  1. Not too many visitors looking at their forum; The Temple meads closure has put iff some who travel by train. However why have we only sold 500 during the season ticket priority window. A complete arse of a journey in August with all the Cornwall holiday traffic will put many off. £33 per ticket , I’m not paying that ! I spoke to someone at the ticket office yesterday said they were selling well and they would be asking Bristol for more I bought 2 tickets this morning which were 589 & 590...Should take 1000+ I think 1,000 would be OK, hopefully a few more. They're not the most attractive opposition and the ground is a swine to get to.
  2. Fifty years ago we thought it was rubbish. Back then though the volume was deafening and fans on the open end as well as in the stand were covering their ears.
  3. Despite this so many fans cannot understand it when City win when we expected defeat nor when we lost the game we expected to win. A; we're Bristol City and B; this is the Championship.
  4. I asked a neighbour why they always drive into a parking bay."Because I'm no good at reversing". I didn't ask how they get they get out of that parking bay though.
  5. Norwich did have halves for a while.
  6. I read "Gerry Gow's legacy" and thought you meant;
  7. "1-0 down, 2-1 up, Midtjylland (who) knocked Celtic out of the Euro Cup"!
  8. Too true. One day City were playing QPR, and I turned the TV on just as Brechin City 0 Queen's Park 3 flashed up!
  9. A Brechin fan used to post on this forum. Like us, their colours are red & white and they are BCFC causing him to take an interest in us.

    FA Cup 2021-21

    Some of our locals ended up in a different part of the Extra Prelim draw. And in the Preliminary Round
  11. BBC red button stated Match Abandoned. Was it 1-0 at the time?
  12. https://www.thefa.com/news/2021/jul/09/20210709-emirates-fa-cup-extra-preliminary-and-preliminary-round-draws-made Those progressing from the EPR picking up £1125 and those in the PR collecting £1444. Losing clubs will get £375 and £481 respectively in each round. I've pulled out our localish clubs. Saturday 7th August Extra preliminary Round. Saturday 21st August Preliminary Round
  13. The majority of the entire Scottish League is based on the Edinburgh - Glasgow corridor. Peterhead, Cove Rangers and previously, Elgin and Inverness had worries about the increased travelling when promoted from the Highland League. Finances aren't that good in our National League, but a few years ago Bath travelled to Gateshead where the attendance was just 900.
  14. So we could end up with Swindon; Manager and no players and Rovers players, but no Manager. A merger of mediocrity on the cards?
  15. Open End 1968 - 69 was 2/6 (12.5p) for under 16s, 5 bob (25p) for over 16s. Then the prices started rising an in 1972 as a 17 year old, my first job paid £510 / year, yes less than £10 / week. Living at home was essential.
  16. That, like all seated stadia, was a recommendation of that Taylor report. For some reason, clubs didn't adopt that one and the league did not enforce it.
  17. Just for interest's sake; Fort William began with a 3-0 defeat. Celtic B drew 1-1 at home to East Kilbride whilst Rangers B game at East Stirlingshre was abandoned.
  18. OK, these teams struggle financially any way, but last year was a complete write off for them. Both the Lowland & Highland Leagues kick off their new season today. There are two new teams in the Lowland League; Celtic B and Rangers B. That's a useful precedent. If English Prem teams want to play their B teams in the EFL, suggest they play in the National League. There was mention on here some time back about Fort William FC who lost at least 23 games in each of the last few seasons letting in a minimum of six goals each game. They are still with us and play today.
  19. I mentioned this to the boss at work as he's 'pool fan. "It'll all be cleared up by then. There's no way you're getting a 3-0 walkover win against us".
  20. Cherri Lunghi looked both smart and practical as The Manageress.
  21. In a few weeks time they'll be showing that match where Rovers played their part in a nine goal thriller at White Hart Lane!
  22. For all our younger forum members; Terry Neil had just been appointed Arsenal Manager "I'm going to shake this team up" he promised at the time. Arsenal then went and spent a great sum of Malcolm MacDonald. He told the press how he was going to score against Bristol City and would score 30 goals that season. In the end he scored just 29. City's entire team that day cost just one third of what MacDonald cost Don't forget City won the return fixture at AG 2-0!
  23. Yep; same time next Monday. I was at Highbury that day, but am still enthralled watching replays of that game. Rugged tackles going in, but players staying on their feet and not appealing to the ref. Afterwards the London Evening Standard printed "Tom Ritchie is obviously an England player of the future". Showing my age here, but the shirts of both teams look so much better without an advert splashed across it.
