  1. Barnsley 2 Bristol City 2
  2. Just as well his surname isn't Hospital, Idea or Lee-Speaking if his Christian name is General.
  3. Paul Cheesley is going well and could be at the next home game! Pedantry rules ok!
  4. It's fantastic that you've been able to keep the article and that it also has a lot of emotional attachment with regards to your dad. Worth having it professionally framed. They could even iron out the creases.
  5. "Je voulais jouer avec la plume de ma tante"
  6. At Scunthorpe away a couple of seasons ago, I wore my Nibor Purple shirt to the match. I'm in my 50s. The shirt was over 25 years old. I didn't and I still don't care whether people think that I shouldn't be wearing that old football shirt. Why? I'll tell you why, because I was still able to get into it!
  7. Totally agree! Funny how critics can only give it a two star review. Mind you they think Citizen Kane is the best film ever and that there are two teams in Bristol! INCONCEIVABLE!

    Whoever on otib came up with El Sidre, please take a bow! I think it was borrowed by a City fan on the phone in later on.
  9. The pub is good though!
  10. Can you be awarded 1/2 a defunct ground visited for Dean Court, Bournemouth before they turned the pitch 90 degrees? Asking for a friend...
  11. Good calls regarding other grounds missing from the list. 21 for me from the original list plus Somerton Park= 22 and all with BCFC. Saw speedway at Eastville, Somerton Park and Wembley as well. What's sad for me is that quite a few years ago I had counted 72 grounds that I had visited with BCFC. My tally has been diminished by 22! It will be 49 grounds visited when Brentford move.
  12. There would be uproar from their fans. Doesn't their board know he's one of our own? He lived and worked next to the ground.
  13. Have we all forgotten Mike Hooper? If I remember correctly his first and only game was against Rovers? I will always remember his yellow gloves or marigolds!
  14. Our last home game (Reading) audio feed was woeful. We had white noise for the first 25 minutes followed by the TV commentary instead of Radio Bristol's excellent coverage. After ten minutes, I emailed via the link in the FAQs. I received a reply at 3.25 saying all was now ok. However they never responded to my response regarding the wrong feed. In the past, we would have had a direct email to the previous supplier of the feed. They were pretty good in responding. They also would offer additional week(s) to your contract should we not get a full 90 minutes. Also, should City not be playing we could listen to any other game within the EFL which especially towards the end of the season was of benefit. I contacted on Monday Gareth at BCFC. He was sympathetic and said he would get the new feed supplier, streaming.com, to email me with a response to my concerns. I'm still waiting. What concerns me the most is that nobody at the club knew there was a problem. In the past we could email Adam directly. He was superb. There were a couple of games when you could tell before kickoff that all wasn't well for a broadcast (I used to be a radio presenter and doubled up as an outside broadcast manager). By emailing him directly we only lost a couple of minutes coverage, the ISDN box being the problem (or human error in forgetting to apply the correct switch)! Gareth admitted there was nobody on site that day from technical and that nobody has been replaced to head up that department. BCFC wants £45 from us but can't guarantee supplying a decent service. I fully intend to contact Gareth again. Any thoughts welcomed.
  15. If you read the book Yes Minister, it sarcastically mentions that the English cricket team were struggling against Nepal in a test match. Maybe there footy team is better!
