  1. Global audiences and TV coverage are what they want. Consider this, the NFL has started to have regular games played in the UK now. The regular season for NFL is 16 games, so that's 8 home games, 8 away games, so if your team has to play abroad in London England, you lose 12.5% of your home games to watch!

    top flight football followers are not needed any more?

    Looking at the Prem league for the last few seasons, it is clear that there is a gulf between the top 6 to 8 teams and then the also rans. I hope one day that they create a Euro League and the top 6 mega rich can bugger off, and they can have the TV money too. I would be more than happy just watching competitive domestic football.

    Bolton Wanderers v Bristol City Match Day 2

    Nathan Baker is too over rated imho. Very soft for a big defender.

    Taylor Moore injury

    How about Lloyd Kelly? No mention of injury and he hasn't featured in a lot of the preseason games

    Newport County v Bristol City

    So thinking of Newport, I was wondering about McCoulsky. Is there any news on his health? Is it something that can be managed or his is playing career over?

    Goodbye Gustav Engvall (Merged)

    So is Engvall leaving official or not? Taking a Robbered's stance on the matter, I have not seen anything official posted on the web site. Since this notice, we have posted about Weimann, Vyner and Adelakun but nothing about Engvall. Do they want the whole sorry matter to just fade away in our memories or do they feel that Engvall is not worth the page space and publicity?

    What is the minimum fee we would accept for Bobby

    I reckon a fair value is 6-7 million, rising to 9 with incentives, and a good sell on clause. I would take this for Bobby and the same for Joe. I would also try to use the current squad and youngsters to fill the voids rather than buying replacements.

    Is this the true definition of PROGRESS?

    Many base our 'progress' upon our poor run in form in the second half of the season; because it was poor many seem to suggest we have not made progress. It's very frustrating that our season was two very distinct halves, before and after Christmas. Had City been bang 'average' throughout the entire season, never in the relegation zone, never in the promotion zone, then many might consider that we have made progress, being in a mid to high table position and free from a relegation scrap with a reasonable amount of games left. Also being bang average, our Jan signings may not be so poorly thought of (although I am not saying our thoughts of Kent and Diony are without foundation; for me Walsh still has potential). So how do we progress next year? For me consistency would be progress, although we hope to be consistently good to excellent, and not poor to dismal. Now, I would happily settle for consistent performances, mid to high table placing, sneaking into 5th or 6th playoff spot.

    Why have we stopped winning games?

    Maybe at the start of the season, our high press, high energy style caught a few teams out and weren't prepared for that style of game; hence we accumulated a lot of points early in the season. Now teams know what to expect and set up to counter the high press energy game, so LJ is trying to tweak our style of play again, in reaction to the opposition. Maybe now that we are playing the teams for the second time in the back half of the season, we are not picking up the points as easy.

    Our transfer policy is FAILING us

    Thank you

    Our transfer policy is FAILING us

    Works for me - remember, it's a choice to pay for a season ticket, not a demand.

    Our transfer policy is FAILING us

    So fans that believe in the long term plan are derided by you as happy clappers but those that don't believe in the plan get the generalized term of realists. How about a term for you guys as rock dwellers because you only seem to come out when things go your way. Rather be a happy clapper that a misarable pessimistic rock dweller.

    Garry Monk

    Are Brum currently paying 3 mangers salaries? Redknapp, Cotts and now Monk?

    Interesting talk at Senior Reds today

    No, I think you're correct, Tomlin was our fattest player last year with or without the ball.

    Was it a penalty

    Something else I thought was interesting regarding this incident, did anyone see at the final whistle Flint and Jerome talk to each other but the first thing they done was pull their shirts over their mouths so as to avoid any lip reading! Flint probably conceding that it was a foul.
