  1. Subs - LJ gets it wrong again

    So because it didn't pay off it was the wrong decision. Well obviously, once again we're all experts after the fact whereas if Diony had come on and scored the winner this thread wouldn't exist. Just like a hell of a lot of people were saying Reid had no future at the club until Johnson decided to play him as a striker. Now Championship top scorer. We can all be Captain Hindsight when we want to be, sometimes it works, sometimes it won't. But the person who is best placed to make these decisions is the person who sees the players every day and knows what each one offers.
  2. Security Checks

    Unfortunately, as with all establishments in this country, security and security checks will almost always be reactive as opposed to pre-emptive. What i'm saying is, it will take an 'incident' at a football ground/match in this country before blanket checks will be implemented across the board. Yes certain locations will be an exception to this rule, but generally they have the money and resources in place to run these checks efficiently. Finances are the point of failure in this, establishments will not 'waste' money on employing more people, installing more equipment etc to conduct stringent security checks on everyone until there is a 'valid' reason to do so. Unfortunately, this is almost always after the fact that an incident has occurred, proving the need. Rightly or wrongly, Ashton Gate's current security posture, whilst not enough to thoroughly check everyone, will be sufficient to deal with what is deemed as the current risk level.
  3. Section 82 handbags

    Have to agree, I thought 'You're just a good man Utd' would have been more apt
  4. Your OTIB messages to the lads today....

    Absolutely no pressure lads, you've already done a hell of a job in this cup run, making memories we'll all keep forever. Go out there and enjoy yourselves, we'll be behind you 100%, whatever the result. But as we're here, we might as well ******* win. COYR
  5. Anybody else think we’ll win tonight?

    Guardiola quoted as saying 'it would be unfair not to play the players who have gotten us this far in the competition'. (or words to that effect). Please do, I really like that Mangala bloke, think he's quality.......
  6. Ryan Kent - recalled from Freiburg, and now signed on loan.

    I'll admit to not knowing much about him apart from what has been said on here. I did just ask my Liverpool supporting colleague what he was like though and he said the following; 'I saw him play in a pre-season tournament for us and he looked amazing, thought this guy needs to be in the first team squad this season'.
  7. Mapping our fan base

    Shefford, Bedfordshire (but likely to change)
  8. Manchester Pubs (Merged)

    Just giving this a bump as it would be good to decide on a pub/area of pubs that we can all get together at. Is the Printworks area the general consensus then?
  9. Man City Betting Thread (Merged)

    Bet365 will give us a +1.0 asian handicap at 5/1. For those not in the betting know how, essentially we get a virtual 1-0 head start so Man City will have to win by two goals for the bet to lose. If they win by a single goal then the stake gets refunded. For those who want to play it safer, you can get a +2.0 asian handicap at just over 2/1. Looks decent (not sure if better prices elsewhere).
  10. The Semi final

    Yeah I forgot about the stupid away goals rule in this competition. So if I remember correctly, if the scores are level after both legs then extra time is played. If the scores are still level after extra time then the away goals rule comes into play. Nice and simple
  11. The Semi final

    Can't wait for Tuesday night, as others have said, Man Utd was a night no one will forget, whatever happens in the semi-finals now is just a bonus and a very proud moment for all connected with the club. We may well get a hammering, but even if we do concede 2, 3, 4 or whatever, I hope (i'm sure we will) the nearly 8000 strong Red Army continue to sing and support no matter what happens. The lads deserve that, and as a famous film once said; 'let's make them remember the time they played Bristol City'. COYR
  12. Away game allocated seat etiquette

    Yeah i'd imagine you're right, I think the majority will stand. In my personal experience though I have seen people come to the back of the stand at any away game, insist on the seat on their ticket and then proceed to tell people to sit down because they can't see so it does happen. In my opinion it's even more likely to happen at this game.
  13. Away game allocated seat etiquette

    I actually think this is a good point, regardless of the debate about whether it should be unreserved or not, or stand at the back/sit at the front etc. There are inevitably going to be a LOT of people going to this game who don't regularly attend away games. (Before anyone jumps down my throat, they are of course as entitled as anyone else is.) The point i'm making is that I think that there could actually be a lot of aggro on the night. Those who regularly go and head to the back (or front if you want to sit) will inevitably be asked to move by those who want to sit in their seats, those seats will then be surrounded by people standing so complaints/arguments will ensue, stewards will have to get involved and so on and so forth. Even though I always head to the back as I enjoy standing for away games, I am under no illusion that I am probably going to have to sit in my allocated seat for this one. Otherwise with the sheer numbers of us going, chaos is likely to ensue.
  14. Manchester City Away Tickets - SOLD OUT

    Worse than this the Man City fan who replied has told him the following; 'if you do get a ticket, stay quiet/sensible and no colours and you should have no problem'
  15. Manchester City Away Tickets - SOLD OUT

    Seen this on the Man City forum?
