    Tick... f*****g tock.... http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-bristol-42315621
  2. Fearing these injuries will do us...

    See where you’re coming from, I can just imagine the outcry and bluster on here and elsewhere, if after all hype and discussion on tickets for the Man U match, it ended up City reserves/U23’s V Man U reserves/U23’s. Although after yesterday’s result, I would guess Man U will want to win the cups to make up for coming 2nd in the league...... Its a lot of games in a short period on a squad so full of injuries and I share the concern that it could lead to even more injuries, even if they are minor, that will still impact on our performance.

    It’ll be no surprise if they score before half time

    What don’t you understand about that? Bristol council is either hung or on a knife edge of hung and has been for years, party politics stop anything getting done, how could I or anyone other individual change that?
  6. New Arena

    It’s not just the Mayors, it the councils complete incompetence and lack of ambition, invention and a reluctance to invest in the future for the last 40 years. (Maybe even longer).
  7. New Arena

    Why on earth would I leave a decent job, to become vilified and criticised by people, because whilst I think that Bristol council and latterly the two Mayors, are a complete shambles, one person is never going to change that.

    Lost me. If you think making a ring road and rather than have slip roads on and off, you decide roundabouts and traffic lights are better, if you think removing a flyover that kept traffic moving and reducing dual carriageways to a single lane, bus lanes and cycle lanes that come to an abrupt end and the cause a bottleneck are good ideas by those elected to be in charge, you have a strange thought process.
  9. New Arena

    Metrobus - white elephant, laughing stock, criminal waste of taxpayers money, will contribute to to City’s chronic traffic issues, will benefit a minority, ill thought out and conceived. I’m hoping I’ll be proved wrong, but I doubt it, the shambolic shower of shit that run the traffic management in Bristol leave with with a feeling of despondency with every announcement and project...... how many times do you see signs saying “Apologies for any disruption, whilst we carry out improvements” I am struggling to think of one “improvement” that has improved traffic flow. A ring road that has roundabouts and traffic lights instead of slip roads, dual carriageway narrowing to one lane, removing the flyover at Temple Gate, just a couple of examples of the councils desire to clog the City with traffic, for many no viable public transport is in place and for those of us who aren’t in the first flush of youth, Bristol is a hilly City to cycle round, as well as it not being a pleasant experience.

    Christine Keeler has died today, a famous name from the 60’s
  11. Today’s good deed.

    Good deed done today. This morning i popped into Waitrose and I was behind an old lady in the queue. Her bill came to £54.27 but when she counted out all her change she only had just under £50. I thought she was probably someone’s Nan and I’d like to think someone would have helped my Nan out when she was alive and i thought...well it's xmas after all. She didn’t want me to help her but I insisted, and in no time we had all her shopping back on the shelves .

    Is there a video of this.....
  13. Just a speculative post really, but I was thinking, watching today’s performance, which was a great effort with some fantastic build up play, how much difference would a top quality striker make, I think today’s game could have seen us score 3 more if the finishing/awareness in the box matched the build up. If this had been Tammy’s season here, instead of last, I imagine he would have nearer 40 goals.
