring goals with them as well as chances and assists, and Fam and Afobe exceed expectations.
  17. Being honest, back in 2012, 2013 or before that if someone had said on here "with a modernised ground we will average 15k for finishing 18th in the Championship and then over 20k for more Championship football, shifting 15k season tickets" your thoughts would've been pretty much the same, wouldn't they? Who saw this coming, other than SL? I think we have surprised ourselves with our numbers showing up (although the docile, unenthusiastic, "ffs Pack/City!" quality of support continues unchanged) and who knows what further support is out there, while the nationwide enthusiasm for the game goes on
  18. If we'd got Eddie, I'm sure we'd ...... must try and let it go
  19. Marlon could do very well over there. It's not like he'll need "30 training sessions" to grasp what Warnock wants him to do. It will be simple, and probably won't involve any "diagonal pockets" or the need to be a "cultural architect," wouldn't you say @Cowshed?
  20. You say we did "well" but the owner has been clear about what he wants and it's not "being up there just after Christmas then falling apart/away" or finishing 8th. He was talking about us challenging "at the other end of the table" when Cotts was still here. LJ will be clearer than anyone what SL wants and expects. I imagine he thought we are not going to do much better than 8th with Marlon, Pato and co. This is a "bold" move by LJ to try and go the next step - to be a top six/play off side.
  21. like it, thanks mate. You hearing anything else? I'm hearing things too but I'm keeping this to meself for the moment.
  22. We'll be trying to get him back in January. .....
  23. No idea, mate. Too soon to say. I'll bump this in November
