  1. You will note that I have refrained from editing it to illustrate the sin of hubris.
  2. Does he not realise that a corporate legal entity is singular and so it should be: "Bristocl City fully supports a Championship salary cap." The man is a buffoon.
  3. I always wanted to see how Neil would do as manager here but I think his age is now against him in that regard and retirement beckons. I hope that he shakes this off, ends on a high, and has a long, healthy and happy retirement.
  4. No crowds no buzz. I saw clips from the two Charity Shield games, men and women, and they both looked like training games rather than the big event that they usually are. Football is primarily a spectator sport and when you strip away the crowds you no longer have football as we have known it. That's why a standard league punishment for failure to control a crowd is to play games behind closed doors; because it ruins the game.
  5. Yes, that wasn't quite the announced narrative.
  6. Yes he was, or some other accident which really put his career back. It's more that as @LondonBristolian said it is more common for really bright prospects to go nowhere than for them all to turn into top class players. I can only offhand think of the half dozen Man Utd players who came through at about the same time in the early 90s as the exception to this. Just to credit the lad in the OP it is great that he is playing sufficiently well at this age to have attracted premiership scouts but with incredibly rare exceptions (Rooney, Maradona) they remain simply very good prospects at
  7. And Kevin Amanwaah. The headline was "Arsenal and United declare Waah!" It's all paper talk. Marvin Brown was the new Gazza / Cryuff if you believed the papers. All that they can be at that age is "promising" as there is a long way to go before they can cut it in the first team. To take another club's "nearly great" player you have Everton's Billy Kenny who was their biggest star young player before Rooney. https://taleoftwohalves.uk/columnist/billy-kenny-waste-talent Or Sonny Pike, snapped up as a kid by Ajax and featured on Fantasy Football League.
  8. It's because we have been at the current level for most of our history; the Lansdowns' millions have not propelled us into a historically unusual position. Sure lots of money has been poured into the club but as this has also happened to the clubs around us it has simply enabled us to treadwater rather than rise to a historically anomalous position. Clubs have always risen or fallen because of good managers or squads - Liverpool under Shankly, Forest under Clough and Taylor, Man Utd under Ferguson, Yeovil in their rise to the Championship - but when a club is propelled to a position
  9. I don't think most clubs are. Throughout our history we have been mainly Div 2 so there is nothing artificial / plastic about our being there now even if we have very wealthy owners. Wigan spent most of its history in non-league until Dave Whelan started to pump the money in twenty years ago. That's your plastic club.
  10. Fair point. It was that I remember their success coinciding with the burst of enthusiasm for football following Italia Gazza 90 and several people I knew with no prior interest in football adopted a football club with a few picking Blackburn owing to their recent success and that they liked the kit.
  11. After I was first horrified by it I was determined that other should suffer as I had!
  12. A parvenu club whose league position that is not the product of a hundred years of support from the community in which the club resides but instead has been purchased by wealthy owners and so attracts in plastic fans who wish to participate in this success in the manner of real fans but have no family history of support and never went before they were successful. Wigan, Bournemouth, Blackburn.
  13. Good Lord. Well you've had a good run of nearly fifty years with the worst football song Rod but all things must change and the baton passes to Reading. One last outing for your meisterwork; subtitled Possibly the worst song of all time. No longer.
