  1. You're all hilarious. Screw the signing, that jacket is awesome. Agree 100%! I might actually buy something from the club shop!

    Travel Advice

    There's the ABus. I get this. They usually run 3 buses (possibly 2 as it's an evening ko). £2 for a single journey. They leave across the road from KFC. Leave the ground via the South Stand exit, past the John Atyeo statue, and then cross the busy road. Abus buses are a bit of a hotchpotch of buses: they usually put on 2 Abuses (the redish/browny ones) and then there's sometimes an ASDA bus. They all go to Brislington and stop at Temple Meads. Once it gets past the traffic near the stadium, it's fairly quick.

    Thanks a lot. Much appreciated.

    Millwall tickets (Merged)

    You've sort of answered this but just to be clear: to your knowledge, do away fans always get an escort out of the ground and to a train station? Or, does it depend on the club? Or, can away fans simply leave at full-time? I'll be heading back to Bristol. In a group of two!

    TRAFFIC WARNING trains will be very busy all day saturday

    Solidarity with all your train journeys to and from Bristol, Rob @Olé. You must spend a fortune on train travel.

    Korey Smith take a bow

    My favourite ever City player bar none. Took him a while to shake off his injury in 2015/16 and return to his best, but thank god he did. He does the simple things well. He is the engine of the team. Every good move goes through him. He's the cover at the back when Flint et al go up for a corner. He's quick, his timing is spot on. He does a decent job at right back. I bet he'd be good in goal. Never understood why he's never been captain. Not that it matters too much in football. And yet come the summer all the transfer talk will be about X, Y and Z bidding for Flint, Bryan and Reid. And no one will talk about bids coming in Smith. Let's hope it stays that way.

    Exactly. No question that I'll be renewing but a 14% increase takes the pee.

    I've been going to the FAN meetings for over a year now. In response to Adam Baker's question about what we wanted to see with re to STs, I said "no increase in prices as a minimum." Seems this has been ignored. My season ticket will go up from £429 (plus £2 booking fee) to £499. That's a seat in the Lower Dolman, centre. A £70 increase is far far too much. Correct me if I'm wrong (I know I will be as I'm hopeless at Maths) but that's a 14% rise.

    Time for some straight talk...!

    Have said on a previous thread this week, hard to underestimate the mental exertion the 3 big cup games have had. After yesterday I think it's pretty unlikely we'll make the play-offs. Being brutally honest I think we're going to lose our next 3 games and that will be that. Which will be hard to take after things up until Jan, but I'm more hopeful than ever that the club is in the rudest health it's been in my lifetime.

    @Michael McIndoe, interesting observations. Thanks. Without wanting to sound like a kiss arse, I hope us City fans realise how much of a coup/privilege it is having one of our former players now posting regularly on here. Testament to the quality and diversity of threads of here.

    Press Conference v Sunderland

    "I've been pleased with the response from the lads this week. It's been good to get away for a few days. We've put Bolton behind us and are chomping at the bit to get going again. This is the final third of our season and we need to be at our best from here till the end. They're a hungry bunch, they know things have been under par since the turn of the year, but I have a lot of faith in this group and am confident they'll turn it around."

    If we are still in the top 6 at the end of February.

    Bearing in mind the injuries, we'd actually overachieved until January. Considering we've had Bobby Reid leading the attack on his own. The revelation has been how well Wright has adapted as a full back. We need Paterson to find form again. Gone off the boil in recent games. One big factor to bear in mind is the mental exertion that the 3 huge cup games have had. Never mind the physical aspect of those games, the levels of concentration, the excitement, the adrenaline, ahead during and after would have been massive. We're not the only ones who get excited about these big games. We just need to get minds focused on the task ahead. I think we will sneak into the play offs but it's going to be very tight. The important thing is that we finish the season strongly. A good unbeaten 6-8 game finish puts us in a good position for the dreaded play offs.

    Cardiff... Bubble or not to bubble.....

    This has got to be pretty unprecedented, surely? 50% cut in our allocation. I know when Man U have had their away allocations reduced due to trouble, they've not lost out by this amount.

    Team for Bolton ?

    Johnson will stick with Korey at RB. And Mags won't start. It'll be the same XI that started on Sat with Brownhill possibly coming in for Paterson. Latter being rested.
