  1. Six Nations 2018 (Merged)

    France - Italy The Italians have been refreshingly attack minded in their first two games, and I can see them breaking the 20 point mark today against a French side that will give them field position through penalties. Despite their ill discipline, the French are clearly the better side on paper and should win, but if Italy can fully capitalise on the French discipline problems, and inevitable mistakes, they have a chance. France by 15 Ireland - Wales The Irish love playing the Welsh about as much as most of us like a hot poker up the bum. The Welsh's fast pace always seems to unsettle a normally sturdy Irish defence. If they can get it wide quick and kick their points too, the Welsh have a great chance. The Irish on the other hand are methodically reliable, and should score around the 20 point mark. For me this game will be settled by how well the Irish can adjust their defence to deal with Wales, but they should have enough. Ireland by 5 Scotland - England The way the Scots hung in there against France before nicking it will give them renewed hope against the English. However perhaps Scotland's success a fortnight ago was more a French collapse than a Scottish triumph. Their defence is porous as the Welsh showed on game day 1, and England proved last year. With genuine ball carrying ability back in the form of Nathan Hughes, England have the platform off which Ford and Farrell can wreck havoc releasing the English runners. That said, if the Scots can find their form that they found in the Autumn against the Southern Hemisphere teams, then all bets are off. England by 20

    I guess the Leeds debacle has made it topical
  3. New Crest

    As a relatively young forum member I have only known the current badge, and to be honest, for me, I wouldn't want it to change. Sentimentally I guess I'm attached to it. And for what it's worth, I love the yellow Unicorns.

    Opened this thread afraid that he'd died. Nearly had a heart attack
  5. The megaphone

    Group 3: The male voice choir comprised mostly of tenors who get awfully upset at the absence of sheet music at every game which we feel would maximise volume, as well as providing some pretty sexy harmonies.
  6. The megaphone

    It's a very very broad stroke and of course many exceptions, but actually quite accurate of our fanbase.
  7. City - Crude, Aggressive, basic

    Add Lee Gary Danny Brian Our managers this Millennium have to just been the lads down the pub.
  8. Better or worse without Pack

    I agree, however when we weren't able to counter at pace, I think we missed him when the game needed controlling a bit more.

    Hate to be pedantic but you haven't liked it at all #ILiveForTheReactions
  10. The megaphone

    Modern football in England is quiet stadiums where you can hear the players talking. The Sunderland game is a great example of that. You can't then try and label the people who are trying to change that with that tag. It isn't even a modern idea. Drums and megaphones have been common place in virtually every country bar this one for decades. If it puts you at ease, the spontaneousness isn't gone. The guys who started the song towards the end started it and then the drummer and megaphone guy picked up on it, and got it across the whole section quickly. They then helped keep it going to avoid the dreaded rule of 2*. *Rule of 2: The really annoying habit where Bristol City fans only sing a chant twice through with incredible reliability. Particularly 'Come on you Reds' and 'Ole Ole Ole Ole Bristol City'
  11. The megaphone

    I seriously don't understand this view. Having been to many matches in Europe the atmospheres are genuine and far above the English ones. Just because they add a bit of theatre and colour to their support doesn't detract at all. There is no difference between a guy banging on the wall of the stand and a drum. There is no difference between a guy with a megaphone and a guy with a big mouth. On the other hand our organic atmosphere has been overwhelmingly dire for some time...
  12. The megaphone

    Didn't hear the megaphone but the drumming was great this evening. Not just boom boom boom like a metronome. Some people will whinge it seems they'd rather a silent AG than a loud one with megaphones and drums. It was great tonight and a massive improvement.

    Already knocking out t-shirts with 'I survived the Earthquake of 2018' on them.

    Mental times!
  15. Strangest or funniest thing you’ve seen at Ashton Gate

    Jamie Mac went to take a corner in the EE/Williams corner, and the Sheffield United fans were giving him all kind of grief. Jamie whipped the ball directly into the goal and turned to the Sheffield United fans to give them a bit back.
