  1. It's been that long I gave up checking long ago! If you like Sci-Fi Peter F. Hamilton is always a good read too.
  2. Have you tried The Name Of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss? It's the first in a trilogy, and blew me away. Trouble is, the second book wasn't quite up to the same standards and there is no sign of the third yet.....
  3. I'm an awful driver and even I shoulder check!
  4. So what this does show is that we start well, have an awful middle 50 minutes or so and then come strong at the end of matches - or have I read it wrong?
  5. Mine went Ok on Thursday which is the day City told me it would.
  6. Generally just an episodic audio programme usually (but not always) based around a specific subject. You download or stream them the same way you would music.
  7. Just called Supporter Services to check, depending on your bank some payments are due to go on Thursday 9th rather than today.
  8. There seems to be quite a debate (well, a few posts but that's loads for their forum) on Gaschat about the respective sizes of Plymouth and the gas as football clubs. In an absurd jump of gaslogic they seem to think they are similar in both stature and potential!
  9. Agree with this, one of my favourites. Al Murray (pub landlord bloke) does quite an interesting WW2 one As much as I hate to say it as I normally like the bloke, the Peter Crouch one just came across as far too smug for me, really didn't get on with it.
  10. Can't help but feel an "away Season Ticket" of some kind could be utilised, guaranteeing holders first dibs on away match tickets. No idea how clubs currently in the Premier League do it though
  11. 'Premier League' fans are exactly as you described, they just don't get it. But that is still no reason to denigrate them all, they are just a different type of supporter, that is all. I have a friend I have known since primary school in Weston. The entire time I have known him he has been a Liverpool fan and is exactly like the people you mention above. I took him to Ashton Gate once, maybe 20 years ago. We sat in the stand around 30 minutes before kickoff at which point he scoffed loudly "City are so shit they need to practice before the match starts". he genuinely didn't realise players warm up on the pitch before games. their ignorance is such. All the same, he is very passionate about Liverpool, just in a different way.
  12. Being a TV fan is a completely different thing from being a real fan, the only thing they have in common are they are both based around football. A TV fan being a supporter of Man Utd or Chelsea (or whoever) is more akin to being a fan of Star Wars or Game of Thrones than anything you experience as a City fan. It has its own narrative and drama, but nothing will ever come close to the feelings we all had when the winner went in against Man Utd last season, or at Coventry in 1977, or Christian Roberts goal v Hartlepool (for just a few examples). But on the other hand, a TV fan will just go home from the pub for their dinner feeling nothing more than mild disappointment, whereas the depths experienced from following City are much greater too.
