  1. Parking Tonight

    Just to remind everybody of the following road closure tonight - Cumberland Road on Spike Island will be closed between the hours of 7pm and 6am on weekdays from Monday, November 20.
  2. Hegeler- this season's first '1' rating

    Seems to me that LJ has taken the opportunity to give the players who have been mostly on the bench this season a chance in the last couple of games - Eliasson, Leko, Hegeler, Woodrow - and tbh none of them have delivered. Maybe it's "shit or bust" time for these guys, and they won't get another similar opportunity anytime soon, disappointing for all concerned.
  3. Leeds fans in Dolman Block A

    At least two groups of Leeds fans thrown out of Upper Lansdown after their first and second goals, couldn't contain themselves! It always seems to be the same with Leeds, they need to respect the rules imo and get tickets in line with their allocation in the Atyeo.
  4. Opposition Views

    Some things never change it seems, just spotted this tweet - from Boxing Day last year - "#WOLvBRC WWFC moaning about the ref, yet falling over and trying to get free kicks at every opp. Especially fat no.9 ref got you 3 points" Also, it was our friend Danny Batth, captain & head injury feigner, who kindly hoofed the ball back to us - in touch, near our goal line, which then led to a goal - cheers mate! Maybe this guy's bad influence is the real issue for WWFC, and they need to address it as a club?
  5. Avon & Somerset Police 'snake' comment.

    Ha ha, class!
  6. Zak Vyner

    I don't have an issue with playing youngsters, Tammy has proved the point again and again, and for me players of the calibre of Taylor Moore could/should have been around to step in. Maybe I'm wrong, I just feel that Zak ended up with all the pre-debut hype about him crushed, and on his first game back he has a massive challenge. Really hope he has a great game if he plays, and genuinely happy to be proved wrong - to the benefit of our great football club.
  7. Zak Vyner

    I see that the BP is reporting that Zak is likely to start at Burnley. So we play the kid against a top Brighton side last year and watch him suffer, send him out on loan to gain experience and confidence, recall him and throw him in away to a Prem team with a great home record...... completely brainless! I just hope it's a false rumour.
  8. Strangest thing for me is the injury list - in the last 2 full seasons I only remember Little and Ayling being out, this season it's like the BRI down there! Add the form issues and I think he's just been unable to fix it, panicked and come up with some very questionable line-ups, tactics and substitutions.
  9. So depressed about our current situation I thought I'd try to understand what's so different with our team composition now compared with the last few months of last season and the start of this season, and whether we're good enough to get out of jail again. Broadly speaking, the team that saved us from relegation last season was as follows (record from 01 Feb 2016 : P17 W8 D3 L6 Pts 27 - top 6 form ) - O'Donnell, Matthews, Flint, Baker, Golbourne, Bryan, Smith, Pack, Freeman, Tomlin, Kodjia Of these, only 2 started at Forest last week (Flint and Bryan) - of the rest, fact is that 2 of our top performers during that spell have been long-term injured (Smith, Matthews), another 2 have returned/been sold to Villa (Baker, Kodjia), and 2 more who contributed massively have lost form (Tomlin, O'Donnell - now gone). During the past few months these departures, injuries and losses of form have collectively cost us, and for me, of the much heralded summer signings, only Tammy, Magners and lately Brownhill have impressed. MA and the scouting team have reinforced/rebuilt the spine of the team with 4 decent signings (Giefer, Hegeler, Wright and Djuric) - looking forward, we have to get Tomlin back playing in his best position, and include Reid, Pack and Golbourne (if we play 4 at the back) in the mix, and somehow try to keep Freeman. We also desperately need to sign a decent right back / wing-back in this window. Sorry, but there's no place in my squad for Engvall, Wilbraham, O'Dowda or Paterson - too early or not good enough. So with Fielding as back-up keeper, that's 16 players (plus O'Neil and Little if/when fit) who, on paper, look like they're good enough to replicate last season's achievement - we'll see! I deliberately haven't mentioned manager and tactics, but pretty much that is his record from last season - just saying.
  10. Ruby Derby crowd..?

    Tried the 'new stadium' rugby experience last night, such a different atmosphere to football and certainly wierd to find people around you in the Dolman leaping up and hollering whenever Exeter scored! Main issue for me was the bloke behind me in the drinks queue moaning non-stop about actually a nothing queue, and then commenting to his mate that he was a Rovers fan and was therefore a bit biased but here he was "in a f*****g queue for god's sake" and I thought then, my god how many others are there here like this, and I felt suddenly like we had been invaded by an alien life form and wanted it to be vs Leeds United on a Tuesday night, COYR!!
  11. Kodija - Departs for 11 Million (Merged)

    Maybe we'll find out more about Jimmy's desire to leave in the coming days, but I do know that French people are very proud and that footballers can have big egos, and I can't help but think that the Head Coach's comment that a player in his mid-twenties has the tactical nouse of an 18 year old academy player has motivated him too much! Honesty from LJ is refreshing yes, sometimes it's damaging too, lesson to be learned I think, I for one am really sorry that he's gone.
  12. Ticket Purchase

    Also worth pointing out (as experienced by one poster yesterday) that there is an issue if you log on as a ST holder and try to buy a ticket for a family member who has a Forever Bristol membership linked to your account. The system assumes you are not eligible to buy yet as an ST holder and blocks purchase, but it also prevents you buying a ticket for the associated family member! Club are looking into it, in the meantime log in using your family member's supporter number and your/his postcode in lower case as the password.
  13. Parking ticket around Cumberland Basin

    We used to park in exactly that area last season and then had a couple of council issued parking tickets, ultimately decided that £70 a pop (£35 if paid within 14 days I recall) was becoming too expensive, haven't parked there since! I did appeal to the council and receive a slightly snotty response saying that, even though I'd parked on a remote walkway that nobody uses alongside a double yellow line, I was still in contravention of the no waiting restriction. Worse thing about this is that, as ever on match days, they hide around the corner until kick off and then slime over and joyfully ticket us football fans, b******s!
