  1. Help for travelling away supporter

    Beer is very good at tobacco factory but pretty pricy. It has a good selection of local beer and a big outside area as indoors can get quite crammed. It's probably the only place around the ground that is away fan friendly. Can't comment on the cc as haven't drank there. An issue with tobacco factory is it has links with George Fergurson who has not been particularly helpful to city in the past and I know of several city fans who don't drink there out of principle now. However that was a while back and more city fans seem to be drinking in there pre match now.
  2. Up for work roll call

    Bed at 03:30, up at 06:00. Well worth it though!
  3. Bakinson

    Can't comment on any recent rumours but we bumped into him after the match against Palace. He was really polite and even more surprised we recognised him! He was incredibly complimentary about his time at city so far and of LJ in particular so it would be a shame if something has happened.
  4. Cardiff vs Preston

    Blatant cheating. As it didn't lead to anything I'm assuming that nothing can be done retrospectively?
  5. Selfish ***** on the pitch

    Personally, I'm going to enjoy the night celebrating the win and not worry about the fact the players didn't do a lap of honour for winning a quarter final.
  6. Sheffield United.

    Don't really dislike United but went to university in Sheffield and went to one of the steel City derby's which was an experience. Stood on the big stand behind the goal around a group of fans who were intent on singing Hillsborough songs.
  7. Luke Ayling

    Had a feeling someone would post about this. Personally thought he tried to dive, then realised it was a pathetic attempt and that's why he didn't appeal. Perhaps I'm too cynical and he did just lose his footing. The Sky commentator said that he didn't appeal so it wasn't a dive (or words to that extent). Do you need to appeal for it to still be a dive? I don't think you do.
  8. We had a great day. Found a good pub (New Barracks) and had a few beers. Got into the ground and they had Thornbridge on tap so we were very happy. About 10 minutes in (timings may be slightly blurred) some city fans started singing at our own fans about the fact they were sitting down. As someone who has spent a great few years standing up to watch City, in the Eastend and away, we were stood towards the back today but felt uncomfortable. In an ideal world we'd have said something but didn't feel confident enough given the numbers. It may have been "banter" but I don't understand what makes it funny and what the point is. It put a slightly sour note on what was otherwise a top day. This is not the first time it's happened either. A completely different feel to Sunderland, Reading, and Brentford today. Anyone else feel similar?
  9. So, rightly or wrongly, Bailey is out for one more match. After watching today, where does the phrase "deceiving the match official" begin and end? Is appealing for a goal kick when you know it's a corner in this category? If so, Mr. Peltier can expect a letter in the morning before the next Cardiff match. (admittedly no different to any other player but he stood out today) Or perhaps they could be looking at players holding their head and then miraculously deciding that lying on the floor isn't the best use of your time at two one down. (Omar Bogle minutes before his sending off). Is it only going to be enforced if clubs complain? Is every match going to be watched and then key incidents reviewed? How is this going to work?
  10. Red cards

    So.... The red card! First thought was that Taylor was headbutted and for some reason got sent off for it. After talking it over with others, we thought maybe it was because Taylor was the aggressor (although in itself I don't think that's a red card offence). Having watched the replay. (2m57), http://www.skysports.com/football/bristol-c-vs-leeds/374767, I can't see where Taylor's red has come from. Any thoughts? Any chance of it being rescinded? Yes, I know it wasn't a factor in our defeat.
  11. The comparison to last season

    Interesting. Hopefully will show whether or not we have improved relative to others as the season progresses.
  12. the elephant in the room.

    Mentioned it in the commentary last night. Apparently it amused LJ and the rest of the team!
  13. Lee Hendrie

    Thought he looked unnervingly like an elf. Thought he was okay about us overall.
  14. Steve Bruce

    Anyone know what happened with him and the city fans? Commentators seemed to think there was some conversations going on? He looked pretty angry at the full time whistle too and seemed to moan incessantly in both his pre and post match interview. Not a happy man at the moment it would seem.
  15. Relative Importance Values 2016/17

    Interesting to see Lee Tomlin coming in at around 1. If I'm understanding this correctly then that means it is of no benefit or detriment whether or not we play him?
