  1. Great post but Fulham weren't in the top tier during our four year stay. Unless we played them, during that time, in the Anglo Scottish Cup.
  2. An inflatable meteorite hit the Earth many many years ago causing all the inflatable dinosaurs to perish.

    Martin Tyler summed it up perfectly. VAR would be better if it gave as much as it took away.
  4. I'm not sure if we are all single either...But I guess we all will be as soon as we start wearing that shirt!
  5. Although it was petulant and, I suppose, by the letter of the law it warranted a red card, it was such a weak flick of his foot backwards and I've seen many deliberate kicks of far greater power, go totally unpunished since. Massengo received a deliberate kick against Barnsley away and the player wasn't even spoken to. It was a nasty kick at his legs with no attempt whatsoever to get the ball. It's the same with high kicks near the head. Freeman was rightly sent off v Brentford in our first home game back in the Championship for a kick that was very close to the player's face, yet I am seeing kicks like that and some even higher just receiving a word from the ref now. Pretty sure I seen one from either WBA or Leeds last weekend and it just received a ticking off, yet it looked just as bad, if not worse than the Freeman one.
  6. I think wearing that shirt will protect me as it appears the virus won't want to come anywhere near me!
  7. I like it. Very tempted to get one. It's bold and definitely not conformist. A touch of the surreal about it. It's like Salvador Dali is still alive and progressed into kit design. It's a talking point.
  8. Also kept saying that we lost to Birmingham last SATURDAY!! And, as you state, just because WRDC had more possession in the first-half hour during which they mustered about one shot on target and a couple off target from long range, made it appear that City had been incredibly fortunate to survive that mullering and go two goals up (despite the fact that he'd earlier stated that City were a team who soak up pressure and hit on the counter and were always second best possession wise in all their matches). Yet he went on to say something along the lines that nothing ever surprises him about football.
  9. From what I have watched it goes to show how entertaining the football was back then. I remembered it as a dire encounter, but seeing it again now we were quite an exciting side, really getting the ball forward and attacking at pace. Jeez, if we seen football like this at home now we'd be going home ecstatic compared to the pedestrian play we watch now. Yet at the time I considered it dire!!
  10. Great game and I always think of that incident with Sutton giving away the pen and being sent off whenever we go two behind as an example of how things can rapidly change in a split second. Prior to that we were 2-0 down early on and not in the game. But then suddenly we were 2-0 down but now against ten men and with a penalty to take against an outfield player in goal. We instantly became the favourites especially when the penalty was converted. But credit to Derby, they went down fighting in a seven goal thriller. I think our first live televised league game at home was against Grimsby, where we won a dire contest 1-0 with a goal from Nicky Morgan iirc. Although, Scott Partridge rings a bell with that fixture.
  11. Brentford could hardly string 2 or 3 forward passes together in that first half. They've looked decidedly ordinary. Credit to Leeds United as their intensity and fluid passing have definitely unsettled the home team. Wouldn't it be great if we could unsettle visitors to Ashton Gate. Instead, the majority of times, we make opponents feel right at home!
  12. No because he never got the chance. Once she had @Rudolf Hucker's phone number in her possession she lost interest in all other male attention.
  13. I don't claim to be itk but someone told me that the fee for Brownhill was £9M rising to £12M if he plays against Arsenal today. (£11M if he's an unused substitute.) Burnley have pulled a fast one.
  14. Here is a video made today by the City media team of the Frame Footballers. https://www.facebook.com/343596205704665/posts/3018613218202937/?vh=e
  15. I'd also now like to thank Phantom on here who had been getting in touch with his contacts to get more publicity for the Frame Football and it appears to be coming up trumps. Hats off to everyone. Well done.
  16. Whilst I have your attention, Frame Football is for children with cerebral palsy who use frames to aid their mobility. If anyone knows a child who has CP and uses a frame and wants to play football they can contact Nick Dewfall via the Bristol Frame Football Facebook or Twitter pages.
  17. Several months ago I reported on here about how the Frame Footballers of Bristol had had their funding stopped by the FA primarily because they weren't involved in competitions, particularly international competitions, from which the FA could derive kudos. The organiser, Nick Dewfall of 2nd Chance FC, stated that it was a triumph in itself to get these children with walking difficulties to turn up, let alone play in competitions. I am chuffed to inform you, that Bristol City have stepped in and have attended some of the sessions and provided kit etc. The media team from City will be at the Frame Football tomorrow to help with giving this noble cause some publicity. So well done to Sam, the City disability development officer, and thanks to all those at Bristol City for stepping in when the FA stopped their funding.
  18. This is nothing compared to Hörður Magnússon he went from Juventus to BRISTOL CITY!!!
  19. Yes, I've also done that too fairly regularly. Thankfully, I don't think its happened to the same poster more than once otherwise I'd be down as a stalker too!
  20. Sometimes when I'm scrolling down with my finger on my tablet my digit accidentally touches the report post icon thingy and it goes a different colour. But I haven't reported a single post (intentionally) in my entire time on here. Although you moderators possibly have me down as a serial reporter of posts who also never gives a reason why he has done so.
  21. If he scores the goals that get us promotion this season, or even next, it doesn't matter if his resell value drops considerably over the duration of his contract. He would have done what he was evidently brought in to do. His stay at the club would then prove to have been of massive value considerably dwarfing the loss we'd make selling him on in his, by then, very early thirties.
  22. Good on Ben Stokes. Why should any spectator have the right to shout abuse at a player then turn in to a snowflake when he gets some of it back.
  23. Good point. And appropriate that it comes from someone who also is referred to by their full name almost as if it was a double-barrelled surname. Rudolf or just Hucker would never do you justice but Rudolf Hucker really incapsulates the essence of your personality and many, many conquests.
  24. The last time we were on national terrestrial tv on a Sunday was v West Ham in the 4th Round of the cup in 2015. The match was selected as Doncaster Rovers or Bristol City at home to the Premier League team, so we had first to dispose of Donny in a replay to get our tv date. We did so by 2-0. So this bodes well for the Shrewsbury replay (albeit the Doncaster replay was at home).
