On our local radio, Darren Fergusson reckons a big club will come in for JCH this Summer. Just to rub it in to the gas, how about City snapping him up?

Absolutely. 

Should have got him a year ago though. Would have been about £1m...

They've released their retained list and agent Little has finally departed it seems. But their top goalscorer, Luke Leahy, a left-back. Who Barton in an interview the other day said was committed to staying at the club and wanted to stick with it and who Barton made captain, has rejected a contract offer and now will leave. You couldn't write it!!

You are right. Poor Simon Southgate tried with his chubby little six fingered hands.

He was looking like a one season wonder at the time, fair play to Posh for realising he just needed to be playing with a better team.

And to be of the required level of fitness to play at the top end of the table.

Probably had a £10m £300k release clause at the Gas 

Fair play to the Gas they did include a number of clauses when they sold him for promotion etc. (Would probably buy them  a whole new team).

Controversy and trouble seems to follow that bloke.

Risky appointment in many ways - which is nice.

Alright then. 

You'd think he'd have heard of Liam Walsh. After all, he tore them a new one and scored against them up the swamp last season.

Obviously another gAsshole who doesn't visit the tented village.

I’m sure he remembers Liam Walsh tearing his shit little club a new one..

....although, being a Gashead he probably doesn’t go to games.

Im sure he also remembers Adelakun rejecting them last Summer, preferring instead to go and live in Hull.

Let’s be honest, he knows all of them.

Bullshitting little Sag numpty 🤣

Not attending games...it’s what they do

I see Billy Bodin has been released by Preston after starting just 5 games this season, I'm surprised the blue few haven't gone into overdrive about getting him back.....

A lot of them moan about the fact they need a new stadium and are living behind the times, but these are usually the same people who every year want to get former players back. 

I'd wager Bodin, Harrison, Cureton and Lines have all been suggested as possible signings.

And I'll also wager than at least one of them expected a player to over to an expensive part of the country (Bristol) and engage in some sort of pay as you play contract meaning they might never get paid.

tbf our fans are also excellent at pining over former players.

This just popped up on Bygone Bristol. Wow, what a stadium they could have had on that site, if the directors at the time hadn't "allegedly" been lining their pockets by so much that they had to  accept a paltry bailout from the greyhound company.

'Back in the day' at the time of Twentyman, Alexander et al, I could have named the Gas squad as well, but couldn't name one of them now. Not really interested in knowing, either!

Only one I’d heard of was Mark Little, but they have just released him though.

He did manage to scam 2 years wages out of them for 16 appearances though 😂

Of course there was no conflict of interest in the fact that some were directors of both the Rovers and the Greyhound Company? :)
