  1. For me, the game will be won and lost in the midfield. If we sit back at home (again), we are done for. If we dictate and press them via midfield, we have a chance. They are defo beatable IMO.
  2. Can’t see many plastics going. 200 - 300 tops.
  3. Personally I hope Leeds go up. Proper old skool football club. Well backed by passionate fans. It is what the Prem needs. Having worked in Yorkshire on several occasions, it has to be said that you don’t get many “plastics” at Elland road. Proper football fans in my experience. Backed by a brilliant coach in Bielsa, they play attractive football also. Good luck to them. The old AG was a similar ground until the new AG ground came along. But that’s progress apparently.
  4. The City players have not understood Johnson’s team talks for 4 years, so no chance of Luke A understanding him!!!!
  5. Stick um in the Lansdown. It is like a library in that stand.
  6. Remember that. Think the start was held up whilst the lad was taken care off. Bloody long time ago that! Old Div 2 days I think?
  7. I was doing a lot of football (home and away) for quite a few years in the 80s and 90s. And wherever I went, Little Ronnie was always there. He would beg, borrow, hitch hike, whatever, to make sure he got to every City game - he had a great skill at bringing Billy Bollox “Know It All” characters back down to reality - with an almighty punchline!!! Had us all laughing on many an occasion. Some great characters in the 80s & 90s.
  8. Tottenham ripped up the away end that night. They brought a load down to Bristol and and caused havoc outside. Big mob!
  9. Just reading through these posts makes you realise what an apprenticeship/journey Ashton Gate was for many of us. I also started out in the East End as a young kid who was skint, the old man then bought me a season ticket when in the old 1st Div for the Dolman. Was then addicted to Bristol City. He got fed up when we got relegated from Div 1, Div 2, etc, so I then went in the Parkend for a year or two until I nearly died of pneumonia one game. It used to get bloody wet and when it was backed by a Force 9 gale from the East End/Dundry hills direction, it was bloody wet and freezing cold. Met the legendary Ricky M from Bath (also now passed - RIP Ricky) in there a few times (too many stories to tell on here about Ricky who was a well known character down AG) and then ended up in B Block Dolman for many years with him watching some great City teams. Used to love how Dolman B Block would quietly fill up prior to kickoff, the away fans would be singing there songs thinking “where are there lads?”. At 2.59pm, the whole of Dolman B Block would stand up in unison and sing “Baaaristol”. Quite often, the look on the away fans faces was one of white fear when they realised what was waiting for them post match. Great thing about Dolman B Block is you always had a great view of the Parkend when it kicked off! They were brilliant days - always remember how quite often the Parkend would start a song, followed by the Dolman, then followed by the East End & Enclosure. On a big game, quite literally the whole ground would be singing. Makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up just thinking about it here in 2020. Loved the old ground!
  10. “Tools of the trade” in the back also?
  11. No soft underbelly IMO. But tactically lacking a Plan B when Plan A does not work at home. Tonights game is massive. Hoping the shackles are off and we play positively tonight. If we sit back, we are done for. Derby are on a very good run currently so difficult game and a draw will not be the end of the world.
  12. The Masonic on North Street is a quality pub. One of my favourites. Couple times a season, we usually try to do the North Street pub crawl from the ground. A real challenge if you are for it! So long as you don’t give it the big un, you will all be well received.
  13. POTD will be fine, I am doing the same. Fill the ******!!
  14. We are now talking about a line up to compete against anyone in the Championship. Well done Bristol City. There has been a lot of work behind the scenes to make this happen. We are defo going for it this season. Bring it on!!! Sounds too good to be true IMO.
