  1. I've always preferred the yellow and green combination for an away kit, possibly because we wore that at the 1st away game i went to? wouldn't mind having it back. But that kit at Wembley V Stoke is a shocker, although i believe i still have it in my attic.

    Police.

    Over the years I've had coppers assault me, verbally abuse me, try and antagonize me looking for a physical reaction, threatened with arrest for genuinely walking in the wrong direction at a stadium and been arrested for witnessing a crime and daring to stick around to give a statement. The crime i witnessed was an assault, and by arresting me and other witnesses our statements has less weight in court as they were no longer deemed neutral. As the assault was by someone on a football fan, guess what? the only people arrested was the football fan who got assaulted and the witnesses. The only person not arrested and ending up in court was the person who committed the crime. I mean this from with all my heart, the police in this country can get f'ed! You think that a copper coming on here acting all friendly wont hang you out to dry given half the chance? I remember the old City copper Tommy pretending to be mates with everyone, he always seemed overly happy to start throwing his baton into City fans given half the chance.
  3. Got the 3 group games at CAT 3 prices and the semi & final at fans first prices. €660 for me and my boy for 10 tickets in total. not too shabby that. Decided against 2nd round and quarters as planning trips to Rome/Dublin/Copenhagen/St Petersburg at a couple days notice would probably be costly. so doing the friendly in Vienna at the beginning of June instead.
  4. I'd definitely welcome him back. Completely agree the football was outstanding with him up top, not properly replacing him has held us back massively.
  5. I have been asked this on a number of occasions, and it gets right on my tits. I have met a lot of people following City over the years and can honestly say not a single one supports another team in England as well as City. However, having a conversation in work about the potential Liverpool cup tie, turns out a number of people 'support' City and Liverpool. A few others piped up saying they 'support' City and Man United etc. It baffled me that you can support 2 teams, I really done get it? I have not known of these people going to football on a regular basis, so it might just be an armchair thing. I know of a few fans who follow teams abroad as well as City, and i get that. A chance to go to another country and watch some footy with zero chance that the 2 teams will meet. But I'm just curious if anyone is an active fan of another team in England i.e attend games for both City and a Premier League (or any other side for that matter?).
  6. The problem is for me city scoring a goal is better than sex, better than the feeling when you leave work at 5pm on a Friday and better than the feeling when you have a 6am pint at the airport on the way to Spain for a holiday. Nothing compares to the instant feeling of the ball hitting the back of the net, you take that feeling away, then you take everything away. I was in the England end when we thought we put that winner away in the nations league against Holland, there was limbs everywhere, it was chaos, only for it to be ruled out. for me, that was the end of following England at games that has VAR. I went to the next game V Switzerland, but i left after just 20 minutes when I realised if England scored I couldn't celebrate the goal until some bloke in a dark room a few hundred miles away gave the all clear.
  7. VAR is the death of football. If you can no longer celebrate a goal then the game is dead. The feeling of scoring a last minute winner is enough to keep me buzzing all week until the next game. Imagine waiting 2 minutes to know if its a goal or not? When we scored the winner V Man United, how amazing did it feel? How would it feel if the ball hit the back of the net and we had to wait 2 minutes for the review before being awarded the goal? People been saying for a while that TV is ruining the game, you could see it coming years ago with Andy Gray scrutinizing every tiny mistake, pausing the play and drawing lines across the page. Suddenly the tiniest errors were being highlighted to the nation, other broadcasters soon followed and done the same at international tournaments to the extent that FIFA had to get involved.
  8. Fair play to them. Had a good time down there pre-season, I said I'd go back for a game but unfortunately got plans today. with 20,000 regular football fans at a loose end on a Saturday I'm surprised more clubs don't do similar offers.
  9. I'd disagree with that, if you are a fan who likes attending away games and were going to go to Charlton then i doubt the option of the red button would stop you.
  10. For me its the introduction of the singing section and the strict policy of allocated seating (which is required with larger crowds now). Years ago when we use to get 12k in a 21k Ashton Gate you could turn up and sit anywhere in the stand you had a ticket for. blocks A & B of the Dolman use to be loud as f at times. Everyone in there wanted to create an atmosphere and it happened naturally rather than being told to sit up there by the club. I have been in the so called singing section on a number of occasions in recent years and its a different mentality of people in there than what use to be in blocks A & B years ago. People want to be seen to be in section 82 rather than get involved. Its all about the instagram or twitter pic of look at me. too many people filming the atmosphere to show people on facebook how 'wild' their weekend is as its a bit rowdy than getting involved. I for one use to get involved in the atmosphere, but i cannot think of anything worse than trying to get the atmosphere going only to be filmed and end up on social media for thousands to see as I'm singing. BCFC turn the lights off in the stands (as mentioned previously), people put your phones away, if you dont want to create an atmosphere then get out section 82.
  11. depends what you call modern but I'd say the playoffs. keeps the season alive for a lot of teams and there has been some amazing games
  12. Application done, over £1k for 3 group games, semi and final at Wembley for me and my son. That's the cheapest categories, but said I'd accept higher category if cheapest unavailable. Could be closer to £2k if i get bumped up a category.
  13. wouldn't mind a ground I've not been to without traveling too far. So West Ham, Spurs or Oxford for me.
