  1. Very pleased with this signing. Felt a few years ago we should've gone for him when at Southend but City didn't seem to want to invest in the keeper position in the same way as an outfield player. Can be worth several points a season with a good keeper. Welcome DB.
  2. Thought Millwall were playing some US outfit for a minute there. Can only see a Derby win unfortunately but stranger things have happened. Let’s hope it’s an away win.
  3. Perhaps he should be left to negotiate contracts but not to head or be involved with recruitment. Leave that to DOF?
  4. Interesting team building arranged by the manager, Gary Caldwell - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/46405477 The last paragraph was interesting: "The manager's got a saying - get comfortable being uncomfortable. You have to find ways of coping and dealing with pressures that come along. The army base was certainly uncomfortable but we all found a way to get through every exercise they gave us and we finished it very strongly." A bit different than going to Dubai in the international break!
  5. Yes, the bingo builder. He's signed 40-50 and still trying to find the right combination. More meat for the grinder. He'll be saying this over and over again until SL (eventually) puts him out of our misery! He does seem to be "ready to trade" so who knows what the cat will drag in. Have little confidence we'll up the quality which is what's desperately needed.
  6. I’d agree but just the robin without the BC. Perhaps a surreptitious release to gauge informal opinion when largely decision made? Could be wrong but did cross my mind.
  7. The top image is probably the best of the recent new drafts imo. Very simple and no need for our name or date. I’d have the robin facing right though. Not a fan of the image Magic Man posted. Just too fussy trying to get the name, date, bridge, robin and football in. Can see BS going for something much simpler going by the Bears re-brand anyway. Really hope it’s not something like Concorde though.
  8. Best badges are simple and instantly recognisable like Forest and Wolves. Would be delighted to dump the crest which is for the City of Bristol and not Bristol City (IMO). Updated robin and suspension bridge would be nice as the bridge differentiates us from other clubs with a robin but any decent robin badge without the crest. No need for date either.
  9. I know, Glen, and that’s what’s partly holding us back too imo. If SL’s not willing to come out of his comfort zone, then we need a far more effective and experienced manager who he thinks he can get on with to work within the set parameters. Surely, it would be preferable if SL appointed the best manager/coach he could get and let him get on with it with less interference?
  10. Maybe he should take McCallister and Ashton with him too. As well as experienced manager (UK or foreign) bring in experienced DOF to review recruitment strategy and scouting network too as that clearly needs to improve. This assumes that SL is willing to review his own strategy of course which may be whistling in the wind.
  11. 3 holes in the ground as my dad used to say! Yes really unexpected result. The sending off helped us but well done to the boys for nicking this one - a much needed win. Hope MOL enjoyed his Championship debut, clean sheet too. Well done all round.
  12. GJ seems to be giving Torquay Utd a lift winning 4-2 away at Eastbourne. 1 point off playoffs!
  13. Burton 1-0 !! Rovers stay in bottom 4.
  14. Yes please. Forget his panto persona. Players love him and he’s got a track record of promotion that’s second to none. If we’re serious about promotion, he’d be a no brainer IMO. Trouble is can’t see SL going for him which would mean a change to the strategy and how many more years is he going to carry on for anyway? Probably unrealistic.
  15. Maybe they’ve given up all hope for playing in the EFL and going to join the 5 a side league instead....
