    Hopr to see you in the championship in a couple of seasons. Fingers crossed

    All six of them?? 

    Didn't they win 4-1? Had to look it up, always have to look it up when they win, only losses get reported on here, odd that. Still they are 6th now, and hanging in there, looks like the new money has made a huge difference already.

    You not bothered that they are not football people? Higgs was pretty clueless but no doubt he cared about the club.

    Shouldn't read too much into this take over, hasn't made the football headlines really, and don't forget Bankers are not renowned for throwing money around are they? Seems like it's more of a case of something to 'boast' about to his Dinner Guests, but then it all falls apart when he has to repeat Bristol Rovers, and explain they are not actually Premier League, or even Championship, or a league below that, but the next one down. :facepalm:

    Sorry... just trying to win some Kudos on here, fed up with sticking up for you lot, now you might actually become a club that is worthy of the Bristol tag, and possibly our sibling rivals, so no more Mr Nice Guy :thumbsup:

    What stigma?  Thats all on them.  I don't remember Bristol City FC being relegated to the Conference.

    Should we also feel stigma because they moved to Bath, or because they stole the rugby ground, or because they are selling a war memorial, or because they intend to leave Bristol again? 


    I considered it a stigma because, and I repeat, to have a non league shambles of a football club that bears the name of Bristol in its title does the fair City of Bristol no good whatsoever. I also said in as many words that some outside Bristol may not differentiate between the two clubs..as in 'Bristol' 

    Mind you that idiot Dad of the blogger does no one any favours, truly cringeworthy, I just hope we City fans remain a class above, this knuckle dragging name calling rivalry is embarrassing, is it any wonder how some view us as being thick?

    I don't know why people get so funny about this. Who cares what they do. Good on them - there is no loyalty in football these days from a player perspective so why should it be any different when it comes to who the owner is or how much money they're prepared to plow in to their club.  Years ago I'm sure many here would have accepted a similar situation at our club. Luckily we have SL.

    Well constructed reply, not. Sounds like you are in a bit of denial here. It must mean they will become a real adversary to us, something to look forward to, unless you actually enjoy having the stigma in Bristol of having a non league outfit that actually does Bristol City FC no favours at all, especially when we are lumped together with them by the less well informed.   As Sweden says this might encourage SL to kick on a bit more, especially with the Bristol Sport ethos, can't see he would want to be considered the poor man of Bristol Sport really.

    What do you say Monkeh? Think before you type mind, just for a change.

  8. Sorry lads and possibly ladies, this does taste of sour grapes, I have continually tried to warn you over too much gloating, and now this!!! But some on here are acting like petulant kids, look on the positive side, a stronger Rovers always seem to push us on, and really it does put Bristol on the map more, too long been a Footballing backwater.

    Peter, let me put this one to bed once and for all by categorically denying that I am not a member of the consortium.

    I do however admit to having a Dyson Cinetic Big Ball. 



    Commiserations, my local recycling centre has a bin dedicated to Dyson cleaners,

    Probably not, I'm sure TMOR will be along shortly...

    Can't stand them myself, but what will be will be (I know a song about that!)

    They'll get their ground, no doubt in my mind, can't see al bundy would have got involved if that was in doubt. But we'll have been in our fully refurbished ground for a couple of years or more by then, and expect  us to have pulled away a bit further if anything.

    Just seen this and scanned quickly through this news...Blimey what a to-do, and yes I am flabbergasted and slightly jealous if it's true, as I suspect if (if) we were being honest we all are envious With a huge war chest Rovers will be a force to reckon with, all the way to knocking on the door to the Prem. Perhaps that what we need a kick up the backside, after all we have so underachieved it's embarrassing, Bristol need a team to be playing in the top flight, BUT FOR THE LOVE OF GOD ...PLEASE NOT THEM!!!

  10. Forwards, by and large, do their own thing, regardless of managers. Defenders have to work together to a plan, under the guidance of a manager.

    If you change the manager every six months, the forwards will still score, but the defence will be chaotic.

    Obvious, I'd have thought.

    Of this I agree, if anyone needed proof of this they need to look at the Chelsea way as far as work rate and willingness to cover the hard yards for the cause. The harsh facts is that we always concede, that puts us at least 1-0 down before we kick a ball, no wonder the strikers have to score, and none more so than JET  :shifty:
