  1. I have also mis interpreted your post!! Xg bad. Bentley Good.
  2. Wish I wasn't going tomorrow. Have paid 28 quid and fuel for the privlidge of watching more of our usual brand of Snore-ball. I must be mad.
  3. I must of picked it up in conversation about the wider works planned for st Philip's marsh at work.
  4. Have heard some interesting information on the Fruit market for their potential new home. They put in an offer upwards of £20 mil for the land, however it was tied up in all sorts of clauses about them selling the Mem and projected profits and such which meant the current owners wouldn't have seen the full amount till around 2028/2030. (Actually Wise on rovers part given their current financial situation, but not what the fruit market owners want) There are several parties which own the fruit market and they are looking for money up front. They are mostly of an older generation probably looking towards retirement and are keen for the market be kept running by the new owners in some shape or form. These parties are not currently represented by someone which is difficult as it means that anyone looking to buy the site are having to negotiate with each of the parties rather than 1 pwhich organises their collective interests and demands. All of this will make it difficult for them or anyone else to secure a deal in the current state of affairs. There are other interested parties in purchasing the site or wider parts of st Phillip's marsh for other major developments which could may or may not benefit any stadium proposals. Should the current owners get serious about cashing out and employing an agent it could cost rovers a bit more than they are willing to pay as well as additional demands to cater to. Particularly if they cant pay most of it up front. Maybe they will join up with a property developer to provide something similar to the future ashton gate wider development ? ( flats hotels and offices as well as the main stadium) but theres lots of questions about rovers current financial situation, and how they could convince someone to get into bed with them. My view, it could very well happen but probably not before 2025. If the council are supportive of a stadium in that location it would make sense as both grounds would be close to any future transport or infrastructure investments which are planned for the area. Any money spent on amenities like bars and cafes run by the club or local businesses would see increased returns if the site is shared by a stadium and flats and offices. Anyway. Back to taking the P*ss out of them. And apologies for any formatting and spelling, I'm on a train on my mobile.
  5. http://www.englandfootballonline.com/TeamPlyrsBios/PlayersW/BioWedlockWJ.html 26 games for england and 19 for City ? Is that right ?
  6. Sorry if I touched a nerve . I was only pointing out the fact that the story is 100 years old. Didn't anybody write about him at the time ? Also just looked up the final online. Says we played in Blue!
  7. Does anyone really bother about football 100 years ago ? I mean i didnt start till 1999 but no bugger is alive that would have seen him play. 'No book has ever been written to tell the story of the most mythical and iconic figure in Bristol City's history - until now.' I mean i didnt start watching till 1999 but no one is alive that would remember seeing him play.
  8. I understand your point , but in my opinion it needs to be dealt with in the strongest way possible or it's going to have little effect. I don't think more stewards or more policing is going to change the behaviour of these people. However if all their friends and supporters around them are telling them they need to stop , it is going to have a much longer lasting effect. They need to know they arent welcome here or in society any more.
  9. Give us a game behind closed doors. Easiest way to deter these actions is to make it everyone vs the racists who are spoiling it for the rest of us. They need to know they are not welcome here.
  10. Still out to tender with contractors to submit bids.
  11. Have heard that Chelsea told us to sign this kid to reserve him for them when their ban is over. Not sure if I believe it but it makes more sense than him wanting to play for us!
  12. Or you have one less sub named if you cant meet the homegrown requirement.
  13. I dont think you do! , you may be missing my point, all of the players I listed have been playing at a level above. Webster is untested at the highest level. Rice did play a lot at DM last season, but started as a CB, flip me he is only 20!
  14. Could be some truth in this, There are a lot of interested developers for this site, have heard talk of more private rented flats, or student residential. Would expect a lot of resistance from residents to move the market for anything. A football stadium could perhaps accommodate them still ? .
  15. On his day Smalling is a world class defender, not that he had many last season!. I would suggest all of them with the exception of maybe Dunk are comfortable with the ball at their feet for what is required of an England defender. Stones, Dier, Cahill, Keane, Chillwell , Rice. all excellent ball playing CBs way ahead of Webster in the pecking order as he has had only one good season in the championship, if he hasn't proven himself at the level of the players in competition against world class opponents. Look at the drubbing we had from palace in pre-season!.
