  1. Fam's first touch has been so much better in the last few games. He's beginning to look sophisticated rather than agricultural!
  2. Fascinating to see what the younger generation consider to be legends. As you say, it’s subjective. However, though even I’m too young to have watched Atyeo, you can’t leave him out. Or Wedlock to be fair. Oh, and you’ve got the wrong Taylor!
  3. I didn't listen to it, but we know that the majority on OTIB just have a fixed dislike for him because he's an administrator and a "suit", so are just looking for reasons to slate him. Every utterance will be twisted and looked at under the microscope to find a negative slant. Personally I have no strong feelings about him either way.
  4. Are you prepared to fund the difference in salaries ?
  5. Media sources (Telegraph via Sky) suggesting big Frank will be sacked today!
  6. Don’t forget the aqueducts.
  7. And Hughton proving he would have been a waste of money with a 5-1 thrashing for Forest.
  8. You quoted me saying it wasn’t a sure financial investment then talked about a charitable donation. It’s neither. It’s an investment that may or may not work out and he’s taking a risk because he can afford to. It’s not cynical nest feathering as implied by others. It’s akin to a man who builds an extension to his own house - it should add value but it improves the asset while he owns it too.
  9. I was there in the late sixties too and I think you’re suffering from a fit of nostalgia. What exactly is Lansdown doing wrong compared with Harry Dolman? I think the similarities between them as owners are obvious.
  10. The one argument on here that makes no sense is that SL is “feathering his nest” by owning Bristol City/Bristol Sport. We can sensibly debate how successful a club owner he is. But to suggest that a man who is worth £1-2 billion is likely to make more by selling HL shares and spending the proceeds on subsidising a football team is a bit questionable. Yes it can be seen as a vanity project. More charitably it be seen as giving something back to the community. If he’s lucky he may get his money back by creating a sporting group with good facilities that he can sell. But to suggest the
  11. Why, because they’re being so polite about us?
  12. Well yes, I assume that transfer fees are amortised over the length of the contract (just guessing) so will continue at similar levels. And of course if we have bought players for fees but sold none, or less, then transfer fees could be negative rather than neutral, aside from what I expect will be increased day to day losses.
  13. Since the 19/20 operating loss is £35M, before any Covid impact, then surely £33-35M for 20/21 has to be very optimistic? It implies Covid won’t add to the losses at all, which seems unrealistic.
  14. Now TV is owned by Sky and is a way of watching Sky content without satellite dish or cable. Being rural and hating dishes, I’ve recently signed up to it for the first time, usually using smart tv.
  15. Seems to be very highly rated by Burnley fans if you look at their forum. Most view him as one of their best signings in years.
