  1. A very random post perhaps , but felt worthy to share. I went out on my bike with some friends this morning around Sandhurst in Berkshire and as is normal - we stopped for a coffee at the end of our ride in a nearby place called Crowthorne. We got talking with a man outside who was vagueably familiar and football came up in discussion - and my love of all things Bristol City. At this point the man we were talking to started to smile and the penny dropped - and lo and behold it was John Gorman. He now lives this way and is an artist doing commissions for many pros and cricketers

  12. It’ll be good for ‘Bristol football’ if City get promoted to the Premiership but there won’t be any Gasheads rooting for that. Personally I don’t care about Bristol football, I only care about Bristol City who IMO are the only club in this City who have ever shown any real ambition anyway. As we’ve seen this season we are perfectly capable of providing a good impression of football in this area on our own. The longer they stay in our shadows the better. Having them in the Championship is like putting Holloway on TV....does very little to improve the tinpot, bumpkin image many o

  13. What is Naz on about. Groves was class, an absolute masterclass of boxing skills. Eubank clearly not a middleweight, but no excuses with that performance. Amazing heart, amazing chin, and clearly got speed. But throwing huge shots from the outside without setting them up is unbelievably bad. Groves just moved out the way almost every time. And when Eubank landed a left hook, he would just stand there and not follow it up. I'm not surprised by Eubank starting slow, and not surprised by his wild punches missing by a mile. He's done all this before when stepping up in class against Billy Joe. But

In the light of the earthquake today combined the the heartbreaking scenes of Bristol Rovers fans trapped in a tiny confined space with only a single 48" TV screen to keep them in touch with reality, Oxfam has announced it will deploy its resources to the Memorial Ground to fck some sense into them.

  24. Okay. Well personally I like that there is a link to Willem but don't claim to support them and my following of them is restricted to posts on OTIB which flag up any major achievements by them. But as I said it's not compulsory and certainly it doesn't mean that if you're a Bristol City fan then you should take an interest in Willem; though I like that some do and they have been over to watch them.

  25. So, Skinhead: to start with, something fairly positive/enjoyable/legal/harmless, broadly speaking; before being hijacked/ infiltrated by angry white males who think it's all about them thus spoiling it for the majority and then driving it underground where a nasty subculture for "like-minded" sorts festers. And then later still, enjoying something of a renaissance of sorts, where middle-aged white males reminisce about the good old "glory days." Sound familiar?

Some City chaps there laughing their behinds off who are describing it as “ha ha, it’s Rovers onto Rovers. And they’re arguing about City”. Oh my days.

  28. Hi Newbie. We haven’t had a year where we have spent most of the season mid table League 1 for ages. In 2013/14 we’d been relegated back to League 1 after one of the most depressing seasons in my memory. We sold approx 8.5k STs that year iirc (unlike the Gas who only managed to shift 5k after promotion). We spent the first 6 months of that season in the bottom 4, even finding ourselves bottom at Christmas and we averaged 12k. Yes, we had a reduced capacity that season of around 12.5k/13k including whatever allocation away fans were given. Basically the home sections of AG we

  29. So you are comparing a season where we only had approximately half the capacity available due to a rebuild? A season where we had to give a big section of the ground over to the away support, whether they had any chance of filling it or not, due to segregation? With logic like that I am sure you might actually survive the Gaschat censorship, if you decided to post over there.

  37. They have had him in Boxing News this week too, did the Mail lift it from there I wonder? I thought this was the most interesting quote from Booth: “In terms of difficulty, Eubank is tougher than anyone Groves has boxed. If he can’t keep Eubank on the end of that long jab, the fight is incredibly hard for Groves and Eubank will be the hardest opponent he has fought. “A lot depends on whether Groves can control the distance and whether he’s emotionally and technically competent enough when he can’t control the distance. But they are both wrong for each other. Eubank is potentiall

  38. Spot on mate....as you said, the 70s and early 80s were raw, yet real and beautifully stark....I regularly got into awkward situations well away from football just because I proudly sported a fishtail parka with ‘All Mod Cons’ painted on the back...I also have a little cringe at some of the photos of me and my mates back then, stripey boating blazers, John Lennon-esque round sunglasses, two-tone tonic trousers, white socks and bowling shoes! But we didn’t care back then...we loved the music, it was sooooo much better than today’s utter tripe...bands back then got record deals after practi

  41. To be fair Britain was pretty dire from 73 to the mid 80’s. Lots of Brown to compliment the grey backdrop. However, the Falklands conflict did not have a huge impact upon us, Northern Ireland was far more representative of what was going on, just a bit more fear in a state of fear! let’s not forget the Cold War, bomb sites still to be rebuilt since 1945 in some areas, teachers that hit pupils with a range of objects close to hand, American AOR( toto et al), 3 TV channels, Roger Malone, Twin Tub washing machines, no central heating, the school bully, christening your DM’s, patch pockets that me

  42. As has been said before, growing up in the 70's and 80's was a completely different kettle of fish than it is nowadays. Glue-sniffing by the punks, casual violence by the skins and racism by the hatfull. Now you get taken to school in a 4x4 and you count your number of mates on Facebook. I know which one I prefer. A lot rougher life back then for most but what a musical soundtrack we had to live by.

  44. One of the problems with forums like this is you get posters who were’nt even about in the 70s and 80s, let alone going to football matches. Ashton Gate like many grounds was a truly dangerous place at home games. Bristol City had a fearsome reputation for away fans after riots (Swindon and Reading) and large scale trouble with others such as Millwall. Yes, I was involved at certain games as others I know on here were. But unless you lived it, you will not understand the culture that existed. Unemployment was sky high, the country was going through a massive depression (Thatcher era), we

  45. As I remember it, he was invited to show proof of this disabled red, supposedly attacked by our supporters in the stadium, and didn't, it was denied by both the football club AND Avon and Somerset police, wasn't seen by anyone in the 20,000+ crowd and was proven to be bullshit! IIRC, wasn't there talk of a libel suit against Henbury numbnuts for blatant lies? If that's 'proving us wrong', I would love to know what the weather is like on his / her / it's planet? What a bell end!

  47. I think one of the issues now is, young lads dont have anything to attach themselves too. There arnt any youth groups, no boys clubs, for a lot of young lads being part of something at football is the only part of the week they can feel they are part of something. Even going through the eras there has always been something, mods rockers, skinheads etc. What do young lads have now days?
