  1. FFS why bother replying then?
  2. Chatting before yesterday's game we were looking at likely managerial movements in the Premier League and whether LJ would be in contention. If Southampton get rid after Friday would LJ be on their radar; perhaps not, big Sam to the rescue to keep them up? If Silva get's binned by Everton I don't think LJ would be in contention for that but Howe and Dyche might be which could open the door at Bournemouth or Burnley. LJ's credentials, if only on paper, look impressive: 18th > 17th > 11th > 8th and currently 6th in Championship and a massive profit on transfers. Bournemouth or Burnley could easily double his salary and give him a 3 year contract - that's the equivalent of 6 years guaranteed money at the same level he is at now. I think I know what I would do in his shoes! He'd go with SL's blessing [cue another press conference with Chairman and departing manager -like when his dad left] and probably in the knowledge that the door would be left open for him to return at some point in the future. So the question is does LJ have ambition or does probably the safest job in football hold more appeal? Discuss
  3. I was wondering what track accompanied the video montage too and with some help from a younger person than me can advise it is Galvanize by Chemical Brothers. Good video and the track makes it . Villa did something similar when I occasionally watched them in the past
  4. Nope - I was suggesting a season long loan with an option to buy next summer if his goals took us up. Prefer him over Wickham and Rhodes any day
  5. If we're paying £3M for a loan that's like £60k per week. Are we paying his wages too? Personally I'd take that sort of hit on Gayle's wages - at least he is proven.
  6. I'm not an LJ fan for starters. How's he going to motivate the team if, after his quote "I need 5 more players" the next 4 days produces no-one? When he says prior to Saturday's game at St. Andrews, "come on lads I believe in you" it carries something of a hollow tone!!! Two of our best players in pre-season, Szmodics & Eliasson don't make the starting 11 yet a player who wants away does - baffling
  7. Seems a coincidence that the lad's fee is the same as the cost of Kalas. We cant be paying €8M for ANY player without them walking straight into our first X1
  8. We haven't but Bristol Bears have. Lam is a rugby equivalent of Bruce maybe - track record of achievement [and failure]?
  9. Would have preferred O'Leary to stay - don't recall any gaffs from him last season. Bentley had no saves to make of note. He seems quite good at picking the ball out of the back of the net though - 8 times in 2 home games !!!!
  10. “Kasey has made big sacrifices to come here and we truly believe Bristol City and Kasey will be a fantastic match moving forward.” LJ Could somebody tell me the big sacrifices he has made? This isn't Swansea, not the nicest place on the planet. How much did he play for us when he was here. Full season stats which includes elsewhere show only 1172 minutes played - 13 full games. Sorry I'm underwhelmed and if I was Szmodics I'd be feeling a bit ***sed off.
  11. No. Is he going to put a foot in where it hurts / matters for us and jeopardise an alleged £50k per week contract?
  12. Just watched the video. Lots of +ve soundbites and praise for the younger players but no mention of LJ at all - strange?
  13. Totally agree with that viewpoint. It's a bit like this if you applied the same principles in business: Sales guy 40% ahead of budget 2/3rds way through the year. At end of year he has made his budget. Says "I've had a reasonable year boss" who replies "actually you haven't when you look where you were with 4 months to go" - that's us to a t and you could say this applies to the past three seasons.
  14. Seems from other threads that I'm not alone with this view
