  1. The way I took it was that LJ was annoyed at our naievity when not in possession of the ball ie. Players not back tracking, marking, doing all the basics to prevent the opposition. Attack wise he enjoyed us, but not when we didn't have the ball.
  2. Making a trip to Ashton Gate is all about entertainment, and that includes off the pitch as well as on the pitch. If we can increase the capacity of AG and keep fans coming in then that's got to be the ambition regardless of whether we make the premier league or not. Larger crowds make the whole day feel better, especially when the ref has a stinker and our fans are baying for blood! We need to make attending Ashton Gate attractive, so if we did make the Premier for one season and then we came down again but with a bigger capacity, we should look to have ticket prices at being a
  3. It's funny how we can have 30,000 people stood and dancing in every seat, in pitch blackness during take that, muse and spice girls concerts, and yet standing on the back row during a bright Saturday afternoon is deemed unsafe (and that's with the fluorescent lights on as well) !
  4. It's worrying to think that yet again our two first choice midfielders are Pack and Brownhill? What's our options if one of them gets injured, suspended or in need of a rest? This isn't a new thing, we pretty much went through the whole of last season pinning our hopes on Korey coming back, and within a couple of games he was shagged again! We really need to put sentiment to one side and bring in somebody who is similar to Korey - but who that is? I've got no idea!
  5. I must say, when the evening got darker and the only lights were from the stage, the concert got better! The club really should look to turn off the fluorescent lighting in the stands when we have night games, it was so much better.
  6. Maybe a little simplistic from me, but why can't we just carry over our balance into next season? You don't Tesco or Costa rewards saying you have to spend them by the end of May, so why are City doing it? If a season ticket holder hasn't renewed, then sure, give them a deadline, but for everyone else, just allow it to continue - or am I missing something here?
  7. We've got to go for the jugular straight away. Any psychological advantage we can gain over Derby and Boro, we've got to take. Imagine we go one or two up within 15minutes of the start, and Derby & Boro are both nil nil, the pressure for them to score would be immense.
  8. Kevin Phillips and Teddy Sheringham both seems to go on forever !
  9. With regards to the pitch width, are we allowed to make it wider mid season, or do you have to keep it the same dimensions for the entire season?
  10. ...but have they? Why don't they use the formation date of Bedminster which is even older??!
  11. Overall I'm not disappointed. It could have been a real disaster, but I like it. One thing that's bugging me is the words Bristol and City don't seem to follow the curve of the circle!
  12. Quite surprised that nobody has mentioned Yannick Bolaise
  13. Why isn't 1887 our birth year? That's when one of our founding clubs (bedminster/southville fc) was formed wasn't it?
  14. Shouldn't the date go back to 1887 with the formation of Bedminster\Southville FC which are part of our history?
  15. One of the consistent themes that we keep hearing, is that the club cannot compete with other clubs that have parachute payments, therefore our approach should be to try and do whatever is possible to get promotion i.e. employ ugly football using Warnocks, Dyche or Sam Allardyces of this World. Accept that we're going to get relegated the following season, and then using the parachute payments build for the future. You never know, with someone like Sam Allardyce in charge we may even stay up! The overarching question has to be, how badly do we want Premier League football, and s
  16. Think Diedhiou really needs to work on his timing some what. I noticed it against Preston, he either jumped too early or too late and ends up either heading the ball up in the air or completely messing it up. Weirdly, I've seen him score some cracking goals with his head using plenty of neck muscle to divert the ball, but at the moment he's all over the place. The OG that Millwall scored today, I'm pretty sure that the ball was behind Diedhiou when the Millwall defender touched it, he basically didn't time his run very well.
  17. Agreed, where's the 1894 option? Bristol South End and Bedminster form an important part of our history and shouldn't be overlooked.
  18. How about that penalty they got given last season when their player was tripped OUTSIDE the penalty box. He wasn't complaining then!
  19. I seriously cannot read any of the sponsorship writing except on the goalies kit !
  20. ...and so history repeats itself once again. Rovers fans not content with making up their own nickname decide to adopt "gas heads", and now they're trying to muscle in on "Gas logic" - come on chaps, stop relying on us to be original for you.
  21. That Kodjia vs Taylor comment reminds me of the time hat Rovers player challenge himself to Andy Cole....was it John Taylor??
  22. So let me get this right... The Gash paid £2,301000 for 100% of the Memorial Stadium, and tried to sell it on for £20,000000 - Yeh right, of course there's no shady business going on right there! As others have alluded to, the stadium will always be the golden egg that you protect at all costs, and yet somehow it how it finds its way into the Rovers hands with surprisingly (cheap) ease.
  23. More sensationalism... Bristol Bus found on moon time
