  1. Lansdown backs new radio station .....

    Would have made more sense IMHO to have put money into Made in Bristol TV and made that credible rather than the shambles it continues to be. Could have had naming rights across all content: Made in Bristol sponsored by Bristol Sport
  2. https://radiotoday.co.uk/2017/12/kelvin-back-in-radio-with-cititalk-and-citisport/ Our owner spreads his tentacles into yet another sphere of activity.
  3. Ploughing through my programme collection the other day and had to do a double take when I saw the attached image from January 1999. The skyline profile of the new West Stand bears a remarkable resemblance to the mock up photos of what was planned 19 years ago. Hope SL didn't pay twice for the design drawings!!!
  4. with successfully deceiving a match official in Saturday's game against Palace. Everton were awarded a spot kick from which Baines scored to level the scores. Let's see how the FA deal with the first Premier League player to face the same charge as Bailey Wright. From the FA's website these pearls of wisdom appear: He has until 6pm on 21 November 2017 to respond. Incidents which suggest a match official has been deceived by an act of simulation are referred to a panel consisting of one ex-match official, one ex-manager and one ex-player. Each panel member will be asked to review all available video footage independently of one another to determine whether they consider it was an offence of ‘Successful Deception of a Match Official’. Only in circumstances where the panel are unanimous would The FA issue a charge. I'm confused though having read this just now from the Telegraph: The Football Association confirmed an expert panel had unanimously deemed Niasse to have committed a ‘successful deception of a match official’ to win a fifth-minute penalty in his club’s 2-2 draw at Crystal Palace on Saturday. The 27-year-old was given until 6pm to respond to the charge, with an admission or guilty verdict set to rule him out of Everton’s trip to Southampton on Sunday and the home game against West Ham three days later. Is he getting a ban or not? Surely he must as the panel have found him guilty or is it a case of by 6.00 PM if he says OK, I did con the ref will the ban be halved or suspended
  5. I've got 15 boxes containing most of the home [and quite a few away too] programmes from this period. I am having a clear out as part of a decluttering exercise and am picking out half a dozen to keep from each season. The remainder will be going in the bin. If anyone wants a specific programme to complete a collection then direct message me. Alternatively if anyone wants a random sample of 20 programmes from this period to give as a Christmas present, again DM me but in exchange I would like £10 which would all go to Prostate Cancer UK.

    It was actually 1967 a few days after a rare MOTD appearance when they'd lost 4-2 at home to Blackpool. That game is available on You Tube I think. City were losing 2-1 with 4 mins to go. I left before the end!!! Still haven't learned my lesson!
  7. Shutt or Milne??

    Just looking on the official site preview and their report of the 4-1 win over Palace in 88 has a picture labelling Carl Shutt as the goalscorer - looks more like Ralph Milne to me! Anyone think the same?
  8. Cauley Woodrow - what did we see in him?

    Waste of a wage. Not worthy of a place in the 18 when Đurić is fit. McCoulsky or Garita would be no less effective
  9. Why I don't like Stoke

    Oh Louis, really caught napping for their winner:
  10. Areas of the squad

    Woefully short of quality and quantity in centre midfield. How many assists and goals could the current pairing of Smith and Pack be expected to provide
  11. Big Match Re-Visited - Arse V City 1976

    I'm sure it was Big Match not MOTD and Brian Moore was the commentator. He was a Gills fan IIRC and I think their fanzine was called Brian Moore's head looks like the London Planetarium!!
  12. Midfield

    Midfield - we didn't have one. I was there last night it was embarrassing the way we were outclassed in that department. Brownhill and Patterson were passengers out wide and Smith & Pack are too similar IMHO. We have 4 left backs [Bryan, Golborne, Magnússon & Kelly] but no such cover in midfield where, for me, O'Neill is just stealing a wage at the tailend of his career
  13. If Bryan were to go......

    I'll confess to not being his greatest fan - bags of ability but not consistent enough and coasts it far too much when compared to the commitment of, say, Wright & Flint. If he does go would it really be such a great loss? We ARE covered at Left Back by Icelandic International Magnússon and then there is the very average but not total carp Golbourne and I must say youngster Lloyd Kelly didn't look out of place on Friday. Bryan is in a comfort zone, a bit like Skuse was - a move would do him good.
  14. In fact he's still here and listed on the website so why no word this season? Age 22 he should be knocking on the door or the "£50k punt by Cotterill" as described on the website should be shipped out. Good experience with Argyle last season.
