  1. Apologies

    I'm sorry I started this, now!
  2. Apologies

    The amount of times I hear on live footy TV coverage the commentator apologising for any bad language picked up on the microphones from the crowd. Jeez, are there really people viewing at home out there who are genuinely offended? Possibly, there might be one or two strange people in the audience of sometimes millions who hear the W C or F word and need to resort to downing a bottle of brandy to recover from the shock but even that I find unlikely. So why do commentators waste their breath. Plus, it makes me think is this 2018 or 1918?
  3. Mangotsfield FC

    Yes, City won in extra time. Gerkin was in goal for City and with Nicky Hunt and Ryan Taylor also playing Bolasie had to go some to be the worst player on the pitch that night.
  4. Mangotsfield FC

    I can only think it was because Bolasie was the only one he was targeting but that was because Bolasie was absolutely dire that night. Maybe the stewards conceived this as racism or bordering upon it even though nothing remotely racist was shouted. I expect had Bolasie been white and been having a stinker and been getting dog's abuse nothing would've been said. So in a way the stewards were the ones being racist!
  5. Mangotsfield FC

    The secretary, programme editors and stadium announcer are all staunch City fans!
  6. Mangotsfield FC

    One of the central figures in those shenanigans was ticked off at Ashton Gate when City played Mangotsfield Utd in a Glos Cup game a few years ago. Bolasie was playing for City and his distribution was dire. His corners too were dreadful. The chap in question shouted out a couple of times, 'Give it to Bolasie,' and on one occasion when Mangotsfield sent in a good corner he shouted out, 'That's how to take a corner, Bolasie'. City fans as well as Mangotsfield supporters, and some in both camps like myself, were laughing. However, at halftime he was approached by a group of stewards and told, in no uncertain terms, to cut it out or he would be ejected!
  7. Motson.. final LIVE commentary Today Radio 5live 1.30 k.o.

    Think what it must be like for John Motson. Whenever he is out and about away from a match and opens his mouth to say something people in his vicinity look around and say, Where's the game?'.
  8. Spineless, gutless & pathetic..!

    After the previous two seasons of struggle at the start of this present campaign virtually everyone would've been happy with a mid-table position at the end of this season and many on here voiced such a hope before a ball was kicked. Rarely do teams just stay mid-table all season. Mid-table teams usually flirt with relegation or promotion at some stage. I would rather the latter even though it generates hope and then disappointment. Furthermore, we are still handily placed for a play off place at the end of the season. But if we finish a bit below, or even mid table we would've achieved what most on here would have been happy with pre season plus a cup semi final and a lot of kudos.
  9. Having viewed the Sheffield Wednesday forum these last couple of days I couldn't help noticing that it is similar in design to Otib. However, it seems that with newish posters they label them as Sheffield Wednesday Youth Team, those with more posts are Sheffield Wednesday Reserves and those, possibly with over a thousand posts are Sheffield Wednesday first teamers. This set me to thinking. I know that those of us who contribute a fiver a year to Otib appear in purple and are called supporters which is fair enough, but maybe if we adopted the Wednesday system and adapted it so that those who hadn't paid were called Bristol City trialists and those who had were called Bristol City Youth Team, Reserves or First Team dependant upon how many posts they had made it might encourage a few more to part with their fivers.

    Certainly an arresting sight. I bet if she contacted all the male City fan base by email tonight promising a night with her if we make it to the ground tomorrow you can be assured of a turnout close to 50,000 and if she stated that she was worried about all the black ice, slippery hills and police advice not to travel and thus wondered about just knocking it on the head you can be assured that all 50,000 would tell her that it is no problem and see her at three pm.

    Quite agree. It is very unfortunate for those who will encounter difficulty and I have a great deal of sympathy for them. However, as Nogbad and others have stated, the club have done all they can to ensure the fixture proceeds. There is no point in investing in undersoil heating if roads for miles around haven't got under-tarmac heating! In theory, we could have a couple of thousand fans who travel from Vladivostok to every home game. If they were snowed in and rendered it hazardous for them to journey to Bristol then it would be daft to postpone the game at AG when the pitch etc was in perfect condition and Bristol was bathed in sunshine.

    I've just purchased a twenty seater sleigh with a team of huskies on eBay. I'm going to make a killing tomorrow transporting everyone to the ground.

    I hadn't heard that Jose Mourinhio's brother had taken over Bristol's public transport system...jeez, any excuse to park the bus!

    No it's because they are wearing white today.

    Not seeking to worry you unduly, Dave, but some of those footprints in the snow look remarkably similar to those of a sasquatch. It seems, following the trail, that it has made a beeline for the back of your van. Might be an idea, before setting off for the Gate, to check first to see if it can play at centre-back as we need a presence back there if Baker is absent.
