  1. If this has been posted before, apologies.
  2. I saw City play away in a borrowed Swindon Town away kit in the 80s.

    Sad Day

    Well done to all those who have offered help like Tommy and Phantom. I have just posted a q to Gerry SLO (subject to mods clearance) with an idea.
  4. Hi Gerry, There is a very moving post from BCFC76 entitled Sad Day. Unfortunately as I now live in Northern Ireland, I am unable to offer any assistance (unless your budget extends to an Easyjet annual pass). However, there must be many City fans in BCFC76's position of suddenly feeling isolated and wanting to go again to the Gate but can't face going to a match. Knowing that they will be attending without their usual loved one with them would be to some a really difficult and emotional hurdle to overcome. I can appreciate that in this potter's case he has the additional concern of navigating a wheelchair on his own now. As a fulltime carer to my wife, i can appreciate that is yet another stress for BCFC76 to overcome. So....how about at the start of the season, as well as the first home game of the new year, there could be a room set aside in the ground whereby fans suffering bereavement could congregate before the match? I think it would be a lovely gesture by the club if at least coffee and tea plus biscuits were provided as well. So that it isn't abused by fans just turning up with a family entourage, it would have to be for that fan only (plus carer etc) but obviously that's your call. I hope the above makes sense. Many thanks. PS At the Stoke City New Year's Day game last season, I was really impressed when at half time, all the Stoke City fans who had passed away in the last 12 months were remembered by their loved ones. Photos had been sent in prior to the match, so it could be shown on the big screen. Maybe this could be done as well?
  5. Speedway tracks around the outside of the pitch... Eastville, Stamford Bridge, Halifax Town, Newport County to name but a few...
  6. The 'physio/trainer' running onto the pitch to help save a dying player and all he had was his magic sponge and a bucket of water. Funny how those magic sponges cured so many players yet they were never available at a chemist, not even on prescription.
  7. Bob, Bob super Bob was subsequently used by WBA fans after his transfer.
  8. The original presenter was Sara Cox who went right up in my estimation when she presented a C5 show about her Grandad in the World War. Because of this, when my wife started to watch Throw Down I became interested. However, I wasn't aware Sara came from Bristol. However the original Judge was Kate Malone! It's a great show especially as I couldn't model anything let alone in clay. Also, filmed in Middleport, Stoke-on-Trent where we lived for 10 years.
  9. He said that quote at Trumpton not Eastville didnt he? His other quote that landed him in trouble was after a Christmas match as the players and officials were trundling off the pitch. The man in black had had a bad game if you were Rovers biased. Out of the tannoy came, "The ref is available for pantomime bookings."
  10. Indeed Lantern. I thought I'd give fellow readers more info to back up what your goodladyMrsLRherindoors did and to confirm how easy it is especially as they can go direct with the website address. www.bt.com/sportsupport I too have saved them a phone call (where I got the address from a voice message).
  11. Assuming Rovers go into liquidation, would Miah actually want to watch just one team in Bristol? When their stand caught fire and burnt down their trophy cabinet in the early 80s, they played at the Gate for a few matches. My memory might be different to the actual stats but I think they went from 6000 to just over 4000. The main reason for Rovers fans not attending was because they wouldn't attend a match at the Gate. Assuming that the trend continues on this hypothesis, an extra 4k would be healthy financially for Steve and of course Maggie. As a nod to Rovers fans, we could make our away kit either Blue n White quarters or Purple and Lime quarters. I get the feeling most would choose the latter! If anyone could design a purple n lime quartered shirt and post it, it would be interesting to see what it would look like. Thanks!
  12. I have got a refund. This is what you do. No need to phone them. I did it online via my phone. No, I don't work for BT.

  13. It is lovely to see the new stadium but does anyone miss Beryl's Portacabin shop and if looking at it to its left the massive nearly environmentally friendly gents toilet?
