  1. Obviously I’ve missed out on the shocking violence and thuggery at golf, cricket and rugby, presumably licensing authorities are also unaware which is why they so naively allow supporters of every form of sport other than football, to drink alcohol during the course of a match. Football is the only sport I’m aware of where supporters are routinely segregated to avoid violence...it’s not an opinion, it’s a fact.
  2. I’m sure it helped you and whoever the originator is...cut and paste from where?
  3. There’s no need for any professional sportsman to be “fatigued” if they’re fit...more of the usual bull from a football manager/coach rather than admitting we didn’t play well.
  4. I don’t really post that often unless it’s something I actually care about, I regularly attend football at the Amex, Ashton Gate, Wembley, rugby union at Twickenham, Bristol, Quins and league at Wakefield and cricket at the County Ground and Hove along with The Ageas, Lords, Edgbaston...most years I also spend a couple of days at Wimbledon, The Open and the Ladies Open, so I’m quite well qualified to comment on sports crowds. Football crowds are just different, nowhere is better or worse, it’s tribal, bitter, vicious, racist and has the least sophisticated, most unpleasant supporters...the odd thing is when they go to watch other sports they’re like normal human beings.
  5. I don’t compare us with Rovers, as they’re impoverished tent dwellers but as CotswoldRed says “it’s pretty average” and by definition average is not good. Match day experience is excellent compared to where we were and I say that as a City and Bears supporter and attendee. So, to summarise, atmosphere= average match day experience= excellent
  6. Sorry but the atmosphere has never been great at Ashton Gate and the crowd traditionally one of the quietest, it was when I saw my first game, oddly enough against Rovers in the FA Cup, in 1968, and is now.
  7. Perhaps he/she will hang around and delight us with some more pearls of wisdom
  8. If they weren’t playing professionally they’d all be playing the game they love at the clubs most of them played at as juniors...and a few after game scoops with the opposition was always the highlight of the day for most of us.
  9. I would imagine any Downs League team would put double figures past which every women's team are currently ranked No 1 in the world but that really isn't the point...women generally are not good at sports broadcasting because firstly, they think they have a point to prove and secondly, they don't know when to shut up.
  10. They've been giving for so long!
  11. I remember an evening back in the early 70s when we played the Gloucestershire Senior Professional Cup Final at Eastville, in the days when it was a big deal and both teams put out a first team. Our forward line scored the first four leaving Skirton, no 7, the odd one out and they fed him until he got the fifth...happy days and not much has changed.
  12. I often wonder if we should adopt them as our development partners, we could lend them our promising juniors and squad players who can’t make the team sheet even on the bench, they could use last seasons away kit, we could loan them the LWB Transit van for away matches and let them sell off our out of date snacks with their fake Fanta...and as Red Army 75 suggests we could give them a charity game at Ashton Gate during the summer.
  13. Sadly it’s you who’s intolerant and illiberal and sadly out of touch with the realities of modern life, populism, a concept I’m sure you despise, is merely the voice of democracy in the new age of digital communication, watch out for more of it as the masses grasp and exercise its potential.
  14. Probably in one of the tolerant, liberal, non judgemental groups of listeners who find the presenters, callers and content entertaining.
