  1. Just, sadly, not good enough Too pedestrian Distinct lack of star quality Given owner's policy will we ever be good enough at this level to push on ? Without extraordinary, and unlikely, good fortune doomed to remain in Championship until the inevitable wheels come off You cannot stand still in life, and football is no exception, you must push on or inevitably face falling back at some point However to win promotion is only then a first faltering step - look at bottom end of top league this season. Will I live long enough to see City back in top division? I seriously doubt it. Will my grandsons live long enough? Hopefully with 80 odd years to go
  2. Watkins! Are you serious? Failed at this level disastrously with Norwich and now with us. OK now see you meant Walsh. Totally agree
  3. How often that has been true in our history. A quality player beyond the standard of the rest of the team. It is so frustrating. The only time in my watching of City at this level or above was the side that took us up to the old first division

    Well that is an enlightening addition to the debate

  6. Yet not professional enough as yet. Professional and charity are not opposites. I know many charities far more professional than BS And please it isn't City I am talking about but Bristol Sport.
  7. If we were indeed professional then BCTV would actually work 100% of the time Through the deal with Sky, BS get enough money to allow use of red button. Other very professional clubs manage it
  8. I have raised this issue previously. Of course many fans who live a fair distance away are very limited, due to cost and personal or work commitments, as to the number of games they can get to. Bs, City, SL or whoever makes the decision should start living in the 21st century. I should dearly like evidence as to how much match income would be lost if the match, or any match, is on the red button Come on City/BS/ SL get in touch with the real world of 2019 and the modern supporter. Some of us feel the club just only cares about money and not about the club's lifeblood, i.e. the fans. After all we and our families will still be fans long after BS and SL are but names in a history book
  9. A week or so ago, I was roundly attacked on another thread when I said I felt BS treated fans with contempt. The appalling publicity over the Easter egg fiasco, even reported in The Times, is yet, imo, but the most recent example of, at best, total incompetence, and, at worst, utter contempt for fans of City.
  10. Hopefully will allow the club to present film evidence of the ref's decision which was the cause of any protest by our players The standard of refereeing at this level, and others probably, needs to improve dramatically to cope adequately with the modern game Hopefully City will invest in proper legal representation. Will be worth every penny - not only to us for this incident but for the division as a whole if spotlight is turned on to the often unacceptable level of refereeing
  11. The great sadness of my life is, thanks to Nazism, I never saw my lovely medieval Bristol, but instead witnessed the building of the horrific Broadmead We must never forget the lessons of Nazism. Never forget or else we may be forced to live it all again. Ignorance is no defence
  12. Semeneyo , Adelakun, and Eisa don't seem to be gaining much by staying at Ashton Gate. Hope I am wrong.
  13. If you buy a ticket for a Brighton match, or are a season ticket holder, you have free travel to the Amex station from a range of places outside of Brighton by rail. I live in Worthing and can travel free to Brighton and then free from Brighton to the Amex with a match ticket and return home again at no charge. Some clubs are very forward looking!
  14. Given the last few comments re monorail etc, perhaps BS could take the lead and broaden out concerns by City fans re the transport system to a whole community initiative for better transport across the city. Now that really would be something.
  15. Just to remind us as Bristolians that the geography of our city militates against a metro system. Although personally I think that problem could now be technologically overcome. However, even without a metro, we had a better public transport system in the 1930s with a better bus service, a tram system, and a far better suburban rail system. All my life, I am 73, the public transport system of the city has been a blot on our city, especially when you compare Bristol to cities of similar size across Europe - to say nothing about the costs of using it.
  16. What. a silly question The phrase fake news has entered mainstream discourse - v. OED I think what was said of me was a gross distortion, and I believe no one should use dementia in anything but it’s correct place Sorry off to work now
  17. Dementia is far too serious an issue for it to be hurled about as a personal insult. Please refrain from using such offensive language, many will find it upsetting
  18. Certainly, some very long explanations last season posted on otib I really can't be bothered to go through all the abuse again from certain parties. We must agree to disagree about BS. Time alone will tell who in the long term is right. Until then let's enjoy the prospect of a play off place and potentially promotion
  19. Attacking this stand end providing higher tempo has been said long before I became a fan in 1950, according to family
  20. Please stop fake news. Please have the courtesy to look at my comments on last night's match which exposes your fake reporting of my views
  21. Clearly the advantage of having a Rovers player in the side
