  1. But maybe not as frequent.
  2. Sex and alcohol are cheaper?
  3. That was my first chance to watch my team this season. I've followed all the games, just not seen them. It looked as if there was too much work for Bakinson to do and he seemed weak, possibly tired and too many games for him but, he wasn't the strong player I've been led to believe he was. Wells effectiveness would seem to be stifled if he's not in the box and that happened on very few occasions tonight, Semenyo seems much the stronger player and looks as if he'd benefit the team overall, more than an ineffective Nhaki Wells. There was little if any link up between midfield and attac
  4. I was ashamed at the amount of passes we dropped short, allowing Boro to step forward and take the ball. Forget the mistake. Our passing was poor to say the least, there was little if any thrust or desire to get at their defence and the free kick at the end summed up a night of poor decisions. One last chance to get the ball in the box and Tommy Rowe passes back to the keeper, just enough time for the ref to blow his whistle.
  5. Threw himself over the ball when it seemed easier to kick it. Clear shove and penalty.
  6. Thought it was Bakinson.
  7. The strange thing about the complaints made by the fans of the club that ruined Bristol Rugby financially, is their belief that this is the view held by the whole rugby club and not just one BCFC supporting player of that club. Having said that, you could quite understand why anyone associated with that club during the time of BRFC "acquiring" the rugby ground, why they would feel bitter towards their grounds new occupiers. I use the term occupiers, as the owners are based in the tax exile haven of Jersey. Pot and kettle spring to mind.
  8. One major reason for his departure in my opinion was his size. We all know you can get little terriers or dynamos as they're referred to but, I don't think Joe falls into that category. As such, he doesn't offer what our new man in charge is after and is surplus to requirements. Tidy little player who keeps the ball moving, somewhat like our previous man in charge, so not good enough for this level or the step up should we achieve that. We're an all round bigger tougher unit now, so no need to reduce that with his inclusion in the squad. We've suffered for too long with being bullied by m
  9. No no, he's just resting, look! he just moved.
  10. I do believe you're correct major, it looks to be having a sleep.
  11. As I said Dave, didn't set the third tier alight but, obviously did enough to impress the supporters of a team that finished 16th and lower than Rovers. They were on a wretched run of form prior to lockdown, which if continued would have seen them join the fourth tier. I'm not knocking him but it sounds bang average to me, something I would like to think we're aiming higher than.
  12. Couldn't put it better myself. Given more time, he might improve but, never set the third tier alight with dynamic performances and you have to trust the people that see him on a daily basis.
  13. Any preferential debt would be to HMRC or a bank, correct? As he's the main lender, I'm sure the tented rugby ground has a worth more than the debt owed to himself, which is an inflated self incurred debt anyway. So the only other preferential debt would be HMRC, if anything was owed. An obstacle to taking out a replacement loan would mean having another party with a charge on the asset, so he wouldn't do that, would he? The picture as I see it is, he owns all the assets and has spent money to acquire those assets, charged interest on that money spent and increased a fictional debt.
  14. This loan to shares thing really doesn't make any difference at all, as the person owning those shares has his debt covered by the assets. What it does to the share value as I understand it, is reduce it. That doesn't matter either, if you own them all but, if you only own say 8%, like the supporters club do, then it reduces their value and influence, even if they had no influence on decision making. So, he could increase the shares by 100% and the supporters shares would then be worth only 4% of their current value. That's how I understand it and what has happened at AG over the years. Only b
  15. They might be the oldest, or might not be, they are not the oldest league club but there is no doubt, they are the shittiest league club to have ever used the title of Bristol in their name. Whether they were in Bristol at a rented ground, in Bath at a rented ground, or in a rugby ground which now resembles their first home at Eastville with it's conglomeration of disjointed structures, they are still a shitty club.
