  1. Can only assume that venues WITH A CAPACITY OF 10k would be the measure as you can’t predict whether 9,999 or 10,001 will turn up unless pay on the day is scrapped throughout football ! On that basis I guess clubs like Wrexham , Notts County and Grimsby in the National league will require passports whereas many League 1 clubs and maybe even Luton in the championship may not !
  2. Just downloaded the NHS app . It takes five days for your vaccination record to pull through it seems ! Probably add a few more days to that with 10 million sports fans all downloading it !!
  3. Guilty verdict or not , that’s now JB’s 3rd court appearance for assault with a 4th happening soon . He almost blinds a youth player, beats the crap out of a teammate and serves time for doing likewise to some guy in Liverpool . Only football could pay someone with this track record a substantial salary to manage their business in the public eye . I love the game but it really is a total cesspit at times !
  4. Loving how Ayman winds up the opposition in an identical manner to how Grealish does it ! I really can’t recall us having this type of player in our armoury before !
  5. I don’t agree that it’s a case of “ win or out” but it is the case that NP’s stats are even worse than Benny Lennartson over the 31 games that he managed us and he’s generally considered to be our worst ever manager . Our next 3 games are crucial and we could easily be just one place off the drop zone by then if our form continues . There will surely be a tipping point for even the most supportive fans if we find ourselves within striking distance of 22nd place over the next 2 or 3 weeks
  6. Would love to see Saikou get some decent game time . He’s an interesting character to say the least too . Saw him playing for Nic Wanderers under 16’s not too long after he came to the the UK with his Mum . Was like watching a fully grown man knocking little kids about for 90 mins ! We really have nothing to lose giving the lad a chance !
  7. I’ve heard that Joey has ditched the use of a “ false 9” in favour of a” false 1” . Exeter have only had 5 shots on target !!
  8. All much a do about nothing if you ask me

    This is going to be messy and drawn out I think . The club will not sack him whilst there’s a chance he’ll walk of his own accord on the grounds of Poor health . The latter option being much the cheaper option no doubt ! Expect to see CF being given the role as indefinite cover for NP in the hope that he’ll resign anyway ! Pretty sure the Sags would like to see Barton gone too but will likewise hold out to see if he actually gets convicted of either of his assault charges so they can sack him for nowt ! What a basket case this City is
  10. And Mitrovic just netted his 19th goal of the season in the 16th game ! Nuts !
  11. Totally backfiring so far . I understand not wanting to splash millions on players with our finances under pressure, BUT why oh why did we not get a couple of loanees in from the Prem like just about every other club in the division has ? Still come at a cost but just a fraction of the cost of a permanent signing . Really odd that we haven’t a single loan player to bolster the squad .
  12. It was Dalgish’s face in the next shot that made me chuckle . He was pissing himself laughing
  13. Glad you had to spell that not me
  14. Setting aside our own form for a minute , it has to be said that post lockdown the ridiculous gulf between the sides with Prem money on board and those without ( and struggling financially now) is utterly laughable this season . The top 3 will , if present trends continue , be approx 30-40 points clear of the 7th placed side by the and of the season . Bournemouth are presently creating a gap of 0.8 points per game between them and 7 th spot ! Whatever happened to anyone can beat anyone in this league ?
  15. He’s saying that NP made that sub in anger and to flex his managerial muscles rather than making a sub to benefit the team !
  16. Horrendous management by Pearson . One mistake and you’re subbed after 30 mins !! Now have just one sub left due to the Manager having a hissy fit over 1 error !
  17. Always loved the effort put into the song we had for Norman Hunter to the tune of Amazing Grace . Literally contained one word repeated 14 times “ Norman “
  18. Funniest one I remember was “ my old man said be a Rovers fan , I said …… . My mum always mis heard that one and always thought it ended “Bob Bob Wallace you’re a ****” . I remember she eventually asked my old man who Bob Wallace was and why City fans didn’t like him !
  19. Sat next to a fella yesterday who wasn’t too keen on the quality of the songs at the Gate these days and it got me thinking of the chants of old . All time classics such as “ you’re gonna get your ******* heads kicked in” and “ you’ll never take the East End “ remind me of my formative years in the East End . My all time fav being the one about eating a dead cat from a dustbin , I just wondered what other little ditties are most missed from yester year ? Many for various reasons clearly won’t have aged well but just thought I’d throw the question out there !
  20. Absolutely gutted . As a young teenager in the 80’s , to me , he simply WAS Bristol City . Without his passion and drive we could have disappeared completely.
  21. No one seems to be asking why they were laughing and hugging an opponent within seconds of the game ending ? I mean , do either of them look like they give a flying @@@@ that we’ve just put on an abject performance?
  22. I’d have banned them any way just for laughing and joking with an opposition player after such a poor performance!
  23. Yes !!!!! What a peach of a goal !!!
  24. Swansea will have 8 left on the pitch by half time if they carry on like this !
  25. No . First time in 15 years not renewed . My Son’s in his final year at Uni and will rarely get back for games and I can’t stand going on my Jack Jones . Taking a season off until he’s back .
