  1. Hi everyone. I'm a Hungarian fan (clearly obvious from my name I suppose ), thanks for letting me join the forum. I would like You to have a little insight on Ádám, not the usual stats, etc. I don't want to convince anyone if he's a good or bad football player, just give a little deeper insight on his characteristics, something You can't know about from articles and the usual introductions. Waited for the finalisation of the transfer with this just to be sure and it will be a long read. I'll start by being very honest: he's my absolute favourite player. And that's a very rare thi

  2. Pics of the card. Taken 4 days to put it all together. Hope I’ve done you all justice. Will get it over to Benik as soon as I can. Social media gets a lot of bad press, but it also does stuff like this, which some would do well to remember.

  3. Truly today must be our 'finest hour'. I learn today that Weimann should not be on the pitch and Fammy is actually the problem in our team. Meanwhile signing a truly mega exciting player age 18 with Champions League experience from a major European club is questioned as worryingly too much money and a big gamble- then largely glossed over on our forum because it's just not enough or the right position . Un-####in believable !! ( Welcome Han-Noah - I will cheer you at every touch) Signing a goal keeper with the pedigree of Dan Bentley, Making our Chelsea loans of Kallas,

  4. Haven’t seen this mentioned anywhere and thought it deserved a thread. A couple of days ago, a young Peterborough fan made a post on social media suggesting that he was imminently going to take his own life. Sam sent the guy his personal phone number via message and told him to call him whenever he needed to talk. And today he met up with the lad for a coffee and a chat. Class young man.

  5. Many apologies for posting something which is another (to add to all the others) negative perspective on my beloved BCFC. I have been supporting them now 62 years, so I do have a bit of a history, but I have rarely felt so low and disillusioned as at present. In recent times we have been so full of hope and promise - the wonderful title winning season, the new ground completed, new income streams, new strategy for youth development, beating all and sundry in the Premier and, yes, year on year progress in the Championship - until now I fear. I do hope I am wrong and my low state is just a

  7. Several months ago I reported on here about how the Frame Footballers of Bristol had had their funding stopped by the FA primarily because they weren't involved in competitions, particularly international competitions, from which the FA could derive kudos. The organiser, Nick Dewfall of 2nd Chance FC, stated that it was a triumph in itself to get these children with walking difficulties to turn up, let alone play in competitions. I am chuffed to inform you, that Bristol City have stepped in and have attended some of the sessions and provided kit etc. The media team from City will be at th

  8. Takes a lot to come back to your parent club that deemed you surplus to requirements 5 months ago and hit the ground running, inspiring us to victory in recent performances. Has been criticized on here, sometimes rightly, however think we should appreciate how professional the bloke has been. I for one would love to see him continue his form for the rest of the season and fire us to the play offs. Keep it up Pato!

  9. As most of you will know, I'm a fan of Lee Johnson, but, today I've got to say my confidence was a little bit rocked. Yes, I've got strong opinions, but I'm also not arrogant enough to have my opinion swayed, changed or debated. Lets take a step back for a second, which I know will be hard, especially if you have just witnessed that complete shower. Now, what Lee Johnson has done for this club over the years is far bigger than these last 6 games. It really is. He's turned this football club into a well run, respected and rated football club within English football (and outside).

  11. This guy works his bollocks off without any support or any player within twenty yards of him for over a year. Then we sign Afobe. And Johnson immediately plays a striker alongside him. I am sick and ****ing tired of the abuse he gets He has become my favourite player. Not because I can see what he brings to the table when other embarrassingly thick "supporters" can't. But because of the disgraceful, vitriolic and unjustified abuse he gets. And for what? Sacrificing his best game for the 'good' of a club under a manager's instructions. I hope he gets a shedload

  14. Two words I think this forum lacks sometimes. Its so sad reading grown men calling LJ a "clown" and phrases like "get out of my club". Can we as a fan base just not acknowledge that the current setup of LJ, MA and JL have progressed this club, and that the journey has simply run its course? Lets be thankful for the work that Lee has done in making us a stable, and lets not forget, RESPECTED, Championship club. Things that we haven't be able to say before LJ took the reins. Everyone has a level, and to be honest I think Lee at the moment has hit that ceiling, for whatever reason.

  15. Just looking again at last night’s match thread and the en-mass overreaction to the performance, “Johnson out” calls and generally ridiculous statements about how terrible we are and how we’ll never achieve anything. I’ll start by saying I agree about the performance. While I don’t believe we should assume to best anyone in this division - especially this division! - we should of course have seen the game out. We played poorly throughout and our game management was poor. But I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again - some people really need to find some perspective on where we are a

  16. I bumped into josh in Cabot circus the day after the Millwall game and we had a chat . Coincidentally my son was mascot the following game vs Blackburn - I explained to josh that he was very nervous and suffered with anxiety . Josh made a call there and then into the club - when we got to the ground the staff all knew about my son and said he would be walking out first with him . Something he was over the moon with . I could see on the big screens of Josh chatting with him - my son said he was really kind and talked to him about various things. I didn’t ask for any of that to happen - bu

  17. Not sure if it’s been mentioned elsewhere but feel the magnificent support today is worthy of mention. I took a non City fan and he was hugely impressed with how the fans supported the team and the atmosphere created. He asked at half time whether the fans would keep up the level of support if we went behind. Well he certainly got his answer. The fans stayed with the team right to the finish. What a moving moment with that young Blues mascot getting great applause and a big cheer from the City fans and giving a thumbs up. Not ashamed to say that brought a tear to my eye. Extra

  18. On the day that we gave a debut to an expensive new striker, City’s established frontman Famara Diedhiou, so often the source of dismissal and ridicule from fans who barely set foot anywhere but Ashton Gate, produced not only his best performance under Lee Johnson, but perhaps the most complete forward contribution City has seen for a generation. For 90 minutes the Senegalese would not be knocked off the ball, QPR could not get close to him, and as well as drifting off his markers to power a first half header past the hosts keeper, he also reproduced Nicky Maynard’s insane overhead kick f

  20. Would be a shame if he retires. I know there's this whole Pantomime villain dislike between him and Bristol City (which is a well rehearsed act to divert attention away from his players), but he's a real character and a good man too. His autobiography is a good read, he has a lot of respect for our club despite all the history.

