    Finally the real reason that the Luke's - Freeman and Ayling - had to go!
  2. crowd v palace

    They have just released over 200 tickets in block W4 of the Upper Tier Lansdown, got 2 tickets in row 6, looking forward to this as my season ticket is in the Dolman. They were £15 each for print at home. Before they released these there were only single tickets in the Lansdown, and a few at the very back of the Dolman that were not just singles.
  3. Achievement no 103:- Just after taking office he paid the then Chief Executive Nicola Yates a £200,000 golden handshake after juts 2 years in the job, and (No 104) the local BBC news this morning revealed that he paid off the most recent Chief Executive over £60,000 in "compensation" after she RESIGNED(!) from the job... http://www.bristolpost.co.uk/news/bristol-news/shock-bristol-city-council-chief-431096 The bloke is an utter disgrace. When I say he paid this money, of course I mean that we paid it.
  4. Here is the list of our hapless Mayor's achievements http://www.bristolpost.co.uk/news/bristol-news/bristol-mayor-marvin-rees-publishes-640182 Can anyone pick one that is actually an achievement worthy of the Mayor of Bristol and, at a rough guess, I would say that he had zero input into at least 95% of these wonderful things.
  5. He is an absolutely useless fraud (and I say that as a regular Labour voter who voted for Red Trousers at the mayoral election). He has a "vision" for the Cumberland Basin and yet he can't deliver a much needed arena that George had got through planning, and was basically ready to be built. The Arena was put back from 2018 to 2019 within weeks of him becoming Mayor last year, and then put back to 2020 as soon as 2017 arrived. Its farcical that Bristol does not have an arena, and that the good people of Bristol have to travel to places to Cardiff, Brum and even Bournemouth to see Arena shows , as well as costing the local economy something like £80,000 a week. He reckoned that the previous contractor was too expensive, so he's having a best value review. Of course, it will be much cheaper to build it 3 or 4 years down the line! Another gem was him taking credit for the Prince Street Bridge being re-opened, following "delays from the previous (Red Trousers) administration". What he didn't say was that it was delayed for longer under his regime than George's. Not that bridge repairing is something that any normal person would see as a mayoral issue anyway! His other "vision" is to get power boat racing back in Bristol Docks, yes I'm sure we would all prefer to see fatal crashes in the docks than the Strictly or X-Factor tours (probably not great examples! - how about the Manics or Beyoncé?) in a 12,000 state of the art concert arena . Just a thought, there was talk about SL overseeing an arena in Ashton Vale, does he still own that land?

    Just checked. Syria are banned from playing home matches in Syria, they have played these qualifiers in Malaysia.
  7. Happy 20th Birthday OTIB

    Another (in)famous former poster was Steve Brooker's stalker, was it Sarah B? Also Malone FM was always banging on about Pimms, not seen that from any other poster.

    By sheer coincidence he left around the same time as GJ left the club
  9. Happy 20th Birthday OTIB

    Yes, it was his Gran, and her user name was "GrannyJoy". IIRC she carried on posting on here for a little while after Lee left the club. It must have been tricky for her at times, especially after "that miss" away to Swindon, but nothing seemed to faze her.
  10. Happy 20th Birthday OTIB

    Yes he took a lot of stick on here, especially about his views on the academy at the time. But he was an absolute City fanatic, and a top bloke. Used to play football with him, around about the time of the promotion year 75/76 we both gave up playing so we could go to AG for most games. He went with a group of mates, I used to go with my mates (I would have been about 10 years younger than AY). By the time City got relegated through the leagues and were in Div 4, all of our respective mates had abandoned ship, so we used to go together and did quite a few interesting away trips as well (Hereford springs to mind when we were 92nd in the league and managed to win 3-1and basically started rising back up the leagues again). I'm guessing it was around 5/6 years ago that he left us. Cracking bloke and, yes, he was right about the academy! RIP Mike.

  13. OTIB Ongoing Quiz

    Don't think the 2nd player has been answered yet, was it Chris Garland?
  14. Lucky Man City

    The 1st minute of the 5 was held up due to incident surrounding the corner. Afobe's injury took over 1 minute to treat and was followed by the substitution so play was stopped for over 1 and half minutes for the injury and substitution. So we already have 2 and half minutes added on to the minimum of 5 (which, as was pointed out could be 5 mins and 59 seconds) and the goal was scored in 96 mins and 43 seconds. So even if the minimum 5 minutes was literally 5 minutes and 0 seconds the goal was scored with plenty of time left as the minimum after the 5 was announced would have been 7 and a half. The post goal celebrations just meant more time added on top of that. I am sure that some people do no understand the meaning of minimum!
  15. League Cup - City v Stoke (Merged)

    Happy enough with that
