    There is a prominent part of the ground, visible to most including tv cameras that is crying out for a strapline/branding/identifier/statement etc...... .

    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.

    Jesus Christ the lad/lass just wants a beer and to watch the early kick off with a few city fans leave off. Maybe they’re on their own?

    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.

    I needed a good laugh tonight and you provided it with this link...cheers! My word, it’s so hilarious that they think the ‘only inaccuracy’ in that article is that da gas have been a club that yo-yos between div 3 and div 4 - yet they overlook the utter bullshite all over that article about attendances....bigging up and exaggerating theirs and underestimating ours...priceless - but only to be expected from the little, scruffy, ‘pathological liars’ up the road...

    Could you imagine a modern day manager buying the pre match and post match meals for the team,selling tickets clearing snow in the car parks and walking round the pitch with collecting tins for the team.why there is not a statue of the guy is beond me.

    We should make a lot more of the bridge, the SS Great Britain and all things Brunel IMO. Whenever you see documentaries on the great man Bristol is always front and centre and I think people associate the city with the man so why not capitalise on the connection?

    OK Robbo; easily explained, we're all City fans, but some take a passing interest in other local non league teams.

    I may be the only person here to think this, but all this hate for Holloway is so childish. Maybe it comes with age and maturity, but I never get hating someone because they've played for a rival football team. I mean, really? Ian Holloway, as a person is a pretty decent bloke by all accounts. A loving father to his disabled children and a fellow Bristolian. Apart from playing for the Gas and once calling us Poo-Poo heads, can anyone else explain the hatred/dislike? Am I missing something? I find it somewhat weird and childish. Just my opinion.

    Clearly a disturbed Gas writer. As Rinkadink mentions, absolutely nothing about the disgusting way that the Dunfords acquired the Memorial Ground from Bristol RFC. And no mention of the way the tenant Rugby club were treated in later years with removal of memorabilia from bars. Rovers sold their ground in the 1930's and apart from the 1950's have been Bristol's minor league club. Perhaps Mr Clarke can do the right thing and take them down to the basement this year.

    I don't think we "need" each other in the way Hollowhead suggests. The rivalry used to be fun in the days when they were actually our rivals, but it’s been 18 years now since they have been any sort of threat to us. I love Bristol and part of me thinks it would be great to be a city with two Premier League clubs. Liverpool and Manchester not only have top class football but actual local rivals as well. But I also hate the 15ers with a passion and so could never bring myself to wish for them to have any success. I’d be happy with them going out of business (they find 1982 hilarious so **** ‘em) and Bristol Manor Farm or Mangotsfield taking their place as our local rivals.

    I don't think any of that goes away with a stubborn refusal to use your contactless debit card as opposed to taking a tenner out of the same bank account at a cashpoint

    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.

    I think it's great that there is footage, but it should have only been shared with the investigation team. This is what I am comfortable with, the sun paying money for the rights and someone profiting out of this horrible tragedy.

    A relative had a car sticker, the vinyl sort you could easily remove, with the City badge and Pride of the West written on it. Back in the day when he could only afford old bangers and changed his car often the sticker got moved from car to car until it fell apart, lasted for years though. Pride of the West always makes me think of this treasured sticker. Funny thing memories. I’d love to see Pride of The West written up there, and the old Robin and the bridge badge.

    To an extent I think he is right. No one on this forum could say hand on heart that they do not miss the buzz of derby day. The late 80’s and early 90’s were my first years of being gripped by football and city and the rivalry with rovers was probably at its closest back then. it did seem at the time that both clubs were pushing each other on and ultimately both spent a couple of seasons in the second tier together. back then I could name every single rovers player right now I honestly could only name a few. while it is good fun to watch them currently I would love the feeling of attending a meaningful Bristol derby again, sadly I don’t think this will happen for a very long time.

    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 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.

    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.