  21. Those of us who want (or wanted) Johnson out had (have) genuine concerns about him. We won today and put a decent string of results together but still will still feel there are those grounds for concerns. Petulant & Childish threads like this do no good mate, grow up a little.

  23. 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 cid

  26. This has got to be a joke, surely. The context of the chant is that he’s so popular you’d allow him to ‘charm’ your dearly beloved and you wouldn’t hold it against him. What on earth does that have to do with the colour of his skin? It’s this sort of shit stirring that actually detracts from the fight against actual racism.

  27. 38 years ago today the Ashton Gate Eight saved our club. As we challenge once more for promotion to English football’s highest division I guess it’s appropriate to take a minute to be grateful we actually have a club to support. Whatever the rights and wrongs of what preceded the events that unfolded, these men should rightly forever remain in the consciousness of all City fans for what they did. Thankyou.

  31. An interesting story in the Post ( never thought I’d write this sentence) Palmer is unhappy with what’s happening at City and his relationship with LJ is at rock bottom. With several clubs interested he could be out the door this window. A big problem is that KP is friends with Nketiah who has asked him what life at City is like . The implication is that as LJ is cold shouldering KP the report will not be very positive. If we sell KP it will be ‘ LJ OUT ‘ for me . The whole KP scenario screams of mismanagement and he is not the only player who has suffe

  33. No it's not. The club have every right to control any messages the fans wish to put out. If a big chunk of the support base wants to go down that route than that's their prerogative and if enough agree, their message will get heard. But right now it's just plain stupid. I certainly don't agree with everything Johnson's doing at the moment but the calls for him to be sacked right now are crazy.

He talks us through growing up a mad City fan, working with Bobby Moore, Robot Wars and meeting Pelé. Loads of mentions for old city players and he has some great Bristol City stories I'm sure many on here will enjoy.

  36. If you are reading Jon and Steve Lansdown: Please realise if you give someone the model of selling their best players every season and expecting them to improve you have to expect the odd bump in the road. The task set before Lee is a very difficult one. Please keep the faith. He has credit in the bank for what he has achieved thus far. It is LJ that has raised fans expectations. Please don’t sack him for this blip.

  37. ....what a bloke he is. People talk about the Snowflake generation, but this lad has so much determination and balls. Always challenging himself and trying to improve. Both on and off the pitch. Never shirks, always takes constructive criticism and looks to improve himself. Top lad imo. From LJ today...quote.. He knocked on the door and asked ‘can I be captain’ because he wants to work on his leadership and sees himself as a long-term Bristol City captain so I love attitude like that.

Do the honest thing for the fans of Bristol City fc, get rid of this clown (LJ), he's taken us as for as he can, not experienced enough to get us to the top flight, he's got a plan A but no Plan B when losing at home, in the last 4seasons we've hovered around the playoff place's, when we've had the chance to go 3rd or 4th we've flopped, if you say you want top flight then LJ is not the man, we need a more experienced manager,

  40. Hi all, On football season eve, another Red has sadly passed away. Beezer (Martin Bees) was diagnosed with terminal cancer during the close season, and sadly passed away in St Peters Hospice yesterday evening. He was secretary of the SC&T and a very familiar face around the ground. I’m sure people will recognise him from the pictures below. From a personal perspective, he was my football dad, and in many ways had been more of a dad to me than my actual one, in recent years. Funeral details to be announced in due course.

To whom it may concern at the club, With the renewal letters for season tickets being sent out this past week, I wanted to make my feelings clear on why, with a heavy heart, I will not be renewing my season ticket this year for the first time since 2001. This is the first time ever that I’ve felt differently getting that renewal letter through the door. Every year up until now has been a no-brainer to renew, but Saturday’s home defeat to West Brom was the nail in the coffin for me and it's nothing to do with matters on the pitch. I’ve been in the “singing section” since they first to

  45. Will await the ‘red card killed us’ comment! Completely ignore the fact we were 1-0 down and looking a shambles and a mess prior to that moment. Ignoring the fact he left Smith at CB for so long after the sending off with Weimann in CM. Ignoring the fact he then takes off our most creative player once we go 2-0 down. Surely the time has now come for him and Lansdown to accept he has gone as far as he can with us and we need someone else to take us to the next level!

  46. To appease some people on here, all we need is someone who’s Dad was never involved with BCFC, but had an array of domestic titles. Someone who has never been sacked, rarely lost a game during their early years in management - but who won’t ever lose another one. Someone who will reveal the deepest club plans & secrets when asked at pre, or post, match interviews. They are probably best off being a minimum of 5ft 11” with a satisfactory BMI and preferably maintain a modern, yet unremarkable dress sense. They need to have no desire or ambition to manage any other club and

  47. Bristol City's winning streak at Fulham is already the thing of legends, and this time round Lee Johnson’s men set out to eclipse prior performances with a comprehensive takedown of one of the promotion favourites, battling for every loose ball, closing down every angle and delivering easily the hardest fought away win of the lot at Craven Cottage. It is little over a week since City were humiliated away at another ex Premiership team in West Brom, but this time City played their best side rather than their most defensive pack, a decision that would provide decisive as the visitors easily
