To be fair Paul Randall was a decent forward 

He was indeed. Saw him play many years later for someone against Nailsea Utd.

They had a few good players. Dick Shepard was a good keeper until he suffered that nasty injury.

Ha!  Laying my cards on the table, seriously I am a passing Brighton fan and I regularly log into forums of clubs around the league.  I just like football and reading what other football fans think - that's all.  As for Bristol, I quite like both Bristol clubs if I'm honest.  I do feel sorry for Rovers though (in a way I wouldn't expect you to, for obvious reasons) - they've had ground problems ever since I was a teenager and I'm 50 on Saturday - although they don't exactly help themselves when they hire violent cretins like Joey Barton.

I thought you’d come on here to thank us for selling you Adam Webster, who is obviously a key part of your team  achieving such lofty heights in the PL so far this season.

He's been excellent for us, to be honest.  Started off shakily in his first half season (perhaps to be expected) but now firmly part of a very good Premier League defence.  Shame he's injured for the next four games as we will undoubtedly miss him.

No problem.

Like I say, I wouldn’t expect it to change your opinion of the Gas as an outsider but I felt it was worth pointing out that it goes deeper than just playing in the same City.
It would be hypocritical of me if I didn’t mention that our fans haven’t been angels in the past with an arson attack late one night in the early 90s...probably got the idea from Rovers themselves who allegedly set fire to their own main stand at Eastville about 7 years earlier. I don’t recall any occasion where City the club have tried to cause financial or stadium issues with Rovers.

People from outside often remark that the most sensible thing for football in Bristol would be to build a big, modern stadium in the centre of the City for both teams to share. 

I couldn’t see it working myself...🤣

Well no, because that would involve some money from those ***** and they don’t have any.

I think I'd respect you more for saying that than your original post where you accused me of being an arse licker for saying I like both Bristol clubs, when anyone with a brain could see that if I really was arse licking I'd have said I much preferred the red half or some such drivel.  Anyway, by way of an olive branch, I'll leave it there.  Nothing crappy or little about NSC, by the way.

 

So moving on, perhaps you could answer a question for me:  my sister moved to Brislington a year ago.  Is this historically City or Rovers territory?

Fek me! You could wear a replica jesters shirt when you visit your sister and see how you get on🤷‍♂️

Can they not get ANYTHING right ??

I cannot believe vim saying this but I almost feel sorry for them.

That tweet from the weekend where the fan couldn’t exchange the kit because they’d taken the last ones in the size she wanted fir the first team 😢

Do they literally not have a pot to piss in?

Jeez - Slagchat gets worse and worse - now claims that Ken Masters threw in a dodgy kiddy abuse complaint against Wael....

 

I was given information by someone unconnected to the board and the SC that the SC had made a safeguarding complaint to the FA. I will not give the details, they aren’t for me to say and the club cannot comment on the specifics either I would think.

At first I couldn’t believe it to be true. So I asked the question to a few people directly, to be told it was true. I was stunned, Wael Al’Qadi might be many things, but I never in a million years had him down to be a I love you. I’ve taken my own child into the box next to his over the course of 18 months and happily watched him engage with Harry and as he is also a father himself you can tell by the way he is with kids, he is in no way a threat.

So why would someone go to these lengths?

I spoke to one of the people involved at the centre of the complaint, Paul Adulous, known as Wilf, a member of the SC and chairman of the WSM branch of the SC by phone who gave me the real inside track on what went on, why and how far it had all gone and how he was pretty disappointed by the way things had gone.

I then received an anonymous letter sent to my business following various postings I made on gaschat where I believed this was an attempt at trying to lynch Wael and the this was nothing more than a dirty tactic which had no foundation.

In that letter was an unsigned note that had been computer printed saying that it wasn’t an attempt at a lynch but a very real complaint and it included a copy of the letter that was drafted to make the original complaint. I still do not know who sent me that letter. Although looking at the diction, or rather lack of, I have my suspicions.

I showed that to Wael, I felt I had a duty to do so that this information was so brazenly being passed around and that if someone had sent it to me, who else had they sent it to? Wael confirmed it was the letter that he had also seen.

Wael explained that he had been fully investigated by the FA, Council, Police and they had found nothing so I wasn’t to worry. I was happy with that explanation.

I sent Jim an email back in July after I had received some information that Steve Hamer and Ken Masters were colluding on this safeguarding matter. I never accused JC of being apart of it, in fact I said I hoped that he didn’t know about it and that I was willing to show him what I had, in the hope that he might realise the massive mistake he has made in backing Masters and that if he didn’t know about it, he has the opportunity to make it right.

Jim never replied and I’ve subsequently found out via his press release that rather than speak to me, he would rather speak to the SCs solicitors and ignore the elephant that was in the room and clearly the main thrust of his demise.

By his ignorance I’ll assume he did know, even if he wasn’t involved directly, and if he did know, he was complicit by not dealing with it appropriately.

I loved he 'couldn't disclose or comment', then provided sufficient personal details to easily be traceable.

Irrespective of whether or not things are 'made up' the first rule of a safeguarding policy is when a complaint is raised its recorded, investigated using an agreed procedure and steps are taken to ensure all parties are protected in the immediate future with wider actions taken, if necessary. This would include responding to the complainant that post investigation no cause for concern was substantiated against allegations made. None of which appears to be reported by either side in this case.

Because child abusers go out of their way to display traits that might indicate they abuse those under their care, they'd never collude to hide their intentions toward children -  not for one minute implying The Fake Sheikh is anything other than wholly upstanding in that respect.

An honest question, is there any historical issue between Brighton and Swindon? I know they have some strange mutual hatred thing with Gillingham which is very odd.

Some hatreds are very irrational - I used to hate Stockport Country with a passion because of one of my many trips up to see City at Edgeley Park - at half time they gleefully sold me a portion of mushy peas before even more gleefully informing me that they had no more cutlery - so I instantly bought a Twix and used both sticks to scoop up said peas of the mushy variety! And if my memory is correct it poured with rain that day and we scraped a 2-2 draw with Bo in goal and Jim Brennan notching!!
