  1. I believe at that time City's pitch was pretty much the biggest in the league. I have a feeling Arsenal may have had the smallest.
  2. Still outside the City and County of Bristol
  3. Remember that vividly, as I was walking past the Rising Sun a City fan pushed by me and hit the gashead as hard as I'd ever seen anyone hit. His Rovers shirt was covered up by then, but this City fan must have recognised him. He was sparked out on the ground. I went from pure hatred when I saw them celebrating in the away end to actually feeling a bit sorry for him sparked out on the concrete. His mate was sh*tting himself and kept saying 'we've got the message' repeatedly. Nobody put the boot in thankfully and his mate helped him up and they sheepishly walked off, but it was brutal.
  4. Half of Kingswood is, where there club shop was is right on the border, can't be sure if it is Bristol or South Glos.
  5. surely that was a money laundering operation. They never had a customer in 40 years
  6. Can we rename it 'it all kicked off in Hanham '
  7. Hanham has never been part of Bristol. It has been part of Gloucestershire, Avon and now South Gloucestershire. Of course I say I'm from Bristol as most people outside of our area wouldn't have heard of Hanham, but strictly speaking I'm not.
  8. There was an episode years ago when the two teams in the fictional city played each other. Reds v Blues and it resulted in lots of violence and admissions to casualty. don't think there was any shots of the ground though.
  9. I see him in the Dolman from time to time.
  10. Do you mean Martyn Lewis. His old man ran the newsagents opposite The Blue Bowl. He was a big old unit with a hell of a kick on him. I knew he was with City for a while. I remember him scoring for Hanham High from the half way line
  11. Very generous of you to say 50-50. I would still say Rovers areas but definitely changing towards City.
  12. He was much younger, probably ten years younger. Spenny Thomas was a good player. At Forest before Gas I believe.
  13. Charges were brought with regard the assault. He had underlying health problems so didn't die as a direct result of the attack but it didn't help of course. Some of the group were also involved in fighting with Phil Kite, Rovers keeper (Andy ?) And some other Gas players in town around the same time. Evening Post ran a story that the innocent Gas players had been attacked by a City firm. The truth was the Gas players were giving it the big one especially Andy ? and came unstuck. It was not a City firm, just some Hanham lads who 2 or 3 happened to be City fans, others were definitely not.
  14. Matt Bryant's brother, Simon, also went to Hanham High and skippered the Rovers.
