  1. Not sure if this pic has already been posted (maybe even by me), but I saw it on fb today and I think it’s fascinating. The East End minus the roof, the old stand that was bombed in WW2, the area around the ground looking so different..... So much history. I’m very glad we stayed at Ashton Gate.
  2. Yes I have heard this too. I remember a kid at my primary school doing it, and that was in the 1980s when things between fans were already toxic. But it must have been common in the days before getting to away games was feasible. I’m intrigued to know how people who did this chose which side to support in a derby match.
  3. Offside


    Tough game tomorrow. A point would be a decent result tomorrow against a good team. It’ll be interesting to see how DH sets us up to play to our strengths.
  4. I wish him all the best. I’ve never been keen on the idea of him being in charge at City, but he is a great character who revels in his pantomime villain role. Football is all the better for such characters. I’ve never met him but I’ve heard he’s a throughly decent and approachable bloke.
  5. Mixed feelings for me. I was really disappointed when Holden was appointed, but I have accepted that now and am right behind him - he has come across well. We’ve made what look like decent signings and should be able to challenge for the play offs. But being unable to attend games means I feel little excitement. Watching games on TV with empty stadiums - it just doesn’t feel right.
  6. The 4-2 at home to Blackburn was a brilliant game and Nicky Morgan’s header after Dave Smith belted down the wing is one of my favourite ever goals. 3-0 at Northampton when Thorpe got the hat-trick was a good one too. The 3-0 defeat v Millwall was awful. My optimism after Coppell was appointed evaporated that day with the performance and seeing his body language. In that 5-0 Notts County game I’m sure Mickey Bell had a perfectly good goal disallowed so it should have been six. The Reading “Lavin” game was memorable cos of the kicking-the-ball-at-the-crow
  7. I have been reading the forum since about 2004, but I only started posting in 2015. I have no idea what my first post was about!
  8. I imagine over the next few years they will die out as fewer people buy them, which will be a shame, although admittedly I rarely buy them for home games now. I always buy them for away games.
  9. It sounds like Margaret was an inspirational lady. RIP fellow Red.
  10. That’s sad news. I’m sorry to hear about your brother’s passing. RIP to Dave and condolences to you and your family. As you said, he now has to best seat for watching football.
  11. Yeah, his celebration when scoring for Preston against us was bad enough, but there was also that incident when Flint got sent off - didn’t he provoke Flint and then go down like he had been shot?
  12. Tomlin (he had been a joy to watch in his loan spell). Stewart (what a let down he turned out to be). Scotty Murray returning. Trundle. Akinbiyi. Jacki (a Polish international playing for City!!! Seemed unreal at the time).
  13. The 2002 Blackpool game when we lost 5-1 was pretty awful. As was a 3-0 defeat at Wolves in the 1998-99 relegation season when Flapper Phillips tried to kick a back-pass up field and missed, and the ball trickled over the line. The defeat at Swansea in Tinnion’s last game as manager was hideous. I also remember a completely abject performance from City I a 2-0 defeat at Stockport during the Wilson years. Another one was a game at Ipswich about 8 years ago when we lost 2-0. On the train after the game an Ipswich fan told me he was speechless at how bad we were and s
  14. I remember his body language in the first home game, which gave the impression that he did not want to be here.
  15. Good luck Matty. Whether he was good enough is up for debate, but as mentioned in the OP he didn’t get a huge number of opportunities. An intelligent player who always put in a shift and seemed like a good character too. All the best to him. Edit - oops, wrong thread, mods please can you move to the Matty Taylor thread????
