OK, were now a third of the way through January with plenty of rumours/speculation doing the rounds. But when will we get something more concrete? Any ideas?

Yep sounds a good shout - though if we lose it then expect a delay till things look better ......

If Ealing beat us, I expect them to immediately lose the following week in Jersey. It sounds arrogant, but we playing so well at the moment that for another team in this div to beat us, it would require such an amount of effort that it would take it out of that team for the following week.

Relax. Very soon. A couple have been rumoured on here, as you were.

I think people have unrealistic expectations about who Bristol could/would/should sign.

Take 1,000 pro players.

With 2 and 3 year contracts being the norm, maybe 60% of those will be still under contract at the end of the season. So 400 out of 1000 left

Then say we are all set in 5 of the 15 positions, so are only interested in the two thirds of those 400 players who play in a position of need. 265 out of 1000 left.

Then look at what proportion of those would even consider signing for Bristol over another team. Lets be generous and say that 50% of them would, leaving 133 out of 1000.

Then out of those 133, how many actually fit the profile the Lam wants, on and off the field?

I reckon, when faced with players who fit the profile, Lam will chose the player that BEST fits the profile.

I don't think we are in a position yet to live life without any compromises.

Whenever it does happen I know that anyone who PL brings in will be top notch and fit into the style of play he wants. No more Shane Geraghty signings which slapped desperation all over the club.

Tigers' Dom Barrow may be looking for a mid season move as he seems to have fallen out with one of the other players. I have seen him play a few times and I think he could be great for us - especially if he's available now.

Wont make a difference vs a source like an article, even so a lot of the things on here are complete fiction. A couple are correct. I dont know when being announced, soon Id imagine. Just wait for the club to confirm it,
Just posting for reassurance, let the club do their thing.

Understandable, not asking for full disclosure! tongue sticking out smiley

Should be fun to speculate and see which ones have been right and wrong. Thanks.
