  1. Would you welcome / respect an improved Rovers?

    You obviously weren't watching in the 80s when they would routinely beat us, this is how it would typically go - - city would be far better team, play better football dominate the game - Gas would kick anything in a red shirt, usually 3 foot into the air - in the 89th minute some free signing from Mnagotsfield would score from 40 yards and Gas would win - next six months Reds would be constantly reminded off it. so for me it is a let them rot. Really enjoyed the last 18 years, :laugh:
  2. Norwich fans after match

    I recall leaving Sheffield in an official coach and suddenly a pub emptied, we feared we might be about to be attacked but then they unveiled a Wednesday Union Jack and clapped us down the street.
  3. Norwich fans after match

    No not that young. I was trying not to make eye contact as I was with my young kids and they were acting increasingly erratically. I'm guessing a mixture of 20s and 30s. Started off like boisterous high jinks but when I turned down the road they were becoming increasingly aggressive and appearing to be spoiling for a fight.

  5. Norwich fans after match

    Yes I was very surprised, Norwich fans have always appeared a sensible, decent bunch to me. The way they were behaving would have got them a slap at Yeovil never mind Bristol City. I can't get my head round their thinking, did they genuinely think they were hard (laughable)? Did they think they'd meet no resistance (naive)? Or had they all seriously overdone it on the cider (hopefully).
  6. Norwich fans after match

    Not seen that type of behaviour for a while, a small group (10-15) doing their very best to provoke City fans. Walking away from the ground near the park verbally abusing fans, throwing cones and generally acting like 'hard men'. Of course their targets were families (I was with three nine year olds) but hopefully they ran into some City fans who might not be such an easy target.
  7. 4 losses on the bounce!

    Johnson out!

  9. Atmosphere tonight

    I watched the game live and recorded it on TV. Once again the pundits commented on City's brilliant atmosphere. It only seems to be Gasheads and a small section of our own fans who seem to believe the atmosphere is better elsewhere. I've posted this so many times and I find it tiresome, but as someone who has lived in a number of places around England, other fans always consider Ashton Gate one of the most noisy and intimidating venues in the league. Stop doing ourselves down.
  10. Diedhiou and Djuric back mid-January

    I really, really hope this is not the case. This has been an amazing season for City and I really hope we continue to attack all competitions. We can bring in a couple of loans in January to bolster the squad and also have some players returning from injury. We should rest people where we really need to but otherwise I would like us to go with our strongest team.
  11. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    We can improve the training ground as much as we like, the fact remains we don't have a Santa's Grotto and the Gas do.
  12. Barnsley fans

    Sort of missed them, they used to be on this forum almost daily telling us how wrong we got it appointing Lee Johnson. Funny how we're suddenly not hearing much from them.
  13. Early leavers

    I wish we could get over this pointless debate/argument, the facts are - * some fans will never leave early, the only time I came close was when 7-1 down at Swansea but still I stayed. * some fans will always leave early, they wish to beat the traffic for a variety of reasons. * some fans take defeat worse than others and will leave early if the team is losing. * Bristol City fans are no less or no more loyal than any other fans. I watched Barcelona a couple of weeks back and fans were leaving early with Barca 2-0 up. If you watch Sky/BT matches and the home team are losing quite often the ground is half empty by the 85th minute. * (whisper this) even the self styled greatest fans in the world at the Mem have been known to leave early in their droves when losing against an opposition they feel they should beat.
  14. Today's latest ridiculous news story

    This was extremely dangerous, with the long history of aminosity between the two clubs plus the club's infamous hooligan firms this was a second Heysel in the making. Or was it just a hardy group of loyal footy fans getting under cover with another group of hardy and loyal footy fans.
  15. Retro style

    Something tells me that Italy won't be flogging many shirts.
