  1. Its difficult to know the exact amount we get although i'm sure its profitable, the best way to look at it though is paying for the stadium out of season. We don't really need to make a lot of money from it but what it does mean is that the stadium pays for its own maintenance in a time when traditionally it stays empty and just costs us money.
  2. But in fairness Leeds would have sad the same thing when they abandoned their change due fan pressure. Most of the merch changes from season to season along with the shirts and training wear so that's not a big problem and to be fair adding in the bridge version isn't that huge a change that they even need to update everything for it. Lots of teams use various versions of their badge or partial badge so having the bridge on shirts and stuff going forward while just having the robin on ball on legacy stuff isn't an issue. both were official designs anyway.
  3. Didn't mind the new one when it was shown but just thought it lacked something Bristol about it, definitely think the one someone knocked up with the bridge version is better and would like to see us change again the following season as merch etc is probably all sorted with the announced badge.
  4. I think it was stated at the very beginning of making our own kits that we'd like to expand into making other kits for other teams, seems like the first step down that path. Possibly a lot of local clubs in non-league and others would be interested in having at the very least the distributors as a local contact. Trying to deal with a manufacturer from elsewhere in the UK who doesn't really care about you because you're small volume bust be a nightmare for small clubs.
  5. The other thing is which L1 team (other than rovers because Max is better than anything they have) wants to throw a young inexperienced keeper in as first choice? The reality with keepers, unless they're a wonder kid then very few teams outside of Non-League will play them as anything other than backup as the risk of throwing a young keeper in is probably too great. Max is a good keeper but still learning, i can't see many clubs in L1 or L2 taking that risk over their 'proven' experienced keeper.
  6. You might be right but with so many players who 'can' play rightback at championship level is it better going forward we give Hunt (28) and Vyner (21) a go rather than offer another contract to Pisano who is 32 and according to other people (i'm making no judgement myself) not championship standard. Both Hunt and Vyner have played double the games Eros has this season too.
  7. As others have said though, we have Vyner coming back in the summer who has 31 championship appearances this season. if we want a more defensively minded rightback/centreback to play when we need to keep tight then surely he's it? Or Bailey? Most of this of course is assuming we don't lose one or both of our current centre backs in the summer and have to go back to Baker and Wright in the middle.
  8. They could probably make any home games they have left behind closed doors so no staffing required, but really it all depends what staff are still being paid if any. Are they youth kids and staff being paid? Who picks the team, are any of the managers senior or youth paid up straight? a real mess.
  9. The problem is the Lansdown was designed to be our stand, so connecting concourses and shared entry/exit routes. Short of bolting external stairs to the outside or hampering where the home and away fans can exit then its not really feasible to chuck them up there. Maybe if they introduce a 2nd tier on a remodelled Atyeo one day they can throw away fans up in the gods which making a lower level of home fans but i'd suggest we're far away from that currently.
  10. We came first though so he'd be called Bristol City the Dinosaur...
  11. While i have no real problems with the one the club has picked, i think this or a variation of it with the bridge is what will make our robin badge unique from badges like Sheff W and Spurs. I don't think the one we have is bad enough to warrant an urgent change but it would be good if @Matt Parsons BCFCSLO could maybe bring it to the clubs attention that there might be a real desire to evolve the badge for 20/21 season. Maybe a real public consultation between keeping just the robin and using something unique like the robin and bridge.
  12. Just looked and hes scored 4 goals in L2 averaging about 1 every 350mins, that's about 1 every 3 and a bit games. Not sure rave reviews or not that its going to help us fix our relative goal drought in the Championship! If he finishes the season well then maybe chance of fringe squad or L1 loan but that's about it! Its good experience for the lad but lets not get carried away! If you want someone from L2 to come save us then Nicky Maynard, Kieran Agard and Big John Akinde all feature in the top 10 top scorers so far this season.
  13. Might be worth seeing if you can find someone to drag out a list of players from the football manager database, it might not be 100% on such an obscure (at least for European based players) alternate nation but it's mostly fact checked and corrected where possible!
  14. I see what they were trying to do but overall a horrible video... The thens are from really random times, everything from about 100 years ago to relatively recent for ours and Birmingham. They could have at least found photos for then as pre-1950 or something for everyone! Then there's the whole computer image for our current stadium....
  15. Arguably although i don't really agree with it is it any different to us giving Louis Carey enough game time to get the record? That season he wasn't really in contention to play outside of being a good influence at training.
