  1. They'll do well to do worse than Rotherham 2016/17, who were relegated with 23 points from 46 games (5 wins, 8 draws). Only Barnsley in 52/3(18 points), Port Vale 57/8 (22 points), Watford 72/3 (19 points) and Sheff Weds 75/6 (21 points) managed to win fewer points - but as I need not tell you, that was in 42 games, not 46. Going by points per game and adjusting for three points for a win, Rotherham in 2016/17 are/were statistically the worst second tier side since WW2. And when we scraped past them that season 1:0 at home, our manager at the time talked up his brave decision to
  2. I remember my lad, about 9, not so long ago, playing in defence for a South Glos junior team. He tried to play it out from the back, on the deck, and when it went wrong, the coach and others shouting: "Get rid!" And other similar, enlightened instructions. The panic on the touchline seeped on to the field. I thought we had got rid of the "Get Rid!" Charles Hughes/bulldog thing in kiddies football?
  3. His father told him to mind his own business. Seems fair enough to me
  4. Fam today, but no Fam tomorrow
  5. Get Pato off now, Deano, bring Bakinson on and let's hang on to what we've got....
  6. Joe would be one of those footballers that yer insecure poorly educated, abuse-bantering munter type fans - and players! - cannot warm to, and feel threatened by, for reasons they cannot fathom, and a player that traditionally, upon seeing him in possession of a book, or a newspaper that did not contain a picture of a young woman dressed only in her pants, would label as "gay," and want to fill him in (or, in the 21st century, send him abusive messages via an electronic thingy).
  7. Not excited? What sort of a Dog are you, pal?
  8. Knowing that there are morons in this world, and that the digital world is where you can find them - and them you - 24/7, one wonders why intelligent chaps in the public eye spend any time on there.
  9. Let's send Joe some nice tweets, then. Tell him great he is, how much we miss him etc, and be very clear that he was only picked because he was the bestist player we had down the left. Then he'll tell the next newspaper that interviews him, and the headline will be: Bristol City fans were weally nice to me (after they had been weally howibble)
  10. When he takes us up, we will carry him shoulder high the length of Dean Lane, and he will be given the freedom of Dean Lane, allowing him to drive his sheep and/or squad along Dean Lane as he wishes (even during the school run). And Dean Lane will, of course, be renamed: Deano Lane.
  11. It is human nature to make swift, snap judgements, about all manner of things. As you yourself will have done about Deano, whether you put it on here for others to see or not.
  12. I know that "Ayling" feeling (who doesn't?), not sure I know the "Freeman" or "Freeman/Ayling" feeling though. Where, precisely, do you feel it?
  13. Yes. I can't see Chris Hughton up the Lions nursing a Thatchers.
  14. You can't get rid of the back pages, mate. Trust me, I know about this sort of thing. Not even Bristol Sports, Mark Ashton, Jon Lansdown and Lisa Knights could get rid of the back pages, even if they wanted to (the bastards). Unless they get rid of all of the pages, of course.
  15. None of this would've happened if we'd binned Dicksy off in about '73, and appointed Laurie McMenemy. As I, er, was insisting we should do at the time (amazingly prescient, for a six year old. Precocious, even). Or even Alec Ferguson in '78. I'd have probably gone for Rinus Michels, actually, in about '66/'67, thinking about it now. Save all this bloody misery. Dicks out! (listen to the people - they know what they're talking about).
  16. If you could ask Dean Holden just one of them three questions, which one would you ask him?
