    Lee Johnson is full of shit.

    It's some posters that are full of shit not LJ. We're gonna end up with nearly 70 points this season and get within 2 wins or so of play-offs. Obviously anyone who can't see that this is a drastic improvement either was in a coma for the last 2 seasons or is just an idiot!! Looking forward to giving it another go next season. Onwards and upwards!

    Whether the game going ahead is right or wrong from a fans point of view is a matter for debate. However from the clubs perspective it's a no brainer. The obvious advantages to the club are: SWFC team would have had an arduous and probably slow journey down to Bristol today. Probably haven't trained on grass/Astro since arrival. SWFC are unlikely to have many fans at the game - would you risk it in their position? Probably not. Their current form is poor. They have players out injured who may be available for a rearranged fixture. We can get back into the top 6 if we win. BCFC save money by using food/drink/programmes/staff that they've already shelled out for. They get to show off new undersoil heating. If this game goes ahead then any game can/will. I guess we'll see how this pans out in the next few hours.

    Think the club need to call this one off now. The snow is piling up as I write and there's no way that the roads and pavements around the ground will be cleared before Sat pm. Buses unlikely to run either because although the roads may be clear, the lay-bys and stops they use will be hazardous. A late call off is the last thing the club needs with all this season ticket business rumbling on in the background!!

    Who was Yessir?

    Of course players/staff read the forum - you would wouldn't you. It's human nature, they're gonna be curious about what's being said about them or their mates. Doubt any would post though. It would be too easy to give yourself away and if they were 'outed' as a poster, OTIB would go into full meltdown mode. I get the impression that when LJ talks about the abuse he got during that bad run last season he's mostly referring to the stuff that was being posted on here!!

    Fairly happy with a point.

    Bit harsh Super Bob. No need for this personal stuff. This is a forum isn't it? Fair enough, you don't agree with the OP but this response seems a little OTT to me.

    Isn't there a clause in the upgrade of AG that would activate a residents parking zone if there are a certain number of big crowds in a certain period? Club might be looking to avoid this by keeping the away end half empty.

    Scam parking tickets at Forest match?

    I parked here and didn't get a ticket. Think the parking charges only apply if you're in a bay? There's always parking there by the roadside and I've never had any problems with this.

    Ashton Gate railway station opening consultation on Wednesday

    Most of this should be in the politics forum!

    Lansdown about to talk on talksport

    Can they put a basketball arena on Wickes site for Flyers? Would make sense and from what I've heard the basketball has got a good following and is a good night out!

    QPR face world record £40 million fine

    I don't think they'd pay regardless of how much money they've got. At the end of the day QPR means nothing to them and was just a trinket and vanity project for them. I doubt they're that involved now and would expect that owning a mediocre championship club is not high on their agenda!!

    QPR face world record £40 million fine

    They couldn't and wouldn't pay this fine anyway. Relegation/points deduction seems most likely outcome.

    Stormy Weather Forecast for Leeds Match

    Forecasts are looking seriously bad for Saturday! Thinking that this could be postponed due to dangerous conditions around the stadium. Seem to remember games being called off before for this reason. Hope call is made early if this is the case.

    Palpable error. Bookies can void your bet and claim the offer was a mistake. You get your stake back but the bet's off.

    Agree with this. I'm on it too. May not happen but seriously overpriced.

    In the Courts

    The case was always going to go to Crown Court. Not entering a plea at this stage suggests to me that Tomlin is probably looking to either suggest a 'basis of plea' - where the charge is accepted but on the basis that something may have happened to provoke him perhaps? Or else he may be willing to plead guilty to a lesser charge like ABH which would attract a lighter sentence. Either way, assuming he admits/is convicted, he's looking at time - although anything under 2 years can be suspended.
