  1. 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!!
  2. 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.
  3. 20k+

    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.
  4. 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.
  5. Ashton Gate railway station opening consultation on Wednesday

    Most of this should be in the politics forum!
  6. 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!
  7. 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!!
  8. QPR face world record £40 million fine

    They couldn't and wouldn't pay this fine anyway. Relegation/points deduction seems most likely outcome.
  9. 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.
  10. Betting Opportunity

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

    Agree with this. I'm on it too. May not happen but seriously overpriced.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
