  1. England squad v Netherlands & Italy

    Wellbeck FFS. I give up. The only person who rates him is Danny Wellbeck. Right up himself and a total waste of space.
  2. The Bristol City v Ipswich Town Match Day Thread 38

    What was the attendance today? I'm wondering if potd is dropping along with our recent form.
  3. The Bristol City v Ipswich Town Match Day Thread 38

    FFS ref.
  4. The Bristol City v Ipswich Town Match Day Thread 38

    Probably - and don't call me shirley.
  5. The Bristol City v Ipswich Town Match Day Thread 38

    We have absolutely no-one who can cross a ball in our team.
  6. The Bristol City v Ipswich Town Match Day Thread 38

    Looking at the scars on Callum's ankle it does make you wonder what longer term effect it might have. Shame for such a young player who was really starting to look the business.
  7. Luke Steel contract

    I think we should be looking for a new number one, with Fielding as cover, and let him move on.
  8. Turning work in progress into promotion

    Seems to me that our best form of the season came when we had maximum injuries and pretty few options. Lee tried out a formation with Reid as a false 9 and it worked a treat. When the team got frazzled we had no options who could maintain the same style of play. Those players he signed in January didn't help as they didn't fit into that formation. He has been chopping and changing again now he has more options and we've forgotten what was working before. It's a mixture of poor signings and LJ failing to pick a team that matches the formation that worked so well for us last year.
  9. The Burton Albion FC v Bristol City FC Match Day Thread 37

    You do realise that he already has an experienced manager helping him out don't you?

    Worry ye not. Ryan Kent has been warming up. Lee's stroke of genius will be to bring on the new, less effective version of Freeman at HT.
  11. How to counter Bristol Sport's attitude

    I respect your view and the time you have taken to set out what you feel. Maybe the fact that I have only ever gone in a group of two or three and we've just moved around the ground affects my viewpoint. It does feel a bit like the working class heroes trying to stand up to the rich b**"* telling them where to sit though. Your idyll of groups of grey-haired ancients huddled together in the seats they've had forever isn't really something I recognise. Hey maybe I'm just a bit out of touch. It still sounds like the fans telling the club that they want THESE seats at THESE reasonable prices. It's a business not a social club where everyone can vote on what they think the rules should be.
  12. How to counter Bristol Sport's attitude

    Sorry I know that my view seems to be out of kilter with the majority on here. I understand people being annoyed that the club has increased prices for kids in particular. Is it not the case that they are still pretty cheap if you sit in the family area though? So the real gripe seems to be that you will have to sit somewhere different than usual. If I go to a concert or the theatre I expect to pay premium prices for the best seats. Surely this is just common sense. Maybe they should've thought of this before and not got themselves in this mess now. But what grates with me is this sense of entitlement many fans seem to have.
  13. How to counter Bristol Sport's attitude

    Yeah I have been a city fan for over forty years thanks. I go through the same emotional ups and downs as most of us do following this club. What I don't do is assume that gives me any right to sit in a particular bit of the ground or tell SL what prices he can charge. I have been deliberately extreme in my view that it's just a business. For me some posters are extreme the other way - it's my club and those **** who own it shouldn't be allowed to price me out of my seat. I try to put myself in SL's place and think how I'd feel if I was being told I should be subsidising fans so they can keep the seats they've always had.

    Because the demand for football in those locations still exists of course. Rangers were like us in that a businessman came forward to take them on weren't they?
  15. How to counter Bristol Sport's attitude

    I don't think your argument is based on logic it's more an emotional perspective. To me it is self-evident that you need someone to own and manage any football club. Those who have have supported the same club for years feel an emotional attachment to it which is different of course to ordinary businesses. However that is probably a bit irrational and leads to muddled thinking. If you would rather wind us up and resurrect bcfc in the image of Hereford I think you will be in a minority.
