  1. Our premier league starting 11

    One of our own, He's one of our own, Luvver Lionel Messi He's one of our own.
  2. What causes our mid season slump?

    The exception that roves the rule?
  3. LJ - You need to be careful

    I hope you haven't just realised this James.
  4. pens and paper?

    It's the old fashioned alternative to an app ( that we don't have!)
  5. What causes our mid season slump?

    I thought a mid season slump was written into the rules, as Bristol City fans would be unable to cope with a stress free season where the team was on form, playing good football and getting positive results pretty well every game.
  6. Why isn’t there a Bristol City app?

    What's an app?
  7. Jaap Stam

    Perhaps 10 of them were own goals and massive deflections?
  8. Lloyd Kelly

    Mrs Downend could teach a few how to cross, and she's got artificial knees!
  9. England squad v Netherlands & Italy

    Agree completely MR, and it's for this reason that I have not "retired" myself from international football. Given some of the players now vying for selection it's not looking a bad decision, as even at my age I could be in with a shout, and am keeping the Santiago's ( gives my age away) dubbinned up, just in case Gareth gives me a call.
  10. Wind up merchants on here

    Wind up merchants seem to appear just like clockwork.
  11. That's the half time score. What happens thereafter is anyone's guess!
  12. Flint for England WC Squad

    ..but only if it was on back to front.
  13. Palace v Man Utd

    You are probably right Maltshoveller. However, the reality for the top clubs these days is that you won't attract the very best players on the promise of winning FA Cups. Top, top players want to go to clubs playing in the champions league, allied to paying top salaries, and the champions league gives increased revenue and higher exposure leading to better sponsorship and advertising deals, all of which enables top clubs to afford top salaries. I grew up at a time when the magic of the FA Cup was real for fans, players and owners and the winners went into a major European Cup competition. It was also the time when only the champions played in the European Cup, which was a proper cup competition. Football is big business, and the owners are mostly hard nosed businessmen with little interest in the romance of the FA Cup as compared to the financial rewards on offer from the Champions League.
  14. Palace v Man Utd

    Deja vu!
  15. Palace v Man Utd

    Told 'em!!
