    So you're facepalming Mark for "not showing up" but are now admitting you were 15 minutes late for your pre-planned meeting having lost track of time?

    Good to see you keeping a sensible perspective on things Robbored.
  3. The Official Bristol City v Burton Albion Match Day Thread 12

    So not that decent then.
  4. Burton Ticket prices.

    NO. This is an unfair generalisation. I would happily watch us play Accrington Stanley if I was responsible only to myself. But due to family and other commitments I am not able to commit the time to watch us every week. Therefore, I will choose the fixtures that appeal the most - that normally means either the biggest opposition, the most crucial matches, or a discounted game. I would imagine this principle applies to many non-STH. It's not simply that we "don't want to watch". That's a little bit of season ticket holder superfan syndrome that I don't like.
  5. City - Joint 3rd highest spenders compared to turnover

    I don't think your Kylie analogy is necessarily fair. Watford, West Brom, Southampton, Stoke, Leicester, Swansea and Bournemouth are all clubs of similar (or smaller) size to City who have gone up and managed to establish themselves in the top division for extended periods of time. Other clubs such as Reading, Norwich and Boro have dropped out but continued to remain competitive at the top end of the Championship. Of course it has gone pear-shaped for some clubs, but I wouldn't say it's a majority - and it's impossible for every club to be successful all the time anyway.
  6. City - Joint 3rd highest spenders compared to turnover

    I keep hearing all the time how much money we've spent in the last couple of years. But this has to be offset against where we started from. After our promotion from L1 we started the season with a squad arguably weaker than the one that had gone up, and needed a large number of loans to make up the numbers. We needed to spend more money than many other teams in the division just to reach parity with them. Just because we've spent more than other teams recently does not mean we should necessarily expect to be doing better than them. In other words, we had to spend more just to catch up.
  7. Wales v ROI (Merged)

    Watching in Welsh so I'm not clear on the permutations. 19 points would be enough for Ireland for the playoffs, but 18 points wouldn't be enough for Wales if they equalised, is that right?
  8. Wales v ROI (Merged)

    Yeah I do appreciate the counter argument and there's no doubting the atmosphere at CCS is incredible. It also disproves the theory that modern stadia make for crap atmospheres. But having said that, the Millennium is more intimate than Wembley and capable of generating phenomenal atmospheres too! Looking on twitter a lot of the Wales supporters seem to have a bit of a superfan view about it - "if you didn't come when we were crap why should you come now". Never really liked that mentality. I would always rather see my team welcome more support, rather than behaving like some sort of exclusive club.
  9. Wales v ROI (Merged)

    Considering the relative atmosphere, desire, playing style and achievements in recent years...I don't blame them!
  10. Wales v ROI (Merged)

    Interesting. I think CCS has become a bit of a fortress for them so I understand it to a point. But I'm still surprised to see a massive game being played in a 35k stadium with a 70k stadium sitting empty a few miles down the road.
  11. Wales v ROI (Merged)

    Can't understand why they don't host massive games like this at the Millennium. It would have sold out for a game as big as this. Fans miss out on tickets and the Welsh FA miss out on money. Odd one.
  12. Unlucky Scotland

    Being married in to a Plaid Cymru-supporting Welsh family, I find the most effective response to any anti-English stance is sheer ambivalence. I just don't rise to it. I'll be wholeheartedly backing Wales tonight whilst getting my Mrs to translate S4C for me. That'll probably annoy them more than anything.

    I have literally no idea quite how I'm supposed to take this reply! Dry sarcasm or actually a Scrooge? Can't decide.

    That bloke Bob Cratchit who works for you loves it. Hope his little lad's OK, I heard he was poorly.

    Isn't the 'down' bit the exciting part of a rollercoaster?!
