  1. Having been to a few Devon derbies I can tell you Exeter fans don't give him an easy ride
  2. guessing you mean the one near Cardiff Central? good boozer that. Cardiff city centre in general got some great pubs
  3. Interesting that only Korey, Marlon and Frankie aren't LJ signings. Even Korey was signed by LJ at Oldham, so really only two players of our squad aren't Johnson's.
  4. Does anyone know the actual all-seater capacity of the Gate? 27,000 is banded around but that seems too round a number to be exactly correct. The 'old' AG was 21,497 (or similar - sure someone can correct me)
  5. great read and some interesting insights into working under Danny Wilson - going some way to confirming what many of us suspected
  6. started following in 2001/2002ish. Beat them home and away (2-0 tinnion and Roberts both games I think?) in 02/03 - but as a night match and a young'un I didn't go! That season we lost in the play-offs over two legs to Peter bloody Thorne. Then we didn't play them for a while until we went up and did beat them 1-0 at the Gate first season but then had those Championship years of regularly getting beaten including that 0-6 in the FA Cup (?). So I think I've only seen 3/4 wins against them, and having gone to LEGOLAND to watch us lose under SOD and a dull 0-0 under Cotts, I always think we're up against it versus them. Gutted I'm just that bit too young to have been there for games at Ninian - one in particular sticks out!
  7. A lot of these are the big evening kick offs - there is definitely something special about AG (old & new) under the lights.
  8. not ever living in Bristol and supporting City from the early 2000s it has always been Cardiff for me. I know the Gas is *the* game and the biggest rivalry but in terms of teams we've played over the last 20 years and where each club has been in the league, the only real rivalry we've had is against Cardiff. Which is a right pain as they usually beat us. For context, since I've followed City we've had 3 competitive games against blue few, all in the Football League Trophy - not exactly conducive of a mega rivalry from my perspective. I fully admit, if I lived in Bristol and had to put up with their moronic (albeit hard to find) fanbase I would feel differently I guess it's all about each individual's background/experience as to what makes the biggest rivalry. (therefore any game against Plymuff will always carry an extra bit of niggle for me, as will Southampton).
  9. one of the most iconic frontmen of all time. RIP.
  10. Oldland is City too iirc - in an old job of mine used to visit pubs around the south west and did quite a bit in Bristol. The Crown and Horseshoe was/is a City pub
  11. what's redfield like these days? Close proximity to Easton/St George should be gas by all accounts, but not sure if any OTIBers live there and can confirm/refute?
  12. completely agree it's a brilliant city in all aspects - compact, great sporting events and musical/theatre events. As a whole, despite a bit of banter towards England on matchday, it is all very amicable and pleasant. The worst thing about Cardiff is the **** football team and knuckle draggers who attend that lego stadium.
  13. Driving from Devon to the south coast this evening so this will get me through nicely. Come on leaps and bounds since Joe interviewed me outside of Hillsborough! (Was still good then though ofc)
  14. I seem to recall that it was intended for someone else (maybe Dele Adebola) but fell to Carey instead who finished with aplomb.
