  1. On the YouTube channel now.
  2. The reviews are fake - especially if the projector is of chinese origin.
  3. Yes - if you ever want to City in the Premier League No - if you just want to see City bounce around between L1 and the Championship
  4. Korey easily. The only other time was Mcindoe's free kick against Palace in the play offs at AG, that even come close.
  5. Quite right. However, the club do also give them a substantial 'appearance' fee as well. Something the ex players are happy to accept but feel a little 'embarrassed' to receive for having to turn up and simply watch a free game of football. The point being, had the club treated them a bit better in the past (eg. Inviting them to a match then billing them for their ticket) the club wouldn't have to pay them a substantial fee to come back. It's good the club is being more proactive towards its ex players but it has raised a few eyebrows among certain players who get treated like royalty at their other clubs. Also, like it or not, a lot of these players feel little affiliation to the BCFC and in fact follow other clubs - in some cases, clubs they previously played for. Just saying what I have been told that's all. The club are trying to build bridges it has previously burnt in the past.
  6. At least one has a very, very good and important job in football.
  7. Agreed. A fantastic achievement and one not matched for over 30 odd years. However, some of the players were 'good' players and not these 'god like' figures they are sometimes made out to be. Knowing some of these former players personally, they have told me how bad they used to be treated by the football club in comparison to the other clubs they played for. So much so that they had a lot of bad feeling towards the club. The club are now making a much more conserted effort towards their former players. The words of one of the former players was that he appreciates what the club are doing but feels a bit embarrassed being built up as a legend and icon when all they were doing was getting paid to play football at the time. He also stated that the club now give them a sizeable fee for turning up to these functions and one that they can't turn down for being paid to watch a football match. Just passing on what I've been told. Not saying anymore.
  8. Sometimes get the feeling ex players get built up to be more than they actually are/were. Good players in their day, but their legend status seems to snowball over the years. Nice little pay day for them as well - one I expect they are a little embarrassed about.
  9. Don't think this will happen; but fingers crossed it does. Would be the best thing all round for the football club.
  10. I will have to check when I get home. I think I have another infants Bristol City kit and infants England kit.
