  1. Derek McInness is perhaps the one appointment that should have worked a lot better than it did? A dynamic, young ambitious manager who had at least some management experience at a decent level (yeah Scotland but...) and he's certainly done well since, Aberdeen are never going to consisently challenge the big 2 but he consistently gets them to 3rd place, or 2nd when Rangers were out of the picture and even won the League cup. First season he did well to keep us up but second season was a disaster. What went wrong?
  2. And probably the Wycombe side as well. That is a very good point, yes the injuries have been bad but what's left should still be able to compete with Rotherham, Milwall, Luton and Wycombe and we've taken 3 points from 12 against these, with Wycombe unlucky not to get a point.
  3. I disagree that SL doesn't want Premier League. It's the only way he's ever going to make money from the football side, at present the other sides of it probably aren't even close to covering the football losses. Especially given the spending on the stadium and training ground. That may change with the Arena and Sporting Quarter but that's not for a few years yet. Also he doesn't need to spend big if we ever get there - just follow the Burnley / WBA route and accept a yo-yo existentence. Conversely he could spend massively if he wanted as the income at Premier League level would make FFP
  4. Without looking it up I genuinely don't know what his 'real' position is, has he ever played for us in that position? Quite remarkable how he's been used and deserves huge praise for slotting in wherever and whenever needed. Can he play in goal?
  5. As I said elsewhere, what would the expectation be had Chris Hughton been appointed? Why should it be any less given that Holden was apparently the better candidate?
  6. I think the question to ask is what would have been the expectation had Houghton been appointed? Top 6 surely. Given that it was decided over the course of the interview process that Holden was a better candidate than Hughton, then the expectation should be the same.
  7. Joe Jordan stays instead of going to Hearts and Bob Taylor doesn't then get flogged to WBA. I think that team with the 2 flying wingers could have got to Division One with a couple of additions. Jimmy Lumsden is still my least favourite manager
  8. Special request for Bristol Rovers FC this evening https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCrvxPUXsCo and RIP for Paul Raymond, Paul 'Tonka' Chapman and the inimitable Pete Way
  9. University freshers week display complete with whiteboard that looked like it had been coloured in by a 5 year old. Open top bus parade along deserted streets to celebrate finishing 2nd in the Conference.
  10. Yet they still managed to beat the Gas!
  11. Err.. I was talking about the Gas! Sadly I can't see FGR's attendances ever being higher than the Gas. Even more sadly I don't think FGRs attendances at the new stadium will be any higher than they are in Nailsworth. At least after the novelty wears off. It will be 8 miles from the existing core supporter base and the support for the move is far from universal.
  12. It will be interesting if and when restrictions are removed this season, to see how their attendances compare to Plymouth and Swindon. Guaranteed that Plymouth would be higher home and away, Swindon would be closer. 4th biggest club in the West Country anyone?
  13. Bristol City managed to get relegated on my 50th birthday, 16th April 2013. You couldn't make it up....
  14. Fair play, the guy looks like he should be the lead singer in Nickelback (and that's not a compliment) but that's a very good summary.
  15. We've replaced David Brent with Gareth Keenan (or Michael Scott with Dwight Schrute for fans of The Office US)....
