  1. Spot the spelling mistake

    I personally, was joking - a larger programme would require deeper pockets for storage The United one was very good to be fair to the club, well worth £4 and you would pay that for a magazine (which would not be memorabilia from a high point of recent years)
  2. Spot the spelling mistake

    So it’s not facetious to suggest you need deep pockets for this one too...
  3. Name game

    Aden Flint - North Wales...
  4. Mapping our fan base

    Longbridge, Birmingham formerly Solihull, where, in our little corner of Shirley, there was a contingent of around 7/8 of us a few years back I’m still amazed to see the amount of reds within 15/20 miles, considering we’re up to 100 miles away
  5. Worst single moment watching City

    That JPT game was my personal low point. I was lucky to get a ticket, the sheer embarrassment of losing that game was the worst thing to take. I seem to remember they were due to play Stockport the weekend before, who were on a run of 7 or 8 wins on the bounce. watered the pitch on an evening the rest of the country were covering their pitch to protect against frost. Not only did they slog out that horrible result against us, they won their re-arranged game and went up on a run that took them into the play-offs and cost Stockport promotion. Had a weird soft spot for them ever since! I have never really cared about the paint trophy, not in a distainful way I have always just taken it or left it. Just, that game
  6. One of the biggest results in our history?

    I highly doubt Manchester United will come with a full strength first team. And even if they did, as they played on Sunday, anything other than a loss for city would be decryed because ‘the players were tired’ Great opportunity to put one of the biggest clubs in the world out of a knockout competition, and one of the greatest managers but I don’t think it comes close to securing top flight football for the first time post war - the Portsmouth game gets my vote
  7. After 22 games in 2007/08 season where were we?

    I appreciate we’re a month further into the season but Watford were 9 clear iirc up until a week before we played them on sky at the start of December. Every time there is a team everyone thinks is far and away the best in the division, they can get caught - if LJ can manage the rotation of the squad (& returns from injury) we have a very good chance of capitalising on any blips from the top 2 (or 6) Genuinely think winning the next two and not losing to Wolves and Villa would be a clear indication we are going up - I don’t think we’ll quite do it (8 points+ in the next 4 or promotion)
  8. Jim Brennan City and Forest former player location

    And if you’re the only left footer, you end up playing as a wing back.
  9. Jim Brennan City and Forest former player location

    He did an online Q&A last year that was shared on OTIB - has left quite a legacy in Canada by all accounts. While over in Marseille last year, a couple of mates and I had been to see Iceland v Hungary &, after a few sherberts, donning our recently acquired Iceland shirts we decided to pretend we were Icelandic. Armed with horrendous Scandinavian accents and a couple of quickly translated phrases; we convinced (amongst others), a group of Canadian lads, that we were in fact native Icelanders. I nearly lost myself and just blurred out “Jim Brennan” in the hope one of them had heard of him - only one of them had, but he described him as “like the god father of Canadian football” to his pals. These guys were over for the Euros and were definitely ‘soccer’ fans but safe to say, he’s left his mark on 33% of the Canadian football fans I’ve met.
  10. Pitch Invader after flints winner !!

    Somehow I disagree with 3 points of a 2 sided discussion ... finally feel at home on otib 1. Just don’t agree, the insult & all 2. I appreciate the football league trophy isn’t much of a badge of honour but it was a win at Wembley in the same year we won a division - that was pretty good, and recent 3. Someone’s got to say it - Just no, unfortunately, this is the post’s primary source of research, there are better ways to try and make people laugh at someone’s expense Similar to the flare debate, it’s not legal, no matter how harmless - It’s great to see the passion of the players, I’m sure having a couple of local lads and ex players around the club helps with the unity
  11. Champions league draw

    It would be a fantastic come back for English football, I can’t see it happening though and to think, we almost lost our 4th champions league place
  12. Third Voice

    I thought last week’s guest was fantastic, never mind on the podcast again I’d have wanted that positivity in the dressing room! OSIB is going from strength to strength & while I don’t have experience in the area, it’s great to hear how they’re taking feedback on from the forum and improving all the time I have also heard a few of the post game shows over the last couple of years on RB. It strikes me that there’s less about City when we’re away than the other lot when they’re away - NTTDS’ call after Hull was a particular highlight though! A good time to big up how good iPlayer radio is - saves trawling the local airwaves and you get LJs interview coming out of away games. It’s well worth trying out
  13. Does anything separate Bristol City from other football clubs?

    I think it’s safe to assume he’s Dr Bryan... For me our uniqueness(?) is everything about our identity, from the City’s rich (& in parts patchy) history to the Ashton Gate 8 with red shirts, robins and being one of the top dogs in the south west - even in the rough times. We’ll share bits of it with other clubs but not all of it - and yes, the club’s failures are part of that too, play-off dispair across my lifetime being the standout!
  14. Bolton at home , Friday 23rd October 1998 video

    Wow - how far offside is that first one?! The standard of most things have increased ten fold in the last 19 years - reffereeing, general play, City, Ashton Gate, the Coverage, commentary and punditry
