  1. Leeds Utd Sat 21st Oct

    By "flavour" do you mean experience the West Stand? We're talking about a £13 difference between the seats glynriley pointed out in the SS and the £41 you mention. These are adult prices, so assuming they are adults they have a choice watching from their non preferred seat in their budget or coughing up £13 (the fiver they saved from subs because their game got called off and 2 pints). Am I missing something here? If they have a £25ish budget sit in the SS, if they have a strong desire to sit in the west stand drink 2 less pints on a Saturday/have 2 cans at home. Pretty sure if they go out in Bristol all Saturday night they'll be spending circa £80-100 on some of the following; Ubers, takeaways, club entries, cocktails, ciggies, possibly recreational substances etc...
  2. Lansdown Upper

    Why? Purely because of the view, for me the first few rows of the Upper central blocks are the best seats in the house, I have sat and had season tickets all over the ground pre and post development so my opinion is based on my experience. If/when I can purchase a season card up there I will. It's personal preference, it's the same as when I go to the cinema I like to sit in the middle, when I go to gigs/festivals I like to be front and central. I agree the view, comfort, facilities and experience has improved throughout the stadium, but the most expensive/premium seats are the most expensive for a reason, if these 'superior' view tickets are available at the same price as tickets with an 'inferior' view on this promotion I would like to experience them and show off our much improved stadium to friends. Also I couldn't get 3 together in my regular block (W16) anyway. I do appreciate your point about day trippers/cheap tickets, but unfortunately my visitors fall in to that category.
  3. Lansdown Upper

    I'm planning on bringing a couple of friends as part of the 'mates rates' deal, have put off buying tickets as was hoping they'd open upstairs, probably not the only one. Unfortunately they haven't, now struggling to find three seats together. Do we think that the club may still open the Upper West Stand? They did last year for the 'mates rates' deal in either the Blackburn or Burton game.
  4. At what level have you played football?

    Mostly Somerset Senior and Suburban for the last 20+ years, began finding it harder competing with the whipper snappers, also didn't want to block whipper snappers at my own club. Semi-retired from Saturdays last year, I'd say retired now, but will probably help out if/when required. I've been playing in the Bristol Casual League (veterans) for the last few years which suits me perfectly, one game every few weeks on a Sunday morning, brilliant lads, decent football, more emphasis on technique/ability than pace/fitness, played in the right (Corinthian) spirit.
  5. Flinty and Maggs

    Anyway, back to the topic. I think the club handled the Flint situation well, we should set the value of our players on long contracts value in this highly inflated market. The Hörður move was last minute and a bit left field, we don't know enough about the terms of the deal, why it broke down or who was to be blame for it not going through, it sounds as though we could've acted quicker or knew more about the various European window closing times, potentially our blunder. Not excusing the club, but why not have the closing time euro-wide? How come Spanish clubs can still sign today? Why are Scotland and England different? I reckon the club, the management and most fans would've been happy and wished either player well if any acceptable offer and terms were received, they were not, or at least not in time. It is now a problem the management team have to deal with, fortunately the players involved seem like good lads and are unlikely to cause dressing room upset unlike certain former players if things aren't going their way.
  6. Flinty and Maggs

    We are not his first club, probably won't be his last. However, I agree that it is unlikely he'd be here if he hadn't played here. It happens, football is fickle. Was Shearer the right and most experienced man for the Newcastle job a while back, no, if Rafa walks, is his name likely to be linked again, yes, would they be crazy to appoint him, yes.
  7. Flinty and Maggs

    Also, no one deserves to be compared with TP, when he was here I despised him as much as your little like minded group hate Lee, although my hatred was for the the way he had us playing, how he was running the club and his transfers. My hatred was was based on what I was watching, not my refusal to get over a bad run/grudge like you and the anti-Lee brigade.
  8. Flinty and Maggs

    Thanks for speaking for the crowd. Although I think you go to a different Ashton Gate to me, none of the many people I know down there, speak to or sit near seem to dislike Lee as much as you and a few of your buddies, maybe Lee isn't universally popular yet, but I get the feeling most people have or are warming to him and his ideas. Genuine question, are you one of the 'boycotters'? I ask as you talk as though you've not seen us play this season. In August we scored 15 goals (hardly "not enough goals") and played some good attacking football btw, maybe if you spend less time having a go at the management and come and watch you'd see for yourself. One more thing, what has Lee's playing career got to do with anything? Personally I would've been delighted if I was "not much of player" playing in the Championship, including a play-off final at Wembley.
  9. Gas in the next round anyone?

