  1. Had some business dealings involving MA. His response to our price was "Thats ridiculous" even though it real terms it was a bargain. The next day we he spunked out £1.5mill on Gustav Engvall. Oh how I wish I had rang him to give my opinion on Mr Engvalls worth some months latter.
  2. It was indeed Ken Avery. Gerald was his son. Been racking my brains for the dads name. Well done.
  3. Not sure it was ever Fowlers. It was Averys for many years. I used to play rugby with Gerald the son. Fowlers could of bought it guess but i cant remember that.
  4. I had already decided prior to Covid that I would not be renewing my season card. Numerous reasons really, mostly the poor quality of entertainment severed up, bored rigid would sum it up. Parking nightmares around AG, traffic in general getting there and the pi55 poor atmosphere associated with the crap served up. Not missed it in the slightest, simply revisited old hobbies and interests as a substitute. Let’s hope for those returning when normality finally prevails that the powers that be and players recognise the importance of fans in the ground. Let’s face it footie without fans is just 22
  5. This is the very reason i have given up going or even watching football. The modern game bores the life out of me. Sterile risk free sideways football. Not the game for me anymore.
  6. Some years ago I went to an event and was seated next too a quite elderly lady who I had never meet before. With Introductions complete she said "so what are you interests". Football I replied, "Bristol City since I was a small kid". She smiled and said "Your too young to remember him but I sold my house to a City player named John Galley. That was enough we got on like a house on fire after that.
  7. I decided prior to the lock down that I would not be renewing. Two years of sterile football and restrictions on parking was the last straw for me after many years of being a season card holder. Lock down has simply reinforced my resolve. I have not missed football in the slightest, to such an extent that I could not even be bothered to watch the bcfc live games via the net. I think quite a few will have found other interests and will not bother renewing. Even my visits onto this forum have plummeted. Still be looking out for results though.
  8. Tried make this thread as simple as possible. Who is NOT renewing. Clearly most people will but a significant number won’t, the ones that are not was my interest. I think I will just give up.
  9. It seems like me numerous posters are not looking to renew their season cards for next year. It would be interesting to get an idea of otib posters planning not to renew. Maybe just post numbers rather than full on text reply. Please don’t derail the thread by posting comments, just numbers. 3 of us.
  10. Not fussed about what game/games it will be, may not be any. Simply jarred off with the whole deal really. Who knows i may miss it I may not. All i do know is have had enough.
  11. Completely in agreement with the OP. Sad day for me, but I have quite simply have had enough of the whole experience.
  12. Our group of 3 will not be renewing. Just pick the games we fancy next year. The whole experience has gone very flat for us. Parking restrictions, shite sideways footbal, loads of matchs not on a sat at 3.0 poor atmosphere. The reward is just no longer worth the expence or the effort. It maybe we are just a bunch of tired old gits now, who knows. It will feel strange but at least i wont be trolling out the same old “why do i bother” line when leaving the ground.
  13. Maybe your just easily pleased.
  14. How true is that. I am calling it a day after this season for that very reason. Going to games has become such a chore, I am simply not enjoying the bore thats served up. Its been the best part of 60 years going to the gate, never for once thought it would come to this.
  15. Wow. That cop is off his head. He could easily have killed the young lad. Surely they must be trained and know the dangers of cracking someone like that. He needs a spell in the nick for that.
