  1. Margaret Dodds died yesterday at the age of 103. She had supported City over many decades, and attended every match , in all weathers, until last year. She was a lovely lady , who greatly enjoyed her football, and will be greatly missed. She was amazingly fit for her age, until becoming unwell a couple of days ago. My most enduring memory of her was going to the pub after we defeated Manchester United. A great night !
  2. Gillies v Leeds 74 Gillies v Man U 75 Gillies v Coventry 77 all away
  3. I think Steve Lansdown wants the best for the club. I am absolutely sure of it. It is just that he is clueless at picking managers. We would be mad to want him to leave the club. There are an awful lot of terrible owners.We all know who they are. He will appoint a good manager one day. But not today - obviously !
  4. The financial situation is being used as a reason why the cheap option of Dean Holden being appointed, but it is a two way thing. If Chris Hughton or any other manager ,is looking for a job, then they will have to accept that they will not be paid as much as they have in the past , and if they want a job ,they will have to accept the new reality. For all we know, Hughton or whoever else, may realise this. The main issue may not be having an acceptable level of control of the team, which would be a sticking point whatever the financial situation.
  5. 4 players. Ayling, Flint, Reid, Bryan, Kelly,Webster, Pack, Brownhill- 8 players. I agree with the OP- we can’t keep selling every one of our best players. We have not bought well enough. Aside from Webster replacing Flint, every one of the others I have mentioned has been replaced by players who are not , or not yet , as good. We are weak in midfield. Korey Smith is not as good as he was. Nagy is not as good as Korey Smith was. Dasilva is not (yet) as good as Bryan was. Reid’s goals have not been replaced ( although he may have been a one season wonder). Tammy also made a massive contrib
  6. Oldest fan ! 103 not out today. Still going strong !
  7. John Galley is my all time favourite. The best player we have ever had was Norman Hunter. Gerry Gow was really, really good but Bobby Kellard was even better.! Best goal scorer - Bob Taylor
  8. I agree it is irritating when someone states FACT. That is why I said it. It is particularly irritating when people give opinion as fact eg Johnson is crap - FACT. I am taking the mickey out of them. At least my facts are facts ! It is true most expensive Bristol City ever assembled -FACT One final FACT. Most expensive Bristol City sales in any 2 yr period . More than the cost of assembling the current squad. Happy New Year
  9. 33 years of unbeaten top division football would do me nicely, like Coventry who went up in 1967, especially if it included an FACup win and a season of European football (would have been two were it not foe English clubs ban). Of course, as you say , we have underperformed for decades. Of course, every club’s fans pay to watch their team and can criticise if they want, but in any one season only 20 teams can play in the Premier League. No one has a right to be there. The moaning of some fans when their team does not make the top 4 to play in the Champions League makes me laugh/ sick.
  10. Some things never change. I have heard it all before. LJ out. Sod out. McInnes out. Doherty out Houghton out . Osman out . Dicks out . Whichever manager we have ever had will never take us to the promised land, apart from Dicks of whom the same was said before he did take us up ( and down again). So all those predictions over the years have proved to be correct. We ( indeed the whole of the West Country ) has had a total of 4 years of top division football since the First World War - FACT Every team except Millwall and Barnsley have spent more seasons in the top division than we h
  11. 30 including Somerton (flew from Australia for our “last” game) Upton and White Hart Lane
  12. Actually Cardiff scored 69 . We scored 67
  13. Excellent post. Agree with every word.
  14. Perhaps attendances will drop over the next 2 or 3 years. If this happens this will probably be the prelude to a couple of seasons of struggle followed by relegation. Th club will then consistently finish in the top 7 of the league below , our “fans” will happy because the team is winning ( against poorer opposition) , and attendances will rise again prior to a push for promotion. It is a pattern which has been repeated many times over the decades. This suggests that , at least, some of our support is happier watching a team nearer the top of the division below rather than being in th
  15. Oh, we’ve done high profile managers in the past. We had one who had taken a team to the quarter finals of the World Cup. That worked out well. Within 2 years we were relegated with a truly pathetic team. We’ve also had a manager who had taken a team to the European Cup Final . That worked out even better. We were relegated 3 years in a row. Peter Doherty and Bob Houghton (Yes, I know Dicks was in charge for the first of those 3 seasons)
