  1. Why isn’t there a Bristol City app?

    There's very little point in most apps from a user point of view. Most of the time they are simply mobile websites wrapped up in an app with additional tracking and data theft, usually they demand permissions they have no real need for and they make you accept terms and conditions which if you bothered reading them would make you realise you're sharing pretty much everything on your phone. There are very few things that can't be done well in a website delivered in a mobile browser with javascript and service workers these days, and that way you have far greater control over your privacy and intrusive advertising.
  2. Great performance, great result. Bit dicey at the back occasionally but thankfully Wednesday had nothing at all up front. How that lump is in the XI and Boyd was only on the bench I don't now. Third goal was exceptional and lovely to see Bobby get his hat trick. Well done City!

    Exactly how many ST holders do you think fall into the category that had the tiny reduction as opposed to those that had the increases? I mean a little bit of estimating is required here but it's not that difficult is it?

    I'm sorry are you arguing with the laws of maths now? All of the adults 22-64 in the Dolman and the Lansdown lower and the South Stand whether in the wings or not have had price rises from 4 to 18%. Does that somehow not constitute a majority?

    Look at this post where somebody did the math: That makes it pretty clear that the average increase is between 10 and 15% or five times inflation, particularly when you consider the numbers of supporters that buy each type of ticket. A very long way from a gross exaggeration.

    So they've climbed down half a step and now they're just ripping off children instead of banning them. Wonderful. Nowhere near enough, they're still trying to get away with price rises across the board that are about five times inflation.

    Anybody with the faintest idea about business knows what happens to businesses who betray their core "customers".

    No you don't, you plan for the most over the long term, and you do it with a bit of common sense and empathy i.e. try and retain loyalty first rather than optimising for once a year visitors who come to see man united, and try and make sure you're continually growing the core fan base by keeping kids coming along. This short sighted disaster of a policy does not achieve anything, it will result in at best an entirely short term and small revenue bump at the cost of a loss of loyalty in the core fanbase due to the justifiable feelings of betrayal.

    Whoever came up with the idea of pushing families around and stiffing supporters for price increases of about 7 times inflation should be fired immediately. Supporters have continued to follow the club through upheaval, despite shocking economic conditions with no growth in pay rises, massively increasing debt levels and lower standards of living and the reward they get is some ******* rich**** in a suit from an organisation that does nothing but employ overpaid managers decides to rip them off. **** off City.
  10. Bobby Reid, CAM?

    Bobby Reid isn't twice as effective in midfield, he's half as effective. There's a reason he's been a revelation this season and it's all to do with narrowing his responsibility to attacking and pressing, not marking or positioning. Moving him back into midfield would be an epic mistake.
  11. Messi

    He is without doubt the best there's ever been. He's eclipsed Pele, Maradona, Best and even Bob Taylor.
  12. Harry Kane - Dive or fouled!

    This is sometimes true when someone is running at full sprint speed and the touch catches them at the wrong point in their stride. It is not true with anything like the frequency that it is used to excuse blatant diving. Otherwise you'd see players falling over like this everywhere else on the pitch but they seem to do it around the opponent's 18 yard box about ten times as often. Funny that eh?
  13. Harry Kane - Dive or fouled!

    He chose to go down, and when a player does that they are cheating and should be banned.
  14. Harry Kane - Dive or fouled!

    You did, above. "GK did touch him so he was fouled." Not true. Contact does not mean there is a foul. Going down when you could carry on is cheating, which is what happened here.
  15. Harry Kane - Dive or fouled!

    And Deulofeu dives again tonight for Watford in a match where they've already benefited from the softest second yellow you'll ever see. Mind you any side with Hazard and Fabregas in deserves it.
