|So.... who should I vote for at the next election??|
at 12:24 12 Dec 2018
A lot of people on here seem to fancy they know a lot re politics.
Let’s actually listen - who should I vote for next time??
Tories - mess central
Labour - weak opposition who love benefits
Lib Dem’s - to my mind finished due to coalition
UKIP - turns out the Farage party... done
Greens - pressure group that grow a small amount each time
Oh the options!!
Points for justification to that party - not simply slamming opposition....

Sticking to guns here, he won't play another minute for us again.
Convinced we're trying to get this deal to collapse.
|Relegation - tv / radio income|
at 17:36 6 Dec 2018
I must confess, I didn't realise £8 mill of our income, currently comes in the form of tv and radio.
Was talking to a Bristol Rovers friend today, about what they get in league 1 for this. Maybe 2 mill absolutely pushing it.
We'd have a massive loss of income, players on too much ££££, relegation would be an absolute disaster for us as a football club. I doubt we have relegation clauses, or perhaps we do!?
I really think if we were to go down, coming back would take more than any 1/2/3 seasons. Would be a slog.

Gerken - Self explanatory. Bart needs to come out of the firing line, and Gerken is always good for a few games - before inexplicably having errors in him 6/7 games down the line. Happens EVERY TIME.
Spence - I don't think Donacien will play another minute for us. We're trying our best to make sure this deal doesn't become permanent.
Chambers + Pennington - sadly the best we have at CB
Knudsen - likewise, the best we have at LB
Skuse - best sitter
Bishop - providing fit, will add a bit of drive to CM
Downes - better than Chalobah interms of keeping the ball, offer a shield to back 4 freeing up Bish
Sears LM - we have one partnership working well. Knudsen + Sears
Lankaster RM - Better positional sense than Edwards who quite literally is a passenger from a defensive perspective
Roberts - Makes the ball stick uptop more than Jackson. IF Harrison is fit enough, perhaps time for Harrison to have a go as the CF.

|Blame........ are WE to blame.....|
at 14:31 30 Nov 2018
* Evans to blame........
* Mick to blame.........
* Hurst to blame.......
* This / that / the other to blame.
We MOAN a hell of a lot as a fanbase. Sure, I moaned no ends during Hurst's reign due to thinking he was completely incompetent / X Y Z so I'm no saint.
However, we feel Evans should be throwing ££££ at it more so. Sure, I get that. We're underspending, going backwards. I get that.
Then look at our attendances. Sure, we've been stuck in this division a long time. We're bored. I get all this.
Sure, they were always going to dip down from the Premier league days, and to a degree from 2002 - now. I realise the red button is going to damage midweek games, Bristol City brought 250 fans ( it's a hell of a drive I'm from Bristol ) so cannot blame them. 13726
Now the timing of this article many may feel odd - given we attracted a very good 22995 v WBA on Friday night - while on sky. Promo game as we all know, so cannot do that price often. ( I think allowed four per season )
Lambert's first game attracted - 15129 for PNE. That's a better barometer. Saturday 3pm game, I'd imagine will be similar for Wigan.
However, with a good 14,000 or so empty seats on average perhaps for a league game, our revenue is down.
Are we, as a fanbase, PARTIALLY to blame for where the club is now?
|Edwards defensively / partnerships|
at 06:49 30 Nov 2018
A lot has been made of Spence recently - perhaps rightly so. No issue with that, I'm far from his biggest fan of all time either.
However - is Edwards really offering an awful lot of protection?
It's hard for me to judge as overseas / don't get to live games due to this and watching games online - while handy ( don't see them all ) sometimes you don't see the movement / full picture like you do in the stadium.
Take the last game - half time Bristol City change tactics and their left winger pulls our pants down.
One goal you see Edwards running back - while...... yeah. Not doing a lot.
Is his positional sense particularly good? Not saying he has to make big tackle etc upon big tackle - but if you have a good positional sense then you're halfway there.
If he's not proving great defensively, is he doing enough offensively to give a little leniency with the defensive side of the game?
Look at the other wing, Knudsen + Sears. Sears right now having a good patch, the partnership is better.
