  1. That was against a small itinerant team currently squatting on North Bristol Somewhere
  2. You are definitely right about Paul Scally. Quite an apt surname. Seems to revel in a bit of controversy. Similar to Barry Fry in that respect. Plumbed new depths in terms of non likeability when they employed Mr Evans as manager. I remember some particularly salty comments in the local press from Scally following us beating them in the JOT semi. Along the lines of it just wasnt fair that we had £2 million pound rated players in our squad and on loan and the while 'clubs like Bristol City' carry on spending like this at this level it makes a mockery of the competition. Seem to recall that he refused to sell Bradley Dack to us then let him go to Blackburn for less. Maybe mistaken on this last point.
  3. Living In Gillingham now. Their local rivalry with Maidstone is fairly strong. In terms of league rivalry Millwall and Charlton raise most ire. Millwall well just because and Charlton enmity seems to stem from Charlton running regular coaches from the Medway towns during the premier league stint and allegedly stealing fans . Was mostly stirred up by Paul Scally who is not particularly known for wasting good oil on troubled waters. Seems to be a bit of enmity between us and Gills at boardroom level. Certainly the Pulis connection doesn't help.
  4. You'll never get surprises living in Devizes.....
  5. Notts county have on of those with Rovers apparently. My ex father in law is a massive County Fan. Something to do with unsporting behaviour over a throw in apparently.....not like Rovers to be unsporting
  6. Was a great day. Watched most of the 98 world cup in there as well
  7. Terribly sad news. RIP Buster. True Gent and City Legend.
  8. That's just a technicality Miah....at least that's what I keep telling myself about that season. All style over substance
  9. We were the best team by far. Playing brilliant football. Rovers got the first game postponed when we were flying (Bath City played on it less than 48 hours later) Taylor got injured for the run in. 2nd May we lost the title to them.
  10. Its difficult to say. JJ had certainly given us a lot of momentum since taking over from Terry Cooper and raised the profile of the club. He seemed to be able to attract players to City. Not sure if long term it would have carried on but momentum is a big thing in football and after the promotion in 1990 we were still accelerating. Joe leaving stalled our momentum. We will never know if he could have got us promoted that season but it could be argued that he would have least got us into the play offs that we just missed out on under Lumsden. I think he was the right person at the right time for City, whereas when he came back for his second spell the club was a bit of a shambles. Goes to show how much football has changed. Just cant imagine a manager leaving us for Hearts now and seeing it as a forward step. Different times. Guess Joe at the time might have seen it as a stepping stone for the Scotland Job which would have seemed attractive in those days as well
  11. Still at school. Had fake tickets. Remember it being a hot day. Drove over to Bath from Knowle with my mates older brother in his yellow Cortina. Remember Bath road being chokka with city cars on their way. Arrived not long before kick off. Horrible tense atmosphere. Remember a police cordon around the ground and outside away turnstiles checking tickets. Needless to say ours were found to be fake and we didn't get in. My mates brother had a real ticket and got in so we could not get home. Got taken outside the double decker police bus and asked where we got the tickets. Just said off a bloke at Ashton gate. We made our way around to the hill above Twerton where we could only see about half the pitch. Loads of other City Fans up there. Enough said about the game...clearest memory of what I could actually see of the pitch was I think John Bailey being treated after swallowing his tongue?...awful memories of partying ahead singing that Irene dirge. Took hours to get home.
  12. Get well soon Buster. City Legend
