  1. Most teams have had matches postponed due to heavy rain but, whilst at Eastville, Rovers managed to have a flooded pitch that was definitely unique
  2. Even if you can't use your SC rugby match allowance for tomorrow’s game, it would be nice if you could contact the club to find out. It's crazy that people have to use the OTIB forum to find out basic information
  3. Are your and your friends seats linked on the system? If they are, one person can buy match tickets in one transaction for everyone. Maybe you could have done one transaction the for seat transfers. If your seats are linked, and you still couldn’t do it, it’s another flaw with the system
  4. North Ferriby today, Bristol Rovers tomorrow. It happens to all small clubs in the end
  5. Should City reach the promised land of the Premier League, whether the crowd was 25k or 30k would be irrelevant. The big money comes from TV revenue not gate receipts. That’s why SL, who is a shrewd businessman, hasn’t spent tens of millions buying the houses and rebuilding the Atyeo. It would need City to become an established Premier League team, regularly in the top half of the league, for the situation to change
  6. Actually it’s a cunning ploy by SL. Most of the houses behind the Atyeo that go on sale are owned by Bristol Sport and don’t really get sold. The “for sale” signs are just put up to convince the owners of the few non Bristol Sport houses that that the club has no interest in extending the Atyeo. Thus, when one of these people decide decide to sell their house, it can be bought at a bargain price by Bristol Sport. You heard it here first!
  7. Cole Skuse has recently sold his house in Ipswich
  8. Without a doubt he was awful, but needs must. Fielding and Maenpaa are out for the rest of the season so City had to get another goalkeeper from somewhere. Due to only being able to sign contracted players in a window, it had to be someone who was a free agent - ie Marinovic. I’m sure LJ thought playing him against Ipswich was a safe option
  9. Could we have a repeat of Ray Cashley’s goal?
  10. Middlesbrough manage to sign players. If they go there, they will go anywhere, if the money is right
  11. The “Pack Situation” illustrates a problem with the squad as there is no obvious replacement. Smith could do the job, if he was fit, but he’s not, and there’s no guarantee how good he will be next season. Brownhill might do the job but moving him back would lose his attacking flair and goals. Of the rest, Morrell is inexperienced and Walsh lacks, IMO, defensive qualities. A midfielder must be on the shopping list in the summer.
  12. Absolutely crazy. Unfortunately some lower Premier League clubs, such as WBA, believe they have a Devine right to play in the Premier League. When they sink into the Championship they expect to be top of the league and be promoted at the first attempt. Football doesn’t work like that. They were relegated because they had a team of over paid, and underperforming players. Darren Moore has done a fantastic job in turning things around but he needed time
  13. It wasn’t pretty but Biesla’s job is to get promotion. That’s the sort of away performance, against a top 6 team, that does the job. If the situation was reversed and City had won 1-0 away to Leeds then the forum would be awash with comments about what a wonderful performance it was.
  14. Perhaps you should post a pic of yourself, so that we can judge if you’re in the haute couture or Wurzle Gummage category
  15. Hopefully you mean on the pitch, not in the park after the match
