    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.
  2. 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...
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. 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!
  8. Now working BUT not Radio Briz feed. Have got a TV commentary
  9. I don't know Radio Briz text number. If someone could text Geoff to ask him to get the ISDN box properly checked for broadcasting, that would help.
  10. Just wrote an email to Bristolcitytvsupport@streamamg.com. Maybe they'll get it next week
  11. No audio at all. Just white noise. Pity. In the past we've been able to contact Adam direct. Who can we contact now?
  12. Don't Tell I, tell 'Ee doesn't count. Apparently if you research into the history of the English language and accents in particular, the original English accent was like brizzle.
  13. I remember when we had to queue for our play off final ticket against Walsall all those years ago. The bloke in front of me was ten pounds short. I had never met him before but gave him the said ten pounds to which he said he'd drive over to Nailsea and pay me back within the next few days. He kept his word.
  14. It must be age thing Appy. The older you get, the more likely you will join the grammar police! I have often thought that if you were in court as a judge or even jury member, and the accused said, "It wasn't me, didn't do nothing" means you're guilty and sentenced to ten years watching the Gas. Conversely, if I was accused of something which was true and I uttered that phrase, "It wasn't me, I didn't do nothing" I was actually telling the truth but would be let off!
  15. Don't want no funnies about saturdays ref Sorry John, but your title means you do! yours pedantically, a friend not wanting the grammar police to visit you.
  16. I thought that as well. Apparently, fibre to the premises is different to the normal fibrebroadband that's offered by most providers, which has fibre commencing at the green box somewhere near your house at best. Competition? Not here in Northern Ireland. We can't even buy a phone battery on Amazon or eBay because the contents aren't suitable for delivery (ie it might start a fire).
  17. It took me a few posts to realise that SLO didn't stand for Steve Lansdown Organisation!
  18. We have FTTP (fibre to the premises). Openreach has the rights to provide this service which means that only BT can provide you with the internet. However, after 18 months, you are then allowed to swap to another provider. This is certainly the case for all City fans here in Northern Ireland! PS flying to Dublin or crossing the border a few miles away, so I can watch City on International Robins TV, is a non-starter. International in this case means outside of the UK and the whole of the island of Ireland.
  19. Blimey too! A great bike pun but as it wasn't related to a fish, I better raleigh the troops. Chelsea's Chopper Harris can help us!
  20. Not as fast as Dave Smudger Smith!
  21. Wasn't a five pointed star thrown onto the pitch? Each point had a pen knife blade attached.
  22. I remember going to Lincoln on coach 2 in the 80s. My only memory was being behind the goal and watching the cathedral (behind the other goal) get shrouded in fog! I suppose that's a definition of a foggy memory.
  23. Thank you for this photo. I used to be a Luton Town fan up until 1977 when we moved back to Bristol. The Oak Road in my day was the home end. In the old first division days my dad had to pay 90 pence through those turnstiles. I was charged a scandalous 45 pence. Regarding the small stand that runs along the side of the pitch, it used to be called the Bobbers Stand (named after the cost to get in ie 5 pence in old money).
  24. Quote of the year! We could start a Miah Is Innocent campaign, if anyone is bothered!
