  1. Wait until the Flyers get there spanking brand new home next to Ashton Gate. The sags will be the fourth most supported team in Bristol and not a tent in sight. That's of course if they are still in Bristol by then as there's a very good stadium in Nailsworth that might need pitching up to overnight.
  2. Blimey, THAT bad. You know things are bad when even swindle outnumber you. As for changing their name I would suggest Berwick Rovers as they have a lot in common, same sort of attendances, similar successful football history, similar facilities (minus tents of course) experience of going non league and really local.
  3. Well, of course we can apply the "posh logic" back at them with Sammy is such a naturally gifted player who's not leaving yet but with all of the interest in him is a £10M player in the making.
  4. For me it's swindle. Always giving it large. I pretty much detested them before, but continually hanging on to their one season in the premier league before the spectacular nose dive out of it, much like Forest with the "famous club" song but that double winning season, the sense of injustice both on and off the pitch was palpable. The return match was oh so sweet and would've been even better had that midget Thomson been there. I see the sags only as a laughing stock and there's plenty to choose from out there with skeletor a parody of your typical sad sag. .
  5. Even "hot shot" Nicholls has a better record than him [just]
  6. As for the Bristol derby; no I don't miss it. Rather than using our relative success as a yardstick and incentive for their own club they are more content with trying to drag us down to their level. So playing them using their mindset [unless it was an unlikely cup match] would only mean that we have fallen back down to their level. They will never get to and compete to our level.
  7. This is why I would always consider him to be odious. I can't buy in to the people who would gladly have him here as a manager or show appreciation or admiration for what he has achieved as a manager. My thoughts are that as he's frequently in the media and as he's publically stated how proud he is to be a Bristolian; he should be actively supporting and promoting everything that is good about sport in Bristol, blue or red. This blinkered approach and backhanded compliments do him a disservice.
  8. I know there's another thread on this but reading tripe like this makes me wonder what goes through skeletor's head. "I hope we get there before they do" "We need each other" Actually we don't need you at all. Take a look around and see the progress we're making. If anything it just proves that the bloke is a complete and utterly deluded old sag.
  9. I for one can't wait for that day. Not just for Bristol City, but also for Benik Afobe, he deserves it.
  10. For me, an absolutely wonderful player. I loved watching how he would just glide past players like he was just playing "off the cuff". Which, I would imagine is how he goes through life. So talented and with a unique penalty action, just brilliant. I was never quite sure whether he was taking the mickey out of the keeper with that oh so slow walk up. I take great satisfaction that he was a success here and I'd certainly have him up there with Trunds & Jacki.
  11. As someone's alluded to already, we played some of our best football with him at right back. I just hope we haven't shot ourselves in the foot as he has leadership qualities off the pitch as well. We had a similar scenario with Luke Ayling; at the time was he our best right back? No (Mark Little) Was he our best centre back? No (Flint & Derrick Williams) Was he our best midfielder? No (Korey, Wade Elliott & Marlon Pack) so we got rid. Look how it's turned out for him.
  12. You've got to say well done to the LJ and the team. We did to Barnsley what Shrewsbury did to us, we stayed in the game long enough for that one bit of quality. That was the difference. Barnsley were the better side and unlike Milwall and Blackburn who did a job on us, they continued their high pressing style throughout the game and with fatigue inevitably creeping in, the one time Dasilva got down the wing created the one moment of quality. The team were more aggressive 2nd half and tried to break up their play. They put in a shift, it wasn't pretty at times so well done. Barnsley's new style will cause teams a lot of problems from now until the end of the season. What really concerns me is the lack of identity. Maybe that's the players at his disposal but this isn't the Bristol City that gave the Manchester clubs a fright. That's my concern.
  13. Stay of execution? Two clean sheets. Playing without our A List main striker for most of the season. Just outside the play offs. Don't be so dramatic!

    We will get a result; we'll either win, lose or draw, silly.

    Hmmm , let me look into my crystal ball. FFS that's like hearing the door bell ring and somebody saying "I wonder who that is?"
