    Known throughout Football as "the Club that always bottles it"

    We won both the Anglo Scottish Cup and the Welsh Cup. There’s a (somewhat theoretical) argument that we are the only club that could claim to be Champions of Britain

    Matty Taylor

    I hope the rejuvenated fit MT who scored last night can keep this up. ...... "Feed the snake and he will score, feed the snake and he will score!" Man City fans used to sing about Goater "feed the goat and he will score!" ....... but "feed the snake and he will score" has a good ring to it

    Rovers or Yeovil?

    I considered this in 1982. I felt (assuming there was no Phoenix) that I couldn’t follow any team..... there’d be a hole in my life.

    Frankie's distribution

    I started a post a few weeks ago when Frankie’s distribution was top notch. My view is that if his distribution was consistently good that he would be a Premiership quality keeper. His shot stopping is right up there with the best. Against Barnsley his distribution wasn’t at his best, against Brentford it was poor.

    Liam Walsh

    I thought that he showed some good touches and if one had to point to (comparative) positives from the match, he showed real potential. Yes, he’s not got the experience or nouse of Pack/Smith but I do see him as having a decent career in the Championship. It’s appreciated that the team as a whole played poorly and the midfield was outclassed by the opposition. I thought that the problem was that most 50:50 challenges were won by Brentford. Would I start him against Millwall? No. But he’s got a decent future- hopefully here.

    Positives from Yorkshire

    Positive is that Flint is back for the next match- Barnsley no 19 won virtually everything in the air. Both our goals were superbly taken . A big positive for me. if we are in the same division as Barnsley next season, we should know we are a better team.

    Season Tickets Countdown

    Yes - using my land line and my mobile - constant redial for 30 mins.

    Season Tickets Countdown

    I understood that one could only change seats today by buying before the deadline and then phoning the club to swap. This is what I did. I paid full price for the new (more expensive) seat with a promise that I’d be refunded the difference.

    Season Tickets Countdown

    I took Monday off work as Annual Leave in order to transfer my son’s season ticket in the Dolman to W14 which is central Lower Lansdown. Then booked today as leave because of the change of mind from the club. 30 minutes of non stop dialling using both landline and mobile.... but when I got through staff were helpful. Sorted, with my son in the row in front a few seats to the side. i do very much feel for those who can’t renew for financial reasons and respect those who don’t want to renew on a point of principle. I will attempt to assuage my conscience by making a contribution to the crowd funding. The problem I faced is that watching and supporting Bristol City is in my blood, like a religion. I’ve supported since 1961 through good times with good owners and bad ones. Yes, the club’s made a mistake in not appreciating the difference between fans and clients. Hopefully it will learn....and I hope that those who haven’t renewed are able to do so before we are promoted. I’m off to Barnsley tomorrow and hope we can make those “pray offs” and make history by actually succeeding. Always an optimist!

    Frankie Fielding

    Didn’t have much to do, however I thought that he was excellent in his distribution today. Kicks were accurate; he threw the ball out for a player to run on to; he caught the ball well and commanded his area. its good to see such an improvement. Keep it up!!!

    Renewed or not renewed. Please post here

    I didn’t see any need to wait. I have good seats and don’t want to lose them. Some years ago I had seats over the half way line in the old Williams stand. When Premier (corporate or whatever it was called) seating was introduced, I had to move and suffered with a far inferior view. I’m happy with my seats in the Lower Lansdown and will always renew them. I respect the fact that many posters on here are angry at the new pricing. Maybe I’m too philosophical, but in terms of pleasures in life, watching Bristol City is right up there.

    Renewed or not renewed. Please post here

    Prices have gone up, but I’ve renewed for 3 of us.

    Nothing to see here, just another Engvall thread

    In this country we only play with 11 players!

    Weather (Merged)

    I can’t even get off my drive with 2 foot of snow in parts. Despite living on what is normally a busy road, only 4x4s and emergency vehicles are using it. last night I received a message that Ashton Park School wasn’t available due to the weather, that’s despite my paying £160 for an annual parking season ticket. No way will I even attempt to get to the ground, I wonder whether the club has decided that with Sheff Wed playing midweek they might have less energy, plus they aren’t on form (....same as us then). Its a shame to not to be able to sit in my usual seat.... but if we win then I won’t be so upset. I do feel that if the club felt that there was an advantage in calling the game off, that would have happened. Presumably they feel we can maximise the chances of those points..... a case of small margins and all that Enjoy the match those who are going.... but please, pretty please City, I want 3 points today. COYR !

    Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    Yes I stand corrected. It was Chichester. My memory tells me that my next match was against Dartford in the second round. We won 8-2. my third match was in the League against Notts County. We won that match 6-0 scoring all our goals in the first half.... so at the end I commented on the lack of goals. Happy days
