  1. Away to Roverz at the new Fruit Market stadium 🏟 Must be nearly finished and ready for the grand opening?
  2. As long as you work on or near a direct bus route or are fit enough to cycle in all winds and weather's then fine , but if you work across the other side of the city then the car is the only option.
  3. Not anymore, traffic is encouraged to use the A370/A38 Link Road I think Marvelous would like to do away with those pesky motorcar contraptions.
  4. For any of you with kids, or if you like Santa's or motorbikes, the annual Santa's on Motorbikes run returns tomorrow. Hundreds should be heading around Cumberland Basin near Ashton Gate at about 2pm on the way to the Charlton Farm Children's Hospice. Give them a wave
  5. Scriptwriter from the beeb is in attendance to gather ideas for the second series of Showtrial
  6. 10k average only just reached due to one massive home attendance (guess the opposition)
  7. I see one member of the jury has received a red card, no change there then!
  8. 3 bottles of Prosecco will be the defence in the wife beating case
  9. Joey's defence; It was handbags yer honour, bants, bit of pushing and shoving, goes on all the time in the tunnel after a match.
  10. Day two; The prosecution's opening statements have begun this morning and evidence from Daniel Stendel is expected to follow.
  11. Don't include me on another SL thread, I got lynched last week.
  12. Hey! Could be worse, could be gas, with a five bob fake sheikh in charge *are we allowed to say that?
  13. Ah yes, myol'man the billionaire you mean? I don't think so It would seem that due to EFL FFP rules no multimillionaire can plough money into his local club to break the parachute yo-yo monopoly, the Championship will become as divided as the Premier League. Every season there will be a top 2 or 3, with a dozen teams fighting for the scraps of a playoff place. From the fans point of view it might seem better to take the drop and hope for another Cotts season rather than bumbling along in the bottom half of the championship for the next 10 seasons. Thanks to @Davefevsfor explaining in detail why SL can't hand is dusty wallet over to Pearson. Conclusion, we're f*cked!
  14. @Davefevs in part 3 could you explain how at the end of his reign SL walks away with either a massive loss or a huge profit from his time here? Blows £45m on stadium redevelopment plus £100m on propping up the football club, but, by the end will own steady championship football club + never to be relegated Premiership rugby club + ladies & basketball teams + huge new Sports Village including hotels, apartments and events venue + massive housing development site over at Ashton Vale.
  15. Ah! I wondered how long it would be before someone mentioned the C word
  16. Taking pot shot at rugby Premiership for no relegation policy, Bears are just part of the closed shop now so they don't need anymore SL funding, finish bottom every season, no one cares!
  17. Yes, carry on please, very interesting
  18. Bringing the Bears into the discussion as we are all in the Bristol Sport team together, Bears are now much nearer being self sufficient than City. We all know SL funds both teams with huge amounts but he won't be here forever, so does he throw one more massive wedge at it before he rides off into the sunset? Or is he constrained by the FFP that you are about to explain? Thank you
  19. I know that I'm getting shot down in flames here, but outside of the four walls of OTIB, fans ask this question. The point I'm making is the Bears are safe in the Premiership bubble, they sure ain't gonna win it this season, City haven't really spent big for several windows, so, will Pearson be given a bit of leeway to improve the squad? £££ A couple of years ago it was being said that as we are nowhere near the £39m loss over 3 season threshold it'll be soon time to splash the cash. Hasn't happened yet? *puts on tin helmet
  20. Face coverings in retail and public transport to become mandatory
