  1. Great to have cam pring in the team and performing well. Having a good academy player coming through... You can't beat it. 

    Word of warning though, against Swansea he was absolutely knackered in first half and genuinely looked like a left back being asked to play left midfield. 

    IMO start and play him left back. A good start to his bcfc career though 👍

    Thought Southampton had to close that academy in bath down?

    They still play matches there on Saturday. Not sure if it's running in the week.

    Another one we've missed out on...

    WHAT ARE WE DOING???

    GO GET IM STEVE.

    Pay as you play contract probably would have sealed it.

    Not missing out on them at all. Southampton have academies in Bristol and Weston. They play matches in Bath. 

    Cardiff also have a academy in yate. 

    I have 3 of my players from my u9's team signed with Southampton. Been with them since they were 6. 

    If you ask a parent who do you want to sign for city or Southampton.... Its a no brainer. Southampton have a second to none reputation and set up in youth football.

    Obviously not just him but Jordan Henderson is a real class act.

    The cynical side of me says Jordan Henderson is leading this as he clearly can see the bigger debate of salary wage cap on the horizon hence let's be seen doing this now to fend of that argument.

    Has anyone ever notice the City fan in Mike Bassett England manager (22 mins in)? 

    How do I know he's a City fan? He's wearing the green and black 2002 away shirt and the dead give away, he's shown holding his head in his hands!

    My dad! I was sat next to him but didn't get my two seconds of fame. 

    This was last game at Wembley before it was knocked down for rebuild. Lost 1-0 Germany.

  6. 3 from 5. Puts teams on a even keel then. Some big squads with big budgets can gain advantage by naming 9 internationals on the bench. 

    Also got to be better for players who were sat on bench to play reserve / u23 match rather than sat playing no minutes.

  7. I have renewed on the basis I didn't want my old man going alone and the joy it brings him seeing his grandkids watching game with him. 

    Personally I've not missed it one bit and I look at this team and see no connection what so ever. 

    I've had a season ticket since 1989/1990 season. I must be in a minority but learnt the last year or so more to life than Bristol city.

  8. I was more than happy with the appointment of Pearson. Slightly concerned that the impact probably hasn't been as expected but he's not got a great squad to pick from. 

    I might be tempted to ask Chris wilder if he fancies the job? Although unlikely he would accept.

    I would relegate the 6 clubs now from premier league, cancel carabo Cup final and kick Chelsea out of FA Cup final. 

    Make a stand. Great to see Bruno fernades has come out to say ' dreams can't be bought'.
