  1. VAR a shambles -Shearer

    ........absolutely nothing!
  2. VAR - Ashton Gate 'Not Ready'

    Didn't AG have cameras in place for the VAR when Bristol were in the Rugby Premiership, last season, and probably be needed again next season? Or do you think that that system is not good enough for the football VAR?
  3. Liam Walsh - Now confirmed signed (merged)

    Or a hearing test for you! He didn't say we were a little club, nor that it was heart wrenching to leave Everton, just that it as the right time to leave. By calling us Bristol, he is aware that there really is only one team in Bristol.
  4. Trouble?

    As you have your picture under your OTIB name, you should be easy enough to identify, and I hope it's many years before you are allowed to set foot in Ashton Gate Stadium again, for invading the playing surface.
  5. Jim Brennan City and Forest former player location

    I disagree. As a youth, I was a skilful, naturally right footed, defender, that played at county and regional levels, at both right and left back. When I was regularly being selected as a left back, I taught myself to kick almost as well with my left foot as I did with my right.

    And don't forget Matty Hill. 5ft 7in in his socks, but could still out-jump most 6ft 6in attackers. I always thought he had springs in his boots. Last I heard, he was still playing, for Bradford Park Avenue.
  7. friday's ref not done us so far this season

    According to the Select Group 2 Referees List, David Coote hails from West Yorkshire. Bit too close to Sheffield to be totally unbiased IMO. Likewise, the ref for the PNE game came from Lancashire. Have to wonder if the EFL referees appointments people are working honestly at times.
  8. Rooney goal tonight

    Not so sure about that. Think his second goal of the three may beat it. Played the ball square to the right, from the edge of Everton's own penalty area, and two passes later he was on the edge of the opposition's six yard box to slot the ball in. Ran like a young un!
  9. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    According to my friend, whose son has joined the Academy this year as a pupil, before boys and girls are accepted into the Academy at 16, they have had to attain a certain academic level with their GCSE's results. For the next two years they spend most of their time in the classroom, where the uniform is a Bristol City tracksuit. There is more to the Academy than just being a good footballer. They are taught about all the aspects of being a footballer, including how to coach. This gives the kids a good grounding in case they don't make it as a professional, which, as we know, most won't. A lot of really good footballers don't make it as far as the Academy because they don't get good enough GCSE grades.
  10. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    You probably did. I believe the same applies to our Academy as well. A lad I know was accepted into BCFC Academy in September and his parents had to find about £200 for training kit, etc. It's the equivalent of buying a school uniform for the sixth form.

    But I thought Rovers played at Ewood Park every Home game?!!!
  12. How can they say they spend two years compiling fixture lists?

    Unfortunately, there could never be a fool-proof system, because of the different teams in each Div. each year. I have noticed, though, that if City have a midweek fixture, like next Tuesday's against PNE, where the opposition team/fans have a long journey, the reverse fixture is also invariably midweek.
  13. Think it might depend on which block you're trying to buy a Half Season Ticket for. Most, if not all, of the South stand seats are already held by ST holders. If the number of seats show in each block is in the hundreds, then that's the total number of seats in that block. You may have to click each block in turn, to see available seats. There are some seat available in the Dolman Wing blocks.
  14. No, but it is the number of people that have told me that their friend is getting them a ticket for the game, because the friend is a season ticket holder and can get up to 4 tickets.
  15. I notice that your telephone number starts 009
