    'He only cost a million...'

    Christ we've come a long way in 4 years, hearing the SBA sing that loud last night really brings it home... Remember watching us lose 2-0 away at Yeovil 4 years ago (with literally only one person serving alcohol to away fans before the match that hot afternoon), the likes of Stuart Beavon...

    Tony Andreu

    Andreu was widely regarded as a player who would make a significant difference on his return when he was out last year... Anyone concerned that his apparent lack of fitness is actually a sign that he won't be anywhere near the player he could potentially be for us? Or is it still too early to...

    Maguire-Drew

    Injured or dropped out of squad yesterday? Appears to have great close control but leaves us wide open on right flank because he doesn't track back properly. Not having a pop at him at all, think he's got quality & will play a decent role in our squad for rest of season. If Robins did drop...

    Thoughts on today

    Just got back to Bristol... We now have an average start to the season W2 D0 L2... so let's not go overboard with negativity, eh... O'Brien definitely at fault for 1st goal, rush of blood to the head... I like Jack Grimmer but he constantly backed off and allowed his man to turn, whcih was...

    Kenny Jackett

    Has resigned from Rotherham Possibly still based in midlands after spell at Wolves. Do you think he would consider taking the (thankless) task of managing us ? We could do far worse - he has the right kind of promotion experience. Bearing in mind that I think we'll sell Ben Stephenson soon...

    Rose out injured for 'weeks, if not months'

    Really bad news for us as he is one of the few players who offers a goal threat! TM says that recent injuries mean we 'may have to adjust our targets' - am hoping that doesn't mean we end up with the equivalent of Hunt, Henderson and Ramage as quick stop-gap solutions... Lets hope the knock...

    Jones needs to be rested

    Know it's only 3 games in, but opposition seem to realise that kicking him out of the game stops our main attacking threat. Concerned that he could pick up a serious injury (he was limping again last night) if we persist with him. Not ideal - we are very toothless without him. Desperate times...

    How would you feel if we...

    ... had Wasps as the sponsor of our away shirt and played in yellow/black stripes away? I believe that we may already have an agreement in place for the away shirt next year, but can't help feeling that this could be a bargaining chip to get a bigger slice of revenue from the Ricoh from Wasps...

    Phillips: new contract or not?

    have not been to a game for a while, so am wondering whether you think Aaron Phillips deserves a new contract based on last few games? Seems to be very committed to the cause and I get the impression he is improving defensively (less prone to rash challenges, maybe). I really don't know - I...

    still a playoffs team if we...

    ... recruit a solid left back on loan and sign a pacy striker. We've missed Ryan Kent quite a lot because although he doesn't have much end product, his pace on the counter attack drags opposition players out of position. That's especially important in away games against good opposition. I...
