  1. Bags in Stadium

    I usually take a rucksack, and as said above, they search it (half-heartedly) and then put a tag on it to show it's been searched. Don't get there just before kick-off though. If there are any issues, can be sorted out if you give it plenty of time.

    Out of interest, did he say what this would look like? e.g. Priority 1: STHs who've been to 5 + away games; Priority 2: STHs who've been to 3+ aways etc.
  3. Manchester Novelties

    Anyone buying or selling these abominations should be put in the stocks.

    Good point. No idea!

    This is where the loyalty points system we used to have would have helped. I've always thought that members who go to plenty of away games but fewer home due to not living in or near Bristol should be rewarded.

    Only your own.

    I'm obviously going to buy my own seat, but think the prices are rather steep. By about £10. I know the club will want to make as much dosh as possible, but don't think they needed to charge as much. Priority basis seems fair. Manchester won't be happy with their reduced allocation, but this game means far more to us than them so can't be helped.
  8. City vs Manchester - Dustbin Thread (merged)

    I wonder if tickets will go on sale before the game kicks off...
  9. Bailey Wright - Suspended for 2 matches

    Ok, have looked at the footage again. It's actually more obvious there's a connection with Bailey's face as well as his chest when watching in real time. The video slowed down makes it much harder to see the face contact bit.
  10. Bailey Wright - Suspended for 2 matches

    This is the key. Bailey's reaction. We all hate it when players go to ground, holding their face, writhing around in so-called agony, even when contact hasn't been made to their face. But, others seem to think there was contact as well with his face, or near.
  11. LJ v Warnock

    The biggest change was LJ learned that tinkering with his starting XI and formation almost every game was having a massively adverse effect. He didn't fully learn this for several weeks after the Cardiff game though. Once we had a settled XI, results changed for the better. This season, changes have tended to be enforced due to injury. Plus, players in their second year have got a lot better: COD, Brownhill, for example.
  12. Four TV games in December

    Villa game time moved "to aid players' recovery." How thoughtful.
  13. Four TV games in December

    Also just noticed Villa away on New Year's Day is at 5.30pm. Has it always been 5.30?? Another live game?
  14. Four TV games in December

    Just checked our fixtures on our website and Wolves game down for 5.30pm, on Sky. Same date: Sat 30th Dec. https://www.bcfc.co.uk/fixtures-results/first-team/201718-fixtures/
  15. City vs Manchester - Dustbin Thread (merged)

    Agree. Surely the home club dictates prices for home and away tickets. As is the case for league games. We should be charging Man U fans £20 for their tickets. I don't believe in ripping off fans of any clubs. And similar for home fans.
