  1. Anybody else think we’ll win tonight?

    Sounds good to me. COYR
  2. Jimmy Armfield RIP

    RIP Jimmy.
  3. Best city goal you have seen

    Not sure. I think it was a 1-1 draw but can't be certain. All I can really remember is that it was a dipping volley from very far out.
  4. Best city goal you have seen

    Really difficult to choose. The ones that stand out to me (in no particular order) are: Murray v Oldham Wilkshire's 40 yarder v Tranmere Tinnion at Stoke, also at Anfield and a free kick at home v Cambridge. Nicky Morgan v Blackburn - very similar to Thorpe's goal against the fewers in that 3-2 game. Riley's header at Wembley in 1986 - that goal followed fantastic long passes by Walsh and Pritchard. Tomlin's goal when he flicked it over the defender and then smashed it in. Bob Taylor's volley at Cardiff in 1989. His volley at the Vetch Field that season was even better, but I wasn't at that game so can't count it. Flint's rabona v Walsall - I don't think I'll see a goal from a central defender like that again in my lifetime. Joe Bryan v Manchester. What a move and shot. Sproule's goal when he ran the length of the pitch (v Southampton?) was also memorable - not least because there was that heart stopping moment when he almost ran it out of play!
  5. Interesting debate other side of the severn

    Tomlin's career seems to have really faltered. I thought that playing under an experienced manager like Warnock, who presumably has dealt with big egos in the past, might have helped but he seems to have had no positive impact at Cardiff this season. Thank god we got rid.
  6. Would you welcome / respect an improved Rovers?

    Definitely not. Can't stand them. The sooner they are playing their matches on the Downs the better.
  7. What is our best XI?

    Agree, although personally I'd add Pack and Diedhiou...and then we've got a core of 10 with one starting place to play for. Tough decisions ahead for LJ when everyone is fit.
  8. Was it a penalty

    Completely agree - this idea about players being "entitled" to fall over at the merest contact is one thing about the game that really annoys me.
  9. Favourite ' mistress ' clubs

    None really. Like with a woman I wouldn't have the stamina for more than one! City provide more than enough emotional trauma. Having said that, I occasionally look out for Exeter's and Carlisle's results. No idea why. I used to quite like Wolves as a second team as a young boy because of their name, although I knew nothing about them. Bloody hate them now.
  10. Plymouth central defender's illness.

    Best wishes to him. Hope he makes a speedy recovery.
  11. First game

    Lots of options for drinks. If you've got a bit of time you could get a ferry (from near Temple Meads station or the city centre) to the SS Great Britain, which has three great pubs nearby (the Cottage is on the waterfront and has great views from outside, The Orchard is a great little pub tucked away and the Nova Scotia has already been mentioned). From there it's only a 10 minute walk to the ground with The Coopers and Rising Sun not far away. Hotwells Road is another option - doesn't take too long to walk to Ashton Gate along there from the city centre with plenty of pubs en route. Alternatively North Street near the ground is full of bars and places to eat. I agree with thone posters who have praised Edinburgh - I really enjoyed it when I visited. Fascinating place.
  12. RIP Cyrille Regis

    Sad news. RIP Cyrille - an iconic player.
  13. Matty Taylor - Long term future here?

    I've been impressed with his workrate and some of his link-up play, but he hasn't made as much of an impact as I expected when we signed him. Yes he probably needs a run of games for us to see him at his best, but I'm not sure he's really done enough to warrant that run of games. Considering he arrived with a good scoring record he hasn't looked much of a threat in front of goal - either because we aren't playing to his strengths or because the step up has been too much for him.
  14. Are we lacking 'real' pace?

    Mostly agree. I think O'Dowda has real pace but that's it really.
  15. There is a problem

    Interesting lineup, with the solid back three and utilising the energy of Bryan and Brownhill as wingbacks. One question - why Kent rather than Paterson?
