    That’s the point! People hate the competition and are letting people know it. They should be applauded for that (not the result, that was hilarious) but can’t people get it into their heads that the low crowds are intentional? It really isn’t difficult to understand. Apologies if I’m coming across as a Gas sympathiser but if we take the piss out of the 1% where they don’t deserve it then it undervalues the 99% when they do.

    Personally, I'll be paying my £33 to watch Bristol City in a League Cup quarter final, and would do so whether we were playing Arsenal, Manchester City or Morecambe. But, each to their own.

    I am up in a hotel in Sheffield tonight and my room service was delievered by a young French lad. As I was signing for the food, he looked at the badge on my CIty sweatshirt and said. "Ah Bristol City, you are having a very good season, no?" I thanked him and said I was impressed by his knowledge and he said he had been following our fortunes since we signed JK and then Famara, which just goes to show one way to extend a fanbase.

    First of all fair play to the club for IMO getting the ticket arrangements spot on for this game. Coming from someone who is firmly in the priority 3 category What I wanted to talk about though is that I really hope we don't go down the cringey route of giving out clappers (see Huddersfield) selling half and half scarves and such like. At the most make it a red and white night. Just don't want to come across as a little bit 'tinpot' on television. Just want the club to be portrayed as though we belong and deserve to be there against that calibre of opposition (which we all know we do). What's others opinions on this?

    Me too.... I spent much of the interview wondering if we were going to be told if Pisano was out or out out!! Very interesting interview though and shows just how unlucky we have been and underlines just how well we've done in the circumstances.

    Little scrotes getting a pasting when the piss off the wrong person. I've see 2 flattened already for intimidating an old lady. ******* scrotes got what the deserved. No telling off. A broken nose at the very least from what I witnessed 14 or 15 year old I think probably grew up very quickly after that. Little scumbag

    Correct but it was long ago when the world was meaner, and here's the point. Britain lost millions in wars against the Germans but we get along fine now and dont feel the need to demonstrate our hatred towards them apart from a few hundred pissed up shirters at football tournaments going on about bombers. Green brigade on the other hand..

    I have just been reliably informed that when the horse punchers were in the conference their away support was bigger than ours, as ours that year was terrible, someone give me a doctors number I think I need someone to be sectioned

    This is the height of selfishness. What about the dog walkers in Cardiff, London and Birmingham? They have to come to Bristol now to walk their dogs. Only the other day I came across a chap from Brum cussing blime he was coz he had to come to Bristol to walk his dog because dog walking areas had been swallowed up by arenas, stadia, shopping malls, entertainment parks and industrial units. Shocking!

    Just had a quick browse of their forum. They are getting the wind up on all fronts. The comments from Hamer in the supposed email reply seem quite damming of employees and departed staff. It's getting uncomfortably hot at the Minimal. Shall we have a whip round?

    Hopefully half and half scarves will be banned, and the only time we’ll see them is a few days after the event, on Jonny Boy’s Twitter feed

    That belter BradfordMyerBriggs is up to it again : Doesn't seem to realise we don't have to be embarrassed about who we support - we're in a good league and don't have a tent city for a ground... And I'd imagine they do pretend to be lovely and accommodating to Gasheads, while quietly motioning to the rest of the staff to bolt everything to the floor...

    I didn't word that particularly well, I meant from within what we've currently got. Every other player there's someone else within the squad that could slot into their position without really affecting the way we play, with the possible exception of Bryan although I haven't actually seen Kelly play yet. With Bobby that's not the case. Imagine Taylor would come in but whilst he's done well I don't think he quite offers us what Bobby does. Our recruitment in the striker department has been exceptional over the last 5 years or so so I don't doubt we could replace him in time, but you'd rather not have to, and we couldn't rely on doing so in January. I think as far as losing him this season would scupper any promotion ambitions we have. But I don't expect anyone to be leaving in January, even if offered ridiculous money. The worrying thing about this is it appears his agent is putting some feelers out, but I suppose that's to be expected.

    I'm sure you're right about the ease of filling the ground, but I'd imagine that the overwhelming majority of City fans at the match will be either ST holders or members...and of course, like me, they'll make more of an effort to get a ticket to watch one of the more illustrious sides in the world who've won practically everything since we last played them. I wouldn't want casual viewers of this forum to think that a sell-out against Man Utd equates to a ground full of part-time supporters there to watch the opposition. I don't believe that will be the case at all. I'll be there to watch us beat them.

    Well done Adam and the whole team looking at this. It is easy for this forum to turn negative and you have helped ensure all the answers are as easy to understand as reasonably possible. Talk of Semis and next season should drive up ST sales this month and next. Those negative people earlier this year who didn't like the management, owner etc are not missed!!

    People will always buy from touts due to the demand. If they wanted to seriously outlaw it... why don't the police arrest them every time at sporting events?

    "The away end is covered, but by a plastic tent thing which seemed quite temporary"....wrong Mr Port Vale fan, it's permanent. In fact, I'm sure they were playing Port Vale when a wayward shot nearly knocked the whole thing down. Why isn't that Sag journalist trying to find out what's going on at the club instead of trawling the Internet for the handful of comments out there about the Mem that are'nt taking the piss? No mention of the comparison to Chernobyl Millwall fans loved the place...

    Firstly, I haven't read through every post but Mark Ashton's spin with the announcement of these prices is, in my opinion, symptomatic of the malignant nature of modern football as a 'product', rather than the pastime of predominantly working class men and women. All the clichés about taking your custom elsewhere do not apply when it comes to watching your football team. I took 3 seasons away and watched Non League football when I became disillusioned with things at AG, but the 'feeling' was never there despite it being a great experience on many levels. Charging £30+ the week before Xmas in a month that already boasts 4 home league games is IN MY OPINION, a bit extortionate. I'll be there as a season ticket holder because I'll never know if I'll get to see City play Manchester United at AG in a competitive game again, in my lifetime. Given that the club is guaranteed a sell out and TV revenue plus huge receipts from the shop/bar/food outlets etc, I think somewhere around £25 would have been more reasonable. But hell that's just my take on it all.

    Stuart Pearce as assistant?... Hmmm... That does place a somewhat different angle on things i must confess.

    It sounds like you are still kidding yourself, somewhat. You have arguably THE worst, if not then certainly one of the worst grounds in the football league. Understandable, seeing as you were non league only 2 years ago..! Money hasn’t been “reigned in” it’s been non existent since their take over. Finiancial climates in the Middle East have nothing to do with their lack of input and everything to do with being lumbered with a club that has no longer has any prospect of a new stadium, very little by way of facility or infrastructure, a low level support base (historically & currently) a squad with very little value or player asset and, overall, a club that is losing money hand over fist on a monthly basis, with absolutely no strategy of rectifying the situation, let alone progressing. Would you be ploughing money into a failing business, with no business plan, no assets and very little stock..? Not to mention the local competition, which is thriving and able to attract the vast majority of local support and financial backing. It would be like taking over the delapidated local corner shop, after Waitrose have just opened a new mega store next door..!

    I suspect that the 5 all made the decision in haste due to needing to be at an FA boozing event shortly after. Either that or the boozing event was before.
