  1. Bear in mind that although hugely wealthy, someone like this has an uncomfortable percentage of their means tied up in one company. He may need £100M for something. On the other hand he may simply be risk managing his portfolio of assets - like a lot of other investors - by getting a proportion out into cash. This would protect him in case we have another huge market correction, or even a 1929 Wall Street Crash scenario. I'm sure all of us with a pension fund in unit trusts are going through similar thought processes.
  2. This David Thomas from their Supporters Club doesn't seem to understand limited companies. Why does he say this guy would lose his personal home and be personally liable for the debts of the business?
  3. It's actually less serious than flu in itself ... it's the lack of protection that is the issue.
  4. Why? Surely a lot easier to treat it as null and void, rather than try to finish it in the autumn and start again immediately?
  5. Nobody who saw him could forget Gus Caesar, surely? Worst player I ever saw - made Bas look sure footed and confident on the ball.
  6. Oh well. I thought Benkovic looked commanding in the air and cool on the ball.
  7. Eating KFC? Clearly insane.
  8. The only way to remember what I’d forgotten was to Google it. Harpal Singh on loan from Leeds. Apparently.
  9. “Tonight I believe” ”Nagy and Massengo” ”Are we suffering from too many changes in the central area?”
  10. “Wrap out tit in” is a new phrase to me! Usually I can decipher typos ... but this one has me beat.
  11. I suspect most people these days have a basic idea what yin and yang is about. It’s pretty widely used. Those that mock this - and, often, any other non English phrase, with Del Boy quotes - are just showing up their ignorance. As indeed are the press boys by spelling it as ying and yang.
  12. As a general comment I completely agree that far too many fouls are given when two players simply collide. I know intent isn’t necessary for a foul, but, for example, when two players both stretch for the ball and miss, but they have a clash of feet/legs, how do you decide that one is to blame and which? There is far too much assumption that if two players bump into each other, that the one who hits the deck has been fouled. However, in this case the player that went down clearly didn’t dive. The impact knocked him off balance and he wasn’t anticipating it at all IMHO.
  13. And - being old - I’ve only just noticed that an eighteen year old can get a season ticket for £99. That’s bloody cheap.
  14. Sounds like a cue for a sea shanty ...
  15. Let’s face it, we’ve had some horrible shirts over the years. Combining then to summarise our history ....
  16. Yes, but I can’t see their fans going for vegan food!
  17. Materials? I think it would look great with a stone finish but horrible in bare concrete.
  18. And then call it “New Meadowlands”! Classic.
  19. Though that’s exactly how I imagine a Rovers board meeting.
  20. Oscar’s article seems full of trivialities to me. It feels like a nostalgic view of something he never knew. I’m 63 and have no illusions about how crap the old Ashton Gate was and how much better the new one is. I remember how impressed I was when the Dolman Stand was built and it took us nearly 50 years to bring the rest up to scratch. I love old architecture, but the East End and old Williams Stand were abysmal structures.
  21. It certainly isn’t standard. The first ten minutes was far louder than I have heard for months. That’s from the Atyeo end of the Lansdown.
  22. “Heavens to Betsy” is - or was - a well known mild American expression of surprise. Nobody knows for sure where it came from. Probably 19th century but all theories about it have been debunked so far.
  23. I wouldn’t, given we have brought him in for height, and Birmingham pose an aerial threat through Jutkiewicz.
  24. Yes, it’s much easier to idolise new signings before they start actually playing and looking ordinary!
  25. So, in theory, you could buy bristolrovers.co.uk cheaply and just populate it with a picture of a tumbledown shed in a ploughed field? No, silly me, that would be an upgrade. Tuvalu.
