  1. He was living in Bath last time I spoke to him. He had just finished working on the bin lorrie's due to poor health. This was around 2015 when I still lived in Frome and travelled to/from City by train. After I moved to S22 when it was opened, I remember seeing him in that block. But haven't seen him now for I guess, three years. I knew him since we stood in the same spot in the Covered End from 1980 through to about late 1980's. I then got a seat in Williams and only saw him occasionally until the train journeys referred to above.
  2. Without any ITK, could it be something to do with Nagy and his appearance for Hungary last week?
  3. Agree with all you say except that occasionally, the long ball to Row Z is the most sensible thing to do. A good example would be when we conceded last minute against Wolves season before last. Tried to play our way out and conceded a free kick when the back row of the Atyeo/Dolman was the best thing.
  4. Anyone know the result? Nowt on club site.
  5. As said above, I meant that we should get more home fans in as total gate figures include away fans.
  6. Last season Bris v Bath was allegedly a sell out but still less than the two gates v Man U and Man City. Due to, I believe, four blocks, two at each end, being non reserved seats. I have a feeling that the numbers of unreserved seats at rugby games may be reduced this season, but happy to be corrected on that one. Those figures include away fans? I meant to increase home supporters.
  7. Reductions on the actual total capacity are: Standing areas reduced by 10%. Segregation of Atyeo if there were home fans in it, usually means around 500 seats lost. If only away side fans in Atyeo, then we seem to have settled on 2,300 max. This figure us probably related to such pathetic allocations from some of the bigger Championship clubs. Other seat reductions may occur for extra TV cameras. I believe that we should just accept that our maximum attendance's possible are 26,100 if Atyeo has home fans and about 25,400 if only away fans in Atyeo. What we should be concentrating on as a club, is to increase our home attendances for all matches from approx 19,000 to 23,000.
  8. Are you including our "Opposition Presents" in the "Our goals scored" total?
  9. There is a very big difference between OTIB and the public medias. We use "Pen Names" to protect our anonymity. We have moderators who are very vigilant about anything out of place. I'm very sad for the Korey Smith family. I have never met him but from his actions on the field of play, I believe him to be a credit to his family, his employer, BCFC, and the supporters from whom I have never heard any comments that are offensive or obscene.
  10. Very good comments. However, I well understand how some are unhappy with our Head Coach. I and others could list our reservations about him, but immediately after our third 2-1 away win on the bounce is hardly the best time to to start blasting LJ with both barrels. The Championship is one of the most competitive leagues in the world. Stoke City may be bottom with only one point from their first six matches. Yet they took the lead and probably still had enough opportunities to have scraped a win even with only ten players. So, I'll accept our shortcomings whenever we bring home three points from clubs where we have traditionally lost for decades.
  11. If I was going, NO. This applause for the dead is becoming very tedious. So people die throughout the year. I have always considered that we go to football to forget real life, not have it rammed down our throats at every match. A minutes silence or applause once a season is sufficient.
  12. And where could O'Dowda fit in? Or should he not be considered?
  13. Good post Dave, he has things to prove to himself, the club and the fans. I consider it significant that he says in the club web site that he has grown up into a man. That's a difficult thing for any male to admit in public especially one in such a high profile job. I know that when I first married at age of twenty five, I still had a couple or three years to "grow up". We all do it at different ages and Callum's new found confidence should help him to improve. Although if he continues to take defenders on instead of turning back toward his own goal, like he did against Boro for our second goal, we will see the benefit game after game. Welcome back Callum.
  14. Poor display. Donated three goals to Kosova. England very good at playing walking football which is a game I thought was for old men who cannot run! Going nowhere with players like Barclay, Chilwell, a dreadful left back, Keane, Rice. Wow. Mae hen wlad..........................................
