  1. We didn’t have a 16000 capacity that season. The capacity of the Dolman was reduced throughout the season and we even lost the lower tier of the stand by January. As JBFCII correctly points out, we sold out the home tickets for most of our games that season.
  2. Correct. The following campaign we spent most of the season in and around the bottom 3 only ensuring our survival in the Championship with 2 games to spare. That season we officially had the most ‘full’ stadium, on average, outside of the Premier League. The capacity was reduced to around the 15k mark but considering Rovers barely get above 7k Gasheads at home when they’re doing well it’s clear that City fans are far more loyal to our club, even when we’re in a relegation battle for an entire season.
  3. Just can’t bring themselves to say “over 20,000” can they? Desperate to make the gap in attendances seem much closer than it is to protect their ickle feelings and not highlight how shit their support is. They’re 4th in L1, best start to the season in donkeys years and they’ve been getting crowds of 7k and below. Just let that sink in.... But of course, they’ve always got excuses...bike rides, summer holidays, too close to Christmas, can’t just turn up with a pocket full of shrapnel and pay at the turnstiles, Champions League on the TV, Darrells gone....DARRELLS GONE
  4. Fullofshititis. Chronic lifelong disease. Symptoms: Feelings of Inferiority, Dislike of Horses, tendency to spout utter bullshit on a regular basis, Sexual Deviancy, Horrendous B.O.
  5. Typical bitter nob head. Knows the truth but has to lie. Its like a chronic disease they all suffer from.
  6. Absolutely guaranteed. 12:00 KO Sunday lunchtime, keep the Police and Sky TV happy. No doubt the club would prefer it as well. I can’t see a return of the days of knocking off work at lunchtime, spending all afternoon drinking in Bedminster before watching a Bristol Derby under the lights.
  7. I think he’s that Redeye geezer that used to accuse all football fans of being alcoholics.
  8. You ask if racism is a problem at City games and then you describe an incident that sounds like you were attending a rally held by the invisible knights of the East Mississippi KKK. Clearly IF what you said happened, happened then yes, there’s a real problem. I presume you’ve spoken to the club about this?
  9. I haven’t personally heard any racism at Ashton Gate since the mid 90s, that’s not to say that it never happens. Sadly it probably happens at every football ground in the country from time to time.
  10. I will mate, don’t know what came over me
  11. There is a video on YouTube of a BBC documentary about the ownership of Luton Town at that time as well as the financial difficulties and the ridiculous (and almost certainly rigged) ‘Manager Idol’. Its called Trouble at the top and if you’ve got 40 minutes spare I highly recommend anyone to watch it. Jaw dropping stuff in places, makes the Gas look professional.
  12. Absolutely. Can’t do us any harm that’s for sure.
  13. No, that was the following year. In Jan 2013 we were a very poor Championship club heading back to L1 under the cheerful guidance of Sean O’ Driscoll. Makes the tweet (if real) even funnier.
  14. Don’t know if this is real? Looks genuine, hilarious if so. Shows his opinion deep down about the club he now plays for. Could’ve used many different examples but picked Bristol Just shows how they are viewed by others outside the City....despite what terrified opposition fans tell them when they’re cornered in ‘the Welly’ by needy, dribbling Sags.
  15. It was a sell out, as was Man City and a few others before and since. However it was a sell out in the sense that all available tickets were sold. Unfortunately due to segregation we can’t really have a truly ‘full house’ however it’s fair to assume that had it been possible for the League Cup games against Manchester and Manchester this would’ve been easily achieved.
  16. Ahh, I didn’t realise that. Maybe not as far fetched as I thought then. Interesting.
  17. This is an extra complication and another reason why I can’t see this being a genuine possibility. Clearly IF Leeds have a reasonably watertight season long loan and they’re happy to lose Nketiah (whilst knowing he is likely to go to a possible promotion rival, we would surely have to compensate Leeds or expect them to just write off a large % of the original fee. How would that sit with Arsenal? would they expect an additional fee from us? If I was in charge at Leeds I’d just say “we’ve paid for him to play for us this season, he’s staying, if Arsenal don’t like the amount of game time we’re giving him then tough...their satisfaction is not our priority” I think Leeds are probably well in the driving seat here.
  18. Every single club in the League has fans who ridiculously overreact after a couple of bad results. Gaaheads are no different to us in that respect, no matter how much they pretend otherwise.
