  1. Section 82 stewarding yesterday

    Thanks Mark. For what it's worth, I think you personally do a good job despite the limitations of SAG and different H&S legislation that clearly makes your job more difficult. It's good that you and Julie do try to keep a dialogue with supporters on here. Overall, things aren't perfect though. I think there are issues that need exploring - such as the SAG group preventing public access to their minutes. If they were a bit more accessible and accountable, that would help people understand and develop the supporter/club relationship. I also think the St.George Cross issue was handled very poorly by the club. Including Jon's ridiculous tweet. You were the only club official who came on here to explain, and despite not necessarily agreeing with what you wrote - I appreciate that you were the only member of staff who even attempted dialogue which is a positive.

    Sad but absolutely true. The country's best away support coming here in 5 weeks and you can bet the club will ramp up the occasion with some sort of ridiculous gimmick. Free face paint set with every ticket
  3. Pre Match Atmosphere v Manchester

    In all my time attending I've never heard fans sing it spontaneously. There are plenty of better Wurzels songs to use. I've always liked the idea of us running out to or using Massive Attack songs. Moody, atmospheric and Bristolian.
  4. Pre Match Atmosphere v Manchester

    Controversial perhaps but I’d think about scrapping ‘one for the Bristol City’. I know it’s tradition, but no one sings it when it’s played or during the game. Doesn’t build atmosphere as it’s too slow especially considering no one sings along.
  5. Jobsworth much...?!

    They definitely had the aura of a decent sized club when we played them in the FA cup in 07. Felt like quite a scalp at the time.
  6. Would be interested in watching if that's the team. Livermore and Jones aside, it's a pretty exciting lineup - inventive anyway.
  7. Boxing

    He's one of the main guys behind iFL TV - a really good YouTube channel for boxing content. They're well respected and get interviews with all the top guys. They frequently have long chats with Eddie Hearn which are always worth a watch.
  8. Pre Match Atmosphere v Manchester

    Never got to see AG like that sadly. My earliest memories of pre-match at AG is an absurd announcer embarrassingly urging at each stand individually to sing 'Come on you Reds'.
  9. I think the thing about Reid's form is that it's not flash in the pan looking good for a few games. The thing that's so impressive about his form this season and skills is that it's transferable. Whereas Flint for example may find it beyond his capabilities to defend against Morata or Lukaku - Reid's qualities seem to be his movement and energy. His movement and energy is so good that it would be effective at a higher level in my opinion. It's incredibly hard to defend against and not many teams this season have had an answer to it. Playing in that pocket, and not right on the shoulder of defence, means his main disadvantage of his size isn't exposed. We already knew he had exceptional touch and vision, but the elements he's added to his game are very exciting developments and the signs of a top player. There's a difference between a striker scoring for a few games and what Reid's showing this season. It really is very impressive. Well if he wants too, and injuries permitting, Reid could play at a good level for the next 10 years or more. Plenty of time for a club to get their money's worth. The thing with Rhodes, which adds to what I said above, is that his skills don't seem transferable. He seems stuck in that void between top end Championship player and low end Prem. There's lots of forwards like this - Bamford, Gayle, Baldock - who are good players at this level but can't transfer it to the league above. Rhodes is a great goalscorer at this level, but the other factor is his wages. Reid has been here from academy to now and he's not anywhere near our highest earners. Rhodes has played for Middlesborough and Sheffield Wednesday who are happy to pay him more than most of this league could afford. As a result, his potential moves are limited as most clubs simply can't afford him. That lowers his transfer value somewhat. He's priced himself out of competition for his signature. For Reid, I'm sure many clubs in this league could afford to double or treble his wages. Reid, as of August last year, was on £4000 a week. That's a tiny amount for a leading forward in this division. That's why we need to get his contract sorted or cash in whilst his value is high.
  10. Section 82 stewarding yesterday

    I don’t think that much consideration has been put into it personally. I just think it’s an attempt at intimidation and trying to make the experience of those in s82 a bit worse. In my opinion, there are people or peoples employed by or involved with the club who don’t like/want s82. All this inconveniencing, intimidation and game playing is attempted provocation. All it would take is one incident in retaliation for the club to use it as justification to shut s82. Curiously, @JulieH couldn’t possibly tell me which members of club staff are involved in the decision making of where police are placed. That’s suspicious.
  11. Pre Match Atmosphere v Manchester

    Would love them to cut the music but you just know as usual it’ll be that Kill Bill song blaring out 5 mins before kickoff..
  12. Six England squad withdrawals for injury... Really?

    Wilshere is very good at his best. And who is Cleverley overrated by exactly ?
  13. Boxing

    Haha I saw that this morning. The interview from yesterday with Kugan Cassius is good, gets a bit awkward and tense at times. Either this is the real Joshua coming out aka ‘Femi’ or it’s premeditated by Hearn and Joshua’s team to drum up more interest in the probable Wilder fight.
  14. Man Utd FAQ

    I think that’ll almost certainly happen. I always see kids is random shirts.
