  1. Don't have a problem with this. Uefa tried to get it moved to England but both them and the UK gov couldn't agree on the terms. Given the circumstances I think Portugal is a good solution, yes it will be pricey for fans but that's usually the case with European finals I guess. At least they can attend though and it will be nice to see the stadiums with fans again. If people want to complain about covid then I would like to point you towards the Europa League Final in Poland which has x10 the covid rates of Portugal at the moment.
  2. I have a photo somewhere that I took in the last 5 mins where everyone was stood at the side of the pitch getting ready for the full time pitch invasion, was such a good atmosphere that night, that and the Hartlepool game are my favourite memories of AG. Quality goals by both Trundle and McIndoe but overall it was a real team effort that season.
  3. I watched the FL show last weekend and they mentioned that James Vaughan (their top scorer by far with 18 goals) has been injured for a couple of months, he returned in their last game and they were wondering if he wasn't properly fit but will be needed for the play offs anyway. You can see his stats at the bottom here (games he played and scored in), possibly interesting for those who are into betting... https://us.soccerway.com/players/james-vaughan/2885/
  4. Must say I have never heard of Robbie Robin before. Was he around for long and when did the club let him go roughly?
  5. Looks like they already have financial problems and from this article it sounds like their owner isn't much good... https://www.swindonadvertiser.co.uk/news/19068433.supporters-trust-demands-clarity-communication-swindon-town-owner-lee-power/ I would be worried if I was a Swindon fan anyway because it seems they are in bad shape on and off the pitch, appointing Fowler doesn't sound like a sensible move to me either. I would be very surprised if this move worked out well should it happen.
  6. Now I'm at work and have a PC I can answer this question 10 home league games without a win in one season equals the previous club record set in the 1931/32 season although that was 6D, 4L rather than this teams current form of 1D, 9L. Over 2 seasons the club record is 11 home league games without a win which was unsurprisingly set in 2013 when we were relegated from the Championship and took ages to win in League One. Earlier in that relegation season we also went on a run of 9 home league games without a win (after beating Palace and Cardiff and going top of the league if I
  7. You just know the Gas fans are already eyeing up FGR away as the must go to away game next season and are hoping that they stay down, its very harsh wanting to take that away from them.
  8. Barnsley - like to see teams up against it do well, believe Brentford have a long record of bottling the play offs so they can continue that curse for all I care, one day would be nice to see them in the prem. Quite like Swansea so wouldn't mind if it's them and Bournemouth I don't mind but not this year. Lincoln - similar to Barnsley although also because they would likely be near the bottom and that's good for us, same for Oxford. Blackpool are the team I fancy to win as they are in good form and have a good record in play offs I think. Not Sunderland, nothing against LJ but a club of t
  9. 2020/21 Club Records Broken Most home league defeats in a season - 13 (previously 11 in 2012/13) Lowest number of home league goals scored - 18 (previously 19 in 1923/24 and 1980/81) Most league defeats without being relegated - 25 (lost more league games in 2012/13 and 1959/60 and the same number in 1931/32 - all relegation seasons) Not a record this but after never previously having had a better away record than home in 106 football league seasons, we have had a better away record in all of the past 3 seasons.
  10. Was supposed to be in Istanbul last year originally but was pushed back a year, seems a bit harsh not to push it back again for them so they can have a better chance of hosting a final with a full stadium. Guessing at this stage less than a month out it is too late to change but I still think that common sense should allow them to be flexible given the current situation, move the final to somewhere in this country and let Istanbul have it next year instead. For UEFA delegates, sponsors etc to change their plans at this stage would probably be a logistical nightmare and if Madrid/Paris had won
  11. I was very close to the Derby fans a couple of years ago when they beat us in that game to decide who was going to finish in the play offs pretty much. To be fair it wasn't most of their fans but some were taking lots of pleasure taking the piss out of our supporters that day. I know it was only a bit of fun and we would have done the same but I would still like to see if a season in league 1 would humble them a little. Think they would spend more in the summer than Wednesday and Rotherham so from that POV it would be better to see them go down too. Scratching my head at how Derby managed 9 le
  12. Will be a real test for Jose at Roma, they are 7th in Italy and 9pts behind the 6th placed club (although they beat the likes of Shakhtar and Ajax in europe getting to the semis of the Europa league). Three of their main attackers (Dzeko, Mkhitaryan, Pedro) are aged between 32-35 and their other main forward is on loan from Real Madrid. They are owned by an American group which I think means they are very unlikely to spend much on transfers that will be needed to catch up. I think Jose's options were very limited in England after what he did at Spurs and I can see his stock falling further on
  13. Looks to me like the protesters have done a good job of getting their voices heard and after their owners tried to reshape football with no consultation I think that's much needed. Not sure if it will be very effective in bringing lasting change in terms of how their club is run but credit to the people for damaging the prospects of the European Super League further and showing how fan action can be used to harm the owners pockets when they damage the sport. Some might choose to focus on the violence which was obviously wrong but overall I think the vast majority of football fans will side the
  14. I would agree with it being a 3-4 year project, if there was a real threat of relegation then time might have to be up sooner but beyond that I would want him to have a fair amount of time and authority to try and build up his own vision. Hopefully this doesn't happen but if we are lower mid table playing boring football this time next year or in 18 months then I would be calling for patience, but after that time period I would expect to start seeing an improvement.
  15. Whether it works out or not I think the board have made the right move bringing in a serious, no nonsense character with a good level of experience at this level and the level we aspire to be at. It will possibly take a few years to rebuild the squad so I see it as a tricky long term project and it comes with plenty of risk if results don't pick up, but hoping Nige is the man to build a squad with what it takes to challenge at the top end of the championship. To make an underperforming city like Bristol realise its potential is a great opportunity for the right man, plenty have failed or haven
