  1. Baker 3 game ban CONFIRMED (Merged)

    https://www.11v11.com/teams/bristol-city/tab/opposingTeams/opposition/Leeds United/ Last time we won there was 1979. Since then not even a league point or draw in the cup. Looks like we did pretty well against them in the 70s. The run after the win in our very first game against them is shocking!
  2. Milan Djuric. Silence?

    https://www.bcfc.co.uk/news/injury-concern-for-captain-wright/ Last sentence on here, no news on Jens Hegeler on here though.
  3. Kevin De Bruyne

    I also feel that his comments are a bit more respecting of BCFC as a club that actually deserve to be semi-finalists, rather than treating us as "plucky losers" from a lower league. Should Man Utd beat Yeovil by, say 4-1 on Friday night with Yeovil having made a good account of themselves, then you would expect to hear the usual "congratulations on your magnificent defeat" by the usual pundits. If were are to be taken seriously as a potential Premier League club, the first thing we, as fans, need to do is cut out all this "but he didn't lavish enough praise on us in our hour of defeat" nonsense! It's not as if we haven't levelled criticism at any aspects of last nights performance is it?
  4. Kevin De Bruyne

    Quite right. That was the best performance by any away player I have seen at AG. That accolade has previously gone to Liam Brady when he ran the show in a 1-0 Arsenal top flight win in 1980. Brady stood out in a game where his skill level shone out like a beacon in what was a bit of a drab but hard working physical match, albeit typical of the time. What promoted KDB to my top away performer at AG was that, in my eyes, he stood out like a beacon in a team that was absolutely packed with world class players. But opposition players are not football pundits. He was just saying it as he saw it, and was not derogatory in any way. Why do we expect opposition players to blow smoke up the club and supporters' collective arses? All this whingeing and preciousness makes us look a bit tin-pot tbh.
  5. Anybody had an omen today?

    This must mean a goal each for squad numbers 19 - Niclas Eliasson and 9 - Famara Diedhiou...possible, not very likely, but who knows?
  6. Scam parking tickets at Forest match?

    ciderage, what was the outcome of this? I ask as I had a similar notice after the Norwich game. Funnily enough I always park in roughly the same space (and have done for a few years now) and thought I would be OK having got away with it when you were clocked during the Forest game. I also parked there for the Man Utd, Reading and Wolves games without getting a notice. My inclination is to cough up the £45 before getting into the realms of paying £100 plus possible court fees etc., but would be interested to see how your "case" has progressed. Thanks.
  7. Now Yeovil draw Man Utd

    I think the OP means MU are "coming back to Somerset", having played at Yeovil 3 years ago.
  8. Snodgrass the bogeyman?

    https://www.11v11.com/matches/bristol-city-v-leeds-united-12-february-2011-293815/ I remember seeing the one in this match, he took a sublime touch to wrong foot David James and then just passed it into the net in front of the Atyeo. Followed by some less than sublime antics in the Upper Dolman involving some Leeds fans from Plymouth!
  9. Happy New Year

  10. The skeletal one

    "We're all in Brexit now and none of us knew we had to pay however many billions to get out of it, did we? They didn't give us that information and we're out of it now." To give him some credit he appears to have been a brexiteer who has seen the error of his ways and is now a remainer! Obviously doesn't follow these things too closely as he seems to think we are out of the EU already. Not sure what it has got to do with referees and reviewing systems though
  11. Single greatest moments watching City

    Not forgetting the even later goal by Donnie Gillies which made it 2-2, before Jimmy Hill got the Sunderland score on the scoreboard!
  12. Tammy

    Agree with this. He has done extremely well to have played for the full England team, and deserved his chance. The Tammy conundrum is that he is a brilliant goal scorer/poacher in a Gert Muller/Jimmy Greaves/ Gary Lineker style BUT at the moment he offers little else, apart from the odd flash of pace and ad-libbing brilliance! But he has yet to develop any hold up play skills and can go missing when the service to him is average. Kodjia is a more complete attacking player (without any particular target man abilities) and his level would appear to be upper championship/lower premier, albeit he is 8/9 years older than Tammy. I really wish him well and he has a great attitude, but at the moment he is at the wrong club for a crucial season in his development. As an edit, please do not get me wrong, the ability to score goals regularly is the most sought after attributes in a footballer, but at the highest level there must be other qualities unless the player is an absolute goal machine, which Tammy clearly isn't at Swansea at the moment.
  13. Bristol City on BBC1 Football Focus (merged)

    He still "owes" Bristol a walk around in his underpants or nude (can't quite remember and really don't want to) as he said when he was a local HTV pundit that he would do that if Richard Dryden (who we sold to Southampton around 94/95) was still playing in the premiership by the end of that season, which he was, and did quite well for the Saints. Not particularly perturbed by what he said on FF as he has always been a footballing dinosaur, and I would actually have been more irritated if he had actually "got" what our club is all about. He is totally out of his depth in the modern game and it makes me wonder what he has got over the BBC that they still employ him...
  14. Stream for today

    Fantastic stream, no problems or advert pop-ups, brilliant picture. Was this one of the abroad subscription services (via Hull's official site)? Not forgetting a great comeback!
  15. Bristol Arena (Merged)

    Interesting article (similar ones appear in the Bristol Post and local Cardiff rag) about Peter Kaye refusing to play Cardiff Motorpoint on his stand-up tour as the Bristol arena will be much better (when built!!) Jason Manford also seems to be refusing to perform in the West Country until we have an arena. Basically any arena performers are (quite rightly from they and their promoters point of view) not able to bring their tour to this city because of the sheer incompetence of the Mayor. http://www.somersetlive.co.uk/whats-on/whats-on-news/peter-kay-wont-visiting-west-801090 The hapless Mayor Marv should be so embarrassed about these sort of comments, that you would think he would pull out all the stops to the bloody thing built asap, but I doubt if he is even aware of this sort of stuff. Maybe as a way of embarrassing and pressurising the Mayor/Council would be to insist that all promoters of arena tours actually naming a date at the Bristol Arena with a proviso of "subject to construction". I hear that Leeds had some kind of public pressure group to make sure that they got their arena which was later in arriving that most big cities(Bristol obviously being the exception!). Basically Marvyn is sticking up 2 fingers to all of Bristol and saying "bugger off to Cardiff, Birmingham and Bournemouth, we don't want you spending your money in this great City". Shame on him.
