  1. I'm still required to work from the office until the end of this week, and will be walking from the town centre to Southville. If anybody is self-isolating/working from home/can't make it out, feel free to let me know. I'm happy to pick anything up and drop it off after work - between 6.30-7.30pm - to anyone in Bedminster/Southville who may need it.
  2. Was good fun, came away with a prize too! Anyone know how much was raised?
  3. Somehow managed to get England v Croatia and both Semis. Let's hope England manage to get there...
  4. Absolute long shot, but wondering if anyone is leaving Bristol last minute on Tuesday for the Shrewsbury game? Really fancy it but can’t get work off so would just need to shift hours to earlier & jump in a car with someone. Obviously would cover petrol money. Any leaving may be too early anyway, but thought I’d throw it out there in case something suits. ️
  5. Reads to me that GMcG is backtracking through fear of losing some privilege access to the club. No way is there truth in both of these stories - either the original one was something blown out of proportion and false, or this one is in an attempt to sweeten up City into getting back in their good books.
  6. To be fair, their performances have been lacking for over a season. I think it's as much about their style of play as it is their results. Even when they do win games, they're closer than they should be and they're pretty uninspiring. I think a better manager will push them closer to the top two. Not surprised by the dismissal to be honest. Stendel leaving Barnsley on the other hand. I also thought Gomes may have been a bit hard done by - they looked relatively decent last week.
  7. Pretty embarrassed that so many people in this day & age still dismiss mental health problems, particularly those of men who bravely open up in an inherently masculine environment. I pray so desperately that nobody in your family or friendship circle ever suffer, because if they do & were to see how questionable some of you are about the legitimacy of people's problems, I imagine they'd never wish to open up to you. Approximately 12 men and 6 women a day in the UK lose their lives to suicide. It's the biggest killer of men between 18 & 40. And still people don't take it seriou
  8. I find it baffling the amount of people saying that because Reid has only done it once in the Championship we shouldn't sign him. When Tammy had a good season, everyone wanted him to stay. Imagine if we were offered Pukki or McBurnie? Reid has only had one season in the Championship as a striker, after some hard work from both him and LJ, and he was only 24 so unsurprisingly wasn't the finished article before that. People expect 20 goal a season strikers from 18-19-20 and that just isn't that common. And during that year with us, he was unplayable at times. He wasn't utilised correctly by
  9. A lot of people, and I don't just mean AshtonGreat so this is by no means a dig, find it very difficult to separate how us as fans feel and how players feel. Ultimately, if you were offered 3x your wages (in Bobby Reid's case, 4x for example), plus a massive signing on lump sum bonus, and effectively a promotion (working at a more respected company with better opportunities), 99% of people wouldn't think twice. They may see if their current employer could match, or at least compete with, it; but not much more than that. Unfortunately, fans seem to think that there should be some kind of i
  10. I have a horrible feeling this thread will come back to bite us. Lots of people fancying us, I'd love to think it but I just can't bring myself to say or believe it Leeds, Fulham, Brentford Reading, Millwall, Wigan
  11. Apologies if this has been said as I read a lot of the thread but not quite all. Unfortunately, we in Bristol especially - I would say - are painting a lot of the country with our city's wonderful progressive and liberal brush. Bristol is one of a handful of cities in the country where there's a pretty strong and open gay community, and one that is generally widely accepted amongst the rest of the city. Unfortunately, this isn't always the case, particularly - I hate to say it - in some of the more working class, northern towns and cities in the country. This is by no means a dig at anybody in
  12. My first game was Port Vale at home, 0-0 in the 94/95 season. Don't remember much as I was only 2 and a half, but have the programme somewhere. My uncle took me who was an ST holder at the time. Went on and off for about 8 years when my uncle and grandpa would take me (don't remember a lot - I think the cider round these parts has scrambled most of my memories of before I was about 8 for some reason...), before going for most home games in the Brighton play off final season, and then getting my first season ticket in 04/05. Never looked back.
  13. Apologies if this has already been shared, but saw it on twitter today and haven't seen a forum post on it AFAIA https://www.coachesvoice.com/lee-johnson-bristol-city-oldham-athletic/ Very interesting read, particularly the line presumably about Tomlin's activities behind the scenes. Not the first time he's been on Coaches' Voice btw, he also had a video on there a while ago when he talked about his tactics vs Man United, which was an interesting watch for those who haven't seen it.
  14. Hey fellow reds, Hope you're all in good spirits after our recent run despite yesterday's disappointing end. I don't wanna take up too much of your time, but at the end of the month, I'm running London Marathon for Kidney Research UK. I'm sure most, if not all, of you are aware of the amazing things they do and may have even seen them first hand, but if you have a few minutes to spare, I'd really appreciate it if you could take the time to read my story about why I personally am doing it: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-display/showROFundraiserPage?userUrl=BenWilliamsButt&
