    City Number Plates

    Not City related either, but when I was growing up in Melksham in the 70s a local building firm had a mini van with the number AAA 999. I often wonder what happened to that plate.

    That really wasn’t altogether that bad.

    General consensus among everyone I spoke to after the game tonight, both City and Baggies support, was that we didn’t take our chances early doors and they were clinical on the night. This is backed by the stats where we had 11 shots on target and 2 goals from 23 attempts, and they had 7 shots on target and 4 goals from 11 attempts. Aside from Hunt I thought most players did ok tonight. Kelly had a few dodgy moments first half but improved through the game. Generally we looked good going forward and again the subs, particularly Fammi and Niclas, made an impact. A number of WBA supporters commented to me that they were happy they didn’t start. All in all, while disappointed with the result, I am not downcast about the performance. I look forward to the trip to Wigan with anticipation rather than trepidation.

    Ooh look!!!! Next stage of AG redevelopment now announced

    No doubt that this an impressive looking facility and a real boon to sport in Bristol and the local BS3 economy. Personally I have no interest in Basketball. Having watched a few games while living up north I found it pedestrian and would have been better staying in a bar until the last five minutes. Now if Lansdown wanted to add a women’s netball team to the portfolio I’d be up for watching that. At top levels it is very fast and skilful and like basketball on speed.

    Taunton Town

    With City playing Wigan on Friday night it might be worth a trip to Wordsworth Drive for their FA cup game with Bitton on Saturday

    Any Sheffield United players you might want for City

    I’ve liked Basham for a long time. A strong versatile player who can play in defence or midfield. Apart from ‘taking one for the team’ when ruthlessly blocking O’Dowda, he was excellent today.

    Beadle gone from Hereford

    He’d never have lasted as long as he did if those on here had been in charge.

    Freddie Hinds (Merged)

    Does anyone know if Freddie Hinds is injured? On a season long loan at Wrexham, as far as I can see he has yet to be named in a match day squad let alone get any minutes on the pitch.

    “I Can’t rule out championship players”

    I hate to say it but English clubs need to be more realistic about the valuation of their players. One of the reasons that the Premiership is so full of mediocre overseas players (and there are an awful lot of them) is that they are half the cost of English players. Aside from the big premier leagues in Spain, Italy, France and Germany, where a player from a big team can command large fees, the rest of the leagues in Europe are selling leagues, and because of lack of money are cheap That said, if English clubs want to be successful in Europe perhaps they should buy British and appoint a British manager. A paltry 9 European titles since the birth of the Premier league, compared to 20 European titles (8 European cups, 8 inter city fairs/UEFA cups and 4 cup winners cups) in the 25 years prior makes you wonder what many of these ‘superstar’ players and coaches have added to our game. Not European success that’s for sure.

    The Power of Purple

    We will be wearing purple and lime a lot this season, almost certainly more times than the white and black away kit. Because of league rules about badges we can’t wear the black shorts with anything other than the white shirts, so any opposition team we play with white shorts will almost certainly see us play in purple and lime. WBA away could be interesting though. Red shirts with lime shorts anyone.

    MARLON

    It’s nice to see that so many on here who lived in the darkness have now stepped into the light and recognise the value of Pack. I can only hope that the idiot near me at MK Dons a few years back who blamed Pack for breathing is one of them. His renewed contract was the signing of the summer for me.

    Local sides in the FA Cup today.

    Melksham for me too. It’s the town I was brought up in and where most of my family still lives.

    SL will need to build the indoor Arena now

    The arena is not really a political matter. It is about providing a wanted public amenity at an affordable business cost. We can all complain about politicians in line with who we may support. During the last 30/40 years all the main political parties have held power in Bristol and each of them has made a total Heinz of the job, and neither of the two elected mayors for Bristol has shown any improvement on the old mayor and corporation. But the transport issues are not for Rees to solve are they? Don’t we have another elected berk, mayor of the south west or something, who has coordinated transport policy in his portfolio?

    SL will need to build the indoor Arena now

    The residents in all the new housing in Patchway are going to be chuffed. Unless they run more trains into Patchway or open North Filton on the Henbury loop line to passenger traffic a bloody big car park will be needed. I feel an RPZ or two coming on.
  14. Not only negative by your own admission, but bloody patronising as well. If we are honest with ourselves we will come to your conclusion that we are considerably weaker than last season. Well I for one am always honest with myself (what’s the point of being otherwise), have taken a considered view of the transfer window and concluded that we are not weaker.

    We can sum this season up in one word

    What a load of tosh! We may or may not finish in mid table but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring or mediocre. The season could be one of exciting football, high scoring matches, and nail biting finishes. I disagree that we’re weaker but time will tell which of us is right. A finish above 11th says we’re not. and the point is to support your team through Hell and high water. If you don’t want to bother go and glory hunt down the Bridge, or if your interested in a relegation battle go watch the Palace.
