    I just would like for us to at least get to the Prem to get the monkey off our backs. After I will be much more relaxed about it . It's the fact that clubs like Wigan ( ffs Prem + FA cup ) , Bournemouth Swindon ... have done it , yet for us it seems like the impossible dream .

    Interesting piece on BBC Sport about Aston Villa on reduced costs but main interest is the reference to Nathan Baker to BCFC for £3.9m. Don't know if that's true and not small change but most definitely worth it IMO. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/43088167 Here's the snippet: "Most of Steve Bruce's transfer business was done in the January 2017 window, when he bought Brentford striker Scott Hogan (£9m, rising to £12m), Henri Lansbury (£2.75m,) Birkir Bjarnason (undisclosed) and Barnsley pair Conor Hourihane and James Bree (joint undisclosed fee). But these were offset by the sales of Rudy Gestede (Middlesbrough, £6m) Jordan Veretout (Fiorentina, £6.3m), Ashley Westwood (Burnley, £5m), Nathan Baker (Bristol City, £3.9m), Carlos Sanchez, Fiorentina, £2.7m), Jordan Amavi (Marseille, £1.8m loan fee), Leandro Bacuna (Reading, £1.35m)."

    I don't know, I think it does/will detract from the actual matchday experience if you're sat about waiting for officials to make a decision. The appeal of football is the ecstasy of celebration, and I'm very wary of VAR in that respect. The actual result isn't all that matters, anyway. I want to enjoy the experience of watching football as well. It's introduction is about stirring up conversation for pundits, so Sky can strap more people to the giant flaming TV bubble zeppelin.

    Without him, two totally out of form teams helped themselves to three goals against us (Leeds and Sunderland) Along with Pack, he is one of our unsung heroes and vital to the team. Flint doesn't look half the player without Baker beside him.

    I support Willem. You said name a single player, Fran Sol, recently recovered from testicular cancer. How would I know that if I don’t support them? You really are an idiot at times.

    That's the thing, as I've said before. If we got to the same place/points in a sort of WLDWLDWLD way, instead of WWWDLLDDL there would be less knee jerk reaction and many more people would be happy. We just seem to have the capability of bad spells that are hard to shake . This years is easier to explain or understand, but no easier to shake off. With Leeds,Fulham and Cardiff to come , we might not be through it just yet. It's also down to hope and expectation. We were so good early on that, that becomes the expected, and when you drop below THAT level you are underachieving rather than going back to a more sensible/normal level. We can still hit some form and make the playoffs, I'm looking 5/6th , but with teams really hitting form around us it will be very difficult.

    Wtf not...bloody brilliant idea. We, as British citizens have been short changed in this country for far too long. Go to Europe...you walk in a bar, and you sit down and they come to you...table service...and you are treated like a human being. Here...you roll up...wait for ages at a bar, try to get noticed, put your elbow in spilt beer, and get served by some spotty teenager who doesn't give a shit, and treats you like he's doing you a favour....screw that. Why not enjoy some cheese and wine before or after a game? It's not posh...it's peasant food, eaten and drunk by peasants and the poor throughout the world. It's only us uneducated Brits that think it's 'posh'. It's the European 'Ploughman's lunch'. However...paying 19G plus 30G up front for a couple of seats and restaurant access, with window on to the players tunnel is hilarious. Talk about watching the animals at the zoo...wtf! It's funny how we put footballers/sportsman and pop stars on a pedestal these days. Back in the day, they'd be nothing more than slave Gladiators and Court Jesters...nothing more, nothing less...the 'lowest of the low'. There to 'Entertain us'. Now they are idolised... and peasant food like cheese and wine and oysters are seen as posh food. You couldn't make it up....

    Good pro beats what turned out to be a rudderless hype job, happy days! Jnr could be naturally good, but he needs to get rid of his old man and get in some honest pros around him rather than yes men. Hope Groves' injury doesn't ruin the tournament.

