  1. My brother Dave passed away this morning in a Poole nursing home after an 18 month battle with the big C. He was a Red home and away in the 60's and 70's 'till he moved to Christchurch (Dorset) he then took up with Bournemouth and Boscombe Athletic (so not a glory hunter), but still had City at heart. He will have a grandstand view of his two favorites now .

  2. Incredibly tedious to try point scoring immediately after such a good result so early in the season. Honestly, the best thing you could do is not start antagonistic threads like this and keep quiet. All the satisfaction would then be if we keep doing well and the appointment speaks for itself.

  3. Margaret Dodds died yesterday at the age of 103. She had supported City over many decades, and attended every match , in all weathers, until last year. She was a lovely lady , who greatly enjoyed her football, and will be greatly missed. She was amazingly fit for her age, until becoming unwell a couple of days ago. My most enduring memory of her was going to the pub after we defeated Manchester United. A great night !

  4. I turned it off at “I went on talksport, I said what I said and I believe we’ve got it.” I think we’re very lucky to have SL, but that’s utter horse shit. This is an extreme gamble and not at all what he described we were looking for. I need to hear no further. He’s defending the indefensible.

  5. Just read his interview from yesterday press conference in the Bristol Post and for a young lad who hasn’t exactly been given too much of a shot here, he seems to bloody love the club. Great to see. He’s been sent out on loan four times in four years, took a pay cut to show willing when signing a new contract, asked to be made captain for the cup game and now saying he sees his long term future here as a captain. I don’t remember him saying a bad word about us, even when LJ threw him under the bus a couple of times, then chose to send him out on loan and sign Benkovic/play Williams

  6. About freaking time we showed a bit of streetwise edge to our game . Hamer had to be taken off because he was on a second warning . Halle- freaking- lulleah !! We have been the naive ‘ sportsmen ‘ for too long . Cheating,no but winding up opponents I am very much OK with . That is part of any professional sport to get in the opponents head. Well done Rowe , who was namechecked , and the others . Chris Martin was up to his old tricks yesterday, frustrating when he’s on the opposition side but frankly great when it’s your team he’s getting the advantage for

  7. What is the point of him? Bar his first month he has been dreadful for us....not average but consistently poor. Behind William's, Walsh, Paterson, nagy, brunt and now bakinson in the pecking order surely. Eaten alive today, bakinson looks twice the player. Time to get rid sorry, we just can't afford to play and carry him.

  8. All he does is run about and point a lot. Did he learn his trade from Nicky Hunt? Get rid. No this is not from just one game. I have thought this for the last year or so. Woss reckon?

  10. Sheffield Wednesday: [Sunday 27th September – 13:00] – What can we expect? Wednesday travel to Ashton Gate on Sunday having made a decent start to the season with a win at Cardiff and a draw at home to Watford so far. It leaves them with four points, two clean sheets, but of course they still find themselves in 24th place due to a 12-point deduction for financial irregularities. For now, it does not appear to be a millstone around their neck. They progressed in the Carabao Cup with wins at Walsall on penalties and Rochdale but conceded their first goals of the season at Fulham on Wedne

  11. Losing Baker and especially Kalas for the first matches of the season was a massive worry and there were a lot of questions about Taylor and Zak, and whether they could prove they were Championship quality players. Two clean sheets in a row where, by and large, both Stoke and Wednesday have been restricted in the chances they've created should give them a great deal of confidence. I'm sure both will learn and improve as the season goes on but both are looking very much like they are at home at this level and can keep us solid until Kalas comes back. Fair play to the both of them.

  12. Absolutely superb performance. We know what he can do on the ball, which was as classy as ever. But his aggression, winning headers or giving them a good strong nudge. Really looked superb middle of the 3. We seemed to play quite high and we seem capable of it with that back 3. Didn't miss Kalas at all. That was a big test. Fletcher clearly a very good, physical striker with a good touch. We were comfortable. And Taylor was in that important central of the 3. And he didn't put a foot wrong. He should get better too. Still so young for a centre back.

  13. Delighted for him to make his debut today, I work with a close relative of his & before this chap even knew that I was a fan he told me James has always wanted to play for City since he was a little kid & really is a massive fan of the club. He told me that James had said to him once that he would rather not be a professional footballer if it meant playing for anyone else. Whatever happens now he can say he has played for his club, something thousands of us never get to do. Let’s hope today was his first of very many games for us.

  14. Just watched it and still none the wiser as to why Holden was the best candidate for the job. Same as usual it's just "trust us, we know what we're doing". Well unfortunately after 20 years of significant investment and imo significant underachievement based on that level of investment, I have little faith that the right appointment has been made, or that it was made for the right reasons. It's baffling that he continues to talk up the Academy as being a route to success when he won't invest in it to become Cat 1 and we have seen such little evidence of any Academy players (apart f

  15. Andreas Weinmann Arguably good enough to be starting in that XI Arguably not good enough to be starting in that XI But, I have never seen a Bristol City player work harder in a City shirt than Weinmann does. The attacking and recovery runs he makes for 90 mins is something else. I really do hope the respect he deserves is put on his name by everyone, and that it remains on his name even during difficult spells of results. What a player, proud to have him in our shirt!

