    I still like using cash as much as possible, I find it easier to manage budget/ finances. Its so easy to hand over plastic and not see it as "real money" these days. In answer to your question, no, it doesn't suit me but that's just me, im sure others will disagree.

    I believe that the Mem has been virtually cashless for some time

    I'm intrigued why you start the same thread for every local away game. I'm very aware of where people meet up before a game, perhaps you don't understand yet how this actually works against us when we go to away games? Those that need to know will know where people are drinking

    I think the complete opposite, we’d really flourish without them w anchors, there an embarrassment to the city , the sooner they go bust the better.

    Pissing about with the kit doesn't help. Neither does having the current badge. I'd stick to having a plain red shirt with collar and cuff, white shorts, Red sock with white trim. Stick to it...stop phaffing about with it. This season we are currently playing as 'Boro' if you asked any footy fan. Does my head in. Make Purple and Lime our alternate kit, and stick to it...don't change it. Make it ours...so that football fans relate those colours to us. Use the Robin badge...it stands out...the current badge could be any badge from a distance. And stick to it. Our current badge is so bland and just plain neutral...it doesn't pop. Seen so many people look at kit, then badge to see who fan supports when wearing shirt, especially at service stations. We could be anyone of so many teams. Even the blue few have a bigger Identity than us....easy to see with both kit design and badge.

    Agreed, we’ve gone to some places before, usually off the beaten track a little, that had previously welcomed away but weren’t doing so that day because of a thread like this & social media.

    Whoever sent the footage to that piece of scum paper is scum themselves, I'm sure the sun would have paid them a fee for that footage and that doesn't sit comfortably with me.

    If people need or want to consider the pilot a hero then that is what he was. Why not leave that debate to the experts and focus on what matters - a fellow football club coming to terms with a tragic incident. #justsaying

    Ok, its 2018 but for me cash is king anyway. The Banks want us to use no cash, here in Sweden the Banks dont have cash. If I go to Bristol I have to order pounds a week before i go. Its true, no cash in the Banks. Cards, cameras, phones gps, control. Orwell 1984, the book.

    Leicester fan in peace just signed up to say what a wonderful gesture that is from your club to light up your ground in blue with our crest. A few of your supporters have also been on our forum to say your condolences and it's very much appreciated. You lot are a class act and I wish you all the best for this season. Cheers

    Is it cheaper for the club to process cashless transactions? If so will the saving be passed onto the punter?

    City shop a joke? … well, it's a pretty bad one. Anything we can do - these can do better! (who remember the original 'Joke Shop' when it was located on Christmas Steps?) … the stuff we used to buy in there when we were school kids in the 60's/70's and each visit wouldn't be complete without a box of 'stink bombs'. (no doubt they are banned nowadays, like most good things thanks to the nanny state pc attitude of today... Boo!) OMG crushed under foot on packed buses, busy shops, The Arcade in Broadmead, these obnoxious things were going off everywhere ffs.. Well we thought it wad funny at the time, little things pleasing little minds eh? .. Bet a few found they're way onto the football terraces too!

    But whenever anyone is asked to do a farmer's accent, or is required to do one for a bit of acting and the like, it's far more often than not a (poorly constructed) WC one. Don't find many people trotting out a Shropshire one (plenty of farms there) or doing an impression of Barry from Ketts Hill in Norfolk (plenty of flat farms there). It's cider for me. Simple as. "We Drink Cider, You Drink (Insert Poor Substitute Drink)", "Cider, Cider, Cider...." (sung beautifully and slowly as a lament), "Drink Up/I Am", and other assorted brand-specific cider songs... the list goes on and on (although, regrettably, not too much longer). Who has this many songs about a discrete cultural characteristic? Plymouth and Yeovil share an association with cider but sing much less about it. No-one else in the country sings about their drink (in the Sports Direct Stadium, do they sing about that drink with the blue star on the bottle? Who cares. The point still stands). Robin is out the window for me - too many other clubs have this plus, much as I am a birder (plenty to see on these ere Quantocks), birds and football...(I invite your best gags here). Nah. Birds and football don't marry up well, in my eyes. Unless it's some kind of a falcon or raptor, but then you're edging into naff Gridiron territory. Canaries. Magpies. Swans. Bantams. Eagles. Seagulls. Beagles. Bugles. All rubbish. Robins are top, top quality birds - not much more I like than to listen to their tinkle of an evening, supping a little glass of lager cider - but they haven't even got redbreasts!! They're only called that because, prior to exotic oranges arriving upon these shores, we didn't have a word for the colour orange and used red instead!! How factually incorrect is that! Robins play in orange, we play in red. There's summat amiss there. I'm happy that the Robin became part of our look in the 40s, but prior to that it was a Bristol crest and the robin went back into his hedgerow till 76. Which is why many of us have an emotional attachment to our fine-feathered friend. (Getting all a bit Clement Freudian, this) 1976 and all that. The robin kept us company in our darkest hour, too, and beyond, into the Glory Days of 89/90 and the early 90s. Surely an identity - whether we are looking in the mirror or others cast a glance our way - is at its best if it is unique. The further up the idiosyncratic scale it is, the more other clubs drop away until you're left with, "That says Bristol City to me". That, personally, is cider. Signed, Martin Thatcher (Before anyone points out an eagle is a raptor, eagle is so non-specific. What kind of eagle, Holmesdale? Golden? Sea? Bald? Might as well call yerslves "Birds". At least then when you play B&HA we can tell who's singing what).

    I'm the opposite. I'm more likely to grab an afternoon snack if I have any cash in my pocket because it's there. I much prefer to manage my finances by app, to see how much I have left and budget. When it's cash it's a lot harder, and just gets spent really.

    I'm all for customer service and choice... Think 90% non cash is a bit high myself.... Nice to have options in life, reckon an in stadium 60/40% Split between electronic payments only and card & cash accepted outlets would be optimum... preserving choices for all. I see businesses preference for not having to deal with cash handling makes sense for them (sane with public transport) but not to the detriment of customer convenience, and individual preference of choice... I prefer a personal interaction shopping experience, in the sane way as I hate the 'so called convenience' of self serve supermarket checkouts - it's cold, impersonal, there's no 'service with a smile' and real people with real jobs are slowly being phased out with all this 'progress' and speeded up 'efficiency' ... we're sleep walking into an ever more 'automaton' lifestyle where machines rule and we comply We need to make a stand and demand a preservation of choice, because although these small changes seem harmless, beneficial even, with fewer choices in life come ever more dehumanisation.... Embrace convenience and improvement but always preserve choices, without choice we are nothing... Change isn't bad but remember the 'change' in our pockets aint so bad either... (as we'll discover when inevitably 'computer say's no' events occur and we're frantically running around waving temporarily useless pieces of plastic in our hands.) Buyer and seller beware!

    I like both. Take Saturday, if you were a cashless customer and you were looking forward to a burger from the van next to the stage in the fans village, you'd have been out of luck, they were unable to take cards that day. Cash generally doesn't break.

    One of the joys of the working man is to have a few quid in his pocket to spend at football.Just something else to add too the sterile atmosphere

    By "affected us" if he means we all went up the Miners to drink and split our sides as they got relegated to non-league then yes, I was very, very affected.

    This has managed to make my blood run cold because it clearly suggests there are people behind the scenes contemplating a re-brand along the lines of the desecration they've already heaped upon the rugby club.

    I think that’s utter bollocks. What aspect of our identity did we have before Bristol Sport that we don’t have now? I mean something that a supporter of another club would think of when they think of us, that they no longer would? I can’t think of a single thing.

    There are loads of clubs that aren’t particularly memorable, although I can’t think of any right now.
