  1. The Sheffield Wednesday v Bristol City Match Day Thread 17

    As they don't have a game on Tuesday (Moved as both Rovers and Rotherham out of the FA cup) they could be in or around the drop zone by the time they next play
  2. Manchester gonna ground share with Rotherham :-)
  3. RIP Darren Hawkins

    Sad news. Never got to see him play but knew his dad well.
  4. Cardiff - Back to 12 Noon on Saturday!

    The bit in bold is what is getting to me. I can't remember a game day/time being moved twice. If the game isn't made a 'bubble' game it could be argued that with it being on Sky on a Friday night, less would travel making it easier to police? Now it's not a Sky game more may travel, possibly increasing police numbers?
  5. Cardiff - Back to 12 Noon on Saturday!

    I'm currently working that Saturday morning (finish at 13:15). Should I try and see if I can swap hours (unlikely) or wait until the day/time is moved again?
  6. Cardiff - Back to 12 Noon on Saturday!

    Absolute joke. Not impressed at all.
  7. At what level have you played football?

    Only ever played Sunday football in and around WsM but did once turn out for my brothers team (Trust House Forte) in Torquay. The game was reffed by Lester Shapter. That's the closest I got to footballing stardom!
  8. Would City games sell out with cheaper prices?

    The "residents' parking scheme" has been mentioned a couple of times. This got me thinking. The stadium and facilities are excellent but parking and transport could still be an issue for some? Maybe if decent 'reasonably priced' parking was available (Long Ashton Park & Ride for example), this may encourage more people to attend? How about securing a deal with the Long Ashton P&R and offering the matchday ticket that includes parking rather than reduce the cost of the ticket? Might this encourage more to turn up?
  9. Is Bottom 6 More Likely?

    Found it on the BCFC site now..... https://www.bcfc.co.uk/news/johnson-reiterates-need-for-three-transfer-windows/ Lee Johnson has reiterated it could take three transfer windows to get his City team where he wants it to be. Appointed in February, the head coach oversaw an incredibly busy summer in which a total of 33 deals were done at Ashton Gate, including 12 new arrivals to the first team squad. But Johnson admits there is still a gap to bridge between City and the very best Sky Bet Championship sides. “I see a few too many things that upset me against the top teams,” he said. “We have to grow and keep getting better – whether that’s through nurturing our own or bringing players in. “We need to continue on our path of developing our players because we have to give them the opportunity. “But if they can’t take it, they have to drop down the pecking order and someone else comes in over the top of them. “It sounds a bit negative, but that’s just the process of an evolving football club. “This is why I’ve said we need three transfer windows, because clearly there’s still business to be done to match the top couple of teams.” “It sounds a bit negative, but that’s just the process of an evolving football club."
  10. Is Bottom 6 More Likely?

    From the BBC.......... Bristol City head coach Lee Johnson says it will "probably take three transfer windows" to shape his squad the way he would like. The Robins are planning for next season having secured their safety in the Championship with two games to go. "We've got to get the recruitment right and it'll be tough this window," Johnson, 34, told BBC Radio Bristol. "It's important we get the numbers (in the squad) right because it's going to be difficult to manage everybody." Johnson, who has been at Aston Gate since February, thinks the decision by Fifa to scrap the emergency loan system, meaning clubs will only be able to sign players during the summer and January transfer windows from 2016-17, will make life even more of a challenge. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/36214945
  11. Proper Test Today

    Brings back memories of Mr Keegans Newcastle. Almost won the league. Almost :-)
  12. Next Round Draw

    Home draw needed or Bournemouth Swansea or Southampton away for me (assuming we cant play WHU away).
  13. Sky think we'll finish 6th!

    My mistake. Just saw 57 as the lowest and thought that no team would be bottom with 57 points come next May.
  14. Sky think we'll finish 6th!

    I don't think it's points @Reddrive but also think it will be tight in the top half.
  15. hindsight

    Far to early to say. One league game, at home, unfancied opposition.
