  1. Well this was fun. I literally knocked up that listicle about Ashton Court in 25 minutes. In a list of all the 600 articles I've written this year, I wouldn't even want to read it again. My mum told me it was shit. If I'd have known it would be the subject of a thread on the great OTIB that I'd get pinged about two months later, I think I would have put in a bit more effort. Maybe. However, since you're all here and polishing up your anti-Bristol Post barbs, can I point you in the direction of a clickbait listicle article that I DID take ages to write..... It's a love letter to Ashton and Ashton Gate, in the form of an A to Z guide to people who don't know how great it is.... https://www.bristolpost.co.uk/news/bristol-news/ashton-z-what-makes-gate-3664733
  2. This is interesting, and right in many ways, but in my experience, what happens is that content that people say they miss - in depth reports and investigations into councils, planning, decisions (proper old school local reporting) - people don't want to read. It doesn't really get shared on social media - which is where most people see most of their local news content. But what DOES get shared and read is some less weighty stuff that many deride as 'clickbait'. We all have our own little social media bubble and depending on how big we make it, only a certain amount and type of stuff gets through. yeah the trick is to try to do both.
  3. Well this is a weird one. I live in Bedminster and have got a season ticket. Who are you on about? :laugh: I can! Weirdly, I only just got the notification that I'd been tagged in this thread, months later, but yes I can! ha ha
  4. THANK YOU!!! finally someone with some taste!!! (nah it wasn't that good at all tbf) Thank you.
  5. And throwing in 'why anyone would want to see that' was, I thought, obvious, given it's a highlight of my day to walk down my road and see the stadium (pre-lockdown obvs). But there you go.... yeah it is really weird. i agree
  6. Yep. I was given the job of writing it. That style of faux sarcasm was in vogue about 3-5 years ago, so it was a bit frustrating being asked to still do it like that. But hey ho. We all have to do things in our jobs that we'd rather not. Anyway, I thought I'd go completely over the top and make it really obvious it was ridiculous.....
  7. Yes, it is a wind up. :laugh: I dunno. Maybe. We're told every day how shit we are, so i don't think any of the reporters are under any delusions tbf
  8. Me also. Or at least, run it like this. *sigh*
  9. Here Maisie W is front row of flag day, bless her. Reckon she's about three there, which would make it 2000, maybe 2001. The kit will probably date it better.
  10. Did an article for the Post about this about two years ago - included a pic of Flag Day at the 3 Lions with her sat at the front aged 3. I'll dig it out in a minute...
  11. It's interesting that you sadly seem incapable of not sinking to personal insults or attacks, and yet have still failed to adequately explain how the situation isn't that Bristol City Council's taxpayers are continuing to pump more and more millions into Bristol Energy - lots more than originally planned at the outset. Yes, the council set up Bristol Energy with investment, but it is turning into the kind of bottomless pit never envisaged at the start. Do you work for Bristol Energy?
  12. Daily Mail? The Post hasn't been owned by the Daily Mail for years and years. We're now owned by, effectively, the Mirror. Bristol Energy would've gone bust by now were it not for the millions invested in it by Bristol City Council.
  13. doesn't seem to affect Thatchers, mind
