According to PlayMakerStats (on twitter), we have scored the joint 5th most goals since Jan 1st 2017 so far, with 51, joint with Preston. The stats are as follows: 1. With 66 goals - Brentford 2. With 64 - Fulham 3. With 61 - Norwich 4. With 52 - Leeds, Cardiff 5. With 51 - City, Preston Think that’s a great statistic and shows we’ve come far since that dreadful run. CTID.
Going back to when we played them those weeks ago, it ended up being a draw and I remember feeling very frustrated and like we should have taken the 3 points. It’s interesting, however, to see that the exact same thing seemed to happen to Cardiff yesterday.. Potentially Millwall is playing better than most expected them to in this division, and it seems they have figured out an effective way to keep stronger teams from scoring against them when they are away from home. Potentially something to look at for LJ?
I can assure anyone on here that there will always be at least a few gay people at a match for any team, whenever or wherever the match is. I know someone who is very well known supporter for his team, very well known on twitter etc, who is gay. However only close friends know this, due to the fact of how terrified he is of the abuse he could get if he ever came out. Bear in mind that this guy is also married to a woman, and has kids, but he has never been able to feel comfortable in who he is due to the world of homophobia in football, which is a main part of his life. It makes me think of how tough it is to be gay in such a situation Some of the saddest bits are that he tells me that he knows of other gay people that go to matches that almost feel scared just in case they might on the off-chance get attacked for who they are, and he tells me how he fears that they may follow the same path as he did and never accept/come to terms that he was gay until recently, when it's too late to be happy and true to oneself. I think it's just worth thinking about I suppose, that there are tens of thousands of lives in Ashton Gate, any single one of them could be fearing over their safety in a place we all know and love. To me, that's just dreadful..
