  1. Where will we finish now?

    9th
  2. Katie Hopkins

    nebristolred: The only person on TV for whom I actually have to turn it over when I see them. Even that **** Piers Morgan is watchable. KH has a career based purely on inciting frustrations and internal hatred, based on the fact that she more often than not knows how to get ever so close to the line without actually crossing it. A vile waste of oxygen, she's basically a walking example of a tabloid newspaper. That's no way to refer to The Daily Mirror!!
  3. Racism at football

    You're most unlikely to get any sensible comment or offering from Dastardly Red. Just check her post back in May 2017 under Politics and Current Affairs on the subject of 'Can a true Tory really appreciate art or music' (or some such carp). This person is either a wind-up merchant or a nut job - or both!
  4. Harveys Bristol Sherry

    One bottle for sale. Bottled in 1973 to commemorate the 600th anniversary of the City and Council of Bristol. Contents virtually certainly undrinkable 44 years on!! No packaging. Neck foil capsule rather faded. £50 inc p & p to any UK postal address.
  5. Barry Bannan?

    Why not a double signing - of Wallace AND Gromitt?
  6. Don't know what to think of Manchester after this decision

    BCFCFinker: Snowflake is a derogatory, and somewhat ironic, term used by people who don't like being told they are talking shite. Actually, the term 'Snowflake' is used by people who don't like being told what to do say/do/think by other people talking shite (eg social-media wielding, offended-at-everything-on-behalf-of-everyone 'Snowflakes')!
  7. Don't know what to think of Manchester after this decision

    Leveller - Manchester United are free to refuse to hire out their facilities to people they deem unsuitable surely? What if it was BNP or KKK or whatever? I hold no torch for Lizard Boy but; 1) I don't think anyone has ever accused him of belonging to the BNP or KKK etc 2) Manchester United had no intention of refusing to hire out their facilities to him until the little snowflakes on social media agitated for them to do so 3) Slowly but surely, free speech is being strangled in this country
  8. Luke Shaw/ jo Bryan.

    Poached eggs - or scrambled eggs?
  9. Eni Aluko / Mark Sampson (Merged)

    I knew very little about this case until this morning when the lady in question was interviewed on BBC Breakfast News following a bit of a build-up. I sat watching the interview intently, wondering just what had caused yet another accusation of racism in sport ...... and then the explanation came out .... followed by a tearful moment. I shook my head very sadly at being reminded, yet again, of just how far and how fast this country has sunk when it comes to the application of common sense to any situation. Here's my summary; Fading sports star with no sense of humour or proportion whatsoever suffers inappropriate jibe and, rather than responding in kind at the time, decides to play the usual unchallengeable race card and get her 15 minutes of fame. We're all doomed, I tell 'ee.
  10. Flint

    Hi Monkeh: I think, as Billy said, if we had added just 2 or 3 decent players to the promotion-winning squad, we'd not have struggled as we did and we'd need not have brought in so many players later on and diluted that promotion-winning squad as we panicked!
  11. Joe 'Art........

    Twice in a row from about 30 years out? Neither were anywhere near the corner nor were they ´thunderous´ shots. Blimey - some shooting!!
  12. Birminghams next Full Time manager-SC

    Hope it all comes good for him either at Brum or elsewhere. Wish it'd worked out better for him here. He gave us one helluva season and I'll never forget just how good that was.
  13. Could Flint say no to Bruce

    So, someone on here called 'longy ears' calls Flint a 'donkey'. Ooh, the irony..........
  14. Could Flint say no to Bruce

    I can only assume that most of the negative comments about Flint's ability or his speed or his age or his contribution this season (in which he's had to cover the inadequacies of just about every other defender - especially the full backs) were written to try to dissuade Villa, otherwise there are more people talking b.llocks on OTIB than normal just now.
  15. are people really boycotting because of LJ?!!

    Some interesting (and colourful) comments on this subject. In the case of my son and i, we outlaid a lot of money for our Season Cards in the Dolman, we then went on to spend a fair bit at each game on programmes, pies, beers etc and this was against a backdrop of having to make a 3 hours' round trip to watch The City. None of this is a problem when the football is of an even half decent standard but too many games this season have been really really poor and the Fulham game ultimately proved to be a bad experience too far for me and I've not been to Ashton Gate since. I didn't consciously decide to boycott anything or anyone but I just decided that, as someone defined by the club as a 'customer', the 'product' wasn't up to scratch right now so I'd take time out and do something else on a Saturday. I'm obviously not a 'die hard' fan but City have been my team for over 50 years, they'll always be the team whose results I look for first, I'll always watch only their games/highlights on TV and I'll undoubtedly return to Ashton Gate to catch a few key games next season (and POTD.) no matter who the Head Coach/Manager is. I guess, in summary (and possibly like a number of other people), I've just been so disappointed by how the management team at BCFC found the way to turn a silk purse in to a sow's ear that I needed a break from it all!!
