  1. Marina simply oozing effortless class as usual... We all appreciate it’s a figurehead role, but no one should under appreciate the one constant through the modern history of our club... She is a wonderful lady...
  2. Ahh, but Portishead, where many players live, also has a Marina, a Grand Prix track (Team Sport Go kart) and the Working Men’s Club (Dominoes and Cards)...in itself, Monaco’s natural twin...
  3. Not world class? Wow.. I watched him a few times for England live, and the only way to appreciate his contribution to a match was live. He covered more ground in each game I saw than any other player on the pitch. He didn’t run past people precisely because he got himself into a great position before getting the ball. To suggest anyone could achieve the caps, games and clubs he did without being world class is surprising.
  4. Many will be avoiding this site now out of principle...go to the team drop down box 2 and look what we are called....
  5. And I still think you and a few others are missing my point. I'm not talking about the league position making us attractive, I’m talking about the club & it’s philosophy. This football club is light years ahead of where we were even 2 years ago. The training facilities (soon to be even better), the stadium, the infrastructure, the management (top to bottom), the financial stability, the culture, and the (god forbid I am saying this) “brand” are all hugely impressive. Prem teams are having to make choices. They can risk 100’s of Millions on marquee signings every year, or they can go and attract as many youngsters in to the academy as possible, from every content of the globe, and hope they get a diamond. And the more they attract, simple numbers means the more they will have to send out. Again, forget the current league position, that’s almost a side show, what matters is the manner in which a club can take players forward and, whether you think I am getting ahead of myself with a delusional vision of “baby Prem” club, that is sure as hell where we are. Last point on the subject. Would you, as a director of football, want to send a young player to what Swansea have become lately or what City are becoming...
  6. Oh I see, you aren’t questioning that we may attract the cream of talent that’s available in England now, you’re giving me a world tour and a reminder that the Prem doesn’t have it all...fair point. So, I’ll re-phrase it...I believe that we will see some of the cream of young world talent that the richest clubs, in the richest league, in the world bring through the biggest academy system on the planet...
  7. Nope, I stand by that one and I am anything but naive. The cream of young world talent is in England, hell, some of them are even amazingly English, as demonstrated by our age group success on the world stage recently. The likes of MC, MU, Liverpool need their growing talent base to be playing games and I believe what we have done this season will be extremely attractive to them. Its got nothing about our past, it’s all about what we are setup to do, and that sure as hell isnt going to be to fly to the top of the Prem, at least not for a few years. SL, MA and absolutely LJ are building something that the cream of the richest league in the world can take advantage of and, if they can, they will... Wolves have strolled this league with overseas loans and played fantastic football, I believe we can do that next year with a fair wind and some decent signings. So, I will repeat, I believe we will get to see the cream of world talent here at Ashton Gate over the next few years and I, for one, can’t wait....
  8. Sorry, who said that? What I said was I’d rather see us play the football we play and I wouldn’t watch a season under Warnock. This isn’t about being promoted under Warnock and not under Johnson. Youve answered your own question. Cardiff are 1 above us playing horrible football and, as usual, he’s playing the victim each time they lose. Whether he’s more effective, been more successful, is more experienced I don’t give a crap. Whether I’m entertained on my weekends off I do. Personal opinion, but, I find your position as “bizarre” as you find mind. But that’s football.
  9. Yep, missing something. Would you spend your hard earned cash to watch a team managed by Colin? The football is one dimensional, unnatractive, boardering illegal at times, and certainly not something I would come and watch. In the same way I wouldn’t watch a City managed by Pulis. it certainly is a time to gloat. In fact it’s never been more a time to gloat. We are witnessing some of the best football I have seen down here for 40 years, against teams I have hardly seen down here for for 40 years and, if we make the Prem, great, but if we don’t, I woul£ not have enjoyed a season more. So, gloat I certainly will.
  10. Absolutely, but it’s not just Pep I’m talking about. Ryan Kent is a player who was hugely in demand. And I don’t mean as a feeder.

    Amnesty

    After watching Cardiff vs Man City game everyone should be under no illusion that our style, our performances and our manager are possibly going to attract the cream of young world greats to AG in the coming seasons. I can’t Imagine a few years ago the likes of Pep, Jose et al sitting in their offices thinking “this kids a super star, Bristol City can be the next step to him becoming a world beater”...and how many youngsters would have fancied it? To be fair, Tammy’s visit started it, but the cup games have made us known even more. And the amnesty? That’s for anyone to apologise, without criticism, for wanting that dinosaur Colin here last season...
  12. Actually, I like the bloke, met him once and was a genuine football fan. You will also find that he has been raving about City, Johnson, and our style of play for a lot longer than any other pundit and, to be fair, for a bit longer than some of the posters on this forum...
  13. That’s an absolute disgrace, fancy unwittingly walking into the ground with a pint and immediately facing the prospect of arrest and a banning order... Or, perhaps, that isn’t quite what happened and it’s just the telling of the story that makes it feel so wrong? Here’s an example: ”Football Fan banned from driving for life for using bus lane” That seems a bit harsh doesn’t it? But when examined is actually: ”Man with existing football banning order attempts to evade police by driving at speed, in stolen car, on 3 wheels, down a bus lane, knocking over and killing an OAP” If anyone fancies a wager with me, I’d happily gamble that either side of “drinking in view of pitch-side”, this particular “defendant” behaved less than compliantly than would be acceptable.
  14. Yep..me too Fortunately booked into St David’s spa for the evening for a romantic night with the Mrs Unfortunately, so were the Brighton team.... Forunately, had the car to shoot off early in the morning and not see the team at breakfast.... Unfortunately, got a speeding ticket on the M5 getting away... That weekend was generally disappointing...
