  1. Watched all those plus Dennis Roberts, Captain and he finished in 1954.
  2. So we have 5 home games to play and we would still have to go away to the other 4 games to satisfy that clubs home fixtures. We still finish up playing 9 games that were planned anyway?
  3. David Burnside, played one game and was also Caretaker Manager.
  4. 1959 FA Cup at Ashton Gate v Blackpool missed due to laid up with flu. Saturday 24th January 1959 Blackpool’s FA Cup fourth round visit to Bristol City was the only time that Stanley Matthews would appear at Ashton Gate. An enormous crowd of 42,594 only a few hundred short of City’s all time record “gate” saw Bert Tindill’s first half goal cancelled out by Ray Charnley as the Robins held the Seasiders to a 1-1 draw. Bristol City flew to Blackpool for the replay four days later, losing 1-0 to Dave Durie’s second half goal.
  5. This is better, it has present map views and selection of different past maps side by side. View the whole country as well. https://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/side-by-side/#zoom=16&lat=51.44086&lon=-2.62207&layers=175&right=BingHyb
  6. They were sold as 'Lawrence Weston Tipped'
  7. The concept of the 'Peter Principle' is quite simple, the Coach, team squad and to some extent the management have all settled in to a cosy existence and are not concerned to get to the PL. Why, they have all reached their height of incompetance. See link; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_principle Whist some have improved in the past, they get transferred to a better club, but then also reach their level of incompetance. The present set up is just so, they can see they will be no good in the PL, so play to exist as they are being retained nex
  8. Some longer highlights from Youtube
  9. Taken this morning at Hotel near London with my Daughter who happens to be staying there as well. Happy Birthday Niclas.
  10. Plenty of 'Baby on Board' around, waiting for 'Wife on Plank'?
  11. This 'side by side' map seems to confirm it was/is a Club of some sort. https://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/side-by-side/#zoom=17&lat=51.4715&lon=-2.5665&layers=193&right=BingHyb
  12. Was it on the 29th April 1899 for the Southern League Championship final game at St Johns Lane, between Bristol City v Southampton? City lost 3.4 , being 2 up by halftime, Southampton scoring 4 in the second half with late consolation goal by City. Attendance was 16,000, but City had the stiff breeze behind them in the first half and was fighting against it in the second half. Langham, O'Brien and Caie scored for City and Chadwick, Wood[2] and MaClean for Southampton.
  13. During 1883 there was a Bristol Rover Bicycle Club from Stapleton, even before Eastville Rovers, so in 1899 they were named after a cycling club.
