  1. I think I may be going the same way. Non league certainly has its merits, and while quality of players may be lower you're still getting an entertaining and evenly balanced match. Remember watching odd down many years ago and the goalkeeper conceded from a back pass from the half way line which rolled between his legs. Slightly different entertainment to professional league stuff but I remember moments like this more than anything I've seen this season down ashton gate - and for a fraction of the cost
  2. Money. Sky. Weekend football not being played at 3:00pm or one late evening game I can accept. Who wants to go to a Severnside Derby at 12:00PM on a Sunday?! The ridiculous salaries the player receive. Part envy maybe, but makes me cross to know how much even the city players get and yet 90% of this season I've been bored watching sideways unentertaining football from these players given godlike status. Robbie Savage hosting football phone in programs. Ticket prices - Where else in the world can you be charged £42 to watch a second tier game of football. MADNESS. Bright coloured fancy boots. Some now even come with a sock style ankle protector?!? Giving freekicks for the tiniest of touches Praising a 'tactical foul'. I understand why, but this is cheating and shouldn't be encouraged. Sick of hearing pundits saying 'that was a clever foul to conceed there' Lack of interest beyond about 5 teams in UK - What number channel even is quest?!? Boring keep ball "barcelona style possession football" Hype around "Super Sunday" style top 6 clashes. These seem to become more dull the more they're hyped. Too many cagey park the bus 0-0, 1-0 games Instagram stories at games Pre match highlight reels (the same every week) Leaving the game 10 minutes before half time to buy a pie or pint - Leaving 4.5 minutes early in the first half and second half (9 total) means missing 10% of the game and at £35 a ticket price probably equates to roughly the cost of your pie. Seems to me like you're basically double paying for that pie!!! I honestly think some of my most enjoyable memories as a city fan have been in the third tier. No sideways and backwards passing, a few more thrills and spills, cheaper tickets, pay on the day for away games, no great divide between players and fans. I'm also trying to visit the 92 league grounds and find that most enjoyment nowadays comes from visiting the lower league grounds where I can park 300m from the ground, no major traffic before and after the game, no plastic fans like at the premier league games, cheaper food and drink and often more entertaining games of football.
  3. Can we therefore assume, when Korey scored the winner against Man United, it was not so much a celebration that led Lee Johnson to pick up and spin round the ball boy but more likely a vicious assault, in which our manager temporarily lost control of his senses and tried to force a submission from the nearest innocent victim.
  4. Some very fond memories of some of that squad! Why pick out a few poor players and ignore the likes of scotty Murray, Mickey bell, Louis Carey, Tommy Doherty, Aaron Brown, Tony Thorpe? Do you remember 2019/20 season when we got battered by West Brom 4-1? Rene Gilmartin, Hakeeb Adelakun, Marley Watkins, Antoine Semenyo, Rodri

    Drop Weimann

    I do appreciate this, but he only has 2 home goals this season which leads me to think he is more suited to our style away from home. I am a fan of weimann but fed up of the lacklustre football I've witnessed at home this season in general and as others have said Fams goals per minute ratio has been pretty decent this season. We seem to have tried all combinations of midfield and attackers behind him but I'm just not entertained. Not sure if dropping weimann and playing a different style of football would enable more goals throughout the rest of the team but it seems playing weimann is halting the opportunities we give eliasson as johnson doesn't seem to have a formation where both fit into the team.
  6. Now this is unlikely to be a popular opinion, but could it be that he doesn't fit into the style of football we play at home. The guys absolute class and doesn't stop running all game, but it seems our home tactic resolves largely around slow possession football as opposed to fast football in the break. Would it be worth a trying a 4-3-3 with odowda and eliasson either side of fam? It seems we always resort to long ball football after 60 mins and often grab a late equaliser so why not start out that way? I like weimann and dropping our leading goalscorer seems mad, but he doesn't seem so effective at home and we have got a large chunk of our goals at home from this long ball style. Would also give eliasson his run in the team
  7. Have a word with yourself. Red poppies on their arm bands, a poppy reef before the game and the expected moments silence. Nothing to see here. It's got nothing to do with bristol city that they've gone for blue poppies. It's their club colours and they've chosen to use a blue poppy display. You'd better wrap yourself in cotton wool and switch off the box if you're getting offended by that. Does my head in, always one to pick on faults of others and try and shine negative light on people. I assume there were military members at the parade who knew what the plans were and would have coordinated it all, and likely provided the poppies too. If they have no issue and are still able to have their parade and show respect to others with no qualms seems odd that you can't? People taking offence to the part that's not important. Poppies don't have to be red for you to show respect - youd be much happier if you stopped looking for things to get offended by
  8. All very picky and stupid from OP. Did they put their poppies down and hold a minutes silence to allow all in attendance to have a quiet moment to reflect? ... Yes they did Did they as a football club go out of their way to get blue poppies to show Bristol Rovers as a club are in support of this cause? ... Yes they did I hate this culture we now live in where people actively look for anything they can get offended by. I get they're Bristol Citys rivals but this is petty and they have done nothing wrong in this instance. I really feel for the people who genuinely care and get worked up about something like this! If you're genuinely offended by this and think they chose to use blue poppies because they refuse anything red from being had in their stadium, as opposed to being their way of showing their respect as a club, then that is very concerning and I'd suggest getting out more and enjoying your valuable and precious short time on this earth rather than looking for things to get offended by and then letting it spoil your day
  9. For the 15+ goal scoring season alone worth every penny
  10. Recall getting Aden flint on the cheap didn't we?
  11. Anyone tuning in for golovkin derevyanchenko?
  12. Would have to agree r.e. massengo. Got out muscled a few times and not quite at the races today. Still a solid game but certainly had better
  13. In this case, I think there is no harm and as you say making someone feel welcomed in a new city is a nice thing to do. However, seeing a middle aged man a couple of weeks back get up in the middle of his family meal out to get a selfie with Daniel Bentley while he was out with his family himself made me cringe. That being said, if I passed a man or woman who I knew had been critical in a significant medical break through then I would love the opportunity to give them the thanks they often go without. Being honest, I think all the money that is now thrown into football has in my opinion somewhat ruined my favourite sport and the concept that being good at football means you gain a godlike status in society is something that frustrates me. I don't like the idea of fuelling these apparent egos in the game, and then seeing countless articles about players kicking off for not being the highest paid player at a club (whilst still on 100,000+ a week) turns me against these people further.
  14. Personally don't like talking to 'celebrities'. Little bee in my bonnet I guess that there are people out there working for the NHS, researching cures for cancer etc etc who go unnoticed and unrewarded, yet we give godlike status to people who are good at football. Maybe jealous that they're getting paid a fortune for doing something I love but don't like fuelling egos and helping to reinforce this supremacy divide between them and us. I guess as a kid meeting your hero is pretty cool but always felt it a little cringey for a fully grown man to go up to another man and start complementing him and idolising him because he plays for my favourite football team. Expect there may be several who disagree with me on this
  15. Anyone know if Nagy is fit to play today? Johnson suggested the international game had set him back a couple weeks didn't he?
