    It is very difficult for me to say on this fantastic forum about my Dad who love Bristol City very much and been supporting them since early 70s. Sadly, my Dad was passed away yesterday after he lost his battle with very rare cancer. He was 68 just two days before his 69th birthday. He was season ticket holder with me in Landsown Stand Lower A4 seat 25 in Disabled Bay. He sat with me (I am wheelchair user). He missed whole season this season cos he wasn't well enough to go to Ashton Gate to cheer his beloved team. He always get excited to go to the match with me and have a good old pint of ciders on pre-match. His favourite player was Chris Garland, Gerry Gow, Clive Whitehead and Joe Jordan. Now it is going to be hard for me when I go back to Ashton Gate without my Dad. Cos I have got no ones to come with me as regular. My Dad will be missed.

    I have already renewed the season tickets for next season and always support the club. My Dad wouldn’t let me to give up and want me to carry on to cheer the club forever, that what he want and I will do it for myself, Dad, the fans and this beautiful club that I love. Up the City!

    I'm a long standing Swindon fan and very sorry to hear that your dad has passed away. When everything settles down and we have some normality back in our lives try and continue supporting your team just like your dad would want you to and where you have so many good memories together

    ...and this is why, as I mentioned a couple of pages ago, I have little sympathy with their situation (not that I think that they’re that close to the edge). I appreciate that not EVERY Gashead wants us to go out of business and fold but it does seem that the majority would love nothing more than for City to disappear for good. So to every Gashead who has called us ‘82ers’, every Gashead who has bored other clubs fans about our financial troubles 40 years ago, every Gashead who has said how they can’t wait for SL to go and leave us in the shit..... **** YOU!

    Sorry for your loss, may he rest in peace x Never feel alone, this forum alone shows what a powerful family we all are. We'll make sure between us that you have company should you want to go to a game. If you are ever stuck message me on here I'll more than happily sit with you and am sure there are many others that would do the same. Now is about grieving for your sad loss in the future just remember we are all one big football family that go through the good and the bad times together

    I was shocked at this post (because it wasn't aimed at Henbury)!! The problem for you (not for any of us thankfully) is that you're so thick as pig sh** you can't lie in a straight line. Because you've got nothing going upstairs apart from your deluded Walter Mitty fantasies you can't remember the made up crap you've posted on here. Which really makes life simple for us because (again probably because you are cerebrally low functioning) you haven't realised that this is the internet and we can just look back at all the deluded bollocks you've written over the years which contradicts the other deluded bollocks you've written. How have you not figured out yet how you've destroyed your own credibility several times over? Oh yes ... because you have the cognitive capacity of a gastropod.

    Sorry to read this BCFC76. RIP fellow Red. I'm sure the supporters trust & club can sort something out so that you will be able to watch City. I'm certainly willing to ship in if needed. All the best Tommy

    My deepest condolences to you @BCFC76. You sound like you have made some wonderful memories which will stay with you forever. Having lost both parents myself, who were huge City fans too, be assured that they never really are far away. Especially when you are at places you used to go together like football. It’s been a few years since I lost my Dad,who just about the only thing I had in common was him was football, I used to phone him as soon as I got home from the match and tell him about it. I still miss doing that but have found other ways, if we score a great goal I look to the skies and silently say ‘ you would have enjoyed that one Dad’. You will find a way too. Take care, we are all thinking of you until the time we can go ‘home’ again. It’s going to be quite emotional for all sorts of reasons. M x

    Gotta take my hat off to you Tommy I'll be honest and say I find some of your posts tough to read sometimes, but nobody can knock your kindness to fellow posters. Good on you mate!

    Does that include clubs who are 1 point off the play offs..... You can't decide the fate of this season until you know when football is allowed to restart, if things take a turn for the worse we may not even see any football until the new year at which point there isn't really any point in starting a new season and you may as well make it a 19/20/21 season. Flip side if cases rapidly decreased in say 4 weeks or so for whatever miraculous reason then you'd have time to finish this season and adjust next season to perhaps just having no domestic cups which creates several more mid week slots. Most of society is waiting indefinitely for life to recommence so can football, no decisions need to be taken soon.

