  1. A few things from that match. Can you believe we started our first match after promotion to the top flight with no new signings? Imagine if we went up with our current side and didn't sign anyone. The team were sporting new shirts with a new robin suspension bridge badge....except Ray Cashley who still had the old badge on his shirt. How did we nearly get relegated with that team? We went on to do the double on Aresnal and Tottenham that season.
  2. I can remember City fans singing Roger Malone is a gashead. Then was surprised to hear on a visit to Eastville with a mate - who supported the opposition - the gas singing a similar song suggesting he was a city fan.
  3. NTTDS has had some quite brilliant threads, photos of roundabouts and industrial estates at obscure away grounds, helpful travel advice, return trips to Newcastle.....without getting off the plane. But my all time favourite story is of his well documented presence at the Sky Sports AGM each year, with even the broadsheets mentioning him in their write-up's. The whole meeting would kick off with James Murdoch wondering if NTTDS was there to ask why Bristol City weren't on Sky more often. If Murdoch had read some of his threads on here there would surely be a Karl Pilkington type series for NTTDS on Sky.
  4. I don't think the crowd gained too many caps!
  5. Yeah just paused mine online too. I may have misread the message as it disappeared quickly but I thought it said all 11 channels and recordings will still be available. Whatever, a good service from Sky, fair play
  6. The row behind the wall for the disabled section is where I sit, great view from up there and well out of the rain even when the eateries blow. It's a job to say how far back you've got to go, I'd probably swerve the first 10 rows to be sure.

  7. Yeah I get that, though there was a post saying they'd asked about next season. I was just trying to be light hearted in what is a bit of a grim time
  8. This is a situation I thought I'd never see, even at City! Paid for my season card on Sunday, thread on getting a refund for it on Tuesday.
  9. I'm in block 16 at the back and love it. The club won't sell any restricted view season cards, the disabled section wall doesn't interfere at all. The higher stairwell you can see is for the Lansdown club corporate punters only. It's the best bunch of people I've sat by, besides my mates obviously, for years. Great view, I was struggling a few seasons back with a behind the goal view, miss too much action, more legroom than the Dolman, out of the prevailing wind, what's not to like? Plus I see quite a few seats free which certainly wasn't the case by me last season
  10. RIP fellow red and thoughts with the family
  11. What can we do, maybe there's life on mars?
  12. May be wrong here but I've a funny feeling it was on MOTD, it was certainly seen by millions on tv. Someone will remember
  13. As we lived close to the Spanish border we would regularly visit the Costa Brava, we crammed in some basic Spanish only to find out they spoke Catalan. We did find a lot, especially close to the French border spoke French too, so at least we didn't have to sound like lazy English in conversation. But yes, on visits I've often thought Spanish would be relatively easy after French. I'd love to speak Italian and can understand a bits of written Italian when I'm there but not sure how easy it would be to learn.
  14. Used to hear this a lot, the Irish accent definitely doesn't help when trying to speak French.
  15. This is a very good point. I can remember my wife trying to explain how and why you construct a sentence to someone trying to learn French and they weren't interested saying just teach me some things to say and I'll build on that. It's not how it works and something I'll admit I fall down on. My French is like listening to a foreign football manager do an interview, you can understand all of it but it's full if grammatical mistakes.
