  1. Well... Bentley - yep and probably the only player worth more than we paid for him. Kalas - adequate, but at least 50% loss of value Moore - love the guy, solid but prone to horrendous errors Dasilva - Worrying injuries and risk of being targeted due to size, high ball behind Williams - unknown but disastrous start Walsh - Unknown ...after 3-4 years! O’Dowda - Don’t get me started!!!! Paterson - More miss than hit Palmer - As above Martin - Would have been useful 5 years ago Vyner - decent but needs to make a position his own.
  2. Read and weep. Compare that to Cotts squad. If that’s 5 years ‘progress’, supposedly building on Cotts foundations, then I’m mighty glad I didn’t employ him as my CEO. What I don’t get is why an astute businessman like Steve has allowed this to happen. Three years ago any wise person could see what was happening and several posters on here commented as such.
  3. Yep...and don’t we all know some of those!
  4. You know when you wake up and your brain scans the memory for things to start the day off - good or bad? Today started a good day.
  5. Frankly, I’ve asked the same of 8th/7th of our squad all season......
  6. Chuckle................snooooort. If Carling made relegation nights....
  7. Sky News Flash: Bristol Rovers bid to replace Barcelona in the European Super League following their exit from Division 1 of the English Football League.
  8. Shockingly good. Almost unnoticed, laid their season’s foundations on a bed of sand to near guarantee failure. Tremendous effort.
  9. Find it hard to believe that replacing a ramp with steps is a good health and safety idea with thousands pouring out of the stadium over a short duration. Bonkers in fact. Such short memories.
  10. Ummm.... never been Fammy’s greatest fan, but to say £0.0 is a fair price for him is questionable, even in my mind. Then you add Pato, again very hit and miss, ..but £0.0 value? Assume Bakes will be going soon as well at £0.0. That’s about £10 million of players to zero value in a few years. Now hopefully the likes of CoD, who Ashton very successfully negotiated a renewed contract with, I assume, on the basis of the single goal at Norwich scored sometime in 1909, will soon be worth about £10 million. That could go to off set the losses on these 3 players or will go some way to compensate
  11. Brave, courageous, skilful, expansive, attacking football not seen with England since the demolition of Germany and not at the Gate for over 4 years. What do we expect when England employ yet another ‘blazer’ and City go and employ two England FA Coaches following on from Lee ‘coaching manual’ Johnson’s tenure. Crab football, thankfully, has seen its day. Let’s hope Pearson was watching and that’s his brand of football.
  12. The problem is Steve Lansdown’s whole model was/is based on recruitment. If the foundations of that model are built on sand it eventually collapses - as it has done. Ashton was responsible for recruitment - as I understand it, his Analysts, his Scouts, his Shortlists. After 5 years, we’re a mess on the playing side. A complete, utter mess. You then add in - again as I understand it - his fitness gurus, his medical team, his coaches and the Club’s across the board performance is, frankly, dire. You then think this really should have been our ‘golden era’... new stadium bounce,
  13. Assume it was Ashton who decided that a major root and branch upheaval was required to Cotts legacy whereas a bit of judicious pruning was only required. He’s created a monster in his name now. The hard infrastructure maybe is now in place, for which others no doubt played a far greater role in delivery, the playing side for which Ashton is responsible - and that’s the entire set up - is as bad as I can remember.
  14. To a degree I get the results concern. However, the reason I’m impressed by Pearson is within a month he identified all the key issues on the playing side of the Club that have held us back since Cotts left. These issues are not quick-fix. They are ingrained at the Club, from the very topped have spread throughout the playing and support staff - some of whom, I suspect, are not fit-for-purpose for a Championship Club with aspirations for Premier League status. Does he have the solutions? Don’t know, but I suspect more likely to have them than most.
  15. One of the causations I thought of too, but then I’ve heard no reports of hamstrings to opposition players. I assume they would be more vulnerable on a hard pitch, if they were used to soft ones. Just come to the conclusion that it is our training regimes and medics.
