  1. Fantastic report as always. The quality of your reporting always outshines the paid press.
  2. Goal of the season contender from Bennett!
  3. Ah, the old "advertising doesn't work" line. Would love to know how your research stacks up against the multi-billion dollar ad industries findings. Gaming companies don't force people to gamble, but there's clearly a huge correlation with the amount of advertising, sponsorship being spent in places kids are exposed to it and the dramatic increase in children and others gambling. Watching football whilst betting on their mobiles from the comfort of their home is how a whole new generation are engaging with the game. They've removed a huge barrier to entry compared to when we were growing up and had to risk going in to a betting shop underage. You'd have to be incredibly naive to think that increased advertisign and the willingness of football to align themselves with the gaming industry isn't causing misery for huge numbers of kids and adults alike.
  4. Could not agree more. Well said and agree with every word!
  5. Notice how this appears at the end of the survey. Got the feeling they are definitely aiming at something "bold" "dynamic" that "breaks from the norm" etc.. as I was working through the survey. Full of marketing, branding and PR spiel. I pray we don't end up with some utter shite Bristol Bears logo.
  6. May I request a second clue pls?
  7. Sorry, but what a load of waffle. Successful football clubs, businesses and individuals all create an identity, way of playing, a clear value proposition or USP in business and a career path, ambition for individuals or players and set out to achieve it with purpose and drive. It goes without saying that there are going to be hurdles and distractions as you (a little patronisingly) list above to overcome, but the ones who are successful build on momentum, create exceptional team spirit and keep hold of their winners by reflecting their hunger to succeed. The rest just make excuses for why they can't be succesful. You mention shopping lists in the above. Ironically, your post reads as a perfect example of a shopping list full of excuses one could use. It could have been written for MA and SL. As many others have said, the sad reality is that we've not shown enough ambition to keep hold of our best players, we have failed to build on the incredible momentum we achieved, firstly with Cotts, secondly in Jan and have failed to invest in real quality or experience. Perplexingly, BS have adopted the complete opposite strategy with the Rugby. We will see who progresses further this season. I agree with EMB and many others who think we've let a huge opportunity slip through our fingers and the fall-out is only part way through being realised.
  8. Curious about this? Is this a hunch of yours SX227 or have you heard/seen more to suggest this is their plan?
  9. Hearing we didn’t. Can anyone confirm?
  10. How do you explain the fake accounts & comments too then?
