    Does this mean the attacker dived and should therefore get a ban, or does it mean this was Fams and Wrights fault and both will get a minimum six game ban?
  2. I can't make the game tomorrow but would be happy to donate if there's another way. You never know when life will deal you a bum hand through no fault of your own. To me, that's the time when others need to rally around and look after one of our own if they can afford to. I'm in no way a rich man, but I wouldn't miss £20. If that can make a difference to this fella (and his familys) life, then count me in.
  3. A little from column A, a little from column B, Bob.
  4. Of course he wont Dave. He's The Sage and is never wrong (unless the OS tells him differently). Facts have never got in the way of his utter drivel and never will. For a bloke that worked in the mental health profession, you have to wonder how many people he actually helped considering he comes across as an utter basketcase himself. Put the Cockwomble on ignore and forget about him.
  5. Not filling the bench to prove a point is the one thing that will always rankle with me. Even if he had no plans to actually put a youngster on the pitch the experience wouldve been invaluable to them. Other than that, he did a fantastic job for us.
  6. Is it not on red button? If not, you can stream it for £10 through the OS.
  7. Is that a Thom Yorke lyric?
  8. I'm not sure how to word this as I would never try to belittle what happened there as it was utterly horrendous, but for me, Belsen shocked me more. I'm not going to try and use numbers as a reference as to why I think that as humans should never be referenced as just a number but Belsen was harrowing. Especially considering they never actually had gas chambers there (no matter what the Sex Pistols may have sang about) I suppose it didn't help that my grandad was one of the first wave of troops that helped liberate Belsen. From listening to the people that knew him before that (especially my nan) they all say he was never the same afterwards. As a kid growing up he would tell me loads of stories about certain parts of the war (he was a desert rat fighting Rommel through Africa/Egypt and Italy). He told me about scratching his name on the sphinx and how his best friend burned to death in a tank that he escaped from, but he absolutely refused to speak about Belsen and what he saw. One of the great British reporters of the time Richard Dimbleby (father of David Dimbleby) said at the time "Here over an acre of ground lay dead and dying people. You could not see which was which... The living lay with their heads against the corpses and around them moved the awful, ghostly procession of emaciated, aimless people, with nothing to do and with no hope of life, unable to move out of your way, unable to look at the terrible sights around them ... Babies had been born here, tiny wizened things that could not live ... A mother, driven mad, screamed at a British sentry to give her milk for her child, and thrust the tiny mite into his arms, then ran off, crying terribly. He opened the bundle and found the baby had been dead for days. This day at Belsen was the most horrible of my life." Every day of our lives we should be thankful that we have never had to see or live through the absolute horror that people of only two or three generations past had to live.
  9. Agree with most of that but saying he doesn't have the strength yet you would like him to be more physical in tackling seems like an oxymoron to me. I personally dont think strong tackles will be his game even after he 'fills out'. Hes far too clever a footballer for that. I think Nagy's injury has forced LJ's hand to a certain degree to play HNM and there is no doubting his quality but he is still a kid. You can't play an 18 year old every game in the Championship without fear of burning him out. Especially one who is still sleight of frame. I've kind of suspected that the plan is for him to replace Brownhill next season after we've sold Josh for £millions to a another team. Yeah, JB is quality and will get better no doubt, but HNM has a higher potential. It's always been part of our ethos. The more money we make from player sales, the more we can spend on young players, who, if we train them properly, we can sell for higher fees, and we can then spend more money on young players with higher potential and we go again.....and on and on......
  10. WTF? You think we shouldn't play our only available and experienced striker (who scored the equaliser) with tactics that doesn't suit him? I hate to piss on your parade, but he scored from a cross that any CF will thrive on. How is that not playing to Fams strengths? Yeah, LJ is deluded. How dare he make an early sub to make us more of an attacking threat against 10 men. How dare he try and give us more width against a team that tried to stifle the middle of the pitch. How dare he take off Palmer for someone that will try and stretch Stoke from wide positions. As for your Patterson comment, I dont even know where to start. He's on loan and he can't come back until the loan period has ended (unless there's a recall clause in January), so it can't be any sooner than we thought. Yeah, not an excellent performance overall, but we still did what was required and that has always been a sign of a good side. Personally, I think there's still a lot more to come from this team considering we have a lot of players who are either new to English football and/or to their teammates.
  11. 1.Totally opposing Bristol City Councils offer of funding when we were close to going bust in 82, then having the audacity of trying to buy Ashton Gate for peanuts at the same time. 2. Chanting and booing during a minutes silence for our chairman wjo had unfortunately died in 1991. 3. Holloways comment of 'the only good City fan is a dead one' 4. Rovers fans opposing our bid for Ashton Gate/Vale to be used as a World cup stadium. 5. Stealing the rugby ground with totally reprehensible behaviour. 6. Punching horses, punching players, stealing from the supporters club/changing rooms and racist abuse.... 7. Ian Alexander They are a stain on the underpants of Bristol and have been for over 40 years. Yes, they haven't been relevant for your lifetime, but a lot of people have long memories and will never forgive or forget.
  12. To quote Ricky Gervais "Offence can only be taken, not given"
  13. Listened to what RK had to say about JW and after hearing JW side of things I came to the conclusion that Keane is a self-aggrandising, arrogant *****. To belittle one mans personal suffering for a handful of cheap laughs from a bunch of strangers is totally crass at best and morally reprehensible at worst. Keane was a great footballer, absolutely no doubt, but as a human being he has always left a bad taste in my mouth. Lets not forget it takes an ego of epic proportions to walk out on your team mates at the start of a World Cup. It's not surprising that the only other person who has done that (that I can recall) is Nicholas Anelka and at least NA had a half decent reason to do what he did and was backed by a lot of his team mates at the time. I'm fairly certain that Keanes team mates never backed him to the same extent as Anelkas. Tbh, to me, that all completely pales in comparison to what RK did to Alf Inge Haaland. Completely wrecked his career with a pre-meditated tackle over a percieved slight about faking an injury. Utter cretin of a man no matter how good a footballer he may have been.
  14. Agree with that sentiment BS4 as I could never get my head around the AB love in. We've had many better keepers than Basso over the last 30-40 years than him. Definitely a great character though and I can see why some fans would've liked him. As Pickle Rick said above, cult hero is a much better tag than legend IMO.
