  1. Far less busy based on Ticketmaster - a LOT of seats left to sell, in particular seats on the pitch area.
  2. Was interesting to see Ben Foster talk about fixture release day on his podcast yesterday and what players look for and their take on it all. He was keen to stress that as a player, any tie against a promoted side is not wished for, let alone an away one. With this in mind, and I would agree with him, Sunderland away is about as bad as it could get TBH. I'd be happy with away to Millwall or QPR (selfishly local for me) as any London game will see good away numbers travel, and both of those clubs are similar in terms to us of expectations, albeit QPR would have the conundrum of a new manager that could be a blessing or curse.
  3. https://www.bcfc.co.uk/news/pre-season-home-games-streamed-free-to-season-ticket-holders/ PRE-SEASON HOME GAMES STREAMED FREE TO SEASON TICKET HOLDERS MONDAY, MARCH 28TH 2022 City’s pre-season home matches will be live-streamed free to 2022/23 Season Ticket holders. The Robins have four home matches at the Robins High Performance Centre in preparation: Wednesday, July 6th – Cheltenham Town (2pm) Tuesday, July 12th – Portsmouth (2pm) Tuesday, July 19th – Forest Green Rovers (2pm) | Exeter City (4.30pm) Due to the earlier start to the season and to give optimum preparation time for the Ashton Gate pitch, all pre-season games will be played at the Robins High Performance Centre. City will be under-taking an Alpine training camp at the end of June, though there will be no games or open training sessions for fans to attend. The High Performance Centre has a limited capacity and there will be no general tickets available for supporters. More than 13,000 Season Tickets have already been purchased for the Sky Bet Championship season which kicks off on July 29th. And to allow as many of our fans as possible the opportunity to watch the pre-season games, Robins TV will stream the Cheltenham Town and Portsmouth matches, and either the Forest Green Rovers or Exeter City game, free to 2022/23 Season Ticket holders, who will each receive a voucher code. The games will also be available live on Robins TV to non-Season Ticket holders and away fans for £4.99 each.
  4. Did this actually happen and take place last week? It seems like all info and news on it has vanished without trace.
  5. Seen Springsteen and the E-Street band 12 times at various places all over the world and they are nothing short of exceptional. IF he does play AG - I would seriously suggest anyone who like live music to see him before it is too late. And I for one would be rather excited to see Springsteen at the Gate. Doesn't get much better than that, aside from Chris Martin scoring a 97th minute Championship winning goal v Cardiff
  6. Players do come and go, however do remember that they are no different than you or I and have feelings etc. Callum was amazing when he met my son, giving him so much time and encouraging him to pursue a dream of playing football. Last week was mental health week, and mayn don't know some of the injuries that Callum has faced as he is quite a private person. Many may say he should/could have delivered more, but I will say this - from what I saw, he gave his all and both he, and his family cared deeply about this club. He also did a lot in the community that was unnoticed and unreported, and represented Bristol City as a professional at all times. Good luck Callum and I for one hope you go on to achieve more in your career.

  8. It was the season I expected to be honest - and as ever, it is the hope that kills you. There were some low points - away to West Brom and Coventry were just woeful There were some high points - away at QPR with the Wells winner and home v Cardiff spring to mind To me, it is clear where investment is needed and we have some very experienced people at the club who I feel will strengthen where we are going. What many don't realise is really how bad things behind the scenes were. COVID provided a smokescreen of accountability and accessibility for us to see ourselves. Some still within the club are using it, to hide behind the decisions they made and the actions taken - but I do believe we have turned a corner for the better. Like many, I'm ready for a break TBH (albeit a shorter one with the WC) and am already looking forward to the fixture list and trips down the M4 to watch the team. Next year will be better, but it won't happen overnight. I'd happily take a top 10 finish for next year, providing we keep the spine of the young and developing squad which justified the investment into the training centre. Then in 2023/24 - we'll be fighting the once again relegated Fulham to win the league!
  9. Based on where I live, the cost of fuel is the biggest issue for me. A 200 mile round trip for every game is taking it's toll. But to ensure that my son and daughter wear the red of BCFC with pride around Berkshire, Hampshire and Surrey = priceless (providing I don't look at the Esso receipt every Saturday evening). All 3 of us will renew through blind faith/love/hope/stupidity.
  10. Sums up a lot of comments on this forum. The lack of actual football knowledge amongst some supporters is genuinely terrifying.
  11. Likewise - always found him very approachable and wanting to help. I raised an issue with him and he actively wanted to help resolve it. He does a lot that goes unseen and unnoticed. One thing I would say though is that the Ask SLO forum is slightly flawed in that you can't reply back, when he has posted back. It means if there are further elements to follow-up on, they can't be expressed.
  12. By the off chance, does anyone have a Youth Large version of this for sale? My son has determined that this is the shirt he wants for his birthday and as is often the case, it is the only one out of stock on the website. Thanks.
  13. Not sure how many know the full story, but many players in the team were glad to see the back of him due to some of his behaviour
  14. I'll be coming from near Reading. Keeping fingers crossed the usual long trip home is a sweet one as I pass lots of Royals fans on the M4, looking grumpy as they bemoan yet another loss.
  15. He's gone alright! https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11695/12529081/sunderland-sack-head-coach-lee-johnson-following-6-0-defeat-by-bolton-in-league-one
