  1. Actually Lee did fight a wolf once - I believe that he was once one of the three little pigs who took on Wofie alongsdie the City Cat.
  2. Definitely, and although Terry's side will be a lot older now I still think they'd win...
  3. He's doing this for a living. If he gets sacked then he gets a year's pay, if he walks he gets nowt. Would you give away a year's money when you've got a family to keep going and no idea where your next job's coming from?
  4. Agree with everything the OP says. Would also add that I think the players are much less easy to identify with these days. Time was, with the likes of Murray, Tinnion, Carey, Bell etc. you felt more of a connection. There seemed to be fewer players then and they seemed to stay for a long time - giving time to feel a connection. Now we have so many players, and they seem to be here today and gone tomorrow. Connection with modern football seems much more difficult now. I haven't done the research on this - just how it seems to me, so could easily be bowlocks.
  5. I know this isn't anything to do with the takeover, but it is Burnley and it needs to be seen. If only all press conferences were like this:
  6. Maybe included in this 'financial reset' there should also be some thought as to how many full time clubs are actually viable. At the moment it's 92 in the FL, plus a few more in the National League, and that takes no account of Scotand or Wales. Seems completely unrealistic to me. Can see quite a few going to the wall I fairly random way. Some element of franchising wouldn't surprise me, although I'd hate it.
  7. My point is that we are absolutely nowhere near good enough to be thinking about the Prem. Is it acceptable, you ask? Well, not to most supporters but then it's not our call. It appears to be acceptable to the owner judging by the way are being run. Nothing wrong with being a mid table Championship club - I just wish the powers that be would stop kidding themselves and us.
  8. By the way, Norwich finished bottom of the Prem last year with 21 points - and we are nowhere near their quality.
  9. Oops, you're probably right. Mind you, Danny Kaye thinks different:
  10. Interesting read this thread. Keeping Fammy or not seems to hinge on how serious we are about getting to the Prem. We've all heard the official line, but then actions and our record of selling our best and recruiting potential rather indicates that the Prem is a Board pipedream rather than something we are actively striving to achieve (King's new clothes and all that). Personally I'd keep Fammy - he's a better than average Championship player, IMO, and we are no better than that as a club or likely to be.
  11. Wasn't much hugging and kissing going on in the Bristol and District in my day. Just banning that when players are still tackling each other, still jumping for the same ball, still hooking up for defensive walls seems pointless. If they are to strictly observe the rules then football must stop - it's a contact sport. Despite all the safeguards there still seem to be a lot of Covid cases on football, so precautions dont seem to be working that well. Of course it's good for us to watch the game, but then again you can see some not taking social distancing seriously when they see what h
  12. Oh dear. Was thinking about posting something about Rowe and Martin, but that would be no Laugh In matter.
  13. Crikey, this is just how major World religions start. She is ris! Hallelujah!
  14. A friend of mine was coming back from London on the train late with a mate one evening. They'd been at the bar for a while and had taken on more than a few beers when Tommy Doc turned up. Somehow they thought it funny to break into song: "Who's up Mrs Brown, who's up Mrs Brown". Hilarious eh? After a couple of sharp words, one of which was 'off' he bought them a drink and had a good long natter. Very decent old style football bloke by all accounts.
