  1. Now, now Dave. That's not like you/you're better than that....
  2. 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 M
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. ....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!
  6. Callum is going to run his contract down, stop, then pass it back to someone behind him....
  7. 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!
  8. Great rhythm. Ace,even (someone already done this, surely?) Gonna sort the defence out (etc etc)
  9. He never showed up for the game, mate
  10. 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.
  11. 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 g
  12. If we'd got Eddie, I'm sure we'd ...... must try and let it go
  13. 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?
  14. 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.
  15. like it, thanks mate. You hearing anything else? I'm hearing things too but I'm keeping this to meself for the moment.
  16. No idea, mate. Too soon to say. I'll bump this in November
  17. "We do not see things as they are, we see things as we are" as someone itk once wrote, and if their sources were bang on then all of us see Bristol City individually, through the lens of our own experience and "reality." Some folks are terribly irrational and unreasonable and appear to struggle with stuff like context, expectations, and, er, "reality." Existence, basically. For many, it will not only be so with their football club. I have my own moments of despair and despondency too (we have had to wait longer than most for top class football again, other than the minnows). Being on here
  18. The faster life moves (thanks to technology) the worse impatience gets. People become agitated, are affronted, by having to wait now because technology is supposed to deliver everything instantly, or at least quicker than before. Bristol City fans have had to wait more than most - it's a wonder we're not more irritable and frustrated and fed up and affronted than we are.
  19. They find a way, Derby, they find a way to win games and circumvent the rules and pay more than the season before and still not go up.
  20. Well, we know a lot more about Leeds, which is lovely, but I wonder how the "stew" is - any news?
  21. A fib/rumour/Otib post gets halfway around the world before Robbored comes on and makes the thread all about himself. Or something. Winston Churchill.
  22. John Cage's 4'33" perhaps? I'm sure Downsy'll have this in his record collection....
