  1. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    Yes I stand corrected. It was Chichester. My memory tells me that my next match was against Dartford in the second round. We won 8-2. my third match was in the League against Notts County. We won that match 6-0 scoring all our goals in the first half.... so at the end I commented on the lack of goals. Happy days
  2. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    Football League club Gillingham is in north Kent, it’s one of the Medway towns. A difficult place to get to as I discovered when I saw us play there. There is another Gillingham which is in the South of England (possibly Dorset). I remember it as I saw my first Bristol City match when we played them in the FA Cup 1st round on 5 November 1960 (I think). We won 11-0 (a club record) with John Atyeo scoring 5 goals
  3. Poll - Flint or Taylor

    Both have been icons for us (Flint still is of course). Taylor only came to us at the end of his career. When he first came Flint wasn’t anything like consistent enough, but he has matured and grown as a player. Currently he’s the best centre back in the Championship, he’s young enough to improve further and star in the Premiership too. Both will feature highly in the memory of City fans, but Flint is playing at a higher level. Its always difficult to compare players from different eras but one has to remember the league standard at the time. By way of illustration John Galley was a legend and will always be remembered fondly, but John Atyeo was someone who was at different level. Neville and Riley were legends from our time back in the ‘80s but they wouldn’t get into our team today. However for many they are still (rightly) regarded as legends. To summarise, Shaun Taylor arrived as an experienced player and for us was a fabulous third tier centre back and leader who is regarded as a City legend. Aiden Flint arrived as an inexperienced centre back who has improved immeasurably and is only now approaching his peak. His goal scoring prowess and leadership qualities compensate for any defensive weaknesses. Just enjoy Flint while we can - hopefully he will stay with us & lead us to the promised land, if not he will be a similar asset at another club, almost certainly in the Premiership.
  4. COD's wallop

    O'Dowda is a good player, in time he will be an even better one. Last night he got one shot in that was nearly a goal, the Bolton keeper made a fine save. What did concern me is that he always attacked inside a player and never went outside. I appreciate that he very much prefers his left foot, but surely he must use his right foot occasionally too? If not he needs some coaching. Similarly someone could do with coaching him so that he goes occasionally attack on the outside when playing on the right. He is a gifted player I acknowledge that if he had the ability to use both feet and to attack on both sides of a defence he would be one hell of a player. My view is that he has improved a lot this season and especially as the season has gone on. We have a decent coaching set up, maybe the coaching staff can further develop him? To put this in context, he is an asset who could be even better.
  5. Lucic

    I thought Lucic played well against Cheltenham. He commanded his box; caught balls and stopped shots. A feature that makes me slightly nervous is that he is so cool when on the ball that once or twice I thought he was too cool, in other words maybe he should have hoofed it away. Once he was nearly caught out and the supporter next to me commented that he didn't think he'd get away with that in the Championship. His style is different and perhaps we need to get used to that. im happy to see him compete for the number one spot with Frankie.
  6. FT 3-0 our first trophy of the season. The Johnson Cup!
  7. More substitutions- Morrell & Engvall both off. They both had good games
  8. Engvall for our third goal. He looks a decent striker
  9. Another fine move - Morrell shoots just over. we are so much better in this half with good movement both on and off the ball
  10. 2-0 fabulous goal with a lot of fine interplay . Reid scores
  11. Good run and shot from Paterson. just over
  12. 1 nil up engvall with a good finish
  13. HT 0-0. Of the back 4, only Kelly came across with any credit, he looks composed on the ball. I'd like to see more of Engvall in 2nd half, he laid off a chance for Farmer. Scappy game so far although we occasionally string a good move together. O'Dowda's fabulous run was the highlight of the half
