  1. Lukaku song thoughts.

    Brenty: "It's a compliment if anything".
  2. Lukaku song thoughts.

    Well Romelu can always communicate his own feelings in person. I suggest the best way of doing this is when the next time he scores a goal he does the 'Helicopter' if he doesn't like it and his normal routine if he does. We can then know and continue merrily with our lives.
  3. Atalanta v Everton

    I think we have what the authorities and corporate people that have taken Football over wanted. A glossy, safe, marketable brand. There's no surprise the atmosphere at games is so passive given it has become a luxury largely only afforded by the comfortable middle aged. Right down to allocated seating the industry has become a consumer product, not a participatory event. These other European and South American countries have not generally had their football flogged on the global market. That makes us incomparable to most of them.
  4. Morning Sir. I just can't believe that. It's my very own "you won't win anything with kids" moment. We've looked solid in what I've seen of us and we then get involved in a 3-3 thriller with six scrappy goals. One question: would you expand on what you mean when you say "the way we play"......? Anyway, there will be no more bold or ridiculous predictions from me. Falsified at the first hurdle
  5. Whether you believe in the manager or not...

    Actions, or in football results speak louder than words. We've just taken four points from Reading and Wolves away. It is not ott or reactionary to be positive about that in the same way that it is not ott or to be reactionary in being critical after a disappointing point and poor game at home verses Millwall and a less than pro-active point at home verses Aston Villa. Brentford was crap and people said it was crap. What is there to belittle people who are really only calling it as they see it? One game at a time and all that. . . .
  6. It was definately called in jest! It was basically a caveat to cover my own ass. An each-way bet. I thought we'd be in their faces and difficult to break down and lose 1-0. Knowing City as I do, I can always rely on them to let me down. In this case by getting a positive result!
  7. I was actually expecting a little bit of stick for getting it so wrong!! Sometimes, all there is left to do is laugh But well done LJ, the lads and the travelling support. This pre-season sceptic is slowly turning.
  8. Maybe the better thread title would have been 'Have we started better than you expected?' or 'Rate the first six games'. I think it's sensible enough to be tentatively discussing that.
  9. Well I stand to be corrected but we didn't create much verses Villa and Millwall at home. I still can't quite fathom the Barnsley game, I suspect it was a cross between a very bad game for them and a very good one for us. At Brentford we were piss poor and extremely fortunate not to take a hiding, let alone score two goals. Fair play, Bobby's done well but I'm not a huge fan of taking statistics in isolation and using them as evidence, as I've explained in the Q&A thread. How good were these chances? How have the other players measured up in terms of created chances? etc etc. We'll see, I'm basing my assessment largely on intuition.
  10. We seem more solid and hard to beat than we were so I don't think we'll be in a relegation scrap. I predicted 18th and would amend that to 16th after the start we've had, only one defeat is encouraging. A lack of quality between midfield and attack is our main issue. Hopefully Leko can aid that. Diedhiou hasn't been what I hoped he would be. I shall make a bold (and probably quite ridiculous) prediction in that we won't score three again in a single game all season. Que a 3-3 draw tonight!
  11. They really must change midweek games to Wednesdays.
  12. Would Wilson have taken us to the Prem?

    We also had a core of young Bristolians (or at least players through the academy) in Hill, Coles, Doc, Brown, Burnell, Carey, Phillips and that brought its own feel-good factor. Every season was supposed to be our season but ultimately the era flattered to deceive - to state the bleedin' obvious. Would we have stayed up? It's not a sensible question because we were nearly men. IF we had got up we may have done BUT we didn't. Aunties with balls spring to mind (not transsexuals).
  13. Q and A tonight

    As an after thought Super Bob, was Famara Diedhiou brought into discussion at all? Point me to the post if I missed it, or was our record £5.3m signing not mentioned? I've only gone back three pages to look. To be fair, were the tens of millions spent on transfer fees over the last three windows mentioned at all? I stand to be put right if they were.
  14. I'm not a cynic in love at all; I just take pissing about more easily in my stride. Friends with benefits and what have you. Three of my three brothers have established significant others. There maybe, I say maybe, somebody who maybe getting a bit too close. We shall see. What I never quite got is how it all actually happens. How do partners hook up, properly, for real? I foresee the girlies loving this thread.
  15. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    I see our friend from Henbury is addling his own little brain again. On the one hand it was only 'alleged' racist language and on the other "the gentleman in question is from the old school and does not see anything wrong about using the same language that was acceptable in the 1970's". Our friend from Henbury hopes the club will provide him with some education (effectively admitting that it wasn't alleged at all but did actually take place, thus contradicting himself). There's also this bizarre defence that the gentleman in question has done a lot of good works for others - predominantly white, Bristolian R*vers fans by the looks of things. In the mind of our friend from Henbury, philanthropy and racism obviously can not be mutually exclusive.
