  1. Only got to sing it for one season unfortunately and quite a recent one too...but i did love : We love Bristol City, the only team in town. There used to be the rovers, but now they have gone down. They only needed one goal, they couldn't manage that. And now that they are non league... They have to mind the gap!
  2. Assuming its not us it's a difficult one... I don't like pulis so that rules out boro. After saturday i really hope derby don't go up. I don't like west broms treatment of moore. Leeds are... Well leeds. And villa are... Well... They are the new leeds.
  3. It's not that they should have put the ball out. It's that they actually motioned like they were going to and then played on. Bamford should get a ban too.
  4. I was wondering the other day how the club would handle away tickets if we went up - It would really annoy me if the regulars who have attended virtually all away games for years suddenly struggled to get tickets. I hope the club have thought about this.... but I won't be surprised if they haven't. On the pitch I think we would need to invest in at least 6 or 7 players to finish 17th. I'd like to think that we would try and carry on down the same sustainable route that we currently follow - But with the added bonus of being seen as a more attractive proposition to players. I certainly don't want to see us go shit or bust and blow huge amounts on average players a la Fulham.
  5. Same with the ones i know. One simply said something along the lines of imagine they throw the game and then liverpool won the league anyway. Personally if i ever so much as muttered that i wanted Bristol City to lose id pack it all in and save myself a lot of time, money and heartache. Couldnt give a damn about who wins the league if it aint us.
  6. I agree. And It's not the marginal decisions that are the problem. If last nights goal had stood the general opinion would have been "he was offside but it was so difficult to tell in real time". Whereas Azplilcuetas goal against cardiff the other week was an unbelievablely bad decision. If the officals were getting ones like that right then there would be less calls/need for VAR.
  7. Obviously i wouldnt want City to be robbed in any circumstances. But I can't help but feel VAR will eventually errode some of the emotional elements that are part of the reasons i love this simple game in the first place. I know it's daft - just how i feel.
  8. Bizzarely... I'm not sure i do. There's a part of football which allows me to feel robbed. To blame someone else Etc The same part of football allows me to laugh when things go our way. It also allows me to engage with other people who have a different opinion. Whilst i understand the need for VAR (especially with the money that is on the line) I'll miss that part of football when it's gone.
  9. In fairness to pep he has also been saying that the quad is impossible since about January. It's mental to think that liverpool or City could potentially end up on 95+ points and NOT win the league! As much as both teams upset/annoy people for whatever reasons... They are both incredible sides.
  10. The thing most people overlooked when they were all suggesting that manchester City could win all four trophies.... is that there is a really big chance liverpool could actually win the two biggest. Two cracking semi finals coming up.
  11. I did not know that. If that is the case i stand corrected. Perhaps the biggest difference is that media is global nowadays so you can see and then imitate everything!
  12. The total football of early 90s barca never scored 100 goals in a League season. The current barca team has only failed to score at least 100 league goals 3 times in the last decade and on the those 3 occasions they didn’t they managed 94, 98 and 99. The big questions are - is this because of messi? Or is it simply that he doesn't get wiped out by a 'leveller' in the opening 5 minutes? True, you don't see a vinnie jones smashing into a Steve Mcmahon to win an FA Cup anymore. So perhaps the number of goals scored by modern great players is always likely to be higher than those of the past. However - the skills and tricks of the modern game would destroy most defenders of the 60s/70s/80s. Look at the moment the Cruyff turn was first used... The defender Olsson doesn't have a clue where he is never mind Cruyff! Even if he had wanted to kick Cruyff off the ball he couldnt! This is a turn that is now used regularly by modern goalkeepers!! The modern game is hands down more athletic and more skillful. Obviously the arguement is that the likes of Best etc would learn and adapt these skills if they were part of the modern game but the truth is we just don't know. We can only compare what we see and what we know, and messi has far more skills and tricks up his sleeves than any of the great players of the past and the majority of the present. Add in his ridiculous statistics and you have the greatest attacking player of all time imo.
  13. God is this *** still here? I honestly can't understand why it baffles villa fans that we are pissed off that a criminally awarded penalty put them in the lead. Ah... Thats right i forgot. They definitely would have scored eventually because they had already missed some chances. Thats how football works right?
  14. I hate it when fans say things like 'we deserved to be ahead' or 'your goalkeeper kept you in it' to justify poor ref decisions. Well you werent in front and i'm pretty sure a goalkeepers job is to keep the ball out the net. It was 0-0 before the penalty was awarded - Regardless of what had gone before... It was 0-0. Either team could have gone on to win. Saves, missed chances and even wrongly disallowed goals are all irrelvant in that moment as it was 0-0. And in that moment the ref couldnt wait to point to the spot. Perhaps villa would have gone on to win comfortably or knick it late on. Perhaps villa would have got frustrated as they couldn't get it passed max lose their disipline and we go on to knick one in the last minute. Perhaps City would have made different subsitutions and the game would have gone a completely different way. We will never know because apprently the ref thought villa deserved to be ahead as jack grealish was out ill and they had missed a few chances. **** off.
