  1. Did the earth move for you?

    Didn't notice a thing. Too busy trying to fit a new thermostat which for some reason trips the electrics/blows a fuse when the temp is adjusted. Makes a change , the other day I turned the power off of the sockets to change one only to find the one I was changing stays live on that ring. Felt something then to be fair
  2. Onto March 1996, and a trip to Twerton, actually our first win while they were squatting there. This reminded me what a good player Agostino was, I was annoyed when he left I thought he would be here for a while. Although he did play nearly 250 games for 1860 (the German team he joined) that was over 10 years and only about 30 in the first 2 years. I did hear rumours he tried to come back and was back in Bristol at one time to see if they were interested, might have been just rumour though. The Other Austrailian at the time , David Seal, reminded me of an old saying. "scorer of great goals, but not a great goal scorer". Definitely had something, but just not enough of an all round game I guess. That left side for us was amazing for some time, Tins was the key factor but with Bell and Martin Scott we were solid. This was Daren Barnards time, imo the best footballer of the lot. Anyway , we had lost at the Gate thanks to 2 Beadle goals , I have no memory of that game at all. 20,000 were at the Gate, half that at the squat, I'll make no comment on that.
  3. Relax and enjoy

    That's the thing, as I've said before. If we got to the same place/points in a sort of WLDWLDWLD way, instead of WWWDLLDDL there would be less knee jerk reaction and many more people would be happy. We just seem to have the capability of bad spells that are hard to shake . This years is easier to explain or understand, but no easier to shake off. With Leeds,Fulham and Cardiff to come , we might not be through it just yet. It's also down to hope and expectation. We were so good early on that, that becomes the expected, and when you drop below THAT level you are underachieving rather than going back to a more sensible/normal level. We can still hit some form and make the playoffs, I'm looking 5/6th , but with teams really hitting form around us it will be very difficult.
  4. Baker - £3.9m?

    Problem during the loan spell Dave, I thought he was a Red card waiting to happen. He looks far more disciplined now, top quality.
  5. David Rennie in court

    The real Rennie 53 according to Wiki, the con mans 46. Yes @poland_exile he was given some undeserved stick. I liked him but for a section of the support he wasn't good enough, good enough to play 82 times in the Prem with Cov though. Go figure.
  6. Relax and enjoy

    It's been a strange season, expectation (mine, or at least hope ) mid table with a chance of Playoff's . The early season was good , and just kept going. The strange thing was , when we got injuries to the point of no strikers left, we still kept going. We actually played some of the best football I've ever seen by a City team. Strange again that , as players returned to fit ness our poor spell continued . It's yet another strange thing that, it's not just the team , but individually 2 or 3 players are really struggling and I think this has impacted on us not shaking off this poor run. We have probably ruined the season for every one, like last year , if we took an average of our results instead of batches of win and losses as it seems to have been we would have been pleased. Last years position was ok, and this year , if we had spread the last 10 games through the season then our position is as good as anyone would have hoped for Feb. As said above, we don't do relax . Instead we do awesome footaball followed by slump ,it is the way of the city We could win at Leeds and Patterson and co find something like their early season form and playoffs wouldn't be a possibility, they would be a certainty. Sadly , we all know it's not the straight forward. I'm guessing the season won't just peter out though, we don't usually do boring.
  7. Baker - £3.9m?

    Me too , I would agree if it was £3.9m very good business. If it was £400k it's the best signing the club has EVER made ! Good when he was on loan, absolute diamond since it became permanent .

  12. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    Henbury Gas , always a giggle. So are Bristol Rovers football club about to enter a new Golden age of football greatness Interesting We have a great manger I'll give him good , at that level. We have a good set of footballers giving it everything for the badge. Can't comment We have a development squad we can be proud about with some very exciting players. Again , can't comment We have a good backroom team. Who knows, what have they actually done? New owners who want the very best for the club. Even their fans are having doubts New commercial dept desperately looking to bring more funding into the club with new and innovative ideas A new Ground breaking shop in the near future. What is a 'ground breaking shop' when it's at home? Always in the future too. New ticketing facilities to make it easier for distant gasheads. Does this mean , makes it harder to rip the club off?? We have a new training ground about to be built with excellent facilities to attract the right type of player to the club About to be built ? Again ? A new purpose built stadium about to be announced Did I miss something? The Post would have had a 64 page pull out if it was that close surely A great set of supporters. All the bricks are now in place to build a championship club , Canvass , surely
  13. How lucky we are in the balmy south

    Bless you
  14. Team for Leeds

    I even thought, I think it was Norwich, he looked like he was hiding. Nothing has gone right for him lately, I don’t think LJ is doing him any favours by playing him. We have options now, give him a rest, I’m sure he’ll be back firing soon.
  15. Team for Leeds

    I’ve been disappointed with Paterson playing for weeks.
