    Had him on my shoulders after the Rotherham game. What a day that was!
  2. South Glos College is all Bristol Sport kit, wouldn't surprise me to see them go aggressively after some of the Uni's as well, Bath uni supply was a 1M contract when I was there a few years back.
  3. Pat Lam just announced long term deal, so hopefully got them both in at the same time.
  4. How did Bower do? always thought he was worth a punt in our academy, don't tend to get too many ball playing 6ft 7 centre backs!
  5. Cricket has reduced memberships for this kind of stuff, I'm Cheltenham based and the old man Worcester, getting to midweek games with Bristol Traffic is sometimes a chore (especially if the players CBA as well!)
  6. debates going on about drums etc for the atmosphere, maybe if people knew the lyrics that would help! Before anyone pipes up I'm not suggesting distributing a songsheet.
  7. There's some decent money on hand for winning this round after they doubled the prize money this year...http://www.thefa.com/competitions/thefacup/more/prize-fund Sure SL would like a cool 360k in the bank, plus guaranteed tv and decent gate money from a quarter-final and also a sniff at the 720k for the quarter-final winner!
  8. Demand Tammy on loan as part of the deal if he's off to Chelsea.
  9. Wilkshire vs Tranmere ? Scotty vs Oldham Scotty vs Boro Also, remember Maynard scoring a cracker against Newcastle.
  10. Interesting one that. If you look at Leeds and the rumours of Beilsa being on silly money would be one of the few examples where the manager is paid significantly more than his players. It appears to be working though! I'm of the simple view that instead of spending shed loads of money on players, spend it on the boss. A good manager will get more out of average players than an average manager would get out of good players. Sport is such an enigma in that the boss gets paid less than his employees.
  11. Can we guess how many shots on target as well? I go for two, one will be a tame skidding effort from 25 yards in first 5 mins to dispell the myth we don't shoot. Next in the last ten when we are chasing the game 2-0 down.
  12. This go for broke mentality only exists with those who can see the upside. i've spent a lot of time around fans in the lower leagues who have seen financial mismanagement ruin there once loved football clubs when "going for it" (if anyone wants a quick gander at Worcester Citys recent plight) It's also forgotten that these big money buys want big money wages, which in turn the rest of the squad will want. Simply put if our average wage per player went to £15,000 a week with 22 players, you are instantly commissioning a 5million loss based upon last years turnover, this is without any other costs being accounted for. All very easy to commit too when it's SL's money. For the record i'm reasonably happy with this summers business, we could do with a upgrade in the goalkeeping department, but all things considered it have been a very good window on paper.
  13. As a resident i can yeild some advice... 20 min walk to montpellier from station, plenty of bars and places to eat, plus you can then use the taxi rank which actually has taxis regularly flying through, or go to Harry Cooks and they will do a return coach ticket direct from the pub.
  14. Hegeler starting for 23's could throw his hat into the mix. Maybe a little too soon though.
  15. Went to School with Mark albeit he was 3-4 years above. Can confirm he is a Nunnery Wood veteran!
