  1. 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.
  2. BBC Radio Derby

    Nothing will happen tomorrow to Tomlin. If he's up for GBH the case will need to be sentenced (or tried) at Leicester Crown Court in a few weeks/months time.
  3. Quality or quantity

    A lot of posters on this forum don't seem to grasp the realities of our current situation. The OP bemoans the lack of an 'unproven championship record' but fails to grasp that players with 'proven championship records' will be 1- prohibitively expensive and 2- unlikely to consider a sideways/backwards move to another championship club. In my opinion the strategy we have adopted (buying players who are likely to develop) is the right one and is in fact the ONLY one available to us given that we don't have a bottomless pit of money and lack the finances of many of our competitors with their parachute payments and egotistical foreign owners.
  4. City Spending 149% of Turnover on Staff

    That figure is 15/16. Our average attendance then was 4.5k less than last season and bars/corporate facilities were a shadow of what they are now. Will be well down that list next season.
  5. What's your punt?

    I got us to win the Championship at 75-1 a couple of days ago on Betfair (exchange). Currently at 65-1 if anyone's interested!!
  6. Sky Super 6 OTIB league

    I'll have some of this.
  7. The new training kit (Merged again)

    Pisano's got three arms!! Should be in goal perhaps?
  8. Best Tannoy Announcement Ever

    After that announcement went out I got into conversation with a steward in the lansdown concourse about how anyone could be that stupid. We were interrupted by a grey haired gentlemen who asked to be let out to sort out his car! To say he had a panicked look about him would be an understatement!!
  9. Season Card renewal (Merged)

    Have just bought ticket in family area for £372 with free ticket for little un but friend has done same and has been charged an extra £50 for the kids ticket cos he's an OAP. That can't be right? Can it? Anyone know differently?
  10. Steve Lansdown

    Calm down ffs. If you've supported this club for 33 years as you claim you'd have seen worse times than this!! As long as we've got the backing that Steve L gives us, this club will not fail in the long term. Even if we go down we can pick off the others at that level like we did last time. The (long term) future is not in doubt as far as I'm concerned.
  11. LJ poll

    This run alone is grounds for dismissal - simple as. The rest is just waffle.
  12. The Business Plan

    I don't see the Rugby as a rival to football in any way. Having the two sports at the stadium makes sense and keeps down the relative costs to both clubs. I did hear that SL also wants to locate the Flyers basketball closer to AG. Current Wickes site (?) The costs of Rugby are kept in check in any event by a wage cap, so the possibility of a massive cash splurge on Bristol Rugby (at the expense of BCFC) is virtually nil.
  13. Can LJ be trusted to spend wisely in the next window

    We're a lot better off than we were this time last year and the players we have signed look mostly decent. The team is not too far away from the majority of our opponents, which was not the case 12 months ago! Many on this forum have seriously unrealistic expectations. This league is tough and the recent run, although painful to watch at times, has illustrated the areas that need strengthening. Confident that LJ will sort out these weaknesses and this team will kick on in the longer term. Nothing to be gained by getting rid.
  14. Euro 2016 thread

    Unbelievable. Made to look like total ****s again. Starting to hate Europe now!!
  15. EU poll

    Given the usual nature of the comments posted on political threads on this forum - would predict a landslide for leave. Fortunately for the rest of us though, this forum is not even close to representative of the U.K as a whole!!
