  1. I confess also. Brings a smile to my face during all this COVID stuff.
  2. Was there also. There was only about 1500 City there but we made a hell of a racket in that old wooden stand. Mate of mine took crutches down on the train (circa 150 of us). Feigned an injury! They kept playing bowls as we rampaged across the park. Really funny moment. Mate on crutches seemed to keep up with us all quite well! Good day out was that. Seems a long time ago now but away days were always eventful in the 80s.
  3. I'm quite liking the look of Chris Martin (great signing) and Naki Wells up front. Naki will want to play off him IMO. Compared to the dross from Johnson, we are looking a handful up front again so far this season. Exciting times ahead hopefully?
  4. Said by many, not just me, Johnson was full of bull*shit, should have been gone much quicker. To sum him up, “showed a lot of promise but never quite delivered”. The club now moves on .........
  5. I was there that day and Cardiff had a good few turnout for this game. Never really liked Cardiff back then as they were well known for picking on scarfers etc. Cardiff ripped the old turnstiles up post match as there was a good few of us outside the gates waiting for them. There was a "no mans land" created where no Cardiff would step across as they would have got mullered by City, and no City would step across and confront Cardiff as they were well tooled up with all sorts (not just bricks from the turnstiles). When they were finally let out, the OB had a busy hour..... Just another no
  6. You are probably right IMO. The club appears rotten to the core with false info/smear campaigns currently. Don’t believe most of the sh*te that comes out nowadays. Chris Hughton was a great opportunity missed. Even if his view was a “clear out” of sorts (which is probably right), the fact remains that they went with the cheap option and against there initial press briefings and promises.
  7. Good read. Enjoyed it with some good stories. The Wolves v City post Brum M5 incident was a close shave as when all there coaches pulled into the service on the way home from Cardiff, (loads of them) and they all came across that bridge at us, we were well outnumbered. Quick get away that day in my Ford Capril.
  8. Correct I believe, I was told precisely as per your comment above by someone who had a look into this financial setup. The Lansdowns are quite astute with the financials, so the club (BCFC) and the ground are in effect separate entities. Which is why BCFC (the club) has become a bit of a “play toy” IMO. Explains quite a few things recently including the new appointment when you try to understand the politics behind the scenes, based on what we are told. Not the club I once knew. Time to take a break from BCFC for me until we get our club back. I have never liked being treated as a
  9. Joke club nowadays unfortunately.
  10. Heard the interview. Ashton was found out by Twentyman. BCFC has become a joke of a club. How can Holden be the “stand out candidate”? Quite frankly, feeling p*ssed off with BCFC nowadays and will be giving it all a break until this **** Ashton is gone. Lying b*stard! Huge opportunity missed by this shambolic outfit. Relegation fight next season, with Holden gone by Xmas. Hopefully Ashton also.
  11. Agree. Just goes to show how disconnected the club is with the fans nowadays. Awful mess IMO.
  12. Boils my piss what is going on with this club. Complete shambles of a process to recruit a new manager. Complete farce of a biz IMO. Fans taken as muppets.
  13. Your assumptions do not stack up, so why did they sack Johnson so quickly?? With no replacement to come in, no final 3, not even a wish list it appears. A complete shambles of a selection process IMO. Holden will be on a hiding to nothing.
  14. It is well known that Lansdown and Ashton like YES men. They don’t give two sh*ts what the fans think about this. We are just punters nowadays. All a bit predictable IMO especially when this is a pivotal decision for the future of the club.
  15. I will put a bet on Burnley for relegation next season if Johnson is manager. Can’t see it though.
