  1. I'm going to the France game. Should be a good laugh in the Parisian sun. The Scotland game is a qualifier
  2. The Hawthorns makes me think of the old folks home in Clevedon
  3. Not too far Reasonable opposition Can get good cider Sounds good to me
  4. And given the figures of many top flight refs in recent years I don't see why not.
  5. Just got spotted looking at a load of topless men at work.
  6. I meant one dimensional In how he deals with a one on one with a defender. Not as a player generally
  7. He certainly should focus on being a left back. When he has played as a winger I have never seen him beat his man any other way than kick it towards the byline and cross. Very one dimensional with his upright running means that he suits full back more than left wing. Personally I'd like to see him stay but 2.5 million is quite the dangling carrot
  8. I know they are, but I feel these four games should be protected somehow so they must be shown by one of ITV or BBC. Same goes for all Home Nations internationals. Although obviously each nation should only see their own nations games.
  9. Less fussed about the Europa League but I feel that the FA cup final and semi-finals, as well as the champions league final should be on terrestrial TV
  10. Any player who hives 100% will be remembered fondly. See ya Little. Best of luck
  11. I know you are generalising the majority but I'm a big critic of SL who doesn't really criticise the on the pitch performance. My concern comes from the creation and pushing of the 'Bristol Sport' brand. The idea of many sporting teams, although primarily BCFC and BRugbyFC, being administered together to save costs is a good one. In fact fans of both clubs have benefited from free tickets and discounts to the other teams. In addition fans of Bristol City have enjoyed (bar this season imo) very nice kits that are well above the standard Addidas template. However this could all be achieved without pushing Bristol Sport as a brand. Bristol City and Bristol Rugby are two 'brands' that have been in existence for a combined 252 years. They have both attracted the support of tens of thousands and despite not hitting the highs of their respective sports, have very proud, individual histories and traditions. The history and traditions of sporting clubs are a huge reason why we find them so endearing and why they take up a huge part of our lives. Bristol Sport threaten this at the moment by trying to create uniformity between City and Bristol. Already we've seen red appear on Bristol's traditional kit for no other reason than to be on brand, specifically, Bristol Sport's brand. This desire for one brand for two different clubs threatens who we are as clubs and our identities. If you read reviews of the new AG, specifically on http://www.footballgroundguide.com , it is evident that visiting fans have no idea who plays at AG by just walking in. Simple things like a club crest here and there would go a long way, but it hasn't happened. I fear this dilution of both clubs into the vastly more prominent Bristol Sport will lead to a much more 'plastic' and soulless clubs with little differentiation with many other clubs of both codes, up and down the country. In addition to this we have seen two similar size clubs to us, who I feel have less potential, in Huddersfield and Reading embrace reasonable ticket prices to build a fan base and fill their grounds. Reading's cheapest ticket is £20 (this also includes away fans) and Huddersfield are offering £179 season tickets. This also makes football more accessible and inclusive so the club can truly represent South Bristol and the wider area, rather than just those with a bit of disposable income. These ticket prices have not affected the clubs performances, as both are currently in the Play Offs and if Huddersfield win tonight, one of them will be in the Premier League. However despite making savings behind the scenes, fans are not reaping the rewards, with fans of Bristol seeing a huge jump in prices between the 14/15 and 15/16 seasons, and this year is the first year I can remember where our cheapest Adult season ticket costs more than £300. Finally my criticism of SL extents to him being a tax dodger. Illegal or not it is clearly quite immoral when the NHS is on its knees, very few police and state schools are appealing to parents to fund their schools. He will still have wealth above and beyond what any of us can dream of so I cannot support his decision to be a tax exile at all. For me I'd like to see Bristol Sport to be less prominent and just let Bristol City and Bristol Rugby be the clubs they are, working together but clearly different. In addition I'd like to see some fan representation at board level from both clubs to raise concerns about identity and accessibility of all kinds. But for now all I see is a man who just wants top flight football and rugby and doesn't understand that sport is so much more than simply success on the pitch.
  12. One of three German clubs (along with Bayern Munich and Dortmund) that I want to visit. The club is constitutionally bound to represent the district of St Pauli and it's fans culture and politics. Add a cracking atmosphere and hey presto
  13. Bedminster born so Somerset
  14. I've used viagogo (begrudgingly) before and they didn't let me down. Never bought of a guy in the street as you never know. Like others have said you'll be paying big big bucks for a ticket that you cannot afford to be fake. Personally I'd just go and take it in without the worry of getting in.