    On the 14th of December the 15ers beat Ipswich 2-1 at Portman Road to move 4th in League 1, two points from second with a game in hand. Since then: Their manager walked out on them for Mansfield in League 2 His replacement managed to win just 2 league games in the next 3 months seeing them fall down the table The club reveal a 24 million pound debt and a 3.4 million pound loss One director resigns and the chairman kicks another off the board leaving Wally to run the club like a dictatorship The supporters club and the supporters implode and start fighting each other accusing Wally of not being fit and proper to run the club and not issuing shares to the supporters club. All of this in the middle of a viral pandemic which may bring some football clubs to their financial knees. They truly are the gift that keeps on giving.

    Talking of odd things seen around football grounds, some oldies might remember when the touchline was ringed by bus drivers and conductors, from the ‘City specials’, sitting on what used to be called the ‘ringside seats’. I used to get the letter B bus from Brentry, via Shirehampton and the Portway...

    What annoys me is how everything is driven by money. Football isn’t important, it’s just a game, yet somehow we’ve let money and greed consume it. The truth is it really wouldn’t matter if we just stopped this season and started again in August/September. It really doesn’t matter. When you pose arguments for why we should finish it, the truth is they always boil down to money. Sad and depressing .

    Maybe next Thursday we should stand on our doorsteps and give a round of applause to the posters of gaschat. I mean to take the time when the world is in such a dark place and provide more than half of our fair city with such quality light hearted entertainment to lift the spirits deserves recognition I'd say!

    I think the government could be missing a trick here. They should be seeking advice from BRFC. They have been setting the standards for what we are all doing now, for a long, long while. Staying at home - Social distancing on the terraces - Panic bulk buying stock (which then goes out of date) - Putting complete faith in the words of their leader -

    Can you imagine the hilarity if the 15ers had a series like “Sunderland ‘till I Die”? Just imagine what goes on behind the scenes at that place.

    All this recent stuff actually makes for pretty sad reading - the roverzzzz seem to be teetering towards oblivion in the same way the most drunk girl on a hen night does in six inch heels ... and to think they have constantly taunted us about what would happen to us when Lansdown “gets bored and pulls his money out” - oh, well, they might just be realising that their doomsday scenario for us just ain’t gonna happen....but theirs? Well, that must seem just a little bit real right now - they thought they had a billionaire new owner = no, they thought they were the sixth richest club in England overnight = no, they were mouthing ‘unlucky da shit’ on social media platforms = no, they thought they were getting a new training ground = no, they told us they had outgrown the Mem and were getting a new stadium = no - so all their hopes have crashed on the rocks of dreams - and they are right back where they started, a tinpot little club that will never go anywhere in the world of football ... oh well, **** ‘em ....

    Hi Gerry, There is a very moving post from BCFC76 entitled Sad Day. Unfortunately as I now live in Northern Ireland, I am unable to offer any assistance (unless your budget extends to an Easyjet annual pass). However, there must be many City fans in BCFC76's position of suddenly feeling isolated and wanting to go again to the Gate but can't face going to a match. Knowing that they will be attending without their usual loved one with them would be to some a really difficult and emotional hurdle to overcome. I can appreciate that in this potter's case he has the additional concern of navigating a wheelchair on his own now. As a fulltime carer to my wife, i can appreciate that is yet another stress for BCFC76 to overcome. So....how about at the start of the season, as well as the first home game of the new year, there could be a room set aside in the ground whereby fans suffering bereavement could congregate before the match? I think it would be a lovely gesture by the club if at least coffee and tea plus biscuits were provided as well. So that it isn't abused by fans just turning up with a family entourage, it would have to be for that fan only (plus carer etc) but obviously that's your call. I hope the above makes sense. Many thanks. PS At the Stoke City New Year's Day game last season, I was really impressed when at half time, all the Stoke City fans who had passed away in the last 12 months were remembered by their loved ones. Photos had been sent in prior to the match, so it could be shown on the big screen. Maybe this could be done as well?

