    Spotted this on YouTube. References to Bristol City and images of Ashton Gate Stadium and the 3 Lions pub too.

    This is hilarious, 2 words I would never use to describe Leeds. An official statement from Leeds United on Saturday read: "Following comments made by Marcelo Bielsa yesterday (Friday) the club will look to work with our head coach and his staff to remind them of the integrity and honesty which are the foundations that Leeds United is built on.

    Who's our spy then? Everyone saying it goes on everywhere and at every club. I reckon ours is this dodgy fella. No idea who he is...

    Rap? Not my bag. However, it doesn't mean it's rubbish. This video was superbly shot and well produced, at a guess, on a budget of just a few Thatcher's. I, too, liked the line about coming back to Brizz at the end. The lyrics (or whatever they call them in the massiv') were more than audible and kept to the rhythm. They got me to realise I miss Bristol. The last verse, together with the video snippet of Ashton Gate could easily be played as the team walk out onto the pitch. Why? Because it invokes pride in Bristol City. It also makes a change from hearing that pounding stadium rock tune by that Japanese guitarist (forgotten his name) that is used at so many grounds these days. What originality it would be. Hearing part of this track just before the start of the game and The Wurzels at the end. Would I go and see the duo in concert? No. Would I buy them a Thatcher's or a decent real ale? Yes, because they deserve it for doing something they believe in. They put whatever finances they had plus time into this project and did it well. Respectfully.....or whatever the kids/bruvvers say these days on the streets!

    Minibus from Whitchurch - 12 cans of Stella on the way up....hordes of Bristolians....Mardon!!!!!.....my flag was visible on the telly....stuffed by a team of household names but we had to score their equaliser for them....absolute bedlam in the away end....and down the side in front of their stand....great, great memories....nights like that just keep me going...our chaps frustrate me like mad but every now and again we get a Coventry away, a Chester away, a gas away (1983), a Wembley day out or two with Terry Cooper, a Bradford away (1989), a Forest semi final, a Doncaster at home (Colin Gordon!), a Chelsea cup tie triumph at home, a Liverpool cup tie triumph away, a Cotts wonder season, a Man Utd cup tie triumph at home and the Man City semi final....etc, etc, etc, and it all ensures that as much as I’d sometimes like to, I just can’t walk away and turn my back....b@stards!

    The doctor ordered a red wine, the solicitor ordered a double whisky and the warehouseman ordered a pint of doom bar. The doctor explained that he ordered a red wine as, it was good for his health and the same colour as City's shirts, the team he supported. The solicitor explained that, the whisky was a spirit and strong, just like City, whom he supported. The warehouseman admitted that he was a gas head and, his drink was bitter like him and Doomed like his team.

    Of course it does, I am amazed that the police saw fit to even attend this as a call, considering you don't see a copper when your house gets broken into these days and that is a real crime. I really don't know what all the fuss is about, Lampard saying it never happened at Chelsea, this is a team who employed Mourinho twice as it's manager.

    I find myself totally ambivalent to this. There are many more important issues regarding the state of modern football to feel righteous indignation about than watching the odd training session of opponents.

    "walky-talky, pointing people out to police..." Anyway, don't be a prat. Quite clearly tongue in cheek and incredibly facetious. This is not one of your u-turns where you try and make something out as a joke after the event.

    Sad that Bielsa had to announce all of this just to get rid of all the media hype created by journalists who don’t understand football. Bielsa is a genius football manager. It’s been a joy to watch adults getting upset about it all.

    Yes, I do support the Vixens and have done so for many seasons. Having a Season Card at the Gate allows free entry into WSL matches, so it's little more than petrol money to spend. Granted the SGS is not the same as Ashton Gate, the crowds are smaller and the WSL does not have as many different teams, but the fact is that City Women are in the country's highest bracket - and long may they be so. I can understand how many here don't take any interest in women's football in general, if they start with the comparison between men and women. Taking the men's side as a reference then clearly there is a gap to others, but I also enjoy going to the occasional Western League game too - and no-one would say that standard of football is on a par with full professionals. I take pleasure in many levels of the Beautiful Game, not just the top ones. Women's football has been constricted for generations in the past and is making great strides to catch up. Yes, there is still a long way to go, but the efforts being made to create a world-class system are beginning to count now. Who knows how far the game will go in the future? I dare say they will never get to the same crowds, finances or media exposure as the men's but that is perhaps missing the point. Other sports have shown that there is a big appetite for females competing against females - and isn't the real interest in two teams that are well-matched?

