  1. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    Or as I like to call him, the Gaptain!
  2. In the Courts

    Just a helpful pointer for those who haven't had to study legal Latin: Actues Reus is the criminal deed (punching, glassing, stabbing etc.) Mens Rea is the criminal thought (wanting to cause bodily injury). Chris Rea is driving home for Christmas (unlike Rooney, possibly).
  3. Are you serious? You're saying the only reason Wolves played that way is because fewer of their players are British. Of course, when Warnock's predominantly British Rotherham visited the Gate two years ago, and Redknapp's Birmingham last season, both games were of a feast samba football redolent of one of the legendary Brazilian or Dutch teams of yesteryear. Of course there's no way that English teams or players could possibly feign injuries, deceive the officials, steal yards at throw ins and free kicks, or not give the ball back when more sporting teams should. In the modern game, people cheat, dive and moan and it has nothing to do with where they're born. Take the racist blinkers off.
  4. What ever antics were being used by Wolves last night, they had nothing to do with the players' nationality or blood. Many players these days roll around for no need, try and con the officials and generally don't act within the spirit of the game as we'd all like. To say it is only foreign players who do it is factually inaccurate and racist (by saying someone dives/cheats simply because of their race is to single them out for their race). I'm sure I need not remind anyone that John Terry is as big a cheat as we'll see at the Gate this year and he was England captain. We've got a nice long thread laughing at the Gappers for a whole series of calamities, several of which relate to their fans alleged racism - let's not drop to their level. Due to my own ignorance I don't know if the Wolves players and manager have a fair bit of form for this sort of thing - if they do then by all means call out the individuals but don't accuse all foreigners of being cheats, as I don't think Pisano, Magnússon, Dhiedhou, Đurić, Eliasson or Engvall etc would appreciate it!
  5. Matty Taylor's Having a Party

    No need for the violent suggestion here. It somewhat undermines your point. Which is worse: man socialising with colleagues during time off; or man getting punched for socialising with colleagues during time off? I think this one can be filed under 'storm in a teacup'.
  6. Would City games sell out with cheaper prices?

    19k a week @ £30 each or 21k @ £10..? The choice is between £570,000 or £210,000. The difference is £360k. Had we done that just once last season we wouldn't have been able to sign Matty Taylor so I think Bristol Sport has got this one right. They're maximising the finances while ensuring that most fans who want to attend can attend.
  7. Freddie Hinds (Merged)

    If giving a second yellow, there is no option to play on and then come back to send him off. Either you blow up immediately and send him off, or you play on and no second booking.
  8. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    So after all this it seems their long list of no-fixed-abodes has grown: Twerton, Eastville, the aborted move to Cheltenham, and now we can add the NotYetihad and the No Camp. Never has a team played at so many 'home' grounds without building anything (canopies and carpets aside). Always Look On The Bright Cider Life
  9. Oxford United badge on the new away shirts

    For those who can't get enough of this national news story, the Bristol Post has done a follow up piece! That's right, 2 articles for one little label. http://www.bristolpost.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/bristol-city-fan-told-hold-135617 P.S. I cannot wait for the season to start now so we actually have something to discuss. Always look on the BrightCiderLife
  10. Oxford United badge on the new away shirts

    My best so far for how it happened is either an Oxford fan working at our manufacturers, or we buy those little labels in from somewhere else and were sold the wrong ones. Any other ideas?
  11. Apologies if posted elsewhere, but has anyone else spotted the Oxford badge inside the new away shirts? Anyone else who's got one, does yours have it too? Always Look on the BrightCiderLife
  12. The Great City Run

    So today's the big day. Please follow #RunFootballRun on Twitter to follow our progress as we run 18 miles across London. We will be posting updates as we run from ground to ground so please share them to help raise awareness of the 2 great charities we are running for. Fingers crossed this will help generate some much needed karma and that we'll be able to bounce around Griffin Park despite the pain in our knees! Many thanks to those who have shared and donated so far. See you at Brentford! AlwaysLookOnTheBrightCiderLife
  13. The Great City Run

    Thanks to everyone who has donated so far, really is appreciated - lest hope we benefit from some extra karma. I ran a half marathon the same day as LJ ran the Bath one and I beat him by about ten minutes so hopefully I won't be late to the game! Looking forward to seeing you there to thank you personally - I'll bring some deodorant for the game though!
  14. The Great City Run

    I am a life-long City fan currently exiled in London. I've kept up my season ticket in the Dolman and still go to just about every home games. But living in London means the London away days are much easier for me to get to - but not Brentford away! On 1 April this year me and another City fan will be running from south east London to Griffin Park in time to watch the match. We are both running the London Marathon three weeks later so the 17 and a half mile run will be good training for us. To add some interest, we have decided to add a sporting twist to the run so we will start at the Valley, home of Charlton Athletic, as that is close by. Our run will then continue on past the Den in Millwall, then to the Oval in Kensington (where they play a funny old sport with a ball but no feet!), over the Thames to Chelsea (I'll pass the forum's regards to Wael if I see him watching his favourite team), then a quick sprint over to Craven Cottage (here's hoping this trip to the Cottage ends with 3 points like my last three) and then the home straight out to Brentford. We are both running the London Marathon for charity - I am doing it for the World Cancer Research Fund and my friend is running it (with his brother) for Sense. I've put links to our fundraising pages below and would kindly ask anyone who can, to help some fellow Reds make a difference and raise some money for two excellent causes. Donations are also welcome from our blue cousins - we know one of you has an extra £150k to get rid of quickly! All donations do make a difference and getting us closer to our fundraising targets makes the long tiring training runs pounding the polluted London roads that much better. If you see us on our run into Brentford, make sure you give us a cheer of encouragement!

    It's important to remember that this is the supporters' club and not BRFC involved in the latest fiasco. Of course, one of those organisations is a professional body with proper accountants and lawyers, while the other is a bunch of well-intentioned amateurs who may struggle to get their finances in order. The professional's accountants and lawyers justify their fees by pointing out that while they lost £150k in a year, the amateurs managed to lose ten times that in just one day last week!
