  1. How disappointing is this season turning out to be.We seem to be in an endless cycle of false dawns and mediocrity . I didn’t mind the LJ appointment he had actually done something at couple of other clubs.And people have short memories of how well we played in that cup run and the matches around that. Unfortunately he did seem to run out of ideas therefore a change was the right decision,However he was quite hamstrung by having to sell his best players. The farce around the Holden appointment when clearly anyone could see we wouldn’t have taken six weeks and then suggested he was the best can
  2. Being a Bristolian and family living in Bedminster for generations,I naturally became a died in the wool City supporter. That will never change. However that doesn’t mean I happily put up with mediocrity. I don’t go as often as I did and with the fair on offer this season I would probably have been an irregular attender,as someone above stated ,there are lots of things in life competing for my funds. Interestingly I went a lot through the dire early eighties.But at least those teams were full of characters and we were backs to the wall in it together. This current squa
  3. Tom Richie at eastville in the cup . The infamous 1-0 down 2-1 up we knocked rovers out the cup game. We were on a dreadful downhill spiral and really didn’t expect much especially after the gas went 1-0 up .But the miracle happened and the packed open end at eastville bounced and cheered ,the joy of that goal especially bearing in mind the opposition was amazing.The euphoria at the final whistle was fantastic.
  4. Please ,no references to Bannister and Warboys on a city forum. So many people on here won’t know what I’m on about!
  5. Vyner has looked more composed than all of our supposed midfielders. Perhaps there is another Bobby Reid like change of position on the cards.
  6. Whatever we’ve changed,change it back. We’ve gone from being all over them to be all under them!!
  7. They are there for the taking. It will come.Just need to string some passes together on the attacking areas.
  8. We look the more likely team and I worryingly expect us to win 3-1. Cue a second half drubbing!! On a different note ,Mawson looks a big unit ,does he usually carry that much timber.He has the physique of Dave Rodgers for those of a certain age on here.
  9. I can see where people are coming from. Call me old fashioned ,but the 3rd round of the cup always used to be one of my favourite and most exciting games of the year ,especially if we got a good draw. I do prefer the days when everyone used to take it seriously and play their strongest teams.
  10. And all these celebrities going to the Maldives and Dubai purely for ‘business’ reasons. Such a shame as they are both lovely places for a winter holiday.
  11. Why not have the vote at halftime,if it’s out ,then the remaining back room staff can play spoof for the privilege of being the manager second half. I really think we may have something here.
  12. And what the hell does Barry Gibb think he’s doing there (front right photo)he’s well over 70 and at significant risk!!
  13. Didn’t he help us with the transfer fee of Alan Walsh that went to a tribunal. Darlington wanted 60k ,I’m not sure why Tommy doc was involved,but he said ‘they’re just buying one player not the whole team’ We got Walsh for 18k-what a bargain.
  14. I think that’s very unfair.There were a period of several games at that time including the big cup matches where we played some fantastic football. The puzzle is ,having achieved that standard and pattern of play ,how we veered so dramatically off it and the season fizzled out. Since then we have sold our better players and recruited poorly and no longer have any recognisable format that is going to work. Shame as this season the championship is wide open.
  15. Also a few years earlier we sold Kodja for a good profit and of course Bryan and Reid also increased the coffers significantly. We really haven’t spent our considerable incoming transfer fees well .