    VAR is in its infancy but like all new technologies will improve with use. Cricket and rugby had similar teething problems. My personal view is that VAR is a result of so many wrong decisions effecting results that has led to increasing amounts of critical comments from pundits and of course managers who end up getting fined. Last season City received 7 letters of apology from the Referee Association after their referees had made the wrong decision against City. VAR will hopefully reduced the number of wrong decisions but currently is a work in progress.

    I'm sure when finished it'll be a stadium to be proud of - I quite like the design and that big home end. I just wish SL had gone for it to redevelop the whole of Ashton Gate to 35k as he said he'd considered doing but decided against. The Atyeo lets AG down a bit now and looks unfinished. Understand the economics but the stadium could've been even better. Mind you, easy when it's not my money.

    Yeah sorry I meant to quote you, not quite sure what happened there... Live TV died around about the same time as "A lot of people had chipped boxes". Maybe this helped to kill the channel off, as people decided they could get more for their *ahem* viewing pleasure elsewhere....

    Agree...And if that was offset by £Xm of future clauses of the Kodjia deal (as per speculation) that might never have been achieved, then the actual money spent will be significantly less. I’ve heard that Baker cost anything from £400k to £3.5m....and now £3.9m. I wonder whether it was in fact - gross £3.9m, minus Kodjia future fees of £3.5m cancelled and therefore £400k net. Very good player, and shows we upgraded the squad in the summer.

    Always liked the Undertones - what a band they were live! Paul Weller was good also! We were so lucky to have lived through and enjoyed all the great music at the time. Still sounds good today. Saw The Selector at the Colston Hall 2 years ago and they are still really good live! Great music.

    An interesting post. My first point is that of selective filming of atmospheres. What I can say is that Turkish fans are mental. It is louder at the Turk Telecom Arena when they are 2-0 down to a small team than I've ever heard AG bar just a handful of occasions. They just don't stop either, it is amazing. Your second point about interaction for me begs the question why? If you think about famous home ends throughout the world, the most passionate home supporters tend to be about as far away from the away fans as possible. Dortmund, Munich, both Milan clubs, Roma, Juve, Lazio, Fenerbahce, Galatasary etc. This list goes on. Since I have been to City, the EE has always been shared with away fans, but I'm told when it was our 'home end', with the away fans in the open end, it was great. If anything, I think the proximity to away fans has been detrimental to our atmospheres. Many of the guys in S82 are there to abuse people and not to sing in support. The loudest chants (bar post goal) are often shouting 'winker' at the corner taker instead of actually supporting the team. I'd like to see the Atyeo shared again, but invite those fans who want to call the away fans 'cants' or just hurl abuse in that section, whilst fans who want to sing about City stay in the corner of the SS. They of course can and will sing together, but I feel many fans in S82 don't join in and dilute the experience for everyone else.

    Fair play mate. Despite the knobend he latterly morphed into, I still love Froch and his belligerence as a fighter. His bouts against Taylor, Bute, both Kessler fights and the first Groves one were absolutely mint. No shame in being outsmarted by Ward either. Granite chinned bastard haha. Edit, never get tired of the end of the Taylor fight To quote Rob McCracken 'he's ******* hard, Froch'

    Agree. In some respects SL (and MA) could’ve sold Flint for £6m, but they’ve backed our promotion ‘chance’ by setting valuations to ward off bids / enquiries. It’s not always about bringing players in.

    Interesting take as ever PF. My gripe is how quickly it’s gone down hill with the sudden resurgence in our fans seeing us as dare I say it a big club. 07/08 was absolutely electric. Now we are doing as well and it’s like a morgue when we’re 3-0 up against what was a Premier League side last season. That change in such little time is a sad sign of the times IMO.

    Okay so In the season 2014/15 season we were champions of league 1 and averaged 12k, that’s not that much more than they are averaging to be fair, and if you take into account the awful facilities available to sag fans, where as we have always had a pretty decent stadium. Let’s not sugar coat things to much, they like us do have a big fan base.