    Yep, absolutely boring, who wants to dream of getting to Wembley? Who wants be in the last 32 with the big boys and the knuckle dragging, dog fiddlers? Wish we were out, wish I followed the Allsvenskan, Swedish football is so entertaining, not to mention the standard is right up there too. Anyway, I'm off to post on a forum of a Scandinavian team I watch once in a blue moon, but know everything about.
  10. We're 3 games in, can't get carried away one way or the other. Although we are 9th and are next two are home to sides in the bottom three. Some people here need to calm down. Our results in our last 15 lg games are P15 W7 D4 L4, not what I'd call meltdown form, in fact outstanding when you consider where we were.
  11. Why keep Engvall

    Out on loan [170] Note: Flags indicate national team as defined under FIFA eligibility rules. Players may hold more than one non-FIFA nationality. No. Position Player — GK Jamal Blackman (on loan to Sheffield United until 30 June 2018) — GK Nathan Baxter (on loan to Woking until 30 June 2018) — GK Jared Thompson (on loan to Chippenham Town until 30 June 2018) — GK Bradley Collins (on loan to Forest Green Rovers until 30 June 2018) — DF Fankaty Dabo (on loan to Vitesse until 30 June 2018) — DF Matt Miazga (on loan to Vitesse until 30 June 2018) — DF Ola Aina (on loan to Hull City until 30 June 2018) — DF Michael Hector (on loan to Hull City until 30 June 2018) — DF Todd Kane (on loan to Groningen until 30 June 2018) — DF Jay Dasilva (on loan to Charlton Athleticuntil 30 June 2018) — DF Kurt Zouma (on loan to Stoke City until 30 June 2018) — DF Tomáš Kalas (on loan to Fulham until 30 June 2018) — MF Lucas Piazon (on loan to Fulham until 30 June 2018) No. Position Player — MF Victorien Angban (on loan to Waasland-Beveren until 30 June 2018) — MF Charlie Colkett (on loan to Vitesse until 30 June 2018) — MF Mason Mount (on loan to Vitesse until 30 June 2018) — MF Ruben Loftus-Cheek (on loan to Crystal Palace until 30 June 2018) — MF Kasey Palmer (on loan to Huddersfield Town until 30 June 2018) — MF Danilo Pantić (on loan to Partizan until 30 June 2018) — MF Mario Pašalić (on loan to Spartak Moscowuntil 30 June 2018) — MF Josimar Quintero (on loan to Rostov until 30 June 2018) — MF Marco van Ginkel (on loan to PSV until 30 June 2018) — FW Tammy Abraham (on loan to Swansea until 30 June 2018) — FW Izzy Brown (on loan to Brighton & Hove Albion until 30 June 2018) — FW Ike Ugbo (on loan to Barnsley until 30 June 2018) Same reason CFC keep these players. Most unlikely to make it there, but if they're ever good enough to get in the first XI they will have saved a fortune, if they're not, they'll sell them and might make a pretty penny. Inevitably you will have some losses. This is only a selection of players not in the first team, their are many more under contract and in the youth teams. If Gus makes it here, brilliant, if not we've not lost a great deal, in football terms. Hopefully he'll be back in a few months ready to challenge for a place, if not, then another loan beckons. Then someone else can bring this topic up in January.
  12. OTIB changes?

    Looks great. Although when I select a topic it doesn't take me to the first unread post, always to the op ☹️ Anyone else experiencing the same?

  15. Average Attendance (Merged)

    The Atyeo represents just over 15% of our capacity. I don't see the problem with giving it all to away teams who require it, maybe when offering it to the clubs who could fill it we do so with the proviso they offer us 15%, not the minimum 10% required (if they can) in the return fixture. It will increase both teams gates for their fixtures. Win-win for both clubs, will enhance atmosphere, revenue and our reputation, should we then take up our full 15% in the corresponding fixture. Reciprocal agreements could benefit all.
