    Martin “Mad Dog” Allen

    and lets not forget Stuart Nelson making his "forcefield" around his goal when facing a penalty for us when he played for Mad Dog at Brentford. Always rated him. Now at Yeovil - on his way to Chesterfield sometime in the future? Allen is a top bloke and true character - among many other things chucking his tie on the pitch at Brentford and bog-snorkelling to raise money for Charity!

    AdamB/Beanhead made redundant

    "Bonded warehouse"?

    Mark Ashton.

    Mate you might want to choose another word for him if the Adam Baker story is true?

    Oh Dear

    Bit unfair on our players mate. Joe Bryan certainly for one. Must be a Guardian reader?

    Oh Dear

    Can't see how this is old mate (2 days?) and implications for our Club determine our future and stretch off to the far distant horizon and beyond. Can SL achieve what he says he wants in my lifetime .......................................

    Oh Dear

    Well put mate. However much you go over the syntax the message that comes across, from the pompous suit that is MA, is clear. I can't see how this didn't have a significant effect on the players' morale, especially after killing themselves playing the high-pressing game that did us so well. More than a kick in the teeth and I imagine the better players, that might be in demand, might have said "sod this, I'm off if I get the chance". It's obvious you cannot control the timing of promotion from this toughest of Leagues (which is the other thing you could read into the Ashton remark), so when you get the chance you have to go for it, especially as this is what SL supposedly wants. Accountancy is different from football but I imagine that on the way to accruing 2 billion (?) you don't turn down a golden opportunity if there is a reasonable chance of landing it. Let's all keep things nice a cosy with Lee.

    What is the minimum fee we would accept for Bobby

    Thing is mate Bobby is a far better footballer than Kodjia

    Lee Miller

    IMHO too much is made of that miss by Lee Miller - quite a sharp chance actually - when you consider other very impressive things he did - for me his headed goal from a corner at Grimsby Town, where the win took us to the top of the League with 10 straight wins, stands out. Also you can see from the highlights that Craig Woodman (another bandwagon whipping boy, as was Miller, for some fans) was a cultured left back., attacking as well as defending. Saw him snuff Izale McLeod, at the time one of the most dangerous players in League 1, right out of the game at MK Dons. Unfortunately it seems Tinman didn't like him

    Congratulations to Neil Warnock

    Unfortunately for us mugs tied with the umbilical cord to Bristol City FC the people in charge of our Club are too chicken shit to ever appoint a forceful, truly successful person like Warnock who has been there and done it over and over. We're too cosy. too nepotistic, too frightened of the fundamental change needed at Ashton Gate
  11. Kelly backs off and backs off to give Clarke best possible position for his shot for the first. Reid, Pack and Brownhill all clustered around Fleck, none of them put a foot in to stop his sublime pass to ***t Sharp for the second, Frankie makes a complete balls-up for the third. If we 're not interested in the Premiership, please Steve can we at least have a proper goalie?

    Known throughout Football as "the Club that always bottles it"

    Interesting points to come out of our discussion so far mates. Can I broaden out the debate please and ask you why BCFC is not known? Why have we only had a brief spell at the highest level in our history. Can you suggest how, with all we should have going for us, BCFC might stop bumbling along as we do?

    Ah there you have it. People can have different ideas, how enlightened. What's a fascist?

    Now you are talking. George's. What a delight it was to walk around Bristol Bridge and enjoy the delightful odours coming from the Brewery

    Were he still alive Dave Mackay might disagree with you. I say again. They have been in the Premiership
