  1. Seems to be alright, PL said after the match that he lost feeling in his arm straight after the impact and couldn’t throw the ball. It was a hell of a shoulder barge though wasn’t it so hardly surprising
  2. Nigel must be tearing his hair out. I thought he demanded a ‘performance’ from what I saw in a pre match interview. This is what the players think of him. Absolute shambles, I’d clear just about all of them out.
  3. Ref certainly didn’t instantly react. Very hard to decide on the angles shown, guess the assistant from a side view saw it clearer
  4. Touch or not, why jump like that and take the risk?
  5. He did. Lansbury walked away initially to talk to assistant, Ref called him back and red shown for sure
  6. Don’t get me wrong, I’m no fan in particular. I just wanted to mention that he didn’t just appear from nowhere, he had previously wormed his way in
  7. Ashton was involved as a consultant re our Academy status a couple of years before he was appointed CEO. He wasn’t totally unknown to us.
  8. Huge turning point for the club I feel. I also think that it can only mean either a massive high or a massive low. I cannot see any middle ground outcome here.
  9. And longer than 12 months!
  10. I wish I could disagree with you about at least something, but I can’t. As far back as Coppell something wasn’t right, he just walked away and we never really knew the reasons for sure. I don’t think Pearson will go quietly, if he doesn’t stay. He is already giving snippets in interviews and leaving us with an impression of the mess the club is in. I think he will be professional. He won’t disgrace himself publically but certainly send out shockwaves to the football rumourmill and I doubt if we will attract his like again if damage is done.
  11. Maybe not in normal times, no. But these are of course exceptional times and we’ve all had to adapt to the ways we work. My son was interviewed over Zoom for a job at a company he hadn’t previously had dealings with, so all new to him. He was offered the job and accepted the post. The first time he met his Boss face to face or stepped foot in the building was on his first day. And although he isn’t a football manager, his job is a quite important career move, certainly not casual work. So yes Zoom employment does happen now. Also I would like to point out that a football Manager has quite
  12. Agreed. I was really surprised to see Hunt banished totally, think we shot ourself in the foot there. I can only guess, and it’s a total guess, that Hunt hit back verbally when told a few things. But to start an unfit and out of form Rowe was the wrong decision.
  13. It is frustrating sitting at home, distanced from it all and watching it all unfold and crumble and not really feel part of it. We can’t blame Covid, this was going to happen sooner or later as we have limped on for seasons whilst other similar teams have overtaken us. I don’t want to be in a toxic Ashton Gate, but I feel so detached. Hard to feel the love for my club at the moment. In normal times I would have travelled to the game today, instead I worked and finished in time to watch it on tv, and I wasn’t even bothered if I did miss it. I’m sure if we were at AG we would be suppo
  14. There are quite a few clubs without managers at the moment, that’s my worry. Hard to reason why he would want to stay here unless he really has free reign and a substantial financial package both for the team rebuild and personally. There are more attractive jobs out there for him. So,say he bails. How attractive would we look to anyone else, I shudder at the prospect. I really do not want to see our two assistants take over, or anyone similar. Nigel was refreshingly honest in his interview, probably too honest for SteveL, MarkA etc but it had to be said. Sheffield W will be interes

    @Harry GK : Bentley, O'Leary, Wollocott FB : Dasilva, Pring CB : Kalas, Vyner, Moore CM : Nagy, Bakinson, Williams, Massengo, AM/W : O'Dowda, Palmer, Semenyo ST : Wells, Martin I would keep Weimann from your discard list, I think we have really missed him. I know he doesn’t often add goals but we need a player who will run till he drops and apart from his season long injury he previously had a good availability record. From your keep list I would,in an idea world, ditch Taylor Moore, he’s been here years and cannot cement regular starts, no manager seems to really fanc
  16. Isn’t that down to discrimination? I remember something about a case where it was argued that people with disabilities should be treated equally and on par with everyone else. It was argreed that rightly so, that’s obviously how it should be. Then it was mentioned that the price they were charged should not be discounted, if they really wanted to be equal. Therefore they are charged the same as any other fan/customer but clubs and venues allow free or discounted carers on the understanding they are needed, so infact working for the person with disability who wouldn’t otherwise be able to
  17. Totally shocked by this. Hard to grasp that someone can be regularly playing sport and now gone. Deepest condolences to his family and friends. RIP
  18. Maybe you could suggest a new title for this thread and I can edit it? You have appeared to have accidentally stumbled onto something which not clear enough to avoid and you have no interest or meaningful contribution to it?
  19. Yes, that’s the person I think.
  20. Pat has got them running through walls, they will do anything for him as they respect him so much. His people skills are amazing, the players really don’t want to fail him.
  21. I’m just watching the build up to the Bears match. They said the top sports psychologist ( didn’t catch his name) who had previously worked with Alex Ferguson had been working with the Bears as they had been working at BCFC.
  22. Agreed, poorly worded when I read it back. Unbalanced squad, largely though injury I guess I meant. Although we were unbalanced by having a load of players in one position and none in another sometimes.
  23. He must like a challenge! Let him have a say over transfers, see who he attracts and what he gets out of them. Maybe some of the players now realise they might not be part of his plans. He inherited a right mixture of unbalanced and injured players and hasn’t been able to put ‘his’ team out yet.
  24. They don’t seem to be on the same wavelength in some games. I don’t know if what they have been preparing all week in training suddenly is irrelevant or they just fail to carry it out? In most games if things aren’t going right players go into hiding and more and more lump it up happens due to desperation. We don’t like playing against players who rough us up, we need to get tougher and game smarter.
