  1. Both thought they should have just walked into the team. Both were underperformers. Bridges career was already in terminal decline and Wilkshire was lightweight and I recall always preoccupied with making the Socceroos squad to the detriment of his club game. Best thing Gary could’ve done was throw a grenade in the dressing room and change the personnel and culture - he did both then got promotion in his first full season.
  2. Hi all I’ve been trying to find the pic of Louis Carey embracing Shaun Goater as the latter leaves the field in his final game at Southend in 2006. I’m sure I saw it recently. Could anyone upload it or help me find it? It’s Bobby Moore-Pele esque - arguably better! Cheers!
  3. Can anybody tell me the last season Bristol Rovers did not lose to a team from a lower division (or from non league) in any competition? Seems to be a regular occurrence.
  4. Are the Ashton Gate 8 and their families receiving anything for their part in the design of this kit? The commercialisation of this sorrowful chapter of our history doesn’t sit well with me otherwise.
  5. Legends Bar NYC (basement bar) by Empire State Building is home to a few supporters groups including BCFC NYC group who occasionally meet for televised matches. They have their own flag and the bogs feature a few City related sticker bombs Search for Bristol City Supporters USA Group on Facebook. Steve Attwell is the organiser, friendly bloke.
  6. Jay Emmanuel Thomas would be right up there for me. The most exciting player I’ve seen at AG in the last 10 years and was instrumental in keeping our head above water in the O’Driscoll era.
  7. Bollocks from the OP. GT lives and breathes local football and serves both Bristol clubs well. We all know how much the BBC invests in local sport. Pound for pound we’re lucky to have a broadcaster that gives it so much heart.
  8. Was mentioned by Jon L in the latest A Cider With OSIB podcast. The answer was that the pillars didn’t go away, they just stopped talking about them. Talk is cheap. Credit to the club for the way they’ve silently and diligently implemented things in last 5 years.
  9. I was Match, my brother was Shoot in the nineties. Can remember Match mag’s weird obsession with Wimbledon player Peter Fear. And Matchman’s jaunts with the Liverpool ‘spice boys’. What it lacked in football insight, it made up for with good humour.
  10. Hope so. A good January could be the difference. We’ve got it wrong in the last couple of years and faded when it truly mattered. Not for the want of trying I’m sure. Just hope we’ve learnt from it.
  11. See above mate. Mean probably but it’s not bigotry or discriminatory. There’s nowhere for the Gas to hide on this one. Barely a season goes by without some kind of hate fuelled incident from that mob. A real embarrassment.
  12. That’s the point though, all homophobic chants are aimed at gay people in the population. It’s the same for race or disability. Surely it’s not difficult to see the difference between chanting on these lines when compared with being fat etc. And yes, the holding hands chant is obviously homophobic. It’s also cringeful to hear. Whether the Brighton fans were offended is irrelevant.
