  1. Thanks for the reply RR - I just find it an interesting thing to look at whilst totally accepting that it's a completely set of circumstances - I like to see where perhaps we can pick points up, where points were lost despite the limitations of the methodology. Just a bit of fun if you prefer! That said, thanks to your input i feel that I've properly "made" it on OTIB now. Result!!!
  2. Might be interesting to some - just a basic and simplistic comparison between last season and this: Last season after 13 games we had 19pts but after winning game 14 we didn't pick up any points until a win at match 19. This season we are on 23pts so improvement there. In terms of the teams we have played compared to the results against those teams (or their equivalents e.g Luton are this year's Rotherham) last year, we are 2pts better off. However our record last year against the next 6 opponents reads as P6 W0 D4 L2 so surely an excellent opportunity to improve on last year, pick up more points and be in a good position approaching the halfway point of the season! Fingers crossed and here's to 3pts on Sunday!! COYR!
  3. Harsh - I thought he was pretty decent defensively today which was great to see as not that long ago some deemed him as completely lacking in that department IIRC
  4. I see they've been fined a massive £315,000 for breaching transfer rules over youngsters. That'll teach them!!! No transfer ban though. Does this mean Chelsea have a good chance with their appeal? Got to be honest - not massively clued up on it all - any more knowledgeable folk out there!
  5. Definitely this - I think on one or two occasions Hunt was trying to defend against 3 players!
  6. Not players but supporters!! We obviously hear fantastic stories of family loyalties handed down but who else came to the Bristol City "party" relatively "late" or relatively independently as it were! I wasn't that fussed about watching football while I was growing up in the 70's,80's and then working in the 90's. I enjoyed playing although I wasn't much cop. I went to a few games over the years, generally dependant on which mate I was going with ( and yes that included visits to Eastville!! ) but I wouldn't say in the early days at least I had any particular loyalties!! That said, as time went on, particularly in the late 90's I went to more City games as my City supporting mates were still about and I had come back from Uni and settled back here. I remember seeing City beating Bolton 2-1 in a rare victory in the championship of the 98/99 season? Penalty winner in front of the Atyeo and John Ward's last game I think? Needless to say, something clicked and i started keeping an eye out for results and news on the club and I finally took the plunge and got my first season ticket at the ripe old age of 29 for the 2000/2001 season as finances and work shifts allowed and here I still am!! So, who else arrived here in a bit of a "roundabout" way??!
  7. I remember watching Argentina v Cameroon in a packed common room at my Uni halls and the "ooos" as the first Cameroon player just failed to take out Caniggia (I think) quickly turning to massive cheers and the whole place going crazy when the second completely cleaned him out........ah, happy times!!
  8. It's that last sentence that fills me with absolute dread!!!
  9. Ha ha - let's all blame Pack - as a team we were poor today; crossing especially was poor from all over (apart from the one for the goal). It was almost as if the pressure of the "occasion" got to the team! Still in the mix! COYR!
  10. Well at least they can console themselves that they're getting cards made specially for them now!
