  1. Hopefully Mad Dog isn't going to start playing wrong uns like the other one did
  2. We've lost every game he has played in
  3. Lets flipping hope so. Anyway good interview that I thought. I remain ever optimistic of seismic change
  4. That's good work if you can get it. Surely now to be known as John de Bermuda Shorts
  5. Look I'm not here to cause any ructions but I'm just ever so slightly curious as to what our chairman's JL working day entails...
  6. Oh. No. Strangely dislikeable chap that Appleton. Just for the love of @"& No but if it happens you can see how it engineered around to it What exactly did we do wrong in a previous life?
  7. Ashton is no puppet. Steve Lansdown is a very busy man. He has delegated the football side of things to this clever gentleman. Now to understand what Ashton is actually all about I implore anyone who really wants to know to read 'Broken Dreams - Vanity, greed and the souring of British Football' by Tom Bower. It is researched fact, not a fictitious novel. And even this is the tip of the iceberg. It doesn't matter what the quality of the players involved in the transfers actually is, just that they happen on a regular and unecessary basis . The kick backs are enormous and all the peo
  8. Outmanaged. Simple as that. Terrible starting line up using 2 players who haven't even started a game. In game management awful. Just very poor. Shocking stuff really
  9. A bizarre team selection today. Our midfield is non existant. Playing 2 yes 2 new players from the start after a good showing against a naturally superior Brentford where we played well despite the defeat. I'm baffled to be honest
  10. I bet Ashton is already thinking the same as he lines him up for auction
  11. The fact is Bristol Rovers have a better manager than we do at the present time. No-one has been able to say that for a long time.
  12. Yes funny that. All bunce for Ashton. Where there’s Muck there’s brass
  13. I never agreed with the parachute payments. Its a bit like house swap with the rich family staying in the council house receiving sneaky caviar parcels until they go back to their country estate
  14. I voted for Dean Holden to stay in for now. Its so easy to say out (or leave) at anything these days. I believe the problem does lies higher up and all around. There is a sterile culture around the club that I strongly dislike these days. There is an autocrat (who would be very hard to remove) who sells to the club (us) that the players brought in are the best thing since sliced bread. However many are already damaged and don't actually play. Good at wheeling and dealing for a bit of profit for the club and no doubt lining his own too, but what is left on the playing staff isn't re
  15. I just put this on the Eliasson thread, so I'll say it again. I suggest anyone interested in this (including Steve Lansdown) should read 'Broken Dreams - Vanity, greed and the souring of British football' by Tom Bower. You will then realise Mark Ashton is having it large, very large. Its a great read and every transfer done in this country has benefits top and bottom for agents and the people pulling off the deals (i.e Mr Ashton)

  17. Well its a fully paid job being laid on a bench. Half the country are at it
  18. Goal difference nearly always shakes down to the actual finishing position. Not always but its pretty reliable indicator. Therefore we are in a slightly false position. Hopefully we can stretch out some better scores and stay up there !
  19. Not his best today. Too many balls into the centre where there was little threat from us. Probably needs a rest
  20. Right so I have it now on Chrome. Missed the first half. GRRRRR
  21. My mac uses Safari. The last 9 games all been fine. Now i have to work out during a game how to download chrome !!
