  1. Officially known as Londonderry, signage around the city tends to show both names.
  2. Kopped an eyeful there
  3. Not non stop games but most of the teams have large enough squads inc under 23s and fringe players to ring the changes and have two games a week to finish this season, whenever that will be. Once that is sorted then and only then should we be looking at 20/21 season.
  4. Complete this season whenever and then next season whenever it starts only play each team once . Gate takings to be split 70:30 (this is double the normal FA cup split for the away club and may actually benefit the smaller club ). Games to be randomly selected but no more than half the possible games at home, and any clashes re local teams playing same day eg Liverpool, Everton , City, Rovers then one of the teams has to play their game away.
  5. Ipswich, Queensland. It is also home to the Workshops rail museum

    Didn’t realise he’d joined BCFC!
  7. Unfortunately viruses don’t tend to discriminate between age, yes older people may be more likely to get it but it certainly and unfortunately doesn’t mean the young aren’t vulnerable. Maybe this, and the death of the 37 year old British diplomat in Budapest, will be the wake up call for some of the under 40s who think they are invincible.

    Listening to Joe Worrall (Nottingham Forest) reading ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar ‘ on TALKSPORT this am , got me thinking about our players and the BCFC staff . Which book would you like to hear read? and by which of our players/staff?.
  9. I understood where there were two parents at home and only one was designated a key worker , that the children should stay at home. Some people can’t get any work done and aren’t getting paid either.
  10. R Not a massive Beatles fan, our school prize giving was held at the cinema and we all watched Yellow Submarine, I wasn’t impressed , but a Day in The Life ......
  11. She lived opposite where I used to work, in Eltham SE London, and I would often see her out and about. WIth her striking appearance she certainly couldn't walk around without being instantly recognised.
  12. Do you think the summer concerts planned for Ashton Gate this summer, The Killers etc will be cancelled/postponed? The BristolHarbour festival scheduled for July has been cancelled and the Ashton Gate concerts were scheduled for June. I would expect the club to make an announcement sooner rather than later, because if we do get a lull in this terrible virus I suspect the resumption of football would take priority over the concerts.
  13. Nice to see that Michael Eavis is donating all the latex gloves hand sanitiser etc that would have been used at Glastonbury https://www.bristolpost.co.uk/whats3980005https://www.bristolpost.co.uk/whats-on/whats-on-news/glastonbury-festival-coronavirus-police-donation-3980005
  14. It looks as though they would prefer a 20% cut rather than a 50% deferment
  15. Birmingham City have become the first championship club to announce a pay cut of players wages 50% for those earning over £6k a week for four months, payable back in stages when the season resumes. Don’t know how many of our players would fall in this category if City followed on a similar basis. Like the rugby I can see this being picked up by other Championship and higher end League 1 clubs.
  16. The statement read 25% of annual salary which I presume excluded any bonuses as they weren’t mentioned and also as there are no games there are no bonuses. So in effect the reduction on players earnings could be greater than 25%
  17. We’ve got the song connection on the non-football chat so why not a football connection game, linking players, clubs and countries. We’re on p172 for the songs , I wonder how many pages we would get before the game is over (duplicate name) . Your start is of course Bristol City
  18. Bristol Bears also taking a 25% pay cut. I wonder if the Bristol City players will follow suit, or are their contract terms different?
  19. As the TALKSPORT Wales & West reporter who happens to be a City fan said, he would have taken him down at Ashton Gate no problem.
  20. Not sure we would get a refund this year as Club would say it’s outside their control and there are still salaries and other costs to be met. Listening to Karl Robinson the other day. He was saying Oxford had lost £500,000 on the MK Dons and Portsmouth games not being played so imagine what our losses could be.
  21. I was in ASDA this morning buying a newspaper. Clear signs saying max of 3 of any one item. A women puts 12 cans of potatoes in her trolley, I told her limit was 3 of any item but she just ignored me and carried on adding another 4 cans. Everyone was looking at her and her partner/husband was looking slightly embarrassed. Great when she got to the till and they would only sell her the 3 tins.
  22. Well as Ireland have just announced the shut down of their pubs apparently in part due to the irresponsible behaviour of some, and worries about St Patrick’s day on 17th March how long before he won’t be able to stay in Spoons?
  23. Agreed, If we don’t want him, why shouldn’t he get a signing on fee? Regarded as a joke signing by many because of where he came from, he has more than repaid his fee. Don’t think we have really used him as much as we could/should have , but I thank him for those moments and at least he had his own song.

    I would have liked KP come on for Massengo. Although as LJ singled Massengo out for praise(I thought he was a bit lightweight at times) unlikely to have been subbed.