  16. With all this talk of a second wave, I vote we end the season now. Let's use the points per game system same as last season..... Forest, Wycombe and Wednesday down Us and Reading in the automatic spots. Congrats to Reading. It's been a long hard season

  20. Similar to Four Candles What a joy to watch intelligent 'natural' movement and angles... Something we've been missing for ages, especially up front. Makes the game so much easier, and creates chances and opportunities...even at thrown ins we moved...I was gobsmacked. Even if we concede and lose a few...I'm sure our fan base will respond in a positive manner...as it's how football should be played and entertaining. Give it a go playing like that and I'm sure most will be happy. Was great to see last night.

  22. Not seen it mentioned anywhere else but saw a post of his on social media yesterday when he said he was now unemployed, so clearly we have released him. Bit sad that it ended like this, I do appreciate we kept him around the club to let him get fit again but think he certainly deserves some recognition for his time with us. For what it’s worth I reckon he will go down as one of the most underrated keepers to play for us, excellent at claiming crosses, great reflexes & good distributor of the ball. One injury too many possibly but he got us out of a right pickle 2 seasons ago

  28. I absolutely love Dean Holden. I was really upset by his appointment - underwhelmed, deflated, angry. But every time he speaks I admire him more and more. I have never wanted a City manager to succeed more, purely because he sounds like one of the most honest, down to earth, REAL blokes I've ever heard. I'm a soppy bastard at the best of times but the pride he had when speaking about his mum and dad made my jaw drop. What a wonderful representative we have for BCFC on our hands here. He cares. It feels like he cares. Good luck Deano, we're behind you.

  30. I’m not a critic of SL, although I don’t agree with everything he says or does. Some things I like, some I don’t. There is however a streak in him that says “I’ve put millions in, I’m beyond criticism” (paraphrased). There are multiple ways to skin a cat. It’s possible to have achieved promotion without needing his millions every year. A different strategy might’ve achieved it. The current one hasn’t achieved it either. His millions aren’t total charity either are they? He’s got a big asset for his money....and kudos. Some thrive on the power of kudos. I’m grateful fo

  31. All you negative types must be "supporting" a different Bristol City than the one that I have supported since the halcyon days before the Dolman Stand was built. I see a club with a newly refurbished stadium, that would be the pride of any club in our division. I see that we are getting a new training ground that will be up there with the very best around. I see a large number of academy products playing senior and league football on loan and a couple joining the first team this season as important players. I see a club that has bought some very good players and managed to make a good profit

  32. If I’d have known he was gonna play, I wouldn’t have shelled out a tenner. The worst midfielder I’ve seen in many a year at our place. Watching him run around after El Ghazi tonight was like a slapstick comedy. I half expected El Ghazi to custard pie him at any time. He’s like a 10 year old playing in a men’s game. Runs everywhere, but does nothing. Lesson learnt for me tonight - wait for the team sheet before buying the stream. Awful.

  39. You aren’t. Lee Johnson & Dean Holden did, too. They pick him pretty much every single game. Probably because he does things like score a hat trick away at Sheff U or provide 3 assists at Boro, or score a sublime goal at Derby, you know, that sort of stuff. Or maybe it is because he has a lot of top flight experience, superb fitness levels and a virtual 100% availability record & is a model professional. A real head scratcher why they rate him, eh?

  40. Haven’t seen it mentioned on here, but lots of pics doing the rounds of Dean Holden plus his brother and dad visiting the Three Lions Pub yesterday - as promised on the Sound of the City interview. Apparently he was there for several hours chatting to everyone and playing pool. A small thing but another gesture that’ll buy him lots of goodwill from City fans. Was anyone on here there?

  41. Hmm, I think the spelling error is deliberate. "Toghe" in Italian means "robes". Robes is how I would say "Rhodes" with a cold. Rhodes is famous for the bronze statue of the Colossus of Rhodes. Bronze is a formulation of yellow. Fenerbahce are nicknamed "the Yellow Canaries". Farewell Fam

  42. Imagine you'd be pleased about today. They never really got started and we deserved the win and place in the next round. Odd thing is they beat us here in the League last season and we were going to play them over there in the return fixture in March until all games were stopped with the pandemic thing. Thought we would lose today, we don't do well in cup games but Lambert surprised many by putting out a strong side and the players seemed determined and created a number of opportunities. The second round draw is believe a North / South divide so we'll play someone similar som

  43. If in 1982 someone said that we would have the ground, training facilities and infrastructure that we have now, I wouldn’t have believed them. Im one of many that paid hard earned cash to buy shares to keep the club alive. The fact that we’ve have now got a billionaire benefactor whose family are genuine supporters is something I would only have dreamed of. Yes, many of us are miffed at how the last few months have gone, but we are in a very good place regarding the future of our club.... and if you were a supporter of the blue few back in 1980 you would not have believed how the gap
