  1. City player of the season - Dasilva/Williams Top goal scorer - Wells League position - 13th Dark horse for top six - Coventry
  2. Rovers away losing 1-0 in that LDV area final. probably the worst feeling i've had at a game. will stay with me forever. Swansea away losing 7-1 was pretty bad. bubble game and all that malark that goes with it topped it off. Millwall away losing 1-0 as the OP mentioned. had exactly the same experience, was a terrible day. the following game was Rotherham at home 3-1, so made up for it. also this and also this

  4. probably achieve more than posting on a forum. i mean, we're talking about it for a start. powers that be will see that before they see anything on a forum or social media, i imagine. getting the message across is whats important right, rather than the materials used?

    East End

    this makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. i never saw the East End in its hay day. I only knew it as the Wedlock Stand, seats with no backs bolted into a terrace so shallow it was only suitable for standing anyway. i feel like i missed out. because i know that those days are gone forever. i was there for those years we had a section in the corner, opposite the away fans separated by netting across the middle. but i often wondered what it would of been like back in the day, packed side to side with city. amazing, i'll bet. and a sight for away fans in the opposite end i'm sure.
  6. Voted Player of the year: Dan Bentley. Easily. Young player of the year: Jay Dasilva. Easily. Champagne moment: Brownhill away at Cardiff will get a lot of mentions, but for me Brownhills last second winner at home to Charlton. Both from the guy who we clearly miss so much and knew we would.

    East End

    reading all these stories is quite emotional. i truly believe ashton gate lost a big part of its soul when those demolition trucks moved in. will the south stand ever have such an emotional attachment with so many people? i doubt it. just a big, lifeless, concrete stand like all the rest of them, with corporate lounges and big screens. needed to be redeveloped, thats obvious. but the potential was there for something far, far greater...
  8. was in Le Havre. 20% capacity. an interesting step forward though... https://www.dw.com/en/french-football-fans-return-to-stands-for-psg-vs-le-havre/a-54149795
  9. well those lads havent got a clue anyway. its actually painful having to listen to them. would pay double for and option to mute commentary. i watch games on robins tv in silence, cannot stand it.
  10. I will always remember him being in the yellow and green away shirt 1998/99. RIP Buster Footman. Love the idea a few have mentioned about wearing a tshirt to a game in winter next season, i would most definitely participate. I feel the cold more than most so was always amazed how he would be the same in all weathers!
  11. i would never forgive myself for leaving early and missing that. some great photos there TomF. brings it all back. desperately looking for me aged 12 in there somewhere. football at its peak, imho. the pitch. the nets. the ball. the kits. can't be beaten.
  12. at that point, it was most definitely over.
  13. will forever be the best game ive witnessed. never seen anything like that before and i dont expect i will ever see anything like it again. glad to say i stayed until the end. its never over til its over. to still be talking about an away game at mansfield town in the 3rd division 18 years later, just shows you how incredible that game was. i'll never, ever forget it.
