  1. He held all the cards, so im not suprised in the slightest. Wanted by a european giant. Already played for england. Last year of his contract. Chelsea worried they will lose him. Chelsea unable to replace him if he does leave due to transfer ban. In fairness to the lad i honestly believe he wanted to leave for regular football so must of had some assurance that he will play more this season under lampard.
  2. My point was that the fans are fickle. ZZ is considered one of their greatest players of all time and is worshiped by the fans yet GB is frequently booed despite arguably achieving more on the pitch. Obviously there is more too it than that, ZZ is the better player...but you do have to wonder what else GB can do (on the pitch) to ever win them over. Maybe a spectacular goal in the crown jewel final.....
  3. They sure are- At one point they were booing ronaldo! Imagine having one of the top two players in the world (possibly of all time) who is regularly winning you trophies... And you boo him as he had a lean month! Mental. I don't know if it's true but i read on a forum today that bale actually has better goals, asists and trophies won stats at real than zidane did as a player.
  4. His goals hide his limitations. He was probably at fault for 5-6 goals a season at our place but he would score 7. At boro the goals dried up so the fan were less forgiving. He'd head low flying aircraft if it came near his goal but there is no guarantee which direction it will go in once he does. Loves a long ball but can look like bambi on ice with the ball at his feet or when quick players are running at him. All action- puts his body on the line every game. Loves to be the hero. Miserable sod. Strange thing to say about a centre half, but get him scoring again (wouldnt put it past colin) and it could be a decent buy as hes a confidence player imo. Don't and he will warm the subs bench. Also for what it's worth he was shite first year for us so suprised boro don't want to give him one more go.
  5. Wolves. We have only beaten them 5 times since 1990 - All of which were at home. And we haven't won at their place since the 1930s!
  6. To the tune of the animals went in two by two/when johnny comes marching home. He wanted to be a ciderhead- Kalas! Kalas! An easy choice for me he said- Kalas! kalas! Fed up with being a training cone, He made Ashton Gate his home. Tomas kalas! Citys twentytwo!
  7. They are bitter as they stood by Johnson whilst on an 8 game losing streak (sound familiar?), they then improved climbing the table and got to the paint pot final at wembley. Then he left. In their eyes they stood by him during the bad and he legged it as soon as it started to get slightly good. To make matters worse they then had the guy they lauded as the brains behind the promotion (despite heckingbottom insisting it was a lot to do with Johnson) jumping ship to leeds. To be fair id be pretty ******* bitter too!
  8. Not that it's really an excuse... But you can get a one star rating for not having the right paper work. I'm not saying this is why they got one star mind.
  9. My son was born on the day of the second leg of the league cup semi final. Hes lucky we didn’t win as his christian names would be steele Smith flint wright Magnússon paterson walsh brownhill pack Bryan Reid baker Diedhiou Taylor kent Johnson Ashton gate thatchers gold BS3 get the **** in... If we had. I'm sure the mrs would have grown to love it. On a more serious note anything blue and white is pretty much band in my house and there are robins in various forms all around the house. I also nearly didnt upgrade to sky q as i was worried about losing my highlights of the manchester united game....
  10. @Hartcliffe red has a great set up with his seat in his back garden.
  11. For me club legends have to either have done something that is astounding like Atyeo or they have to be a player that a younger generation idolise and will grow up still believing they were one of the best players they have ever seen wear the shirt. This is then passed on to future generations (for example i didn’t see Gow play but consider him a legend- i take this from how highly people still rate him). To me legends are made on the play ground where kids imitate and worship them. Imagine how many pretended to drop the shoulder, cut inside and smash the ball into Mildenhalls top corner from 25 yards? Would i call JET a legend? - debatable. But would a 13 year kid who was watching him that day call him one when they reach my age? - there is every chance... A screamer against the Gas, a 1 in 2 ratio of goals or asists and part of the double winning team. My point being that every generation will have players they consider legends that previous generations might scoff at as they will never compare in their eyes to players they watched in their youth.
  12. We know how we are trying to operate as a club. We now have to trust the scouting and management teams to keep producing. I've said it previously about the craving for an "established 20 goal a season striker". Whilst it would be nice to go out and buy one, these type of players are rare. However our last three 20 plus goal scorers have been a bloke from France no one had heard of, a loanee with no first team experience and a converted midfielder who most would of been happy to let go before the season had started. It's not about getting big names and spending big. It's about getting the right players- Something City have got right for the last couple of years. If brownhill goes (hopefully he doesn't) then hopefully it will be another flint/webster situation.
  13. It's almost a catch 22 situation though. Whilst the standard (and even the viewing figures) at present probably doesn't merit the amount it gets...Without the exposure it will never improve. Like most things it comes down to money - money mostly comes from advertising revenue and Tv. Why wouldnt tv or advertising companies that have paid for it not try to give it exposure? The mens game had nearly 100 years head start. Male bigwigs have also held the womens game back at numerous times through history stretching back to actually banning it after the first world war. Would it really hurt to help it grow for a change? Like everything else it's perfectly avoidable if you want it to be. I manage to when i want to.
  14. On the plus side we don't have to deal with obnoxious Villa fans for another season.
  15. A few years back i went to vegas to watch some of my friends get married. It was booked a year in advance and i was going to be there FA Cup final weekend. So i did the right thing and informed them that if (by some miracle) Bristol City were in the final... My plans would change and unfortunately id arrive the day after the wedding. To this day they still think i was joking.
