  1. That's the family club you're referring to mind. Of course, there are lots of families from hell, throughout their traditional catchment areas. Whereas, those families from hell in our traditional catchment areas, also support Rovers.
  2. Perhaps Bodin or Miah would comment.
  3. I wouldn't want him at my club, they might.
  4. Steady on with that sort of terminology, "their promotion video". The sad deluded support base will think they're playing in the championship next season.
  5. Major, I agree entirely with you. Our club are a bunch of pussies compared to others who have a different attitude. **** um, I'd rather see a get up and at them attitude where we don't appear inferior to other so called bigger clubs, you're a goal down already with that attitude. I see Brentford as a smaller club, it doesn't seem to give them an inferiority complex, they love playing so called bigger teams off the park. Unfortunately as has been seen with the other posts on here, it's almost as if we're apologetic for competing in the same division as them. It needs a more bullish attitude right through the club. There's no doubt our infrastructure is improving but, we now have to start thinking we are on a level playing field. Ok some clubs have big expensive squads, with that comes other pressures, such as keeping two first teams happy, after all they can only use fourteen players in any one match, the same as us.
  6. Just had a look at his Facebook page. He is indeed a Typical deluded Gashead. Taking the mickey out of AG when we played F C Twente with a picture of the Lansdown stand sparsely populated. What he doesn't say is, that it was only the Dolman which was open that night with an attendance of 5,330, only about 2k off their average home support for league matches. Wouldn't they love that for a pre season friendly? He even thinks the rugby lot had bigger crowds at their lost/stolen spiritual home. As for wrote off all our debt, I've news for them, they haven't, they just transferred the debt to themselves (Dwayne Sports), which might need repaying anytime soon. They were actually in better shape when they stole the rugby ground and started collecting rent from the rugby club but, it started to go downhill pretty soon after that. The Stefan Payne signing went well! I do think he believes this shit, every profile update on his page, features the ground stealers. The thing is, other pillocks of similar intellect will read it and believe it.
  7. You've been following City for a long time then?
  8. Correct, I was being the devils advocate.
  9. Predicting that we're going to struggle picking points up against anyone bar Wigan and Reading, was being positive? We lost to a very poor Reading as well as Wigan mind. I was only being provocative in my original post. I think we're better now than earlier in the season but still struggle when it's the more important games, as we don't create enough.
  10. But we were nailed on for a home win against Ipswich as well.
  11. Being professional in ones assessment of players is prudent, I would have thought. It would seem that buying players, as opposed to scouting and picking them up for nothing is the route our club has taken and is yet to really bare any fruit, for that level of investment. Seems strange that very few of our relatively big money young signings have actually got anywhere near the first team. Those that did, went in as part of the squad virtually straight away, Patterson, O'Dowda, Brownhill, Elliason is one that is gradually breaking through, Walsh is one where the jury is out. The majority of those gamble signings seem nowhere near and in danger of being offloaded permanently.
  12. He's not the gas manager you know. Ok he's not had unlimited funds but, he's been backed by the owner more than any manager in our history, even taking inflation into account. Marquee signings, for us = Fammy, Baker, Webster and the money wasted on players not making an impact or, so say bought for the future and still to make an impression, is not a small figure either. It's how it's been spent not on whom. We could have invested in recruitment for finding younger players and not spunked out millions on nearly old/good enough players and instead spent on the first team. Just because other teams have spent more on strikers, doesn't mean he hasn't been well supported. Evidently we had deals agreed for top strikers as well, which would have been marquee signings.
  13. Limited resources, really?

    The Kiwi keeper

    I was referring to your statement : "and he had a game affected simply by nerves". I was pointing out that other factors were at play.
