He most certainly does and very nice it is too. I had to visit it for work a week or two back.

Popping down to Looe tomorrow, will say hi to him for you.

Going there shortly. Will be about twenty minutes. :noexp:

Hope you have deep pockets last time I was there a pint and a half of Stella was £7-40, and that was at least 5 years ago, nice place though. Enjoy your stay, I'm next to the Harbour moon.

In the squad for that season ;

Peter Beadle

Steve Torpey

Mark Shail

Lorenzo Pinamonte

Paul ‘ where’s me hamstrings ? ‘ Mortimer 

Gerard ‘ I love Reading supporters ‘ Lavin

Keith ‘ Interesting ‘ Millen

Karl ‘ What’s that round thing ? ‘ Hutchings

Steve ‘ No I really am tanned ‘ Jones .

 

The good guys ( there by mistake)

Tinnion

Scotty Murray

Mickey Bell .

It was during that six months that I started to get interested in cloud formations which were often obscured by a freaking football at Ashton Gate .

:badmood:

I  quite liked Mark Shail. Not the quickest but could play a bit for a big center back.

Ha, seconded!

My first half season or so was Benny- my first game was the Wolves 6-1 debacle, though at least a spirited rally in April onwards...

Benny goes, can only get better yeah? Nope- PULIS for half season in first full season- amazed I still follow us today really, in some ways.

Yeah, but did you go to that Bournemouth game after he left? Atmosphere in the away end was unbelievable. And we won!

To be fair, Mortimer could play a bit, the one game a year he was fit.

Didn't he sign Ivan Tistemitanu? Cracking player

I wasn't at the game but remember listening to it on Radio Bristol. During the post match phone-in, the first caller came on, he'd been at the game and Twentyman asked him what he thought. The guy replied "one word Geoff, TRIFFIC!"*

 

* For those too young to remember or had managed to successfully block out the whole sorry period, "triffic" was one of Pulis's favourite words.

I thought Paul Mortimer was a fantastic footballer, for what’s it worth!

He hated us and we hated him, 

Our directors didn't hate him so much as to make an illegal approach to secure his services, to make some very irregular 'consultancy' payments during his time with us (you'll recall he never actually signed as our manager owing to the great Bristol Biro crisis) and long after he'd left, having never technically been an employee of ours, Stoke and ourselves ( they too had made an illegal approach,) funded his private High Court prosecution against Scally & Gillingham. Thankfully the Judge saw through him and in castigating terms tore his reputation (sic) to shreds.

Also not sure We hated him but I did, with a vengeance and that was long before , whilst our manager, he was observed cutting his front lawn wearing a Gas shirt.

One of the worst ever periods of my fifty-odd years supporting City was the Pulis era (only the 1982 “Bristol City - Now or Never” period was worse, though for vastly different reasons). We’d thought we were getting Moyes but instead we were saddled with a manager who only seemed intent upon damaging the then still brittle foundations of our club. His brand of football was and still remains, truly dire. He hated us and we hated him, resulting in a truly toxic atmosphere clouding BS3. If you weren’t around to witness it, be thankful.

 

I have one abiding memory of his reign and that was the dullest game of football I've ever seen - it was a 0-0 v Wycombe, possibly a Friday evening and if  they were still playingl today, it would still be 0-0.

The odd thing about his time was that we could't score for toffee but had Tony Thorpe in the squad and he  hardly got to play. He was a top goalscorer at that level. Maybe something to do with him being a nippy small guy and not the 6ft6 lump that Pulis has always gone for.

[Edit] just checked Wikipedia and Thorpe went on to score 51 in 128 games for City and Pulis wouldn't play him!

I agree - he was also in the City side that beat Liverpool 0-1 in the ‘Tinnion game’ ...

I vaguely remember that game. Tommy Black rings a bell for some reason!

Definitely a Benny signing. Thought as a player, so so?

Ah yes, didn't he have that as part of his signing on fee- seem to recall a grand piano or similar. Gift? Don't recall it exactly but.

And of course he got a hammering from another judge when he walked out on Palace then tried to screw them for millions.

This is football though, that sort of thing is no barrier to getting a job.

I can’t see them because of those net curtains in the way.

Tistemetanu (no idea about the spelling) was a cracking player, prior to his terrible injury.  Combative, mobile, decent vision...could have been top notch.  Such a shame.

Stick him in the Billy Mercer category of what might have been- was young back then, don't remember all of it so well.

:laugh: I have a few more years on you, it seems!!!!   I remember watching us lose at Oxford with a mate, who thought we were utter sh17 (we were) but picked out Ivan as being "really handy"

Imagine Korey Smith, except harder, with a bit more vision.  And shaven headed.  And Moldovan.  And much, much more scarey looking.

IIRC, Thorpe was recalled in the first post-Pulis game (Bournemouth) and scored twice.  He was quite pleased...

Hughton is the first name that comes to mind, but is closely followed by Lee Johnson.

If an approach was made, then I genuinely feel that it's one job that could tempt Johnson Jnr - English chairman, good financial position, will probably be one of the favourites for promotion next season, it ticks all the boxes.

As I said, probably Hughton, but would be amazed if Lee isn't on that list of people they would want.

Reading the opening thread, I was kind of hoping he was leaving the country for good and taking his brand of football with him to some far off Eastern European country where "Dolph Lundgren" 6'5" plus type people are aplenty & more suited to his brand of football