    Would everyone feel the same if this Leeds employee was caught spying in the game leading up to our game v them? Highly doubtful. Yes clubs do allow people to watch PARTS of a training session, when doing tactical, set pieces, or when the starting 11 is clearly being shown, only club officials are allowed on site. So when this person did get caught it was a ‘closed’ training session, gaining an unfair advantage? Most certainly.

    If that's just from spying at training...imagine what info each club provides from Scouts watching games previously. I don't think we as fans realise how much info and technology is provided each game these days. A lot more than we would think. Hence why it's become a game of chess at a fast pace.

    If this was any other Championship club then they'd be looking at a hefty fine. As it's Leeds then Sky are already in negotiations to turn the story into a 6 part series.

    I don’t even see why it’s unethical, if I’m honest. They didn’t even trespass, and the training ground was visible from a public place, isn’t that right?

    Heroic stuff from Bielsa. Snowflakes getting upset I presume?

    They haven’t broken any rules. According to Danny Murphy this type of spying has been a part of the game for years. The real issue is that they got caught.

    Apparently he's spied on every single team he's played against this year That means us I've changed my mind now Dirty Leeds, dock them 100 points and relegated to Yorkshire Div 4

    Decent video and tune, obviously not multi-platinum rappers with polished flows, but can't be rude about creative people who put time and effort into representing Bristol. And I thought the white guy's accent was pretty authentic (and he was better lyrically than the other guy) - if you think his accent is false you'll find 95% of UK rap is worse. Rap videos showcasing Bristol isn't new, there were plenty over the last 10 years. I've got a track somewhere which must be an ex youth player as he mentions his City kit. I think filming outside AG is becoming a thing now though, as it's a bit of a landmark, I noticed a kid recorded a track outside AG last year - sadly wearing a Barcelona shirt. And if all else fails there was this gem (obviously tongue in cheek) created many years ago just before the gap.... no idea who it is and whether they frequent AG or OTIB..

    You think that TM doesn't get involved with City discussions? As I said, there are loads of us who don't want to debate on anything and everything. Just the bits that interest us or we have a particular view on. That's why I bother with OTIB

    As much as this pains me to stick up for the bloke, TM is at pretty much every game, home and away If I scroll through any pics of the crowd I can pretty much pick him out every time. Think he made an official club tweet / instagram post just the other week As for posting about players and performances, perhaps TM is happy with his own view and doesn't feel the need to post about it. Just a thought. It is sometimes a good thing to not post about anything and everything and comment on anything and everything

    Opinions are fine, but some of the vitriol that’s been posted is fairly disgusting. a simple “no I don’t follow” would be enough if you really need to comment - I think the OP was looking for something a little more constructive. The standard is not men’s premier league, why anyone is surprised enough by that to make such a comment is beyond me, lack of investment compared to the men’s game for half a century and more will do that. It’s only less popular and less developed because of the gender bias that has existed in society since time in memoriam. To win the lottery is to be born a man etc In a world where physical activity and exercise amongst young girls lags tragically behind young boys I hope to god if I have a daughter I can take her to see woman playing a thriving sport (as well as to the men’s) to show her she can do that too, that all her idols don’t have to be taking their clothes off on social media and not to be scoffed at and belittled by absolutle dinosaurs.

    Quite simply, the best game I have watched home or away. Football today is nothing like this era was - and never will be. You can stick your prawn sandwiches up your arse Bristol Sport. What a day out that was at Forest! Memories!

    I was chatting to a mate over the Christmas period about how good and original the 'Thacher's Gold' chant is, especially with the addition on 'Natch!' shouted mid-way through it. It's original and specific to us as well which makes it stand out. This got us thinking, why isn't there a song based around 'Thatcher's Haze', it seems just, if not more popular! So after a couple of (mulled) ciders we thought about: (tune of 'Happy Days') Sunday, Monday, Thatcher's Haze Tuesday, Wednesday, Thatcher's Haze Thursday, Friday, Thatcher's Haze The weekend comes, so we get drunk, waited all week for you!

    We’ve just reached the point where form started to dip last season. On Boxing Day 2017 (2017-18 season) we peaked at 2nd with 43 points from 22 games. On Boxing Day 2018 (2018-19 season) we were 12th with 32 points from 24 games. On 16 Jan 2018 we were 5th with 47 points from 27 games. On 16 Jan 2019 we are 7th with 41 points from 27 games. Lets hope the lines on that graph start to cross over in the next few weeks.

    Nope. I wish them all the best but it's just not for me. I dislike how it's been pushed upon us in recent years by the FA, by the media.
