  1. Respect ? As a manager what is his claim to fame. He left BCFC in better shape than when he arrived with some 50 plus players in and out through the revolving door. I think that’s it really ( and of course a cup run). I think he is quite liked still, but recognised his time and come and he did fall short.. I think we will all keep an eye on Sunderland..
  2. Nope... some horrendous losing runs.... followed by winning runs...followed by....brushed away. LJ is a likeable character and wish him well. Good chance we might see him back here next season...that will be interesting. I am Glad he left, his time had come, but I would applaud him on his return.
  3. I thought very ineffective, and did nothing of note in the whole game. certainly did not make you sit up and think ‘wow’ he looks useful.... Having watched it on the FA app I then tuned into radio Brizzle and heard Gary Owers comments after the game and the interviews. I do not think Owers was impressed either. But you also have to be fair and give the guy a chance and a run....what chance he will start at Brentford then ?
  4. A goal celebration at Hull...they did not see too many mind. The general view on the HCFC forums was he is ok player and expect to see him back, seems did not exactly uproot trees.
  5. Reading the reports at the time we best off a host premier league and other championship clubs to sign him.... wonder where they were when he went off to a Hull City ? Another player who got injured shortly after joining us... never impressed . Second chance then..
  6. Hopefully McGregor will get stuck into this story, I am confident he will ask the questions we would if we could...to the powers that be. if his contract was cancelled by mutual consent , got to have been a pay off somewhere.. I was really hoping he would be a asset sadly not the case..I found an article attributed to Billic on Birmingham Live dated 4th June when he explained why Brunt had been released, he had lot his power on the pitch.... that might explain a lot but please do not fob me off he ripped up his contract out of good will. I hope SL asks some questions about this o
  7. seems to vary Match by match. The Northampton game in the cup was a minute behind... I had a 3 0 'result' bet with Bet365 and was about to cash out on around 89 minutes when I saw the result change to 4 - 0 for us on the 365 web site. A minute later i saw the goal on robins TV. (lost me £30 quid). The luton game was about 20 seconds behind... it is what it is I suppose.
  8. It’s such a shame there’s a time lag on Robins TV. Radio Bristol commentary along side Robins TV would be perfect... find both Gary Owers and Chris Honor excellent and call it as it is.....
  9. But these people cannot be ‘yes Men’ but must contribute to the game plan and way forward when it comes to identity and how the match day squad performs... I have always envisaged a management team is similar to the famous Liverpool boot room....where all the staff would thrash out the issues.
  10. Perhaps not surprised but still tickets available for Boxing Day v Wycombe. At 1745hrs Tuesday. 2000 in a deserted gate. Fair play to those making the effort, for traditionally a great crowd. Was looking at going to the FA cup game see how it pans out.
  11. Not sure on that one.. I have no doubt that when we get to Premier SL would open the book.. with that revenue he would want us to make a go of it. He has put so much into BCFC I am confident he would do what’s needed to establish us ? As for Sheff Utd it’s a strange one, from being close to qualifying for European football one season to dead certs for relegation the following season. Those blades fans mind would not wanted to have missed that last season.. Most of us would want to join the top table and the elite....long way to go still.
  12. To true. The reign of SOD was bizarre in the extreme.. yes it’s history but a strange time. For a manager to imply he did not look at the league table, wind up or not, but only the ‘performance’ mattered.. wonder what he would make of us this season, getting some results early on without the performance. yep after relegation the stats say 11 games in league one without a win, bottom of the league, finally SOD gets heave Ho and along comes Steve Cotterell. To think that SOD ends up as assistant manager to Brendon Rogers at Liverpool is another strange one. He is now at Portsmouth involv
  13. very true Robin101, but I forgot how sh1te we were the year before as well, and its not that long ago really... perhaps the point is how quickly things can really change in football. Hull City are a prime example of reaching never never land... paying dosh you do not have, dodgy owners... blah blah blah.. Give me a S Lansdown any day of the week.
  14. Value will be limited now in January.... if we had an offer 4/5M last window should have taken it... but no rumours we did ? what will a club pay now knowing he’s a free next summer?
  15. Bit of fun really leading up to Boxing Day... with a bit of doom and gloom within OTIB at present when we are sat 9th in the Championship, perhaps its not all as bad we think, or perceive it to be... I am sure like you many of the more ‘mature’ posters who lurk here, you can remember and recall there have been even darker days than the SOD relegation of 2012/3 season... However if you look at that league table, from that that season, it shows how quickly fortunes can change in football.. I looked as I could not recall who was relegated with us.... We finished bottom of the pile with 41
