  1. Gerry Sharpe (1946-2019) – an appreciation We are sad to announce the passing of former player (1963-71) Gerry Sharpe on 17th December at the age of 73. He had been settled in the USA for over 30 years. Gerry was a very fast forward with an eye for goal. Under manager Fred Ford, he made his City debut aged 18 against Carlisle at Ashton Gate on 23 October 1964. In the next ten matches he scored six goals, playing up front alongside John Atyeo and Brian Clark. Later, under manager Alan Dicks, he played increasingly at number 11, on the wing to better make use of his pa

  2. My son is taking part in a social experiment. He has to wear a Bristol Rovers top for 2 weeks to see how people react. So far he has been spat at, punched and verbally abused. It will be interesting to see what happens when he leaves the house.

  3. I actually think this is one of the lowest ebbs in my lifetime as a Rovers fan. The fact that Mansfield, 18th in League Two have managed to poach a manager who has-within one calendar year and on a very limited budget- from relegation certs to 4th in the table (we could even go second today) should confirm to every Rovers fan that the current board have absolutely no interest other than their own financial one in the club. It should also be remembered that the manager was employed on the cheap, I didn't even realise he was at the club until his appointment! Against all the odds, Coughlan

  8. Those of you with long memories and empty lives may recall that my last 'meeting' with LJ occurred 5 hours prior to the Man Utd victory on 20 December 2017. A chance encounter in Cafe Nero, Clifton Village. Leap forward 2 years and Part Deux happened at the Passenger Shed, Temple Meads last night. My firm's Christmas party and in amongst the corporate revellers I spied familiar faces in fancy dress. Scott Murray resplendent in a pink dress and tutu, Jamie McAllister as the Beast, sans Beauty (probably washing her hair) and our gaffer in regency garb. I reminded Lee of our previous encount

  9. I was there today on duty. they were intending to throw them onto pitch but had a slight change of plan due to the weather and mud! instead they walked around with a large piece of tarpaulin that fans were encouraged to throw cuddly toys into, the reaction was amazing, hundreds of toys donated including a large sackful from us . an incredible response and a brilliant tribute to a very sweet little girl, very touching, Peterborough fans brought some as well , very pleasing duty today .

  11. The key difference is that City fans do that and your fans don't. This oddly is taken as a badge of pride by Rovers' fans who see themselves as super loyal compared to the fickle teds. Sometimes you need a change of ownership. I'm very happy with the City board but I don't see why the Rovers' fans are so passive when their board is running up debts of £3m a year against the ground. City is making much bigger losses (£25m operating losses, this year offset by £36m profits on player sales) but these are being regularly converted to equity (= written off when you already own 95% o

  13. His career was cruelly cut short by one of the most appalling fouls I've ever seen. And not even a caution (no yellow or red cards at that time). As a player, he was exquisite. Very good ball control, took goal scoring chances with aplomb and a turn of speed that left defenders wondering where he had gone. My thanks for his contribution to Bristol City and condolences to his family.

  16. Came off in the last game. Not 100% presumably. He's been consistently one of their best players (if not the best) which has been rewarded with international caps. Nothing to see here.

  21. RIP Gerry, an early City favourite of mine during my youth.. Was there in the enclosure on the fateful day vs Boro.. The sound of the crack still haunts me today when I remember it, was sickening then as it is in memory today... One of the saddest days watching City without a doubt... I'm saddened again today to hear of your passing at such a relatively young 73years of age.. Thoughts with your family and friends...

Kurt' 'It's Curr. Yes Lee, you'll remember the last time we met we beat Man. Utd only hours later! Us meeting again like this must be a lucky omen for another unlikely victory at Sheffield!! Where we may meet yet again, because I'm going!' 'Um....yes, that's great Curr, um....

  24. Some good news. . . . Hull City defender Angus MacDonald has been given the all-clear after being treated for the early stages of bowel cancer. The 27-year-old was diagnosed with the condition in August and has now completed successful treatment. "It's been a long couple of months but it's a great time for me now," MacDonald said. "There were some dark stages but my friends, family, partner and everyone at the club helped me through it." He added: "I'm going to enjoy Christmas and then hopefully get back to working with the physios in the New Year. "It'll be nice

  27. One of the standout players in the first team I watched. I also remember his long fight to play again, like Cheesley a little later, which was ultimately unsuccessful. Also his work with the youth team players who were soon thrown into the first team due to the events of 1982. Plus his short, but fairly successful stint as caretaker manager when Roy Hodgson got the boot. Very sad news RIP

  28. I agree mate...I really like the way Morell plays. I think its time he came back and became part of our midfield. He needs to get used to playing with the other players.

  31. Slightly off-topic, but I remember having Teletext on watching out for that result (was it a Thursday evening??) I’d minimised it while I watched TV so only the page number was showing. When the text colour changed, meaning something had happened, I thought it would be for full-time, but checked anyway. YES!!!

  36. Wouldn’t surprise me if it was or perhaps his agent. If you notice, always very disparaging about other players around CO’D’s age who are seen as a bit more exciting or interesting. Never criticises CO’D’s mate Brownhill either..

  39. So it's 1983, you go up to Cov to visit your mate at the poly and watch a UK Subs gig and get pissed. Then you notice Coventry have got West Brom at home and who is West Brom's star fullback? None other than your old hero Clive Whitehead! Some confusion ensued in the home end at Highfield Road that day about the young spikey haired drunk lad in an Echo and the Bunnymen coat, shouting "GO ON CLIVE, SKIN 'IM!" but not in a West Bromwich accent, and otherwise taking little interest in the game. I can now reveal that lad was me. Sorry about that.
