  1. Everyone needs to realise that what the club have come up with is final. A lot of money will have been spent on developing it to this point and all the money into marketing it and setting it out across all the Bristol City teams merchandise. I think this will also be the end of the purple and lime 3rd kit for a while. The new crest doesnt go well with it and from seing the ads up around bristol today our colours next season will be plain Red , white and black for 1st 2nd and 3rd kits. Nice basic retro look to compliment the new badge.
  2. I booed AND I WILL DO IT AGAIN . For any fan to have paid the money to endure another poor first half performance with countless missed passes and little to no attacking threat against a team that isn't far off from ourselves I feel that I should be able to make my feelings known. I cheer and shout and sing along when we are getting up the field and creating chances. The team has to earn it. If we go in at halftime tonight without any attacking threat or a goal down I will boo.
  3. For the first 5 games of our unbeaten run and the few games before i was disenchanted. I even skipped one of the home games. But now there is clarity. The boredom has in fact become consistency. Consitant defenseve performances will mean we will finish higher than last season. And when were grinding out those 1-0 or 2-1 wins in the last few games of the season it will have all been worth it and we will be sat on the edge of our seats enjoying every moment. Thats all providing were around the top 6. If were not part of the chasing pack for promotion then we havent advanced from last year and that would be a reason for me to reconsider the hundreds of pounds a season ticket cost. What im saying is 8th or higher please Lee , keep a clean sheet till 70 min and send Taylor on to bring home the 3 points and i will leave the gate each week a happy clappy chappy.
  4. In the system we are playing with pushed up full backs he should be starting over LK every time. He can use both feet, quick and can dribble through defences.
  5. One for Max Oleary . Just chant 'Maximus Maximus Maximus Maximus !'
  6. Twitter is saying he turned down Sunderland as he wants to stay close to Cheltenham? Maybe he has family in the area.
  7. Well no of course generally you will be fine. Its a very very small risk but the consequences could be high, which could be partially why the FA are handing out lengthy bans for this offence. Remember when uefa handed out a four month ban to Suarez for the Bite. No broken bones there. Another silly act that has no place in the game.
  8. For anyone wondering why this is considered worse than a physical altercation or bad tackle or even broken bones , just look up what diseases can be spread via spitting. Some of them I would take a broken bone over.
  9. With the ban being upheld one can only assume that he did infact spit at an opponent. Disgraceful and has no place in the game. I would be calling for a lengthy of ban if it were a player against us.
  10. The EFL FFP rules are very clear and every club should already know if they have fouled them or not. Seeing as we have already signed players and registered them i think we can assume to be in the clear. I think we may have been close if not over the spending limits at some point had we not signed the new bumper deal with Dunder and lancer scott graciously stepped down. Even with the cup run tv money. Perhaps Birmingham ran to close to the line and didn' factor in the various managers they have been through this last season.
  11. Thanks for taking the time to respond. I understand that everyones circumstances are different and that this site is a great place for city fans to come and interact. Its why i come on here as i dont know many football fans let alone City fans. The initial question about how the site can be more appealing to the next generation of fans still stands. Does the general user base even want more of the younger generation getting involved out of fear of it ending up like the facebook page ?
  12. I am not a member so in that case I'll count myself lucky.Facebook doesn't have any anonymity to hide behind which is maybe why you don't see users getting into heated discussions, when you have a real name and a face everyone tends to be much more civil than on anonymous forums like OTIB. I'm not claiming that any of the cretins on Facebook are civilised!
  13. 23. My opinion of this site is that it is in echo chamber.There seems to be a number of users on here with quite high post number. RobboRed as an example, the 3 threads i have looked at today and you have the most number of posts in all of them. It gets boring very quickly when you have the same small group of posters conducting 70% of the conversations on each thread every day. Do you guys not have lives outside of this little corner on the internet ? I get that we need users to post in order to have any discussion but most of it i crap jokes. Just look at this thread. most of it is total garbage, topics just go off topic too quickly to get any real discussion going. We live in an era where every story going on or that has ever happened is at the tip of our fingertips. This is what you are competing with. You also have to remember that everyone is on mainstream social media, facebook Twitter etc. The city till i die facebook page has access to everyone on there. How does this site get new users ? how can this site compete ? Cause I dont think it can.
  14. Article from a few years back. of 20,000 corners taken from european leagues. total 3.5% conversion rate. also interesting is the number of goals from counter attacks from cleared corners. Without looking at our numbers i would estimate we are above average? http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fancy-stats/wp/2015/05/02/the-value-of-a-corner-kick-in-soccer/?utm_term=.a6b6871a6d13