    On the same subject as the Pistols, if only because the story involves Malcom McLaren, Adam and the Ants are a classic example of a band who were struggling commercially and making average although sometimes interesting music (Dirk Wears White Sox anyone?), then suddenly took off. Adam asked MM to become their manager, which he agreed to do, then promptly sacked 3 of the band and pointed them in the direction of Annabella Lwin's Bow Wow Wow (who McLaren also happened to manage!). Adam and the Ants, with the use of Burundi drums, then created a distinctive and very popular sound, and basically stormed the charts in late 1980 through the whole of 1981, only losing momentum when Adam (Stuart Goddard) branched out on his own, although he was still successful for a year or 2 as a solo artist. I think people forget just how huge the whole Adam Ant/Antmusic phenomenon was at the time. I remember, when they were in their pomp, songs from their back catalogue like Young Parisians and Car Trouble hit the charts, something that happens to very few artists, David Bowie's Life on Mars being an example that comes to mind. I know he had some mental health issues a few years ago, but he was touring quite recently, I am sure he played the Colston Hall about 5 years ago. I also remember him doing a solo spot at Live Aid in 1985, and thinking after his lacklustre performance how quickly his stock had lowered in the space of 2 or 3 years. Good artist when he was on the top of his game though. And Bow Wow Wow were pretty good!

    Earlier on in the crisis they showed live Italian /French league games behind closed doors - like watching a better class of pub football without the passion. Fans are part of the game and playing behind closed doors should be opposed at every level, it is even handed out as a punishment. Imagine watching Liverpool celebrate winning the league at an empty Anfield . Football is all about fans and without them really what is the point.

    You couldn’t be more wrong. cancelling obviously guarantees staying up. However, we have a game in hand over all our rivals. Furthermore, we have 6 games out of the remaining 10 at home. Some of those rivals only have 4 home games left. Finally, our key midfielder will be fit enough to return from injury. Our slide started when he came out of the team. we have no chance of doing a Sunderland and if we go down, we’d have over £100m to spend on players without even touching the parachute money. you lot are miles off the likes of Fulham, forest and Brentford. You’ve no chance of promotion.

    The 'physio/trainer' running onto the pitch to help save a dying player and all he had was his magic sponge and a bucket of water. Funny how those magic sponges cured so many players yet they were never available at a chemist, not even on prescription.

    How absolutely right. I was taken at a tender age of 8 to stand on a wooden stool made by dad and placed in front of the Cowshed (Old Stand) Dad was the instigator, as his dad was with him, of my lifelong love affair with Bristol City FC. Take Heart @BCFC76 that your dad will be looking down with all our dads every matchday to follow our beloved team when this pandemic is over and he will be just one cheer from you as we enjoy our football at our beloved home.

    What can I say mate? That is awful news. Just try and stay strong and take care of yourself and I hope that he thought of thousands of fellow Reds thinking of you and your poor dad is some comfort.

    The fire icon, is truly apt. Though wasn’t aware of many of these going up in flames unlike their cousins, the Bond Bug, the melted remains of which were commonplace on the roads around Britain in the 70’s. Treasured memories of those parked up alongside the railing at the Open End. Can also remember with ten minutes to go the long line of bus drivers/conductors leaving the ground to man the football special buses. Also the men in ‘white coats’ with the half time lettered score boards, a cunning plan to make sure you bought a programme!

    I’m sure that occasionally people in these 3 wheel invalid cars were allowed to watch the match from near the touch line. Can anyone else remember this or am I imagining it?

    As a City fan growing up in Filton I remember going to the gas training ground at Hambrook to buy an away ticket when we played them at Eastville in the early’80s. I cycled down there after school and was amazed that Bobby Gould and someone at the back of the office we’re the only one’s there. That was my first introduction to the meaning of ‘tin pot’: The manager selling match day tickets out of one of those little cash boxes like they used to collect your dinner money at school. But to be honest, looking back at that time in the ‘80s everything was crap. But fair play to him as we exchanged a bit of banter, nice chap.

    A lady took her dog to the vets as it was deaf. The vet found the dogs ears were blocked with hair. The vet cleared the blockage and gave the lady some advice. 'To stop this happening again get some Vair hair remover. The lady heads to the store to buy some Vair and reaches the till. Cashier: If you're using this under your arms, don't use any deodorant for a few days. Lady: It's not for my arms. Cashier: If you're using it on your legs, don't wear anything right on your legs for a few days. Lady: It's not for my legs, it's for my schnauzer. Cashier: Don't ride a bike for a week.
