    Is it just my imagination or is this annoying trend getting worse? Doesn’t help that our own co-commentator did it persistently during the Luton game, of course, but all over social media from QPR fans - Bristol this, Bristol that, Bristol the other. Argh!!

    Perhaps we should tell people that every time we are referred to as “Bristol” a tree is cut down in the rainforest or something…

    I don’t mind it, for me it enforces that there is only one team in Bristol so they don’t need to define it!

    That might be the case but I can’t see that it would be in his interests to sign a new contract, so our best financial option would probably be to sell him next summer - obviously depends on who’s interested and how much but, as you know, that’s the cold hard reality of the modern game.

    I think at least now under NP he’s playing regularly and playing well so I’d we are to have any chance of him signing a new contract it’s now

    The table is starting to take shape we're in 12th at the moment which is better than where I thought we would finish so I'm not going to get too upset. 

    I think the issue is exacerbated by the fact that our problem is playing at home, if we had beaten Cardiff and Reading at home and drawn away to Preston and Luton I don't think there would be anything like the concern that's currently being shown. 

    And also we lost 4 points with the last kick of two games pretty much, which would have put us on 13 on the edge of playoff places, which would have been a great start.  Fine margins obviously and we need to start seeing games out, but it’s not all bad, can’t see us going down or anything, but we need to start getting home wins to galvanise the fans

    What was interesting is SL still rated Ashton following his departure and had kind words to say.

    He destroyed everything good following our promotion season but the owner is unable or unwilling to acknowledge that.

    You are right about Pearson. I like how he is going about this season which is a big improvement on last year's disaster.

    He’s hardly going to start slagging Ashton off in public is he! 🤦🏻‍♂️

    Atmospheres turgid since the redevelopmenmt and of course that matters but not for all my son sadly binned watching city as its boring now. The Dolman is now dead deceased 100% for atmosphere. fans doing more!! fans got told one game by the stewards they couldnt sing and if they wanted to do so should go in the singing section. weclome to the new world attack more please City because if you dont its a library as the away fans kindly remind us every home game.

    To be fair the atmosphere was crap most of the time for the last 30 years ive been going, the redevelopment has nothing to do with it at all.  If the games good, and we are playing well, then the atmosphere is great, if the game is poor and we are playing poor it’s rubbish, that’s just the way it is.  The atmosphere at the Man Utd game in the newly developed ground was immense, so that proves that the atmosphere can be great in the new ground

    No, I don't mean Lee Johnson and Jay DaSilva... 

    Taking kids to football for the first time!

    What age? What was it like? Any advice for a dad of a 2 year old?

    I took my nephew for the first time when he was about 6, he was bored sh*tless (it was that cup game v Sheff Wed we lost 3-0 so it was sh*t) but we got him to count the crowd which kept him entertained!  He’s now nearly 18 and has a season ticket!

    Lots of boos. More so for Pack from what I heard but both got plenty. 

    It’s all pantomime though isn’t it, I’m sure the ex players don’t go home crying about it saying ‘why have they turned on me”

    The point is though that Ronaldo has been able to score the amount he has because of how many shots he's had the chance to take, he often shoots where the better option is a pass, so in that regard its not a wonder he scores more. This also should count for all players but strikers probably should be looked at in terms of non-penalty contributions, how many has Ronaldo scored over his career? Conversion rate is a massive metric to base strikers on.

    But that’s not been an issue as the clubs he’s played for have won everything pretty much, and they have based there game around him, you seem to be suggesting his conversion rate is poor which is mental when he’s scored more than any other player in history bar Messi

    New chant? "He takes loads of shots, he scores loads of goals"

    But, seriously, he does take notably more shots than other players, and his conversion rate is actually pretty average.

    That’s why statistics are misleading, and the only one that counts for a striker is how many goals they score and for Ronaldo that is most definitely not average!  674 in 897 games at the top top level winning everything you can pretty much as a player (bar the World Cup)

    So the player needs to get his "wrong" in first before the fan does, so that he's not left high number dry unable to chuck the bottle because of the old "two wrongs" thing?

    I never understand why when a player gets dogs abuse from the crowd for 90 minutes, has enough and gives the crowd the V’s or something, and the same crowd dishing it out go berserk and the player gets a ban!  Football logic is weird
